Natural Care is The Best Care

Natural Care is The Best Care

If you have sisters and that too five in number then one thing you would know the best is the hair and skin care techniques. I am lucky too have five sisters thus home-made remedies for different problems are easy to find. They keep newspaper and magazine cuttings about skin care, how to get slim, how to grow your hair long, what to eat for glowing skin et cetera, et cetera and I am being younger to them was their Guinea Pig to test new products and solutions they made after reading in newspaper and magazines or watching them in television. I didn't protest because I knew they would not try anything harmful on me and because after that they have to make things I like to eat.  

I have oily skin which is perfect for pimples but you would be shocked to know that my face remain unaffected by pimples due to the use of Multani Mitti (Fullers Earth) on my face. Multani mitti also gives relief against prickly heat. I still remember that when I was a child they rub my complete body with Multani mitti paste during hot Delhi summer. It is more effective on face when you apply it by mixing sandalwood powder which is good for skin glow. Sandalwood powder and rose-water mixture is also an alternative for glowing skin. 

You must have heard the old VICCO turmeric cream jingle , ' keel muhaso ko jad se mitai, haldi chandan ke gund isme samaye,' (removes black head and pimples, with turmeric and sandalwood qualities) which clearly indicates the importance of sandalwood in skin glow. This cream is a regular in our house from always. I have also used other things like sandalwood face packs, turmeric face packs, neem face packs et cetera on advice of my sisters and believe me the natural products are better than artificial chemical based products. Now I don't listen to their advice much but during my childhood and teenage they used to guide me for healthy skin and hair. Now I too have knowledge of many things from their experience and by searching Internet.

Using natural products for your skin maintains the originality of your skin thus keeping your face younger and energetic for a longer span of your life. You must have noticed the soft skins of  your grandmothers, this is due to the use of natural products more in the past. It is true that pollution and changing environment have increased the risk of skin damage and you are required to use much more things on your skin than before but you can still use Ayurvedic products or products with the natural ingredients like VICCO turmeric cream instead of chemical based products.

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 substances however are not harmful a…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
