Travel aspirations for new year!

New year resolutions all planned? Are all your resolutions dedicated just to your eating and living habits? Yeah? Thought so! That’s the food for your body, but what about your soul food? Ok! I get it. Lot of you are planning to depend some ME time for yourself or give an ample of time snatched from your daily routines to your yogas and meditations. But, is it enough? Enough to kill those piling up stress because of your sooo busy lifestyles and the continues struggle to manage to let those new year resolutions stay intact in the course of time!

Obviously, it ain’t enough! That’s why travelling from time to time in regular intervals is preferred to get you a better hang of your life and give your self some time to let your life and the situations connected to it get sorted better. That’s the reason I always resolve to travel atleast a little throughout the year between some gaps. Simply to get my life sorted the better way, to evolve myself as a better person able to deal better. To explore more of the charismatic universe around me. To know how the other side of the globe lives and can I adjust in the same situation too?

As a travel blogger, I always am in the struggle to find new places which I haven’t been before. Which has that charm to woo me up, the newness in it to refresh me and so much more that’s still unsaid because I haven’t been to these places before, isn’t it!

For this year, I aspire to explore more hilly ranges of Himalayas which are away hidden under the shelters of Nepal! Do you know, a great amount of unseen snow clad Himalayas comprise a beautiful destination at Nepal and is often visited only by adventurous tourists? The local tourists are yet to explore the stunning beauty here. This year, I plan to take a tour and indulge in this serene beauty of Himalayas.

I even have a wish to visit Jaisalmer, the beautiful dessert in the middle of Rajasthan that lets you feel the beauty of those dry desserts. The dessert safari, the local life out there, the historical qillas, there’s so much to explore!

Greece is another such location that attracts me towards it! Couldn’t define why, but those stories of those handsome Greek Gods have always been a keen interest for me since childhood. Those cultural richness in the infrastructure of this country is another reason for it being in my wish list. And of-course! Who wouldn’t like to adore that natural blessed beauty of this country.

Russia has been in my aspiration lists since the end of last year and I’ve resolved to visit the place in the late winters of this year. Apart from their snowy beauty, I think the fact that I’m learning their language and would love to know more about the lifestyles of the locals here makes it in my Wishlist for travel. I would definitely love to see the practical side of all my theory classes and experience a most chilled winter over here.

These are just a part of my new year aspirations which are on the top of the list! If you know me correctly, you’d definitely be knowing what kind of a greedy soul I am when it comes to travelling. There’s always a room for a quick holiday and vacation with my family even when my schedule is tightly packed and I intend to increase that quality holiday time this year! Well, that’s my new year resolution. A resolution of a travel freak and wanderlust!

Are we free? Really?

Just days back we celebrated our 72nd Independence Day! From all those lengthy Independence Day speeches, to the most creative Independence Day quotes! We have celebrated it with lots of vigour and excitement. Not to forget all those patriotic forward messages and images on freedom that were so frequently circulated all over the social media.

But the question is, how can we scream of happy Independence Day while we are still caged in the prison of traditional values and systems that have been slaving us since centuries? Just how can we shout out that we are free when our judgements are still bottled up to what our Society used to think about years ago and we still think the same? How can a country celebrate it’s s Independence Day when half of it’s population is still deprived of basic meals twice a day? Where in, these kids may not get food at regular intervals, but they easily get access to drugs and become an addict to it even before crossing their teens!

A nation that prides of being the largest practiser of democracy and human trafficking as well! Isn’t it strange? Where humans are sold in just a price of hundreds, not even thousands or lakhs. Is human life of no value in a country that has been independent since decades?

We are a nation where in dowry is the prevailing factor in fixing a marriage and later breaking it. Where in caste system still determines a persons educational and family life thereafter. Where child marriage and labour are still crossing paths in many states. A country that worships the women deities and where many women are degraded physically daily and they still have to be caged in their own house so that no one knows that they have victimised.

On what basis can we call ourselves free when still blame the victim more than the attacker and harass her to death! Just how much we deserve to be called free when our female children don’t even have the freedom to be born? They are killed inside the womb mostly and later even if they survive, they are either given away or sold out.

It is sarcastic how we are moving towards the IOT and satellites on one hand and on the other hand, we are dividing the united country on the basis of the food they eat. Does a free or independent nation steeps so low that they judge your character or persona on the basis of attire you wear?

