I don’t care how people describe me.. what matters to me is how I look at myself n what I think of myself.I don’t give anyone any right to judge me. And even if they do so it’s thr point of view... hardly effects me 😊

  • I Beleive I can Fly!
    The Pep Up Studio | 21-Aug-2019
    I believe I can fly! All my dreams would come true, If I had the wings, in the blue. Enthralling and engaging As the birds would do.. If you feel like this the new BUNGEE workout is what you should be doing, it will enthrall and engage you like a bird. No no it’s nothing like jumping off the cliff. Then what is it making it so popular among everyone? It has a unique system where you are attached to the ceiling with a harness around your pelvic region. The cord has resistance that keeps pulling you upward. In any normal cardio activity like running or jumping your knees and ankles are taking all the body weight and the impact. For some it isn’t an issue but for many with ankle or knee injury or with age and wear and tear of the joints any floor cardio becomes an uphill task, causing aversions and making one step on the weighing scale seeing numbers rise. Apart from water therapy you can hook up to this new adventure if you have or not have any joint issues as the average cardio burn out rec

  • The Silver Lining to Burnt Toast
    Asmita Javdekar | 20-Aug-2019
    I could barely take my eyes off him.6feet 2inches, chiseled to perfection!His complexion was reeking of warm chestnut, perhaps a well earned tan from the Himalayan trek that he was brazenly boasting about. Amma always told me that I was an innate revolutionary, my first shriek into this world was proof enough that I was here to ruffle quite a few feathers.At 12, I picked up my first fight against Avva (my grandmother) for not allowing me inside the kitchen when I was on my period. At 15, the target was Amma and Appa for setting a 7 pm deadline for me to get home when my younger brother could gallivant at his heart’s whim. This unfair, biased world for women made me sick in my gut. Ever since, I prioritised Women Rights and Welfare as a cause that I would dedicate my life to.Kabir was a chance encounter.I was working on a Skilling project for a community of Himachali women. A friend had recently trekked to our program site and wanted to update me about her experience. For the first time in my life, I co

  • Traveling with a baby
    Team Kalamwali | 20-Aug-2019
    Traveling with a baby - By Eesha Patwardhan   “Buy a ticket to nowhere, live your life and experience wanderlust.” Clearly these words were not spoken by a parent !!! As a parent and especially as a new parent , the idea of traveling is nerve racking . It can give jitters to even the strong hearted . So as a recently promoted parent who has successfully travelled with an infant , I thought I would be doing a great favor to all those parents out there who are breaking out into a sweat at the thought of taking a trip with their little one. Here’s my list of must-do’s when traveling with an infant Travel hands free Make sure you travel with minimum baggage on hand, check in whatever you can and always make sure at least one parent is dedicated 100 % to carrying the toddler . You can choose to carry the infant in your arms , in a pram or a baby carrier bag . Personally , I find prams to be cumbersome and carrying the baby in your arms can be quite tedious , so be smart , use

  • Three Sisters
    Asmita Javdekar | 16-Aug-2019
    Three women, donning navwaris in the middle of the city, is a fairly uncommon sighting these days...These three sisters had taken early morning buses from their respective villages, bordering Pune, to convene at their brother’s house for Raksha Bandhan...All three of them were gushing about being photographed and featured on social media. They were in quite a rush to get back home as their daughters’ in law had their own Rakhi commitments as well...By the time we finished our chitter-chatter, their brother had organised for them to be dropped off by a rickshaw.Their joy knew no bounds.Neither did mine.

