A malignant growth or tumor resulting an uncontrolled division of cells.


  1. PHYSIOLOGICAL (NORMAL MECHANISM): The human body is made up of trillions of multiple types of cell which is known as basic structural unit. As every structure have its own life period up to which it lives. The cell has also the same. Therefore the nature has provided cell, the ability to divide & make its offsprings, expect of few type of cells. The cells continuously keeps on dividing & the other cells keeps on dying apoptosis (programmed cell death). This process of division & killing is regulated by certain genes & regulators. There is strict monitoring of these regulators so that the excessive cells are not formed & the excessive cells and not killed. Once there is an abnormality in the regulator the cells starts excessive division here the word cancer begins.
  2. GENETIC CHANGES: In normal cells, genes regulate growth, maturity and death of the cells. Genetic changes can occur at many levels. There could be a gain or loss of entire chromosomes or a single point mutation affecting a single DNA nucleotide.


There are 2 broad categories of genes which are affected by these change:

  • ONCOGENES: These are cancer causing genes. They may be normal genes which are expressed at inappropriately high levels in patients with cancers or they may be altered or changed normal genes due to mutation. In both cases these genes lead to cancerous changes in the tissues.
  • TUMOR SUPPRESSORGENES: These genes normally inhibit cell division & prevent survival of cells that have damaged DNA. In patients with cancer these tumor suppressor genes are often disabled. This is caused by cancer-promoting genetic changes. Typically, changes in many genes are required to transform a normal cell into a cancer cell.


There are usually two broad terms used in case of cancer:

  1. Benign
  2. Malignant

The term Benign is used in case of tumor which does not have the potential to spread or replicate so fast and does not have the ability to metastasize to the other organs. They are usually not worrisome.

The tern Malignant is used in those tumors which are relatively aggressive then benign & have the potential to replicate faster then benign & have the ability to metastasize to the other organs.

Types of cancers according to the Morbidity & Mortality


There is a big question in everyone’s mind is what causes the cancer but the answer is still unknown to the science yet certain mediators certain may be responsible which are as follows:


  • Cigarette smoking
  • Aflatoxins
  • Asbestos
  • Poly-cyclic hydrocarbons
  • Cancer chemotherapeutic drugs
  • Benzene
  • Chromium


  • Ultra-Violet rays
  • X-rays


  • RNA Virus (HIV, Human T-cell virus)
  • DNA Virus (HPV, Hepatitis B, C, HSV type II).


  • Low fiber diet
  • High fat Diet
  • Alcohol consumption

It is said that certain chronic diseases may lead to Cancer which includes:

  • Chronic varicose ulcer
  • Chronic osteomyelitis
  • Old burn scars
  • Tropical burns scars
  • Gastric ulcers
  • Gall stones
  • Crohn’s & Ulcerative colitis

What if I have a tumor? How can I know that is it benign or malignant? Do I have to wait for a Doctor to tell me?

The answer to your question is NO. You can yourself evaluate between the benign & malignant but always remember always meet a doctor for the confirm diagnosis.

Here come the difference between the clinical benign & malignant tumors:

The benign tumors are always:

  • Slow growing
  • They are mobile (can move not fixed)
  • Do not have Ulceration
  • They are soft to touch
  • Does not bleed

Where as the malignant tumors are always:

  • Rapidly growing in nature
  • They are fixed adhered to the wall
  • Shows ulceration
  • Firm to hard while touching
  • Usually bleeds on touch or otherwise

These signs can give you an idea about the severity of you disease.

What can be the symptoms?

Yes!! The symptoms can also give the hint.

The benign tumors usually are symptom less they are found on the examination usually which may include:

  • Pain at any site
  • Pressure effects
  • Compression to any nerve or vessel
  • Vague pain or complains
  • Can produce the signs of obstruction or any hormone production

A malignant tumor produces the symptoms which includes:

  • Pain at any site
  • Bleeding from any site
  • Edema formation (Swelling sign)
  • Fever
  • Infections
  • Anemia
  • Malignant Cachexia (Weakness, Loss of weight, Insomnia, Loss of Apatite & Fatigue)

How to investigate a Cancer?

