MUMBAI: Guru Randhawa and Mrunal Thakur had an amazing time on the sets of their next single ‘Aise Na Chhoro Mujhe’. While the entire team was under layers of clothes freezing in -10 degrees, both the artists were having snow fights and riding on the snowmobile all around the location. Guru and Mrunal were having such a blast on the set while filming in Kashmir, so much so that director Aashish Panda had to intervene and remind them they were shooting for the music video and had to get in their character. Both these artists, who have paired for the first time together for a music video, got along like a house on fire and completely forgot that the cameras were still rolling. Going by the camaraderie Guru and Mrunal share, we can’t wait to watch ‘Aise Na Chhoro Mujhe’ to catch their electric chemistry. Presented by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, the love song penned by Rashmi Virag and composed by Manan Bhardwaj, is an achingly sweet romantic track that tells a modern-day Romeo-Juliet story.

THE MOST EFFECTIVE SKIN AND HAIR TREATMENTS
With technology improving at the pace of lightening, it is but natural that every sphere of life will become tech-reliant. The field of dermato-trichology has also witnessed big changes. In fact, in 2021, there are far more skin and hair treatments available for the purpose of beautification and rehabilitation, than ever before. But the question begs to be answered—which are the most effective and best?
Oliva is a medico-aesthetic clinic brand rated No.1 in the sphere of Dermatology and Trichology. Claiming the largest team of dermatologists in the country, and with a focus on scientifically-backed treatments that have given them a successful track record, they are probably the best-placed organisation to answer this question.
“We bring you the aesthetics of beauty and the science of medical knowledge as a single unified service. Each consultation at Oliva is conducted by expert doctors who start with a skin analysis and take stock of overall medical conditions before charting out a treatment plan, exclusive to the client. Our carefully balanced combination of aesthetic and clinical approaches—from a simple skin peel to a more advanced medical procedure—suits a variety of skin and body needs. Our holistic approach provides the best that science has to offer. Oliva is, by far, the most comprehensive medico-aesthetic clinic that you can choose,” explains the founder, Dr Soma Prashant.
Having studied medicine at Andhra Medical College, Vizag, he pursued his M.D. in Manipal and then did a Fellowship in Lasers at the National Skin Centre in Singapore. He eventually chose the field of dermatology with the far-sighted vision that lasers would be game-changers in this field. His approach focuses on leveraging ad¬vances in medicine to make people look more beautiful and youthful. Oliva has ad¬vanced facilities with qualified dermatologists and trichologists, skin and hair thera¬pists, and advanced equipment that bring the best of what aesthetic medicine has to offer. They are currently operational in seven major cities of India—Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kochi, Vizag, Kolkata and Pune. Oliva has continuously enjoyed a whopping 91% rating on the satisfaction scale with a loyal base of more than 3,00,000 happy customers.
Some of their most popular services include their Non-Surgical Weight Management Solution; Laser Treatment for Body Hair Removal; Skin Rejuvenation Treatments such as Skin Lightening, Pigmentation Removal, Dull Skin Treatments and Signature Facials. They also have acne and scar removal treatments; Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatments; Inch Loss Treatments; Dermal Fillers; Skin Tightening; Anti-Ageing; Permanent Tattoo Removal; Mole Removal; Stretch Mark Treatments and Wart Removals.
A particularly popular treatment is the one for battling hair loss. The focus is on identifying the underlying cause of hair loss and customising the treatment plan accordingly. A few diagnostic tests may be prescribed to assess the client’s nutritional status after physically examining their hair and scalp condition and noting their medical records and family history of balding. Oral medications may be suggested such as nutritional supplements or injections to correct an underlying deficiency.
“We may advise you to use topical applications like peptide-based serums to strengthen hair roots and follow a customised hair-care regimen. We may recommend the above as standalone or combination treatments depending on the cause and severity of your hair loss. Above all, we offer extensive post-care support and counsel our clients to reassure them that they may expect a reduction in hair fall within the first two months of treatment and that the hair loss condition may subside within three to four months. This helps prevent the vicious cycle of stress-induced hair fall,” explains Dr Prashant.
Though Oliva has a fairly widespread reach around certain parts of the country, the brand constantly strives to reach out to people living in remote parts. Especially after Covid-19, there has been a record number of dermatological concerns as a side-effect of the dreadful infection, which is what Oliva hopes to resolve.
Residents of Hyderabad, Chennai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Pune, Vizag, and Kochi can visit their nearest Oliva clinic to seek expert advice from experienced dermato-trichologists. People living in other parts of the country can connect with their experienced medical team via e-consultation to seek customised treatments and world-class care.

