Jewels Shine in the capital
By Khalid Ansari (fashioncurryfeedback@gmail.com)

A showcasing of four exquisite exhibits of couture jewelry at AKM Mehrasons was an ornamental delight. The event conceptualized by Somya Khurana, the collections were aptly titled The Benaras Collection, The Jharokha Collection, The Marigold Collection, and The of Life Collection.
The Benaras Collection is an attempt to capture the timeless multi-layered essence of Benaras and to interpret it for today’s generation. The collection seeks inspiration from Benarasi brocades and other enduring symbols.
The Jharokha Collection features opulence and grandeur. The motifs of the Jharokha subtly blend like a silhouette on to each one of our modern day designs. With smoothly-finished round accents, the fine diamond slivers help fashion an inimitable style of mosaic. The pink gold chosen for the collection recreates the old glory of sand stone.
The Marigold Collection lends every event an air of piety and auspiciousness. And its colour is a deep orange – the colour of renunciation. Over fifty Marigold petals were cast in gold and discarded, until the final eight were found which form the base of their Marigold collection.
The Tree of life collection reflects the yearning for our roots, where each piece is a uniquely contemporary interpretation of ethnicity. Each piece is testimony of the quest for that ultimate feeling of contentment.

A meal of Gold – rich in taste and texture

Amira Foods (India) Ltd, the leading basmati rice retailer of India launched Amira Pure Basmati with its pearly white texture and delightfully long scimitar shape to enhance the art of dinning and introduce luxury in food.
The rice is the purest form of basmati one can come across.

Pure basmati is different from other rice primarily because of its aroma and elongation post cooking. No other rice has this combined characteristic.

The post cooking elongation of more than twice its original length, the aroma and its sweet taste has made basmati rice a delicacy.

Amira Pure Basmati makes a treat for the eye as the fluffy grains expand double its size when cooked, while staying distinct and separate that slowly melts once it is taken inside the mouth.

Nurtured by nature and perfected by science, these grains remain untouched by hand.

Amira Foods, with an endeavor to bring to its customers the appetizing aroma, visual appeal and unmatched taste of authentic basmati rice has launched Amira Pure Basmati, which will be available across India.
