CURRENT AFFAIRS

Citizenship Act 2019 - 8 Things You Should Know!

No 1 - The purpose to introduce

a new amendment in the citizenship act is to get protection from all the illegal immigrants. In other words, the Hindu’s, Sikh’s, Christians and Muslims who are from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan need to prove that they are legal citizens by submitting legal documents.

No 2 - There have been several

protests against this change in the Citizenship Act. People are expressing a violent reaction to this rule.

No 3 - 12 years is the basic

eligibility criteria for naturalization, if the Hindu’s, Muslims, Sikhs, Buddhists and Muslims from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh don’t have their documents, they will be given Indian citizenship in 6 years.

No 4 - The problem has arisen

because petitioners think that Muslims are deprived of their rights in the Constitution.

No 5 - Details about the act > This law is applicable to the citizens who were forced to seek shelter in India because of being ill-treated on the ground of religion

> This law is essential to protect such people from illegal migration

> The present citizenship law says : a citizen should have entered India on or before December 31, 2014 Or, the citizen should have been born and lived in India for 11 years at least

No 6 -

Why should this bill be implemented?


The center believes that minority groups have come to India to stay away from the oppression in all the Muslim-majority nations.

No 8 -

No 7 - Loopholes of the act

The opposition thinks that this act intends to declare Muslims as second-class citizens of India and they are being treated different from other religious groups. In a way, this law is going against the law of fundamental rights. Additionally, they even think that the Parliament doesn’t have a right to bring about changes in the Constitution.

This bill does have loopholes, all the religious minorities are not given protection. What are the problems citizens face? In Pakistan, the Ahmedia Muslim sects and Shias are discriminated against. In Burma, Hindus and Rohingya Muslims are oppressed. In Srilanka, Tamil Hindu and Christians encounter problems. Therefore, if the Government thinks that Muslims can go back to Muslim-nations and seek shelter. How about the problems the other religions are facing?

What does the opposition think about this act?

The law isn’t yet operating, the home ministry is yet to decide on the rules. This matter is taken to the Supreme Court as experts need to take a look at it.

SBI’S New Rule On Withdrawal Of Amounts More Than 10,000 In order to reduce the rate of unauthorized transactions, this new rule of the ATM will be introduced. Besides, the State Bank ATM’s have introduced another aspect of security for cash withdrawals. The OTP will be received on the customer’s number that is registered with the bank. This functionality is not developed in National Financial Switch so this is applicable only if the State Bank holder withdraws cash from SBI Bank. NFS manages quite a lot of the domestic interbank transactions.

SBI is going to implement a new rule of introducing OTP based ATM transactions if you want to withdraw more than Rs 10,000. In other words, the withdrawal will be successful only after the OTP is verified.

How does this work? The holder will need to type in the amount he/she wants to withdraw, then the ATM screen will display the OTP option. Once the holder receives the OTP number as an SMS on their phone, they will be able to enter the number and successfully withdraw cash. This rule will be implemented from January 1st and the holder can withdraw money anytime between 8.am and 8.pm.

Ingredients Used For Painting The painters who are engaged in making Pattachitra have a distinctive style of preparing the canvas. What they use is a white cloth that is coated stone powder and the gum of tamarind seeds. There is a reason as to why the canvas is made this way, it is because natural colors can easily get absorbed. For the pigments in the painting, the gum of the Kaitha tree is used.

Depictions of Pattachitra This iconic form of art has exemplary depictions. You will be amazed to see them all!

A Spectacular Tradition Of Pattachitra In Jagannath Puri temple, on Debasnana Purnima, all the deities are given a bath with cold water with a belief that they will get resistance to withstand the bad heat in summer. It is believed that during the period of ‘Ansara’ the deities fall sick for 15 days and they are not seen to the public. As these deities are not present, the painters make paintings of three deities of Balabhadra, Subhadra and Jagannath. These paintings are given the name of Ansar Patti.

Common Features In Depictions This reveals details about the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu.

No 4 - Panchamukhi The name says it all, ‘Panch’ means 5 and here a deity of Lord Ganesh having 5 heads is painted.

INDIAN DIASPORA TRADITION & CULTURE

Kumbh Mela

The Glory of India

WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020


Kumbh mela is a major pilgrimage and festival in Hinduism which is celebrated at four river banks pilgrimage sites in a cycle of approximately 12 years. the four banks are at Allahabad (Ganges-Yamuna-mythical Saraswati rivers confluence), Haridwar (Ganges), Nashik (Godavari), and Ujjain (Shipra). the celebration at each site is based on a distinct set of astrological positions of the Sun, the Moon and Jupiter. it is said that the holiest time occurs at the exact moment when the positions are fully occupied.

JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET


INDIAN DIASPORA TRADITION & CULTURE The devotees believing that bathing in these rivers is a means to atonement, penance which is known as prāyaścitta, for the mistaken that are done in the past and that they get cleansed from all their sins. The Kumbh mela will be attended by devotees from all the sections of Hindu religious life, ranging from holy men known as Sadus, who remain naked all round the year or practice the most severe physical discipline, to hermits, who leave their isolation only for these pilgrimages to even the latest generation using the modern technology. 18

The festival is credited to the 8th century Hindu philosopher Adi Shankara who put in efforts to start major Hindu gatherings for the discussions of philosophy and debates along with Hindu monasteries across the subcontinent India. however, there exists no proper evidence that these mass pilgrimages were being called as “Kumbh Mela” before the 19th century. The myth based on the Puranas around the Kumbh Mela says that the gods and demons fought over the immortal pot (Kumbha) of nectar, the elixir of immortality which has been produced when they jointly churned the milk ocean which lies in the celestial region of the cosmos WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020

and has produced the nectar of immortality. The Mandara Mountain was used as the churning rod and the rope for churning was the king of serpents, Vasuki. The churning has begun with the demons at the head of Vasuki and the demigods at it’s tail.

It is said that, the churning of the milk ocean has produced a deadly poison which was drunk by Lord Shiva and has not been affected. It has also been added that, while Lord Shiva drank the poison, few drops fell from his hands which were licked by


scorpions, snakes and other deadly creatures. It is said that the drops the elixir fell on the four earthly sites of the Kumbh Mela, during the struggle which has been caused as the Mandara Mountain started to sink into the ocean and was noticed by Lord Vishnu for which he has incarnated as a great tortoise and has supported the mountain on its back. After several hurdles and thousands of years, the Kumbh of immortal nectar

was brought by Dhanwantari . The demons have learnt that their part of the agreement has not been kept and chased the demigods for 12 days and 12 nights and it also continued and is believed that the drops of elixir fell at four places during the chase and therefore these places have been acquired with mystical powers and it is also believed that the rivers turn back into the primordial nectar at the climatic moment of each site which gives a chance to the pilgrims to take a bath in the essence of

purity, auspiciousness and immortality. As twelve days of Gods is equivalent to twelve years for humans, the Kumbh Mela is celebrated for every twelve years in each of the four places that were drenched with the elixir. The term Kumbh comes from this mystic pot of elixir, and also Kumbh is the Hindi name for one of the zodiac sign i.e., Aquarius. Aquarius is said to be the sign of the zodiac in which Jupiter resides during the Haridwar Mela.

5 Stories

That Will Make Your Kids Happy Kids are energetic and so is their imagination. The more you spend time telling stories to your kids, their thinking gets better and they develop good listening skills. But, you will need to be creative yourself and stay prepared with a new and interesting story every time your kid wants to hear something nice and feel happy. WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020


You can’t let your child down and you have to buck up with your storytelling skills. Here are interesting, moral oriented and cute stories that will make your kid happy and keep him/ her engaged. Story-telling will strengthen both of your bonds. Read through the stories!

At this moment, Midas was the happiest person in the world. He gets to make everything gold. He jumps with joy and touches so many things that turn into gold. Be it vegetables, fruits, and a few other things. People in the palace are surprised to see so much gold.

Story No 1 - The Midas Touch

Now there is something that happens and Midas gets unhappy. As Midas is happy in the world of gold, he forgets that everything he touches would turn into gold. So, he is not careful and hugs his daughter. Sadly, she turns into gold. Midas is shocked and disheartened as he loves his daughter even more than the gold.

The Midas touch will make your kid aware of how necessary it is to be happy with what he or she has. It is necessary that a kid learns this quality. Once upon a time, there lived a rich king named Midas. He was in love with two things in his life. One, his little daughter and the second thing he loved was his gold. He had gold in abundance. Midas had a beautiful palace, in that palace he had a lovely rose garden. One day a man named Silenus passed by that palace when he was drunk and not in a condition to walk back home. Midas is generous with this man and he doesn’t mind him stopping by at his garden. What do you think is the reason? Well, there is another man named Dionysus who is the God of wine and celebration. So, the drunk man is his friend and Midas has a feeling that this drunk man would wish something good for Midas and his family. For the sake of luck and wishes, he allows Silenus to stay despite his wife and daughter having an objection with it. What happens? Dionysus is extremely happy with Midas upon learning that he was kind to his friend and he asks Midas to make a wish. Midas asks for turning everything that he touches into gold. Dionysus thinks to himself that this is a bad idea and understands that it might not prove good for Midas yet he grants his wish.

Midas runs back to his garden and pleads for Dionysus to grant him a wish of getting his daughter back to life and promises not to be greedy the next time. Dionysus gives him back his daughter and thereafter, Midas learns to be satisfied and happy with everything that he has instead of asking for more.

Learning Never let greed spoil you, always smile to all the gifts of life and work hard for what you want.

Story No 2 - Cows And Tigers This story will teach your kids how important it is to be in a team and not let that togetherness break. When togetherness breaks, other people get to interfere and spoil that unity. In a village there lived four cows, they were neighbors and the best of friends. They were blessed, as they ate and grazed together. They were always there with each other in happiness and sorrow. This bond always kept them safe. As they were always together, no lions or tigers could break their bond or kill them for food. A small problem came their way, two cows fought with each other and they changed their JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET


STORY FOR KIDS

direction from then on. Now comes the tragic part of the story. The lions get to know about this fight and they go to kill the cows who dispersed different directions. Sadly, they successfully kill the cows and just with one problem their unity breaks. 26

Learning Never allow an outsider take advantage of your problems. Always solve problems with your friends, forgive each other and don’t let your unity break.

