Skinny jeans is best suited for the petite framed individuals. They can carry off the tight jeans with ease. On the other hand, those with boyish looking bodies must stick to straight cuts, as any other cut would make them look disproportionate.

Six million Muslims performed Umrah July 23, 2013 19:26

The governor of Makkah has brought into prominence that near about six million Muslims performed Umrah, the smaller Islamic pilgrimage during the first ten days of Ramadan. Furthermore, Saudi daily Al Eqtisadiya reported on Monday, Egyptians moved ahead the list of foreigners who arrived in Saudi Arabia for the Umrah accompanying 700,000, coming in sequence by Indonesians. Iranians were third with 331,000. Many Muslims choose rather than to perform Umrah in Ramadan, the month during which physically able adult men along with women cease from food and drink from sunrise until sunset. Prince Khalid Al Faisal expressed saying nearly 5.6 million people who came for the Umrah have left the country. Interestingly Saudi authorities, under pressure linked to expansion work at the Grand Mosque in Makkah, have been engaged in compromises to meet increasing applications to perform Umrah, yet also guarantee there is no high-risk overcrowding. On Thursday, the authorities extended the deadline for Umrah visa applications from Ramadan 10 to 15. The decision was established with an intention to help a higher number of Muslims faithful perform the lesser pilgrimage during Ramadan. Nevertheless, the authorities have also pushed for a limited stay in the religious city to accommodate the large numbers of locals and foreigners. Visitors have been told that they cannot stay more than two weeks and that they have to leave by the end of Ramadan. A major issue for the authorities has been the numbers of overstayers, precisely foreigners from Asia and Africa who made an effort to remain in Makkah for the longest time possible. Saudi Arabia beforehand this year said that it was reducing the numbers of pilgrims during the Haj season by 50 per cent among those living in the kingdom and by 20 per cent among those living abroad. May God bless the humankind! (AW:Samrat Biswas)

Get ready for color changing clothes July 20, 2013 13:56

Going a step further, the future of fashion may be clothes that can change color on demand. Scientists arrived at this idea by observing tropical butterflies. These beautiful species have tiny crystal-like structures in their wings, giving rise to the illusion of bright colors. Butterflies have layered wings with small differences between them. Hong Kong researchers are trying to apply this principle to creating clothes, which are 'tuned' to changes. Varied color patterns can be seen, just like those observed on the Papilio Ulysses butterfly. The butterfly is found in Australia and has the property of iridescence. This property enables a change in color depending on the viewing angle. The Emerald Swallowtail butterfly has a thick green color, true to its name. But it can be seen as blue, when seen from another angle. This concept can be applied to clothes as well. Designer materials may be able to change color or seen differently in different lights and angles. Color changing clothes will be a practical addition to someone who works hard in the morning and parties harder at night. Picture Courtesy: Dailymail (AW: Sruthi)
