The Narayanpet handloom Nindustry<br />

is best known for silk products. This<br />

industry is named on the name of the<br />

village Narayanpet in Telangana<br />

Narayanpet handloom is in<br />

demand due to its durability<br />

of colors used in the yarn.<br />

Strong and soft thread used in<br />

handloom making makes the<br />

fabric strong, soft and durable.<br />

From start to end the work is<br />

done by hand. Each weaver<br />

works from home with all his /<br />

her family members helping in<br />

different steps of the process.<br />

It requires approximately<br />

2 to 3 days, of continuous<br />

efforts for weaving a saree. It<br />

depends on the variety also.<br />

Process of dyeing to<br />

design<br />

Dyeing<br />

The first process in<br />

manufacturing handloom<br />

weaving is, dyeing the silk<br />

yarn. The dyeing process<br />

is done in boiling water by<br />

mixing the color and dipping<br />

the silk yarn in it. While<br />

dyeing, higher the boiling<br />

temperature the more will<br />

be durability of the color.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JANUARY <strong>2016</strong>


Coloring<br />

is the<br />

crucial step<br />

in handloom<br />

silk. The main<br />

thing we have to<br />

keep in mind is that<br />

while dyeing the color<br />

should be equally spread on<br />

the silk yarn. Different shade of<br />

color can degrade the quality<br />

of the saree. After dyeing it has<br />

to be dried in the shade (do not<br />

dry in the sun).<br />

Weaving<br />

The second step after dyeing<br />

is weaving. After drying the<br />

thread in a shade roll down<br />

it over a round beam. Make<br />

sure that while rolling over the<br />

thread it should not become<br />

knotted, so do it carefully. A<br />

Weaver can make 30 sarees<br />

from one beam of warp. It<br />

will take 40 to 45 days to<br />

complete weaving of one beam.<br />

Narayanpet handloom sarees<br />

are traditionally woven in the<br />

interlocked-weft technique.<br />

is fixed at the top of the loom.<br />

There will be needles in the<br />

Powerful ethnic group to be<br />

The Ezhavas are community<br />

of India with the origin in<br />

Kerala, India. They are<br />

also called as Ilhava, Irava,<br />

Izhava and Erava in South<br />

Kerala; Chovas, Chokons<br />

and Chogons in Central<br />

Travancore; and Thiyyas,<br />

Tiyyas and Theeyas in the<br />

Malabar region. Ezhavas<br />

form the vast ethnic group of<br />

Kerala. Their pride as well as<br />

ethnic identity was retained<br />

by them and rose above<br />

adversity.<br />

Ezhavas were agricultural<br />

laborers, toddy tappers,<br />

small cultivators and liquor<br />

businessmen, and few<br />

were involved in weaving<br />

and practicing ayurveda.<br />

Izhathu Mannanars, a<br />

Ezhava dynasty also existed<br />

in Kerala. The Chekava is<br />

a warrior section within the<br />

community. Chekava used<br />

to be a part of the militias of<br />

local chieftains and kings.<br />

Chekavars also yielded<br />

to share common heritage<br />

on similarities between<br />

most of their customs.<br />

Especially, the customs<br />

practiced in common like<br />

those belonging to childbirth,<br />

death, matrilineal practices<br />

and martial history. Through<br />

old writings, oral history, and<br />

folk songs, it is suggested<br />

that the Ezhavas were part<br />

of the armed forces in the<br />

past, serving various kings.<br />

18<br />

According to a theory<br />

proposed for the origins<br />

caste system origin in<br />

Kerala, based on actions<br />

of Aryan Jains before 8thcentury<br />

AD. Jains recruited<br />

few sympathetic local people<br />

for their protection, while<br />

those who are not protectors<br />

were classed as out-caste.<br />

As per the description from<br />

Pullapilly, the protectors<br />

were given kshatriya<br />

functions with shudra<br />

status, and thereby Nairs<br />

originated. While Ezhavas,<br />

who were not among the<br />

protector groups became<br />

out-castes.<br />

As per an alternate theory,<br />

the Nambudiri Brahmins<br />

introduced the system.<br />

From around the 8thcentury,<br />

Brahmins acted<br />

as counselors, priets and<br />

ministers to invading Aryan<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JANUARY <strong>2016</strong>


