Study suggests that teens that sleep late are more emotional as compared to those who sleep early. So teens who want to sleep late find it difficult with behavior and reasoning than their peers who simply fail to get enough rest at night.

It was also found in the study that one in five adolescents get less than 7 hours of sleep on school nights, and the amount of sleep teen got did not influence ability to manage things like behavior, emotions and memory.

So teens who sleep late find it very difficult in self-regulation feel drowsy during the whole day. Infect it is not how long you sleep that has the biggest impact on self-influence, but when you sleep in relation to the body’s natural circadian rhythms and how  impaired you are by sleepiness.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that kids who get 8 – 10 hours of sleep due to changes in circadian rhythms coinciding with puberty, most teens don’t sleep before 11pm and their morning wake up time should be 8am so that they can get both an optimal amount and timing of sleep.

The results of this study suggests that teens who sleep late and wake up early for school start timings are associated with impaired self-regulation, which in turn may contribute to risk taking behaviors, poor control over emotions, impaired thinking skills. Also this pattern of sleeping not just effect mentally (obesity, depression) but also have and physical impact related to safety (car accidents, sports injuries, etc.)

Teens who sleep late may find it difficult to control their emotions

This study was performed through online survey of 20,017 students in 7th class to 12th class at 19 public schools in Fairfax country, Virginia and 54% were in high school with an average of 15 years of age.

The average sleeping time of students was around 7.7 hours on school nights.

Amazingly this study does not prove that daytime sleepiness or a natural tendency to sleep at certain time can directly cause poor self-regulation but on the same hand it is also impossible to rule out the possibility that a poor self-regulation can actually makes it harder for teens to sleep.

So how parents can help teens to have better sleep and develop good sleeping habits?

They can limit the bright lights from TV, smartphones and other devices which emit lights for at-least one hour before they are going to hit the sack. It is because artificial lights suppress melatonin and make it harder to fall asleep.

Taking cue from his father, his capable son Rakesh Bharadwaj, a maestro in rythem music, has now dedicated his entire life to further promote ahead his father’s enriched legacy but in a different form.

A perfect singer and a musician of repute being well versed in playing every musical instrument with tremendousamont of dexterity , keeping in view the changing times and coping with the interests and preferences of the new generation Rakesh has tried to redevelop his late father’s legacy of popular songs in different tunes to suit the present generation though not disturbing the actual lyrics and their meanings there of.

His latest band with orchestra mixes his father’s old popular songs to give them a new interesting blend best suiting to the music intetest of the current young generation inviting tremendous applauds and appreciation. Till now Rakesh Bharadwaj has under fusion held hundreds of shows all over India including foreign countries amongst the Uttarakhandies inviting tremendous applauds n bringing laurels to the family and the music fraternity. Let’s have a look at a newpost . live post on talented Rakesh:

Year 1999. Dr. Palash Sen’s Euphoria comes out with ‘Mayari’ a song which instantly tops music charts across the country and around the same time, making his debut in the Euphoria band was a young lad from Pauri, Garhwal called Rakesh Bhardwaj.

18 years since then, Rakesh Bhardwaj a maestro in rhythm instruments including those from Garhwal and its folk songs, hasnt looked back. Initiated into the world of fusion music Rakesh was born into the family of legendary Garhwali singer Chander Singh Rahi, the first Garhwali to sing at the All India Radio Station, so it doesn’t come as surprise when Rakesh tells us, ‘Music, was my first love, I started playing musical instruments at a young age and would hear my father sing. Then at 13, I started my formal education at the Gandharwa Mahavidyalay, learning tabla from Ustad Faiyaz Khan guru and at present I am a disciple of Taal Yogi Pt. Suresh Talwarkar ji.’

In the year 2014, the famous percussionist conceptualised, ‘Pahadi soul,’ a company dedicated to revive and renew old, authentic pahari songs giving it a fresh tinge. ‘I always wanted to do something worthwhile for my hill-state, give it that recognition, it truly deserves, specially in the field of music.’

