The pleasure's all yours

Grand Marnier—the cognac-based liqueur from France—has given birth to some of the world’s most potent cocktails. We asked the brand ambassador in Asia, Gulliaume Jubien, to whip up exotic cocktails for six different moods.
  • The bullet from Bangalore A chemistry student who started in advertising and then moved to IT, Sandeep Menon prefers to take the road less travelled, both at work and play.
  • A life worth reading The story of Lt. General Inderjit Singh Gill is one worth recounting. And veteran journalist S. Muthiah does it well.
  • Late night bites Late night is when a city truly shows its colours. When you’ve done a bar or three, and it’s past midnight and you really, really need a meal, what are your options?
  • A legend passes Paul Newman succumbed to cancer recently at the age of 83. We remember the man and his movies.
  • Buy buy time From watches to limited edition ‘Ganesha’ pens, there’s plenty out there to check out this fortnight.
  • Mind your tees & Qs The Augusta National Golf Club has a zero tolerance policy towards mobile phones during the Masters. Being caught with one means instant eviction and blacklisting for life. You would wish more places would adopt such a stringent line of action.
  • Kit bag We track the best and most stylish equipment you can buy to start racking up those miles.
  • Marathon mania Expected to be the biggest in the country with over 30,000 participants. we tell you why you should join up, and what it takes to go the distance.
  • Three weeks to a better life It’s hard to start. When you haven’t done a scrap of exercise for ages, the biggest battle you face isn’t on the treadmill, it’s in your head.
  • Get up and get active! When it comes to exercise, only one question matters —what kind of man do you want to be?
  • Mix it up Solidcoloured shirts and ties? liven up your wardrobe with patterns and take a walk through the nation’s capital.
  • Ooh La lamian! What does it take to make a noodle? We ask Chef Wu Zhang Qiu, a noodle master from China, to give us a demonstration.
  • The new seduction With its three-mode drive select system, getting behind the wheels of the Audi A4 3.2 Quattro will give you an adrenaline rush like no other. Blaze the roads in this beauty and fall in love all over again.
  • Chalk and cheese At the end of the day, they’re not ‘just phones’.
  • A walk in the clouds Avoid the tourist trail in Mussoorie and this land of rain, mist and stunning peaks continues to exert its magic.
  • The wedding planner Want to make your wedding an event, that’s truly an affair to remember? Preston Bailey, Hollywood’s favourite wedding designer, tells you how.
  • Butch Cassidy’s legacy Benefactors like Paul Newman are becoming an extinct species in our narcissistic world. Do you recall any of our actors having a charitable bone?
