What did you find most challenging as a female cricket player? “The women’s game has become increasingly demanding over the last decade, with the majority of girls training professionally for a semi-professional sport. I think the biggest challenge whilst playing was cramming as much into my day as possible from fitness sessions, physio and cricket based training, to lab work and outside commitments. I guess I subconsciously just managed it all because playing for my country was the greatest achievement and there are many others who would do it in a heartbeat. Not that much has changed by way of time-management since retirement, but I am now able to find more time for my friends and family. I also found that, as cricket is a male dominated sport, there was and still is a constant battle to prove to the rest of the world that we could actually play. These barriers are slowly being broken down and perceptions are constantly changing which is largely due to increase media exposure and more money being pumped into the game.” What advice would you give to aspiring women in cricket? If you have a real passion for it and want to become the best you can possibly be then you must dedicate your time to it and be prepared to sacrifice other things that also make you happy. Also if you ever find yourself stuck in a rough patch - remember why you play the game in the first place - for enjoyment.” What has been your biggest learning point? “I believe that complete and utter belief in your own ability, the right attitude along with the rights skill sets is what sets you apart from anyone else. You are also your own worst enemy so it was important to recognise when I was being over critical.” What is your most special achievement? “There’s no greater feeling than winning a World Cup. It comes round every four years and is at the pinnacle of any sport. When I began playing for England in 2002, we were far from beating Australia and New Zealand, the two heavyweights in the international arena. It took 7 years of hard work and determination as a unit to become the best team in the world in 2009 where we won the World Cup, World T20, Ashes and whitewashed the Australian in an ODI series. Those time were some of the best in my life and to share it with my friends on the pitch was even more special.”

MOIN ASHRAF THE ENGLISH FIRST-CLASS CRICKETER TALKS ABOUT THE MALE SIDE TO CRICKET.

Why cricket? “I don’t believe I chose cricket, I believe cricket chose me. From a young age I was surrounded by cricket, whether that was playing or watching it. It was something that my family were enthusiastic about and they always gave me that option of playing it.” What did you find most challenging as a young cricket player? “The sacrifices or compromises you have to make with your friends. It’s tough saying no to certain events, parties, dinners, gatherings because you have to do extra training sessions but I believe that this will all be worthwhile for me in the future.” What advice would you give to aspiring cricketers? “Four points- Hard Work, Dedication, Prayers and Belief. You must have these to succeed.” What has been your biggest learning point? “My time with the Yorkshire Academy. It was a tough period as for the first time as a young boy I was playing against grown adults at the age of 16. This was tough and it took a while to adapt but I enjoyed the challenge and it benefited me greatly. I’m a firm believer that every setback is a platform for a comeback and enables you to comeback stronger.”

What is your most special achievement? “There a few but if I was to pick 1, that would b my home championship debut against Kent at Headingley where I took 5-32. I was 18 the time and I impressed a few people in the process and my family especially were prou Seeing my father in the crowd as well as other members in my family with a smile on his f was a highlight for me and a moment that will stay with me forever.”

Who is your biggest inspiration and why? “Imran Khan - He has achieved great thin and off the pitch. He lead by example and the hospital he set up on his mothers nam Cancer patients. Cristiano Ronaldo - I believe he is an exceptional athlete and a role to aspiring athletes such as myself in the way he presents and conducts himself.”

What are you up to now and where do you see yourself in 5 years? “I’m currently hard to get back not the 1st team for Yorkshire as well as practising for the One Da in a few weeks as I feel I will feature heavily in them.”

Do you have a song that motivates you? “I wouldn’t say so, before I bowl the the day in the game I always make a short prayer for my performance and the well being of everyone at the game, myself, the fans and even the oppositi nobody gets hurt.” Who is the most famous person you have met? “Kevin Pietersen.”

The funniest thing that’s ever happened to you? “I once got dre friends as they teamed up on me and attacked me with wate water guns, I was drenched, and once I was dry, they started revenge a few weeks later though Ha.” Your dream destination? “Holiday? Dubai on Jumeira Beach.”

