More than skin-deep
If you notice that you or any of your family members have a darker and thicker skin on the neck or other skin folds, just do not ignore as it can be a sign of things to come. Patches of dark skin around the neck may force one to cover up the neck, even in the hot season. Some think that since the neck has many folds, dirt and dust gets stuck there! This dark, leathery skin should not be brushed off as a skin imperfection. In fact, it is a skin marker associated with a tendency of weight gain (obesity), skin tags, and later in their life an increased chance of developing insulin resistance and diabetes.

Top pop

Long live the mango
A lot of nature's bounties have short, seasonal spells. Once gone, we invariably wait for a year before savouring their goodness again. Luckily, many of them can be preserved in some form or the other. It's a delight to enjoy a strawberry jam or a peach preserve, long after we have bid farewell to these luscious beauties. Raw mango is another versatile fruit which morphs into countless forms, to be preserved and enjoyed forever. Here is a Gujarati style chhunda, tangy with the kick of heeng and delicious with rice, rotis, poories, ...almost everything!

So for quite some time I was thinking of a gift that would make him happy." And the pretty girl finally decided to give a car to her father. "Post his retirement I want him to relax and sit back, so a car is definitely going to make him happy.
