The Hindu Metroplus Life Style Show has something for everyone

MADURAI: The diversity of products at The Hindu Metroplus Lifestyle Show has spiced up the city, catching the imagination of people.

The show has something for everyone and caters to the needs of a cross section of society.

From African glass-topped furniture to innovatively designed bathtubs, name a product and you can spot it here.

The cynosure of all eyes is the range of the latest Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) plasma television sets and hi-tech DVD players from Samsung stall.

These ultra sleek televisions, which are slimmer than a pack of cards, are viewed with envy as they occupy trifling space and offer high definition crystal clear digital images.

No wonder the Samsung pavilion, which also showcases other products like refrigerators, compels the visitors' attention.

There is fusion of tradition and technology at the RmKV pavilion where one gets an insight into the skills involved in producing top quality silk sarees. The saree with over 1.35 lakh colours is an example of how a talented weaver can give shape to his imagination using a computer.

Literary feast

For the literary buffs, like the Madurai Collector, T. Udhayachandran, who spent quite some time chatting about writers informally while browsing through the titles available at `Kizakku Pathippagam' on Saturday, there is a veritable feast.

There is a wide variety to choose from at this stall -- from Hamas to Edison - all in Tamil. For the technology savvy, New Horizon Media offers books in compact discs (CD) for children to the aged.

`Food Court'

After a tired day of shopping, for those wanting to gorge themselves, the `Food Court' organised by Sri Kaliswari College is just the right place.

Offering a variety of cuisine, the food court has something for everyone.