There are two types of investigations done for the purpose of cancer:

  1. For the purpose of diagnosis
  2. For the purpose of spread & Mets.

Cancer investigations includes a complete history with a complete physical examination, lab reports & radiology reports.

CYTOLOGICAL EXAMINATION: The cellular study is performed where the cells are seen live under microscope their nature activity & biology gives the evidence of being cancerous or non-cancerous. The methods to take the cells are:

  • FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology)
  • Trucut biopsy
  • Core cut biopsy
  • Frozen section

SEROLOGICAL EXAMINATION: The serological study is designed to perform via blood examination where certain specific & non-specific tumor marker are detected to know about the presence of type of cancer such as:

  • CEA
  • AFP
  • HCG
  • PSA
  • Monoclonal immunoglobulins.

RADIOGRAPHIC STUDY: This is performed in a dual beneficial aspect to know the morphology of the tumor & also to know about the spread of disease beneficial in treatment & staging which includes:

  • X-ray
  • Ultrasound
  • CT-Scan
  • MRI
  • DEXA-Scan
  • Sestamibi-Scan
  • Isotope-Scan
  • PET-Scan
  • Mammography
  • HIDA-Scan

How can I prevent from being attacked from Cancer?

Cancer prevention is an important topic to be discussed the preventive measures. Certain cancers can be prevented by early detection soon when the changes are about to begin.

  • Such as PEP smear for cervical cancer
  • Mammography & breast examination
  • Testicular cancer by testis examination

Early sign or symptom of any condition discussed above if seen in any patient can prevent the person from malignancy.

Dietary factors can also prevent this condition which are:

  • Use of antioxidant fruits & vegetables
  • Sour fruits
  • Juicy fruits
  • One of the best fruit yet found is know as SOUR SOP and its leave the other name of this fruit is GAYA BANO.

How can I get treated form cancer?

There are many types of cancer treatment. The types of treatment that you have will depends upon the type of cancer you have & how advanced it is. Some people with cancer will have only 1 treatment, but most people have a combination of treatments, such as surgery with chemotherapy or radiation therapy. You may also have immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or hormone therapy.

  • Bleeding & Bruising (Thrombocytopenia)
  • Constipation
  • Delirium
  • Diarrhea

  • Nausea & Vomiting
  • Nerve Problems (Peripheral Neuropathy)
  • Pain
  • Sexual & Fertility Problems (In Both Men & Women)
  • Skin and Nail Changes
  • Sleep Problems
  • Urinary and Bladder Problems


