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.

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

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

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
