Javed Akhtar Pushes The Right Buttons! #Ethnic #Fashion @ZeeClassic #IndiPR

Hi Guys, 

While it is not uncommon to spot an embroidered kurta or a sherwani at Indian weddings or festivals, what emerged as an important exposé on the fashion runways, this time, was that designers positioned traditional Indian menswear in the wardrobes not just as festive wear, but also as formal, casual or even club wear. 
Having said that, Javed Akhtar on his latest show ‘The Golden Years’ on Zee Classic is spotted wearing hand-woven ensembles in unusual designs and stunning kurta buttons in silver and beads. His variety of carefully crafted kurtas along with silver and oxidized buttons are the talk of the town. We give you an exclusive sneak-peak into the world of Javed Akhtar’s ethnic wear.

Custom made is the way to go
His regal kurtas are custom made for him with an eye for detail starting from the cloth to design, lining, and style, combining the perfect accessories to add the wow factor. The designer ensures that the handwork and the colors complement each other seamlessly. You can choose from an array of block prints, khadi, applique, embroidery, patch work, linen, and many more.
Color it up
Gone are the days, when men only sported white and black kurtas. Opt for bright and unique colors like orange, blue, burgundy and even yellow. If Javed Saab can pull it off, so can you! You have the freedom to experiment with contrasts and mix match too.
Accessorize right
Accessorizing well can elevate the look of an outfit in more ways than you can imagine. Kurta buttons are making a statement (see images below) and can add grandeur to your look. You can also choose from pocket watches, dupatta, brooches, drapes, etc to make a statement. 
Watch the next episode of The Golden Years: 1950-1975, A Musical Journey with Javed Akhtar this coming Sunday at 8 PM on Zee Classic! Check more out at
It's always to wear your traditional dress when you are living in foreign lands on certain special occassions and what Javed Sir did to his kurta's has brought the bling in the old traditional ethnic wear.

Scottsville Racecourse - Unbridled African Flair @TsogoSun #Pietermaritzburg

Hi Guys,

The eagerly awaited Tsogo Sun Sprint Race is once again gracing the Scottsville Racecourse in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday, 4 June 2016 with this year’s theme being Unbridled African Flair. This world-class race event, which will see celebrities, socialites, sports personalities and the fashion forward descend on the grounds, was first introduced in 1962. Today it is the oldest, biggest and richest sprint event and one of the top six race days on South Africa’s prestigious horse racing events calendar. 

Races on the day include four Grade 1 sprint races; the Tsogo Sun Sprint, the Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion, the City of Pietermaritzburg Filly Sprint and the Allan Robertson Championship. The Grade 1 sprint races will feature the most elite horses from all around South Africa and offer 1 200 metres of speed, power and skill. The Tsogo Sun Sprint is an ‘open race’ for both fillies and geldings, while the Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion is for two-year-old geldings and the City of Pietermaritzburg Filly Sprint is for fillies only. The Allan Robertson Championship, named after the founder of the Thoroughbred Breeders Association of South Africa, will put two-year-old fillies to the test.
 Unbridled African Flair - Tsogo Sun #thelifesway #photoyatra
“This event is for horseracing enthusiasts with a need for speed as four of our Grade 1 races all feature the top sprinters that our country has to offer”, said Tsogo Sun Golden Horse General Manager, Maureen Kivits. “We also look forward to all the fashion and the interpretation that is sure to set the event alight.” 

The City of Pietermaritzburg, has partnered with Tsogo Sun since 2014, to position the event and Pietermaritzburg more strongly on the South African map to drive tourism in the area. This year’s total prize money, which owners, grooms, trainers and jockeys can win on the day, stands at over R3 million, with the main race’s prize money being R1 million. 

Under this year’s theme, African Flair, the event, promises glitz, glamour and panache as the order of the day as fashionistas battle it out for both prize and prestige. Entrance to this not-to-be-missed glittering affair is free of charge so there is no reason not to put on that daring dress or fancy black suit and go turn it up with the rest of the country’s elite.

Predator 17 X Notebook - Conquer New Worlds with Desktop Grade Components and NVIDIA® G-SYNC® 4K UHD Display
Building on the success of Acer’s Predator gaming notebooks but ramping up the performance even further, the new Predator 17 X brings overclocking and desktop grade performance to mobile gaming(2). Powered by a 6th Generation Intel Core i7-6820HK processor, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 graphics, and a custom triple-fan cooling system, it delivers an uncompromising combination of power and portability(2). With overclocking, gamers will enjoy class-leading turbo speeds of up to 4.0GHz for the CPU; up to 1310MHz for the GPU; and up to 3.7GHz for VRAM . Fully ready to tackle virtual worlds, its top-end GPU makes it an ideal “VR-to-go” platform.

