Everything You Need to Know About Sheetala Saptami

Sheetala Saptami is one of the most well-known Hindu festivals. Hindus observe Sheetala Saptami on (saptami) the seventh day of the month of Chaitra during Krishna Paksha which occurs seven days after Holi. This day is celebrated in honour of Goddess Shakti’s feminine power and incarnation, Goddess Sheetala who is believed to be the goddess of smallpox and other infectious diseases. People offer prayers and seek her blessings to avoid contracting diseases like chicken pox and smallpox to safeguard themselves and their families. Different cultures commemorate Sheetala Saptami (also known as Sheetala Satam in some regions and cultures) or Sheetala Ashtami (also known as Basoda in some regions and cultures), depending on whether it occurs seven days after Holi (Saptami) or eight days after Holi (Ashtami). We majorly celebrate Sheetala Saptami in Udaipur.

Significance and History of Sheetala Saptami:

Maa Sheetala, according to myth, is a manifestation of Goddess Parvati, who appeared during the Gods’ sacramental fire rite (Havan). One of the Goddess’s four hands is said to carry a dustpan, and the other is said to hold a broom, some dawning neem leaves, and a water pitcher. She travels in a mule. Although the first two depict cleanliness, the pitcher stresses the importance of clean water for all life on Earth, and neem is known for its therapeutic benefits. During the Havan, a bead of Lord Shiva’s sweat fell to the ground, and a demon known as Jwarasura (literally: Fever-demon) rose from the soil. Jwarasura is revered as the fever-deity who harmed humanity by dispersing illnesses throughout the globe. To beseech the Goddess to protect our families and ourselves from heat-related illnesses, we perform the Sheetala Saptami puja. It is widely believed that Goddess Sheetala aids in the prevention of infectious illnesses like measles, chickenpox, and smallpox.

Rituals of Sheetala Saptami:

– Devotees worship Sheetala Mata on this particular day and give prayers to her.

– Before the sun rises, people get up early and take a cold bath.

– After that, they go to the shrine of Goddess Sheetla to perform various rituals and puja and offer prayers to the deity in order to lead a happy, healthy, and peaceful life.

– The day of Sheetala Saptami is a day when devotees abstain from cooking and only consume food that has already been made the day before. On this specific day, eating hot, freshly baked food is strictly forbidden.

What Is Sheetala Saptami’s Importance?

Sheetala Saptami is an important festival in Hinduism, and holds great significance for devotees. Here are some of the reasons why this festival is considered important:

1. Worship of Goddess Sheetala: The Skanda Purana gives a detailed explanation of the significance of the Sheetala Saptami. According to the texts and Hindu mythology, Goddess Sheetala is an incarnation of Maa Parvati and Goddess Durga. The goddess Sheetala stands for nature’s ability to restore. The deity is worshipped and prayed to for protection against diseases like chicken pox and smallpox by devotees and their offspring on this auspicious day. Sheetala, when used literally, refers to cold or coolness.

2. Purification of the body and surroundings: The event also stresses the value of hygiene and cleanliness. To get rid of any bad karma and stop the spread of illness, people clean their homes and surroundings.

3. Observance of fast: Many devotees observe a fast on Sheetala Saptami to show their devotion and seek the blessings of the goddess. The fast is believed to cleanse the body and purify the mind.

4. Rituals and traditions: The “Kiriya” ritual and the offering of seven different kinds of grains and vegetables to the goddess are two rituals and customs connected to the celebration. These customs are thought to bring prosperity and shield people from illnesses.

5. Social significance: Sheetala Saptami is also an occasion for people to come together and celebrate as a community. People can show their gratitude for their blessings and deepen their bonds with friends and family during the festival.

6. Offering to Brahmins: In some regions, devotees offer food and donations to Brahmins as a part of the Sheetala Saptami celebrations.

A day of no cooking

The devotees refrain from eating any recently cooked food or hot or warm food throughout the day and don’t ignite any stoves in the kitchen.

According to the shastras (ancient principles), simple, non-spicy, cold food stored securely from the day before is advised to be consumed on this day as a digestive system relaxant. chilly is Sheetal. The Sheetala Mata vrat includes “sheetal” (cold, calming) food to soothe the stomach and provide it with simple-to-digest food.

