Go Natural

Today we have medicines for everything. Right from a simple headache to a major health issue. We have become so addicted to pills that we tend to have pain killers very often. We have forgot natural remedies used by our ancestors. These home remedies are very useful and also saves us ftrom being slaves to these pills.

Today I’m come with some interesting home remedies for Back pain

• Mix salt in Ginger juice and massage your back.

• Massage back with hot olive oil (always use hot oil for massage, it is very effective)

• Clove oil massage

• ½ teaspoon Ajwain and ½ teaspoon Jaggery to be chewed well twice a day. If back pain is very severe then increase the quantity to 1 teaspoon each.

Alumni 2016

image

24th July 2016 – this was the day I waited for the most. And why shouldn’t I ? After all it was our alumni day. The department had organized everything so well. Right from welcoming us to seeing us off 🙂

As soon as I got out of the elevator I got a warm welcome from Vinay Sir, who was all set to give me a warm hug 🙂 He walked us to the auditoriam. I never knew a single person there except for my best friend Brinda and Vidya Ma’am. Though people around were strangers, the place made me feel at home. The programme was arranged in room no. 35, the same class where I started my degree college journey. I remembered the 1st day 1st lecture and I was late as usual 🙂 it was Vidya Ma’am’s lecture. 2nd lecture was Dongare Sir’s lecture, I can never forget that lecture because my phone rang in between the lecture and Sir thought I was playing a prank on him so he confiscated my phone. Actually it was no prank my brother had messaged me to say eat something from the canteen as I had forgotten my tiffen at home. My mistake was just that I forgot to put my phone on silent. I was so timid by nature that I couldn’t even imagine of playing pranks on anyone and especially on professors ? Hehe God save me 🙂

About Vidya Ma’am I must say she’s a wonderful lady. She’s calm and patient. She can handle any situation with calmness. Anyone who sees her will forget all his stress. You get so much of positive vibes from her. She has a calm look with a sweet smile; truly BEAUTIFUL and GORGEOUS. 🙂

Anyways coming back to the alumni, it was selfie time. Brinda and I took so many selfies together. About Brinda I don’t know what all to say because if I start writing about us the blog will never end. 🙂 She’s my best of best bestest friend. I know bestest is no word but our friendship too is unique. Right from 11th std. to 15th std. we were in the same class, same bench, we even bunked lectures together. I remember one of the professors saying “puri class ek taraf aur ye dono ladki log ek taraf”. We even went to the washroom together hehe. After college also we used to spend hours chatting on the phone and everyone wondered what we had so much to talk about after spending the whole day together in college. Well I am not going to share what we had to talk about 🙂 Before every exam we spent half a day discussing on what to study. We have maintained our friendship even now 🙂

Well coming back to the alumni, the ceremony started with a short speech by our Principal Ma’am Ancy Jose. Later as every batch came forward to introduce themselves ; it was really amazing to see Vinay Sir remember so many incidents about each one of us.

Vinay Sir is a marvellous human being. He really makes every lecture lively. He is never limited to that boring classroom teachings and books. There is so many things beyond studies we learnt from him. Relationships, Life, Friendship etc etc.. he is someone with whom you can talk anything even the most filthiest stuffs 🙂

Only five people from our batch had attended the ceremony. Meghna, Nikita, Suchita, and of course Brinda and me. 🙂

When Upasana enacted Vinay Sir, I remembered Jyoti enacting him during our free time to entertain us. 🙂

Our juniors did a wonderful job. Hitanshi Sharma and Sheela Mehta hosted the entire evernt for us. And must say they both were very entertaining. Hitanshi performed a solo dance for us. Prachi Salunke, Unma Jagodia and Kajal Tiwari sang a lovely group song for us. On demand Vaidehi sang a solo song for us. She really has a gifted voice. We can’t thank these people enough. They put life into the whole event. God bless all of them 🙂
It was nice to see some of the ex students with their kids 🙂

Before leaving once I went to the dept. Room no. 41 🙂 As soon as I entered the room so many memories came running. It was like living life in a flashback mode. I remembered all the masti and dramas we did 🙂 This alumni really got back the best years of my life.