If you had one superpower what would it be and why? “Invisibility what people say about me, good or bad.”

How did your musical journey begin?

Raj: We learnt classical Tabla from a young age and played Kirtan at our local Gurdwara (Sikh Temple), then when we were around 14/15 we started to mess around with a sound system and some DJ equipment which I got for my birthday and make cheesy killer rave music! We were always up to date with the music scene and started to play music for weddings and parties and a few years after that we promoted club nights.

How did you feel about the release of your 1st Album, The Rising?

Pops: It was our first album and we had no expectations of it doing so well, we are from Scotland where the music scene is much smaller. ‘Nachna Onda Ni’ was in the UK top 10 for around 8 weeks; we got great feedback from some of the top DJ’s around.

Digi Bhang, tell me more!

What music styles influence you?

11

Pops: We listen to everything! We listen to a lot of traditional artists such – Gurdas Maan, Sartaj. We like to stay on top of things up to date with Bollywood music and western music such as hip hop, bashment, dance, and experimental bass music. Raj: Music is constantly evolving, you need be aware of artists and producers. We find a lot of Asian music is only themed around weddings and with the same sounds, instruments and styles, you can’t tell them apart. You need to actually ‘make the music’ which is what we are aspiring to do. You need to set yourself apart and have a particular perfected sound, for example Rishi Rich, he has done so well because he has a unique sound that everyone recognises.

MANGO JOOSE MAGAZINE

What do like to do when your not making music? Raj: I used to be into XBOX alot but now I love spending time with my daughters and watching them experience the world, its so much more inspirational. Pops: I do a lot of DIY as I studied Architecture; I enjoy listening to loads of music, Kirtan, Katha and hold a great interest in reading about Sikh History, current affairs and various literatures.


How are you guys feeling about the launch of your new album?

Raj: We are actually feeling really excited about it. There was a point where we would get a little bit apprehensive when we launched a new single as we were unsure whether the scene was ready for what were doing, it’s more about excitement now because we know we are reaching out to people that listen to more than just bhangra.

What advice would you give to young musicians who want to follow in your footsteps?

Pops: This is the first Tigerstyle which is not being released by a record label. We set up our own boutique digital label in 2010, and we’re now at the stage where we have invested our own money and are releasing our new album worldwide, ourselves.

Raj: Stick with what you know and learn as much as you can.

Raj: There’s all sorts of flavours on this, on the track ‘Ay-Ha!’ There’s little breaks of desi percussion but the vast majority of it is electronic and dub- step. We have powerful heavy Dhol percussion and Indian instrumentation going on in some of the tracks but then the bass line and other elements are electronic. Pops: We are evolving with Digi-Bhang, we decided the music we make we don’t want to call it ‘bhangra’ anymore because its not strictly bhangra, its a new music form and we’re calling it ‘Digi-Bhang.

What do you find most challenging about what you do?

Raj: there’s a lot of people that you meet along the way that try and detract you alot from what you do, the hardest thing is not to let that negativity influence what we are trying to do, along the way we have met people from labels, fans, non fans that don’t appreciate what we do and bring alot of negative energy, to stay positively focused is quite hard. There is a lot of effort and creativity that goes into single sound we make; it’s so in depth taken from a single wavelength just to create a different sound. There is a track on the album ‘Ki Faida’ every sound we produced is made from a single wavelength, just the bassline alone is made up from 5 different elements and each sound takes at least an hour to create. Pops: We know with what we do not everyone is going to love it, but as an artist we stay in tune with what we want to do creatively. The process of taking our work from a finished product to the public is a challenge, because if we want to go for a mass market we need to have elaborate high budget videos and promotion. There is a challenge to get bigger companies to invest in what we do as they don’t understand our musical background or the influences that come into it, its very niche and all quite cutting edge.

The ‘fabulous woman’ impressed with the “DO IT or DITCH IT” attitude.

