EDITOR’S note Catching Up With Royalty Change is the law of nature and feeling motivated to catch up with the royalty is an ambition of every individual. Making lifestyle change is challenging but is a must to adjust to modern lifestyle. Fashion is an evolution for better looks and transformation of personality. Royalty always inspires transformation in life style. In spite of the fact that many people are allergic to the word fashion and changes in looks, but in the heart of hearts everyone wants to look good and accept fashion as it comes. Change in lifestyle is a gradual process that takes time and requires social support. Once the society is ready to accept a change, the difficult part of being outclassed or isolated does not bother anyone. Your fashion statement is a map that will guide you on this journey of life. As the world has shrunk due to media revolution, the dressing sense matters a lot as everyone wants to look as petty and beautiful as ever. The youth have become more adventurists compared to in their 40s and 50s. They are more specific about their likes and dislikes in choice of dresses. The youth measure fashion and lifestyle according to international trends and probably that is why the youth world over look so trendy. Fashion is very important in our life as it gives a good impression if we are dressed according to the event with latest style. The branded garments have changed the entire game of dressing. They do detailing of clothes and have clothes for all occasions and events of life. Be it marriage, party, gathering, office or casual dresses. Fashion has become the buss-word for the youth in India it is accepted by people of all class and culture. Indians have accepted fashion in its own way. In metropolitan cities where men and women work in offices, fashion has become an integral part of personality as it gives classy look. Fashion designers work hard to create new designs, which can attract people and accept them. Designers take care of the beliefs of various cultures and people associated with them. Fashion designers not only take care of the dresses, but they also take care of accessories like designer belts, purses, clutch bags, bangles, scarfs and mufflers to enhance fashionable clothes. The latest fashion designers and stylists use various type of material to decorate the outfit and accessories in order to improve the look of the dress. The latest changes in style and fashion has left little difference between dresses worn by the royalty and the common person.

It's a symbol of my pride, courage, bravery, sacrifices, honour and peace. It's not just my style but my saviour, my identity, my distinctiveness. It's not just a practice, but a responsibility, a secure, approach, a union of pure thoughts of my WaheGuru endowed in me.

It's not just an act of self glorification, but an armour, a dignity, a realization of self worth among the horde of mankind. Be known for who you are, what you were born with, not what you made of yourself disregarding your faith. I am blessed that my Waheguru chose me for this. I am proud to be a Sikh.

HEALTH & FITNESS CAN MAKE OR BREAK NEXT GENERATION Punjabis From Fortitude to Fatigue By Jasneet Singh According to the National Mental Health Survey report on Punjab (2016-17) one out of eight Punjabis is suffering from mental illness and 80% Punjabis are not getting any access to treatment. This is a matter of great concern for the youth in Punjab.It is important to understand mental or neurological disorders and get proper treatment rather than suffer silently with stigma. Psychosocial problems can be treated like any other ailment, so accept reality and get proper treatment, before it becomes a serious matter of concern. Mental health of a person is as important as physical health.According to the latest report of World Health Organisation, “An estimated 500 million people suffer from mental or neurological disorders or from psychosocial problems such as depression.� Some of them suffer neurological disorders due to excessive drinking and drug abuse. Many of them suffer silently, some suffer alone and most of them never receive any medical treatment.About 14% of the global burden of disease has been attributed to neuropsychiatric disorders, mostly due to the chronically disabling nature of depression and other common mental disorders, alcohol-use and substance-use disorders, and psychoses.National Mental Health Survey report on Punjab (2016-17) also indicated that every 6th Punjabi has suffered from mental illness and every 8th is still suffering The survey found that in Punjab, the total lifetime prevalence of mental illnesses was 18% (national level: 13.6%) and the current prevalence was 13% (national level:10.5%). It means, there are nearly 21.9 lakh people suffering from mental illness in Punjab. Only 20% of them (4.38 lakh) have access to treatment and rest 80% are not getting any treatment. The survey mentions that treatment gap was 80% for common mental disorders, 57% for severe mental disorders, 81% for alcohol and drug abuse disorders and 82% for depressive disorders. Since most of mental or psychosocial problems are not life threatening people do not take them seriously.

