  • The Road To Independence Is Paved With More Than Just Likes, Said Deeksha Gupta

    by Akshra Khandelwal The Road To Independence Is Paved With More Than Just Likes, Said Deeksha Gupta 4 September 2023 FASHION Advertisement Advertisement In the ever-evolving realm of social media, where the pursuit of authenticity and success often converge, a vibrant star emerges whose journey is as inspiring as it is genuine. Deeksha Gupta, the name that has been weaving its way into the digital tapestry, welcomed us into her world for a candid conversation about her rise as an influencer, the transformative power of collaborations, and the unwavering drive to stay true to oneself. With a refreshing blend of humility and ambition, Deeksha unveiled her story, reflecting on the rollercoaster of "almost" blooming days that shaped her path. From her humble beginnings with around 40,000 followers, she made it clear that her focus was always on authenticity. "I never want to do collaborations, and I like posting whatever I feel like that shows the real me," she often told her close circle. Yet, fate had its plans. A turning point emerged when Deeksha decided to leap of faith and say yes to her first brand collaboration. The outcome was beyond her expectations, as she pocketed a considerable 10,000 units of her chosen currency. The impact was profound – a newfound sense of independence and the pride of making her parents' hearts swell with joy ignited a relentless fire within her. As we sipped our chosen beverages, Deeksha playfully shared her signature style and described her as an ode to comfort with a hint of style. "It has to be a white top and dark blue denim or shorts. But let's not forget those essential cycling shorts – they're an absolute must. Comfort shouldn't compromise style," she quipped. Moving beyond the fashion realm, Deeksha invited us into her fitness journey. With a disciplined approach, she embraced a weekly "push, pull, & legs" routine, while her abs found their strength through a dedicated circuit routine. But it wasn't all about physical prowess; Deeksha's sanctuary lay in the moments of unwinding that marked her day's end. "I believe that the moments of unwinding are sacred," Deeksha shared with a smile that held the wisdom of experience. She detailed her cherished ritual with an almost poetic description – stepping into her room, shedding the layers of makeup, and engaging in heartfelt conversations with her confidantes over a call. "It's my favorite part of the day," she admitted, "a time when I can truly be myself and recharge." Deeksha's love for skincare emerged as a common thread during these serene moments. The diligent application of creams and serums was complemented by a central ritual that spoke volumes about her character – tidying her room. "It may sound 'small,' I guess," she mused, "but I find it essential. Going to bed with everything in order sets the tone for the next day." The conversation turned toward aspirations, and Deeksha's eyes lit up with a dream she had been nurturing. "I want to collaborate with Dyson," she confessed. The aim was more than just a product acquisition; it was a testament to her determination and vision of success. "I could buy it, sure," she acknowledged, "but there's something magical about collaborating with a brand that resonates with you." Deeksha's journey, marked by dedication and a desire to prove herself, has been punctuated by challenges and lessons. "I learned this the hard way," she reflected, "but giving up or losing heart is never an option." She cautioned against getting carried away by fleeting successes, urging fellow content creators to persist even when the metrics seem unfavourable. "Keep creating content regardless of the engagement. It'll always be you versus you," she affirmed. As our conversation drew close, Deeksha shared her vision for the future – driven by kindness and grounded in humility. "I look forward to being kinder and down-to-earth," she said, her eyes gleaming with resolve. "Making my loved ones proud is what fuels my spirit." In the realm of influencers, where facades can be as captivating as they are deceiving, Deeksha Gupta stands out as a beacon of authenticity. Her journey, shaped by triumphs and trials, is an inspiring reminder that success is not just about numbers but the relentless pursuit of one's passions. With her heart set on the horizon, Deeksha Gupta continues to carve her unique path, reminding us that the journey is as important as the destination and that staying true to oneself is the most potent influence.

