Ok…! Now before you scroll down any further let me hit the nail straight on its head. The very reason that you’ve opened this article is that just a fortnight into the New Year and you are already apprehensive about whether you’re going to get caught in a rut and do the same old act of giving up on your fitness goals and then wait again for another 300 days to pass by. Else if you are someone who has been hitting the gym regularly you may find this helpful with respect to redefining your goals and progressively break your own limits.
Now for most you, who are desperate about getting fit, unfortunately, you might tend to fail in your attempt towards getting fit and being healthier for no fault of yours, by falling into a vicious cycle where you have failed expectations leading to loss of hope thereby clinging back onto your old habits and then social pressure might push you to your limits where in you reluctantly force yourself to get started again and then the same cycle repeats again and again until the next new year.
Mysore is a dynamic city – full of culture and history. The route from Bangalore to Mysore is one of the busiest in the region and full of its own attractions too. From Ramanagara, which is now an adventure hub, to the gushing Shivasamudram falls in Mandya, the 150-km route along NH275 is full of scenic surprises. Customers are saving on the Bangalore to Mysore cab fare by choosing car rentals for a more wholesome trip experience. Even for business travelers, a rented car gives them more control over their schedule.
As a business hub, Mysore is an important centre of industry, tech and trade. Its offices and industrial sectors are spread across the city. When travelling for work from Bangalore to Mysore, an end-to-end solution is always preferred. A rented car is ideal for a business trip, a transport option available at all times for those meeting shuttles and site visits, along with the transit between the two cities.
It is rainy season, there is no winter in Chennai but, the mosquito season has started in all its glory. Tamilnadu has been the target of mosquito related diseases for long, and this time, we are hearing more about Dengue and loss of life owing to it. Awareness, authentic information and action at the right time is the key to preventing Dengue. Diseases have become a part of our life and it is prudence and early detection that will help us in safeguarding ourselves.
Dengue is a mosquito-borne disease caused by four different virus types, DENV 1-4, and spread by the Aedes mosquito. Aedes mosquito is active in day time and breeds in fresh water. Many of us have the misunderstanding that mosquitoes bite only in the night and it is one of the main reason for not taking the necessary precautions during the day time. If you notice the deaths reported, most of them are children. Children tend to stay out and play in open areas during day time and hence are more susceptible to getting bitten by Aedes mosquitoes. That does not mean Aedes mosquitoes do not bite us indoors. The important fact here is one mosquito bite of Aedes is enough to cause Dengue.
Weddings mark a significant milestone in our life. Be it our own marriage or wedding of our sibling or son or daughter, a wedding has never been associated only with the bride and groom, in Indian parlance, it is a marriage of families. The need to make it special is predominant in the families and they look at it as an opportunity to meet, greet and celebrate the occasion with family members and friends. Changing lifestyle has brought in innovation and creativity and couples look towards making a difference by making the wedding unique in every aspect. Such weddings are not a common occurrence and parents look for guidance to get started.
Basics of any dream wedding can be broadly classified to address outfits, jewelry, makeup and hair, venue, décor, photography, accessories, cakes, mehendi designs, return gifts, wedding packing, unique ideas and invitations. There’s so much thought process that goes into each category and for the ones who is getting to celebrate a grand wedding the very first time, it can be so daunting. This is when online platform such as WedMeGood come to our help. It is an eye-opener going through the site and we are thankful for providing a platform to plan and execute such a grand event in an organized manner.
Celebrations have found a new meaning in our lives. Social life is at its active best and connecting and communicating with friends and relatives has become easy. It is a sea change in the behavioral patterns from yesteryears when connectivity was an issue. Looking at things today, it makes us feel that life was much more serious and less fun those days. Today children are much more youthful and more magnanimous in celebrating life. It is never too late to get into the bandwagon. It is mostly a surprise visit to the friend’s home or at a common place or a restaurant to celebrate birthdays or weddings or anniversaries. Whatever be the plan of celebration, our basic item is a huge cake we so carefully select based on the occasion. Cake shops today has reinvented themselves and we now have a great variety of Birthday cakes, wedding cakes and even photo cakes in Chennai.

One of the trips we endeavor to take and prominent in our bucket list is Zurich. We do not belong to the category with a long itinerary moving from one place to another packaging a tight schedule. We are the casual travelers interested in exploring the local environment and little known places from a traveler perspective. So it is Zurich having read, heard about it a lot from friends, magazines and websites. One of the key influence for this interest is Yatra website we connect often for our travel needs. They have such wonderful packages for Swiss and for a mountain lover with keen interest in enjoying nature at its best; it is not surprising Zurich made it to the top of the list. We have the itinerary made and should make it sometime very soon.
It’s Friday again. We are back with final episode of Director Naga’s Shanmatam series. It is going to be the continuation of the previous episodes where he talked about the abstract mind relating to various forms of Gods. Last week he has covered Vishnu, Shiva and Sakthi. If you have missed out on this episode, you can check it in MyTra – Director Naga Delves Deeper in Shanmatam
Human understanding always is based on the faith we have on the subject. In the shanmatam series, we have been seeing the origin of Hinduism which turned out to be more geographical than religion. We have also seen the different deities and their possible origins from the human perspective. Interestingly, we could even see the deities attached to regions of India. Possibly the relation of the deity to the regions will be another research subject that we have on hand.