Ezhavas established their own<br />

schools. Britishers encouraged<br />

them and even admitted them into “civil service in Malabar.<br />

princes. During the period,<br />

missionaries converted nonaboriginal<br />

local population<br />

to Buddhism. Symbiotic<br />

relationship was used by<br />

Brahmins with the invading<br />

forces to assert beliefs<br />

as well as position. The<br />

Ezhavas’ Buddhist tradition<br />

besides the refusal to give<br />

it up, made them out-caste<br />

within the greater Brahminic<br />

society. Even now, Ezhavas<br />

show greater interest in nonritualistic,<br />

moral, and nondogmatic<br />

aspects of religion.<br />

Culture of Ezhavas includes<br />

Aivar kali, Arjuna Nrtam<br />

(Mayilppili Tukkam),<br />

Makachuttu, Poorakkali,<br />

Teyyam (Teyyattam) or<br />

Kaliyattam. Aivar kali, also<br />

known as Pandavarkali,<br />

was a ritualistic art form<br />

and it means the play of the<br />

five sets. A ritual art Arjuna<br />

Nrtam or Mayilppili Tukkam<br />

is performed by Ezhava<br />

community men and is<br />

prevalent in the Bhagavathy<br />

temples of south Kerala,<br />

mainly in Kollam, Alappuzha<br />

and Kottayam districts.<br />

Makachuttu art is even<br />

popular among Ezhavas.<br />

A folk dance Poorakkali<br />

was even prevalent among<br />

the Ezhavas of Malabar. In<br />

northern Kerala, Teyyam is a<br />

popular ritual dance.<br />

Ezhavas established their<br />

own schools. Britishers<br />

encouraged them and even<br />

admitted them into civil<br />

service in Malabar. Most<br />

of them sought progress<br />

through political parties<br />

and now they are hardcore<br />

supporters of the Marxist<br />

parties in the state. Today,<br />

Ezhavas are powerful ethnic<br />

group to be reckoned with in<br />

Kerala.<br />

stories about their origin<br />

are, the ancestors of Dhar<br />

community were Jews because<br />

many people of Dhar surname<br />

they are the descendent of one<br />

and Balarama in Vrindavana.<br />

STORY FOR KIDS<br />

26<br />

While being naughty Krishna<br />

always kept an innocent look,<br />

which has stolen the hearts<br />

of everybody. There are<br />

many interesting stories on<br />

the life of Sri Krishna. One<br />

such interesting story is of Sri<br />

Krishna being a Butter thief.<br />

In every household in<br />

Vrindavana, yogurt and<br />

butter were stocked in pots<br />

and hanged high up. Krishna<br />

and Balarama would pile<br />

up the planks, so that they<br />

could reach the pots and pick<br />

holes in the pots so that the<br />

contents would leak out and<br />

they could drink it. This was a<br />

common means for stealing<br />

butter and milk. When the<br />

butter and milk were kept in<br />

a dark room, Krishna and<br />

Balarama would go there and<br />

make the place bright with<br />

the valuable jewels and steal<br />

the milk and butter. On the<br />

whole, Krishna and Balarama<br />

engaged in stealing butter and<br />

milk from the neighbourhood<br />

houses also in many ways.<br />

All the gopi are friends of<br />

Yasoda and Rohini and<br />

enjoyed the naughty childish<br />

activities of Krishna and<br />

Balarama in Vrindavana.<br />

In order to enjoy further<br />

transcendental bliss, they<br />

all assembled and went to<br />

mother Yasoda to lodge<br />

complaints against the<br />

restless boys. When Krishna<br />

was sitting before mother<br />

Yasoda, all the elder gopis<br />

began to lodge complaints<br />

against Him so that Krishna<br />

could hear. They said, “Dear<br />

Yasoda, why don’t you restrict<br />

your naughty Krishna? He<br />

comes to our houses along<br />

with Balarama every morning<br />

and evening, and before<br />

the milking of the cows they<br />

let loose the calves and the<br />

calves drink all the milk of<br />

the cows. So when we go<br />

to milk the cows, we find no<br />

milk, and we have to return<br />

with empty pots. If we warn<br />

Krishna and Balarama about<br />

doing this, they simply smile<br />

so charmingly that we cannot<br />

do anything. Also, your<br />

Krishna and Balarama find<br />

great pleasure in stealing our<br />

stock of yogurt and butter<br />

from wherever we keep it.<br />

When Krishna and Balarama<br />

are caught stealing the yogurt<br />

and butter, They say, ‘Why do<br />

you charge us with stealing?<br />

Do you think that butter and<br />

yogurt are in scarcity in our<br />

house?’<br />

Sometimes They steal butter,<br />

yogurt and milk and distribute<br />

them to the monkeys. When<br />

the monkeys are well fed and<br />

do not take any more, then<br />

your boys chide, ‘This milk<br />

and butter and yogurt are<br />

useless—even the monkeys<br />

won’t take it.’ And They break<br />

the pots and throw them<br />

hither and thither. If we keep<br />

our stock of yogurt, butter and<br />

milk in a solitary dark place,<br />

your Krishna and Balarama<br />

find it in the darkness by<br />

the glaring effulgence of the<br />

ornaments and jewels. If by<br />

chance they cannot find the<br />

hidden butter and yogurt,<br />

they go to our little babies<br />

and pinch them so that they<br />

cry, and then go away. If out<br />

of fear of these naughty boys<br />

we keep our stock of butter<br />

and yogurt high on the ceiling,<br />

although it is beyond their<br />

reach, they arrange to reach<br />

it by piling all kinds of wooden<br />

planks over the grinding<br />

machine. And if they cannot<br />

reach, they make a hole in<br />

the pot. We think therefore<br />

that you’d better take all the<br />

jeweled ornaments from the<br />

bodies of your children.”<br />

On hearing this, Yasoda<br />

would say, “All right, I will take<br />

all the jewels from Krishna so<br />

that he cannot see the butter<br />

hidden in the darkness.”<br />

Then the gopis would say,<br />

“No, no, don’t do this. What<br />

good will you do by taking<br />

away the jewels? We do<br />

not know what kind of boys<br />

these are, but even without<br />

ornaments they spread some<br />

kind of effulgence so that<br />

even in darkness they can<br />

see everything.” Then mother<br />

Yasoda would inform them,<br />

“All right, keep your butter<br />

and yogurt carefully so that<br />

they may not reach it.” In<br />

reply to this, the gopis said,<br />

“Yes, actually we do so, but<br />

because we are sometimes<br />

engaged in our household<br />

duties, these naughty boys<br />

enter our house somehow or<br />

other and spoil everything.<br />

Sometimes, being unable to<br />

steal our butter and yogurt,<br />

out of anger they pass<br />

Food that<br />

your kid<br />

Kids are very much moody and choosy about<br />

food. Every mummy faces this problem and have a<br />

complaint about that their kid do not eat properly.<br />

Kids are very much fond of snacks and shakes. So, try<br />

to mix the nutrition and snacks in one recipe so that<br />

it will be easy to eat with full mood. For this, you do<br />

not have to run after them and put every spoon in<br />

their mouth to give them proper diet. Here are some<br />

food stuff that your kid will like.<br />

Sweet Potato<br />

Sweet potatoes are rich in Vitamin A that keeps your eyes healthy<br />

and also acts like an antioxidant in the body. Sweet potatoes are<br />

a favorite of babies, because of their natural sweetness and bright<br />

color.<br />

Procedure<br />

* Simply wash, pierce with a fork<br />

* Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until<br />

tender.<br />

* Serve like a baked potato topped with<br />

cinnamon-sugar and vanilla yogurt.<br />

* Apple sauce or a drizzle of maple syrup also<br />

makes good toppings.<br />

* If you are a mashed potato lover, then try Two-Potato<br />

Mash<br />

Yogurt<br />

Getting plenty of good bacteria, also known as probiotics, is key<br />

to keeping little stomachs happy and healthy and yogurt is a great<br />

source of this bacteria. Limit sugary versions at kids, because these<br />

are often lower in protein and good bacteria.<br />

Procedure<br />

* Choose plain non-fat or low-fat yogurt or Greek<br />

yogurt<br />

* Dress them up with a spoonful of honey and<br />

sprinkling of fresh fruit.<br />

* Don’t forget too that a cup of yogurt counts<br />

towards your child’s daily dairy servings.<br />

* Most yogurts actually have more calcium than a<br />

cup of milk.<br />

* Kids will love to assemble their own Blueberry and<br />

Maple-Pecan Parfaits.<br />

Mango<br />

One cup of this sweet tropical fruit provides almost a whole day’s<br />

supply of Vitamin C which helps to keep kids’ immune systems<br />

running strong and keeps teeth and gums healthy. It also<br />

provides 3 grams of fiber for just around 100 calories.<br />

Want a fun way to cool your kids off and provide a<br />

nutritious snack?<br />

Procedure<br />

30<br />

* Buy fresh or jarred in juice to serve cut up or in<br />

a smoothie or dessert<br />

* Puree peeled cubes of mango in a food processor<br />

or blender.<br />

* Pour into popsicle molds or ice cube trays and freeze.<br />

* In a few hours, you’ve got frozen mango pops!<br />

Start kids on avocado early since fat<br />

intake is particularly important in the<br />

early years. In fact, ripe avocado is a<br />

perfect baby food spooned straight out<br />

of its peel.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JANUARY <strong>2016</strong>


