What: Better Half rings from Soul of Silver, call Anjali on 9820231799, Rs 2,500.

Why: If you’re always losing the better half you hook up with, send out an SOS for these. Partner silver rings, cut and designed to fit together, put a cool spin on Kumbh Mela reunion lockets.

When: You like it and you wanna put a ring on it.

What: Jaipur print cotton boxers, Anokhi, Metro Motors Lane, Hughes Road and Waterfield Road, Bandra (W), Rs 350.

Why: These boxers sport cute Indian print bugs and flowers, but in macho colours like indigo, maroon and white. For shorts you can wear on the outside, Bombay Electric, Colaba, offers custom-made pairs in cool seersucker, checked and pin-striped fabrics. Ladies, they’ll make you some as well.

When: You want ants on your (half) pants.

 

pINPOINT

 

In keeping with our half-life theme, we decided to find Mumbai’s centre point, which landed up being the international airport. Perfect excuse for a vacation!

 

What: How to Cook a Banana Tree, Alila Manggis Resort, East Bali, visit http://www.alilahotels.com/manggis, rooms start at Rs. 7,000.

Why: Because not only is this plush resort surprisingly well priced and located right on the ocean, it also houses a culinary school where you learn how to whip up Balinese seafood, secret recipes that improve your skin, and our favorite: a one-time only lesson on cooking a banana tree from root to tip.

When: You want to chop (and dice) a tree. Class on June 30.

What: Traditional Thai Yoga Massage, Hyatt Regency, Sahar Airport Road, Rs. 4,000.

Why: If lying still and being doused in oil is not your scene, then this dry massage, which combines yoga postures with simultaneous stimulation of pressure points, is perfect for you.

When: You want to travel East, without going Far.

What: Dual flavour cake, by order only, Deliciae, call Ms. Mahajan at 9322288187, Rs 425 for half a kilo.

Why: Two half cakes - kiwi and chocolate, Baileys and coffee – cozy up in a single dessert, but without intruding into each other’s space. A perfect relationship!

When: You want to put an end to the Black Forest vs. pineapple debate that ensues before any birthday party.
