From the editor Welcome to 6th edition of Desi Lifestyle Magazine and we would like to thank our sponsors and readers for their continuous support. We are continuously trying to improve our magazine as well and always ask you for your valuable feedback, we have refreshed our logo with your suggestions. Hope you would like it, please also suggest to us the topics you would like to read about. We often want others to improve and always criticise and blame them when they don’t. As the quote says, it is better to look at yourself and see if there are areas where you can improve yourself. Improve yourself to the level where you become a role model for others. Believe me, you can impress others around you and have them improve themselves without saying anything directly. This way, the benefit is two-fold: you have changed yourself and caused change in others as well. There are those who incorporate the good values of others, while leaving behind the bad ones. This way, after some time, such individuals have an abundance of good qualities, which makes them remarkable. Cheers! Be happy and make others happy. Raman Dhillon

ichai hails from the southern state of Tamil Nadu, India and attended the prestigious and competitive IIT Kharagpur undertaking Metallurgical Engineering as his major. He hails from a family of engineers – his father worked as an electrical engineer overseeing a components factory for a British corporation. His mother was employed as a stenographer prior to having children. His initial aim was to obtain a PhD in Materials Science and Semiconductor Physics and transition into an academic career, however, he consequently decided to drop out of the program, and got employed as an Engineer and Product Manager at a Silicon Valley semiconductor manufacturer (Applied Materials). He consequently attended Stanford University, renowned for launching the careers of several prominent Google founders and other early users of Google. Pichai commenced his tenure at Google eleven years ago, and was responsible for the presently defunct Google Toolbar, which provided the option for Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers to make Google their default search engine. In his initial years with the company, he was regarded in a similar scope to many of his colleagues – intelligent, full of potential, and efficient. He played a pivotal role launching Chrome to the technology world seven years ago, which bedazzled and puzzled some critics. Could Google Chrome be an effective rival to the likes of Internet Explorer and Firefox, many wondered? 8

Additionally, it even turned into a favorable and efficient operating system for Chromebook laptops, utilized for the most part by educational organizations around the globe. His contributions towards the company started piling up, as he rose to Vice President, and then Senior Vice President after the successful launch of Android. In 2014, Pichai essentially became the company’s Product Chief where he oversaw most Google software products that weren’t YouTube. He directs Google+, Google Wallet, Android Play and Google Apps services for companies. He is the name behind the brand at developers conferences where customers eagerly await to find out what capabilities the upcoming versions of Android and Chrome encompass. Another statistic to take into consideration – 89% of Google’s $66 billion revenue in 2014 was derived from the department Pichai will now be in charge of.

he Battle Of Saragarhi – When 21 Sikhs Faced 10,000 Pathans In A Sparta Style Last Stand In the summer of 1897, the British faced a major rebellion by the Pashtuns on the Samana range of the Hindu Kush Mountains in Pakistan. At the time the whole region was under the British rule but their hold on the North West Frontier was shaky. Saragarhi was a small communications post held by 21 soldiers of the 36th Sikh Regiment of the British Army. The post enabled communications between Fort Lockhart and Fort Gulistan and was a significant tactical line of defense. In order to cut-off any contact between Fort Lockhart and Fort Gulistan, the Pashtuns attacked the communications post in Saragarhi quite sure that a handful of soldiers could not do anything to stop the siege in any significant way. The leader of the pack Ishwar Singh had different plans, however Ishwar Singh knew that holding off the army of Pashtuns was neither practical nor logical but one thing that Sikhs are widely known for is their bravery. Ishwar Singh ordered his men to prepare for battle while he sent out the message to Lt. Col. John Haughton at Fort Lockhart to send in reinforcements. The main strategy of the Sikh Regiment was to force the Pashtuns to engage in a battle and hold them off till help arrived even if it meant sacrificing their lives to defend the post. When the battle began and the Pashtuns suffered heavy casualties in efforts to breach a part of the wall of the picket, offers were made to the soldiers in return for their surrender but they vehemently refused. Fierce had-to-hand fighting ensued as the regiment held-off the ferocious attacks courageously. The first man to get injured was Bhagwan Singh and shortly before the end, the lead commander Ishwar Singh ordered his men to retreat while he took the mantle to delay the Pashtun’s charge. The last man to fall was Gurmukh Singh, the heliograph operator, whose battle cry, “Bole So Nihal, Sat Sri Akal,” was heard until the end. No Sikh survived the battle but the regiment till www.desilifestylemagazine.com

When 21 Sikhs Faced 10,000 Pathans In A Sparta Style Last Stand then had made sure that reinforcements reach Fort Gulistan to prevent any losses on other Forts. The story of the courage shown by those 21 Sikhs is taught in schools of France and remembered as one of the eight collective stories on bravery published by UNESCO. 21 Sikhs inflicted heavy losses to the Pashtuns

taking out a total of 600 Pathans in the battle. The soldiers were awarded the Indian order of merit and the battle is still remembered today as one of the most epic last stands by an Indian regiment in its history.

