Beauty lies in the eyes of a beholder! How true this statement is as definition of beauty differs from person to person. We often here the term ‘natural beauty’; and what does this mean? It actually relates to the unadulterated beauty of a person. It is a woman without make-up.

Today, beauty has touched artificial levels. There are fewer and fewer people satisfied with how they look. The result being they opt for cosmetic surgery or then a closet full of beauty products. Very few women can be seen without layers of cream and make-up.

Beautifying the face with make-up is actually not a new concept. When you read Classical English literature you come across phrases like, ‘The lady is busy painting on her mask’. In fact one of the earliest finds of make-up was in the relics of the Indus Valley Civilization, where archaeologists found lipsticks and eye make-up.

In fact, make-up and other beauty products are regarded as an essential as the form a kind of a cocoon over the face, shielding it from the pollution and harmful rays of the sun. Sunscreens in fact is a must have for every age group. Even most lipsticks manufactured have moisturizers that prevent the lips from drying and cracking. Cosmetics such as rouge and eye-shadow do enhance one’s beauty if applied correctly.

However, beauty is defined as plastic when one goes for surgeries to correct the lips, nose, raise the cheekbone, plastic surgery, etc. Glamour queens in the modeling and acting industry, across the globe, have popularized these surgeries. While such ‘beauty enhancing’ methods do bring about magical results, they do have their own side effects. Many precautions are to be taken. It would not be going too far to say that life is not the same after a nose job.

While make-up and cosmetic surgeries enhance the face, there are other beautifying methods for the rest of the body such as silicon implantation for breasts, liposuction to reduce fat, colored lens for the eyes, hair color, body piercing and body tattooing, the list goes on and on…

How far can one go towards reaching the pinnacle of beauty depends on one’s desire. But then, Cleopatra was a beauty like none other and at an age when there were no provisions for artificial beauty enhancements. So, when going for any beauty rectifying therapy ask your mirror… How beautiful am I? ~ editor Karishma Bajaj. Copyright©Indianchild.com.2005

I clean house every other day.  Today is the other day.

If you write in the dust, please don’t date it!

I would cook dinner but I can’t find the can opener!

My house was clean last week, too bad you missed it!

I came, I saw, I decided to order take out.

If you don’t like my standards of cooking …lower your standards.
Although you’ll find our house a mess, Come in, sit down, converse. It doesn’t always look like this: Some days it’s even worse.

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand!
Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.
Countless number of people have eaten in this kitchen and gone on to lead normal lives.

My next house will have no kitchen …  just vending machines.

No husband has ever been shot while doing the dishes.

A husband is someone who takes out the trash and gives the impression he just cleaned the whole house.
Help keep the kitchen clean – eat out.

Diamond, Ruby and Emerald is a must have for every woman. While the diamond is the most expensive of the three; yet Ruby jewelry is not too light on the wallet. All three gems have been the favorite in the Indian royal heritage. The royal Indian jewelry that has been found, contains all these three gemstones in abundance. Ruby jewelry is further adorned with the use of pearls or diamonds. Ladies prefer to wear complete Ruby sets consisting of earrings, necklace and a ring. In spite of it being expensive, it is a considered a must have for most women.

Ruby is the birthstone for those born in the month of July and is the Zodiacal lucky charm for those born under the sun sign of Cancer. It is an ideal gift for those celebrating their 15th and 4th wedding anniversary. It is also considered lucky to wear Ruby jewelry on Tuesdays.

It is believed that those who wear Rubies are blessed with abundance of wealth and wonderful children are borne to them. The wearer is courageous and always happy as sorrow and pain is warded away by this gemstone. But, this is possible only if the Ruby is genuine, as on the other hand a defected red gemstone spells trouble. One of the most prominent defects one encounters is black color spread across the gem. According to Astrologers and Gemologists a dull red gemstone brings problems to the family and a Ruby that is more of a maroon shade or double-shaded brings problems to the parents. Another common defect is a spotted Ruby that can cause distress due to wounds.

