Salman Khan, Bhaijan Who Makes Millions of Hearts Beat

It’s Salman Khan’s birthday today! The Bhai of Bollywood has turned 52! Though he doesn’t look like, isn't it?

While I found many posts wishing him Happy Birthday and counting how many times he proved himself the real BHAI of Bollywood, I would like to talk about Salman Khan, a philanthropist. The happily single actor, despite giving blockbuster films one after another, also works abundantly in a space where he is someone very giving, caring and affectionate towards underprivileged people.The actor is very well known for his charity work and has been making headlines on the same. His charity foundation, Being Human, has already got recognition worldwide.

You know, in the time of face news, I really feel confused when I heard something unbelievable. And as per a well know media name, Salman Khan spends just 10% of his total income for himself while the rest of it he donates to charities. In one of the TV shows, I heard Salman Khan giving credit to his father Mr. Salim Khan for influencing him. As per the actor, his father hardly spends anything other than basic necessities and this inspired him to follow the similar way of living a life full of good deeds. Since the beginning of his career, Salim Khan had fixed 10% of Salman’s income to be spent for personal need. A part of the balance 90% is used for charity. Now when Salman has his own NGO, Being Human, the rest of his income goes to the same. Salman still doesn’t know how much money he actually has in his account. He maintains a low profile of himself and spends meagrely on his personal need.

As a common man, if you are confused, is this even possible to survive on only 10% of earning? Then you must keep in mind that he is not a 9 to 5 employee. He is a megastar and obviously earns in crores. His annual earing is close to 60-70 crores, 10% of this comes to 7 crores and that suffices to live a grander life. Salman Khan also has a passion for painting. And many times, we have seen how beautiful paintings he makes. In 2007, Salman auctioned his paintings and donate all the money earned to a charity organisation. Another love of his life is fitness. If I remember correctly, he is the first one who started showing off his toned body in films. There are many Bollywood actors who proudly say that Salman Bhai helped me in getting the perfect body and a perfect Bollywood break for that matter. As a 50+ man, he gives such big fitness goals to men of his age who mostly prefer breaking couch at home while watching TV and checking their mobile phones.

Now coming back to Salman Khan, the big heart man, I read somewhere that his NGO has adopted several villages in Maharashtra and outside the state. The organisation helps the underprivileged kids across India to get a better education. As per Mumbai Mirror report, when Salman Khan was shooting for his film 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' in Kashmir, he helped a family there. Zaina Begum met Salman when he was shooting in Pahalgam and let Salman know all her problems. The actor apparently helped her eldest grandson, Gowhar Ahmad Bhat with an immediate job and assured the family that they would never want anything else. Gowhar was quoted saying, "Upar khuda hai, neeche Salman Khan".

I know his name is involved in many other NO-GOOD cases where he went through court trails and even faced criticism for being a powerful man who eventually got the ball in his court. However, when I read posts like "बजरंगी भाईजान की वजह से धड़कता है कई बच्चों का दिल" I feel, even if he was charged for murder, there are many other lives who exist just because of him. There are many kids who smile today just because of him and there are many hopes still depends solely on him.

#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…