RUPINDER KAUR

A super mum to 20 month old Daya, a wife to an inspiring husband, a daughter and daughter in law, an ambassador, you name it, she has got it all under her belt. This driven woman from Surrey truly is a well motivated successful business and career coach helping women reach their full potential in their business ambitions, she encourages self belief to achieve anything ones mind is set out to do. Rupinder turned to coaching after the discovery of her passion in life during her maternity leave, after her classical brainstorming session, she joined a coaching academy and took it heads on. Rupinder believes “sometimes you don’t know what you are good at until someone points it out to you, find out what is it you want to do, thoroughly do the research and go for it!” What is so different about your coaching style? “I know what it takes to get ahead in business, my clients understand where I am coming from. I have been in corporate board meetings where I would usually find myself to be the only Asian woman there, so I know how to stand your ground and get to where you want to be in business.” Rupinder’s biggest inspiration and influence in her life is her husband, “it doesn’t matter how you are packaged on the outside, my husband has never let himself go as a person, he gets ahead in life purely on his merit and knows how shake things up, if he can do it, why can’t I?!” Find out more www.rkcoackching.co.uk

UNIQUE HOMES FOR GIRLS

A charity close to Rupinder’s heart. Rupinder and her husband are trustees for a charity based in India – Unique Homes for girls. Unique Home for Girls is a home for unwanted, abandoned girls in Punjab, India. Due to many cultural and economic reasons (dowry, daughters thought of as consumers and sons as producers, potential conflict over property division, continuation of family line, to name but a few) boys are regarded as the preferred sex and consequently female foeticide and infanticide is often the chosen path for women who feel they have no alternative 274 girls die every day in Punjab before they are born. (Source: The Missing Girls, 2011). Unique Home for Girls provides a safe haven for those that are fortunate enough not to be killed before or at birth. The home has one simple aim: to give these abandoned girls back their lives through education and love. Rupinder and her family have recently taken part in a sky dive to help raise money for this charity and raised over £6000, in addition they went to visit to the girls home in India, in April. “It is one of the most humbling experiences I have known. One of the girls is off to America to study medicine this is truly amazing. It is great for anyone to achieve this as a whole, but to be able to do this with this kind of start to life it is incredible” Please help and support this charity by visiting: http://uniquehomeforgirls.co.uk

Mr Inkquisitive the talented young man from East London, a total creative who’s colours burst with passion through his strong visual illustrations, each and every piece of art is remarkably fresh thinking and unique, Mango Joose talks to Inkquisitive on his art.

When did you get into art illustration? “Hey! Knowing when I started ‘Illustrating’ would probably be when I actually realised I’m doing a course called ‘Illustration’... This would be when I made the big jump from Graphic Design to Illustration mid part of my BA. However, I believe I have always been producing Art, Drawings, Doodles and diving into any sort of creativity as young as I can remember! Illustration academically began towards the end of my BA, I took it much more seriously when doing a Masters solely on Illustration. Since then, there has always been a connection between myself and engaging with visuals.” What inspires you to select the theme, colours and style? What type of artistic products have you used to create art? “I am inspired by anything! LITERALLY ANYTHING. I could be driving home from a meeting and happen to see a dog with its owner and even from something as simple as that my mind allows me to be inspired to go back home and produce Art - imagine the dog walking the owner? My desk is like a massive palette as it has a circle of acrylic paints, indian inks, biro pens, felt pens, watercolour paints, graphite, gouache paints, pencils.... (the list goes on) However, my most common form of Art births from using Indian Inks which is one of my most favourite methodologies to produce. I’m highly attracted to bright colours and beautiful vibrations of colour emerging. Do you think you will hold any classes in the future so others can learn from your styles and techniques? “I would love to take on an opportunity as such! When I finished my BA, I would be invited by my lecturer to come in and do talks and sit with the new students and converse on Art. It was a beautiful experience, one I wish to take further. Infact, it is something I am considering as things map out. I believe as an Artist you never are a finished product. Infact, I am learning everyday, I am reading and I am bouncing ideas and being inspired by people from my generation to children as young as 3-4. Which is why I would love to engage in future classes learning and teaching my techniques. There is nothing greater than sharing our creativity. I wouldn’t take on something as such to ‘teach’, it would be more so to engage and have a room full of colour where everyone is sharing their beliefs and creativity. It would be like one massive paint party!” When is your next exhibition? “I have had a total of 5 exhibitions (2 Academic) (2 Exhibition/Stalls) (1 Solo Artist Exhibition) - I was first able to showcase my work at my Degree shows having done my BA, and a year later my MA. This was exciting to get a feel of interaction with the outside world and my Art. It was also exciting to showcase my work to my parents and family and get their input. I was overwhelmed to have an International exhibition in Toronto. Two were based as an exhibition/stall. The most prominent and most distinctive exhibition was my solo show ‘Keep Calm Imagination Is Free’ - taking the British slogan element overseas which took place in Dec 2012 in downtown Toronto. It was a blessing and changed my life for the better. From being someone who just draws to being able to reach out globally was a sensation I cannot put in words. The way the Art was received and the amount of people who came out, it all is still too much to take in. I am very thankful. There is a documentary releasing from MADTATTERFILMS in June so do look out on the journey. I am looking and hopeful to have 4/5 solo exhibitions occuring this year in the west, dates will be revealed soon enough.”

