That Thai thing: How Bangkok retains its ability to bounce back

What strikes me as most extraordinary about Bangkok is that despite political upheaval and unrest, things take only a couple of months to return to normal, writes Vir Sanghvi.

What you must know about your body and its chakras

Yoga looks at chakras as the body's energy points. And they are located almost exactly where the hormone-secreting glands that connect our mind, emotions and body are situated, writes Shikha Sharma.

Bukhara: It’s old but it works

Sometimes it takes an anniversary to remember and celebrate a great restaurant. Bukhara dates from a different era but its food is great. And this one has a soul, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Listen to the pouring rain...

When the monsoon comes, it brings with it the nay-sayers, who moan about the onset of the rains. But it’s the time to leave all your inhibitions aside and embrace the promise of the season, writes Seema Goswami.

Get a clean bill to health

Personal hygiene is important in any season, but particularly during the monsoon. Follow few good habits and keep skin infections, body odour, scalp infections, bad breath, etc at bay, writes Shikha Sharma.

A smart way to sell a smartphone

Serious about mobile phones? A brand called Xiaomi is on its way. Rajiv Makhni explains what the Xiaomi craze is all about – from its much-in-demand ‘only sold online’ model to updating their entire phone OS and features ‘Over the Air’ every single week.

Tired of the shouty journos on TV supposedly interviewing a newsmaker? Well, you are not the only one. There are a whole bunch of those in media today. Seema Goswami tells us what makes up for a good interview.

Are you prepared for a driverless car?

The fantasy of driverless cars has been with us for ages. Movies and sci-fi books have had them and various companies have given it a go. It's only now that new experiments have shown that this may soon be a reality, writes Rajiv Makhni.

Can milk be bad for you?

Do you feel gassy, nauseated and bloated after eating a dairy product? Chances are you have lactose intolerance which means your body can't digest lactose. Shikha Sharma tells you how to deal with it.

Chubby is fine, let your child know that

Often children pick cues from the way elders behave in their presence. So, if your child refuses to eat a sinful chocolate cake, blame the bowl of salad you've been tucking in routinely, writes Seema Goswami.

Mind what you eat: decoding labels

Cool packaging often hides the unhealthy truth within. So read between the lines. Don't get carried away with screaming words like 'sugar free' and 'cholesterol free' and 'diet', writes Shikha Sharma.

Boycott restaurants that don't respect you

The possibility of good food, ambience and sheer demand is no reason for customers to take nonsense from restaurants. In sheer contrast to such places are chains like Sagar in Delhi and Soam in Mumbai, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Heart of the sea

A week-long Mediterranean voyage on SeaDream II in Rome is a far better experience than you can ever imagine: a sort of once-in-a-lifetime trip, writes Vir Sanghvi.

This already omnipotent and omnipresent operating system will now dominate and wrestle its way to other areas than just your phone, writes Rajiv Makhni.
