Our closest relationships often test us the most. There is no denying that the emotion of love complicates our lives by bringing along with it difficult sentiments such as jealousy, desire, possessiveness, unreasonable expectations, and worst of all, a tendency to take the other person for granted. It is no wonder then that extenuating circumstances such as being stuck indoors with our closest ones throughout the pandemic have wreaked havoc on relationships. However, if one sets the intention to make the relationship work, it is possible to turn over a new leaf.
Tiesta Duggal — Life Coach, Energy Healer and Founder of Navyam, The Mind and Soul Abode — has healed several fraught relationships. Over the last year and a half particularly, she has been consulted by numerous clients fighting with their close ones. “I was always intrigued by the process of healing and felt there must be something that we could do in our lives that would get rid of all the stress and fear we carry with us. In 2016, I decided to pursue healing professionally. I was keen to research and find out more about the world of healing, and how it is connected to the science of quantum physics. Since then each day has been a new journey of exploring and enjoying the work that I do thoroughly,” shares Duggal candidly.
With a dedicated healing practice that includes modalities such as energy healing, Reiki, access bars, hypnotherapy, angel card reading, angel healing therapy, life coaching and body psychotherapy — she has a wide range to offer her clients, who readily return time and again.
When asked specifically about the healing of relationships, Duggal says, “our relationships are a reflection of our inner thoughts. When we work towards growing spiritually and healing the aspects of ourselves that have not worked for us till now, we can make a beautiful impact on our external world as well. This also holds true for our relationships. Additionally, spiritual healing helps us to heal any discord or pain that we carry in our relationships, and make us better equipped to manage and deal with our problems.”
Every relationship has its challenges and needs to be addressed in a specific manner. The stress we carry from our daily lives, often has a significant impact on our relationships as well, leading to issues like insecurity, lack of communication, breakdown of trust, severe anxiety around relationships, to name just a few. Hence, it is important to adopt a dynamic approach to tackle unique relationship problems. Identifying core issues is necessary to explore the foundations that have caused people to behave in a certain manner. Then, these core problems need to be healed. According to Duggal, apart from counselling, coaching and energy healing, various other healing remedies can also be practised such as the use of affirmations, switch-words, and clearing statements to create the desired shift in perspective and situation.
“Energy healing equips a person to manage the situation they are in while releasing the baggage of the past and the pain they carry. While there is no guarantee of tangible and immediate results, often one can feel tremendous changes in their lives. Also, a change in focus also gives people the ability to create and manifest more by continuing to work on themselves and growing each day,” she says.
Some relationships are past the point where they can be healed in a manner of the person’s choice, yet the process of healing is geared towards bringing out the best possible solution for one’s problem — even if at first, it does not seem the ideal solution. Duggal shares, “if one feels that their relationship is beyond the scope of healing and there is nothing one can do, the best way is to surrender and leave it to the universe for it to work towards our highest best, and let the course of the universe and time decide. During this process, they can work on healing their own selves and the pain that they carry within.”

Amber hired Investigator to uncover bad things about Jhonny, deets inside
Last year, actor Johnny Depp prevailed in a slander lawsuit brought by his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Amber made various accusations against Johnny during the six-week trial, claiming that he had mistreated her both physically and mentally. Investigator Paul Baressi has confessed that Amber hired him to “discover nasty things about Johnny.”
Paul admitted to Law and Crime Network, “I collected all of these historic document on him (Johnny Depp). The home he used to live in, the places his father worked, just really great stuff. Amber hired me in the summer of July 2019. I searched on every rock, every stone, all over the world to find out bad things about Johnny and we all came empty handed.”
He further added, ” She fired us. It was not until April of 2020, when I decided to share my time as a private detective with Amber. Johnny’s father was four years younger than his mother when they got married. He was a passive man and did not like confrontation. Johnny is just like his father, from what we have heard in court. However, the father let his mom call the shots rather than arguing.”