Tell me more about this piece of art, you have displayed 2 actions that are happening in 1 illustration, what is happening this maybe other members of our community) will be aware of the original, very famous rendition of SOBHA SINGH’s Artwork.

The rings are centred and creating further waves of rings outwards. One side depicting ‘Waheguru’ in English, and the othe embraced: ‘Recognize the Human Race as one’...

How did you feel whilst painting this picture? What emotional feelings did you have? “I don’t think the timeless Artwork of SO was one of many reasons that made me feel closer to Sikhi. However, whilst taking this on, I made sure much emotion went int sure the visual identity of Guru Gobind Singh Ji by Sobha Singh is not taken for a laugh or mocked.

My emotions tend to be very ‘at peace’ whilst producing any Sikhi related Artwork. Although my work is very ‘chaotic’ I still a meaning, not just having thrown paints and Inks over the portrayal of the Guru. There was a strong emotional response whilst 19

Ways to Increase Happiness CREATE MEANING What does it all mean? What is your purpose in life? Well, you have to decide that (even if your Dad already decided that you’re a Doctor). Buy a 99p notepad and write down an ideal vision for your life, create a realistic action plan to get to that vision, and execute the plan. Simples! :D PUT RELATIONSHIPS FIRST Put relationships before work, before trying to be “right”, before everything! Quality relationships all around you will make you so joyful that it’s beyond all words! Human being, after all, is one social beast! EXPRESS YOURSELF Even if you’re a little quiet, pluck up some courage and start a conversation with someone random on the tube, bus, train or at work! You’ll be surprised how alive and free it makes you feel! Go on, express yourself ;) GET UP EARLIER Do you love to snooze? Well, if you snooze, you lose baby! Try getting up just an hour earlier each day and use that extra time to just take things slower, do a little meditation or some self reflection. Miracles are bound to happen.

EXERCISE MORE Exercise releases chemicals inside which make you feel AWESOME. So organise a game of badminton, football or squash with your friends or colleagues and get into great shape at the same time! EAT HEALTHY FOOD What you eat, you become. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. You know all the clichés, but now its time for some action my little chum. Eat healthy and you’ll stay beautiful, young and happy. Worth it? HELP SOMEBODY It’s good to help people, so “they” say, whoever “they” are. So look out for opportunities to do random acts of kindness. God will give you good karma for it! I promise you, my friend! Find out more about Jasdeep and his therapy work here or email him at jasdeep@newlifeawakening.com He is happy to be your agony aunty or uncle!

THE MEN BEHIND

‘INVENTIVE’ Inventive Sports, what is it all about and where did your inspiration come from?

What challenges have you had to face?

