Product review:  I am very careful about my hair and take extra to maintain my shiny and bouncy crowning glory. Two decades before, I had long and silky hair without any damaged hair. But with time, pregnancy, childbirth and age, hair has lost the original shine though it is silky. Even, I cut my hair to shoulder length due to job and time constraints. I use henna to color my grey hairs. I am very choosy about hair products and use only authentic products. I received Argan Hair Mask from Mamaearth. I took advice from the gals who used before and they convinced me about the product.
Initially, I used the mask in my shampooed hair. I moistened my hair and applied generously from roots to the ends and left for 20 minutes. The best thing is that it absorbs into the hair and scalp so there is no issue of dripping and mess. I washed off with sufficient water to remove the mask and I was surprised to see the result on my crowning glory. Generally, I don’t use creamy products after shampoo and in the beginning, I had the inhibition that it might leave hair oily. But my inhibition proved wrong, my hair came out smooth, manageable and silky with added sheen. After that I am using it as a conditioner and it works well and enriches the sheen & volume of hair.

My sisters used this product and was convinced with the usage and has said that they will be constant user of “Argan Hair Mask toReduce Hair Fall”.

I have applied four times in 21 days and I am contented with the positive result. I highly recommend this product to women of all age groups.

Use it generously and see the result for yourself and I am sure you will thank me for this good stuff.

Pros: The product claim is very true and after its use, it leaves the hair soft, silky and manageable. It will be a good bet especially for the frizzy and brittle hairs. The hair treatment with this mask reduces hair fall, split ends and repairs damaged hair. It thoroughly cleanses the scalp and it is very soothing.

Cons: Only a Price is a bit high but it’s worth the penny.

My rating: 4.8/5

Colors have great significance in our lives. It plays an important role in our life and it acts as a stimulator. It stimulates our mind and enhances our mood.When you spot a rainbow after rain, however gloomy you are, you feel happy to spot it and it’s comforting to gaze at or capture in our mobiles. The amalgamation of seven colors is serene to look at and it gives positive vibes…so are the different colors…some have positive vibes and few have negative vibes.The different colors have different significance in different cultures and traditions and its choice depends upon varied parameters. For instance, Red hue will be best for the bridal wear but the same hue would not be suitable for an old woman. Shades of white will look graceful & elegant in elderly ladies but it won’t be suitable for brides. So the choice depends upon person, place, occasion, space etc.It’s easy to zero in apparels but it is a herculean task to decide the colors for the home space and interiors, workplace and commercial outlets. Pantone TPG Color Guide will help in your choice.

There are primary colors and indefinite number of shades are obtained from these basic primary colors, Red, Blue & Yellow.The choice of colors reflects the personality of an individual because each color reacts with the brain and how an individual perceive it. Based on the theory of reactions and perceptions, the Egyptians and the Chinese uses colors to heal and this process is called chromo therapy. This therapy is used to cure psychological diseases and the studies have proved that it has positive influence on the person.Nowadays people are more concerned about the usage of the colors in their bedroom space, office cabin and so on and believe that it controls fatigue and stress.Two three decades before, people were not so concerned about the colors of their home or office and basically, it was painted to give a clean look but today, the situation is entirely different.

Why we need Designers?

Innumerable shades can be obtained by mixing the primary, secondary and tertiary colors and one has to do detailed study to bring out the real effect of colors. It can’t be picked up randomly. The virtual medium and the graphics has made the task easy for the designers to create, recreate and amalgamate, giving birth to new hues. Proper combination of colors enhances the look of spaces and gives a new & elegant look. The size of the spaces can be narrowed or broadened by the use of appropriate colors creating optical illusions. The dark areas are colored with light colors whereas the sunlit areas are painted with dark colors.The color compatibility depends upon various factors such as age, direction, individual choice, personality, upholstery, furniture, artistry, sunlight etc. Nowadays people decide on the basis of their sun signs and birth dates.The designers work on the usage & purpose of the space, location of the space and the user of the space and accordingly combines colors.Designers work hard to create color tone as per the demand of the customers keeping in mind the choice of customers. It needs a careful planning and its implementation in a right way and in right proportion. Over usage of colors will mar the look of the space. The colors used on the wall surface and roof should complement.It is a daunting task and it has to be given utmost importance in selection of colors. The choice of colors also differs on geographical locations, weather and climate of a certain place. A careful planning will give a svelte & extravagant ambiance to the spaces.There are specific colors associated with different institutions such as in hospitals, generally shades of white, blue and light green is used. It is believed that these colors have soothing effect on the patients.Bright colors are used for children, cool colors for elderly, warm and radiant colors for young age.Designers need to have perfect knowledge of Color psychology and the symbolic definition of a specific color.Practical testing of colors is an integral part while deciding colors for spaces. At times, the colors that look attractive in photographs, do not appear the same on the surface.A Designer with good knowledge and practical experience need to be employed to work with perfection and the usage of Pantone graphics will give a picturesque look to the interiors of the spaces.