Salmon<br />

If salmon isn’t a food you would think to serve to your child, then<br />

you might want to reconsider this pink fish. Wild salmon is an<br />

excellent source of high-quality protein, which children need for<br />

proper growth as well as those Omega-3 fatty acids that are<br />

essential for brain development and heart health.<br />

Procedure<br />

* Place salmon, mustard, and rind in a food<br />

processor and process until smooth.<br />

* Cover and chill until ready to grill.<br />

* Combine arugula, onion, juice, and oil in a<br />

medium bowl. Set aside.<br />

* Lightly coat both sides of burgers with cooking<br />

spray. Place patties on a grill rack; grill 2 minutes.<br />

* Now put salmon inside the burger and onion mixture<br />

and salmon is ready to eatPecan Parfaits.<br />

Avocado<br />

Avocado is full of monounsaturated fats, the “good” fats that kids<br />

actually need in their diet every day. In fact, it’s recommended that<br />

25 to 35% of kid’s calories come from fats, primarily the<br />

unsaturated ones. So how do you get your child to eat this<br />

creamy green fruit? We’ve found avocado goes over<br />

well with kids when served as a spread on wraps in<br />

place of mayonnaise or cream cheese.<br />

Procedure<br />

* Ripe avocado should mash easily with a fork.<br />

* Mix in a dash of lemon juice and salt, and you’ve<br />

got a tasty spread or dip.<br />

nri Immigration<br />

India students<br />

to benefit from new<br />

Immigration rules<br />

36<br />

UK chancellor of the exchequer George Osborne’s<br />

recent announcement in his Autumn Statement<br />

that foreign non-European Union students could be<br />

excluded from official migration figures, has been<br />

welcomed by education experts.<br />

f this proposal<br />

is implemented,<br />

overseas students,<br />

including those<br />

from India, will not<br />

be included in the<br />

overall migration<br />

statistics.<br />

Keith Burnett, vice chancellor<br />

of the University of Sheffield,<br />

welcomed this proposal<br />

and said, “The drop in the<br />

number of Indian students<br />

has had university leaders<br />

extremely concerned for<br />

a long time. The proposal<br />

will rightly go some way<br />

in reassuring India that,<br />

aside from world-class<br />

teaching and facilities, the<br />

UK will recognise her huge<br />

academic and cultural<br />

contribution to this country.”<br />

Karan Bilimoria, member<br />

of the House of Lords and<br />

founder Cobra Beer, too,<br />

welcomed the Osborne’s<br />

announcement. “The<br />

announcement by Osborne<br />

is extremely positive. I have<br />

been saying for many years<br />

that the government should<br />

set targets to increase the<br />

number of international<br />

students entering the UK<br />

and, finally, the chancellor<br />

has listened and set a target<br />

of a 55,000 increase in the<br />

number of international<br />

students by 2019-2020.<br />

The statement will certainly<br />

encourage Indian students<br />

to come to the UK and<br />

hopefully arrest the decline,”<br />

he told.<br />

“I hope that the UK<br />

government will target<br />

prospective Indian students<br />

with its policy initiatives, for<br />

example by reintroducing<br />

a post-study work visa for<br />

foreign students, including<br />

Indian students, which were<br />

in place before the previous<br />

government changed it.<br />

Indian students are one of<br />

the largest foreign student<br />

communities in British<br />

universities and have a great<br />

deal to offer,” he said.<br />

According to research<br />

from mayor Johnson’s<br />

promotional agency London<br />

and Partners, London<br />

attracts 100,000 international<br />

students every year, more<br />

than any other city in the<br />

world. These students<br />

contribute £3 billion to the<br />

capital’s economy and help<br />

support 37,000 jobs.<br />

Mayor London, Boris<br />

Johnson had proposed new<br />

measures to help the city<br />

retain its position as the<br />

education capital of the world<br />

and arrest the sharp decline<br />

in the number of Indian<br />

students who went there to<br />

study.<br />

Johnson has put forward<br />

to the UK government two<br />

policy options on work<br />

opportunities following<br />

graduation, which will<br />

be attractive to students<br />

from India and other<br />

countries. These include<br />

a Commonwealth work<br />

visa for up to two years,<br />

which would be with India,<br />

in the first instance, but<br />

could be extended to other<br />

Commonwealth countries,<br />

if successful. The second<br />

proposal is of a work visa<br />

for graduates in science,<br />

technology, engineering and<br />

maths (STEM) for up to two<br />

years.<br />

India is the third-largest<br />

international student market<br />

in London after China and<br />

America. The demand for<br />

higher education is growing,<br />

due to India’s economic<br />

growth and the expansion of<br />

“<br />

As a conservative who truly cares about<br />

religious liberty, Donald Trump’s bad idea and<br />

rhetoric send a shiver down my spine<br />

“<br />

life,” Trump said in the<br />

statement.<br />

Trump supporters cheered<br />

and shouted in support as he<br />

read the statement. Trump<br />

warned during his speech<br />

that without drastic action,<br />