Story No 3 - Smart Friends This story teaches us that being overconfident can make us lose in life. We must be confident, it is good. Over-confidence is bad for health. There were four close friends who loved each other’s company and they were extremely naughty. They never enjoyed being disciplined at school. Whenever they had a class, they would bunk it and go to a party with each other. They enjoyed themselves to the fullest. Once they had a test and they didn’t want to appear for it. So, the friends made a plan to lie to the dean and escape. They made up WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020

storytelling the dean that they had gone for a wedding and on their way, the tyre of their car got punctured. Therefore, to reach home, they had to push the car all night. They promise the dean to write their exam some other day. The dean agrees to their request and gives them time to study for the test. All the friends work hard, study for the test completely and are ready to take their test. Now, the dean asks all of them to sit in separate classes to appear for the test, the friends agree to this. Now comes an example of real smartness, the professor tests, and checks if the friends spoke the truth or not. The professor is smarter, he doesn’t ask the students questions from their syllabus. He gives them two questions that would test if they really spoke the truth. The questions were, what is your name and which tire of the car burst: he gives them four options, a) Front left b) Front right c) Rear left d) Rear right

Learning So, we must always do what is right and when we are wrong. We should always keep in mind that if we can take 5 smart steps, there is a person who can take 10 smarter steps although we might not be sure of it.


Story No 4 - The Man Who Boasts This is a story of a man who loves boasting about himself and he doesn’t realize that boasting is not necessary for life. A man named John lived by himself. He always enjoyed traveling around the world. One of his neighbors comes by to see him after he returns home from his trip. As he sees his neighbor, he starts to boast about his adventurous experience. He describes everything he did on his trip. He mentions the different people he met and how knowing so many people made him popular. Until here it was okay that he said so many nice things about himself. Further, he started to exaggerate saying no one in the world would have gone a long way as he did. He had a choice to stop at that but he continued saying that there were people who could prove that whatever he spoke was true. As he crossed all his boundaries of exaggeration, another neighbor who overheard the conversation said, “Oh good man, we do not need any witnesses to believe your words. Imagine this place to be Rhodes and leap for us”.

Between Baby And Mother Camel This story is about a mother and baby camel’s conversation. The mother camel confidently answers all the baby’s questions except for one and her little one gets her to realize something important that never crossed the mother camel’s mind ever. It was a sunny day at the zoo. The baby and mother camel got free from their work, they began chatting. The baby camel started to ask her mother a few questions. What were they? This left the mother camel surprised and she didn’t have an answer to give to her little one. This realization was important for the mother camel.

Learning It is good to work hard, focus on improving our strengths, knowledge, and skills. However, in the end, what truly matters is to be in the right place and use those skills appropriately.

After what the other neighbor said, John was ashamed and had nothing more to boast about or even utter the next word for that matter. He kept calm and moved away from the place.

Learning When we do good or enjoy, it is not at all necessary to boast about it. Besides being judged, people would lose faith in us. Thus, it isn’t necessary to over-share all good things with people.

8 Health Trends

That Are Set To Shake Things In 2020 WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020


When it comes round to one’s food habits and health trends, things have been changing dynamically over the course of years. The same is also expected to change things up in the year to come. With the constant dynamic changes happening with every passing year, it isn’t a surprise that when it comes to healthy living, the trends are going to hit the roof in the year of 2020 as well.

JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET


HEALTHY LIVING But, with that comes the prospect of not knowing what they are going to be. To help you out on that front, we are going to sort you out with some of the latest and upcoming trends in the sphere of health and fitness that you could expect in the year of 2020.

NO:1 Growth of plant based diet

30

Veganism has taken the world up by a storm and more and more people are joining the revolution to change their lifestyle and bring about changes that have direct impacts on the environment as well. But, according to the experts, it is believed that the prospect of the vegan diets and the plant based diets are going to drastically gain a lot of momentum in the year to come. The overall consumers across the globe are expected to rise in the coming years, which is why the brands are also gearing up to leave behind their imprints on the same as well.

NO:2 Mocktails to steal the show Healthy eating has become a priority for people and that is justified as well. If you do want a glimpse into the future predictions for 2020, it is believed that the same is going to be taken over by a wide range of mocktails around. People from the millennial generation and the Gen Z generation are drinking less and less and replacing their drinks with a fruity variant of it, hence the rise of the mocktails. More and more brands are expected to introduce more alcohol free drinks to cater to their target audience. There are also expected to be more non alcoholic bars that are going to open during that time.

NO:3 Introduction to nootropics Nootropics, if you don’t know what they are, are the compounds which contribute to WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020


helping improve the overall functioning of the brain function. While people are looking for more and better ways to improve the overall prospect of brain function, the nootropics are expected to escalate that process even further. The reason why nootropics are expected to take a leap in the year to come is because of the kind of impacts it leaves behind on the body, especially when it comes round to the cognition of an individual.

