The wheel of fortune

From the heights of good fortune to the depths of ignominy, fate can turn full circle

From being the toast of the city, a perpetual page-3 personality, a flamboyant businessman who was hailed as the king of good times, to having his various properties in India auctioned, being given a year’s time to save his London house, his accounts being frozen, cases slapped and court appearances becoming routine – Vijay Mallya’s life reads almost like a text book case of the vagaries of fortune, and how no one, however exalted, can secure oneself above the hand of fate. The world is not enough for the beleaguered Bangalore businessman. From the heights of good fortune to the depths of ignominy, his example has demonstrated how life can swing wildly from one end of the spectrum to the other, in the flash of a moment. Blame it on karma if you will. The fact is that the good we do precedes us, and the evil lives on long after us. A few miscalculations and machinations gone wrong and a demi-god bites the dust. There’s a lesson here for lesser mortals as well. Stack up on the good karma, atone for the lapses of judgement, and don’t disparage the lower-downs on your way up, as your retreat will be on the shoulders of those very people. Keep the faith and may fate and fortune ever smile upon us all, including on our Bangalore’s king of good times once again!

B

engaluru is a traveller’s delight. It starts with the air conditioned Volvo buses and the pre-paid taxi counter at the airport. Not to mention, the pre-paid auto counters at the city’s railway stations. But the finest example is the ease with which you can navigate the central business district of MG Road and around with the Big 10 buses. You can hop on and hop off at any point after your shopping expedition. But the finest experience will be the first reach of the Namma Metro train running from Old Madras Road to MG Road. Happy travels.

Auto-rickshaws are Bangalore’s ubiquitous mode of transport, easy to hail down, with the metre box that declares the fare fairly. Ideal to use for short distances, or even long ones for that matter, or as a transit transport to get to the metro station. BUSES

Bangalore has a vast network of BMTC buses plying within the city. The best way is to check locally for routes and bus numbers to reach a particular destination. Be prepared for some wait time though. METRO

The Bangalore metro rail system offers good connectivity and speed, and is especially useful for cross-city commute to avoid road traffic. Regulars can opt for a metro pass that can be loaded with currency and swiped at stations. (See detailed metro route map inside).

W

ith Bengaluru, the sobriquets keep getting added up. From Air Conditioned City to Aviation Capital to Garden City, this small town turned technopolis has added a new word to the American lexicon: ‘Bangalored’. It means ‘to lose one’s job’ as a result of off shoring work to India. That’s not all. The city is emerging as a medical tourism hub in India by offering ‘First World Service at Third World Cost’. What’s more, the best and the brightest multinationals are spicing up the retail scene by test-marketing large format stores like Reebok, Levi’s, Adidas, Esprit and Nautica. It’s become a ‘yuppie heaven’. Now that’s yet another sobriquet for the city. With the Metro Rail opening in phases, things are getting better by the day. Visit the city and be bowled over.

Ramzan special

INDULGE IN THE GOODIES OF IFTAR AT SHEESH KEBAB, AND NOW GO CASHLESS TOO! BY LAKSHMI PRAKASH

Ramzan, or Ramadan as it is also known, is almost halfway through and the food stalls in and around Bangalore are in full swing providing pots of haleem, sizzling kebabs and aromatic biryanis for the foodies of Bangalore. If you do not want to carry cash, worry not, you can now use multiple mobile banking apps to pay for your indulgences. Digital payment is making it easier for both the customers and the stall owners. It gives them the option of leaving their wallet back home and come carefree to the mela. From Mosque Road, Frazer Town to Johnson Market and Bannerghatta Road, quite a few areas are visited by city residents every year. The charm of the Iftar food trail for many is to hop among over-crowded streets and go from one stall to another, sampling 62 | MAY SECOND HALF |2019

the famous haleems, paya soups, kebabs, brain puff, kheema samosas, qubaani-kameetha and other delicious delights in a variety of options that will definitely make you enjoy your Iftar treats.

BENGALURU


Most people prefer open spaces. Sheesh Kebab which opened in December 2018 in Frazer Town looks like it is taken straight out of a postcard from the Middle East. Fountains, royal seating arrangements, private dine-in sections, traditional swings, open kitchen – these are the features which add beauty to the beholder’s eye as you step in. But a word of caution to vegetarians! Their menu is a meat lover’s paradise and is dominated by Persian delights such as Polo (the Persian version of biryani), rich gravies and flatbreads, and the most succulent and flavourful kebabs ever, starting with the Kabab-E-Makhsoos – mutton kheema wrapped around boneless chicken that is marinated in the chef’s special recipe and grilled on skewers.

Once you become a regular at the Ramzan food festival, you will not stop going every year. The options which are available at the festival are plenty and each dish is unique and delicious in its own way. In between

bites, get a few bytes of the local history as well as the tradition of Ramzan and fasting in Islam. Avail all these dishes in the comforts of some nice restaurants without fear of getting drenched in the rains or having your wallets picked. A meat eater’s paradise, Sheesh Kebab wins for its authentic Persian kebabs, great ambience and pet-friendly policy and this year, it comes with the addition of convenience in payment as well. Enjoy the treats of Iftar and make the most of this culinary indulgence.

