Gudi Padwa

New Delhi: India is the land of culture and festivals and the one common element that you cannot go without is sweets and delicacies! While many of you prepare to celebrate it virtually through a physically distanced Gudi Padwa, ensure that you not only have a safe but a healthy festival by making simple lifestyle modifications.

Sugar is one of the most common elements attributed to lifestyle-related disorders and is often referred to as the “silent killer”. Sugar is deep rooted in Indian culture and traditions and plays a significant part of our lives. Over the years, the negative narrative around sugar has been gaining ground with the increase in diabetes. Caught between this dichotomy, sugar has become a double-edged sword, given this, one is currently conflicted. Therefore, it is important to switch from sugar to healthier alternatives and make small changes in your lifestyle and kitchen tops to not thrive during festive season — especially at this point in time, with the second wave hitting India in full swing. It is of prime importance to promote healthy eating and strengthen your immunity by ditching the silent killers.

Enjoy the festivities guilt-free with these tips:

Cut aerated drinks from your celebrations

Most parties and gatherings are usually always accompanied with fizzy beverages. The sugar levels in these drinks are very high. Try replacing these drinks with natural immunity-boosting juices, green tea and buttermilk.

Swap white and milk chocolate for dark chocolate

Try switching to dark chocolate this Ugadi as it contains cocoa which has antioxidants that help prevent excessive weight gain. A double celebration would be one that contains dark chocolate which is also sugar free!

Ditch table sugar for low calorie sweeteners

Sugar is a no-compromise element in most delicacies and sweets. Thus it is imperative to switch to healthier alternatives like sugar-free low calorie sweeteners, that are not only deemed safe for consumption by authorised council bodies, but also ensure that one does not compromise on the sweetness criteria! Both purposes solved!

Introduce healthy snacking

Parties are filled with chips and other fried snacks that one simply cannot resist gorging on. Replace your chips tray with almonds, healthy nuts and make them a part of the festive spread. They are filled with nutrients and keep your hunger at bay in-between meals.

Swap candies with fresh fruit and prepare sweets at home

Preparing the sweets at home will not only help you pay attention to the quantity and size, but will also make you conscious about the amount of butter/sweeteners/salt being used. Use substitutes like olive oil/ghee instead of regular oil, sugar for low calorie sweeteners, dry fruit instead of candies, whole grain instead of maida, etc.

New Delhi: Stress has become the most widely used term which is engulfing not only humans but also companion animals. Although in pets, stress is linked with ageing, compromised immunity, change of weather, among various other factors, informs Prachi Kshatriya, Veterinarian, who also consults on Practo.

“Talking about the most stress sensitive organ, heart, it not only fulfills the requirement of every body tissue but also acts as a support system during the pressure phase.”

Usually large breeds like:

*Doberman Pinschers

*Labrador Retrievers

*Boxers

*Great Danes

*German Shepherds, etc

and middle aged dogs are more prone to cardiac ailments like congestive cardiac failure, heart valve insufficiency, pericardial effusion and many more, says the doctor.

Don’t ignore your dog if you notice the following:

*regular coughing

*exhausted after short walk or playful activity

*lying down for long

*reduced appetite

*reluctant to climb stairs

*dull appearance and sitting alone

“Approximately, 10 per cent young and 65 per cent of older dogs suffer from various cardiac problems and end up dying either due to negligence or unawareness of the owners.”

The expert advises: “Consult a vet if you find any changes in your pet’s behaviour or routine activities, the vet will perform some blood work and imaging tests like x-ray, echocardiography, electrocardiography, etc to confirm whether your pet is suffering from any cardiac malfunctioning or not.”

New Delhi: If you are among those health-conscious people, then you should relish baked gujiyas this Holi. For those, who avoid oily and traditional sweets can now gorge themselves on baked gujiyas stuffed with dry fruits and which are also available in different flavours.

The confectioners have come up with novel ideas in sweets, snacks and thandai. One can find the trays of sweets well decorated with varieties of colourful gujiyas of different flavours displayed in the shops and restaurants across the country, particularly in north India during Holi, the festival of colours.

Gujiya is a traditional local Indian sweet and has a good demand during Holi. Traditionally, gujiya was prepared with ‘maida’ stuffed with ‘mava’ or ‘khoya’ and dry fruits, and after fry it was dipped in sugar syrup. But, now sugar free, oil free and baked gujiya is also available in the market.

Gujiyas stuffed with a mixture of khoya and chocolate chips topped with chocolate syrup attract youngsters, said Firoz H Naqvi, Director, Federation of Sweets & Namkeen Manufacturers (FSNM) who expects good business sweets and snacks this year.

Gujiya is a popular sweet dish in Holi as it shares over 50 per cent of the total business of sweets while the total turnover of the sweets and snacks across India remains from Rs 8,000 crore to Rs 10,000 crore on this festival, said Naqvi.

Sales of Thandai accounts for nearly 10-15 per cent sales, he added.

Talking to IANS, FSNM Director said that it is an opportunity to the sweets and snacks manufacturers to bring innovations into their business and expand the trade post the Covid-19 pandemic, that has failed to dampen the festive spirit.

The branded sweets and snacks manufacturers have brought gujiyas in a wide range of flavours with foreign ingredients, roasted coconuts and baked recipes.

Pushpendra Sharma, Mithas Sweets and Restaurants told IANS that he has brought delicious chocolate gujiya apart from baked gujiya and Gulkand Gujiya which attract customers a lot.

He said that baked gujiya has attracted good demand as it is oil free and a healthy sweet dish.

Haldiram, a big brand in the industry, has introduced cranberry, a popular superfood, in kesar gujiya for the first time which attracted good demand, said Ankit Chawla, Senior Manager, Haldiram Products (R&D).

He said Haldiram’s packed sweets and namkeen have picked up good demand from online buyers during Covid-19 pandemic and sales have increased this year on Holi as compared to last year. Haldiram has also introduced a new product of baked Spanish corn recently, he added.

India’s one of the major packaged snacks brand Bicano has also brought a wide range of Gujiya with different flavours and thandai apart from snacks during this Holi.

Manish Agrawal, Director, Bikano, said that he has launched gujiyas and thandai in different flavours.

According to Agrawal, demand for packaged food items has increased during covid-19 pandemic and post covid period and his company’s sales have increased around 10-15 per cent in the past seven months.

Despite covid-19 restrictions the major of Madhya Pradesh sales of Bhanwarilal Mithaiwala of Indore remained least affected.

Anil Saini of Bhanwrilal told IANS that 2-day lockdown has been imposed for Sunday and Monday when Holi is celebrated in the City but customers have already bought the sweets so, covid-19 restriction left no impact on confectionary business.

Tips and tricks to protect your skin and hair this Holi

New Delhi: The most vibrant and colourful time of the year is finally here. A festive mood fills the air as people across the country get set for Holi celebrations. Enjoyed with water and gulaal (colour), the festival of colours adds dollops of fun in our otherwise mundane routine.

But the fun must be tempered with caution because synthetic colours contain harmful chemicals that penetrate deep within your skin and hair. Toxic colours can seriously harm them. Therefore be careful with such colours.

IANSlife speaks to experts to help you protect your skin and hair before the riot of colours sets in.

Experts at Urban Company share pre-Holi hair care guide:

Step 1

Get rid of the split ends: Often used during Rangwali Holi, synthetic colours are known for their drying effect. With split ends, your hair becomes excessively prone to dryness, leading to further damage. To maintain the quality of your hair, it’s best to get rid of split ends right before the festivities.

Step 2

Wash your hair: One may wonder — how does washing hair even before getting dirty make sense? Yet, it does! Cleansing your scalp properly before giving it a protective shield to deal with harsh chemicals is the right approach to pre-Holi hair care. Wash your hair properly and make sure you condition it as well, the night before Holi. For better results, you can even apply a leave-in conditioner before playing Holi.

Step 3

Oil Massage: Ensure your hair is deeply oiled before stepping outside the house to play with colours. It prevents the colours from penetrating the hair shaft and in minimising hair breakage when you wash your hair later. You can use any basic oil (coconut, olive or mustard) and massage your scalp thoroughly to form a protective layer on your hair.

Step 4

Cover your hair: Never step outside during Holi without covering your head. After the oiling process is done, cover your hair with a cap, scarf or even a bandana. Also, open hair is a big no! It soaks all the colours, which are harmful to the scalp. Tie your hair into a ponytail or make a bun.

Post-Holi hair care

Step 1

Comb your hair: After playing with colours for hours together, don’t rush to wash your hair. Comb it first. Combing and brushing hair before washing allows you to get rid of dry colours, making it easier to clean later. Of course, this works only for dry colours.

Step 2

Head Wash: Washing your hair is a must after indulging in an hours-long water barrage of colours. Begin by rinsing your hair with plain water, then apply a mild organic shampoo to wash off the colours from the scalp. Do not massage your scalp harshly to get rid of all the colours in the first wash. Else you will end up with a headache afterwards. Instead, use your fingertips to gently massage your scalp, making small circular movements, which will help you get rid of the colours and also leave you feeling relaxed after the shower. Moreover, be certain to use a deep conditioner after shampooing and rinse it well. You can also apply a hair serum, as soon as your hair dries.

Step 3

Hair Mask: The post-Holi hair care routine is all about pampering your hair with extra love and care. Use a good hair mask after two to three days. This will nourish your hair, helping it recover from the damage caused by harsh chemicals in the colours. Prepared with ingredients such as lemon, eggs, yoghurt and amla, a hair mask is most helpful in giving your tresses a fresh bounce.

Step 4

Hair Spa: Colours often damage the hair, making them harsh and increasing hair fall. A good hair spa should be mandatory after Holi. Depending on your hair type, get a customised hair spa treatment to restore lost moisture and make your tresses frizz-free and manageable. A hair spa is an ideal 360-degree cure for all your post-Holi hair woes.

Pre-Holi skincare guide by Himanshu Gandhi, CEO and Co- Founder, Mother Sparsh

Step 1

Wash your face with a hydrating face wash: No soap, but face wash is the right product here. Soaps tend to steal the moisture from your skin, and application of any cream oil afterwards is quickly absorbed by the skin, leaving no protective layer outside. Using all-natural face wash is the key. They leave behind super hydrated skin. Use of ingredients, such as Cinnamomum Tamala (Tejpatra oil), Earth Marine Water, mint, Decyl glucoside, Aqua and Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glyceryl Laurate, (natural) Vanilla Oil and more are preferred for skin nourishment.

Step 2

Tone well before applying a deep-nourishing moisturiser: Face toning is a clutch part of this routine to ensure an optimum moisture level in the skin. It is recommended to use natural products such as creme or oils such as Argan oil for protection. It can help create a strong foundation for creams to build a strong protection layer.

Step 3

Covering under-eye skin: Protect the thin skin around the eye with a top-rated Plant Powered (natural) Under Eye Recovery Gel.

