M. D: Eternal Creation (www.eternalcreation.com), with shops in Calangute and Mcleodganj, has wonderful clothing and accessories for women and kids. This Aussie designer employs Indian and Tibetan women to create her designs. This is ethical fashion at its best!
K.V: 60 km from Bhuj a quiet strip of one of the nicest beaches in India is Mandvi. A minutes walk from this beach and you are in the midst of 10 luxury tents and this resort is called "The Beach at Mandvi Palace". Owned by the Maharaja's nephew this retreat is unspoilt by the 5-star standard fare and is unique with its own stately charm…
V. J: I recently went on a soul searching holiday to Sikkim and ended my journey in a peaceful little village of Pelling where I stayed in the luxurous heritage hotel - Elgin Mount Pandim (www.elginhotels.com). You can feel its royal history as soon as you enter its gates opposite the monastry. WIth views of the magnificent Kanchenjonga range from every room window, it was like waking up in paradise every morning.
A.C: Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu has the best Tibetan food ever, courtesy of the hill station’s large Tibetan population. I went to boarding school at KIS, and would gorge myself on the cheese momos at Tibs, at Seven Roads.
V.B: Reduta Jazz Club in Prague is a great little place for music and a drink (they serve no food). Bill Clinton played the sax here, on a Czech visit.
