terra chips the style symphony

It was a slightly cold morning of 14th November and my Chip ‘n’ dale, (my nephews) were demanding for a kids’ party as it was International Children’s day.

Though they fight with each other most of the time, yet it’s difficult to keep them apart. So, to please them, I planned a theme kids’ party for my ... Read More »

SEREIN, the Luxury Township at the lush Malabar Hill of Thane

“There was an old woman who lived in a shoe!”— and that nursery rhyme came true when I visited the hanging gardens and Kamla Nehru Park of Malabar Hills years back and entered into the ‘Boot-Shoe House’. I was not an old woman then, but wanted a similar house for me, amidst the very same greenery when I’d grow old. ‘A middle-class person residing in Malabar Hills’— would sound a shaggy-dog story for many but Serein has made it possible ...

PronGo bags by PLUSS

My sister had to undergo a fatal surgery while she visited a remote place. She didn’€™t have time to be shifted to a well-equipped hospital in a nearby city. She had been operated with fewer facilities, thanks to the medical help provided by a noted hospital which urgently sent all the necessary medicines, vaccines and blood bags for emergency transfusion. But sadly, many of them got corrupted due to extreme hot temperature and humid atmosphere. Though the hospital took all ... Read More »

Canara Bank HSBC OBC ULIP: Plan the uncertain

Life is uncertain. No matter how much we systemize, synchronize and arrange it, we should always be prepared to welcome unwanted, unwilling. “Uncertainty doesn’t make life worth living, quite, but it does make striving and gambling worth attempting”— rightly said by Walter Kirn. But, a wise person always substitutes ‘striving and gambling’ as ‘saving and planning’. Being rational species, we always save our last bite for the next meal unlike animals. An animal overeat its food and throws the left-over ... Read More »
