Listed below are few basic grooming tips and tools for men can try at-home

Inaccessibility to salons and the fear of stepping out has completely evolved the way men look at grooming services. The new at-home environment has created a huge demand for easy-to-use grooming tools and do-it-yourself (DIY) styling products. Additionally, apart from the comfort and convenience factors, consumers prefer having more control over their style and overall looks. This has led to a massive uprise in the popularity of personal care and even skincare appliances.

Listed below are few basic grooming tips and tools for men can try at-home:

Beard Styling

Beard trimmer provides precision, easiness and a salon-like trim and style in few simple steps. To maintain a clean beard, it is important to use a product that gives facial hair neat and sharp cuts. Therefore, the use of trimmers that come with a set of clippers or multiple length settings allow precision for an even trim. The first thing before you shave is to decide the shape of your beard to suit your face. For instance, for rounder faces, keeping a fuller beard is recommended while for a slimmer look, sport a more streamlined and refined beard. Once you have shaved the beard into shape, apply beard oil to keep your beard soft, healthy, and moisturized.

Hair Care

Now that you cannot go to salons and need to tend to your hair at home, starting with hair spa can be a good idea. To do so, oil your hair first and let it stay for 20 minutes. Then, take a towel and dip it in hot water. Now, wrap the towel around your hair so that the steam helps the oil penetration deeper inside your scalp. The next step is to wash your hair with a good quality shampoo and conditioner.

Body Grooming

Keeping hair growth at bay helps to maintain body hygiene, especially during summers and when the weather is humid. A body groomer provides comfortable trimming of unwanted body hair. It gets rid of hair from various body areas such as chest, armpits and legs. Designed for comfortable trimming of hair, a body groomer is best to be used on longer hair. Since it takes time to groom yourself, you should look for a body groomer that you can easily hold for longer durations. Additionally, a good body groomer is ergonomically designed to allow easy handling and usage.

Nailcare

At least once a week, dedicate 5 minutes to clip your nails. Not only your fingernails, which are quite visible but also your toenails. While cutting your nails, do not ignore the hangnails and cuticles. Using a clipper is the best way for dry cuticles. Using a file, on the other hand, can give the nails a smooth texture. The Havells NP2001 Nail Shiner can help buff away the harsh edges and get professional-looking nails every time. This tool can be used with or without a cord to file on your fingers and toes. The nail shiner comes with a micro-USB charging port that provides 60 minutes of cordless use after 180 minutes of full charge. After buffing, use the shiner to make your nails look beautiful and healthy which lasts up to 2 weeks.

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

Ancient India not only made mentions of homosexuality but accepted it as well.


The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights.
