Interview with CNC3 Business line
Our very own, Dhisha Moorjani did an interview on CNC3 Business Line. Find out how her father inspired her business, how fashion is her love and what the future holds for House of Jaipur.
The Magic of Moorjani
The majestic city of Jaipur is the capital of the state of Rajasthan, India. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, after whom it was named, founded it in 1727, and Conde Nast calls it “India’s capital of adornment, where there are gems the size of eggs and silks in hues of unimaginable hotness.”
Some of us may never get the opportunity to see this city’s exotic beauty in person, but we can certainly find some of its treasures right here in Trinidad at the House of Jaipur, Dhisha Moorjani’s labour of love for the homeland of her parents. Dhisha opened her store 10 years ago, after selling out of her living room for two years prior, but her love of Jaipur was instilled in her since early childhood by her parents.

Wand luncheon at Hyatt
By ANGELA PIDDUCK Saturday, November 24 2012
As usual, a large crowd of mostly women attended the annual pre-Christmas fundraising luncheon hosted by the Women in Action for the Needy and Destitute (WAND), at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom, last week Friday.
The festive season had started as could be seen by the beautiful "Christmasy" centerpieces on the white table cloths, and a lunch menu including honey glazed ham, stewed pigeon peas and pastelles. But I truly liked the seared fish with passion fruit beurre blanc. The "Okro Rice" was different and enjoyable. Chocolate Midnight Gateau and Warm Apple Crumble with Vanilla Bean Sauce were my dessert choices.
