dining out

Nowadays, eating at restaurants has become a pretty expensive affair. Every item on the menu has become costlier by a minimum five-10 rupees. Petrol prices are rapidly skyrocketing. Yet, I wonder to see the ever-swelling crowd of dinners and foodies at any little restaurant. This is indeed surprising. Cinema halls and multiplexes aren’t houseful any longer despite Indians being the most ardent cinegoers. Yet, all eateries seem to be bursting at the seams. This dining out culture has become an in-thing. I remember, it used to be a once-in-a-blue moon occasion when my parents would take me to a restaurant, [&hellip

Decorating a small living room can be a challenging task. One may have tons of decorating ideas but unfortunately only limited space. Sometimes, no matter how you arrange the furniture, the room would still seem more suffocating than relaxing. You can, however, make your small living room appear more spacious by choosing the right flooring materials. Carpets and rugs make the room look warmer and cosier without the cramped up feeling of too much furniture. Throw in some bright cushions and you have a cosy spot for yourself. Carpeting is one of the most salient aspects of decorating the home [&hellip

Prevent Child Abuse

We live in a country where every 2.5 hours a child below 16 is raped. A survey conducted by the ministry of women and child development (WCD) revealed chilling figures – that more than 53 per cent of Indian children have faced some form of sexual abuse in their lifespan. And the most agonizing revelation is that out of these sexually-abused children, 50 per cent abusers were known to the victims and were in a position where the child and the family members trusted them.

Are You Watching More TV

The religion section of dailies in India reported on a discourse on the Bhagavad Gita in the cities. Talking about the desires that arise in the mind, the pieces stated how futile they were. The desires could either be fulfilled or not. In the former case, the consequent ‘happiness’ or satisfaction would be fleeting. If, on the other hand, the desire was not fulfilled, there would be a lot of frustration. Given this assessment it appears that the human being is not destined to be ‘happy’. However, there is some good news. Happiness is relative and, yes, some people have [&hellip

Teenage Anger

Managing teenage anger requires expertise which only a few parents possess. A large number of parents just do not know how to handle teenage tantrums, a common cause of friction these days. Teenage, or adolescence, is the most complicated period of our lives. It is a period of transition from childhood to adulthood, when a teenager is neither a child nor an adult, leading to situations where he or she is too old or too young to do something.

Heat affects us as we are warm-blooded animals. The human body must maintain constant temperature of 37 degrees Celsius with slight individual variations. The body has its own thermostat hypothalamus located in the brain – for this purpose. Laws of physics are clear. Heat flows from a hot body to a cold body. On a hot summer day a man standing in the sun gains as much as 350-450 kilocalories of energy per hour. If he is doing moderate work he gains another 350 kilocalories through metabolism – a total of 700- 800 kilocalories of energy per hour. Even if [&hellip
