  1. In his nondescript shop, Nikhil Jain is fastidiously showing attars and ouds to a Turkish couple. His father, Surendra Jain, looks at him with a smile. Nikhil is the third generation perfumer, owner of Jain Perfumers in Delhi, one of the largest producers and distributors of the highest grades of attars in the country today. © iStock(Representational Image) “There was a time when our customers, both retail and wholesale, were largely Muslims, owing to the importance of attars in their spiritual practices. Today, we get people of all faiths and nationalities to try something,” says Nikhil. The Challenges Of Making Attars & OudsSelling attar is not easy, especially given the price at which the really good ones go for. “Pure attar has a base of sandalwood oil. Making good attars without that is not possible,” he says. But, given the current regulations on sandalwood, several workarounds are needed, not because of cost, but because of availability. © Mehul Reuben Das “Because of these restrictions, we are forced to use oils from the inferior Australian and Egyptian sandalwood or other synthetically made, chemical-based oils,” says Rachit Dubey of GS Products, one of Kannauj’s leading attar and essential oil makers. The Egyptian and Australian sandalwood is almost identical to its Indian counterpart; however, the staying prowess of the essence from these attars is significantly less, he adds. © iStock(Sandalwood is heavily regulated in India, and therefore expensive. Indian exporters have to rely on inferior Australian and Egyptian sandalwood for sandalwood oil, the base of many perfumes) The other important Indian perfume is the oud or perfumes made from the oil of agarwood. The world knows it primarily as Arabic oud, but it is a misnomer. Ironically, no Arabic country has climatic conditions to sustain agar trees. It is stipulated that from 70 kg of wild Assamese agarwood, only 20 ml of oud can be extracted, making it extremely rare. © GS Products (Vats at a perfumery in Kannauj, Uttar Pradesh, where perfumes are distilled. Kannauj is home to several large perfumeries such as Rachit’s, and hundreds of micro-perfumeries.) “It is also a time consuming and ultimately an expensive process,” says Yawar al Hindi of Indicana Ouds. It means that pure Indian ouds - Assam ouds as they are known - of the highest quality are astronomically priced. Moreover, wild agar trees have been harvested rapaciously, making them a potentially threatened species. The only viable alternative is to have agar plantations. © Indicana Ouds(Naturally infected agarwood is becoming a rarity in India, since they have been harvested rapaciously.) So, what makes it so rare? The answer to that question lies in the process with which the essence is created and collected. The bark of agar trees is infested with a fungus called phialophora. As a response to it, the tree releases an enzyme which turns the bark darker in colour. Only the darker portions of the bark are then scarped and distilled to make oud. “Changing even the slightest thing in the entire process - the tree, environment in which the bark is infested, or distillation - leads to a change in the fragrance, which is usually not good news for us,” Yawar says. © iStock (Assam Ouds, which are considered the highest grade of ouds, is very expensive given how rare they have become. At auctions, pure Assam Ouds can fetch up to Rs 15,000 for as little as 10ml) Giving Indian Perfumers A Bad NameThe extremely intricate processes and high costs also mean that the market is infested with fake or impure oud or oils that are not oud at all. “It is common for sellers taking advantage of a buyer’s ignorance to pass off any good quality attar or sometimes even cheaper oils as oud. Only a handful can differentiate between highest quality oud and a fake one,” says Nikhil. © iStock Yawar believes that among many manufacturers and their suppliers, it is a norm to hasten the process, either during the infestation of the trees, the distilling, or the ageing process. “Luckily, we have been able to weed such people out,” claims Yawar. He feels that the consumers need to be more vigilant as well. © iStock While there might be a lot of misinformation around oud, once someone experiences the real oud, they can learn how to differentiate for themselves. Double Standards In The Beauty Industry?This is also what vexes most people in the industry. While the all-natural, chemical-free, organic