Step 4

Lip balm for lip protection: The most ignored part on our face in any beauty routine are the lips. The ill-effect of harmful colours can damage the sensitive skin of your lips. You can use any plant-based lip balm made with natural ingredients such as rose, calendula, ginger lemon and more.

Post-Holi skin care tips

For people on the go, simply slip a packet or two of Origami’s Wet Wipes into your back pocket, your bag or place in your car — these easy-to-carry, soft wipes are a blessing in their colourful guises and come in four refreshing fragrances: rose and cologne for those who love a more robust scent, and lemon and aloe vera for subtler and delicate noses.

Experts at Urban Company shares more:

Step 1

Do not use Soaps and Face washes

The chemicals in the colours already play their part in robbing moisture off your skin. Using drugstore soaps and face washes that are largely laced with chemicals can further rip off the natural alkaline level of your skin. Instead, opt for an organic soap or other gentle cleaning products for your skin to restore the skin. One should also refrain from scrubbing their face right after playing with colours. Our skin tends to be excessively sensitive after coming in contact with the chemicals, and it will not be able to handle any more harsh treatments.

Step 2

Use Oil to Remove Colours

Time and again, olive oil has proven beneficial for skin, hair, and provides overall health benefits. The extremely mild nature of olive oil can help get rid of any residual colour on your skin. Pour a few drops of olive oil onto a ball of cotton, and wipe the colours gently off your skin after Holi.

Step 3

Pamper your Skin a little Extra

After all the cleaning to get rid of the colour, it is only if your skin is exhausted at the end of the day. Give it some extra love and care by applying natural face masks and face packs. You can also try using uptans made from easily available ingredients like curd and besan (gram flour), or rose water, sandalwood and turmeric. The healing effect of the natural ingredients will give your skin much-needed comfort after a rough day, and will also help restore the natural balance.

Poor Sleep Quality May Increase Risk For Heart Disease

New Delhi: Good sleep is central to our well-being. Nothing rejuvenates our body and mind as well as sound sleep. However, at times we can’t sleep properly as we may be tensed or excited or our body is not completely exhausted. This happens with all of us but generally this is a one-time phenomenon. But some suffer chronically from lack of proper sleep and may be suffering from Sleep Apnea. This if left untreated can have a damaging impact on a person’s overall health.

Medically speaking, Sleep Apnea has multiple reasons like obstruction in the throat, when the brain fails to detect signals to muscles that manage breathing and at times when both happen together. Typically, because the person is gasping for breath during the sleep, the person intermittently wakes up which leads to disturbed sleep. Since this is a repeated pattern, it leads to health complications such as compromised immune system, lack of proper memory, high blood pressure, diabetes and feeling of tiredness and irritability during the day. It impairs the person’s cognitive ability as well.

But there are certain home remedies which can be highly beneficial. On World Sleep Day, Dr. Satya Rajan Sahu, Pulmonologist, PSRI Hospital shared some tips which can be beneficial in overcoming Sleep Apnea.

Manage weight

Obesity is a major problem responsible for many health issues and it is so in the case of Sleep Apnea as well. Obesity can lead to Airway Obstruction- meaning partial or complete blocking of air to lung and thus disrupting sleep. So if you are overweight and suffer from Sleep Apnea, you should do all efforts to reduce weight.

Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise or Yoga is like a panacea for any disease. Here too exercises can strengthen your respiratory system, your lungs inhale oxygen and since Sleep Apnea is caused by oxygen deprivation, the exercises or Yoga can help immensely in this.

Changing Sleep Positions

It has been found that changing sleep positions helps. If a person sleeps on back, it obstructs the breathing, so sleeping on the side may work.

Using air humidifier

Sometimes dry air in the closed environment can hinder oxygen diffusion, so devices like humidifiers which can improve moisture level can also help. Adding oils to these humidifiers is also recommended.

Having better lifestyle

Avoiding junk food, drinking and smoking. These impact the breathing pattern and best avoided to overcome Sleep Apnea. Smoking damages lungs, so excessive smoking does impair sleep pattern. So, it is better avoided. Avoiding caffeine at night is also recommended as it disrupts the sleep.

Medical Treatment

In some patients above tips may not work. In consultation with the doctor, such patients can opt for a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure therapy (CPAP) machine. It helps a person to breathe more easily during sleep as it keeps the airway open by applying positive pressure.

Cholesterol

New Delhi: While alcohol intake and thyroid issues among Indians seem to have reduced over the past year, a new health report has detailed a concerning increase in levels of blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes, despite fitness and health becoming a nationwide area of interest during the Covid-19 lockdown.

As per the Health Risk Assessment (HRA) Score, 1 in 2 Indians is either in the ‘High Risk’ or ‘Borderline’ category. This is a massive 12 per cent improvement from last year’s figures where 62 per cent Indians fell into the ‘Unhealthy’ category.

According to GOQii’s latest India Fit Report 2021, majority of people can become healthy by making few adjustments to their lifestyle. Reduction in commute time and lockdown probably allowed Indians to focus more on their health and making their immune system stronger. From a gender wise perspective, men are healthier in comparison to women. From an age wise perspective, the younger generation is unhealthier in comparison to the older generation.

Blood Pressure

About 15 per cent of users have reported high BP in 2020 in comparison to 13.4 per cent in 2019. This figure, according to the report, has steadily increased over the last 4 years. About 35 per cent users also reported this disease runs in the family which is a significant figure. Blood pressure cases among older adults are just triple of those in adults. Safe to say, then, that people above 45 are at more risk of having hypertension.

