Love of life

Surely, everyone finds a love of life, may be someone or something. I did find too! Yes, the perfect love for me. I would like to confess my love openly.   I know you since the first day of my life. You never left me even a single day. So selfless that you never expected anything from me, always given me peace of mind, relaxation, gave a virtual life to my imaginations and what not. When I travelled to other places, you accompanied me. When I left home for the first time and came to hostel, you were with me. May be you are not with me every moment, but you did every day. You never knew, I can be with you 24 hours a day! I look crazy to others when I spend 18 hours a day with you. I only say, they should have fate to feel you. They never knew what I experienced. And do you know dear, you are the first to come into my mind whenever I am in a boring class. I don’t know why every lecturer reminds you! You are the first that crosses my thoughts when I have to travel. If it’s a holid

When The Night Returns...

May be officially called night owls, many people fall into the category of night life. A lazy and drowsy day goes by when we actually intend to sleep and try to open our eyes to little things like lunch and snacks. Being awake and totally “present” during the morning hours proves to be challenging. At times, falling asleep in the class is also a part of their curriculum. The day may start at time probably before 5 P.M or may not have ended since the previous night. Well, night lifers take their active side out when their loving hours of night return to them. They become the most active persons on earth. The pleasant moon gives them the sun light needed. They rise to the fullest potential and squeeze out the creativity of their brain to sort out the issues. Not lazy any more, the pending work gets accomplished in a very short span of time. Probably, night lifers encourage everyone to have a night life beyond sleeping. There exist also some scientific proofs that night lifers are

The Old New

Seems confusing right! Is it old or new that I am talking about? Well, it’s my old hostel room. But returning to it after a span of two and a half months is making it kind of new to me. Any way, I understood that my room didn’t feel lonely or didn’t miss me only after entering the room. It got a great company! A grape size spider (probably the head of the family) with its family stayed in my room with the company of their food. I gave them a permanent send off after one hour of hard work. Then appeared the real problem! I am almost the only one in my floor. And then came the bats to say a “hi” and “good evening” to me. I had to bend my head down and run away in respect. But thank God! No lizard turned up. They love me so much! Finally done with all this, feeling thirsty I went to get some water. And it tasted like heaven! I couldn’t even take it down my throat after being accustomed to mineral water all these days. May be a day more and I will adapt myself to the surroundings.

Teen's Room

Every parent is at an urge to provide the best to their children, both at the phases of childhood and teenage. Well, that’s absolutely fine. But, a small request to all the parents. You will have to keep in mind to provide what your children actually need. A post came up in the past dealing with all the requirements and facilities to be provided in your kid’s room. But let’s throw some light on how the room should be for your grown up kid to be a teen. Here you go. Get your teen’s room ready in the way that steals their heart. This could probably be the best present to your teen. The bed could be a simple one with a full foam mattress. The table should be a bigger one that can accommodate their personal computer or laptop along with a pen stand and other articles like books and stuff. A study lamp is a must. The room should painted with light and pleasant colours with one of the walls having an attractive design at the centre of which some space should be available for placi

Furniture Or Grass?

Having a dream house with elegant look is great. In fact every one wants to own a dream home and comfort themselves in it for the rest of their life. And people figure out a lot of complications to make their house seem awesome. Different appeals are tried out to make the house interesting and make it a good experience to the family. Besides all this, having good privacy in the house is equally important right! Most of the individuals prefer strangers and some guests not to enter their house as it may disturb their privacy or spoil the cleanliness. A small meeting room just before entering the hall is a great option. But, the lawn sitting arrangement is the trend now! A table with few chairs or benches around covered by temporary roofs is the arrangement being preferred for visitors now. The point of interest is that this furniture is not the typical type of furniture found inside the houses. All what you could see is a small place to sit and the rest is covered with greene

The Antilia

Never heard of this? The name seems fascinating right! It is the name of the residence of Mukesh Ambani who is the Chairman of Reliance Industries. After seeing this you can expect the house to be greatly expensive. It is situated in South Mumbai, one of the India’s metropolitan. Antilia is a 27 storey building with higher ceilings that not just depicts beauty but also spaciousness. If the same height was to be utilized to create a building with ordinary ceiling height, it could accommodate 60 floors!  As per the surveys from November 2014, Antilia is the World’s most expensive private residential property. If not just the private list, it stands second. Its value can be approximated to about 1 billion dollars. Also, Antilia is strong enough to handle 8-Richter scale earth quake.  Biggest concern!