What’s the use of being independent when we are so much dependent on our mentalities dating back to the uneducated ancestors to live a life of an educated person in a progressing country. Do you actually think these slaves of our society won’t revolt? Just like our leaders revolted years back against the biased rulers of our country, so will these slaves of society revolt one day. They’ll break the barriers hindering their progress and set themselves free.

But for this revolt, we need to wake up! We need to understand that freedom doesn’t just mean that you no longer have the reigning power on top of your head, it’s actually setting each and every citizen of the country free. It’s getting each of them uncaged from the prison of society that doesn’t even let them breathe according to their wish. It’s making our country so safe for every woman and children that they can move freely in their nation. It’s about changing our outlook towards others in the practical way and not judge others on the basis of what our traditions told us!

We could actually call ourselves free when each Indian stops asking himself this question, Are we free? really?

Getting ready for #MyFriendAlexa!

So, it’s the first time for me! I am all nervous and confused and searching all those articles on Alexa rank and browsing through twitter with the hashtag, #MyFriendAlexa and literally spamming blogchatter team there with my queries! Thanks God their patient and didn’t block me for this!

But I guess, I have got the main idea digested! It’s a blogging festival! A big one! That’ll eventually help me get a higher performance for my blog and not to forget getting the better ranking at its highness, Alexa. The lower I rank at Alexa, the higher I rank in the blogging world. Plus the interactions and genuine feedback’s I would be getting on my blog would be another positive factor to look forward to.

What’s more? For the love of reading, I get to read some varied works of numerous bloggers all so experienced and amazing writers because of this fest. A minimum of eight or many in one or many niches are welcome here too.

I guess, I should dedicate my September to a month full of variety of niches covered in this blogging fest. I would start a chain of blogs with genres and cover almost all aspects of lifestyle and other niches while we complete the fest. For example, my first blog would be on pregnancy stages while second can be on fashion styles. I can dedicate my third one for food and the fourth one for technology. Similarly, writing on travel for the fifth and finance for the sixth would be a great choice too. I am planning to let my seventh post be dedicated to food and eighth one for travel! Who knows I may even cross the eight figure and write more! May be the ninth one would be on parenting and tenth one can be on home decor ideas and I can even write an eleventh on fiction and more on parenting and more.

Let see if these ideas work and I can survive through this challenge after the A2Z challenge! Wish me luck and stay tuned for a month full of varied and exciting posts!

Clean and pollution free homes maintained easily!

As a parent I am usually so much worried about protecting my child from all odds! I try to make everything around them safe and sound so that they don’t get affected to anything harmful both physically and mentally. It’s a relative feeling to all parents too. We always tend to make sure our kids eat healthy, stay sanitised and stay in a clean surrounding, be protected from harmful diseases and what not, the list is endless. We always do feel something’s not safe even though we make sure everything is!

That’s the reason, I always make sure my kids are wearing mosquito repellents and proper clothings when outdoors to make them safe. At home, I know they are safe. I keep everything super tidy and clean to make sure they are! After all, our little heaven, our home sweet home is a place where we all relax and spend maximum of our times. I feel glad that my kids can stay well protected at our fully equipped home. With cctv cameras, fire extinguishers, modern technology machineries and spic and span clean home, my kids are exactly the best way they ought to be at their home.

But recently, while scrolling through twitter, I read a tweet that grabbed my attention! It said, the inner surroundings of our homes are five times more unsafe and polluted for our kids than the outer surroundings. This just left me so worried. If even after so much maintainence and cleanliness we are not safe at home, then where are we? This polluted air can cause my kids some respiratory diseases and flu too. I just can’t keep my kids masked at home! This thing has to be solved. This polluted air that was five times more dangerous than outer surroundings can effect my children so much.

Well, than I kept on thinking and came up with some ideas to avoid this situation. The answeres that I got were simply easy and can help a lot to avoid the accumulation of dust at home. These are:

  • Maintening door mats at entrance and cleaning and changing it regularly so that the outer dust gets absorbed on the mat.
  • Planting some saplings that’ll help in getting some fresh air at your house.
  • Usage of air freshener and deodorants only when your windows are wide open, so that least of it gets accumulated on your walls.
  • Getting proper sanitisation done after getting furniture polished and walls painted.
  • Keeping the corners clean and moist free with proper cleaning methods.
  • Usage of floor cleaners that provide hundred percent germ free protection. These are some little, easy ways that can keep you relieved that you are doing your best to protect your kids from polluted air. Apart from this, thanks a lot to indiblogger.in, I came across this advertisement that provided a guaranteed solution for the problem. Asian paints brings about a new paint with advanced technology, Royal Atmos, a paint that helps purity air and absorbs the dust in air and keeps your home safe and dust free. Hence, making sure my home, sweet home remains safe and heavenly with no danger for my kids health wise or otherwise. To know more just check this video.https://youtu.be/7Ivq4-jf_Lw

Be healthy your own sweet way!

