Juttis are surprisingly versatile and can be worn for a whole range of occasions, with a variety of outfits. Be it a crazy night at a wedding sangeet, or a girls’ day out at a dance club or the neighbourhood cafe, these footwears hit that sweet spot of panache and comfort.

Aarti Chhabra and Akanksha Chhabra, owner of Pastels and Pop, lists down some ways to make your jutti look work with your indian or western wear.


* The ethnic look of juttis makes them a natural choice to be paired with an elegant sari along with a classy piece of temple jewellery for that timeless appearance.

* A jutti with a chic print can make monochrome jumpsuits look even edgier.

* You can spice up your everyday plain kurta with a bright pair, while the same pair can accompany your favourite pair of jeans or shorts with a tee.

* Many women have even started teaming up juttis with their work wear, for the flair it brings while feeling snug on the feet. A single pair of juttis, when accessorized smartly, can be the perfect complement to a whole range of outfits, including ethnic and western.

London based Srigopika Radhakrishnan and Aruna R Krishnan, Founder of fashion website That1Too.com, also have options to share.

For western looks.

* Start with the basics. Team up your jeans and white t-shirt with the jutti. You could also throw on a kalamkari scarf to complete the look.

* Since it’s monsoon time, one style you can never miss out on is classic pencil pants with a top and long overcoat. Throw in a pair of jutti to complete the look.

For Indo western looks:

* If you play by the rules, short kurtis with denims can be easily paired with a pair of juttis. Find the perfect pair of earrings to match your look and you are good to go.

* Short skirts in traditional fabrics like ikats and kalamkaris can be pretty much paired with any t-shirts or tops with statement pieces. A pair of juttis would be perfect for overall look.

Ethnic Looks:

* If you are going for a monochrome look, match your footwear with the colour in an ombre style. If you are wearing multiple colours, wear solid pair of juttis. (Bollywood Country)

Basil seeds or basil essential oil are proven to help prevent a wide range of health conditions, which makes it one of the most essential medical herbs known today. Basil has vitamin A, C, E, K, and Omega 3 components including cooling components too. It also contains minerals like Copper, Calcium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Zinc, and Potassium. An ancient Ayurvedic herb, basil has various proven benefits including being anti-inflammatory, ant-oxidant, immune-booster, pain-reducer, and blood vessel-protector.

This herb also contains cooling components thus making it really helpful for summers. It detoxifies the body and maintains one's body temperature pace. Adding to the benefits Basil contains antioxidant-rich volatile essential oils, which are considered hydrophobic, meaning they don't dissolve in water and are light and small enough to travel through the air and the pores within our skin. Basil's volatile essential oil is something that gives the herb its distinct smell and taste, but basil contains some great healing properties.

In the long history of Ayurveda, basil seeds were also called tukmaria seeds. These seeds may support one's gut health, may complete one's fiber quota, reduce blood sugar, help in weight loss, and also reduce cholesterol.

When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades.

The US researchers have discovered a class of immune cells that plays a role in miscarriage, which affects about a quarter of pregnancies.

Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco found that the recently discovered subset of cells known as extrathymic Aire-expressing cells in the immune system may prevent the mother's immune system from attacking the placenta and fetus.

The researchers showed that pregnant mice who did not have this subset of cells were twice as likely to miscarry, and in many of these pregnancies fetal growth was severely restricted.

"When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades -- not since the mother made a placenta when she herself was a fetus," said Eva Gillis-Buck, from UCSF.

"Our research suggests that this subset of immune cells is carrying out a sort of 'secondary education' -- sometimes many years after the better-known population of the educator cells have carried out the primary education in the thymus -- teaching T cells not to attack the fetus, the placenta and other tissues involved in pregnancy," she added. The findings are published in the journal Science Immunology.