To conclude I just have one thing to say “NK COLLEGE PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT ROCKS” 🙂 🙂 🙂

#OuakerBowl Experience

I was very excited about the recent IndiMeet. The theme for this meet was #QuakerBowl sponsored by PepsiCo to promote the importance of Quaker Oats. No matter whatever the theme is for the meet ups the reason to attend these meet ups is to meet new people. Every time I go to such events I get to know interesting things. Knowledge is one aspect about IndiMeet, the best part is the unforgettable memories you get from these meet ups.

It was a beautiful Sunday morning on the 10th April ’16. I woke up all excited. Normally on Sundays I wake-up late however that day i woke up early, got ready posted a status on FB “all set for Indiblogger meet at JW Marriott Hotel”. One more reason why I was excited about this meet was that it was at JW Marriott. Being a recruiter I used to recruit for Shalimar Hotel and some candidates used to ask me if I had any openings for JW Marriott ? And I in return asked them “kyun Shalimar me kya problem hai? They said “nai koi problem nai hai lekin JW Marriott mast hotel hai”. So I thought “great… Today let’s see what so special about JW Marriott”.

We reached an hour early (we includes Alex – my brother and me). It was a nice hotel, nice place to hang around. It took us 15minutes to find the Ball Room. Once we reached the Ball Room, there were a couple of people already waiting for the registration. I sat there at the registration desk for some time. As people were entering they first looked around if they knew anybody. They hugged the ones they knew and just introduced themselves to the ones they didn’t. I just knew 3 to 4 people there. My brother’s friend Aditya who always is there in almost all events. He got a cup of coffee for me. It was such a luxury to drink coffee at JW Marriott 🙂

The auditorium opened at around 11.00 am, we all went in. Before every event starts Anup makes us do the usual exercise ‘stand and do hurrrrrrrr hurrrrrrrr’. I knew there was a celebrity Chef gonna come but wasn’t really that excited about it. However, when I saw Vikas Khanna I got all excited. My first reaction was ‘WOW’ 🙂 He looked good, well maintained, and girls going crazy about him. More than the talk we girls were interested in looking at him and taking selfies with him 😛 Though he was a celeb he was a nice person, down to earth. Above all he knew how to keep you awake during a talk. He was fun. He got off stage and involved himself with us. He stood amongst us and told us about the importance of Oats.

It was like a live Master Chef show where we had small contests like ‘drink the soup and guess the ingredients’, ‘cook something out of the given ingredients’. There was an interactive session where he asked questions and we had to answer. Alex answered a question and won a Quaker Oats hamper.

Alex was equally fun being with. He did live tweets regarding the event. He was nothing less than a celeb. Girls were coming and
talking to him. One girl even said that she finds him interesting and I was just sitting and observing how likeable he was. When I went to the washroom I found girls talking about him. I was feeling proud, he is my brother 🙂

We had the usual photograph session.

Then came the lunch time. Whether you like the event or not, you will definitely love the food. If you ask me, food was yum but desert was more yummy.

Inspired by Vikas Khanna I have decided to learn cooking now. My Mumma even tried a couple of recipes from the recipe book given to us at the end of the event. Now we eat only Oat items in breakfast 🙂

To conclude, I would say it was a lovely event full of fun and nutritious talk. As I have said earlier we get to know a lot of valuable information in these meet ups along with long lasting memories to cherish. For me I get to spend a quality time with my brother which we don’t get quite often at home due to our busy schedules.

Looking forward to more such events 🙂

Happy Hours :)

Does happy hours exist ? Is there a particular hour in the whole day when you think you will be only happy?

Yes…. Happy Hours exist. All it needs is to understand your definition of happiness. We all have our own definition of happiness. Whatever is your definition of happiness, ultimately that becomes your #HappyHour.

Happiness for me is Life. Life is the longest happy hour. There is nothing greater than life. When a life comes into this world, we celebrate; we celebrate that day every year as birthdays. When someone dies we moan. Everything else is because of Life. Have you ever thought, what would you achieve or lose if you were not alive ? So for me happiness is Life; #myhappyhour.

