Has #India just beaten #China in the #Doklam #conflict?

The decision by India and China to disengage in the Doklam conflict, which has been lingering on for more than two months, is certainly India’s win over a bullying neighbour. Yet, it could be a ploy for another Chinese move in future. Why?

China’s erosion of authority

China had been telling India to withdraw its troops from Doklam before any dialogue. India had asked for withdrawal of troops on both sides. Now that China has agreed to what India had wanted, the development will be construed as China’s submission to Indian will. It is noteworthy that China tried every threat to bully India — from starting a war to sponsoring insurgency within India.

These threats make the Chinese climbdown very significant. China has been a dominant force in the Asia-Pacific region for a long time. It has often deployed its military power to achieve economic ends. But the climbdown will erode its regional supremacy.

The message that goes to smaller countries is that China might not back its threats with substantial action. While the Chinese retreat can encourage smaller countries to look it in the eye, it will also give India an aura of a regional power. Many countries used to choose China over India. But now India can get equal treatment as it pushes its ‘Act East’ policy.

China cannot live with the shame

Effectively, disengagement means China has been beaten back by India. The message that goes out to the world will hit Chinese interests badly. Disengagement will harm China’s plan to increase its economic footprint to Africa and Europe, through its ambitious One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative, and its search for military bases in far-flung areas.

So far China combined its military and economic might to achieve its global ends. The Doklam climbdown chips at its image of a powerful country. The whole affair paints China as a bully who barks but cannot bite.

China cannot live with this image downgrade. This will seriously impede its plans for global economic domination by partnering with dozens of smaller countries and then turning into mere colonies by bullying them into submission.

That’s why its Doklam climbdown can be a pretext for some more sinister act. It can choose to strike again in some other area. It can find a more strategic way of offending India. It can even devise an aggression where India becomes more vulnerable.

#Super #cool #nail #art #ideas for short #nails

Sporting a perfect manicure with immaculate nails and an eye catching design can never go out of style. Celebrities swear by this. So, no matter how stunning your outfit is, nail art can make or break your look. Although they’re a small part of our body, nails have the ability to add that extra oomph to your persona. And no, you don’t need to have insane extensions or super complex designs to get the perfect set of nails. It’s about time people realize that beautiful nail art can be achieved on short nails as well! The idea that only people with long nails can get nail art is plain stupid.

Yes, longer nails provide more surface area to the nail technicians to express their creativity and the same becomes difficult on short nails. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible! Adapting to a fast-pacedmodern lifestyle means we’re always short on time. Lesser time means less maintenance and less maintenance means short nails.

Let’s face it, who has the time to make regular trips to the nail salon in case of any emergency. Shortnails are easy to maintain, more practical when it comes to following your daily routine and as versatile as long nails.

Examine your nails

Before you head out to the nail spa, have a good look at your nails. Please don’t take badly bitten nails, destroyed cuticles or jagged nails to the salon. Before you plan anything, make sure you get a good manicure from the salon itself or a DIY can work too. Although, if you’re not a pro at filing or cutting your nails, then it’s best to rely on professionals. Next, give your nails a symmetric shape, by filing them a little. It’s also a good idea to get your cuticles pushed back, this helps in increasing surface creating more surface area especially on small nails.

What to do

There are many designs to choose from. You’re bound to go crazy and won’t be able to pick any one!

French tip manicure with a twist

Give your classic manicure a twist by adding a layer of clear glitter nail paint as a topcoat or at the tip. A French manicure looks super classy no matter how short or long the nails are. By adding a layer of glitter polish you would be adding a fresh spin to the classic.

Spongebob or Pooh?

Nostalgia can get the best of us to go looking for our special blanket and curling up on the sofa to watch our favorite cartoons. Why not relive your favorite childhood cartoons? Bring them to life by getting cute nail art of your favorite characters. These face designs look superb on short nails. You can follow the theme of your favorite show or you could get different characters on each nail.

Striped like candy

Super cute and super easy. Candy stripes are hard to mess up. You can team up colors like pale pink, powder blue, lilac, teal or a soft plum with white. The combinations are endless, you go for the one matching your vibe.

Embrace the season

Match your nails to the season. Try a season specific design, like pineapples and lemons for summer or pretty reddish brown leaves for autumn or maybe a bright floral pattern for spring. Keep the base coat white and outline the shapes in black to really bring out the design.

The new French manicure

Add yet another twist to the classic manicure by switching the tips. Instead of painting each tip a boring white, you could paint them in different shades to quirk up the classic you could even choose two different tip shades and apply them at a diagonal angle instead of stick straight. Lastly, remember to keep the base a neutral color to really bring out your nails.

