Raksha Bandhan is one of the important festivals, when brothers and sisters celebrate the loving bond between them. Like all festive occasions, girls love to dress up and look their best. It’s a good idea to start following a few beauty tips a few days before, to add a glow to the skin. In the hot and humid season, the skin needs toning and refreshing. Here are some home remedies:

Watermelon juice is a good skin toner and relieves dryness too. It cools, refreshes and softens the skin. Apply on the face and wash off with plain water after 20 minutes.

Fruit Mask for all Skin Types: Fruits like banana, apple, papaya, orange can be mixed together and applied on the face. Keep it on for 20 to 30 minutes. Then wash off with water. It cools the skin, cleanses dead cells and removes tan.

Cooling Mask: Mix cucumber juice with two teaspoons powdered milk and one egg white into a smooth paste. Apply on face and neck and rinse off with water after half an hour.

Mask for Oily Skin: Mix one tablespoon Multani Mitti with rose water into a paste and apply on the face. Wash off when dry.

After applying face mask, take two of the cotton wool pads soaked in rose water and use them as eye pads. Squeeze out the rose water and then apply on closed lids. Lie down and relax, while you have the mask and eye pads on. Used tea bags can also do the trick. Soak them in a little warm water, squeeze out the water and apply on the eyes like eye pads.

To soften rough, bushy or frizzy hair, mix some water with creamy hair conditioner and put it in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the hair. Then comb the hair, so that it spreads through the hair.

Raksha Bandhan is usually celebrated during the day. Daytime make-up has to be light and carefully done. If you have a clear skin, leave out foundation. After cleansing, apply a sunscreen with a built-in moisturizer. Then apply powder.

Translucent powder, like a baby powder, is good. For oily skin, apply astringent lotion, instead of moisturizer. Then, apply compact powder. Pay attention to the oily areas of the face, like nose, forehead and chin. Press the powder all over the face and neck, with a slightly damp sponge. This helps it to set and last longer. If you wish to apply blusher, use less and blend well. Blush-on should be like a gradual flush on the face.

For eye make-up stick to eye pencils during the day. Or line your eyelids with brown or gray eye shadow. This gives a softer effect. Then, apply only one coat of mascara, which helps to make the eyes look darker and brighter, but prevents the “heavily made-up” look.

For lipstick, avoid very dark colours, like dark maroon. Go for light pastel colours, pink, mauve, light browns, copper or bronze. The colours should not be too intense. Or, use only lip gloss. First outline the lips with a lip pencil, same shade as your lipstick. Fill in colour with a lipstick brush. Obviously outlined lips are out of fashion.

For a special occasion like Raksha Bandhan, you can try out a new hairstyle, like putting up your hair with fancy hair clips or ribbons. Wearing flowers in the hair can be quite alluring.

Long hair is very much the trend, with cascading waves or curly and bouncy hair. Go for the softer look, with curls or natural waves, in the lower half of the hair.

The classic ponytail is also dictating trends. It suits most face shapes, because one can wear a pony tail high or low, with a fringe or without, or with wisps or curls falling down, with that carefully-careless look. A ponytail is actually an easy hair do. With ribbons, or other hair accessories, it can even provide a touch of glamour.

One can have a ponytail for a formal or an informal look. For a long face, wear a low pony tail and have a light long fringe falling straight down. For an oval face, wear it with a side-swept fringe. For a square jawed face, have wisps of long curls falling down on either side of the face, just beyond jaw level. It will suit a round face too. Or you can put the hair up with the help of hair clips.

"A smart city is one having provision of basic infrastructure"

New Delhi : The central government on Thursday announced 98 cities and towns for development as smart cities based on evaluation of financial and institutional capacities and past track record of urban local bodies.

According to Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, a smart city “is one having provision of basic infrastructure to give a decent quality of life to its citizens, a clean and sustainable environment and application of smart solutions, keeping the citizens at the centre”.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who launched the Smart Cities Mission in June, had defined a smart city as “one which is one or two steps ahead of the aspirations of people”.

The government had announced an ambitious plan to develop 100 smart cities following a promise made by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in its election manifesto.

The mission intends to promote adoption of smart solutions for efficient use of available assets, resources and infrastructure to enhance the quality of urban life and provide a clean environment.

Under the smart cities initiative, the focus will be on core infrastructure services like adequate and clean water supply, sanitation and solid waste management, efficient urban mobility and public transportation, affordable housing for the poor, power supply, robust information technology, connectivity, governance, especially e-governance and citizen participation, safety and security of citizens, health and education and sustainable urban environment.

As part of the Smart Cities Mission, each selected city would get central assistance of Rs.100 crore per year for five years. The smart city mission involves “an area based approach” and is meant to set examples that can be replicated within and outside the smart city.

The 98 cities and towns announced on Thursday were nominated by their respective states and union territories at the end of the first stage of the ‘City Challenge’ competition in which all the urban local bodies in states and union territories were evaluated. Two nominations are pending.

The cities were selected based on “city challenge competition” with grading done on the basis of criteria that included their revenues, expenditure, availability of infrastructure relating to transport, drinking water and solid waste management.

The selected cities will have to prepare city-level “smart city plans” and these will be evaluated in the second stage of competition based on a broad set of criteria to pick up the top scoring 20 cities for financing during this financial year.

Other cities will be asked to improve upon the identified deficiencies before participating in the next two rounds of competition. Cities to be selected in the second stage of competition would be provided with central assistance of Rs.200 crore in the first year followed by Rs.100 crore each year during the next three years.

Smart city action plans will be implemented by special purpose vehicles to be created for each city.The union cabinet had approved an outlay of Rs 48,000 crore for the Smart Cities Mission.

Sanjay Dutt gets fresh parole for daughter’s surgery

Published By: Rajasthan News1 on: Wednesday, August 26, 2015 at: 11:38 PM

Sanjay Dutt, sanjay dutt gets parole, sanjay dutt in jail, Sanju Baba, Bollywood, Yerawada Central Jail
Pune : The Sanju-Baba of the Bollywoos actor Sanjay Dutt, who is currently serving a five-year term at Pune’s Yerawada Central Jail, has been granted a 30-day parole for tending to his daughter, who is to undergo nose surgery, official sources said here on Wednesday.

He had applied for the parole in June citing his daughter’s medical condition, which has been granted two days ago by the Pune Divisional Commissioner.

After completing various formalities, including posting a surety bond, Dutt is likely to walk out of jail either later on Wednesday or Thursday and return to his Bandra home. The 30-day parole is extendable by another 60 days.

Since he reported to the Yerawada Central Jail in May 2013, the “Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.” actor, who was convicted for illegal possession of arms in the March 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, has been out on parole for around four months.

Prior to this, in October 2013, Dutt had been released on medical furlough for 28 days, followed by another 28 days in December 2013 to tend to his ailing wife Manyata, 14 days parole in December 2014 and another 60 days from January 2014.

This had sparked off protests among various sections with allegations of preferential treatment meted out to him owing to his star status.

The “Khalnayak” star, who has given hits like “Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.”, “Vaastav: The Reality” and “Saajan”, is currently serving the remaining 42 months of his five-year jail term.
