ROYAL SALUTE CELEBRATES ROYAL FEASTS WITH NEW ARTISTIC GIFT PACK Inspired by ‘The Field of the Cloth of Gold’; imagined by British illustrator Tom Lane


Bangalore. 12th October 2016: Royal Salute, the exceptionally crafted and aged Scotch whisky, has unveiled the first in a new range of limited edition gift packs that bring to life the unique heritage and rituals which were there to celebrate unity and peace between the British and French crowns in 1520. The pack that has been launched in October 2016 contains a bottle of Royal Salute 21 Year Old and, under the guidance of British designer Tom Lane, illustrates the feast of the Field of the Cloth of Gold.

Raja Banerji, Assistant Vice President, Marketing, Pernod Ricard India, said: Royal Salute is a brand that exudes refined luxury and rich traditions. The Royal Salute limited edition festive pack has been handcrafted to artistically present the splendid legacy of Royal Salute which is appreciated by the connoisseurs of the modern world. The unique design element of this pack in the form of “The Field of the Cloth of Gold” is an expression of the sheer prestige which is meant for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

Tom Lane is one of Britain’s foremost calligraphy artists and illustrators, with over a decade of experience in the industry. His work is instantly recognisable, encompassing intricate pack designs and playful typographic posters. Tom took inspiration from the rich awnings at the site of a historic meeting held in 1520 between the kings of England and France. The royal feast is still remembered for the rich gifts and temporary palaces that were built of such glittering wealth that the site was dubbed ‘the field of the cloth of gold’.

Royal Salute’s signature whisky – Royal Salute 21 Year Old – is held within the gift pack, alongside a fine crystal glass which further adds to its Ultimacy.  Created to celebrate the 21-gun salute – a tradition of firing guns for special royal occassions – the product combines rare malt and grain whiskies aged for a minimum of 21 years, giving connoisseurs a complex and sophisticated drinking experience.

Tom Lane said of the collaboration: “The visual history of the British royal family is a superbly rich hoard, from which it was a joy to seek inspiration for Royal Salute’s new limited edition gift pack. The Royal Salute partnership was an extremely rewarding project, giving me complete creative freedom and allowing me to produce a design which I’m proud to see all over the world.”

Peter Moore, Prestige Brand Director at Chivas Brothers, commented: “The new Royal Salute festive gift pack continues our brand’s celebration of the British culture and heritage, whose values have been intrinsic to Royal Salute since its foundation in 1953. The new series will give collectors the opportunity to enjoy our shared heritage, through an exploration of historic royal banquets, of which The Field of the Cloth of Gold is surely the most renowned.”

Price in Delhi – MRP 14,900

Panchkula Gets its Largest Hospital: Paras Healthcare Group Launches First 220 Bedded Super Specialty Hospital in the City

Panchkula, Oct 13th, 2016: Paras Healthcare, one of the country’s leading healthcare providers, today announced plans to launch the first 220 bedded super specialty hospital in the city, aimed at providing highly specialized tertiary care to patients from Panchkula and adjoining towns and cities.

This hospital will be the second healthcare facility launched in Panckhula by Paras Group, after Paras Bliss which is providing specialized mother and child care to the residents of the city. 

Expected to commence operations within a year, this will be the first hospital in Panchkula to provide latest and most comprehensive cancer care facilities including medical, surgical, radiation and nuclear medicine services.

The launch is yet another step by Paras Healthcare to expand its presence in tier II cities across the country to fill the void of quality tertiary care. Apart from Panchkula, Paras Healthcare already runs hospitals in New Delhi, Gurgaon, Patna and Darbhanga.

The hospital has been conceived with an objective of providing world class tertiary care to people from Panchkula, Shimla, Kalka and other adjoining towns and cities who currently have to travel all the way to Mohali to seek specialized medical facilities.

“This will be the largest hospital in Panchkula so far as far as the number of beds is concerned. Not only will this facility be big as far as the size and number of patients catered to is concerned, but it will also be one of the most advanced healthcare providers in the city. With this new facility in Panchukula, we hope to make quality healthcare more accessible in this part of the country so that people do not need to travel to Mohali and New Delhi for quality treatment,” said Dr Dharminder Nagar, Managing Director, Paras Healthcare.

“With most super specialty tertiary care providers located in metropolitan cities, residents of smaller centers across the country have to travel large distances to seek specialized and quality medical care. This is difficult and traumatizing especially when the treatment requires long hospital stays for the patient suffering from diseases such as cancer or renal failure. At Paras Healthcare, we are striving hard to fill this gap by focusing on expanding our presence in tier 2 cities of the country so that people can avail of best treatment near their homes,” said Dr Kapil Garg, Director Business Strategy & Intelligence – Paras Healthcare.

According to Mr Anil Sehgal and Mr Rajiv Jain, “We chose Paras Healthcare as partners in launching an exceptional healthcare facility for Panchkula due to their different approach. Their unique positioning believes in empowering the common man with affordable, accessible and quality healthcare. They are healthcare providers that are passionate about bridging the gaps and making a difference to Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. We are fortunate to find people who believe in our dream – of making Panchkula one of the best and modern cities in North India.” 

Paras Hospital, Panchkula will focus on a range of specialties including Cardiac Sciences (Cardithoracic and Vascular Surgery and Cath Lab Services), Neurosciences (Neurology and Neurosurgery), Orthopedics and Joint Replacement, and Trauma.

“Our country has seen an alarming rise in major lifestyle diseases like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension etc. This surge is not limited to metro cities or urban centres, but has also penetrated smaller towns and rural areas which were hitherto considered less affected by lifestyle disorders. At the same time there is severe dearth of quality trauma care in our country, and establishing a highly equipped trauma centre is a major objective for this hospital,” said Dr Dharminder Nagar.

The hospital, slated to come up near IT Park, will also compliment the services of Paras Bliss, Panchkula, the already existing mother and child care hospital located at a distance of 5 kms.
