New Delhi April 30, 2017: Sasha Chettri, the face of Airtel 4G, is set to unveil an album titled “Ricksharani”, which is an ode to rickshaw drivers.

“I have been on a long journey in Mumbai, trying to find some peace of mind and some money. I have shifted houses, moved to various locations across the city. All through this journey, I have spent a lot of time in rickshaws. The title of my album is a tribute to all the rickshaw-walas out there, working super hard every day, keeping the city going,” she told IANS.


The album will be launched in May. Asked about the genre, she said: “They are fast paced songs… Bollywood dance music, as we call it! Get ready for some super ‘dhinchak’ dance numbers.”

Talking about her music, she said: “Watch out for my single. The video has been put together by Sachin Gupta and choreographed by Adil. It was a crazy shoot. It’s called ‘Besharam’.”

Any fond memory of an auto-rickshaw ride?

“Yes, there was this one rickshaw driver, who inspired me a lot with his story. He was 32 and positive about life. He said he’s just doing this to earn some money and he’s going to then start his own business.”

“He was so full of energy and said one thing I’ll never forget ‘Madam main apna luck na, lekar chalta hoon, apna malik apna dost hai’ meaning to say God was his friend. I was super happy when I heard that. All my experiences in Mumbai have been humbling,” said Sasha, who hails from Dehradun.

The 24-year-old has been modelling, acting and singing.

“I have been singing since I was very young. I love acting. I have always written my own music, then someone came along and decided to make me a model. I definitely enjoy doing all of these things, but if you ask me about my strengths I would say that it’s more about finding my ability to express — finding just the right medium, and that has been music forever, it makes me happy.

“I have been playing guitar since I was 13, started performing at weddings, events etc soon after,” said the “Katti Batti” actress.

Any other acting or singing projects in Bollywood?

“I am considering a film, and some singing assignments yes, but more excited about the single launch next month,” said the daughter of an ex-army officer.

She isn’t the only actress or model with an army background. Actresses Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra also have the same background. Asked about the secret, she said: “I think army kids have a lot of spunk due to their upbringing. We are also very adaptable and flexible, which is a big requirement in acting. Maybe that’s what works.” (IANS)

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.

In the era of computers and smartphones, it is hard to imagine a task that hasnt been made easier by some sort of technology. You all may know how harmful the blue light emitted by computers, smartphones, tablets, televisions, and other electronics is for your eyes. Since the inception of the pandemic, the use of these electronic devices has increased, and we all know it can have multiple undesirable effects on the eye.
Dark circles are formed mostly due to the reflection of the dark maroon underlying orbicularis oculi, a circular muscle around our eye. The dark pigmentation gives you an exhausted look which makes you seem sick or sleep-deprived. The skin around the eye is the thinnest, results in reflection of the said dark maroon underlying orbicularis oculi. The artificial light from the screen of your electronic devices causes a lot of drying, as it steals the moisture from the skin and also causes a breakdown of collagen
