Slotted as a socio-political thriller, ‘The Temple Bar Woman,’ is a story of a simple village school teacher, Radha who vows to avenge herself against the man who destroyed her life. Fraught with danger, daring and deceit, this racy novel recounts a tale of love, loss, and loyalty in lives that are curiously entwined with one another while making an attempt to open the floor for a bold discussion on rape and sexual – violence.

SodaBottleOpenerWala by the Olive group is a concept that is unique to India. It is your quintessential Bombay Irani Café and bar with all its idiosyncrasies in place and brings forth the dying legacy of the wonderful, bustling, colorful, quirky, cluttered, eccentric and so real world of an Irani café. It serves Parsi cuisine, food gems that sparkle on the streets of Bombay and old-world clubs.
The design of SodaBottleOpenerWala is old world, colonial and humorous. It is our take on the Parsi-style Freddie Mercury meets Monty Python. The eccentricity and mirth evokes spontaneous laughter over the signature large blackboard touting the ‘Rules of the establishment’ like No Laughing Loudly. No Talking to Cashier. No feet on chair. No flirting. No Pata Hai Main Kaun Hoon. And is a constant feature in all the SodaBottleOpenerWala properties.
SodaBottleOpenerWala has eight outlets in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
