Babies are the eternal bliss. Their giggles are like a therapy. If you are feeling stressed just look at a laughing child, it will recharge you with child like energy. When children are small, they are so cute. It is so fun to play with them. It is so gratifying to watch as they grow and learn. They can privilege us with endless hours of enjoyment if we want to take the time. They are one of the best gift of god one can get. It is even mentioned in our holy books. Here I mention few verses from Holy Bible.

Psalm 113:9
He makes the barren woman abide in the house As a joyful mother of children. Praise the LORD!

Psalm 127:3
Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.

Genesis 48:9
Joseph said to his father, “They are my sons, whom God has given me here ” So he said, “Bring them to me, please, that I may bless them.”

Proverbs 17:6
Grandchildren are the crown of old men, And the glory of sons is their fathers.

Babies are very fragile and need very protectiveness. Being a parent it is my responsibility to give my child the best care. He has very soft skin that i enjoy hugging and cuddling him. I do a lot of efforts to keep my son’s soft skin warm and safe. Here i want to share few of them.

Sun Protection : It is advisable to expose children to early morning sun. But after that I try to cover him with a hat and full sleeve clothes to protect his tender skin from sun’s harmful UV Rays. I avoid to get my child in sun between hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. That’s when the sun is the strongest and can do the most harm.

Babies Laundry : I always wash my child’s clothes separately with mild detergent which is free from any perfumes so that my child does not get any rashes on his skin. I wash even new clothes, because it might carry bacteria or dust with it which can cause skin irritation.

Moisturize : I moisturize my babies skin after every bathe, but during winters I moisturize his skin with olive oil and a good quality baby moisturizer more frequently to prevent his skin from dryness.

Right Water Temperature : Baby’s fragile skin can not tolerate too hot or too cold water temperature. I always keep water warm not hot while giving him bathe. Too hot or too cold water can damage baby’s skin severely.

Diaper check : I used to keep checking my baby’s diaper. Wetness can cause diaper rash so it is important to choose a diaper that keep baby’s skin dry. After using Pampers pants i got rid of this tension.
Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy.

Real togetherness with kith and kin are something where we can share our deep secrets. Where we can ask for any kind of help or favor without thinking twice. Where opinions matter for each other. Where love and compassion increase with every single bite on dinner table. Where festivals and special occasions become more special because of family and friend’s presence. Where we forget about materialistic world but the presence of our loved ones mean a lot. Togetherness of my loved ones is the most important thing in my life. My life is meaningless if i do not spend real time with my family and friends.

People are more busy with their gadgets than family members these days. Social networking sites keep us updated the virtual friend’s life events but we remain oblivion to people who are the closer to us. Somewhere we are addicted to virtual life and virtual socialization, the value of real life and friends has been declining .The feeling of real togetherness is missing somewhere. Nothing can beat the conversation among friends, family and loved ones over a cup of coffee, just watching a cricket match on television cheering for our team India or singing song together while playing antakshari. Hence the gist is togetherness of people we love gives us strength, motivation and optimism and in turn takes away sorrows, tensions and loneliness from us.

I got the idea of developing real togetherness when i saw the new bottle of Kissan tomato ketch up which had a customized cap bearing good quality tomato seeds. With these seeds i got into an idea of developing a kitchen garden in the backyard of my house. with the help of my neighboring kids i cleaned the earthy space with unwanted vegetation and ploughed the mud to sow the tomato seeds provided with the Kissan tomato sauce. When these seeds germinated into plants my husband also got infected with developing this garden. He went to the nursery and brought further more plants of fruits and flowers. This garden is now our little heaven where we spend time in the mornings and evenings. I showed my garden to my neighing friends who loved the ideas as much as i did. It gave us the realization of connecting with the nature. The vegetables of my kitchen are so special as they are nurtured with immense love and care. Caring of pants together let us to spend more time with each other.

Kissan India has made a very good effort by emphasizing through Kissanpur about the importance of joy of real togetherness. The video clip beautifully defines this idea. Watch the video to get motivated to experience and share the joy of real togetherness connecting with the nature.

Superb music and dance videos can make anyone feel high. I do not know anything about dance not even A B C D. But i use to dance when i feel excited and happy. I always dance alone in my room or in group cause i am a very bad dancer. When Blogadda gave me a tough task of making a dance video i was in dilemma. I am shy in dancing in public but my 1+ year old son Ayaan love to dance on peppy and high pitch songs. When i downloaded Max Fresh Move song my son instantly started dancing. Here i am sharing my son’s dancing video.

I and my son enjoyed a lot while making video. He was dancing in front of the camera and i was behind. The colgate max fresh move song is peppy and very refreshing. The beats of this song make you tapping your feet. Allu Arjun looked very smashing in the max fresh video. Now my son has become a fan of Allu Arjun’s dance moves. In the fact when i was surfing channels on television he recognized Allu Arjun in the movie Arya and signaled me to continue the channel as he has not learnt speaking. He may be the youngest fan of Allu Arjun.

I am dancing for #MaxFreshMove activity at BlogAdda. If you are not blogging, you can join me by participating in this #MaxFreshMove facebook activity.

