मोनी रॉय, रशमी देसाई, अर्जुन बिजलानी में क्या है वोह 1 सामान्य बात?

हिना खान, स्रिति झा, करणवीर बोहरा, सुरभि ज्योति, लविना टंडन, सोनारिका भदौरिया, शाइनी दोशी, पूजा बोस, श्रीजीता दे, शयंतानी घोष और कई अन्य लोकप्रिय टीवी अभिनेता पिनाकल सेलिब्रिटी मैनेजमेंट एजेंसी से अपने करियर का प्रबंधन करवाते हैं।

साल 2006 में अलीगढ़ के रहनेवाले संतोष गुप्ता ने पिनाकल सेलिब्रिटी मैनेजमेंट को शुरू किया था। संतोष पेशे से एक चाटर्ड अकाउंटेंट थे।

अब यह कंपनी एक प्रीमियम एजेंसी बन गई है, जो कि ज्यादातर टेलीविजन कलाकारों की तलाश है। संतोष की पिछत्तर कलाकारों की एक प्रभावशाली श्रृंखला है जिन को उनकी कंपनी मैनेज करती है।

“हर दो मिनट के ग्लैमर के लिए, कड़ी मेहनत के आठ घंटे हैं” – जेसिका साविच, अमेरिकी पत्रकार

यह लाइन आज के कटथ्रोट एंटरटेनमेंट उद्योग का वर्णन करती है।

बहुत काम सेलिब्रिटी मैनेजर को सही ब्रांड टाई-अप और सर्वोत्तम मूल्य प्राप्त करना आता है।

संतोष कहते हैं, “हम न केवल ग्रूमिंग प्रदान करते हैं, बल्कि कलाकार के समय सारिणी, मीडिया सेवाओं, मार्केटिंग और विज्ञापन अभियानों, प्रचार, लांच पार्टियां और व्यक्तिगत काम का प्रबंधन भी करते हैं।”

संतोष गुप्ता इस क्षेत्र में 12 साल से हैं, उन्होंने अलीगढ़ मुस्लिम विश्वविद्यालय से स्नातक किया और वहां चार्टर्ड अकाउंटेंसी अध्ययन पूरा किया। अपने स्कूल के दिनों से ही उद्यमिता की भावना रखने वाले संतोष, बचपन से ही कहानी की किताबें और वीडियो गेम किराए पर देते थे।

“हमारे अनुभव के माध्यम से हमने टेलीविजन क्षेत्र में एक बढ़ते स्टार को चुनने के लिए कुछ दूरदर्शिता विकसित की है। मेरा टीवी के लिए जुनून था और टीवी के विकास की कहानी को देखकर मैंने इस क्षेत्र में कुछ काम करने का निश्चय किया। श्री बच्चन ने स्टार प्लस के केबीसी की मेजबानी शुरू की थी और मैंने देखा कि वो किस तरह लोगों के दिलों तक पहुंच गए। मैं हमेशा टीवी हस्तियों की आभा को ब्रांडों और इवेंट्स से जोड़ने के बारे में सोचा करता था” संतोष ने कहा।

“कलाकार प्रतिनिधित्व अब एक आवश्यकता बन चुकी है। परिवर्तन धीरे-धीरे हो रहा है और हमारी तरह की एजेंसियां इसमें सबसे आगे हैं। हर निर्णय का कलाकार के कैरियर पर सीधा प्रभाव पड़ता है, इसलिए हमें अपने निर्णय में तेजी लाने के लिए बहुत कुछ जानकारी होनी चाहिए, ताकि प्रत्येक मौके को पूरा किया जा सके “संतोष जी ने पप्रबंधन के व्यवसाय के बारे में समझाते हुए कहा।

संतोष जी ने आगे बताया कि, “मुझे विश्वास है कि अगर युवाओं में सही स्वभाव और धैर्य हो, तो वे अच्छे सेलिब्रिटी मैनेजर बन सकते हैं। हम आम तौर पर बड़े पैमाने पर मीडिया और प्रबंधन स्नातकों को टीम का हिस्सा बनना पसंद करते हैं क्योंकि उन्हें व्यापार की व्यापक समझ होती है। एक सेलिब्रिटी मैनेजर को 24×7 उपलब्ध होना चाहिए।”

2018 से संतोष निर्माता भी बन गए हैं और उन्होंने एम टीवी पर
‘ए डेट टू रेमेम्बेर’ नामक रियलिटी शो का निर्माण किया है। इसके अलावा वह बालाजी बॉक्स क्रिकेट लीग टीम ‘मुंबई टाइगर्स’ के सह-मालिक हैं। “यह हमारे लिए एक प्राकृतिक प्रगति थी। हम एक संगीत बैंड बनाने की प्रक्रिया में भी है” संतोष गुप्ता ने कहा.।

Mythical Masalas – Reviving the lost wonders of Indian Cuisine at the Hyatt Pune!