After dating for over three years, Johnny and Amber exchanged vows in a private ceremony at their Los Angeles home in 2015. Amber separated from Johnny in May 2016 and obtained a temporary restraining order against him. She said that during their relationship, Johnny had physically abused her, most frequently when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. On June 1, Amber was ordered to reimburse Johnny $10.35 million after he won his slander suit against her.
‘Maybe bit too overstated emotionally, superficial politically’, Hansal Mehta reacts to Laal Singh Chaddha
The film Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan, has received mixed reviews from Hansal Mehta. The director acknowledged the effort put into developing the movie and stated that it deserved to be successful. He said that he found the movie to be a little too politically superficial.
Around midnight, Hansal posted on Twitter his thoughts after having watched Laal Singh Chaddha. He wrote, “Watched #LaalSinghChaddha. It is a very engaging film, made with passion and love. Maybe a bit too overstated emotionally and a bit superficial politically for my taste, but a film made with so much care, heart, and honesty. It deserves to succeed. So much to admire.”
He additionally said, “But the truth is I found myself either moist-eyed or smiling for a major part of the film. Go watch #LaalSinghChaddha. Stop spreading Malaria.”
The film Laal Singh Chaddha, which has been directed by Advait Chandan, is the authorised Hindi adaptation of Tom Hanks’ 1994 Hollywood classic Forrest Gump. Aamir Khan makes his comeback to the big screen with this movie, following the failure of Thugs of Hindostan in 2018. Kareena Kapoor, Mona Singh, and Naga Chaitanya all play significant roles in it as well.
However, the movie hasn’t yet received the anticipated response at the ticket counters. In the first three days after its release, it grossed almost 27.70 crore.
Aamir was the subject of a complaint on Friday for allegedly disparaging the Indian Army and offending Hindu feelings with the movie. In one of the scenes, Laal Singh Chaddha is asked by Pakistani staff, “I offer Namaz and pray, Laal, why don’t you do the same?” Laal responds, “According to my mum, the entire puja paath is malaria. It causes riots.” The way in which a mentally challenged person was permitted to enlist in the Indian Army and participate in the Kargil War in the movie has also drawn criticism.

Latest trends in beauty: High-end fashion to street-style looks
“Confidence” is an essential element of “beauty”. It is important to have confidence. While people’s opinions, what we see and read online, and what society considers to be “beautiful” may influence us; one should not seek external validation about beauty. Beauty is what we perceive and believe. It lies in the confidence that comes from within. The most important thing to remember is to be a champion of your unique beauty.
In today’s world, there are several ways and benchmarks of beauty, and there are different ways to meet those; it should be left to the individual how they want to enhance their beauty. When it comes to aesthetics, I believe there should not be any definitions or standards and one should be able to express themselves as they want rather than following trends or abiding by any sort of rules or standards.
HOW THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY IS CHANGING THE GAME
As much of a luxury as they are in our daily lives, beauty products take up a great deal of space in our routines and wallets. Thus, multi-use items provide simple solutions that address multiple concerns at once. There are all-in-one products, from lip and cheek tints to SPF foundations, which take up less space and time to help spruce up one’s looks. Multi-purpose beauty goodies are not very uncommon today, with most top beauty brands having at least a few of them in their line-up. Switching to these ‘do-it-all’ formulas crafted for the modern, multi-tasking woman is indeed a great move. Adding to the novelty in the industry is Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is closing in the gaps between physical and digital experiences of wearing make-up. It adds to the shoppers’ experience and thus sales conversion, something that’s surely helping, especially given the disruption owing to the pandemic. In addition to all this, there is a growing demand for “clean” beauty products with added health benefits, which are increasingly appealing to environment-conscious consumers.