Colour Psychology: 

Just imagine if the world around was painted in one color or the veggies & fruits were all of the same hues…life would have been monotonous & boring.The colors around us breaks the monotony and infuse positive vibes in our life. The colorful flora & fauna spices our life and the mood and emotions too are governed by the colors.The red board on the road depicts symbol of Stop, green color symbolizes Nature, yellow color symbolizes ripe and so on and many times non-verbal communication takes place on the basis of colors around.

Parenting Journey! #Parenting #MMM

The journey of Motherhood was very satiating and each moments were so captivating that I don’t wish to change anything.

Why I don’t wish to Change?

There are valid reasons.

Stress & Fatigue: The time I gave birth to my cutie pies, I was very young and sturdy and no amount of stress tired me rather it energized me. If I go through once again, I will not able to cope up with the stress & fatigue of a Motherhood.

Impatient with Age: I was careless when I got married but as I conceived, I was transformed with lots of patience. I enjoyed their tantrums rather getting exhausted and never lost temper…no shouting…no yelling…no beating. I silently accepted their mistakes, follies etc. Now, I can’t control my temperament and get irritated easily and I hold growing age is the factor responsible for being impatient & irritable.

 Enjoyed Cooking & Creating things for them: Now, I want them to help me in my chores and create ideas for my blogging. I am in no shape to restart the journey of parenting. Still I love to cook & bake for them but can't figure myself running after kids to feed them.

Satisfied with my journey: I am totally satisfied with my parenting journey and don’t wish to alter a single block of it because the consequence of my parenting proved rewarding and watching my big boys fills me with confidence and pride. If I restart, I may not give my best what I gave to my kids.

I did not missed as such something very important to think of restarting the parenting journey but certainly, I look forward to enjoy the bliss of grand motherhood and would love to indulge with them.

I missed capturing the beautiful moments in my mobile as camera wasn’t as handy as mobile is and making videos and short movies via Handycam, so would love to capture them when I am blessed with grandkids.

I am fully contended with my parenting journey and would not like to modify anything.

I am proud of my boys for what they are and they are the rewards of my nurture.

Happy Memories! #Motherhood!

The word, “Motherhood” brings lots of memories with it and I believe those are the happiest moments of life in the life of a woman. The journey isn’t easy rather it is a roller coaster ride but we face the upheavals of motherhood with smiles on.

The day pregnancy test comes positive, she jumps with joy and start weaving dreams about the life that she is carrying the womb. She faces lots of mental and health traumas but she bears all happily just for the sake of her flesh. During those nine months, her dreams revolve around her baby and watches her movement and kicks within. She readily accepts the bodily changes with each month.

She undergoes nerve wracking pain to give birth but the cry of a baby soothes her pain and she is overjoyed to see the face whom she nurtured with her blood.

She treasures each moment of motherhood capturing in her albums, notebook, tape recorder and in her treasure box.

She notices each small movement with joy and she is overwhelmed to watch baby growing with each month.

My boys have outgrown my lap but still the memories of motherhood are intact and fresh and I cherish those memories to keep myself happy. Those are the precious treasures of my life and with each moment, number of stories unfold and it feels as if it is the incident of yesterday.

Two decades before, there was dearth of digital media but the Kodak camera and scrapbook came to my rescue to store those moments of life.

Camera: I am fond of photography since childhood. When my baby was born, I kept the camera in my purse and captured each moments into it. In those days, we had to take prints of the captures so tried to finish the reel in one go as it was difficult to wait for long. There was curiosity to see them and stick into the albums. So all memories of my motherhood was captured by Kodak camera and several albums are stacked in the shelf. Whenever, I feel lonely, I spend time with the albums. Now I have started scanning them to preserve in my laptop, because the snaps are losing its sheen in albums.

