Safest Cookware – Three Important Must Have Qualities

With so many toxic cookware in the market, it's usual to choose an unhealthy cookware. Here's a simple guide to help you choose the safest cookware for your family. The safest cookware should have the following three qualities: It should be free from toxins It should keep the nutritional value of food intact It should be environment-friendly The Toxins in Cookware Metals and ceramics are the most commonly used materials for making cookware these days. Ceramics are laden with so many poisonous chemicals, coatings, glazes, and enamels. These chemicals contain metal oxides. Metals have a tendency to react with every chemical substance they come in contact with, especially at high temperature, if not at room temperature. Food is a biochemical entity and when it cooks in metal cookware, the metal ions leach and react with nutrients present in food to form toxins. These contaminants are ingested with food and start accumulating in tissues, organs, and blood over time. This results in health problems and a compromised immune system. The safest cookware would be completely free from any kind of metal or chemical toxins. The only cookware in the market is pure clay cookware. While clay pot cooking is thousands of years old, lack of awareness caused people to switch to metals in past few decades. But as people are becoming more health conscious, they are slowly turning towards pure...

Indian Fashion Industry

Colourful fashion trends of India With the end of the 20th century came the end of all hype which has created a more practical and pragmatic environment and has given a more stable picture of the fashion business. In the 50s, 60s and 70s, the Indian fashion scenario wasn’t exactly colorless. It was exciting, stylish and very graceful. There were no designers, models, star or fashion design labels that the country could show off. The value of a garment was judged by its style and fabric and not by who made it. It was regarded as ever so chic and fashionable to approach any unfamiliar tailor, who could make a garment for a few rupees, providing the perfect fit, finish and style. The high society lady, who wore it, was proud for getting a good bargain and for giving her name to the end result. In 60s, tight ‘kurtas’, ‘churidars’ and high coiffures were a trend among ladies. It was an era full of naughtiness and celebration in arts and music and cinema, manifested by liberation from restriction and acceptance of new types of materials such as plastic film and coated polyester fabric. The 70s witnessed an increase in the export of traditional materials outside the country as well as within. Hence, international fashion arrived in India much before the MTV culture with the bold colors, flower prints and...

Kissing In A Dream Isn’t Always What You Think

We humans show our affection and love for one another, and our passion through a kiss. A kiss can soothe, calm and even magically heal -a child will feel all better after their boo-boo is kissed. In many cultures, but especially in Western cultures, a kiss is often the most intimate physical expression, sometimes considered more intimate even than sexual intercourse. It’s pretty much common knowledge that prostitutes rarely kiss their clients on the mouth. This is because the kiss is recognized as a show of love and tenderness, and the services provided by a working girl (or guy) is little more than a business transaction. In Christian societies, a kiss may also be an act of betrayal, such as the betrayal of Christ by the kiss of Judas. A kiss may also mark the beginning of the end of something, an action that marks the person or project’s demise as in ‘the kiss of death.’ It also represents a goodbye, both temporary and permanent. In fairy tales, kisses take on a much more complex, archetypal meaning. Snow White and Sleeping Beauty were both revived by a kiss. A frog is magically transformed through the power of a kiss. In the fairy tale world the kiss is associated with rebirth; of either the physical, psychological or spiritual. In dreams, kisses may be of the tender, loving, healing kind, the...