Health is just so important! Being considered wealth commonly, we very well know how much it’s worthed. But, what we don’t know is to maintain this wealth perfectly in our safes forever. To maintain anything precious, a little effort on our part is needed so that it doesn’t disintegrate. So, a healthy body to be maintained calls for some efforts from individuals too.

We being so much busy nowadays have hardly any time to follow a proper meal schedule, let alone the idea of following regular exercise and diet plan. Taking all these efforts for some time may be possible, but a healthy body calls for constant attention for its well being. Concluding it simply, a 21st century individual has hardly the appropriate time, effort and sources to carry out the proper workout schedule and diet needed for a healthy body.

So what? We go on having bulging tummies? Forget about those tempting perfect figure? Be a victim of heart diseases and cholesterol problems? Nah! Read this quote thats a solution in itself!

Ever heard about little things that matter much? So, does little steps. As said perfectly above, There is no one giant step that does it, it’s a lot of steps! We may not be able to take out a huge chunk of our times daily for a proper exercise session or a jog, but taking on stairs instead of elevator can do wonders too. I really try and walk that mile toward the station daily while commuting from office so that I can burn atleast some calories gained that day.

Other than this, a little aerobics steps one or two doesn’t harm when you are busy watching Doreamon with your kido. Or taking her to an evening walk and also getting those groceries you need while doing so.

Yes, even a little stretching up done while are busy cleaning around the living room, or a little fast walk when you are moving from cabin to cabins at office can be included in being exercise for your body.

As rightly said above, lets creat habits not restrictions! Lets make our health and excercise a habit that tend to stay with us longer than making it a restriction that may seem like a burden later on.

At this time, these little habits created while you still carry on with daily routine can actually help you be mor healthy. Believe me, these little steps along with some tiny alteration in your meal plan may result in a better, healthier you and without even bothering to constraint your self with some extra training session.

So, even if your health was neglected till date, or you just couldn’t find enough time for a good excercise training session, you can start from today onwards. Lets from today make your everyday living a healthy workout for yourself and helo yourself become more healthy and fit. After all, all’s well when health is well!

For more inspiration, check this super cool video from Saffola that’s gives you some ideas on how you can get a better health your own sweet way, #ApneTareekeSeHealthy.

I am joining Saffola #ApneTareekeSeHealthy initiativeand sharing my ways of being healthy in association with BlogAdda

A day at kidzania!

“I want to become a doctor !” And the answer to this was, “yeah! Why not? When you grow up!” Remember these lines being repeated through out your childhood, we always wished if someone could say, “oh yes! You can become that today itself!” A dream it may sound though, but it’s turned to a beautiful reality for today’s growing generation of kids. How? Well, lets send all the credits of the same to kidzania, a theme park with hundred plus role play activities for kids. Getting famous globally for its unique theme and amazing experience with kids, kidzania has spread it’s wings in India too. Mumbai prides in having it’s very own kidzania at R city mall, Ghatkopar. A fun destination for your kids for the whole day with great lot of activities and entertainment awaits here. I was really impressed glancing through the glasses of northern wing of R city mall to catch the glimpse of this amazing new world for our kids. The rapid boarding and instructions process leads you in to explore the vast bounties of this world especially created for the kids. Lovely interior (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

Beautiful lanes at kidzania (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

With security bracelets tightened on our wrists, and a check of 50 kidzoes (the currency of kidzania) we stepped in to the world of awesomeness. This new world seemed to never have experienced a grey day or a sunset for that matter. The beautiful blue sky and the lush green trees promised a good spring season in here even when it was raining cats and dogs outside.The glamour of the stores and the beauty of the well built buildings and offices would certainly aww you. The clean and well maintained lanes and alleys intersected at proper points giving way to more incredible stops to explore. The special seats and lounge rooms for parents are made for convenience too, not that you’ll need them, all thanks to the excitement of watching your kids play multiple roles all in a day. The first step was encashing the cheque at the Yes bank for some kidzoes notes and moving ahead for the tasks to complete. All these process including encashing the cheques needed a brief scanning of your bracelets.

