A Friend in Need is A Friend iNDeed

Well, all of us must have heard about this saying which helps us identify our true friends and also helps in keeping away from false friends. This I believe is probably the real sense of this saying. Isn't that? However, in most friendship examples I find this saying inspiring a different sense of friendship. 

Instead of waiting for the hard time to judge the loyalty and sincerity of friends, people have started making friendship with only those who can serve them in need. For example,I remember when I was a child, someone who had a car in our society was a friend of most people. The car owner uncle and his family was invited at everyone's party. The car owner was greeted with morning/evening wishes by most others. In short, everybody wanted to be a friend of the one who has a car so that they can ask for their car when in need. Now, if the car owner does not refuse to give his car to others in need, he is a good friend; else, not. Because we know that a friend in need is a friend indeed. 

The case remains same  in college where all the people coming to college by their own bikes have a really long list of friends, both boys as well as girls. Out of that long list of friends, most are in need of bike someday or the other, and ask their bike owner friend to lend their bike. So, if the bike owner boy does not refuses to give his bike to those in need, he is a good friend; else, not. Because of the same guideline. 

Thanks to reliance jio that calls and data are affordable now, otherwise I remember how friends used to ask for our phones to make an urgent call and check where you are a friend indeed or not. Though we still have things ranging from nailpaint to eyeliner, tops to earrings and handbags to belts which can be asked from a friend in need to judge whether you are a friend indeed. 

Despite everything, friendship has no perfect guideline or rule to follow. People who are not our relatives but are liked by us are our friends. We enjoy their company, we can share our feelings with them, we understand them and they also understand us. Your friend may not be your brother, sister, father mother, cousin, uncle, anty or life partner but he or she can definitely make you feel no absence of any of these. 

Friendship is divine. I don't deny that a friend in need is a friend indeed, but I truly criticize making friends just because of the things they own and can lend us. Those who do so are friend with greed!

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…