the threat of attacks is “going<br />

to get worse and worse.”<br />

“Donald Trump is unhinged,”<br />

Jeb Bush said via Twitter.<br />

“His ‘policy’ proposals are<br />

not serious.”<br />

Carly Fiorina said: “Trump’s<br />

overreaction is as dangerous<br />

as President Obama’s underreaction.”<br />

John Kasich slammed<br />

Trump’s “outrageous<br />

“We’re entering into the<br />

said. “It should be disturbing<br />

not only to American-<br />

Muslims, but it should be<br />

disturbing to all Americans<br />

that the leading Republican<br />

presidential candidate would<br />

issue essentially a fascist<br />

statement like this,” he said.<br />

Trump’s campaign manager<br />

Corey Lewandowski said<br />

that, Trump’s proposed ban<br />

would apply to “everybody,”<br />

including Muslims seeking<br />

immigration visas and<br />

tourists seeking to enter the<br />

country.<br />

Bernie Sanders of the<br />

Democratic presidential<br />

campaign said “Trump<br />

and others want us to hate<br />

all Muslims” and Hillary<br />

Clinton called the proposal<br />

“reprehensible, prejudiced<br />

and divisive.”<br />

On Capitol Hill, Republican<br />

Sen. John McCain, of<br />

Arizona, said: “It’s just<br />

foolish.” “I have no idea,”<br />

McCain said. “I thought long<br />

ago that things he said would<br />

hurt his prospects, and he<br />

Congress party. Earlier,<br />

the amount was given as a<br />

Four complainant witnesses<br />

were examined by the Delhi court<br />

during the pre-summoning stage,<br />

including Subramanian Swamy,<br />

summoned Sonia Gandhi, Rahul<br />

Gandhi, Motilal Vora, Oscar<br />

Fernandes, Suman Dubey<br />

and Sam Pitroda. Metropolitan<br />

Magistrate Gomati Manocha said<br />

while summoning them that, “from<br />

the complaint and the evidence<br />

so far, it appears that YI was<br />

in fact created as a sham or a<br />

cloak to convert public money to<br />

personal use in order to acquire<br />

control over Rs 2,000 crore worth<br />

of assets of AJL.”<br />

It was noted by the court that all<br />

accused persons had allegedly<br />

was “merely a commercial<br />

transaction” without any<br />

illegality. Objections were<br />

raised against Swamy’<br />

complaints by Congress,<br />

labeling them as “politically<br />

motivated”.<br />

acted “in consortium with<br />

each other to achieve the<br />

said nefarious purpose/<br />

design”. Court also noted<br />

that the case is still in the<br />

summoning stage only<br />

and the accused persons<br />

“shall be at liberty to refute<br />

the allegations of the<br />

complainant, cross-examine<br />

the complainant’s witnesses,<br />

and to lead evidence in their<br />

defence”, when they appear<br />

before the court.<br />

The accused was asked<br />

by the trial court to appear<br />

before it on 7 August 7<br />

2014. On 30 July 2014, the<br />

Congress leaders moved the<br />

High Court which stayed the<br />

summons.<br />

The claims from the<br />

Congress were that the aim<br />

behind the creation of YIL<br />

was charity, but there were<br />

no profits. The transaction<br />

The HC judgment noted that<br />

the “probity of the legendary<br />

national political party”<br />

was “at stake” in the case,<br />

because the trust funds<br />

were held by the party’s<br />

officebearers. Dismissing<br />

the appeals filed by the<br />

Congress leaders, the<br />

Bench observed that prima<br />

facie the case “evidenced<br />

criminality”.<br />

The questions raised by<br />

the court were concerned<br />

about how legal is the<br />

grant of initial loan by<br />

Congress party to AJL. It<br />

was noted that Congress’<br />

officebearers were AJL<br />

directors as well as majority<br />

shareholders at YIL. Other<br />

AJL shareholders were not<br />

involved in all decisions<br />

that “locus standi cannot<br />

FREEDOM FIGHTER<br />

Subramanya<br />

Bharati<br />

If a poetry could speak, it could not stop<br />

from saying about Subramanya Bharathi,<br />

who had brought a fame to it.<br />

B62<br />

While the world knows<br />

about many famous Indian<br />

personalities, there are many<br />

more people, who are forced<br />

to go back into the dark,<br />

from knowing to the public.<br />

One such personality, which<br />

the world rarely knows, is<br />

Subramanya Bharati.<br />

During the pre-independence<br />

era, Subramanya Bharati<br />

was a Tamil poet, reformer<br />

and freedom fighter. He used<br />

the poetry and also prose,<br />

to the best he can, to inspire<br />

and educate the masses<br />

in the south, to join the<br />

independence movement.<br />

Early life<br />

On 11 December 1882,<br />

Subramanya Bharati was<br />

born in Ettayapuram, a small<br />

town in Thoothukudi district<br />

in Tamilnadu state. Along<br />

with pursuing the education<br />

at local high school called<br />

The M.D.T. Hindu College<br />

in Tirunelveli, Bharathi even<br />

showed a special interest in<br />

music and even learn poetry,<br />

just at the age of 11.<br />

He lost his mother at the age<br />

of five and his father at the<br />

age of 16. He married at the<br />

age of 14, to a seven year<br />

Chellama.<br />

Bharathi as a title<br />

For his incredible<br />

performance in poetry, he<br />

was conferred with the title<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JANUARY <strong>2016</strong>


