Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
The festive season is in full swing in India and it’s the time for merriment, late night parties and good food. But most importantly, we also need to figure out how to stay healthy during these festivals!
Here, I will be talking about how we can keep our health in focus, whether it’s in the short term (such as during the festive season) or in the long term (such as preparing for critical illnesses which might affect us in the future).
We should be enjoying ourselves during the festivals but also be mindful of our health. This is the time of the year when we overindulge in rich and oily food, late night outings and gorge on delicacies and desserts. The endless parties with the lavish spreads are tempting even for the most health conscious and disciplined people. Our schedules go haywire and sleep deprivation is common. Festivals are only an example of how living in the moment without thinking about the future is not ideal from a health perspective. One should always plan for the future keeping all kinds of contingencies in mind. I believe healthcare is a continuous process. So, on a regular basis, I break my fitness goals into smaller, manageable objectives which makes it easier for me to achieve them. It also makes me happier and gives me more time to party and occasionally overindulge, especially during the festive season.
Here are a few things that I do to stay healthy while also planning for the future:
ICICI Pru iProtect Smart is a holistic term plan that is flexible and comprehensive. The plan provides a cover against 34 critical illnesses including heart attack, chronic liver disease, kidney failure, brain surgery, major head trauma and Alzheimer’s disease. With longer life spans today, the chances of any of us falling prey to a critical illness cannot be ruled out, and a term plan is therefore a must for every family. Also, the plan includes a life cover which protects my family, in case of my absence.
This festive season, let’s remember that it takes only a moment to change the course of our lives; a moment is all we have, a moment, now and here. As we cherish this moment and enjoy the celebrations, let’s secure our future and live a stress-free life.

"I chose to go out into the remote, wild, unknown, and make it home," says entrepreneur Kiranjeet Ahluwalia Chaturvedi, who owns Birdsong & Beyond.
The story of my mountain home Birdsong & Beyond started taking shape in 2009, on the internet, the way many stories do these days.
My childhood fascination for a life in the Himalayas led to an internship with a central Himalayan NGO instead of a much prized corporate assignment. But when they offered me a full-time job, I refused. I was overcome by fear and a lack of confidence.
My other longings pulled me away – the longing to fit in, to earn validation from others. By my mid-30s, with all the trappings of a middle-class urban life in place, the call of the snows couldn’t be ignored anymore. So I got to work on it with clearer intentions and a stronger sense of what I needed for myself, and why.
Many Indian elderly are firm believers in enslaving a daughter-in-law in the name of tradition which is actually a tradition of oppression and not of religious faith.
Albeit, the popular culture has interpreted scriptures as suggesting that Kanyadaan is the supreme form of donation given to someone, the connotation that the word donation alludes to definitely objectifies the girl.
Even when the exegesis justify the act of giving away the daughter, considering it a ritual to mark the initiation of the daughter into her husband’s gotra and her becoming the part of his family tree.
There is no denial of the fact that this initiation is not required on the part of the groom thereby formally denoting the end of the filial ties with the daughter as it was popularly instructed to the bride during the Vidai ceremonies:
