shopping fashionConsumerism is at all-time high in India, and selling like hot cakes is nothing but the idea of online shopping. The industry that is barely a few years old has emerged as one of the best options for many budding entrepreneurs for minting money.  No matter what, the consumers dwelling in the materialistic world have loved the idea of easy shopping. That’s the reason why the billions of dollars are being poured into online businesses in India, and nobody is complaining. E-stores are mushrooming to the delight of the customers.

Now, coming to the facts, online shopping in India has seen 128% growth in interest from the consumers in the year 2011 and 2012 while it was only 40% growth in 2010 to 2011. The year 2012 was actually the beginning of new era in terms of retail industry. The e-commerce industry continues to see a rise even when it faces certain roadblocks.

As the studies go, 90% of the online shoppers are planning to purchase more products online. Not that disillusioned with the delivery glitches, more and more buyers have slowly been addicted to the online shopping that also reflects their positive attitude towards e-shops.

But what exactly they prefer to buy? The popularity of e-stores shows that it’s apparels. Yes, apparels and accessories are among the top category for the buyers. 84% of the buyers are keen on shopping for these products, reveal reports. The 71% are more towards electronics. Beauty and personal care is 64%, while books are 62% and household products 61%.

The studies and reports are pointing towards a good rise in the industry. There is no doubt that online retail has been growing at an unprecedented rate. The rise of fashionistas to the advent of techie freaks, the culture of smartphones, tablets and high-street brands is catching up like wild fire. The prime reasons why the generation Y is deviating towards online shopping are the feature like cash on delivery, discount season, cool offers provided by the e-stores. The busy monotony of life has also led people to buy products online as shopping from regular malls and marketplace demands energy and much time.

As the Internet rules the roost, online shopping has turned out to be a great boon for the Indian retail industry. Being an e-shopper is thus cool.

yoga and SexualityIt can be difficult to keep a centered, grounded, spiritual outlook on life in the modern world. Holding closely to your spiritual center while living a physical life has always been complicated – there’s a reason why spiritual people have traditionally spent time in seclusion – but the deeply conflicted views of today’s society towards even the most basic facts of our humanity have a tendency to creep into our unconscious thoughts without our noticing. The natural sex drive is particularly hard hit, twisted by the dual messages surrounding us: the body is dirty and must be kept covered, yet the most valuable commodity is sex appeal. Yoga can help to bring us into alignment with a healthier, more balanced view of sex, giving us the tools we need to resist the confused messages about sexuality and sensuality we receive simply by existing in our society.

Reconnecting with our physical selves: Most people have an adversarial relationship with their body. It’s too slow, too ill, too fat, too much or too little of something; even healthy activities like exercise are usually promoted in terms of changing your body rather than embracing health. Although spirituality is sometimes seen as separate from the physical world, this is untrue, and when we disconnect from our bodies the spiritual element of our sex drive suffers. Yoga allows us to remember the ways in which our body supports us, and the sheer pleasure that can be found through inhabiting it fully.

Towards a spirituality of the physical: On a related note, yoga is inherently both a physical and a spiritual exercise, one which embodies the possibilities of a spirituality which does not reject our bodies as “less than”. For those who find themselves at a loss when trying to discover how their sex life can have a truly spiritual dimension, yoga practice can teach by example. After all, at its most basic sex is exercise with a partner, and yoga shows us how much meaning can be present in simple “exercise”.

Addressing physical issues: Modern medicine has reduced some of the stigma related to male sexual problems, but the issue still plagues many happy couples and turns spiritual moments into stressful ones. Although all men suffering from sexual problems like erectile dysfunction should speak to their doctor about conventional treatments like medication, yoga can provide a complementary boost in overcoming sexual difficulties. Relaxation of smooth muscle tissue is critical to proper functioning, but this can be interfered with by stress and anxiety; yoga can not only reduce overall anxiety levels, but also provides the tools to relax again during times of heightened stress. Of course, while medication and stress reduction can treat the symptoms, the causes of sexual issues (smoking, heart disease, high blood pressure, and more) can also be addressed through yoga, making it a truly holistic way to treat any sexual issues which may arise.

Increasing flexibility and decreasing pain levels, physically and mentally: It is difficult to open yourself to a spiritual perspective when you’re uncomfortable, in pain, or overly conscious of what you can and cannot do comfortably. As it encourages greater flexibility and may aid in controlling pain levels for those suffering from chronic conditions, yoga clears these concerns from the path towards a more spiritual sex life. In a similar vein, the self-confidence and increased self-esteem built by practicing yoga can help quiet the inner pain of wondering what we look like, if our partner really likes us, or other little voices which can draw us back to ego and away from connecting spiritually.

Holistic spirituality: When we increase our attention to spirituality in one facet of our lives, we will naturally find our spiritual outlook widening to encompass other actions and emotions. Sex, as a natural part of our lives, is not immune to this; it is difficult to find spirituality in our sex lives when we’re not spiritual at other moments, but it is likewise difficult to keep spirituality outside of the bedroom when we begin to integrate it into our worldview. The practice of yoga is one way to introduce greater levels of spiritual awareness into our day-to-day life, allowing us to fully access a life in which the sacred and the physical are truly intertwined.