Tips for<br />

Rocking<br />

Married life<br />

Are you married and looking tips to<br />

enjoy the married life? After marriage,<br />

it becomes necessary to make your life<br />

enjoyable as well as romantic. When<br />

come in contact with your partner, you<br />

get a chance to know about them and<br />

make your life romantic.<br />

JANUARY <strong>2016</strong> | WWW.WISHESH.COM


Relationship<br />

Tips for rocking married life<br />

1. Know that the romance and<br />

passion of the early days will sooner<br />

or later fizzle out. Instead of moping<br />

for that lost passion, recall the early days of<br />

your dating / courtship / wooing / chasing.<br />

72<br />

2. True, you are now man and<br />

wife, but you don’t need to merge<br />

your individual identities. If before<br />

marriage you were fond of wearing skirts,<br />

or playing a game of cricket with the boys,<br />

you don’t need to give that up just because<br />

you’re married.<br />

3. While giving space to each<br />

other is vital, make sure that<br />

communication never ceases. Any<br />

lull in communication can be potentially<br />

dangerous. So, have periods of silences,<br />

but fill each other in when you catch up.<br />

4. Fights between couples are<br />

normal, but so is making up. Scream,<br />

holler, have it all out, but once you’re<br />

over and done with, remember to not let the<br />

sun go down on your fight. Make up before<br />

the day is out.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JANUARY <strong>2016</strong>


5. Respect each other’s weaknesses<br />

and sensitive points. If he can’t bear<br />

to hear any criticism about his mother<br />

and she can’t stand her unsuccessful<br />

attempts at losing weight being made fun of,<br />

know how to steer clear of those.<br />

6. While most people do feel thankful<br />

towards their partners, very few actually<br />

express it verbally. According to studies,<br />

people who felt appreciated by their partners<br />

for their efforts, experience less resentment<br />

and more satisfaction in their relationship.<br />

Couples who appreciate each other have<br />

higher chances of having a successful<br />

marriage than those who don’t. A generous<br />

dose of compliments is a big ego booster and<br />

can do wonders for your relationship.<br />

7. Find a thing that you enjoy doing<br />

together and make time to do them.<br />

Exercise together, go on walks,<br />

or take on mutually enjoyable projects<br />

together. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long<br />

as you both have fun doing it. Spending<br />

time together enjoying each other’s<br />

company, all will strengthen your happy<br />

marriage and add another meaningful<br />

dimension to your relationship.<br />

8. Don’t go through your partner’s<br />

things out of curiosity or in an effort<br />

to check up on them. We all want our<br />

privacy to be respected and when someone<br />

violates that, it feels offensive. Don’t let a<br />

sense of insecurity cause you to become<br />

overly suspicious of your mate. On the other<br />

hand, being secretive can create suspicion.<br />

A happy marriage should be built on open<br />

and honest communication. So, if there is<br />

something you need to know, ask, don’t<br />

snoop.<br />

Romance<br />

Need not master it<br />

You need not be a master in romancing your<br />

girl, just simple romantic approaches can bring a<br />

lot of changes between the couple.<br />

JANUARY <strong>2016</strong> | WWW.WISHESH.COM


Love & Romance<br />

76<br />

But if you<br />

don’t know<br />

those simple<br />

approaches, you<br />

should surely<br />

think upon it.<br />

Being a good<br />

friend of all my<br />

readers, I do<br />

not want my<br />

people to face<br />

that problem. So I<br />

am suggestinag<br />

you five of such<br />

simple romantic<br />

approaches<br />

below.<br />

When she really wants to move<br />

out with you and you are in<br />

no mood of going out, as you<br />

had the worst situations in<br />

the office, explain her well, in<br />

a cool manner. The love you<br />

show, while smoothly rejecting<br />

her request, would make her<br />

rub on your hair and say, “It’s<br />

ok buddy, what is there in<br />

going out, even I do not feel to<br />

breath bad air outside now.”<br />

The reason behind these<br />

words are to manage you, so<br />

that you are not hurt, thinking<br />

that your girl was hurt, after<br />

you rejected her request. She<br />

thus puts you in a comfort zone<br />

and even thinks twice before<br />

asking you, next time.<br />

1. Not big, remember<br />

small days<br />

Remembering and wishing on<br />

marriage anniversaries and<br />

birthdays, is something which<br />

everyone does. But remember,<br />

you are the only special person<br />

to your girl, in her life.<br />

When you are so special, why<br />

not surprise her remembering,<br />

some special days like, the<br />

day you kissed her for the first<br />

time or the day she proposed<br />

you or to get much deeper,<br />

the day you ate her cooked<br />

meal for the first time and so.<br />

Remembering these days, is<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JANUARY <strong>2016</strong><br />

not every husband does in this<br />

busy life.<br />

But you prove that being busy<br />

is not an exception to show<br />

love. Remembering such<br />

minute things like these, will<br />

make her think that you care<br />

about her so much and thus,<br />

she never minds, even though<br />

you are busy in normal days.<br />

2. She makes you<br />

comfortable, even<br />

you reject<br />

3. Not technical,<br />

mutual<br />

understanding is<br />

important<br />

May be your girl could not<br />

understand your problems in<br />

your office and few technical<br />

issues might be out of the<br />

question, of her brain. But even<br />

then, if you share those things,<br />

at the end of the day, she<br />

starts thinking that, you care<br />

about her so much, that you do<br />

not hide anything from her and<br />

tells everything, even though,<br />

she is not able to understand<br />

anything.


