He said :)


Hold my hand and walk with me, why are you afraid?

Love and time have their own healing powers as it is always said.

Come along and ill confine all your fears in my heart,
Give me your dreams and ill make it an art.

Don’t stop even if the past haunts you to the core,
I am with you and your loneliness are not lonely anymore.

Smile, my tomorrows are beautiful only because of it,
And together, yes together we have our future to knit.

Vinisha shah :)

Oh my god! I am late again, no ways – I can’t be late today, foreign delegates are about to come and my boss had told me to come early and I am late, oh no!
I went grab my clothes – Dressed up in my usual office attire.
A phone rings, “vinisha boss in the office and asking for you urgently” but how to reach? I am yet to finish my makeup, oh god no time and without make up I can’t attend such important meeting, what to do now?
Yesterday only I had bought  garnier bb cream for trial –but you know trials are done in the free time not when you are supposed to look perfect but now that was the last option coming into my mind as there Is no time to apply foundation ,compacts ,blush etc because of no time left with me. If I sat applying all these things my boss would have killed me.
So now garnier bb cream prescribed by my favorite, gorgeous actress deepika padukone, which I had bought yesterday only, comes to my rescue. As this was the first time with it, It was like taking a risk and if this don’t work out well, I’ll be looking like a worst night mare for my company and would have spoiled the meeting as you know being the conveyer in the meeting I had to look perfect as I was the face of the meeting and if I didn’t I would had ended up losing my job.
Now garnier bb cream was the last thing left in this world for me. My skin, like me is something which doesn’t accept the new things easily- blah: P Now this is a very risky time to experiment over your skin.
But as I dint had any option and garnier is quiet a trusted brand over the years, I gave a second thought over it.
Ok I grabbed my bag and get in a taxi-hopefully lucky as got a taxi in 2 minutes –hurray
I hastily pull out a mirror –rub my face with cotton and open the newly experimenting garnier bb cream and apply its dots all over the face and neck and massage it slightly over it,so my skin absorbs it.
Wow! To my surprise my skin absorbs it quickly and easily.
And now if I see my face in mirror,  
The little dark circles around  my eyes are visibly reduced.
Some spots over my skin are also very much hidden.The pores are also closed .
Again wow!
The thing which a foundation or primer would have done after so much effort and after that also your make up could have ended up looking cakey this garnier bb cream had done so easily with no effort at all and it blended in the face so easily that nobody can say I had applied anything over it. It made me look so natural or naturally beautiful –I can say.
I needed nothing over my face after this just a lip gloss and that’s it. I am done, before reaching my office I had finished my makeup.
Finally reached my office and the first compliment I get is what treatment you have went overnight your skin looks so good.
Finally meeting went off so well all thanks to my favorite deepika padukone who recommended this otherwise I would have never bought it
Garnier bb cream you rock! Biggest rescuer of my life and it’s my daily savior now.

p.s this is my entry for the indiblogger contest under #garnier bb cream


A child makes a family complete – children are the universe of their parents.
Our life revolves around our children.
we try to save them from all the things which can hurt them.
We can never see our children in pain and when they fall ill our world halts there. Especially rainy season we have to take care of them much as their immunity level drops and they are more prone get diseases like fever, cold, etc
So as it is said prevention is better than cure – and ayurveda is best at it –natural and with no side effects it has a treasure of homemade remedies which our grandma’s used to tell us (dadi ma ke nuskhe) remember.
But in this busy world we don’t have time to spend time on collecting ingredients and making remedies and giving it to our children
Dabur a well known brand in providing best ayurvedic remedies in this modern busy world
Now what should we do to give immunity to save our children from the attack of various viruses and bacteria ,chywanprash a blend of many herbs and spices  which is proven to give immunity at its best this season .
So if our children are happy we are happy too. Besure with dabur chywanprash daily  and  relax. Our children are in the safe hands.
I used to remember how my mom used to run behind me with that white and red packing of dabur chyawanprash although it used to taste good but didn't like that little spicy taste but as it is said ayurvedic things will taste little bad but it has so many advantages with no side effects.
We can not  keep a watch on our children for whole day as somewhere they are attacked by bacteria or viruses but if we have given them the dose of immunity as one spoon full of dabur chywanprash we can be free and relax as dabur chyawanprash will do its work.
Because if we resist children from playing or anything our children will become rebellious and that would be unfair too .
So unnecessarily being too strict on what they are eating and where they are going just give them their spoon of health daily in the morning with a glass of milk and let them be free as you know we live 2014 and restricting our children will be very unfair on their child hood –so let your children enjoy and you relax.
It has more 40 herbs and dabur is a very trusted brand  from past so many years ,on which you can blindly trust and I am sure you wont be regretting it ,so be sure and let your child enjoy their child hood.

Diwali a time to forget all the differences, grudges and come together in festive spirit.
You know what, we Indians are very lucky to have so many festivals one after another an each and every one of the festival giving an opportunity to come together.
Diwali is one of the festivals among it - Bringing families closer, since forever.
Now the question is do we actually make an effort to join our families in diwali?
How easily we say na that ma – paa this diwali I can’t home, have so many commitments –my leave has not been sanctioned, my boss has not signed my leave application etc stuff
But do we are actually making an effort?
Because if we were, we would have definitely joined our families during this time.  
Just watch this beautiful ,nostalgic video from pepsico and try to make an effort 
This is the time when our family needs us the most because festivals are not celebrated alone.
You know what, may be you are some body’s son or daughter –husband or wife –father or mother and if you are away from your home due to the circumstances make an effort to rejoin them as no circumstance is bigger or important than a loving family. Ultimately they are one who is going to be with you not your circumstances or your work.
I still remember being an Gujarati- My mom used to make ghughra (a sweet filled with khoya and dry fruits) chorafari, papad puri, fafda (Type of snacks of course pronounced as snakes)
And it was rule that these delicacies are prepared only during diwali.
They all taste just so good only when mom makes it no matter how much effort I take to make them, I don’t like its taste. They say an maa ke haath ka khaana –maa ke haath ka khaana hota hai :)
Not only food ,decorating home with colourful kandils and lightning lamps etc was also a part and parcel of this festival.Belonging to a jain family we were not supposed to burst crackers but making rangoli ,lightning lamps near door decorating home with small led lights was so much fun.
Don't we miss all those days during this time. Home was filled laughter ,jokes of cousins,uncle and aunties.
Those some nosy aunties saying aare beta kitne bade hogaye ? kanusa course kar rahe ho stuff.
It used to be so irritating but those were the moments we are missing now,right?
so much fun it used to be. so diwali is the time were we have to be with our family because when we needed them they were with us. so now its our duty to fullfill our parent's needs.They used to be there whenever we need them till now they are connected with us through phones and internet but still that personal touch somewhere lacks.Our parents will not tell us, we have to take an effort to read their mind voice and atleast visit them once or twice a year.So they will also have sense of security that our children are there to take of us and we are just one call away from them.
So this diwali make an effort to reach home and bring smiles :) :)
