Little Men

They have made us proud, instilling in us, time and again, a great love for the game. We take inspiration from these teens and toddlers who’ve grown up to win our hearts. And we also take this opportunity to wish the handsome Sachin Tendulkar a very happy birthday.

The Lion, the Pony and Your Wardrobe

In the 19th Century, tennis players and polo players alike were quite dissatisfied with their sports garments. Disgruntled players often took the field wearing long sleeved, button-down shirts in unsuitable fabrics which hampered their agility, speed and flexibility. They must have also complained about how they didn’t feel ‘sporty’ enough.

Charlotte Cooper, English Tennis Player (1870-1966)

In the 1920’s, the 7-time Grand Slam tennis champion, ‘Crocodile’ or René Lacoste decided to get rid of the long sleeves and make the shirts in breathable piqué cotton. This shirt was now extremely wearable and comfortable. And it was ‘sporty’ and fashionable too.

The dissatisfied polo players heard about René’s fabulous tennis shirts and decided to wear them on the field. And before long, to René’s dismay perhaps, the tennis shirts were referred to as the “polo” shirt. And young Mr. Lauren literally capitalised this opportunity to create his 1972 clothing line, Polo. Today the tennis/polo shirt is also a cricket shirt, a golf shirt, sometimes a football shirt and it has entered your wardrobe too.

The Sher Singh polos are India and Cricket inspired. The details symbolise the union between the giant sport and the great heritage of the country. It derives from international styles but is proudly made in (and for) India.

Wear to This Summer

Going on a Summer Holiday? Travel around the world with your new BFF’s Ashlee and Ashlene because these two dresses are just the right Summer companions.

  • You can take them anywhere because they don’t take too much space in your suitcase;
  • They don’t get crumpled;
  • They are stylish and cool on sunny afternoons;
  • You can wear them in the evenings too;
  • They are sleeveless and just the right length for those bare legs (not too short) and
  • Colours and patterns are just what Summer is all about.

Why Colour Your Week

The colour you wear affects your happiness. It’s true.

At least, many people believe that the seven days of the week have their respective governing planets. Monday is named after the Moon, Tuesday is named after Mars, Wednesday after Mercury, Saturday after Saturn and so on. These planets are in turn linked to specific colours that are good for you. And even if you are a pragmatic, non-romantic, ‘grown up’ person, you will agree that wearing a little colour does cheer you up (besides making you look good).

White for purity and peace. Besides, it’s an essential color in your wardrobe.

Red signifies passion and love. Also, it’s bold and sexy.

Green brings you prosperity and it signifies regeneration besides being a Summer favourite.

Yellow symbolises enlightenment. The perfect colour for your sunny day out.

Indigo is mysterious. When you wear it, it’s sharp, fresh and chic.

Violet is regal and a lovely name. Don’t you feel special when you wear the colour?

Pink is happiness and love. The perfect colour on your day off.

City Snapshots

The whole cricket fever has also got us (more) interested in our cities and so some of us are planning a tour together. But before we do that, we asked some of our other colleagues who’ve already been there and done that.

Bangalore
“When I was in Bangalore a few years ago it was so green and fresh. I liked the fact that it was close to Mysore and I also liked the hotel we stayed at. I liked the snails there. They were very weird with their conical shells.”

Chennai
“The food with all the chutneys! I can just eat them. I loved the temples – beautiful architecture. I loved the silk saris and it was fascinating to see how people personalised the Chennai diamonds by inscribing messages on them.”

Delhi
“I like the fact that Delhi is a kind of place where you can remain unseen if you want or you can go out and meet everyone whenever you want. And there is so much variety in terms of food, places and people. You can go and watch a jazz concert or go partying at night.”

Kolkata
“I liked Kolkata because it’s really old and vintage with its little streets and archways. You can almost imagine the old British men and women walking around the city.”

Mumbai
“The thing about Mumbai is that you can’t miss the energy. I liked the feeling of being next to the sea. I liked the coast. But most importantly, I think I like Mumbai because of the people.”

The Flashback Cafe: Backstreet’s Back

You know the moves. He knows the moves. She knows the moves. And admit it, you all know the lyrics. Growing up wouldn’t be the same without them.

Take a break for five minutes and revisit the old Backstreet 90s: The music, the dance moves, the heartbreaks and the hairstyles.

The Anatomy of a Shirt

This isn’t a biology class but it is as important because one has to know what one wears. This is the basic shirt dissected.

Cricket & Cupcakes

India’s playing? Apart from going out to a Sports bar or reclining on the sofa with the T.V. remote in hand, how else do you support the team? Surprisingly, Cricket cupcakes are unusually good when teamed with your celebratory alcoholic concoctions. And when India wins and if some cupcakes are still there in the fridge, you can take them out for a grand celebration.

Here’s what you’ll need to make what one of our colleagues made for the match yesterday. She called them the ‘Cinnapple Muffins’. They were delicious.

  • 1/2 cup of castor sugar
  • 3/4 cup of apples
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

The Steps:

  • Line the cupcake tray with cup cake holders.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • Whisk the egg well for 5 minutes.
  • Add the milk and oil to the whisked egg.
  • Add all the dry ingredients to the mixture of the egg, milk and oil.
  • Add the cut pieces of apples with the honey and vanilla essence.
  • Pour the mixture into the cup cake holders.
  • Cook for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees in the oven
  • Frost when the cupcakes are completely cool.

Serve them with some Cricket-icing.
