here are always a few classic pieces by wearing which you can go to work, catch up with friends or even attend a wedding. Chikan worked attire is one of such pieces. Bringing this handcrafted beauty all the way from Lucknow is Bina Rao who puts an array of lovely sartorial choices for Vizagites in her home-based boutique, Binaca Creations, in Jaideep Apartments, in Kirlampudi lay out. Before you go, please drop your pre-conceived notion that you won’t have much choices as it’s not a full-edge showroom. The moment you see her meticulously picked up collection you will regret why you didn’t go there before. At the ofng are stitched, semi-stitched and unstitched kurtis and dress materials. The fabrics are in pure georgette, faux georgette, crepe, cotton, kota, malmal and the likes. There are short, medium, long and full-length kurtis. The pure georgette ones are available only as unstitched fabrics. For special occasions the ones in silk are best buys. One also has choices of saris in cotton, kota, silk, georgette etc. Cotton ones look quite smart. For a price around Rs.1,000, they make good picks for ofce wear. If you swoon over regal

charm, then we suggest you look at an off-white sari in shadow and Mukesh work (Rs.11,500) or that pure white whole body work pure georgette sari (Rs.18,500). Men too can go ethnic with one of those beautifully chikan worked kurtas available in white as well as lovely hues. Depending on the amount of work, a piece can cost between Rs.900- 3000. Even the little ones don’t get disappoint here, as Bina has clothes for them too. For girls there are cute frocks and chudidaar-kurti-dupatta sets in sizes from 14 to 32 are available. The price starts from Rs.200. For boys there are kurta and paijama sets in 18 to 36 size and cost between Rs.450-1100. It is soon going to host an exhibition in Ambica Sea Green Hotel.

CAPRICORN

(Jan 21- Feb 18)

Lucky for you: 3, Pink

(Oct 23- Nov 21)

In terms of work it is unlikely to be a bright time. So don't count on a sharp salary rise, promotion or immediate implementation of your project. Progress will undoubtedly occur, but outward circumstances will keep holding it back. The love life will bring little dynamics. You or your partner may not be satisfied with such a state of things, but there's nothing you can do about it. You are in a winning situation if you plan a wedding or other celebration.

You will face a curious and ambiguous situation. Be careful when doing things that your family definitely won't approve of. Work and business will not bring big victories. Those who possess freedom of action at work will receive advantages. In love life you may face some obstacles. You need to be as considerate as your opinion contradicts the one held by the majority in your family. Avoid creating any reason for a conflict.

You may face a confident standing at work and slightly unstable situation in personal life. It is unlikely that you will receive a massive shock, but if you are not careful you may invite quarrels. Businessmen will solve their pressing challenges without difficulty. Be vigilant. Love life will be a bit complicated because of sweetheart’s lack of understanding. Open confrontation is unlikely, but some discordance disputes may take place.

LIBRA Lucky for you: 21, Beige

SCORPIO Lucky for you: 7, Red

It is a remarkable time. At work you may have to drastically revise your plans. Pull yourself together and stay focused. If you are self-employed your key task is to concentrate on the main project. Everything will proceed peacefully in the sensory-emotional sphere. Be gentle with your significant other and devote all your free time to home. If necessary, explain the situation to your dear ones. They will understand. Remember your friends, even in the heat of work.

AQUARIUS Lucky for you: 1, White

(Nov 22 –Dec 20)

Things will turn out quite well, though not always to the full. Use your capabilities. Strengthen your forces, focus on specific tasks. By the end of the month you will be ready with an excellent foundation. In love life you are unlikely to fulfil the cherished dreams. You are not the Messiah, but if you have objective knowledge that can help others, you have to share it with others. Do not make haste in personal relationships.

SAGITTARIUS Lucky for you: 2, Peach

(Feb 18 –Mar 20)

You will feel a high-quality surge of vitality. Fate will empower you with a lot of bonuses. It will be much more important to allocate your capabilities rather than seek to obtain new ones. At work, your will be in a difficult, albeit manageable situation. Try and focus on the concerns of your partner. Make sure your relationships are in strong harmony so that you can overcome any obstacles together, basing your actions on sincerity and impartiality.

PISCES

Lucky for you: 6, Maroon

ARIES Lucky for you: 18, Wine

(April 20- May 22)

(March 21- April 19)

Lucky for you: 9, Orange

GEMINI

(June 21- July 20) It is an unstable but positive time. Entrepreneurship will witness a complicated situation. Don’t be disheartened because you will discover new capabilities. Pull yourself together and constantly work. Professionals will be able to improve their career prospects. Overall love life will be fine, despite a few glitches. Try to take it easy and stay calm, even if you are overwhelmed with emotions. Your primary weapon is analytical thinking.

CANCER Lucky for you: 14, Silver

It is a quiet time for business. No dynamic events are on the anvil. Avoid "signing up" for third-party projects. Don't hurry, as you don't have the necessary resources. The sensually emotional sphere will be a little less bright. Your best option is to devote all your free time to your family. This time will be really important, both for you and for those dear to you. You may be showered with a couple of unexpected bonuses.

(May 23- June 20)

Business will develop well. Initially you will "bounce around" in different directions, but everything will fall into place. The first 20 days will be a great time to experiment. There is nothing exceptional for employed. But those who run their own business will receive a well-deserved reward, directly proportional to their efforts. In terms of sensory-emotional sphere, do not even try to suppress your emotions; do what you feel appropriate, and be free in your choice.

For businessmen, it will be a difficult time. But don't underestimate your own power. This time can be used as a break to accumulate forces and resources. Employed will have nothing to worry about. Get ready to take tactical decisions. In love life, things will turn out positive. Your significant other will be entirely devoted to you. The list of your friends will grow larger. Live and feel your life here and now.

Taurus Lucky for you: 11, Cream

(July 21- Aug 22)

You will experience amazing situations, although not all of them will have a positive ending. It will not bring any major harm, but it might cause some minor problems. Don’t squander the opportunities. In terms of business, you will have to put all gears in motion. If you are employed, it will be logical to apply all the forces and means towards total modernization. Your performance makes you leap forward. Love life will bloom with unexpected colours.

(Aug 23- Sep 22)

One way or another, business and work spheres will be very fruitful. It is vital to correctly set your priorities, for you'll have ample possibilities and resources at hand, but timing could be an issue. Success is apparent. Love life will be without bumps. Petty domestic quarrels are expected. Pay more attention to your partner, who will be vulnerable to temptations. Focus on solving pressing problems; sometimes you may have to sacrifice work to the benefit of your family.

Present were Shalini Modani, Shikha Sharma, Vandana Bajaj Partani, Shivani Shroff, Shobha Sudhakar and Shalini Agarwal. Whether it is for a housewife or a working woman, this kind of ‘day out’ is very important as it takes her away not only physically but also mentally from her set routine.
