Knock Knock Mr Sun!!!


Thank you so much for so many messages.I miss you too guys , thanks for showering so much love through messages. I was busy with other commitments so I could not do any posts here but I was regular on my instagram so in case you are not following me there, do connect.

Heat is on !!! 


Mangoes,watermelon and fresh juices and endless juicy cold options to enjoy this summer.

We need to take care of our loved ones and the birds,animals and people working outside in the sun so whenever someone rings your house bell offer them something to drink, make sure its at room temperature or mild cold like lemon water or fruit juice etc so that they are hydrated.

Keep a bowl of clean water for birds and also for stray dogs and cats.We all deserve this much humanity.Whenever you come back from the heat outside or even when outside drink lemon water at frequent intervals.Wear a cap and carry an umbrella.I remember my Nana and Nani always covered their head with a cap or pallu and carried an umbrella.It makes sense.Its a must. Protect yourself as a top priority.

Heat stroke is a silent killer.Last year my best friend fainted in her office due to heat stroke.When we are indoors in air conditioned rooms we think we are safe from heat and neglect the water intake so dear friends do take good care this summer.

Its the time to enjoy the thunda thunda cool cool fresh fruits, fresh lime water or whatever you like , just enjoy.Remember enjoy Life to the fullest and live in the present moment.

How to know what are the symptoms and what can we do in case of Heat Stroke, Heat Exhaustion,Heat Cramps,Sunburn and Heat Rash........Well I am listing down all the symptoms and precautions which we can make note of in our mind, so share with your friends too.....

 Heat Stroke

-High Body temperature

-Hot,red and dry skin




-Passing Out 

Bring the person to cooler place.Try to lower the temperature with a cool cloth.Under these conditions immediately consult a doctor,Its a medical emergency.DO NOT GIVE ANYTHING TO DRINK to a unconscious person.

Heat Exhaustion

-Heavy sweating

-Cold,pale skin

-Fast,weak pulse


-Muscle Cramp



-Passing out

Then move the person to a cool place,loosen their clothes.Make them take a little sip of water,lemon water etc and immediately consult a doctor.

 Heat Cramps

-Heavy sweating and muscle pain

Move to a cool place and stop all physical activity.Drink water and relax.Get medical help.

Sun Burn

-Painful red skin

-Blisters on skin

Don't go out in the sun till it heals.Put a cool cloth on the red area.Keep the skin moisturized.Always apply the sun screen lotion before going out in summers.

Heat Rash

-Red clusters like pimples on skin

Stay in cool place keep the rash dry and apply any powder.

Rising temperature,depleting natural resources is alarming. We need everyday - Earth Day – a day that reminds us of our responsibility for our planet and how important it is to protect it.

Before I wrap up today do enjoy this video where a parrot visited my friends house early morning and knocked on their window.My friend made a tent cover with a cloth and clips to protect him from the heat and fed it with grapes and water which he accepted happily and flew away in the evening......

Ganesha Visarjan on Friday, September 9, 2022

I pray that whosoever is reading this Ganesha bestows you with happiness, wisdom, good health and prosperity! May Lord Ganesha always remove obstacles from your life.

I always get excited for this festival as my two most favourite festivals Janamashtmi and Ganesh Chaturthi falls just before my birthday and it makes me feel very special.Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi is celebrating the annual arrival of the God Ganesha (Ganesh) to earth from his celestial abode.The festival ends on the tenth day after start, when the idol is carried in a public procession with music and group chanting, then immersed in a nearby body of water such as a river or sea, called visarjan.Now eco friendly idols are made which are not harmful to the environment.The festival celebrates Ganesha as the God of New Beginnings and the Remover of Obstacles as well as the god of wisdom and intelligence.Ganesh Chaturthi marks the birth of Lord Ganesha who removes obstacles and is the giver of wealth and wisdom, many people believe it to be a mark of new beginnings and opportunities.It is widely believed that Ganesh Chaturthi was celebrated for the first time when the Satavahana, Rashtrakuta, and the Chalukya dynasties ruled between 271 B.C. and 1190 A.D.

Aao Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye.....


