4 Life Lessons to Learn from Kangana Ranaut

4 Life Lessons to Learn from Kangana Ranaut

Despite being an outsider in the industry, Kangana Ranaut has made her mark in Bollywood. The 'Queen of Bollywood' bagged the National Award in the best actress category for the third time for her double act in the commercial hit Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Ranaut is one of the highest paid actresses in India and is known for playing emotionally intense roles in films like Gangster and Woh Lamhe. But behind the fame and the glory, lies a story of struggle and constant perseverance. Kangana's rise to fame did not happen overnight, and her travails and triumphs have quite a few important lessons stored for all of us.

Here are 4 inspiring life lessons to take away from Kangana's real life story.

1. Be Yourself - 
Accept yourself and embrace the person you are. Making desperate attempts to fit in a social circle or trying to make people like you could turn depressing. Be yourself and don't compromise on your identity and be afraid to have a mind of your own. Kangana has constantly inspired us to be rebellious and to question stereotypes and sexism.

'People in the industry treated me like I didn't deserve to be spoken to and I was some unwanted object. I couldn't speak English fluently and people made fun of me for that. So dealing with rejection became a part of life...Today, when people say that I have made it and made it on my own.'

She said on an interview with Daily News and Analysis

2. Deal with your relationship problems - Stop tolerating abuse. Your partner is supposed to love and support you and not hurt you physically or emotionally. Don't be afraid of getting out of a relationship. It might be difficult and hard to deal with but it's best to get over with and start afresh. Ranaut was in a relationship with Aditya Pancholi, which turned sour after he assaulted her. Later she was also in a relationship with Adhyayan Suman and Nicholas Lafferty, an English doctor, which did not last either, but she always moved on with her head held high, personifying dignity.

3. Beat the odds - There might situations when your family does not support your career choices but don't let that stop you from going ahead with it. Believe in yourself and work hard on your goals. Kangana Ranaut inspires us to not give up easily. In spite of being an industry outsider, Ranaut made her mark with remarkable performances in Fashion, Queen, Woh Lamhe and Tanu Weds Manu. She quit pursuing medical and went for modeling instead and refused to take financial aid from her father. In short, don't give up on your dreams no matter how difficult it gets.

4. There is no end to learning - You can always continue with your interests even if you have a very busy professional life. Make time for your hobbies and interests as they expand your outlook. Ranaut learns Kathak as she enjoys dancing and considers it as a form of therapy. She also did a course on the technical aspects of filmmaking from New York Film Academy. She did not let her stardom affect her personal interests and wants to have a normal life.

'I don't want to lose my rights as a common person to learn and grow'

She said on an interview with Filmfare.

My brother is addicted of smoking and drinking. I want him to quit these addiction. What should I do know? What are the medicine that can help him to come out? Please provide me the medicine that I can give him by mixing into the food and serve to him. I want that he doesn't come to know about this as he will not take medicine. So provide me the answers accordingly.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

No one will give you those medicines because it has to be carefully monitored and the person needs to know about what he is consuming, especially antabuse for the alcoholism problem. The medicine for the cigarette smoking is also given only by prescription from a doctor who has to examine him. If you want to help him otherwise these are the things you can do: Ideally he must want to stop these habits. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If these habits have become too much then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

Hi I am not able to concentrate in My study . My mind was always going to sex. What am l do.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have to practise mind control and these thoughts are very usual in your age. Do meditation and yoga .10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

I am married for 15 years, having 13 years son. Living with my in laws. My in laws are very much abusive and intervene in every matter of us. My husband never supports me and never stop his parents to doing so. He is kind of mumma's boy. Each time after a big fight, my in laws used to go to their elder son's house, but again after few months my husband bring them back to our place and again the same things starts happening. Whenever his parents are not living with him, he doesn't live like a husband or a dad. As and when his parents are with us, at the same time he wants me to happy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It not good for you all to stay together in the same house for long for various reasons. If these in-laws are unwell and need for you to take care of them, I can understand. But if they are staying with you for convenience's sake, then it will cause you all inconvenience unnecessarily. If you can put your foot down and really make it difficult for this arrangement to go on, then maybe your hubby will find it better to let them stay in the elder brother's house. Even that is not fair to them but if they have been housing them before, they may be able to handle it better. But if he is'momma's boy' you could get some reaction from your husband that may worsen the situation. Then you have a choice between the lesser of two evils. Their presence in the house may be spoiling him and letting him act less responsibly. You know there is a good trick to employ with him but you need to have the parents out of the house to make this work. There is a little bit of mothering and fathering that goes on between husbands and wives. I am sure that if you mother him a little excessively (obviously in their absence), you could make him dependent on you instead of his mother and gradually make him lean on you for those needs and'steal' him from her! this has to be done very subtly. You may also meet with a counselor and see how it works with support from a professional and get things under control. You could also have a sensible talk with him about these problems and see if he is willing to forego his parents for the welfare of the family. Do not leave any stone unturned in your endeavours to pursue this matter until you succeed. Your request is very reasonable and so other people, other than family, will always support you.