23

Jas “Inventive Sports was founded by Jas Jassal and Baljit Rihal. The inspiration came from seeing an abundance of talent and ability at the grassroots from BME communities and a lack of progression into the profession. My own story is I came from a coaching background with more than 10 years experience at the Concorde Rangers FC grassroots football club. From coaching I progressed to becoming vice-chairman and helped develop a partnership with QPR, the West Middlesex and Hayes Youth League and the Middlesex FA to provide professional developmental opportunities and advice, which was sadly lacking at the grassroots. This would enable our club coaches to develop training schedules in line with professional football clubs using their structure as the blueprint. The aim will then be to develop a talented pool of players, coaches and referees by increasing participation and linking in with the professionals. This blueprint will allow grassroots coaches to develop players, which will invariably lead to more opportunities to knock on the door of professional clubs.” Bal “The biggest challenge was to get the main football organisations to take me seriously after I first presented them with the proposal for The Asian Football Awards. It has been a long journey of networking and building up trust with the decision makers in the football industry. Through hard work and shear grit and determination this to some extent has been achieved. Since the delivery of our inaugural event, people have seen what we can deliver and indeed the difference it can make.”

MANGO JOOSE MAGAZINE


The Asian Football Awards, the 2nd Annual is coming up on 8th October 2013, you must be really excited! Tell us more about the awards and how people can get involved...

Jas “The awards in its second year are to celebrate Asian successes in UK football. Many people don’t realise the number of Asians in the football industry. The awards also highlight their amazing stories in achieving success. Finally, it highlights the awareness that footballs governing bodies need to do more to increase the participation levels. That means more and better engagement and the need to promote inclusivity.” How can the Asian community help encourage aspiring young players to balance both their education and passion in sport?

What is the future of Inventive Sports?

AFA TROPHY

What advice can you give to aspiring British Asian footballers?

Jas “This is an important question. Perceptions are it’s one or the other, however they are many semi-professional Asian players in the system, who have managed to progress their football career alongside their education. It can and has been done. I have no doubt Asian players are capable of balancing both. Many have gone on to do sports science degrees in the UK or abroad”

Jas “I see the future for Inventive Sports as being very bright. We aim to continue delivering opportunities to increase Asian participation in sports through player, coach and referee development. We also see these projects changing the landscape in terms of growing the game at the grassroots. Inventive Sports can offer support to other organisations through our successes by providing specialist consultancy on how to penetrate diverse markets. Additionally, the Inventive Sports Foundation will generate and provide important funding opportunities to increase the number of Asian coaches and referees within the system. Our aim is to do everything necessary to see the Asian Diaspora represented in UK sports at all levels.”

Bal: • “First and foremost, work, train hard and have belief in yourself. • You must be confident in your ability on and off the pitch. • Choose to play/train at clubs that are FA Charter Standard and that have FA qualified coaches. • Like anything in life, in order to get somewhere you haven’t been before, you must step out of your comfort zone. If you are the best in your team, try getting into a team that is one level above yours. • Do your research on what clubs you believe will offer you a good development structure. • There are a number of good quality academies that feed into top level football clubs, try and become part of them. • Racism exists in society and it indeed rears its ugly head in football. If you face it – DO NOT ignore it. There are reporting structures in place, make sure you use them. • For the 17+ players (trying to impress semi pro / pro teams) – below advice: • Have a detailed CV that highlights your football career. • Have a video montage of yourself playing and post on YouTube. • If you have the desire to play football – consider playing for non-league teams. Also consider the USA Soccer Scholarship pathway.”

”The ‘AFA Trophy’ Fives is open to Asian players and teams and is designed to encourage, support and help develop talent at grassroots level within Asian communities throughout the UK. Regional tournaments will take place across 22 Goals Soccer Centres throughout the UK in May and June, with a finals day taking place at Goals Gillette Corner in West London on Saturday 18 August. The winners of the tournament will be rewarded with a training session by the Chelsea FC Foundation at the club’s state of the art training facility in Cobham. In addition, they will enjoy a table at the prestigious Asian Football Awards, where they will be presented with the AFA Trophy, on Tuesday 8 October at Wembley Stadium. Teams can register here: http://www.goalsfootball.co.uk/Football/PromotionAFA. aspx?event=AFA It’s a nationwide tournament. We also have the organisation Anthony Nolan present at the tournament - they will be encouraging the Asian players to register on their donor list.

