Miss Himachal 2015: Grand Finale

This is regarding Himachal This Week’s cover story of February 7, “Miss Himachal 2015: Grand Finale.” The finalists had worked hard besides honing their talent to perform well and win Miss Himachal title. It is true that only three Himachali young ladies will grab top three positions but all the finalists are already winners. Kudos to parents of contestants of the grand finale because they have not only backed but also encouraged and supported their daughters to reach such a platform. It shows that Himachali parents have faith in their children and allow them to choose a career of their own liking rather than imposing wishes and preferences on them.

Yoga in Life

A recent survey has revealed that chances of heart attack in persons practicing yoga decreases. It also helps in solving physical and mental problems and those practicing yoga regularly have improved physical and mental fitness levels. Despite all these benefits, we have not been able to make yoga a habit in our life. Ironically we are ignoring our ancient knowledge whereas it is gaining popularity in western countries. The United Nations has announced to observe June 21 as international Yoga Day keeping in view its importance in daily life. Parents should also awaken their children about importance and benefits of practicing yoga in daily life.