YogaStatistics show that all too many people in industrialised nations are living with anxiety and depression. The World Health Organization has stated that depression was the third most important cause of the global disease burden in 2004 and anxiety disorders (including panic disorder, generalized anxiety, phobias and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) are the most common cause of mental illness. Chronic stress has been linked to depression and anxiety, as well as a plethora of physical illnesses as well, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Keeping our stress levels is down is important not only to prevent disease, but also to ensure positive outcomes when we are receiving treatment for challenging illnesses such as cancer. For this reason, enlightened members of the medical profession are constantly seeking cheap, effective ways to lower stress, without the side-effects of medication. One of the most promising practices they have come across, whose benefits have been documented in a host of scientific studies over the past decade, is yoga.

  • Yoga boosts memory and concentration: A fascinating study carried out by scientists at Wayne State University in Detroit, found that just one session of hatha yoga significantly improved subjects’ working memory and concentration, resulting in better test results.  They also found that those who had run on a treadmill in lieu of attending yoga class, did not have the same ability to focus mentally. Lead study author, Neha Gothe, notes that controlled breathing and meditation enhance concentration, keeping everyday stressful thoughts at bay. The deep state of relaxation which ensues, argues Gothe, could be the reason for improved memory and concentration.
  • Yoga battles stress: One of the most groundbreaking studies undertaken recently on the positive effect of yoga involved women receiving radiotherapy treatment for cancer. Patients recovering from cancer are faced with devastating side-effects, which normally include fatigue, stress and depression. The study showed that women who attended yoga sessions three times a week for six weeks had less fatigue and depression, lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels, and better sleep quality. It is for these same reasons that yoga is currently one of the most popular complementary treatments in top drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres around the world. Yoga helps recovering addicts gain a sense of control, and it also helps them relax, battle stress and focus on the present moment. It can be a powerful aid in recovery and can enhance their quality of life even after they have overcome addiction.
  • Yoga increases self-esteem: A study published in the International Journal of Yoga (2009) found that those who performed yoga enjoyed a greater improvement in self-esteem than those who performed other types of physical exercise.Yoga Asanas
  • Yoga improves the mood: A German study published in 2005 found that women who described themselves as ‘emotionally distressed’ saw great improvements through the regular practice of yoga. For three months the women attended two 90-minute classes every week. At the end of the study period, they had less perceived stress, depression, anxiety and fatigue. They also reported greater well-being and energy.
  • Yoga can aid those with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): A study on Australian war veterans with severe PTSD found that a combined programme of yoga asanas, controlled breathing, guided medication and information on the reduction of stress, resulted in significant improvement six weeks after the commencement of the study. Improvement was measured by the veterans’ results on the Clinician Administered PTDS Scale (CAPS), which measures the severity of PTSD symptoms. The yoga group lowered their CAPS scores from an average of 57 (moderate to severe PTSY) to 42 (mild to moderate PTSD). Interestingly, the benefits were found to persist some six months after the study had ended. A control group of veterans who had been placed on a waiting list, did not show improvements in their CAPS scores.
  • Yoga can aid those suffering from somatization disorder: Somatisation disorder is a chronic condition in which sufferers can have pain in more than one part of the body, despite no physical cause being found. A study published in January, 2014, found that yoga training for a period of 12 weeks was able to reduce somatisation in a group of healthy women. Anxiety, depression, fatigue and hostility levels were also decreased.
  • Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY) and depression: The experts at Harvard University note that Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY), which can be traced to traditional yoga and which involves cyclical breathing patterns (ranging from slow to fast), has decreased symptoms of depression in two studies thus far. In addition to battling depression, SKY has also been found to lower stress hormone levels, leading researchers to conclude that this technique could be highly useful in treating depression in those in the early stages of recovery from alcohol addiction.








isro mars missionThe Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), that got global recognition for its successful launch of a mission to Mars, will now launch German, French, British and Canadaian satellites, a top official said.

“We will be launching EnMAP (Environmental Mapping and Analysis Programme) satellite belonging to Germany. The satellite will weigh around 800 kg,” ISRO chairman K. Radhakrishnan told a news agency in an interview.

The EnMAP is a hyperspectral satellite that would provide images of the Earth at regular intervals. This apart, ISRO will be launching French satellite SPOT-7 during the first quarter of 2014, Radhakrishnan said.

“There will be four more small foreign satellites that would go along with SPOT-7,” he added.

ISRO had launched the SPOT-6 satellite in 2012.

Radhakrishnan said discussions were held with British agencies for launching three satellites each weighing around 300 kg and also to launch a set of Canadian satellites. The idea is to have at least one commercial launch every year using the Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), the ISRO chairman said.

According to him, the PSLV rocket’s reliability has been underlined once again with the launch of Mars Orbiter in a precise manner despite the challenges.

Queried about the status of Mars Orbiter, he said: “The Orbiter has been raised to around 193,000 km apogee (farthest point from Earth). We are all gearing up for the dawn of Dec 1 when the Orbiter will be injected in trans-Martian orbit.”

ISRO has been switching on the various systems and payloads of the Orbiter to check their functionalities and health. Read more