NO:4 Non dairy milk to take the lead Another one of the changes and trends that is going to grace the health sphere is the introduction to more of the non-dairy milk. While we know of the basic ones like soy milk, oat milk and the nut milks, there are expected to be more variants in the year to come. It is still unknown as to which ones yet but the options are most definitely quite a lot. Apart from the milk, other variants like yogurt and the creamers are also going to experience more variants in the year of 2020.

JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET


HEALTHY LIVING

NO:5 Bid adieu to carbs and gluten While we have been heavily reliant on carbs and gluten to keep us satiated, the same is expected to change course in the year to come. More and more people are switching their diets and cutting out the unnecessary carbs and gluten is the main factor responsible in this. There are going to be a number of changes that are expected to come around but nothing is set in stone yet. There have been several alternatives, like switching the wheat flour bread in a pizza for cauliflower bread and so on.

NO:6 CBD is going to take course

32

The cannabis industry is booming and all for the right reasons.

CHANGE IN THE GUIDELINES OF THE OVERSEAS CITIZENS OF INDIA (OCI) CARDS Major problems are being faced by the Overseas Citizens of India cardholders while traveling to the country as an enforcement of a rule has been made in recent times in the OCI card rules regarding which adequate awareness has not been created among the diaspora which has been resulting in cancellation of trips to India by a large number of Indian-Americans. WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020


According to the guidelines that have been made in recent times, the OCI card holders below the age of 21 years and above the age of 50 years need to have their OCI cards renewed after the renewal of their passports. While this rule has been there for long, it is not known to a majority of people in the Indian diaspora due to lack of awareness. It has caused discomfort to a large number of Indian-Americans in recent times as the Indian Government sought to strictly enforce this rule. Several Indian-Americans were asked to return mid-way from places like Dubai and several airlines have refused to board the passengers on a flight to India whose OCI card numbers were not matched with the numbers on their passports. However the government has relaxed the guidelines viewing the difficulties being faced by some Overseas Citizens of India(OCI) card holders while traveling to their home country. The Government has decided to relax the norms till June 30th 2020. It is said that, in case an OCI card holder is below the age of 20 years and has not got their OCI card re-issued on the renewal of their

passport, he or she may travel to the country on the strength of the existing OCI card with the number of the old passport with a condition that the cardholder carries the old passport bearing the number that is on the OCI card along with the new passport. In case an OCI card holder who has attained the age of 50 years and has got their passport renewed but not the OCI card, he or she may travel on the strength of the existing OCI card along with the old as well as the new passports. Though the OCI guidelines have been existing since 2005 stating that the OCI card needs to be re-issued each time a passport is being renewed by the card holder up to the age of 20 years. The guidelines also include that, after completing 50 years of age the OCI card ought to be re-issued once on acquiring new passport. A message has been issued by the government of India’s Foreigners Division of the Home Ministry on December 17 directing the airlines and the related government that the Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) card holders below the age of 20 years or after the age of 50 years of age and who have renewed their passports can continue their travel to India as the the date ha seen extended up to June 30, 2020.

ISRO Chief confirms India’s second mission to Moon - Chandrayaan 3 The ISRO Chief, K Sivan finally confirmed that India is preparing for the launch of Chandrayaan 3, India’s 2nd attempt to travel to moon. Sivan has also confirmed stating that the projects of Chandrayaan 3 and Gangayaan are the two important factors that the agency is going to focus on in the year of 2020.

Sivan also stated saying that ISRO has also acquired the land that would be required for the setting up of the second spacecraft located in Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu. It is also going to be the site for the maiden launch of another space craft, the Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV). The project has been approved by the government already and the allotted amount required for the project has also been sanctioned accordingly. Sivan said that the progress with the Chandrayaan 3 is going quite smoothly. When asked about why the budget of the Chandrayaan 3 is lesser than the Chandrayaan 3, Sivan explained saying that the orbiter from Chandrayaan 2, which is successfully orbiting the Moon around 100 kms away has a life span of around seven years. This is the reason why Chandrayaan 3 is going to be carrying just the rover and the lander.

With a budget of INR 6.5 billion, cheaper than Chandrayaan 2, this is expected to be the cheapest moon mission in the world till date. Chandrayaan 2 did fall short with the expectations in the last minute but ISRO is all set to come back with double the enthusiasm with their next mission. The organization is gearing up for their next launch. Apart from Chandrayaan 3, ISRO is also focusing on preparing for their maiden human spaceflight program, Gangayaan. In one of the New Years press briefing, the ISRO chief

This is the reason why the cost of the mission has come down to around INR 6.5 billion instead of the expected INR 10 billion. The one factor that is the same for both of the projects is the Bahubali rocket. For the launch of the Chandrayaan 3, the scientists have decided that they are yet again going to make use of the India’s ‘fat boy’ geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV). With all the information shared, there is still no specific date allotted to the final launch of the mission. The actual launch date is still being debated and the moment the same is finalized, it will be released to the public. Sivan explained saying that building and developing everything for the Chandrayaan 3 can take somewhere around 1416 months. Sivan also does believe that the launch could happen in 2021. Even for the Gangayaan project, Sivan hasn’t disclosed any kind of final launch date. ISRO is also working on a number of additional projects which they are going to complete by 2020.

