Reader’s Digest India | June 2012 Issue | Magazine Reviews

This month I didn’t receive my subscription copy of Reader’s Digest India June 2012 so far. Which delayed reviewing the same. Usually I receive it on time, so no hard feelings so far. Anyway, I managed to get the another copy from the market and here are the reviews for the same. The on-stand copy have a pouch of energy drink free with the same. However the pouch was having a leakage or so, which made the copy of the magazine a little dirty.

The central article is about the decease of Alzheimer’s where science offered new hope for the patient. The editorial is titled as “Mind Matters, Earth Matters”; referring both Alzheimer’s and the World Environment day which we celebrate on 5th June each year now. If you look at the time from a different vision, it will make you realize that to save the Earth, you need to have strong will (so Mind Matters!). The people who plants a tree, use the electricity, petrol and other energy sources wisely and effectively, make others aware of the water saving tricks, etc. are the real environment savers and the will of those people is what makes the difference!

Outrageous section discusses the stuff that “the reason behind India still have 21% land is covered with forest despite of the remarkable urbanization is the involvement of local people and tribes living in or near the forests. Are government (or concerned department) playing fair with them?!”. You can read the stuff to know the questions raised.

React section have reader’s reaction regarding the themed article of the previous issue about Cosmetic surgery. A fellow says that good look complements good qualities but the revert is not true. Well, what you all think? Ideally the statement is true but real world actually most of the times you see things happening which are not ideal. Also one lady said wisely that as her look resembles (or is combination of that of) her parents, so she will not go under knife. Right, the people who are the reason of your existence are reflected from your appearance, so unless it is necessary, it is advisable to not to play with the looks. One interesting reply is about the student commit suicide for being canned at school (or institution). A fellow says not only teacher and school but also family environment at home is also responsible for the same. If there is healthy environment at home, the student can explain the stuff happened to him at the school. That is right. Though when powerful people are involved in the process, and student belong to a regular family, the family support may not help much. But the ultimate truth is the support of the family is the most precious force for anyone.

Ask Laskas, have a very genuine question that a number of employee or business runners have encountered. It is about a lady came to saloon very late from her appointment timings, usually at the time to close the saloon and then finally makes the person attending her very late. The adviser’s answer is very much direct and polite. There is a reason that there are business/office hours, because the people working there have their lives and family! Now you know what to do if you are irritated with such client who is habitual to make you run out of time almost regularly. Read other etiquette oriented stuff inside.

Bittu Sehgal, the editor of Sanctuary Asia magazine and activist; provides the details about Mike Pandey. Mike Pandey is an environmentalist who made “Shores of Silence”, a documentary about Whale Shark Killing and trading. Actually the entire chain of nature is disturbed when a segment of the same is played with. The mini-version of the documentary is available on youtube and here it is for you.
