My journey along with my grandmom - We are together

Who is waiting the most for you to come? Who will always cuddle , hug, comfort you and never scold you? Who will tell you interesting stories, make you happy, learn you and give advices? Who loves you the most and spoils you? - Of course, grandmothers.

My relationship with my grandmother  is very warm, we communicate friendly, we never argue, with beloved person never want to argue without a reason. So over summertime I spend a lot of time with my grandmother. We work together and spend holiday together.

The days pass, I’m growing and asking and waiting for my grandmothers advice. When I was a child I liked to complete with her, while she used to give the best beauty tips to me , I still follow her tips and they are best tips one can ever get.
She is the best grandmom in this world ,  I still remember the head massage she used to give with her special hand made oil ,It is the biggest stress buster in the world, no matter how bad my day used to be but her warm hands full of blessings on my head and all my stress is gone.

I remember, when I used to take a nap, she came by my bed and covered me with warm blankets. I felt so good and calm I feel asleep in a moment.
My grandmother taught me how to separate different types of flowers, their names, tells me how to grow them, when to plant them inside and when – outdoors. When I went to my grandmothers place the time runs past really fast. Together we planted flowers, rooted them. Later I bought some flowers with me, and planted them at my home. Now I have a big flower garden at my place and I’m talking care of it, plant new flowers. 

I can boast that my grandmother is very hard working, like an ant she hurries everywhere. She does everything on her own, makes a meal, takes care of everyone. I think it’s good, but not in her age, she has to care about her health. For that reason I stretch to visit her that I could help her, that she could take a rest.

My grandmom never left the works for the last day, so I learned from her that everything should be done just in time.
And the best part about her was ,she likes knitting, her grandchildren never have their feet cold. I still wear sweaters made by her.

She even reads a lot I see her with a book in her hands very often. How she manages to do all these things: no one knows. She likes to dress nicely, to go out to town, and she manages to do all these things with a smile on her face.So I have the best grandmother, I couldn’t exchange her to anybody. Time spent with her is the best because it’s spent with the most beloved person.

It is always interesting to listen to my grandmother’s stories about exile. I am so glad that after all, my grandmother is very strength, she never gives up and she knows how to be glad about small things. I can always ask my grandmother for advice because she has a good life experience and she has a modern view about life. I think that from my grandmother I learned how to be strength and don’t give up in hard life situations, to look positive in everything and be glad about simple things.

I can sum up the whole post as My grandmom has always been a source of inspiration and always been there for me when ever I needed her.

A start to a new life - but strings attached

I have just recently moved out of my parent's home for the first time at a relatively late age. I've moved into a flatshare situation with a friend who I've known on-and-off for a few years. It all happened quite quickly to be honest. I'd been thinking about moving out for a while, but despite offers from other friends I was always a bit too scared to leave the nest. However, I decided to throw myself into the latest offer and now, about a month later, I'm now in my own flat. Trouble is, I now am having these horrible feelings that I've bitten off more than I can chew.

For starters I've moved into the city, whereas before I lived out in the suburbs. I thought that moving to the city would get me out of the house more, which I thought was the problem I was having by still being at home: I was just hanging about my bedroom a lot and not living life. However, I find it all quite intimidating and not least bit exciting. It's all quite a harsh environment. Also there was never any real concrete reason for me wanting to move, besides a vague feeling that I should because of my age. I suppose I thought it'd give me some more independence, but I pretty much had that living at home. If I wanted to learn to cook and clean more, I could have just done it at home.

I'll also admit that I miss my family quite a bit already. I keep popping by the house every so often to collect belongings, and everytime I go there I don't want to leave. I'm already having these feelings of wanting to just abort everything and move back, and just pay the rent on my flat for the lease I've signed so I don't leave my friend in the lurch. But let's face it: that's really not an option. I'd be mortally embarassed to do such a thing, especially at my age. So instead I've resigned myself to sticking it out, at least until the lease is up. However, this is giving me a horrible "trapped" feeling and I'm scared how I'm going to cope. Sometimes when I think about the situation I feel quite positive, but the reality strikes me when I come back to the flat and the feelings of dread come back. I just feel so far away from everything I used to have. I was quite close to my family, and lot of my life was part of the small town I lived in. I feel I've lost all that, and for what?

