November 1, 2016: At times, we are under a false illusion that we are going to like almost everyone we interact with. In reality, that’s not how it works!

It’s inevitable you might dislike people for some reason or the other. And, it is important to deal with it in the right manner. Different people tackle it in a different way. Some would like to go on and argue with them or bang their heads to make the other person understand their point of view when it’s a sheer waste of time as he/she is not even bothered to listen to you.


But, people who are smart and mature, they understand other’s perspectives and deal with it in a unique way:

They accept the fact that they are not really going to like everyone

First and foremost, they accept the fact that they are not going to like everyone in their life. They also accept the fact that not everyone will like them as well, and this is how it works.
It is obvious that the people we don’t like are intrinsically bad human beings. It is just that they have values or opinions which are different from ours.

They do not ignore or dismiss the people they don’t like, they simply bear with them

Being around with the people you don’t like is difficult; you may cringe at their constant criticism or grit your teeth at their lousy jokes. Smart people bear with them no matter how difficult that is.
The best way to deal with people you don’t like is to remember that you are not that perfect either, yet there are people who tolerate you.

They focus on themselves

When people annoy you, it’s important to handle your frustration. Sometimes, what we don’t like in other people is often what we don’t like in ourselves. Maybe they are just pushing the button.
Matured people focus on themselves and calm themselves down in such situations.

They pause and get a grip on their adrenaline pump
When situations seem to go out of control, mature people pause, take a deep breath, and go to the intellectual part of their brain, to avoid arguments.

They allow the necessary space between them

If everything else fails, smart and mature people allow the space between themselves and those they dislike. They simply excuse themselves and go on their way.
With a bit of distance and empathy, you may be able to even interact both with those people you dislike in a calm and composed manner.

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.
