Winslet ‘happy’with home life


The Titanic actress and American Beauty director Mendes called time on their sevenyear marriage in March (10), insisting the break-up was amicable. Winslet has since been linked with male model Louis Dowler, and despite remaining tight-lipped about any possible new romance, she is adamant her home life with her two kids - daughter Mia Honey, nine, and six-year-old son Joe - could not be better. She tells Hello! magazine, “I look at these gigantic children and I think, wow, you’re mine! I couldn’t be more grateful. And so this time now is really about focusing on them and working when I can and when the opportunity presents itself, and I’m just very, very fortunate to have two such glorious kids.” Asked if she is currently “fulfilled and happy”, she replies, “Yes... absolutely, at the moment, regarding my family life with my children, without question. Yes, very much so, a very happy time.”


Doctors under investigation


The medical experts have met with the actress’ father Michael Lohan and his lawyer Lisa Bloom as they open the case on her physicians, who Lohan insists misdiagnosed his daughter. Bloom sent a letter to the California Attorney General back in July (10), asking for an investigation into “the unscrupulous doctors (who) overprescribe medications...,” according to That letter sparked the investigation. Reports suggest Lindsay was taking Dilaudid, Adderall, Nexium, Zoloft, Trazodone and Ambien for various medical conditions when she checked into a rehab facility following a prison spell this summer (10). Medics have since determined she had been misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and prescribed medication she should not have taken.



Struggles in the spotlight

The actress shot to stardom as Bella Swan in the first Twilight film in 2008 and she has dominated headlines ever since, following rumours of a romance with her co-star Robert Pattinson. But life in the spotlight comes at a price for shy Stewart, who finds it hard to make new friends. She tells Britain’s Sunday Telegraph, “I have friends who say, ‘Hey, we are in a restaurant today, want to come? A bunch of us are hanging out.’ And yet I am like, ‘Do you want to go to someone’s house? It would be so much fun. Bring everyone round to my house!’” And she always worries that people she meets for the first time already have a stack of preconceptions about her, based on what they’ve read and heard. She adds, “It is weird never to be just some girl. Everybody knows me, so I can never be just a new person with somebody. New people always have an impression of me and I am so aware of it, and it probably changes me.” 8 TULIP OCTOBER 1-15, 2010

Double Bonanza

Taapsee is making waves in Tamil films too. This pretty girl who made debut in K Raghavendra Rao directed Jhummandi Naadam has signed two films in Tamil -Aadukalam and Vandhaan Vendraan . She hopes to hit gold in both the languages so that she becomes hugely popular like Nayanatara, Shriya and Trisha who are known in both the markets. She caught the attention in Telugu purely for her no-holds barred skin show in the film. But she says she won’t be doing the same in Tamil. She said: “I really do not want to go overboard and I am not in for exposing! My performance should fetch me more films rather than my skin show.”


To hit the screens


Rajnikant’s Robot is set to release on October 1st. The film’s theatrical trailer was launched in Hyderabad. Tota Kanna Rao who bagged the movie’s distribution rights for Andhra Pradesh for a whopping Rs 27 Crores conducted the press meet and came in front of the media for the first time. Sun TV Pictures’ COO Hansraj Saxena said that the movie would be hitting the screens on October 1st with record number of prints. “For Tamil and Hindi versions, we are planning more than 2000 prints. For Telugu version, we are yet to get the final call from Tota Kannarao but I am sure we would release in Telugu with highest number of prints,” he said.



Hits 7 crore

‘Komaram Puli’ heroine Nikisha Patel, senior actor and producer Murali Mohan, several other top producers Dil Raju, N V Prasad, Bellamkonda Suresh, Ashwini Dutt, Maganti Babu, Prasanna and director Meher Ramesh attended the press meet. Despite some bad reviews from the viewers that we have received, the telugu movie Komaram Puli has reportedly grossed a whooping Rs. 7 crore in the opening day collection and the number is rising. Power star Pawan Kalyan’s movie, Komaram Puli hit the screens on September 10 and the movie received a mixed response from the viewers. While many said the movie was not up to the expectations, many other still felt the movie was a great entertainment. Despite the great opening collection, Komaram Puli is expected to lose the grip in the box office in the coming weeks due to the negative reviews the movie is getting in the online review portals. Directed by SJ Surya and starring Pawan Kalyan and Nikesha Patel, Komaram Puli features a good cop trying to take down terrorist Nixon. They also features Krishna, Brahmaji, Ali, Girish Karnad, Gopinath, Shriya Saran, Manoj Bajpai, Charan Raj, Nassar and Jyothi in the main roles. 10 TULIP OCTOBER 1-15, 2010