MANGO JOOSE MAGAZINE


NILEEKA is the

Artistic Director of Bollywood Dance London & Creative Director of Exclusive Events (part of the Xclusive Global Ltd.). Nileeka Gunwaradene, is totally passionate about dancing and eating aubergines.

“I love to eat and cook. I love aubergines, I can say that I am obsessed with them and I have a love affair with aubergines.”

Dancing, when where and why? “I started dancing from the young age of 9, I was greatly influenced by Bollywood music on in films. Where I come from in Surrey, there were limited dance options, ballet for example. It was important for me to start to explore other means of dancing styles and to connect with the eastern Asian culture.” Who is your influence on music & dancing inspirations? “I love the performances by actresses such as Madhuri Dixit and Aishwayra, but I’m greatly influenced more by choreographers such as. Vaibhavi Merchant who are on the Indian talent shows on TV.” What style of dancing do you find most challenging? “I find modern hip hop, urban and Bollywood easy to master, it’s in my blood. Classical Indian isn’t quite as easy for me, but that’s because my body is so used to the flexibility of more commercial styles. It is a challenge switching from one to the other - but that’s all part of the job!’ What would you say your teaching style is like? “I am a bit unconventional when it comes to teaching, I feel like I am like a comedian when I teach and it’s because I am so passionate about wanting people to ‘feel’ the class and dance style. I really go for it and give it my everything. More than anything music influences the shape of how to teach a class, if it’s a sunny day I will pick a motivational happy song, it really depends on the type of day and class, there are so many mixed people in the class it can be difficult to cater for them all. I love to use British Asian musical artists such as Imran Khan, I feel this type of music helps introduce to my class the sounds of the musical instruments. I love the sound track to student of the year & cocktail”

How do you feel about being nominated for the Asian Woman of Achievements this year? “I feel excited and incredibly privileged, I found the interview process quite difficult but I loved the opportunity to be able to talk to the judge more about myself.” What advice would you give to aspiring dancers that want to follow the same route as you? “Do not underestimate the importance of education, you definitely need some talent but you need to research the industry properly, it is very important.” What do you think of the Bollywood culture and music? “We run a class for young children who come in and learn about Bollywood dance styles, music and Indian words. It is a great way to teach young children some of our Eastern culture without having to live in India. Music is a strong influence over children, it helps them become more confident, build strength and teach coordination.” So, Nileeka, when you are not dancing or teaching what do you do and how do manage your work/life balance? “I am the woman from Goodness Gracious Me that says ‘All I need is one small aubergine!” Nileeka, the aubergine queen, wow, so tell me ten things you can make out of the ‘aubergine’? “That’s easy: wasabi; Mediterranean aubergine; Ratatouille; curry; Moussaka; Sri Lankan aubergine; aubergine puree; a paste for dipping; stew; kebabs; sambol. ” I checked with Nileeka if she is a vegetarian, nope, just the ultimate aubergerian! “I find it very difficult to balance my work and home life, I love to cook for my family when we do get together. If I didn’t love what I do then it would be that much harder.” www.nileeka.com

DIG DE

CRAZY SIBLING FIGHTS, DOES IT EVER END? Oh the joys of young siblings, they really do have a unique relationship don’t they? An unbreakable bond that’s full of passion, emotion and without a doubt competition! Are your young children communicating through physical actions? Fighting for your attention? Blaming each other on ‘who started it first’? Is it driving you totally insane? Do you try and resolve the issue and in return they gang up on you instead? In that case grab a cuppa and have a blessed read of my tips to creatively sort through sibling fighting issues whilst holding on to your sanity, (well what’s left of it anyway)!