A day before the celebration, people cooks oliya which is considered to be the most important food item and is also offered to goddess sheetala while performing the puja.

Due to the fact that Sheetala Saptami falls at the start of summer, which in many ways signifies the beginning of summer season and the change from spring to summer in a country like India, foods that are high in heat and seasonings only exacerbate bodily conditions and make digestion more challenging. People concur that basic food can be eaten for at least one day as a result and they usually eat food items like oliya, aaloo ki sabzi, panchkuta (ker sangari), puri, bhindi, and amchur.

Sheetala Saptami significance still remains strong today, as people have noticed that the belief also stays true to science.

महिला की बहू रूपी भूमिका एवं तनाव प्रबंधन: महिला दिवस

अंतर्राष्ट्रीय महिला दिवस धूमधाम से मनाया जा रहा है। महिलाओं को उनके विशेष योगदान के लिए सम्मानित भी किया जा रहा है। इस वर्ष 2023 की थीम “DigitAll- Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality” है। डिजिटल माध्यम से महिलाओं के लिए कार्य करने के कई क्षेत्र खुल गए जो किसी कारणवश घर से बाहर निकलने मैं कठिनाई महसूस करती हैं।

विभिन्न शोधों से यह प्रमाणित हो चुका है कि बुद्धि तथा अन्य विशिष्ट क्षमता के आधार पर पुरुष व महिलाओं में कोई अंतर नहीं होता है। फिर सवाल उठता है कि भारत में ही नहीं पूरे विश्व में महिलाओं को असमानता के व्यवहार का सामना क्यों करना पड़ता है। इंफोसिस की चेयर पर्सन सुधा मूर्ति की घटना का वर्णन करना यहां प्रासंगिक होगा। उन्होंने इंजीनियरिंग की डिग्री प्राप्त करने के पश्चात एक दिन टेल्को का एक विज्ञापन देखा जिसमें इंजीनियर की आवश्यकता थी किंतु केवल पुरुष उम्मीदवार ही अप्लाई कर सकते थे।

सुधा मूर्ति को इस विज्ञापन ने बहुत बेचैन कर दिया और उन्होंने निश्चय किया कि वे जमशेदजी टाटा से इस बारे में बात करेंगी। उन्होंने जमशेदजी जी टाटा को एक पोस्टकार्ड लिखा कि आपके विज्ञापन से मुझे आपत्ति है। आप की चयन प्रक्रिया योग्यता व कौशल के आधार पर होनी चाहिए, न कि जेन्डर के आधार पर। आप जैसे महान व्यक्ति ही यदि देश की आधी आबादी को मौका नहीं देंगे तो देश कैसे आगे बढ़ेगा।

पत्र जमशेदजी तक पहुंचा, सुधा मूर्ति को साक्षात्कार के लिए बुलाया गया और चयन भी हुआ। सुधा मूर्ति ने टेल्को की नौकरी स्वीकार की जबकि उनके पास यूएसए की स्कॉलरशिप हाथ में थी। आज सुधा मूर्ति महिला उत्थान के लिए पर्याप्त सक्रिय भूमिका निभा रही है।


महिला दिवस पर महिला सशक्तिकरण पर बात की जाती है ,महिला तो शक्तिमान है तभी बहुरूपी भूमिकाएं एक साथ निभा लेती हैं। आवश्यकता उसकी इस शक्ति को पहचान व सम्मान दिलाने की है, इतनी भूमिकाएं एक साथ निभाते हुए कई बार तनावग्रस्त भी हो जाती है।

हर महिला को अपने तनाव का प्रबंधन स्वयं ही करना होता है ।कुछ समय स्वयं (मी- टाइम) के लिए अवश्य निकालना चाहिए जिसमें मन को सुकून देने वाली गतिविधियों से स्वयं को तनाव मुक्त कर सके, अपनी पीड़ा, संघर्ष तथा दबी भावनाओं को मित्रों व परिवारजनों के साथ साझा कर सके वरना दमित इच्छाएं व्यक्तित्व पर कुप्रभाव डालती हैं। कुछ समय प्रकृति के साथ बिताने से भी तनाव कम होता है। पालतू पशु तनाव कम करने में अहम भूमिका निभा सकते हैं ।किसी की मदद करने या उपहार देने से भी मन को सुकून मिलता है और तनाव में कमी आती है। इसके अतिरिक्त खेल, संगीत, नृत्य, चित्रकारी, लेखन आदि हॉबी तनाव को कम करने के अच्छे माध्यम हैं।

