India: Cafe Paris

111, MG Road
Mumbai, MH 400 023 India
+91 22 2267 1421
Open Hours
This place tries very hard to incorporate small Parisian effect. By day it is known as a family eatery and by night it turns into a Bollywood-fixated joint. The live band constantly croons out the latest Hindi hits and there are posters declaring how Bollywood is the best. The usual dance-bar effect is found here – with mirrors, low tables, flirting waitresses and muscled bouncers. The drinks are reasonably-priced and the place is often booked for private parties.

India: Anamika to join Manish at Paris Fashion Week

New Delhi, April 2 (IANS) The Indian fashion industry is on the upswing. Now, designer and member of the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) Anamika Khanna is all set to join Manish Arora at the Paris Fashion Week (Spring-Summer 2008 collection) in 2007. They would be the first Indian designers to showcase their collections at the event.

Paris is the fashion capital of the world, the trendsetter and a city of unparalleled chic. Also known as the City of Lights, Paris is a patron of the arts and artists.

Clouds may come, but clouds must go, and they all have a silver lining. For behind each cloud you know, the sun, or moon, is shining...

I took this picture in Lebanon, last september, on a cloudy day. I never saw the sky so brisk, energetic, the clouds sliding in such vivid way! Paris' sky always seems motionless, static...
A french guy told me he even thinks it's dull when the sky is blue :) weird, isn't it?

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

FANS of Sacha Baron Cohen are going to love this latest film in which he takes his character TV frontman Borat to the US to report back to Kazakhstan on life in the greatest country in the world.He becomes more than a little distracted by his secondary mission, to locate and marry Pamela Anderson, who plays herself. Not for the faint-hearted, this film includes strong crude and sexual content, including graphic nudity and language. Although likely to be popular with fans, it is not likely to go down well with the authorities of Kazakhstan but Sacha Baron Cohen is not the sort of man to be worried about that.

Madonna ‘very relieved’ to have son at home

Nancy O’Dell has had the opportunity to interview Madonna plenty of times over the past 10 years, but now, for the first time she finds an icon who is positively glowing, and for good reason, the son she has adopted from the African nation of Malawi, 1-year-old David Banda.
“The very first night,” asks Nancy, “what was that like?”
“It was a morning, actually,” remembers Madonna. “He arrived at 7 o’clock in the morning and the children were getting ready for school. We were all in the kitchen, it’s that quiet thing that happens in the morning when no one’s totally awake, the coffee’s brewing. Read More>
