Q: Is pregnancy easier the second time around, in a sense you know what to expect while expecting?

A: Even though you’ve been there and done that, your second pregnancy might spring a surprise at you. They say it’s a lot easier the second time around, but that’s not always true. Of course, you are more experienced than the first time, however, the second pregnancy definitely differs physiologically from the first time.

Q: Why is it important for women to continue working while pregnant?

A: I feel it’s very important to keep oneself busy during pregnancy. It helps you turn off your worries and have a more comfortable pregnancy. In fact, I have always led a very active lifestyle and I just can’t change that about myself just because I am pregnant. I would say do what makes you happy for a healthy pregnancy. If working makes you happy, then you should do it.

Q: Fitness should be an important part of your pregnancy journey, you agree?

A: Definitely. Working out during pregnancy has multiple benefits. It relieves stress, battles mood swings, strengthens immunity, and prepares your body for delivery. That’s why my association with PUMA, especially now, makes even more sense.

Q: Your fitness routine through this pregnancy?

A: I have been doing a lot of yoga. Pre-natal yoga is helping me power through my pregnancy.

Q: While children are a joy they are also an expense, many women shirk the financial discussion with their partner, do you think couples should speak about it?

A: Yes, of course. One must have an open discussion with their partner about their financial well-being. Getting ready for parenthood involves a lot of financial preparation. Bringing up a child is a huge responsibility and it’s very important to assess your finances.

Q: Your recent images in the PUMA studio line went viral as they portrayed a stronger fiercer you… is that a new Kareena??

A: I have always been very strong and fierce. I wouldn’t call it the new Kareena. In fact, I have always believed in encouraging women to be their unapologetic self. My association with PUMA has given me an opportunity to connect with and encourage more women to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle. Fitness is an integral part of my life and I truly enjoy it in its various forms. It feels great to be the face of a brand you deeply resonate with. My recent images in PUMA’s Studio Collection reflects who I am.

Q: What is the one difference between this and your first pregnancy?

A: I guess I am more prepared and confident this time around. I was quite nervous and jittery since I was going to turn a mother for the first time. This time around, I am way calmer and thankfully, I am not going berserk yet.

The actress can be seen wearing chic yoga wear as she launches the latest yoga collection- Studio Line by PUMA.

She adds: “PUMA’s Studio Line feels like a second skin, making working out easier and more stylish. I hope to inspire women to show up to their mat and live a life of confidence and self-care.” (IANS)

SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook critics pounced Wednesday on a report that the social network plans to rename itself, arguing it may be seeking to distract from recent scandals and controversy.

The report from tech news website The Verge, which Facebook refused to confirm, said the embattled company was aiming to show its ambition to be more than a social media site.

Surgeons attached a pig kidney to a pair of large blood vessels outside the body of a deceased recipient so they could observe it for two days, and the kidney did what it was supposed to do.

Scientists temporarily attached a pig's kidney to a human body and watched it begin to work, a small step in the decades-long quest to one day use animal organs for lifesaving transplants.

Pigs have been the most recent research focus to address the organ shortage, but among the hurdles: A sugar in pig cells, foreign to the human body, causes immediate organ rejection. The kidney for this experiment came from a gene-edited animal, engineered to eliminate that sugar and avoid an immune system attack.

Killer Smog in Delhi.

Developed by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, a Decision Support System (DSS) that extends the ability of the existing air quality early warning system (AQEWS) to have decision-making capability for air quality management in Delhi-NCR was launched on Tuesday.

The website for the DSS ( is designed to help the Commission for Air Quality Management for NCR and Adjoining Areas (CAQM) by delivering quantitative information about the contribution of emissions from Delhi and its 19 surrounding districts; the contribution of emissions from eight different sectors in Delhi; and the contribution from biomass-burning activities in the neighbouring states.

These information would assist in managing the air quality in a timely manner, a release from the Ministry of Earth Sciences said.

The need was stated by the CAQM, which was formed by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, during a meeting held in January 2021.

Recently, the Commission reviewed the progress made by IITM and had in principle approved the current version of DSS for air quality management in the Delhi-NCR. The IITM has also developed a new website for DSS with the entire system made operational, the release said.

Union Minister of State for Earth Sciences, Jitendra Singh, while launching the website for AQEWS on the occasion of 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' week organised by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, said, "DSS is a significant contribution to 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' on behalf of MoES and IITM and suggestions are invited on this issue."

The website also has a feature whereby the users can create their own emission reduction scenarios (from 20 different districts, including Delhi) so as to examine the possible projected improvement in air quality in Delhi for the next five days.

"This information would explicitly highlight the most important emission sources responsible for the degradation of air quality in Delhi and suggest possible solutions to ameliorate the same. With a plethora of quantitative data, the AQEWS integrated with DSS could become a user-friendly tool for air-quality management in and around Delhi," the release said. (IANS/JB)
