Kabhi-Kabhi pas aane ke liye..door jana hota hai!

I once read that the best way to spell love is “T.I.M.E”. Unfortunately, time is something that many of us hard to find. Whether it's the time to spend with family or with kids, or with friends. Because of today’s fast lives, we live in a stressful and busy world where many of us are juggling full-time careers with looking after a family and home. However, we are informed people and many of us now recognize the importance of taking care of our mental and physical health. So we are also trying to squeeze in time for work-out routine and relaxation into our overstretched lives. But what about our relationship health? It doesn’t need any supporting fact to recognize that vacations improves family bonding and hence relationships. But there is certainly something to the mention that spending time together as a family, away from the stresses of the daily routine of work, office and domestic life, can make us all happier. At least for a while!
While going with the usual flow of life, we often neglect the importance of relationships. And time is essential for every relationship to both survive and shine. When we spend time with family and friends, it demonstrates our priorities in life. It shows our loved ones that they really matter and that being with them is meaningful to us. But unfortunately, we all only have 24 hours a day and 7 days a week so the only way to make more time for our relationships is to have a complete breakaway.
During the start of this month, I (with my family ) got a chance to refresh my family and personal lives with enjoying a full week's vacation in Pune. We went to a family friend's place there and the first time I realized that a bit of TLC is needed in every relationship to keep it harmonious. Before we landed that, I was not much familiar with Pradeep Bhaiya and Usha bhabhi (my husband's friend and his wife, whom we lovingly call Bhaiya and Bhabhi). But the day I left Pune, they were like my family members, who mind and care even the smallest discomfort around us. They took us to different beautiful places in Pune and amazingly the smallest member of my family, my 22 months old tot, enjoyed a lot in their company. Sometimes we fear to take an extra step and make new relationships for life but we both, me and my husband, were overwhelmed after staying with Bhaiya-bhabhi. The little time I spent with Usha Bhabhi has made me a big admirer of her. Another couple that accompanied us was Roma and Veeru Bhaiya. Veeru Bhaiya is a scientist in DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) but his simplicity and jolly nature is absolutely commendable. 
Scientist says humans are pre-programmed to love green spaces of nature. There is something really special about being in nature; something magical that calms the depths of our souls like nothing else. With so much greenery and good weather, our Pune visit was awesomely wonderful. I even regretted that we live in Delhi. Seeing those greenery coated mountains and waterfalls, I am in love with Pune. Roaming around in drizzling rain and enjoying the best of nature’s presence along with good friends, what can be better than that?
Thanks to my husband who realized that we badly needed that 'us' time and he planned this wonderful break for me. “It’s quality, not quantity that counts”. And this is never truer than when we talk about time with our partner. Spending a week’s time, when we had more reasons to laugh, enjoy and memorize, has made us recall our best of qualities which we normally ignore while balancing our routine office and family lives. True is that "Kabhi-Kabhi pas aane ke liye..door jana hota hai! " (Sometimes going far, gets people closer) With this almost 1200 km long journey, I have come close to both the families who were with us in Pune. And worth mentioning, I have come closer to my husband!

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

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…

The Young Chronicle - A Personal News App For Kids

Our kids these days are spending a good amount of time checking and using today's smartphone. And the most amusing thing is kids are getting, even more, smarter to understand this whole world of apps, games, selfies and video recording. In no time they understand how such and such app works. In very less time, they skill those gimmicky games and challenge us showing the score. However, this screen time should be controlled for good health of a child. For parents, it is a responsibility to keep an eye on what content kids are watching, what types of games they are playing and what things they are sharing on social media.

 Being a new generation people, we can't live separated from our phones. Neither can we keep our kids completely away from using phones. But what we can do is to facilitate things that can be helpful for kids even if they come in the form of phone apps and games. Educational apps and informative games can provide our kids much-needed insight and knowledge. One…
