WASHINGTON: Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump, the candidate of the upcoming U.S. Presidential elections in November, is going to celebrate the festival of Diwali in a Hindu temple in the vital state of Virginia along with the Indian-American community members who have in past supported the Democratic party in the U.S. polls.

The campaign officials and community leaders have reported that Ivanka Trump will celebrate Diwali with Indian-Americans during her visit to the Rajdhani Temple at Chantilly on Wednesday, mentioned PTI.


It is the first time in the history that a family member of one of the top Presidential candidates will be visiting a Hindu temple.

NewsGram brings to you current foreign news from all over the world.

This visit of Ivanka Trump to the temple, a 34-year-old successful businesswoman, to the Rajdhani Temple would “go a long way in breaking the stereotype,” that the campaign “represents only angry white voters,” said Rajesh Gooty, an Indian-American community leader in Virginia.

“This is a big positive for the community,” he told PTI.

Ivanka is also playing a key role in the campaign for her father, Donald Trump.

This move of Trump to send her daughter to a Hindu temple is seen both as a recognition been given to the significant and important Indian-American community in the US and also as an effort to woo this culturally and religiously diverse community for the Presidential elections which are due on November 8.

In fact Trump last week attended a charity event organised to raise funds for Kashmiri Pandits and Hindu victims of terrorism in Bangladesh. The event was organised by the Republican Hindu council and it was attended by more than 5,000 people. Again, This also happened for the first time that a Presidential candidate attended an Indian-American event.

It is believed that the traditional vote bank of the Indian-American community who have grown up to a strong number of 30,000 of the Democratic would penetrate by seeing the latest actions and motives of Trump, mentioned PTI.

It is clear from the results of 2008 and 2012 elections that whosoever wins London county will win over Virginia. There has been a remarkable growth of the Indian-American community in the county in the past 16 years, especially on the account of the emergence of an IT corridor near the Dulles Airport.

The aim of the book is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

By Siddhi Jain

Delhi-based author Pritisha Borthakur is set to release her new book, 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories'. The 1,404-word children's book was put together to address a new kind of societal debacle in the family system. The author says the aim is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.

Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.

Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background

Clean and maintained hands boost confidence in daily life activities.

If you feel that clean and well-groomed hands are just an essential prerequisite for women, you might like to think twice. Men should equally pay attention to their hands because our hand houses 1,500 bacteria living on each square centimeter of its skin. You can easily assume what havoc it can create in our body because in India we have the culture of eating with our hands and spaces beneath nails can become breeding heaven for germs. Moreover, clean and maintained hands boost confidence in their daily life activities. Therefore, it's important to keep your hands clean irrespective of your gender by washing or sanitizing at regular intervals. And, to keep them groomed, you don't have to visit a salon.

Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:

* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
