Check out the ultimate guide to 16 return-to-work programs in India for women
The festive season is in full swing in India and it’s the time for merriment, late night parties and good food. But most importantly, we also need to figure out how to stay healthy during these festivals!
Here, I will be talking about how we can keep our health in focus, whether it’s in the short term (such as during the festive season) or in the long term (such as preparing for critical illnesses which might affect us in the future).
We should be enjoying ourselves during the festivals but also be mindful of our health. This is the time of the year when we overindulge in rich and oily food, late night outings and gorge on delicacies and desserts. The endless parties with the lavish spreads are tempting even for the most health conscious and disciplined people. Our schedules go haywire and sleep deprivation is common. Festivals are only an example of how living in the moment without thinking about the future is not ideal from a health perspective. One should always plan for the future keeping all kinds of contingencies in mind. I believe healthcare is a continuous process. So, on a regular basis, I break my fitness goals into smaller, manageable objectives which makes it easier for me to achieve them. It also makes me happier and gives me more time to party and occasionally overindulge, especially during the festive season.
Here are a few things that I do to stay healthy while also planning for the future:
ICICI Pru iProtect Smart is a holistic term plan that is flexible and comprehensive. The plan provides a cover against 34 critical illnesses including heart attack, chronic liver disease, kidney failure, brain surgery, major head trauma and Alzheimer’s disease. With longer life spans today, the chances of any of us falling prey to a critical illness cannot be ruled out, and a term plan is therefore a must for every family. Also, the plan includes a life cover which protects my family, in case of my absence.
This festive season, let’s remember that it takes only a moment to change the course of our lives; a moment is all we have, a moment, now and here. As we cherish this moment and enjoy the celebrations, let’s secure our future and live a stress-free life.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
