The story of the baby who was born in a stable

When you hear the news that an heir to the throne was born, you instantly associate a palace, attendants, luxurious gifts, and so much of glister with that specific moment. But in Bethlehem, sometime near the 1 A.D. an infant was born- King and Kin to all, but with none of the above mentioned luxuries. Baby Jesus was born in a stable, and was placed in a manger as soon as he was born, instead of a comfortable cot. What, exactly does this signify to us? The Lord was born poor, to poor parents who were fleeing death; parents...

Make-up or No make-up?

Emma Watson has said; “Beauty is what we feel inside, which also shows outside us”. Although this philosophical idea gives a sense of what beauty really is, the world is yet so fake that one cannot imagine going to the grocer’s without a touch of a make-up. Medical magazines argue day and night that these cosmetics contain a lot of unhealthy chemicals and bleaching agents, but, looks matter a lot in this world, that we all let these arguments in one ear and out the other. Why do we need make-up? That is obviously to look better and to...
