Hairfall ? You may be eating the wrong Foods

For a girl there is one thing which makes her look even more beautiful than she already is. Its her HAIR.

Yes, you read that correctly. Forget the almond shaped eyes, the flawless skin or the luscious lips. Its the hair. Dermatologists say that they can predict how healthy a person is by just looking at their hair.

You may say that you eat a lot of food. But at times its not the quantity that matters, but the correct type of nutrients. I once did a project in school about balanced diet. It said the same thing as well : Focus on what goes in and not how much goes in.

Why does your hair start falling ? Because the body says, " I am not getting enough nutrients, so I won't supply to some part of the body." So it decides to sacrifice the least important one : HAIR

So, I've browsed through a couple of sites and found out the best ways to prevent hair fall (and it doesn't include going for hair spa).


1. CHICKEN (protein) 
This may not stop the normal, everyday hair loss, however it will help you replace the lost ones. Protein are the building blocks for hair. Vegetarians can have chickpeas (chole) or lentils.

2. STRAWBERRIES
You need vitamin C to build the proteins and strawberries are full of them. You can have other citrus fruits like sweetlimes, guavas etc.


3. ALMONDS / WALNUTS / CASHEWNUTS
My favorite. You can have these on the go. If you have any problems eating them hard, soak and have it. They contain Vitamin E and protects your hair from the UV rays.

4. BEANS / SPINACH (palak)
When you have the I-can-see-my-scalp kind of a hair loss, its quite evident that you have iron deficiency. Eat a lot of beans. It will surely help.

5. OATMEAL
Rich in iron, fibre,zinc and omega 3.

6. EGGS
Eggs have a vitamin B called biotin which strengthens hair and brittle fingernails.

7. CARROTS
Prevents hair fall, increases blood circulation, makes hair lustrous and protects hair from external damages.

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).



Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…
