Move on PEDALs..

Last month, I had noticed few stylish bicycles parked outside my office. In a few days, I have been noticing those cycles parked outside a nearby mall, at my society main gate and more other places. And last evening my husband took me on a cycle ride on the same cycle I have been noticing. What an experience it was! I would have been on cycle after many years but I had a completely refreshing experience of half an hour.

In Kolkata, this has been ventured by a gang of cycle ride lovers who did their fair part towards our mother earth by developing the idea of letting people ride bicycles for a certain period of short distance travel inside the city. The service is high tech also. It goes on with the support of an app that helps you locate and book your ride from one place to another. The cycles given for ride are equipped with GPS which can help you locate where a cycle is standing. It is similar to how we book an Ola or Uber cab for a ride.


These cycles are stylish and can do a lot more to add to your personal impression. There are three basic reasons that urge you take the Pedal ride;

The Noble sake: If you are a noble soul who wants to do his part for mother earth, you can take a cycle ride for a short distance that you can pedal instead of wasting money and fuel. While there is enough hoax about climate change and environmental pollution, people are more aware and more ready to switch to options like cycles. Even a single ride in a week would save a lot. You would save the environment at the same time keeping your fuel expense managed to better purpose.

The Health sake: Cycling is well-known fitness mantra we all know. Even after paying for a gym subscription we go and do cycling. But that is a closed room boring cycle ride I tell you. The morning or evening fresh air cycling is going to give you the fitness you have been craving for since long. Burn calories do activate your muscles and keep the approaching old age at a bay just with a regular cycle ride available now.

The Happiness sake: One little ride inside the society campus would remind you of your school days when you were young and of those moments you were learning to do stunts with a cycle show your friends or to impress someone. You might become a kid racing along with your friends while on your Pedal ride. It might remind you of 'JO JEETA WOHI SIKANDAR' if that was a movie of your adolescence period. IF nothing such happens, one thing for sure is that you are going to get rid of stress. As has been proved by researchers exercising keeps people stress free as it deviates their mind towards something else.


Such facility should be launched in more cities of the country soon and my smiling "thanks" to those who make this happen for us in Kolkata. Take your ride and find out how you become addicted to Pedals.

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…

#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.