MALKA NIJJER Malka Nijjer is a 12 year old girl who lives in Kerman and sounds like every other. Her favorite superhero is Superwoman, likes old Disney cartoons and ABC Family shows, listens to Sia, plays many different sports like swim and volleyball depending on the season, and wants to have a pet horse.

But her journey to help those without their own voice began when she fell in love with animals when she would play with them at a daycare and volunteered at the SPCA. Once there, she did some research on what Kerman had to offer regarding animal shelters and realized that there wasn’t a decent one. She felt let down since Kerman was filled with so many different activities and offered things for many different things other than animals. From there she went on to present her ideas for a new animal shelter in front of the city council. After writing an article in The Kerman News to make the city aware of her efforts, she presented once more in front of city council and they approved for the construction of a new animal shelter! The annual fundraiser she usually had for the Fresno SPCA then went towards the new shelter. Her parents, family, teachers, and friends supported her throughout her journey since she started at age 7. Malka says

www.desilifestylemagazine.com

no one inspires her because she just randomly comes up with ideas for things. Joining sports, running for student body representative, volunteering at places comes to her randomly and she goes through with them!    Malka plans on helping out her community even more in the future, even with just the small things like her old teachers and friends. She says in the future she wants to do everything! With such a large passion for almost everything, staying limited to one career seems difficult though many around her say they can see her as the mayor or the President. As of right now she’s thinking about professional horseback riding. One advice that she gives anybody who wants to do what she is doing or just need a little encouragement in starting something is to just go for it. “Just do it and go for it in case your plan might work. Don’t listen to anyone no matter how crazy it sounds.”

PANEER

BHURJI

Paneer Bhurji is usually a dry or semi dry recipe. This gravy version is slightly different than the way the dry paneer bhurji is made. Fairly simple and easy and you don’t need to grind or puree anything. This is the recipe of making the bhurji with a tari or gravy.

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

- 250 grams paneer, crumbled - 2 medium onion, finely chopped or ½ cup finely chopped onion - 2 medium tomatoes, finely chopped or ½ cup finely chopped tomatoes - 1 green chili - 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp coriander powder (dhania powder) - 1 tsp cumin powder (jeera powder) - ½ tsp red chili powder (lal mirch powder) - ¼ tsp turmeric powder (haldi) - ¼ tsp garam masala powder - 3 tbsp fresh curd (dahi) - ½ cup water - 3 tbsp chopped coriander leaves - 2 tbsp oil or butter - ½ inch ginger for garnish - salt as required

1. Crumble 250 grams paneer and keep aside. 2. Heat 2 tbsp butter or oil in a pan. 3. Add the whole spices - 1 inch cinnamon, 3 cloves, 2 green cardamoms, 5 to 6 black peppercorns and 2 small tej patta or 1 medium to large tej patta. saute till the spices become aromatic. 4. Then add ½ cup finely chopped onion. stir very well. 5. Saute the onions till light golden. 6. Add the chopped green chilies and 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste. 7. Saute till the aroma of ginger-garlic goes away. 8. Now add ½ cup finely chopped tomatoes. stir very well. 9. Saute till the tomatoes soften and you see oil releasing from the sides of the masala. 10. Add 1 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp cumin powder, ½ tsp red chili powder, ¼ tsp turmeric powder and ¼ tsp garam masala powder. 11. Stir the ground spices well. 12. Keep the flame to its lowest, and now add 3 tbsp fresh curd. 13. As soon as you add curd, stir quickly and briskly. 14. Then add ½ cup water and stir. 15. Add 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves. stir. 16. Bring the curry or gravy to a simmer. 17. Then add the crumbled paneer. also add salt. 18. Stir very well and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes till the paneer is cooked. 19. Switch off and add 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves. 20. Stir very well and serve paneer bhurji gravy with chapati, rotis, paratha or bread.

PASSION for FASHION

Glam5 is my Passion for Fashion and Destination for all the Fashion Hungry Fashionistas! Unconventional Designs in ever colorful Indian attires will enrich your looks and Highlight the Best in you.

