On CB's Couch

New Year with CB’s Favorite People- Part 2

By : Juhi Bansal

You met some amazing ladies in Part -1. They shared their new year resolutions and gave us some good advice for 2015. Now it’s the men’s turn!

These men are CB’s absolute favorites. They are smart, hard working, brave enough to swim against the flow and not to forget -very good looking!

Amar Patel

An Ex-techie (he worked with Caterpillar Inc in the US as a senior R&D engineer), Amar moved back to India a couple of years ago and started a dessert place in Ahmedabad called Buttercupp. Within a couple of months of its opening, Buttercupp became a favourite for Ahmedabadis of all ages and tastes. While his wife bakes, Amar is the happy face behind the counter and an absolute delight to talk to. I blame him for my last ten pounds! (well him and Iy 🙂 )

Amar’s New Year Resolution: Eat healthy food as much as I can (avoid food containing MSG, HFCS, and PHVO). Start brisk walking in the morning.

Advice to CB Readers: Most importantly – make a new year resolution and stick with it till the 31st Dec. On a more serious note love yourself, love what you do or else do what you love and you are guaranteed to leave a mark in history.

Avinash Tiwary

Actor, model and soon to be a filmstar, Avinash is hard work, good looks and great acting-all rolled into one. And did I mention the abs! 🙂

A chance conversation resulted in the interview for CB and now I can call him a friend! He is an extremely warm guy. And again… did I mention the abs! 🙂

You can read more about him here.

Avinash’s New Year Resolution: My new year resolution is to be able to take my shirt off without a second thought :P. On a serious note, I hope to find my long pending break into the cinemas, be more deserving of everything I desire and drink more water :).

Advice to CB Readers: Make this year one that defines you..Be the body, be the mind, be the smile, be the fashion that defines you.

Kaytee Namgyal

Kaytee is Salsa and Salsa is Kaytee! I’ve seen him dance and I still can’t get over it. Ex-director, Salsa India, Kaytee relocated to Rome a few years ago and is now the Art Director of various International Dance Festivals including Istanbul, Russia and Antalya.

Kaytee’s New Year Resolution: My New Years Resolution is to quit smoking and start hitting the Gym regularly.

Advice to CB Readers: Live Life. Don’t think too much. We either go Right or Wrong and Wrong is not that bad at all. It only acts as a good teacher.

Parth Adhyaru

A celebrity fitness expert, Parth has an envious physique and an undying passion for travel. He runs The Fitness Clinic. If you are training under him, you are very very lucky!

We met during a candle meet for Nirbhaya and that’s how I know that the strong body is home to a very big heart.

Parth’s New Year Resolution: My new year resolution is to complete doctoral thesis on alternative medicine (Ph.D). in the best possible manner plus present my paper at the ESPEN congress in Europe!

Message to CB Readers: Follow your passion. Just keep digging deeper. Satisfaction is great but dissatisfaction (higher ambition) is greater!

Pranav Joshi

Pranav needs no introduction. Celebrity chef, restaurateur and consultant, he has several cookery shows on various TV channels under his belt. He has a huge fan following in the Gujarati community and otherwise all over the world! I’ve seen people queuing up just to click a picture with him (and he calmly obliges everyone!). Did I say he is also humility personified! You can catch him every Saturday at 6.30 PM on Zee Khana Khazana in Khaane Bhi do Yaaro.

I’ve known him for a few years now and where this man gets his energy from is still a mystery!

Pranav’s New Year Resolution: My new year resolution is to try and be more disciplined as far as my workout goes. 45 minutes of cardio everyday would be my priority.

Advice to CB Readers: BUY ORGANIC, EAT ORGANIC. It’s the biggest favour you can do yourself!

Pranav Joshi- an amazing chef and an awesome human being

Professional Dancer, photographer and fitness expert, Vineet runs Dance Central and Candid Filmer in Mumbai. He is famous for his ITP or Intensive Training Program whose motto is “Go sore or go home”! (He is a double graduate in engineering and mass media).

(It’s my dream to dance/train under him!)

Vineet’s New Year Resolution: My new year resolution is to screw the “I may” “I hope” “I might ” and replace it with “I will” “I will ” “I will”.

Message to CB Readers: keep yourself happy ..do what makes u happy ..keep the negativity away..stay positive within..let’s the light shine..let you shine..look beautiful stay beautiful. .love and light.

Vineet Bangera- did I mention his abs!

Vineet Bangera- did I mention the bod!
