Chained Within Beauty That Is Skin Deep

In the past, it was mostly a prerequisite for girls to be fair, be it simply for self-confidence or for finding a job or a suitable groom. As a result, cosmetic companies, taking complete advantage of this shallow understanding of beauty, launched a plethora of products like Fair n Lovely, Garnier Fairness Cream, Olay White Beauty, etc. It wasn’t too difficult for these companies to blindfold the consumers by coaxing them with the promise of “two times fairer in just a month” which could actually be measured with a “fairness meter”. How ridiculous does that sound?

Are Intellectual Property Rights The Way to Go? 

However, a large amount of this information is bound by the enigma of limited access, available only to those who are ready to pay for it.

Standard Of Advertising In India 

The basic idea of an advertisement is to let the viewer analyze whether the product or commodity will be useful for a person or not. The ad has to directly make a positive and cognitive effect on its viewer. But the advertisements that are on air these days lack a solid concept. Many advertisements are so misleading, that in the end the audience wonders as to what was the utility of all the clippings that were shown. Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.

The Help: Walls Have Ears

Well, I have noticed this many a times, how people converse freely and without any hesitation about things which well, should not be talked about in such a public setting. I was once in a metro, and I heard this woman talk to an apparent stranger. She was talking about an account of her company and the amount she was talking about, they were a large amount. She was talking quite loudly in the otherwise, quiet metro. I was so amazed that she would talk about such monetary issues of her company so loudly and without a care as to who was listening; someone with not so good intentions could have heard and done something which could compromise her company or for that matter, even her.

Unconventional Career Options

There is no dearth of opportunities in unconventional fields. Radio channels are always in need of good Radio jockeys who can raise the popularity of their channels.

There are not that many training institutes though offering good quality courses when it comes to an unconventional field. But that doesn’t stop students from going after their dream career. They get trained abroad in the respective area of interest if they are not finding any good training centers in India. Some of the offbeat careers don’t require any special degree so anybody who is passionate and has the basic skills can jump into these fields.

Kashmir: Cause Or A Symptom Of India-Pakistan Rivalry?

In 1947, a small Muslim-dominated Princely state in the north-western part of the Indian sub-continent, the Maharaja (ruler) of Kashmir was to decide which side the state would join when the country was being partitioned. The Maharaja singed the Instrument of Accession deciding temporarily to join India until a referendum was to be held in which the people where to make the final call.
