images (95)Why men/boys prefer to wear Shorts (pants)? Any reasons?

I was little bit taken aback when i saw most of the young newly married couples coming to the city for honeymoon and wear such cloths which they could never dare to wear back at their homes? Idea is solely to couple-wedding-honeymoon-shoot-mauritius-india-indian-hotel-mauritius-best-photographer-7.jpgcompare Indian Vs West?

He definitely looks like a casual tourist, wearing casuals as he would say? 20171125_160550-1.jpgbut then he is wearing this short pant just with a presumed perception of being upmarket? belonging to  Nouveau riche group of middle upper class?

There is also a trend among the newly educated lot or high flying group that wearing this type of casual cloths is symbol of status?    

I mean very idea of wearing such types of cloth i don’t like.

#Health Care System vis a vis #Urban #Rural and #Medicine systems #HealthCareSystem

#rural #urban divide in #Health

Swayamkatha

A question always arises in mind whether public health system is better or private? I think such question if arises then it is in itself a proof that how much faith we have in public health system? But more often than not we have no other option but to go to public health system.
This debate is going on for very long. I suppose that this will continue for a long period of time. Question always arises whether government provide better health care facilities or private hospitals. All India estimates (in 2014) of rural areas indicated that private hospitals were preferred. Why? Since more number of cases were hospitalized in private hospitals that in public hospitals. Cases 581 per thousands were hospitalised in private hospital whereas 419 in public hospital. Similarly in urban areas 680 per thousand cases hospitalized in private hospitals and only 320 in public or government hospital.

Just saw a tweet about Rekha ji honoured with lifetime achievement award at a function named #SansuiColorsStardustAwards. it was presented by the Javed Akhtar ji and Shabana Azmi ji. How one can describe Rekha ji and her journey in films. She started as a novice and at very young age. Given the circumstances of family she had to act in films. it is heartening and sad that young teen was not given any option, she had to sacrifice all her freedom for employment.

As we know through media She had a troubled childhood. Now days media and internet has given opportunity to a…

The revival of #dance as #temple #ritual by #SwapnaSundari ji

#SwapnaSundari ji is the only one who has done a great service #seva for our rich heritage of #culture. She revived #Temple #dance #rituals but first and foremost her contribution towards revival of #VilasiniNatyam done by earlier #Kalavantalu #dancers. I admire her great hard work, pain taking research she has done on this dance. It requires lots of patience, knowledge as well?