About partner


Leander Paes said that he is still unsure about his doubles partner in the crucial Davis Cup tie against Brazil. Without naming Mahesh Bhupati, Paes talked a lot about available options in the Indian team and said the non-playing captain S P Mishra would take the call as to who will partner him on second day of the tie on Saturday. “It is good to have options and it is going to be tough on the captain to decide. I have full confidence in S P Mishra whom I have known for many years. He has been our lucky captain and so it is up to him to decide,” said Paes, who has scripted many memorable triumphs at the international levels. The most successful professional player of India, Paes let his emotions out taking pride on serving the country that he loves most. “For sure, this tie is something special for me. I still remember my first match in Davis Cup against Japan in Jaipur. It was 18-16 in the fifth set and we won the tie,” he said on his five-set doubles match that he won along with Zeeshan Ali as India to thrash Japan.



Targets London

New US Open champion Rafael Nadal has turned his attention to winning the season-ending Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. The world number one completed the career Grand Slam with his victory over Novak Djokovic in New York. It leaves the 24-year-old having to reassess his goals and when asked what was left to achieve in the game in his post-match press conference, Nadal targeted success at ther O2 Arena. “The Masters Cup is probably the last big tournament that I didn’t win,” he said. “It’s true that it is the most difficult title for me to win, because we play it in indoors, on a very quick surface, so it’s going to be always very difficult if we don’t change that. “But at the same time it is a challenge for me to keep improving, to have the chance to play well there and to have the chance to win. So that’s what I’m going to try this year.” Following the conclusion of the US Open, Nadal and Roger Federer remain the only two players confirmed in the elite eight-man tournament which features the eight best players of the year on the ATP World Tour.


Backs Hamilton to win


McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh feels a “battle-hardened” Lewis Hamilton can come up tops this Formula One season. For the second time this season, Hamilton relinquished his lead of the championship on Sunday when he crashed out on the opening lap of the Italian Grand Prix at Monza after colliding with the left rear wheel of Felipe Massa’s Ferrari. It was the second retirement in three races for the 25-year-old, two bitter lows to sandwich the euphoric high of his Belgian Grand Prix triumph 16 days ago. The 2008 world champion now trails Red Bull’s Mark Webber by five points with five races remaining, the Australian now leading the way for the third time this year. Certainly Hamilton’s mental strength, as much as anything, is being tested to the limit by such a tumultuous journey. “Lewis’ career has often been a rollercoaster, but then he is a dynamic and exciting driver,” said Whitmarsh. “He’s been through some great championship campaigns, through a few rollercoasters before, and so he’s fairly battle-hardened. “Of course both he and us were disappointed with what happened on Sunday, but he is massively resilient.

Dr P. Raghu Ram and Dr Vyjayanthi got married in year 1997, It was partially love and partially arranged marriage for both of them. As they are into thirteenth year of their happy married life TULIP gets a chance to speak to them.


ife is the sum of experience that we encounter as we go through different phases. As human beings when we face a challenge in life, it makes a big difference when you have a soul mate who is always there for you no matter what may come. Dr Ram agrees with me as he has his better half taking care of all the things around. Even the tiniest thing catches her attention and she makes sure that its smooth sail for all the family members. Love to us means being able to understand each other’s strength & weakness; to stand shoulder to shoulder in both good and bad times; to be forgiving & level – headed & finally, and most importantly, to always have the needs of the family as our first priority. Dr vyjayanthi says that both the families had our marriage in their minds and they encouraged us to know each other well and were quite involved in our meetings at an early stage. We understood the likings and disliking of each other, what makes the other person happy we knew it pretty well before our wedding and that’s the reason it did not take very long to understand each other after marriage. Dr Ram says: we moved to UK after marriage and have spent almost 10 years there; life is not easy at all in a foreign country. With two parallel and highly challenging careers and our busy schedules we made sure that it does not affect our personal life. Our two children sai and Krishna were born while we were in UK. We did our best to ensure that our on call commitments in the hospital did not clash so that our children were well looked after. Our parents frequently visited UK in turns to look after our kids. So, in many ways we were blessed to get the support of our family.

