EXPLORING WORLD WITH OPEN ARMS:)

Packing bags for my next adventure,
I stumbled upon a thought..
Why am I intensely fascinated with the world?

A smile came and broadened
As thoughts rippled through.
Interpreting my affinity for adventure.

Wanderlust me..

Answering “Why do I love the world?”

Travelling made me a complete person. An overhaul from a shy, timid girl to a confident woman who is curious to explore varieties spread across the world!

A gradual yet consistent change that brought me closer to myself and the world.

1) Getting out of Comfort Zone

Happy in my comfort zone, I was reluctant to move an inch here or there. You won’t believe, I used to be a couch potato with few friends. And strangely, I didn’t wish to come out of my eat-sleep-repeat mode. Till one day my cousins ‘packed’ me along with other things for their trip….well literally packed 😂
The trip initiated a pleasant change in my life.

I began to realize that there’s a life beyond what I could visualize in my comfort zone. This world is full of many undiscovered paths that need to be explored.

2) Carving an Inquisitive me

The journey from a ‘Couch Potato’ to an ‘Explorer’ was terrific!
Once tasted the flavour of travel, I became curious to explore more to know more.
About the limitless landscapes, the dodging hills, the amusing valleys, the colourful people, the sumptuous foods, the beautiful Flora and fauna, the majestic architecture….there was so much to do. My fascination with the world had just begun.

3) Meeting distinctively Interesting People

Over the years I’ve developed a habit of meeting new people and absorbing their culture.
By grabbing the opportunity that travelling is, I find many instances of sharing regional vibes with people across the world. And for me, this is the best incentive.

4) Tasting food from around the world

Travelling is a bliss for a foodie like me. I get to taste variety of deliciously tempting delicacies. I’m not very fussy about food but real good food is what I always crave for. By travelling to near and far places, my taste buds are pampered;)

This encourages me to pack my bags for the next travel.

5) Exploring beauty of diverse landscapes

Confined to the four walls of my home, I was unaware of nature’s beautiful spread.

Travel made me alive.
I’ve been to hills to plateaus to plains and every journey brings me closer to nature.
I find a deep connection between humans and nature. There’s a need to spend sufficient time in the lap of Mother Nature to understand the depth.

6) Procuring a Confident me

Last but not the least, travelling has the biggest contribution in building up confidence in me. Be it exploring unknown places or interacting with strangers, there’s a visible change!

We have Lufthansa spreading happiness with this special campaign #SayYesToTheWorld

What would you like to say Yes! to?

Pin on the map and you might win a trip of lifetime🙂

Cutting Water to Save Tomorrow- A Livpure Initiative

Water..
Precious life essential,
Flourishes living creatures.

Water…
Without which,
We can’t imagine to take next breath.

Water….
Every drop blesses,
Every drop counts.

Look back at our golden past..

As a child I never felt the need to save water as there was plenty. It is one of ‘a few of my favorite things’ I miss in my grown-up days. We used to play, bathe, sprinkle and nobody knew the meaning of scarcity of water! Blessed childhood.

Today’s Scenario..

Open tap and chances of getting water are 50-50!

Open newspaper and find innumerable accounts of water shortage.

Authorities find it difficult to fulfill the water requirement of the people.

There are restrictions on the usage of water.

Tap water is not supposed to be consumed. It can be contaminated!

Water filters have become an essential.
Summer days are the worst because of water shortage.

Potable water comes at a price.

Can you imagine, our Coca Cola includes treated rainwater!!

Water demand is projected to increase by 55% in the next 20 years. Food demand will be up by 69% by 2035. But fresh water resources are draining at a much faster rate!

Worried? Yes, you must be.

Open your eyes to the dark future..

Think..
Can you exist without water?
The answer is simply NO.
Three fourth of our body is made up of water and it can’t function without it.

If the global fresh water crisis continues like this, there is no future!!

There are many predictions of bleak future without water.

It’s time to be responsible.
Think of the numerous ways you can save water.
-Use bucket instead of shower for bathing.
– Get all faucets, pipes and toilets checked for leaks.
-Turn off water when you’re brushing your teeth.
– Fully load your washing machine to reduce water usage
– Instead of a hose pipe, use bucket and mug to clean your car.
.
.
.
There are so many!
One such initiative is #CuttingPaani by Livpure.