  • The orientation of career in our country

    by Aparajita Jaiswal The orientation of career in our country 1 June 2021 SOCIETY Advertisement Advertisement Why does India wish to be a Two faction system? Doctors and engineers. Indian society as is known to most of us shows complete dominance over the personal choices of individuals such as career choice, mental health, marriage decision, what should be done or not, opinions and whatnot. The preliminary infusion of career choice in our country is only limited to two professions. Either be a doctor or become an engineer, only then can a person’s life commemorate a moment of success. Although, in this case, we cannot blame the older generation or our ancestors for instilling us with this faction system. If we go back three decades, we could see that there were no such pressures on children to choose out of such choices. The primary reason was that at that time the financial condition of most people used to be very mediocre. They could barely manage the education and livelihood of their family. Thus noble professions such as being a doctor or engineer were a luxury then. The people chose the profession according to the status of their family. So, this economic issue was one of the barriers in earlier times to go for their dream path. The other reason that crippled people from going towards their dream job is nepotism. The notion that children should follow their parents footpath. These issues still stay in society on the metaphorical level. The point here is to understand that even though society is adamant in pressurizing people to change their choices, initially it had some valid and credible reasons as given above. Nepotism is wrong but anyhow the career path is for betterment. The economic reason however is the fault of the other consequences. These two things, although unfair, seem credible. But the fact that only two professions in the whole herd of it can make life successful is so wrong. The two faction system came into existence a decade back where industrialization seemed to uplift the job scale of engineers. Whereas the recent developments in medical sciences lured students to help save some lives. In the initial phase, it was okay, but then students flooded in for enrolling. This created issues for institutions as they had limited numbers of seats. This prompted the creation of a competitive examination. Some time period went smoothly after this. But later on, there was this race to clear these competitive exams to get admissions, which still prevails to this very day. This created a new Industry for the economy, the industry of coaching classes. The situation is such in the country now that everyone only talks about these two exams which either lead to a career in the medical field or the technical field. This has led to the lynching of other careers. In case anyone doesn’t go ahead on these two so-called noble professions, then they are expected to pursue civil services. These are the frameworks that society has lined up for careers, anyone going beyond this threshold value is stupid according to society. The reason is so uncertain for those activities, was it because earlier times they couldn’t pursue medical or engineering, is it because you want your child to leave their dream to pursue something that would make it socially acceptable, is it because you want to keep your dominion over your child all their lives, the reason is unknown. But one thing is sure that those two professions are not your only choices. it also should be known that those two entrances also work at some places to get a better bachelors college. They are not just tickets to medical or engineering. This hidden thing no one knows. No one knows that our country’s research institute also invite people from higher secondary into a BS-MS program. Everyone just gets dejected and chooses a local college for bachelors, and even after that, this doesn’t end. There is no proper cycling up of information regarding plans, masters entrances, etc. This shows that as a country we are not providing our youth with enough information but subjecting them to a bundle of discretion. Many youtube channels have started speaking about this, but as a society, we need to break out of these two factions. We have to understand the happiness of our children, one can paint, write, talk or dance as a career there should not be any indulgence. Even if people go for other professions equal respect should be paid to everyone. It must be known that diversity is the only thing that holds fast throughout all time, a faction system fails when catastrophe comes from all sides. Thus, be aware and make everyone aware. You have the potential to become whatever you want.