cosmetic industry is booming, the mainstream perfume industry is still deeply entrenched in using semi-natural, and sometimes, synthetic oils. © iStock (Synthetically made attars often have a heavy, overwhelmingly musky smell, and a shorter staying power.) What does this mean for the traditional perfumers? Is large scale quality attar manufacturing, and oud distilling, on the verge of extinction? Some say not yet, while others believe that it is. © iStock (Cheaper synthetic alternatives and dubious practices by certain traders have dealt a massive blow to the perfumers of Kannauj, who have been working in perfumeries for generations.) “We have a very specific clientele in mind. We will not degrade our quality just to push higher volumes,” says Nikhil. Several industries, other than perfumeries, use attars and ouds as an ingredient. “Even if people do not buy them for their personal use as often as they used to, many brands buy our produce,” Rachit says. Indian Attars & Ouds, And The Global Perfume MarketAnd then there are exports. Even though they are not as high as they were, say, in 2010 (worth ₹ 1000 crore, wholesale), they still constitute the majority of the business. The Jains and Rachit regularly export their produce to Australia, Poland and France to well known and reputed perfumers that they didn’t wish to name due to their non-disclosure agreements. © iStock (Think of any major, luxury perfume brands in the world, and you can bet that some of their products use Indian attars and ouds as their core ingredient.) The manufacturers also have state emporiums and other smaller brand outlets to cater to. “They source it from us. Because they have the logistics and outlets in place already, they are able to get it to various places all around the world, efficiently,” says Nikhil. One such state emporium is Biswa Bangla and their collection of Chitpore Attars. Their aim is to provide a global platform to the perfumers of the Chitpore area in West Bengal. In High Demand, Domestically As Well As InternationallyNikhil believes that people have not given up on attars. “People still buy attars for their personal use, and not just foreigners. Half of my (retail) customers are Indians from the upper-middle to moderately upper class, just the clientele we had hoped for.” © iStock (Ouds will always have a dark colour and a musky note. Because it’s appearance and fragrance is easy to replicate, it is hard to differentiate between pure ouds and synthetic ones. ) Oud, however, has a different story. Not only are people being fooled into buying cheaper and inferior quality oud as the real thing, with the dwindling numbers of wild, naturally growing agar trees chances are that many people, who are paying to the tunes of tens of thousands of rupees for as little as 2.5 gm today and will not be able to get a whiff of the real thing, ever. “Yet, they are in high demand, especially in the west,” says Yawar. Given the whiff of fragrance emanating from these shops, as someone just passes by, we can imagine why. There is something about these fragrances that enchant the senses and the soul.

  2. Let’s admit it, we watch online content for many other reasons than the story and the cast. While many shows have entertained us with some of the most memorable narratives and performances, there have been some which went a step further and found a home in our hearts for terrific locations, killer dialogues and an even amazing fashion quotient. © Netflix You know how it works right? You’re intently watching the scene playing out on the screen and in comes a character dressed in the most striking attire that makes you do a double take and just like that, your entire focus shifts to how they are decked up, what they are wearing and if you’re lucky, how you can recreate the look with pieces from your own wardrobe.

Riverdale © Netflix Talk about Riverdale and miss out on Jughead’s spot-on fashion? Never!

Okay, Archie isn’t too bad either, but Jughead surely takes the trophy here. 5. Sherlock Holmes © Prime Video There is no better show to take winter-wear inspiration from than Sherlock’s style in the series. All with his overcoats, woollen scarves and winter formals, this one is for the books whether you’re in the country or abroad. 6. Stranger Things © Prime Video This 2016 release made quite a stir amongst fashion lovers by reintroducing some of the 80s staples as 21st century fashion trends.