CuttingPaani is about using only the amount of water we require. In our homes or work places, we serve glasses full of water. This water is clean drinking water. We take a sip or two and the rest of the water goes in drain.
Unknowingly, we waste a lot of water!

Let’s pledge to adopt #CuttingPaani as life mantra to conserve water.

“Paani Bachao, Cutting Mangao”

Sign the petition, which will be submitted to restaurant owners and concerned government authorities to take appropriate measures for the implementation of #CuttingPaani.

Pad Revolution!

I’m surprised to see everyone talking about sanitary pads. India is witnessing a revolution, I must say.
From NGOs to Celebrities to Common man, everybody wants to speak up for the menstrual hygiene of the women! It was not the case a few days ago.

Words about menstruation or sanitary pads were (are?) often muted or pronounced in “whispers”. It was (or is it still) considered shameful to talk about menstruation in public. I don’t know about other countries but in India, girls didn’t (don’t) have freedom to discuss menstrual hygiene openly.

The least talked about issue is, today, the spiced content of the headlines.

Based on the real life story of social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, the film Padman is successful in hitting the right chord.

A school dropout from a poor family in southern India has revolutionised menstrual health for rural women in developing countries by inventing a simple machine they can use to make cheap sanitary pads.

The scenario has changed since the release of Padman. Girls and Women are happy to see celebrities talking about pads openly in an effort to break the taboo.

The family movie, no doubt has been successful in delivering the message. Taboo is slowly turning into acceptable norm.

When Youth icons are involved in bringing about a revolutionary change, the day is not very far.

A change for the better is in the process.

As the protagonist of Padman says,”Woman strong, mother strong, sister strong, then country strong!:)

54 is not the age to go- RIP Sridevi

My morning came with a bad news. The versatile actress Sridevi is no more. Shocked and saddened by the news, I looked back at her wonderful work that gave Indian cinema a glamorous turn.

Sadma, Mr India, Chaalbaaz, Chandni, Lamhe, Nagina, English Vinglish are a few of her spectacular acting landmarks.

That day I was watching a song from yesteryears movie – “Julie”. 11-12 year old petite lady, Sridevi was looking gorgeous. Her confidence spoke volumes about the success she was going to gain in future.

Sridevi is a role model for many women who aspire to touch heights with their talent.

Saluting the timeless diva for her enchanting beauty, phenomenal acting skills and extensive connectivity to family.

We will continue to love the Divine beauty.

Alas! Only if we could cherish her ageless beauty and awesomeness for some more time.

Sridevi. She will always stay in hearts because her place is just irreplaceable💔

Wonders of Vitamin E- Are you getting sufficient amount? #Evion 

My Vitamin E Mantra!

Over the last few years, I’ve been in the process of developing healthier habits. Healthy food, regular exercise and learning to say no to junk food. Everything that’s labelled “Healthy and Nutritious” catches my attention. I think this is the case with most of us.

With advanced medical researches come better diagnosis of diseases. Stressed lifestyle makes it essential for us to stay in good health. And I’m glad our generation is heading towards healthier options.

A few months ago, I came across an article regarding importance of Vitamin E. As I mentioned earlier, everything related to health gets my attention these days, I grasped it more effectively than I must have done in school;)

Vitamin E is a wonder nutrient that repairs damaged skin, thickens hair and slows ageing. A super nutrient that can prevent heart disease by controlling cholesterol levels, balance hormones and helps PMS symptoms.

Check out foods rich in Vitamin E.

One of the most important things is that Vitamin E is an antioxidant. What does it mean? It means that Vitamin E helps protect cells from damaging. Being fat-soluble, Vitamin E gets easily stored in our body and can be used when needed.

Usually we get this essential nutrient from our diet. But sometimes our body shows signal of Vitamin E- deficiency!

Vitamin E Deficiency Symptoms:

Deficiency of Vitamin E may cause many serious problems.

1) Irregularities in digestive system (That can cause poor absorption of nutrients in the body).

2) Dry and rough hair (That’s not a good sign).

3) Patched and wrinkled skin (To make things worse).

4) Damage to nervous system ( Means inability to handle everyday activities efficiently).

5) Pain, inflammation, tingling or loss of sensation (And that’s going to make life a nuisance).

6) Muscular Weakness ( Be careful).

By taking Vitamin E-rich food and supplements, you can be sure that these problems won’t bother you easily.

