opportunities to flaunt your ethic traditional jewellery as it accentuates both light and heavy outfits Top News Confused about what type of jewellery will go with your outfit It is important to pick wisely wear with style and flaunt it with grace says an expert Himanshu Malik Founder and CEO of Glitzzerrcom (online shopping portal for jewellery) shares some tips to pick out the right jewellery for the right occasion: – Corporate dressing: Minimalistic and sleek designs go best — be it bracelets pendants or earrings They not only refine your outfit but also add a subtle bling giving your outfit a classy finish One should not wear blingy and sparkling pieces to their workplace Men can opt lapel pins to enhance their look and top it up with a leather strap watch – With casuals: Bold colours if paired well can take the style quotient several notches higher Club your casuals with stylish necklaces multi-coloured bracelets and bold statement pieces that are eye-catching and at the same time exude casual elegance Similarly men can opt for multiple leather bands and experiment with big stainless steel watches Accessorise with trendy pieces such as decorative rings and fashionable belt buckles which are great add-ons – Evening party: For women opting for gowns and dresses it is recommended to keep it subtle especially if your outfit is made of bold colours with shimmer and sequence For flowy or straight-cut outfits you can choose a big piece of jewellery in a contrast colour to add a regal touch Men wearing tuxedos or suits should not forget to add a stylish pair of cufflinks Also a pocket watch can elevate the overall appeal by adding an opulent grace – For festive occasions: Follow the rule of the opposites here For instance if your sari suit or lehenga is lavish balance it out by keeping your jewellery light and in matching with tones of your outfit The wedding season brings forth many opportunities to flaunt your ethic traditional jewellery as it accentuates both light and heavy outfits You can always experiment with fusion jewellery which is a blend of traditional and modern jewellery and is currently in vogue While dressing for a festive occasion men should choose their colour combinations carefully — a light bottom wear should be paired up with a dark upper and vice-versa They can experiment with embossed metal or meenakari buttons

latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Kaushiki Chakraborty | Published: April 5 2017 1:02 am Kishori Amonkar Top News I don’t remember the year because I was very young even Baba (father and vocalist Ajoy Chakrabarty) was young when I first heard Kishori Amonkar at a music conference We did not have too many female artistes alongside men at music festivals and she was a bright and prominent name She was on stage and at her peak My memory is of loads and loads of people going mad to listen to her and the crowd that surrounded her afterwards This speaks of her acceptability among listeners Then there was her voice; it was the sweetest voice we had heard in reference to Indian classical music We were used to the voices of Begum Akhtar and Gauhar Jaan but Kishori tai’s voice was very mellifluous of a high pitch and a fine timbre Amol Palekar and Sandhya Gokhale have made a documentary on Kishori tai called Bhinna Shadja He asked me to perform for a birthday celebration planned for Kishori tai in Pune several years ago The concept was also called Bhinna Shadja and I would be part of a trio that also included Nandini Bedekar one of the closest disciples and associates of Kishoriji I had never performed a duet before leave alone a trio and did not know how comfortable I would be But it was a tribute to Kishori tai and I said yes right away It was the only time I sang for her in her presence In our tradition to be in the presence of a guru-like figure is a blessing for youngsters for we benefit from the vibes that they send out After the performance she spoke to me It is extremely humbling to have a god-like figure bless you Two things happened — firstly I was blown away by her English accent We expect someone elderly to speak in Hindi or Marathi but she spoke like a professor of English who had travelled the world This speaks a lot about her interest in contemporary modes of expression because one has to be attuned to modern trends to speak that way The second thing was what she said She told me ‘I want you to sing to express not impress’ Thanks to my family and my performances I have met many maestros and remember their blessings and the insights that they have given me What Kishori tai said that day has gone into the Bible of my life Our generation performs to impress at so many levels — audiences organisers connoisseurs sponsors — but here was a legend telling me there was no obligation to impress She was so happy committed and secure in her art that she was under no obligation to cater to anybody else This also speaks volumes of her courage Her music itself was a statement From choosing a treatment of a raga to the structure of a performance to the songs she did not make compromises She became popular on her own terms I last heard her perform around four years ago An artiste changes with age and so does his or her art Kishori tai’s music became more introspective and meditative She has said herself in an interview that the stillness that had come into her music was not there before She was going deeper into her music and into herself Kaushiki Chakraborty is a Hindustani classical
