#SayYesToTheWorld Traveling With Kids, It is Easier Than You Think

After having a kid in our life, we husband-wife were completely consumed in our parenting duties. Those initial days were very busy and hectic. I was trying to balance both, my work and an infant at home. Although my mother-in-law was with us to look after our few months old son, we both hardly had any free time. I once read that the best way to spell love is “T.I.M.E”. And we both were drained on this front. I knew it was a usual phase that every couple goes through after becoming parents, however, we both needed a break from our usual life.

We Planned The Perfect Getaway 
Then one day I read a post on traveling and reading this, I couldn't stop myself from forwarding this to my dear husband. The post was promoting new parents to go on vacations with small kids. As per the post, when kids are small and yet to join the school, this is the best time to explore the world with them. Realizing the fact, my husband planned a week-long travel but this time we were not alone. Our one and half year old boy was with us. Our plans and travel were completely focused on our toddler. Traveling with a toddler can be very intimidating. You never really know how he/she would react once you are out there (will they cry or shout or poop or throw up?). Thank God, we went ahead and booked our flight tickets. All my worries and apprehensions got busted after this trip. 

Monsoon Capital of India “Pune”
During that travel, we, husband-wife, got a chance to refresh our family and personal lives with enjoying a full week's vacation in Monsoon capital of India “Pune”. We went to a family friend's place there, and the first time I realized that a bit of TLC is needed in every relationship to keep it harmonious. Scientist says humans are pre-programmed to love green spaces of nature. There is something really special about being in nature; something magical that calms the depths of our souls like nothing else. Really, with so much greenery and good weather, our family Pune visit was awesomely wonderful. Roaming around in drizzling rain and enjoying the best of nature’s presence along with good friends, what can be better than that? Our visit included many places around Pune including beautiful Lavasa and Khandala.

Traveling Is Definitely the Best Time To Bond.
The best part of this exploration trek was my son's gleeful behavior throughout the trip. We normally feel young children may not remember the new things they discover during a trip but they do. Traveling teaches young kids many new things. They learn ways of the world. They learn how to be adaptable and they learn how to express themselves better. To my surprise, my toddler loved every bit of this travel. He was fine when we air traveled. He was absolutely cheery when we road traveled and he was even more elated when we walked in the rain of Lavasa. Traveling provides one of the best ways to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life. And during our Pune travel, we also got ample of time to give to our boy. I now feel traveling is definitely the best time to bond.

#SayYesToTheWorld With Kids 
I know, with kids comes a lot of exceptions and tough times, especially when you are at a new place. Howbeit, I feel a good planning can make your vacation an absolute bliss with the company of kids. Being open-minded in taking my toddler to new places, helped me realize that kids can be awesome vacation partners and a world travelers too. Better than grownups, kids express more openness for new people, new culture, and new surroundings. I have traveled many places with my young boy and all our trips were very pleasant. So, whether you decide a weekend getaway (which is what we planned), a short out-of-town trip or an adventure travel, please consider bringing your child or children with you. Don’t wait out until they are older. Moments like these could pass you by, so cherish it while you can. #SayYesToTheWorld and explore new places with your kids.

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…
