World of Magical Stories

 

Stories, Sometimes parents love it, sometimes we hate it! But the fact of the matter is, Life itself is a story with the beginning and an end. Once the life take us through the phases when we were Kid ourselves, Stories gain prime importance. From narrating Bed time stories, to listening up new cooked stories from kids, engrossing them in self-made super funny and non existent stories, STORIES become an innate part of us.

And yes, this is my recent Phase and that’s how I love to define the word Story.

S = “Story teller” Mom

T = Takes over the “Tantrums”

O = Moves from the world of “Originality”

R = World full of “Reverie”

Y = Kids “Yearn” for more

My kid close to turning 3, has mastered the art of cooking stories which I hear the day in and out. And when that stock is over, Its comes as a “next turn” for me to frame up stores ranging from all time favourite Jungle stories to Mermaid to Moon and Space stories. Wonder, I can be such a creative story-teller for my kid;)

Similar thing happened when we opened up a pack of Colgate with #Colgate Magical stories,. Looking at the characters, my kid just got himself a tag of “Uncivilized” from me, running madly around the house. Hardly did I knew that he was already in a state of being “Neil Armstrong” of conquering the “white glittery moon”, of wearing the shoes and telling me “Mumma bye I’am going to Moon”. Lol, but believe me, I was in a state of Awe and then began “OUR” journey to Moon, which looked so beautiful “indeed in a fresh cooked up Story”.

Giving wings to his Dreams, here he flew with his friends!


And that’s how we weaved together an amazing story to help him reach the Moon, solar system and create an interest in the amazing science. I was bombarded with so many questions, which pleased me all through, as that added so much of little piece of knowledge to their developing brains. It was indeed a “healthy Food” for they grey matter and all via such a creative form.

Loved the way Colgate has brought out “Creativity” in kids clubbed with Knowledge. Creating more such characters will for sure help kids in expanding their view beyond the world. Kudos to them .

Happy Kid!

End of Black & White era

This idea sucks! It completely sucks! This society will not let me live in peace, so what it means an Old mansion for me. Life has struck 12’0..n there is a deep silence.. Neurons aren’t working, Mom’s extra “almonds” are paying off no results, it seems I am in Pre-Edison life, that dark life.

Health has begun taking a toll, BP is constantly on a rise, Migraine is a perfect companion not willing to take divorce, Doctors have become best friends & clinics my new “Pub”.

Suddenly, on the other side of the hi-chair, a lean freaky voice tried giving a sobbing advice.. Go take the pain, I’am the survivor of it! Forget “Life is a heaven for next few months, get you house renovated & painted”. Huh, but how to get rid of those seepages, who seem to give me the showers more than Cherrapunji?

And a dark silence broke..I had no solutions, deal was locked in the mind..I tried calling our yesteryear “Kisan Uncle”to take over the mansion for next few months.

I was willing to take an adventure break – right out there in an opposite park! People awarded the adventurous girl with a really “Tainted tented days”. Just some days on & my mansion had turned into dusty unhealthy jungle ..Wished I could measure the AQI then.

Kisan uncle had painted more of the furnitures & side bars rather than doing over the walls. It all seemed so tortured, it felt I had some magical spell ,a perfect black magic the day I took that decision. I shouted for a help this time from the core of my heart.

Society is so much willing to help people post disaster, so much empathy & advices poured in. “Ram has a wonderful hand…Meera kaki will clean up all the task…why don’t you go for self-making your room..blah blah” .

So this time, an intelligent women woke up, doing her research & taking some professional advice. Soon the ratings & reviews were gossiping a lot about “Berger Paints & their Berger XP service”.

Nature Park Unfolded- Bharatpur Bird sanctuary

Winters.. Sunny day..what could be better than visit a Nature Park or Bird Sanctuary to pamper your eyes with some amazing Avifauna’s around us?

Yes, We did the same & visited Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary or often called as Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary in Bharatpur, Rajasthan , situated very close to Delhi (3.5-4hrs run) & Agra and poses as a perfect weekend destination .

All the more why this place stands apart from many small bio-diversity parks, is the quantum of Migratory birds visiting Bharatpur Nature Park or Bird Sanctuary during the winter season.

Encapsulating close to 350 species in itself, this Nature park is a treat to Bird lover, Ornithologists , you just cant stop the lenses to click & click.

Here lies my detailed post live on Thrillophilia travelogue on Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, an amazing Nature park for Avifauna in Rajasthan.

Spotted Owls getting Cozy

My camera couldn’t stop the coziness shared by the Spotted owls ,and as usual the third one was already besides them pondering when to take over the personal space! lol

Was amazing to see all 3 sitting spotted owls together just as the clouds played peek-a-boo with the sun in morning!

Actually God blessed me with viewing 5 owls that beautiful day!

Same was captured at Rajasthan , town -Bharatpur, having the grandeur of Keoladeo or Bharatpur bird sanctuary in itself, as paradise for the birds & specially in winters when numerous migratory birds flourish here.

10 Moments you’ll not miss if you’re smooth

Biggest concern ….now what to do..Gosh had an outing …Had a party invite!

