Sep 02, 2017: Men are showing greater interest in their appearance and retailers have also shifted their attention towards menswear, says Sanjay Ghura who has come up with a new menswear label in the capital.

“One can find a huge gap between the trends and growth of menswear due to increasing competition in the retail apparel market. The gaps are due to a different lifestyle and the shifts that are taking place on a regular basis. But thanks to the accessibility of fast fashion rates who are driving men’s interest in the adoption of such trends,” Ghura of brand TZAR told IANS.


“Men are showing greater interest in their appearance and retailers have also shifted their attention towards menswear. Wider cultural and lifestyle trends surrounding heightened male interest in fashion and personal style have led to an increased willingness amongst men to spend on their appearance. Within the fashion market, there has been a gradual growth in interest in male fashion,

“I personally think it is a super exciting time. Guys are really well bred, well-versed, have an interest in fashion. I think there are a lot of great influences right now,” he added.

Ghura launched his brand TZAR on Friday night. The USP of the brand is to express yourselves the best to the world at the work place and let everyone know what mood you’re in, whether happy, trendy or confident.

Talking about the evolution of menswear, he said that “the last five years or so have been some of the most revolutionary for men’s fashion.”

“Since the late 2000s, global conversations revolving around men’s’interest in clothing have mounted in popularity, leading industry professionals to address a fledgling but highly influential market that had been long overshadowed or straight up ignored in previous years,” he said.

“The ‘don’t care’ attitude men have to fashion is becoming a thing of the past. Menswear has come a long way and we still continue to explore the foundations of personal style for menswear. And there has been a huge shift in menswear.

“Formals have been adopted by mainstream designers and subverted by subcultures. Clothing has become more form-fitting and casual nowadays. Looking at this scenario, our’s is a formal approach,” he added. (IANS)

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.

Cubbon Park is a lush green garden at the heart of Bangalore

At the heart of Bangalore city, a large 300-acre space of lush greenery and heritage stands as a symbol of the city's past, present, and future. Cubbon Park is every child's favourite park, every Bangalorean's haven of fresh air, and altogether, the city's pride.

It stands testament to the past, in terms of the diversity of flora it houses. Bangalore traffic in the recent past has grown into a menace, but the stretch between MG Road and Cubbon Park is always a pleasurable place to stop and wait for the signal to turn green. The gust of wind that blows here, and the smell of mud, coupled with floral scents instantly transports citizens to Old Bangalore, where the weather was fine, and the trees loomed over roads with thick canopies that did not even allow rainwater to penetrate. Cubbon Park is also a historical site, and one of the few remaining monuments of colonial heritage in Central Bangalore. It houses many statues and among them, the most famous is that of Queen Victoria, which faces the St. Mark's Square.
