Renaming of Orissa to Odisha

Orissa is now Odisha and Oriya now to Odia adding another tongue twister. a bill passed for the transformation of the name of Orissa to Odisha.

Poem - I Love You

I thought love was just a mirage of the mind,
it's an illusion, it's fake, impossible to find.
But the day I met you, I began to see,
that love is real, and exists in me.

I never really knew you
You were just another friend
But when I got to know you,
I let my heart unbend.
I couldn't help past memories
that would only make me cry
I had to forget my first love
and give love another try
So I've fallen in love with you
and I'll never let you go
I love you more than anyone
I just had to let you know
And if you ever wonder why
I don't know what I'll say
But I'll never stop loving you
each and every day
My feelings for you will never change
Just know my feelings are true
Just remember one thing
I Love You!

You will never know true happiness
until you have truly loved,
and you will never understand
what pain really is
until you have lost it.

I love you so deeply
I love you so much,
I love the sound of your voice
and the way that we touch

I love your warm smi…

Mehndi one of the best form of skin makeup in India

Mehndi is the application of Henna as a temporary form of skin decoration in South Asia, as well as by expatriate communities from these areas. Mehendi decorations became fashionable in the West in the late 1990s, where they are sometimes called henna tattoos. Henna is typically applied during special occasions like weddings and festivals. It is usually drawn on the palms and feet, where the colour will be darkest because the skin contains higher levels of keratin which binds temporarily to lawsone, the colourant of henna. Henna was originally used as a form of decoration mainly for brides.

The term henna tattoo is inaccurate because tattoos are defined as permanent surgical insertion of pigments underneath the skin, as opposed to pigments resting on the surface as is the case with mehndi

Likely due to the desire for a "tattoo-black" appearance, many people have started adding the synthetic dye PPD to henna to give it a black colour. PPD is extremely harmful to the skin and…