All the tasks you did are either plus or minus, when you chose a plus signed task, you get to earn for your services. While if you chose the latter, you tend to spend some of your kidzoes. Hence, the balance seems proportional and exciting too. This gave my kids the understanding that whenever you need to spend somewhere, you must earn in order to be able to do that. My clever little money minded chaps planned to earn loads and later to spend them generously. Hence, they went for being a dabba wala first. This gave them an opportunity to deliver some dabbas across the kidzania city and earn some kidzoes in return of it. So, along with a white coat, a safety cap and a typical dabba wala cap, went my kids with a cart to collect and deliver the dabbas. Wherever they went, they were greeted with a cheerful ki (Hi in their language) and a victory sign to go with it. This task took no more than fifteen minutes by the kids at a regular pace. Being a dabbawala (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

This done, they went to get some knowledge on examination and testing of fruits. For this they have to set off collect and examine some fresh kiwis and write the results of it on a writing pad all in a group of three. Again, this led them earning some more kidzoes. This one took approximately 15 minutes of time.

After this they loved being able to spend some kidzoes to go for a kidzania certified culinary course at bajaj electricals school. With the help of a talented and helpful chef, they prepared a healthy chocolate roll with in 20 minutes and along with a certificate for their efforts. Culinary course (relishingrascal.wordpress.com

Boys and their love for cars! Just can’t separate the two. Well, kidzania helped to bond them more. My son went for a maruti driving school course of 20 minutes spending some kidzoes and returning with a kidzania driving licence. Learning driving (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

Fashion show and modelling is what girls aspire the most. My daughters after spending some kidzoes, got to be trained for a fashion show and walk the ramp in a theatre in some lavish and cool clothes with an astounding style

Fashion show training (relishingrascal.wordpress.com) Shoping at big bazaar with no mummy to nudge and shout is what my baby loved the most out there. A trolley full of toys and the easiest way to pay in the mall is what she actually experienced the first time ever.

The aspiring doctors, my kids loved being a doctor and getting all the knowledge you needed to be for the same with in ten minutes and later using that knowledge to tend to an ailing patient bringing him back to the hospital in an ambulance. Doctor training (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

My kids were overwhelmed to try out preparing mango Frooti exactly the way it’s made at the factory and later getting a complimentary pack of the same within 20 minutes and even earning some kidzoes. Well, haven’t we got so many kidzoes notes to take care of? So, we opted to get a debit card instead from yes bank and use that. It was pretty easy with just depositing your kidzoes in the bank and getting your bracelet scanned and yo, we get th debit cards with our names and details in it. So, here we took off to become a dentist by examining a patient’s tooth from nearby and do the needful tasks to cure the same with in just 20 minutes. Dentist training (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

Kids enjoyed most being an RJ at radio city and letting their fans hear about them and a brief information on the ongoing festival of Ganesh chaturthi. RJ on Air (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

Those Kellogg’s chocos they munched so rapidly, they never knew it took so many efforts to get it made up and packed. Well, they learnt all that and made some too at the kidzania chocos outlet within 20 minutes and spending some kidzoes. The yummy art of making a super yummy donuts was exceptional. They loved working through out tipping generous chocolate on the fresh donuts and ravishing it later. They also became an expert in making Sbarro’s delectable pizzas and Hardy’s scrumptious burgers and even try and taste their work with so much pride. Learning making a pizza (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

These, and some more activities like delivering parcels and couriers being DHL courier person, a furniture expert in kidzania pepperfy training centre, a fireman with a proper fireman instructions class and an ambulance to ride on a real fire to extinguish, shiamak dance classes, bollywood acting school, animation centres, paddle pop ice candy making factory, parachute hair spa, camlin art and painting school, nerolac home painting, preparing cadbury dairy milk, star tv studio, parle candy house and much much more were so much fun to explore and indulge in. Woodcraft course (relishingrascal.wordpress.com)

I must say, for all the curios minds out there and those exploring little souls, kidzania is the best place to get to play all the roles they so much aspire in their life. The experiences they normally couldn’t even go near, can be experienced first hand with experts trainee staff in the most gentle way possible. The charming affectionate smile you get here is contagious plus not to forget the various add on activities according to the dates and festivals like the Ganesh chaturthi event that happened here with a thali decoration and an amazing group dance on Ganesh festival. If asked, I would strongly recommend each parent to take their kids for a jolly good time exploring these new ways at kidzania!

