Today is as good as any to start that weight loss program you’ve always contemplated but today does have its tactical advantages. Find out how!
At the start of 2015, I made a personal resolution to loose weight for two major reasons. One, I had gained weight over the course of previous year. Two, I felt that the excess weight was affecting my daily life and work – in terms of energy levels, productivity, creativity, concentration and effectiveness. Both bothered me, so I resolved to do something. After a lot of online research and talking to people in my network for suggestions, I zeroed in on the Paleo diet. Let me confess that the diet program was very intense and I managed to lose 4 kgs in 21 days. After that I found it impossible to sustain as a working mom. So I decided to take it slow and just eat sensibly for a few days. Then came a business travel so the routine got upset. Next came festivals (no dearth of them in India) – and festival time is usually filled with celebrations around food. That was followed by work pressures. Then kids falling sick. Then some personal commitments. Then some more travel. Then more work stress. Long story short, before I realized, it was October and my weight was almost the same as what I had been during the start of 2015!
Again that bothered me. So I decided to do something about it and started a self-designed weight loss program around 2 weeks back. All it involved was:
I must confess that it was hard to start but I can already feel the difference. I feel more fresh, active and energetic when I wake up. Clothes fit me better.
But I have a lot way to go.
So I was wondering that may be 1 November is a great day to start a new weight loss program. Here’s why!
“The woods are lovely dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep”
– Robert Frost, Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