رمضان اور سگریٹ کا روذہ

آج سے چند روز بعد سارا نظام بدل جائے گا۔دوکانوں پر چپس ‘ بسکٹ ‘ ڈبل روٹی‘ انڈے اور بوتلیں سامنے رکھی ہوں گی لیکن سگریٹ چھپا دیے جائیں گے گویا روزہ صرف سگریٹ سے ہی ٹوٹتا ہے۔سارا دن ٹی وی پر مشروبات کے فرحت بخش اشتہارات چلیں گے اورروزہ داروں کا صبر آزمائیں گے۔بڑے بڑے برینڈ اچانک اپنے اشتہارات میں عقیدت کا رنگ بھر لیں گے اور ہر چیز رمضان کا نام لے کر بیچی جائے گی۔افطاری کے قریب ٹی وی پر باتھ روم کلینر کے اشتہارات بمعہ تصویر دکھائے جائیں گے اور بار بار دکھائے جائیں گے۔رمضان کے احترام میں جگہ جگہ ’ڈیزل‘ میں پکے پکوڑوں سموسوں کی دوکانیں کھل جائیں گی ‘ مسجدیں یکدم آباد ہوجائیں گی اورگداگروں کی ٹولیاں ہر طرف گشت کریں گی۔شیطان بند اور انسان آزاد ہوجائیں گے۔دفاتر میں کام ٹھپ ہوجائے گا کیونکہ کچھ لوگوں کو یقین ہے کہ روزہ دار کا حق ہے اگر وہ روزہ رکھے توبے شک کوئی کام نہ کرے لیکن تنخواہ پوری لے۔
کچھ روز بعد ٹریفک بے ہنگم سی ہوجائے گی‘ افطار کے اوقات میں لوگ ہوا کے دوش پر اڑتے نظر آئیں گے‘ چوراہوں پر ٹریفک جام ہوجائے گی‘ سب کو صر ف ایک ہی جلدی ہوگی کہ کسی طرح گھر پہنچ کر افطاری میں شریک ہوجائیں۔پہلے یہ ہوتا تھا کہ جب کوئی کہتا تھا کہ ’میں روزے سے ہوں‘ تو بے اختیار اس کے لیے احترام کے جذبات امڈ پڑتے تھے۔ آج کل جب کوئی یہ جملہ کہتا ہے تو پتا نہیں کیوں یکدم خوف طاری ہوجاتاہے کہ موصو ف کہیں یکدم بھڑک ہی نہ جائیں۔ہمارے محلے میں ایک حاجی صاحب رہتے ہیں جو روزہ رکھ لیں تو پورے محلے کو اندازہ ہوجاتاہے کہ حاجی صاحب روزے سے ہیں ۔ حاجی صاحب کا تقاضہ ہوتا ہے کہ انہیں دوکان پر سب سے پہلے سامان دیا جائے کیونکہ ان کا روزہ ہے‘ سائیکل پر جارہے ہوں تو بیچ سڑک میں چلتے ہیں ‘ گاڑی والا ہارن دے تو گھور کر ایک ہی جواب دیتے ہیں’اوئے۔۔۔میرا روزہ ہے‘۔ لوڈشیڈنگ کی صورت میں بنیان پہن کر گھر کے صحن میں لیٹ جاتے ہیں اور سب بچوں کو حکم دیتے ہیں کہ مجھے زور زور سے پنکھا جھلو‘ میر اروزہ ہے۔مالک مکان کرایہ بھی مانگنے آئے تو یہی جواب دے کر بھگا دیتے ہیں۔
گرمی بہت ہے‘ روزے یقیناًانتہائی سخت ہوں گے‘ ایسے میں حاجی صاحب جیسے کئی لوگوں نے پہلے سے ہی کچھ ضروری انتظامات کرلیے ہیں مثلاً میرے ایک بٹ دوست نے پکا ارادہ کر لیا ہے کہ وہ سحری میں چار بڑے گلاس دہی کی لسی کے پئیں گے تاکہ سارا دن پیاس نہ لگے۔ پچھلی دفعہ بھی انہوں نے ایسا ہی کیا تھا اورایسی خماری چڑھی تھی کہ افطاری کے وقت جب انہیں نیند سے اٹھایا جاتا تو آنکھیں ملتے ہوئے اٹھتے کہ ’ایڈی جلدی دن گذر گیا؟‘‘۔بٹ صاحب افطاری میں دال چاول کا پتیلا لے کر ایک طرف بیٹھ جاتے ہیں اور اکثر تب اٹھتے ہیں جب پتیلے میں سے خود آواز آتی ہے کہ ’بٹ صاحب ہن تے مینوں چھڈ دیو‘۔ایک اور صاحب ہیں جنہیں ہر وقت یہی شبہ رہتا ہے کہ ان کا روزہ ٹوٹ گیا ہے۔روزے کی حالت میں فون کر کرکے دوستوں سے پوچھتے ہیں کہ بیگم پیاز کاٹ رہی تھی‘ آنکھ میں آنسو آگئے‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا؟ ۔۔۔ٹی وی لگایا تو اچانک ایک گانے والے چینل پر نظر پڑ گئی‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا؟۔۔۔