For the ultimate in game play, buttery smooth visuals are delivered on the notebook’s 17.3-inch G-SYNC panel. Available with either a FHD IPS (1920 x 1080) or UHD IPS (4K 3840 x 2160) display, NVIDIA G-SYNC technology matches the refresh rate of the screen with the powerful GPU to eliminate screen tearing and minimize stuttering.

All this muscle is enhanced with DDR4-2133 memory and enterprise level NVMe PCIe solid state drives in a three-SATA-SSD RAID 0 array for immense data transfer speeds(2). Killer DoubleShot Pro enables Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections to work together, so gamers can use Ethernet for gaming while at the same time using WiFi for watching, listening to music or Skyping with friends. A Thunderbolt 3 port adds expandability and delivers the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. It is up to 8X faster than USB 3.0 and 4X faster than USB 3.1.

The Predator 17 X also includes a new triple-fan cooling system that maximizes heat dissipation and ensures extreme overclocking performance. An Aeroblade fan located near the GPU uses the world’s thinnest metallic blades (0.1mm) to simulate aircraft wing flight behavior to enhance fan speed, reduce drag and nose. Together, the three fans optimize air flow while an efficient front intake system brings cool air into the laptop. A vapor chamber, most typically used in server environments for high-performance and cooling efficiency, also helps to dispatch the heat and enable better overclocking performance. The Predator 17 X also includes DustDefender and CoolBoost, which uses dual high-speed fans with reverse rotation to remove dust build-up and improve heat dissipation.

Predator 17 X Notebook #thelifesway #photoyatraAcer’s PredatorSense software offers advanced customization options for gaming features like overclock modes, keyboard macro profiles and programmable keys for favorite games and adjustable lighting configurations. In addition, the Predator 17 X’s backlit keyboard includes customizable RGB illumination, so gamers can change and personalize lighting zones colors for specific game or profile setups.

Predator G1 Desktop – Power and Portability Make it Perfect for LAN Parties and Gaming on-the-Go
The Predator G1 (G1-710) gaming desktop squeezes awe-inspiring power into a compact 16-litre body and is designed for gaming at home or on-the-go. This highly transportable gaming beast easily fits under an arm or in an optional carrying case, making it the ultimate war machine for serious gamers and LAN parties.

The perfect balance between compact size and great power, the Predator G1’s 16-liter chassis supports full size NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics (up to Titan X), 6th Generation Intel Core processors and up to 64GB DDR4 memory for supremely smooth gameplay(2). For gamers interested in virtual reality, just plug in a VR headset and get ready to explore new worlds with the Predator G1 leading the way.

The new Predator desktop also includes another must-have gaming feature -- Killer DoubleShot™ Pro, which picks the fastest network connection (Ethernet or Wireless) and sends all high priority traffic over that interface, while standard traffic is sent over the other. This ensures the highest priority traffic is always delivered over the fastest and most reliable link.

With support for G-SYNC and 4K2K Ultra High Definition visuals, the Predator G1 provides stunningly smooth high-quality images, delivering games and movies with unparalleled precision and clarity, while Creative Soundblaster X-Fi MB5 and 7.1 channel audio support provide immersive sound. The Predator G1 also offers massive storage, including up to a 4TB (7200 RPM) hard disk drive(3) or a 512GB solid state drive(3), while a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen. 2 port adds huge expandability and fast data transfer.

Acer’s PredatorSense software can be used to check and control system vitals, set up hotkeys and adjust the multicolored lighting on the customizable “growl lights” along the PC’s front chassis. For extra convenience, dual slide-out headset cradles on each side of the PC let gamers place the G1 against a wall and still have a cradle available for use. Acer also offers a range of optional accessories for the Predator G1 gaming desktop, including a mechanical keyboard, headset and wheeled carrying case.

Pricing and Availability
The Predator 17 X notebooks will be available at leading retailers with prices starting at R 45 999, 00. The Predator G1 desktops will be available at leading retailers R 18 999,00. The new Predator line up was unveiled at the next@acer press event at 4 World Trade Center in New York, where the company announced a range of new devices and solutions for families, students and professionals.
