9 Pioneering Women in the Creative Field

Ambitious women shine despite being hidden in the shadows

Women are stereotypically considered to be creative. Despite this attribute, 100 years ago a woman trying to make it into any such creative industry was frowned down upon. It was not just a glass door but an iron one with blots on the inside. Nonetheless there were a few women, some who were acknowledged and some shadowed by men, who broke through and sent a cold shiver behind a chauvinist’s back.

 

This is a list of 9 Women in the Creative Industry who were first in their respective fields.

Lost in the Louvre: Napoleon III Apartments

Explore perhaps the Most Opulent Apartments in the City of Lights

Paris, the city of Lights and Love is irresistible with its Iron Beauty, croissants, chocolats, patisseries and of course the inevitable Parisian charm.

It is on everyone’s bucket list to visit Paris and soak in its vivacious air, and its leisure breeze. Visiting the city of lumiere and amour in summer was one of the best experiences of my life. As it is the norm, I visited the Eiffel Tower, it is also imperative to call upon Mona Lisa and see her smile when in Paris!

The Mona Lisa finds herself the most visited lady in the world and her residence is the grand Louvre Palace. Most of us know this place as the largest museum in the world, the Louvre Museum.

It was lucky that we had a guide to take us through the important bits in this museum or we’d definitely lose our way.

I had studied about Louvre in my French lectures, one of the few subjects I really liked. I was expecting a modern structure much like the glass pyramid that is symbolic of this museum. Little was I expecting a royal palace! Read more about Lost in the Louvre: Napoleon III Apartments

Buddhism: A Brief Look Into the Religion

Explore a religion that embraces simplicity and rejects ignorance

It was on a rainy day that I found myself at the CSMVS Museum yet again. The excuse for my visit  was to enjoy the best monsoon views in the city of Mumbai which the museum has to offer & to revisit the Nepal and Tibetan gallery here. This gallery was long due a good thorough examination.

I have never visited any of India’s neighbouring countries. But I have always found them rather fascinating with their connection to Buddhism, a religion born in India.

Buddhism might not have as many followers in India as its neighbours but the essence of this religion finds its way into a student’s textbook at an early stage.

The enlightenment of Buddha and his story is a widely narrated folktale in India. The 4 Fold Path that is the crux of Buddhism is taught in schools too. However what the folklore and textbooks miss is the very essence of Buddhism and its oxymoron with Hinduism.

Visiting the Nepal and Tibetan Gallery, I learnt something very exciting about Buddhism that I couldn’t wait to share with you. Read more about Buddhism: A Brief Look Into the Religion

Spreading Light In the Dark: How Florence Nightingale Helped India

Florence Nightingale never set foot in the Indian subcontinent but had a fevered desire to help those in need

“It would be a noble beginning of a new order of things to use hygiene as the handmaid of civilisation”

Human health and medicine has been a part and parcel of life ever since the first humans walked this earth. Over a span of thousands of years, our knowledge about the human body and the successful treatment of diseases has grown exponentially.

What would be fatal not a 100 years ago, is but a mild hindrance in today’s times.

The field of Medicine with its doctors whom we set on a high pedestal, are truly god sent saviours. Their tireless efforts to bring health and hope to thousands of ailing patients is a noble task.

But just think a moment: are doctors the only saviours?  Read more about How Florence Nightingale Helped India

History of The Stock Market

The Biggest Tool of Today’s Era of Capitalisation is the Stock Market. Let us explore the story of how this market came to be & evolved

*Scroll down below for the glossary to uncover all the technical terms:)

Every newspaper, news channel and e-newspapers keep going on about the Sensex, the stocks and where to invest. Instead of the horrid humid weather and animated political talks, people consider it cool to discuss about this thing called the stock market.

What is this strange market we call the ‘Stock Market’?

To the uninitiated, stocks are simply a way to gain part ownership of a company. These stocks are first sold by the company to some people. These people further sell their stocks to others thus transferring their part ownership to the new buyer. This buying and selling of stocks takes place in a ‘Stock Exchange’. Together, this entire system is what we collectively call the ‘Stock Market’
