Kalpana ChawlaInternational Women’s Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men. 

The idea of an International Women’s Day first arose at the turn of the century, which in the industrialized world was a period of expansion and turbulence, booming population growth and radical ideologies.

International Women’s Day was created to inspire women throughout the world to work towards equality. The day is commemorated at the United Nations and celebrated in nations around the globe.
 
Few causes promoted by the United Nations have generated more intense and widespread support than the campaign to promote and protect the equal rights of women. The Charter of the United Nations, signed in San Francisco in 1945, was the first international agreement to proclaim gender equality as a fundamental human right. Since then, the Organization has helped create a historic legacy of internationally agreed strategies, standards, programmes and goals to advance the status of women worldwide.

DietGiven that each person’s body chemistry and eating habits differ, these are basic guidelines that can lay a good foundation for healthy weight loss. They apply to all brides-to-be.The best way to shed pounds is two-fold: cut back on calories and increase your physical activity. Calories fuel the body and unused calories are stored as fat.

How you lower that calorie count is key. The safe way to cut calories is by eating fewer foods high in fats and sugars - which are loaded in calories - while following a balanced diet drawing from all the major food groups. Besides being healthy, diets rich in variety are easier to stick to and therefore more likely to succeed over time.

According to the Dietetic Association, “all weight management programmes should at the very least include a gradual change to a healthful eating style with increased intake of whole grains, fruits and vegetables.” Eat less, exercise more. Sounds straightforward, doesn’t it?

Happy CoupleFamiliarity breeds contempt – sounds familiar. Overcrowding your partner’s life can actually prove adverse. On the other hand we also know `out of sight is out of mind’.

Space is a double edged sword. Not giving it would mean being emotionally distant and by giving too much would mean cramming down the throat. Both could result in estrangement of relationship. The question then is - how much is too much and when is it too little?

The need for space is like a safety valve in a pressure cooker that releases steam when the pressure is too much in the container. Similarly, the need for space in a relationship is actually a self preservation process. It is the need to put things in perspective and also the need to steam off the pressure when things tend to overwhelm you. Both mean there is an issue which requires resolving.

SPASPA – the name spells pampered luxury and relaxed languor. It is about being soothed and made limp by massage and therapy. So much for a decadent splendor; ever thought about how they originated?

The word SPA is an acronym for Roman phrase- `Senus Per Aquam (healing through water). It was originally meant as a recuperative session for the battle scarred soldiers Who immersed themselves in `hot springs’ and baths called `aquae’ to soak away their aches and pains.

Modern day spas are not very different from the original. They too aim to provide complete body solutions that concentrate on relaxing, restoring and rejuvenating the mind, body and soul.

With increasing stress and mounting tension it is even more imperative to detoxify the body from accumulating pressure. SPAs give you an opportunity to de-stress and relieve your mind from the pressures of everyday life.