Scrapbook: I maintained a scrapbook in which I jotted down my feelings from the day of conceive till they passed the boards. All the results, moments of pride when they won contest etc. are preserved in it. When I read them, I feel as if my kids are around and memories are refreshed.

Laptop: Since few years, I started scanning the snaps and maintaining a folder of each year of my boys. Whenever, I miss them, I go through them to recollect memories of the past.

Treasure Box: holds their small clothes, the first that they wore and of many other important occasions. They even hold their toys on which they were not able to try their engineering, certificates of achievement nicely stacked in files. It hold the small joys of life.

Tape Recorder: The first word they spoke, the first sentence they learned was earlier stored in audio-cassettes, which is now segregated in CD’s. Their cute baby talks evokes positive vibes within me and in my empty nest, I hear again n again to bring back the reminiscences of the golden days.

Lots and lots of memories of Motherhood is stored in my heart and it will always be intact till the last breath of my life.

The best thing that happens to a woman is Motherhood and it fills her with unconditional love and affection.

Maa, I won't Bear? #Domesticviolence


“Thud Thud…Thud” and the sobs followed.

It wasn’t a one day affair…It happened every day.

I was just Seven, so couldn’t predict what went behind the scene but was sure that whatever went on was not justified…her sobs confirmed.

One day, I mustered courage to peep through the keyhole to know what occurred behind the doors and how everything seemed smooth after an hour or so.

The scene behind the door was fierce and I could not lay my eyes on them….He was literally a brute.

He beat her up with his leather belt, whipping hard on her with every strokes and she lied helpless on the floor.

He removed the sari that draped her fragile body and hit her hard on her delicate parts.

I was shivering with fear…He is a beast…he can’t be my father.

I ran to my granny and told her the sequence that I watched through. She was cool.

“It happens Baby. Your mother might have disobeyed your father.”

“Dadi…what are you saying? Go and see, how that beast is whipping belt on her skin.” I literally howled at her.

“It’s new for you…not for me. Your mother has leverage that she can take few decisions…accompany your father on tour. My life was much worst, dear…but till date, no one knows of it. I didn’t ever complain to my Mother because her life was not better than mine. I was beaten if I disobeyed your Baba but my Mother was confined in room for days without food if she couldn’t manage the things on time. Baby, it’s our fate. We are born to be in captive and it’s necessary else the girls will go astray and not accommodate with their husbands and in-laws. She needs to be in strict guardianship before and after marriage.” Dadi said nonchalantly.

I was sobbing hard.

“Dadi, how can you be so callous? It is not necessary that if you were abused, my Mother should meet the same fate…You and your son both are beasts.” I said.

A strong hand overpowered me and yelled on top of his voice.

“You need worse treatment than your mother…at this age, your pitch is so high. What will you do after marriage? You need severe punishment.” My father said fiercely.

The fragile hands wrapped me in her arms and requested him to overlook my faults, giving me a chance to improve.

“Please forgive her. She is naive and innocent. I will make her understand.” She pleaded sobbingly.

Silently, I walked to my room.

The words of my mother eroded my confidence in her. She too believes like Dadi…she is no better.

I was only seven but these harrowing experience at home had made me more matured than my age.

I could see my future bleak.

“Maa…instead of stopping father, you said that I will be checked. I can’t endure these miseries. I saw today how that Man whom you call your husband treats you. Even you shouldn’t bear…leave this house forever.”

“No, Baby…don’t say like this, now my dead body will leave this house. Though he is cruel and wild at times but still I can’t disregard him. Our parents taught us.” Maa said with a blank look.

Years passed but the situation remained more or less the same.

I was twenty now.

I had vowed that I won’t accept arranged alliance of my parents rather will choose my life partner and talk to him over the points of adjustments before getting hitched.

One day, my senior proposed me.

I rolled out my points and said that if he agreed then I will go steady with him and get hitched when he comes into job.

Two years passed smoothly without any disagreements.

One day, he saw me with my class mate in market and was ferocious over phone and said so many things which were not required.

I disconnected the line bidding him good bye forever.

I didn’t want a life like my mother and granny.

I am thirty now and waiting for a suitable alliance.

I need a man in my life but not at the cost of my self-esteem.

( The tit bits that goes around.)