Some people do not want to talk about their psychosocial problems or depression and keep on suffering silently taking into account social stigmaof mentally instable person. However, because they stress the separate contributions of mental and physical disorders to disability and mortality, they might have entrenched the alienation of mental health from mainstream efforts to improve health and reduce poverty. The burden of mental disorders is likely to have been underestimated because of inadequate appreciation of the connectedness between mental illness and other health conditions. Because these interactions are protean, there can be no health without mental health. Mental disorders increase risk for communicable and non-communicable diseases, and contribute to unintentional and intentional injury.

74


www.sikhvogue.com

Conversely, many health conditions increase the risk for mental disorder, and comorbidity complicates helpseeking, diagnosis, and treatment, and influences prognosis. Health services are not provided equitably to people with mental disorders, and the quality of care for both mental and physical health conditions for these people could be improved Ignorance by the people and their relatives about mental health has drawn attention to the importance of medical intervention to resolve the problems due to mental disorders. We need to develop and evaluate psychosocial interventions that can be integrated into management of communicable and non-communicable diseases.

OCTOBER 17 - JANUARY 18

Health-care systems should be strengthened to improve delivery of mental health care, by focusing on existing programmes and activities. An explicit mental health budget needs to be allocated in government health care system. Mental health affects progress towards the achievement of several Millennium Development Goals, such as promotion of gender equality and empowerment of women, reduction of child mortality, improvement of maternal health. Mental health awareness needs to be integrated into all aspects of health and social policy, health-system planning, and delivery of primary and secondary general health care.

NewsMakers Manjit Kaur Emerges As First Woman To Bag The Perdana Young Indian Entrepreneur Award 2017

Manjeet Kaur

Stand shoulder to shoulder with your husband and lead where you can. Always remain positive and surround yourself with positive people. These are some words of advise from Manjit Kaur, the first woman to win the Perdana Young Indian Entrepreneurs Award 2017 (PYIEA). The Malaysian award recognises the telecommunication-based business she started seven years ago with her husband Rajender Singh.

The award, organised by the Malaysian Indian Entrepreneurs Cooperative (MIEC), was first introduced in 2004. It is open to all Malaysian Indians aged between 25 to 40 who have been into business for at least five years and a minimum annual turnover of RM1 million for the past five years. It recognises the achievements of outstanding entrepreneurs who have established and have full grown business, with the main aim being to ‘recognise their entrepreneurial spirit’.

“We took a friendly loan from my father as we didn’t have sufficient funds when we started. I’m happy to report that we’ve paid him back with interest,” she told Asia Samachar in an interview.

“Some of the award winners have really gone through quite a bit. And it’s good to see a woman finally landing the award,” said Ranjit Singh, an audit expert and partner in a Singapore-listed Axcelasia Inc, one of the judges for the awards.

The 36-year-old entrepreneur is the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Divine Spectrum Sdn Bhd which has a staff strength of 105 people and posted a turnover of RM5.9 million in 2016.

Beside PYIEA, Manjit also won the Telecommunication Service Provider category award presented by Malaysian Health Minister Dr S Subramanian

HER JOURNEY Manjit went through her schooling at Convent Johor Bahru and completed her BA (Hon) in Accounts and Finance at Help University Kuala Lumpur. Shen then pursued ACCA at FTC Singapore. She is now a member of FCCA (UK) & CA(M). She started as an auditor at Ernst & Young. Four years later, she joined Shell Malaysia. Two years down the road, she and her husband launched Divine Spectrum, with YTL’s YES Project as their first project. At peak periods, Manjit managed 350 engineers working on projects for Malaysian telecommunication providers like Celcom, Maxis, Digi, Umobile and Webe. Along the way, she had also managed the company’s diversification into businesses like equipment rentals and civil works.

