Here is a list of easy to make and tasty vegetable juices that are both nutritious and also act as refreshing summer drinks.
Summer is here and it demands us to be hydrated well. With buttermilk/chaas and tender coconut water being the easiest and sought after summer drinks, there are other sweetened ones including lemonade, mocktails, fresh fruit juices, sherbet, etc. for variation. We can include few more healthy drinks to kick start the day.
These drinks are mostly made of vegetables and are low on both sugars and calories and high on nutrients. Having vegetable juices on an empty stomach as first thing in the morning has umpteen health benefits. They are good for your skin and hair too. Often people are confused about which vegetables to combine for juicing. Here are some options that you can start with.
Especially good for women as the greens intake will take care of the iron, calcium and vitamin needs of the body. Along with green vegetables, apple is also used as one of the ingredients in the recipe for its consistency and sweetness.
Ginger is considered as a wonder ingredient that fights infections in the body. Carrot juice with the combination of ginger and lime juice is very refreshing and makes the juice more interesting. While carrot tastes good in any form, you can have this as a quick fix if you are not very keen on trying carrot in your salads or don’t have enough time.
Beetroot, with other vegetables like tomato and carrot, helps in flushing toxins out of your body. Beetroot juice is also said to have other health benefits like managing blood pressure and is a good tonic for a glowing skin too!
Amla or Indian gooseberry is yet another simple ingredient for a summer drink. It is loaded with vitamin C, which helps in building the immune system. It can be had plain or after mixing with jaggery/honey, or in the form of chaas/buttermilk for a salted version and as a variation to plain buttermilk.
While cucumbers are most commonly used as a summer cooler; lauki or bottle gourd has equally amazing cooling effect on your body during summer. It sounds like an unusual ingredient for a vegetable juice when compared to cucumber or carrot, but can be made interesting by adding few spices and mint leaves.
Banana plant is often called as the plant where none of its produce is wasted, be it raw banana, banana fruit, banana flower, banana leaves, banana stem etc. Every part gets used in some form or the other. Here we concentrate on banana stem, and the recipe gives details on how to make banana stem juice and gives both sweet and salted versions. Banana stem juice is especially useful for weight loss.
Pudina (mint) is an extensively used green in its raw form. It is added in many summer cooler recipes, for garnishing, as part of famous green chutney for chaats and samosas, as a spread for sandwiches, as a traditional pickle, flavoured rice, parathas, etc. to name a few. Now try this in the form of sherbet to savour it more!

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
