Avoiding boredom in public transports 

All of us love travelling but not always the travels are quick and smooth. Often we end up spending a few to many hours in the flight or airports or trains and buses and we have to do something to keep ourself occupied. There are some people who would love to watch some movie on the laptop or some may prefer to take a short nap during such intervals. But these are options which could help us in case of a few hours. Practically it is not feasible to glare at the laptop for hoursvor sleep comfortably at a public place. Many people tend to meddle with their phones but the net reuslt is battery drains in a few hours.   Yet we all need something to keep us busy. 

The need of the hour is to socialize with our fellow companions, meet new people and become friends,share thoughts and time flies. We never know they may become very good friends in the future. This is the best way to interact with others and get their views on a particular thing. This way we get to learn about their culture and lifestyle.

Another interesting way is to look out for the beautiful view while travelling in a bus or in a train. We get to see many small villages passing by. The people living in such places have their own farms which are huge in area. They grow various crops and do farming for their survival. Such a view is rare to observe in the developed towns and cities. While travelling to some hillstation the best way to keep ourselves busy is to have a look at the beautiful scenery and the ups and downs of the routes. It is truely amazing. 

One of the other ways to pass time in buses, trains or flights is to carry some magazines. Magazines are available at any airport or stations. They are a good source to pass time. It has a variety of sections lettibg us choose from our interest be it fashion or travel or technology or food and many others. Depending upon our interest and the duration of time wr need to spend we can choose a required book. There are some magazines which have an overview of all fields and ia the best suited in case of smaller journey wjereas in case of a long journey we can opt for other magazines which have content in depth in various fields. There are many varieties of magazines one can opt for. 

Also after completing a magazine we can pass it on to our fellow companions travelling besides us. Our travel becomes brightened when some stranger beside us offers a magazine. 

Hillstations 


As a resident of delhi i have always fancied travelling to hillstations during the summer months. 

They provide an exotic environment to the visitors and a soothing climate . There is a lot to explore in such places and each place has its own beauty and uniqueness. The culture and lifestyle of the local people is way too simple from ours. We get to explore the diversity of their lifestyle like their way of dressing brings a totally new attire, their language amd food shows the diversity in India. On visiting such places we realise that there are places which are comparatively less populated than any of the metros and yet it is one of the most happening destinations. Offering a much cleaner atmosphere with lush greenery and cleaner oxygen to breathe, the people there are far more disciplined than us by all means. Another interesting feature of hillstations is their routes. With much of ups and downs on the way it offers a beautiful scenic view . At the highest point of the peak one can see the clear sky which appears more nearer. 

Hillstations offer a pleasant climate throughout the year. Visiting in the summers bring relief whereas visiting in winters brings its share of joy and excitement of snowfall. These features make hillstations a loved place round the year and attract a lot of tourists. In hillstations walking for many kilometers does not make us tired and the reason being the air is fresh and free from pollution. Hence it offers a clean and heathy environment to the people. 

Hillstations are loved by everyone.  

Lucky are those born in the 90s 

The golden period, The 90s. 

It is this generation of people who have enjoyed life to the fullest in the best possible ways. That time there was no much technology and probably that is the reason those people lead a much better and healthy life. These days children as young as a few months old have knowledge on operating a mobile or a laptop or any other gadget for that matter. Earlier generations had access to these smart technologies in middle age of their life starting from the very basic model of mobiles which solved only the purpose of making and receiving calls. Since there was no gaming in mobiles so children got the opportunity to go and play outdoors which kept them fit and healthy. Nowadays children are equipped with a lot of technology that they are totally indulged in it and often end up being introverts. No much social interactions with others makes them sophisticated. They tend to take things more casually and often don’t realize the seriousness of things in life. This way they end up growing as a very pampered child which in some way spoils them. The happiness achieved on sharing our thoughts with someone or sending quality time with our family is the best satisfaction one can get. The happiness and peace of mind one gets on helping a needy person is not comparable to anything else. Those who are born with technology do not understand these small things in life which in turn grow up to be major problems for them. They are often of the mindset that being modern with money can fulfill all their dreams and can buy them everything in life. But the fact remains that money can only buy them gadgets amd not happiness or peace or true satisfaction. 

The 90s generation have spent a worthy childhood being realistic and have enjoyed small small things in life to the fullest! 

My first day at school

Just like every other child even I was very excited to go to school the first day but I did not anticipate that going to school was no longer a cake walk when it came to doing.
A totally new environment,
The moment I arrived at school I learnt that I had to be in school alone without my parents for half a day and I was not prepared for the same. I saw many other students in the school who were also in the same condition as me. Most of them were crying to part from their mother’s. I too did the same. Then I was assured by my mother that she would be right there at the reception waiting for me until the school gets over. Still I was hesitant to go and I began crying even more. After a lot of consoling I agreed to go inside with a crying face. On entering the class I saw a whole lot of new people who later on became my friends and there was a teacher who managed to bring a smile on our faces. For one teacher to handle so many kids was not an easy task as all the children had their own tantrums. Initially I was reluctant to talk and socialise with all the other children in class but the teacher introduced us to all the others in class. The most common expression observed was either a crying face or a smile on seeing each others face. As the day passed by, I started to talk to a few of the students as I realized that it was with these children that I had to spend the rest of the day. I was happy to have made new friends and soon it was afternoon when the bell rang and classes were dismissed. Every child ran out to reach their parents who were waiting for their children in huge numbers outside the gate. And on meeting my mother I had a whole lot of stories to tell her which she use to listen very patiently with much interest. She always motivated me and guided me towards being a good and successful person. Though I did not realize the importance of those thing when it was said to me but I agreed to her hoping that she knew much more than me and would think the best for me. Today I realise the importance of those things ! This is how my first day at school was. It was a day that can never be forgotten by me and my family members.