It’s not like I have a royal life that’s why I am talking great about life, it’s just that I value life. No matter whatever you achieve in life, you will not really be happy unless and until you value and understand how blessed you are by being alive.

My life is simple but beautiful. You may even call it routine yet it’s lovely. Every morning I wake up and excitedly think of what all I have to do at work. My office is like my second home for me. Once I reach office I totally belong only to my work. It’s just me and my work. I am never in a hurry to leave from office so my Mumma calls me everyday at 6.00 pm to remind me that I need to come home 🙂 my brother even gave me a table clock so that I see the time and leave from office on time. Anyways that was about my office, when I come back home my kids wait for me in the compound and every single day give me a warm welcome. When I see their smiling faces I just forget about work stress if any. I have not given birth to them still they are my kids. As soon as I reach home they tell me what they did in school. If they win a prize they show it to me first. More than their own parents they share all their secrets with me. Sometimes even I get involved in their pranks and it’s fun. If they do something wrong I scold them and they very positively accept their mistakes. I am like a role model for them, whatever I do/say is always right according to them. They look up to me for everything. On weekends I play with them and they bring back my childhood memories. Every evening we decide on which colour clothes should be worn and we all wear the same 🙂 ; since blue is my favourite colour you will find them wearing blue on the days we are not able to meet and decide the colour. We celebrate every festival together. On my birthdays more than me they are excited. They make cards and make my day special.

Weekends are family days. Mumma gossips about all the evil aunties 🙂 ; those silly fights and arguments with my brother. Sometimes my brother takes me to events with him and we enjoy a lot together. Some weekends I go out with the kids and friends and we have a blast.

I’ve had my share of struggle in terms of health and career. I am sure this is not all; there would be more struggles in future but I am prepared for it. Nothing really would stop me from loving my life. I am blessed with a lovely family, caring friends, sweet kids and of course one khadus Gabbar Boss 🙂

So that’s My Life My Happy Hour 🙂

My Journey At Talent Selexion

Talent Selexion (TS) is the place where I work. I’ve completed a year today at Talent Selexion so thought of sharing my experience with you guys. 🙂

I still remember my 1st day at TS I felt like I’ve come to a different planet altogether and people around are aliens 😛

Being from a carefree environment I had suddenly gone to a place having rules, regulations, procedures, systems and God knows what all. When Jesson Sir (my boss) was explaining how they function my head was spinning and I just wanted to get out of that place. I’d thought I’ll never go back but since I have a tendency of not giving up easily I again went to work the 2nd day. Hmmmm 2nd day I tried getting myself into that system. A week passed, yet I was unable to adapt to the rules and system 🙂

Jesson Sir was like a monster, one small mistake and he used to give a full long lecture on rules, regulations, procedures and systems. I just hated him for that. I started calling him GABBAR 🙂 (Jesson Sir, if you are reading this, sorry 🙂 ).

A month passed I still didn’t like TS. Somewhere I knew the problem was not in TS, the actual problem was that I was too attached to my previous organisation. I just didn’t want to accept the fact that now I am a part of TS. I hated everything in TS. I started making mistakes on purpose to irritate Jesson Sir but I always found him extra patient with me.

I was so frustrated that I wanted Jesson Sir himself to throw me out of the organisation. Once I lied and got caught. I felt bad about it and was even a little scared but at the back of my head I thought at least now Jesson Sir will ask me to leave the organisation. It was as if Jesson Sir had made up his mind that no matter what he will not ask me to leave so he just shouted at me and told me don’t repeat it again. However I decided I will resign and I did. May be this was a shock for him but surprisingly he called me and spoke to me politely. He tried to understand what was bothering me, stopped me from leaving.

That day I realised what a big idiot I was. I realised how nice Jesson Sir was. I really started respecting him after that. He made me feel that my presence was important. Then I decided to stay in the organisation. I put my heart and soul in everything that I did and learnt a lot more than I knew. And of course I even adapted to the rules and systems 🙂

Now that I was fine with TS I even got along well with my colleague. We had our own little fights and arguments but never had any grudges held against each other. No matter what happened we had a mutual understanding and worked together. A new colleague joined us and she was a real chatter box. I never mix up with anyone that easily but she got friendly with me herself 😛 It was fun now because earlier it was only me alone who called Sir Gabbar now even my colleagues supported me. Jesson Sir was no longer a monster for me. Neither his shooting hurt me. In fact each time he shouted at any of us we used to laugh it out by saying “Gabbar ne aaj meri class li” 🙂 Everything was perfect we worked, we cracked jokes and laughed. We even used to party at times. Unfortunately due to some misunderstanding one of my colleague had to leave. After some days the other colleague also left. Everything changed in a blink of eye.

