Rahul (Anu Mallik), Anjali (Kajol) and Tina (Geeta Kapoor) from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai reunite on Comedy Dangal!










Geeta Kapoor, the queen of dance and one of the best female choreographers in Bollywood recently, joined Comedy Dangal team as celebrity guest for a special episode that pays tribute to women. Since the episode is a special dedication to all the ladies of the country, it is full of entertainment, drama and lots of spice. 





The show will see Anu Mallik and Bharti Singh team up to present a parody on Geeta Maa's debut movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai! While you will get to see Anu Mallik as the 'cool dude' that SRK portrayed - Rahul, Bharti as 'jhalli' Anjali will rock the stage. But the icing on the cake is Geeta Maa joining the duo as the 'sexy' Tina and showing them the moves on the song Koi Mil Gaya! And that's not all! 




Impressed by Surbhi Jyoti’s ichhadhari naagin and Rajesh Kumar’s sapera skit, Geeta Kapoor and Bharti Singh were compelled to join them on the stage to dance on the tunes of naagin song along with other ladies of the show. The ladies Bharti and Geeta also give the men a crash course in bargaining!


The masaledar episode turned into an emotional ride for Comedian Mubeen Saudagar who was surprised by the cast and crew of Comedy Dangal with his wife who is soon expecting a baby. Like a loving husband, Mubeen thanked his wife for all her support during his struggling days.

Give Wings to Your Child’s Creativity! #Creative #Imagination




                                                                                            Source


While surfing, I came across a beautiful project made by a lady. I loved her project and congratulated her for her creativity. But her reply dampened my mood.

She told me that she had made the school project of her child who was a student of Class I.

The project that she had prepared was not a match for a student of Class I. It was far ahead of his age.

I could not stop myself and I right away told her that her concept was not approachable…she should not do it…unconsciously she was clipping the creative wings of her child.

She told me that it was not possible for her child to prepare the project all by himself, so she made it.

I told her that it is nice to indulge in creativity and if she has inclination towards it, she should pursue wholeheartedly using her creative ideas to decorate her house, prepare gifts for special occasions or can also take up as professional commitment…but please don’t clip the wings of your child.

My intention was not to hurt her but to show her the right path.

I asked her to give her child the liberty to use his imagination in school projects and let him prepare the things all by himself.

This is not the story of one Mother…there are many Mothers who do the same.

Even in my neighbourhood and extended family, there are many parents who do the same.

I believe that in this way they are not helping their child rather blocking their imaginative power.

Whenever I come across such parents who spoon feed their children, I object to it firmly because I don’t approve this idea.

Through this post, I wish to request to all budding parents not to nip the creative ideas of your children.

Let them explore their ideas, this way their imagination power will improve and will give wings to creativity.

Children learn through trial n error and in this bid, they may scatter things around or may spoil the things, but they need that space to develop.

Always remember your childhood…once upon a time you too went through the same phase, so keep the patience with your kids.

Arrange the things required for the project and let them take the initiative, guide where they falter.

If you have inclination in creativity, pursue your own hobby and use it for yourself…don’t impose them on your kids.

If the project is far ahead of the child’s age then the teachers too understand that it is the parent’s skill and child does not receive due credit. 

Further other school children get discouraged if their work is not appreciated.

The child ability won’t develop then they will always be in a lookout for ready-made solution.

Parents…give fair chance to your child to soar high on their own ability.

My Experience:

One of my close relative spoon-fed their children and in school time, they achieved high marks in all subjects but later in life, they could not clear any competition. I had watched them closely. All the homework and school work was done by the parents and the kids mugged up. The school projects were either bought from market or made by parents. I too was a kid and watching them achieve feats of success in school, I grew envious of them n at times despised my parents for not helping. Later in life, I realized their parent’s mistakes and feel sorry for the children.
While raising my children, I did not repeat the mistakes that my relatives did. I accompanied them but never imposed my skills and the result is that I am satisfied with my children skills, few they have inherited from us and some they have developed on their own.


Mothers, Shower your love and affection but not at the stake of clipping their wings…Watch them soar heights…you will love to watch their achievements. 



Me Time! #FridayFotoFiction

friday-foto-fiction-photo-prompt-lady-reading

 

Since childhood, I was fond of reading and my shelves were stacked with different kinds of books and magazines and this reading habit gave birth to my writing skill.

My inner desire was to get my writings published giving shape to a novel.

Being the eldest of five, I was married off early and got totally engrossed in family life, managing kids, husband and household and could not take time out for myself.

After shouldering off my responsibilities, once again I diverted my attention towards my reading & writing habit.

I dusted the journals that I was carrying in my shelves and synchronized them and sent to various publishers to get it published.

Thankfully, one of the leading publishers of  Mumbai accepted my work and today I received the paperback of my publication.

I can't scribble my emotions in words...I am speechless.

ivape.in has helped over 1 million smokers quit Smoking! #HealthCare




August 2017: Mumbai based start-up ivape.in is a leading vaping brand in India. It was incorporated in 2014 with a vision to help people quit smoking and to ensure that vaping products are affordable and accessible to the Indian population.

