About the photo –
Clicked by CANON Rebel T6i (and edited by Snapseed App), while on my daily walk at the Riverfront Walking Trail, Memphis – this photo clearly depicts “SILENCE” and the need for it!
In today’s world when everything around us is so deafening and ear-splitting, SILENCE is the need of the hour. Flashy friendships, blatant relationships and clamorous associations, they all are manifestation of unnecessary chatter! With fabricated liaisons and blaring lies being omnipresent, calmness is a necessary occurrence which comes to us at a high price! Towering buildings, maddening gridlock and oh! so harried lives – has had us all so tangled, that, calmness feels awkward!
I wish for muteness! I wish for calmness! I wish for a piece of “SILENCE” to call my own!
Keeping up with the trend of being cognizant of the food products that we in-take and continuing to strive for a healthier lifestyle, here comes my effort of familiarizing you all (and me too) with the latest food trends and well-being fads! Oh yes, looking good and eating healthy never goes out of STYLE!

Clicked by Nexus 6P phone (and edited by Snapseed App), on my trip to a small town called Bhangarh(in India), this photo speaks a thousand words about being “WEATHERED!”
Famous for its historical ruins, and considered to be one of India’s many haunted locations – Bhangarh (established in 1573) is an embodiment of age-long history and yesteryear. Once a town alive with people like you and me, it is now a land of relics, reminding us of an era of princely states and regal existence. From grand courtyards, abundant riches and effusive lifestyle to a wreckage that’s long forgotten, this town sermonizes the imprint of “time and tide!”
From witnessing the past to now becoming a “historical site” – Bhangarh with its legends of the antiquity, has for sure weathered!
Post some Real Talk and Personal Stories – it is time for me to talk about “Healthy Living!” (Yes, you heard me!) Keeping in mind the extra pounds gained over the festive season and carrying on with my pathway to healthful life – this feels like an appropriate thing to do. (Damn! These new year RESOLUTIONS!) Hence, the idea of – Healthy Food Series – where I will share, address and talk about some healthy food options available in the market (hopefully on a weekly basis.) From talking about their health benefits to discussing the background of a particular food product and a bonus sumptuous recipe, this series aims at making you (and me) more aware and watchful of the foodstuff that we consume.
“Just like keeping a healthy diet is important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating the right foods is just as important for getting the most out of your workout.”

Our star of the day for Healthy Food Series is – QUINOA!

About the photo –
Clicked by Nexus 6P phone (and edited by Snapseed App), on my trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee at the Ruby Falls – this photo, for me, highlights the process of “GROWTH.”
Depicted here in the photo is – a Stalactite(which is – an icicle-shaped formation that hangs from the ceiling of a cave, and is produced by precipitation of minerals from water dripping through the cave ceiling) and a Stalagmite(which is – an upward-growing mound of mineral deposits that have precipitated from water dripping onto the floor of a cave) – growing, drop by drop, over a million of years to form a Column, overcoming any challenges and distress thrown at them.
Resilient, irrepressible and effervescent – these so-called “rock formations” in the middle of no-where, braving through hardships and experiencing testing times, are a perfect reminder to us – to never Give Up Growing!
When you don’t wait for a perfect environment, but en-cash on the worst that the life throws at you – Growth is inevitable!