JUMP BACK TO BASICS Gather up all forms of digital media and put them away for the day, next step, as hard as it can be try and encourage your children to play with one another, involving activities based around their personal interests. Try and help your child understand the fun things about what the other sibling likes to do and get them to join in - give them a new activity to try out together - create a collage, take them for an afternoon of swimming or a picnic in the park. This allows your children feel excited and to interact in a more positive way in enjoying each other’s company.

During this day teach your children the impo of feelings. Explain to them that the other may feel hurt and upset and we don’t w make the other person feel that way. Yo help demonstrate these situations wit aid of illustrated books or cartoons tha communicate this message.

TO PUNISH OR NOT TO PUNISH? Don’t just push your kids into the naughty corner straightaway! How you deal with sibling rivalry determines how the children treat each other, if you punish them, they will punish each other. However if your approach is to work on trying to resolve the problem in a positive and respectful way then they will do the same. You should accept and acknowledge each child’s feelings and their point of view, try to help them express it to the other child and come up with solutions using their own imagination. This is a great way to teach and coach problem solving skills, anger management strategies and selfcalming techniques.

“MUUUM SHE’S COPYING ME!” Siblings always want to do what the other sibling is doing, snatching, hair pulling, screaming and crying are all forms of attention they will use to get what they want. Teaching them the importance of sharing toys, games, books will help them understand why it is ‘mean’ to hurt the other person in order to get what they want. Try and offer an alternative solution for the upset child. Ultimately children just want to be loved and have a great need to hear their parents say that they love them and are very proud of them, you should demonstrate this by taking note of generous, loving and caring behaviour your from your children and you can reward them with the use of stickers.

NIMA PATE L WINNER OF FACE OF INSPIRATION COUTURE 2013 How did you feel when you won Face of IC 2013? “It was such an incredible feeling to have won the Face of IC 2013 amongst so many beautiful and talented girls! I felt so excited, blessed and overwhelmed at the same time. It’s a honour to be part of young, vibrant and upcoming company. Im so looking forward to the coming year and all the opportunities it brings.” What’s coming up next for you? “Along with my further studies I have a few shoots lined up with Asiana Magazine, Bollywood Glitz and B4U – all to be released this year! I am also currently involved with my charity work for Miss Commonwealth Asia, which I find thoroughly satisfying as I feel it completes me as a human being. I am lucky to be surrounded by professionals in the industry who encourage my balance of personal commitments, studies and of course work.” What advice can you give to girls that want to apply next year? “I would tell them to definitely apply! It is a wonderful opportunity to meet such lovely people and make some amazing friends along the way. It’s also a great chance to be apart of such a professional company that really looks after you and ensures that the whole experience is challenging, yet fun!” What you found most challenging? “The most challenging part of the competition for me was to get over my nerves. Before I went on stage I remember feeling really scared and nervous, but as soon as I got out there and enjoyed the process rather than seeing it as a competition, it all came so much more naturally to me and straight from the heart.” 5 things you love to do? 1. Gym - I’ve always loved being active and been into my sports. This is my “me” time. 2. Spending quality time with my close family and friends. 3. Shopping! 4. Learning new healthy recipes and cooking them. 5. Going on a coffee date with my mum! Can’t beat that! 6. Travelling - learning about different cultures and lifestyle 5 of your beauty secrets? 1. I drink a large pint glass of warm lemon water every morning before breakfast - it’s great for cleansing the whole body and works wonders for your skin. 2. I also drink a glass of carrot juice every morning – lots of vitamin A for good hair, skin and nails. 3. I cleanse, tone and moisturise morning and evening without fail 4. Plenty of water during the day. 5. I wash my make up brushes on a regular basis (once a week) – I think a lot of people forget to do this but this is a must to make sure old make up, dirt and bacteria is removed so that your skin is kept clean.

