The Art of walking Confidently

One needs to pass a confident vibration under a myriad of circumstances. Being confident while walking is a key. So, if you find yourself walking home from the pub in the dark, or running through the woods on the weekend, walk with your head up and shoulders back. Make reliable eye contact with people you pass, instead of looking at your phone or at the ground. Give a positive vibration and do not look vulnerable. You'll feel and look more confident- this will give the attacker an idea that you are well equipped with the resources for your safety and this will change how a potential attacker sees you. It also lets potential attackers know you could identify them easily. It will also be best that you will invest in weapons for self defense. In this way, you will feel more safe and secure wherever you go. One good weapon for you to invest in is a rifle plates.

It is good to avoid confrontation as much as possible. Try to defuse a situation before it gets too dangerous. If you can sense a situation is about to get heated, try talking the person down. If there's something they want- money, your phone- hand it over. Nothing you own is worth more than your safety. But, if an attacker touches you (or it's clear that escape isn't possible), shout too loudly: “BACK OFF!" or “DON'T TOUCH ME!" This does two things: it signals for help, and lets the attacker see you're not an easy target. (IANS)

Safety-pins with charms

For all the great inventions that we have at hand, it is amazing how we keep going back to the safety pin every single time to fix everything. Be it tears in our clothes, to fix our broken things, to clean our teeth and nails when toothpicks are unavailable, to accessorize our clothes, and of course, as an integral part of the Indian saree. Safety pins are a must-have in our homes. But how did they come about at all?

The safety pin was invented at a time when brooches existed. They were used by the Greeks and Romans quite extensively. A man named Walter Hunt picked up a piece of brass and coiled it into the safety pin we know today. He did it just to pay off his debt. He even sold the patent rights of this seemingly insignificant invention just so that his debtors would leave him alone.

Sesame oil bath is also called ennai kuliyal in Tamil

In South India, Deepavali marks the end of the monsoon and heralds the start of winter. The festival is usually observed in the weeks following heavy rain, and just before the first cold spell in the peninsula. The light and laughter that comes with the almost week-long celebration are certainly warm to the bones, but there is still a tradition that the South Indians follow to ease their transition from humidity to the cold.

Just before the main festival, the family bathes in sesame oil. This tradition is called 'yellu yennai snaana' in Kannada, or 'ennai kuliyal' in Tamil, which translates to 'sesame oil bath'. The eldest member of the family applies three drops of heated oil on each member's head. They must massage this oil into their hair and body. The oil is allowed to soak in for a while, anywhere between twenty minutes to an hour. After this, they must wash with warm water before sunrise.
