Happiness in Small things. #CelebrateLife

Now money has become so important and integral part of life that we have stopped deriving happiness from small things around us. But to make the most out of this life we must take meaning and happiness from small things around us, How about playing with the kids and observing them, Listening to the chirping of birds or just looking at the butterfly. This in turn Make big occasions unnecessary, making us to enjoy the moment you’re living in.

Le Corbusier has said The home should be the treasure chest of living.

In big city where space is such a big constraint, we ignore or have very limited opportunity to do small things which gives us a lot of happiness. For Example. In childhood we used to have our own flower garden, kitchen garden in our home. The blooming of flowers, growing up of vegetables gave us immense happiness. In most of the homes now garden seems unviable as there is rarely any space. But you can still make your balcony or the window space as your flower/kitchen garden. Good to some good real estate developers are creating space in apartments where you can have some flower/vegetable tree for yourself and your family. I am sure when the flower will start to bloom it will give you more happiness than that upto 50% sale which is going on your nearest lifestyle store and when you reach there you see the offer is on selected items. You can see the following image where a balcony has been converted to a little garden Just remember Creating a simple and elegant balcony or rooftop garden isn’t hard to do if you have a little patience.

Similarly I had experienced the bonding between one with his family, friends and neighbour is really a great asset. Those from villages/small towns can very much relate to the fact how connected they were in their childhood, how our parents talked and shared a repertoire with everyone be our neighbour, our grocerer, the milkman, the fish vendor, each and everyone. In my initial PG days in a big city I missed it very much. But I have experienced its changing now the housing societies, CHS or RWS in whatever name you called it started to created that atmosphere. The celebration of festivals of various religions, Independence & Republic day along with annual day. sports meet, rangoli are creating that much required interaction. We have just to participte in our Housing society's various function. You will  discover the happiness after knowing each other. When I started attending our function I was surprised after seeing the talents of the kids in singing & dancing, Some play unbelievably well in badminton and volleyball.

My take on life is to enjoy small things around you by doing small small things, Which will give you a lot of smile.

Dont keep yourself stuck in just one page explore the whole book like Vijayan.

When I first read the story of Mr. VIJAYAN and his wife at my first reaction was "Really ?"

How many of us are pursuing our dream with that passion ? We always give excuses to not pursue that dream. For understanding this please read about Mr. Vijayan at

This tea stall owner from Kerala has probably seen more countries than most of us have. Vijayan and his wife have made it their life's mission to visit as many countries as possible in one life. Considering that their small tea stall is their sole source of income, they take heavy loans from banks to fulfill their passion and put in twice the hours of work to gradually pay it all back. Without caring much for luxury, they chase the experience of travelling the world in whatever form. They've even sold tea in Zurich when they didn't have enough money fly back to India. Vijayan and his wife are the ideal example of how driven and passionate a dream can keep you. Vijayan has visited countries like Britain, France, Austria, Egypt, UAE, United States of America and the list goes on

So how you find the story and #willofsteel of Vijayan !!! When I compared it with my life and my passion for dream I found Vijayan has a stronger heart which is perhaps made of steel. In life we always defer that much-needed break and put other things in priority like purchasing some gadget or some items for home, thinking that it will give us pleasure. But in the process we just forget to relax and unwind which is required to refresh, replenish our senses.

Vijayan and his wife’s story is an eye-opener for us who give 'no money' as an excuse for not travelling. He proves that if you have a dream than no matter how big or how small it is you can achieve it with your dedication and will of steel.

There are really some great stories with will of steel, please have a look at the amazing stories and vote for the person you like. But “I’m voting for Vijayan’s #WillOfSteel and blogging on BlogAdda to help him/her get felicitated and eventually enabled by JSW.

Hopefully after reading this inspiring stories You will plan that long delayed trip and pack your bags. As Saint Augustine has said "The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." So dont keep yourself stuck in just one page explore the whole book like Vijayan did and keep on exploring.

Indian Ads In Bikini/Vests !!! where the Bikini is not required and where it required.

So how many times you see a bikini clad women in an advertisement.  Do you notice the ad or the model ? does the message reach your ears or your eyes just get satisfied ?

JK Cement Bikini Ad
This is the funniest and most irrelevant ad I have or anyone have ever seen. Here the VO says " Vishwaas hai, ‘Isme kuch khaas hai," and the bikini clad sexy model emerges from the sea. with the end note JK Super cements. you guys can help me in making out some meaning of the ad.

The AXE Effect - Women - Billions
If the previous ad with one bikini clad women is not sufficient see this one. where you can see Bikini clad models in billions (not literally but figuratively --dont confuse with figure) Just because he sprayed more Axe !!! come on people when did any girl looked at you coz u sprayed that deodorant. By now we have all understood by spraying more of the product dont gonna get any girl.