T

hough I was born and brought up in a small village in Punjab, it was never a challenge to pursue what I desired, but it has to be in educational field…to be exact “Sciences”, and that was never my cup of tea. Back in days career in Fashion or Music was considered a TABOO… therefore,( unwillingly)did my degree in Industrial Microbiology, so I could get a good paying job. However I never wanted to work in that field …I was still hungry, as I didn’t get to do what I absolutely loved…If you don’t Love what you do you may earn money, but will never earn happiness and satisfaction. I was growing up to be at my Best when it came to Fashion and Music, and knew it deep down that I want to do my own business in Fashion World, and waited for the right time.. Since childhood I was labelled as the one who would always go against the flow, and to be very honest that has helped me become a strong and ambitious person that I am today. It all began with what I would wear, and in no time I created an image of self-made Designer amongst my family and friends. I would be approached for fashion emer-

gencies and or to cultivate a particular look for any particular event or occasion. Putting my family First, I decided to open up a Home Based Boutique in Fall of 2012. If you want to stand out in the crowd, it is very important to NOT FOLLOW routine and conventional styles in your outfit and accessories. Wear what would look good on you, not what you saw looked good on someone else. Following what is new in the market is a good, but make sure you don’t get overwhelmed and try out everything that is out there. What looked good on someone else may or may not look good on you, so fight that craving of getting the copies made. I always educate my clients, that “Original is always better than Copy” and that is where customized outfits are THE BEST, as they are made JUST FOR YOU. If you don’t like to wait as customizing may take a bit of time, try to pick what is Right for You according to your Age, Body shape , Season and Style. Today’s commercialized world looking Beautiful has become important than ever before, so why not do it with your own Signature Style!

DRESS RIGHT: 5 RULES TO FOLLOW - Your outfit and accessories should complement your age, do not OVERDO it. - Go for Unconventional Designs and Styles to get that WOW Factor. - Always choose colors and fabrics according to the seasons and occasions Dark and Rich shades are great for Fall and Winter, whereas Soft and Perky colors are perfect addition in Spring and Summer. - Carry your outfit with confidence, and even a simple design would kill all the Bling in the room. - Last but not least, take care of your skin, Soul and Body. www.desilifestylemagazine.com

MERCEDES-BENZ C400 A

ll-new vehicle designs are usually designed to catch the eye and attract attention, but the reasons for that attraction often depend on the numbers that appear on the price sheet. Since its arrival last year, the 2015 MercedesBenz C-Class has garnered its share of positive attention: it was named Best New Luxury Car under $50,000 by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) and World Car of the Year by a jury of international auto reviewers. I’ll be the first to admit that automotive awards programs have their flaws, and I’ve cast many a vote in the Canadian Car of the Year awards myself, but there’s no doubt that these awards tend to go to vehicles that are among the best in their respective classes. How you define ‘best’ in the C-Class’s case depends on your perspective. If BMW’s cars offer the self-proclaimed ‘ultimate driving experience,’ then Benz has traditionally played toward buyers

26 Desi Lifestyle 2015

looking for a more laid-back vehicle and a purer expression of German automotive luxury. This new C-Class, however, makes it clear that Mercedes is aiming to challenge BMW’s driving prowess. I hopped in to my C 400 tester, and my first hint of this car’s intentions was the driver’s seat, whose extra-firm cushions were a turn-off before I started the engine. My week in this car was limited to city driving stints of less than an hour at a shot, which I was actually glad for, as this seat discouraged thoughts of long highway hauls. On the upside, these chairs are supportive in the right places, including a power-adjustable underthigh bolster. Like most of its direct competitors, the C-Class retains compact interior dimensions: a friend who stands a tall-in-the-torso five-footnine was disappointed in how little headroom there was under my test car’s standard panoramic sunroof. There was plenty of space for my shorter frame, and only a steering wheel whose telescopic reach didn’t extend far enough for my liking took

