Grooms know this; Everyone is watching the bride but the bride only sees you.

And so, here are a few tips for all the grooms this season.

Make your first and the best impression with a Classic Haircut.

Straight edge razor are always recommended for a clean shave.

Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale so let’s be prepared.

A lot of people pluck their eyebrows for the first time just before the big day and that’s the biggest mistake. Do not experiment anything new on your big day.

Don’t forget your hands.

When the couple exchange their wedding rings, everyone’s eyes focus on the hands of the couple. Almost all the photographers all round the world takes ring pictures of the bride and the groom holding hands. So neat and clean fingernails are a must.

Visit your hair stylist atleast twice a month before your wedding day to get adjusted to your new haircut.

Show off your smile with a sparkling teeth.

A few months before the wedding consult your dentist. Schedule an appointment for a couple of weeks before for teeth cleaning and whitening.

Keep breath mints in your pocket for last minute freshening if needed.

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

Stay tuned for another exciting topic in our next edition until then love yourself, spread happiness and take good care of yourself.

Without going into the merits or demerits of the events in Kashmir, I feel that India has the biggest opportunity here of showing the world, a healing! What was used here, was a heavy hand and such heavy hands are used quite often in times of war and when other means have failed.

I will try to draw parallels from two such occasions.

When the American Civil war took place late in the nineteenth century, it was bitter fighting between the forces of the Union and the Confederates. From facts I have garnered it was not an easy decision for Abraham Lincoln to go to war with his own countrymen, but for the sake of truth, which the American Constitution proclaimed, that all men are equal, even slaves, Lincoln did, and after bitter battles, finally won.

But did the Union later treat the Confederate states as scum? Did they after the battle, make them hate their own motherland which had fought with them, and even made them lose husbands and fathers? No after the war, came a time of healing. A healing so huge, so big, and of such magnitude that today the people of those same southern states do not think of themselves as any different from those of the rest of the US.

Immediately after the war, came a healing.

Two bombs were thrown on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to put an end to World War II but after that occupation forces, including some from India, with an uncle of mine being part of it, rebuilt Japan under the leadership of Gen MacArthur!

Again, a time of healing.

No rancor exists today or hatred towards the allies for defeating them!

India has got such an opportunity today. We did not use force but the powers of Parliament, and with that Kashmir is now wholly and totally a part of our country. Here’s our chance to show our brothers and sisters there that we have come to heal. Here’s our chance to show the world that we are by nature a firm but gentle people, that we can be stern yet compassionate.

It won’t be easy, and many an occasion will arise when retaliation from disgruntled elements may provoke us to use force to quell, to use a heavy hand to overpower, but if we can restrain ourselves, here’s an appropriate occasion to teach a rift widening world, the power of a healing touch!

Here at last, through a Kashmir healing, is a window to show the world, what our ancient Indian culture of peace can bring about, better than swords and guns and brute force can ever do!

This is an opportunity to heal..!

Here are a few tips to look the best on your wedding day:

Start your parlour /beauty treatment atleast 6 months before your wedding to get that perfection and then continue with the home remedies to keep the glow maintained.

Every bride is the star of her wedding.

Start going for regular facial and hair spa atleast 6 months before the wedding date.

Ask for a patch test (if required).

To keep your hands and feet soft, apply olive oil on them before going to sleep at night. This helps you to get rid of the dry skin.

Go for manicure and pedicure atleast once a month.


Avoid crash diet or hectic gym schedule just before your wedding this can make you look tired and dull. Start your workout or diet atleast 4 months before your wedding to achieve your weight loss target.

Proper sleep is a Must to do thing, because lack of sleep can give you dark circles and am sure you don’t want one.
