India's first and only adolescent art and design festival.

The Uable event, India's first and only adolescent super app, is a great opportunity to get a creative career started. Its goal is to choose the best entries to establish Uable's first Art & Design Collective. Partner companies such as The Noice Co, Mad Cap Workshops, and others will mentor, grow, and promote the Cohort. Graphic Tablets, Premium Art Supplies, Online Courses, and tens of thousands of U-Coins to spend on Uable's U-Store are all up for the taking.

The winners will be accepted into Uable's Art & Design Collective, where they will be able to expand their portfolio, interact with and learn from expert designers and artists, and get a head start on supplies. The winners may then use the app to encourage newer Collective members and grow their following. On the festival's final day (January 22nd), winners can display their work and take part in discussions on design tools, how to commercialise one's art, Design and Change: Creating for a New Age-The Gen Z Aesthetic, and other topics.

By IANSlife

Trends come and go, but some stick around for a while, such as the Work from Home look. Forget wearing casuals and try some new styles that are both comfortable and appropriate for online meetings and calls.

Being in style is always great, whether it's at the office or at home. Naveen Mahlawat, co-founder of, a fashion e-commerce site owned by MadBow Ventures Ltd, offers some new style advice for working from home:

The black and white top

This timeless combination never goes out of style. A black and white shirt teamed with a black trouser or skirt creates the perfect style, whether it's at your office desk or in your favourite chair at home.

K'taka Hijab Row Triggers Debate.

By M.K. Ashoka

The issue of wearing a hijab (head covering worn in public by Muslim women) to the colleges along with the uniform has sparked a debate in Karnataka over religious practices impacting the education system in the state. The matter has also snowballed into a controversy on whether the hijab could be considered as part of the uniform. The ruling BJP is deliberating on whether to take a call on allowing hijab as part of the uniform of college students. State Education Minister B.C. Nagesh, while opposing the wearing of hijab to classrooms, has said that a decision would be taken on the issue soon by the government.

The experts as well as students are divided over the issue. Those who are in favour state that the dress code in classrooms should not indicate faith or religion as it creates barriers between students as well as teachers. Those who support the wearing of hijab say that hijab should be treated as a scarf. Hijab is black in colour and it can't be a religious symbol as Islam is identified with the green colour. The hijab should be treated as a symbol of chastity, they maintain.

The denial of permission to six girls in the Government Girls' Pre University College in the communally sensitive district of Udupi in the state has created a controversy. Nagesh dubbed it as a political move and questioned whether centres of learning should become religious centres. Meanwhile, the girl students have decided to continue their protest until they are allowed to attend classes wearing hijab.