Is it natural to have these feelings? Do they fade overtime or am I too much into living at "home" that I'll never break away from it? I sometimes wish I'd moved out, but not so far away - like maybe rented a small flat in the same town. I've got a car and it's not much to drive back home, but even then I still feel so far away and isolated.
Leaving the nest, whenever you do it, takes some adjusting for some people. What are the reasons for such strong attachments to home?

I know for me, mine were a very strong closeness with my family. It was hard for me to leave them from an emotional standpoint, because I was afraid we wouldn't be as close anymore in the same way. When I realized that we are, and that it actually strengthened our relationship in many ways (made our time together count, versus taking it for granted and sometimes wasting it), I stopped feeling so homesick.
But for a long while, every time I went home, I felt like you do...not wanting to leave, wishing I were still there. Many people don't identify with this, but they don't have the same relationship with their families that I do. So no matter were you go strings are always attached, even though we move back to our family the attachment which we have in our new life will also be so strong that we cannot get easily detached from it. Every home has its own story to tell.

Home - The ultimate place to find optimism

People, generally, are not born with either an Optimistic or Pessimistic view of the world. It is learned behavior - learned  through experience.
But being optimistic is not easy, that too when you had bad experience with life.
So where are we gonna go to search or find that optimism or positivity?
The answer is there is no better place than home to get the positive vibes.
Seeing your parents smile can make your day and fill you with the optimism and inner happiness
No matter how bad my day was at office when I reach home and mom gives a cup of hot tea and keeps her  hand on my head ,all the tension and that bad day feeling fades away.
Home is a place where I get all my positive inner strength.
Those lazy moments on Sundays and that hand made food by mom.
We never realize these small moments worth unless until we are away from home and  something bad happens at that time we miss that optimistic vibe of home.
Those mornings with sunlight from the window falling on your face. That breakfast gossips -Have we ever realize how much positive impact these small things make in our life.
Be grateful for what you got.
What you want is something out there in the future. But it is also important to view what you have in the right way to keep an optimistic viewpoint.
So appreciate the little and big things in life you have instead of focusing too much on what you don’t have.
Ask yourself: what can I be grateful for in my life right now?
When I ask myself that question I often come up with simple answers such as the roof over my head, the delicious food on my table, having the opportunity to sleep in and the people closest to me.
Be grateful to be alive. Be grateful to be here. I enjoy every season of the year.
Be it summer ,winters or rains.  And I’m grateful to be here to see that happen.
And to see this world still spinning around. I hope I never took things for granted before
§   Spend a few minutes in the morning on thinking about what you want and your goals. This sends you off to highly motivated and focused day.
§  Spend a few minutes being grateful for what you got. This sets you up for a positive mood throughout the day.
§  Exercise. This will help you release inner tensions and worry and fill the space they occupied within you with new energy

Why to search for happiness or optimism outside in the world while we can find it all inside our home too.
Life is good because it’s an incredible opportunity that you’re given -- and it’s a miracle -- and it’s an incredible opportunity that you have to turn it into whatever you want to turn it into.  And make what you can out of it.

ASUS Zenphone , My valentine :)

A week back  I gifted my self a Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG and it almost ended up being my ideal valentine I would have ever wished for.Guys can ditch , dump ,etc but with my Asus its a life time commitment :P.Its never gonna hurt me and leave me alone or gonna get bored of me. And the best part is,Its so damn attractive and good looking ,what more one could have asked from a life :P My best buddie,My lover,My life.What else you need in life when you have a smartphone like ASUS with you? No wonder its always gonna be my first love,my baby forever :) 

So here are the five reasons,Why its my ideal valentine ,

First reason ,
My Professional photographer. 
Its my very own personal photographer who always takes pretty pictures , selfies , etc with its very own 8mp pixel master camera.I mean who needs a bf or anyone to take cute pictures of you ,when you have your very own stylish photographer, and the best part is you won't have to pay its fees for its work.