“I thank my parents, Harban Singh and Nirmal Kaur, for their continued support, unconditional love and prayers throughout our journey,” she said. The mother of four kids – Thrishal Raj, Gaurav Raaj, Sonam Raj & Sonia Raj – spoke to Asia Samachar. Q&A WITH MANJIT KAUR: What is your advice to our Punjabi boys and girls who want to go into business? Be confident. Business is risky. Always be positive, have positive vibes, surround yourself with positive people, act positive, think positive thoughts, speak positive words, play positive music and uplifting songs, keep your environment positive. Always be reasonable, practical, make sure you have financial knowledge, be financially wise, be confident, know your market. Use your strength. Tap all opportunities around you. What did you learn from this competition?

80

Have a ‘No give-up attitude’. Lots of ups and downs, especially for females. There is cheating as well. Hence, I learnt this lesson: Do not trust anyone. Investigate first. Do your own study…research. Due diligence is required. You need some maturity in thinking to make decisions. Maturity is important and be a sole decision maker. What are the challenges running a business as a husband and wife team? I have the best team ever with my husband. We make the best of partners. We are very matured. At the work place, we are very professional. We do not allow our personal life to interfere with our professional life.Work is strictly work. We work at the same wave-length. My husband has always supported me and believed in me. He is from the telecommunication industry. Both of us run the company together. What is your advice to women, who are also home-makers, who want to go into business? I have four kids, between the ages of 5 to 9. I have a helper. In running a business and a home, multitasking is important. You need to know what you want in life. Then, you have to start from somewhere.

You got to think outside the box. In my case, my dad has always supported me, even financially and I am very thankful for that. One of my success is the ability to repay the loan I took from my parents completely with interest. I am happy to have supportive parents and spouse. Breaking society taboos, like girls only take care of the house, has to be challenged tactfully. As ladies, we have to work harder and smarter. Use Google and investigate before going into a business. Even if you are not able to go to an office and work, you can still stay home and earn. There are lots of home based businesses to explore. Just remember, be equal to your husband and earn equally. Stand shoulder to shoulder and lead the way. We have the knowledge. And with age and experience, we have the ability to explore new pastures.

Blinged-Out Ring Accessories

Gold remains the popular choice for wedding rings for men and women, but we know more than one bride who longs to find the right balance of masculinity and quirk in an offbeat wedding ring for the special man in her life. On this quest of finding a special ring that is as unique as your relationship.

Antique Wedding Ring

Quirky, Anti-Cheating Ring Nope, …we are not kidding. There is actually something called that! We believe all marriages are based on trust and found this to be a great option for someone who can handle the humour. Notorious movie-style cheaters who sneak off their wedding ring and slip into their pockets are in for a shock. This ring is actually engraved on the inside with large letters that say “I’m Married” that leaves an impression on the ring finger. So there is no chance of faking that there is no spouse in the game.

If the groom-to-be is a man who looks like he just walked out of Saville Row, he will love the distinct fashion statement a Signet ring provides. You could choose an engraving of a popular emblem, a family crest, initials or something completely personal to the two of you. The latter could become a family heirloom to cherish.

Meet The Nation's First Known Sikh Woman To Serve As A City Mayor By LOS ANGELES TIMES

with a sharp crack of the gavel, Preet Didbal made history this month as the first known Sikh woman in the nation to preside as a city mayor. In Northern California’s Yuba City, Didbal’s rise to mayor was celebrated as a long-awaited affirmation of the Sikh community’s contributions in California. Yuba City’s annual Sikh parade attracts upward of 100,000 visitors every November to honor the teachings of Guru Nanak, founder of Sikhism, who preached the religion’s main tenets: Selfless service to others and the belief in one god who sees all people as equal. The religious minority has an estimated 500,000 followers in the U.S. and 25 million worldwide, and Didbal’s ascension comes as Sikhs have made political inroads nationwide.