SPECIAL BONDING Returning to India happened when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, soon after seeing her reports we both realized that there are no dedicated breast centers in India and there are very few specialists who deal exclusively with breast disease. Breast surgery is not a subspecialty and in fact that there is a huge discrepancy in the delivery of breast health care in India was very obvious. Much as we had established career with lucrative opportunities & a settled status in UK, both vyjayanthi and I took a conscious decision to return to India. I wanted to devote the rest of my professional career to improve the delivery of breast healthcare in my motherland. The past three years has given me far greater satisfaction than the pleasure of having lived in the UK for 10 years. The lord has made me realize that there is no place in the world sweeter than home. We are a close knit family. My father, mother and her mother, my wife and children all of us live together. Dr vyjayanthi says raghu is a perfectionist. He is extremely hardworking and perseveres at whatever he takes up. It is these traits that have made him achieve many milestones in his chosen career at a very young age. Despite his busy schedule, he makes time for family every single day. He very much likes to socialize and there are not many people in the city who do not know him. He is blessed with oodles of energy that allows him to be here there and everywhere, and yet, I always see a devoted father in him who loves spending time with the kids. Dr Ram admires his wife for always being honest & sincere to her profession & for her uwnwavering commitment to family. To her, family comes first and the rest follows. I have been truly blessed to have a family that is so very caring.

Marriage is like friendship, caught on fire. In beginning it’s a flame, very pretty often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our marriage becomes as coals, deep burning and unquenchable.

Detox Your Body Detox Your Body for a healthier you. When your body is full of toxins, it will start to display signs such as tired and aching body, fatigued mind and low energy level. Pay close attention to your body and when you notice these symptoms, it’s time for you to detox your body. To prevent massive toxins build up inside your body, you should detox your body with a detox diet preferably once a year. Detoxification is an approach for you to get in tune with your body after awhile and cleanse the internal systems to remove the toxin build up. It may be hard for you to accept but sooner or later, you will need to acknowledge the fact that we ingest huge amount of toxins into our body regularly and vast amount of it found its way into our body through the foods that we eat daily and also from the air that we breathe in. Health experts believe that these toxins build up is the source of a broad range of diseases ranging from heart diseases to more serious illnesses like cancer. For this reason, a lot of people are now putting aside some time and energy to care and detox their bodies and start a new and healthier way of living. If you are really interested in body detoxification and how to detox your body, you can begin the detoxification process by reducing the consumption of foods that are identified to have high level of toxin such as alcohol, saturated fats, coffee and sugar. Smoking has also been identified as one of the major contributors to toxin build up in our body. Vegetables and fresh fruits, which are known to be good and healthy for us, are often found to have pesticides on them. To make things worse, the air that we inhale also contributes to the toxin build up inside our body and we have the pollution to thank for this. As a result, it’s useful that you find out in the beginning of the detoxification process which of these has toxin and how to get rid of them. You should also seek a doctor’s advice before undertaking any type of detoxification process particularly those on medications. We need to detoxify our system from time to time to prevent the body from illness. Detoxification is a must for all as it can prevent several health hazards and can also make you feel better in a lot many ways. Whether you want to prevent your body from the after effects of a big meal that you had last night or you just want to shed a few pounds, you can try detoxification to cleanse your system and detoxify the whole body from the after effects of your food, drinks, drugs, smoking and above all, the polluted environment.

A few ways to detoxify your body easily are noted herein: Drink water Water in its purest form is the best body cleanse till date. Drink ample amount of water regularly to detoxify your body in the most natural way. 8 to 10 glasses of water is recommended by experts for a normal adult. If you are looking for a better alternative to water, you can try tea. But of course, drink black tea, with no added milk or sugar. Sugar is fattening and would also interfere with your process of digestion. You can also add few drops of lemon juice to the water; it is one of the best detoxifying agents and can also be a pleasant change for you. But make sure you use fresh juice of lemon; squeeze lemon and add the juice directly to the water.

Have Fruits in Abundance Fresh fruits are the best detoxifying agents apart from being the best source of fiber. Fruits can ease the process of cleansing and detoxification to a large extent. Berries are the best cleansers till date; have blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries as much as you can. Berries are the best source of photochemical and antioxidants and can help in preventing cardiac disorders and cancer. These fruits are rich in fiber, vitamins and water and is the most potent source of body cleanse and detoxification. Cranberry juice is also a potential source of energy and can help in detoxification; it is also known for cleansing the kidneys and treating bladder infections.

Have More Fiber the best sources of fiber are fresh fruits, green vegetables and whole grains. By adding these food types to your regular diet you can actually improve your digestive system and cleanse the bowels as well as lose excess body weight almost naturally. Have lots of nuts, lentils, beans, oatmeal, pastas, whole grain bread and dried fruits.

Have a Liquid Diet Once In A While going on a liquid diet would drastically cleanse your system. It would also give some rest to your digestive system which is essential. Though there are many detox kits available in the market these days, but it is always better to opt for the natural detox options. Natural fruit juices, vegetable juice, coconut water and plain water can be very helpful in cleansing your body. Aside all these detox, you must have vitamin and herbal supplements to support your system.

