BE KIND!

Howdy, My Lovelies!

Saturday, Cold outside and as usual in my blanket so thought of writing something valuable and worth reading for you people. You know what’s the best compliment any writer can ever get? When his/her audience starts connecting with his/her words and that is more of like a winning scene. You people have been very supportive on this journey and I have been thanking you in almost every of my blog post since I genuinely feel the need.

Shireen Manocha, who is the guest blogger for this week is actually someone whom I have admired throughout all my school life. The way she writes, the way she presents her work, her attitude towards living a positive life and the leadership qualities she possesses has what made her stronger and better with time.

Let’s get started!

So, what’s all on your To-do list? Dream big? Work hard? Follow your routines? Dieting? Completion of assignments? Have you ever thought of being kind? Ask this from yourself as you and only you have that answer. I read this somewhere that you can be anything in this world so why not be kind? Why not?

I actually come across so many people in my day to day routine and what I have always found lacking is Compassion. So, first of all, what actually is compassion? Compassion literally means “to suffer together.” It is defined as the feeling that arises when you are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering. Are you doing it enough for yourself or for somebody?

How can you be a compassionate person?

  • Find commonalities with other people
  • Don’t put emphasis on money
  • Be kind to yourself and others
  • Express gratitude
  • Teach others and help the needy
  • High emotional intelligence

Let’s face it, the world isn’t the beautiful place you imagined, with unicorns and rainbows adorning the sky, or as John Green so aptly put it, “The world isn’t a wish-granting factory.” 

People are mean and selfish, and the world at large is conspiring to put you down, and you have to deal with it, alone, for everyone you considered a friend turned their backs when you most needed them.

It’s at times like these, that pin you down by the throat, that you must work on your compassion and visualise a world filled with more love and less chaos – for you can bring this change. Your world has to be you, and this large existence in its entirety, you are your world, and create your own sphere of kindness and happiness for that is what will lead you to success.

A little inner peace, the happiness of doing something nice but also being a little less selfish and realising how the same world put someone else down too – Be their saviour. Be their saviour and they would remember you, and one day, I assure you, you would taste success, for success is fame and dynamics but it’s also passion and stability.

Compassion is another key to be successful in your path irrespective of which road you have chosen. Follow the patronus and you’ll be delighted with the upcoming.

BE SILLY. BE HONEST. BE KIND ALWAYS!

TO THE LAST MONTH!

Howdy, People!

So, this is the last month of this year. Before starting up anything, I would like to thank you, people, for constantly supporting me in this journey, to make me realise writing is what I’m best at and should continue with my work. Everyone reading this blog, just make sure to thank your loved ones for all the good times they had given you in this year. Cheers!

The blog titled ” TO THE LAST MONTH” is just a blueprint for all those who are actually willing to work hard for their dreams and desires, irrespective, of what circumstances they’re in, stood even after many failures and still want to make a change. Don’t wait for the new year to start and then you’ll be executing your decisions. Start from this day itself so that you don’t have to wait for anything and anyone!

Forget about those past 11 months and it’s time to focus on the present. Let’s give it a fresh and positive start so that you can execute every single plan or wish you just had in your mind which will be beneficial for you in long run.

I believe December is the most important month of the year as you can finish the year off strongly and make REAL PROGRESS when everyone around you is slacking off and thinking about the holidays. Don’t get carried away like everyone else especially if you’re behind on your goals and dreams.

Here are some quick tips which I want to share with you people!

  • Make the most of this month and work on your idea since everyone around you is relaxing and slowing down. Make the most of this time.
  • Work at your highest level and it’s the time to prepare yourself for the upcoming year.
  • It’s the right time to avoid distraction and make it happen, what you have always missed out!
  • Stop complaining and whining about every small thing. Patience is what you need and just believe in yourself and your timings. Things will get in your way at the right time and in the right manner.
  • Occasional practice gives occasional results. Dream every time and work on your idea daily.
  • You’ve got to dedicate yourself every day to master yourself. Your belief in yourself will what get you on the top.
  • Invest your time in yourself and for yourself. Put in every single effort required to develop the right skill and knowledge in this so competitive world.
  • It’s the right time to build your network, to meet new people and gain more knowledge.
  • Experimentations may get you failed but the experience to fail will teach you how to get one step ahead.