 Second reason ,
My Entertainer
Its entertainment,entertainment and entertainment :P Yes its my 24*7 entertainment tool ,which never makes me feel alone.Its awesome processor with 64 gb expandable memory can almost do all the work.I can just store lakhs of songs and thousands of movies and  can never get bored.
so who needs anyone if you have such smartphone. And the best part here is that it never complains :P :P 

Third reason ,
My Organiser.
Its a boon for a disorganised and absent minded person like me.I mean I always forget birthdays,anniversaries etc and people close to me hate me for that but Asus has almost became my organiser.It helps me remember everything at every single step :)

Fourth reason,
My multi tasking speedy ninja.
 With its 2gb ram, It processes all the applications smoothly and as fast as ninja or speed ranger. No wonder why I love it so much. It never hangs in between while I go through multiple applications and processes all the games without any hitch :D

Fith reason ,
My connecter to the world :)
You can never feel alone. I can connect anytime I want to with family, friends and co-workers.I can do all of these wonderful things with this small little gadget that fits in my pocket . Can anyone give me any reason why I should not love my asus ?
Ok,now this is an extra reason, but as its a very important one :P so read on
Sixth and the best reason 
The Shopping
I rarely worry about how busy the malls are any longer. I can shop right from my asus via the internet or with the plethora of store apps which I can download without any hesitation that my phone will get struck if I download many apps. I can keep number of shopping sites and apps in my phone and do shopping when ever I feel like.Ufcourse when I have  balance in my debit card  or credit card,that's a different story :P

For today’s youth, that's us ;), logging onto a computer or phone and typing rapidly is second-nature.
I mean just look at all the texting we do, whereas picking up the phone and actually answering someone is often an alien notion.
In many ways it seems to fit in well with the younger generation, who seem to be happier to type rather than to speak on the phone.
One of the beauties of chatting is that receivers don’t need to be on hand when you send a text. Texting or chatting makes it easy to relay a casual message.
Phone calls require that we think quickly and then respond off-the-cuff; and if you’re the type of person who likes to weigh options, consider outcomes and then respond accordingly, phone calls put you at a serious disadvantage.
Here I have listed some of the advantages of chatting over phone call conversation.
·        It more than makes up for it with efficiency and clear communication.
·        Chat is very easy to access.
·        Chat offers the better level of communication, engagement and feedback than phone does.
·        There isn’t any queue; you don’t have to mess with different accents or trying to understand someone over all the background noise.
·        You can have access to a chat transcript for further reference, while you can't obtain a copy of your conversation on the phone.
·        One can multi-task and talk to multiple customers at the same time.
In short, chat offers a quick and easy way to talk without the message getting lost.
Chat is conversation I could control — utterly. I get to say exactly what I want exactly when I want to say it. It consumes no more time than I want it to and, to a much greater degree than is possible with a phone call, I get to decide if it takes place at all.

Trust me; you don’t want to be the obnoxious chatter bug in the quiet waiting room. In hushed settings, it’s more respectful to carry on with the calm tone of the room by sending a text message.
Just imagine, you’re just dozing off after a busy day when your phone rings and the person starts asking all the details about the product. How irritating, isn’t it?
Phone numbers, addresses, show times and recipe ingredients—these are all straightforward, brief messages that are easier to read and save than to remember from a phone conversation. Chatting, on the other hand, has the distinct advantage of being permanent, achievable and searchable, and allows prior conversations to be referenced and reviewed for accuracy or to refresh your memory. 
Setting time-based goals for your chats? Much easier. Set aside a certain amount of time to answer texts, and then take care of them when it’s convenient.

With Quikr Nxt, buyers and sellers can immediately connect with each other through chat across Quikr's mobile app, mobile site and even its desktop site. This feature will transform India's online classifieds market as it enables users to communicate with each other at their convenience and request more details about the product or service, without requiring a single phone call.

Be true to yourself

I totally agree that telling the truth is the most important thing in any relationship.
People should be truthful with other people from beginning in relationship and try to keep it as long as you want your relations to last for long time.
Everybody has already lied to someone. After that, most of the time people have felt guilty or bad if they expressed their own opinion.
Everybody should tell the truth all the time to feel more comfortable. When you tell the truth, it's easier to support your own idea or opinions because you don't have to invent a history.
Throughout history man has always thought it necessary to deceit on what is reality.
But history has proven time and time again that the truth is always best.
Many think it necessary to deceive, but doing so only leads to an exacerbated situation and temporary satisfaction.It may be helpful when something is by mistake, and you tell the truth on time. Maybe you can put a head together, and come up with some measures to fix it out. Therefore, the mistake will not be worse. Truthfulness is the greatest and most important of all human virtues

It would be the biggest lie of my life to say that I've never lied because at some point in our life we all have lied for something to someone. Mine was the time when first time in my life I had faked my marks :P although after growing up it was no big deal but during my childhood this guilt of lying actually killed me as I knew my mother had brought me up with lots of hardships. So it was the first time when I was in class 6th and my school was changed and due to the whole new environment and people around me, I actually had not concentrated on my studies and failed in the first term, now if had taken my reports to my mom she would have been really upset and due to the fear of upsetting her , I forged her sign over my reports and submitted to the class teacher but this guilt of faking her signature killed me.Till one month I was not able to face my mother and other people.
But one day I decided to confess this to my mother, no matter what happens any how I gathered the courage and told her everything. She got angry ufcourse and didn't say anything but that night she came near me kissed my forehead and said never lie to me in future no matter how hard the truth is never try to hide it with a lie because the truth will not hurt me that much how much your one lie can and my biggest fear is i'll never be able to trust you again .
You will have to lie thousands of time to hide one truth.
So my dear never lie and that was when after one month I had slept without guilt. How comforting the truth is, Right ?
Just watch this lovely video and understand it your self.

Truth is everything guys,just be true to yourself and you'll never be able to lie to anyone.

“Travel is the ultimate education,”

There is absolutely no substitute for travel and having those experiences firsthand.

Everyone loves to go on vacations; sometimes with our friends, sometimes with colleagues and sometimes with our own family.

The vacations we take our children on are different in a very special way - Kids see vacations very differently from adults! Their expectations, their curiosity, and the way they see things creates a unique experience on every vacation.

How should we ensure that kids have good time during their vacations. 
Why this question becomes so important here is because only if they have good time then we can enjoy our holiday too.

So here are some tips which would definitely help to let the kids enjoy themself and make their holidays memorable.

let them snap their experiences by their own selves 
Giving toddlers their own (robust, child-friendly) camera encourages them to observe their surroundings and focus on what interests them. You might be surprised at the results from their knee-high view. Amongst pictures of feet and wheels, my three-year-old has shot flowers, animals, helicopters, boats, rocks and rabbit poo.
Apart from taking photographs, there are lots of ways to help your children preserve memories of your trip. You could buy a postcard for each destination and help them to note a single memory on the back, alongside the date or their age. You could also get them started on collections of things that can be found in most places, such as badges, paperweights, model cars and boats or toy animals.

Get your kids drawing and listing things they’ve seen and interesting foods they’ve tried. Who knows, this might also encourage them to try different foods. 
Collecting postcards from places you visit and asking them to write themselves a message on the back means they can reach adulthood with a library of memories all their own.
Local toys are often worth seeking out, and make great gifts to take home. Apart from the novelty value, kids tend to like playing with the same things that local children have, and it can help with making friends.
If you plan on walking or cycling, remember that young children won't want to focus on getting from A to B, but on following their interests, so allow time for exploring.
Plan your route around the capacity of your youngest child and your ability to carry them. Try to choose a route where the scenery will change frequently. 
Good choices for walks or rides include following a river or canal towpath; there are no hills to negotiate, and there's the possible bonus of water to play in and birds to feed. It's also a good idea to combine walks or rides with an activity such as swimming or taking a short train ride.
Most toddlers love the novelty of travelling by train, bus and boat, so ditch the hire car and use public transport where possible.
If you’re heading out on a long journey have a collection of toys to be handed out once an hour. Handheld puzzles, tiny colouring books, stickers, wordsearches etc . 

I really hope my blogpost helps the other people out there to make their holidays with their kids memorable.

By this time you people would have come to know that how much I love shopping :D :D

So Birthday is just  an another occasion when I get a chance to shop with my mom's money :D :D

As yesterday was so engaged in doing link up of Aadhar card with the bank account and lpg account. All that long queues and rude people over the counter etc stuff .But some how accomplished that task also successfully….phewww.
So  yesterday I was not at all able to celebrate my birthday properly :(

Now what better can be rather than shopping to make myself happy :D :D So I decided to go on shopping all by myself today.  :)
And when it comes to shop , I just don't need any company in fact I prefer shopping alone coz the problem with me is , I think alot before buying any stuff.
I try that stuff once and then before buying I try that already tried thing again , I don't  know why but I have a very complexed shopping pattern. So the person who is accompanying me while shopping will either  go mad at me or  just run away. So now you guys know why I shop alone :P :P
One more thing to add is that guilty feeling which I  get after spending money on stuffs  is also an another aspect , but can't help it ya shopping to karna padta hi hai.
As from my earlier post you people would have also come to know how much budget is important , so I set my budget at 2k.
So what I bought  today…  :D :D check down the images :P

