Actress Lara Dutta is shooting for a project in the middle of nowhere, and being close to nature helps her ponder about life and the ever-evolving new reality.


“You learn every single day,” Lara told IANS when asked about adapting to new reality and shooting in the new normal.

“I’m on a set in the middle of nowhere in India. It’s quite rustic. It’s quite a bit of a jungle out here, but it is fantastic. I was just telling (husband) Mahesh (Bhupathi) that I got bitten on the eye by something I can’t even identify. I’ve never seen so many species of insects in life,” she added.

“So, everyday is a learning experience. It gives you perspective. Saying from an actor’s point of view, our lives are quite small, with our work and the people we know, and fans that we have. It’s easy to lose perspective sometimes. This (experience) opens you up. I’ve been spending the past month on location, literally sitting under star laden skies, which we don’t see in Mumbai, and pointing out at constellations. It is fabulous,” Lara said.
After the pandemic-induced lockdown, the actress completed shooting for the spy thriller “BellBottom” in the UK, along with Akshay Kumar, Huma Qureshi and Vaani Kapoor. Lara is currently shooting at an undisclosed project.

“Saying from an actor’s point of view, our lives are quite small, with our work and the people we know, and fans that we have. It’s easy to lose perspective sometimes,” says Lara. Pinterest

Talking about adapting to the new normal, Lara said: “It is an ongoing process. Everyone is really adapting to the new normal. I completed an entire film, and am working on a series. So, life goes on. You have to learn to function within what is now called ‘the new normal’. The children have been really adaptable. (The pandemic) has made one question your priorities in life and the things that are really important to you, which is why what we expose our children to right now, gathers even more importance than before.”

Lara feels one is always on a “learning curve”.

“I think it’s nice that you don’t lose the child inside you,” said the actress, who is associated with the ongoing “Discovery Plus The Big Learning Festival”, which aims to engage people in the right kind of information and knowledge.

The festival will end on October 11. Other celebrities associated with the fest are Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap, and Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh. (IANS)

Are we just focused on post-heart attack action? Or should we be focused more on prevention?

Many young and middle-aged people today are dying of sudden heart attacks. Studies show that cardiovascular diseases (CVD) strike Indians a decade earlier compared to their Western counterparts. Why is this happening? How can we prevent it? Are we just focused on post-heart attack action? Or should we be focused more on prevention?

Luke Coutinho, Holistic Lifestyle Coach -- Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine shares an input that could prevent heart attacks at a young age:

Cholesterol is not the culprit, inflammation is: Many people believe that high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides are the sole culprits behind their heart attacks. The main reasons behind most heart attacks are inflammation and oxidative damage in the heart, blood vessels, endothelial lining, arteries, and more. While maintaining healthy cholesterol levels is important, we cannot blame heart attacks on cholesterol levels alone. What then can you do to keep inflammation in check and your heart strong? Adopt simple lifestyle changes.

When it comes to burgers, its not just the patty that makes it all worthwhile... one can't forget the cheese or the crunchy lettuce either.

When it comes to burgers, its not just the patty that makes it all worthwhile... one can't forget the cheese or the crunchy lettuce either. In India, McDonald's ensures their burgers use the freshest produce, which means that don't use any ordinary lettuce. The iceberg variety was first introduced in India by McDonald's, as early as the 90s, at a time when not many people were familiar with lettuce and used cabbage instead. Lettuce is a key ingredient known for its crunch, its odourless and is ideal for salads, sandwiches and burgers.

The fast food giant collaborated with local Indian suppliers and pioneered the local production of iceberg lettuce in the country. Their lettuce undergoes 30 quality and food safety checks. After harvesting, the lettuce is pre-cooled to a temperate of below 40C at the farm gate to maintain its freshness. It is then transported in refrigerated vehicles to the world-class processing plant where it is shredded to a measured length and width and then washed and cleaned thoroughly before being vacuum-packed.