Trust me, It will be alright. Don’t ask me how I know this, I do. Even in the darkest of our times, the sun will still rise and the stars will still appear at night. Trust me, you have that power and strength to move in the direction that inspires you.

Follow your heart, do what you believe in and create beautiful work that touches your souls and simply takes your breath away!

Make the most of this last month and don’t forget to thank your loved ones.

See you in the next one, people!

Autumn Style, Done Right!

Howdy, People!

Relaxing on a Lazy Sunday and still not off from work. Argh!

So you must be thinking what next I’m going to cook up this time? Well, this time I’m coming up with fashion and lifestyle for you people. I’ll be sharing all my knowledge on the grounds of fashion and lifestyle with some cool tips which you’ll get to know super soon.


AUTUMN is considered to be the most amazing season when it comes to fashion and styling and that is the same reason why I have started with autumn. I have always felt that Autumn has a secret relationship with fashion and lifestyle. Do you think the same? Anyway, how’s autumn treating you people?

Don’t let your style game fall away with autumn leaves!

Hereby, presenting my first look of this Autumn season. Check it out!

Coming to the outfit now, just kept it very simple and elegant. Chose denim for this look as it is actually the comfiest wear in this season, will definitely add grace to your overall look and yeah, will never let you down. My love for denim will never fade!

Glacial blue jeans are what I prefer with denim more than black. I know black is a universal colour which does go with every outfit but when wearing denim, the only mistake we people generally do is by wearing any dark jeans with denim which actually does not suite well than any light coloured jeans. Fellas, keep that in mind!

Denim with light coloured jeans suits and looks the best!

Like any good outfit, the accessory took it to the next level. I styled it with a plain black scarf to pep it beyond the norm. The right scarf can add boatloads of charm and personality to your look, a great consolation during those frigid, unforgiving months of winter.

 

Bought this really amazing denim from Flipkart under Highlander’s Denim and these jeans from Wrangler, shoes from Adidas Originals and watch from Carson watches.

Love the denim? You can buy now at the link –

That’s all for today. I hope it was worth going through. All ears for your reviews now!

See you in the next one, people!

Prankster, Gurugram

Howdy People!
So, It’s a new start and I hope you like this. Here, I’ll be reviewing all the cafes (veg as well as non-veg) surrounding Delhi-NCR. Since Delhi is full of foodie souls, this is the right location to check the place before you go!
In this blog, I’ll be reviewing one of the most hyped cafe in Sec 29, Gurgaon, presently, Gurugram, named PRANKSTER. As its name, even the place is unique in itself.
I want to start by quoting that “Food is a journey that has endless layers of flavour if you wish to get into its depth enjoy it simply.”
There are a few thing which has to be kept in mind before visiting any place. On reviewing the place myself, here are some few things I want to share with you guys!
Seating section – When it comes to seating, there shouldn’t be any compromise in the comfort. The cafe is divided into several sections named classroom, canteen, mixology lab, hostel room, library and a bar, each having a capacity of 10-12 members at least.
Ambience –This place is full of young energetic  crowd. An amazing place for couples as well as those looking for ‘good girl crowd’.
Cocktails – Prankster punk, Lemon juice, Orange juice and Vodka amazingly mixed and served.

Starters – 

  • Nitro cooked Dahi Bhalla Ice cream :

The dahi was frozen in form of ice cream and served with chatpata Bhel over it.

  • Choley kulche doughnuts:

Here the twist was the kulche were in form of doughnuts and stuffed with Choley. Served with amazing carrot mousse and Choley Tari.

 

     

  • TT lamb chop:

The lamb was very very tender and it’s something that can never be found in any other place.

The lamb was tender, juicy and very delicious.

  • Paneer tikka Fattir (Pizza) :

The pizza base was that of pattez making it very unique but equally tempting.

  • Gallati Boti Lamb Cigars, Gari Mayo :

This was again a non-veg retreat.

The lamb was so damn tender and mouth watering with every bite. With the first bite itself, it was on my recommendation list.

