What does Kids Freedom mean for you?

Parvarish, a film released in 1977 starring Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna is a story of how a criminal’s son (Amitabh Bachchan) goes on and becomes an efficient police officer whereas a police commissioner’s son (played by Vinod Khanna) turns out to be a criminal dealing with diamonds to Mafia. The film shows the impact of Kids Freedom.

When I first saw this movie, I thought how that would be possible. This was a very dramatic typically a Bollywood example. A more relevant example in today’s world would be children of upper middle class and higher class suiciding due to the Blue Whale game. No, I am not stereotyping to any particular incident to high class and low class but what I mean here is if these kids own a smartphone in today’s world. They can have access to education and all the facilities then why is that these kids fall prey to such things??

What would be deciding factor for kids Freedom?

Have you wondered what could be the deciding factor of how children are Born and Brought up?

kids Freedom is a very important factor when it comes to deciding how their future would be like.

  • Would it be happy?
  • Would it be full of tension?
  • Would it even exist?

Kids Freedom does not just mean that their parents or whomsoever the guardian is, would let them do whatever they want to play, whenever they want to come back home as when they feel like. Kids Freedom mean giving them the freedom to live their childhood up to the fullest yet let not the innocence be taken away. Kids Freedom mean giving them all the facilities as well as liberties but also to keep a track that they do not misuse it. Today’s parents or guardians have a bigger challenge as they have to manage to have the time from the lives to keep a check on the day to day activities kids do and to advise or instruct them as to what is right and what is wrong.

kids freedom
Freedom your kids

I am sure a lot of you might agree to this that No person is bad only situations make him/her bad and if these kids are taught at a very young age that freedom can be used to tackle these situations well then problem like Corruption, Crime, Suicides would not stand a chance.

As our former President, Mr. APJ Abdul Kalam rightly said, “The ignited minds of the youth is the most powerful resource on the Earth. I am convinced that the power of the youth if properly directed, will bring about transformed humanity by meeting its challenges and bring peace and prosperity.”

This blog post is a part of #LetsDiscussFreedom Blogathon hosted by http://mommyvoyage.com https://themomsagas.com http://www.foreversassymommy.com http://www.thereadingmomster.com I would like to thank Shruti Giri from https://fastnfeminist.wordpress.com for introducing me and I would now like to introduce Reetuparna http://www. ritzilyyours.com and recommend you to read her views on the prompt, ‘What Does Freedom Mean To You’.

Freedom obviously means to do whatever you want as per definition. But have you actually thought about it? Are you actually feeling the essence of being free?  Ask yourself as no one can trap you until you want.

What Does Freedom Mean to Me

Freedom to me means to do multiple things without listening to others or accepting orders from them. When I asked my daughter what is freedom? The first thing she asks me what is it?? Now I take it in two ways… Good thing is that she is not trapped anywhere and feel safe and secure under our roof. But the bad thing is she doesn’t know actually the meaning of freedom.

If she is being stubborn on some things, and if I agree with her actions, she dances like a free bird. This means freedom for each individual differs.

Let me tell you one personal example, I was in S.Y. BSc and was selected for the project in inter-college competition and had to go to another college to take the model along with my teammates. Till F.Y. BSc my parents accompanied me for each n every project or any competition.

This was the first time I had gone alone to the biggest college of Mumbai and it was near the beach too. So after completing the project submission, my friend told us to go to beachside.

Freedom is…

Freedom to me
Freedom to me

I still remember the moment when I was flying like a free bird near the beach and my friends were laughing at my childish behavior. Only my bestie could understand the moment and she said ” today for the first time she is living for herself. This doesn’t mean that my parents didn’t take us to picnic. We always went to trips under the protective shield of our parents.

So to me, freedom means to do friendships with anyone, who works for us.

Sometimes people want it from pushy parents who keep on negating about what to do, what not to do.
But I feel over freedom to a child brings stubbornness and no respect for elders. So it should not be given as free air, rather it should be given in form of a drop of water, each drop is expensive and has meant it.

