Hilly Terrain

Out on a holiday with my family for five days, we visited a hill station. We had to reside in a guest house over there. The house could be an aspiring destination for many. A small parking slot in front of the house that accommodates 3-4 cars with a cute garden at its center holding the touch me nots in it. It’s a great fun playing with these touch me not plants. As we enter, the drawing room makes way to the dining and the bed rooms. The steps at one corner lead us to other bed rooms on the next floor. All this is just one side of the coin. The best part is the environment and nature. The rainy season showed its presence from time to time. Standing at the window, the rain sprinkling some droplets of water on your face followed by the cool breeze with not so bright view but hills overlapping each other will never let you move away from the window. Moving on to the loggia, your sight will be filled with the pine trees grown very long behind which traces of hill tops wave their h

Too obsessed with “fitness”? Well, relax! Sit back and think for a little while... how many posts and news have you read regarding fitness, exercise, health, life span and stuff in the past one week? Surely, the number is pretty good with everyone. Not to worry, you are on the right track. The prime mandate of life is health and for that of health is fitness. I know everyone wants a longer life (Hey, I join the list too!) I heard many saying “keep yourself fit, it helps you live longer” But many never mind them, for everyone needs a ‘scientific proof’.       Fine then, it’s time for everyone to believe that. Scientists from University of Buffalo have come up with the result of their research in the dependence of exercise on lifespan. They put forth some exciting things that may tempt you to exercise.

Is this happening at your home?

And finally the time has come for her to be accredited as a “successful home maker”. Yes, a successful daughter, wife and a mother in her long journey of 45 years till date. She started off with her BA literature, a degree considered a great one at those times. Well, that was her interest! Her parents and family was her hill of support and her fascination to the subject lead her to a success with 70% in her first and second years. Dreaming of a career in literary aspects, she wanted to pursue her masters in the same subject. How could everything be so simple in life?

Smart Phone

I have seen numerous articles on advantages of smart phone. Today, not having any work, I sat with my smart phone thinking of its use to me. Well, my mother gave a use “This is what you us to chat with people”. Of course, right! I just varied my thought to an alternate direction. Eventually I started smiling and ended up laughing. Want to know the reason? It’s the advantages of my smart phone! It is the best paper weight on my study table. This is what I do when I study and obviously this is what distracts me! If you are not at home or a long way off the mirror, your phone is your mirror. If you have a protective case for your phone, it is going to be a wallet too. Yes! I always place money in the phone case instead of carrying a purse. And this is why I spoil my phone case too! Another advantage with the case. If you are really angry, you have nothing around and have enough trust on your phone that it won’t break, you can show your anger on it. It can be used as a support for writ

Anger Room

A typical home consists of bed rooms, dining, kitchen, drawing room etc. Well, all these are sufficient to meet the regular necessities. Then why a concept of a room called anger room? We are common people and may not be able to control our anger sometimes. We don’t even know what is rolling out of our mouth at that time. Those words may be hurting for some. Some may even feel offended by them! To avoid such situations, please don’t get angry. Well, this is something not feasible right! This is the reason why an anger room is necessary. Whenever you get angry, just get out of the place and go to that room. And the room should be supporting. It should be sketched with some peace quotes, light and soothing colors and pleasant interiors. The room should allow you to do your favorite thing so that your blood pressure goes down. If you want to know the advantages, there are many. Firstly, the peace of your home is not disturbed. Your relationship with the people around is maintained. Y

If it’s a joint family, one TV may not meet the needs of everyone. But if it’s more than that or if you have more number of TVs’ being a small family, disadvantages are a complimentary! If you are rich enough to accommodate a TV in each room, it’s good. But, if that’s the case, everyone would prefer to sit in their own room with their own gadgets. If you live without any i

A chimney at the top of the stove that absorbs up the heat produced during cooking. A good ventilation facility with at least one window in the kitchen is a necessity. An arrangement for movement between kitchen and dining would be good. A place preferably at the corner fixed for mixer, grinder, juicer etc. Tiling for the side walls for a mi

Imagination has no bounds. Let your feet touch the ground when your mind’s eye sees the sky. It is legitimate to fix your targets and aim high.