Airtel 4G

Our planet Earth has become a web world. People are connected to each other through social networking site, chatting portals, e-mails, video calling etc. We can get anything we want on internet be it online shopping, online movie ticket booking, holiday plans, journey tickets, cab bookings and what not. But what will one do if network does not support desired speed and keep on hanging. I just curse those service providers who eat my money like monsters but don’t give their promised services.

When i heard about Airtel giving 4G speed that too at the cost of 3G. At first, i could not believe because sometimes i do not even get 2G at the cost of 3G. But then i thought of giving it a try. As i am an addicted user of internet, I do a lot of online shopping, movie downloads, surfing. But, railway ticket booking sucks me on my previous mobile network. Video downloading was always an affair of rotating head. I managed to get an Airtel 4G sim for my smart phone. I was so amazed to see the lightening 4G speed on my cell. Now i feel that a smart phone with Airtel 4G becomes a smarter phone.

I got the speed i never imagined before. Now that i have the super fast mobile network i am going to spend more time on my favorite past time ‘browsing’. I will download beauty and cookery videos that will enhance my looks and culinary skills. I will download nursery rhymes and videos for my child. I am feeling so relieved that i would be able to book my railway tickets before they are gone as i have 4G speed now, no one can beat me in speed. I travel a lot so i always need confirmed railway tickets, i will surely get a confirmed railway ticket that too of my preferred seat on my next booking as i have the super fast network.

Presently my husband is abroad and i can’t live without seeing him at least once a day. Video calling is the key. Now my husband does’nt get irritated of video call interruptions. When we had a video call conversation there was no interruption. The conversation was as smooth as butter and there was no loss of video or voice. He asked me about this miracle. I told him about Airtel’s latest launch of 4G speed. H did not believe that India has a 4G network now.

I cant express enough how my life is relaxed with 4G. I do not need to think twice about getting an Airtel 4G sim for my husband once he returns home. He will be so happy and buy me an expensive return gift through online shopping website.

I am a big foodie and love to taste different cuisines.I like cuisine from north to south and east to west, Chinese to Italian, French to Afghan. Whenever i have a new dish at any restaurant or at a friend s place i try to make it at home in my style. Pasta is a dish i used to have when i and my husband were dating. He not only introduced me to pasta but several Italian dishes such as Zucchini Bread, Lasagne etc. After that Jamie Oliver became my favorite chef for Italian food. I watch his show on television. I had eaten several varieties of pasta but pasta cooked in white sauce with vegetables is my favorite. My 1+ year old son also love to hog on white sauce pasta. Here i am sharing my son s favorite pasta recipe. It has mild flavors of butter, cheese and veggies.
My recipe will serve four.

Music is passion for me. I live music to the core of my heart. My passion for music has drawn me into Radio Industry. Music always freshen up my mood and fill me with the high voltage energy. I am fond of music be it pop, jazz, retro, modern, classical or bollywood. All i want is the music which touches my soul. Here i am sharing my Favorite playlist which has surprising and healing effect on me and gives me Taazgi Ka Dhamaka.

Allu Arjun and Anushka Manchanda s following video gives me Taazgi ka Dhamaka. Allu’s dance and Anushka’s voice gear up any one in seconds. It tops the list.

Shahrukh Khan is favorite of every romantic girl but, his Chhaiyan Chhaiyan video from the movie ‘Dil Se’ is one such video i love to watch repeatedly, it boosts me. A. R. Rehman s music and best ever performance of Malaika Arora.

“Summer of ’69” is a song by Canadian singer and songwriter Bryan Adams, from his fourth studio album, Reckless (1984). It’s lyrics “I got my first real six-string. Bought it at the five-and-dime. Played it ’til my fingers bled. It was the summer of ’69.” sensationalizes me.

When it comes to dance, ‘Badtameez Dil’ song from the movie ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani” is my favorite. Ranbeer and Deepika s perfect chemistry and musical beat forces me to get up and dance.

A 1995 song ‘Urwashi Urwashi! take it wasy Urwashi’ rocks. It was the song I and my friends used to sing in college days. A R Rehman s music and Prabhu Deva s sance do woders together.

Amir Khan and Ayesha Zhulka starring ‘pehla nasha’ song is the most romantic song i have ever heard. This song had introduced me to the madness of love. It gives me intoxication and takes me to the another world.

Ranbeer Kapoor s another hit film “Rockstar” has “kun faya kun” song which connects me to the almighty god. I don’t what A R Rehmaan Does, i would call it wonder. This song make me feel up whenever i feel low.

“Chahe jo tumhe poore dil se, milta hai woh mushkil se. Aisa jo koi kahin hai, bas wahi sabse haseen hai.” This song from the trio of Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy is an anthem for me. Every single lyric of this song is so meaningful and teaches a lot.

Waheeda Rehmaan and Dev Anaand Sir are my favorite bollywood couple from olden golden era. I and My husband sing this song when we stay far in different cites. Very calm music relaxes my nerves.

Last but not the least on the sensational vocals of Suneeta Rao “Pari Hoon Main” is perfect song for this playlist. I feel like a fairy myself and dance on this song when alone.

I am blogging for #MaxFreshMove activity at BlogAdda in association with Colgate MaxFresh