  • Skincare: The Ultimate Morning Beauty Routine

    by Priti Sharma Skincare: The Ultimate Morning Beauty Routine 10 December 2022 FASHION Advertisement Advertisement The most crucial thing you can do for your complexion is to develop a solid skincare routine, according to any dermatologist (or finicky beauty editor). And while everyone knows they should remove their makeup and use a night cream before bed, their morning skincare procedures are frequently inadequate. Blame it on our love of the snooze button, but sometimes getting out of bed, putting on some BB cream, and rushing out the door is all we can manage (grabbing coffee on the way). Now stop making excuses! We've created the ideal morning skincare regimen, which consists of 10 steps and will give you gloriously bright skin. We're confident you'll notice benefits if you stick to this strategy for two weeks. Step one: Exercise Even though you may not want to hear it, morning exercise promotes good circulation by boosting blood flow AND lowering stress. Your complexion will have a healthy shine for the rest of the day if you can get your heart rate up. We adore quick, furious HIIT exercises like the one from Cassey Ho because they're the ideal way to work up a sweat and improve the appearance of our skin. Step two: Hydrate Drink two glasses of water instead of two cups of coffee first thing in the morning (you'll likely need them straight after your workout). Your whole health depends on drinking adequate water, and dehydration is most noticeable in your skin's dullness, dryness, and breakouts. Making sure you hydrate in the morning makes you feel lovely and sets you up for successful skin for the rest of the day. Step three: Cleanse In order to remove any leftover germs, grime, or makeup from the previous night, you must wash your face in the morning. We enjoy cleansing our face in the morning with a mild oil-based cleanser to avoid overdrying it. Use lukewarm water to rinse; really hot or cold water might dry up your skin. With a clean towel reserved ONLY for drying your face, pat dry. Step four: Exfoliate You can exfoliate your face without a piece of expensive equipment if you're interested in beauty secrets. A cotton washcloth exfoliates the face just enough without irritating the skin and is soft enough to use daily. Then, wring out the washcloth so that it is damp but not dripping, and rub your face in tiny circular motions, beginning at your nose and moving outward to your temples, forehead, and chin. The massage movement will assist reduce any morning face puffiness and sloughing off any dead skin cells. Never again, swollen face! Step five: Cleanse again It's time for more cleansing, you heard us. You don't want to leave any dead skin on your face after exfoliation, do you? Without a doubt. This time, apply a very mild cream cleanser and massage it in tiny circular motions before rinsing it off thoroughly with warm water. Take a moment to admire how clean your skin is as you pat your face dry once more with a fresh face cloth. Step six: Tone This step is particularly crucial if you have oily or acne-prone skin since toner will help balance your skin and prevent it from overproducing oils. You don't want your skin to get dry, regardless of the kind, so be sure to select an alcohol-free solution. To find components that are calming for the skin, look for products that contain chamomile, hibiscus extract, and vitamin E. Apply toner on a cotton ball and gently sweep it over your face and neck to use. Do not ever wash your face! Step seven: Serum Serums are significant, as many people frequently enquire. Using a good serum is the best approach to get bright, beautiful skin since serums have higher concentrations of active ingredients than moisturizers or cleansers do. There is a specific recipe for you whether you want to repair sun damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, or even brighten your skin tone. A crucial hint is that applying the serum is just as essential as using the right recipe. Apply two to three pumps into your palm and gently rub it (if necessary) to warm and combine it between your palms. Then, gently apply the serum over your face, going from the nose outward. Do not rub. This makes sure that all those healthy elements really work their way into the body rather than just being spread around. Continue with the following step after waiting three to five minutes for the serum to absorb completely. Step eight: SPF Never, ever forgo sunscreen, even if it's cloudy or you plan to spend most of the day indoors. Let's prevent that if we can because even minor sun damage now can result in wrinkles, sunspots, a poor complexion, and probable melanoma in the future. Find a product with an SPF of at least 15, and we like anything above 30. If you want to use a standard cream or spray-on sunscreen, you should apply it similarly to how you would a serum: spray or squirt some of the product into the palm of your hand, massage your hands together, then gently press the sunscreen onto your face and neck. Better still, if the moisturizer you favor has an integrated SPF. Gently massage it over your face (don't rub) and feel accomplished by combining two elements of your ideal skincare regimen. Don't forget, though, that UV damage isn't only a concern for your face. Apply SPF on the tops of your feet if you're wearing open shoes, your chest, the backs of your hands, your exposed legs, and your scalp, where your hair grows. Avoid burns today for beautiful skin tomorrow! Step nine: Moisturize You've already accomplished this if you used a moisturizer with SPF; congrats! A mild moisturizer is mostly for daytime usage for everyone else. It prevents your skin from drying out during the day and helps it seem attractive and dewy beneath your makeup. Smooth your moisturizer over your face, neck, and chest, being careful to pat it on rather than rubbing it on the sensitive area around your eyes. Step ten: Primer The last stage! Primer is crucial since it not only hides fine lines and fills up pores, but also offers a flawless foundation for the rest of your makeup. Some primers even have skincare components integrated into them so you may enhance your complexion while ensuring the longevity of your foundation. Primers are frequently silicone-based; if you have silicone sensitivity, do your research to be sure the product you choose won't cause you to break out. Think of a pea-sized quantity of primer as being sufficient for most applications. Apply the primer to your skin (including your eyelids) with your two index fingers, paying additional attention to any very uneven areas. Allow two to three minutes for it to set, and then voila! You’re ready to apply your makeup, and your skin is ready to face the day. #Fashion #Skincare #MorningRoutine #Beauty #Skin #Makeup #Primer #Moisturize #SPF SEARCH The Rich Heritage of Indian Handloom FASHION Fashion In The 19th Century FASHION Colour Psychology in Fashion: Explained FASHION The Influence Of Kanye West On Fashion FASHION K-Pop Fashion And Its Impact On Global Wardrobe FASHION POPULAR POSTS Advertisement Advertisement By Anushka Sharma These Fashion Trends Are Literally Scary For Your Health 1 April 2024 FASHION By Anushka Sharma India Is Finally Having A Major Fashion Moment 23 March 2024 FASHION By Anushka Sharma Fashion Trends: What's Hot In 2024 22 March 2024 FASHION By Anushka Sharma Is Africa The Next World Leader In Fashion 20 March 2024 FASHION RELATED POSTS

