Why you need to pay attention to Priyanka Chopra’s shoe wardrobe

Shuffling between heels, boots and heels, Priyanka Chopra’s shoe collection makes a strong case for choosing style over comfort

Sneakers? Pfft. Priyanka Chopra doesn’t believe in them. The actor leans more towards the power of a good pair of heels. And we’re not talking about kitten heels or even wedges—Chopra has an evident penchant for high heels. From daily outings in the city to airport looks and even red carpet appearances, Chopra has devotedly added length to her looks with a heeled pair. Needless to say, leading shoe designers fight for space in her shoe wardrobe—and Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Sergio Rossi and Kalda feature right on top.

Step inside Priyanka Chopra’s shoe wardrobe

Risqué gowns, powerful pantsuits, flirty dresses, sophisticated separates—no matter what ensemble Priyanka Chopra picks, her go-to footwear is always heels. The style, however, almost always tends to differ. Think the ultra-feminine Christian Louboutin pumps that come with a bow; the criss-cross strappy heels by Dsquared2; the Tom Ford platform pumps; the popular style of Jimmy Choo heels; and the barely-there Yeezy heels. Heeled boots are another favourite—whether they are the ChanelPVC boots or Kalda Brown’s leather ones.

When it comes to colours, the sky is the limit—apart from the classic shades of black and white, Chopra has an affinity for vibrant hues like runway-approved neons, yellows, pinks, reds and blues. A current favourite happens to be the clear PVC shoe—there’s the embellished Sergio Rossi one, a pair of Yeezy heels and of course, the Chanel number.

Trailer:

‘Ballad of Dog’s Beach’ is a Portuguese cult-film of the 1980’s, which created big waves for its story, theme, style and political connotations, that still resonate today.
The film is set in the 1960’s, during the dictatorship regime in Portugal. The story opens on an arresting note, when the corpse of a brutally murdered soldier is found on Dog’s Beach. Inspector Elia is assigned the task of uncovering this death, which takes him into a world of love, passion, tension, political intrigues.

The dead soldier turns out to be Major Luis Dantas, a political revolutionary who had been placed in a military prison, but escapes.

He takes refuge in an abandoned house and is joined by two other insurgents. Tensions and complications arise, when the beautiful girl who stays in the neighborhood, discovers them, and begins to start a torrid affair with Dantas. However, she soon finds herself attracting the attention of the other two soldiers too. It is a ménage trois, that is complex and dangerous, and someone has to pay a price for it.
The film created waves in Portugal and overseas. It was also the recipient of many honors and awards.

The JUNE Film of RCB Film Club’s 2019 Movie Series, is part of the National Day celebrations of the Embassy of Portugal in Thailand.

NEW QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY DESIGNATED AS PUBLIC HOLIDAY

The government on Tuesday declared Her Majesty Queen Suthida’s birthday a national holiday.

The new holiday, which falls on June 3, is effectively immediately, an official told the media. Queen Suthida recently married King Vajiralongkorn on May 1.

The government has yet to decide whether the birthday of the previous reigning queen, August 12, will remain a public holiday. As the wife of the late King Bhumibol, former queen Sirikit was reassigned the royal title of Queen Dowager on May 5.

Little is known about Thailand’s new Queen, though media reports say Suthida has been serving in the Ratchawanlop Guards, a unit of bodyguards protecting the then-Crown Prince, since 2013. The palace has not yet released an official biography of Her Majesty.

HM King bestows Bike Un Ai Rak t-shirts

His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn has graciously bestowed t-shirts and drinking water for the benefit of participants in the upcoming Bike Un Ai Rak event. The ceremony was held at the 606 Building of the Royal Household Bureau in Sanam Suea Pa .

Gurpurab 2018: Why Do We Celebrate Gurunanak Jayanti Or Gurpurab?

Guru Nanak Jayanti 2018: Gurpurab is celebrated as the day to remember the holy guru, Guru Nanak

 

Gurpurab or Guru Nanak Jayanti is the celebration of the birth of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak, who laid the foundation of Sikhism. This year, Gurpurab will be celebrated on November 23. Gurpurab or Guru Nanak Jayanti is the most auspicious day in Sikhism and will celebrated with fervour on Friday, even as Gurpurab is celebrated of different days each year based on the Indian lunar calendar. This year would be the 549th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak. “Gurpurab” is made of two words– “Gur”, which means Guru or master, and “Purab”, which means parv in Hindi, meaning day. So Gurpurab is the day dedicated to the Guru.

Festivities on Guru Nanak Jayanti or Gurpurab are centred around the birth anniversaries of the ten Sikh gurus. The tenth and the last Sikh Guru was Guru Gobind Singh. After him, the sacred book of Sikhs, the Adi Granth or Guru Granth Sahib, which contains the writings of the gurus, is considered the guru.

Guru Nanak Gurpurab or Guru Nanak Jayanti is celebrated as the day to remember the holy guru, Guru Nanak, and is a reminder for the followers of Sikhism to remember his teachings and overcome the five vices – lust, greed, attachment, anger and pride and devote one’s life in the selfless service of God.

A look at the life of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak:

 

Guru Nanak was born to Kalayan Das Mehta and Matta Tripat. From an early age, Guru Nanak had a spiritual inkling. He refused to wear the upper-caste Hindu-worn sacred thread as he did not believe in superficial aspects of religion. Guru Nanak said he would rather wear the God’s name in heart that could never be broken or get impure.

Guru Nanak worked as a storekeeper in a granary of Daulat Khan Lodi in Sultanpur, where he came in contact with Mardana, a Muslim servant. Together they organised gatherings for Hindus and Muslims where they sang hymns to praise the creator.

Guru Nanak was married at the age of 18 and bore two sons. But when Guru Nanak turned 28, he disappeared for three days. Upon returning, he said that there is no Hindu or Muslim but only one formless God which could be worshipped by all. Guru Nanak said that a constant remembrance of God, called naamsimran, is the only way to liberation.

These teachings of Guru Nanak stood out against the religious practices of his time and became part of Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs.