4. Physical touch is<br />

never over ruled<br />

How long does a simple<br />

kiss take? A few fraction of<br />

seconds right? Taking out<br />

such fractions, even in your<br />

busy schedule, especially<br />

while going to office on a busy<br />

morning, is another good<br />

method, to boost up your<br />

romantic life with your partner.<br />

No one could deny the fact<br />

that, physical touch produces<br />

several magics, which are<br />

required to strengthen a<br />

relation. So, remember, a<br />

simple hug and a light kiss,<br />

can bring out the changes, you<br />

cannot afford to miss.<br />

5. Weekend is the<br />

best time to prove<br />

yourself<br />

You know the pressure she<br />

took, in cooking for you,<br />

making you everything handy,<br />

without making you struggle<br />

to move in your house, here<br />

and there. When she did it for<br />

6 days in a week. Can’t you do<br />

the same in one day?<br />

May be you are not a master<br />

in cooking or in several other<br />

things she does throughout<br />

the weekdays. But remember,<br />

love does not need masters or<br />

perfectionists. It is your efforts<br />

to impress your girl, that really<br />

mean a lot to her.<br />

Follow the above tips and<br />

you would not find much time,<br />

to feel the change in your<br />

romantic life.<br />

The Honda’s CB Hornet 160R, BS-IV<br />

compliant bike comes in two variants<br />

Single Disc & Dual Disc with CBS and marks<br />

the 15th bike model from the Japanese<br />

company’s stable this year in the country.<br />

Keita Muramastsu, president<br />

& ceo of HMSI said,”Honda<br />

is proud to announce that<br />

CB Hornet 160R is the first<br />

motorcycle in its category to<br />

meet BS-IV norms, well ahead<br />

of April 2017-regulation.” “The<br />

CB Hornet 160R is a faster,<br />

smarter, sportier machine for<br />

the youth,” he said, adding,<br />

that the model was keenly<br />

awaited ever since it was<br />

showcased in August 2015 at<br />

Honda RevFest. With this, we<br />

have delivered on our promise<br />

of revitalising our product<br />

portfolio with 15 new products<br />

180cc segment, which has<br />

been gaining traction of late.<br />

Guleria said, “It were down<br />

because all warehouses<br />

got empty due to Diwali and<br />

Dhanteras sales. It takes 6 to<br />

7 days on an average from day<br />

of dispatch to the day of arrival<br />

at the dealership. If you see<br />

our October closing figure is<br />

the highest ever dispatch.”<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JANUARY <strong>2016</strong>


Indian Spiritual<br />

Anger is a state of mind that blows<br />

up when one’s ardent desires are<br />

frustrated by obstacles.<br />

Verse meaning<br />

Being freed from attachment,<br />

fear and anger, being fully<br />

absorbed in Me and taking<br />

refuge in Me, many, many<br />

persons in the past became<br />

purifled by knowledge of Meand<br />

thus they all attained<br />

transcendental love for Me.<br />

Commentary<br />

It is very difficult for a person<br />

who is materially inclined to<br />

understand the personal nature<br />

of the Supreme Absolute<br />

Truth. Generally, people who<br />

are attached to the bodily<br />

conception of life are so<br />

absorbed in materialism that it<br />

is almost impossible for them<br />

to understand that there is a<br />

transcendental body which is<br />

imperishable, full of knowledge<br />

and eternally blissful. In the<br />

materialistic concept, the body<br />

is perishable, full of ignorance<br />

and completely miserable.<br />

By completely renouncing<br />

passion, fear and anger and<br />

subsequently adoring the<br />

Supreme Lord, many attains<br />

moksa or liberation. Man-maya<br />

means complete abidance<br />

and refuge in the Lord in all<br />

situations.<br />

Passion is attachment to the<br />

opposite sex and children and<br />

family life. Fear is abhorrent<br />

of frightening situations due to<br />

lack of faith in God. Anger is<br />

a state of mind that blows up<br />

when one’s ardent desires are<br />

frustrated by obstacles.<br />

Knowledge and austerity are<br />

taught by the bonafide spiritual<br />

master and is the procedure<br />

for one to receive the divine<br />

grace of the Supreme Lord. As<br />

all activities of the Supreme<br />

Lord are sublimely eternal,<br />

the bestowal of this grace,<br />

whenever it is received<br />

indicates, that it is not newly<br />

inculcated, but is given<br />

eternally as well.<br />

KONARK FESTIVAL<br />

Konark, a small town in Puri district, Orissa, is<br />

famous for its sun temple, which is also called as<br />

the ‘Black Pagoda’, as it is built in the black granite.<br />

The temple is believed to be built, during the reign of<br />

Narasimhadeva 1 in the 13th century.<br />

TThe temple was designed<br />

as a gigantic chariot of the<br />

sun god, with the 12 pairs of<br />

ornamented wheels, pulled by<br />

7 horses. A few of the wheels<br />

are 3 meters wide. Among the<br />

seven horses, only six stand<br />

today.<br />

After an envoy of Jahangir<br />

desecrated the temple in the<br />

early 17th century, the temple<br />

was left isolated from the<br />

public.<br />

The Sun temple belongs to<br />

the Kalingan school of Indian<br />

temple architecture. The<br />

alignment of the Sun Temple is<br />

along the East-West direction.<br />

The audience hall called<br />

‘Orjagamohana’ still stands<br />

and the ruins of the temple<br />

are hidden in this place. The<br />

roof of the dance hall or ‘Natya<br />

Mandir’ has fallen off. It stands<br />

at the eastern end of the ruins<br />

on a raised platform.<br />

festival and expose their<br />

dancing skills. This is one<br />

great identification of this place<br />

Bajirao Mastani is not an everyday movie,<br />

one can watch in the theatre, in any season.<br />

The way, the historical characters Bajirao and<br />

Mastani portrayed on the screen and the lively<br />

performance of the lead roles, will surely give<br />

an edge of the seat experience.<br />

Bajirao has got a lot to do with the war and he<br />

equally cares his love Mastani. The same fact<br />

was dealt in the movie, and the problem Sanjay<br />

the magic of their earlier films, but showed<br />

a different version of emotions between the<br />

Bajirao Mastani<br />

Though the film<br />

dips at times, the<br />

first half of the<br />

movie has been<br />

impressive. The<br />

second half of<br />

the film has been<br />

quite boring<br />

throughout.<br />

Story :<br />

Bajirao Mastani is the story of King<br />

Peshwa Bajirao (Ranveer Singh)<br />

who has never been defeated in<br />

his life in all the 40 wars he has<br />

faced. He aims to conquer the<br />

whole country after his terrific<br />

performance. He falls in love with<br />

Mastani (Deepika Padukone)<br />

who is the daughter of King of<br />

Bundelkhand. Bajirao clashes<br />

with his mother (Tanvi Azmi) who<br />

opposes his inter caste marriage<br />

and also as Bajirao marries<br />

Kashibhai (Priyanka Chopra). The<br />

rest of the movie is how Bajirao<br />

wins his love towards Mastani and<br />

if he wins his dream of conquering<br />

the country. Watch Bajirao Mastani<br />

to know about the rest<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of the movie has<br />