  • Gunja's Inspiring Transition From The Cubicles Into The Realm Of Beauty

    by Akshra Khandelwal Gunja's Inspiring Transition From The Cubicles Into The Realm Of Beauty 31 August 2023 FASHION Advertisement Advertisement One name stands out in digital artistry and creative expression like a radiant star - Gunja. With a charismatic smile that echoes her vibrant energy, Gunja has captured the hearts of many with her awe-inspiring content and impeccable talent. As we sat down for an exclusive interview with the influencer, the candid conversation revealed the essence of her journey, her inspirations, and the secrets behind her undeniable success. "I'm great. Been working on a bunch of exciting campaigns currently and feeling super grateful," Gunja exclaims with an infectious enthusiasm that mirrors her online persona. The gleam in her eyes tells a story of dedication and devotion to her craft. Gunja's day unfolds like a perfectly scripted routine, a glimpse into the life of Gunja - her real name. "So I start my day with affirmations, gratitude & exercises, followed by breakfast. I then follow up on emails & head to my studio for shoots. By evening I come back & then have dinner, edit a few videos & then sleep," she narrates, revealing a well-structured rhythm that fuels her creativity. Her journey as an influencer has been nothing short of a rollercoaster ride, packed with twists, turns, and leaps of faith. "My journey has definitely been a rollercoaster. I started my page in November 2019 after quitting my high-paying job as I wanted to pursue my passion, beauty. Initially, I was creating videos for fun until it started picking up & eventually, my hard work paid off, leading to me grabbing multiple brand collaborations & now I'm here fulfilling my dreams one by one," Gunja shares, her eyes sparkling with the memories of her transformation. Among the gems in her crown of content creation are the mesmerising recreations that have captivated her audience's hearts. "As a teenager, I was always fascinated with the makeup of Bollywood celebrities. I always wanted to look like my favourite actress. Then when I started experimenting with makeup, it boosted my confidence to recreate some celebrity-inspired makeup looks, and the kind of love my audience shows for it is impeccable," she explains, revealing the genesis of her creative series that marries art with admiration. Gunja's playlist holds a melody that resonates deep within her soul. "Who Says" by Selena Gomez is a song she always finds herself returning to. "The lyrics uplift my mood. The song is all about self-confidence & how you shouldn't let anyone else define your worth and know who you actually are," she articulates, her voice carrying the weight of the song's empowering message. The delicate art of balance is a skill that Gunja has perfected. "It's simple. By not rushing & stressing over. Also, by setting blocks of time for each task & practising mindfulness," she states, a glimpse into the poise that underlies her creative chaos. For aspiring creators who seek to follow in her footsteps, Gunja has a golden nugget of advice. "Be patient, consistent & moreover, believe in yourself and don't give up," she imparts, words that echo like a mantra for those treading the path of dreams. But Gunja's message to the world transcends the digital canvas and touches the heart of the human experience. "Pay attention to your thoughts, think outside the box, find peace within yourself & have a generous heart," she concludes, her words a testament to the profound wisdom she has gained on her journey. As our conversation draws to a close, it's evident that Gunja is more than an influencer; she is a beacon of inspiration, a symbol of resilience, and a testament to the power of pursuing one's passions. Peppered with challenges and triumphs, her journey is a testament that every creation is a canvas for the soul's expression. In the world of pixels and algorithms, Gunja shines as a reminder that behind every profile is a tapestry of dreams waiting to be woven into reality.

