टीवी पर मानसी पारेख की वापसी

प्रेमबाबू शर्मा

इंडिया काॅलिंग और स्टार प्लस शो ‘गुलाल’ शोहरत हासिल करने वाली मानसी पारिख अब स्टार प्लस शो ‘सुमित संभाल लेगा’ से एक बार फिर से टीवी पर डेब्यू कर रही है। शो में वह सुमित की पत्नी की भूमिका में हैं, 31 अगस्त सोमवार शुरू होने वाले इस शो में आज के समय में मां और पत्नी के बीच झूल रहे एक शादीशुदा इंसान की हालत बयान की गयी है।

इंडिया काॅलिंग से शोहरत हासिल करने वाली मानसी को इसके बाद स्टार प्लस के प्राइम टाइम शो गुलाल में महत्वपूर्ण किरदार निभाते देखा गया। पूरी दुनिया में मशहूर सिटकाॅम एवरीबडी लव्स रेमण्ड का भारतीय संस्करण सुमित संभाल लेगा टेलिविजन के परदे पर उनकी शानदार वापसी है।

शो का प्रमुख हिस्सा मानसी माया वालिया का मजबूत और स्वतंत्र महिला का किरदार निभाएंगीं जिसकी शादी शो के मुख्य किरदार सुमित वालिया से हुई है, जिसकी भूमिका अभिनेता नमित दास निभा रहे हैं। मानसी का किरदार माया आज की महिला है और टीवी के उन आम गृहिणियों के किरदार की तरह नहीं है जिन्हें पता ही नहीं है कि बाहर की दुनिया में क्या हो रहा है।

मानसी ने बताया, ‘‘सुमित संभाल लेगा टेलिविजन पर वापसी के लिये बहुत सही चुनाव है क्योंकि मैं कुछ अलग करना चाहती थी। मुझे ‘हर मर्द को दर्द’ वाला कांसेप्ट बहुत अच्छा लगा और मुझे लगता है आज यह हर किसी की कहानी है। मैं और नमित एक दूसरे को काॅलेज के दिनों से ही बहुत समझते हैं और हमारी दोस्ती ने हमारे आॅनस्क्रीन केमिस्ट्री को मजबूत किया है। मुझे खुशी है कि मैं इतने प्रतिभाशाली कलाकारों के साथ काम कर रही हूं और सबसे अच्छी बात यह है कि कैमरा बंद होने के बाद भी यहां हंसी का तूफान चलता रहता है।’’

खेलों में रूचि लेने से देश की जनता स्वस्थ होगी और सम्पूर्ण भारत खुशहाल हो जायेगा



वर्ष २०१० में भारत में आयोजित कोमेंवेल्थ खेलों मैडल का शतक यानि 101 मैडल हासिल करने के बाद हाल ही में संपन्न ग्लासगो कोमेंवेल्थ खेलों मैडल लिस्ट में मात्र 64 पदक जीतकर छाती ठोक रहे हैं. भारत क्रिकेट के आलावा किसी भी खेल अथवा खेल आयोजनों विशेषकर एशियाई व ओलंपिक या अंतरार्ष्ट्रीय प्रतियोगिताओं में एक स्वर्ण,रजत व् कांस्य पदक तक हासिल नहीं कर पाता है. अरे भाई जरा तो सोचो सभी राष्ट्र खेलों की दुनिया युद्धस्तर पर तरक्की कर रहे हैं. हम यूरोपियन राष्ट्र के आलावा पडोसी एशियाई देशों प्रमुख रूप से दक्षिणी कोरिया, चीन, जापान आदि ने खेलों में जितने तेज रफ़्तार से विकास किया उनसे शायद कुछ सीखना ही नहीं चाहते हैं.

जो देश एक गरीब को रोजी, रोटी व झोपडी देने में सक्षम नहीं वो खेल को क्या बढ़ावा दे पायेगा .लोग इस देश दो जून की रोटी नहीं जुटा पाते है वे खाली पेट चल नहीं सकते खेलने की बात तो दूर की है.और तो और क्रिकेट के आलावा कितने अंतरार्ष्ट्रीय खिलाडी सन्यास लेने के बाद छोटे मोटे इलाज तक के लिए राशि नहीं जुटा पते हैं. जब तक खेलों व् खिलाडियों के लिए जनमानस में आदर नहीं होगा खेलों के लिए कारगर नीतियाँ बनाने के साथ-साथ उन्हें मैदान लागु नहीं किया जायेगा और इस निति निर्धारण में सभी उम्रवर्ग के खिलाडियों की भागीदारी जैसे उपयोगी उपायों को तुरंत लागु नहीं किया जायेगा तो कोई भी इस बीमार लकवाग्रस्त राष्ट्र का खेलों में विकास हो ही नहीं सकता है. उससे भी बड़ा गंभीर विषय यह है कि पूरा देश राजनितिक तिकड़म, घनी आबादी, बेरोजगार भ्रष्टाचार, बलात्कार, घोटालों, भाषा,क्षेत्रवाद, जातिवाद, धार्मिक कट्टरता, एक दुसरे की टांग खिचाई आदि में लिप्त है.