Concern getting addressed: Courtesy “Braun Epilators”, you can be silky smooth at a moment’s notice for as long as 4weeks (without in between worries)& then you go:)

It’s the worst! A last minute opportunity to have fun…an invite from friends, a fun party, a smoothie with your crush…but you have to ponder how to make it out because you’re, not at your smoothest! Really hate those in-between days when stubble means you can’t wear your favourite outfit, or you just feel you have to say no to that exciting invitation. Let’s celebrate 10 moments you won’t have to miss out on if your skin is always smooth. 

  1. Pool Parties :

We’ll winters in North are the best time to visit beaches (Goa/Puri/South/Diu), perfect party destination or even jump in to the West Rajasthan in some amazing resorts & why not try out some scintillating Pool parties?

New Pool wear..lovely shades..outright friends..Smooth Skin! Yes lady gorgeous ,you’re ready to dive in & have gala time.

2. Eye Catchy dress RIGHT NOW:

It’s the one you’ve had your eye on for ages. The one that will catch your crush’s eye, and make you feel FAB-U-LOUS! But what an epic fail if stubble stops you in your tracks. You can’t possibly wear it until you are super smooth. No need to worry, Braun epilators can remove hairs as small as a grain of sand. Get that new dress on, and cause a sensation GIRL!

3. Dancing & Enjoying with arms in Air :

Fun at the party. Favourite tune comes on. We’re flinging our arms in the air and dancing freely, but why do you plan to restrict yourself?  Smooth skin helps you take a smooth path to the smooth moves. GO NOW!

4. Park/Outdoor Visits:

Sunny days are coming soon! Wearing your shorts to the park on a warm sunny day at the end of the summer is one of life’s little wins. But only if your skin is silky smooth so you can be hot enough on that hot day!

 5. Rollercoaster time with absolute wowiee Pics:

What’s more exhilarating than flinging your arms in the air and shouting ‘whhheeeeeee’ from the top of the largest rollercoaster ride. Make sure you’re picture-perfect with super smooth pits.

6. Leg day at GYM:

It’s the perfect opportunity to impress your crush…but not if it’s an in-between day! Play it smooth. Braun epilators catch hairs 4x shorter than waxing, so you’ll never get caught out & have a legging day 🙂

7.Rocking your favourite short-sleeved Tee:

It’s the old favourite. The trusty tee that instantly makes you feel super confident. But only if your silky smooth skin plays a supporting role, then it’s a smooth path to a small boost! GO & WEAR your CONFIDENCE ON!

8.Those “Legfies”:

Sun? Having fun? Smooth legs? Legfie taken! Shared & yo…100 odd likes & comments..Whooo!

9. Sudden “Beach Invite”:

Gosh!It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. Your crush has FINALLY asked you to the beach. But, hold on, how can you rock your cut-offs with stubble? Get your skin smooth for the win!

10. That’s an Entry to the “Most awaited GIG”:

Your favourite band’s in town, and you’ve managed to get your hands on tickets FINALLY. YES! Worries? How to look LEG-endary? Wearing your favourite Skirt/Dress of course! And you’re ready to rock the look with super smooth legs. You’ve marked many there!

Believe on ,epilation is better than other traditional method of Hair Removal  like waxing , depilation cream, throw the tradition out & opt for the convenience, long lasting smoothness, pain-free life, from Braun , a subsidiary of P&G.

Grab “LikeMinded Friends” via Affimity.com

What comes to your mind in this age of Social media? Download FB, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Whatsapp & start conversing with your real friends/known list. But that craze suddenly dies post few months as the interactions on these mediums as FB/Twitter just decreases & gets restricted to the likes only. The reason is simple enough.. Since one is there in the friend list you ought to “Like” the post/feed most of the times without even reading or looking at the post !

The Dark Truth.. Our community is simply not a community of “Like minded people”, our posts/ feeds doesn’t generate a spark in their lives .

Desires are increasing , we all want hits & traffic , enhance the followers ,develop viewership, let our content freely flow & get appreciated by all, but then how to target among such huge crowd available on social media? With close to 2.5 billion Social network users across the globe, one cannot afford to let the community just GO!

And for this there has been an organic increase in the Specialised Social Networking sites ,who are focusing on very aptly merging of the business & personal space with the people of same interests. Why to connect to the world when there is so much content available on what you want to read & that too not by browsing but by simply catching onto the “Affinity social networking sites as “ affimity.com” .

You just need to love the people with like-mindedness, who have interests as you, who look forward to sharing their stories which can help you , who post questions on your forums & you can resolve their queries.

There’s so much of personalisation & connect ,that too without knowing each other, with simple reason – “Similar Interest”, Discover the lovely people out there just like you!

In past few years there has been lots of similar “Affinity networking apps” as LinkedIn ,which has focused mainly on career networking. Others as “Kulzy” is purely a platform for advertising & few others have some here & there with respect to the number of interest’s attached.

Affimity, here rather generates more interests due to wide variety of “Channels (basis interests)” available in their kitty ranging from Travel, Tech, Food, parenting, Sports, Beauty, Fitness wellness, Yoga & many more ..These channels keep coming from the funders basis the research & feedback of the addicts & social geeks out here.