After my colleagues left I had a feeling that something bad is gonna happen but I paid least attention to my fears because I thought TS needed me so I kept working. New colleagues joined and somewhere my fears came true. This new person entered and ruined everything. Due to her I even had arguments with Sir. Once again I felt like leaving TS. This time it was my Mommy who told me don’t leave your job because of someone else. I stayed back but during that period unknowingly my colleagues had triggered an incident that I had left behind. All over again the past started playing on my mind. I was so disturbed that was unable to concentrate on my work. I didn’t perform well that time still Jesson Sir was patient and gave me time to over come things. Luckily I went on a short Christmas vacation that time. In the company of friends and family my self confidence was back. I was all set to go back and work at TS. When I went back due to some reason even these colleagues left. To be frank this didn’t affect me at all because they had just spoilt the environment with office politics. However Jesson Sir was upset that again people left. Now I hope whoever new comes in TS may they come with good intentions.

In spite of all finally I completed a year at TS. It’s surprising how I completed a year at a place where I thought I won’t survive even a month. 🙂 TS taught me many things. It mae me more organised. Now I follow the system. I am not that perfect because unintentionally I still make silly mistakes and Jesson Sir patiently corrects them. TS even taught me about two faced people.

Recently there was a Rickshaw strike and I was unable to go to office. Jesson Sir picked me up from home and even dropped me back in the evening. This was really a great gesture because no boss would do so much for an employee

I must say Jesson Sir is the world’s best boss. At times I have told him stuffs that I shouldn’t dare saying as an employee but he has handled it with maturity. He never shouted at me that I am your boss how dare you say this, instead he sits with me and politely clears all my doubts. Not only as a boss but as a human he is a very kind and just person. After my family, I trust and respect him a lot.

Don’t know what’s in-store in the future but I hope I share a good relation at TS. Even if I have to leave TS shall leave on a good note 🙂

Madeofgreat

We come across so many different people in our lives. Some we like, some we love, some we hate; some stay in our lives for a e long time or forever, some stay in our lives for a short period of time. We wish some people to be with us always but unfortunately due to some reasons they don’t be with us. Such people always live in our hearts. We at times hate the sight of some people yet we need to deal with them. These all are #coloursoflife

That was about our routine life. In our busy life we at times come across some incidents/people which/who leave behind an unforgettable mark on our lives.

Recently I’ve met one such person at #BNLF and his name is Raghava. Raghava is truly #madeofgreat. I met him just once n was with him only for few hours. We might never meet again but he’s definitely left behind an unforgettable impression. This man is blind and it is really amazing the way he lives his life. He is full of life. I don’t know much about him but whatever little I know has made me respect him. ‘Respect’ is a small word for him. There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe him.

He was not born blind he lost his eyesight later, don’t know when exactly. If a person is blind from birth it really doesn’t affect him much mentally, but when a person goes blind all of a sudden it takes a lot of courage to accept and live a normal life again. Raghava has made that effort and stood up strong against his own disability.

At the lunch table I told him I am a recruiter and he happily said he was a head hunter but never found head nor hunting 🙂 He had no regrets for his failure instead he laughed over it. We all should learn to be like him

He being a blind, fights for the  rights of all handicp people. Hats off. Now that’s just marvellous. He travelled from Hyderabad to Mumbai alone just to  attend BNLF. I don’t know what really motivates him but he is a true inspiration for all of us.

At the time of departure he told me that I am a strong lady 🙂 I believe he is stronger than me. That’s why I call him MADEOFGREAT  🙂

You Disappointed Me

Hello all you gorgeous readers here I am to review another Garnier product.

