Say Hello To 2016 From A Galaxy Far Far Away

Image
I love throwing parties. There is a different high in being the center of attraction and gathering praises. Mind you, it’s not a cakewalk. A lot of planning and preparation goes into it. There is food, drinks, sitting arrangements, decoration and entertainment that needs to be taken care of. But it all starts with a theme. Well, this year we are soaked in action with Star Wars latest flick. So, I thought of hosting a party on Star Wars Theme. I graciously borrowed ideas from HP Star Wars Special Edition Laptop to plan the finer details. Have a look at what would I do to entertain guests and ring the New Year in style -
Inspiration behind Party Theme Source Invitation Starting with invites, I would make it striking, laden with Star Wars effect. It should arouse everyone’s interest so that they RSVP instantly. Using Aurebesh fontthat comes preloaded in Star Wars Special Edition Laptop, I would design the invitation. Front side in Aurebesh and back side in English to make things clear. I wil…

4 Apps That Make My Life Easy

Image
What’s a smartphone without apps? It’s no better than a landline, right! I can’t imagine my smartphone without a few of the apps, which make my life easy and fun. First thing I do every morning is to check these apps. Yes, that’s how I begin my day. These apps are my way to connect with the world on my tiny gadget. I keep myself abreast of all around the globe, communicate and prepare myself for the day using these apps.
Gmail - I work online and to get instant notifications from clients, this app comes in handy. I have enabled push notifications and hence, I never miss a mail. It helps me to be in touch with my work… sometimes also with friends, as I don’t use Facebook app on my phone. So, if anyone wants to ping me on urgent basis, they use gmail. Plus, on android phone, I can download drive, blogspot and calendar, and sync my work and personal life on my mobile.
The Weather App - I am addicted to it. I love checking weather every now and then. Before stepping out of the house, I chec…

Piya wahi jo sab kuch khaye aur nakhre na dikhaye

Image
As a child when anyone asked what I wanted to be, I was very clear and focused. I wanted to be a doctor and a wife. To be very precise - I wanted to be a ‘good looking’ doctor and the ‘most beautiful’ wife, jaisi movies mein hoti hain - tip top! Two exemplary ladies were my source of inspiration - Rekha Ji and Madhuri Dixit. Honestly, I connected with Madhuri more. After watching that scene from ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun,’ where Madhuri all dressed up in pink satin dress, serves God-only-knows-how-many-dishes to Salman Khan, I knew for sure I wanted to be a wife.
I imagined cooking in neatly tucked sari, serving my husband spoonfuls of halwa between oodles of love and seductive glances. ‘Yeh tumne apne hathon se banaya hai’ - was my second favorite sentence. First being - hamari beti sarvagunn sampann hai! I started my ‘Wife-Training’ rigorously. I cooked, I baked, I burnt and in between all that, borrowed my mom’s maroon saree for practice. The low point of this practice regime was not bur…

#SupportMySchool - Rebuilding and Reviving 1000 Schools

Image
It is a school where we get our first lessons of life. School imbibes not only the textbook knowledge, but also acts as a foundation that helps us build a strong personality. I’ve picked up a lot of good habits from school - washing hands before eating was mandatory is my prep school, and till junior school I learned many such habits. Sadly, not everyone is as lucky as I was. I went to a good public school. A large population of our country goes to Government schools where the facilities are in a deplorable state. Forget about a good toilet facility, many don’t have proper classrooms with desks or benches, all of these have resulted in high dropout rates in the past. Have a look at these statistics about government schools in our nation's capital - We all know the importance of education to build a nation. A close look at our school system and reasons for high absenteeism raised many issues - top being lack of infrastructure. There are no benches in the classroom, drinking water, p…
