LINEN OVER DENIM

I prefer pure linen to denim any day which brings to mind the great linen range of suits, trousers, shirts and jackets that Shahab Durazi has come out with as part of his summer wear collection.

Linen needs to be well cared for otherwise the creases tend to make the fabric look loose.

A few creases make the linen outfit look naturally wavy which is hip.

Yeah. Ask me!!!

After linen, my preferred fabric is raw cotton silk. Pashmina or Cashmere for debonair winter wear is great.

In Mumbai, KONKAN CAFE in the Taj Vivanta and MASALA KRAFT in the Taj Mahal are the best for authentic Indian food. In New Delhi, Bukahra is simply too good. But, the experts in non-vegetarian foods tell me that Malvan cuisine is way ahead of Punjabi food or North West Frontier cuisine. I am vegetarian and so where taste of non-veg food is concerned, I am clueless which is the better Indian cuisine. However, when it comes to the tantalizing food aromas, then, well, by just taking in the fantastic aromas I can certainly back the claim that Malvan food scores over the Punjabi and NWFP cuisines.

The lush SULA VINEYARD located 4 hours away from Mumbai is owned by an alum of Mumbai's elite Cathedral School. The estate is simply beautiful and employs some of the best professionals in the wine business from around the world on a consultancy basis. We enjoyed the tour of the winery.

ILLITERATE INDIAN WINE BIBBERS

Few Indians sip wine (though the trend is catching on in the metros) and most of those who imbibe wines wouldn't know the difference between a cabernet and a suvignon, a dry wine and a non-dry wine and a sparkling wine and a fortified wine and they'd be hard-pressed to know which wine glasses should be used to serve the different types of wines. Most wouldn't know that a wine waiter is called a vin sommelier.

COGNAC

Even where brandy is concerned, trendy Indians who drink Cognac at home mispronounce the word COGNAC and most of them pronounce it as COG-NACK much to our amusement when the correct pronunciation is CONYACK.

These tacky Indians make an ass of themselves even when they travel first class and I have overheard a few of them on first class flights ask the air hostesses if COG-NACK is available.

Besides, they don't even know that brandy is drunk from a SNIFTER.

LMFAO.

When I was in America saw a few times a tv transmission called Man VS Food. Are you a fan of it?
Not a regular viewer but have seen the show.

The guy accepts food challenges and the ones I saw he won.

He can eat an incredible amount of food. Perhaps mind over matter.

Check this out - guess he had enough:

Retirement[edit]

On January 27, 2012 Richman announced his retirement from food challenges.[23] No exact reason was given as to why Richman retired, other than moving on and wishing his audience farewell. Explaining the show's re-tooling to become Man V. Food Nation, Scripps Networks chairman Ken Lowe cited concerns over ensuring Adam Richman's health if the show had continued in its previous format.[24]

I am or rather was till a few years ago very competitive in an academic sense and topped my class in school and later at the IIT but then things fell apart with the death of both my parents and then all the mess I landed into due to a certain person.
My parents were very wealthy and the money is very well invested.
Yeah, I work in the sense that I frequently oversee/discuss the health of the investments with my CAs and other financial advisers.
It sounds as though you are overwhelmed with life itself.

Having money should not be a burden but a blessing, don't you agree?

Michael Bloomberg is worth over $30 billion and has several business and still
managed to be an effective mayor of New York City for 12 years. And is very active
in the gun control arena.

Bill Gates is worth more than double that amount and still serves on boards and is active in his foundation, busy giving his money away.

So you never put any of your education to use?

If your money is well and properly invested, it should be on "autopilot" with only minor rebalancing perhaps quarterly at the most. As long as it's throwing off sufficient income for you to live on.

What's a CA? Here we have CPAs and financial advisors and of course attorneys.

Coarse food? Unrefined flour, using natural foods free of preservatives, grinding the ingredients on a rough stone instead of in a food blender, cooking over firewood instead of gas/electric source and so on...
We enjoyed the rustic lifestyle for 1 night.
Have you ever camped out? Backpacked, hiked? Overnight canoe trip?

Very enjoyable. Did some camping with my family as a kid.

But mostly with the Boy Scouts. One of the best things I ever did. Several years.
From maybe 11 years old to around 15 or so. And then returned again at 16 or 17.

Good challenges.

I am not overwhelmed by materialism since I have seen much of the very best that material life has to offer since birth and so I am not attached to money/luxuries but more than this reason the real cause is that I am detached by nature from crass materialism, since, from age 4, I have been getting spiritual visions while in the waking consciousness and the mystico-rational side of life attracts me the most but if I tell you some of my horrific mystical experiences in the waking consciousness of recent times you'll be shocked despite you being an atheist.

Former---The NEWS says they are STILL "gathering information" on whether this is HATE crime.
Frijoles---Yep, the guy HATED Jews, but managed to kill 2 Christians (and 1 Jew).
HughBe---- Clearly based on your words and that of Former you have GATHERED more information than the police. Share the information with them and with us.
Also, the person killed 2 Christians and 1 Jew and based on that in your mind he HATES Jews but has NO hate for Christians?
Was the Jew a Christian and if yes that would make it 3 Christians.
Was the Jew a Buddhist or a secular person?
If the Jew was secular then based on your argument the person killed the Jew because of his RACE and not religious affiliation to Judaism or otherwise.
Finally, share your typically intelligent reason for NOT ascribing hate to the person for killing the 2 Christians. Were the Christians white, brown, black or what?

Aw shucks, Uncle Former.
I usually play up that taunt when I want to tease you or when I wish to get under your skin.
I am the least concerned with your socioeconomic status.
Beneath all the South Mumbai snobbery of the Cathedral School and Malabar Hill or Altamount Road kind, I am a person who looks more at the heart than at the head.
I'll be pleased to play host to you.
And are you of a generous, giving nature, my friend?

Being of limited socioeconomic status, I may require a modest travel stipend upon my arrival in your country. And of course the longer I stay, the more of these I will require.

Though in return, I will be very good company and may even stop in occasionally and say hello to you.

Will you assist in this regard? You seem like a good and magnanimous fellow. And clearly a man of some means.

I am but a poor middleman, trader of run-down properties, shacks and the like.

What do you say?

.
I would have continued with the PhD at an elite US university after the integrated master's degree in a scientific discipline at IIT but my yoga put a stop to that idea and the rest is known....

On the other hand, the yogic experiences have revealed to me a profounder world of reality by direct contact with these subtle objects/events and their causal links with matter and so I am not fascinated by science as much as say a person who lives at all times in the ordinary consciousness.

I am deeply thrilled only when I discuss mystical experiences and in ordinary subjects I get a kick from higher Math.

That's where you are wrong.

When huge sums of money and pricey assets are concerned, one has to have his finger on the pulse of the markets otherwise the money will stagnate or will yield lower dividends or will run into losses.

Having huge sums invested in leading blue chip companies, dealing with luxury properties and playing an active role as an investor in the precious metal trade is not easy - I say it is difficult as one has to know the ins and outs of the markets and keep up with the latest market trends and keep watching the company results and know when to buy, when to stay put, when to sell, when to diversify and so on.

The final decision rests with me and not with my financial advisers.

I have not just inherited a huge inheritance from my late parents and have sat on it like an inert machine but have made some pretty smart moves over the years that have increased the assets...

CA = Chartered Account.

To become a CA in India, one needs to pass a 3-tiered exam that's high on Commercial Math and intricate accountancy skills.

Of the hundreds of thousands of candidates who take the CA exams each year, just around 1 % or so are declared successful.
