Popular designer Masaba Gupta says she has come to realise that beauty is a different kind of burden, which keeps changing with age.

Masaba, who is the daughter of veteran actress Neena Gupta and former West Indies batsman Vivian Richards, shared a photograph of herself sporting a black leotard on Instagram on Friday night.

“I have come to realise that beauty is a different kind of burden as you keep growing. When I was younger, it was more of a longing to be conventional and check all the boxes/fit-in kind of a burden. Now,that I am almost 30… It is more an unapologetic, rebellious kind of a burden. Either way, this whole damn idea of beauty is a burden,” she wrote alongside the image.

Hearing Loss May up Cognitive Decline with Age, Says Study

Hearing impairment is associated with accelerated cognitive decline with age, though the impact of mild hearing loss may be lessened by higher education, researchers say.

The findings suggest that those with more serious hearing impairment had worse performance at the initial visit on a pair of commonly used cognitive assessment tests.

However, the association of mild hearing impairment with rate of cognitive decline was modified by education, said the researchers at University of California, San Diego.

“We surmise that higher education may provide sufficient cognitive reserve to counter the effects of mild hearing loss, but not enough to overcome effects of more severe hearing impairment,” said senior author Linda K. McEvoy, Professor at the varsity.

For the study, published in the Journal of Gerontology: Series A Medical Sciences, the research team tracked 1,164 participants with a mean age 73.5 years of whom 64 per cent were women.

Mild hearing impairment was associated with steeper decline among study participants without a college education.

All had undergone assessments for hearing accuracy and cognitive function between 1992 and 1996 and had up to five subsequent cognitive assessments at approximately four-year intervals. None used a hearing aid.

They found that almost half of the participants had mild hearing impairment, with 16.8 per cent suffering moderate-to-severe hearing loss.

The team said that mild hearing impairment was associated with steeper decline among study participants without a college education, but not among those with higher education.
