Gujarat, Himachal wins: All credit goes to PM Modi, BJP chief Shah 18.12.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service New Delhi, December 18 The BJP on Monday won Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, comfortably, despite the tough tightrope in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state where it had to depend upon his impassioned appeals to the “asmita” of  voters to form the government for the sixth consecutive time there. The credit for the victory, particularly in Gujarat, goes entirely to the Prime Minister and his confidant Amit Shah. The duo managed to pull the party from an embarrassingly poor performance (if not defeat) as was being predicted in the state in the face of two decades of anti-incumbency. However, led by Prime Minister Modi, the saffron party not just secured its sixth consecutive win in Gujarat but also snatched Himachal Pradesh from the Congress, up to 19 the number of states governed by it or with allies. Including Himachal now, the BJP will now have 14 Chief Ministers of its own and that’s huge achievement.  But the results also show the game is very much on for the 2019 Lok Sabha ...

Mumbai food: Indulge in a gourmet ice cream spree at this new joint in Andheri 18.12.2017
In the last few years, with several Bandra eateries opening their second outlets in Versova and Lokhandwala, the sibling neighbourhoods have turned into a foodie's paradise. However, Andheri's DN Nagar is still to find its place in the sun. While a lone ice cream parlour with interesting offerings may not do the trick, it's still refreshing to spot Peko Peko on its map. Launched last month by Le Cordon Bleu alumnus Rishab Varma, the parlour borrows its name from the Japanese term for the rumbling sound of a hungry stomach. Banana chocolate Art on a plate We visit the space post dinner, long after offices in a neighbouring building complex have closed for the day.
