Fruity Fun of Summers

The summers have always been special as they bring vacation and reasons that you can plan a hill station holiday. However, one more thing that makes summers so special is the availability of a range of mouth-watering fruits through this season. Let me make you count these juicy delights of this season; mango, watermelon, litchi, apple, plum, kiwi, cucumber, guava, black plum (jamum), musk melon and many more.



Though we get most fruits all season these days in supermarkets, the real taste of these can only be tasted in their season according to me. All these fruits are not only tempting to our taste buds but also highly nutritious for us.

Most summer fruits like plums, melons, litchi etc. are rich with water content which is a must have in the summer season. They help you get calories (energy), calcium, vitamins, fiber and minerals. Summer Fruits like mango are source of vitamin K which is very good for our bone health. Summer Fruits like black plum (Jamum) are very helpful in controlling blood sugar and thus prevent diabetes. Summer Fruits like guava are rich in fiber and sooth our digestion system and prevent constipation.

Besides being a source of iron, calcium, potassium, carbohydrate, folate, calories and vitamins, the summer fruits are also rich in antioxidants. The king of summer fruits, that is mango, is rich with antioxidants that prevent macular degeneration that causes aging in people. Thus, summer fruits’ consumption is helpful in keeping us younger and beautiful too. These are delighting natural sources of nutrition that nourish our eyes, hair and skin.
These fruits are must haves not because of what they provide us but also because of what they take away from us. Consumption of summer fruits prevents obesity, cancer, asthma, heat stroke, dehydration and many other diseases that none of us would ever wish to meet with. 

So, go on pick these juicy delights of summer season before the season gets over because you know should not miss the nourishment they serve you with.

  2. I agree with you... not just fruits but even veggies. It's better to eat seasonal fruits and veggies because the quality and freshness is much better! This post is really good for moms like me who don't really have enough information about what fruits grow in which season! :)

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

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:
How you are p…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…
