NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

* Avoid long showers: Long hot showers on cold winter mornings can sure feel life-changing. They provide much-needed comfort but in the bargain end up adding to our skin miseries as the heat can harm your skin and leave it susceptible to damage.

* Moisturise: Soft and supple skin demands that you hydrate it adequately. Hydration is the key to glossy and dewy skin. Opt for products with special ingredients like mineral laden glacial water that hydrate the skin and quench its thirst.

* Winter make-up: To battle dullness and protect your glow, from winter winds, you need to keep the skin moisturised. Peach and milk are the perfect ingredients to provide complete nourishment and protection to your skin from winter damage. Regular moisturising is essential to keep skin winter-ready.

* Pedicure and manicure: Since your feet and hands are most exposed to cold, they dry up easily. Whether you do-it-yourself or visit a salon, treat your hands and feet to frequent pedicures and manicures during winters to keep them soft and smooth.

* Glove up: Anything that acts as a barrier between the skin and cold harsh temperatures, helps trap the moisture in the skin. So it’s best to slip on some gloves after applying lotion to help moisturise parched hands.

* Take water breaks: Drinking water can often be neglected due to the lack of thirst impulse during winter season. Consuming lots water is the only way to keep your skin active and hydrated. Drinking water detoxifies and cleanses the body toxins.

* Diet: Ensure your diet includes foodstuffs that are nourishing and hydrate your body from within. Opt for avocado, cucumbers, almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, eggs and other food items rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Intake of these will ensure that you have hydrated and supple skin through the dry and cold season.

* Lip prep: Apply a thick layer of nourishing balm and leave on to absorb while you’re applying your daily skin moisturizing lotion. It helps you prevent chapped lips and will keep your lips well moisturised.

* Don’t skip sunscreen: Although we are less exposed to the sun in winter, we can’t protect ourselves from its rays completely. It is essential to carry your sunscreen with you, especially if you’re an outdoor person. (IANS)

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.

Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

In modern times, many social movements aim to bring reform to the society we live in, on the basis of certain existing patterns. Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality. Despite all these so-called movements, in southern India, certain societies that patronise matriarchy have existed since before India's independence. The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for. Even so with their social structure. Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.
