  • Actress Ragini Khanna who got fame from TV Show ‘Sasural Genda Phool’, speaks about her experience working with Actor Nazwazzudin Siddiqui
  • Being from the family of superstar Govinda, Ragini Khanna shares her thoughts on nepotism in the industry.

‘Yes, it exists for some for many. Eventually your talent and your hard work matters’, Ragini Khanna opines about nepotism.

Q1. Why have you been away from the industry for such a long time?
I’ve honestly not been away for a very long time, I’ve been around. I was just searching for the right script and the right project to come back with. I lost health post doing a lot of television. My priority was to keep my health in checkup work which was allowed by myself. Now I’m absolutely willing to take up work because now I’m in my perfect shape and body.
Q2. Do you think going out of work is common in the industry nowadays?
You’re never out of work, you’re constantly working. It’s just about the how much visible you’re in front of the audience. In fact, I feel being too much into the audiences life is also a bit of an overdose, nowadays, everything needs to be your space. Actors are in everybody’s space. I generally believe in having a certain amount of exclusivity. As a person, I want to breathe an actor in my constant life. I don’t want an actor to be on my social media, my Facebook etc. Agreed an actor needs to be everywhere but when he has the right film or the right TV show. I could be incorrect for many people who think actors should be constantly seen, but for me, it’s more important to be rightly seen. It’s always quality over quantity.
Q3. Being from the family of Superstar Govinda, what are your views n Nepotism in the industry?
Yes, it exists for some for many. Eventually your talent and your hard work matters. Skills, crafts and your passion. For me it’s not about getting launched or making a first impression, it’s about longevity and sustaining and if ur not here for long enough then ur not good enough.
Q4. Being an actor which medium is more effort consuming, TV or Cinema?
TV is extremely physically consuming. you’re bound to lose your physical strength especially if you’re doing your daily soap. Because times constraints are too hectic. It’s extremely painful and exhausting.
Q5. Any plans to come back in the television industry? Of yes, What kind of role you would like to play?
If I get the right show, director and script, why not? I never differentiate between the mediums. For me, it was always content over the medium.
Q6.How was your experience working with one of the finest actors in Bollywood Nawazuddin Siddiqui?
My experience of working with Nawazuddin was phenomenal. He’s a very good actor and a better person to work with. He’s humble, sincere and genuine which is ideal to have all these qualities in your co-actor.
Asking about her upcoming projects, Ragini Khanna told NewsGram,’Really can’t speak much about it right now. I haven’t signed up anything. Nothing is official to speak about the project I’m considering or being considered for.’

Pickles bottled in various combinations

India is known for its pickles, popularly called 'Achaar', even across the world. But who thought about the idea of pickles in the first place? Apparently, the idea of making pickles first came from the ancient civilisation of Mesopotamia, where archaeologists have found evidence of cucumbers being soaked in vinegar. This was done to preserve it, but the practice has spread all over the world today, that pickles mean so much more than just preserved vegetables.

In India, the idea of pickle has nothing to do with preservation, rather pickle is a side dish that adds flavour and taste to almost anything. In Punjab, parathas are served with pickle; in the south, pickle and curd rice is a household favourite, and in Andhra, it is a staple, eaten with everything. The flavour profile of pickles in each state is naturally different, suited to each cuisine's taste. Pickles are soaked in oil and salt for at least a month, mixed with spices and stored all year round. Mango season is often synonymous with pickle season as a majority of Indians love mango pickle. In the coastal cities, pickles are even made out of fish and prawns.

Spiral bound notebooks allow writers to easily access each part of the page

It is impossible to detail the history of bookbinding without understanding the need for it. A very useful, and yet simple invention, spiral coils that hold books together and allow mobile access to the user came about just before WWII, but much before that, paper underwent a massive change in production technique.

Beginning in China, paper was made of bamboo sticks slit open and flattened. In Egypt, papyrus was made from the reeds that grew in the Nile. In India, long, rectangular strips of palm leaves were stitched together to form legible documents. When monasteries were established, scrolls came into being. Parchment paper, or animal hide, also known as vellum, were used to copy out texts periodically to preserve them. Prior to all this, clay tablets were used to record important events, and in some cases, rock edicts were made.

To keep the value and quality of what you offer, whether it's a romantic breakfast in bed or a royal wedding gift that will be remembered for years. The concept of gift-giving has taken on a number of shapes in today's society. Devina Singhania, the Founder of 'LE JAHAAN', a local home and decor accessories company, explains how the gifting paradigm has shifted.

Q: What do consumers expect from the gifting business and packaging designers these days?

A: Today's consumers are expecting more minimal sustainable products, designs and mediums. They are now more conscious about how their purchase affects the environment. Considering this shift in consumer buying, it's extremely important for companies to increase their commitments to responsible business practices and design products that are meant to be reused or recycled.