One of the easiest methods of knowing the genuineness of a Ruby is by placing it in the sunlight. If the gemstone produces red rays then it is of superior quality. Another aspect of a superior Ruby is that if it is rubbed on a stone it does not lose any weight. On the other hand the inferior quality are dull, may have cracks or depressions, may lack in shine and maybe brittle.

In India, the Ruby has been glorified in several of its scriptures. It is know as the Ratnaraj or ‘King of Gemstones’ in the Sanskrit language. According to many, wearing this jewelry brings about passionate feelings of love, valor, strength and royalty. This red gemstone is also considered to be a symbol of liberty, generosity, self-respect and divine power.

Navratri is a Hindu festival celebrated for nine days worshipping the various forms of Durga. ‘Nav’ means nine and ‘ratri’ means night, thus the name meaning ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit.

It is celebrated five times a year – Vasanta Navaratri, Ashadha Navaratri, Sharada Navaratri and Poushya/Magha Navaratri. Of these, Sharada and Vasanta Navaratri are most important..

Vasanta Navaratri is the festival of nine days dedicated to the nine forms of Devi, in the spring season. Sharad Navaratri is the most important of the Navratris and often called ‘Maha Navratri’. It is called so since it is celebrated during Sharad, i.e. beginning of winters, sometime in October – November. The Chaitra Navratri culminates to Ram Navami and the Sharad Navratri in Durga Puja and Dussehra.

Celebrations:
The festival coincides with the end of the rainy season; considered auspicious as it is associated with the sprouting of new seeds, a sign of prosperity. Many people consider it the best time of the year to initiate something new in their personal or professional lives.

It is celebrated in different ways throughout the country. During these days the nine forms of Shakti – Durga, Bhadrakali, Amba, Annapurna, Sarvamangala, Bhairavi , Chandika or Chandi, Lalita, Bhavani and Mookambika are worshipped. Some people observe fasts for all the nine days. The festival ends on Mahanavami. On this day, ‘Kanya Puja’ is performed. Nine young girls representing the nine forms of Goddess Durga are worshipped. Their feet are washed and a puja is performed, at the end of which they are given food, traditionally consisting of pudi, chana and halwa. People who do not fast for all nine days do so on the 1st and 2nd or 1st and last or the last 2 days, since it is believed that the fasts have to be kept in pairs.

The nine days are divided into sets of three days, each dedicated to different Goddesses. The first three days are dedicated to Durga, also known as Kali, the Goddess of power. On the next three days Lakshmi, the Goddess of peace and prosperity is worshipped. The seventh and eighth days are dedicated to Saraswati, the Goddess of wisdom. Devotees believe that one needs the blessings of all the three to be successful in life.

Navratri is synonymous with Dandiya Rasa and Garba, the characteristic folk dances of Gujarat. Both men and women dress in traditional attires. Village girls bearing garbis (pots) on their heads go from house to house and perform dances. The garbi has a diya burning inside which signifies knowledge and the end of darkness. Dandiya-Rasa is performed mostly by men. They dance in concentric circles and beat the dandiya sticks in rhythm while performing.
Rituals across the country:
The last four days of Sharad Navratri are celebrated as Durga Puja in West Bengal. It is the most important festival in Bengal. Elaborately decorated clay idols of Goddess Durga depicting her slaying the demon Mahisasura are set up in temples. The idols are worshipped for five days and immersed in the river on the last day.

In North India the tenth day is celebrated as Dussehra, the festival which marks the triumph of ‘good over evil’. Ram Lilas portraying the story of Rama’s life are performed. Huge images of Ravana are burnt, depicting the end of evil.

In the Southern states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh the festival is known as Kolu, it is celebrated for ten days. Women decorate the houses with dolls and draw rangolis. Families gather to display traditional wooden dolls, sing songs and depict scenes from various epics. They also exchange sweets and gifts.

