My Love For The City Of Nawabs

When you drive along the roads of Lucknow you'll find that there are hundreds of Rickshaw walas who ask you were you want to go . There are people who will always be there for you, even though you don't belong from the city. 
That's the beauty of Lucknow. Lush green farms and fields border Lucknow and there are beautiful dams and excellent monuments. Not to forget numerous car pooling type wale autos by which you can travel and save money while travelling.
Also equipped with an airport and the most popular railway station , Lucknow does not lack anything! It’s the perfect place to live! I was myself surprised to find out that Lucknow is among the most bicycle-friendly cities in India and many Bike-friendly tracks have been established throughout the city which leads to less pollution. When you ask my dad where he would spend the rest of life , there’s one word on his tongue- Lucknow ! The city deserves it. People want a relaxed and lay back city to live in once they retire and Lucknow is full of such people.
The buildings are designed in such a way that you gaze at their beauty . There are memorials, zoos and parks for one to spend their evenings and weekends. The food is the most talked about ! One can simply not stay at Lucknow and love the city. The beauty of the city is once you live here, you want to stay here, forever.

Even though I don’t stay in Lucknow , its where my heart belongs. People often say you simply cannot find a beautiful place than the place you are born and spend your childhood in. But that’s just not the case for my love for the city I was born in, its way more than that!
Lucknow is bordered with numerous villages that speak of peace and serenity. The beauty of the place is in its people, the locals, the food and the monuments.

You must have hear raving reviews about the food of the city already plus the locals living here are the most friendly. People of Lucknow are the best when it comes to connectivity and helping nature.
Lucknow- The city of Nawabs defines etiquette and civility in the most august manner!Situtated in the heart of UP , though populated , Lucknow is famously known for its “pyaar and tahzeeb” thing. Lucknow is not far when it comes to culture, music, art , shayri and poetry. Its one of the oldest and traditional cities of India.

Starting from melodious music, to dance and culture to beauty, sophistication and architecture, Lucknow has its all. The design , the monuments and the greenery will leave you spell bound.

The people here are so heart-warming, their hospitality and chivalrous lingual abilities will make you fall in love with city again and again. You can never feel alone in Lucknow for its people always welcome one with open arms!
Lucknow is one of the growing cosmopolitan cities.. Gifted with rich cultural and artistic history, Lucknow is  an important place of music, art, poetry and tourism. It was shaped by several emperors since the Mughal period and developed even when India was ruled by Britishers. 
Lucknow is the city I choose to vote for when it comes Drive, design and connect . M city is #MadeOfGreat . What do you think?

Undoubtedly Mothers Are Made Of Great !

What do you call a person who is gifted with two mothers? Happiest person alive on Earth ! Yes ! That would be me ! We all know moms are the best but finding a mom in your mom in law , now that’s god’s gift!
When I was 23 , I was engaged to my darling husband and to tell you the truth I was a bundle of nerves thinking of all the tasks and responsibilities I had to face after getting married. But I was blessed with the sweetest mother in law and she has by far the greatest impact on me.
Hailing from a village my mother in law is simple and kind hearted in nature but her strength , her power , her soft- heartedness, tenderness and acceptance of a daughter in law as her own daughter sets her apart from the world ! For me she was the best thing that happened to me after marriage . Yes , not the kids but it was my mother in law. Infact I never felt she was my husband's mother but always thought of her as my own.
She is a mother to 9 kids and does all of the housework on her own and believes in doing her work on her own. She inspired me to a stage where I felt I would be lost without her. Everybody used to make fun that ‘yeh mayka bhool gayi..aati hi nahi’ but the truth was she made sure there was never a moment where I missed my mom, at times reminding me to call my mom at home. Super sweet!
 I have learnt a whole lot lessons from her and ever since I met her my life changed. She has been my best friend and a mom altogether ! And being the eldest daughter in law she has always looked upon me as her eldest most favorite daughter! I do wish every mother in law out there would be like her than India would be such a better place to live! No tears , no drama ! Sigh !
Her ability to solve every situation without being dramatic and her willpower to never let go of the good makes her unique. She might not be a successful name in the outer world from within she has mothered 9 lovely children and she is the sole reason for their epic transformation into growing up to be good human beings!
My best opportunities were recognized after my marriage. She always supported me professionally and emotionally! Her belief ‘Look for those you can help, not those who can help you’ also is something I will not forget for a long time ..
Early this month Tata motors announced great Argentine Footballer ace Lionel Messi to have become the brand ambassador of Tata and will be representing them globally. A great brand meets pure excellence! The young are sure to go wild and this is a stepping stone for Tata Motors. Association of a brand with a great international player is very appealing and is sure to garner the attention of millions of customers!  Lionel Messi is one of my favorites when it comes to football and I think Tata Motors has chosen to associate with him for his sheer willpower and hard work has marked him a Hero!
What do you think of their combining with 4 time winner player Messi ? Will it prove a success for them in connecting with the youth globally ? Comment about it and the best comment will be rewarded a gift voucher worth Rs 750/- from !

Look forward for your views.

The real joy of being together with the help of nature!

