She might be used to scoring on the tennis court, but India’s tennis sensation Sania Mirza is all set to win the match of her life. This one, of course, involves a love different from the points.
The famous Mirza girl from Hyderabad is reportedly all set to become a pretty bride pretty soon. But she will remain a Hyderabadi and a Mirza as well. That’s because Sania is reportedly getting engaged as early as in July to Muhammad Sohrab Mirza, a 23-year-old B.com graduate from Hyderabad.
Sohrab and Sania have known each other for a few years. Their families have been friends. Sohrab is planning to go to the UK to pursue an MBA degree.
Sania herself is away in Paris playing in the French Open, and it was her father Imran Mirza who confirmed the reports of her engagement.
“This is to confirm that Sania Mirza is engaged to Mr. Muhammad Sohrab Mirza, whose family hails from the city of Hyderabad. Although not related, the two families have had friendly ties for several decades. However, the wedding is not expected to take place for a while,” Imran Mirza said.
But will this mean the end of Sania’s career, the Hyderabadi hurricane?

Milan is a city in Italy and the capital of the region of Lombardy and of the province of Milan. The city proper (Comune di Milano) is renowned as one of the world capitals of design and fashion. The English word millinery, referring to women’s hats, is derived from the name of the city. The Lombard metropolis is famous for its fashion houses and shops (such as along via Montenapoleone) and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in the Piazza Duomo (reputed to be the world’s oldest shopping mall).
Milan is undergoing an urban re-design. Construction projects are under way to rehabilitate disused industrial areas on the periphery. The schemes include the addition to the Teatro alla Scala; the CityLife project in the old “fiera” site; the new quarter Santa Giulia; and the Porta Nuova project in the Garibaldi-Repubblica zone. Many famous architects participate, such as Renzo Piano, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Massimiliano and Daniel Libeskind. The tasks will change the skyline of Milan, which would no longer be dominated by the Duomo and the Pirelli Tower.
FYI Lombardy is bordered by Switzerland (north) and by the Italian regions of Emilia-Romagna (south), Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto (east), and Piedmont (west). Three distinct natural zones can be fairly easily distinguished in the Lombardy region: mountains, hills and plains. The first one is an Alpine zone including the Lepontine and Rhaetian Alps, (Piz Bernina, 4 055 m.), the Bergamo Alps, the Ortles and Adamello massifs; it is followed by an Alpine foothills zone, of which the main peaks are the Grigna Group (2,410 m.), Resegone (1,875 m.) and Presolana (2,521 m.). The great Lombard lakes, all of glacial origin, lie in this zone.

A birthday is a day or anniversary of the particular month and day on which a person was born. Birthdays are celebrated in numerous cultures, often with a gift, party or rite of passage. Although the major religions celebrate the birth of their founders (e.g., Buddha’s Birthday), Christmas – which is celebrated widely by Christians and non-Christians alike – is the most prominent example. In contrast, certain religious groups express principled opposition to the very idea of celebrating birthdays
Planning a winter birthday party, though, can be just as fun as planning a summer birthday party. You just have to plan ahead. If the weather outside is not too terribly cold and there is snow on the ground,, then going outside can be a fun birthday activity. Tell parents to make sure their child dresses warmly. You can build a snow fort, a snow man or go sledding. Having a movie night theme for a birthday is clever and fairly easy to plan. For example, the invitations can be made to look like a movie ticket or you can design them to look like a movie reel with all of the details of the birthday party on them. After the party, you can organise healthy games, and competitions for the children. These include crafting and painting competitions. Story competition is also one of the beloved activities of children at the party. You can also go for face painting, which would create a charm in the party. To put something unique, you can have a fancy dress show at your party. You can also hire somebody wearing the clothes of their favourite cartoon character.
