When a friend asked me out for dinner I was up for some staid, run off the mill restaurant in one of the flashy malls dotted in the millennium city of Gurgaon, but I was pleasantly surprised as the evening unfolded. Tucked in between various cafes at the Cross Point Mall in DLF Phase 4, Gurgaon, I discovered Italy. The Pasta Bowl Company, with its live kitchen and livelier ambiance, it was a treat for the eye as well as the tongue.
With a bid to introduce theatre in our midst Kingdom of Dreams came up with Zangoora and got a magnificent musical. After Zangoora and Jhumroo, now they are again introducing a new show for the children of the millennium city.
Gurgaon is in the grips of Ice bucket challenge, which has taken the whole world in a storm. While many term it as silly, to dunk a bucket full of ice cold water anywhere and everyone is a feat, which is being done across the globe to support Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS. The disease, hardly heard of in India, is very prevalent across globe and in order to support it, the ice bucket was initiated by the founder organisation ALS Association. Since July 29 till date they have received 4 million dollars worth of donation for the disease.
While most of us have just changed our Facebook or Whatsapp profile picture to honour Independence Day, there is a passionate bikers group in Gurgaon called BRC Gurgaon, who feels that just a change of picture is not enough. While they have nothing against people with the Indian flag as their profile picture, for these bunch of ragtag bikers, the rush of the air and adrenaline is more important. Keeping this is mind, the group would ride across Gurgaon with a tricolour Indian flag on August 15 from 7:30 am.
