he brand Yamaha always strives
to create inspirational experiences for its customers and that
is why all its product offerings reflect the
company’s DNA of being sporty, stylish,
innovative and aspirational. It’s no surprise then that Yamaha scooters have
built a growing fan following among
today’s independent girls, who do not
hesitate to carve their own path in life.
Yamaha Fascino celebrates this very
spirit of Indian girls by associating as
the title sponsors for the Yamaha
Fascino Miss Diva Universe 2014. The
pageant provides a global stage for the
girls to express their beauty and talent.
It’s not only a launch pad for national
and international fame, but also one that
helps them take up important causes and
gives them a platform to address their
need for adventure and their passion for
achievement.
Says Roy Kurian (Vice President,
Sales and Marketing, Yamaha Motor
India Sales), “We are proud to be the title
sponsors of the pageant. Being a youthful
brand, we want to appeal to modern girls
of today, who, like the brand, are breaking conventional boundaries and setting
new standards for what they believe in.
We wish good luck to all the finalists and
hope the winner bring India international glory at Miss Universe 2014.”

t was an evening
brimming with
music and a touch
of nostalgia, as Sahajiya Foundation organized a tribute to
Tinkari Chakraborty,
who breathed his last
on August 30. With a
bevy of musicians in
attendance, the event
turned out to be a
memorable one.
The packed-to-capacity auditorium lapped up performances by
the bauls along with
Tanmoy Bose and
Bickram Ghosh, who
played Tinkari’s dubki
as a mark of respect.
Singer Swapan Basu
rendered a mahajani

a magician. It was a
delight to see these
performers together
on one stage,” said Deb
Chowdhury.
A documentary
on Tinkari was
also shown during
the event.