  • Books and Beyond with Bound and Tara Khandelwal, founder of Bound

    by Aparajita Jaiswal Books and Beyond with Bound and Tara Khandelwal, founder of Bound 5 July 2022 COVER STORIES Advertisement Advertisement While pursuing her passion for books, in a freewheel chat with Aparajita Jaiswal, Tara Khandelwal shares her journey in building Bound from scratch through podcasts with famous authors on “Books and Beyond with Bound.” An ambition young woman with much to bring to the world, Tara Khandelwal has created a world of proximity between writers, readers and authors, leading to a sanctuary for the literary arts. Bookworm, Tara Khandelwal, an editor and writer, is a graduate of Barnard College, Columbia University and the Columbia Publishing Course. She has worked with organizations like Penguin, BloombergQuint and SheThePeople.TV . Although, her most prized achievement is as a founder of Bound which provides skill building for creativity through writers’ retreats, workshops, writing coaching and editorial services. Tara, alongside her co-founder, Michelle D’costa, has created a podcast called ‘Books and Beyond with Bound’. On this podcast, the ambitious and perspicacious Tara Khandelwal and Michelle D’costa speak to India’s most profound contemporary writers like Manu Pillai, Lisa Ray, Avni Doshi and more, providing voracious readers insights into their favourite authors’ lives. Across international waters, many countries provide various resources for aspiring writers like writing retreats, writing courses, coaching and many more. Tara envisioned something similar and brought it home to India and created similar resources through Bound. “There was an emerging literary culture and people interested in the art of literature but education for the literary arts was international so I decided to plug that cap and started my journey through writer’s retreats, one of the first in India. This was to provide aspiring writers with quality and affordable education.” Her motive was to bridge the gap between readers and their favorite authors and also to provide authors with a platform to engage in teaching what they have procured from this field. After a couple of retreats, bound took to also teaching in various cities like Mumbai and Pune, online and in-person. They teach creative writing for fiction and poetry through meditative writing, screenwriting and various others, their mandate being skill building for creatives. To that end, Bound also provides editorial and mentoring services, enabling authors and writers to work on their projects on a one on one basis. The podcasts, books and beyond with bound, is an attempt to bring readers and writers closer to the authors they love and admire. “It was a dream project for us,” she says. They are almost done with their first season and are definitely going to begin recording their second season. “I wish there were more readers for all the writers out there. That’s one thing I’d like to change about the world.” Tara Khandelwal “Every author that I have worked with I admire for their strong and stellar work ethic.” When asked if as a kid she admired a particular author that encouraged her to pursue a career in this field Tara immediately replied with Enid Blyton. “I was four or five when I first started reading and I started with Enid Blyton. I remember being mind blown when I read my first book, The Secret Island. I didn’t understand the joy of reading at that age but I kept reading and reading from there on forward.” “Every part of my job is challenging but equally fulfilling but the most challenging part is innovating and finding new ways to grow.” Tara says that finding new ways to grow and starting new projects is always challenging but also scary as you never know what is going to happen. “Keeping up motivation is challenging,” she says. “I perceive success as hard work and pushing oneself out of their comfort zone. It is when you know you’re not being complacent and always striving for the next step. For me success would be setting new goals and working to achieve it and having a mentality to achieve resilience.” Tara Khandelwal Besides writing Tara also enjoys yoga as she likes to work out and keep fit and healthy. She also enjoys learning various things. In her free time she does classes and learns about new things and passing her time reading. When asked if she would ever write a book of her own after working to edit other authors’ work she says, “Never say never as never is not in my vocab.” So here’s hoping she does write a book with her profound skill set. Tara Khandelwal has also worked as an editor for Writers’ Side, the biggest literary agency in India, Hachette, Rupa and UK-based Eyewear Publishing, among many others all together. #TaraTaraKhandelwalBooksBooksandbeyondBoundWritersReadersAuthorsLiterary SEARCH Karishma Kotak Playing Her Innings In Fashion, Sports And Fitness COVER STORIES Musings With Maryam Zolghadr COVER STORIES Madhura Naik talks about the Life of an Actress COVER STORIES Kavya Thapar And Her Versatile Acting Career That Cuts Across Regional Lines COVER STORIES Ahsaas Channa Talks About Her Mother Being The Inspiration Behind Her Career COVER STORIES POPULAR POSTS Advertisement By Anushka Sharma Dialogues That Never Disappoint With Actor Saqib Ayub 4 April 2024 COVER STORIES by Anjali Educate, Empower, Excel: Priyanka Chahar Choudhary's Inspirational Overture 15 November 2023 COVER STORIES by Akshra Khandelwal Purab Kohli’s Cinematic Expedition Through Films, Travel And Self-Expression 22 September 2023 COVER STORIES by Aparajita Jaiswal Exploring The Path Of Aspiring Actors And Producers: Insights From Anil Singh Chandel 6 September 2023 COVER STORIES RELATED POSTS Advertisement