He bravely chose ‘Bedo Paako’ as his first choice of song to reinvent. The song considered as the anthem for Garhwalis all over the world became an instant hit. Since, then Rakesh has painstakingly reinvented music videos, some based on his father’s early songs such as ‘saat samundar paar,’ ‘apni thati tay‘, ‘Gado Guloband,’ and more recently followed by ‘Kukdi.‘

‘I am not in it for the money,’ he tells us. ‘It is about my passion for our culture, tradition and more so our music that keeps me going. Music is a wind that blows away years and distance within minutes. I want to revive forgotten, soulful songs from our magic mountains without loosing their authenticity.’

Rakesh states that he will not stop reinventing regional songs until he comes across a young lad or girl playing pahadi songs on his/her mobile instead of a Punjabi song.

Definitely our man, is on a mission and he is not going to miss a beat, until it is achieved.

CHIPKO LEGEND GAURA DEVI BEING REMEMBERED TODAY ON ITS 45TH ANNIVERSARY

Published

on

Today is the 45th anniversary of Chipko movement and is celebrated primarily by the environmentalists and those seriously concerned about the degrading environment of the Himalayas and the country. This was the first ever eco feminist movement against the rampant felling of trees in Garhwal Himalayas and in India. In the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand this historic day holds tremendous relevance as the chief founder of this movement called Chipko Andolan a committed woman activist Gaura Devi alongwith her fellow women activists started this movement today in 1973 by embracing the trees thus discouraging the then prevalent contractors and forest mafia from incessant cutting of trees in the jungles of Garhwal, Uttarakhand.

There slogan was first axe us then the fully grown gre trees. Chipko movement thereafter gained global significance and sent acrose the country and the world a positive message against widescale deforestation. The movement was inspired and backed by eminent environmentalists and recipient of several national and international coveted awards and recognitions viz Chandi Prasad Bhatt and Sunder Lal Bahuguna. Chipko leader Gaura Devi was a great woman of commitment, dedication and devotion who protected the forests from axing of trees in the Garhwal Himalayas alongwith her several women colleagues about 40 years ago from now.

The movement gained such a widespread momentum and impacted the government that in 1980 the then prime minister of India issued directives to ban felling and cutting of trees in the Uttarakhand Himalayas for 15 long years followed by credible forest act. The movement later on spread in other parts of the country like Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, entire Vindhyachal, West Bengal and around the globe. Gaura Devi was, though after a long spell but felicitated with prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Award for environment protection by the Government of India including international honours.

Today if there is awareness around the country and the globe against felling of trees and subsequent protection and preservation of forests and environment its only because of this great legend Gaura Devi and her handful of co women activists. My salutes to this great woman achiever on CHIPKO DAY with the appeal to one and all to safeguard the forests and trees of the entire Himalayan belt and the country which are our actual lungs and oxygen givers.

According to the veteran social reformer and activist Ramesh Pahari the Chipko movement was primarily the result and outcome against the incessant felling of trees and for the protection of the rights of the local villagers to safeguard their forests. It was in the year 1973, 24th April that under the president ship of social activist Alam Singh Bisht, a huge meeting was organised for the first time in Gopeshwar in which Gaura Devi and her co women activists were also present.

The reason for convening this largely attended meeting was to unitedly and forcefully oppose the Simon Company’s contractors and workers who were sanctioned the government contract to cut large number of trees. As a sequel to this, another meeting was organised at Fata Rampur under the leadership of Kedar Singh Rawat and there came into existence the great Chipko movement.

The leader of this movement was Gaura Devi. She belonged to Rayinee village and the Simon Company was accorded the contract to axe about 2400 full grown trees situated in and around hervillage’s periphery. All the contractors of the forest department and their workers were fully armed and ready for the mission tree felling but Gaura Devi and her 27 highly dedicated co women activists hugged trees and bravely fought the contractors, finally making them run away.

They hugged the trees and asked the workers to first axe them before finally axing the trees. They hugged the tree trunks for hours together thus discouraging the contractors finally. The women risked their lives but would not allow the single tree to be cut inviting a wave of anger amongst the local populace against the forest contractors who had finally no option but to run away never to return back.

A committe was thereafter formed by the government under the chairmanship of Dr. Virendra Kumar which officially recommended stop to the tree felling exercise, permanentally. The movement thereafter gained national and international attention and media hype.