away from the driving position. Rear seat riders will find useful legroom, though headroom is again compromised, this time by the roofline as it slopes toward the rear window. Mercedes offers a range of interior colour combinations, but my test car came with basic black with aluminum trim. The metal bits felt like the real deal (including gorgeous grilles on the Burmeister stereo’s door-mounted speakers), but the all-black scheme made the car feel dark and close, and the piano black centre console looked a bit down-market next to the other materials. Mercedes-Benz is moving away from model names that directly reflect what’s under the hood: while the entry-level model with its 2.0-litre turbocharged fourcylinder is called the C 300, the C 400 label is reserved for cars using a turbo 3.0-litre V6. Never mind the name; pay attention to this engine, instead, because it’s a winner with its 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. It wasn’t so long ago that the high-performance AMG-tuned C 55 “only” boasted 362 hp/376 lb-ft, and while this C 400 is no AMG thunderbeast, the turbo six makes this a seriously quick car, especially from low speeds, where all that torque is available at just 1,600 rpm. Standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive is a good fit here, putting that torque down efficiently and without drama; there’s a reason so many powerful, upscale cars come with four-wheel traction as standard kit. The only transmission is a seven-speed automatic that works unobtrusively most of the time. It’s when you get an itchy right foot and engage the car’s ‘sport+’ mode that the gearbox lets the rest of the car down. While it holds gears longer and is more eager to downshift in that performance-oriented setting, it doesn’t snap off the crisp upshifts I expected, and manual downshifts commanded via the wheel-mounted paddles are sloppier and less-immediate than they should be. That’s a shame, because the optional ‘agility select’ system (part of the C 400 sport package) that lets you toggle between ‘eco,’ ‘comfort,’ ‘sport,’ and ‘sport+’ modes works on the steering, throttle response, and air suspension to change the character of the car from comfy cruiser to the closest you’ll get to the V8powered AMG-tuned C 63 without spending the extra $23,000 it commands. No matter what the agility select setup was set to, I found the ride to be on the firm side. Notably, the C 400 gets big, cross-drilled front brake rotors that provide solid stopping performance and good pedal feel. Against fuel consumption ratings of 11.1/8.4 L/100 km (city/ highway), my test car averaged 11.2 L/100 km in real-world city driving, which included liberal use of ‘sport+’ mode, and all that torque.

www.desilifestylemagazine.com

Mercedes offers the expected high-tech features here: blind spot assist, lane keeping assist, autonomous emergency braking, a rear-end collision mitigation system that aims to protect the driver of a stopped C 400 from injury when it senses a fast-moving car approaching from behind, and pedestrian recognition that activates the auto-brake system when it senses pedestrians in the road and the driver doesn’t react. More novel available extras include a park-assist system that

helps guide the car into a spot, intelligent cruise control that will keep the car in its lane in long curves, a console-mounted touchpad that recognizes “handwriting” gestures for entering navigation destinations, and that sweet-sounding Burmeister stereo with 13 speakers and 590 watts of amplification. Notable omissions from my C 400 tester were adaptive (steerable) headlights, which are a $1,200 stand-alone option (static LED headlights are standard at this trim level). I’d have liked to see them included in a car whose price came within spitting distance of $60,000. Overall, the new C-Class is a well-executed sport sedan that actually does challenge the BMW 3 Series’ driving feel, if only because the latest generation is less driver-focused than it used to be. The C 400 does have its flaws, but it’s a car well worth checking out to see if you think it deserves all the attention it’s been getting.

SEVEN NETWORKING SECRETS EVERYONE SHOULD LEARN IN THEIR 20S

F

resh out of college, my first job was doing marketing research for McGraw Hill in New York City. I didn't know many people in the city, and, to me, networking was all about finding new friends to hang out with. Networking was purely social. What I discovered over the years is that networking is much more than that. It is an essential part of building a successful career, and, if done strategically and intentionally, it can be very powerful. Here are the seven secrets about networking I wish I learned in my 20s: Effective networking involves focus, attention, and strategy. Many of us network haphazardly. We join some industry groups. We meet coworkers after work for a drink, but we don't have a plan. We might even think the more people we meet, the better. But meeting the right people is most im30 Desi Lifestyle 2015

portant. The right people are those that can help you reach your career goal. The right people are those people who are willing to speak up for you. You need to focus on people with whom you can build strong, mutually beneficial relationships. There is a direct relationship between networking strategically and increased income. Upwardly Mobile, Inc., with the support of Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business Management, conducted research in April 2008 about how professionals use networking. They surveyed more than 600 high-earning "elite" professionals about how they use networking to cultivate richer relationships, gain more access, and enjoy more success in their careers and personal lives. Their findings confirm that "networking is a key driver behind higher salaries and career advancement." www.desilifestylemagazine.com


