Do you know the benefits of Palm Oil?

2019 is here and we all are committed to a healthier lifestyle and a better world. Aren't we? So why not switch to things that sustain both the economy and the environment more?
One of my resolutions this year is to opt for natural things. Something which is non biodegradable won't make the cut in my lifestyle. Secondly, we all should stand up for small scale industries. We should do everything and anything that supports the farmers of developing nations. In that way (even if slowly and gradually) we can expect a (sort of) equilibrium in this world. 2019 started pretty promising. The first event that I attended seemed to resonate with my New Year Resolutions. I was invited to be a part of the Palm Oil Gourmet Delights Event, organized by Malayasian Palm Oil Council. It promised to be an informative as well as an entertaining afternoon, and the event turned out way more fun filled than that! Dr Bhavna Shah, country representative of MPOC India/Srilanka opened our eyes about the be…

Home Sweet home to Smart and safe home

A boy was born free, but as soon as he started growing up, he became shackled in chains. Does this resonate with anyone? I mean we guys try to postpone 'adulting' as long as we can just because of this....'responsibility'. We may flirt and refrain from commitment as long as we can but as soon as we take the plunge of marriage or start a family ( even more serious task) we are forced to change over a new leaf and embrace our guardianship role to the fullest.



I was the youngest in my family till I decided to get married. First I was bestowed with taking care of my much younger wife and then after 3 years, I actually realized the pain of parenting...the constant worrying about the safety of my loved ones. We had to hire a nanny for some time as we both were working before my wife decided to quit working full time and stay at home. That was a brief, yet one of our toughest phases of parenting. We were new parents, my in-laws were out of town (the usual care takers of our da…

Book Review: The code of Manava Maha Vishnu Trilogy Part 1 by Arpit Bakshi

Image
Title: The code of Manava Maha Vishnu Trilogy Part 1 Author: Arpit Bakshi
Pages: 285
Rupa Publications
Price: ₹295
Genre: Science Fiction
When you write a book, it usually resonates with your personality to a very large extent. Sometimes it is highly influenced by your profession/ upbringing or your innate nature in general. And sometimes your alter ego guides your pen. In either way, a book is an author's baby and it a reflection of what all is going on the author's mind.

I am a kind of reader who starts right from the first page of a book till the last. I read all the publication information, about the author, prologue etc etc. However, this book looked too fascinating and different from the cover, so I decided to devour the story right away. However after reading 3 or 4 pages, I was forced to read about the author. He just couldn't be from a literary background. There had to be a scientific educational background as the facts were too vivid and technical ( with isotopes in par…

TRAI doing the right thing

Image
I am a big television fan. Although I hardly get the time to indulge in this passion of mine. However my area of television is very restricted. It's mainly cricket (not even all the sports) and Bollywood and Tollywood. So I find it very annoying that I have to pay for the whole packages. The TV Broadcasters have been overcharging us by giving us packages with channels we don't even watch. We now really need to #StopTheLoot 
In the recent months, TRAI are facing an ongoing battle with the Broadcasters, especially with the people of Star group. Now, the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal of broadcasters and cemented Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) tariff order for pricing and packaging of TV channels.As per the new tariff order, broadcasters were required to declare the MRP and nature of all the channels. 
So basically, they would have to put it up on their websites and social media that they are following the order by TRAI and submit a list of paid channels and gro…
