How To Live Happier?

As per a survey done over millennials asking them what their most important life goals were, most of them said that they wanted to get rich and famous. But is money the secret to the happiness? People say NO, money is certainly not the reason to bring happiness, but should we completely forget the cash? A few times, my wallet was stolen and this never made me happy. Even I was gloomy for days thinking about the cash loss.  Then how we feel happy? How brain gives us the signals so as to make us feel happy? Happiness is a brain created phenomenon, undoubtedly, but what brain does is never straightforward or simple to understand. Science says there are things called " Happy Hormones " namely dopamine, endorphins, serotonin and oxytocin. Dopamine is mostly linked to happiness. So, if you want to feel happier you need to increase your dopamine levels. However, this is not that simple as it looks. The brain’s functioning is maddeningly complex. And something like "increase t

Five must watch Basu Chattergee Classics

  Themorning news took me to a reason for expressing my soulful tribute to the Great director Basu Chattergee. I prefer adding 'Great' instead of 'Late' with his name as I am a super fan of his films despite I am born in an year later than most of his films I look ve were released. I feel the great film makers of that era were unfortunately deprived of the stardom they truly deserve. I mean, I told his demise to a friend and his reaction confirmed that he has never watched a Basu Chattergee film. I then hmmm the song thoda hai thode ki zarurat hai... and tagged that it belongs to my most favourite Basu Chattergee film. Here I am listing five of Basu Da classics that are a real must watch for any Hindi cinema lover: Khatta Meetha: With legend Ashok Kumar and Rakesh Roshan this film is going to involve you into the complex life of simple Parsi people in late 70s where Homi Mistry marries Nargis at an age when the children of both are supposed to get married.

#CauseAChatter Digital Accessibility, What Is The Need?

Accessibility is not new. Braille was invented in 1824 so that visually impaired people can read and it was the first significant efforts toward accessibility. But when Braille was invented by Louis Braille, a Frenchman who lost his sight as a result of a childhood accident, no one had ever thought that the future will be the technology era.  Today we are internet age people. Every single information and option is available on the internet and just one click away. Be it related to studies, entertainment, policies, shopping or work. If we notice, our lives are very much aligned with the internet these days. Isn't it?  Typically, we use devices like a desktop, laptop or a mobile phone to exercise service that the internet provide us. And for the ease of use, we also have keyboards and mouse to get things done fast. Unfortunately, not all the people around the globe are capable of accessing the web by using a mouse and keyboard. Why? Because they have one or other type of disa

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who.. I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold. ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life! I am not the wife wh

#CauseAChatter Digital Accessibility, Why is it important?

It is been almost two years , I am working in the accessibility domain. I am a software project manager and accessibility is the thing I get paid for.  Accessibility is making things usable for disabled people. It says to make our surroundings accessible for people of all abilities and disabilities.  My work is in digital/electronic accessibility which holds to make sure that every digital information is perceivable for specially-abled people. We test websites and apps to see if people with disabilities can use them. We also give suggestions on how to make them accessible, if they are not. And one step ahead, we assess website and app designs beforehand so that eventually they can provide a great usability experience to people with disabilities. Interestingly, for normal users, those websites look no different. But behind a new age looking website, we put an extra layer so that to make it instrumental for all.  During #myfriendalexa 2018, I wrote on a topic which is my wor

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert. From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns.