इस प्रकार महिलाएं आगे बढ़ेंगी तो बाधाएं भी आएंगी, तनाव भी आएंगे एवं उपयुक्त तनाव प्रबंधन की मदद से साहस ,हिम्मत, उल्लास से आगे बढ़ती चली जाएगी। हर महिला को अपनी राह में आने वाली अन्य महिलाओं व मित्रों को भी आगे बढ़ाने के लिए प्रेरित करना है ।इसी तरह श्रृंखला को बढ़ाते चले जाना है तभी समाज में लैंगिक समानता की तस्वीर स्पष्ट दिखाई देने लगेगी। वैसे तो आज हर क्षेत्र में महिलाओं ने अपनी उपस्थिति दर्ज कराई है पर इनकी प्रतिशतता की दृष्टि से यह संख्या अभी भी बहुत अल्प है।

International Board of Cosmetic Dermatologist (IBCD) of United Kingdom Chaired by Dr Arvinder Singh

A New Era of Clinical Cosmetology and Aesthetics Training by getting trained as Cosmetic Dermatologist and Aesthetic Physician

As the market of clinical cosmetology and aesthetics is growing rapidly but quality training in India is lacking to match international standards. The market size of clinical cosmetology in India is shooting above billion dollars and CAGR is reported in double digits.

In the booming cosmetology industry, there is lot of scope for qualified doctors to get trained and earn lakhs of rupees per month. Unfortunately, the seats of Dermatology and Plastic Surgeries are limited and are quite expensive and one has to pay capitation fee in crores or has to get in top ranks in PG entrance exams to get the seats.

One has to understand it clearly that when someone choose Dermatology as a branch then around three years are invested along with large corpus of money. Even after investment of time and money, branch of Dermatology is primarily focused on skin diseases and cosmetology is just a small portion of it. After completing post graduation in Dermatology, one has to learn separately the field of cosmetic dermatology. Even if someone gets enrolled in Plastic Surgery, one has to choose long career of completing surgery as specialization and then opt for Plastic Surgery for specialization. Here focus is again not on cosmetology but cosmetic and aesthetic procedure forms small part of curriculum. In this way lot of energy and money is wasted to pursue this career if one wants to pursue clinical cosmetology and aesthetic medicine as a career.

Now a new era is getting started in India and Asian countries to pursue specialized courses in Cosmetic Dermatology, Clinical Cosmetology and Aesthetic Medicine as per international standards by International Board of Cosmetic Dermatologist (IBCD), London, United Kingdom. The course can be completed just in six months and one has to invest only less than 1 lakh rupees to get trained as per international standards and get board certification.

The board consists of world-renowned Dermatologists, Plastic surgeons, Aesthetic Surgeons, Cosmetic Dermatologists, Clinical Cosmetologists and Aesthetic Practitioner to provide high standards of education, training and assessment in field of Dermatology, Clinical Cosmetology and Aesthetics.

The unique pedagogy includes standardized mix of on-line, off line classrooms and extensive hands-on experience by way of flexi learning to impart best practices in field of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine.

These courses will be offered to registered medical practitioner which includes MBBS, MD, BDS, MDS, Ayush (BHMS, BAMS, BUMS). The courses will be launched shortly in month of April, 2023 and registration of courses will start in last week of February, 2023.

Why Laser Hair Removal?

Traditional hair removal is time consuming and, in many cases, frustrating. Traditional methods of hair removal like waxing, shaving and tweezing are effective for removing hair, but only temporarily. LASER hair removal is effective, efficient and provides a long-term solution for getting rid of unwanted hair. LASER hair removal can be performed on any part of the body that has unwanted hair. Summing up the benefits of laser hair removal, we can conclude that it

  • is a permanent solution to unwanted hair
  • rejuvenates you skin
  • lightens pigmented areas
  • eliminates ingrown hair
  • offers results from the very first session
  • provides more youthful appearance

Here are some salient benefits of LASER hair removal

1. LASER Hair Removal is Quick

Laser hair removal treatments are much quicker than you may expect.