YOU GLOW, GIRL, NOT HAUTE MAKE-UP, OR STREET STYLE
With all the beauty trends washing over the industry, it’s simple to stand out by making your own style statement. Be true to yourself and your own sense of style by bringing your attitude with you. Incorporate styles that are built on your sense of individuality rather than merely being fixated on the current beauty trends. By the way you choose to dress, you may say a lot about yourself, your mood, your ideas, and what you perceive. Street style is a very contagious and instantaneous aspect of beauty that has revolutionised the way it’s manufactured and consumed. High-end beauty trends, on the other hand, are stylish and extravagant—leaving behind a style statement. Nevertheless, it is wise to accept your inherent beauty and know what works for you. You must discover what sets you apart from other individuals, and then cultivate an appreciation for what makes you special. Own your individuality and take pride in it. There’s no better medium to communicate beauty than with self-preference. All that counts is to be your original self. It doesn’t matter if you want to dress up or down; the most important thing is that you feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful in the clothes you’re wearing. Style, poise, and good taste are not things that can be purchased, but they can be learned and acquired. So, whether you decide on a vintage street style or high-end chic.

ANUJ B FLEXES IN SHINY ‘MIQESI’ VIDEO
If you are a fan of Punjabi hip-hop, you are in for a treat! ‘Miqesi’ by singer, songwriter, and composer Anuj B, just dropped but is already getting loads of attention. Anuj has been performing live since 2011, and the biggest feather in his cap was his performance at the Supreme Court of India in 2018. After many years in the business, he has released his eighth single, Miqesi. When asked about the inspiration behind this song, he says, “In today’s evolving world of relationships where true love and care seem to have lost their meaning, this song symbolises what happens to the heart of an honest artist who observes the increasing drug culture, one-night-stands, and hardcore party lifestyle around him, but remains unfazed, because his meaningful connections matter more to him, as well as the attraction he feels for one special person.”
Born and raised in Jalandhar, Punjab, Anuj graduated with a B.Tech from Lovely Professional University (LPU). Though he was studying engineering, he felt drawn to music. He used to sing from a young age in school, but he also started writing lyrics and composing music around the year 2011. He claims his biggest strength is his versatility in music. “There have been many inspirations for me, but KK is the one whose singing style has touched me the most,” he shares with candour. Apart from his musical training and background, the reason he ventured into making music was incidental. He shares the story with a smile, “I am blessed in a way that when I was nine years old, my father was learning the basics of music and I was fascinated and started learning from him too. This is how I began my musical journey from such a young age. Then, in the year 2011, I learnt how to play the guitar for six months from Vikram Biswa Sir, who is an amazing teacher, and later in 2014, I took musical classes for a year from Parth Sen Sir and learnt Hindustani classical ragas to hone my craft further. I feel my active involvement in making music was meant to be and when it happened, I felt spiritually connected.
Oncoming to the subject at hand, Anuj shares the interesting story behind the evolution of the song Miqesi. He says, “One day I happened to share my thoughts about an artist not being affected by the crazy temptations of an artist’s life, with Parvish. He too felt inspired by the story I wanted to narrate, and immediately went to the drawing board. Soon, he sent me a scratch of the song, which I loved. It kind of clicked instantly, and that’s how we started working on Miqesi. Whenever I work on a song, I always learn something new, and recording Miqesi taught me a variety of musical nuances. This is why I believe it was a unique and amazing experience to create it. It is never an easy task to break into an industry as competitive as the music one. Yet, Anuj has an interesting take when asked about the challenges he has faced. He asserts that the internet and social media have come as a boon to all budding and independent artists like him, and he uses these mediums readily to reach out to all the musical lovers across India and the world. The video accompanying the song has received many views as well. Anuj especially enjoyed the experience of making it. The concept of the video is the brainchild of Reo Gill, who visualised everything. Owing to its unique concept, however, Anuj felt that shooting the song was very exhausting, as it required numerous takes to be perfect. Yet, in the end, the entire team had a great time together. Next, he is working on a couple of new songs. Also in the pipeline is the release of songs that he created earlier but which needed some tweaking. He signs off by saying, “My motto in life has always been to be a learner throughout—learning music, enjoying music, creating music, and making the audience happy, and I will always strive to do this.”
