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

Life Span Booster

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. Well, it’s all the game of Dopamine besides the genetic factors. Dopamine, a hormone shows positive effect on life span and body weight of a human. Dopamine, mostly remembered as the

Greenery in Interiors

Have you come across any room or a house with some plants or other greenery inside? Well, I have been to a hotel today and its interiors included this component. The room had a small partition at its center and the top of it was made convenient for the arrangement of plants. The plants were kind of miniature or bonsai ones. By adding this to the interiors, beauty was a plus, but something else matters! The carbon-di-oxide released by those plants. Plants release oxygen only when they are exposed to sun light. All the other times, they are also going to be normal living things that take in oxygen and leave out carbon-di-oxide. This is the reason why we are not suggested to be near trees at night. So, we are just adding up some more temperature and pollution to our room for some beauty. I have seen some houses with rooms having a small lawn at the center. But, it was OK as most of them were in the presence of sun light by the arrangement of transparency to the ceiling. If you ar

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

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

Be Eco-friendly

Have you ever posed a question to yourself “Am I eco-friendly?” Well, I don’t ask you to stop driving your vehicles and ban the play of current in your house. But, yes! You could surely contribute to nature with certain amendments to your home. How many units of power do you use at your home daily? It deeply exploits the nature during its production. It shoots your current bill too! We are making the Earth almost vacant with all the mining that we do. Future generation are under a threat already. Why not we shift our focus to sun? Well, the idea is to follow Modi ji and start employing solar power for our utilities. It is a field that is showing rapid betterment. Researchers are depositing their full efforts to improve the life span of the panels. If some part of your roof is covered with few panels, it’s not going to make much difference or disrupt you right! Not actually, it does make a difference. Most of the power consumed is from the solar source, which cuts down your power bi