Everyday of being mommy!

The Indian Blogger Awards 2017

Getting up with the rising sun but feeling still sleepy! Going on, starting those chores. Doesn’t feel like smiling, but still I do when i wake up ny little one for school. Rushing and running within fifteen minutes of getting up so that the kid isn’t late to school. Doesn’t feel like cooking, bit still I do, make a meal, a healthier one, for my little one.

Pheww!! The child’s gone! Oh my God!! Husband needs to be woken up. Rush,rush rush!! Wake him up, prepare a good breakfast, pack the tiffin and pheww! Even he’s gone.

Let’s heave a sigh of relief! Oh Gosh! Baby is tossing, Oh my God! nooo, not now! But this one didn’t hear that. Why? Because he’s already crying on top of his voice. Run, run, run! Get him a feed. Oh God! He’s still screaming, let atleast the milk heat itself a little. Yeah, finally. He’s happy with the feed, gives me a smile and wait, ohh, finished it already and is already on an another mission.

Don’t tell me! How can he load his diaper when I haven’t even had a proper five minutes in bathroom? But who cares? ,He needs immediate attention or else, you know, your hears are going to be banged with loads to clean too. Noo! Not that mess, let’s get over this.

Ok, bathed and dressed, we seem to be happy playing with those blocks. Let’s get the cleaning done. Glad, bedroom looks fantastic, let’s get to kitchen and have some food. Feels good to have something finally after being running around the house for two hours consecutively. Ok, so little one enters here too toddling slowly and giving cute smile. Let’s share the meal!

Half of the meal in clothes and hopefully half in tummy, get him cleaned again, let’s head to the bedroom. Blink blink! Am I dreaming? Thought so there was a bed of mine behind those heap of topsy turvy things out there! The very perfectly managed room was all trashed and messed. I get a cute smile back when I stare at the culprit standing with me.

Four hours past! Hush! Baby’s asleep, lunch is cooked. I am full, let’s take a nap. Haww!! Feels great lying down and my eyelids are already dropping. Ding ting ding! Doorbell rings. Ok, the elder one’s home! “Hey, welcome back”, although feeling extremely sleepy, the glad fresh smile is genuine.

Well, sleep is a forgotten story, time to be a tutor after refreshing and fulling up the tummy of this big guy. Not to forget, the junior is around the corner on a mission against studies, tutor and especially on those pages of the books. Sigh! Two hours, literature and mathematics done, with hushing the little one away from the colourful books and stopping him from snatching those pencils.

Cooking time is the toughest! Both of them seem to be having all sorts of nature calls, fights and urgent needs at the same time. Doreamon acts like an angel at that time. Well, as fast as I can, cooking task gets completed. When mr. Daddy comes, I get a partner in dealing with the hoolygons, a little tired one though!

After dinner house looks like a whole cyclone has passes through it. Getting them in bed, a task to be completed any how immediately because I want to read something today, let’s see if I get some time and energy for it. Afer all those alleged calls from lions, bears and ugly old lady, they are finally snoring.

Oh my, my! I just couldn’t describe the bliss I feel when I see both of them fast asleep! And when I glanced at their dad, I know he feels the same. Too tired even to move, I yawned, showered and was ready to just drop dead, reading, can wait! Thank God, tomorrow’s a sunday. But I’ll have to wake up early tomorrow too, because the little one needs attention at 7a.m. in the morning. But that can be compensated as I have their dad to share the load.

With drooping eyes, I got a bomb to hear, “let’s go for a picnic tomorrow!” Eyes opened wide I repeated, “picnic tomorrow?” And the cassette started playing, getting the two excited kids ready, preparing all the snacks and drinks, managing the two fidgeting souls trying to drag almost everything they get their hands on, and not to forget the travel sickness to go with it. Ok, so let’s drop the plan, it’s going to be a huge flop!

But then, I glanced at those sleeping little ones and imagined all the glory they are going to feel and the exploring they are going to do, I smiled. said ,”yes, let’s go for a picnic tomorrow!” I know I would be dead tired when I’ll be back, would regret each second when they’ll drive me nuts, would end up being more crazy, but it’s ok, I’ll be glad! Feel the most pleasure ful seeing my kids happy. Well, that’s being a mommy, that’s motherhood!!
