Odeon Paan Shop - Connaught Place

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers

I love the Paan here. My recent visit to this place was last week when I went for the Movie Ramleela - Goliyon Ki Rassleela at Odeon Cinema Connaught Place (C.P). This shop has wide variety of paan. Think of any paan you will get it. I have tried Meetha Paan, Saada Paan and the Chocolate Paan here.

Odeon Paan Shop
They have a special Paan called Chuski Paan. It has lot of ice in it they put in your mouth and your mouth will freeze for few seconds. A must have Chuski Paan.

Location : Near Odean Cinemas

Rating : I would rate the Paan here 4.5/5

My Room and the Stinking Back Lane

I still remember guests coming home and they really used to say that my room stinks because of the lane at the back side of my room and plus the smell from the attached toilet and bathroom. My room is at ground floor and just behind is the back lane where people urinate, throw all sorts of waste. I was just fed up of all this and started using dhoop and agarbatti.

Stinky Back Lane
Then about three months ago I attended the Indiblogger AmbiPur meet and the lady from AnmbiiPur told about the AmbiPur Home Range product my first thought was to use it in my room. They gave me the free sample of the product and also was sent by the IndiStuff. One day my brother in-laws had to come for dinner at home. I was worried about the stinks that come from the back lane. I thought of using the AmbiPur Home Range Sample.

The guest came home and they came to my room to meet me. They came and said nice fragnance in your room which is it. I said 'I have just used this Product AmbiPur Home Range'. They said 'It's Nice' as they were talking to me I was still thinking that now the fragnance will go away in a couple of minutes and the room will start to stink and I was amazed they stayed for about half an hour and the fragnance remained for a long time.

Now I used this product daily and It turned my Smelly Air to Smiley Air!!!!

Bacardi Breezer - I Caught Cranberry

Bacardi Breezer is my favourite all seasons drink. I like it more than regular beer or vodka. I can have it any season. In winters I can take it at room temperature whereas Beer and Vodka taste bad when at room temperature.Moreover, I can make cocktails with Bacardi Breezer

Cranberry and Cocktails

At room temperature or Chilled
In winters or in summers
With friends or cousins
At party or at occasions
Only Bacardi Breezer.

I love the cranberry flavour because the amount of sweetness, flavour and the alcoholic content added to it is just in a balanced amount. I started having hard drinks with Bacardi Breezer Cranberry, when one of my friend offered me at his house warming party. Till Date, I have tasted all the flavours but I still like Cranberry flavour the most. And above all cranberry is my favourite fruit.  Cranberry is my favourite.

Cranberry My favourite

Cranberry is the best flavour according to me.. Cheers!!!

There are other flavours also available in Breezer Jamaican Passion, Lime, Orange, Blackberry Crush and Island Pineapple.

An Immune India - Traditional Way

With the increase in population the environment around us has become unclean, polluted and unsafe. We can keep cleanliness around us but all things can be done to an extent. In this environment where there is too much pollution, dust, infections, diseases and viruses children’s are more prone to diseases as the immune system in children is in a developing state. Some of the incidents which I have witnessed are:
1.  My sister has two kids both have weak eye sights at the early age of ten and twelve. The doctors always used to say give them green vegetables. So, they lacked the nutrition in green vegetables.

2.  Children now are eating a lot of Junk Food which is not at all nutritious. As a result, the body lacks the required nutrition and makes the immune system of the body weak.

3. My neighbor kids have weak bone because of lack of calcium in their body.

4. Kids getting cold and flu because of unhealthy environment

The coming generations or children are the future of any country. In this environment where there is too much pollution, dust, infections, diseases and virus children are more prone to diseases as the immune system in children is in a developing state.

Not only children but also adults those who have weak immune system are vulnerable to air borne diseases. To have a good immune system we should maintain a healthy equilibrium in our body.  To provide a good immune system the essential nutrients in kids should be there.

We should try to give them food which is healthy and nutritious. If they do not eat rich foods then we you at least provide them with the help of something. 

If I compare Modern allopathy it will have one tablet or medicine for every thing

One for improving eyesight
One for providing better immune system
One for providing Strength
and one for Acidity resulting from the reactions of allopathic Medicines.

To provide all this Dabur has an excellent product Dabaur Chyawanprash which has all nutrients combined in one. It has 3 Times more immunity.

It has,

Ashwagandha – Which has antistress, anti oxidant and immunomodulatory properties.
Guduchi – Which has antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties and helps to provide strength. It acts as rejuvenator too.
Satavari - It helps to promotes general health. It helps improve memory and is found to be                 beneficial for eyes.
Bala - It has anti oxidant properties and acts as a strength promoter
Vidarikand - Acts as a rejuvenator.

For an Immune India we should:

1. Keep our environment and surroundings clean.
2. Tell to children to have good nutritious food.
3. Take Dabur Chyawanprash regularly

Let’s build together an Immune India with and

Ayurvedic Products and Development Equilibrium

The name ‘Ayurveda’ is made up of two Sanskrit words-‘Ayur’ meaning life and ‘veda’ meaning knowledge.

