COLOURS AND  YOU

Colors, colors and colors; they’re everywhere; the whole world is filled with them. Right from the most scenic places in the world to the screen in front of your eyes right now, you’re bound to find colors.

Since colors are everywhere, there needs to be some meaning to them.

Red

Red is a bold color. It represents lust, passion, materialism, base energies, bravery, power, drama, emotions, action, passion, aggressiveness, warmth, energy and vibrancy. Its nature is active and stimulating (that’s why you can see more of red in some restaurants as it stimulates hunger).

You can use red color at places that need warmth and energy. Try putting combination of red color shades (not too much) in the living room and see how lively that room becomes.

People suffering from depression or who’re nervous should avoid red color as it can be very stressful.

Blue

Sky and water are represented by this color. Blue also signifies beauty, tranquility, contentment, emotions, inspiration, devotion, truth and mercy. It’s a color that helps healing and reduces pain.

You can use blue colors in areas that are huge. Avoid using blue for small rooms. Always make sure to choose lighter shades of blue while coloring walls of your home. Try to avoid more of blue color in office, shop or factory.

Avoid having too much blue in the house as it’ll lead to cough, cold and similar medical issues.

Green

Growth, nature, relaxation, healing, fertility, abundance, prosperity, positive energy, rebirth, re-creation etc. are the attributes represented by green color. Since it represents healing that’s why you’ll notice more of green color in hospitals.

Another important quality of green color is that it helps to calm down temper and helps soothe the mood. Hence, people or couples with temperament issues can use more of green color.

 

White

White color signifies purity, cleanliness, openness, innocence, simplicity and luxury. Since it also represents privacy and intimacy, you should not paint the whole house white, else you may become egocentric.

You must make sure to have the whole ceiling of the house in white color.

Yellow

Yellow represents happiness, purity, positive thoughts, optimism, openness, illumination, intelligence, study, stable mind, wealth and concentration. Yellow has broadening effect i.e. it can be used at places or rooms that aren’t big; this’ll make the place look bigger than it actually is.

The solar plexus chakra of the human body has yellow color. Hence, people having behavioral issues can use more of yellow color.

Orange

Orange color characterizes pride, determination, goals, communication, good health, vivacity, warmth, action, energy, comfort and ease.

It’s a color that can be used by people who feel depressed with life. Also, young aspirants who’re willing to put in determined efforts to achieve goals in their life should use more of orange color.

However, make sure not to use too much of orange (just use it in moderation).

Brown

Brown represents satisfaction, contentment, comfort, stability and earth element. It’s a masculine color and can be used by anyone who wants to feel happy and satisfied in his life.

Purple

Purple is the color of luxury, riches, graciousness, self-respect and poise. It can be used by people who’re suffering from inferiority complex (especially males).

Violet

It represents spirituality, contentment, satisfaction, memory, concentration, peace of mind and decisive nature.

Indecisive people should use more of violet color; it’ll help them take better decisions and instill confidence. Also, people who feel they’re always discontented with life can use violet color.

Try not to use too much of violet color in office or business place as it’ll make you feel satisfied with whatever money you have and the drive to make more money won’t be in you.

It’s a very good color to be used moderately in kid’s bedroom, pooja room, study room and the rooms of people whose work requires constant mental active

DHADAK

TRUE REVIEW -SAIRAT

See the source image

It is  adapted from Sairat in Hindi but still holds its fort throughout, it’s so similar it’s different! Ishaan Khatter will do nothing but rise from hereon, Janhvi packs a delightful surprise.

The disadvantage of comparison with Sairat! If you can just forget that movie for couple of hours then you’re in for a treat OR if you haven’t seen Sairat yet then don’t even wait till the Watch or Not section.

Only if the restroom in your theater has a screen so you wouldn’t have to miss any scene, so technically – no.

If you’ve watched Sairat, go and watch for some additional comical moments, heart-touching drama and honest performances; if you haven’t, I told you don’t even wait for this section.

Dhadak, remake of 2016’s Marathi blockbuster Sairat, is a love story of Parthavi (Janhvi Kapoor) and Madhukar (Ishaan Khatter). They belong to Udaipur where Parthavi is daughter of the influential politician Ratan Singh and Madhukar is the son of an ordinary man running a small hotel in the city. The bold, beautiful & all-heart Parthavi falls for the simple, sweet and innocent Madhukar.

After romancing on Dhadak, Pehli Baar & dancing on Zingaat, the first kiss between them finally happens. It doesn’t reach its climax though because Parthavi’s family comes in between as soon as they finish their kiss. Now arrives the moment where they’ve to decide whether to choose the path of a coward or do what their predecessors did in Sairat. We all (Sairat lovers) know how it’ll turn out obviously, those who don’t – you’re still here?

