New Delhi, Dec 29: Ditch basic colours like black, red and blue for your wardrobe, and try ultra-violet. Invest in a bomber leather jacket in ultra-violet or team a woven detailed leather duffle bag with your formal suits, suggest experts.

Akshay Narvekar, Founder at Bombay Shirt Company, Tabby Bhatia, Director at Voganow.com and Ishaan Sachdeva, Director at Alberto Torresi, have listed the latest fashion ideas for men:


* Classic combination of white and ultra-violet works best in gingham checks or pinstripes when it comes to formal office wear. These shirts are apt for formal meetings and give a sharp yet sophisticated look.

* A two-toned, matte finished shirt in vivid purple is another wise option to opt for a casual evening look or night parties with family or friends. The dobby weave texture gives a rich look to one’s appearance; further highlighting the detailed cuff, placket and collar.

* A bomber leather jacket in ultra-violet teamed with a white t-shirt and black denim can enhance a sharp yet robust look during a night bonfire gathering with friends.

* To suit the corporate look for those who travel a lot for work, a woven detailed leather duffle bag in ultra-violet with hand finishing detailing is a must-have for rendering a dynamic airport look. Be it a formal suit or casual denim and crisp shirts, duffle bags look best with both outfits.

* Funky high-top sneakers in ultra-violet can give a phenomenal street style look when teamed with a muted shade zipper and light blue denim.

* Boat style shoes or loafers in suede leather in vivid purple tone are the best option for those going for a casual day out, movie or lunch date. Loafers when paired with chinos in pastel shades and crisp linen shirt or t-shirts give one a brilliant style statement on weekends. IANS

Bullying may occur anywhere, at any time, in person or online (cyberbullying), and can take many forms, including verbal, physical, and social.

What Is Bullying?

Bullying is a pattern of recurrent aggressive behavior in which one person (or a group of individuals) in a position of authority intentionally intimidate or abuse another individual to cause bodily or emotional harm to that other. Bullying may take place in either a physical or verbal manner. Bullied individuals, as well as those who bully others, may have long-term repercussions.

Bullying may occur anywhere, at any time, in person or online (cyberbullying), and can take many forms, including verbal, physical, and social. Bullies utilize their position of power — such as physical strength, knowledge of something embarrassing, or popularity — to exert control over or damage other people. Many people assume that bullying occurs solely during childhood; nevertheless, bullying does not necessarily stop after a person reaches the age of adulthood.

Copper earrings

Silver and gold have always been preferred when it comes to wearing jewellery. Right from the times of monarchy in India, wealth and riches have been associated with wearing gold and silver for the various properties they have. Copper is a metal that has always been worn by the poor. It is not a metal that carries a significant association with health or wealth, but wearing at least one article of copper is extremely beneficial for health.

Copper is a reddish-brown metal that cannot be worn on its own. It has to be worn in the form of an alloy to prevent a reaction. Copper oxidizes in air and forms a green layer on it when exposed, much like the Statue of Liberty. Usually, bangles, chains, or rings of copper always have brass and traces of silver in them which helps with stabilizing its reactivity.

Traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market.

By Md Waquar Haider

When popular smartphone brands like Xiaomi and realme entered the laptop market in India last year, they were expected to shake the existing giants, specifically under the Rs 50,000 category. However, chip shortage and supply crunch have somewhat dented their plans to make a significant mark to date. According to industry experts, the issue with smartphone makers entering the laptop category is two-fold. The first one is a massive supply crunch in the laptop component market and only big brands are able to get volume and supplies.

The other factor is that the traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market. Top 3 players control more than 70 per cent of the market and strong portfolio, distribution, and channel reach as well as brand marketing has helped them massively. "New brands can surely make a dent in the consumer laptop market but are challenged by supply issues right now. Watch out for them in 2022 as and when supply situation eases up," Navkendar Singh, Research Director, Client Devices & IPDS, IDC India told IANS.

Dominated by HP Inc, Lenovo and Dell, the traditional PC market (inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations) in India continued to be robust as the shipments grew by 50.5 per cent year-over-year (YoY) in the second quarter (Q2), according to IDC. Notebook PCs continue to hold more than three-fourth share in the overall category and grew 49.9 per cent YoY in 2Q21, reporting a fourth consecutive quarter with over 2 million units. Desktops also indicated a recovery as shipments grew 52.3 per cent YoY after recording the lowest shipments of the decade in 2Q20.

According to Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR, driven by the pandemic and the associated accelerated pivot to remote work, learn and unwind culture, PCs have been witnessing heightened demand. "Despite the current supply chain constraints, PCs are here to stay in the new never normal. In the run-up to the festive season, established PC market leaders will continue to leverage their brand salience and gain market share," Ram told IANS.