Vaping is a term used to describe the inhaling and exhaling of vapor produced by an electronic battery-powered device which is a healthier alternative to smoking the hazardous cigarettes.

There are approximately 108 million smokers in India; tobacco is the second highest cause of disability, WHO also calls tobacco a gradual killer. Many addicts are looking for a healthier option and ivape.in has helped over 1 million smokers switch to vaping.


Speaking on the occasion Nilesh Jain, Founder, ivape.in said, “There is very little awareness about vaping as a cleaner alternative. At ivape.in, it is our endeavor to help smokers quit tobacco out of will and not compulsion. We use only FDA approved flavors in our e-liquids which are meticulously handcrafted at our ISO 9001 certified manufacturing unit.”
Since inception, ivape.in witnessed a month-on-month sales revenue growth of 10-15 percent. And being a pioneer in India’s vaping industry, ivape.in aims to create a widespread awareness about vaping to help the millions of tobacco addicts in India.
Smoking versus Vaping:

In India, the government is skeptical about legalizing vaping. However studies in the west show that vaping is 95 percent less harmful than smoking tobacco based cigarette. Recently in the US,The Food and Drug Administration announced a road-map to reduce deaths from tobacco, and tobacco-related disease. According to the body, more than 480,000 deaths in the US are caused by tobacco every year. The FDA in the United States wants people to switch to a healthier alternative like vaping.  The greatest health hazard of cigarettes is the smoke that it produces, it also contains harmful chemicals like cyanide, carbon monoxide and methanol. These primarily affect the heart and arteries.  Vaping doesn’t not contain any of the harmful chemicals, experts also believe that through vaping the physiological need of nicotine reduces as body undergoes a, weaning-off effect. Vaping also doesn’t leave the foul smell and taste of burnt tobacco.

How to make an introvert child more friendly? #MommyMoments






Parenting is a skill and it requires lots of patience & perseverance on the part of parents while addressing kids. Each child is unique in its own way and accordingly the parents need to take care of them…


Some are outspoken, fearless and daring and they require less guidance while some are shy and meek and they need more attention from parents.

If you see around, you will find kids of one set of parents are quite different in personality though they are brought up in same atmosphere been given same privileges and comfort…Their characteristics and vital statistics vary because each kid perceive things differently…so it is the duty of the parents especially the Moms to unearth their kids potential and weakness and deal them accordingly.

In my childhood days, I was a mixture of both; some knew me as Introvert while others knew me as a full package of life and vigor and over Extrovert.

I myself don’t know the reason of such dual personality. In our times, parents were loaded with so much of responsibilities that they did not had enough time to spare to delve into such fine details. They had the huge responsibility of extended families, five children and looking after the house.


Still, I am a pack of both but certainly, I pulled myself out of the shell with passing years and now, I am introvert where I choose to be…it’s my choice else I am extrovert, ready to pour my ideas and beliefs and even give sermon where required.

I know that been over introvert mars the personality and at times, we lose best opportunities…though my been introvert rewarded me with writing skills because whenever thoughts gushed inside me, I poured it raw on the journal and this was my bright side and today I am a gainer choosing blogging as my profession…my been introvert made me Creative.

In our time, we did not had so many gadgets…we had limited choice…either to play in the playground…indulge in some creativity or study…but the scenario of today is quite different.

Children of today are hooked to gadgets, as today’s children have access to multiple gadgets and if they are left alone, it will hamper their personality.
Parents needs to be vigilant so that the personality of kids are not at stake.

Parenting Tips:

1.If your child is dull and don’t want to mingle with the kids of their age group, he needs your attention. Rule out the reason for this behavior and encourage them to be active and participate in group activity.

2. Find out their field of interest and encourage them to participate fully.
Have open discussions with your kids and inquire if something is bothering them. At times, children don’t open up because of some unknown fear or inadequate knowledge.

3. Invite them in your living room when some guests visit your house and introduce them to your guests, gradually he will develop habit of conversing with strangers and it will boost their personality.

4. Encourage them to participate in social activity and give them liberty to arrange special programs on festivals and special occasions…it will add creativity in them.

5. Take them along when you visit your family and friends, at times, they may be reluctant but slowly it will interest them.

6. Fix hours of watching TV and playing games on Computer because these activities nips the creativity and imaginative skills of a child.

7. If he is more interested in extracurricular activities, encourage them to indulge. Study is important but they need assistance in carving a niche in their field of interest. Discouragement too make kids introvert.

8. Don’t leave them alone for long hours…keep a watch on their activities.
Time to time, try to find out about the activities of your child at school or with friends, it will help you to know how he is performing with others.

9. Keep a silent vigil on your child’s movements. All things should not be pronounced especially when your kids is approaching teens as they are quite vulnerable at this age and they need utmost care.

What I did as a Parent?

While raising my kids, I followed their movements silently. I involved them in all extra-curricular activities and in celebrations.

Brushed their skills and encouraged them to polish their areas of interest.

