It’s a ge­nius way of los­ing weight. I will be tak­ing the test to try this diet soon.

Nim­rat Kaur might be a new kid on Bol­ly­wood’s block but she proves that she has im­mense tal­ent that is wait­ing to be tapped into. Af­ter read­ing the in­ter­view with her in the last is­sue of Fri­day (‘There are days I wake up and won­der if I’m good enough’, Jan­uary 23), I am con­vinced that this ac­tor is not only tal­ented but is ex­tremely ar­tic­u­late and, most im­por­tantly, has her head on her shoul­ders.

I have now be­come a huge fan and I’m try­ing to get my hands on the new sea­son of Home­land just so that I can watch her per­for­mance.

Thank you Fri­day for giv­ing your read­ers a glimpse of the real per­son be­hind the star in each of your celebrity in­ter­views. Great job!

The Cad­bury’s ad might have given Nim­rat Kaur’s ca­reer that ini­tial boost but with The Lunch­box she proved that she is a mas­ter of her craft and is ca­pa­ble of por­tray­ing var­ied emo­tions and char­ac­ters on-screen.

I hope Nim­rat goes on to de­liver what is ex­pected of her in all her fu­ture projects and her ca­reer reaches dizzy­ing highs.

It was great to read about Mawa­heb, the Dubai-based art stu­dio that pro­vides train­ing in cre­ative and life skills to spe­cial needs adults (‘A very spe­cial tal­ent’, Jan­uary 23). The fa­cil­ity has not only given a cre­ative voice to th­ese peo­ple but also the con­fi­dence and the skills to lead in­de­pen­dent lives.

I am an oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist and I’ve come across many par­ents of dif­fer­ently abled kids who are strug­gling to lo­cate a fa­cil­ity that will teach their chil­dren not only life skills but vo­ca­tional ones so that they can go on to lead mean­ing­ful lives.

I hope the ar­ti­cle makes so­ci­ety un­der­stand we need more such state-of-the art fa­cil­i­ties and all those with spe­cial needs – adults and kids alike – are able to ben­e­fit from it. through? I won­der if lack of will power is in our ge­net­ics.

The beauty fea­ture on how or­ganic cos­metic prod­ucts are as ef­fec­tive as the so-called new age, science-driven syn­thetic prod­ucts was an in­ter­est­ing read (‘Eco beauty war­riors’, Jan­uary 23).

While por­ing over the ar­ti­cle I re­mem­bered my grand­mother who told my sis­ters and me to ap­ply co­conut cream on our body af­ter hav­ing a bath, and used it on our hair to con­di­tion it. At the time we dreaded the rou­tine as we hated the strong smell of co­conut, but now thanks to her all of us in the fam­ily have flaw­less skin and gor­geous lus­trous hair.

I’m now go­ing to look for a good-qual­ity, pure co­conut oil and make it a week­end tra­di­tion with my daugh­ter.
