be remembered than unattractive ones (Reuters) Related News Pretty faces are less likely to be remembered than unattractive ones according to a new study Psychologists at the University of Jena in Germany have demonstrated that attractive faces without particularly remarkable features leave a much less distinctive impression Great eyes full lips and harmonious features: actress Angelina Jolie is in possession of all of these researchers said That she is regarded as the epitome of female attractiveness doesn’t come as a surprise for researchers Holger Wiese and colleagues Carolin Altmann and Professor Stefan Schweinberger “Her features combine many factors which contribute to the attractiveness of a face” Wiese said “On the one hand we find very symmetrical and rather average faces appealing On the other hand people who are perceived as being particularly attractive stand out by additional traits which distinguish them from the average” he said Researchers said apart from being attractive features like big eyes or a distinctively shaped mouth ensure a high recognition value “We tend to remember those faces well” said Wiese But this isn’t generally true for all attractive people as – Wiese and his colleagues have shown in the new study “We could show that the test subjects were more likely to remember unattractive faces than attractive ones when the latter didn’t have any particularly noticeable traits” Wiese said The psychologists showed photos of faces to their test subjects One half of the faces were considered as being more attractive the other half as less attractive and all of them were being thought of as similarly distinctive looking The test subjects were shown the faces only for a few seconds to memorise them During the ensuing test phase they were again shown faces and they had to decide if they recognised them The scientists were surprised by the results “Until now we assumed that it was generally easier to memorise faces which are being perceived as attractive – just because we prefer looking at beautiful faces” said Wiese But the new scientific results are showing that such a correlation cannot be easily sustained Wiese and his colleagues assume that the recognition in the case of attractive faces is distorted by emotional influences which exacerbate the recognition at a later time The study was published in the journal

12:36 am A Name for Every Leaf Selected Poems 1959-2015 Related News Book: A Name for Every Leaf Selected Poems 1959-2015 Author: Ashok Vajpeyi Translated by: Rahul Soni Publisher: Harper Perennial Pages: 228 Price: Rs 450 Plato is responsible for perhaps the most passionate assault on art and poetry in human civilization To disparage the tribe the Greek master even put up a supposed poet Meletus in The Apology as one of the three prosecutors of Socrates If all art is indeed an aspiration to confront both its ancestors and posterity Ashok Vajpeyi is among the biggest custodians of what can be termed as the “cosmos of arts” in Indian languages He has 15 poetry collections in Hindi nearly a dozen of which were written in the last two decades besides substantial work on music and visual arts in English A Name for Every Leaf an English translation of a selection of his poems written between 1959 and 2015 by Rahul Soni also has his essays and an interview on the art of poetry which makes this a poetic manifesto of sorts A poet is marked by the universe he weaves into his verses Besides love the perennial theme of poetry Vajpeyi is on a search for ancestors and gods fusing a neighborhood with distant galaxies with an epistemic faith that “hope” resides in words alone Most gods have disappeared the rest are fallen creatures like humans and the poet chooses “holy words” not for a “prayer” but to compose poems “I am most human” he asserts “when I am with poetry” and elsewhere acknowledges the eternal vigil of words: “words watch over us: They fall weightless upon the soul” Does Vajpeyi embrace poetry by Neti-Neti after navigating other available universes It appears that his faith in poetry has an epiphanic intuitive element It goes before the civilisation learned about the word faith In this unflinching fidelity to poetry also lies his tribute to his ancestors notably Ajneya for whom the word was the supreme entity Indian languages have an ingrained mythical consciousness that cannot be easily rendered into English often not without the considerable loss of the accompanying fable Rabindranath Tagore’s Gora or UR Ananthamurthy’s Samskara two novels that grapple with the idea of India lose much of their textual conflict in English The word is not an isolated entity Being perhaps the most definitive arena of cultural friction and fusion the word evolves over centuries bearing the bruises and wounds inflicted by its users Translating poetry whose objective as Vajpeyi notes is to “retain reanimate and rehabilitate racial memory” is fraught with obvious dangers This is the second book-length poetry translation by Soni after Srikant Verma’s Magadh In a quiet linguistic transformation Soni brings to Vajpeyi’s verses one can hear the silent conversation between a veteran poet and a young translator “Earlier I translated like a writer I translated as if these were my poems and I wrote them in a different language It’s now that I translate as a translator” In Soni’s observations about his craft lie the struggle of a translator who evolves with the language he weaves This book ends with Vajpeyi’s lecture “Failure of poetry” at the Poetry Society of India two years ago Approaching his 75th year Vajpeyi reflects on the many failures he as a poet and as an institution-builder underwent He laments the diminishing role of poetry almost wails that “poetry has lost the epic impulse” and “is no longer able to cope with the world now dominated by poverty and exploitation or opulence in plenitude fashion glamour” The aging poet is now able to discern the limitation of poetry and notes that poets “seem to be living in a ghetto of our making There is a poetry ghetto in which we are now caught” Read this wonderful essay as his swansong to learn about the intellectual and devotional contours of a poetic life To learn that while the poet admits to his “failure” at the dawn but the final breath of his art lends a “moral dignity” to this failure Vajpeyi creates a sacred anatomy in which the poet “laments only in poetry because there is no other space left for regret or dreams” For all the latest Lifestyle News

Indian hockey is back to the top of the table once again” Jackson said “I have spent four-five years playing alongside Manpreet (Singh) Biru (Birendra Lakra) and Kothajit (Singh) who have all grown as
