Fancy Nameplates for house doors

Give your name a designer touch
Calligraphic font, classic or contemporary look and a variety of materials like wood, glass or metal give people creative freedom to fulfil their wish of having a designer nameplate













































You must have spent lots to design your home. After all, your home is an expression of your personal style so it deserves to look good. But have you thought about your entrance? Shouldn’t it also reflect your identity? Give it your distinct touch with personalised name plates.
The Kapoor’s would like to write their name in a designer font while the Mehta’s want it to be adorned on copper and Roy’s would like to welcome you in ethnic way. These are the kind of demands made to the name plate makers. With most spending an enormous amount of money to get their home designed exquisitely, people believe that they should not miss out on getting a designer name plate.
While there are some who choose name plates which are put on display at stores, a few others prefer getting them customised according to their door size. Nerul resident, Ekta Bhakshi decided to get a name plate customised for their renovated home. “We had been on the lookout for an ideal nameplate for many months. Finally when my husband went to Kerala for some official work, he came across a really unique name plate and decided to buy it. It’s apt for our door,” said Bhakshi. At most stores name plates start from Rs1,600. Stores too have started understanding customer’s requirements so they keep various samples ready from which people come and select the best suited one for their home.
Seawoods resident Surubhi Angoankar said, “I had seen a really well-carved name plate at Karigar store in a mall just few days ago. It had a designer touch to it in an ethnic way. I may soon buy it.” She further added, “A nameplate is a thing which needs to have a personal touch to it and hence I feel everyone in the family should give their suggestions on how they would like it to be.”
Wooden, glass and metal name plates are in demand. However, some do not prefer to buy the glass nameplate because these are not long-lasting and are extremely heavy. The Bombay Store in Vashi has a range of aesthetically designed name plates with artistic writing styles on them. These begin from Rs1,550. The store has even kept in mind the religious sentiments of people and hence has name plates with miniature portraits of God’s on them. Kharghar resident Shilpi Mehta considers this to be a good idea. She says that having a miniature of a Ganpati or Lakshmiji on the name plate can make it look beautiful besides it reflecting your religious nature as well. But then again that’s on each one’s personal choice.
Airoli resident Anish Raman said that one needs to choose a name plate very carefully for their home. “We had purchased a fancy name plate few years ago. However, since it was based on metal, it lost its shine after a certain period of time. Hence the next time I preferred for a wooden name plate,” said Raman.

Industrialist Akanksha Rathi found dead

Industrialist Akanksha Rathi found dead

A week after filing a dowry harassment complaint against her in-laws, Akanksha Rathi, director of prominent Indore-based company Rathi Iron and Steel Industries Limited (RISIL), was found dead at her Dwarka house on October 23, police said on Monday.
With her movie-star looks, foreign degree and uber-cool designer handbags, Akanksha was known for lending a muchneeded ‘wow factor’ to local business, especially the steel sector — traditionally a male bastion.
The Ivy League graduate arrived in Indore to set up RISIL with her husband Aniruddha in 2004-05. Akanksha, who received the 'Outstanding Entrepreneurship Award-2009' at the Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards (APEA), also penned a column on fashion for the Hindustan Times during 2009-10.
Police investigating Akanksha’s death said that the 32-year-old may have strangulated herself with a chunni. However, they are also looking at drug overdose as a possible cause of death.
“The body was found at her father’s house in Sansad Vihar society in Dwarka sector 3,” a police officer said. Sources said she came to Delhi from Indore after her husband died of a heart-attack on September 4.
“Rathi had lodged a case of dowry harassment against her in-laws and three other members of her husband’s family at the Mahila Thana on October 16. We were investigating the case… it is shocking that she committed suicide while the investigation was underway,” said DIG Indore A Sai Manohar.
A Mahila Thana team of Indore police was sent to Delhi on Monday to gather more details regarding the case.
Delhi Police also claimed she had been undergoing treatment for depression for the past three years.

Security guard at Mahim ATM attacked

Security guard at Mahim ATM attacked

In the second incident in four months, a security guard at an ATM kiosk in Mahim was physically assaulted by unidentified men on Monday. While their robbery bid failed, the security guard sustained injuries.
SAROJ KUMAR DORA/HT The Andhra Bank ATM in Mahim where the incident occurred. Around 4am, three masked men barged into the Andhra Bank ATM kiosk at Mori Road, which is hardly a kilometre away from the Mahim police station. The guard, Rohidas Rajput, 30, was seated inside. “While one of them pulled the shutter down, the other two threw chilli powder in Rajput’s eyes,” said Kishore Sawant, inspector, Mahim police station.
The trio then allegedly beat up Rajput using a stick. “They tied him up and hit him on the head. For 15 minutes, they tried to break open the machine using hammers and other tools,” said another security guard for the kiosk, who checked the CCTV footage later.
After trying unsuccessfully for some time, they fled. Rajput managed to free himself and contact his employers, who then alerted the police. He was taken to the Bhabha Hospital in Bandra, from where he was discharged later in the day.
The footage has been captured in the CCTV cameras at the kiosk. “As their faces were covered, we have not been able to identify them,” said Sawant.
The Mahim police have registered a case of attempt to robbery against three unidentified men. The police suspect that the three are locals who had surveyed the spot several times.

Tough times for commuters will continue. After the hike in fares for black and yellow taxis and auto rickshaws, the fare of air conditioned fleet cabs in the city is also set to rise from next month.

Fleet cabs fares to go up too, interim hike approved

State body approves hike of around 20%, panel formed to look into final fare formula

 Tough times for commuters will continue. After the hike in fares for black and yellow taxis and auto rickshaws, the fare of air conditioned fleet cabs in the city is also set to rise from next month.
 
FLEET TAXIS IN CITY
  The state transport authority (STA) has approved an interim fare hike by up to 20% for fleet cabs, which is likely to come into effect from November 5, according to sources. Details of the final hike will also be worked out, which will be implemented later.
Depending on the make of the cab, the current minimum fare for fleet cabs ranges from Rs22 to Rs28, and the fare for each subsequent km is between Rs15 to Rs21 (see box for details).
The STA, chaired by acting transport secretary Sumit Malik has also decided to form a committee to look into the various issues pertaining to the fare hike in fleet cabs
Though transport commissioner VN More, also an STA member, confirmed that the fare hike had been approved, he refused to disclose any more details and said: “Let the minutes of the meeting be approved.”
At present, there are more than 5,000 AC radio cabs in the city, run by five companies – Meru, Mega cabs, Easy cabs, Aarya and Tab cabs.
A highly placed source said that there were conflicting opinions about which formula to adopt for the fare hike.
While some members were in favour of adopting the stateappointed Hakim panel’s formula, used for black and yellow taxis and autos, a few were of the view that it would not be applicable to fleet cabs. The STA has thus decided to appoint a committee to look into issues regarding fare hikes.
While sources said the committee will submit the report within two months , Malik was unavailable for comment. Till the report is finalised, the interim hike will be in place.
The previous hike for fleet cabs was implemented in September 2010.
The Association of Radio Cab Operators (ARCO) has demanded a hike in fleet taxi fares by Rs7 per km after the minimum distance.
They have also asked for the minimum distance for fleet cabs to be raised to 5km (from the current 1.6km) if they were booked through the call centre or website, apart from a revision in waiting charges.