S

alman, by day he works for Sky TV in sales & marketing, by night a stand up comedian who strives to satisfy his audience through nothing but laughter. The 1st British Asian to do comedy show on a UK Asian channel went viral through his self-made you tube videos, his random bursts of dances to Bollywood music on a train journey’s became a real hit. He appeared on the Venus TV show “Ek aur Ek 11” in 2008--2010, his main recognition for his wildness came about during one of the most viewed and funniest interviews in a Punjabi accent with Jay Sean on Venus TV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UChhpLXx4Ic). Salman is now working really hard for a big comeback into the comedy scene, he is already performing for “Live at the Apollo” in Hammersmith in over 4 languages on culture, habits, food and people, the crowd simply cannot get enough of him! “Coming from a conservative background I was always quite shy and being able to express by inner craziness wasn’t much of an option, it was only when I arrived to the UK I was able to explore the fun side of me, I became more confident as my you tube videos became a hit. I am always really nervous before a stand up show, but once I am out there on stage and I start to perform I can relax, especially when my audience is interacting and laughing, they either find you funny or they don’t!” Salman is inspired by the likes of Michael Mcintyre, Russell Peters and Russell Howard - all comedic legends. Watch out for Salman’s feature film releasing at the end of this year where he plays the villain with a moustache which he found a mission to grow- ‘The Anglistanis’.

“My wife called me a chav the other day, being a freshy I didn’t know what a chav was, so I asked her to explain, and my wife told me to find out for myself. So, I went to Primark!” Find out more at www.salmanmalikofficial.com

How she got into radio: “I got into radio by volunteering in local hospital radio and my passion for music drove me to it. I then worked in commercial radio before being poached by the BBC. For me radio is a very intimate medium where you can connect with listeners on quite a personal level and that’s what makes it special for me.” Biggest musical inspiration: “Growing up I was heavily into Michael Jackson and for me he will always be the ultimate performer and entertainer.” Funniest thing that’s happened to you on air: “I’ve had so many funny moments on radio, in fact I have several every day! I have a feature on my show called Khandan’s Got Talent and each and every week my callers never fail to entertain!” Most nerve wrecking moment on air and how did you dealt with it: “I think having to interview the legend Gurdas Maan in pure panjabi was quite a challenge but I somehow got through it.” 5 beauty products can you not live without? “My favourite shampoo, vitamin E face oil, concealer (to hide my sins), make up wipes and of course my favourite lippy.” In 5 years time: “I hope to be living somewhere hot with some land and a few horses. That would make very happy.”

Everyone has heard of this saying and this is ho effect. First wherever you think you can save m unplugging all plug sockets before you go to sle up to 20% off your total bill! Switch the lights the room and get a package deal from wifi to h out stick to special occasions only.

DID YOU KNOW? A restaurant meal costs six t eating at home, and consider going for lunch, w less expensive than dinner.

RECYCLE This can be such a God send, it might take some extra conscious thought but wherever you can do try to recycle. If you know relatives that have unwanted furniture then of course take it, vintage is so in right now. DID YOU KNOW? You can use newspaper to clean windows? Once I found out that newspaper works amazingly well with weak solution of vinegar and water, I started saving every copy of the times. Try your old newspaper for a streak free glass cleaning instead of spending money on expensive glass cleaner next time. It will work.

COST-CONSCIOUS CLOTHES When you have a young family, clothing can be costly so a tip I learnt from my mother was to buy unisex styles and shades, especially for newborns. Hand-me-downs are all the trends now; even at 22 I piece my mother’s clothing with new high street items all the time. Let your creative juices flow! DID YOU KNOW? Babies will learn to walk faster if they’re barefoot when they’re indoors. Use soft booties to keep feet warm when you’re outside; it’s cheaper and far more effective.

REWARDS MATTERS Just as it’s wise to keep a money diary in order to become aware of where your money is going, being crystal clear on why your family is saving can provide much-needed motivation and direction. The biggest challenge is finding motivation and keeping good habits. So set up goals throughout the year vary them from little to large, like a vacation or buying a book or that dress maybe even a game from the children. DID YOU KNOW? Having a reward system within the family will show your children how to pace themselves throughout life, it is a key concept to learn about having balance in life. It will always be a constant motivator even when times get tough.