 

Freedom also can also cater to environmental problems like I feel I need it from Mumbai traffic which is creating the hell of our life. I also want freedom from pollution and population which is growing in India like swarming ants.

 

I want to get freedom from people who are heartless towards animals and go beyond limits to show their cruelty towards them.

Freedom from corruption, women harassment, and crimes in kids.

Freedom from blame games, unethical attitudes of people creating a mess for other people just because of such cheap mindset.  Overall to me, it does which is right for everyone.

Benefits Of VITAMIN E For Human Body

Vitamin – Vita+min =vital mineral for your body. Vitamin are not always produced in your body, some vitamins have to be outsourced. Vitamins are those important minerals with out which your cell compartment don’t work in your body. In simple words,vitamins are energy fuel of your body. Vitamin E work as fuel for our body.

Car will run with petrol but when you add special oil for engine, it works smoothly. Similarly body if starved for vitamins will work with all futuristic disease or symptoms or problems but when your body is filled sufficiently with essential vitamins, your body shines and work in sync. Make your body health first priority in life.

Taking a closer look at the lifestyles we live today, even though we feel and look healthy, there persists lack of some important nutrients in our body. We call it “deficiency”. What do we mean when we say a particular vitamin is deficient in our body? Vitamins are one of the major nutrients in our body and the lack of it is called its deficiency. A deficiency of any vitamin calls for a poorly functional body.

Vitamin E, an antioxidant and one of the essential vitamins our bodies need .It fights free radicals and prevents lipid destruction in cell-membranes. That’s why any source of food taken for Vitamin E should always be taken with lipids or oils, as it’s a fat soluble and it works better. Chemically, it refers to a group of  compounds which includes both Tocopherols, and Tocotrienols. Usually Vitamin E is found majorly in North American diet, which includes corn oil, Soya bean oil, margarine and dressing.

How to find out whether you are VITAMIN E deficient?

Then ask four questions to yourself.

Are you experiencing abnormal hair fall?

Do you get extremely tired at times?

Are you dealing with dull, dry skin and muscle soreness?

Do you feel weakening of eye muscles and the often fluctuations in your eye powers?

If its a YES, then there is a deficiency of a vitamin and that is the Vitamin E. Although you may not be able to realize it, these symptoms still exist. The only way to overcome these symptoms is for us to know how very important it is that intake of Vitamin  be absolutely appropriate.

Health benefits of Vitamin E

Vitamin E helps in Keeping Skin Healthy:  It  helps in reducing the constant effects of the exposure to sun’s ultraviolet rays. You prevent early wrinkles that develop with age.

Some gain weight, some suffer skin problems. It helps maintain these imbalances.

Vitamin E helps Destroy Free Radicals in the Body: Our body in holds both good and bad nutrients. It kills these bad, free radicals that serve harmful for our body.

Vitamin E helps keep our Eyes and Brain Healthy: Our brain and eyes are the healthiest when rich in Vitamin E. The vitamin acts as an antioxidant and helps kill the radicals that damage the eyes. It also helps in preventing diseases such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. 

SOURCES OF VITAMIN E

Now that you’re well aware of the health benefits of the Vitamin E, I shall help you find the sources that are rich in Vitamin E.

Vitamin E

Eating a healthful diet that is rich in nuts, seeds and oil is one way you manage your appropriate intake of Vitamin E. The other is that is the Supplements that have become very popular these days as antioxidants. These supplements help cells from damage.You can use soy, safflower, sunflower, wheat and corn oils are key vegetable oil sources of Vitamin E. Peanuts, Almonds and Hazelnuts are some rich and easy picky Vitamin E sources.

Make sure you eat all the green leafy vegetables which are called the powerhouse of all nutrients. Fruits , Juices and  Cereals  make necessary food options for the intake of Vitamin E in abundance . One major thing which my mom told me for Vitamin E source is asparagus and aloe Vera. In dessertic environment people  eat this asparagus as it grows on aloe Vera and  hence very good.Let us make a dish which is full of Vitamin E.