Nudes and neutrals

Keeping it simple should be your mantra if you like to try out a lot of different outfits but can’t always match your nails to them. No matter what the season, fashion or mood, they go with everything. Nudes and neutrals in pinks, beige, cream or browns are the best options. You can have them in a matte or glossy finish, depending on your look.

Embellishments

Who said synthetic gemstones, rhinestones and crystals only belong on long nails? Bring the bling by trying out this look. You have 2 options to choose from-

First, if you want to go for a minimalistic look then just get some stones added to the half-moon of your cuticles. Subtle and beautiful.

Second, if you want to go crazy with super bling and sparkly nails for a special occasion then get some 3D Embellishments like rhinestone, shapes or any synthetic sparkly stones.

Keeping it classic

Want a subtle low maintenance manicure for an everyday office wear. Go for the classic red or burgundy. They’re simple but look on point! You can also go for a matte or glossy finish in this as well.

Ombre

Just like your hair, your nails too can have an ombre look. Instead of getting an ombre on every nail, go for an ombre where the deepest shade is applied to the thumb and the lightest to the pinky finger. The shades keep getting lighter as they move from the thumb to the pinky. Opt for colors like orange, blue, black-gray or pinks.

Holographic design

The super cool design can be done in a variety of colors and gives a cool sci-fi or futuristic feel to your nails. This crazy design gives an illusion of rainbows as it is extremely reflective.

Graffiti

Why restrict graffiti to the walls when your nails can be used as well. The Graffiti nail art includes specs and multicoloured hexes which make your nails look super chic. Definitely worth a try!

 Now that you know the worth and versatility of short nails, nothing should stop you from rushing to your nearest salon and trying out a new look.

Why you need to take #vitamin D #deficiency seriously

It is quite surprising that despite being a tropical country where sunlight reigns most time of the year, 70 per cent of India’s population is deficient in the sunlight vitamin, vitamin D. The sources of the vitamin are also not that meager and still an alarmingly high percentage of Indian population suffers from a lack of the vitamin. To understand what vitamin D deficiency can do to a person, we talked to Dr Ankita Mathur, who practises as a physiotherapist and clinical physiotherapist at IndoGulf Hospital and Diagnostics, Noida and is a member of Indian Association of Physiotherapist.

She started on a philosophical note because for a country born out of oral folklore tradition, the best means to explain exigencies is through an allegory. “Once, sitting on a chair from quite a long time, fixed as a log, I just remembered the movie ‘Wall E’ . A scene from the movie shows future time where human beings were shown very inactive, fatty, always sitting on a chair, and their X rays revealed very feeble skeletons. That thought took me to the whole process of bone formation,” she said.

There are important aspects that we must know about vitamin D, the vital ingredient for bone formation, such as follows.

Vitamin D deficiency means weaker bones

Ailments in the bone are a very common symptom and result of the deficiency of vitamin D. “In its active form, vitamin D helps in absorption of calcium into gut, hence making calcium available for bone mineralisation, modelling and remodelling and in various neuromuscular and cell formation processes,” said Dr Ankita.

It can also cause fatigue and muscular pain

One of the most common reasons of frequent joint pains, back pain, exhaustion and drowsiness is vitamin D deficiency. However, still most of the people do not register it. The deficiency needs to be taken seriously because in the long term, it can cause osteoporosis, obesity, cardiac disease, and even type 2 diabetes. The deficiency has many long term implications and the symptoms like fatigue and muscle pain should not be slighted off.

It can affect your children too

“A few days back, some males and females approached me complaining of generalised body pain. After assessment and some tests, we got to know they were deficient in vitamin D. Surprisingly, a few of them told me about their children having same deficiency,” said Dr Ankita. It is a fact. When a pregnant woman is vitamin D deficient, chances are high that it can get passed on to your child. In case you have had vitamin D deficiency in your pregnancy, your child must be fed milk that is fortified with vitamin D.

There are optimum sources of vitamin D

Vitamin D isn’t very hard to get. There are many sources in our diet that are abundant with the vitamin. “Why is that majority population getting this deficiency? It’s not that vitamin D sources are less. In fact, we could get it from many things provided by nature like fish, fish liver oil, egg yolk, sunlight etc. Also, it could be taken in form of medicinal supplement,” said the doctor.

Wrong lifestyle at fault?

The millennials are shying away too much from sunlight, thinks Dr Ankita. “I think we still are not aware of our wrong eating habits and lifestyles. Some researchers suggest that 5 – 30 minutes of sun exposure between 10 am to 3 pm at least twice a week to face, arms, legs and back without sunscreen usually leads to sufficient vitamin D synthesis in body,” she tells. “Are we not able to take even half hour of sunlight just twice a week out of 172 hours (7*24 hrs)? We must act accordingly lest we make the movie’s scene a reality,” she warned.