2. LASER Hair Removal is Economical and Saves Money

When you get laser hair removal treatments done, you eliminate the need for endless amounts of razors, shaving cream, waxing appointments, etc. Laser hair removal is financially smarter, takes less time and will give you an overall longer lasting result.

3. Eliminate Ingrown Hairs

It is the best solution to make sure you don’t suffer from a pesky ingrown hair and risk having to have it removed. It is also a great option for people who have sensitive skin and have skin irritation after shaving or waxing.

4. Time Saving

With laser hair removal, you no longer have to spend time shaving or going to appointments to get the hair waxed. You also don’t have to worry about making mistakes and missing spots anymore. You will have clean-shaven skin.

5. Always Look Silky and Smooth

Unlike with waxing, where you have to keep hair in between sessions for proper removal, LASER Hair Removal keeps you silky and smooth.

 

Frequently Asked Questions – FAQs

  • What are the risks?

You can have laser hair removal treatment done over your lunch break, because there is no recovery time. The lasers do not remove skin, so there are very low risks.

  • Is It painful?

Laser hair removal with Soprano Titanium at Arth is painless.

  • How does the LASER remove the hair?

The lasers emit a light at a specific wavelength that will be absorbed by the pigment of the hair follicle without damaging the skin around it. The light is converted into heat energy, which then removes the hair follicle so that it will not produce more hair.

  • How many treatments are needed?

Typically, it will take six to eight treatments to achieve a full clear area, but there are certain people who only need four treatments.

  • How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Before having laser hair removal done, you should check with your doctor to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. You should limit waxing, plucking and tweezing and electrolysis for six weeks before the treatment. The laser targets the roots of the hair, which are temporarily removed when you have them waxed or plucked.

  • Recovery

For the day or two after the treatment, your skin will look and feel sunburned. Moisturizers and cool compresses can help. Over the next month, the treated hair will fall out. Make sure to wear sunscreen for the following month to prevent temporary colour changes in the skin.

How ‘Rolling Hills’ redefined new-year party scenes in Udaipur? The founder answers!

All of us just embarked on the new journey of the year 2023 with resolutions, hopes, and to-do lists for this year. While all of us have our ways of welcoming a new year, a party comprising dance and music scenes is one of the best ways to begin a year on a celebratory note. Speaking of New Year’s Eve parties, ‘Rolling Hills’ is one event most of the ‘party-holics’ in town must have heard of.

Like its last four seasons, the ‘Rolling Hills’ concluded on a grand note, setting higher benchmarks for the next edition. We had a conversation with Dushyant Periwal, the man behind the idea of ‘Rolling Hills’, for a complete insight into the journey of ‘Rolling Hills’ as a pioneer of large-scale new year parties in Udaipur.

Dushyant Periwal
Dushyant Periwal: Founder & Chairman – WDNE, Curator of Rolling Hills

How did the idea of Rolling Hills begin?

We have been organizing large-scale New Year’s parties for almost a decade now. However, in 2018, we decided to gear up by commencing a dedicated, game-changing edition of the New Year’s Eve celebration to upscale the entertainment quotient and magnitude of the event. With this thought at the core, the idea of ‘Rolling Hills’ was born in 2018, which dwelled in the city’s largest music festival. The first edition of this ‘Rolling Hills’ music festival was held successfully in 2018, and since then, it has been a ‘never-look-behind’ experience for us.

How has the journey of Rolling Hills been to date?

The entire journey of Rolling Hills, since the first edition in 2018 and the most recent one in 2022, has only been an upscaling journey, with every edition becoming bigger and better with every passing year. The most recent one was the fifth edition of Rolling Hills, and it was the biggest one to date, amassing a jam-packed house at Royal Retreat resort.

How has Rolling Hills been instrumental in changing the party scenes in Udaipur?

Not long ago, Udaipur was known as a quaint little town, with little or negligible party scenes even on grand occasions like New Year’s Eve. With the venture of Rolling Hills, WDNE has been instrumental in uplifting the benchmarks of party culture, with every edition only becoming grander than the erstwhile edition. Apart from welcoming the residents of Udaipur, Rolling Hills also caught the attention of other cities of Rajasthan and nearby states, which has only added to the scale of the event.

What was this year’s edition of Rolling Hills all about?

