Cosmetic surgery is not the only reason of superstar Sridevi's death: Dr. Monica Kapoor


The untimely death of megastar Sridevi due to a cardiac arrest took everyone into a shock. The 54-year old actress, who dominated the cinema in the 80s, went to Dubai to be a part of a family wedding. There have been widespread speculations about the unexpected death, with many experts and doctors alleging innumerable cosmetic surgeries that she underwent. 
Toxic doses of local anesthetic that are administered during the surgery are said to be the major cause behind sudden cardiac arrests. However, Dr. Monika Kapoor holds contradictory views about the same. Condemning the ideology that completely blames the surgery and medical treatments as the cause behind, Dr. Monika - who is a cosmetic surgeon herself, says, “Cosmetic surgeries could not be the only reason for someone’s sudden death. We can't blame medical procedures for such disaster, but the reason behind getting these cosmetic surgeries, i. e constant mental and social stress to look at their best could be blamed to an extent.” 
Elaborating further, she said, “If cosmetic surgeries were responsible for such death then, this could have happened long back in the past. Sridevi had undergone such surgeries in her early 40s as well.” 
Citing the example of Michael Jackson, Monika explained, “Prominent personalities like MJ underwent different cosmetic procedures and surgeries but nowhere in the world, surgical societies / medical societies blamed the cause of sudden death to these surgeries.” Dr. Monica also gave reference of other surgeries people undergo, and which are neither harmful. “People sometimes need multiple surgeries for tumour removal or for a complete cure, but that doesn't kill them. The constant social and mental stress to look picture perfect is the main culprit behind it and not these surgeries. So I believe the reason behind the surgeries I.e society or family pressure to maintain the status and profile, might have caused the sad demise of our the most iconic stars of all times.

Karan Johar tells everyone to take a ‘Self pity Spa’


Kjo has some really cool advices for his callers on his radio show- Calling Karan on Ishq 104.8 FM. While he has been getting calls round the globe on love and relationships, there was a recent caller who was brave enough to  openly speak up about her abusive relationship. While we talk about our society being liberal and its changing scenario, domestic violence and physical abuse is yet kept under wraps. 
In a recent episode, a caller shared her journey of being in an abusive relationship with her partner which took Karan aback.  KJo who is a confidant of many, clearly advised the caller to not entertain such things and not even sulk about it. He said, “Self-pity is a spa and you can stay in it for 5 days if you like and enjoy it. But one need to pull out of it too. He added that there should always be more support in a relationship than discouragement.