Diabetes

An analysis conducted by a full-stack digital ecosystem for diabetes care and management revealed that the average pre-pandemic fasting sugar levels in January till mid-February was 138 mg/dl whereas in March till mid-April it rose to 165 mg/dl. One-third claim this disease runs in the family. The percentage of those suffering from diabetes went triple, from adults to older adults.

Cholesterol

About 13 per cent users reported high cholesterol, a figure that has remained stable for the past two years. On the other hand, only 4 per cent mentioned they had heart issues which is a major decrease from 8.6 per cent in 2019.

Alcohol

Figures for drinking have reduced for almost all of the age groups and across a majority of cities. Many reasons can be accounted for the same. To start with, the biggest reason can be the onset of the nationwide lockdown because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Travelling was restricted and all the major places where usually people used to drink earlier like cafes, restaurants, bars etc. were shut down. All of these cumulatively decreased the drinking of the people as the only option they were left with was to drink at home, which was not a feasible option for a lot of people. Some comfortably did that, while a majority were not that comfortable in drinking amid their family members and hence the number reduced this year.

As compared to last year’s data, there is a significant reduction in the number of people falling sick in every age category this year. This could be due to the increased awareness in people regarding immunity levels through healthy lifestyle and nutrition food choices. The dip in pollution levels across the nation could also be a reason for this.

The report also revealed that stress levels remained high throughout the year. The survey outcome highlighted a rise in stress index from 4.98 in Mid-year to 5.11 at end of the year. Forty-five per cent are currently plagued with depression.

City-wise, Surat, Jaipur and Patna are the top 3 healthiest cities in India, respectively, as revealed by the survey whereas Lucknow, Kolkata and Chennai are the unhealthiest.

Gone are the days when dental treatments and a visit to a dentist were a horror story. With constant advancements in technology and remedies, dental treatments have become so advanced that they are painless and less invasive now.

Dentistry, in spite of being one of the oldest branches of medicine, is often undervalued. To this day, dentists play an important role in the medical profession. Today (the 6th of March) on the National Dentist’s Day, it is imperative to bring awareness among people about dentistry so that they gain knowledge about maintaining oral health and hygiene.

Dentists use this day to aware and encourage people to take care for their teeth. They also show up with posters to spread awareness on dental habits. Dentists also celebrate this day by posting health tips on the importance of smiling, oral health and asking people to do regular visits to check their dental health.

Oral hygiene is a must because good oral health translates to good health over all. Dental problems such as cavities and gum disease can impair your abilities to eat and speak properly, cause pain and bad breath.

Here is something everyone needs to know and follow to keep dental problems at bay.

– Brush your teeth at least two minutes, twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste.
– Clean between your teeth daily (Floss).
– Adult toothpaste and kids toothpaste are different.
– Eat a balanced diet and limit eating and drinking between meals, etc.
– Replace your toothbrush every three months (or sooner if the bristles begin to look worn out).
– Keep your tongue clean regularly.
– Always use soft or ultra soft toothbrush (strictly avoid hard bristle brushes).
– Don’t brush haphazardly because there is a specific technique of brushing.
– Consumption of acidic beverages (cold drinks, alcohol, soda) have detrimental effects on the tooth, avoid as much as possible.
– Abrasive toothpaste should be avoided (consult a dentist for better advice).
– Visit your dentist twice a year or as recommended by your dentist for prevention and treatment of oral diseases.

Cancer

By Puja Gupta

New Delhi: Cancer is an unnatural growth of cells that wrecks the healthy environment of the body. The complications associated with it is not because of the disease, but due to the delayed diagnosis as the symptoms are mostly unclear at times.

India has recorded a 333 per cent increase in online consultations with oncologists between January and December 2020, as per Practo’s latest insights report. Of the total online consultations, 40 per cent came from non-metro cities while 60 per cent from metro cities. Non-metros recorded a steep 932 per cent increase in the number of online consultations, while the metro cities grew by 410 per cent.

The findings indicated increased awareness about the disease and improved access to cancer specialists online, especially in non-metro cities – from 5 per cent in 2018 and 20 per cent in 2019 to 40 per cent in 2020.

Meanwhile, a new observation was made in 2020 – the top searched queries were different in different parts of the country. People in non-metro cities enquired more about types of cancer such as bladder, thyroid, ovaries, and anal. In metro cities, on the other hand, the majority of queries revolved around more common types of cancer (like blood, breast, cervical, and oral).

On World Cancer Day marked across the globe on February 4 every year, Oncologist at Practo shares a list of commonly ignored symptoms, which could be warning signs of cancer. Cancers are painless when they start and so they get ignored by the patient and doctors alike.

Anaemia: Tiredness in cancer is usually due anaemia (lack of blood) and deficiency of nutrition. The cancer drains most of nutrients from the body in its race to grow rapidly. Also there is bleeding from cancer tissue that makes one anaemic.

Blood while passing stool: Very often, this is due to piles or similar causes. However, colon cancer and rectum cancer can also cause this. If a person happens to find blood in stool, it is wise to do colonoscopy to look inside of the colon. Cancer of colon can cause change in bowel habit (like alternating constipation and diarrhoea)

Blood in urine: This always requires further tests. Cancer of the kidney or urinary bladder or prostate can result in blood in urine. The worst part is this bleeding can be irregular. This infrequency makes patients ignore this symptom. Even one episode of blood in urine needs through examination.