  • Winter – Take Care

    by Akash Khatri Winter – Take Care 9 January 2021 FASHION Advertisement Advertisement The chilly season is back and now is the time to take extra care of your skin. Lack of nourishment can lead to dull, pale and dry skin. Winter weather affects all skin types. Some basics to keep your skin radiant and glowing: MOISTURISE Keep your skin hydrated! The cold winter air pulls moisture from your skin leaving it dry and itchy. Protect the natural oils by using a ceramide-rich cream. Try moisturizers with added vitamin C or vitamin E. For added protection, slip on socks or gloves to help the cream soak in better. A thermostat might suck in the hydration causing dry air which is bad for your skin, use a humidifier to add the moisture back. Hydrate We tend to not feel much thirsty during the cold but our body loses water in so many ways. Keep your body stocked with fluids to avoid the dullness. Health experts recommend drinking at least half a gallon a day. Sweater itch Winter skin is fragile, avoid materials that tend to irritate you as they may result in rashes. If you feel itchy, wear a cotton t-shirt underneath or use softer materials such as cashmere or fleece. Prefer lighter fabrics to synthetic ones. Use lukewarm water Hot water leaves our skin dry and flaky as it washes away the natural hydrating oils. Use lukewarm water, it helps loosen the dirt and also avoids the irritation. Try cutting down on shower time and temperature too, avoid the long hot tempting showers. Change your skincare A light moisturizing lotion might have been sufficient during the sunny summer days but it won’t do any good in the harsh winters. Use heavy rich creams with ingredients such as botanical oil, hyaluronic acid, glycerine, niacinamide and bakuchiol . Though the warm winter sun feels good but the UV rays are still harmful, use a good SPF sunscreen with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Avoid products that contain alcohol as they make your skin dry. Try overnight masks. Layer using a toner, serum and facial oils such as virgin coconut oil or grapeseed oil.

I was growing 20k-30k every day on Instagram. Before this, I didn’t even know content creation is a “scene” and people can do all this. I think very few people like Ashish in India had started it. Adding to this, Barkha gives us details about her inspiration to start her YouTube channel, “Because my followers started growing, the people managing me at that time, they made me realise like that since I travel so much and anyways shooting travel content, I can just upload it in one place on the YouTube channel and I was very much against starting a YouTube channel thinking I won’t be able do all of it (auditions, shooting, Instagram and YouTube and they were like, shut up and do it. As I started uploading more and more content, many tourists and boards of different countries started reaching out to me to create content on my YouTube channel. After that, I got great views you know so that’s when I decided this was the best way to make my love for travel sustainable.” When asked what she looks for in a new project before signing yes to it, Barkha reveals that other than the standard considerations regarding production and platform, the storyline and character offered to her plays an extremely important role. Barkha has had the opportunity to work alongside Sushmita Sen and claims and claims she had a wonderful experience. While contributing to wildlife and nature are some of her alternate interests, Barkha digs deeper by expressing the challenges one faces in the show industry. “I think, at least for me the most challenging part is showing restraint. A lot of people say it’s very important to select the right project. So, that is most challenging because as an actor you’re tempted to do every project that comes your way . Having the ability to pick and choose your projects is something that I feel is very challenging because every character requires a different dialect and a whole lot of work. I never bring up long hours, travel, staying away or not having weekends as challenges because all of that comes as part and parcel of being an actor. However, I think having to choose between projects and having gauze which one is good for you is most challenging thing according to me.” An eye catcher in this interview is the revelation of some of Barkha’s cherished and note-worthy accomplishments such as being a 12th board exam merit list holder and topping Maharashtra, raising awareness, and educating people for animal welfare, having the courage to make a shift into the web space and maintaining a healthy body lifestyle in terms of meditation, yoga and a fitness regime. Concluding the interview, Barkha also told us about some of her future goals and projects “One project that has already been announced by Jio Studios is The Great Wedding of Munnes which will release later this year. I am very excited about it. The entire look of the character I am playing is very interesting. It is like nothing anyone has ever seen me before in.” Booming with positive energy and quirkiness, Barkha Singh ends the interview with a heart-warming message for her fans- “YOLO. Everyone should really believe in living in the present moment. There is no point in spending time over-thinking. If you want to do something, do it now, don’t waste time procrastinating. If you feel like doing something, trust your gut and go for it!” SEARCH Karishma Kotak Playing Her Innings In Fashion, Sports And Fitness COVER STORIES Musings With Maryam Zolghadr COVER STORIES Madhura Naik talks about the Life of an Actress COVER STORIES Kavya Thapar And Her Versatile Acting Career That Cuts Across Regional Lines COVER STORIES Ahsaas Channa Talks About Her Mother Being The Inspiration Behind Her Career COVER STORIES POPULAR POSTS Advertisement By Anushka Sharma Dialogues That Never Disappoint With Actor Saqib Ayub 4 April 2024 COVER STORIES by Anjali Educate, Empower, Excel: Priyanka Chahar Choudhary's Inspirational Overture 15 November 2023 COVER STORIES by Akshra Khandelwal Purab Kohli’s Cinematic Expedition Through Films, Travel And Self-Expression 22 September 2023 COVER STORIES by Aparajita Jaiswal Exploring The Path Of Aspiring Actors And Producers: Insights From Anil Singh Chandel 6 September 2023 COVER STORIES RELATED POSTS Advertisement

