Phiroz Vandrevala quits TCS as director
Indian IT bellwether Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS) on Saturday announced that its non-executive director Phiroz Vandrevala had resigned from the company for personal reasons on Friday.
 
"Phiroz Vandrevala has relinquished the office of non-executive director of the company, due to personal reasons, with effect from July 8, 2016," the global software major said in a regulatory filing on the BSE.
 
As Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of Diligenta, a subsidiary of TCS focused on the life and pensions industry, 63-year-old Vandrevala drove its business strategy and operations worldwide.
 
"The TCS board thanked Vandrevala for his contribution during his tenure on the board since 2007," the city-based company said in a statement later.
 
Prior to his leadership role at Diligenta, Vandrevala was the executive director and head of TCS' global corporate affairs.
 
In the banking and financial services sector, Vandrevala was on expert committees of the Reserve Bank of India on policy-making.
 
Vandrevala was also the co-chair of the Indo-British Partnership (IBP) for five years and is a board member of its network.
 
"As former chairman and executive council member of the IT industry's apex body -- National Association of Software Companies, Vandrevala played a prominent role in industry initiatives," the statement added.
 
A qualified chartered accountant, Vandrevala graduated from Kolkata, where he was born in 1953, and worked with consumer goods major ITC Ltd for three years before joining TCS in 1982.
 
In 1989, Vandrevala had set up India operations of the US-based Tandem Corporation before rejoining TCS in 1992.
 
He currently lives in London with his wife Shashi.

Keep the monsoon troubles at bay
Rains are here, and so are the skin and hair fears. Sweat and oil deposits make the skin and hair really dull so adjust your skin and hair care routine according to the season. From avoiding rubbing your face while drying it up to avoid hair spray and hair gel can do the trick, says an expert.
 
A change in weather does not mean you put do away with your skin and hair care routine. Nivedita Dadu, dermatologist from skinology of Skin and Hair Clinic, suggests how.
 
* Cleanse your skin: Washing the impurities away from our skin allows it to breathe. Clean your skin by washing thoroughly with soap and by removing impurities. But to protect the skin's natural oils, avoid anti-fungal and perfumed soaps. Instead use a non-soapy cleanser that ensures deep pore cleansing. Splashing the eyes with cold water also provides great relief.
 
* Don't rub your face while drying it: The facial skin is very delicate so rubbing it with a towel can cause hyper-pigmentation. Gently pat it dry avoiding any kind of friction
 
* Go for fruit based face packs: It is also an excellent way to freshen up dull skin and the monsoon is the best weather for them -- there is no risk of sun exposure and sensitivity after the peeling session. 
 
* Don’t Tie your hair if it gets wet in rain: Rain causes humidity which leads to split ends because rain water has chlorine in it. After returning home, shampoo your hairs, leave it to dry and then only tie it.
 
* Don’t use hair gel or hair sprays: hair is already dry and fizzy during rainy season and these products cause more dryness. Use nice hair serum after every wash. As it carries silicon which helps giving shine to your hairs. Serum is considered to be Anti-Humidity product
