Book Review- It Doesn't Hurt To Be Nice by Amisha Sethi

Title: It Doesn't Hurt To Be Nice  Author: Amisha Sethi Publisher: Srishti Publishers & Distributors ISBN: 978-93-82665-48-9 Number of Pages: 130 Price: 175 [INR]
Usually, before starting any book, I read the summary on the back cover or on the internet. So, the first impression I got when I started reading the book was that of any other self help book. But its only when, the story detailed out small instances in Kiara's life, common ones which happen in most of ours, that it made me sit up & introspect. 

The author has in a simple language managed to explain the deeper insights of life, those which we refuse to acknowledge in our fast paced life, the tiny signs sent by the Universe- to be kind, to let go & move on. 
Kiara, a thirty year old, top marketing professional has climbed the ladder of success by hard work & kindness, not once looking for a shorter route to it. Throughout her life, she finds wisdom in the simpler aspects of life- spreading smiles, joy & mo…


Sun rays peeped through the dusty windows,
Of the attic which had fallen through.
Leaves fluttered in the cool morning breeze,
Dew drops glittered like tiny diamonds scattered across the moss,
Squirrels scuttered in the woods nearby,
Merrily gnawing on the acorns.
Mother Nature looked resplendent.
Bearing no signs of the loss from the storm the night before.
Strong & mighty, She beamed at the new dawn.

Clean & Clear Morning Energy Facewash- Review

Clean & Clear has been one of my favorites in the facewash category, ever since I can remember. The product has maintained its quality & pricing. It lathers well with a small quantity, is extremely good for acne & leaves you with a fresh, clear & squeaky clean skin.
So, recently, when the brand launched its Morning energy range of facewashes, I definitely wanted to try them. The fragrances & colors are really attractive- energizing lemon, purifying apple & brightening berry & come in hues of yellow, green & pale pink respectively.

Purifying apple purifies oily skin Brightening Berry brightens dull skin Energizing lemon energizes dull & tired skin

Price: INR 110 for a 100 ml bottle.

Benefits: The facewash works wonders in the morning, adding a glow to the dull skin. The fragrance is energizing & leaves one feeling refreshed. A small quantity is enough &…

Tata Sky+ Transfer Launch Event

I had a rejuvenating weekend after a long long time last week. On Saturday, met up with a good friend, gorged on delicious food & chilled. 
With Sunday, came the launch event of Tata Sky, which happened to be my first Indiblogger event. The  Tata Sky+ Transfer set top box (STB) was launched, a new technology which allows you to record your favorite TV shows on your set top box & hand held device (Android 4.1.2 & above or IoS 6.0 & above) & watch it anytime anywhere via the new Tata Sky App. Now, isn't that awesome?

What with busy schedules, TV viewing time is mostly late in the day or during the weekends, so why miss it each weekend or download it & encourage piracy..With this new set top box, which is a first of its kinds in India, you can view the shows offline as the recording will be done automatically on the smart phone or tablet via the set top box over a WiFi connection.
The Tata Sky+ STB is available nationally & is priced at INR 9300 for new subs…