How Not To Let

Someone Disturb Your Peace What is said to you doesn’t define you, so why let it get to you?

Judgments! Taunts! Criticism! Opinions! Gossips! All of this passes on negative energy and 66

we who over-estimate ourselves to be perfect are anything but perfect.

WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020


It is a human tendency to get involved in a conversation where we bad-mouth a person or for that matter, we become judgemental after hearing one side of the story. Who doesn’t do it? We all do it and so expecting someone not to do it to us is being unreasonable and trying to escape reality.

JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET


LIFE STYLE Think about this, if someone forms an opinion about you or you are criticized for your actions, will that make a difference to you unless you take it into your head? Let’s get reasonable and admit it that we get affected and sometimes so badly that it hampers our peace of mind and is psycologically disturbing to an extent that we fear to hear a negative comment about ourselves.

68

This fear and habit of taking everything too personally is solely the reason for our disrupted peace and neverending disappointments. It could be not getting a response to a message to someone telling you that you have a bad sense of humor. Do you think it is fair to take everything to heart and forget who you are? No! If you are affected today because someone said something to you or if your peace is always targeted when you hear bad about yourself, you should follow these tips and learn how to stop letting people bother you with their words or actions

No 1 - Discern That You Are Not A Remote Control

WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020

Can you predict or control what you are going to feel the next day? No, right? When you cannot do it for yourself, is it in your control to stop a person from feeling or saying what they want to? Every individual is different. Good and bad is there in all of us. You will find sensible people to the most evilminded. We are in a world and it is quite obvious that you cannot escape how people think about you.

Take Away It would make sense to feel bad if you were an automatic remote control. You could keep a check on what people say and think. In reality, you are not and when the control is not yours the best you can do is to let it go.

No 2 - Time To Make A Few Choices If a friend of yours comes up with her opinion that is not in your favor. It can be disappointing, but, the choice is for you to make of ignoring it or taking it seriously. A situation will arise anytime, the tackling part is based on the choices you make.

Take Away You either talk for yourself or don’t let it affect you. If you think it is worth molding and bringing up a few changes in yourself, then go for it. If you think cutting off with the person gives you peace, just go for it and if you want to be the mature one and ignore it, you can do it with all pleasure.

No 3 - Look Into Yourself Is it always the opposite person who is at a fault? Isn’t it possible that even you are going wrong at somewhere? May be or maybe not. So, when you are upset with another person you need to look into yourself and see if you provoked or were a part of the upsetting situation or not.

Take Away If you are upset that your friend is talking behind your


back, what you can do is, check if you have gone wrong somewhere and if necessary you can ask her/him about it yourself.

No 4 - Don’t Resort To Self-Blame It is good when you introspect and check what didn’t go right from your end. If you don’t find anything, you need to understand that there is nothing directly wrong with you. The person whose words are affecting you is going through a bad day or a rough patch himself/herself. If not this, then it is in the nature of a person to behave that way.

Take Away It is tough to be saintly and understand if a person is speaking ill of you, but, whenever you come across a situation of blaming yourself, just tell yourself that it is not about you, but, it is the opposite person who is struggling. If it is a friend you can offer help and if you don’t know the person then you should choose to ignore what happened.

No 5 - Choose Not To React When you choose not to react or let something get to you, the chances of being disappointed or your peace going for a toss is the least. Having said, it is totally up to you if you don’t want anything to disrupt your peace.

Take Away A few minutes of patience will save you from a lot of drama. When you are the most affected, just keep your guard at that point in time, don’t react and the drama ends there. What you should do then?

Just give yourself a break and let it not haunt your mind

disappointment with a person who wishes good for you. Speaking up might no bring you a definite solution, it makes you feel much better.

No 6 - Speak Your Heart Out To A Well-Wisher

Take Away

A well-wisher will be your reflection who will hear you out and at the same time tell you what is it that went wrong from your end. This way you get a clear picture. Lighten your heart and share the reason for

> Speak without hesitation and don’t


filter anything you feel. Clearly let your emotions out

>

Let them know if they can be of help to you

> Think over the suggestions they give you

No 7 - Learn To Balance Your Emotions It is not practical to outrightly avoid what you feel. If the words are hurtful you are definitely going to feel bad or want to burst out in anger. Don’t stop yourself from feeling your emotions, let it come. Controlling them is the next step. It is left to you to control those emotions or have an unhealthy reaction to the situation. If you have a rapo with the person whom you are disappointed with you can directly talk to that person and this way you get to feel better.

Take Away Allow yourself to go through the anger or pain and explain to yourself to get a grip over your emotions and choose healthy ways to let it out.

Conclusion Letting go has true power and

once you have mastered it you can face any difficulty. In the case of being totally upset by what people say, it is important that you get a hold of your emotions and let the world say what they have to say. You have the power to either stop it from bothering you or take it as an opportunity to improve. So all the people out there, stop seeing negativity the way it is, change your perspective and nothing in the world can disturb your peace. JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET

Understanding An Emotional Connection In A Relationship

72

Every relationship in this world stands on emotional grounds. We are designed in a way that our connection with everyone we are close to is only because of strong emotions. Call those emotions love, care or respect, they bring people together.

WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020


JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET


RELATIONSHIP When two like-minded or unlikeminded people establish a connection, they are sure to have an emotional bond with one another. Give this emotional bond a deeper thought. You must have had it with a friend or you are probably having it with the man or woman you secretly or openly in love with.

74

Had it not been for emotions, none of us would have even valued each other. Now, coming to relationships that involve a boyfriend-girlfriend or a marriage, it is highly essential to have an emotional connection in that relationship, it is that one element that can either take the relationship to heights or put an end to a superficial bond. Emotional connections can either happen in no time or it takes a lifetime. It is all upon the wavelength between the man and the woman. Emotionally connection is one kind of intimacy where the two people know no limitations. Even better, it is even much deeper than physical intimacy is. Relationships lacking an emotional connection can easily break. However, relationships having an emotional connection don’t break despite the worst experiences between a couple. An emotional connection is good WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020

and bad in its own way. When a man and woman are on the same page in an emotional connection, heaven of love is made. Contrarily, when emotional connections are forced or one-sided, it is like a dome of pain.

your partner makes you aware of what it is to forgive, trust, feel comfortable and get deep with your partner.

Coming to its relevance, an emotional connection is the heartbeat of a long-lasting relationship. Only when two people are emotionally connected, they are close and their vulnerable self with each other. How important is this? It makes you aware of how much you can get along with your partner.

What Happens When You Are Not Emotionally Connected?

If emotional closeness is lacking in a relationship, you will never be able to sense the importance of your partner in your life. The happiness in being emotionally connected to

Only when you have an emotional connection with your partner, you can work and grow in that relationship.

If you have a good emotional connection with your partner, well and good. Here are a few points that indicate a lack of emotional bond in a relationship. Take a look!

NO:1 You Feel

An Unexplainable Distance When a factor in your relationship is missing, you will be quick at sensing it.


Even when the two of you feel emotionally connected to each other, it is easily understandable. Lack of emotional intimacy will make you feel all alone even when your partner is around. You will always feel far away and insecure of him/her. You won’t be able to specify the reason and yet feel it really strong. This can be a sign that you

have to work on building emotional intimacy between the two of you.

NO:2

Feelings Are Not Spoken About When will you be open enough to share what you feel? Only when your partner and you have established a bond and closeness, right?

When the emotional connection between the two of you is weak, you will not be able to talk about what is bothering you. It will be there in your heart and maybe your partner’s heart too. These accumulated thoughts and discomfort can cause further problems and arguments between the two of you.

JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET


RELATIONSHIP

NO:3 Expressing Love

Is One-Sided When two people are equally connected to each other, both of them will quarrel the sweet way to talk their hearts out. However, when that emotional connection isn’t strong, only one partner who is too much into the other will be found talking his/her heart out or expressing love.

NO:4 Charm In The

Relationship Is Missing

76

Charm in a relationship is essential for the two people to go a long way. What does it mean? Is it sex? or is it about physical attraction? Well, it is much more. Charm in the relationship talks of feeling the butterflies in the stomach even if its been years that the two of you have been dating or married. When the emotional closeness between the two of you starts to fade away, the beautiful charm between the two of you is sort of disrupted.

NO:5

Heartfully Clinging Doesn’t Happen When you are emotionally connected to your partner, you will want to cling to that person WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020

in a special way. When two people are not emotionally connected to each other, they only cling when they have to get physically intimate. Signs such as holding hands, leaning on each other’s shoulder and cuddling each other are missing. These are little things and you must be wondering if it even matters. To your surprise, it matters

more than anything. While a few couples are not touchy in crowd, they would at least personally have it with each other.

NO:6

You Behave Like ‘Known Strangers’ With Each Other Isn’t it obvious that you will end


up speaking your heart out with the person you are close to? You will for sure. When couples are emotionally connected, they share interests, problems and never get tired of bearing each other’s sense and nonsense. On the contrary, where there is no emotional connection between the couple, all they have between them is silence and they are never interested to hear or speak of what’s happening in their life with excitement.

NO:5

Your Partner Doesn’t Affect You Think of this, if a person you are not close to passes a comment on you, would it matter as much as it would if the one you are emotionally bonded with does? That’s exactly how it is when couples are emotionally connected to each other. Every action and reaction matters. You can say that your partner is not emotionally connected to you when your actions don’t bother him/her. For instance, they don’t miss you when you are not around and even if you are around their approach towards you is neutral.

Benefits Of Having A Deep Emotional Connection In Your Relationship

Here are the sweet benefits of having an awesome emotional connection in your relationship. Take a look!

No 1 - Intimacy is on fire When you are physically and mentally in love with a person. The world is like heaven. You tend to have an awesome sex life.

78

It was a terrific and fierce in those days. Though his army was of less number of soldiers, they fought with spirit of wining against Mughals.

Tik Tok Security At Stake Hackers Get An Access To User Accounts

One of the famous apps on social media in today’s time since last year is Tik Tok. This app has kept several users entertained. Boys and girls are happy exploring their interest on this app. So far it has been going well and now there is a potent threat to this app, hackers are able to easily access user’s tik tok account. This is in no way a good sign. As this Chinese owned company continues to grow, the cybersecurity research check firm has found multiple vulnerabilities within this video-sharing app.

WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020

During the audit, the check point research says that they could successfully spoof text users. This means, when a user clicked the fake link, the hacker could easily access the user’s account. This is definitely a bad sign. This would have enabled

hackers to change several settings on a user’s account like adding, deleting and altering other settings. In addition to this, the audit researchers say, through cross-siting, Tik Tok’s


infrastructure must have made a tik tok account accessible for the hackers to access a user’s account. One of the biggest security concerns is that links are sent through SMS and this is a wellthought trick of cybercriminals to access a user’s phone. One such similar event had taken place in the UK in 2014. Concertgoers received spoofed messages as their mother from the concert promoter and UK’s Information Commissioner charged him a fine of more than $1,00,000. Check Point made Tik Tok’s parent company aware of this and ever since the problem was fixed. One of the lead researchers from Check Point

named Oded Vanunu believes that since this app has close to 1.5 billion global users in two and a half years after it has been launched outside China, this is a great opportunity for all the hackers to steal and transfer private information from user’s. More than 300 million users are from India and Check point noted that there is a functionality that lets users send an SMS to themselves to download the application. As of now, there isn’t any information on the number of users being hacked, however, this has put all the tik tok user’s at a risk. The information on the bugs was first sent to all the tik tok teams.

What can hackers do? User’s content can be manipulated An upload of unauthorized videos can happen Private videos can be made public Personal information can be extracted. For example, email ID of the user Videos can easily be deleted Steps to minimize this risk Here are a few tips that can help you minimize the risk. Take a look! Tip 1 - If you are a tik tok user, don’t take it for granted that your account might not be compromised. Take it seriously, log in and log out from your account. Tip 2 - It is essential to keep updating the tik tok app whenever you get a notification. Tik tok is been monitored by one of the secretive technology companies in the world and this security is even stronger when compared to Facebook or Twitter.

Failing to follow Vastu tips can destroy all the elements of wellness and affect the family members staying in that house.

WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020

Here are a few rules you need to follow!

Rule No 1 Area of Construction According to Vastu, it is good to consider the North and East direction for construction. It is not good to construct the living room either in the South or South East.

Why? Although the south energy in Vastu indicates fire and it has its own benefits, it is not applicable, to begin with. For good peace and prosperity, it is always good to begin in the North direction.


Rule No 2 - Significance Of North Direction North or North-East direction is the chosen spot because it is an auspicious space for praying. It is known to spread peace and prosperity at home. This is why it is the best spot for your living room.

Rule No 3 Living Area Floor In the North or North-East direction of your living room, the flooring should have a slope. This turns out to be quite beneficial with regard to the energy levels in your house.

Rule No 4 - Ceiling The ceiling in your living room should slope towards the East or North. It is better to avoid the West or South Direction.

If your social life is big and you have people coming to your house very often, then SouthWest is the best direction for your living room. The south-west direction is good for bringing in luck and prosperity as well.

Rule No 7 - What To Know About The West And South Direction While considering the west and south direction in your living room you can keep heavy items or furniture in that corner. It is the best spot.

Rule No 8 - Door In The Living Area You should consider North or East direction while putting up a door or having a designated entrance into your living room. This direction attracts success vibrations and helps the family members do well in their area of study or career. This is a success-driven direction.

Rule No 5 - What To Avoid If You Have A Big Social Life Whenever there are guests at home, they will be seated in the living room. Interestingly, you can follow a Vastu tip based on your social life. If you are someone who doesn’t have a big social life with late-night parties then your hall can be in the North-West direction. However, if you stay up late and your guests stay back at your place, you should avoid having your living room in the North-West direction given the fact that the wind’s direction will come into your house and this can make your guests will uncomfortable to stay at your home for long.

Rule No 6 - What To Keep In Mind If You Have A Big Social Life JANUARY 2020 | WWW.WISHESH.NET


INDIAN VAASTU CORNER

Rule No 9 - Right Direction For Development In All Spheres Of Life If the family members want to develop in all aspects of life, according to Vastu, the right direction for a good entrance in the living room is the North-West direction. Additionally, it is not good to consider the South in the right direction for your living room’s entrance.

Rule No 10 - What Do The Directions Signify For wealth and progress, you should consider North or North-East directions as the entrance for your living room. 104

To get fruits for all your hard work and attain success, the South, South-West and North-East directions have their significance in the living room.

Rule No 11 - Rule For Head Of The Family If the head of the family wants to avoid domination from another family member or guest and have his/her own say, it will do good if the person faces the North or East direction while being seated in the living room.

Rule No 12 - Tip To Keep Away From Distractions One of the most distracting aspects of a house is the TV and Vastu has a knack of getting that habit in control. According to Vastu, the family members don’t watch too WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020

much television if it is strictly kept in the SouthEast corner of the house.