Bleeding in between periods (women): Any bleeding that does not follow the usual pattern of menstrual period is a warning sign. Cancer of the uterus or cervix can cause these kinds of symptoms. Patients with cervical cancer also bleed after sexual intercourse.

A patch or wound inside mouth: Oral or mouth cancers are common in India. These cancers start as a patch or wound and progress over months. If diagnosed early they can be treated effectively.

Lump or swelling: Cancers of breast and limb begin as painless lumps or swellings and progress over months. Any newly appearing lumps or swellings should be thoroughly examined.

Loss of weight without trying: A sudden weight loss when you are not dieting needs investigations. As cancer consumes most of the nutrition that you take, you tend to lose it.

Loss of appetite and bloating food: This could be because of obstruction to bowel or because of a cancer secreting its toxic substances. Thorough examination is needed to reach a diagnosis.

Lymph node enlargement: Lymph nodes are present everywhere in the body and function as filters. Most of the time they enlarge due to infections. The cancer cells also get filtered in these nodes and are trapped. They grow in these nodes and the nodes enlarge because of this growth.

Trouble swallowing or vomiting after taking food are both warning signs of a cancer in the digestive tract. These need to be evaluated with endoscopic tests to identify the cause. Some patients have only persistent heartburns which are misdiagnosed as gastritis and treated only for months before correct diagnosis reveals itself.

Pain is the last feature of cancer. Do not wait for it.

Kareena-Kapoor

New Delhi: Kareena Kapoor Khan’s latest pictures will convince you to unroll your yoga mat as she flaunts her baby bump and aces yoga poses in her latest photo shoot. The actress, who is pregnant with her second child, has been spreading the word on pre-natal yoga and perfectly balancing out her cravings with her regular yoga practice.

The star has always prioritised fitness, and it’s no surprise that she’s hitting the mat regularly during her pregnancy too, sending a strong message to women. “Practicing mind- body wellness, especially while you are pregnant is extremely essential. Yoga has helped me develop heightened awareness of my body and to be honest, I just feel so much better when I do yoga,” said Kareena Kapoor Khan.

IANSlife caught up with Kareena at the launch of PUMA studio line to find out more about her association with the brand and what works while working out during a pregnancy.

Q: Is pregnancy easier the second time around, in a sense you know what to expect while expecting?

A: Even though you’ve been there and done that, your second pregnancy might spring a surprise at you. They say it’s a lot easier the second time around, but that’s not always true. Of course, you are more experienced than the first time, however, the second pregnancy definitely differs physiologically from the first time.

Q: Why is it important for women to continue working while pregnant?

A: I feel it’s very important to keep oneself busy during pregnancy. It helps you turn off your worries and have a more comfortable pregnancy. In fact, I have always led a very active lifestyle and I just can’t change that about myself just because I am pregnant. I would say do what makes you happy for a healthy pregnancy. If working makes you happy, then you should do it.

Q: Fitness should be an important part of your pregnancy journey, you agree?

A: Definitely. Working out during pregnancy has multiple benefits. It relieves stress, battles mood swings, strengthens immunity and prepares your body for delivery. That’s why my association with PUMA, especially now, makes even more sense.

Q: Your fitness routine through this pregnancy?

A: I have been doing a lot of yoga. Pre-natal yoga is helping me power through my pregnancy.

Q: While children are a joy they are also an expense, many women shirk the financial discussion with their partner, do you think couples should speak about it?

A: Yes, of course. One must have an open discussion with their partner about their financial well-being. Getting ready for parenthood involves a lot of financial preparation. Bringing up a child is a huge responsibility and it’s very important to assess your finances.

Q: Your recent images in PUMA studio line went viral as they portrayed a stronger fiercer you… is that a new Kareena??

A: I have always been very strong and fierce. I wouldn’t call it the new Kareena. In fact, I have always believed in encouraging women to be their unapologetic self. My association with PUMA has given me an opportunity to connect with and encourage more women to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle. Fitness is an integral part of my life and I truly enjoy it in its various forms. It feels great to be the face of a brand you deeply resonate with. My recent images in PUMA’s Studio Collection reflects who I am.

Q: What is the one difference between this and your first pregnancy?

A: I guess I am more prepared and confident this time around. I was quite nervous and jittery since I was going to turn a mother for the first time. This time around, I am way calmer and thankfully, I am not going berserk yet.

The actress can be seen wearing chic yoga wear as she launches the latest yoga collection- Studio Line by PUMA.

She adds: “PUMA’s Studio Line feels like second skin, making working out easier and more stylish. I hope to inspire women to show up to their mat and live a life of confidence and self-care.”

Bird Flu: Properly Cooked Poultry Meat, Eggs Safe To Eat, Suggests FSSAI

New Delhi: A document issued by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India suggests that proper cooking inactivates the bird flu virus present inside meat and eggs.

In view of the bird flu scare in the country, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has issued a guidance document on “Safe handling, processing and consumption of poultry meat and eggs during bird flu pandemic” for creating awareness among the food business operators (FBOs) and consumers.

The document suggests that proper cooking inactivates the virus present inside meat and eggs. Poultry meat and eggs from the areas affected by the outbreak of bird flu should not be consumed raw or partially cooked. Properly prepared and cooked poultry meat and eggs are safe to eat, the FSSAI said.

“However, to date, no evidence indicates that anyone has become infected following the consumption of properly cooked poultry or poultry products, even if these foods were contaminated with the avian influenza virus,” FSSAI said.

The World Health Organization (WHO) also states that it is safe to consume poultry meat and eggs. According to the WHO official website, there is no epidemiological data which suggests that the disease can be transmitted to humans through cooked food.