گھرمیں بریانی پک رہی ہے‘ دیکھ کر منہ میں پانی آگیا‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا؟۔۔۔مجھے حسرت ہی رہی کہ کاش کبھی ان کے منہ سے یہ بھی سننے کو ملے کہ آج میں نے بچے سے کہہ دیا کہ باہر جاکر محلے دار سے کہہ دو میں گھر پر نہیں ہوں‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا؟۔۔۔میں نے تین سو روپے میٹر والا کپڑا بارہ سو روپے میٹر میں فروخت کیا‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا؟۔۔۔میں نے کل کے باسی سموسے پکوڑے اپنی ماسی کو دے دیے‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا۔۔۔میں نے ساری رات کنڈا لگا کر اے سی چلایا‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا؟۔۔۔میں نے صبح کی نماز میں ایک بچے کو دھکا دے کر پچھلی صف کی طرف دھکیل دیا‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا؟۔۔۔میں نے اپنے غیر مسلم ملازم کو سارا دن بھوکا پیاسارکھا‘ روزہ تو نہیں ٹوٹا۔۔۔ہوسکتا ہے ان چیزوں سے روزہ نہ ٹوٹتا ہو‘ بہرحال کسی کا دل ضرور ٹوٹ جاتاہے۔
بچپن میں مولوی صاحب ہمیں پڑھایا کرتے تھے کہ روزے کی حالت میں بھوکا پیاسا رہ کر انسا ن کو غریب کی حالت کا احساس ہوتاہے۔ لیکن ہمیں تو اپنی بھوک پیاس مار دیتی ہے کسی کی طرف خاک دھیان جانا ہے۔اصولی طور پر ماہ رمضان میں ہر گھر میں راشن کی مقدار کم ہوجانی چاہیے لیکن اس کے الٹ ہوتاہے۔آپ کبھی حساب لگا کر دیکھئے گا‘ بھوک پیاس کے اِس مہینے میں سب سے زیادہ کھایا جاتاہے۔لوگ بھوک پیاس کو برداشت کرنے کی بجائے اس کے حل ڈھونڈنے میں لگے رہتے ہیں۔پچھلے دنوں فیس بک پر ایک اشتہار دیکھا جس میں دعویٰ کیا گیاتھا کہ ایک گولی کھانے سے آپ کو سارا دن بھوک پیاس نہیں لگے گی لہذا رمضان میں یہ گولی مسلمانوں کے لیے تحفے سے کم نہیں۔ بندہ پوچھے اگر بھوک پیاس ہی نہ لگی تو روزہ کیسا؟ ؟؟ بھائی جی! روزہ رکھنا ہے‘ روزے کو شکست نہیں دینی۔۔۔
وہ لوگ جن کا حقیقی روزہ ہوگا ان کی پہچان بڑی آسان ہے۔۔۔یہ کبھی کسی سے نہیں پوچھیں گے کہ تمہارا روزہ ہے؟۔۔۔یہ تھکے ہوئے بھی نظر نہیں آئیں گے۔۔۔کسی بے روزہ دار کو کھاتے پیتے دیکھ کر اِن پر لرزہ طاری نہیں ہوگا۔۔۔نماز کی صورت میں یہ کسی کو بتائے بغیر خاموشی سے دفتر کے دوسرے کمرے میں جائیں گے اور نماز ادا کرکے واپس اپنی نشست پر آجائیں گے۔یہ گاڑی بھی بڑے سکون سے چلائیں گے ۔دورانِ ڈرائیونگ افطاری کی صورت میں گاڑی ایک طرف روکیں گے ‘ ڈیش بورڈ پر پڑی کھجور کھا کرپانی پئیں گے اور اطمینان سے دوبارہ گھر کی طرف چل پڑیں گے۔۔۔یہ سحری بھی اُتنی ہی کرتے ہیں جتنا عام دنوں میں ناشتہ کرتے ہیں۔۔۔افطاری کے وقت بھی پکوڑوں سموسوں کا انبار کھانے کی بجائے پیاس بجھائیں گے اور کچھ دیر بعد معمول کے مطابق رات کا کھانا کھائیں گے۔۔۔ان کے چہرے پر آپ کو بیزاریت کی بجائے بشاشت نظر آئے گی۔۔۔یہی وہ لوگ ہیں جو روزے رکھتے ہیں‘ بھگتاتے نہیں۔۔۔یہ سحری کھاتے نہیں کرتے ہیں۔۔۔دفتر کا کام مزید بہتر طریقے سے کرنے کی کوشش کرتے ہیں۔۔۔یہ تعداد کم ہے لیکن اتنی بھی کم نہیں۔ ان کے برعکس وہ لوگ توآپ نے دیکھے ہی ہوں گے جو سحری کے وقت پوری طرح چوکنے رہتے ہیں کہ اذان کے قریب فٹا فٹ دو تین گلاس پانی کے پی لیں اور افطاری کے وقت آستینیں چڑھا لیں۔۔۔

