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!

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…
