Half the battle is won when you are wearing the right footwear with your outfit in sync with the occasion. Experts suggest that a black suit should always be matched with black shoes but a grey suit can be paired with either black or brown.

Kuldeep Singh, Managing Director, San Frissco, and Saggar Mehra, Creative Director at Sunil Mehra, have listed a guide to decoding shoes matching with the occasion:


* Corporate shoes: Lace-up dress shoes would be perfect for making an impression in client meetings and office conferences. A black suit should always be matched with black shoes. A grey suit can be paired with either black or brown, likewise with navy blue and light blue suits.

* Friday formals: Fridays are mostly relaxed and so should be the shoes. Well, relaxed is fine but it should still be in line with official decorum, hence leather loafers are a great way to celebrate the much anticipated weekend. And if one wishes to experiment, one can opt for something textured and groovy too to suit their personal style.

* Sunday vibe: Whether one is going on a movie date or fetching groceries for the coming week, comfort is what one aims for. Going for sturdy, reliable and comfortable sneakers can never go wrong with comfortable denims and tees or even a well fitted shirt that’s mostly how one dresses on a Sunday.

* Evening shoes: Evening shoes serve different purposes. They should be versatile in design so that one can switch from being on a dinner to going to a party. Shoes like brogues and suede loafers are fit for almost all your evening commitments. They are trendy, comfortable and stylish.

Formal lace up shoes and even loafers go well with suits and bandhgalas. (Bollywood Country)

The Centre will launch a pilot project on the use of indigenously manufactured drones for delivering medicines in the undulating landscape of Jammu and surrounding areas from Saturday

The Centre will launch a pilot project on the use of indigenously manufactured drones for delivering medicines in the undulating landscape of Jammu and surrounding areas from Saturday with a focus on vaccines delivery initially. "This is going to be a pilot project for the area. The drone is developed and manufactured entirely by our scientists," Union Minister for Science & Technology, Dr Jitendra Singh told mediapersons. Singh said he himself will be launching the project at Jammu.

The drone is developed by the scientists at Bengaluru's National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), a constituent of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), an autonomous Society that is headed by the Prime Minister. For now, the delivery would be limited to Covid vaccines and once successful, it would be expanded to be used for regular delivery of medicines in the remote, hilly areas.

According to him Amitabh Bachchan is a great actor in the industry.

Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan shares how he feels when people compare him with his father Amitabh Bachchan on the singing reality show 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa'. He also requests contestant Rajshree Bag to sing a track 'Bahon Mein Chale Aao' featuring his mother Jaya Bachchan.

Abhishek said after looking at the performance of Rajshree, who is often compared with Lata Mangeshkar on the show, that she reminds him of being compared with his father. "Rajshree, whenever I have got the chance to watch the show, I've seen people compare you to Lata didi. It actually reminded me about how people compare me with my father and ask me how I feel about it."

According to him Amitabh Bachchan is a great actor in the industry and this is what he says to everyone making these comparisons. "My answer to them is that there's no greater actor in this film industry than Amitabh Bachchan and if I'm being compared to him, I am sure I must have done something good."

"Similarly, your voice has a different kind of magic like Lata ji and that's why people are comparing your voice with her. I feel you should always take this as a compliment," he concluded. 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' airs on Saturday and Sunday on Zee TV. (IANS/ MBI)

Winters in India have always beckoned for that hot, steaming bowl of tomato and pepper rasam or the mellow, millet based Raab. Certain dishes like sarson ka saag, undhiyu, nimona pulao are winter specialites in the country. Seasonal food has always been an Indian speciality -- we switch our choice in fruits, vegetables, sometimes even grains with the onset of different season. The preference of using specific ingredients during certain climates is visible in our sweets as well. It's common to find local and traditional delicacies made of jaggery, instead of sugar during the winters. Case in point -- the Nolen Gur Rasgulla, a speciality made in Odisha and West Bengal between November to February.
