Bhushan Kumar releases T-Series artist Neeti Mohan’s new single Kithe Reh Gaya celebrating love

It’s been a year of high profile weddings and the wedding season ain’t over yet. Coming close on the heels is singer and T-Series artist Neeti Mohan’s new single titled Kithe Reh Gaya, which released today.

Though Kithe Reh Gaya is a video about an engagement ceremony, it packs in all the energy, vibe and vibrant colours of a traditional Indian wedding with extended family joining in the merry-making and the celebration. And why not?  Kithe Reh Gaya is about a ring ceremony waiting to happen in the luxurious Neemrana Hotel in Patiala. Hmm… but what is a love story without a few hiccups?

In Kithe Reh Gaya, the dashing groom accompanied by his friend is on the way to the engagement venue.  On reaching the venue, they realize that instead of reaching Neemrana Hotel in Patiala, they have reached Neemrana Hotel in Jaipur.

At the other end, the ebullient girl, played by Neeti is waiting for her to-be fiancé and is visibly  worried that it’s time to exchange rings but the man of the moment has still not arrived.  The video records the journey of the groom who surmounts various difficulties to reach his to-be bride. Some of it makes for quirky viewing.

Neeti Mohan breaks away from the tradition of a coy bride, lends a zestful quality to the vocal rendition of Kithe Reh Gaya and effuses it with an irreverent spirit, characteristic of a modern day woman.  She says, “Kithe Reh Gaya, my brand new single is full of new beginnings... it's a song for every girl who's in love. It’s a song of celebration with the family. I believe Kithe Reh Gaya is the song for every bride and bridesmaid. Super excited to showcase the video shot in Patiala to everyone.” Neeti shares some additional trivia. She points out, “The interesting thing is that we shot this song when it was six degrees in Patiala where I had to be in a lehenga-choli. That was coolness to the next level.”

Producer Bhushan Kumar adds, “Kithe Reh Gaya is a very refreshing dance number and will make you take a liking to it instantly. The beat is catchy and has been sung beautifully by Neeti. I am sure it will be one song that will make a mark among the non-film category.”

The music of the video is composed by Abhijit Vaghani, with lyrics by Kumaar and the video has been directed by Robby Singh.

The JOY of Art and Automobile BMW Group brings New Car

The JOY of Art and Automobile: BMW Group brings the14th BMW Art Car to India.

 #14 BMW Art Car David Hockney - 1995 BMW 850 CSi on exclusive display at India Art Fair.

 New Delhi. BMW Group India has presented the 14th BMW Art Car created by most renowned British artist David Hockney for the first time in India. His creation will be exclusively exhibited from 31 January - 3 February 2019 at the India Art Fair in New Delhi. David Hockney created the 14th Art Car for BMW in 1995 with the BMW 850 CSi.

BMW Art Cars or the ‘Rolling Sculptures’ are original masterpieces of art that demonstrate an individual synthesis of artistic expression and automobile design. Since 1975, 19 international artists have created Art Cars based on contemporary BMW automobiles of their times, all offering a wide range of artistic interpretations.

BMW Art Car Collection
For over 40 years, BMW Art Car Collection has fascinated art and design enthusiasts as well as lovers of cars and technology with its unique combination of fine art and innovative automobile technology. Several cars from BMW Art Car Collection are usually on display at the BMW Museum in Munich, the home of BMW Art Cars, as part of its permanent collection. The remaining BMW Art Cars travel the globe – to art fairs as well as exhibitions.

The BMW Art Car collection was born when French race car driver and art aficionado Hervé Poulain, together with Jochen Neerpasch, then BMW Motorsport Director, asked his artist friend Alexander Calder to design an automobile. The result was a BMW 3.0 CSL, which competed in 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1975, where it quickly became the crowd’s favourite. Since then, 19 international artists have designed BMW models, among them some of the most renowned artists of our time: Alexander Calder (BMW 3.0 CSL, 1975), Frank Stella (BMW 3.0 CSL, 1976), Roy Lichtenstein (BMW 320 Group 5, 1977), Andy Warhol (BMW M1 Group 4, 1979), Ernst Fuchs (BMW 635CSi, 1982), Robert Rauschenberg (BMW 635CSi, 1986), Michael Jagamara Nelson (BMW M3 Group A, 1989), Ken Done (BMW M3 Group A, 1989), Matazo Kayama (BMW 535i, 1990), César Manrique (BMW 730i, 1990), A. R. Penck (BMW Z1, 1991), Esther Mahlangu (BMW 525i, 1991), Sandro Chia (BMW M3 GTR, 1992), David Hockney (BMW 85  0CSi, 1995), Jenny Holzer (BMW V12 LMR, 1999), Ólafur Eliasson (BMW H2R, 2007), Jeff Koons (BMW M3 GT2, 2010), John Baldessari (BMW M6 GT3) and Cai Fei (BMW M6 GT3). 
The BMW Art Car Collection is by no means complete as it stands. The number of exhibits will continue to grow, adding artistic expressions to the collection.

