My birthday story

Image from http://www.istockphoto.com/
Yippee!! My birthday is on 1st Aug and it's a Saturday this time. No office, free time means more fun actually. I always love to celebrate my birthday since my childhood. During my school time, I used to call my school mates at home on my birthday. My mother used to cook delicious food ( Chole, Puri, Kheer etc.. ) for us. I used to get new cloths and that was all about celebrating a birthday. No concept of cake at all. Then my little sister started demanding for cake so cake cutting was allowed only on my sister’s birthday. After I got married, when my birthday came I was so excited and curious how my husband is going to surprise me. Mr N loves writing and he used to write his thoughts almost every day that time. Somehow I got to read what he was planning for my birthday. I was in seventh heaven. He had properly created a list of items which he wanted to do. And that list had things started from morning till night. I thought I was going to have a blast this birthday.

Finally it was 12 AM night. Mr N got cake and a card. He didn’t invited any of our friends because he wanted to celebrate it with only two of us. WOW!! I was on cloud nine and at the same time snoopy about the card. As I opened the card I thought to see it again. It was an “Anniversary Card” :) . He brought an anniversary card in place of a birthday card. I didn’t ask anything to him thinking he might feel bad. My birthday morning started with a rose. Again it surprised me (I knew it because I have already read his planning list). I went to my office and after reaching I realized something in my office bag. It was a color box. I love crafting so he gifted me a set of awesome color pencils. Everything was so well timed. After my office I reached home and pinned the card at pin board of our room. When he came from office and noticed that it was an anniversary card, he came to me laughing and told me that instead of getting birthday card, he brought anniversary card. I then accepted that I had noticed it that time only when he gave it to me. It was really funny!! Actually he was little apprehensive about getting birthday card for me so he asked for help to one of his married friend. They both went to the card shop and with his friend’s help Mr N started selecting card. He was so busy in reading the card matter of inside that he didn’t noticed what was written in front, “Anniversary Wishes”. Whole day went very well and with known surprises.

Whenever I remember this incident, it makes me smile and feel that “Love is blind” :) ..

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…
