Strange as it may sound

Is liberation attained only through sainthood?
How can young minds and energetic souls renounce the world and embark on spiritual journey? Their voices still have that morning freshness and aggressive killer instinct. Yet they chose to ignore all this and begin a journey which will be so different from the world they have been living. These are the sentiments and thoughts that are running in my mind while I finishing writing a story on 75 youths taking the path of sainthood in a religious ceremony on Saturday.
I spoke to four youngsters who were doing so well for themselves, leading successful careers and hobnobbing with the best brains in their respective industry. But I guess since these privileged youngsters got all the success and luxury too soon or too easily, that they now want to see life with a different perspective and surrounding. Expensive cars, staying and dinning in five star hotels and splurging on branded stuff are something that lures a lot of youth to work hard or smart. But these youths have somehow lost interest in all of them.
These group of youngsters who are set to live as saint had everything in their life that others aspire to have. Yet it took them just a year to kick all these comfort and dedicate their life to god and religious activities.
“Most of us feel that bhajan sabha and satsang should be attended when one has grown old. But I think as youngsters we should be attending them so that we don’t get carried away in materialistic pleasure,” is what a mere 23-year old fresh graduate from London College of Fashion tells you when you ask him his reasons for taking on sainthood.
Surprisingly this budding fashion designer was set to start his design studio in London but somewhere he just cancelled all these plans. Instead he had made up his mind to adorn saintly robes and lead a detached life. “Everything in life is temporary. It is important to live for a meaningful cause,” shared this would-have been fashion designer.
I agree materialistic pleasure is temporary and only increases ones greed to have more. But does one find contentment in renouncement? I mean how can one just get up from bed one morning and erase memories of ones family, friends and relatives? A mother who till now was used to scolding and cajoling her son will no longer get to acknowledge in public that - ‘The saint standing on the stage is my son’.
How easy can it be for someone to just chuck laptops, mobile phones and ambitions all of sudden? I know answers to these questions are not easy to find.
This 26-year old researcher who could have done wonders with his research in bio-informatics has now decided to serve god. “I did not want to be part of the rat race instead I wanted to liberate my soul from all sorts of comfort and attachment. The process of renouncing the world was running in the back of my mind even while I continued my research at Cambridge,” said this researcher.
What strikes me is that these youngsters have no regrets and are proud of their decision to take ‘diksha’. Even their families are rejoicing over their children’s decision. Relatives too flock at their homes to see their son who would soon be a saint.
Life they say is strange but it cannot get stranger than this. Why is it that these Gurus preach renouncement and not ask their followers to lead simple life without shunning ones responsibility? Can’t these religious gurus channelise the minds of talented youngsters so that world can progress and mankind can prosper? A researcher, a fashion designer and engineer can do wonders as professionals but what use would they be to the nation as saint draped in orange robes with large red tikka. Will these young saints really lead a liberated life? I find it tough to answer…

Get creative with curls

Are you one of those lucky women who are blessed with cascading curls? There is something really sexy about having curly hairs. They go well with just about any dress and a fitting hairdo for any event. Keep them short or grow them long, one can be really creative with curls.

For those who don’t have natural curly tresses, they spend hours in the saloon to get one and end up burning a hole in their pockets. Curls somehow add volume to the mane and make a woman look good.
In fact it’s fun to play around with curls and get a nice swanky haircut. One does not have to look for a reason or inspiration to chop or redo the hair. There so many celebrities wearing their curls with pride and many of them love to experiment with them. Getting a refreshing smart cut can go a long way in changing the way you look.

Here are some haircuts that one can opt for this season:

Layered curls
For straight hairs layered cut goes well but after first wash, the style sort of disappears. With curls there is nothing to worry, asks the stylist to give layers, starting from the top and narrowing it as you move down. With small layers around the face, one can get a fuller look and leaner towards the end. This goes well for evening gowns and night events where one has to keep the dazzle quotient high.

Shoulder-length Lob
So you want to shorten the hair and opt for a smarter look, then try a cut that is just shoulder length. Straighten hair on the top and curls in the end. Wear this style with an off-shoulder gown, halter tops and casual wear. One can definitely look sexier and bolder with this medium hair cut and set many heart flutter.

Bob cut with layers
It’s like giving the usual bob-cut a nice twist. Keep short and less maintained mane with this classic cut that makes one look elegant and chic. Ask the hairdresser to start cutting them short with layers around the jaw line. This will distribute the curls and balance the weight evenly. Curls with levels will turn one into this smart, confident and vivacious babe.

Long, loose and wavy curls
If you have long curly hair and do not wish to chop them off short, go for a cut that fine tunes the end and adds a little bounce to create waves. Let the curl play with your shoulder and back with occasionally touching your face. This is like a sure shot way to divert all the attention towards you.

Tips before getting a hair cut

·         First hydrate you hair well before heading to the parlour
·         For curls its best to ask hair stylist to cut them when fully dry
·         Ask them to use standard kit

·         Discuss the cut and style before they start using the scissors.

Cook up blog that hooks and books readers

The success of a blog depends on the comments it gets. This is one of the yardsticks which shows either the blog clicked or was missed. It is no mean job to pen a riveting piece that gets readers talking and commenting. For a blogger it’s the feedback that matters once the blog is floated in the online space. So is there a code that can be cracked to attract readers and get piles of replies?

Yes there are ways to trick net savvy citizens and divert the traffic towards your blogs. There are means to lure readers who hog on blogs that are interesting as well as offer something new. All that matters is how words have been juggled, rearranged and served to delight the information hungry crowd in the virtual space.

Just like on the roads, there is a hell lot of traffic in the world of web and to make inroads is a challenging endeavour. There is chaos, clutter and too much noise out there and to be heard one has to shout loud. No wonder bloggers end up stirring some or other controversy. But there are more tricks under the hat other than penning a controversial blog.

Here are some tactics and tricks that will give a magnetic power:
Start to startle
Just catch the reader off guard with some startling detail, fact, figure or news that will compel them to take notice of the blog. Look for such information on the web or books and start the blog with it. The first few lines have to be strong with content that sets the mood to read till tail end. The reader will not just scan the write-up but gobble up words to quench the thirst.

Add a little spice
A great start demands a good flow too. If you want to attract readers and convince them to leave a comment, give them something to get moved or stirred up. Like a dance performance, let the piece rise to a level that will make reader not just read but also get them curious, argumentative or happy.

Don’t bombard
The writing bug is tough to get over but don’t bombard readers with stuff regularly. Let the first blog settle down, keep the commenting going on and encourage people to talk more about it by reverting to their feedback. Make them wait for the next write-up.

Let out the opinion
Blogs have gained popularity since one can share truckload of details but also assert ones opinion on varied subjects and issues being discussed world over. As a blogger you have right to talk tough and speak out, there is no one to stop. Don’t be a lame duck going all goody-goody; your viewpoint might just attract dozens to talk about it.

Ask for feedback
There is no harm in asking for honest feedback from the readers. You can end the piece with a question and this might just set the stage for commenting spree.