2) Boti ni Akuri- Parsi Community
(Persian version of egg bhurji with lamb boti


March 14, 2018: The mouth-watering delicacies from Indian cuisine are heavily laced with history and we Indians have a deep association with the kitchen, which sort of make experiences with food nothing short of valued inheritances. However, many recipes were lost over time due to various reasons. Hyatt Pune, Kalyani Nagar; known to curate exciting food festivals, brings to you, an interesting and intriguing dining experience as we celebrate some of these lost recipes and hope to give you an insight into the glorious past of the majestic kitchens of India and travel back in time for a gastronomical experience like never before.

The kitchen of Eighty Eight is in a frenzy of sorts with the excitement this festival has bought in. Chef Suvendu Roy – Head Chef at Hyatt Pune has toiled very hard to bring back some of these lost culinary treasures after a lot of research at the ongoing food festival called “Mythical Masalas” starting 10th March, 2018 – 20thMarch, 2018. For the festival, the chef along with his talented team have recreated some of the long lost wonders of Indian Cuisine from all parts of the country starting from the coastal line of Kanyakumari to the eastern mountain ranges of Arunanchal Pradesh and from the city of Joy – Kolkata.

Speaking about the festival, Chef Roy was quoted as saying, “India has a rich cultural heritage where food has played an important role. One of the bright spots of India’s colonial legacy is food. Grandmas will pass on a chutney recipe to you with the same intensity as someone passing on a princess cut diamond ring handed down through generations! We wanted authentic dishes for our patrons and thus we have on-board for this festival, the powerhouses that rules our kitchens – Mothers of some our chefs who could spare sometime and visit us and impart to us their expertise and knowledge about the food that they have grown up with. Under their able guidance, we have attempted to resurrect these dishes in a very special menu available for our Dinner Buffets at Eighty Eight. Our #MythicalMasalas food festival celebrates the way things were – when grains were locally sourced and ground by hand for layered, flaky rotis… when mutton wasn’t tender enough to plate until it had sizzled on the spit for a day and a night.”

What makes this food festival unique and special? Two flavoursome recipes will be showcased on a separate section of the buffet counter at Eighty Eight every day. The food-experts on-board will be invited to come to the kitchen and prepare dishes with the assistance of the hotel team. The exciting part is that some of the sapid and heavenly dishes which would get best response from the guests will get a place in the actual Eighty Eight a la carte menu. Expect the unexpected at this festival with dishes like Boti ni Akuri (Parsi Dish), Chicken Kori Rotti (Mangalorean Chicken Curry) and Harive Soppu Bendi (Karnataka) to name a few.
It’s time to travel on a plate with the Mythical Masalas this March at Hyatt Pune.

Date: March 10 – 20, 2018
Time: 7pm – 11pm
Venue: Eighty Eight at Hyatt Pune, Kalyani Nagar

Doctors on cycles all over!

Doctors on cycles all over
New Delhi 11th March 2018: Over ten cycle rallies were organized in Delhi. Past National President IMA Dr KK Aggarwal flagged off rallies organised by IMA South Delhi Branch, IMA New Delhi Branch and IMA Central Delhi Branch. He also attended a rally organised by IMA East Delhi Branch.
Flagging off the South Delhi Rally, in a joint statement Dr Aggarwal and Dr Savita Puri President SDB said the profession is for affordable healthy care for the public. And government policies like National Commission bill, criminalisation of medical practice and non-friendly clinical establishment acts are not in the interest of the community.
Addressing the IMA rally of NDB and CDB Dr Aggarwal, Dr Ashwani Dalamiya and Dr IPS Kalra said that IMA condemns inhuman incidences like what happened in Jhansi yesterday but they are sporadic cases and should not be taken as representing the professional image.
Others who participated were Dr Narender Saini, Dr RN Tandon, Dr Prachi Garg, Dr Rajeev Dheer and Dr Sudesh Ratan.

The Rally is against National Medical Commission (NMC). Addressing the rally Dr. Manoj K. Sobti explained that this bill is UNDEMOCRATIC because the NMC Bill consist of 25 members out of which 20 will be nominated by Central Government & 5 will be Elected from all the states of India, which means that the most of the states will not be representing in the central body (NMC). IMA objects to the nomination of Non-medical persons in NMC. Doctors want to be stake holders in NMC.
Dr. Sobti further said that NMC is ANTI-PEOPLE, ANTI-POOR & PRO-RICH because the private medical colleges are allowed to fix fee of 40% medical students at their own will, while the fees of 60% will be fixed by the Government, which means to become a medical graduate will be a very costly affair, out of reach for a common man.
This bill against the sons’ of soil policy because the foreign medical graduates will be allowed to practice in India while the medical graduates in India will have to appear in Exit Exam to practice in India & do further study.
Dr. Arun Gupta President IMA Ludhiana objected to the BRIDGE COURSE for AYUSH doctors. It’s unfair that AYUSH doctors after training for just 6 months can practice allopathic. This amounts to the public being treated by half-baked doctors.
Dr. Saroj Aggarwal Secretary IMA Ludhiana informed that the Memorandum against this Bill will be given to Member of Parliament Mr. Ravneet Singh Bittu. So that he can oppose this bill in the parliament. She further thanked the doctors for participating in the rally & Avon Cycles for sponsoring Cycles for Rally.
