And I sniffed!

Note - This post is a product review post written for Ambipur Air effects and Indiblogger.in

 Researchers and Scientists across the globe have all the time in the world to perform their researches in order to accomplish new theories which could change human lives or may be find in depth details about certain things. As per one such theory , scientists believe that humans could smell 10 different kinds of smells. The Olfactory lobes of the human brain is skillful enough to differentiate different kinds of smells. The neuron receptors  could probably be playing a good role. So from popcorn's to mints to fruits to dirts to flowers to dusts to  sweets to different kinds of aromas! Our talented brain could perform so many functions just like some  ambidextrous folks!

But why are we even talking and discussing about smells? Behold! I will unveil the reason for the same. Last few months I had been tied in my Analysis work which I had been doing for my project. Some times certain circumstances would demand my presence till late night. Of course  staying late night isn't my cup of tea but sometimes staying back late was the only feasible option for me. During those days Indiblogger came up with a contest - Smelly Air to Smiley Air!  But due to paucity of time I couldn't participate in that contest. But I had applied for the Ambipur Air effect product. I received the product in a months time. It was a Lavender Vanilla and Comfort air effects. The courier guy had called me,inquiring me for a landmark. By then I had completely forgotten about this product as I was occupied with too many stuffs during those days. As usual I came home late at around 11 p.m. It wasn't unusual for me as I was used to it. As we go out we often tend to get prone to unwanted agents inform of germs and different types of pollutants which contribute to other kinds of pollutions. These agents do reach our home along with us. So like a possessive girlfriend, they too would always be with you adding to your frustrations, contributing to mood swings and tiredness. And I would just transport my office frustrations from office to home. Day long  work would make me feel weak and tired.  So as and when I reach home, my first thing would be to go to my bed room and lay on my bed for some time. It was a part of my daily routine. But sometimes too much frustrations at office would irk you and you would lose your cool at home and take it upon your folks. Trust me even I am a victim of mood swings. So that day was different. As I entered my house with a frown , I felt something different in fact I smelt something different . I felt like I had entered a different home altogether. For the first time I sat on the main room as I saw my younger sister offered me a cup of coffee.  I smiled at her. She was surprised as she saw smile on my face after I reached home from work. SURPRISE!

Breathe In - Breathe Out - Breathe In - Breath Out! I was feeling  good . It  was so fresh! The fragrance was inviting and it almost transferred my tiredness into happiness! The fresh air only helped in keeping our home better. I loved the fragrance at the first instance itself!

Okay thats me holding the new Ambipur Air effects - Lavender Vanilla & Comfort.!

I should say that the fragrance of the air freshener  had imbued in  a new feeling inside the house. I asked my mother about this and she revealed the new Ambipur Air effects freshener. It was like   a long forgotten story which had knocked my mind once again to rewrite new chapters in this book of life.Sigh! Certain feelings couldn't be expressed in mere words but this brought good change. I no longer rushed inside my room to recoup all the energy lost in the days work. I would feel rejuvenated and fresh! Since then there has been no foul odour. Ambipur Air effect was there to tackle all kinds of smells that cropped in - whether it be fish, dusts, dirts etc. We religiously used Ambipur Air effects everyday. It was a good experience all together! It eliminated bad odour and freshened the air. So your fan won't be circulating stale air any more. It will snatch all the smells from your home and make you feel fresh just like it keeps the air around you fresh! and then it there will be smiles all around your home!

Last week  elder sister visited our place for the first time after her marriage. She was amazed and surprised and  kept nagging mother. I informed her that it Ambipur Air Effect  and nothing else. Such was the magic cast upon by Ambipur Air effect on all those who visited our home. Soon I gifted her the same.  Fresh air circulated within the home and the sweet fragrance would virtually transport us to a completely different world - a world full of happiness and nothing else. So why fret about smells when you have Ambipur air effects?  Try it and you too would find it amazing just like me!

The Birthday Gift



I wish I could express or
Request all the lovely words
And make them say to you
What place you have in my life


It might take a million days
Maybe a few lifetimes
Yet it would incompletely say
The joys you brought to my life


And if I were to barter them
For things and people around
Not all thing in the world would
Equal to your worth in my life


Matters of the heart they say
Are better left unsaid
But the love that brims over
I wish a handful of it could I express


A lot of people may claim
That angels do exist and live
Ask me and I would proudly say
God gave one to me as a gift


And they may say this blind vanity
Is of no good to me but
even your hurts and pain
Have a special place reserved in me


And on your special day
I wish I could have gifted you ample love
So much that could bring
Me back into your busy life


You will probably never understand
What place you hold in my soul
And I know that in your world
There is hardly a space for me


I doubt if all of it makes any sense
There seems no rhyme or reason
  Incoherent thoughts piled up
But I wrote to express not to impress


They say words express many things  and they are intense. I got this as a birthday gift from a dear friend of mine. I could tell you that this is the best gift I have ever received till date. Thanks my lovely! thanks a lot for the wonderful wishes my dear friend. Your friendship shall be cherished. However far and away I might be from you - might be miles away, you are always in my mind and thoughts. Thanks  a lot for all the love and care. Thanks for everything my dear friend. Love you :) God bless you and our friendship and hope we stay friends forever :) 

PS -Today is my birthday :)

My 400th to my Blog, Bloggers and Booksters!