  • In continuation: DOES YOUR HOME HAVE AN ECO-HEART?
    Manasi Bhosale | 16-Aug-2019
      Scrolling through Pinterest the other day, I came across a blog post that was both clever and effective at once. The blogger wrote about a game she plays with every new person she meets. This game made for a great topic of conversation as well as had a huge influence on the persons involved. So, it went like this- She would ask the person what the most toxic things in their homes were and what was the number one thing they would change!  She got some stirring answers:   Non-stick cookware Wi-fi routers Air fresheners  Bug sprays Antiperspirants Fabric softeners   As you may imagine, all these controversial items were soon dealt away with or their usage considerably reduced.   Living green is a conscious choice. Modern lifestyles have solved many problems to make our everyday life comfortable but only to have added some serious other issues. Of course, we are aware of them and want to redeem ourselves by doing our bit for the environment. We want to make chang

  • If you have seen these serials, your childhood was savage
    Sonal yakkundi | 12-Aug-2019
    If you have seen these serials, your childhood was savage   Let us take you on a ride to the serials in the ’90s to 2010 when Indian television was at its best. For readers in Indian, get ready to claim your slice of nostalgia! People who were born in the ’90s, their childhood was the best, as these serials were telecasted then. Let’s go back in time and remember your childhood.     Hum Paanch       This show had a perfect recipe for comedy. Hum Paanch featured a nagging wife, five dysfunctional daughters with their own unique ways of seeing life, a talking portrait of the dead first wife, and amid all of them the husband finding it really hard to survive in the female-dominated house!                     Shaktimaan   ‘Sorry Shaktimaan’ – how many times have you said this line?

  • San Sebastian
    Team Kalamwali | 11-Aug-2019
    San Sebastian - By Eesha Patwardhan   After a late night sipping on some sangria goodness in Barcelona it was time to head north to San Sebastian in the Basque country. We left by rail at the crack of dawn and started our journey to probably one of the best beaches in Europe and definitely the best beach I’ve ever been to .  Sitting cozy in the train leafing through the pages of the Lonely Planet Traveller , I felt all so “travelleresque” .Yes this word is my contribution to the Oxford Dictionary.  Every good rail journey involves food as anyone who has travelled by rail will know. So it was time to visit the pantry which was more like a cafe with the view of the constantly changing landscape. Even the train food is nice here. Something as simple as grilled cheese and ham sandwiches tastes good when you use the best produce . Feeling satiated with the gooey cheesy goodness of the sandwich washed down with the freshly squeezed Naranja (orange juice )  I made my way

  • It´s my life!
    LanguageCafe | 10-Aug-2019
    And I have learned to love it. I enjoy trips down memory lane, listening to stories my aunt narrates in her cool, shaded balcony amidst cups of hot tea and crumpets. I don't get upset if my maid turns up late or not at all. I don't hesitate to give her an advance, even if the month has just begun. No more haggling with fruit and vegetable vendors and with auto drivers. No more judgment and no more opinions. I don't have to explain anything to anyone. If someone feels I am wrong, I just smile. Maybe they are right. Maybe not. How does it matter?  My inner beauty reflects more of me without me having to say a word. My happiness is my business and I am busy minding it.

    Poetry, musings, good books, long drives, movies with meanings, impromptu meetings with friends, a stranger locking eyes with you and holding the gaze, rainy days and rainy nights, lush green meadows with yellow mustard fields all around, balloons that soar up in the sky and disappear, paper  lanterns that carry your dreams to the sky..... Serendip, isn't it? So let's go ahead and enjoy this benevolence. LIVE like this is the only life we have.

    Meadows of spring flowers, vineyards and old country homes, huge old oaks that have seen centuries, creepers that find crevices to take root from and flourish, rainy evenings with cups of hot, spiced tea...... really you can fill it up with anything you wish! Now, how lucky is that!

    I am a mother since the past 8 years. I have a son who is growing at the speed of lightning. It feels like he dashed through the phases of Baby TV, Jake and the Never land pirates to Pokemon and Bey Blade and has landed on the Minecraft phase in just 267 days. He is 8. But I ask myself. How old is the mother in me?  Two weeks back we had planned to watch the latest Spiderman movie and my son asked me “Did you check with me before booking the tickets?”. I was quite taken aback. Although I applauded the clarity in his thoughts and also gave myself a pat on my own back for raising a child which does not fear expressing his displeasure regarding a plan. (I could not imagine an 8-year-old ‘me’ asking my mother the same question without having to pay for it without a red cheek). I also highly appreciated the effortless objectivity in his tone. No attitude. No arrogance. A plain expression of his feelings. He went to bed that night and I sat thinking about my own growth as a parent. A c
