This is with reference to the article on coolers in the April
issue of your magazine. I really liked the article and I quite
enjoy mixing cocktails for my own house parties. You have
mentioned that the author has also published a book on the
subject. Could you please tell me where I could get my hands
on a copy. I also wanted to know where I could find some recipes
on wine based coolers.
The scars of SARS
The current SARS issue has really upset travel plans. Travel
anyways was becoming increasingly unsafe post-9/11. The Gulf
war and now SARS were the latest to hit the industry. While
the leisure traveller has the choice to stay home and holiday
within the country, business travellers do not have that luxury.
The option is either to endanger your life or to incur losses,
both of which are not feasible.
I read about the opening of the Jacques Dessange salon in
Mumbai with great interest. I had used their products during
a stint in France about two years ago and I really think that
they are excellent in terms of quality. Would you be kind
enough to tell me whether they intend to open salons in other
I must confess at having been pleasantly surprised when the
newspaper boy dropped in the feBusiness Traveller along with
The Financial Express. The latter, in my view, though an excellent
pink paper for executives like me, had been a little deficient
on the fun quotient. That lacunae has now been
corrected. Good going.