Ayurveda and Ayurvedic Products


Ayurveda is India's native traditional System of medicine. Ayurveda is one of the oldest system of medicine. Ayurvedic Medicines or products are made from herbs. Remember 'Hanuman Ji bringing Sanjivni booti for Shri Rama and Laxman' which cured their wounds. It was an herb which cured Shri Rama and Laxman.  The medicinal part of Ayurveda is called Charaka Samhita. To study more about it I read a 627 pages book on Charaka Samhita (English Transalation). 

‘Disease is disequilibreum of the Dhatus. Health is equilibrium of Dhatus’.

‘Health is known as happiness. Disease is known as unhappiness’.

These are a few lines from ‘Charaka Samhita’

One thing which I liked about Ayurveda is that ‘Hygiene is the central practice of Ayurvedic Medicine’. Same goes for Ayurvedic Products or medicines.  It is based on five elements earth, water, fire, air and sky. Herbs are also used in our foods. ‘Tulsi’ a herb is used widely used, 'Terminalia Arjuna' is used as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory herb, so now you can imagine Ayurveda is everywhere.
I remember my mother preparing homemade remedies. She used to prepare it with herbs and extracts. These remedies were ayurvedic(prepared from herbs) and they used to effect instantly. Modern Allopathy makes our system react to medicine whereas Ayurveda tries to induce the system of the patient to balance it from within.

Ayurveda and Baby’s early growth and Development

The first three years of baby are the period of incredible growth. The baby develops its brain, learns to play, sleep, temperament and behavior. Right products for the baby make him/her healthy and result in a good natural growth.The development in babies are:

1. Bone Development: At early Development stage the baby learns to crawl, stand, walk and run. Good oil which can develop its bones fast and naturally should be used. I would really want something which is natural should be used since ayurveda is so natural and is prepared from herbs.
Oil Massage has several beneficial effects in the form of weight gain, better sleep-wake pattern, emotional bonding.My nephew is now 2 years old. I have seen him growing. At times he has stomach pains, cold and flu they really need special care. What product we use will shape their early development.

Dabur Lal Tail

Dabur Lal Tail

‘Dabur Lal Tail is used in our home for his massage’.‘Dabur Lal Tail is an ayurvedic product’. It helps the baby to grow 2 times faster which is clinically proven.

Dabur Lal Tail is made of  Shakha Puspi, Masha/Urad, Ratanjot, Karoor, Saraldaru Tail and Til Tail.

Oil Massage can help prevent 'Hypotonia'. Having Low Muscles Tone state is called 'Hypotonia'.
2. Teething: In baby’s early developments they may suffer from stomach ailments, diarrhea arising because of teething and other such problems. ‘Medicines other than ayurvedic are so strong that they cannot be given to babies’. Dabur has products which are ayurvedic to guard them against such problems.
Dabur Janma Ghunti helps them fight against these problems. It is an ayurvedic medicine. It has Anjeer, Ajwain, Kishmish, Palas beej, Vach, Amaltas, Saunf some of them we eat daily in our foods. 

Janma Ghunti
‘Ayurvedic Products and Medicines are the best for babies with no side effects as they try to maintain an equilibrium in body.’

The 'Cook Off with Kunal Kapur' Event

I was shortlisted for 'Cook-off with Kunar Kapur' event by at Banarsidas Chandiwala Institute of Hotel Management, Kalkaji. I reached the venue on time. I knew that all participants will be asked to cook something, I was a bit nervous as I had never done cooking before. I was the first one to arrive. After a couple of minutes another participant Amita ji came Canola Oil had a facebook contest and she was one of the winners. After her came Ragini and then finally Ms. Deeba Rajpal. There were total 10 participants. 

We started with a brief introduction with Master Chef Kunal Kapur. Then we were told to prepare Moong Dal Halwa thank god we were given the recipes. We all started and were given 40 minutes to complete the activity. We were told that all the Halwa which we will prepare will be going to an NGO called Katha We used Canola Oil in our recipe. Master Chef Kunal Kapur helped everyone in the activity and a twist was added to it when we were told to add a Fruit to the Halwa. Somehow, I managed to prepare the Halwa. After, everybody was finished with the preparation Chef tasted all the preparations and had to choose one winner from among us. I was happy when he told the winner is either me or Ms. Deeba Rajpal. The winner of the activity was Ms. Deeba Rajpal. They gave Canola Oil hampers to the facebook winner Amita ji and Deeba. We all participants were also given participation hampers from Canola Oil.

'Canola Oil is high in monounsaturated fat and has a high smoke point of 242 degrees'. The normal cooking at our home is around 180 degrees. We prepared Suji and Moong Dal Mixture and Sugar Syrup differently. Chef told that we can keep the mixture of Suji and Moong Dal for around a month in refrigerator and then depending on the amount we need we can take it out and add Sugar Syrup to it that's WOW.

We all never felt it was a competition. It was a nice cause for which we all prepared the Halwa. Then we all went to the NGO 'Katha' where this Halwa was given. We all had a good time at the NGO meeting little children's how talented they are.
