Adventure of Blackbeard

When I got the Colgate hamper in my post I was wondering how will I weave a story around the characters it carries. But my lil bro was more than happy. He cut them into the beautiful characters and gave me this great Colgate story with a morale.

Adventure of Blackbeard

An unadulterated Coral Reef for a long time. Beauty which cannot be defined in words as per the legends but still not a travel hub. Surprising?

This area as people say is a house to great flora and fauna, some lovely and some deadly creatures and some hidden secrets. Once upon a time the Blackbeard set foot on his pirate ship and left for this mysterious coral reef with his treasure map which was passed to him through his forefathers.

The Game of Life "Stolen Hope" : Book Review

Third of the 6 book series "Ramayana: The Game of Life" is "Stolen Hope". A tale retold by Shubha Vilas following closely Valmiki's and Kamba's Ramayana for modern audiences.


In the first book the author covered the period of Rama's life in sync with the twelve beautiful years in Ayodhya's life.

In the second book he talked more on what defines the main characters like Rama's strong will, Sita's calmness, patience & resilience and Lakshmana's selfless services towards his elder brother and sister in law. 

In here, the third book continues with the trio's exile and their many expeditions and experiences. This book basically covers how they hop from one place to another in 13 years to finally get stabilized at one place suggested by Sage Agastya.

Catch up on lost growth

Being a parent is difficult. Well I don't know but that's what my parents keep telling me.

What really bothers them the most about their kids is their health and nutrition. But every kid ain't that privileged who would start developing from a young age. Some are though given proper food may not develop at a good rate and some may just be nutrients deprived for many reasons. Catching up on lost growth ain't easy but is necessary for a healthy future.

Window to Middle East

Travel is life and I say this all the time. Being bitten by wanderlust bug from childhood, guess it’s in my DNA. As a kid I always used to tell my parents on how I want to travel across the world specially the countries of Europe and Australia but Middle East never caught my fancy.

Recently I got an opportunity to visit Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan by the Jordan Tourism Board, and I thought why not? After all, another name of travel is to explore the unknowns.

Ahlan Wa Sahlan to Jordan!
