Meghna Beauty Parlor Completes 40 Happy & Successful Years with Sincerity & Dedication

Hariet Tubman had once quoted “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

And a recent visit to Meghna Parlor in Green Park, Delhi made me believe in this quote from the core of my heart. Meghna Parlor recently celebrated its 40th successful anniversary and the occasion was truly grand.

Since the last 40 years, this beauty property has been serving I was fortunate enough to meet the shapers behind this prosperous venture. Meghna Beauty Parlor is a plush property that began its journey through the hands of Mr. and Mrs. Goel, two passionate dreamers who believed in the core mantra that dedication and determination can overpass anything. And their dream baby completed 40 glorious successful years with all charm and might a few days back.

I happened to be a part of the celebrations and learn a lot about this journey. Meghna Beauty Parlor named after Mr. And Mrs. Goel’S daughter Meghna, had been started 40 years back just as a small dream and an equally small set up. With only two staff as the team, Mr. And Mrs. Goel themselves, Meghna Parlor seemed a hard dream to pursue. In the words of Manish Goel, the renowned television actor, Mr. Goel’s son, Continuing Meghna Parlor was challenging but Mr. Goel had a single mantra; Never to return a single customer from the desk.” Mr. And Mrs. Goel were both the beautians, the hair stylists, the laundry staff, the cleaners at once. At present Meghna Beauty Parlor boasts of a huge team of minimum 100 staff with an elaborate setting of three spacious floors.

M

Moreover when asked about Meghna’s plans about extending franchisee into other cities, Manish Paul said that Meghna is like a baby that has been nurtured by his parents since the last 40 years and hence passing it’s legacy to somebody else’s hands would not be a wise decision.

This parlor situated in the bustling hub of Green Park has been the reason for beautifying thousands of people. Generations after generations have been their customers and the only reason for their success is the humility and dedication with which they offer their services.

Beginning from usual beauty treatments to a host of other treatments like nail studios and make up packages, Meghna believes in providing an array of services in the most affordable ranges.

We wish Meghna Parlor many more years of success just like this. May your magical hands continue beautifying people just like it has been doing since the last 40 years.

Priyanka Chopra Shares Her Insights About Empowering Women At an Interactive Session by UNICEF

I remember a very old statement remarked by an acquaintance. “Unlucky are those, whose first child is a daughter.” In a country like India where we nurture this kind of a mindset, you can expect what is actually thought about a girl child.

In the present situation of technological growth and development, we often forget how necessary women empowerment is. Still now we hear issues of marital rape, female infanticide, female abuses and suicides pertaining to dowries. Well, on one hand we have a scenario where we boast of touching the skies with our technological achievements and on the other hand we have women still struggling to make their way towards education.

UNICEF, the global Non-Profit organization, concerning this issue, organized a session in the presence of illuminating personalities. Priyanka Chopra, the goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, shared her inputs about essential it is to empower adolescent education for women in India. At present, India happens to be the home of around 243 million adolescents and each on their behalf contributes to the growth and development of the Nation.

Pic2However when we nip the bud in its growing stage itself, how can one expect the Nation to progress truly? Priyanka Chopra in her conversation remarked that how, it is the mindset of the people, that one needs to change as the initial step towards women empowerment. She referred that how women should be allowed to choose their career paths without any external forces being inflicted on her.

Pic6UNICEF Global Goodwill Ambassador, Priyanka Chopra said, “Adolescents today face a unique set of challenges. Giving them the tools to improve their lives will help create a generation of economically-independent citizens who will actively contribute to their communities. Investment in adolescents can lift millions out of poverty by creatinga constructive and skilled workforce.

unicef2“I strongly believe that our regular efforts in empowering adolescent girls will contribute to the growth of our country” she added. Focusing on the issue of child marriage, she said, “A girl who is married as a child is more likely to be out of school, experience domestic violence. She is more likely to have children when she is still a child. There are more chances of her dying due to complications during pregnancy and childbirth.”

unicef1With her srong emphasis on women empowerment, she also mentioned that she along with Bollywood, can only be the instruments of change. It is the entire society who has to take the final step collectively to make an impact on women’s education and empowerment.

With an enriching interaction with the media and a group of young boys and girls, Priyanka Chopra also shared her insights about how The Beti Bachao Beti Padhao initiative is gaining momentum response in several parts of the Nation.

The best part of IRW 17 is that every design shared a unique touch to it through the stream of thought which backs it and Clotho was not a deviation. The best part was that Clotho desired to portray the collection as an extension of the feminine identity, not as a trend but as an intrinsic characteristic of herself. Thus it amalgamates its designs with the lotus in its multiple forms, that forms a predominant part in Tribana Padma’s collection, dealing with the ‘chakras’ and the several forms of feminine mysticism.

Egyptian themes and pastels also ruled the ramp through the collection hands of Delhi based Designer- Ankur jAmun-Ra (hidden light) as the name is popularly known as was the vibrant mix of 5D Egyptian beetles as well as Egyptian Gods. Oomph and chutzspah are the features that this designer collection bestows with. With the collection, he raised the message of “Help Egypt Help an Heritage”. 

White, yellows and golden shimmers dominated the ramp with the elegant collection ‘Nazakat’ ,RIDHANSH by Sonia Gaba.

This year too Akkash Aggarwal’s show was not an exception from its thematic excellence. “Tribe Vibes Collectives”, Bohemian Self Love was the thematic innovation. The World has always identified woman as “The Second Sex” reminiscent of Simone De Beauvoir or the weaker gender. In this male dominated and women undermined opinion, Akassh K. Aggarwal’s collection pays a tribute to all those women who live their lives on their own terms, unopinionated, independent and rebellious. Pearls,  corals on embossed and 3D Metallic Gold and Silver were the show-stealers. The Show with all its well-suited demanding music and the gorgeous Swara BHaskar walking down the ramp made it an episode to remember.
