Here some spiritual guidance this Holi!

Spiritual healer Amiben Modi explains the meaning and significance of the colourful festival of Holi. She says, “Holi, the name itself, is so holy, pious. It is a day of colours and colours have tremendous powers. Just the mere sight of a palette full of colours will give you so much joy. It is a day of forgiveness and new beginnings. Colours bring you joy which heals you and makes your mind, body and spirit happy!”

Talking about the significance of colours, she says, “Each colour has its own powers and significance. Since generations, we have been using white as a sentiment of peace, pink as a symbol of love, green signifies prosperity, yellow signifies wealth and opulence like gold. Now, knowing the significance of these colours, if they’re used in spaces or worn appropriately, they certainly carry their powers and fill the person and space with their attributes.”

Holi also has a lot of Puja and rituals associated with it. “Holi marks new beginnings, end of the winters and the onset of summers. It signifies the welcoming of fruits. It is a strong Hindu belief that going around the burning Holi fire rids self of negativity, provides year-long protection against flu, against skin diseases, bad omens and if you do the Holi ‘pradakshina’ by taking your family’s name, you’re extending protection to your entire family,” she says.

Here is what Amiben suggests you do this Holi. “Holi is also a festival of ridding negativity, it is a good time to de-clutter your homes and do charity. Clear your homes of useless items to fill the homes of needy and you will receive positivity in abundance!” she says.

I want to explore all the mediums of entertainment: RJ Arjun Singh

Most people move from radio to television, but RJ Arjun is an exception. The young star, who has been part of TV shows like “Girls On Top” on MTV and “Phir Bhi Na Maane… Badtameez Dil” on Star Plus, switched his career from an actor to a RJ. He said he did it because he wanted to explore all the mediums of entertainment.

Talking about his career change, he said, “My last TV show ” Girls On Top” and first webseries “Shaadi Boys” came together. But I wanted to meet the artist within me and I also wanted people to meet the real Arjun too. People do radio and then head towards television, but I did it the other way. I want to explore all the mediums of entertainment.”

When asked what’s it like to be a RJ he said, “It is more than just talking, it’s about connecting with the listener within seconds and make sure you give them something to think about, to laugh about, cry about. It’s a beautiful way to find yourself and your own viewpoint and have people resonate with it.”

Asked for his favourite interviews with celebs, he said, “It’s definitely Imtiaz Ali and late Irrfan Khan, whose interviews I enjoyed the most. People say Shahid Kapoor is a little tough to crack on interviews but I had one of the best times with him during ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’.”

Arjun has recently done a cameo in Zee5’s webseries “Bhalla Calling Bhalla”. He signed off by saying, “Once an actor always an actor, so if any offers on the table I am on.”

After Hina Khan, Kunaal Roy Kapur and Akshay Oberoi starrer ‘Smartphone’, the channel is releasing another interesting web-series titled ‘Kasak’ on coming Friday (5 June). Bollywood actress Minissha Lamba, who is all set foray into the digital space with ‘Kasak’ feels releasing the web-series during the pandemic is a great idea to entertain the viewers.

For the uninitiated, ‘Kasak’ is roughly inspired from the life of nurse Aruna Ramchandra Shanbaug, who was in a vegetative state since she was raped in a Mumbai hospital. ‘Hate Story 4’ actress Ihana Dhillon is playing the rape victim and Minissha will be seen as her long lost friend, who files a mercy petition for her.

When quizzed is it a good decision to release ‘Kasak’ amid the nationwide lockdown? The pretty actress with sparkling smile  said,“People need entertainment at home. I think it’s great that we have content that is being released during this time. It’s possibly one huge factor that is helping families get through the lock down.”

Ullu App has seen a significant jump in traffic and it’s subscriber’s during the pandemic. We got in touch with Vibhu Agarwal, CEO, Ullu Digital, though he did not divulge exact numbers, but affirmed that the traffic had surged threefolds in a month’s time. “Post Covid 19 lockdown announcement, digital medium’s have seen a significant uptick in its consumption and Ullu too had a substantial rise in existing subscription digits,” Vibhu said.

He further added, “We are excited with such enlargements in not only viewer’s engagement but also in customer acquisitions. As an OTT platform, Ullu is happy and extremely contended to be able to entertain viewer’s during this quarantine period. With the release of our new series ‘Kasak’ we hope to continue the same.”