But those gains have been accompanied by heightened discrimination since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Followers have faced violent, sometimes deadly, attacks by people who mistake Sikhs for Muslims, especially men who wear a customary turban and unshorn beard. A single mother of a college freshman and political independent who has been registered as a “no party preference” voter for her entire adult life, Didbal took a challenging path to becoming mayor of the city where she was born in the late 1960s. As the daughter of farmworkers who immigrated from the Punjab region of India 50 years ago, Didbal talks about picking peaches alongside her parents and overcoming the cultural barriers faced by Sikh women, particularly after she was raped as a young woman.

95


She earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s of business administration on her way to jobs at the state Department of Corrections and State Compensation Insurance Fund, where she currently works.

But I’m also a rape survivor. In 1988, I was raped. I went through a sexual assault in this very community. It changed my life forever and it changed my parents’ lives.

Didbal, 49, was elected to the Yuba City council in 2014. The mayor is elected annually by the five-member council. The Los Angeles Times sat down with Didbal following her first time presiding as mayor at a council meeting. Her comments have been edited for length and clarity. What is the significance of becoming the nation’s first known Sikh mayor? It’s breaking barriers because as a Sikh woman, just in the general culture, we are subservient, even growing up. Say a son is born, there’s all these festivities that happen. A girl is born, and it’s usually uh-oh. I don’t have any brothers, only sisters. Girls are raised to… make sure they can cook and clean. You have to go to school and come home and do chores, while my cousins — who were boys — would be able to play. Our questions were always, “Why?” There usually was never really a great answer to it other than, “That’s the only way we know how.” Then there was this rude awakening that happened when my parents finally just stepped back and said, “It’s time for us to learn from our kids but, more importantly, our grandkids.” While campaigning for the city council, did you encounter any obstacles because you’re a Sikh woman? Not because I’m Sikh, but more because I’m a woman. And it came more directly with my mom. Because my mom was asked by the older generation, her generation, “Why is your daughter doing this? This is a man’s world.” My mom’s response would be: “Why do we educate our girls then? This is what she wants to do and I’m going to stand by her.” I got a large amount of support. The community is wonderful in that sense. I think also because we have a large Sikh community, we know of each other. Our brown color doesn’t matter. I’ve never had to directly deal with prejudice of any kind. I’m not going to pretend it doesn’t exist. It does. But I never faced it myself. We are having a moment of reckoning for men who have abused and mistreated women in the workplace, and in general. What has been your experience? I have had to deal with it.

96

We left this town for almost three years because of the scrutiny and the judgment, the shame that was placed upon us. … I went to UC Davis trying to continue school and I had drop out because I was not mentally OK. And I was losing my parents because, in our culture, it was a situation where they told me not to go somewhere and I went anyway. It was just basically a graduation gettogether. The ramifications were more: “Well, we told you not to go. This is why you don’t go to co-ed events.” So it was more you. It was your fault for going. Your fault versus the other way. There was a lot that we, as a family, needed to heal. I started speaking about the rape about two years ago when my daughter turned 16. That was … a critical moment in my life. One, because my daughter was of the age where she was going to start driving and, being an athlete, she had events that she was going to. It just came to a point where it was time that I had to tell her. It was the toughest conversation that I’ve ever had to have, and at the same time it was the most freeing — to hear my daughter say, “You need to talk about this mom.” The women speaking up right now, more power to them.


www.sikhvogue.com

Trust me, for somebody who’s gone through it at the severity that I did, I held on to that shame for a lot of years. A lot of years because of judgment that society puts on you.

We’re expanding our roads from two lanes to four lanes. All of that is to bring in more economic growth.

Many Americans are unfamiliar with Sikhism. What would you tell them about the religion and the role it plays in your life?

For me, it’s all the of stuff that’s going on right now — the divide. I am just like, “You know what, think about why you ran for office.” Are you serving the people or are you serving your personal agendas? Are you being rubber stamped into a party? I certainly don’t want to be rubber stamped.

