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.

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…