Being a fashion designer is not an easy task. Every profession needs hard work & dedication. Apart from that, a quality time at work is very important to achieve success. These days I am very busy & frustrated due to work. I literally shout on my employees as I am very stressed to meet the deadlines. This week is full of  very hustle bustle due to the new collection launch. What makes me even more frustrated is the lack of discipline that I currently observe at my boutique. I am very disappointed at my workers. I had no meal since morning. I do not even have a second to sit & relax. Currently nothing can please me more than a satisfying customer & a good word of mouth. I aim to work all day & night because success tastes so good. A client needs a dress which is out of the stock. I informed my staff about the demand, but still the staff has not arranged the dress. The client is coming to collect the dress in a while. I have no idea what will happen next. My staff can suspect too many emotions inside me. I am angry, I am worried, I am stressed, I am tired & a lot more. I have never been so worried in my life before. I was thinking about my boutique… It was my dream once & now it is my life. I can not let it’s image ruin. I was lost in my own thoughts when suddenly I heard the alarm ring. Getting back to my senses I realized it was just a dream & I was sleeping in my bed without any worries. I realized I am not a fashion designer. I have orders to fulfill & no requirements to meet.

I started wondering, “Does success or failure really matters when everything has to end anyway? Why is there a need to worry, even if that is for a few minutes? The role that we play in a particular situation or time, is that really our actual role?”

I do not work in reality. My reality is very different from my dream. We all play different roles in different situations. We see hundreds of dreams. We call some dreams good, some bad & sometimes we do not even remember the dreams after waking up. The weirdest thing is that we can feel in the dreams. Sometimes we wake up feeling weird about someone or something after we see a dream. But do we care about the feelings or what happened in the dream? No. Because it was just a dream & we do not have control over it. Now take a moment & think about your life. Life is also like a dream. All that has passed feels like a dream. We run behind so many things. We want fame, success, money, recognition, luxuries & many more. The cost of achieving all these things are sleepless nights, skipping family functions, lack of bonding with friends & less time spent with the loved ones. Stress & anxiety are a companions on the way. Life is exactly like the dream which is going to end anyway, no matter what we do. We get stressed over little things. Everyday is a race for something different in which we play a different role every other day, every other moment. Now if you look back at moments in the past you will feel weird for feeling so worried back in the past. You would have never worried if you knew every thing will be perfectly alright. Life is a dream where every day every moment we play a different role. We need to understand that all problems, all stress, all worries are just for a limited time. Therefore, do not occupy your mind with worries as this moment will be a dream tomorrow.

         All life is temporary. Why worry about anything that is only temporary!

We hear too much & we listen too less but we all know about the labour day. Today it is Labour Day, a day of an economic class which earns hand to mouth to meet their daily expenses. An economic class that earns hardly $2 & is the lower middle class of any economy. But is the celebration of labour day justifying the holiday granted to these people? Or do we have any other alternative? Can we think of what could be done instead? Leaving the  answering of these questions unto you, it is very important for us to know what a labour day is, where did it come from & why is it celebrated universally.

