The Power of Voice to Clean India


How many times you have seen things which you did not like and raised your voice against it? We Indian’s are tough to mind our own business from childhood itself, and that’s the reason we never raise our voice against anything wrong until it directly affects us. But gone are the days when staying quite and ignoring things use to work, the new generation of India need to speak. We have to raise our voice to make our opinion getting hared. There is this campaign #AbMontuBolega which is going viral on social media. This is about raising our voice for right. As responsible citizen of this country it’s our right as well as duty to give our opinion for things which are not happening the right way. Be it about corruption, eve teasing, cleanliness, pollution or anything which need attention from citizens and authorities, we have to talk about it to create awareness.  

Today with #AbMontuBolega campaign I want to draw everyone’s attention towards the clean India of our dreams. I live in Bangalore, the technology hub of India. This is the place where one side of the road we see tall, shiny office spaces and on the other side of road we see these big heaps of garbage. To reach to our clean, air-conditioned offices we have to cross the dirty roads with pills of garbage on sides. The bad smell and mosquitoes which are caused due to this garbage creates many problems and health issue for us. The Authorities somehow have always kept their eyes closed towards this issue in Bangalore. People protest, complain for a day or two but after that they get busy with their daily life and start accepting this garbage crisis as a part of their city. We have to change this, we have to raise our voice against this. We have to stop just covering our nose with scarf while crossing the garbage heaps on road and silently blaming authorities and people. We instead have to educate ourselves and people around us about garbage segregation. We need to follow it strictly and have to make sure that authorities full fill their duties too. They should create proper garbage dumping areas and have to collect garbage every day. Proper waste management system has to be installed in the city.

And this is not the story of Bangalore alone; all the big and small cities in India are suffering with the same issue. We have to understand that it is our responsibility to not just clean our house everyday but also take care of our city’s and nations cleanliness. Clean India will be healthy India, Clean Indian will be beautiful India and Clean India will be the India of our dreams. If we remain silent then our dreams will never come true, we will have to work towards it and we will have to talk about it.



So next time when you see someone throwing garbage on road and not in the dustbin just tell them that what they did is wrong, don’t let it go silently. Next time when the city authorities do not clean the waste on time you complaint about it don’t just watch. Because when we will speak then only our problems will be heard and resolved. To get the clean India of my dream now I will also speak up. Kyuki Bin Bole Ab Nahi Chalega #AbMontuBolega.

A Healthy Child Makes a Happy Home


After a long tiring day at work when we come home and get a tight hug from our child it feels awesome and all the tiredness vanishes in no time. A house where there are no kids feels serious and boring but a house full of kids or even with one kid is always filled with energy and joy. Their giggle, pranks, and cute questions makes the kid the reason of happiness for the house.

Children’s are full of energy all the time and their energy makes the home lively. Recently my sister visited me with her toddler and the kind of energy and fun he bought to our home was something me and my husband has not experienced before. That week I was so eager to go back home after office that after 4 in evening I was not able to concentrate at work at all. All I wanted to do was go back and play with my nephew. When I shared my feeling with my husband he said even he felt the same, he too wanted to spend more time at home than at work. And when my nephew left all of a sudden our home felt so silent and lifeless. We both were missing his giggles, his playful talks so much.

Similar things I can remember from my own childhood too. My maternal grandparents used to live very close to my house and they always wanted me and my siblings to stay with them and play with them as that used to fill their house with fun and joy.  Our parents used to scold us when we used to do more masti but whenever I or my siblings used to look sad or silent my parent used to get worried. I remember on my parents 10th wedding anniversary they were planning a big anniversary bash and just 3 days before their big day I fell very sick. I was down with jaundice, and my parents were busy talking care of me and visiting doctors. They considered cancelling the anniversary party but by then all the guests were already informed so cancelling it at last moment was not possible. They went ahead with the party but my dad and mom used to keep coming in my room to look after me in turns. There was party in the house but they did not look happy. And then when I finally recovered we went out and did an ice-cream party, and that day my parents looked way happier than they looked on their anniversary day.


So this is really true that a healthy child only makes a happy home. It’s our responsibility to keep our kids healthy, and to keep them healthy their immunity should be strong. Healthy diet and healthy habits like working out regularly, cleanliness, good sleep etc helps to improve immunity. With these things adding things like chyawanprash in our daily diet also helps improve immunity. As kids we used to have chyawanprash everyday in the winters to keep out immunity strong and to save ourselves from cold and flu. My mom used to say that chyawanprash was invented by an ancient Rishi Chyawan, it’s a mix of various herbs which keeps body’s immunity high and helps us stay healthy. In modern days there are many brands selling Chyawanprash and Dabur chyawanprash is my favorite in all of them. This is a trusted brand we have used from our childhood days. It claims to improve immunity by three times, and I feel it’s not just winters when we should eat chyawanprash Daily but we should eat chyawanprash everyday in every season to have good immunity. Immune kids are healthy kids and the house of healthy kids is a happy home J
