  • Aamir says that he is very indisciplined

Actor Aamir Khan, often known as Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist, says he is “totally indisciplined” in real life, but his work brings out the discipline in him.

The actor-producer on Monday launched his friend and filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani’s pilot wife-turned-author Manjeet Hirani’s book titled “How To Be Human” here.

The book talks about how people can learn from animals around them. In the book, Manjeet has mentioned how her pet dog Buddy Hirani is very disciplined when it comes to his diet.

On discipline in his own life, Aamir told the media: “Actually, I am not disciplined at all. I am totally indisciplined. The only thing that gets me to be disciplined is my work so if I was not an actor and not in this field, I would have been most indisciplined person.

“The only reason I am disciplined is because my work requires me to be so. Otherwise, I am not disciplined. I know it’s very hard for people to imagine that… But this is the fact and people who are close to me know that and they know how indisciplined I am. The only thing is work that pulls me back to track and makes me do what I have to do.”

Aamir, who was the voice of Pluto the dog in Bollywood film “Dil Dhadakne Do”, admits there’s a lot people can learn from pets.


Aamir thinks one can learn a lot from their pets.

“It’s so true that actually we can learn so much not only from our own pets but from animals around us because they are really less judgmental than we are.

“We are very judgmental on many things and for many reasons which you don’t need to be. Whereas, an animal is also judgmental but on a very few things. They are judgmental about their survival… Like if a deer is walking in Forest, he would be judgmental towards a tiger thinking ‘He will eat me’, whereas we are judgmental on so many levels all the time.”

Aamir also said he rarely thinks beyond the present. “I live in the now and I never have long-term plans. It’s always about what I am to do right now.”

“I have also realised that no matter what I am doing right now, my entire focus is on that one thing — whether it is eating, meeting somebody, watching a film, shooting a film or a discussion with someone. Whatever I am doing at time, I am fully into that.”

“Nothing else distracts me from that. So, for me it comes naturally. I don’t think of the future. Sometimes I multitask when I need to, but I don’t enjoy that,” he added. IANS

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.

In the era of computers and smartphones, it is hard to imagine a task that hasnt been made easier by some sort of technology. You all may know how harmful the blue light emitted by computers, smartphones, tablets, televisions, and other electronics is for your eyes. Since the inception of the pandemic, the use of these electronic devices has increased, and we all know it can have multiple undesirable effects on the eye.
Dark circles are formed mostly due to the reflection of the dark maroon underlying orbicularis oculi, a circular muscle around our eye. The dark pigmentation gives you an exhausted look which makes you seem sick or sleep-deprived. The skin around the eye is the thinnest, results in reflection of the said dark maroon underlying orbicularis oculi. The artificial light from the screen of your electronic devices causes a lot of drying, as it steals the moisture from the skin and also causes a breakdown of collagen