A few days back when my kid opened up my laptop and pressed the correct password everybody was overjoyed and called him a digi-kid ! He loves smartphones! Doesn't eat without watching a youtube video but hey I wasn't a happy mom to see my kid addicted to all the new tech stuff ! Like other moms I wanted my kid to take interest in games and stay away from the threats of getting stuck up online and in the web of digital world.
Kids often tend to get addicted to laptops, television and smartphones. Its the reason why we parents worry so much for their correct upbringing. I have often observed people who are addicted to the virtual world have no time to actually celebrate life and enjoy the little moments in life.

The video by Kissan is by far the best example for this ! An old man walking around watches adults entwined in the digital world and not enjoying being together. There is no connection between anyone, this is true and the real state of our society. Sadly we fail to observe this .
My idea of togetherness is to enjoy the moment like Katrina Kiaf says in ZindagiNa Milegi dobara and hence I make sure my kids play outside and spend more time with their grandparents and friends and not watch Tv or play games 24X7!
Real togetherness is when people connect when they meet - be it  meeting a stranger or a person we know! In digi world there is hardly any connection! For instance take instagram , 1000's of food pictures telling telling strangers how much they enjoy the food or how hard it was to cook ! But all these uploading pictures, have they ever felt the need to cook for their loved and tell them how much they love him/her? No! And with the selfie rage lets forget about togetherness ! Instead of enjoying all the happy moments with our families we tend to take loads and loads of selfie's to upload on the net ! This is the real truth of our society!
In order to stop this stupidity of the so called digi world togetherness where we share feelings and emotions via twitter and facebook to people we hardly know one should turn up their family and enjoy the little moments in life. Like help them garden and collect mogra flowers for your mom/grandmom in the mornings( That's one thing i love to do and helps me connect in the REAL sense)
Or they could collect rain water in fun ways or decorate your home with flower pots ! That's togetherness when everybody enjoys the little things in life in the REAL sense!
So lets make this world a better place by limiting the use of technology and putting a fullstop to all those things that keep us away from enjoying togetherness !

My sweet alternative : Dabur Honey diet !

crash diets rarely work
Ever since we are a child we are taught the importance of a balanced diet and how it is crucial to follow a healthy balanced diet. I remember flipping through my EWS Science text book pages and finding all kind of information on how important it is to follow a balanced diet. Be it an adult or a child, everybody are advised to follow a nutritional diet. It is important to follow the right pattern of eating so that the diet we follow provides the right amount of nutrients to stay healthy!
Those who don’t follow a strict healthy diet plan are prone to obesity and much more lethal deficiency’s. Its not until you see others  affected by cancer, heart diseases and cataracts , you then realize the importance of the role of a diet in our lives.
Take for example the rise in the cases of obesity and diabetes which are results of poor diet following and lack of daily exercising . Most of the deathly diseases such as stroke, cancer and heart attacks are due to poor diets.
hence those who follow a balanced diet benefit so much more than they can hardly imagine. first of all they put all of the deathly diseases at bay and you’ll not have weighty issue and last of all you’ll be a happier person at the end of the day! But the best thing about eating a balanced diet is that you won’t have to visit the scary hospitals ! You get to save on medical bills ! According to me the best four benefits a person can get from following a balanced diet go as follows:
1. Stress free: yay ! Good nutritional food keeps stress hormones at bay ! experience sweetheart ;)
2. Stay in shape! : Yes ! remember all those times when you sadly looked at your old favorite tight clothes? No more sulking on how you are putting on weight ! With the right balanced diet and simple healthy choices you can go from ouch to wow!
3. Healthy heart :The best weapon against heart diseases are the right amount of intake of fruits, veggies rich in vitamins and following a diet which is low in calories.
4. Wellbeing wala feeling: Its normal for a person to feel happy when he is feeling healthy and is in shape. So those who follow a balanced diet are people who are happy! What could be more better than staying happy?
Remember its easy to follow a crash diet but compromising on your health can be damn harmful! They hardly work and you end up with a lot of heart problems. Crash diets cut down on our bodies good and the baddy fats leading to fat deficiency so lets pledge not to go on a crash diet ever ! Thanks to Dabur for the honey diet you now don’t have to follow these so called stupid crash diets ! Honey diet is a sweet alternative for all those craving to get rid of heebie-jeebies !

So have you tried the honey diet yet? If yes then its time to break into a happy jig  :D

24X7 cricket Amazingness With Surf It All - UC Cricket !

Cricket is one thing Indians take seriously. Everyone out there on the streets  or the playground will laugh at you if you ask them why they play cricket or why worship the sport? Isn't the start of IPl not enough to let others know how crazy we Indians are about the game. We jump in joy when Sachin hits a six and roll on the grounds when Yuvraj hits 3 fours in a row! It may sound crazy but people in India will skip meals , skip going on a date with a beautiful girl and much more just to watch a Indo-Pak match !

I love cricket and I have crush on almost all Indian Batsmen , married or not ! And when I miss a match I make sure I have the live stream backed up on my phone to watch it whenever I am free !

or take it when i laundry clothes at home, I watch cricket on the UC Cricket app. It has been my save buddy now and now i frequently visit the app. its my favorite. Not to forget even hubby is addicted to the app. :Last time we both went out eating at a restaurant when my kids where at my mom's place. We placed our orders and until the food arrived we both squeezed int his smartphone and cheered as Yuvraj Singh kept hitting sixes !

My hubby confessed that he even skipped lunch just so can catch up on the score by running to the place where Tv was placed in his office. It was then when I installed UC Browser in his phone and ever since then he has been a fan of the browser and recommended it most of his colleagues and friends,.
