Power of touch

Inspiration can come in any form and from any source. Renowned fashion designer Ritu Beri recently showcased a line that drew from the new range of the touch-enabled Photosmart printers of Hewlett-Packard India.

The new ensemble resonated with chic and elegance. Looking every inch the style diva herself, in a short black knitted dress and boots, the designer said, “I have the HP printer in my office. I like to see my son's pictures instantly, which the printer allows.”

These stylishly designed printers allow printing wirelessly, wherever you want, and can connect to the internet without the need of a computer.

The website will provide health tips from around the world,” said Vandana Luthra, founder, VLCC. Also present on the occasion was legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, who said that people marred by a sedentary lifestyle and lack of awareness are its victims. He emphasised the role of sports in this arena.