 Rainbow Salad 

vitamin E

Ingredients 

1)green and purple Asparagus (purple asparagus has more anthocynanin pigment which is very good antioxidant.

2) beet root green.

3) purple cabbage

4) walnuts

5) hazelnut

6)sunflower seeds

7) olive oil and drizzle of sunflower oil or soy oil.

Methods 

Just boil the fresh asparagus in water for two minutes.
Over cooking may destroy vitamin E. Cut all veggies in 5 inches.
Now take a pan, put some olive oil and sunflower oil add some garlic.
Saute all veggies, add salt, crushed nuts and roasted sunflower seeds.
These seeds are really tasty and I give my daughter all roasted ones because she loves munching on it.
Serve hot.

Tips : always eat fresh salad because vitamins E is a fat soluble compound and hence only show its property when cooked in oil.

If you really find difficulty to make this salad for  Vitamin E , doctors greatly recommend the #Evion Supplements , India’s no. 1 Vitamin E Brand. Evion is a fat soluble vitamin and its long term intake leads to its storage in the body.

Simple lifestyle changes will help you go a long way in fighting Vitamin E deficiency and regaining and retaining your youthful glow and health. With the right amount of Vitamin E intake in the diet and doctor-recommended supplements like Evion, one can live a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.

On a bright morning, all heads turned around in the reception party, where white and pink rose bouquets hung around on tall flower stands to come across exotic in itself.

With trumpet sound brought in radiance and whoops of joy. Laced with diamonds and gold necklaces, she got down from the elephant.

She reaches to a man with white garland and some pious things.

The girl holds onto the saintly things as the priest reads out the holy mantras. The girl then walks to the back room and comes out in white but not she wore earlier. This one’s a handmade white colored dress made by her senior. Without jewelry, She went bald by this time and her head was covered with her pallu.

She appeared as an angel ever more beautiful. She had now chosen the path to heaven and Moksha by taking Deeksha, a step closer to reach God.

Vegetable and Fruit Carving: A MIND-BOGGLING ART

I was 17 when  I applied for a competition in college For Vegetable and Fruit Carving. I entered without any knowledge and training but coincidentally I won that contest. I got those ideas from a marriage function I had attended a day before. But my curiosity didn’t stop to learn more and more about this art. And I tried in hobby classes for Vegetable and Fruit Carving. On a very first day, I realized that this is not easy as it looks. You need to have a 3D vision when you’re on the particular fruit. I first admired those intricate and sort of unique designs which my teacher taught me and gave a good try at home.

Fruit Carving

So, I couldn’t sleep that night as I was highly fascinated by those colourful decorations and such innovative patterns, flower designs. I had seen a rose made out of a watermelon, a leaf out a cucumber and some of those weren’t particular fruits or objects, just pretty to look up to. And I was damn curious to learn on the same night and as a young teenage girl, I wanted my career with this fruit carving.
After Mom dozed off, I pulled a fruit out of the fruit basket and tried my hand to make a flower out of an apple, only to get a cut on my little finger. I tried a number of times but I couldn’t get the right way to do it. And as you are aware that when we do not understand the know-how of a particular thing, we do not succeed at it. That night, after applying the ointment, I dozed off too.
Today when I see the images of those patterns on fruits in a magazine or any restaurants I recollect my those old good days of art. The curiosity has again aroused in me and wants to learn again to Master the art. So let me you tell you in detail.

 

Vegetable and Fruit Carving

Carving is an art in itself. Vegetable and Fruit Carving is the art of carving fruits and vegetables to form beautiful objects, such as flowers and birds. Nowadays, people also carve out faces of people, animals, monuments and a number of different objects.

Fruit Carving

ORIGIN OF CARVING?

The art of Carving originated in 14th Century in Thailand. This form of artistic expression is applauded and loved in Thai culture, China, Japan and presently in many parts of the world.

