Magical Vacations

Magical Vacations

A television channel says ' Asli Maza To Sab Ke Saath Aata Hai ' ( Real fun is with everyone ). There are business outings and you go alone without family. Then in spite of having lots of spare time you better prefer to stay in your hotel room due to lack of enthusiasm and interests. But when you visit same place with the family having children around, you feel the environment much happier and livelier than when you were alone. Children bring that magical touch to any vacation, their enthusiasm and interests in things make you more excited about holidays planned with them.

Today in this competitive world children are so much busy with their studies,tuition,dance classes,music classes,hobby classes,etc that they hardly get any time to cherish nature. I felt very bad one day when my nephew questioned me about how a full moon looks like. I realized that they stay so much occupied inside the four walls of the houses in the concrete jungle called city that they have never seen a full moon by sleeping outdoors. Perhaps they are also unaware of soothing summer morning breeze, floral gardens, birds chirping and things like that. They are not solely responsible for this situation.

We never took out time from our busy schedules to spend quality time with them to discuss their desires. Conversations with them reveals their contentment in smaller things than we think like chasing a butterfly, making a tree house, watching wild animals in jungle, feeding fishes in ponds, spending time with family in camping and if we looked closely to this list these are also the things we want for ourselves. Children with their holiday plans live with dreams some of which are unfulfilled  in our own lives and somewhere in our life we also wishes for these desires to come true.  

I have kids around me in the form of nephews and nieces and I would want them to experience these beauties of nature with the family in a holiday of their choice a #TravelWithKids. I would ensure such a place for them where they could feel nature close to them. Where they could cherish the beauty of high mountains and at the same time embellish the flowing fresh water of rivers under their feet. A place where they could fully enjoy their childhood and give us elders in the family to relive our childhood with them. I would make sure the freedom of their senses which they otherwise hide behind books or games. I would like to see them as children and not as copies of their elders always occupied with something.

Kids see vacations very differently from adults, their expectations are much different from us and you could have an idea of these desires with Club Mahindra Teddy Travelogue an online travelogue of kids written by kids. While reading them you realizes that holidays are not meant just for fun for kids but they also learn a lot in such vacations. These stories inspires children to travel more and create a platform to showcase their unique talents.

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

RIP Tom Alter

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