In my last Garnier blog I was excited to tell you guys how lovely was the fall fight range, but this time Garnier has disappointed me.

I am talking about the “Goodbye Damage” range of Garnier.

I love Garnier range of shampoos but the goodbye damage range makes me wonder ‘does goodbye actually mean a goodbye to damage ?’

Product description : Just like all other Garnier shampoos this one too comes in an opaque and flip cap open bottle; orange in colour. The shampoo is white in colour and has a runny consistency.
image

Ingredients : Water, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Glycol Distearate, Sodium Chloride, Amodimethicone, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Niancinamide, Sugarcane Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol, Sodium Hydroxide, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Trideceth-6, Salicylic Acid, Limonene, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate, Benzyl Alcohol, Apple Fruit Extract, Carbomer, Pyridoxine HCI, Citric Acid, Cetrimonium Chloride, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Lemon Peel Extract, Hexyl Cinnamal, Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract, Fragrance.

My view about this product : Hmmmmmmmmmmmm what can I say! There’s nothing good about this product. It claims to strengthen your hair 3 times more from root to tip. Sad enough it doesn’t at all live up to its claims. Moreover you end up with more damage to your hair.

It doesn’t lather that well and it gives you a sticky feel after wash. It makes the hair dull and dry that breaks easily.

The only good thing is the fragrance. It has a lovely fragrance that stays on  the entire day.

So ladies do not fall for its cute packaging because the cute looking shampoo wouldn’t make your hair look cute in return.

I will give this product just 1/5 star  for its lovely fragrance.

That’s all for now. Do wait for my next blog I am going to introduce you to one of my newest love and I am sure you guys too will love it.

Till then stay healthy and be smart before you fall for cute products. Cya 🙂

Thought for the day

No matter how big mistake you have made it is always better to confess the truth to your loved ones. If the person is matured enough, he/she will appreciate the effort you took to speak the truth because not everyone have the guts to confess the truth. And even if the person doesn’t forgive you, at least you feel good from within after speaking the truth.

Finally if the person really cares for you then sooner or later he/she will understand. All you need is to give them time. Time has the power to heal everything.

I Love Garnier

Hello everyone,

Here I come with an exciting product by Garnier. Well Garnier is well known for its wide range of products and most of us just love them, don’t we ? 🙂

If you talk about me , l love Garnier range of shampoos. I keep switching from one to the other range of Garnier shampoos. And to be honest all of them give me almost the same results, its just that fragrance keep changing 😀

Today I am going to review the Garnier fructis fall fight fortifying range of shampoo.

Well, hair fall is one such problem that almost every 2nd woman is suffering from. Some of us just let it be, while some try many different products and treatments; in the course they end up having severe hair fall. Its OK if you just let it be but if the problem is severe you can always consult a professional. Frankly speaking there is no such shampoo that will give you 100% relief from hair fall but some shampoos can help you control the problem to an extent; Garnier fructis fall fight fortifying shampoo is one of them.

image

Product description and claims : it comes in an opaque green coloured bottle with a flip cap. The shampoo is creamy white in colour. It has a perfect consistency, not too thick not too runny. It has a mild fragrance which stays for some while after wash. It doesn’t lather easily so a large quantity is required.

What it claims? It claims to strengthen your hair fibres from within and protect your hair from breakage.

Ingredients :

image

Active fruit concentrate
Fructose + glucose, vitamins B3 + B6 nourishes hairs from the roots
AHAs strengthen the hair fibre.

My Take on this : hmmmm yes it does stands up to its claims to an extent. Now, to an extent I mean is , it doesn’t give 100% relief from hair fall but to a great extent it controls the problem. May be by regular use it might give you 100% relief but do not assure you on this because I don’t stick to the same range for long. I love all range of Garnier shampoos so alternatively use all of them.

Besides it doesn’t leave your hair dry and dull looking. It makes your hair smooth soft and healthy looking. It cleans your scalp and hair thoroughly maintaining the PH balance.

The only thing you might not like about it is that it contains SLS.

It has all the nice qualities that a good shampoo must have so I give it 5/5 stars

So now you know why ‘I Love Garnier’. As Garnier always say ‘Take Care’ until my next post Cya 🙂