been decent throughout with<br />

fresh and energetic performances<br />

from the lead actors Ranveer<br />

Singh and Deepika Padukone.<br />

The grand visuals and the lavish<br />

songs have been the major<br />

assets of the movie. Though the<br />

film dips at times, the first half of<br />

the movie has been impressive.<br />

The second half of the film has<br />

been quite boring throughout.<br />

The director concentrated much<br />

on the emotional content rather<br />

than on the action episodes. The<br />

warrior side of Bajirao has been<br />

completely neglected. The second<br />

half of the movie has been dragged<br />

completely and boring. The climax<br />

has been emotional and ends up<br />

on a decent note<br />

Final Word:<br />

Bajirao Mastani is a film that has<br />

been high on technical values but<br />

the second half of the movie lacked<br />

proper narration which makes the<br />

film just ok.<br />

Dilwale<br />

122<br />

Story :<br />

Dilwale is a<br />

wholesome<br />

entertainer that<br />

can be watched<br />

with your entire<br />

family. Sharukh<br />

and Kajol at their<br />

best.<br />

Dilwale starts with a scene where<br />

both brothers Shah Rukh Khan<br />

and Varun Dhawan are in their late<br />

twenties. Raj (SRK) and Meera<br />

(Kajol) gets united after 15 years.<br />

But they both are from gangster<br />

families, who maintain a tough<br />

rivalry, with the opposite ones.<br />

Vinod Khanna and Kabir Bedi<br />

are the two gangsters. On the<br />

other hand, Veer (Varun) who is<br />

unaware of all the rivalries, family<br />

is involved, falls in love with Ishita<br />

(Kriti Sanon). Veer confesses<br />

his love for Ishita, in front of Raj<br />

and asks his support. It was then<br />

Raj reveals something which was<br />

hidden from Veer for a long time.<br />

Analysis :<br />

Expecting a new story in the<br />

present films, has already become<br />

out of question and Diwale is<br />

not an exception for it. But if you<br />

can observe well, you can relate<br />

to Rajinikanth’s Baasha movie.<br />

But it was managed well with<br />

the stylish screenplay. The story<br />

is similar to Baasha, it does not<br />

mean, that Dilwale is a serious<br />

subject. The movie has several<br />

comedy episodes, which are<br />

hilarious. Especially the pre-interval<br />

block gives the edge of the seat<br />

experience. No skin show can be<br />

expected from Kajol or Kriti Sanon.<br />

The movie is away from vulgarity<br />

and can still entertain all sections of<br />

audience.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Dilwale is a wholesome entertainer<br />

that can be watched with your<br />

entire family. Sharukh and Kajol at<br />

their best.<br />

the director could not<br />

make it big because<br />

of the screenplay<br />

which has never been<br />

gripping.<br />

Ravi Teja has been<br />

lean enough that<br />

the action episodes<br />

brought huge smiles<br />

than the comedy<br />

episodes.<br />

Story :<br />

Bengal Tiger is the story of Akash<br />

who aims a big future without<br />

taking much risk. He aims to<br />

become a celebrity and famous<br />

with his caliber and potential.<br />

Life changes when he hits the<br />

Agricultural Minister (Shiyaji<br />

Shindey) with a stone and his<br />

impressive thoughts change his<br />

life. He then moves to Home<br />

Minister Nagappa (Rao Ramesh)<br />

who makes him his personal<br />

security. Akash impresses<br />

Nagappa’s daughter Shradda<br />

(Rashi Khanna) big time and<br />

she falls for him. At this time<br />

Akash dreams of marrying Meera<br />

(Tamannah)<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of the movie has<br />

been thoroughly entertaining<br />

though the director misses the<br />

major logics. The entertainment<br />

impresses the audience completely<br />

and the songs have been shot<br />

well. Posani Krishna Murali and<br />

Prudhvi’s comedy connects well<br />

and fills the auditorium with huge<br />

laughs. The pre interval episodes<br />

have been predictable and on the<br />

whole the first half of the movie<br />

has been impressive enough for<br />

the audience. The second half of<br />

Bengal Tiger is the game changer<br />

and is crucial actually. But the<br />

director could not make it big<br />

because of the screenplay which<br />

has never been gripping<br />

Final Word:<br />

Bengal Tiger has an impressive<br />

first half but the movie falls flat<br />

because of the predictable and<br />

spoiled second half. Ravi Teja has<br />

been lean enough that the action<br />

episodes brought huge smiles than<br />

the comedy episodes.<br />

EVIEW<br />

KOLLYWOOD<br />

Thanga Magan<br />

126<br />

The first half of<br />

Thanga Magan<br />

has been high<br />

on entertainment<br />

and love making<br />

scenes. The songs<br />

of the movie and<br />

the narration about<br />

the characters<br />

have been taken<br />

huge care of.<br />

Story :<br />

Thanga Magan is about Thamiz<br />

(Dhanush) who is a fun going<br />

middle class guy. He falls in love<br />

with Sandy (Amy Jackson) and<br />

he ends up impressing her. After<br />

spending some quality time with<br />

her, he reveals about his love<br />

story to his parents (KS Ravikumar<br />

and Radhika Sarath Kumar) who<br />

rejects Sandy as she hails from<br />

a different community. Instead<br />

they get him married to Yamuna<br />

(Samantha) who comes from a<br />

simple and traditional family. The<br />

rest of the movie is how Thamiz<br />

transforms into a responsible man<br />

forgetting the bitter truths of Sandy.<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of Thanga Magan has<br />

