Participate in the Parachute Advansed Goodness Of Coconut contest and win exciting prizes for blogging about the wonders of this age old Indian ‘wonder nut’!
The coconut is no stranger to us in India – we use it in our cooking, we use the fibre to make beautiful things and best of all, we love to use it for our skin. The Goodness Of Coconut Contest, brought to you by Parachute Advansed body lotion – is all about coconut for your skin.
Yes, you heard it right – all you need to do is reach into your memories or think about your daily skincare routine, and blog about ‘Goodness Of Coconut For The Skin’. Be as creative as you can be. Skincare rituals that have become a part of your day? The smell and feel of coconut milk? Coconut for skin as part of Indian wisdom and heritage? These are just some of the ideas we’re throwing out for you to chew on – we’re sure you will come up with more!

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:
"I chose to go out into the remote, wild, unknown, and make it home," says entrepreneur Kiranjeet Ahluwalia Chaturvedi, who owns Birdsong & Beyond.

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.