#14 BMW Art Car David Hockney 1995 BMW 850 CSi
David Hockney’s art car tells a story. The imagery, flat and Matisse-like, narrates the emotional connection and singular bond between the driver and the vehicle. Hockney offers us a glimpse into the dynamics of the driver’s life: the car contains this personal story and is contained by it. The X-ray view of the interior of the car presents us a view of this connection.  He turns the inside out, putting the technology of the BMW 850 CSi on the outside and making the bodywork seem transparent. The idea of showing the inside without damaging the outer shell. On the bonnet he paints parts of the 380 hp 12 – cylinder engine: big grey cylinders and huge round intake manifolds. He stretches stylised tyre treads, painted in black on white, far beyond the wheel arches, as if you are looking down through the metal from above. On the driver’s side there is a silhouette of a human figure in black and white. Its like the shadow of the driver on a canvas screen. On the passenger side, roof and trunk Hockney depicts a landscape. We can see a short stretch of grey road and lots of green, the lush rich green of California’s trees. Behind the silhouette of the driver is a white dog in an upright position. The dog is looking over the driver’s shoulder and out of the window. The Californian sun shines a powerful yellow and orange in the background.

David Hockney
Born in Bradford, England in 1937, David Hockney came to the forefront of the international art scene in the early sixties and has been one of its most influential protagonists ever since. He studied in Bradford and at the Royal College of Art in London, graduating in 1962, and soon achieved renown as one of the major artistic contributors to the ‘Swinging Sixties.’

Hockney has lived in the United States, to be more precise Los Angeles, since 1964, creating the artistic oeuvre associate with his name today amongst connoisseurs worldwide – images of sunshine, swimming pools, palm trees and clear blue sky. He developed his own individual style of pop art which became as popular as that of Andy Warhol.

Working in California, London, and in the course of his travels, Hockney focuses his attention on people and their environment. His portraits in particular highlight the individuality of their subjects, Hockney’s parents and Hockney’s friends. In the eighties, Hockney worked extensively with photography and in theatre design, two entirely different artistic challenges which fundamentally altered his approach and influence him until this day – even though Hockney has meanwhile returned to painting.

Chennai bags World Record for No Oil No Boil

*300 dishes by 300 people in 5 mins
*Led by Chef Padayal Sivakumar
*Usage of only organic vegetables and fruits, served in eco-friendly products.
*Spreading awareness on Healthy Life Style

There is no magic food to eat for good health. Feed your growing body by making better food choices today for a healthier tomorrow. With growing emphasis on eating healthy among the public lately, the city bagged a unique world record on these lines on Wednesday. 

The Geo India Foundation in association with the Airports Authority of India, under the supervision of Chef Padayal Sivakumar created a world record by cooking a whopping 300 dishes without using oil or fire in just five minutes. It was made by 300 persons comprising of Airport staff and college students who were trained for 48 hours.

The important highlights of the dishes are that they are all made from organic fruits and vegetables and served in eco-friendly products.

 A few interesting items in the 300 dishes include pearl millet laddu, pumpkin kolukattai, fig juice, hibiscus gheer, Ivy guard and mothi bean pasumai koottu, mango pasumporiyal, navadhaniya sprout milk, pomegranate rice, orange rice, Badam pisin jam, tender coconut jam, java plum kesari and sapota payasam.

Talking about the attempt, Chef Padayal Sivakumar said, "All the ingredients used in the dishes today are regular day to day ingredients that a Tamil Nadu household usually uses. This attempt is to show people that one can live a healthy life if they eat a balanced diet. One might wonder how Idly is made without heat, we did it by using flattened rice that doesn't require to be cooked."

Many celebrities took part in the event to witness the world record including Airport Authority Director Mr. chandaramouli, Mr. Mohammed Anikar, Anikar Trust and actress Anjanna.
Most oils are high in sodium, fat and concentrated calories – three major things we do not need in our bodies. We can get all the wholesome nutrients we need, without the empty calories, from a natural, plant-based diet. A major advantage of cooking without oil is the amount of unnecessary added fats you will be eliminating from your meals. If you’re working on losing weight or maintaining a healthier heart, you do not need the fat from oils. Cooking oils are packed with saturated fats which raise cholesterol levels in your blood. According to a research, the average man should not consume more than 30 grams of saturated fat a day, while the average woman should have less than 20 grams. 

The event was held at Chennai Airport Marriage Hall and it was a part of the Healthy Lifestyle festival where exibitors were educating visitors on how they can lead a healthy lifestyle.
