How consuming Dark Chocolate makes people Happy

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well, Virginia Woolf has very aptly stated the relationship between food and mental health. We cannot deny that when a person eats favorite food, the sense organs work in sync, and mood is stabilized respectively. 

Apart from the food we eat, desserts also play a huge role in stimulating our brain. If you have ever consumed chocolate you will know the smile and happiness that starts the moment you place it in your mouth. The sweetness plays a huge role and the after effect on it the body too.

Many feel the buzzword of eco-friendly products starts as soon as the festive season embarks but the reality is the environment-friendly products are around the year only now, we focus on them. 

Most of us understand the importance of eco-friendly products or habits that can help the environment to retain mother nature but many times fail to reach the right channel. It is a proven fact that collective effort at a single time brings in the change, and that is the reason it is pleaded again and again by the environmentalist to make the wise decision during festivals. Mother Teresa aptly explained the scenario in the brilliant quote “None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful”.

Uncertainty screams, sterility jingle.

Can Dreams be inkling of Future: Short Story



‘No, no, this cannot happen’, shouted Mili and then dropped her rare pillow on the ground and the fall of a water bottle from the side table made her awake.

“Mili, get ready fast and come for breakfast”, said her mother in a tone that was enough to charge Mili to start her day with a sprang. 

Mili started to gather her books, assignments, project material and stuffed it in her bag that seemed to be gathering many substances from decades though it was only a few months old. 

Mili took one final look in the mirror for setting her frizzy hair that starts uprooting after a single stroke of comb or a smooth breeze. 

"Why can’t they settle soon, this hair stuff makes me go crazy, I wonder how girls manage to wear good hairstyles, it would take another few years for me to master it", mumbled Mili to herself.

In the past one and half years, children are bound indoors and another few months too due to COVID 19 pandemic. They will be at home for a longer time than any time before. While children learn many life skills going to school, kids are now coping up with their studies online and also they try to keep themselves busy so that there is no dull moment in a day.  

Parents seek different kinds of activities to keep the child busy. Mostly the development in children takes place at early ages and tapping this valuable time into some useful activities is most important. It is also important to understand the child's interest because one will explore things themselves if they participate wholeheartedly. Accordingly, parents can plan out what is most beneficial for the child to keep them happy and productive. With passing months child's brain starts accepting the physical boundaries but we can surely keep kids energetic in effective ways.

Important pointers to consider for Baby Laundry

Washing baby clothes is a tedious task and needs to be done with a procedure for the little ones. Newborns and toddlers have much clothing at their disposal at regular intervals. It includes bed sheets, blankets, bib, dresses, nappies. Few tips that help to ease out the laundry work

Always separate the lowers and nappies from the laundry. Potty needs to be shed off before nappies are added to the laundry basket or tub. 

Food items also need to be removed from the bib and dresses, shirts so that the whole laundry does not get stained with it.

Read the instructions on the label, and follow the instructions as written such as need only hand wash, or 2 washes separately then can be added to the machine and drying instructions such as direct sunlight or indirect

Toddler's clothes are generally easy to fold, so folding them quickly after drying will cut off the ironing stage.

Always store the clean clothes on a different shelf than in used ones.

It is advisable to wash each cloth that a child wears, whether it is summer or winter washing newborn clothes is always advisable

Don’t use strong fragrance detergents, this may cause discomfort to the babies.

Well, this book Club you to Death by Anju Chauhan takes you to Delhi club and its sequences in a very interesting way.

Dogra family visit the club and the next day the gym trainer Leo is found dead, the Crime Branch chief ACP Bhavani has been called to solve the case in few weeks as this is high profile club and many fingers are being pointed to renowned persons. When the investigation begins ACP finds many loopholes in the club and also comes to know the past of the people which they are trying to silently shun under the carpet. All the interconnections of the people lead to many investigations that help the ACP to unravel the mystery in the end.

In this post, we will discuss the best natural organic baby face creams.


Need of Baby Face Cream in baby skincare routine:

Baby skin is soft and supple and the face is of utmost sensitivity compared to the rest of the body. 

Any direct contact with things or skincare items that are unsuitable for the baby makes the baby's face skin turn red, develop rashes, or show signs of allergies. 

Therefore one needs to be extra cautious while choosing the face cream that is made up of natural ingredients and hydrates the babyface as it is exposed to heat and cold of the room and also the outside temperatures whereas the rest of the body is covered with soft clothing.

Many baby skincare range products are impressing the customers with their deliverables as per the ingredients listed, here are few best face creams for kids which are tried and tested by my family and friends.

Tree's pedagogy of Life with Significant Lessons

Day by day it grows

Elongates at end, so is shadows

Branches bloom to balance

Each one in unique manner

Yet same with strong roots

I am LIFE that springily shoots

In air to fathom the dreams.

Why we need to replace Plastic Toys for Green Environment

In our 3rd post of #EnvironmentalTalks of #CauseAChatter, we will bring your focus on the toys that are an integral part of every household. According to the statistics, 70% of the toys are made of plastic and most of them are not one-time-use plastic that means toys are manufactured with materials that are difficult to recycle. Have you ever thought of recycling the toys or what happens when we discard the plastic toys and did you ever ponder upon the old plastic toys and their effects on children? 

Let us take a closer look at toys and their effect on the environment and how we can make the environment better with few changes.

Toys & their production:

Toys are produced in large numbers but India produces only 0.5% of the toys in the toy industry whereas China produces 80% of the toys in the world. The majority of the toys are plastic made and the life of it depends on the nature of the plastic and the usage of it.


Check the age of plastic toys:

We often keep toys of the elder child for the younger one and plastic toys are easy to handle and care additionally the colors don’t fade and they look as new once washed. But the older the plastic toys more harmful for your child. Earlier production of plastic toys did not go through vigorous checks on the quality of the plastic and it affects a child’s health once the child chews it. So discard all the older plastic toys which are 5-7 years older and it is good if they can be recycled.

नारी की ज़िद : Hindi Poetry on Women's Insistent Nature


Hindi Poetry on Woman - MeenalSonal

नारी तू इतनी ज़िद्दी क्यों हैं ?


कितनी बार गिरती फिसलती है ,

ढलती है फिर उठ खड़ी हो जाती है | 

कोई सोच, कोई सीमा तुझे रोक क्यों नहीं पाती है,

कोई ऐसी मंज़िल नहीं जहाँ तू पहुंच नहीं पाती है | 

नारी तू इतनी ज़िद्दी क्यों है?


सारा बोझ अपने कन्धों पर लेके आगे बढ़ती जाती है ,

जितने पड़ाव आते , उनको पार कर जाती है | 

सारा जग तुझे कभी प्रेरित करता तो कभी तिरस्कार ,

कोई टिपण्णी कोई खबर तुझे नहीं भटका पाती  | 

नारी तू इतनी ज़िद्दी क्यों है ?