यहाँ नकारत्मक सोच वाले आकाओं के नाम का डंका बजता है सकारात्मक सोच रखने वाले कुछ लोग यदि इस ओर अगर प्रयास भी करें तो उसे बढ़ावा नहीं दिया जाता बल्कि अपनी महत्तवता कायम रखने के लिए नाकारा जाता है या भुला दिया जाता है. परन्तु यदि हमें इस राष्ट्र में खेलों का विकास करना है तो राष्ट्रीय स्तर पर एक ही जैसी खेल विकास निति तय करनी होगी. इसके तहत सबसे पहले हमें जड़ से प्रयास करने होंगे जिसमे अभिभावकों, शारीरिक शिक्षकों, खेल कोचों, स्कुल, कालेज तथा गली-मोहल्लों को एक सामूहिक अभियान की तरह लेकर शुरुआत करनी होगी. खेल व् खेल के सम्पूर्ण विकास के लिए सकारत्मक मानसिकता के साथ-साथ समय समय पर नियमित खेल प्रतियोगितायों का आयोजन तथा प्रतिभावान खिलाडियों को प्रोत्साहन व् उम्दा खेल के मैदान, नवीनतम खेल तकनीक/प्रणाली, उम्दा कोच, नियमित शारीरिक कसरत, पोष्टिक खुराक, राष्ट्रीय व् अंतरार्ष्ट्रीय खिलाडियों से वर्ष में एक डॉ बार मिलने (अनुभव साझा करने का मौका मुहैया कराना होगा. इन नवोदित युवा प्रतिभाशाली खिलाडियों शारीरिक मजबूती के अलावा मानसिक मजबूती का टोनिक भी देने की व्यवस्था करनी होगी. सभी सरकारी एवं निजी कार्य स्थलों पर भी दिन में मात्र आधा घंटा ही सही शारीरिक खेल कसरत करवाने के लिए अनिवार्य दिनचर्या में लागु करना होगा इसके सुखद परिणाम मिलेंगे जिस कर्मी का स्वास्थ्य अच्छा होगा वह मानसिक कार्यों को अधि कुशलता से करने में तो सहायक होगा ही बल्कि छोटी मोटी बिमारियों से भी बचा रहेगा. साथ ही अपनी युवा पीढ़ी को भी खेलों में रूचि लेने अथवा प्रेरित व् प्रोत्साहित करने में भी सहायक साबित होगा. एक बात स्पष्ट है खिलाडी अथवा खेल प्रेमी अन्य आम आदमी की अपेक्षा शारीरिक और मानसिक रूप से अधिक मजबूत होते हैं और वे जीवन में विपरीत परीस्थितियों में भी डटकर सामना करने में सक्षम होते हैं. आज भारत वर्ष को ऐसे ही मजबूत देशवासियों की जरुरत है तभी हम खेलों सहित अन्य क्षेत्रों में सफल होंगे. देश फिर से सोने की चिड़िया हो जायेग तथा डॉ इक़बाल के बोल “सारे जहाँ से अच्छा हिन्दोस्तां हमारा, हम बुलबुले है इसके ये गुलसितां हमारा “ गूंजने लगेगा.

इन तमाम उपायों के रहते यदि अगले पांच वर्षों में भारत देश वर्ष में भी सवा करोड़ की घनी आबादी में से हमें काम से एक हजार खिलाडी तो जरुर जुटा लेंगे जो गौरवशाली तिरंगे को विश्व पटल पर गर्व से अपने मजबूत हाथों में थामने के साथ ही साथ भारतवर्ष का नाम खेल दुनिया में भी रोशन करने में जरुर कामयाब होंगे. और पोडियम पर मैडल लेते ही गर्व से राष्ट्र गान “जन गण मन” का उद्घोष सुनकर पूरा भारत देश ख़ुशी से झूम उठेगा

First-aid measures against snakebites

India is estimated to have the highest snakebite mortality in the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates place the number of bites to be 83,000 per annum with 11,000 deaths. Most of the fatalities occur due to the victim not reaching the hospital in time where definite treatment can be administered.

