One of the best news we heard this week was that Komolika might return in the Kasautii Zindagii Kay reboot that Ekta Kapoor is slated to launch. It will be so nostalgic to watch the popular vamp back on television. Every ’90s kid, who has lived through the Kasautii era, still remembers everything about Komolika. The music, makeup, look – all of it is still pretty fresh in our minds. In fact, it’s just a couple of TV villains who have managed to make that impact on us and leave us impressed. For instance, Sudha Chandran as Ramola Sikand and Ashwini Kalsekar as Jigyasa in Kasamh Se. Meghna Malik, as Ammaji in Laado, was also one of the most strong female villain characters onscreen. How we wish we saw these villains back on the small screen. Not that the current onscreen vamps are bad. In fact we absolutely love Shagun in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and Yamini in Naagin but the vamps of the past were iconic. They stood out and how! More than watching the female protagonists fight for justice and against all the obstacles, we were excited to watch what the next moves of these vamps would be. Be it planning a murder or getting the main leads divorced on the show – they have done it all; sometimes for the sake of money and sometimes just because they are jealous. In fact, I still remember one instance in YHM, where Shagun expressed how much she misses conspiring against Ishita after she moved to another country with Mani. You see, for them being bad is being good. (Text - Bollywoodlife.com)
Have you missed a few periods lately? It could be a sign you're pregnant – but it could also be a sign of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects a woman’s hormone levels. Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones. This hormone imbalance causes them to skip menstrual periods and makes it harder for them to get pregnant. PCOS can lead to increased risk of some serious medical health issues for women down the road, so it's important to know the symptoms and get the right treatment and diagnosis. Many women have PCOS but don’t know it. It is a health problem that affects one in 10 women of childbearing age and up to 70 percent of women with PCOS don't get diagnosed. Here, 8 signs you might want to schedule an appointment with your doctor. (Text - News18)
