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 ...

The threat of agroterrorism 11.11.2019
Describing real-life scenes from Bengal famine, Brigg's, a British United Press New Delhi correspondent in a newspaper in September 1942 wrote: "At least 150 people are dying daily in Calcutta from starvation and the accompanying diseases of cholera and dysentery, "In a sunrise walk, I found people dead on the pavement by the dozens. Thousands more may die before they gather the harvest in. I saw children with bloated, empty stomachs, mothers whose breasts had collapsed, men wailing the one word that means the unattainable - rice. I saw scenes of slow death." Crop diseases have been deemed to rival an Agro-terrorism event or military action and the example of Bengal brown spot disease of rice in India, in 1942-1943, serves as an illustration of how similar and devastating an Agro terror event could be if it were to be unleashed. Agro-terrorism is a deliberate introduction of an animal or plant disease with an aim to generate fear, cause economic losses, and/or undermine social ...

Health crisis in Delhi, is Bengaluru heading the same way? 7.11.2019
"Don"t you feel ashamed that flights are being diverted and citizens are not safe even in their homes?" The Supreme Court came down heavily on the state governments for their inability to curb stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana as air quality levels in Delhi hit dangerous lows.
