It’s about style and solace, and nothing comforts me superior to a sari.
I tend to search for adornments more regularly than garments. The greater part of my gems is from the Amrapali store.
Workmanship… those are the acquisitions that happen each month… more frequently than garments and gems.

Beauty is imperative; I wouldn’t go for anything noisy.
Whites, soul and yellows; I’ve recently opened up to reds too.
My mom was into chiffons and mum-in-law into handlooms; thus my closet has the best of both universes. Case in point, I’ve acquired a Zarine Khan sari from the ’70s, from my mum-in-law. To that, I have included a genuine gold outskirt which was a piece of the Chanderi sari that my mother gave me, and I’ve worn it to some critical workmanship displays in Europe.

StayGlad a mobile marketplace for on-demand beauty services, has raised an undisclosed amount in Series A funding from Silicon Valley-based VC firm Bessemer Venture Partners.
Anil Joshi, former CEO of Lakme Lever, also invested in this round, StayGlad said in a press statement.
The startup, run by Bengaluru-based Glow Prime Technologies Pvt Ltd, will use the money raised to expand operations and strengthen its technology backend.
“Demand for beauty services is at an inflection point in India. Add to this the
convenience of the service being delivered at home and it creates a large market opportunity. The category is synonymous with high order values, high gross margins and predictable customer repeat behavior,” said Raghav Bahl, vice president of Bessemer.
StayGlad is an online platform that enables users to get salon and styling services at their doorsteps. StayGlad assists in finding trained and certified beauty service professionals that use standard styling procedures.
StayGlad had an undisclosed amount of angel investment from Tracxn Labs, Delhivery co-founder Sahil Barua and other investors in June.
The startup was founded early this year by IIT Kharagpur alumni Prateek Jain, Shashank Gupta and Kavish Desai. The co-founders have worked in companies such as Adobe, Amazon, Urban Touch, Heinz India and Flipkart.
Chopra says that India’s beauty services industry is growing at about 20 per cent every year.
“Scaling a home salon service requires a completely different DNA and the team led by Prateek has shown a lot of promise. The online and convenience of having these services at home will be a big game changer for the industry and customers,” he added.
StayGlad competes with the likes of GetLook, YLG Salon and Spa, Vyomo, Belita and VanityCube. Belita had raised $375,000 (Rs 2.5 crore) in angel funding through LetsVenture and Lead Angels in August.
GetLook too secure angel funding in August. Bangalore-based beauty and wellnes platform Vyomo is backed by YouWeCan Ventures and TaxiForSure co-founder Aprameya Radhakrishna.

In September, the VC firm putRs 7.9 crore ($1.2 million) in CanvasFlip Solutions Pvt Ltd, a firm that offers a prototyping and testing suite for mobile apps.
1. Swap mayonnaise for mustard
Avoid creamy salads made with mayonnaise that are high in fat and unwanted calories. Instead of mayo mixed through your BBQ favourites, potato salad and oleslaw, use some wholegrain mustard mixed with Greek yoghurt instead.
It will still be creamy and taste great, but will be much lower in fat and calories and will be much better for your health, being a good source of protein, beneficial probiotics and calcium. Don’t forget to make a big green leafy salad with plenty of salad vegetables topped with a healthy dressing of olive oil, lemon, mustard or balsamic vinegar, with some fresh herbs or extra flavour and goodness.
2. Swap sauce for salsa
Tomato and BBQ sauce contains sugar and is high in sodium. In just 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce you are looking at one teaspoon of sugar and 160mg of sodium – and who just stops at 1 tablespoon of sauce. Some healthier toppings for your sausage roll or BBQ steak are mustard, fermented veggies, or homemade pesto, or salsa. You can buy sugar-free or reduced, and sodium-reduced tomato sauces now, which are better choices.
3. Swap butter for lime juice
If you like BBQ corn on the cob you should hold off on the butter, this will add a lot of unwanted fat and calories to your meal. Instead opt for a pinch of sea salt or a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime.