There are about 236 species of snakes in India, most of which are nonpoisonous. Most people remain under the misconception that all snakes are dangerous; however, this is not the case. Bites from nonpoisonous snakes, apart from causing a panic reaction and local injury, do not harm the patient.

There are 13 known species that are poisonous; of these, four, namely common cobra (Naja naja), Russell’s viper (Dabiola russelii), saw-scaled viper (Echis carinatus) and common krait (Bungarus caeruleus) are highly venomous and believed to be responsible for most of the poisonous deaths in India.

Speaking about this, Padma Shri Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India & Honorary Secretary General Indian Medical Association said, “One must always remember the basic first aid measures against snake bites. Timely action and treatment can completely eliminate mortality rates. One must also remember that not all snake bites are poisonous and unnecessary panic must be avoided. Initial first aid is directed at reducing the spread of venom and expediting transfer to an appropriate medical center.”

One must remember to:
*Remove the patient from the snake's territory and help them stay calm and as still as possible.
*Attempt to identify the snake only if it is safe for the patient and the rescuer.
*Remove any jewelry from the affected extremity. Footwear can be removed, but other clothing can be left alone unless clearly tight and causing circulatory compromise.
*Immobilize the injured part of the body with a splint.
*Fashion a splint out of any rigid object (e.g. padded piece of wood or tree branch, rolled newspaper, sleeping bag pad, or backpack frame).
*Transport the patient to the nearest medical facility as quickly as possible.
*Do not allow the victim to walk because exertion and local muscle contraction may increase snake venom absorption.
*Do not manipulate the wound except to permit gentle bandaging or, if indicated, pressure immobilization or placement of a pressure pad.
*Withhold all alcohol and any drugs that may confound clinical assessment or interfere with treatment (E.g., anticoagulants, aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, or beta blockers).

Methods to avoid: The following methods, while used widely in the past and advocated by some, cause more harm than good and should be avoided.
*Incision and oral suction
*Mechanical suction devices
*Electric shock therapy

For example, a common misconception is that one should apply a tourniquet, suck out the poison, and spit it out. However, this approach is strongly discouraged, since it can damage nerves, tendons, and blood vessels and lead to infection. Furthermore, venom removal by suction is minimal. Tourniquets may cut off arterial blood flow and cause significant ischemic damage, especially when left on for a prolonged period.

Beauty & Make Up Tips for Raksha Bandhan

Shahnaz Husain

Raksha Bandhan is one of the important festivals, when brothers and sisters celebrate the loving bond between them. Like all festive occasions, girls love to dress up and look their best. It’s a good idea to start following a few beauty tips a few days before, to add a glow to the skin. In the hot and humid season, the skin needs toning and refreshing. Here are some home remedies:

Watermelon juice is a good skin toner and relieves dryness too. It cools, refreshes and softens the skin. Apply on the face and wash off with plain water after 20 minutes.

Fruit Mask for all Skin Types: Fruits like banana, apple, papaya, orange can be mixed together and applied on the face. Keep it on for 20 to 30 minutes. Then wash off with water. It cools the skin, cleanses dead cells and removes tan.

Cooling Mask: Mix cucumber juice with two teaspoons powdered milk and one egg white into a smooth paste. Apply on face and neck and rinse off with water after half an hour.

Mask for Oily Skin: Mix one tablespoon Multani Mitti with rose water into a paste and apply on the face. Wash off when dry.

After applying face mask, take two of the cotton wool pads soaked in rose water and use them as eye pads. Squeeze out the rose water and then apply on closed lids. Lie down and relax, while you have the mask and eye pads on. Used tea bags can also do the trick. Soak them in a little warm water, squeeze out the water and apply on the eyes like eye pads.

To soften rough, bushy or frizzy hair, mix some water with creamy hair conditioner and put it in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the hair. Then comb the hair, so that it spreads through the hair.

Raksha Bandhan is usually celebrated during the day. Daytime make-up has to be light and carefully done. If you have a clear skin, leave out foundation. After cleansing, apply a sunscreen with a built-in moisturizer. Then apply powder. Translucent powder, like a baby powder, is good. For oily skin, apply astringent lotion, instead of moisturizer. Then, apply compact powder. Pay attention to the oily areas of the face, like nose, forehead and chin. Press the powder all over the face and neck, with a slightly damp sponge. This helps it to set and last longer. If you wish to apply blusher, use less and blend well. Blush-on should be like a gradual flush on the face.