The last edition in 2021 was graced by the presence of renowned DJ Aqeel. However, the 2022 edition just became a scaled-up event with ten artists putting up a two-day show at the Royal Retreat Resort. The lineup included DJ Lemon, DJ Nash, DJ Cyrus, DJ Tasnneem, DJ Hashtag, DJ Candice, BhuvIn, Mihir, DJ Veeshal and DJ Shilen Sharma.

We thank all these artists, along with the public gathered, for making this two-day fest a memorable experience while looking forward to the 2023 edition.

New Pandit Fireworks: The One-Stop Shop for Your Celebration

Ever imagined yourself being a part of a celebration without the blazing fireworks in the sky? Difficult, right? As a resident of the city of lakes, we are far away from this thought. All our events and functions happen with a bash and they include the best accessory – fireworks.

The most favoured celebration devices for us are crackers. They are used in celebrations all around the world. But they are most popular in India, where they are mostly used to signify the victory of good over evil.

Via: ThoughtCo

Whether it is about Diwali in the old city, a wedding procession across the city or even India winning a match, the sky above Udaipur sparkles with fireworks. And that is what makes us different from others. We never shy away from expressing our happiness!

And talking about festivities, we end up in December. This month is all about functions and festivals. Whether it is weddings, Christmas, New Year, or family get-togethers, we find ourselves in one celebration or the other.

But it seldom happens we find the crackers we are looking for. It becomes a huge problem when we have to settle for less. Here is where New Pandit Fireworks come into the picture.

About Crackers

A cracker is a type of firework. It is made up of a tube that contains explosive material and a fuse. When lit, the fuse will burn down to the explosive material and then ignite it, causing an explosion.

Crackers have been around for centuries and have been used in many cultures to celebrate different events. The cracker is a small firework that produces a loud bang when lit and is often used as a celebratory device.

Fireworks have been around for centuries. The earliest records of fireworks date back to 7th century China, but it is believed that some cultures had fireworks before this date. Fireworks were originally used for military purposes, but they became popular for celebrations in the 17th century.

About New Pandit Fireworks

New Pandit Fireworks is a one-stop solution for all your cracker needs during the time of festivals and special occasions. They have an array of crackers, from big to small for all age groups.

Initiated by Tushar Paliwal, New Pandit Fireworks has the vision to take your celebration a notch higher. With an idea that caters to all sorts of occasions, the company offers its services directly to customers as well as event planners.

For a customer, it is a retail shop from where one can buy small sparklers to big bombs. For an event planner, it becomes a complete shop for all services that include Pyrotechnics, SFX, Stage effect and entry fireworks and so much more.

Along with these, the team of Mr Tushar Paliwal also offers other equipment like CO2 guns, blowers, CO2 jets, blasters, fireballs and others. All these services become a core component of any event.

In the event management industry, SFX (special effects) can play a key role in creating a memorable and engaging experience for attendees. For example, at a wedding, SFX might include things like pyrotechnics, confetti cannons, or other types of visual effects that help to add excitement and energy to the event. At a concert, SFX might include lighting and sound effects that help to enhance the overall performance and create a more immersive experience for the audience. In both cases, SFX can help to create a sense of drama and spectacle, and can be used to complement and enhance other elements of the event, such as music or performances. Event planners and designers often work closely with SFX professionals to create custom effects that are tailored to the specific needs and goals of each event.

We have been seeing a variety of activities that happen at any celebration that add to the visual appeal. And, believe it or not, we have become too used to such endeavours that imagining a big event without these becomes difficult.

The rising importance of fireworks

The recent era is all about creativity and we all have seen it in multiple weddings. Modern-day celebrations are about going to the extremes of uniqueness and bringing out the best result.


Being the show-stoppers of today’s weddings, birthdays, and private parties, pyrotechnics are the most popular. Even if they happen for a fraction of the time, they create a visual we can never forget. New Pandit Fireworks specialises in offering that wow factor to their special day.
Even when we speak about SFX, CO2 Blowers, colour blasters, and others, they play an equally important role.

Why choose New Pandit Fireworks?

Fireworks are a great way to add some colour, sounds and excitement to any event. Fireworks are also perfect for when you want to add some extra spice to your celebration. And New Pandit Fireworks are important because of the following reasons:

  1. The variety of crackers available for every occasion at New Pandit Fireworks is just amazing. Even if you have a small birthday get-together or a big wedding bash, you’ll find exactly what you are looking for.
