Image
“ Rocky and Mayur have ventured out to explore food from all parts of India and curate videos on Askme.com  I'm contributing my part by relishing my favorite dishes at Al Nawaz Restaurant  and sharing my views with you all ! Hubby Dear had been singing praises of this relatively new entrant in the Mughlai food market .The place was very much in demand during the Ramzan month too .In fact so enamoured is my dear husband that he visits it almost every week to enjoy their famous Chicken Biryani .So this time around we all decided to visit this place and get a review for my readers too. Address - A-50, Abul Fazal Enclave, Jamia Nagar, Delhi |   9711794455 , +91-11-26984544 ,                 +91-11-26984546   Landmark : Near Police Station Jamia Nagar .

Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic foot file Review

Image
Life is tough for a girl who loves her high heels , because they don't love you back ! Instead I end up getting cracked heels frequently .The sun and long walks make my feet dry too .So I really need to pamper them regularly which means foot creams and regular parlour visits for professional pedicures . But most of you must know from their experience , how time consuming it can be and also a little heavy on the pocket .A good professional pedicure sets you back by Rs 500 to Rs 1000 in any decent parlour ,and takes anything upwards of forty five minutes to one hour .For me it is even more demanding as I have to visit the parlour every 15 days . That is why , I had been eyeing the Scholl 's express pedi kit everytime I would visit the Bata showroom .Finally I took the plunge and acquired it .So now for the review .                            Price - Rs 2850/- for one unit , but when I checked online , Amazon.in is offering it for a great discount .You can check it

Taazgi Ka Dhamaka music video featuring Allu Arjun

                              In the above video, the mast vocals of Anushka Manchanda ,wake up Allu Arjun from his slumber and  then his fresh dance moves and Anushka's magical voice together  create a Dhamaka in the boring marriage function . We all go through dull ,boring and sometime tedious moments in life , when the mind just wants to be hit by a wave of freshness to infuse life with a new surge of energy and cheer . To beat the blues ,I have a playlist of such songs which I always keep with me and according to my mood , I give myself these mini shots of freshness as and when required . So here it goes ... 1. Nindiya se Jaagi Bahar from the movie " Hero " This is my  morning song , a beautiful song which evokes the freshness of the wild and virgin nature and makes me feel that I am transported into a different  time and place far from the maddening crowds . 2. " I'm Alive " by Celine Dion An all time favourite for the morn

Is Massage really important for the development of a Baby

Image
It has been always stressed in our households that babies need regular massage to help the in the development of strong bones and msucles .So how true is this claim ? Or are we following it blindly just like we do so many rituals and customs. What does Science say  Medical research has found that human babies deprived of touch showed decreased growth hormone and developed a condition called psychosocial dwarfism ; even worse they also did not grow when given injections of growth hormone. Only when given human touch did these infants grow. This finding implies that touch causes something beneficial to take place at the cellular level that makes the cells respond to the circulating growth hormone . Research also shows that babies receiving extra touch become better organized. They sleep better at night, fuss less during the day, and relate better to caregivers’ interactions. Touch settles babies. Massage can be a wonderful tool for helping your baby go to sleep at night.  Rese

    India is the land of cricket buffs.You know that IPL is on when you see the midnight oil burning in a home for months .You know that an Indo-Pak match is on when the streets are deserted even on a Sunday.You get it -We love Cricket ! I have also been an avid  cricket fan , though the nitty gritties of silly point has still been away from me yet I do enjoy watching a game of cricket .It gives you that thrill .All most  every adult in India  has played gully cricket at some point in his life , this is how crazy we are for the game ,it runs in our blood. But it becomes difficult to keep scores when you are out , on a metro or in the office .Earlier I remeber peple would be glued to their transistor radio sets when travelling and a whole crowd of cricket enthusiasts would gather around to hear the latest development in the ongoing match .People would cluster around T.V. sets and watch the proceedings . But with today's fast life , one can't afford to stay glued

Bachpan aur Khushi Ke Pal (Childhood and moments of Joy )

I remember my childhood ,we were always well behaved and disciplined children .The key word was discipline .Our parents were caring but there was always that hierarchy wherein the younger people of the family always had to heed the elders whether it be parents or siblings . We dared not question the decision of our elders leave aside disobey them .It was easier for us as we had brothers, sisters, cousins with him to share our lives and its various problems and seek their help . When I see today's children , most of the homes now have only two and sometimes only single child .In homes where the child is an only child , as parents we cannot expect to bring up our children in the way our parents brought us up , by which I mean that discipline cannot be the keyword in my relationship with my child since these only children do not have the luxury of the joint families and cousins to help them with growing up pangs .Not only the lack of the cushioning effect of a joint family , more
