A real estate agent commented in the media recently that young couples who couldn’t afford to buy their first home in Auckland only had themselves to blame. Wow! In one sense, he was right. If you chose the wrong parents, I guess that is true.

    India Shining ;)

    By Upnworld
    I'm glad you included coverage of Kashyap and Siddiqui at Cannes. I hope Siddiqui gets a Cannes award soon but for Kashyap, at the rate he's going amongst these frenchies, he deserves nothing less than the Palme D'Or (for a suitable film , of course). Also, I'd like IW to show me more full-scale pics of all these designer glam outfits showcasing our gals - can't fully imagine by words alone!

    Truth of Krishna

    By Subhankar Zac
    It is hard to believe that the ancients will construct a gargantuan magnificent poem out of nowhere. Mahabharata was a real event occured in north India that killed 4 million people and hopefully the Bhagavad Gita was real as well. But it feels great to know that 5000 year old history lives on as truth under the waves of Arabian sea.
