New Delhi:  The recent report of NITI Aayog on groundwater level says 21 Indian cities including Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad  will run out of groundwater by 2020, affecting around 100 million people. It also says that 40 per cent of India's population will have no access to drinking water by 2030.The situation is alarming, given the fact that year 2020 is not very far. Three rivers, four water bodies, five wetlands and six forests have completely dried in Chennai despite having better water resources and rains than any other metro cities, the report said.

Washington: A recent study claims that more men go through plastic surgery to boost their confidence and improve physical appearance, in comparison to women. More than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men last year alone, representing a 29 per cent increase since 2000, reported a recent study of American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Plastic surgery for men consists of surgical and non-surgical body contouring and facial procedures that are typically performed in a single surgery. Due to this rising trend, plastic surgery is becoming a common Father's Day request as more men consider a surgical assist to enhance their physique and fend off the dad bod for a while longer. "Obviously, men don't go through the same physical changes that women experience during pregnancy and post-pregnancy, but their lifestyle does change, which can impact their appearance. Diet and exercise patterns fluctuate, and they don't sleep as much. Men notice their body changes due to ageing and ...