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

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? If everything goes by our aspiration, its happiness all over right! She had a speed breaker after her second year. The great eve of life, wedding! Her opinion was asked and a general answer “I will marry after my studies” was given. Of course, the reply also was a routine “you can do it after marriage”. Then was the time for her to keep quiet and accept the decisions that everyone around took for her. The silent g

The Teddies!

Majority of folks devoid of age concern are great fans of these teddies and barbies. Well, you could be one. I join the club too! It is exciting to know the existence of fan clubs for these. Why all this discussion? At this point, you need to question yourself. Are these just for play purpose? If your answer is no, then you are on the right channel. These toys could add up a great quotient to the score of the interiors of your house. In fact, this is what done in our house. I had a collection of barbies and teddies in my childhood. Like most, I don’t play with them much at present. I never expected these toys to be the interiors of my room! The corners were arranged with a glass of semi circular shape over which my teddies sit. Another akin glass piece with all my barbies cooking is arranged in opposite corner. Well, my room looks like the class room of a kinder garden! Of course, I like it. The environment is very creative in the room. I think this is the reason why kinder gar

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

Twinkling stars

Each of us has their own plan for their dream home and the bed room. But most of them would be a part of routine ideas. But I have got this crazy idea when I was sitting on the terrace of my house today evening.  Well, as a contribution to the World Environment Day, we decided to switch off the power supply for some time and all of us were on the terrace. It was dark already, and we stayed there enjoying the dark sky with the little stars twinkling here and there in the sky like some fish in a lake! It was a great relaxation and we returned after an hour or so. It was really a great experience and the initiative was also good. What if we have this beautiful view that never allows you to take your eye off it every day by the time you sleep? You got me right! A house on the top floor and the bed room with a transparent ceiling is all what you need. Entire ceiling need not be transparent but a part of it also renders the experience of the scenic sight. Just as you lie on bed, befor

Why Pre-launch?

When you want to buy a house, you have to select one. Many questions arise in the selection. Of course we are not bothered about all of them. Let’s narrow ourselves whether to select a ready to occupy house or a pre- launch one. Well, though there are only two choices, you need to consider good number of factors in making a choice. First question to pose for yourself is “Is it an emergency to shift to a new house?” if the answer is yes, you know what to do! But if not, most preferable option is a pre- launch one. Why? You may have a plan for all the amenities in your own house. If it is ready to occupy, some of the amendments that you need in your dream home may not be possible. Works like painting, furnishing the house as per your choice you be possible only with a pre-launch or under construction house. Setting interiors of your preference making necessary arrangements would be easy. Especially, cleaning is a major advantage! Once all the work is done, cleaning before you shift t

Kitchen Sketch

It’s no more the time for the stale old types of techniques in the kitchen. May be a new house or a one in which already you are living, modern kitchen stands as a prime requirement right! May be a small family or a joint one or a single occupancy in a house, you need to cook food and it requires a kitchen. Well, great mechanical advantage is derived with the implementation of modern kitchen techniques. Getting deeper into physics! It also reduces the necessity of manual labor. Modern kitchen includes amenities like modular kitchen which includes a drawer for the food wrap, crockery and others separately. This provides easy access to corners. 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

Gated Communities

Have you ever tried categorizing the houses? If we are to partly split the houses into two types, it could be gated communities which include houses of may be similar type grouped together and the other is ordinary ones which include independent houses, apartments and all other kinds. Well, it could be a personal opinion in making a choice in the above for you. But, if we are to compare all the aspects in facilities and comforts, we can come to a conclusion that gated communities serve good. Typically, land owners would prefer building an independent house in their land. Looking at the advantages of gated communities is surely going to change your mind. Not just independent houses, but apartments are also a part of some of the gated communities. City of Gold plan Good facilities of security are provided that may be expensive or unavailable in other houses.

Once you are done with making the choice of the colors, you can go ahead! But, opting the colors is not going to be your left hand game.

The Horticulture Show

       If you are a lover of nature or flowers, seeing the word horticulture flashes good imagination of beautiful plants and colorful flowers. Well, I visited a horticulture show in the morning, arranged by the Department of horticulture of the state government. The models of the equipment and arrangements for growing plants in green house as well as in pots were exhibited. In addition to this, volunteers over there helped the visitors to understand the techniques required to grow all types of plants at home. The extra ingredient required at home was a little compost. This show was accompanied by a mango festival. The smell itself attracted buyers! Moreover, they were organic fruits. Over there, techniques for growing organic fruits and vegetables at home were also explained.        If you own a house, you are not going to leave it without at least some plants right! Growing the plants using these horticulture and organic procedures will be a great one. Find the best practices fo
