Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive” – Dalai Lama

New Delhi, Sept 14, 2016: Indeed humanity has failed to survive yet again in Capital State, Delhi. 37-year-old Chhote Lal who runs a tea shop had to roam around in the streets of Delhi in an ambulance for four hours with his wife’s dead body before the cremation. Not just that, even the landlord allegedly did not allow to keep it at his rented accommodation in Karkardooma village in east Delhi.

Not just that, even the landlord allegedly did not allow to keep it at his rented accommodation in Karkardooma village in east Delhi. Chhote Lal had admitted his 35-year-old wife, Anju in Hedgewar Hospital, 2-3 days back when she was complaining of high fever, mentioned the PTI reports.

She took her last breath yesterday in a hospital. The police suspect this to be a case of ‘chikungunya’. Later that night, when grieving husband took his wife’s body to his rented house which is in Karkardooma, his landlord too, has refused to keep the body in the house. Finding no way out of this situation, he then decided to keep the body in the lane where his home is situated, but the neighbours had objected to that as well.

Having lost all hopes, he took the body back to the hospital where he was told that the authorities cannot keep the body.

Lal’s landlord, Babloo told the police that Lal lives on the third floor of the building and it is not well ventilated so there was a possibility that the body might begin to decay in the cramped space. However, Babloo has helped Lal by giving him Rs. 2000 and arranging him an AC ambulance to preserve the body.

With no option left, Lal went around the streets of Delhi with his wife’s body in an ambulance for almost four hours until he was spotted by the police staff near the Cross River Mall. On knowing about the whole matter, the staff called up Bhaswar Singh, a businessman residing in the area, around 12:30 a.m.

Later, Singh helped Lal by letting him keep the body at his home overnight. “Some police staff and Singh’s staff helped Lal perform the last rites of his wife who was cremated today morning,” said Lal.

With multiple brands coming up with new standards of vegan and sustainable beauty, many consumers are left confused and doubting the authenticity of these claims.

By Plabita Sharma

The World Vegan month of November usually brings with itself an increased amount of dialogue and searches about Vegan lifestyle, sustainable living and clean beauty. Before pondering any further, it is important to understand what the Vegan lifestyle is and how it goes beyond the concept of consuming a plant-based diet. Veganism essentially is a lifestyle that is driven by compassionate choices and an increased awareness of one's actions on the world. Thus motivated by the two, a vegan individual usually carefully curates their day-to-day practices in a manner that does little to no- harm to the planet, the people and all of its inhabitants.

Beauty as industry has time and again been scrutinised for its effects on the consumers and the ecosystem - this can be during the manufacturing process or the effect it has on the consumer's thought processes. Now, as the world moves towards adopting Global Sustainability Goals, committing to a world that works with the natural resources instead of against them - it is only fair for each individual to be curious about making the right choices to make their beauty bag as consciously curated as possible. With multiple brands coming up with new standards of vegan and sustainable beauty, many consumers are left confused and doubting the authenticity of these claims. So here is a quick guide that can help you make the right choices:

Vegan and cruelty free labels: Keeping true to the traditional meaning of Vegan - any vegan beauty product means that it is completely plant based and has no animal ingredients or any of their by-products like honey, beeswax, dairy product etc. Similarly, cruelty-free as a label means that the ingredients or the final product did not test on animals or harm any animals during the production process. One way to test the authenticity is to check if these products are legally certified by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), or verified by Vegan organisations as The Vegan Society and others. Cruelty-free and vegan products are also generally categorized by having cleaner and gentler formulas as they are mostly deprived of harsh chemicals and solvents.