Euro - Accepted by Women Worldwide

Lux Genx ad 

Dixcy Scott - Innerwear - Horse - TV Commercial

These 3 ads are Indian ad of male innerwears, so ho many of you bought that brand or how many girls ask their BF/Husbands to try the brands ?

Just see the next ad of Naughty Amul Macho TVC - see what women do to men!!! See how tables turn, another naughty commercial. Metrosexuals beware!!!! with the end ye toh bada toying hai

DIRECTV Hannah Davis Commercial 2015 Riding Horse

Currently one of the ads in this genre where a bikini clad Hannah Davis in her horse speaks he advantages of DirecTV  In this ad, Fashion model, Hannah Davis, is riding her horse down the beach while explaining that DirecTV is wireless so you can put TVs anywhere. And, she insists that you don't just take it from her, but directly from her horse's mouth, her talking horse's mouth. Oh, and her horse can sing too. Haha its better to crash it.

Urzaa Swimming Pool advertisement

This ad has a beautiful bikini model. here it is relevant as she is chilling in the swimming pool and how urzaa helps.

Brands Endorsed by Salman Khan Match-Mismatch

Brands Endorsed by Salman Khan Match-Mismatch

Salman Khan is the superstar of Bollywood. Salman Khan is an Indian film actor, producer, television presenter, and philanthropist.
Salman Khan as a brand is perceived who is strong, caring, youthful. So a lot of brands with these qualities have associated with Salman Khan, the biggest brand endorser.

Some of the Brands Endorsed by Salman Khan are as follows
Being Human,
Astral Pipes.
Revital from Ranbaxy
Suzuki Motorcycles,
Thums UP
Relaxo Hawaai
Rotomac Pens
Tiger Biscuits
Sangini Diamonds.
Dixcy Scott.
Active Wheel

Although as a brand ambassador he has been really influential but some ads I felt are really misfit like the Astral Pipe and Active wheel ad.
let us first see the Astral Pipe Ad.

In the ad Salman's character is of a plumber who's also the face of the brand." he urges the usefulness and durability of Astral Pipe brand, but the ad is so clumsy like the house itself, who is looking at who, the girl surprised look. The ad complete mismatch now come to Wheel detergent, here Salman is a auto driver.. first see the ad

Here Salman gets the gift from his wife and goes on his auto for work,  and his shirt gets dirty, come on man are we watching ads to see this and how your wife gonna clean it with wheel. I found these two ads too mismatch for Slaman other ads like Yatra, Being Human are good to watch.

Listening to Heart for Relaxing and Learning

After the hectic month of year-end march, Exhausted is just an understatement. Most of you who works in corporates must be feeling how it is. One has no time to properly eat, think, giving time to family forget an vacation. This month generally fills with Targets, achievements, KPAs SKU, Next year target so on so forth. Sometimes to achieve the goal set by our boss or sometimes by us we just stop listening to our Dil. How many times we just stopped to enjoy an icecream without thinking about the timing of the train to catch. How about exploring a different part of the city. How about roaming in the road just to look at various aspects of the place. 
So after the financial year ends, the new targets, the new year the new urge to achieve the new target takes us in. In the whole process we just forget to listening our heart. Same happened with me, when I planned for a vacation the boss always there to convince that I can take it later. Or on the pretext that someone else is on leave. Or the fear that I will not be able to meet the target. Or last resort You are doing exceedingly well, You could achieve a lot in your career. You can even plan them later on. You guys must have a list too.
One fine day I thought, let me listen to my heart, just plan it. Thankfully India now have a good number of e-commerce sites which help you to make it easier, Be it booking your tickets or booking the hotel. So on a fine Monday afternoon, in the office I booked the tickets for Goa and booked the hotel for 3N/4D, starting from Saturday. I just have 4 days for all the preparation. Boss after knowing that I am going on leave gave the work which a superhuman can do in the remaining days. In Goa without the sunglasses the shorts, and those cool dresses you will feel strange, but I didn't have the time to go and buy from store. That's where Snapdeal India's leading e-commerce portal comes to the rescue, with a variety of options and a price which is unmatched brings joy to our hearts. And with its timely delivery you are assured to follow your heart. In my case I got my ordered shipment in 2 days i.e. Wednesday. It was an wonderful 4 days in Goa and great way to relax with lot of joy and fun. The sunset at beaches is a view to cherish. After the short vacation it was a great feeling and I pat on back myself for listening to my Dil and follow it without thinking about what my boss preaches. And its high time to Listen to your dil and do what it says, for deals there is Snapdeal for us.