Keeping in touch with former alums and colleagues is money in the bank. When I wanted to make a career move after having lost out on a promotion, I tapped into my network and let people know I was looking for a new opportunity. Almost immediately, a former colleague gave me information about an opening in her company. She worked in another business unit there and knew the management team. Not only did she give me the lead, but she also presold me to the key stakeholders. I interviewed for the position and landed the job. My income almost doubled. Paying it forward pays off. One important lesson I've learned is that the more you invest in your network, the more valuable your network is. Taking calls, responding to emails, offering to help people creates a strong bond. People trust that you will be there for them and are often willing to respond in kind. It's important to network proactively so you have these relationships when you need help. One of my clients is a great example of this. Lisa was always willing to offer her help and support to her former colleagues. An executive with a long history in banking, Lisa took a risk and joined a technology startup as COO. After one year, it was apparent that this new opportunity wasn't working out. Lisa was let go. The primary breadwinner in her family, she needed another high-level job as soon as possible. She immediately let her network know what she was looking for. They gave her leads about openings, and she was able to secure a senior executive position within a month and a half. The job had not even been formally posted yet. The time and energy she invested in helping her network contacts paid off.

and ask questions and listen. The things you might have in common help to establish a connection that will blossom over time. Don't just network with people you like and people like you. Our comfort zone is to hang out with people most like us, but research supports the benefits of diverse networks. Ronald S. Burt, professor of sociology and strategy at the University Of Chicago Booth School of Business, has done extensive research on the efficacy of diverse networks. "Indeed, it might not be who or what you know that creates advantage, but rather more simply, who you become by dint of how you hang out — the disadvantaged hang out with folks just like themselves, while the advantaged engage folks of diverse opinion and practice." How are you currently networking? It takes focus and intention to network effectively for your career advancement. Courtesy of Bonnie Marcus, Women's Success Coaching Courtesy of: www.businessinsider.com

Collecting business cards is better than handing them out. Do you go to networking events armed with a stack of business cards? We have been instructed that giving out our cards is the best way to make connections. The secret to effective networking, however, is to make sure you collect business cards of those people you meet. This way you can control the follow up. You give away your card — you give away the control. After you go to a networking event, write notes on the back of the cards about the conversation you had with this person and potential ways to follow up. Forget the elevator pitch; find commonality. I often hear from clients that they don't know what to say when they first meet people at networking events. They stumble over their elevator pitch trying to impress someone with their title or expertise. Here's the thing to remember: It's the commonality that matters.

SUZUKI

GSX-S750 W

hen Suzuki launched its first GSX-R750 in 1985, it turned the sportbike world on its head. Where had this idea been before and why had nobody thought of it earlier? A supersport bike for the road – what a novelty. The first Gixxers, as they turned out to be known, were purely road bikes taken directly from the track, well with some modifications to make them street legal. It was the notion of a reputed race-imitation, and with this single killer blow, Suzuki changed everybody’s reasoning from greater and all the more intense is best – to lighter and nimble is better. In reality, the Gixxers additionally created obscure levels of drive, so much so that the competition was racing to keep up. Luckily, and especially for those who have ridden them, Suzuki never stopped making the GSX-R750, and it is arguably the perfect Supersport motorcycle. It has much more power than a 600, which can feel a little lackluster unless it is revved to the moon, while the liter bikes are over-specified for the street, and can even be quite a handful on the track. But not everyone needs, or wants a supersport bike, and that’s where the S750 comes into play. For 2015, the Suzuki GSX-S750 gives an already titled bike even more road keen execution. Mixing only the right blend of present day sportbike execution with cutting edge street bike style, this S750 is reason fabricated for energy. Suzuki took the intense 749cc four-chamber fuel-infused sportbike motor from the GSX-R750, and tuned it to convey the ideal force bend for road riding. The motor’s cam profiles have been reexamined, and the admission and exhaust tracts have been reshaped to help low-end torque and mid-reach power. This gives the 750 unmatched throttle reaction and serious speeding up. Suzuki’s double throttle valve fuel infusion implies the execution is fresh and reliable. Also, the bike’s pulsed-secondary AIR-injection system pushes fresh air into the exhaust ports, which allows the Suzuki GSX-S750 to meet the latest emissions standards. Since this is not a supersport, the handlebars supplant the race bike’s clip-ons, conveying a more upright street bike style. A complete instrument panel is pretty simple and user friendly, complete with a tachometer, a computerized LCD speedometer, fuel-utilization meter, apparatus position pointer, fuel gauge, odometer/excursion meter and a clock. It’s pretty much all you need. Most motorcycles are fun, but the Suzuki GSX- S750 is fun all the time, mainly because Suzuki got the balance just right between easy-to-ride-manageability and high performance. If you’re used to a 600-class bike, you are losing out — it might be time to upgrade. The motor is redlined at a conservative 11,250 rpm, and the Gixxer motor simply rips to the rev limiter. If you want horsepower, it’s there — track day anyone? However, those happy to enjoy the performance without going nuts will be well rewarded with the decent mid-range and strong top-end pull from this engine. 32 Desi Lifestyle 2015