The day, 1st of May which we mark as a labour day is basically celebrated in respect of labour strike by labours of Chicago. What was that incident about? The labours of Chicago blasted a dynamite on police against their brutality towards labour class during a strike of Haymarket riot. As a consequence 8 policemen died while 8 random labours were convicted without any proof of charge. Subsequently the news got viral & all of the world’s labour class protested in favour of the rally labours who were striking for their rights. Every year on May 1st the labour continued to strike in remembrance of their community. The day was then declared as a labour day on 1891 by National Congress Party.

The purpose of labour day is to realize the hardwork of labour class & appraise their existence as an integral part of economy. Mamnoon Hussain the Presisent of Pakistan delivers in his address to the Nation news. He says, “This day symbolizes the strength & character of the Pakistani workforce & its devotion & commitment towards making our country a prosperous & progressive nation in the world.”  It is very important for all of the classes of any country to recognize the importance of labour class & appreciate their existence as a backbone to economy.

In a nutshell, the labour class of any country is as important as that “kaam wali or maasi or driver” in all the houses without whom the home cannot even think of surviving. This does not make one look lazy or irresponsible rather having a labour working side by side gives a psychological fulfillment. On this labour day instead of uploading big status on social media showing sympathies for labour, let’s thank our maasi, our rackshay wala, our sabzi wala, our pappa ka driver, our maali & all other labour that works for our ease.




As a short note: “Woman can not take a decision,  are poor managers, are too emotional drama, are excessive buyers & are too expressive… ARE ALL COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS… if you do not trust me read it & reflect.”

Duh! Women can take care of lions, cats & all pets, who is a human?
First a home which is governed by woman; mother is more productive than homes governed by fathers since woman are more concerned about quality over numbers. Recent scientific research about woman at workplace suggests, “Women at workplace are as important as men because women take care of quality at workplace resulting higher productivity & progress, reducing tension & stress at workplace. Likewise women at home have been better playing their roles being concerned about child’s health, education & security as well as making the habits of family.

Secondly, women by nature are excellent in soft skills & are compassionate towards others. Therefore, women take care of customers needs as effectively as a mother can which helps them take better decisions. As the ultimate goal of both the parties, mother & manager is to maximize shareholders wealth (family members) or satisfy the customer needs (children). Similarly, women at home take care of everyone’s needs as effectively as any manager in the organization can. Hence, a declamation which says woman are poor managers & decision makers remains an opinion and not a fact.

Thirdly, women are considered weak in emotional intelligence since they react easily bursting into tears regarding it as sign of weakness looked down for. Research on emotional intelligence as shared by Thinking Minds have revealed that emotionally intelligence is not similar to being cold & pretending like nothing happened. Rather to react in anyway which is harmless to others such as crying, undergoing some exercises, usually women choose to concentrate on work, or even listening to the one compassionately actually helps the emotional intelligence to grow & make a person stronger, habit of mothers while bringing up a child. This quality leads to better understanding of situations helping to make better decisions in future.

Fourth, women are blind after their desires of shopping, entertainment e.t.c & can not differentiate between useful & wasteful is a direct insult to the taste of woman as mothers. There is no mother who chooses a thing of waste for her children. Women are more evaluative when it comes to choosing & buying a thing for either personal or household use. She would not buy a thing that does not adds to the value of house & people of the house. Women buy too much but they buy needs is the real cause of buying because she is the one who is going to manage & direct the members of the house. She knows who needs what and how much. So be thankful to her for whatever she does for you.

Last, women are effective communicators in all forms of feminine which is misperceived as they are too expressive or bold; outspoken since the right to speak for woman is a sin or disgust. Woman can express themselves more vividly & harmlessly unless triggered to react in an unacceptable way. Woman are more direct about their feelings which does not make them any drama queen or emotional fool. Rather woman are honest with their feelings & spiritual souls. To say what you feel is actually becoming a challenge in this cold world. The solution is not to remain silent but to develop tolerance to be able to absorb what is said.

