Natural health is timeless. It will never date. It will always be relevant, despite what the media tells you about ‘new’, ‘improved’, ‘scientific’ and all the other gimmicky words that are only employed to impress you enough to buy something. And, happily, natural health is currently enjoying the comeback it deserves. To enjoy it, there are at least three really important aspects to address. The first is your diet. There’s a saying that a quarter of what you eat keeps you alive. Three quarters of what you eat keeps your doctor alive.

Mr Jinnah’s lifestyle resembled that of an upper-class English gentleman. His clothes made him one of the best-dressed men in the world, rivaled in united India perhaps only by Motilal Nehru, the father of Jawaharlal. Among the women, net was a big favorite and borders were used and usually appliquéd on dresses,” elucidates Lahore-based designer Beegee. Due to the western influence, the use of traditional garments such as angarkhas, choghas and jamas diminished considerably. However, on the other hand, the ceremonial safa, pagri, topi and sherwani became as widespread as ever among the menfolk.