“Humble Value... BRILLIANT ENGINE”

Anuraag J Singh vdrag.wordpress.com

www.desilifestylemagazine.com


Clutch action is light, and the six-speed transmission is so easy and smooth to engage that, a lot of the time, I simply used clutchless upshifting. I wouldn’t call this bike a beginner machine, but it is so user-friendly that novice and intermediate riders will quickly feel at home. Of course, that feeling is also because of the comfortable ergonomics and lightweight, neutral-handling chassis and suspension. The handlebars of the GSX create a slightly leaned forward riding position, with sporty feeling (but pleasantly rubbermounted) rear-set foot pegs and a 32-inch seat height. As I mentioned before, the S750 is quite easy to ride, but it still lacks the lighter-feeling and more agile Honda CBR650F. With the Honda, it all just works very well together. This is not to say that the GSX-S750 is a good bike; it’s quite good but just not as good as the Honda. With respect to city and highway riding, the Suzuki has lots of power, with that brilliant engine from the Gixxer. If I was doing more open road and highway riding, I may opt for the Yamaha FZ-09, simply for the additional power, torque, and size. Despite the humble value, taking a GSX-R and turning into a naked bike is quite an accomplishment. Other manufacturers have done the same with their supersports and many riders welcome the option of a naked alternative. The GSX-S750 is a great bike that just needs some more refinement, but for under $9000, it’s a great choice.

TEA - CHAI

As hard working men and women across the world rely on the power that coffee gives them early in the mornings and late at night, Chai Tea Latte is a go to sugary favorite for most Indians!

34 Desi Lifestyle 2015

T

ypically what most people have seen with older Indians is that they only order a chai tea latte, similar to the chai that they are used to drinking at home, and never order something new or different. This in turn can be due to them wanting to just stick to something that they know they will like and not wanting to explore and adventure out into the massive world that consists of coffees and teas.

   Though the Chai Tea Latte isn’t an exact replica of the daily chai that most Indians tend to make and drink in their own home, it comes as a close substitute. If you’re an Indian who is working constantly and don’t have time to make it yourself, someone else making it for you sounds like a good idea! Growing up drinking chai can make a habit that’s hard to cut, and with limited amount of time that you have in your life, www.desilifestylemagazine.com


it’s easier to just buy what you like at a coffee shop. If you’re one of those people, why not venture out and try something else? Though it reminds you of the good ol’ times you had with your friends and family and helps you relax, that Chai Tea Latte isn’t any healthier than the chai that you can make at home. For the young ones reading this that tend to go to Starbucks, Dutch Bros, or any other coffee chains with their parents or older friends, see if they order the Chai Tea Latte or something similar every time. If they do, try and cut their

habit by making them try something new! They may just find that they like the Peach Tea or Passion Tea better than their old favorite. Sometimes all someone needs is a little push in a different direction. This lesson can go to anyone who typically sticks to their regular drink that they always order. Exploring around doesn’t hurt you and you can always go back to your old favorite, but how will you know you don’t like something until you try it? You may just end up finding a hidden diamond behind all of the coal.

t is absolutely vital to have a good, strong immune system to stay healthy. The immune system is the body’s defense mechanism to fight off illnesses and infections. Nutritional deficiencies as well as lack of physical exercise and too much stress can impair immune functions and compromise immunity, increasing both the risk and severity of infection. Remember that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The foods you eat have a great impact on your immune system which is a complex network of cells and organs. Feeding your body certain foods packed with nutrients and disease-fighting properties will help keep your immune system running strong.

1. GARLIC Garlic is one of best immune-boosting foods. It contains powerful antibiotic, antiviral, and antifungal properties that help the body ward off and fight infections. Regular consumption of garlic helps your body fight infections and inflammatory diseases like the common cold, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and multiple sclerosis. Plus, it can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and aid in preventing various types of cancer. To stay healthy, eat one or two raw garlic cloves daily. 2. HONEY Daily consumption of honey has been found to strengthen the immune system. Its antioxidant, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties help fight infections from viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Honey also can improve your digestive system, treat acid reflux, soothe a sore throat, treat a nasty cough, improve blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity, and heal wounds and scars quickly. Start each day with one teaspoon of honey along with a glass of lukewarm water to enjoy its numerous health benefits. Note: Honey should never be given to children under age 1. 3. GINGER This pungent herb has been used for ages to boost the immune system and treat many health problems. Apart from being a strong antioxidant, ginger has antimicrobial, antiseptic,

