#BlogchatterA2Z Theme Reveal - It Is All About Spices

When I started writing in 2015, my son was 14 months old. He only was my inspiration to start writing. I used to write my own parenting experiences and everyday problems. In many of blogs, I shared my wisdom as a working mother. I also gave importance to share how my husband supported me all through being always there for me. I never imagined that one day I would have my own blog and I would expand my horizons of writing. In 2017, I got my own blogging space with the name "Vibhu & Me". Vibhu is my son's name and he would always remain the biggest inspiration for my posts.

Now I write in diverse subjects. Parenting is, of course, my best-loved genre because I have practical insight there (I am a mother of a naughty boy). However, I love to write about Indian art, culture, cuisines, folklore, and mythology. Because this way I research a lot and reading about India and Indian culture always make me spirited. I also feel confident in expressing my views on relationships and social issues. And a few of my blog posts belong to these two categories.

Stepping one more feat, this year I am taking part in #BlogchatterA2Z. Although the contest is not new for me. Last year also I read so many posts those were part of #AtoZChallenge. However, I got late in getting myself registered and when this year's #BlogchatterA2Z was announced, without any delay I registered myself. I really like to take this challenge. And as today is the theme reveal, I would really like to say it aloud.  

No, I am not going to give relationship mantras. Rather, my theme is to let everyone know about the spices available in India. It is hard to imagine cooking without spices in our country. Isn't it? Spices are known as one of the most remarkable ingredients of the Indian cuisine all around the world. They are natural flavoring elements that not only gives our food that special taste, but also enrich our food with medicinal properties. Remeber having a ginger tea for all your cold- cough troubles?

In my journey of #BlogchatterA2Z, every day I would talk about spices and try to list their benefits in different forms. I admit not all spices I have used in my cooking. But I know many because my father's maternal grandfather was a Vaidya. And in Ayurveda, spices are heavily used for curative and therapeutic benefits. I have seen Chavanprash getting made in my house and that too with 100 different ingredients. So, starting from A to Z, I would pick one (or more) spice and will let you know about it in brief. Some of the common ones you already know. But, a few would be completely new names for you. 

So, be with me during #BlogchatterA2Z. I am sure you would love it.

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…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