If Kerala is known for its scenic beauty and amazing backwaters, then it is also famous for churning out socially relevant movies. The language of the state of Kerala is Malayalam and movies made in the state are often in Malayalam language only. The most striking aspect about Malayalam cinema is that they are more realistic in nature and unlike popular Hindi cinemas; they are more prone to delivering social messages. One reason behind this phenomenon could be political landscape of the region that has affected the arts and culture of Kerala. The people of Kerala love to watch Malayalam movies and that explains its popularity in the region as well as in some countries where Malay expats are spread.

Going back to the history books, the first Malayalam cinema was ‘Vigathakumaran’ made in 1928. It was a silent movie that was well received by the people of the state. The first spoken cinema was ‘Balan’. Malayalam movies got a fresh lease of life with opening of its first studio Udaya. With the passage of time, Malayalam films have made a strong identity for themselves. During the initial period, the movies made in the region were hugely influenced by Tamil and Telugu cinemas but then the tide turned. Directors like Adoor Gopalakrishnan, G. Aravindan and Shaji Karun etc have contributed significantly in the global recognition of Malayalam cinema.

Malayalam cinema works in two layers of melodramatic themes and art cinema that has continued to grow. Movies made in the region are wonderful manifestation of deeply interwoven other pillars of culture such as literature, art and politics. 1950s witnessed first major Malayalam hit known as ‘Jeevithanauka’. The super success of this movie was followed by other classics like Neelakkuyil, Newspaper Boy and Chemmeen etc. 1970’s witnessed a socio-political change in Kerala. This period also saw huge interests of youths in movie making and Malayalam film songs. The movies became a powerful medium of self-expression.

Malayalam cinema kept growing strength by strength during 80’s, 90’s and in new millennium. The gap between commercial and art cinema slowly subsided and new technologies were incorporated in the film medium. Some of the most popular Malayalam actors are Mohanlal, Suresh Gopi and Mammootty. Malayalam cinemas are frequently shown at international film festivals.

Film Industry is perhaps the most glamorous industry. Though on surface, the job of a director/documentary film-maker seems full of glamour, hype and stardom but in reality, it is a highly challenging role. A documentary film maker is someone who directs or even produces the film. Documentary films are made for different mediums such as, motion picture, television, documentary, community projects and corporate training videos etc. A documentary film maker is responsible for converting the concept for a film project into a finished film. The idea could be of a small video, music video, advertisement or a full-fledged film. He does his job by assembling a cast and crew and picturing the sequences on specific locales. As far as budget of the film is concerned that depends upon the scale of the project. It could be in millions or could be few hundred dollars, depending who are the target audiences of the film.

An advertisement video or a mainstream movie can cost unheard of amounts but a movie for education purposes or for local clients do not require heavy investment. The job of a documentary film maker is very much technical in nature. He must be creative and brimming with ideas. A film maker or a director needs to have vision and should definitely have received specialized training in film making. Plenty of impressive courses are available for those who wish to pursue a career in film making. One can go for degree, diploma or certificate courses.

To become a documentary film maker in Britain, one must have an academic qualification in a media-related core subject. Ideally, one should have GCSEs in standard subjects followed by a BTEC in media studies. Furthermore, one can go for an HND in Media Production, which is the equivalent of the first two years of university study. This course is recognized everywhere and commands respect as well. Interested students can opt for a range of specializations of the core media production topic.

The job of a documentary film-maker can be quite stressful. If it’s a large project, he/she will need to handle hundreds of people and that is no mean task. A director needs to take care of all the minute details. This industry is extremely competitive and one must be ready to face odd challenges.

In India, the number of institutes offering training in documentary film-making is quite few. However, the quality of education is top-notch and one definitely gets to learn a lot.

The institutes are:-
Amrita School of Arts & Sciences, Kerala,
Amity School of Journalism and Communication, New Delhi
Editworks School of Mass Communication, Uttar Pradesh,
Anhad Institute of Media Studies, Jammu and Kashmir,
Asian Academy of Film and Television, Uttar Pradesh
Once the course has been completed, documentary film makers can work with educative television channels that cover reality films. One can also work with several NGOs in order to help them in conveying their thoughts and ideas to masses at large. Many documentary film makers prefer to work independently and follow their own creative instincts.