  • 5 by 5 Rule

    by Akash Khatri 5 by 5 Rule 1 November 2020 LIFESTYLE Advertisement A very close friend introduced me to this coincidentally 5 years back after I had been ranting about my messy day. Since then life has been a bit simpler, it goes like, “If it’s not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes upset by it.” It didn’t make sense to me the first time too. Sounds pretty simple on paper I know, it’s difficult in reality. You won’t get used to it overnight, it will surely take a while but I promise once you do, things just seem to sort themselves. Things fall apart, they always do. I think it’s the basic law of human living. You will have challenges, changes and trials. It’s a part and parcel of a game called life. You need to accept the ugly bitter pills just like the sweet candies. It’s just the way it is supposed to be maybe. It can’t be flowers and rainbows all the way. There might be days with a little blood, tears and sweat too but it will all be worth it in the end. Sometimes decision fatigue gets overwhelming. When you can’t really think what to do, whether to keep thinking about something or not. At such times the 5 by 5 rule comes to the rescue. You can’t care about everything and anything; you have to choose what to care about. The only way to filter is this. It is highly effective in the long run and this is me talking from personal experience, tried and tested. It can be applied from the tiniest snarky comment someone passed on your dress to your workplace issues. Whenever in doubt, just ask yourself once “will it matter in the next five years?” if yes, work on it, find a solution, leave no stone unturned for it but if you get an answer in the negative, drop it right there. You will soon realize that what anyone else thinks about the colour of your dress or your new hairstyle or your handwriting won’t ever matter, they won’t even remember it after a week or so but you somewhere it might leave a mark on your heart and you would continue pondering over their nasty remarks. My heart always got the better of my brain while making decisions, it’s not bad but equilibrium is necessary. This rule helped me get a perspective around issues. Those gigantic dilemmas weren’t that bad. I realized a lot of issues had very simple solutions. You just had to know the trick to handle. Neil Armstrong once said, “I believe that every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don’t intend to waste any of mine.” We all have limited time. We have to make our choices, they might not always be wise but mistakes are the greatest teachers. This has become my life’s litmus test. It saved me from a lot of futile thinking; I hope it helps you declutter too. #wise #test #accept #limited #dilemma #rule #Reality #decision #issue #finite #litmus #help #Life #sense #time #sort #fivebyfive #thinking #save #overwhelming #simpler #equilibrium SEARCH Countdown To History: Omega Unveils Paris 2024 Olympics Countdown Clock And Special Edition Timepiece LIFESTYLE Juggling Law And Fashion: The Inspirational Journey Of Riddhi Nahata, A Multifaceted Influencer LIFESTYLE Join Shruti Yogi On Her Enchanting Journey From Kumkum Bhagya To Wanderlust Saga LIFESTYLE Personal Growth And Relatability: Ishita Khanna's Key To Influencer Success LIFESTYLE 6 Disadvantages Of Being Pretty LIFESTYLE POPULAR POSTS Advertisement Advertisement By Anushka Sharma Kate Middleton’s Story Has Only Gotten Worse With Time 18 March 2024 LIFESTYLE By Rini Pathak The Skill Of Ageing Gracefully: Secrets From The Land Of Longevity 17 March 2024 LIFESTYLE By Anushka Sharma The USA Is Almost Giving Up On TikTok, And Here Is Why 15 March 2024 LIFESTYLE By Anushka Sharma The Curious Case Of The Body Shop 14 March 2024 LIFESTYLE RELATED POSTS Advertisement