The major Do’s and Don’ts suggested are — do not eat half-boiled eggs, do not eat undercooked chicken, avoid direct contact with birds in the infected areas, avoid touching dead birds with bare hands, do not keep raw meat in the open, no direct contact with raw meat, use mask and gloves at the time of handling raw chicken, wash hands frequently, maintain the cleanliness of surroundings and eat chicken, eggs and their products after cooking.

The virus is destroyed at a temperature of 70-degree Celsius if held for about three seconds. Also, properly cooking meat or eggs to achieve a temperature of 74-degree Celsius in eggs or all parts of meat will inactivate the virus.

The FSSAI has urged the FBOs and consumers not to panic and ensure proper handling and cooking of poultry meat and eggs for their safe consumption as outlined in the guidance document.

Although sick birds will normally stop producing eggs, eggs laid in the early phase of the disease could contain the virus in the egg-white and yolk as well as on the surface of the shell. Proper cooking inactivates the virus present inside the meat and eggs, the FSSAI said.

WHO Panel To Issue Recommendations On Moderna's Covid-19 Vaccine

Geneva: A World Health Organization (WHO) panel of vaccine experts is set to issue recommendations on Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine on Tuesday.

The WHO had granted emergency use validation for the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine on December 31, 2020, opening the door for countries to expedite their own regulatory approval processes to import and administer the vaccine.

Now the WHO panel has reviewed data from Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine.

In a media advisory about the next week’s event, the WHO said on Friday that the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization will make public its interim recommendations to WHO on the use of Moderna Covid-19 (mRNA-1273) vaccine.

“The recommendations have been agreed at the SAGE extraordinary meeting held on January 21 (Thursday),” said the advisory.

The Moderna Covid-19 vaccine has already been approved for emergency use in several countries, including the US.

The vaccine is administered as two doses, one month apart to prevent Covid-19.

According to a report released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday, over 1,200 adverse events were reported after receipt of Moderna Covid-19 vaccine as of January 10, with 10 cases determined to be anaphylaxis.

Minor adverse events after vaccinations are not uncommon.

While many countries rely on their own regulatory systems for vaccine approvals, some countries with weak system depend on WHO’s nod to a great extent for rolling out their national vaccination programmes.

New Delhi: People change the colour of their tresses quite often. Hair colour has the power to alter your personality and make you feel like a whole other person altogether. But whether it’s about covering those pesky greys or experiment with new hair colour, there are several myths around hair colouring. Sameer Hamdare, Zonal Technical Manager, Streax Professional speaks to IANSlife to burst the myths and shares the facts about hair colouring.

Myth: If you colour your hair once, you have to keep colouring it.

Fact: This is not true at all! Recolouring your hair is entirely your choice. Colouring your hair does not mean that you can never have its natural colour back.

Myth: Colouring your hair will make it go grey sooner.

Fact: Grey hair is entirely genetic, and colouring does not accelerate the greying of hair. The hair starts greying when the melanin stops producing the colour pigment, and this is when your hair starts turning into grey.

Myth: Colouring will make your hair-thin.

Fact: Colour has no role in making your hair thin, deficiency in vitamins and minerals could be one reason your hair starts thinning.

Myth: Colouring will damage your hair.

Fact: This is one of the biggest myths and one that you all must have heard all the time. Colouring your hair can’t have an incredibly negative impact on your hair. Still, there are many different options on the market for maintaining healthy hair while having fun with the colours, and you need to use a colour safe shampoo, conditioner, and serum, a significant culprit for damaged hair lies in the use of colour if using a proper technique & aftercare then your hair will be just as soft and healthy always.

Myth: Hair colour is difficult to maintain.

Fact: No, hair colour is easy to maintain, you need an excellent aftercare product such as (shampoo, conditioner & serum it is vital but don’t buy them without consulting with your hairstylist, as he/she know your hair & scalp.

All About Bird Flu: Outbreaks in Odisha, Threats to Human, Symptoms And Prevention

Bhubaneswar: The outbreak of Bird Flu in as many as seven states in India in the time of Covid-19 pandemic poses a big threat, especially when many new corona positive cases were being detected every day in those states.

So far, Odisha is yet confirm a single bird flu case in the State, though reports of bird deaths have come in from Khurda.

Another twist here is the timing of the emergence of the Avian virus. Since its the winter season – the time when human influenza virus remains very active, public health experts warn that this could become a double whammy. They think the outbreak this time cannot be a brief show.

Why Scientists Think So?

The scientists at the US-based Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recently warned that the current highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) Asian (H5N1) virus outbreak among poultry (epizootic) in some countries is not expected to diminish significantly in the short term.

And the big warning they dropped is: Influenza A viruses circulating among poultry have the potential to recombine with human influenza A viruses and become more transmissible among humans.

It then cautioned, “If HPAI Asian H5N1 viruses gain the ability for efficient and sustained transmission among humans, an influenza pandemic could result, with potentially high rates of illness and death worldwide. Therefore, the HPAI H5N1 epizootic continues to pose an important public health threat.”

Indian Bird Flu Scenario

Bird Flu virus H5N1 made debut in India in the year 2006. The country has not detected the HPAI Asian H5N1 so far. The Bird Flu virus detected in the country is of low pathogenic nature H5N1 strain.

Pathogenicity: The ability of the organism (here virus) to produce disease in a host (here poultry Birds and also Human beings). Higher pathogenicity means – the virus can induce the disease in the host in a big way and the vice versa described as lower pathogenicity.