 Friends,

I would like to inform that this happens to be the 400th post of mine. It took me 7 long years to reach  this number. When I started blogging I never envisaged that I would be blogging for so long. But little did I know that I would write 400 blog posts. This is too big a number and I have a list of people to thank who supported me and guided me in this path. Blogging has been a passion for me and I would definitely want to add that life would have been different if it wasn't blogging or bloggers.  Ideas used to stroll in my mind, its these ideas which embrace me and I painted those ideas to decorate my blog with the so called blog posts. It has been a learning experience and every thing counts.  I have come across bloggers who brag about their number of posts. I would like to be a silent blogger and there is a reason why I am writing this post. This makes me feel good and I am highly exhilarated as I type this message to thank each  one of you. During these seven years, I have learnt many things, extracted many things from senior  bloggers. I have derived inspiration from  blogger friends as its a learning process. To add to this , I have made and met many beautiful and amazingly wonderful souls who have always been supportive!

The Tattoo




Cristiano’s boss from Australia finally arrived. He saw a tattoo on his hand. He had seen that tattoo before! If only he would remember where.
“Nice tattoo. From Ashley’s?” the boss asked, showing the same  tattoo.
“Yes!”
“What Price?” Boss asked.
“$ 25”
“He charged me $100 for the same.”
“Fuck you Ashley.” The Boss screamed.

Love, forever!

This blogpost has been written for the Platinum day of Love contest powered by www.indiblogger.in 



Some say that love is the purest thing in this world. I won't deny this fact when I myself have been a firm believer of love. Falling in and out of love has been an integral part of life. It’s something which can imbue happiness inside your not-so-happening life. Even I had a chance to experience the purest form of love. That was during the training days of my first organization. Life had veered out drastically since then.
Thank You Google!

She was just another ordinary girl for me. She never looked beautiful like most of the girls do. She never wore expensive make-ups and clothes. Everything from her way of dressings and mannerisms were ordinary. It was love at first sight. I never believed in love until I met her for the first time.  But even then   when I saw her for the first time I realized that something about her was fascinating. By the time I befriended her and got to know her better I realized that she was the kind of girl whom I had been searching in my entire life! At last I was happy and content that I found my lady love. I started cherishing her friendship. I had completely surrendered to her friendly bonding. I did things to amuse her. I taught her UNIX and SQL so that she would pass the exams and stay in my current organization. She would not hesitate to call me an anytime. Her smile enlightened me and everything that she did for me just took me by storm. She would cook delicious food for me. But my love was short lived. She couldn’t clear her UNIX papers and as per the company policies she had to resign.  One of my dear friend had told me that she had cried a lot and refused to meet anyone. I never met her again. Everything I did for her only seemed to me like a passing cloud. She was depressed and she promised she won't return back to the organization. Life had become miserable by then. Her absence did affect me and the impact was too high that I couldn't focus on my work .She had changed her phone number too. By then I had started to believe that she was never meant to be mine. But somewhere I knew that she loved me and if my love for her was true then I would meet her again.

I would have never believed in Almighty until I met her again. This time I had met her again after 1.5 years. She looked matured and I had witnessed that the fragile intellectual had actually transformed into a professional. We revived our friendship from where we left. She looked more beautiful to me and I once again got to witness her smile which was my drug and my painkiller. Her infectious smile had enough power to convert sorrows into happiness. This time I mustered enough courage to confess my feelings for her.  She accepted me as a part of her life. With elder’s blessings, we soon tied knots. My story may sound to you like a good fairy tale. Trust me life was never the same after I met her again.  Today every moment I spend with her, I recollect the good old days. From training days to working and today she is my life partner. As days passed, we got to know each other well. She matured well enough to take major decisions. I would assist her in almost all the activities. Love is not about going out together, watching movie together or strolling at a beachside. It is a divine bond which enwraps us.  I prefer spending some quality time with my lady love admiring her beauty, talking to her, eating dishes cooked by her, talking through our eyes and so on. Trust me the best thing in this world is to talk amid silence. That would be a perfect day of love for me. A steady relationship is not just built like that. It takes different components which together form the platform for a beautiful bond, beautiful life.

One day as we were strolling outside a showroom, my eyes glanced across a banner written - Platinum day of love. And of a sudden she asked me," What will you do on a platinum day of love?"

I gave her a confused look and said, "I will love you just like I did and I do."

"Everyone gives something to their loved ones. What will you give me?" she asked, looking straight into my eyes.

"I will give you your share of happiness," I said and smiled at her.

"Platinum day of love is when people discover the real love which is omnipresent and forever. It is a realization of true love which will last long." I said.

“Platinum is rare and special. But I realized that I do not need one day to prove my love to you. For someone like me who breathes love and lives you, every day is a platinum day of love. In the name of love, I promise you that I will be there for you in your good and bad times." I said and gifted her platinum ring.

Tears of happiness rolled down her cheeks. She hugged me tightly, so tight that no one could separate us forever.

It’s rightly said that platinum doesn't fade or tarnish with time and true love always stays forever and true! Its love, forever!

Thank You Google Images!

The News!




38 missed calls in 10 mins! He wondered what was going on. He was returning back after dropping his pregnant wife at her mother’s place.

“Jiju, Dee’s labour pain started. Please come to Shashtri hospital.”

He quickly started his bike and left for the hospital. A news awaited him – good, bad and an important news.
