Traditionally, the orthodontic procedure that seeks to “correct” crooked, overlapping, crowded, and gapped teeth has relied on metal braces. The image of a wired-teethed teenager being a regular occurrence in the popular imagination is proof of this. The reality, however, is the problem of misaligned or crooked teeth is not limited to teenagers.

If left untreated, misalignment of teeth does not straighten out naturally with time. This means that teens with malocclusion grow up to be young adults and adults with malocclusion. Further, the lack of adequate awareness — which in turn can be traced to a lack of adequate representation in popular culture — that post-teens can also access orthodontic treatment makes it less likely for individuals to seek teeth straightening services as they grow older.

Why? Because the prospect of wearing metal braces that loudly announce that a person is undergoing orthodontic treatment every time they smile acts as a major deterrent for adults and young adults who need smile makeover services. The entry of advanced dental players and orthodontic products such as clear aligners is changing this dynamic.

Benefits of modern smile makeover services:

Clear aligners consist of a custom-made framework that snugly fits over the teeth of an individual and works by exerting gentle pressure to push the teeth into the desired alignment. As the name indicates, Clear aligners, are made up of materials that are comfortable and do not create any irritation in the consumer’s mouth, including lips and gums. Moreover, they do not break easily, thereby preventing users from facing emergency inconvenience where they may need to get it replaced.

In both cases, beneficiaries have the power over whether or when they want to reveal they are undergoing orthodontic treatment. The near-invisible quality of clear aligners ensures that socially active people, including those in the corporates and the glamour industry, can go about their usual lifestyle without worrying about the appendages conspicuously affecting their appearance. Clear aligners also offer the advantage of being a flexible, pain-free, tasteless, stainless, and stylish alternative to metal braces.

Modern smile makeover services can also bolster India’s dental and medical tourism landscape. Since the adoption of clear aligners does not require regular follow-ups in the clinic, people from across the world can come to India and get aligners at cheaper rates, and connect with the orthodontists digitally for remote consultations.

Buoyed by strong word-of-mouth referrals and advocacy by satisfied customers, clear aligners are finding widespread adoption among the aspirational young adult Indian population. The clear aligners market is on a high-growth trajectory, not just in India but across the globe. The global clear aligners market is projected to grow with a CAGR of 10.8 percent to reach USD 6, 047.8 million by 2025. (IANS/SP)

A match underway

The sporting industry thrives on the success of the patron teams, or at least, teams that the people love. It is common knowledge how much time and energy people are willing to spend watching matches between their favourite team and its rival. Matches that take place across the world, in different time zones, do not matter much when it comes to expressing patronage for a star player or team. Late nights, crowded sitting rooms, and rain-checked appointments are absolutely welcome during match season.

Cricket has gained the world's love when it comes to making them stop everything and stare at a screen, awaiting the next run, boundary, or wicket. No other sport across the world receives as much love and undying allegiance. In this scenario, it is only natural to have an entire system in place that makes use of this immense love for the sport. Creating leagues that run annually, and pit one team against another, to measure prowess, skill, and popularity does not seem odd at all. In fact, it pumps the adrenaline more than ever, and receives an incredible amount of support. People will do anything to watch their team in action one more time.

The film closely follows the story of Satyavadi Raja Harishchandra

Cinema and movie making is constantly changing, and the result is in front of us we've come a long way from silent black and white short movies to high definition, colour, 5-D movies. It has evolved for the last 108 years and continues to grow. India's first auteur-filmmaker Dhundiraj Govind Phalke popularly known as Dadasahen Phalke directed and produced India's first feature film Raja Harishchandra which was a hundred per cent made by the Indian crew. The movie was released in Bombay's (Mumbai) Coronation Theatre on the 3rd of May 1913 under the label of being India's first home production, full-length film.

Raja Harishchandra was the first to be 'acted, directed and produced by an all-Indian team. Phalke's inspiration to make a "Swadeshi" movie comes from when he viewed the silent movie, "The Life of Christ" in 1911. He wrote in Navayug, November 1917 that While the Life of Christ was rolling fast before my physical eyes, I was mentally visualizing the gods, Shri Krishna, Shri Ramachandra, their Gokul and Ayodhya… He wanted to feel the connection with the movies but that connection failed to form as the context of the movie was foreign.