 The Result: Despite 28 episodes in the country, not a single human infection of Bird Flu virus case detected. But World has reported few H5N1 and H7N9 infections in humans.

State-Wise Scenario

First outbreak happened in February 2006 in Gujarat and later in Maharasthra. The outbreak spread largely happened in Maharashtra, as the episode lasted till April. Maharashtra had then 28 hotspots compared to Gujarat’s only one.

From West, the scene shifted to east when during January – May 2008, West Bengal reported bird Flu outbreak. And the hotspots zoomed to a high of 68, reveals the data available with Union Ministry of Animal Husbandry and Dairying.  Other hotspot states/UTs are: UP, Bihar, Manipur, Chandigarh, Tripura, Assam, Kerala, Chhattisgarh, Meghalaya etc.

Odisha Scenario

Odisha saw first Bird Flu outbreak in 2012 January. The State recorded two episodes – one each in January and February.

Big Worry: On February 21, 2014, the government of India informed the World Organization for Animal Health that two house crows tested positive for H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in the state of Odisha. The notification, however, then said the source of the infection is currently unknown.

This episode shows HPAI H5N1 strain had reached Odisha as early as 2014. Therefore, Odisha government need to remain more vigilant.

2017: Odisha  witnessed two episodes of  H5N1 outbreak – Keranga in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela – where virus was detected in crows.

What Is Bird Flu?

Bird flu is caused by a type of influenza virus that rarely infects humans. Over a dozen of bird flu strains identified. But most recent outbreaks were by the two strains — H5N1 and H7N9. When bird flu does strike humans, it can be deadly, said WHO.

As the name suggests, the Flu causing virus occurs naturally in wild waterfowl and can spread into domestic poultry, such as chickens and ducks. The disease is transmitted via contact with an infected bird’s faeces, or secretions from its nose, mouth or eyes.

Human Transmission Possible?

YES!  The transmission risk exists  from open-air markets, where eggs and birds are sold in crowded and unsanitary conditions. They can turn hotbeds of infection and can spread the disease into the wider community, warned WHO.

As per the top world health body, the mortality rate is high at 60 per cent – means 60 die in every 100 infections.

Can Eggs, Chicken Spread The Virus?

Yes! Undercooked poultry meat or eggs from infected birds can transmit bird flu. The chicken is safe to eat only when it’s been cooked to an internal temperature of 165 F (74 C). And eggs should be cooked until the yolks and whites get firm.

If such norms will not be adhered to than you are at great risk.

The Risk factors

The greatest risk factor for bird flu seems to be contact with sick birds or with surfaces contaminated by their feathers, saliva or droppings. The pattern of human transmission remains mysterious. Though rare, bird flu has been seen transmitted from one human to another. But unless the virus begins to spread more easily among people, infected birds are the greatest source of transmission.

Symptoms: As per WHO

Signs and symptoms of bird flu may begin within two to seven days of infection, depending on the type. In most cases, they resemble those of conventional influenza, including:

Cough

Fever

Sore throat

Muscle aches

Headache

Shortness of breath

Some people also experience nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. And in a few cases, a mild eye infection (conjunctivitis) is the only indication of the disease.

The Complications

People with bird flu may develop such life-threatening complications, including:

Pneumonia

Pink eye (conjunctivitis)

Respiratory failure

Kidney dysfunction

Heart problems

When to see a doctor

See your doctor immediately if you develop a fever, cough and body aches and have recently travelled to a State/country where bird flu episodic attacks have been detected. Tell your doctor whether you have visited any farms or open-air markets.

Prevention

Avoid crowded  open air poultry farms or sale outlets. Don’t touch raw eggs or chicken. Wash your hand with soap to sanitise.

Note: Human Influenza shots have no impact on H5N1 virus. However, four specific human vaccines are available:

1) Sanofi Pasteur’s vaccine by the United States

2) GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccine Prepandrix approved by European Union

3)CSL Limited’s vaccine Panvax approved by Australia.

4) Audenz, an adjuvanted influenza A (H5N1) monovalent vaccine by US. (Adjuvanted Vaccine means a vaccine which carry some additional substances to trigger the immune system of the human body. This therapy is used against influenza virus.)

Positive Impact Of 2020: Environment Bounced Back To Its Glory In The Year Of Pandemic

New Delhi: The COVID-19 pandemic battered and bruised the world in 2020, teaching the value of human life, but an evident positive impact was that it helped the environment bounce back to its glory, even if temporarily.

While schools, workplaces, transport and industry remained closed for a large part of the year as people stayed put in their houses, the grey skies started turning blue and pollutants in the air began to settle.

According to the Central Pollution Control Board, there was a significant improvement in air quality during lockdown (from March 22 to May 18) as PM2.5 in Delhi reduced by almost 50 per cent as compared to levels observed during 2019.

The pollution level in India’s five most-polluted cities – Ghaziabad, Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida and Gurgaon – which are also in the top 10 globally, came down by over 50 per cent during the first 10 days of the lockdown imposed to combat COVID-19 outbreak, said Greenpeace India.

Besides the air quality, there was improvement in water quality of seven rivers – Yamuna, Brahmani, Godavari, Cauvery, Krishna, Tapi and Brahmaputra – which was attributed to minimal industrial effluent discharges in view of closure of almost all industries, no human activities involving disposal of worshipped puja materials and garbage, no anthropogenic activities such as outdoor bathing, washing of clothes, vehicle washing and cattle washing, no pilgrimage activities etc. during lockdown phase, the CPCB had said.

