Pathshala Funwala

Pathshala Funwala

“I am blogging about Pathshala Funwala by Nihar Shanti Amla Oil in association with BlogAdda”

Do you know Krishna?? He is our maid’s youngest son. He represents a class of people who are poor but always wanted to do something big. They have courage but not the direction and resources. If given a chance may can do something worthy in their lives.

Our maid has 5 kids, three daughters and two boys. Krishna is youngest of them all. Dark, short but a disciplined child. He always stands first in class. As per his mom, since they are poor and cannot afford to educate all her kids, stills she is trying hard to make Krishna educated. He is a brilliant kid who has that spark in his eyes which can be seen or noticed in famous personalities like Sachin Tendulkar and Amitabh Bachan.

Krishna is too fond of reading novels and that too of English language but due to his Hindi Medium School, where less focus is being given to English as a language is quite poor in reading and understanding English. I have many times noticed his keen interest to learn English but could not. even I too not able to manage to give some time to make him learn due to office, home and kids.

Recently, I was discussing about Krishna and his interest in English language with one of my office colleague and she told me about ‘Pathshala Funwala’ initiative of Nihar Naturals Shanti Amla, a leading hair oil in the country has always had purpose at its heart. Through this initiative the brand endeavors to make education accessible, anywhere anytime.

She further told me If there’s a child, who wants to, but doesn’t have access to learn English, than anyone can come to their aid by introducing to them this unique toll-free number 8055667788 with them and tell them how they can learn English easily. What she was saying was really unbelievable as a reputed brand like Nihar is thinking to educate children and help them learn English and that too with such easiness.

I am really Thankful to Nihar Shanti Amla’s Pathshala Funwala’s initiative which has opened doors for many people like Krishna. As soon as I got home, I told everything to Krishna’s Mom and asked her to make his son learn English as it is very necessary t make your child updated with today’s World. Even she was happy and thanked me from core of her heart.

So, if you also know someone like Krishna that be a part of this change and help whoever you can find. Don’t forget to share Nihar Shanti Amla’s Pathshala Funwala’s toll free number 8055667788 with them and tell them how they can learn English easily.

#Dilsedesi with #FBB

#Dilsedesi with #FBB

Kurtas are my all time favorite. I love wearing them as can be paired with nearly all the type of the bottoms like palazzo, jeans, leggings and others. But this time #FBB has asked us to be somewhat different and to pair them which in a different way. Here below are my four looks which I experimented with a Kurti style top purchased from FBB for Rs.499.

  1. Lets’ Relax: Its weekend and who don’t like to relax wearing comfortable denim shorts and FBB kurti

  1. Party Look: I paired pink kurti with my single flower printed FBB dress

  1. Festive Look: Month of August means a month of celebrations. We have Rakshabandhan, Janamasthmi, I-Day and other celebrations in month of August. So tried to pair my kurti with Long skirt to give it a traditional look.

You can also try them wearing as single dresses or when paired with blazer can be help you to look trendy in those business meetings.

#Technocrat MIL

#Technocrat MIL

Do you know my MIL?? What a stupid question..Obviously how can you and its good that you don’t. If there is any competition about the best nagger, than she will top the list. She has expert advice for everything. She always has different views from me for everything. She has lots of time and so are suggestions. Though I respect her a lot but at times or to be honest most of the times, I get irritated with her attitude and so much of free time for me.

But than one day, my life got changed. My MIL got super happy with me. She got super busy and hardly got anytime for giving suggestions. I know you would be curious to know the reason for this change. Shhhh…Its a big secret but since you are my friend, I will share the same with you. The problem solver is Smartphone and its technology. Yes, I gifted her a smart phone on her birthday. Since that day she is happy and so do I. Let me tell you how smart phone and its technology come for my rescue

Camera: Recently, my MIL has been honored as selfies queen. Selfies with pout, friends, family, neighbors, pets, God, and many times you can’t even imagine but she can really show you different ways to have selfies.

WhatsApp/ hike: photo sharing, gossiping through chat, creating various groups and becoming their admin is her best hobby now..

Social media like Facebook: You post a photo and you will instantly get her like on it as my MIL remains online for 24*7.

Hotstar/ YouTube: Before there used to be tension between us on watching our favorite serial but now she watch most of her serial on her smart phone only.

Smiley: Making faces and reacting to whatever I say was the best time pass for my MIL but now she sends meme, gifs and smiles instead of reacting in front.

Candy crush Passing the taunts is no longer her favorite game as now she loves to play candy crush. No one will believe if I say she is at 367 level of this game.

Various other Apps: Now a days you will find her enhancing her knowledge by downloading various apps. From education to health, managing money to paying bills, you can find every type of app installed on her smartphone.

 My #technocrats Mother in Law (MIL)

My piece of advice: So if are married and want to keep your MIL busy and happy than best thing is to gift her a smartphone. Her happiness is equally proportional to your happiness. A smartphone has become a life savior in my case and hopefully it will be the same for you as well.

Reasons why you may not be loosing weight??

Reasons why you may not be loosing weight??

Try, try until you succeed…by anonymous.

There will be no one better than me who can understand and implemented this saying to the fullest. Its near about a
decade that am trying to loose weight and become fit. I have left no stone turned to loose weight and from my experience I have understand loosing weight is not all about exercising, eating less or having medicines, otherwise its about being active and eating right.

Its in year 2006, for the first I hit gym for the weight loss. Let me tell you at that time I was very healthy and to be specific as healthy as a baby elephant and weight near about 82KGs. Weighting this much for a unmarried gal and that too with 5.4″ height is something unexceptional. It is not like I haven’t lost weight, I did lost about 20KGS by working hard at gym, dieting, fasting and many other means but still unable to achieve my fit body. At times got pear shaped or pot shaped body or at times my face got ultra skinny and thin, but never able to achieve “Perfect body” and weight below 60KG.

But Recently, things changed. Though right now am at 61KGs but for more than a year weighed 59.2KGs and that was the best part of my health. Everyone asking me to gain weight instead of loosing more. You may be wondering how it may be possible?? Whether I tried gym, fasting or what but the answer is nothing. I tried nothing of that sort but still manage to get a healthy body.

But there are many of us who are really trying and still not loosing weight. Guys, Fitness is not about hitting gym. There you work for parts of your body while fitness is about being wholly solly fit. So if you are not loosing weight check on this points and may be any of them is the reason for you being fat.

  1. Say No to Stale/leftover or refrigerated food: Especially, we woman feel like no to waste anything so therefore food left by husband, kids or after dinner we think of placing them in already over eaten stomach. Make this habbit to say no to leftover foods, especially meant for kids as mostly out of love we put extra ghee , butter into it.

  2. Try going for those foods which help in loosing weight. There are many foods which help in loosing weight and are yummy as well. SO we should opt for such foods instead of going for those which makes your weight increase. For more please my full post here: Herbs helped me in loosing weight

  3. Sleeping after eating: Whenever you have your meal, try to be active after having it. I am not saying you have to be awake whole night but try not to sleep for at least 45 minutes after having it. Sleeping slow down our metabolism and thus increase in fat in body.

  4. Over use of white sugar in your food: Whereas jaggery is good for health, white sugar cause many damages to the human bod. Going without it may not be possible but you can reduce its intake in your daily diet.

  5. Drinking less water: Have you ever keep a track of glasses of water that you drink in a day. With me at times they goes upto 8-9 but when the weather is good I hardly drink more than 3 glasses in a day. I know this will or used to happen with many of us. So better is to make sure you are drinking atleast 6 glasses in a day for your good health.