18 DIMENSIONS BY PALETTE ART GALLERY SHOWCASES SCULPTURAL WORKS OF EXEMPLARY INDIAN ARTISTS
The intention behind this exhibition was to offer a range and variety of sculptural expressions and encourage viewer participation and physical engagement with artworks once again, as the city opens up.
The onset of Delhi winters signals the beginning of the art season, which is finally back to its physical setting. Palette Art Gallery, founded by Designers Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna in 2001, opened the season with their exhibition titled ‘18 Dimensions’. On display from 28 November to 6 December at Bikaner House in New Delhi, the show presents the sculptural works of 18 contemporary artists, who have made a significant impact on the Indian and global art landscape.

“The intention behind ‘18 Dimensions’ was to offer a range and variety of sculptural expressions and encourage viewer participation and physical engagement with artworks once again, as the city opens up. For us, this is an exciting medium of expression as sculptural art requires a certain amount of physical presence to be appreciated and this form of interaction can be a motivating factor for people to visit,” explain the gallery owners in a chat with The Daily Guardian.
Palette Art Gallery was conceptualised to give voice to the emerging talent of the day, while also presenting the works of the Masters of Indian Art through the pre- and post-independence period. In the 20 years since its inception, the gallery has covered many milestones. “We pride ourselves on presenting different mediums of artistic expression ranging from the traditional to the experimental. Oils, watercolours, video, photography and performance art have all found a home at our gallery,” explains Gandhi.
With the worst of the pandemic over, Palette was quick to open its doors. They recently did a show at the gallery called ‘Fragments of Imagination’ with multiple artists. Their current exhibit, ‘18 Dimensions’ focuses exclusively on sculptures because they believe this medium reflects its place, its society and its time, and is a key indicator of contemporary cultural achievements.
“Our show has been received very well so far. It covers large territory in terms of materials and methods used—from casting to assemblage. The exhibit studies the involvement of these 18 artists with the influences that probe the limits and possibilities inherent to a sculpture’s three-dimensional physicality,” explains Khanna.
The 18 exemplary artists that are part of this exhibit are Arunkumar HG, Ashiesh Shah, Gigi Scaria, G. R. Iranna, L. N. Tallur, Narayan Biswas, Mrinalini Mukherjee, Manjunath Kamath, Pooja Iranna, Himmat Shah, Jagannath Panda (TCB), Rajesh Ram, Riyas Komu, Sangam Vankhade, Sumedh R, Subodh Gupta, Sudarshan Shetty (TCB), Valay Shende, Vibha Galhotra, and Vipul Kumar.
The most distinctive feature of this exhibition, according to the team, is the display of Late Mrinalini Mukherjee’s works. Her sculptures demonstrate the real and fantastical elements from human anatomy and imaginary biota to look for relationships between man and nature. The work titled Vriksh Nata (Arboreal Enactment) has been displayed in various important exhibitions previously.
Apart from Mukherjee’s work, a number of prominent artists are part of this collection. A few that stand out include artist Subodh Gupta, who is best known for incorporating everyday objects that are ubiquitous across India such as steel tiffin boxes, bicycles, thali pans, milk pails, etc. With the help of these ordinary items, Subodh produces sculptures that reflect on the economic transformation of his homeland, Bihar. These sculptures relate to Subodh’s own life, times, and memories. He says, “For me, the motivation for the small utensil sculpture on display at this exhibition, came largely from the ritual everyday-ness that one experiences in India, a country of many minute cyclic returns that people make every day for reasons often greater than us. This idea of rituality is what I grew up looking at, so my imagery naturally borrows from there.”
Artist Rajesh Ram worked with clay for this exhibit. During the lockdowns, he was unable to visit his studio, and the easiest material available was ceramic clay. He shares, “I find this material interesting and enjoyable. During the lockdown, many things came to my mind, like people’s survival, the development of civilisation, technology, political and historical studies. These are all subjects that reflect through my recent sculptures. I have used glazed ceramic which was planned according to the concept of particular sculptures.”
Both Gandhi and Khanna assert that the pandemic provided a fertile subject for the composition of great art. For the curation of this particular exhibition, their criterion was to amalgamate artistic excellence with a diversity of viewpoints. The seniority of the artists and the capacity and compatibility of the venue space also played a role, as did the need to prioritise artworks addressing social issues. Next, they are gearing up for participation in the India Art Fair.
The co-founders sign off with, “We just want to emphasise that sculpture is an art that is concerned with how people think and feel. So we hope to see everyone reading this article, at the show!”
