TinyOwl's Wisdom

‘What’s for dinner?,’ first question Mr asks when he returns from office. No niceties, no sweet gestures - just straight to the point. Well, you must have guessed, Mr is a big time foodie. And, so am I. We have gone to great lengths to eat what we want - once we drove in a snow storm to eat Choley Bhature. We battled through slippery roads and winds gusting to 35 miles an hour. Our dedication to food and food fixes have created a lot of mess and food fights - snatching the last bite of pizza, emotional blackmail over late night ice-cream are rather common between us.

Our arduous journeys to food have resulted in many adventures too, but our latest food adventure was simply out of the world country. Why country? Read on…

Mr loves McDonald’s french fries. Why not? It is crispy, yummy and when the weather is great, those piping hot delicacies are heavenly. So, few weeks back when we were vacationing in the Tho…

How I Met My Brother, Finally!

Image
My brother is seven years younger to me. As a little girl, no one waited for him like I did. No one... not even my poor mother who carried him for 9 months. Every time my mother came back from her regular checkups, I went straight to her bedroom and searched both sides of my mother. ‘Mommies always bring babies from the hospital,’ my little mind thought. I used to pace around my mother’s bed, I used to be in a constant state of worry - ‘Where is my brother?’ There were days I blamed my mother, ‘She must be late and they closed the hospital.’ Maybe, she didn’t like the babies available. Ok, let’s wait till they update the stock! Trust me, it was very taxing to work through my emotions.

But my worst memory of my kid brother popping in this world was when I saw my mother lying on the bed and a strange thought came to my mind - we kept new things in the storeroom adjacent to the bedroom and I thought, maybe, my mother kept the new baby on her woolen trunk. Oh boy! What if he falls off? My …

WASH - Paving the Way for Healthier India

Image
Do you know hundreds of people die of preventable diseases each year, which are caused due to improper sanitation? Do you know waterborne disease kill over a lakh in India? These staggering numbers are an indication why we are still considered a developing nation. Our system has failed to provide basic amenities like water and sanitation to a major chunk of population.  

Hydration is an important aspect of our survival and hence access to clean drinking water becomes our prime need. As we all know water makes more than half of our body composition and we lose water with every activity, including breathing; both the quantity and quality of water consumed are important. There are many regions in our country where water is not easily available - Kutch Region. And, there are many places where water is available, but it’s contaminated with bacteria or chemicals - in industrial towns and rural parts of the country. The scenario is not very good, even in our metro cities, for example - slums …

A Tailor-made Portfolio by #FundsIndia

Image
Gone are the days when there were a limited number of investment options in India. With concepts like ‘Make in India’, stable government, better reforms and growing GDP, the trend is changing. Rise in income coupled with awareness among the public has led to a surge in the number of ways one can invest. It won’t be wrong to say that traditional methods are taking a backseat. And, new investment methods which are in accordance with the booming economy are becoming popular. New India Portfolio by #FundsIndiais one such investment that has caught my attention.

love a man who listens your worries, your silence, your dreams love a man who knows what having you means
hold and kiss his rusty hands they will build you a castle so big his sweat and love will shine through brick by brick

soothe his parched soul gently weave a silken knot-free bond your relation will sail high tides be ever so strong
love a man who sees through your fake smile love a man who cares to hold your hand for a while
no riches will tempt you