36 Desi Lifestyle 2015

antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties. This herb helps eliminate congestion, ease throat pain, kill cold viruses, combat fever, inhibit pancreatic cancer cell growth, inhibit growth of peptic ulcer disease, promote gastric mobility, decrease chronic pain and lower high cholesterol. Drink one to two cups of ginger tea daily to keep your immune system functioning properly. 4. GREEN TEA Green tea is the best drink known to boost the immune system. It introduces a type of flavonoid called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) into the body that helps fight bacteria and prevent viruses from multiplying. It also has many powerful antioxidants that help protect against viruses, bacteria and other micro-organisms that can cause health problems. Regular consumption of green tea also will help prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, periodontal disease, and osteoporosis. Enjoy a soothing cup of green tea several times a day. Do not add milk, as it will make the tea less effective for this purpose. 5. YOGURT To boost your immune system, include yogurt with active cultures in your diet. The strains of ‘good’ bacteria such as Bifidobacterium lactis in yogurt boost the activity of immune system cells to destroy viruses

for the normal functioning of the immune system and helps develop resistance to infection. Sweet potatoes also help regulate blood sugar and lower insulin resistance; combat inflammatory problems like asthma, arthritis, and gout; relieve constipation and prevent colon cancer; protect against emphysema; and prevent strokes and heart attacks. Eat one-half cup of boiled sweet potatoes daily to improve your immune system and stay healthy. 8. CHICKEN SOUP A bowl of homemade chicken soup can boost your immune system and increase your chances of beating a viral infection quickly. Chicken soup provides a strong dose of protein, an important nutrient for immune system maintenance. Plus, it contains B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and zinc, all of which strengthen your immune system.

The Rise of Non-Banking Services

The loaning industry has encountered a significant change in the dynamics of lending volume. Before 2010, the top sources for business owners, home purchasers, and people to request loans were with big banks. But in today’s market, government actions have reduced incentives for banks to act as creditors due the mortgage crisis that occurred in 2007. Consequently, private lenders have acquired many of these borrowers as clients and have increased their volume of loans and shares of mortgage servicing. But what does this mean for you and your business? What this implies is that in today’s market, private lenders such as Biz4loans can offer you a deal banks are unwilling and unable to match. Biz4loans can present your company the opportunity to invest in its future. We have helped numerous companies expand their operations, increase their revenue, and acquire a steady cash flow. We have a highly qualified team with experts in analyzing business needs. Call our toll-free number, (888) 943-1497.

What’s Trending in Today’s Markets?

Hobby farms are a hot product type in today’s real estate markets. For those unfamiliar with this term, it refers to a residence on a small farm not used as a source for primary income. But why in an era marked with urbanization would hobby farm property be trending? There are a few factors that make this product type a draw towards young and older consumers. According to Pete Hinrichs, a senior director of mortgage underwriting with AgStar Financial Services, lower interest rates, energy prices, and a stronger economy all make hobby farms a larger draw. Additionally, the emerging ability for workers to work and conduct their businesses from home increases the appeal of these properties. For those seeking to purchase any real estate, including this type, we can offer professional assistance in acquiring the property. Here at Biz4loans, we offer agricultural loans, commercial real estate loans, and we can offer nontraditional loans as well. To learn more inwww.desilifestylemagazine.com