For eye make-up stick to eye pencils during the day. Or line your eyelids with brown or gray eye shadow. This gives a softer effect. Then, apply only one coat of mascara, which helps to make the eyes look darker and brighter, but prevents the “heavily made-up” look.

For lipstick, avoid very dark colours, like dark maroon. Go for light pastel colours, pink, mauve, light browns, copper or bronze. The colours should not be too intense. Or, use only lip gloss. First outline the lips with a lip pencil, same shade as your lipstick. Fill in colour with a lipstick brush. Obviously outlined lips are out of fashion.

For a special occasion like Raksha Bandhan, you can try out a new hairstyle, like putting up your hair with fancy hair clips or ribbons. Wearing flowers in the hair can be quite alluring.

Long hair is very much the trend, with cascading waves or curly and bouncy hair. Go for the softer look, with curls or natural waves, in the lower half of the hair. The classic ponytail is also dictating trends. It suits most face shapes, because one can wear a pony tail high or low, with a fringe or without, or with wisps or curls falling down, with that carefully-careless look. A ponytail is actually an easy hair do. With ribbons, or other hair accessories, it can even provide a touch of glamour. One can have a ponytail for a formal or an informal look. For a long face, wear a low pony tail and have a light long fringe falling straight down. For an oval face, wear it with a side-swept fringe. For a square jawed face, have wisps of long curls falling down on either side of the face, just beyond jaw level. It will suit a round face too. Or you can put the hair up with the help of hair clips.

Onam is the biggest festival in the Indian state of Kerala. Onam Festival falls during the Malayali month of Chingam (Aug - Sep) and marks the homecoming of legendary King Mahabali.

Intricately decorated Pookalam, ambrosial Onasadya, breathtaking Snake Boat Race and exotic Kaikottikali dance are some of the most remarkable features of Onam - the harvest festival in Kerala.

Carnival of Onam lasts from four to ten days. First day, Atham and tenth day, Thiruonam are most important of all. Popularity and presentation of rich culture of the state during the carnival made Onam the National Festival of Kerala in 1961. Elaborate feasts, folk songs, elegant dances, energetic games, elephants, boats and flowers all are a part of the dynamic festival called Onam.

Government of India has taken due notice of this vibrant and colorful festival. It promotes Onam internationally in a big way and celebrates 'Tourist Week' for Kerala during Onam celebrations. Thousands of domestic and foreign tourists visit Kerala to be a part of Onam.

The Legend

Story goes that during the reign of mighty asura (demon) king, Mahabali, Kerala witnessed its golden era. Every body in the state was happy and prosperous and king was highly regarded by his subjects. Apart from all his virtues, Mahabali had one shortcoming. He was egoistic. This weakness in Mahabali's character was utilized by Gods to bring an end to his reign as they felt challenged by Mahabali's growing popularity. However, for all the good deed done by Mahabali, God granted him a boon that he could annually visit his people with whom he was so attached.

It is this visit of Mahabali that is celebrated as Onam every year. People make all efforts to celebrate the festival in a grand way and impress upon their dear King that they are happy and wish him well.

Onam Celebrations

Rich cultural heritage of Kerala comes out in its best form and spirit during the ten day long festival. It is indeed a treat to be a part of the grand carnival. People of Kerala make elaborate preparations to celebrate it in the best possible manner.

The most impressive part of Onam celebration is the grand feast called Onasadya, prepared on Thiruonam. It is a nine course meal consisting of 11 to 13 essential dishes. Onasadya is served on banana leaves and people sit on a mat laid on the floor to have the meal.

Another enchanting feature of Onam is Vallamkali, the Snake Boat Race, held on the river Pampa. It is a colourful sight to watch the decorated boat oared by hundreds of boatmen amidst chanting of songs and cheering by spectators.

There is also a tradition to play games, collectively called Onakalikal, on Onam. Men go in for rigorous sports like Talappanthukali (played with ball), Ambeyyal (Archery), Kutukutu and combats called Kayyankali and Attakalam. Women indulge in cultural activities. They make intricately designed flower mats called, Pookalam in the front courtyard of house to welcome King Mahabali. Kaikotti kali and Thumbi Thullal are two graceful dances performed by women on Onam. Folk performances like Kummatti kali and Pulikali add to the zest of celebrations.
