Exploring ancient American Indian culture 16.11.2019
On a cold snowy day in December 1888, two cowboys herding their cattle in the woods at the rim of the Mesa Verde Canyon, were in for a surprise. As they emerged from the woods, they looked across the deep canyon and saw within the opposite rim, a stunning, incredulous sight that they later described as "a magnificent city". What they had seen were the ruins of a multistoried structure, built on the cliffs, under the natural ceiling of a deep oval alcove in the mountains. News of their "discovery" soon spread, and excavation of "Cliff Palace", as the site was named, was started. It was a similar sense of awe and excitement that we too felt as we stood atop the gigantic plateau and gazed across the deep canyon at the ruins of Cliff Palace on the opposite rim, when we visited Mesa Verde last summer. Mesa Verde, Spanish for "Green Table", is a Plateau in southwestern United States, falling within the State of Colorado. It is part of a series of magnificent ...

Battle baldness, naturally 15.11.2019
With the change in season, a lot of men, and women too, go through hair thinning, hair fall and slow growth issues. Interestingly, premature balding is the biggest fear among men and upcoming movies like Bala and Ujda Chaman highlight this subject with a twist of humour. However, it"s not too funny when men spend hours worrying about hair fall and have absolutely no clue how to salvage the situation. As ironic as it is, taking stress about losing hair is the biggest reason for hair loss! So, have faith and trust in your treatment for the best results and aim for the best lifestyle to not incur such problems, suggests Supriya Arora Malik, founder of Indulgeo Essentials. She says that one of the major reasons for male patterned baldness is the lifestyle — like irregular eating habits, stress, and smoking. "It"s only fair to say that until and unless you don"t control the problem at the baseline, you can"t control it otherwise," says Supriya and adds, "To ...

Winds of climate change blow across South Asia 29.10.2019
The India-Pakistan enmity is possibly the world"s most intractable and obdurate, with a mutual misreading of history made extremely volatile with the brandishing of nuclear weapons. Despite having two giant militaries at each others" throats, the more immediate existential challenges that India and Pakistan face are related to how climate change and misuse of common natural resources have combined to confront both together. It is not the militaries which will determine our fates, but the degree of cooperation the two nations can summon. Our problems are common and perhaps India and Pakistan will find the good sense to act together? Looking at the climate change challenges Pakistan and India face together, collective action — as unlikely as it seems — may just be what is needed to secure the lives and livelihoods of future generations. According to climate researchers at Germanwatch, Pakistan ranks eighth on the Global Climate Risk Index, with over 145 catastrophic events — ...
