 Abhiwarya on Oprah today

Set your DVRs for 4pm (EST) today…..Oprah’s topic for this show is “The Most Famous People in the World” and two of the guests are the Hindi fillum biz power couple Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and delish hubby Abhishek Bachchan.   The segment was filmed a few weeks ago.

In the teaser clip on Oprah’s website, she asks the couple “I heard you’ve never kissed on screen, is that true?” And then there’s a shot of AB 2.0 giving the Missus a peck on the cheek as chaste as I’d give the local clergyman.

Wonder if Abhi will teach Stedman how to wrap a dhoti?

Trio Druk Yul

Here are some images from a concert the Bhutanese trio Druk Yul gave at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York.

The performance was preceded by an information-packed gallery tour, examining the thangkas at the museum, and various aspects of Bhutanese art.

The Rubin is a wonderful New York treasure, beautifully designed and laid out in the space that was once Barneys.

Aside from the several floors of Himalayan art, there’s also a cafe and theater and a fantastic gift shop containing some lovely items from South Asia.   (I eye the cuddly stuffed yak toy every time I’m there, and they have an interesting selection of cards and books.   Don’t even get me started on the clothes and home decor items…)

And here is the Trio Druk Yul:
