- Keep one clove in your mouth, don't eat it at once
- Put 4-5 camphor in your handkerchief and tie it on your wrist, keep taking sniff of it frequently (every 5 min)
- Keep having sips of water every 5 min. (You would want to urine frequently but don't stop water consumption at all)
- Even if you ain't hungry, proper meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) shall be taken
- Keep eating something in between like mango bites (citrus toffee), fruits etc.
- Do take dry fruits, especially, almonds and raisins, they help with the cold and acidity respectively
- Do not eat chewing gum
- Don't smoke and drink on the trip
- Take deep continuous breathes. In cold, that may hurt your nostrils a bit but really helps in relieving headache and other AMS symptoms.
- Don't sleep on the way specially while covering high altitudes as sleeping reduces oxygen levels.
- Don't put cotton in your ears.
- When going higher altitudes, try and spend one night at intermediate elevations
- Don't exert your body at higher altitudes by indulging in physical activities or running
- If possible, don't fly directly to the high altitude
- Don't expose yourself to solar radiations
- Do not be over confident
Extreme AMS can be fatal, which is mainly because of lack of oxygen but that's very very rare. So stick to guidelines and consult your doctor before you head to the journey of your lifetime.

The woes and throes of finding Mr. Right.
The book talks about how in real life arranged dating works and in India. Dating is an undeniably daunting task, especially when you are looking for the real deal to settle down with.
When Dia, a 30-something woman, signs up on a dating website for people looking to get married, she realizes just how delightful, vexing, amusing and befuddling looking for the perfect husband can be. Based on her real-life experiences, this book is not a guide to dating, but rather a delightful collection of meeting potential partners, epiphanies about them and soul-searching questions that will make you see relationships without your rose-tinted glasses of love.
Highlight of the book.
For me there were there moments or you may say arguments put by the other when book truly took my heart away and them yeah any one can relate to easily and are so hilarious as well.
One, when the Author said, "First, The indignity of searching of a man and secondly, on the internet. Obviously, the universe is getting some cheap, cheap thrills."
It did remind me of Cheap Thrills by Sia and I immediately put that on my playlist.
Two, when she said, "You could sue me in a feminist court for saying this, but more often than not, unless the man is really keen on having the relationship, it simply won't happen. ... The simple truth hasn't changed in a million years.
Man no come out of cave = Man no like girl."
Well, I totally agree. Its still a man's world no matter. A pity yet real deal we ain't able to ward off.
There and I guess the one happening every single one is facing at their home, "Come good ole thirty five and its the reverse. 'Damn happiness, just get a man', seems to be the common refrain from all quarters."
But why is what I fail to understand.
Nonetheless, the book gives you some interesting anecdotes.
Enjoy reading this 197 pages book by Khushnuma Daruwala and is worth INR 250.
3 / 5. Its good but gets little boring in between but is full of real life anecdotes.

It was a new morning, the birds had not started to chirp but the morning made sense. It was going to be my first trip of 2017. I started early morning from my house at 5.30 am and reached Neral around 08:30 hrs. Looking forward to my first toy train journey, my two pals and I reached the station but to our dismay the trains were not running due to technical issues. Nonetheless, we clicked some pictures with the train which was standing still on the tracks without engine.
We took a taxi from Neral to Matheran and reached the Matheran parking by around 10:00 hrs. Since Matheran is a non-vehicle zone, you have to move on your foot or hire a horse to venture ahead inside the beautiful hill station.

In my heart I always longed to explore my city like a tourist but just couldn't. So I had made it my life's mission to see Lucknow from a tourist's eyes one day.
Tickets were booked and I boarded the train, still apprehensive if I will be able to see Lucknow. I was praying to God that I shall not fall sick and no such thing shall happen which will bar me from accomplishing my mission. In short, my plea was; God! No drama this time.
There's no dearth of food corners, thelas (food stalls) and up scale restaurants. In Lucknow you will never be empty stomach, courtesy, food at every nook and corner.