Shopping………………………………………  I mean like who doesn’t love shopping especially in girl’s case  :P
You know what nothing can uplift my mood rather than shopping but now the problem is that I can get upset over certain things (silly things )at mid night or such odd timings when I can’t go n shop , you know na, now at midnight who would keep the shop open and wait that vinisha’s mood is going to get upset let us keep the shop open? :P funny but true  but what should I do about my moods :P

So here comes to my rescue -------online shopping :D :D Its like some body has thought regarding moody people like me  and made this thing :D :D  Its  heaven Phewww…..
Now as usual it was almost midnight 3’Am and I was upset over a silly fight with my best friend  :( :(

So shopping was necessary :D Now the question arises where should I shop :P
Recently one of my colleague had bought one outfit from JABONG.COM and was very happy with the fit and service.So I thought lets give it a try.
Now the question is that what should I buy??
Ufcourse this is the biggest problem when you shop due to mood swings :P :P

Now my budget was 500rs because  if don’t keep the budget then I would end up shopping until my whole pocket money of the month gets over. So budget is necessary and I would thank my thinking that I had kept the budget because JABONG.COM had so many offers which were hard to resist and I would had ended up shopping above my limits :D
So I love bags to the core  be it a clutch , tote or sling, I just love them all. 
So it was decided that I would buy a sling bag as my current sling bag was quite old.
I was so amazed with the site, It was so easy and user friendly that it takes just seconds to find exactly what you want under your budget. 
I Just typed the price from 0 to 500 and there are so many product I found under that price.
so I just ordered the bag shown below

The estimated delivery date was after 15 days but that was ok ,I din’t mind but to my surprise it was delivered just after 5 days and I was really happy and jumping the packing was really good and the product  was intact and just the same what I had ordered .

With I really had a awesome experience and  I would definitely recommend for  people who are looking for good online shopping sites :)

On the road ,it is not the question of whose mistake,but the question of whose life.
If you want to be alive you have to make the adjustments .

 Blaming makes no sense on the road

So its just not one the person who is driving has to take care but  the one who is walking also has to share the equal part of responsibility as its a team work and everybody should take their own part in sharing this responsibility.

Why It is always the driver who gets blame for the accidents but I have seen so many incidents in my life where the persons walking on the road were on the wrong track and the one who is driving was only trying to prevent the accident. 
Think logically guys the driver will also need some time to stop the car but it is the typical mentality I've observed that its mostly the driver's msitake .

Now a days the worst habit I see in many people is that they walk with the headphones.I mean like why ??? 
 Ofcourse once you wear the headphone on the road even the person trying to give you signal through his/her car or bike horn you wont be able to hear.

Poorly maintained vehicles, rash driving, queer laws and scant respect for traffic rules also trigger accidents.

Traffic rules are way being taken for granted. Yeah I know our generation believes in saying that "rules are meant to break" but any thing is not more than a life, Right?. While driving on the road its just not your life but also the life of those  people who are walking or driving in your way.
How could we become so careless when the there is a question of so many lives.

Some of the solutions we should take way too seriously are ,

WEAR YOUR SEAT BELTS - If you don't wear , loss is yours and your family,atleast think about them.

DON'T ANSWER CALLS WHILE DRIVING - This is the worst habit  anybody can practise,please guys grow up. Your busy schedule don't have right to put anybody's or even your own life in danger- Got it ?
DON'T DRINK BEFORE  DRIVING - I mean like how many times everyone have to tell ? Are we nursery babies who are to spoonfeed for each and every thing.
OBEY ROAD SIGNS  - obeying is something not meant for you but at least if you follow others can walk and drive safely ,so please do it :) 
MAINTAIN YOUR VEHICLE - Please spend some of your hard earned money in servicing your car or bike - I mean your stinginess can cost you your life ,so please service your vehicle regularly.
Not following the above has always land some one or other in trouble
So don't blame but take the responsibility and be responsible.

So here ,
The Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., conducts the Nissan Safety Driving Forum (NSDF) in India as part of its safety driving promotion activities.
Under its Blue Citizenship CSR umbrella, NSDF by Nissan works to build awareness of safe driving in India. NSDF encourages drivers and passengers to wear seatbelts, and participants learn through interactive activities the importance of wearing seatbelts.Nissan seeks to support reducing fatalities and injuries caused by traffic accidents, and NSDF represents the company's commitment in contributing to young, vibrant and mobile India.