Woman is the most flexible creation of God who is capable of both what a man can & can not. Hence, woman should stop comparing themselves with men & start appreciating their existence as an independent & incomparable creation of God.

REVIEW TIME | Max Factor Max Effect Gloss Cube | Hot Aubergine | 12

Product Name: Max Factor Max Effect Gloss Cube

Number: 12

Shade: Hot Aubergine

Price: PKR.950

Ingredients: Dimethicone, Polyisobutene, Mica, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, CoperniciaCeriferaCera, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Tocopherol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Butylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Silica, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Tin Oxide, Linalool, Geraniol, [+/- CI 15850, CI 19140, CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 77499, CI 77492, CI 42090, CI 45380, CI 75470]


The shade Hot Aubergine is a brownish-maroon colour. There are 10 different shades in total. The product packaging is simple. The name clearly reflects that the packaging is transparent cube shaped which makes it easy to see the product colour inside the container. You get a doe foot applicator with a thin wand for an easy application.

The product is itself quite thick & shiny. The best thing about it is that it does not feel sticky at all, as most glosses have a sticky feeling. It has a miniature glitter in it. The glitter is not tacky, which is a plus point. The gloss is high shine. It is not highly pigmented. Even the wear time is not that great. I was highly disappointed by the wear time which has less than 2 hours. I have an oily skin & I do not expect glosses to stay long on my lips. But this was very disappointing as there was no stain, no moisture left, literally no signs of gloss after 2 hours of application.

My Rating & Recommendation: Pass (6/10)


BEAUTY – We often hear this word. We almost hear it every day.We have heard people calling different things as beautiful. Even different people are called beautiful, for their looks & qualities. But none of us has ever wondered that what does the word beauty mean?

The general definition of beauty is the combination of qualities which give pleasure to the senses & exalts the mind & spirit. Most of us only consider half of this definition which says “Beauty is the combination of qualities which give pleasure to the senses” but we neglect the remaining part of the definition which is far more important which says “that gives pleasure to the senses & exalts the mind & spirit”. But we have confined the word beauty to the physical attributes only like color, shape, appearance, etc. In reality beauty is much more than just a physical attribute as the definition itself says “it is a combination of qualities.”

Different people have different definition of the word beautiful. Some people consider rain beautiful while some consider it irritating. Some people consider babies beautiful, but for others they are annoying & messy. Some people fall for the blue eyes while others are crazy for black ones. Each & every person has a different perspective & different choice when it comes to calling something or someone beautiful. Beauty has nothing to do with physical attributes, in fact beauty is completely related to attributes that satisfy our soul. Beauty is everlasting, it is not temporary & this is the only reason for which it is called beautiful because it is not going to end. If beauty was only related to physical appearance, then how it would be everlasting & if it is going to end or change then how it is beautiful? What is unique about being beautiful? As everything is temporary, it changes. Beauty has the tendency to remain permanent. Whatever makes us feel happy remains close to heart forever. Everything is temporary except soul & the good deeds that will remain forever. Temporary things which look beautiful are juts an illusion which deceive us for a certain time period & they will vanish as the poet  John Keats said; A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.”

Many people, especially girls feel like they are not beautiful. They consider themselves inferior on the basis of their complexion, weight, figure, dressing & many other material things & physical attributes. But the truth is that a person who has a caring heart & soul is a beautiful person. The person who cares for others, love others, help others, see good in others, who can feel other people’s pain & becomes the reason of someone’s smile is a beautiful person. If you prove yourself to be an umbrella for people who are in pain, no matter what colour you are, what race you belong to, what dress you wear, what language you speak… Trust me you are the most beautiful person of this world! Shout out to all those people who have been the reason of someone’s happiness, who have helped someone, who care for other people, who try to spread happiness. Such people are more than beautiful because you have “the heart who cares!”

“What you feel is what you are,
And what you are is beautiful.”