 

Main course –

1.Dal Makhani – Again is palatable and amazing.

2. Rampuri Gosht – Very tender and deliciously cooked mutton, a must try by all non-veg lovers.

3. Panner Makhni – The Gravy was made sweet from coconut milk having grated coconut too , panner being tender in taste made the dish very unique in taste with a prankster touch.

4.Keema Pulao -This was something different for me. The pulao served with chopped keema chicken made the dish bliss for Non-veg lovers. The aroma of the chicken can be felt in rice too.

5.Dessert-Mango cassata Swiss roll – A cassata formed mango cake served with mango puree made it too Mangolicious for all.

**Recommended**

Non-Veg

  1. TT lamb chop
  2. Gallati Boti Lamb Cigars, Gari Mayo
  3. Keema Pulao
  4. Rampuri Gosht

Veg – Paneer tikka fatir, Panner Makhni

Are you doing it enough for yourself?

Howdy, People!

Winters round the corner and It’s actually cold outside by now. But I must say, winters have to be the best of all the seasons. Do you think the same? Do you realise this is the last month of the year? Have you done enough to make it a successful year? Have you fulfilled all your desires you wished for as resolutions? Have you done enough for yourself? Again, It’s a big NO! Majority of you are not performing above the bar and that is actually lagging you behind in the race.

Are you ready to do something for yourself? This is the right time to start!

Ruchika Kachroo is the guest blogger for today. Her way of writing has actually inspired me and that’s the reason I want her to directly interact with you people. Not just her writing inspires me but also her attitude towards living a healthy life. Let’s find out what she has to say about this.


‘Hey there people! So let me ask you all, ‘Are you doing it enough for yourself?’ No, you won’t get any answer by just reading it. Take a minute out, close your eyes, make yourself comfortable and now think. Ask yourself the same question all over again. Are you actually there for yourself? Are you actually living your life like you have always wanted to? Are you content with whatever you have? Are you pursuing something that was ‘life goals’ to you or actually that mattered more than anything to you? Done?

Okay. Are the majority of your answers no? If that’s the case then you are actually not doing enough for yourself. Need a solution? Worry not. I’m here just to help you guys and let you guide on a right path that’d lead to self-discovery. Here we go.

  • Do less but with more focus – You DON’T need to rush. Slow down. It’s your life and nobody is after you. So do less but with full concentration and mindfulness. Allow yourself to enjoy and make every moment of yours count. Happiness doesn’t come from the things you do, but rather the attitude you bring to the things you do.

 

  • Take the pressure off – Remember, you are a free bird! Make yourself a contented person so that you can access your creativity, intelligence and inner wisdom easily.

 

  • Stop the compare and despair – Do you often compare yourself to others. Why? Just because their social media accounts are more happening as compared to yours? Just because your picture doesn’t receive the same number of likes as their picture does? Trust me, they have their own problems. They are exactly the same person as you. It’s just that you have your own path to walk and your path has value.

 

  • You can do anything but not everything – Remember this. Maybe we can have it all, but not all at once. Remember that line from the movie ‘Ye jawani hai deewani’ where Deepika says, “Jitna bhi try karo, life mein kuch na kuch toh chhutega hi. Toh jahan hai, uska maza lete hai na.” That’s exactly how it is. You are exactly where you need to be right now. Just know that no matter what happened today, you made progress.

I believe, if you’re not doing enough for yourself, whatever may be the reason, the most effective rule is to do those things that can make you happy, more often. I think It’s a pretty good way to start with anything. So, make a little list of all the things that make you happy and then all you have to do is fill your life up with those very things and make them part of your existence, part of who you are!

Once you’ve found happiness within yourself, believe me, you’ll no more be tired of the disappointments knocking your door, again and again, you’ll no more be tired of anything. Educate this beautiful mind of yours.

Thank you, Ruchika for investing your time here!

I hope it was influencing enough and believe me, you’ll surely reach where you have always wanted to be. Utilise this last month well and enjoy the breeze of winters.

See you in the next one!

I BELIEVE IN YOU!

XOXO

 

 

Mindset is everything!

Howdy, Readers!

Before starting up with anything I just want to thank each one of you for loving me and my post this much that I have reached a milestone of 1k views. I know this milestone is not that big enough but this feeling is amazing! Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful surprise in such a short time span. You people are amazing!

Mindset-is-Everything

MINDSET IS EVERYTHING IN DRIVING TO YOUR SUCCESS!

It’s all about our mindset and to be precise, what I believe is that the ‘mindset’ has a key role in our lives, our experiences, everything we do, everyone we meet and what not. But at the end of the day, all we have is ‘ourselves’. It’s in our hands how we choose to see the world, everything and everyone around us. Every second of every minute of every hour of every day and to the rest of our lives, we do have the opportunity to create something big out of this life, to give our lives a meaning out of all the emotions we go through.

Whether you like it or not but each one of us does fall into either of the category – Positive or negative correlation and you know what? Sometimes, we aren’t even aware of in which category do we actually lie. Readers, what category do you think you belong to, huh?

Positive Mindset  – You people are actually going great but possessing a strong powerful positive mindset, you just need to have one simple mental adjustment. Instead, of focussing over what you can’t change, just focus on all those things that you can change. Focus on your opportunities rather than your problems.

Always say this to yourself, yes it may be difficult but well, it’s not impossible. So, to all the readers, yes I believe in you!

Negative MindsetIt has been said well that ‘You cannot live a positive life with your brain full of negativity’. Shrug it off, let it go and move on. Don’t let a bad yesterday dictate a bad tomorrow. You just have to stop thinking in extreme, as this demon is affecting you more than anyone. Stop generalizing the negative in you. Is your negative thinking making it harder than it needs to be? It’s the time, step out and maximise the positivity in you. Read good books, hang out with your friends, spend some quality time with your parents and the most important thing, try as much as you can to be around the children or play with them. They are the happiest and the most cheerful positive beings!

textgram

I hope this was effective and may influence some of you to change into a positive being. I just want to conclude here by saying that-

Fame or integrity: Which is more important?

Money or happiness: Which is more valuable?

Sucess or failure: Which is more destructive?

Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you! 

See you in the next one, people!

XOXO

 

 

Walk in Courage!

So, another week. Another day. And I’m back here for you guys with another write up on another important discussion. So, you guys must be thinking what next I’m going to write for you people. Is it? Just like you people, even I get excited when it comes to writing the content every week.

WALK IN COURAGE. What actually does that mean? 

textgram_1510934490

Why do we get discouraged? Why do we feel alone and lost when everything is going fine? Have you ever experienced that anxiety running down your nerves, when you’re lagging behind on anything? Do you feel something relatable? Do you? It’s just that we see the problems and our challenges bigger and stronger than us, ultimately what discourages us and we feel like quitting.

Every time you compare the problem with yourself, nothing, but only heart will bear the burden of disappointments, start comparing your problems with your god, courage will fill in your heart and life will get so easy and serene. Is it so difficult to walk now?

According to you, what is actually meant by courage? Courageous are those who have the will to leave their bad past behind and work for their good one. For me courageous are those, who have fallen end number of times but still wish to get up and come back stronger, courageous are those who don’t wait for the critics to define them. They create their own definition. Knowing when to walk away is what I call as wisdom, being able to walk is what I call as courage and walking with your head held high is what I define as dignity.

blog_stairs_1540

Believe me, it’s not always the joy ride it seems. No journey is ever smooth but it’s the courage which may change our serious incidents into life-changing experiences and like I’ll always say, never stop whatever may happen next. The moment you stop is the same moment you may lag behind. It’s just your road, check on the milestones, drive and just enjoy your ride. Make it worthwhile! 

See you in the next one, people!

I BELIEVE IN YOU!

ONE MILE AT A TIME

HELLO, TO ALL THE READERS!

IMG_20171109_193656_759

It’s actually great when you meet a person with the same thought process and vision. It was great working and discussing ideas with you. Naivedya Naithani, who is the guest blogger for today wants to share something with you. So, let’s get started!

ONE MILE AT A TIME – will it be enough to reach the destination you have chosen? Walking just a mile sounds so low, I mean who doesn’t want to have success and wealth in a short time span? But, My friend, there will be challenges in front of you, but believe me, the distance between where you are and where you want to be is not that great enough. You will reach where you have always wanted to be but travel only “one mile at a time”. Things will distract you, will try to keep you off the track, shortcuts may come in front of you but you have to keep going in spite of what may come next in your path.  You just got to believe in yourself and move step by step, just like the stairs. Disbalance can get you down to the point from where you have actually started. Are you ready for the challenge? Will you be able to make it to the last? Ask yourself!

ONE MILE COVERED IS ONE MILE LESS LEFT TO BE COVERED!

Road (life) is full of milestones (accomplishments), hoardings (directions) and if one figure out them well, it’s very easy to reach your destination (dream).  It doesn’t matter how fast you travel but what matters is how far you travel. Running too fast can thrash you down, running too slow can lag you behind. Maintain your speed depending on the circumstance, and accordingly, implement your decisions. 

To travel far you need to inspect at the regular interval, the condition of your car (life) and carry Stepney (solution) for a Flat tyre (problem).  It’s these small things that help you maintain the pace, but at the end, it’s very important to complete the mile, look back to analyse how much you have covered till now.

Here’s one tip I want to share with you guys! Have you heard of the term ‘To do list’?

Yes, writing your To-do list sounds pretty straightforward but it is a list of things you want to accomplish in a given week or month and I actually find it very helpful. On your way to success, these small things have to be taken care of. 

  • Believe in writing it the night before as you can hit the ground hard, the next morning. Writing down the things actually, works more than we can ever think.
  • Qualify the content – the things you want to do and the ones you don’t want to.
  • Maintain your time estimates. 
  • Use sections and revaluate at the end. 

Till then, keep working on yourselves. Feed yourself with some good stuff and create your own reality. Do what excites you but, never stop!

I just want to conclude by saying – Don’t chase love, money or success. Believe in becoming the best version of yourselves and those things will chase you. See you in the next one. 

I BELIEVE IN YOU!

 

ROAD TO RECOVERY

IMG_20171104_155135_473

Hello to all the readers out there! It really feels happy to be back here, writing something relatable and fruitful for you guys. Before starting with anything, I LOVE YOU GUYS LIKE SO MUCH! Thank you for all the love and support, you people have been giving me from the past few days and believe me this is really exceptional. :’)

So, what can you infer from the title of the blog? No? Let’s get started with today’s discussion.  The blog titled “ROAD TO RECOVERY” has been one another important discussion which I really wanted to have with all of you. This is basically a sequel to “TO THE ROAD NOT TAKEN” and it emphasis on my peculiar nature of understanding the meaning of road.  I want to write this for all those people who have been stressing out a way too much and here’s a chance for them to bounce back from all the failures and traumatic incidents.

Fears, failures, and disappointments have let us down in many important phases of our lives. This is the same time when we actually felt, we are struggling and living alone here, cursing and abusing our lives and at times, it really becomes difficult to get out of such a phase. So, what should be done now? Do you really think you can get out of this all alone? My friend, all you need is the right road – The right path – The right guardian to make you understand and help you out in this low phase of life. Ask yourself now, do you really have that friend? The answer is within you!

You know what’s the biggest mistake we tend to do? We don’t share such personal things with anyone. Ultimately, we find ourselves chocked up, struck with so many difficulties and end up sharing with none. I mean, we humans are so complex and life is much more intricate. You’re not alone here, each one of us here is facing some challenge or the other, so, believe in sharing as it relaxes your mind and makes you stress relieved. It’s the time to “recover” from what has already been done!

I can understand what is actually running down your throat but believe me, it’s over. You don’t have to stress out. You don’t have to worry anymore. It’s the right time to move onto better things. Choose the road you are willing to traverse and move on. Lead yourself to the road of recovery!

Road to recovery

It’s the time to bounce back from all the failures. Unwind yourself, seek alternative ways of doing things, be close to your family and friends, discuss your problems, discuss your needs, Invest time in your hobbies, and as I always say, wait for that right opportunity. Wait for it, make your move and strive. Wide open your eyes and the world is actually beautiful and serene, out here. You just got to have that right vision, My Friend!

I BELIEVE IN YOU. YES, YOU CAN DO IT!