To Live-In Or Not To Live-In

When are you getting married is the most frequently asked question to girls and boys who come of age in an Indian society. Is marriage the only option or an alternative waits to be unveiled. The live in concept has slowly crept into the conservative yet ever-evolving Indian culture

‘Live-in-relationship’ is a living arrangement in which an unmarried couple lives together in a long-term relationship that resembles a marriage. It provides the youth an opportunity to know their partner before marriage without engaging in a legally binding relationship with them. India is a country of culture, religions and traditions and at the same time a country which is developing fast and embracing the global changes faster. When it comes to finding answers for such paradigms, we first need to come out of the right and wrong mindset. So let us weigh the pros and cons

PROS

  • The people involved, get to know each other’s characteristics, financial potential, physical and emotional strengths, family background, close relatives and so forth, which eliminates the element of surprise or horror when the relationship is sealed
  • Sharing and division of expenses
  • Neither of the partners is dependant on each other financially, socially or legally, so there is mutual respect in their relationship giving each other the space they need
  • A sense of maturity develops which becomes  a strong foundation of a lifelong relation
  • They can decide whether a long-term relationship is an option and if there are compatibility issues, they can walk out of the relationship
  • Also saves one from the expenses of a big fat Indian wedding and legal hassles associated with separation

CONS

  • The biggest drawback of a Live-in relationship is the social stigma attached to it in the Indian society. Even Indian parents are  not open to such ideas because of the notoriety attached to it
  • There is no sense of security in a live-in relation, be it emotional, financial or mental. A person can be led astray without giving a second thought. Does not give a person a sense of stability or a sense of dependability or even a sense of settling down
  • As there is no accountability, partners may suddenly break up the relationship which may cause emotional trauma to the other person involved
  • The possibility of one party exploiting the other, physically, emotionally or financially is high as there is no credibility towards society or the families.
  • Chances of getting bored and walking out are also high
  • Though no commitment but emotional attachment is always part of a relation which does affect the people involved, married or not
  • Though live-in relationships are legalized in the country and an act is legislated to protect women from an abusive relationship, but Legitimacy, and Inheritance, maintenance of children born out of wedlock presents a dilemma to the Indian Courts

Some may perceive it as a trivialization of responsibilities that come with a relationship as well as an effort to maximize the fun and fantasy part of life and eliminating the pain part. Some people may be of the view that live in reduces the number of divorces and the mental torture families go through also reduces domestic violence as the partner can leave anytime. Does it really? Thoughtworthy!

As society evolves, its values change and new experiments take place.  In a country like ours, live-in relationship culture will take time to establish.  It is more of an alternative, that leads to the more established institution of Marriage. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step; so is living in that first step towards a happily after story?

Wonders Of Art

Ever been able to describe the feeling and the effect it has on your mind when you listen to an impeccably beautiful piece of music; the peace or the exhilaration when dancing on your favourite number! Without art, the stars would collide and all life as we know it would cease to exist. Let us see how these various art forms work wonders in our lives. We all know the art of dance keeps us physically fit. Different kinds of art have different remedial characteristics. Over and above the mental relaxation one attains, learning certain forms of art helps to cure physical problems.

In the age of machinery and gadgets lot of the arts pursued by our grandmothers and great-grandmothers have disappeared knitting is one of them. The art of knitting and crocheting helps to reduce heart rate and blood pressure. The repetitive action of needlework brings a rhythm in the mind and body and brings the mind to a relaxed state. Thus helping to regulate the blood pressure.

The art of singing can help cure stuttering. Stuttering is a speech disorder where a person breaks or repeats words or parts of words. For example instead of saying come to a person says – c..c.. come, instead of to he says t..t.. to. One generally uses a smoother and easier voice while singing compared to when speaking. The words are also prolonged and sung in a tune with a continuous flow. In this process, the brain gets trained to continue the flow of speech and speak without breaks.

Learning to play a musical instrument helps overcome learning difficulties in children such as ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). In some cases, the child can hear but has difficulty processing what he hears. This can affect his ability to concentrate. Music strengthens the auditory and visual areas of the brain. These areas are connected with speech and reading, comprehending, problem-solving and concentration. When children with learning disabilities learn a musical instrument, attention, impulse control, self-esteem, self-expression and memory improve.

The art of painting helps to vent out a number of emotions stored in a person. Such stored emotions which would otherwise result in hypertension, depression, anger or arguments can get away out on the canvas. Art is very often described as an expression of feelings to describe something felt or seen by an individual to others who have not felt or seen the same. All the negative emotions like anger, sadness and depression can be safely expressed using crayons, color pens, and paper. Very often people paint pictures of a person yelling or alone in red, orange and black colors to express their negative feeling. It is better to handover a canvas and paints rather than hammer and nails and who knows venting out may eventually lead to creative painting. In fact, spastic children are encouraged to indulge in art like painting, apart from a definite improvement in physical skills, the fun factor can also bring the mental benefits and stress relief.

Every art in itself gives a joy of creativity and inner satisfaction to an individual. The satisfaction also builds the self-esteem. It takes away the mind from the usual stressful thinking, without actually running away from the problems. As rightly stated by Twyla Tharp “Art is the only way to run away without leaving home”. Art has the power to transform both the mind and the body.

So which form of art are you taking up?
