Sania says the new film moved her and made her realize that there is so much transformative power in care and the story of Dnyaneshwar Bhosale.

The past year and a half have been challenging for each one of us not only across the nation but all over the world. This time has also given a new meaning to humanity with many coming forward to help those in need on-ground and online, affirming that there truly are angels on earth. Through it all, it is our doctors, and healthcare workers who have been our pillars of support and strength, many of whom have lost their lives, leaving their loved ones and dreams behind.

Opening up about the lessons she has learnt from our doctors and healthcare workers, popular sports personality Sania Mirza shared, "While this has been a time of uncertainty, it has surely been a time of learning and reflection for me. Our doctors and healthcare workers have taught me how care is the essence of humanity, and how it will help us rise above the challenges we face. When I see their selflessness, I am reminded that in life there will be many ups and downs, but it's up to us to be brave and help those around us with love and care as we are at our best when we are giving back to others."


She added: "Even after training for years, there's a fear of the unknown before entering the court for a match and I can't imagine the strength that enabled our healthcare workers to face this pandemic head-on and be brave for all of us."

Sania Mirza recently joined the Vicks #TouchOfCare under which the brand launched a film that tells the inspiring story of the late Dnyaneshwar Bhosle and his selfless care for the children in his village.

Sania says the new film moved her and made her realize that there is so much transformative power in care and the story of Dnyaneshwar Bhosale is a representation of the selfless acts of care of each one of those we lost, and those that are fighting to keep all of us safe.

As a mother herself, touched by the courage displayed by Priyanka Bhosale to keep the Late Bhosale's #TouchOfCare alive, Sania further shares: "Seeing Priyanka Bhosale's courage, I was extremely overwhelmed and I just want to send my prayers to her and many others with healthcare workers in the family. I stand in solidarity with each of them and my heart is humbled to be part of a country that is home to these beautiful souls. The fight breathes is over but we will conquer this if we listen to the wise words of our medical workers, get vaccinated and take all the precautions to keep us and those around us safe. I want to encourage each one of you to show kindness towards our healthcare workers and doctors and keep their touch of care alive in whatever way we can." (IANS/AD)

According to him Amitabh Bachchan is a great actor in the industry.

Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan shares how he feels when people compare him with his father Amitabh Bachchan on the singing reality show 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa'. He also requests contestant Rajshree Bag to sing a track 'Bahon Mein Chale Aao' featuring his mother Jaya Bachchan.

Abhishek said after looking at the performance of Rajshree, who is often compared with Lata Mangeshkar on the show, that she reminds him of being compared with his father. "Rajshree, whenever I have got the chance to watch the show, I've seen people compare you to Lata didi. It actually reminded me about how people compare me with my father and ask me how I feel about it."

According to him Amitabh Bachchan is a great actor in the industry and this is what he says to everyone making these comparisons. "My answer to them is that there's no greater actor in this film industry than Amitabh Bachchan and if I'm being compared to him, I am sure I must have done something good."

"Similarly, your voice has a different kind of magic like Lata ji and that's why people are comparing your voice with her. I feel you should always take this as a compliment," he concluded. 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' airs on Saturday and Sunday on Zee TV. (IANS/ MBI)

Winters in India have always beckoned for that hot, steaming bowl of tomato and pepper rasam or the mellow, millet based Raab.

Winters in India have always beckoned for that hot, steaming bowl of tomato and pepper rasam or the mellow, millet based Raab. Certain dishes like sarson ka saag, undhiyu, nimona pulao are winter specialites in the country. Seasonal food has always been an Indian speciality -- we switch our choice in fruits, vegetables, sometimes even grains with the onset of different season. The preference of using specific ingredients during certain climates is visible in our sweets as well. It's common to find local and traditional delicacies made of jaggery, instead of sugar during the winters. Case in point -- the Nolen Gur Rasgulla, a speciality made in Odisha and West Bengal between November to February.

Just three minutes of exposure to deep red light once a week, when delivered in the morning, can significantly improve declining eyesight, finds a new study.

Just three minutes of exposure to deep red light once a week, when delivered in the morning, can significantly improve declining eyesight, finds a new study. The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, found there was, on average, a 17 per cent improvement in participants' colour contrast vision when exposed to three minutes of 670 nanometre (long wavelength) deep red light in the morning and the effects of this single exposure lasted for at least a week.

However, when the same test was conducted in the afternoon, no improvement was seen. "We demonstrate that one single exposure to long wave deep red light in the morning can significantly improve declining vision, which is a major health and wellbeing issue, affecting millions of people globally," said lead author, Glen Jeffery from the University College London.