The panic caused by the pandemic came as a blessing in disguise for animals as the government kept humans away from them and their habitats. Swinging into action after a tiger at a US zoo tested positive for COVID-19, the environment ministry had asked all states and union territories to restrict the movement of people in various national parks and sanctuaries to avoid any human-animal contact.

However, as per a study conducted by wildlife trade monitoring network TRAFFIC, incidents of wildlife poaching in India more than doubled during the COVID-19 lockdown with 88 animals being killed for meat and trade during this time compared to 35 in the pre-lockdown days.

The brutal killing of a pregnant elephant in Kerala, after she was fed firecrackers-filled pineapple, took social media by the storm, prompting the government to investigate the matter.

The fear of the pandemic also led people to believe at one point that migratory birds were spreading the disease. However, the government busted the myth saying that “fear psychosis” was being created by people and that there was no connection of coronavirus with migratory birds.

The year gone by also saw India taking the presidency of the 13th Conference of Parties to the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS COP 13) which was held in Gujarat in February, just a month before the coronavirus began wreaking its havoc in the country.

During the conference, the countries adopted an accord, the Gandhinagar Declaration that maintaining and restoring ecological connectivity is one of the top priorities for CMS. Three migratory birds – Great Indian Bustard, Asian Elephant and Bengal Florican – were also classified as “endangered migratory species” by a UN body, paving the way for trans-boundary conservation efforts.

The conference saw participation from over 100 countries except China as it opted out of it due to travel restrictions in the wake of coronavirus outbreak, which began from a single case in its city of Wuhan.

Fear of the impact of COVID-19 on the world economy also caused the government to worry about achieving the climate goals under the Paris Agreement making Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar ask people not to get “too romantic” about the blue skies, fresh air and the green earth.

Noting there was a direct link between COVID-19 and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of wellbeing and health, which is a part of the SDGs set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and intended to be achieved by 2030, the minister had said that the economic consequences of the pandemic may lead to weakening India’s commitment to climate action.

However, few months later, the minister announced that India was the only G20 country in compliance with the Paris Agreement targets and that none of the developed nations are compliant.

The government remained on its toes in tackling waste generated due to the coronavirus cases in the country with the central pollution watchdog CPCB repeatedly issuing guidelines on waste disposal.

As the cases continued to rise, the CPCB directed all health care centres across the country to keep separate colour-coded bins or containers in wards and maintain proper segregation of waste as per the Bio-Medical Waste (BMW) Management Rules 2016 as amended. It said the biomedical waste, if any, generated from quarantine centres or camps should be collected separately in yellow coloured bags and bins.

The Environment Ministry also expedited clearances to bulk drug projects to fight coronavirus by issuing a notification which said the expeditious environmental clearances given to units involving active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and bulk drug intermediates will ensure overall preparedness and availability of drugs to reduce the impact of the outbreak.

The year 2020 also saw a huge tussle between the Centre and environmentalists over the amendments to the environment impact assessment (EIA) with the latter alleging that it intended to bring in controversial amendments such as post-facto grant of approval, exemption of several large industries from public hearings, permission for industries to submit just one compliance report a year rather than two, increased validity of the environment clearances for mining projects and river valley projects, and many more.

While some students from universities and institutions across the country sought that the draft EIA be put on hold as it was published during the pandemic and people could not give their opinions, some sought withdrawal of the draft alleging it was controversial, but the government denied all allegations and responded in negative saying it had already extended the deadline by over a month.

Another decision by the Centre that drew sharp criticism was its grandiose plan to redevelop the Central Vista, which recently got the nod of expert appraisal committee (EAC) bringing it a step closer to getting environmental clearance.

Experts contended that the Rs 13,450 crore project was government’s way of “pampering itself” without considering that the project is going to sacrifice huge green cover and make the air toxic with its construction and demolition dust.

Several jaw-dropping reports were released this year, with one of them claiming that India would need a total land footprint roughly the size of Himachal Pradesh or Chhattisgarh to achieve its ambitious target of 175 giga watts (GW) renewable energy by 2022.

This report was based on the research conducted by environmental think tanks working closely with the government – The Nature Conservancy and the Centre for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP).

Another report claimed that over 4.5 crore people will be forced to migrate from their homes in India by 2050 due to climate disasters including floods, droughts and cyclones, three times more than the present figures. The report based on a study conducted by International agencies ActionAid International and Climate Action Network South Asia, said that by 2050, over 6 crore people will be displaced in South Asia alone. It said that in 2020, the number of people displaced in India is 1.4 crore.

A report by Greenpeace Southeast Asia with inputs from the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA) said that the cost of air pollution borne by India from fossil fuels is 5.4 per cent of the country’s annual GDP and is estimated at USD 150 billion annually, the third highest worldwide.

The year ended on a proud note for the country with 42 wetlands from India, the highest in South Asia, being added to the list of recognised sites of international importance under the treaty of Ramsar Convention, which has 170 countries party to it and over 2,000 designated sites recognised under it.

The latest site to be added from India is a high-altitude wetland complex of two connected lakes, Startsapuk Tso and Tso Kar, in Ladakh. In last three months, four wetlands, the Lonar lake in Maharashtra and Sur Sarovar, also known as Keetham lake, in Agra, Kabartal in Bihar’s Begusarai district and Asan Conservation Reserve in Dehradun were added to the list.

The government also made it clear this year that India’s approach will be positive and constructive at the crucial 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) scheduled to be held in Glasgow, UK in November 2021, and it will make all efforts to make it a success.
