I can't do sexy, Youtube

April 22, 2017:

How many of us are in a haste to follow the crazy fad and keeping up with being sensuous?

Well, in reality, we all are.

“I can’t do sexy” is an amusingly self-deprecating video where Sofia Ashraf, singer and featured artist of the musical video blatantly accepts that she is fit to overtake any role except for appearing sexy.


The lyrics of the video are gripping and can make anyone mull over the keynote idea propagated by the lyricist Sofia Ashraf.

“I am unsexy and I know it, I show it and I own it”

The contemplation sets in motion with a reality check on the redundant attempts to give an impression of being sexy. We tend to submerge our peculiar individuality into fancy-pants not realizing what we ought to lose in the exorbitant route.

Taking pride in being who you are and celebrating your individuality is the rarest of the rare things.

What may happen if you fail to meet the standards of Sexy?

Girls like to reiterate this question from time to time and develop the hysterics just to validate their existence by men. When a man says “You will need a makeover to look hot”, it intimates that men prefer hot and sexy women more than the unsexy (undifferentiated) versions.

The growing madness to look sexy and yearning for acceptance cripple one’s stance in the crowd. It is very important to know that whether – ‘sexy or unsexy’, you must show it and own it unashamedly.

Let’s redefine beauty…

According to the Merriam-Webster, “beauty is the qualities in a person or a thing that give pleasure to the senses or the mind”.

Italicize that everything that gives pleasure to the senses should be owned by the self and not defined by anyone else. If you can savor your own attributes, nobody has the power to walk over you.

Something which is real will always be flawed and imperfect. Nevertheless, it is the unnatural form of beauty which we call flawless.

Bullying may occur anywhere, at any time, in person or online (cyberbullying), and can take many forms, including verbal, physical, and social.

What Is Bullying?

Bullying is a pattern of recurrent aggressive behavior in which one person (or a group of individuals) in a position of authority intentionally intimidate or abuse another individual to cause bodily or emotional harm to that other. Bullying may take place in either a physical or verbal manner. Bullied individuals, as well as those who bully others, may have long-term repercussions.

Bullying may occur anywhere, at any time, in person or online (cyberbullying), and can take many forms, including verbal, physical, and social. Bullies utilize their position of power — such as physical strength, knowledge of something embarrassing, or popularity — to exert control over or damage other people. Many people assume that bullying occurs solely during childhood; nevertheless, bullying does not necessarily stop after a person reaches the age of adulthood.

Copper earrings

Silver and gold have always been preferred when it comes to wearing jewellery. Right from the times of monarchy in India, wealth and riches have been associated with wearing gold and silver for the various properties they have. Copper is a metal that has always been worn by the poor. It is not a metal that carries a significant association with health or wealth, but wearing at least one article of copper is extremely beneficial for health.

Copper is a reddish-brown metal that cannot be worn on its own. It has to be worn in the form of an alloy to prevent a reaction. Copper oxidizes in air and forms a green layer on it when exposed, much like the Statue of Liberty. Usually, bangles, chains, or rings of copper always have brass and traces of silver in them which helps with stabilizing its reactivity.

Traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market.

By Md Waquar Haider

When popular smartphone brands like Xiaomi and realme entered the laptop market in India last year, they were expected to shake the existing giants, specifically under the Rs 50,000 category. However, chip shortage and supply crunch have somewhat dented their plans to make a significant mark to date. According to industry experts, the issue with smartphone makers entering the laptop category is two-fold. The first one is a massive supply crunch in the laptop component market and only big brands are able to get volume and supplies.

The other factor is that the traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market. Top 3 players control more than 70 per cent of the market and strong portfolio, distribution, and channel reach as well as brand marketing has helped them massively. "New brands can surely make a dent in the consumer laptop market but are challenged by supply issues right now. Watch out for them in 2022 as and when supply situation eases up," Navkendar Singh, Research Director, Client Devices & IPDS, IDC India told IANS.

Dominated by HP Inc, Lenovo and Dell, the traditional PC market (inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations) in India continued to be robust as the shipments grew by 50.5 per cent year-over-year (YoY) in the second quarter (Q2), according to IDC. Notebook PCs continue to hold more than three-fourth share in the overall category and grew 49.9 per cent YoY in 2Q21, reporting a fourth consecutive quarter with over 2 million units. Desktops also indicated a recovery as shipments grew 52.3 per cent YoY after recording the lowest shipments of the decade in 2Q20.

According to Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR, driven by the pandemic and the associated accelerated pivot to remote work, learn and unwind culture, PCs have been witnessing heightened demand. "Despite the current supply chain constraints, PCs are here to stay in the new never normal. In the run-up to the festive season, established PC market leaders will continue to leverage their brand salience and gain market share," Ram told IANS.
