In fact, some building societies often come up with their rules to stop the sale or rent of flats to single women, especially women from â'shady backgrounds'. But there are ways to circumvent these rules and get a house. More »A Single Girl's Guide to Buying or Renting a House

  • Sky catchers

    GQIndia - Tue 25 Jun, 2013 2:14 PM IST

    Science says that at 18,000 feet the time of useful consciousness is 20 to 30 minutes. Essentially, prolonged exposure to this altitude will cause severe headaches, fatigue and extreme hypoxia. Or, as it is commonly known, turning blue and dying. And yet the army, our army, has managed to get past that hurdle and defend our borders in even higher territory. To do that, they’ve built roads that are even higher than the tallest Alps. And this effectively puts these destinations on top of our list of must-do motorcycle trips.    But it’s dangerous, no? Er… that’s really the point. ... More »Sky catchers

  • The Die Is Cast

    GQIndia - Wed 12 Jun, 2013 11:54 AM IST

    British-Pakistani actor Riz Ahmed, who plays protagonist Changez in Mira Nair's The Releuctant Fundamentalist has been on our radar since he played an inept jihadi in 2010’s dark comedy Four Lions. But his engagement with terrorism began with his 2006 song “Post 9/11 Blues” (key lyric: “Everybody do the post 9/11 dance / Look scared and shake ya arse while the bombs go blast”). Judging from his short – but rapidly growing – filmography, it might seem that a powerful force is controlling Ahmed’s future. He has another theory. ... More »The Die Is Cast