  6. The coronavirus pandemic continues to be a major concern all over the world. While news of more good results regarding promising vaccinations are making headlines, the number of positive cases have increased once again in certain cities of India. To those who believe that the ones who have already recovered from the deadly virus are completely safe to live the rest of their lives normally, it might not be all that great… at least for now. © iStock We got in touch with Dr. Md. Shakeel, Head-Emergency & Trauma, Hiranandani Hospital who gave us some insight into what happens to a recently recovered Covid-19 patient and why some of them are being rushed back into the emergency ward. Dr. Md. Shakeel says: “A study conducted in Italy showed an overwhelming 87.4% of patients, who have recovered from COVID-19, reported persistence of at least one symptom - particularly fatigue and Dyspnoea (laboured breathing); this was reported even after two months of being discharged from the hospital.”Some of the recovered patients had returned to the hospital complaining of low oxygen saturation levels despite being admitted and treated in medical care for at least 10 days and were only discharged once they were free of all the symptoms. © iStock Dr. Shakeel adds: “These patients came back to the hospital emergency with a whole spectrum of Lung diseases – from Fibrosis (formation of hard fibrous tissues as the Lung heals from an injury) to secondary infections and Pneumonia. It was also noted that, after recovering from COVID-19, some patients came back to the hospital’s Emergency Room with reduced heart function, Heart Attack or even Stroke.”He continues: “COVID-19 is known to attack the Endothelial Cells that line the blood vessels, leading to excessive blood clotting across the body. Now that the disease has been in the country for over five months and we understand it slightly better, we need to start looking at post-COVID rehabilitation, which has become a must, especially after having dozens of patients coming back into the Emergency Room with post-COVID symptoms.” © iStock These long and short term impacts of COVID19 are called ‘Post COVID Syndrome’. This means, after the acute phase of COVID19 is over, patients come back to hospitals with symptoms such as lethargy, body aches and itchy throats even four to six weeks later. Patients are also seen to have had psychological impact of the infection, leading to Anxiety and Depression. It is of utmost importance to monitor such cases, and a proper post-discharge rehabilitation plan be put in place, to monitor the patient’s health, so timely intervention could be done. FAQs About ‘Post-Covid Syndrome’ © iStock Why Does Post-Covid Syndrome Take Place? The extent of post-COVID distress would likely depend on the extent and impact of the infection the patient suffered. Other factors such as smoking history, advanced age and comorbid conditions like Diabetes, Hypertension, Renal Disorders also come into the picture, which further reduce the immune response of patients. Do Men & Women Report Same Issues Post Discharge? Men and women report the same post-COVID issues, but the incidence of Post COVID Syndrome is seen more amongst males, than females. © iStock What Are Some Doctor-Recommended Checks That Covid Survivors Must Undergo? Daily check of oxygen saturation, it should be maintained at >94% on room air;Watch for respiratory symptoms i.e. persistence or worsening of symptoms like cough & breathlessness;Persistent rise of body temperature above 100F;Watch for signs of lethargy, drowsiness, and altered sensorium;Regular monitoring of blood sugar in known diabetic patients is needed. COVID infection (as any other infection) alters blood sugar levels of the body. Strict monitoring once in 3 days and regular consultation with your doctor is required;Regular blood pressure monitoring in known Hypertensive patients is required to avoid accelerated Hypertension-related complications. Weekly blood pressure monitoring in case of controlled Hypertension, or more frequently in case of abnormal readings is required;Follow up consultation with your doctor within 7 days of discharge;Blood investigations like CBC, CRP at first follow up, and subsequent follow ups, if advised by your physician;Repeat CT scan of chest after 3 months to look at the extent of Lung recovery post the COVID infection.What Are The Potential Dangers of Ignoring These Assessments? © iStock Patients may go into ‘Cytokine Storm’ - Immune cells flood and attack the Lungs they should actually be protecting;Blood vessels could leak, or the blood starts clotting;Blood pressure could plummet and organs could start to fail;Secondary complications are highly common in post COVID infections like Pulmonary Fibrosis, Pulmonary Embolism, Renal Failure, Liver Dysfunction, Coagulopathy (excessive bleeding or clotting), Acute Stroke, and Myocardial Infarction.~With inputs by Dr Md.