It plays a role in my life every day because that’s who I am. I grew up in a very traditional Indian Sikh family. Just being born and raised here there were a lot of things that, customarily, we were taught. We’re supposed to not cut our hair, keep it long, and that’s one of the symbolisms of Sikh men and women. But as you can see, my hair is cut. There’s a blended culture, and I’ve been fortunate enough that my parents were open to that blending. I think that’s kept us level-headed and able to grow.

Why are you a political independent?

I meditate in the morning. . Our biggest thing as Sikhs is to serve our community. It’s called seva. My goal is that every day when I go home and go to bed and put my head on the pillow, everything I had done during the day has been in good faith and a good heart What are your top concerns as Mayor? The biggest concern is pension [liability]. That’s across the board. That’s something that every city is dealing with. What we want to do is bring more economic growth. We’re expanding our roads from two lanes to four lanes. All of that is to bring in more economic growth.

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

Pankaj Kumar Baitha is a resident of the village of Maniyarpur, in the Kalyanpur district of Samastipur. About the initiative he comments enthusiastically: “I came to know about this endeavour during a meeting on agriculture, which I attended at my village. People of the foundation were talking about an agri van. I was excited when I heard about this van, and was curious to know what it was all about. I reached the van with a diseased sample of my crop, as this was a matter of grave concern for me and was soon explained about the disease, its causes and how it could be effectively controlled. The staff also encouraged me to pose questions on other farming-related issues like seed variety, crop diseases, soil testing, technologies available and different government schemes. I went back a satisfied man because not only was the disease of my crop identified, but I was provided logical and organic solutions too. Besides this, nutrient information, on the basis of soil testing, helps us save money as well. This is important too.” What is interesting to note is that the

98

mobile agri clinic, which is armed with the latest technology, is designed to address people from different backgrounds. For example if a farmer would like to know about a particular disease affecting a particular crop, but is not able to define it in his or her own words, the digital library comes to the rescue. With a vast collection of photographs of ingenious crops and possible diseases that could plague them, the farmer can easily identify the problem by looking at the photograph displayed on a 32 inches LCD screen; once this is done, the process of eradication is started, but in an ‘organic’ way: prevention, bio remedies and then any chemical intervention, if required. A print-out of this information is also provided, which can be photocopied and distributed in case the need stands. The public address system reads out the information supplied on the sheet, in a concise form, enabling those who cannot read, to listen, understand and comprehend. The mobile clinic also hosts a soil-testing facility. Diverse information material is also provided on a wide variety of subjects.

Says Arvind Rana, Program Leader, Agriculture Development Programme, Sehgal Foundation: “Our long association with farmers has helped us understand their needs and challenges. There exists a gap between information present, its retrieval, understanding and application. This is what led us to this initiative. If you ask me, how this initiative is different from other similar initiatives, I would readily say that this mobile agri clinic is unique in its basic concept and approach. Besides information on agricultural and agronomical aspects including allied fields too, information is also provided on all government schemes valid for that particular state. The registration process enables us to maintain a record of the number and type of queries, besides other factors, which serve as useful indicators for trends and patterns.” Ram Dular Mahto, resident of village Mahabalipur, in the Kalyanpur district of Samastipur adds: “When the van visited our village, I asked about the problem my


Brinjal crop was facing; the staff registered me and explained about the damage done and, most importantly, about how it can be controlled. I was happy with the solution. The best part is that the van visits our village from time to time, which makes it easier to follow-up on queries.” “Besides informing us about various agriculturerelated issues, both through the visual medium and also orally, we are also informed about all government-sponsored schemes. In fact, there is also a toll free number where I can pose questions related to almost any problem,” says Aditya Bhushan, a resident of the village Ladaura, in the Kalyanpur district of Samastipur. The initiative, which started around 1.5 months ago, has seen approximately 817 registrations so far and has covered around 40 villages. Of the 20 days in a month, 2 villages are covered a day, with the van remaining for a period of about 4 hours in a particular village before moving on to the next. This enables even women to partake in the initiative. “Though the challenge remains in regularly updating and customizing the digital library and information material, the response has been overwhelming, which is why there are plans to take this initiative to other areas like Jharkhand too, amongst others,” says Rana.

are not quite as simple as black and white. Monochrome symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.