My body development is not regular and i am facing that my memory weak. please advice.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to explain what you mean by? body development is not regular. If you think it has anything to do with memory, I will need to know what was irregular in the first place. Regarding memory you can do the following to develop it. Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night? s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.

I have been diagnosed as BIPOLAR II. I have read that BIPOLAR II is not a real disorder and is made to be a disorder in order for the pharma companies to make profit. Is it true? If I do have BIPOLAR II I have heard there is no cure for it and it is only treatable. Does that mean that lifelong I have to live with this disorder?

It means that he is possessively in love with you at the same time he wants you to know more about your past life, which is not a healthy one. I suggest you to have an open communication with him about your past life after receiving an agreement or promise from him that he would never talk or think about it in future and accept you as you are. Otherwise, it will act as a thorn between your relationship causing pain to both of you.

I am 39 years old male and have sleeping disorder (poor sleeping) * anxiety *anger *negative thoughts again and again *irritation *memory loss.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I hope you are aware that the lack of sleep alone can cause all of the other symptoms. It is also possible that these other symptoms can cause the lack of sleep too. So what to do? Meet with a counselor and sort your emotional disturbance first and see what happens. In the meantime. Follow these recommendations to get some sleep: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

I am just turned 50 year and my wife is of 43 year old. We married for the last 25 years and had active and enjoyable sex life till around 4 years ago. For the last four years my wife gradually lost interest in the act and for the two years I can say she won't have orgasms beyond couple of times. As I understood that this can be a harmonic imbalance, I tried to convince her to see the doctor, however she neither refuses outright nor express any interest in seeing the doctor. Before she gradually last interest in the act, she used to have a severe headache followed by attaining orgasm. I suppose this apart from normal hormonal changes are the reasons for near no libido. I have, with a great difficulty convinced her to see the doctor and able to take her to homiocare international, where in they promised to cure with use of long term homeopathy medicine usage. However I don't see any improvement during or after the treatment period of over year and three months. In fact I see that this problem is worsening. As I am active and felt deprived of the enjoyment, I tried to convince her to allow me to work on her to stimulate her. She is not comfortable if I tried various methods of foreplay including oral on her, however she is even more uncomfortable when I try various methods to stimulate. We are now hit the dead end. Meanwhile, due to lack of sexual enjoyment, I am restless and unable to have a good night sleep and I feel slowly effecting my overall health despite I being physically very active. I have no clue as to how to go about it. Can you please suggest how we can get back to normal situation. Every passing day, I am becoming more and more desperate and feel the need more and more. In fact she allows me to penetrate and relieve my self, despite this I am not satisfied as such I don't enjoy this one side act and looking her to be active part of this. I am feeling please help. I understand that there is a medicine which can be taken before the starting of the act to avoid headache. Please suggest.

Dear , excess sex could be the basic problem. Your wife is not interested in continuous sex and I think you compelled her to do continuous or frequent sex. That irritated her and she felt several problems and pain in those acts. It is natural that she lost her interest. You wrote that she failed to have more than two orgasm. We advise for three or four sexual intercourse in a week after the age of 30. That is because you have to take care of other aspects of life like career, stress, general health, home, children, social interactions, entertainment, hobbies etc. Your wife's condition for the time being is like disappointed sexual neuorosis. I need to talk to you more on this aspect. Please post a detailed private question to me. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, agar aisa hai ki, aap ka bachha nursery ya play group me ja raha tha, aur ab nahi jana chahta, to ye thodi serious baat hai, aap ko usse baat karke ye janana padeka ki school mai aisa kya hua jo ab nahi jana chahta. Agar wo ab tak kabhi school nahi gaya ho, to baat itni serious nahi hai. Shayad kisi ne use school ke bare me kuch galat bataya hoga. Aap please use baat kar le aur uske man mein school ke bare mein kya vichar hai jan lijiye. Phir aap ka bachha jisi bhi insan/rishtedar ko chahta ho, unke school or college padhai ke bare mein bataiye. You will have to be little tactful with your child. Don't force your child to go to school, make some stories in such a way that the child should feel like going to school on his/her own. All the best.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

This does not sound too good and she must meet a doctor and a counselor in tandem for a long time for treatment. So without wasting time do take your mom to a doctor and to a counselor for diagnosis and treatment immediately. You must make sure that she cooperates because many times they do not believe that there is something wrong and would love to quit the medication. Complying with all the medical prescriptions and working in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learning coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges your mom will face is very important. There are certain adaptations that will suit her during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime she can do certain things that will give her benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. She needs to particularly look at her levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that she may never be aware of it now. Let her talk to her parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also she will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. She must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If her motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. She must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times she will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that she can do without the medication. This will set her back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned she is forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. This condition is characterized by two extremes i.e. feeling very high and suddenly feeling very low. You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in her for a personal understanding.
