Dev R Nil with vivek rathore

Fashion Deconstructed
“Old is a new beginning. Old is a new life. A caterpillar yesterday – a butterfly tomorrow.’ This is what Vivek Rathore felt when he first came across the old warehouse. According to him, a warehouse’s adaptive reuse is one of the greenest steps that can be taken environmentally, economically and otherwise. The space that it provides is also unparalleled. He highlighted that the store was 1/3rd the cost of a normal RCC construction and yet much more effective than any other store in a swanky mall. Structures like these exist in various pockets all around Kolkata and must be creatively used, he opined. Dev R Nil, four years and many properties later, finally zeroed on the 3,500 sq. ft warehouse for their store which they themselves have very innovatively designed. They wanted to bring a new flavour to the city’s retail ethos. Kolkata’s varied and diverse art and architecture inspired them. This wonderful space in turn motivates them in their designing. They pointed out that people of Kolkata accept modernity in fashion but still keep their traditional values alive which is why each one of the garments here has retained its own individual identity. Fashion for them is a form of liberation – what you would be comfortable with – your thought process – your style – your confidence. As we saw 6 of our members dressed so beautifully in Dev R Nil’s stylish yet elegant clothes, we all took home some innovative and inspiring tips on fashion and also got a new insight into the inter-relation of architecture and fashion. Many of our members came creatively dressed as was requested by our president, Mukul Agarwal . We hope that they in turn have left some tips for the designer duo Dev and Nil.

Dr Advani & shobha Kameneni

Awareness & Wellness
Dr. Advani threw light on the alarming rate at which cancer is growing in our country. He emphasized on the fact that breast cancer is a life style disease and a change in factors like increased physical activity, reduced fat diet, early child bearing- within the age of 25 and mammography after the age of 40 can help in preventing it and in early detection. He also pointed out that 40% of oral, throat and lung cancer is mainly because of tobacco. Dr. Advani enlightened the audience about new treatments like multimodality and biological therapy. He stressed on the importance of palliative medicine and care, relieving pain and on keeping the patients hope alive. Shobana Kamineni spoke on the growing medical awareness of the people and she considers Apollo not as a place for treatment but for wellness. She also added that Apollo is instrumental in reversing brain drain to a great extent. On being asked about the elements of humane and emotions, Ms. Kamineni highlighted on the need of giving time and having conversations with the patients to give them and their family hope and courage. To throw light on the advancement of technology, she said that in future, an ECG would tell us of an approaching possible heart attack 1 to 2 years hence. Both the speakers effectively answered many queries of the audience on cervical cancer vaccination, mammography, predictive gene test, health foods that prevent cancer and effect of stress on cancer. At the end of one and a half hours, the members of the ladies study group felt medically much more enlightened than ever before.