Black and White attire still holds an affectionate place in the hearts of the people all over the world. This Monochrome palette have an incomparable mystique and mood, which cannot be explained. Life is about the grey areas. Things are seldom black and white, even when we wish they were and think they should be, explore this nuanced terrain in monochrome dresses. Monochrome changes our mind and attitude about colors in life, as we grow to our maturity. Dresses have the power to tame even the wild-manest and present them as well cultured in black and white. You can see the good in things much more easily rather than getting enraged by colors. Stylist Photo Courtesy

IN QUEST OF PERFECT MARRIAGE Invest More In Marriage Less In Palaces By Jasneet Singh Why some marriages last and others fade away in the glitter of glamour, pomp and show? The extravagant spending on the wedding does not ensure a happy married life. Wedding is only a one-time gratification, but marriage is a lifetime investment. Wedding is a solemn ceremony when beau and belle take vows to remain together for the rest of life. It is a desire of every human being to find a perfect partner in marriage. In Punjab parents, relatives and family members make it a point to display opulence while wedding their protégés with fulsomeness. Marriages are made in heaven but God will not come down on earth to save a marriage. The lust for wealth, extravagant spending on wedding cannot make marriage a success. So it is futile to spend crores of rupees in show off. The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the wedding ceremony’s extravagant display. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife which makes the marriage work.

146

Lasting relationships in marriages, regardless of whether the couple is married or not, is mainly based on a mix of genetics, physical appearance and emotions. The marriages made in the heart rust with time, the matrimonies made in the mind lack intimacy, the weddings made in heart and mind last. It’s not wealth, it’s relationship, understanding and love which binds the couple together. Big fat weddings in Punjab may look glamorous but it’s not a formula ensure happy wedding life. If extravagant weddings were a symbol for happy marriages, there would be no post marriage depression and divorces. These days about 25% of the marriages don’t work in upper middle class and affluent because neither the boy nor the girl is willing to adjust in the new circumstances.


OCTOBER 17 - JANUARY 18

Is it not strange that in Punjab efforts should be to restore the true meaning of marriage and its celebrations without any financial burden on the bride's or groom's side, as it leads to a vicious circle of loans, bankruptcy and suicide. The parents of the bride and the groom should learn that they do not climb one notch up by wasteful wedding expenditure. Big fat wedding does not endorse happy married life. One has to remember, marriage is a union between two forgivers. It's about completing each other, not competing with each other. The generation after 1990s has not learned to make the relationship work, they belong to net-age. They want quick-fix solution and after that it is my way or highway.

www.sikhvogue.com

It is important that we must teach our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters that it's not about finding the right spouse, rather, being the right spouse. Every successful marriage requires devotion, forgiveness, tolerance along with love and affection. If both spouses can strike a perfect balance their journey in life become meaningful. Sharing the same goal and working towards achieving it makes the marriage work. It is important for the parents, groom and bride in Punjab to understand that wedding is only a one-time gratification, but marriage is a lifetime investment.

The youth these days get married with false notions and expectations. The girls fail to please their husband and in-laws simultaneously right from the word go. They become impatient and start fighting, grumbling and arguing. They have not learnt to be patient-love and loyalty is truly demonstrated when things are not going right in a relationship. Only those marriages become successful in which the husband and the wife refuse to give up on one another. If we take good care of our responsibilities and duties, our rights will automatically be given to us much before we even demand for it. Simple living and high thinking makes the marriage work. Marriage is not one day affair where you please all your guests and rest of the life live on the laurels of how glamour’s wedding it was.
