This year has been taxing for our lovebirds – right from home sheltering and isolating from each other to the obvious delay in weddings. The big fat weddings where family, relatives, and friends joyfully gather, enjoy the food, the celebrations have been put on hold, at least for now.

It is impossible to say for sure when we shall again see the wedding festivities that we are accustomed to. Interestingly, the couples are not defeated by a virus just yet and are making way for a new wave of holy matrimony! Yes, we are talking, of course, about virtual weddings! There has been an upsurge in the number of virtual weddings in the past three months and various wedding planners are now embracing the change by planning such intimate ceremonies. With most people still wary of travel and crowded places even though the lockdown has been eased in many parts of the country, couples are now planning to have virtual weddings right in their home.


Families are revamping their living rooms into �mandaps’, open dining spaces into intimate meals in the dining room and cocktail parties now require an in-house bar setup. This has resulted in an increasing demand for sofas including wing chairs, love seats, swings, and ottoman chairs apart from beds and mattresses.

Khadi is no longer a dull, drab fabric meant only for politicians' wardrobes. A fashion show organised by the Khadi Gramodyog Board as part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to mark the 75th year of India's Independence showcased the use of Khadi in traditional, as well as, contemporary and festive wear.

Pat Gelsinger, CEO - Intel

Intel saw its stock tumbling by more than 8 percent after the chipmaker said the industry-wide component shortage affected its PC chip business during the third quarter (Q3). Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger told CNBC late on Thursday that he didn't expect the semiconductor shortage to end until 2023. "We're in the worst of it now, every quarter, next year we'll get incrementally better, but they're not going to have supply-demand balance until 2023," Gelsinger was quoted as saying.


The company delivered its Q3 results with revenue up 5 percent (year-over-year) driven by strong demand in its DCG and IoTG businesses, despite the highly constrained industry-wide supply environment. "Q3 revenue was $18.1 billion slightly below our guide due to shipping and supply constraints that impacted our businesses," George S. Davis, Chief Financial Officer, said in a statement. He also announced plans to retire from Intel in May 2022. In the third quarter, the company generated $9.9 billion in cash from operations and paid dividends of $1.4 billion.
