Before you go Trekking ...

Image
Trekking is defined as a long arduous journey made on foot but to me it is something that lifts my spirits and challenges me to the limits .I have done small treks in my younger days but ever since my friend shared his account of the Chadar Trek and The Everest Base Camp treks , I am dying to go on more challenging treks.


The Chadar (meaning blanket) trek is one such route that has been used since ancient times for transportation when the Zanskar river freezes down . The Zanskar region is located towards the south-east of Leh and is enclosed by the Himalayan , Zanskar ranges and mountains that border Zanskar and Kashmir valley.This Chadar trek basically  connects villages in the Zanskar valley  with Chilling  which is on the road to Leh, along the frozen Zanskar River. It is a hugely challenging trek where in one has to walk over the frozen river in bone chilling cold(with temperatures dropping to -30 degrees C ) carrying a large backpack .A task which needs peak physical fitness and …

Best Friends Forever !

This 8th October 2016 will be a historical moment as at 8 PM , Zee TV will bring together two living legends of Indian cinema -  Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha ,for the very first time on a television chat show- "Yaaron Ki Baraat".It will be such a delight to watch theses legends sharing the story of their friendship .
The show will be hosted by the very popular Sajid Khan and Riteish Deshmukh and I am so looking forwards to seeing these legendary friends share small anecdotes of their friendship.

While on the topic of friendship ,let me today share my own little story of friendship .My best friend to this day is my school friend Sonika . 
People feel we are like chalk and cheese –poles apart even in our physical appearances. Herself being an imposing fair doe with a flawless complexion and myself a thin, brown girl who was often mistaken for being a “south Indian “ because of my well-oiled plaited hair! She is a  pukka carnivore and I am a pure vegetarian .She is s…

My Experience with Permanent Hair Reduction through Laser treatment

Image
Hello Girls !

I am sure many of you must hate scurrying to the beauty salon for  that last minute waxing like me .
With a busy work schedule and kids , taking time out for yourselves is a big luxury.Add to it the fact a that most parlors  hardly ever open before 10 a.m. and after 8pm and you always need to book an appointment in advance too.

Of late I had been getting offers from some Beauty and Skin clinics to try out their laser hair removal , but I was sceptic .I was sceptic ,because from what I had heard - it is very painful and needs regular visits plus it is a long term commitment because a single sitting does not root out the hair .You need at least 6-7 regular sittings about 4 - 6 weeks apart to see a significant reduction in hair follicles .So I kept saying no to laser hair reduction .

But a few months back , I had to appear for an event and needed to get a waxing appointment .I managed  to be there on time but despite having an appointment, I had to wait for a good thirty mi…

According to the statistics released by W.H.O. on World Health Day, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are now  the leading cause of death globally. About 38 million  people die every year from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) which includes cancer, heart diseases and stroke, diabetes, and chronic respiratory diseases .Out of the these ,82% premature deaths occurred in developing countries like India .






But all is not lost yet , here is the silver lining to this dark cloud .

Recent findings from the World Heart Federation reveal that even small lifestyle changes like being active, eating better, and staying happy can make your heart up to 50% healthier.

This rang a bell with me and as I hold the finger of my young one , I make a  promise to myself to make changes to my lifestyle and stick around even after twenty years to see my kids blossoming .

1. Being Active  - I have made it mandatory to walk at least 10,000 steps every day- come what may ( this I manage with little help from my fitne…
