                      You start dying slowly if you do not travel, if you do not read, If you do not listen to the sounds of life, If you do not appreciate yourself. You start dying slowly When you kill your self-esteem; When you do not let others help you. You start dying slowly If you become a slave of your habits, Walking everyday on the same paths… If you do not change your routine, If you do not wear different colours Or you do not speak to those you don’t know. You start dying slowly If you avoid to feel passion And their turbulent emotions; Those which make your eyes glisten And your heart beat fast. You start dying slowly If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love, If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain, If you do not go after a dream, If you do not allow yourself, At least once in your lifetime, To run away from sensible advice… (Pablo Neruda ) I rem

BBlunt Dry Shampoo Review

Image
Yes ! We have all faced those days when you are in between your hair wash days  and some important event comes up or when you are hard pressed for time and no time for  shampoo ! Dry shampoos are not a new concept , they have been here for the last few years but I got totry it recently only . So here goes my review ...                                     Price - Rs 250 for 18gm/30 ml , this can give me four to five dry washes . How to use - Shake well efore use .Hold can in an upright position ,six inches away from the hair and spray evenly close to the roots .Leave on for two minutes .Massage the scalp and then brush thoroughly .                                            PROS of  BBlunt Dry Shampoo 1. Very handy little bottle to carry in your purse .that means you can even use it in your office itself before rushing off  to an after office party ! 2. Good for those wintery days when you do not want to wash the hair but still want to have bouncy    hair . 3.

#ShareTheLoad - Women's Day - Some thoughts

Image
            76% of married men in India believe that not helping with laundry at home still makes them a great role model for children . 2 out of every three children think that household work is a mother’s job . 65% married men in India agree that their children replicate their behavior at home . ( Based on data generated from men, women and children(age 10to 14) who were in agreement with the above statements as per a 4-city (542 person) survey conducted by an independent third party agency in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad in January 2016 ) source                        Women are now omnipresent ,which is a good thing considering they were not even considered worthy of voting rights in The Unites States of America till 1940 and Saudi Arabia giving them this right only in Decemeber 2015 . But there is still a problem . The problem lies in the fact that not only are today’s women working full-time, but they are also fulfilling their traditional role at home as

Till Sloth do us Apart - some promises to be extracted this Women's Day

                 Every year we women get tons of " Happy Women's Day "wishes and messages from friends and family wishing us "Happiness änd Joy " or " Power to the Women ". So what does Women's day mean to me ? I am lucky enough to come from a family that could provide me with a decent education and gave me enough exposure to the outside world so that I could face the world without any fears or apprehensions .But I belong to the privileged urban minority .Till today ,to so many of my sisters out there , who are less fortunate than me , the aspirations and dreams on Women’s Day must be so much more  diverse from mine  and sometimes heartbreakingly simple . Empowerment still means an access to education ,access to healthcare, safety ,employment ,equal opportunities and even the right to be born if you are a female foetus .  It could be a simple desire to be able to attend school like her brother and get an education .It could be the access
