Last week began with Sankranti festivities. Kites of various colours, styles and forms drew hundreds of enthusiasts to the outdoors as they gathered at the annual festival organised by the Golf Course Club at the Golkonda Fort. Popular Telugu actor Sumanth, fashionista Shilpa Reddy, Rummy Azad, Manjula Narsa, Sonal Doshi and others from the social circle were present at the event.
This week, the United States Women’s Polo team, which was on their India tour as part of the five-city international circuit in the country, made a brief stopover here. Raunaq Yar Khan played a perfect host when they landed in the city. Khan, a descendant of the sixth Nizam, had introduced the sport in the country and therefore playing host to the lovely ladies seemed to come naturally to him. A private cocktail and dinner party at his residence in Jubilee Hills was a perfect time for the team to unwind after an engaging match earlier in the day. Janaki Rajagopal, Ananya Simlai, Furhung Singh attended the do.
The sari occupied centre stage this week at the fashion show at Neerus Emporio. Hyderabad Birding Pals along with finance corporate firm Karvy and the Global 100 Sarees Pact Group members from the city collaborated for the event. The theme was Save Wildlife, Birds and Nature. Models walked the ramp in silk saris. Senior IPS officer Tejdeep Kaur Menon and actress Poonam Kaur were the showstoppers of the evening. The event also featured photographs clicked by members of the Bird Club.
