Glitter forever

Time is money. But at times, time is also diamond, gold and silver.

A visit to the JCK show at Pragati Maidan showed us why. The place glittered as leading jewellers from across the country showcased their collections. One among them was Forever Jewellery, which exhibited its collection of necklaces, earrings, finger rings for men and women , bangles, bracelets and nose pins.

It was the second year of the exhibition and yet the place was not too crowded? Reason being the sky rocketing prices of most of the jewellery pieces on display.

While the prices of the rings started from Rs. 6, 000 onwards, a necklace cost Rs.25 lakh onwards.

Get together

The AASRA (An Association for Scientific Research on Addiction) Parivar, which organised the ‘3rd Dr H S Seith Memorial Lecture’ at the India Habitat Centre had no clue that the show will be hijacked by former Columbian students.

The common thing in the gathering that included engineers, managers, students, social workers and people from political background was St.Columba school. It seemed for them it was just a get together where they could get nostalgic about their school. Most among them were relishing about the morals and ethics that school imbibed in them.

Being a Columba’s alumnus himself, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, lawyer and Member of Parliament, who was to present memorial speech on ‘Drug Abuse by Children’ also joined the band wagon by beginning his speech by remembering his school.

Talent on show

International Film & Television Club, an offshoot of the Asian Academy of Film and Television, Noida recently organised a festival of short films produced by the media students of the Academy. Some of the important themes that were on show included drug addiction, plight of street children, female foeticide and anti-Sikh riots.