  8. What makes our job great isn’t simply the paycheck it offers. Yes, it is one of the top three factors, but it’s almost never the sole reason why our work excites us. Instead, what sets our job apart from others in our friend circle depends on the added advantages we get from being a part of an organisation we belong to. © Pexels There’s a reason why one of the top questions candidates ask their interviewers is related to ‘new work opportunities’ they are likely to get as a part of the team? Promising work opportunities and the possibility of being able to add new skills to our repertoire often tends to play a far greater role in influencing an individual’s decision to join a company. © Pexels Because while a great paycheck can only add to our bank balance, only employee-friendly policies guarantee work satisfaction and motivation or even happiness and peace of mind. But let’s be honest, all of that is easier said than done, and getting that perfect blend is mostly a far-fetched dream. So when LinkedIN asked people on Twitter what was their favourite thing about their job, it was a complete mixed bag and still relatable.

  9. The naming or rather renaming of Indian towns, cities and now states isn’t a new occurrence. In the recent past, we have seen a number of Indian cities undergo changes in their names for a number of reasons. Gurgaon became Gurugram, Bangalore became Bengaluru, Allahabad became Prayagraj - people came up with a number of justifications behind the changes, right from revamping the city’s image to others blaming Hindu nationalistic trends. © indiarailinfo Now, the most recent name to join the list may be Hyderabad, which is being called ‘Bhagyanagar’ by some political figures. Case in point, Bengaluru South MP Tejasvi Surya’s recent tweet related to his Hyderabad campaign ahead of the GHMC elections, where he addressed the locals, “Dear young people of Bhagyanagar.” Dear young people of Bhagyanagar, Join us in large numbers in launch of 'Change Hyderabad' program tomorrow at 11 am at Swami Vivekananda Institute of Technology I also look forward to engaging with you in Qutbullapur, Jubilee Hills & Madhpur-Lingampally in Hyderabad. pic.twitter.com/advsVvdfHj — Tejasvi Surya (@Tejasvi_Surya) November 22, 2020 This incident has since divided people on social media with people choosing sides on the basis of whether they welcome this renaming or not. Now, regardless of why the renaming is happening and who is authorising it, the fact of the matter is that these old places getting christened with new names is making people think it may be an attempt to rewrite India’s history with a Mughal past. Whether that's true or not is debatable, although it may be recalled that back in 2018 Yogi Adityanath too had called for this name change during his visit to Hyderabad ahead of Assembly polls.

  12. If you’ve been wondering whether your gaming PC can handle Cyberpunk 2077 then we’ve got some good news for you. While the game does look quite futuristic, it doesn’t really require a futuristic machine to run. The game has been in development for almost eight years and it has been made with keeping the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One in mind as well. In fact, ironing out stability issues is partly the reason why the game has been delayed to December 10th. © Reddit-u_Yeettdydu Having said that, the lowest common denominator here happens to be the PS4 and Xbox One consoles which means the game will also be able to run on lower-powered hardware for gaming PCs. CD Projekt Red's UK Head of Communication and Night City Wire Host Hollie Bennett announced the minimum and recommended PC specifications for the upcoming role-playing game and it looks like the developers do not want to leave anybody behind. © Reddit - u_marcclem The game will take at least 70GB of storage and we would recommend running the game on an SSD if you want faster loading times. If you are uncertain as to whether your PC will be able to play the game; here are the minimum and recommended requirements for Cyberpunk 2077 according to CD Projekt Red: MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: OS: 64-Bit Windows 7 or 64-Bit 10 DirectX Version: DirectX 12 Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K or AMD FX-8310 Memory: 8 GB RAM Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon RX 470 Storage: 70 GB HDD (SSD recommended) RECOMMENDED SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: OS: 64-Bit Windows 10 DirectX Version: DirectX 12 Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G Memory: 12 GB RAM Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon R9 Fury Storage: 70 GB SSD Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to be a large open-world game that will be fairly detailed and these requirements are quite reassuring. You will need at least an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon RX 470 which launched seven and four years ago respectively. © CD Projekt Red While these are the minimum requirements, do not expect the game to look as good as you may have seen in the previews. CD Projekt Red recommends using at least an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon R9 Fury which launched four and five years ago respectively. The case remains the same for the minimum and recommended processor to run this game as the game can run with older CPUs such as Intel Core i7-4790, Intel Core i5-3570K, AMD FX-8310, AMD Ryzen 3 3200G or above. You will definitely need the recommended specifications or better to get the best experience with the game even though the minimum requirements are quite low. If you are an RTX GPU user, you can also take advantage of ray-tracing effects and better resolutions on PC. Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to release on December 10th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Next-generation upgrades for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series are expected soon after with better optimisations for the new hardware. If you are looking to get Cyberpunk 2077 in India, we recommend getting it from GTS as you also get a free T-Shirt with every pre-order. View the full article
  13. After years of hard work and multiple delays, CD Projekt Red is finally ready to give us Cyberpunk 2077. It's coming out on December 10 and we honestly can't wait to play it. The studio has been pumping out videos leading up to the release date and they wrapped up with their final video in the Night City Wire series last night. The finale video is all about the in-game music, animation details, and most importantly, Keanu Reeves' role in the game. For those of you who don't know, Keanu Reeves is playing a role in Cyberpunk 2077 and his character is named Johnny Silverhand. Johnny is both a rockstar and an ex-military and he seems to have his own agenda in the game. His role is bigger than what we had anticipated. In fact, CD Projekt Red considers him a 'co-protagonist' as a lot of quests will revolve around this character. We highly suggest you watch the Night City Wire video to learn more about his role in the game. Long story short, it's going to be fun playing the game while having by the side for the fun ride. In addition to that, the video shows us how Cyberpunk 2077's soundtrack has numerous real bands on it. © CD Projekt Red The game has up to 150 custom tracks and the featured artists include Run The Jewels, Grimes, Nina Kraviz, Gazelle Twin, and Rat Boy. And if you are a streamer, then the game will also allow you to enable streamer mode so that all the copyrighted music will be disabled. The copyrighted tracks will be replaced with something suitable for streaming. There's a lot in store for us and now we can't wait for December 10 to be here already. We hope you are ready with your hardware to run this beast. In the meantime, you can head over here to read our full coverage on all things Cyberpunk 2077. View the full article

  17. According to a few reports, it looks like some Xiaomi and Poco phone users are facing bootup issues on their devices. The devices are showing a weird message that reads "Find device closed unexpectedly" and eventually reboots. And on top of that, this seems to be happening repeatedly, which is quite annoying, to say the least. Although the exact reason for this is unknown, some users have suggested that the glitch was caused after Airtel Thanks App got a new update. Looks like the new version of the app has some issue with MIUI's Find My Device settings. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer From what we know so far, it looks like the Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 9 Pro Max and Poco M2 Pro users are facing the issue. Xiaomi has also acknowledged the issue and said they're working with Airtel to fix the problem. However, the company did not disclose the exact reason for the current issue. "While we are working on fixing the issue with the App developer and rollout out a permanent update by early next week, we have put temporary containment measures in place, over the last 36 hours. This fix may need consumers to get their devices at a service center", Xiaomi said in an official statement. Airtel also responded with the company’s Global CIO Harmeen Mehta sharing a post on Twitter. Check it out - Some @airtelindia customers are experiencing phone crashes on MI phones. We have worked with Xaomi to find the cause & they are preparing a fix. Meanwhile we have put a small tweak in the airtel #Thanksapp to help. Please open the app once to effect new settings. #HappyDiwali2020 — Harmeen Mehta (@HarmeenM) November 14, 2020 As of now, we don't have any word on the update's rollout. We'll keep an eye on this issue and update here when we have more info. View the full article