been high on entertainment and<br />

love making scenes. The songs of<br />

the movie and the narration about<br />

the characters have been taken<br />

huge care of. The twist arises at<br />

the right time which brings a huge<br />

shock among the audience. On<br />

the whole the complete first half<br />

of Thanga Magan has been quite<br />

gripping and entertaining.<br />

The second half of Thanga Magan<br />

is completely a different story.<br />

The movie becomes quite serious<br />

throughout the film and the levels<br />

of entertainment come down<br />

completely.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Thanga Magan is a movie that<br />

has enough content to entertain<br />

the audience. Dhanush, Amy and<br />

Samantha tops the show.<br />

Star Gazing<br />

ARIES<br />

After the holidays, you are ready to redefine your purpose about career. Motivated,<br />

clear-minded, you know what you want and you will make it happen with all the energy<br />

you have thanks to Uranus in Aries. Open your eyes and ears and look for opportunities,<br />

they should happen fast, they are around. Venus in Sagittarius makes your love life fun and<br />

optimistic, you make tons of projects, some will happen and some will not, but who cares, just<br />

the fact of dreaming about them is strong enough to make you happy.<br />

132<br />

GEMINI<br />

Being in a relationship is your<br />

priority. If you are in a couple,<br />

you love spending quiet evenings<br />

together, no need to go out every<br />

night, you’d rather cuddle on a couch<br />

watching TV series. The weather is not<br />

encouraging to go out anyway. If you are<br />

single Lilith makes you see clearly when<br />

you are wasting your time in a relationship,<br />

so you are faster at getting rid of someone<br />

who does not match your expectations.<br />

CANCER<br />

You are all about commitment, you<br />

expect some answers from your<br />

partner and they better be clear.<br />

Making plans for the future matters to you in<br />

<strong>2016</strong>. Saturn in your health, beauty and form<br />

sector expect you to be disciplined about<br />

food and exercise, you need to pay attention<br />

and be more regular. Some family secrets<br />

are coming out and they may be some<br />

surprise. You prefer to know as your intuition<br />

was telling you something was wrong.<br />

TAURUS<br />

Sun, Mercury and Plutone<br />

encourage you to learn<br />

something new, a new language<br />

or technological skills or management<br />

or marketing. You want to progress<br />

professionally, your ambition is stronger<br />

than ever, thanks to Jupiter. You also<br />

want money, recognition is not enough<br />

for the earthy Taurus, and you are pretty<br />

materialistic and logical.<br />

LEO<br />

Venus is in your love sector until<br />

<strong>January</strong> 24 and it is a really good<br />

period to meet a new partner very<br />

different from what you like usually and fall<br />

madly in love. At work some new rules are<br />

not pleasant at first, you will get used to it<br />

after. You will welcome a new coworker and<br />

show how you can be nice and supportive.<br />

Brothers or sisters are important and you<br />

share a lot with them and it works both ways.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | JANUARY <strong>2016</strong>


VIRGO<br />

Jupiter and north node are in Virgo and you are taking some major decisions for<br />

your career. A big change of orientation can be expected or a job offer that makes<br />

you think a lot. You can take some risks, you are at the right level and Jupiter is a promise<br />

of expansion so you should jump of the opportunity. You meet people who will be important<br />

in your future, so open your eyes on the people coming into your life, they will be here for a<br />

long time, so you better let the good ones come closer to your first circle of intimacy<br />

SCORPIO<br />

Venus and Saturn are in your<br />

finance sector, time to think about<br />

budget: how much money do you<br />

need to live well? You start looking at your<br />

expenses and you see how you could cut<br />

some of them while keeping the same level<br />

of comfort. Some weekend are programmed<br />

and you are happy to have some getaways in<br />

mind, winter is less hard when you know you<br />

are going somewhere else.<br />

AQUARIUS<br />

Aquarius Horoscope <strong>2016</strong> predicts<br />

that this is an excellent time to<br />

build new social contacts and form<br />

new relationships. You are likely to be<br />

argumentative which may not help matters<br />

in your career. There is a need to go through<br />

minor details while executing projects.<br />

SAGITTARIUS<br />

Venus is in your sign until <strong>January</strong><br />

24, and it is good for your beauty and<br />

health. You take care of your body,<br />

skin and hair also. Working on your look is<br />

important for you in <strong>January</strong>, you explore<br />

your dressing room and see what you can<br />

wear and keep and what you can throw away<br />

or give. Single, you meet somebody who<br />

makes you really excited.<br />

CAPRICORN<br />

Sun, Mercury and Pluto make your<br />

inner life very intense, you think<br />

about who you are, what you want<br />

to change, what progress you could make<br />

to have a better life. Organization, time<br />

management are important to you and that<br />

is where you will put your efforts. Love is<br />

frustrating until the 24, don’t get angry or<br />

desperate as Venus will enter in Capricorn<br />

LIBRA<br />

Mars is leaving Libra <strong>January</strong> 4, you<br />

may lose a little level of energy and<br />

nervosity but you will be calmer and<br />

more focused. Pay attention to your budget<br />

it is time to balance it after Christmas. You<br />

have a protection at work and you find out<br />

about it, it is good to know that you have an<br />

appreciation and recognition of someone who<br />

knows how good you are at work. In case you<br />

want to have a promotion for example.<br />

PISCES<br />

Neptune and Jupiter are not well<br />

aligned this month and you keep<br />

adjusting to situations that are<br />

evolving all the time, and it is hard to control<br />

as it does not depend on you but on others<br />

or circumstances. You have to be very smart<br />

to find solutions to the problems that keep<br />

happening. If you are single, you could meet<br />

somebody at work and it is really charming<br />

but you have to be discreet.<br />