The biggest festival of Hindus Diwali, which we excitedly wait for the whole year to come.All houses decorated with lights, rangoli and toran gives it a special touch. And not to forget different mithai/sweets and food. I specially love home made besan ladoos, kupdi, mathi, Gujiya's made by my mom and also the Ghari, which many of us dont know in North India as its a speciality from Gujurat specially made in this season only.




Besan Ladoos

Kesar Badam Pista Ghari made from milk, sugar, elaichi, kesar, almonds, pistachios, nuts, gram flour, wheat flour, ghee

The entrance of the house is decorated with toran (hanging of Ashoka or Mango leaves).It is considered extremely auspicious as it is believed that it keeps the evil spirits and negative energy at a bay. It is also believed that tying the leaves can make the house owner's desires come true.Green color of the leaves is so soothing and refreshing to the mind which helps to lower anxiety.Air is purified when it is filtered through the leaves.Green leaves absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. This helps in keeping the surrounding atmosphere clean and hygienic. 

Toran made from Ashoka Leaves

Ashoka is a Sanskrit word which means “without sorrow”or Tree of Happiness. The tree is acclaimed as woman-friendly as it can drive away all the pain and sorrow of the woman through its capability of gifting good health.

The Ashoka tree is worshipped in the Chaitra month, the first month of the Hindu calendar by Hindus. In Ramayana, Sita Mata was brought to Ashoka Vatika, Lanka by Ravana. Lord Hanuman first met Sita Mata in Ashoka Vatika, the garden of Ashoka trees.

Astrology has great significance of Ashoka tree:

 - The tree takes away the pain and sorrow of the individual and brings name, fame, and prosperity in    his/her life.   

- Ashoka tree is used to solve the money problem, marriage problem and minimize Mangal dosha and to perform spiritual practices.

 - Remedial Solutions for the individuals who are facing money problem is to grow Ashoka tree in the garden of the house and pour water daily. 

- Bring the roots of the tree on Sunday and do Abhishek of Gangajal on the roots. After that, the roots should be kept in a safe place. By doing so the way of success gets open for individuals.

- Another powerful tip from Expert Astrologers to solve marriage problems is to bring 7 leaves of the Ashoka tree and keep it in the temple of the house and sprinkle sandal water on it. The leaves have to be kept under the Peepal tree on the next day. After this, you need to bring another seven leaves. This process has to be continued for 40 days. By doing this you would probably see the change in your married  life or the problem of delay in marriage can be resolved.

- Offering the bark of the Ashoka tree to Lord Hanuman every Tuesday would likely minimize Mangal Dosha present in the Janampatri of an individual.

 - You are likely to see success in life if you chant mantra sitting in the east direction under the Ashoka tree.

 - If you light a ghee lamp under this tree, it is likely to attract good health and wealth in your life.
You would have a positive atmosphere in the house by hanging the Toran of the Ashoka leaves on the main door. This is why the Toran of Ashoka leaves is hung on the main door of the house before performing puja or during the auspicious ceremony.

Sunday, 19 September 2021


Anant Chaturdashi popularly known as Anant Chaudas. The sacred day is dedicated to Lord Vishnu who is called as the Lord of several avatars and the preserver of the universe.
19th September 2021 Lord Ganesha bids adieu to Earth, and Lord Ganesha devotees perform visarjan puja with a promise that Ganpati Bappa will return next year.

Anant Chaturdashi is the most significant day to worship Lord Vishnu in Anant form.Ananta in Sanskrit means eternal or endless.
On this day, devotees observe a day-long fast and tie a sacred thread 'Anant Sutra' to seek blessings for a prosperous and peaceful life.  

(My mom made these kupdi's today, now I have learnt this too and they look perfect in shape as well as in taste)

This day and puja was most dear to my grandmother nani "Nirmala" like her name which means Immaculate, Clean virtuous,Pure she performed this puja with full faith.I still remember she kept fast and made kupdi's which looked and tasted so yum.She never missed even a single fast or puja for this day.What may come. She surprised everyone with her grace and education.Born in 1925 she was well educated and spoke english with class, which was not common among other females as women were not allowed to get education at that time.Elegant lady with virtue.She will always be alive in my memories and life.