Epsom Salts Baths Epsom salts, combined with hot water can draws toxins out of the body. This works by having the hot water draws toxins out of the body and brings it to the skin surface, and while the water cools it extracts toxins from the skin. When epsom salt is absorbed through the skin in a bath, it helps to draw toxins from the body, sedates the nervous system, reduces swelling, relaxes muscles, is a natural emollient, exfoliate, and much more.

Below is the actual Epsom salt Detox bath recipe: 1 cup epsom salts handful of sea salt

2 tablespoons of bath oil You have to pour all of the ingredients into the tub while the tub is filling up. Epsom salt gets lumpy when exposed to wet bathroom air. For a typical bathtub use about 1 cup of salts. For one of those garden style tubs use 2 cups. Soak for about 20 minutes for the full effect of the salts. It is well worth it and your tired aching muscles will be so very pleased with you. Don’t forget a good book to accompany you while you soak your worries away. PLEASE NOTE: Do not take hot baths if you have high blood pressure, heart, diabetic or kidney troubles. Nevertheless, you will come across several detoxifying agents and kits, but be careful while choosing one for yourself. You must opt for a method to suit your needs and your internal system as well

What products do you need? In order to efficiently clean your face you need a makeup remover and a product for washing your face .

Why both? You need a cleanser for removing the make-up because the product for washing your face may not be enough to remove any mascara or blush. It is used in order to remove the cleanser trails. For the eyes you should need a special, gentle cleanser.

What if you don’t use a make-up? You should still use a cleanser to remove the dust trails and other impurities you accumulate in only one day. Try once and you’ll see the cotton wool you use will be dirty even if you haven’t used any make-up. it’s essential to choose a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type and for your skin’s needs. Those women with combination or oily skin should look for a stronger cleanser containing oil-absorbing ingredients; those with dry or sensitive skin should look for a milder formula with more nourishing and moisturizing ingredients. It’s crucial to select skincare products that are oil-free (don’t contain oil), non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), hypoallergenic (won’t irritate the skin) and non-acnegenic (won’t cause acne). Today most of the facial cleansers contain many active ingredients – alpha hydroxy acids, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, essential oil, vitamins, minerals, glycerin, elastin, sodium laureth sulfate. You should wash your face at least twice a day (in the morning and in the evening) in order to keep your skin clear and flawless. 40 TULIP OCTOBER 1-15, 2010

How to wash your face properly Step One. Wash your hands. Wash your hands every time before cleansing your face, applying makeup or touching your face. If your hands are dirty you may rub bacteria or dirt onto your skin. Use an antibacterial soap and gently wash your hands with lukewarm water.

Step Two. Tie your hair. Tie your hair – this way it will be more comfortable for you when you wash your face.



Step Three. Remove your makeup. Remove your makeup with a mild makeup remover. Although facial cleansers remove all kind of makeup effectively you had better remove it prior to washing your face. Choose a mild makeup remover that suits your skin type and first remove the eye makeup.

Step Four. Wet your face. Splash your face with lukewarm water to prepare your skin for the cleanser and to open your pores for a deeper cleansing.

Step Five. Apply the cleanser. Place a small amount (a dime-size) of the cleansing product on your palm or to a washcloth. Using your fingertips or a brush gently rub the cleanser all over your face. Make sure you cover all areas – chin, forehead, nose, cheeks, neck. Massage your face with gentle circular motions for a minute. Remember: never remove the cleanser immediately after you apply it – let it penetrate your skin for a few minutes (it usually takes one/ two minutes).

Step Six. Rinse your face . Rinse your face to remove the cleanser. Splash your face with water several times until you feel that the cleanser has rinsed off completely. You can use a face sponge, a muslin cloth or cotton pads to remove the cleansing product.

Step Seven. Splash your face with cold water. Rinse your face with cold water to close the open pores and to improve your blood circulation.

Step Eight. Gently blot your face . Pat your face with a clean towel.

Step Nine. Tone your skin. If your skin is oily or combination it’s crucial to use a facial toner. The toners remove any traces of makeup, dirt and oil that your cleanser may have missed. They also reduce pores, eliminate oil and refine the skin. What they do in addition to making your skin feel tighter, is prepare the skin for the moisturizer.

Step Ten. Moisturize your skin. Apply a moisturizer or a hydrating face cream every time after washing your face to moisturize your face. Again make sure the moisturizer is appropriate for your skin type. OCTOBER 1-15, 2010 TULIP 41
