Yup, Cosmetic Companies use fish scale for lipstick's shimmery look.. ..but more than Fish scales.We need to worry abt synthetic products and preservative used in cosmetics..Mostly company claim to provide organic products but they r not..there r only few envirnmentally aware companies like..Aveda,Lavera, Dr, Hauschika..but its better not to use much makeup..becoz this way we r ingesting too much toxins in our body..

It is said that in London you are never more than 10 mitres from a rat. New York must be very similar if not worse.

SSA Kudrat Ji

I’ll tell you a funny story about a rat.

When I was studying at University in Edinburgh I used to work on a pig farm during the summer holidays. In many ways it was a wonderful job because it was away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The fresh country air in Scotland is very nice. The farm was near Inverness, in fact not too far from Loch Ness, I am sure you have heard of the world famous Loch.

Anyway, another farmhand and I were given the task of cleaning out the pig pens. I will never forget that day. It was very bright and sunny. I had a pitch fork in my hand. We were just messing around having a laugh when I spotted a huge rat run across the farm yard. I don’t know why but I threw the pitch fork like a spear at the rat. As I said we were just fooling around; never did I think that I would hit the rat. Well, the pitch fork flew through the air like a javelin and speared the rat. I couldn’t believe it. Not in a million years could I do that again.

I then had the unenviable task of removing the dead rat from the end of the pitchfork. That was the last time I dealt with a rat. I was nearly sick and still get that sickly feeling when I see a rat.

Thank you for your kind words Kudrat Ji.

When I was young my father would make me copy out the whole of a story from a newspaper and he would make me tell the story in my own words. Very often I would have to write it out and he would read it and give me praise for it. I just learned to use as many different words as I possibly could to tell the same story.

Before I opted to do engineering I did toy with the idea of doing journalism but I liked engineering.

Kudrat Ji, self expression is just about painting pictures with words; a delicate form of storytelling. The one thing I find most interesting is political debate, because that is all about putting a point across in such a way that the electorate will buy it.

You mustn’t think you are not good at expressing yourself; from what I have read of your writing I can see intelligence in your words. As you know I have expressed that to you before.

One thing I will always say to any one is this; don’t ever ignore the basic rules of writing.
