The right roof extension 19.1.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Roofs form a large part of the cost of an extension, particularly, if it is a pitched roof, which is why a lot of people go for the cheaper option of a flat roof. But flat roofs don't last as long and are prone to developing leaks that are hard to fix, as water 'pools' on the surface. They also don't tend to blend in with the rest of the house particularly well, unless the property has flat roofs throughout. Roof exteriors of a house define the a large part of the aesthetics. For generations, we have all built houses using concrete roofing, which have looked kind of quaint and allowed limited flexibility to experiment with design (using concrete as a roofing material). Roof tops which pepper the coastal cities and towns in South India, primarily, are built using clay.

Making sense of chaos 14.1.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Pan Macmillan 2016, pp 242,Rs 299 India's Robert Ludlum (or Dan Brown, if you will!) presents his new book, Skyfire. The main characters of The Shadow Throne join hands again to save the nation, and the world. Since I have not read Aroon Raman's previous books, I dived into this one with a sense of expectancy for the unknown. And an enjoyable satisfying dive it was! Freak floods in the Karakoram ranges close to the Indo-Pak border. Acid rains in many towns. People, especially children, go missing without a trace in Delhi. Is there any link among these events? None whatsoever on the face of it. But the trio from The Shadow Throne — journalist Chandrasekhar, history professor Meenakshi Pirzada, and intelligence officer Hassan — are smarter than you or I. Along with some new characters who play a pivotal role in this book, they join hands to get to the bottom of the sinister plot. The story grips you from the first chapter on (a marker of a readable book), where the author deftly mixes fact and ...