Rule No 13 - Other Rules In The Living Room You should completely avoid having the telephone in the South-West or northwest direction of the living room. It would do well if you avoid keeping an air conditioner or cooler in the South-East direction of the house. In this case, you can consider East or West directions to install the AC or place your cooler. The North-East direction in your living room is perfect for hanging paintings and portraits. Colors on the wall also affect the energies in our house. Thus, if you want positive energy in the house, see to it that the walls have colors like


yellow, light green or light blue. Strictly avoid colors such as red and black on your walls. While choosing furniture for your living room you should keep two things in mind about the shape of the furniture. You must strictly avoid anything that’s round or oval and stick to furniture that’s square or rectangular in shape. If you are planning on having a staircase in the living room then you can choose any of the south directions in the living room. If the curtains are set up in the North-East Direction of your living room you should stick to having light curtains in this direction. If the curtains are set up in the South-West direction of your living room, you can have heavy curtains in this direction. It is a good practice if you can maintain

cleanliness in the entire living room. However, you should focus on keeping the North-East corner of your living room clean. Additionally, it will do you good if you keep it empty as well. If you like having plants at home then choose the North-East corner and never keep artificial plants or a cactus in this corner. This corner is just meant for real plants. If you want to keep a fountain in your house then the North Direction is the best. If you want to keep an aquarium in your house then the North, North-east or East directions are the best. If you want to hang a chandelier in your living room, consider the South or West direction. Strictly keep away from hanging it in the center of your living room.

The eighth son was Krishna and the day he was born it had rained heavily and his father Vasudev carries him in a basket and leaves him to Yashoda without her knowledge and picks up Yashoda’s daughter to take her along. Kanas sees that the baby is a girl and throws her on a stone. This baby girl transforms into a woman named Yogmaya and she warns Kanas that Krishna will kill him. Kanas attempts to kill Krishna but Krishna defeats him someday when he grows up by killing him.

How Is It Celebrated? Krishna Janmashtami is always on Ashtami day as per the Hindu calendar. This festival is known as Gokulashtami and Krishnastami. For the most part, it is celebrated in August or September. Usually, this eve is celebrated with Kirtan, Bhagavad Gita reading, decorating the temple and dressing up Krishna deities.

The film, a prequel in part, traces Chulbul Pandey’s journey from a young man named Dhaakad to police officer Chulbul Pandey, and his fight with the demons of his past.

Analysis : This is the third instalment of the 'Dabangg' franchise, and the audience is well-acquainted with the larger-than-life, lovable cop and his world. Chulbul (Salman) spends his average day romancing his wife Rajjo (Sonakshi), troubling his brother Makkhi (Arbaaz) and fighting and reforming goons.

Cut to, Chulbul Pandey’s beginnings, a huge chunk of the first part of the film is about his younger days, his love interest – the beautiful and naive Khushi (Saiee) – and the circumstances that urged him to turn over a new leaf and become Robinhood Panday. There are ample clapworthy and seeti-maar moments in Prabhudeva’s 'Dabangg 3' for Salman Khan fans to lap up. Yes, he takes off his shirt, flaunts his well-toned, perfectly-greased body and beats up the goons to pulp.

Final Word: Overall, the film has all the ingredients required for a massy masala entertainer — good action, music, drama and, of course, Salman packing all of this in one story. The portions where the actor throws in comedy while doing hardcore action scenes are nicely done.

The entertainment will not appeal to the audience and sounds forceful. The songs are ok on screen. Once again, it is Venky who carries the film on his shoulders. Chaitanya has nothing much to emote and he does well in Kashmir episodes.

On a business work, Arjun moves to Uttar Pradesh where he comes to know about an insult that his mother faces in the past. Once he arrives in Uttar Pradesh, people start calling him Dharma and admires him. The rest of Ruler is all about the relation between Arjun Prasad and Dharma. Watch the film to know about the backstory of Ruler.

Analysis : Ruler has an interesting plot and the first half of the film sounds pretty impressive. Laced with all the commercial elements, Balakrishna's stylish looks and his presentation are the major highlights.

WWW.WISHESH.NET | JANUARY 2020


The songs have been shot well and the performances of the lead actors carry the film further. The interval episodes are quite powerful and elevate the film well. On the whole, the first half of Ruler happens to be decent and it keeps good expectations on the second half. The second half of Ruler fails to make the needed impact. Balakrishna looks rough as Dharma which will not appeal to the audience. The entire second half looks loud and is filled with unwanted mass elements. The songs have been canned well though they do not sound good.

Final Word: Ruler looks like a half baked mass entertainer with an overdose of action and bad narration. Balakrishna shines well in his assignments.

3/5

Analysis : The best part of the movie is the thrilling and intriguing plot that leaves the audience on the edge of their seats. The first half of the movie has a well scripted tale with good narration that doesn’t let monotony set in. The actors have managed to showcase their best with their transitions and the expressions. The direction is also amazing, ensuring that the cut between the scenes are managed effectively. The film, post intermission, progressed well until it was point of the climax or a scene before that. That’s where the disappointment set in. The role of the villain in the movie has been a disappointment all along and even the audience has expressed the same.

Final Word: Aside everything, the nerve chilling shots and the amazing background score of the movie does manage to bind everything together without any complaints whatsoever. It is an mediocre movie, a one time watch, if you must.
