Villa Pottipati - Experience heritage Bangalore

April 19, 2013

The 140-year-old colonial bungalow welcomes you with the heady fragrance of flowers from its magnificent Cannonball tree. Located in Malleswaram, the heart of Bangalore’s traditional Brahmin community, Villa Pottipati is engulfed in the serenity of a lush garden, offering respite from the bustle of flower sellers and vegetable vendors outside. Anisha Rachel Oommen spends a day and a night and returns with the impression that here, heritage takes on a living, breathing avatar.

  • Answer a Kevin Durant question? Don’t make Russell Westbrook laugh

    Nice try, but Russell Westbrook’s lips remain sealed. Russell Westbrook has FINALLY broken his silence on Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Golden State Warriors! Well … kind of. Hey, a loud laugh in response to the question, “How you feel about Durant, man?” is noise! That technically means the silence is broken … even if Russ didn’t actually say anything, and if we don’t know for sure whether that laugh means anything more than, “I am 100 percent not going to answer that question.” It counts!

  • Vikings quarterback severed tendon putting foot through window

    Around this time we see reports from training camp regarding injuries sustained on the field, but Vikings backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke found a way to get injured off of it. Heinicke showed up to camp wearing a cast, and rolling around on a scooter, which prompted questions about how he sustained the injury. The second-year undrafted quarterback explained how he hurt himself, and he admitted he was embarrassed by how it went down.

  • Huge If True: Will Canucks take on Evander Kane?

    Last week in this space, we discussed whether the Vancouver Canucks would be able to trade for a scoring winger. At the time, though, the idea that Evander Kane would be the target was a little farfetched. Kane was arrested late last week for allegedly harassing three women, and potentially choking and pulling the hair of one of them.

  • This video of Lionel Messi in training is just glorious (Luis Suárez nutmeg included)

    Lionel Messi is awesome. Not only did he cut his vacation short so he could rejoin the Barcelona squad a week earlier to train with his teammates in England and play every friendly match in preseason, he is also using the training sessions  to show just how amazing he is. These are just 140 seconds of greatness. Messi is laughing in the Rondos as he makes his teammates look like fools, he's dribbling Mathieu like he's not even there, and he's even nutmegging his good friend Luis Suárez just because why not. He's also scoring goals on little posts, because every goalpost is big enough for Messi. Just wish Messi was not blonde. But hey, you can't always get what you want. Still, Messi, you're awesome.

  • Back in Chicago, Dwyane Wade hits stage in Lollapalooza surprise

    Dwyane Wade performs on-stage at the Bud Light Stage Moment at Lollapalooza at Grant Park on July 28, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. Three weeks after agreeing to terms on one of the more stunning deals of the summer, the Chicago Bulls will introduce Dwyane Wade at a Friday afternoon press conference. The All-Star shooting guard got to town a bit early, though — early enough to check out a crosstown interleague baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox, and to make a special appearance at the opening of Lollapalooza, the massive music festival held each summer in Chicago’s Grant Park.

For while Chelsea manager Antonio Conte fielded something akin to a Premier League starting XI, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp opted to debut a number of his new signings.

By the time he struck out Avisail Garcia to wrap up a perfect inning and a Cubs 8-1 win over the White Sox, he’d whipped them into a frenzy.

  • Brad Keselowski: ‘Road courses remain the most dangerous tracks in motorsports’

    LONG POND, Pa. — Brad Keselowski was blunt about his crash this week at Watkins Glen, saying “there’s only so many of those hits you’re going to take before someone gets killed.’’ The former Sprint Cup champion walked away after hitting the Turn 1 tire barrier nearly head-on Tuesday during a test. He crashed after he lost his brakes because a brake line was not installed properly. The accident was similar to an accident Denny Hamlin walked away from there in 2011. This was Keselowski’s second big crash at a road course since 2011. He suffered a broken left ankle when he wrecked while testing at Road Atlanta. While safety changes since helped Keselowski avoid injury this week, he still has issues

  • Chip Ganassi: The real reason Target is leaving IndyCar

    LEXINGTON, Ohio – Team owner Chip Ganassi scoffed Friday at the notion Target is leaving his Verizon IndyCar Series team at season’s end as a result of something happening – or not happening – within the sport. In other words, IndyCar’s low-but-improving television ratings didn’t drive Target out, he said. “It doesn’t say anything about IndyCar racing,” Ganassi said during a break in practice at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. “It doesn’t say anything about (motor sports). It doesn’t say anything about TV ratings. “It’s a business decision that Target made. I don’t think there’s any secret message, hidden agenda or ulterior motive. It’s not a referendum. There’s no sub-story here. “They been

    Perpetually troubled linebacker Rolando McClain did not show for the team charter from Dallas to Oxnard, Calif., where the team holds training camp, on Thursday, and had not showed as of Friday afternoon. The team placed both McClain and Randy Gregory on the reserve/did not report list, opening up two roster spots. Where the Cowboys knew that Gregory wouldn’t be showing – news came Monday that he was checking into a treatment facility for an unspecified problem – it appears McClain being M.I.A. is a surprise.

  • Camp observations, Day 2: New Orleans Saints offense has to go underneath

    WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- The Saints' once again had a solid day on defense during Friday's practice. There were a handful of instances where the quarterbacks were forced to check down after seeing their deeper options were limited, and another few times when quarterback Drew Brees was forced to throw the ball away after seeing his targets disappear. Although it's early and it will take more than two practices to change the fortunes, coach Sean Payton is pleased with the early signs. "From an offensive standpoint, there's a patient element to being productive. You hear that term kind of taking what the defense gives you," Payton said. "The point being is that it's an element to where the

Johnson, along with Stenson and Danny Willett, made up this year’s version of the famed major winners grouping, the trio of calendar-year winners that the PGA Championship traditionally pairs together in the first two rounds.

  • Doc Rivers: If Paul Pierce retires, Clippers would let him join Celtics first

    Clippers forward Paul Pierce is mulling retirement, which would mean another franchise icon could leave the NBA this summer — Lakers great Kobe Bryant, Spurs great Tim Duncan and Celtics great Pierce. However, unlike Kobe and Duncan, Pierce left his original team. Personally, I don’t think stints with the Nets, Wizards and Clippers do much to diminish Pierce’s Boston bona fides. Everyone will remember him as a Celtic. Fifteen years and a championship in Boston will do that. But just in case you need more reason to tie Pierce to the Celtics, Clippers president/coach and Pierce’s former Boston coach Doc Rivers has a plan. Rivers, as transcribed by Jay King of MassLive: “If Paul decides to retire
