It’s that time of the year when you just want to let loose and have a lot of fun. Not everyone fasts for a religious reason, many people see this as an opportunity to lose weight.

If done the right way, fasting detoxifies the body, satvik food keeps the mind and soul pure. If you choose to fast during festivities, do it the healthy way.

Believe it or not, the most powerful weapon against any contagious disease is summed up in a three-word phrase you would have heard a million times from your mother: Wash Your Hands.

That’s great advice but what should we wash our hands with? Is the good old soap enough and are hand sanitizers really effective?

The ‘Durga Pujo Bong’ is a bundle of joy and a suitcase full of Gelusil tablets (how else do you battle five days of pet pujo [tummy worship, or incessantly eating out], pray?) But what of the ‘Other’ kind of Bong? The one that does not care a fig for the crowds, the frequent lavatory visits, and the need to dance the dhunuchi dance with aunties? What do you do if you’re the ‘other’ kind of Bong – the one that haaaaates Durga Pujo?

No one goes in there. No one has sought to investigate whether the neglected house will ever be inhabited again. Or will the house inexorably be sold for redevelopment?

Accent Be Damned, Priyanka Chopra Kicks Yankee Butt in Quantico!

It’s Sunday. Relax, exhale and sample some of The Quint’s finest stories from the week gone by.

Why this national obsession with Priyanka Chopra’s accent? Newspapers and news sites have ripped into her with delicious fervour, calling it everything from ‘inconsistent’ to a ‘Sonia-meets-Salman’ hybrid. The poor accent could well have cowered and shrunk at all this unwanted attention – even got more pronounced. But it did neither.

Truth is, while much of PeeCee’s accent is staged (she’s doing her best to sound like the half-Caucasian, half-Indian character that she plays), half of it is actually very, very real.