Now that we know what is Fruit and Vegetable is all about, keen people like you and me would love to try a hand at it.

HOW TO DO Vegetable and Fruit Carving?

Artists carve out astounding shapes and designs. You require a sharp knife and a fruit or a vegetable of your choice and with enough practice, you and I can easily carve out attractive decorations and patterns. There are special tools to design this carves. You have two main basic knifes for 45degree and 90 degree to carve design.

I shall show you How to Carve a Cucumber Flower :

– Take a large cucumber and cut it a third from the end or a small cucumber into the half.
– Now, take a sharp knife and slice off the outer-covering into strips, leaving all the strips attached to one end of the cucumber.
– Make some more strips the similar way until the outer-covering forms ‘outer-petals’ of a flower.
– Now as we slice off the white flesh of the cucumber, we form the inner white petals of our cucumber flower.
– Remove the seeds and the centre of the cucumber using your knife.
– Now, add a colourful centre of the fruit, probably a small cherry or a berry, a circle of tomato or even an actual flower will do.

For now, you and I know a simple carving method and much more can be learned if you invest your time and do enough practice.

Vegetable and Fruit Carving: HOW APPEALING IS IT?

The art of Vegetable and Fruit Carving has become increasing popular in real life when we visit luxurious and magnificent hotels as well as on television cooking serials as food appeals to both to our eyes and our taste-buds.

Carved fruits and vegetables are being on display at the weddings, birthdays, private parties because they are kind of eye-candy to the people of all ages. Many times, the food carving seems so admirable and eye-pleasant that we resist to eat it and simply take in the beauty of it. Vegetable and Fruit Carving has been and shall always will a breath-taking and a mind-boggling art.

Check out some images clicked by me recently in New year party and some are made by me.

One day traveling with an office colleague I kept my passport in her handbag because I was not carrying any bag. It was a long and tiring flight, so while leaving from airport to home, I forgot to ask her about my passport and she too forgot to give back to me.

My colleague was having another flight to her hometown after few hours, so I said her goodbye and left for home. The very next day while unpacking the luggage I realized I don’t have my passport with me, at that particular moment all the consequences which I will have to face, started flashing in front of my eyes. I sat down and started thinking with a cool mind, and I recognize that I had left my passport in my colleague’s handbag, without wasting a single minute I called her and asked. She replied positively and only after hearing yes from her I got relief. Even today when I think about that moment, I get goosebumps. I think if I would have kept my passport safely, this situation would never have arrived. So the safety of our passport is extremely important.

AS we all know Passport is our legal identity. It is the only document which shows your identity when you are outside your country. You might have several Xerox copy or might have some other document to prove your identity but losing your passport under any circumstances will surely spoil your entire vacation and you might also waste your precious time in searching or for applying a new one.

That’s why passport holder is a perfect thing to keep your passport safe from been theft or from getting damaged, because if you will have a proper and fix a place for the passport it will surely be safe always.

One can choose passport holder of your own choice, the company also offers the system of personalization your passport holder with your own name with some extra amount. Its price tag is also affordable when it comes about luxury and quality.

The product comes with a one-year material and craftsmanship guarantee and is very durable. Black and white color of passport holder give the best look. I got an off-white color which I really liked it. As my name is clearly visible.  The only problem I found is that it is too small to fit a passport which has thick or many pages, it takes time to insert inside. But the other side you can see that, once you put inside it will never come out or fall outside while removing from your pockets.

In fact, I would suggest if you are regular traveler as a family then you must select in various colors and your name impregnated on it. This will avoid confusion when you travel on a big family tour.

There is no harm or side-effect of using Urby passport holder so one should try this once and should avoid the tensions of misplacement of passport in future. This is a sponsored post but my review is genuine and true.

I honestly like the idea of this personalized URBY PASSPORT HOLDER, which you can even gift to your friends who are going for taking education in foreign countries.
