This cafe by day and restaurant by night is the brainchild of husband-wife duo Anuj and Binni Mahajan.It is not only a new concept the duo is experimenting with but also with some new dishes which Binni, a trousseau designer by profession, ensures the customers are informed about. Binni not only prepares the dishes her self in the morning but also interacts with the customers to take down their requests.My inspiration for this is my father Harjinder Singh Talwar. He was into dairy business and all my creativity and hard work comes from him. There is an even spread for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The mango salad can be enjoyed with or without chicken, followed up by the voul-au-ventspop-inthe-mouth pastry puffs with a mushroom or chicken filling, an excellent accompaniment with your coffee.The duo vouches for the authenticity of their Mughlai cuisine. Sheermal, khumari and roomali roti are served with mouth-watering kebabs and curriessuch as the chicken shammi kebab, the mutton shammi kebab and dal makhani. All meat is minced in-house and the kebabs are freshly prepared, informs Anuj. The traditional dishes like chicken changezi and nihari are a must have for robust, hearty meal.advertisementBy Amrita Dhaliwal2) Be fit to danceLearn from the best trainers from the World Bhangra council and Club Salsa International.Come dance, burn some calories and get a chance to participate in some of the world’s best dance shows at the newest dance studio opening its doors to the city’s talent in Sector 32-D, Chandigarh Fit Dance Studio.

The idea for the exhibition came from the Chair of the Museum, Kishwar Desai as she researched for her book, Jallianwala Bagh, 1919Before and After, which is to be published soon. The exhibition uses first-hand testimonies of those people who were in Jallianwala-Bagh on that fateful day as well as those thousands who were subjected to rigorous imprisonment, tortured and humiliated under the subsequent Martial Law orders, to narrate the history.The exhibition aims to situate the Jallianwala Bagh massacre within the broader context of what was happening across Punjab and India and to bring to the fore many of the lesser known aspects of the protests against the Rowlatt Bills, such as the strong Hindu-Muslim unity of Gandhi’s Satyagraha, which greatly discomfited the British.The exhibition will be travelling across India and the UK to mark the Centenary Commemoration of the tragic events of 1919. After showcasing at Amritsar, the event will travel to London, Birmingham and Manchester.