Singh

is Bliing's opening credits roll against a

remixed version of Sneha Khanwalkar's fantastically peppy "Tung Tung". We see a delirious Kumar cracking out bhangra moves with such gusto that you might just feel your muscles ache on his behalf. There's only one word to describe Kumar's performance as Raftaar Singh: octane. Whether he’s being the stereotypical empty-headed sardar or busting out dance moves or fighting bad guys, his energy is phenomenal. Kumar is proof that ageing is a wondrous thing. He didn’t have even a fraction of this onscreen charm when he was in the prime of his youth. It’s not just that Kumar looks infinitely better — the death of the Nineties’ mullet has been a boon in many heroes’ lives — but as a grizzled older man, he’s also commanding the screen with far more confidence and grace than he did before. Kumar plays Raftaar Singh, a good-for-nothing Punjabi lad whose chief qualification is that he’s momma’s boy. Raftar’s father has a friend in Goa who runs a casino. When Raftaar takes Rs 50,000 from his father’s cupboard without permission, his dad tells Raftaar that he’s got to grow up. How? By marrying an overweight village belle or going to work in Goa. Does this make logical sense? Of course not. But if you’ve come to see Singh is Bliing with expectations of realism, you’re more of an idiot than Raftaar, who lives up to the stereotype of sardars being loyal, bhangra-powered, lovable fools. In Goa, Raftaar meets a woman who is more than his match. Sara (Amy Jackson) is an arms dealer’s daughter who catches the eye of deranged gangster Mark (Kay Kay Menon). What better way to deal with an insane Indo-Romanian stalker than to chill out in Goa, at her dad’s friend’s bungalow? Raftaar is appointed as Sara’s chaperone in Goa. She doesn’t speak Hindi. He doesn’t speak English. Enter Lara Dutta as the translator, Emily (whom Raftaar and his friends call “imli”. Naturally). Adding heft to the theory that ageing can work wonders is Dutta. On the ‘wrong’ side of her thirties, Dutta is a revelation in Singh is Bliing. She looks great, even when she’s wearing blindingly bad outfits, and milks comedy from practically every moment she has onscreen. Over-the-top moments that should make us cringe and groan become cute and giggle-worthy, simply because of Dutta’s fine performance. When Kumar and Dutta come together in the “Dil Kare Chu Che” — a rare example of a song that is actually connected to the plot instead of being generic — it’s so funny that this reviewer started wondering whether director Prabhudheva has found ways of lacing popcorn.

naked, for no reason other than to titillate the audience. Another woman existed in the film only to get beaten up. The third was an idiot. From the director who made that film, you do not expect a follow-up in which the women characters really are heroines. Singh is Bliing may be Kumar’s film through and through, but he is ably supported by Rati Agnihotri as his stay-at-home mum, Dutta as the goofy translator and Jackson as the nut-busting Sara. Women blow each other up, stick up for one another and even behave like normal human beings from time to time. In a Prabhudheva film, this is downright shocking. It’s almost as though Singh is Bliing is Prabhudheva’s attempt to redeem himself after all the criticism that was (rightly) chucked at him for Action Jackson. Singh is Bliing pokes fun at the male ego again and again. Women take charge smoothly and don’t need men to save the day until the very end, when the alpha rises. (Let’s not forget this is commercial cinema, after all.) Still, for the bulk of Singh is Bliing, the men are the losers, but they think they’re macho and that’s the source of many of the film’s gags. Jackson’s Sara is a ninja warrior who can pummel a legion of men — including an Indian Khal Drogo lookalike named Boxer, who wears a locket with a boxer dog’s face. In case he forgets his name, perhaps? — without smudging her makeup. Raftaar, on the other hand, spends most of the film getting beaten up. Dutta runs circles around the men and has a wonderful sleepwalking interlude. Ladies, let us a raise a glass of tender coconut water to the actresses, Prabhudheva and Grazing Goat Pictures, who are credited with having scripted Singh is Bliing. It isn’t comsee the credit comCreideas out on sembly a shame humans for the of Singh is reduced

ASK AUNTIE JI Dear Auntie Ji, How can I save money while I am in college? With the tuition being so expensive, having to buy books and certain things for classes, and splurging on other costs saving money seems to be such a hard thing! - Struggling College Student Dear Struggling College Student, When buying things, make a list to make sure you only get what you absolutely need. Over buying is always easy to do when you don’t have specific things you need to get and wander around. Sometimes, things online are much cheaper than buying through the school as well. As for textbooks, most students now rely on renting so they don’t spend as much money on buying the book and then having to sell it again. You can also buy used textbooks. If you’re living in a dorm, staying in a triple is usually the cheapest and even then only buy the things you need. Make a game plan and stick to it! The tuition has lots of “free” things that it covers, so instead of going out with your friends and spending excess money, there may be something going on the campus that can be an alternative. At the end of the day, it really just depends on how good you are with handling your money and sticking to what you need. I wish you good luck! Dear Auntie Ji, I am starting a business and as of now it just seems to be going slow and no where. Though there is some support coming in, it’s not how I imagined it to. I don’t know if I should stick to the plan or change what I’m doing. - Business Freshman Dear Business Freshman, When opening a business, even the little things make the biggest difference. Who you’re catering to, where you’re located, what you’re providing, whether the business is seasonal or not, etc. I’m figuring that you had a game plan of some sort before you actually started your business and had some sort of backing to get you started. Things don’t always go as they plan in anything. That’s just how life is. The ultimate decision of whether you want to change your direction or stick to what you have is in your hands. Before making a decision, do think about the amount of work, time, and money you put into developing your business and whether you think you’ll get a profit out of it if you make a small change. Sometimes a small change is all someone needs to make the big difference! It is a big decision, so don’t rush it and thoroughly think it through.