Never bullied them in front of other family members, friends or neighbors.

Whenever I found their energy levels low, I sat down with them and discussed openly what was bothering them.


These tips encouraged them to come out of their shell and enhanced their personality.

Gujarat welcomes Madhya Pradesh to experience the many hues of tourism!




Tourism Corporation Of Gujarat Limited holds special road show in Madhya Pradesh to promote tourism.





August 26, Indore: On Saturday, a motley crowd watched in awe as a presentation unfolded before it portraying the rich culture and heritage of the picturesque state of Gujarat. The presentation was a part of a special Road Show organised by the Tourism Corporation of Gujarat Limited (TCGL) at Indore in Madhya Pradesh to promote Gujarat as a splendid tourist destination.







The audience mainly consisted of travel agents from Madhya Pradesh with whom TCGL is looking at forging ties to showcase the best of Gujarat to the people of Madhya Pradesh. Shri. Jenu Devan, Managing Director and Commissioner of Tourism, Tourism Corporation of Gujarat Limited took the travel agents through the presentation that elucidated the eclectic offerings of Gujarat in terms of its culture, traditions, music, tourist spots, its treasure trove of artefacts and handicrafts and much more. This is the first time that Gujarat is visiting Madhya Pradesh and is looking at building a bond with the latter by inviting its people over to visit and experience the state’s inimitable tourism. The idea of inviting travel agents for the Road Show was to join hands with them and leverage the relations to carry out diverse exchanges between the two states.





Talking about the unique Road Show, Shri Devan, said, “We are extremely happy to be in Madhya Pradesh and connect with the people here. This is the first time Gujarat is visiting MP but we are hoping that we will be able to build long lasting relations between the two states. I would like to invite the people from Madhya Pradesh to witness and enjoy the beauty of Gujarat, its cuisines, its art and culture, tourist spots, its many fairs and festivals and everything else that the state has to offer. This Road Show is mainly to reach out to travel agents here and work out opportunities to promote Gujarat tourism. Together we can build some excellent exchange between the two states.”


Hordes of tourists from Madhya Pradesh are known to visit Gujarat every year. This year, the number of tourists from Madhya Pradesh was a whopping 18 lakh and the figure is expected to grow exponentially. In fact, in recent years, Gujarat has become one of the most popular destinations in India. Over 400 lakh tourists visited the state from within India this year –a 17% rise from the previous year. Similarly, a record number of NRIs and foreigners –a total of 10 lakh – visited the state this year making it the highest number in the last decade.



Gujarat’s versatile fairs and festivals are already known to be huge crowd pullers. The annual Saputaramonsoon festival (13 August to 10 September, 2017), Tarnetar fair (24 to 27August, 2017), Navratri Festival (21 to 29 September 2017), the Rann Utsav (1st November, 2017 to 28th February, 2018) and the International kite festival (7 to 15January, 2018) are some of the many colourful events that draw tourists from across India and abroad.


The State Government gives tourists the chance to experience local culture at its best by offering the most earthy accommodation option – that of homestays. Homestays are known to provide the comfort of a home with all the facilities and an opportunity to eat authentic local food and interact with incredible locals. Besides, there are also several luxury hotels in the state that provides hospitality services.

Wish I could Rewind the Clock! #WOW

 

 

 

Yes…I wish  to go back and revisit those moments where I brimmed with innocence and never knew what envy or pride was. I could laugh out easily on the silly jokes and play pranks on friends and family without any guilt.

I questioned few of my friends that if they get a chance to revisit the past, what will they do?

Most of them wanted to change their past as they are hanging out with regrets.

I asked myself, what I will do if I get a chance to revisit the lanes of the past that I left back 25 years before.

I ransacked my brain and concluded that there is no inclination to change anything about the past rather I was a more a happy soul 25 years back where I did not care about the status of my friends or neighbours nor I was worried about boasting my status in society.

I was in my real self and enjoyed full freedom of expression. I did not had to wear any mask in those days like today. Wherever I go, I tread with my mask which changes in different situations so I possess numerous masks and it has become a habit that I have forgotten who am I in reality…I have lost my identity.

These worldly overtures has snatched my innocence and has loaded me with guns of envy, distrust and pride, making me aggressive and ever ready to compete with my near and dear ones…my mind always been at loggerheads.

All my healthiest possessions are lost.

In my early days of life, I was more caring and sharing but now maturity has jeopardized my mind, even if my conscience is ready to care the needy, my ego fights with me and asks me what the other has done for me.

When I was in my younger self, I never weighed down the pros and cons but now I am ever ready to weigh down each and every relationships on the scales…I am no more my real self. The world has polluted my mind and infected my souls with jealousy, false pride, and distrust and believes more in boasting.

I don’t have any regrets for the past rather I wish to change my present self. I want to shed down the scales that have encroached my real identity and laugh out loud.

I wish to delve deep into the past and bring my innocence back and the faith that I had for the people around and once again, I wish to see the world with the naïve eyes of my younger self.

Wish, I could turn the clock back.