T

he city is famous for its bars and pubs. It’s called the Beer Capital of India. With good reason. But the best reason to pub hop? It’s cosmopolitan crowd and the niche pubs that serve a select clientele. There are lounge spaces for the ladies, retro lovers and jazz enthusiasts. Not to mention, resto-bars, sports bars, roof-top bars, hookah bars, dance bars and cigar lounges for the casual and adventurous. Not to mention, the city’s first wine boutique pub. Reason enough to rewind, reboot and restart. *Alcohol may not be served at some of these places, as per Supreme Court regulation. Please call the pub/restaurant to confirm. BENGALURU

ith the city’s High Street keeping strides with the ever-mushrooming malls, Bengaluru has taken retail therapy to a new high. No longer is the city confined to the central business districts of MG Road and Commercial Street or the traditional business districts of Majestic and KR Market. Malls, boutiques and department stores have mushroomed in every nook and cranny, bringing comfort goods closest to you. If you are new to the city, your visit isn’t complete without a visit to its silk and jewellery hotspots. Not to mention, handicraft stores for their sandalwood and antique masterpieces. BENGALURU

Very often, summer comes with its own kind of celebration, it is the time to rejoice and relax. To oat in and out as easily as the evening breeze. It was then that we found ourselves turning to the palaces of sultans in Tangier, Morocco for artistic inspiration. This season we’ve reinterpreted our orals- both prints and embroideries inspired from the middle east. From the warmth of red, terracotta, rust to the balming effects of grey, mint, blush and ivory- the Ritu Kumar Spring Summer 2019 collection is everything that epitomizes a traveler’s spirit. Untamed, joyous and uid, this collection embodies a spirit of living in the now.


Days of summer are bright and happy, just the way these clothes intend to make you feel. A modern interpretation of our history going back to the Mughal era, our festive collection is both nomadic and dreamy. From ecru, crepes, chiffons to chanderi- it's perfect for the onset of the new season. Dressier prints and modern cuts make for perfect occasion wear. Subtle embroidery on shades of mint, ivory, blush and yellow golds are found on our contemporary silhouettes. This Eid, get ready with Ritu Kumar. Shop for occasion wear that is simple, stylish and striking. Choose from a wide variety of kurtas, long dresses, Indo-western ensembles, anarkalis and more.

engaluru is a metaphor of an India that has arrived on the global scene. And this begins with worldclass self-sustaining ‘mixed use’ townships. Not to mention, smart digital homes that let you control your household appliances, lights and even the garage door from the comfort of your office. All you need to do is press a button or swipe a card. That’s making the most of smart technology where Wi-Fi enabled houses can automatically take care of all your household needs like dusting, cooking, laundry, bathroom, security and entertainment. You can not only watch what’s happening at home through Wi-Fi enabled webcams but also control the temperature of your fridge and microwave. This is your very own Utopia. Make the most of it.

Breathe new life into your tresses INVEST IN QUALITY “ME TIME” AT OMBRE SALON FOR HAIR AND BEAUTY SPA SERVICES BY LAKSHMI PRAKASH A salon visit is a great way to perk yourself up and a visit to Ombre, the unisex salon in the hidden streets of Indiranagar just takes the experience up several notches. Founded by beauty and fashion expert Revathi Rukmangathan, previously a software engineer by profession, this passion-turned-profession salon offers specialised skin care, hair care and make-up services. The interiors of Ombre Salon are accentuated with black and white furniture. Neatly organised into various sections, the salon uses top notch products and grooming techniques by highly trained specialists. They offer all the latest treatments in beauty and hair spa services. To experience their services first hand, I dropped in at Ombre and decided to go 102 | MAY SECOND HALF |2019

My therapist Passang from Darjeeling suggested the L’Oreal hair spa. He starts by observing my scalp and washing my hair with L’Oreal deep cleansing hair shampoo and does not use any conditioner. He then applies a hair cream by L’Oreal, section by section

covering the hair roots and the entire length of the hair using a brush. After this he massages my hair using light strokes for relaxation. He massages my hair using light strokes for 15 minutes to stimulate my hair follicles and also for relaxation. He ends it by giving a quick shoulder massage. After this I am asked to take steam for 10 minutes to ensure the pores are opened to absorb the cream. The 40-minute ritual ends with a rinse using only water. A serum is applied at the end to control the frizz. The whole session left my hair feeling soft and smooth. The therapists are trained regularly to do an excellent job and you can see the same when you experience the quality services. The best part is you can opt to take both the hair spa and pedicure together as well if you are running short of time, and to optimise the in-between waiting period as your hair conditioner takes effect. It is also a great time to invest in yourself while making that much needed ‘me time’. So head right in to Ombre Salon without much ado, and make heads turn!

f you’ve never been to these places around Bengaluru, you are definitely missing something. There’s Bannerghatta National Park for the butterfly park, tiger and lion safari, Shivanasamudram for its waterfalls during July and August, hill station Devarayanadurga, Hesaraghatta for its boating and windsurfing opportunities, Ramohalli for the fabled big banyan tree spread over 4 acres, Shivaganga hill for trekking and mountain climbing, Channapatna for its wooden toys, Mekedatu for its picturesque locale where river Cauvery offers an awe-inspiring sight and Kolar Gold Fields, the world’s deepest gold mine. If you want to visit any of these places, one call to a tour operator or even a car rental service should do the trick.
