April 22, 2017: It is true to the core that sometimes we learn lessons of life in a hard manner and the transformation we go through is a very difficult phase. To accept change all of a sudden needs time. Here is where Cartoons come into the picture. Believe it or not!

People of different age groups have different preferences, be it outings, sports or the field of entertainment but there is something that transcends this generation gap and all the family members can be seen enjoying to their heart while watching these animated figures namely CARTOONS.

Cartoons have been entertaining us for decades. One can talk to one’s grandparents and see them laughing and being nostalgic about the cartoons of “their” time.

Over the passage of time, cartoons have changed but one thing that has not changed about cartoons is the life lessons they teach so easily. It is said that time teaches the crucial lessons of life but it cannot be denied that cartoons teach vital life lessons so easily while entertaining us and leave a long lasting impact on our mind.

Sanhita Baruah from Delhi says, “In the midst of the vagaries of life, they provide us with a trip to the land of goodness and fairies, of imaginations and possibilities. A childhood that wasn’t spent watching cartoons or reading comic strips, no wonder, seems too dull to imagine.”

While talking to kids, we came across these comments, Aaryanveer, a student of 6th standard says, ”Chhota Bheem has taught me to fight the problems that come my way and I learnt about having confidence in myself from Thomas and friends.”

Ekanki, a student of class 5 says, “Cartoons help us increase our limits of imagination.”She also said that she has learnt qualities of cooperation and finding the truth from cartoons.

Here is a list of a few popular cartoons and the lessons they taught us:

1. Hard work and perseverance will take you a long way

This is the life lesson we have learned from the action-avanturistic cartoon, ‘Dragonball Z.’ The little, smart and strong Gohan is definitely one of the most popular cartoon character names, that we will all remember as the most powerful saiyajin ever. Gohan will forever remain in our childhood memories as the cartoon superhero that never gives up and is constantly pushing himself. Regardless of the number of times he was beaten, defeated and destroyed – Gohan was always finding the indescribable inner strength that was making him even more determined and stronger than before.

2. Helping friends in the hour of need

None of us can forget the polite and gentle octopus in Oswald. He taught us that w should always be there for our friends even if sometimes it means going out of the way.
Free spirited and energetic Daisy always inspired us to try new things and enjoy to the fullest.

3. There is nothing wrong in asking for help when needed

Enid Blyton’s hardworking taxi driver Noddy always finds himself in troubles dye to his impulsiveness but he has the guts to ask his friends for help. All of us remember Big Ears and the life lessons he taught Noddy and simultaneously to us. It also showed the ones who dig the pit for others, fall in it themselves and so was the fate of the Gobbo and Sly

4. There is nothing like ghosts. Actual evil lies in human himself

If you have read this true life fact and Scooby Doo is the cartoon you have associated with it, then you have been definitely one of the biggest fans of this famous cartoon character. Going back in the beautiful ‘Scooby Doo era’, we will remember that in practically every episode of this amazing cartoon, the criminal (final culprit) was never the one we were thinking (a ghost specifically) it was during the whole time. Therefore, the life lesson #1 that Scooby Doo and his friends taught us is to not have fallacious opinions and predispositions about people. But, this cartoon taught us something else too. Life lesson #2 from the Scooby Doo cartoon is to be problem solvers. What does it mean? Scooby Doo and his Mystery Gang were always solving every mystery from every adventure they have been through.

5. Trust your gut instincts

Is there anyone that hasn’t watched even an episode from the awesome ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’? Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo perfectly showed us that no matter the fear, no matter the uncertainty – always be guided by your inner voice, thus your gut instincts. This is how these four ninja turtles were managing to get out of troubles and successfully solve any of their mystery missions. So, whenever you are in the middle of a trouble and you feel that something is right or wrong – you need to trust your gut instincts.

There are many more cartoon series and the infinite number of life lessons they taught us so smoothly while making us fall in peals of laughter. Just open your T.V and enjoy this visual treat while nourishing your mind at the same time.

Colorless chemicals were developed and mixed in varying ratios to dye hair.

A couple of years ago, finding a strand of grey hair meant visiting the parlor to cover it up. Women and men refused to admit their age, and refused to let it show. Be it moustache, eyebrows, or hair on the head, it was dyed a luscious black, or reddish-brown for those who wanted to go natural. Today, the trend of coloring hair has nothing to do with age. Young boys and girls sport bright colors and hairstyles, which is now a marker of how modern one can be.

This notion of modernity associated with neon streaks and an almost gothic look originates from the ancient Egyptian civilization, where it was considered fashionable to look different from the natural features one was born with. Kohl, lipstick, perfume, and makeup were the inventions of those who hoped to live even after death. Likewise, they were the first people to discover hair dye. Initially, they dyed their hair black, to cover the grey. They used compounds that were extracted from plants, but some of them were lethal. So, they took to extracting the color from fermented leeches.

One of the bookshop at Daryaganj, Chandni Chowk, Delhi.

The history of Daryaganj goes back to the era of Mughal dynasty, and so its history is as old as the old city of Shahjahanabad, now Chandni Chowk. Interestingly, this market was known as Faiz Bazaar in the Mughal era and was considered as an important commercial place.

In fact, at that time this area was very posh, and had beautiful houses on both sides of a stream from a hauz (meaning, water storage tank) flowing down the centre. Not only this, trees were lined up for shade and it looked like a marvellous garden had been turned into a market.
