The whole truth
We'd forgotten how much fun it was to laugh with, and at, Naseeruddin Shah. His new play, The Truth, directed by Ratna Pathak Shah, is a genteel comedy of manners. Shah plays KC, a man cheating on his wife with his best friend's wife, Loveleen. While trying to protect the feelings of the two (the wife is portrayed by Avantika Akerkar; the BFF by Gaurav Sharma), he plays cat-and-mouse with subterfuges and little white lies. Shah bites into the role with relish: he's suave and bumbling; a cheat and an honest cheat. The humour is beautifully subtle, and the cast has the repartees down pat. Sharma and Akerkar also bring great dignity to the roles of the wronged party.

Refresh again
Society Tea has rolled out an iced tea premix, in which all you have to do is add cold water and slurp. We tried the lemon flavour in two variants: black and green tea. While both were refreshing, the scales tipped in favour of the latter because it was less sweet and more tangy. We also added some mint leaves for flavour. It's reasonably priced, so a single pack for `30 will serve up to 8 glasses.

Superhero Kalam
Kids love APJ Abdul Kalam. No surprises why children's writer Stuti Agarwal chose the late scientist as the subject of her new fiction, The Adventures of Young Kalam (Juggernaut). It's not hard to imagine a young Kalam - tiny, agile and always scheming for the good of his friends and his townsfolk in Rameswaram - think up crazy innovations. In this book, Kalam is tasked with rescuing his schoolmates from the clutches of a horrid and heartless teacher, Punnakai, who is out to make life a living hell for everyone who dares to challenge her. Together with his best friends Balli and Ram, and scientist/professor Ramachandran, Kalam plays the good ol' saviour. And Agarwal, who knows quite well how to weave a good story, simply makes this ride, rooted in Indian idyll, worthwhile.
