Shopping sprees seem to be the order of the day on this auspicious day 
 
VAIBHAVI MERCHANT -CHOREOGRAPHER I don't need a particluar day to buy things as I'm a true shopaholic. Retail therapy is the best therapy . But yes, that department my mom handles and she is quite hands-on with buying the appropriate amounts of gold and silver for the occasion.

SHRIYA SARAN -ACTRESS
Our family tradition is that we buy gold on Dhanteras. It's supposed to be very lucky and the house will be full of prosperity, so we do that. We also follow a ritual where we have a small pot and we fill it with sweets. I mostly be with my family on the day .

SHALMALI KHOLGADE -SINGER
Dhanteras is a day of new beginnings.Since I am always traveling, this year, I am going to be home with my parents. I've also just moved into a new apartment so I'm going to do it up and invite my friends on this auspicious day .
NANDISH SANDHU -ACTOR
Usually I buy something in gold on Dhanteras and some gadget, if there is anything interesting.This year, I will mostly get gold coins as they are always a good investment and considered a shagun too. Also, I am planning to gift myself a new phone.

As per my family tradition, we buy some piece of jewellery -gold or silver.Mostly we buy silver coins of Lakshmi and Ganpatiji as it is considered auspicious.

AASHKA GORADIA -ACTRESS
This Dhanteras, I plan to buy lots of sweets and food and distribute to the poor who constantly pray for Lakshmi. This kind of an investment for me is going to be an incredible return. There is no better way to thank the Goddess.

KARANVIR BOHRA -ACTOR
Dhanteras was an annual ritual when we lived in a joint family. I would go with my granddad and grandma to the market and they would buy all of us some gold. Now we do the regular puja at home and go to the temple. We have been doing the same since years.

GAUTAM RODE -ACTOR
Dhanteras is usually a normal working day for me but yes, I do try to buy something for my mom as she believes that the day is auspicious. It's a day of positive energies and the start of Diwali which digs a hole in the pocket, but hopefully brings a lot of good luck.

RAGINI KHANNA -ACTRESS
We buy silver or gold on Dhanteras. There is also a ritual of decorating our home with torans. This year, I hope to buy jewellery . Diwali, on the whole, is very special to me. I feel it's a very happy time and I enjoy the colour and lighting all around.

ANUSHKA MANCHANDA -SINGER
Every year, around Dhanteras my mother buys a gold or silver coin and adds it to our collection. All the coins are brought out on Diwali at our prayer session and are part of the puja. They remind us of our journey together as a family, and reminds us to be grateful.

HONEY AND LEMON BETTER THAN OVER THE COUNTER COUGH MEDICINE, SAY EXPERTS

HONEY AND LEMON BETTER THAN OVER THE COUNTER COUGH MEDICINE, SAY EXPERTS


With the weather turning, and cough and cold infections being on the rise, people end up relying a lot on over-the-counter cough syrups and medication.However, doctors in the UK say they are of no use really . One expert even says that that there is no evidence to suggest cough medicines actually work. The British National Health Service officially recommends opting for “a homemade cough remedy containing honey and lemon.“ Honey, they state, is a demulcent, which means it coats the throat and relieves the irritation that causes coughing.On its website, it says “There's no quick way of getting rid of a cough caused by a viral infection. It will usually clear up after your immune system has fought off the virus.“ Dr Tim Ballard, Vice Chairman of a medical college, said, “Medical evidence behind cough medicines is weak and there is no evidence to say that they will reduce the duration of illnesses as such, and doctors are unlikely to prescribe them.“ He also added, “If the cough lasts longer and is affecting young infants, or is associated with coughing up blood, shortness of breath, confusion, or high fever, then they should contact doctors.“
Research released last year showed the average time for a cough to last after a virus is 18 days -with many coughs sticking around for even longer. “It's your body's way of keeping unwanted stuff from getting into your lungs. But unfortunately, post-virus, this irritating symptom can really linger.“ said Dr Ballard. However, any cough that remains for more than three weeks definitely needs to be looked at by a doctor and that here too, overthe-counter medications may not work, since cough could just be a symptom for something more than a throat infection.

WHY HITEN WILL NOT BE SEEN IN THE LAST EPISODE OF PAVITRA RISHTA

WHY HITEN WILL NOT BE SEEN IN THE LAST EPISODE OF PAVITRA RISHTA


Hiten Tejwani might have been playing Manav in Pavitra Rishta for three years now, replacing Sushant Singh Rajput in the serial. But the makers recently brought Sushant again to shoot the last episode of the show. Did the decision bother Hiten? “I was cool with it. Sushant shot just the last scene. The show is coming to an end, the souls of Manav and Archana finally meet.It was a creative call and I didn't have any problem with it. I thought it was fair enough that Sushant shot that portion,“ he says. Meanwhile, the actor, who has two films in his kitty , is also shooting for the new show, Hamari Sister Didi. “My role is different because my character is not present in the show; only his memories are alive. I speak to my family in the show; it's more like ghost appearances,“ he smiles.