My mantra is to take Evion supplement so that I may not suffer from Vitamin E deficiency. I love my hair and skin:)

Evion is a good mix of Vitamin E and Aloe Vera. It saves skin from damage and rejuvenates it with nutrients.

Every night, I wash my face and massage with Evion. For smoother and beautiful skin:)

    The shampoo had a code on it as you can see in the picture below. I was hesitant at first because it was my first blind trial. First use and I found the shampoo amazing:)

    More washes. The shampoo pampered my hair and I fell in love with the product. But didn’t know the name of the brand!

    Can’t tell you how satisfied I am after submitting the review. The shampoo was really great, much better than all I’ve tried in the past!

    My Excuses for NOT Writing a Blog Post!! 

    Every time I think of writing a blog post, I’m confused. 

    ‘What should I write?’

    I enjoy people writing about various things. From fashion to technology to travel, all sorts are worth drooling over. 

    But when it comes to writing myself,  I’m like a foolish person. There are many things that come to my mind. 

    1. What should be the title?

    2. Which age group should I target?

    3. How to get the pictures?

    4. Some catchy words? 

    5. What this what that….

    6. Blah

    7. Blah

    8. Blah

    9. And the last but not the least- the AUDIENCE! Who is going to read my stuff and why would they?

     

     Many excuses. These are sufficient to make me abandon my work;) 

    1. Publishing a blog would mean a greater responsibility to get interactions. Otherwise the hard work you put in while writing the post will go in vain.

     2. Secondly, I get ideas to write when I’m busy doing one thing or the other. And when I sit down to write, all ideas get diluted. The passion fades away and whatever I write goes to trash. 
    3. Another reason seems to be my over indulgence in social media. I get carried away by online stories only to deprive myself of the precious time;) 

    4. And my unborn ‘creations’ just refuse to take off 😀 

    ….Simple as that but ridiculously unbelievable. No? You don’t think it’s unbelievable?

    Hmmmmm your story seems to resemble mine. Feel free to share your excuses in the comment section 😀

    Bharatpur: India: Where Birds Dare 🐦 

    It was last weekend and weather was tempting. I so wished for a memorable weekend trip. Wishes do come true when you try with all your resources. Thus happened my trip to Bharatpur.

    Bharatpur is just 180 Km from my place. The place is famous for Keoladeo National Park ( A UNESCO’s World Heritage Site). It lies on the Golden Tourism Triangle of Delhi–Jaipur–Agra and hence a large number of national and international tourists visit Bharatpur every year.

    We booked a 3* hotel ‘The Bagh’ in Bharatpur and checked in Saturday afternoon. We were told that the bird sanctuary closes at 5:30 pm. So we opted to visit the sanctuary the next morning. Saturday evening was spent in the hotel. Far from my imagination, the hotel itself housed a number of birds. Peacocks. Peahens. Wild cocks and hens.

    Amidst forest bliss, Bharatpur is a visual treat everywhere. Calm and serene. The only voice you’d hear is the chattering Of birds:)

    Sunday was the day:)

    We started off at 7 in the morning. Equipped with our cameras and binoculars. (Later we found that our low power binoculars were of no use in watching far-off birds)

    It was our first visit to a Bird Sanctuary, we were excited beyond limits;)

    At the entrance of Keoladeo National Park, there were rickshaws and bicycles 🚴 for hiring. We realised that exploring the 5 kilometre place without a conveyance was not possible. We hired a guide who was equipped with a powerful telescope. The magical journey to the Bird Sanctuary began:)

    The Bird Park being natural habitat of birds, is the witness to natural activities birds are engaged in. How birds pray, how birds sleep, how birds perch and how birds take flights. The movement of birds was so beautiful that I couldn’t take my eyes off them. Thanks to our guide, we could watch and click distant birds. The guide was so talented that he could spot the birds with their chirps!

    Sharing some beautiful pics with you:)

    Fear to open your petals O’dainty bud.. 

    Fear to open your petals O’dainty bud

    In this cruel world of terror

    Guns don’t spare roses

    Dreams are always shattered.

    Leave not the secure shield of earth,

    O’ slender sapling
    Lie unaware in her lap

    Rough are the terrains,you wish to explore.

    Beware as you peep outta shell

    O’whitey pearl

    Hopes are met with deception

    Endurance is judged by severest of elements…
