4 reasons why you must join fashion and lifestyle community of Sheroes

Fashion and lifestyle are fast evolving. We are influenced by the fashion and lifestyle of various parts of the world. If we look at our food habits – we have western food for breakfast like cereals and bread. We have Indian food for lunch like roti or rice. We have Italian or Chinese for dinners like pizza or noodles.

Our dressing is a mix of the traditional and the western. We wear the casual Indian tops and western trousers or jeans for work. We wear traditional wears for weddings or family function. For parties, we wear the fashionable western gowns.fashion and lifestyle community

Inevitably, every aspect of our fashion and lifestyle is being influenced by the global trends. We need to look and behave in a certain manner so that we are accepted in our workplace and social circuits. There are certain unwritten fashion and lifestyle rules which are followed by the people of all age groups. We need to remain updated on what is the latest fashion and lifestyle quotient around the world.

Gone are the days when we could stay in the comfort zone of our friends and family.  Now we have to make presence felt in the outer world. We need to be comfortable interacting with people other than our family and friends.

We need a style guru, we need a consultant for our various needs like psychological, fashion, family matter. We need an expert to give us an opinion, if possible from more than one person, for our queries on anything and everything under the sun. Our friends may be unable to give answers to all our doubts. And we cannot fix paid appointments to get answers to all our doubts.

She became a journalist at 40, and completes more than 40 years of Journalism

Leela Menon is the Mamooty and Mohanlal of Journalism in Kerala. Even after forty years in the field of journalism, her position as the most dynamic Journalist in Kerala remains unrivalled. Twenty years back when I joined Indian Express, Kochi, for an internship, Leela Menon was working there. She was one of my inspirations to join journalism.

Leela Menon, 83, has got enthusiasm and tremendous memory that people half her age do not have. Some of her investigative reports paved the way for social changes, especially for the women. One such story she always narrates is about reporting of the prostitution happening at a village called Aruvacode. The villagers who were potters turned to prostitution when pottery business became unprofitable.

Leela Menon went to the village with photographer Jeevan Jose and made a report that gained national attention. Finally, the potters were taught to make terracotta pots. And thus the village was back to a normal village.

She wielded her pen to bring changes to the society, especially to the women. At Indian Express, the senior journalists used to advise me to write like Leela Menon. She was the yardstick.

Her wording, whether about humans or animals, was so powerful that when she wrote a report steps were taken on a war footing. Once she reported about how using elephants at a certain function was cruelty to the animal. Immediate steps were taken to ban the parading of elephants at the function again.

Leela Menon, might be a rare achiever in India, who has been working from the age of 18 in 1948 to the present date. She started her career at the Post Office and went on to become the first woman telegraphist in the post office. When a Journalist, from Indian Express, published story about the telegraphist, ‘sitting pretty at the post office’ she became interested in Journalism. After getting trained in Journalism, she became a journalist with Indian Express.

Her journalist instinct, nose for news, was so strong that sometimes she could bring out powerful, life-changing stories by just sitting in her office. She tells when she was at the desk in Delhi, Indian Express, her air hostess roommate told her that they were not allowed to marry when in service. Leela Menon interviewed some air hostesses and wrote a story that not allowing them to marry was against their fundamental right. Her story paved the way to change the law that prevented air hostess from marrying.

She was born in an aristocratic family, in a pristine village in Eranakulam district of Kerala. She was surrounded by book and the beautiful landscapes in her childhood. She married Bhaskara Menon who was very supportive of all her works.

Leela Menon is a fighter, who survived second stage cancer in the 1990’s. When I met her she was so jovial and energetic that little did I know that, at that time, she was actually a cancer survivor. She now gives counselling to cancer patients. A heart attack and facial palsy could not dampen her spirit.

She is now the Editor in Chief at Janmabhoomi.

When I tried to contact her I came to know that she is under treatment at a hospital in Kochi. Wish you, Mam, a speedy recovery.

And Happy Women’s Day.
