Secret Smoking is Affecting your Relationships.. To All men who smoke

"Smoking is extremely dangerous". We all know this very well and thanks to our government and laws which never let us forget any bit of it. We can see this message in red-bold everywhere, even at the cigarettes boxes as well. But why men from our society still find it difficult to understand? OR, if they understand it's negative effects then why they can't quit it? The health community has succeeded so well in convincing us of the dangers of smoking for our health. But another fact that no law can rationalize about smoking is it kills relationships.
As smoking out in the open becomes less acceptable in homes, offices, and other public places, people started "secret smoking" which is a new kind of part-time smoking and increasingly common on the current scene. Many husbands and fathers are also into this secret smoking thing. They utterly know that smoking in front of family members is not a healthy and civilized thing so they smoke secretly and try to hide it with mouth fresheners or chewing-gums. But sadly they fail to hide it completely because their hands and clothes scream that they just smoked. My blog is for all those fathers and husbands who still smoke knowing the fact that their families hate it. And with it, they are giving slow poison to their valuable relationships. Wives fear what would happen to their families if husbands fall sick. Kids fear how they would pass their lives with ailing fathers.
The process of smoking in secret is two-sided. On the side, smokers are "sparing" their loved ones, who would be upset to see them smoke. On the other hand, they are "sparing" themselves from acknowledging the guilt which smoking brings to them. Despite the fact that they know it's unhealthy, filthy and nasty, they are not able to give it up or they don’t want to try their best. Smoking not only affects their relationship with family and friends but it affects their relationship with themselves and their own bodies. Wives try to change their husbands in the name of their love but mostly fail. They also try to make them understand its side-effects on their kids. But no matter what family members do, smokers find a way to prove it 'not that fatal' by limiting the no of cigarettes.  
With due respect to their personal space and habits, I want to ask a few questions to all those men who are fathers, husbands, and smokers also. Do you know what are the consequences of engaging in this hidden behavior (secret smoking) that your spouse and kids are so against? Why do families want you to stop smoking? If you fail to answer, let me tell you because your family members love you a lot! They want to see you all healthy and happy. They want to avoid any such moment when you don’t feel best of your spirit. Your family members value your life so much.
As I don’t smoke, I might not understand the challenges of quitting this habit. However, all I want to say to all such men who smoke, “make your life better by going smoke-free”. With your secret smoking, you are letting your loved ones down even without noticing. I know it’s difficult but not impossible. Please consider it for your family!

#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.

The First Post Of #MyFriendAlexa 

Coming back to the title of this post, I know you might be awed to read it. Of course, there is no discrimination who can read the blog and who not. Our blog…

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:

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…
