NATO’s aging eye in the sky to get a last overhaul “We had to deal with a lot of adversities in this game and we really needed to get a win, especially after coming off a loss,” added the multi-titled coach, who didn’t mind playing his remaining players extended minutes with an 18-day break coming their way.Garvo Lanete fired 14 points in the third period and finished with 27, effectively plugging the holes created by the absence of Baser Amer and Mike Tolomia as the Bolts completed a rally from as big as 15 points down to rise to 5-1.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingAmer, a prime candidate for the Most Improved Player of the year award who has stepped up to become the team’s best point guard, and Tolomia, whom Black described as his second best point guard, are both in Kuala Lumpur playing for Gilas Pilipinas in the Southeast Asian Games.Aside from his two guards, Black also missed his best defender in Cliff Hodge, which meant that the Bolts were “not strong defensively,” allowing Phoenix to nearly get away with a victory.

Streetsmart look of Dil Chahta Hai heroes sets the trend for Indian urban males

first_imgIf one had to pick out a single symbol that reflects the changes in the Indian urban male’s style book, it would be the refreshing, streetsmart look of the heroes of Dil Chahta Hai.Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Saif Ali Khan have set a trend that has found clones in,If one had to pick out a single symbol that reflects the changes in the Indian urban male’s style book, it would be the refreshing, streetsmart look of the heroes of Dil Chahta Hai.Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Saif Ali Khan have set a trend that has found clones in college canteens, nightclubs, movie halls, even in boardrooms.Here are the basics of the DCH look: a spiffy, sharp haircut, like that of one of the heroes in the movie; short-shirts with slits in the sides, in orange, purple, bright blue or green; loose-fitting trousers or bright pyjamas; and sandals.Literally on the cutting edge of men’s style today are the trio’s trendy, close-cropped haircuts, courtesy Juice, the hair salon run by Adhuna Bhabani, who is married to DCH director Farhan Akhtar. “The response has been overwhelming,” she says. “Fifty per cent of the men who walk in demand the DCH look.”Man in The Mirror: Vishesh Bhatt and Shubham Agarwal getting the DCH cut at Nalini and Yasmin’s, MumbaiThe most prominent, inexpensive and easy way to look in vogue is growing the soul patch or zap that Aamir sports on his chin. And all that it takes is a new shaving routine. Gaurav Gupta, a 24-year-old Mumbai doctor, dons one and calls it “mosquito”.The new look is even finding its way to advertisements, such as the Onida Black ad, which features actor Rajat Kapoor (who incidentally acted in the movie) with an Aamir-style zap.The sartorial style that the DCH trio represents is markedly androgynous. A change largely envisaged by New York-based designer Arjun Bhasin, who experimented with bright, feminine colours like lilac and yellow, and designer Aki Narula, who relished the creative freedom to dress the heroes in two-toned shirts and sheer shirts as outer swimwear.advertisementFashion stylist Yogendra Tripathi cautions that the upbeat DCH look may just be a passing fad, but the way men look now, it seems it will stick around for a while yet.last_img read more
