The fire within us: International Firefighters’ Day special

On the occasion of International Firefighters’ Day, we took these brave firefighters to meet individuals they had rescued years ago, risking their own lives. It was a reunion like no other!
With the help of the firefighters, we traced the individuals who they had successfully rescued from the deadliest of fires. It didn’t seem possible in the beginning, as people had shifted cities, changed jobs, or moved to new localities in the last few years. But, we were luckily able to connect to a few individuals who were rescued by these firemen. It was a highly emotional moment as the rescuers met their rescuees after years.(Shivam Saxena/Hindustan Times)

Stop scraping the snowflakes, deal with them: How to deal with dandruff during winters

The colder months mean dandruff and a flaky scalp. So if you’re still scratching your head on how you will manage it this time, look no further.
Most of us mistake flaking of the scalp for dandruff. Flaking is not dandruff. Dandruff is mostly caused by seborrheic dermatitis (a skin condition that causes scaly patches and red skin on the scalp), or scalp psoriasis. In winter, exacerbation of flaking is usually due to dry skin conditions.(Getty Images/iStockphoto)