Winters of Delhi

Late November or early December marks the arrival of winters in Delhi.Initially it is loved by all of us after a break from the scorching heat of the summers. By January the temperature decreases further rapidly leaving us shivering and we end up cursing the cold weather. Everything seems to be moving slow. Getting up early in the morning is one of the biggest challenges faced on a daily basis. An extra five minutes of sleep seems like five hours of sleep. Those few minutes become very precious to us forcing us to stay cozy within our blanket.

Once getting up is accomplished the next hoop is to have a bath in the cold mornings.Often having a bath seems easy but the catch lies in the latter part of bathing. The time slot lying after having taken a bath and coming out of the bathroom is what makes us reluctant. Constant shivering along with biting of teeth due to cold winds reaching us is the actual cause of getting us delayed.

Once this is done the day becomes much easier for us. we are left to face small challenges which are easier to achieve. Often when we move out we tend to blow air to the windows of cars or buses during foggy mornings to see the condensation. this is more common at younger ages as the science behind it fascinates kids.

Walking in winters seems better than taking a two or three wheeler. This is because in two or three wheeler more of cold chilly wind hits us making it uncomfortable for us.During afternoons all of us look out for the sun which plays hide and seek with us. This way a lot of people sit together, they get an opportunity to mingle with other around and facilitates healthy communication between neighbours. In hope of getting the warmth of sunshine, people sit out facing the sun knitting sweaters as this is one of the most familiar hobbies of women. Evenings are windy so we often don’t feel like doing much of work and become restless. A cup of hot soup is often served to while away the chillness and make ourselves warm from within during the evenings. This is one of the most common schedules of a Delhiite to manage the winters. Days are short and nights are long in winters. End of February or beginning of march ends the winter season. So these four months should be enjoyed to the fullest!

My Mother – My Ladder

Mother is A lady who not just gives birth,
But swears to take care forever.
Of all the ages
She has been her child’s courage.
Throws her life on anvil,
But is never evil.
Has to do a lot of forfeits,
Just to give her babies, treats.
Epitome of the best God’s creation,
She fulfills almost all her child’s imaginations.
Raises her child by teaching tits bits like sharing,
That is why she is called as loving and caring.
She faces examination of flames ,
To make her angel’s name a fame.
Thank you dear mom…
For standing by me through thick and thin,
For not giving up on me when I didn’t win,
For your patience when I kept pushing you away,
For caring when I said I didn’t need you anyway.
You will always be my superstar!

A wonderful trip to Manali

Manali, a hill station in the mountains of the state of Himachal Pradesh is surrounded by nature which is very scenic and the climate is cold during winters, and moderate during summer.

A trip to manali was a fantastic one. I experienced a whole lot of new things. It was for the first time that I happened to visit a hilly area which made my trip more adventurous and memorable.

We started with the religious places.


Vashisht temple-This temple is dedicated to the great sage Vashisht in the village of Vashisht located at 3 km from Manali.


Buddha temple-The Buddhist temple  is a very peaceful and beautiful place, full of colorful flowers grown in the surroundings and fully painted with auspicious symbols. One gets the feeling of spirituality.


Hadimba temple-this is an ancient  devi temple along with a small Ganesh idol, located in the midst of all trees.

After all these temples we moved to mall road for shopping. 


There we found a whole lot of imported items, beautifully woven shawls, cardigans, a new collection of different sling bags and footwear and a lot more.

The next day we visited snow point. 


Since we went in the month of June, Rohtang pass was closed, we went upto the highest point, that is the snow point. We enjoyed playing with the snow. Walking on the snow covered mountains was no less than a kind of trekking. Hands got frozen inspite wearing gloves. The most common fast food there was maggi and omlet. We left early at 4 in the morning to avoid traffic as it was a peak season. As soon as we stepped out if the car a cool chilled breeze hit us so powerfully that we could barely open our eyes. It took us a couple of minutes to get adjusted to those winds. We became somewhat comfortable only after putting on gloves and a scarf. Then it was fun playing in snow. Soon the sun came out drom one side making it bearable for us.The best part was the amount of snow present there despite of the scorching Sun’s heat.


After the snow point we visited the club house in the evening. A beautiful place with activities like boating on the paddle poats, walking on ropes, rock climbing and many others. There was a stream of water which was as cold as ice and hence the breeze was cool and provided a calm and peaceful environment. It was a place rich with flora.


The next day we went to kullu and had an amazing experience of rafting. The water was quite deep and cold so it bought more fun rafting at beas river. 


Following that we visited the shawl factory at kullu which offered a huge variety of colorful shawls of different styles. The quality of shawls was too good to stand the cold. It also offered many other woolen clothes which were quite different from the usual ones available at other cities.

This way i had an absolutely amazing and unforgettable journey travelling to manali! And i would indeed look forward to visiting it again!
