While Choosing Between Adidas and Puma

Sports are well promoted these days. Appreciably, the bravo bash of recent triumphs by Indian sports persons has allowed all of us to reconsider the sports person inside. For a few of those flowing in this wave it is time to identify their sport and choose their sportswear. For most sports persons the latter is as important as choosing their sport. Among all sportswear, shoes are considerably most important. Recently while deciding on my sports shoe brand, I get to know some interesting facts which I am sharing here with you.
Choosing Between Adidas and Puma by Vibhu & Me


I landed upon two well-known brands Adidas and Puma. And when I researched more about them, I found an interesting fact. The two most famous international brands are actually part of one common family owned business. The known as close rivals in the industry today had their origin from a Dassler Brothers Sports Shoe Company of 1920. The two founders of this company were obviously the Dassler brothers, Adlof Dasslers and Rudolf Dassler who had started together in a small town in Germany. Their business boomed after Dassler shoes adorned the feet of gold-medal-winning Olympians in the 1930s. But as their sales spiked, so did the tension between the two brothers. 


A few years later, believed to be in 1948, the brothers had a serious divide between them and the business got divided among the two. Adolf named his new company as Adidas and Rudolf found Puma as a suitable name as for its company after calling it by the Ruda for some time. The two new companies got established at opposite banks of Aurach river of Herzogenaurach town of Germany.

I also found stories claiming the reason of divide among them was perceived supremacy of excellence and clashes among their wives. Be it any reason, the two top German shoemakers rushed for excellence to beat the rivalry between the two and we the customers kept getting the advantage of their continuous quality upgrades.

Although the news was flashed about their burial of hostility in 2009 after the death of Adi and Rudi marked by a friendly sports event sponsored by the two companies jointly, we still choose between Adidas or Puma as one more reliable and affordable and comfortable shoemaker.

#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.

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…
