Beauty marks its presence

November 30, 2018 08:07 am

A canvas devoid of any work, no matter how spotless the blank canvas is, isn’t art. Not even an art connoisseur can pass it off as anything but simply a boring piece of canvas. It is because it is untouched and thus has nothing to convey. A plain, spotless face is like that of a blank canvas, it can tell you no stories of days lived, hardships endured or laughs shared. But a face lined along the eyes tells you of times of laughter and joy. The lines along a mother’s mouth cries of hours she has spent nursing her ailing child. The swells of an old man’s wrinkles sing of a lifetime of memories, of love and friendship, of good times and bad, of hardship and hard work. Akin to a canvas, a marked face is one that has lived.

The unnoticed

October 26, 2018 09:00 am

There is a small world operating behind the scenes to keep the eco-system going and it goes unnoticed by the majority of us. The tiny world of insects and other organisms are the prime contributors to how wildlife and nature operate. As Jonas Salk, an American medical researcher and virologist, said “If all insects were to disappear from the earth within 50 years, all life on earth would end. If all human beings disappeared from the earth within 50 years, all life on earth would flourish.”

KATHMANDU, Oct 2: What do you think of when you hear the term ‘beauty pageant’?  The general image that comes to our minds is: conventionally beautiful women, wearing shiny gowns wrapped by sash and sparkling crowns made up of jewels in their heads. They have wide smiles on their faces, alongside glittery makeup, and they are walking with style, with their hands waving to the crowd.

Oct 1: People who suffer from the skin condition acne may suffer from the negative impact of perceived social stigma tied to their skin condition, according to a new study from the University of Limerick (UL) in Ireland.

You may have assumed that most major cosmetics companies were on board with alternatives to cruelty to animals, but there are some that still pay to poison and kill. It isn’t always easy to know which brands are completely cruelty-free. For instance, L’Oréal, which doesn’t test on animals in the United States, pays for deadly testing in China, where archaic and painful experiments on animals are required for cosmetics.

BHADRAPUR, Sept 27: The first three tourists entering Nepal from the eastern part of the country received a warm welcome marked by fanfare.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall

Beauty and body perfection have commonly been associated with women. The issue related to women body objectification and dissatisfaction has long been in discussion in Nepal. The conversation is obvious because traditional patriarchal ideology and gender roles have made women behave and want to look a certain way. But with the portrayal of ‘ideal’ male bodies in the media in the recent times, young men in Nepal too are suffering from body image issues. However, the conversation is lacking where men are concerned.

No limitation to beauty

August 18, 2018 08:19 am

Lazzana Goverdhan There I sat on a blue bench with my best friend chatting about yesterday’s daily soap episode. As we were discussing, two girls, who had come to talk about blood donation, interrupted us. They started by explaining the eligibility criteria of the donors. Nonetheless, I don’t know if it was slip of tongue or something else, but my friend’s chubby outlook urged the one of the girls to ask her to donate blood. My friend looked down in shame, but I stood up for her. I told them that it was rude to body-shame people. Every individual comes in different shapes and sizes and that we should learn to accept it. But the incident stirred me. Those two girls represent our times when everything is measured in small waistlines, perfect height, and weight. My best friend represent every individual who has been victimized by the notion of who the social definition of beauty. Everyone feels delighted when they’re told: “You’re beautiful.” These words actually mean that the person complimenting is attracted toward our external features. But we have been misinterpreting the phrase by evaluating it with a temporary standard of beauty. Its prominence is so evident that people follow strict diet plans to get into a perfect shape, or hide behind hazardous cosmetics. Some even starve to the point when they fall unconscious, or go as far as going under the knife for the desired look. Mankind has the tendency of labeling anyone who falls outside a specific set of specifications as ugly, or unattractive. I wonder how human beings, the most gifted creature on this planet, take pride in lowering someone else’s self-esteem. Being called ‘ugly’ brings people a sense of dissatisfaction toward themselves. This four lettered word is capable of leaving a fatal scar that will make people wonder their worth. In my opinion, no one should be damaged to the point where they start feeling worthless. We should start appreciating people just the way they are rather than trying to find someone else in them. Nature is the best definition of beauty. In nature, we see all kinds of trees and flowers. They might be tall, short, pink or blue but nobody judges nature to say: “Look! What a fat tree. The heavy weight doesn’t seem good on it” or “That flower is blue. It’s so cold”. Instead, we say: “What a beautiful tree!” and “Blue really is unique and beautiful among all those flowers”. Nature never classifies race, caste, color, gender, shape, size or religion. It blesses every creature with love and compassion. Nature is a source of inspiration. But we don’t apply even the slightest approach of that positivity in our daily lives. Rather, we allow color, shape, size etc to determine who is beautiful and who isn’t. We learn as we imitate our surroundings. Similarly, children learn both good and bad things about someone they look up to. This is why parents should raise their children in such a way they will not judge a person based on color, sizes, caste, height etc. so that they grow up with a beautiful perspective toward life and nature. We, the grownups, get lost chasing the false sense of beauty that we never realize what we are losing until it slips away from our hands. We all are made of same flesh and blood on the inside and we share the same sky. We only live once. Let’s be the best version of ourselves. It’s never too late to start again.

Although beauty is quite subjective depending upon the preferences and taste of an individual, there are always small things that you can do everyday that add to your physical attractiveness. We have listed out six simple and easy things that don’t take much time and lean more towards grooming than actual beauty routines that make you look more put together and improve your overall appearance.

KATHMANDU, July 16: Small enterprises including beauty parlors and small-scale shirting and suiting shops will have to mandatorily register in Value Added Tax from Tuesday, the first day of the Fiscal Year 2018/19.  The provision endorsed in the budget has put these small enterprises under existential threat, according to Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI).

In days when even a 12-year-old in an Indian city would be carrying a smartphone and riding to school on a moped, in Baijnath village in UP’s Sonbhadra district, even pregnant women have to be carried to the nearest hospital on cots.
