He has worked with a variety of media – painting in oil, acrylic and watercolour. His exhibitions throughout world have garnered rave reviews. Popular contemporary Indian artist is all set to showcase his latest creations titled 'Oneness' at the 14th Annual TD Festival of South Asia.

 

A fine arts graduate from MS University, Vadodara, Nandi, who was born and brought up in Assam, has worked as a graphic designer at an advertising agency and has assisted well-known art director Bijon Dasgupta before turning a full-time painter.

 

'Oneness', is Nandi's visual interpretation of the transcendental journey through the practice of Yoga. Caught up in isms and philosophies of every day, Nandi hopes his creation will inspire people to find the true purpose of their life.

 

"Yoga is a wonderful process, the only technique which is 5,000 years old and has the capacity to take you from small mind to the big mind. Yoga helps us to expand our individual being to infinite consciousness. The journey one can only experience through the various facets of this beautiful technique. It is like a song in silence, in celebration of our creation. In our world, uncountable lives have been living for millions of years and will continue to do so. This is an infinite cycle. Life and death are for the body, but the soul remains as is."

University of Toronto launching Sanskrit studies

University of Toronto (U of T), "one of the world's top research-intensive universities", is launching three-level Sanskrit language learning courses from September next.
 
Under the university's Department for the Study of Religion, these will be undertaken at Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced levels; with each level spread over one year. Classes are offered on the campus as well as online, with each level divided into two semesters.
 
No prior knowledge of Sanskrit is required for the first semester of Introductory course and both written and spoken language will be taught.  Courses are open both to U of T students and others. Aim is to "read Sanskrit literature with the aid of a dictionary" after the first semester of Introductory Sanskrit course. First and second semesters will work for building knowledge of Sanskrit grammar and vocabulary and each will include 11 tests and a final exam.
 
Meanwhile, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, commended the U of T for providing Sanskrit learning opportunities and urged all Canadian universities, public as well as private, to launch Sanskrit programs.
 
Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, further said that that Sanskrit, which was known as "the language of the gods", provided the theoretical foundation of ancient sciences and had a close relationship with other classical languages like Latin, Greek, French, German, etc. According to tradition, self-born God created Sanskrit, which was everlasting and divine, Zed added.
 
Instructor for the U of T Sanskrit courses is Assistant Professor Libbie (Elizabeth) Mills, a Sanskritist whose areas of interest include "Early Shaiva Tantra". James DiCenso is the Acting Chair of the Department.
 
Over 500,000 graduates of U of T, founded in 1827 and "driven to invent and innovate", are spread across 140 countries. Meric Gertler is the President, while Michael H. Wilson is the Chancellor.

Is Your Sunscreen Protecting You?

Is Your Sunscreen Protecting You?

If you're going to protect yourself from sun damage, but still spend time in the sun – not secluded all day under a pop-up tent, wide-brimmed hat, etc. – then you're going to be slathering plenty of sunscreen on your entire body. But shouldn't that sunscreen provide the protection (sun protection factor: SPF) from ultraviolet radiation it claims to provide?

According to a report from Consumer Reports, "13 of the 35 sunscreen lotions that were tested had an SPF less than 30, despite all claiming to be at least SPF 30. This included two of the 18 sprays and three of the eight face sunscreens." According to Consumer Reports, these findings mirror previous findings, suggesting many people may have been exposed to considerably more UV radiation than they thought in recent years.

As you might expect, some of the worst offenders – for example, Banana Boat Kids Tear-Free, Sting-Free Lotion and CVS brand Kids Sun Lotion each had a stated SPF of 50, but according to Consumer Reports, offered only SPF 8 protection – were quick to counter the claims - but who should we believe? Probably not the sunscreen companies who make millions from product sales.

 Remember, the best protection against UV exposure is to avoid direct sunlight for more than 10-15 minutes a day (necessary to promote vitamin D production in the body), particularly during the midday hours (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). And if you absolutely must be in the sun, don't just rely on sunscreen; wear a hat, avoid prolonged sun exposure, and wear protective clothing whenever the temperature allows. Talk to your doctor for more information.
