Lets be a part of AbMontuBolega

Strepsils has initiated the campaign #AbMontuBolega .Its a wonderful campaign where people like you and me get to express their opinion or better still use their inner voice to speak out their Minds. It’s a great platform to express our inner voice . Many a times we have an opinion about a situation and it’s our inner voice or conscience that guides us telling us what to do in that particular situation . As individuals we all have this sense of judgement and opinion. However instead of suppressing our opinions about corruption, following traffic rules etc its  best to make our voice heard, to bring in a change  by visiting and posting our opinions.

As an individual we have opinions and beliefs. Our opinions could pertain to our aspirations and choices about day to day activities or bigger things in life such as career choices. Our beliefs shape us as individuals and give us our unique identity. Together our opinions and beliefs shape our personality and make us unique individuals. Expression of thought is a fundamental right. However more often then not we are subjected to pressures that suppress us from expressing our opinion and our sense of fair judgement.
Our sense of judgment and being righteous makes us civilized. However so many times we find opposition to our expression of what’s right. This could be from our parent’s side when we are young and want to decide a career or it could be peer pressure. Pressure from bosses at office is also very common. This sense of what’s right for us as an individual or for someone we care for or any generic situation is more of an evolutionary state that tries to make us stand for what we believe is correct for us or the right thing to do in a given scenario.

To oppose this free spirited individual righteousness is peer pressure or herding tendency often seen in peer groups of students, or co-workers. We tend to forget that we are not sheep. Instead we are individuals who need to standup  for what is right. Standing for right does not require taking out of processions or getting violent. It is as basic as raising our voice. Being vocal on platforms like and then sharing these  opinions on social media sites like Twitter and  Facebook . The beauty of this campaign is that it gives an individual the power to speak up what they believe is right and making it heard by the authorities or those in position to make decisions. It leverages the power of the social media to create a dialog. The initiation of this dialog brings together right minded people and is a great way to tell every individual that they are not alone in holding an opinion. Support though a share or a comment on facebook or a tweet is a powerful way of synergising opinions and bringing about change. It’s akin to a signature campaign. It tells every individual that they are not alone and have the power to bring in the change that they desire. As even the longest of journey’s starts with a small step. The start of every revolution begins with a thought that is expressed and shared. The power of speaking up and being vocal acts like the power of compounding that sets the tone for change. So speak up and be a part of #AbMontuBolega because it is about our city,our county our world and our civilization. We have the choice of changing whats not right and shaping the future .Cleaning India is not just about cleaning the streets but also about cleaning our society of the evils that exists. Let’s be a part of the #AbMontuBolega at Facebook  Twitter for a cleaner India

Rediscovering The Spark

Raj and Payal had a love marriage. Their marriage was relatively successful as their relationship transitioned from a boyfriend – girlfriend to a husband and wife. Things were going smoothly Raj played the role of a dutiful husband , the man of the house ,the bread earner and Payal played the role of the dutiful wife to the hilt. They both devoted themselves to their realms and roles so much that their marriage worked like a well-oiled machine. A machine that was well oiled with each part knowing its role and moving in tandem with the other part without any friction.
                Friction between Raj and Payal was not present and yet there was something missing . What was it was it the spark of love? They were so engrossed in playing their respective roles that they never could actually pinpoint what it was. Though Payal did complain that Raj did not have any time for her but Raj always tried to make up for lack of time by showering her with expensive gifts.
Then one day Payal received  a postcard inviting them for their Alumni reunion . Immediately she was reminded of her college days. How she and Raj spent time together in classrooms, college canteen and the cinema hall. They enjoyed each others company immensely. Walking hand in hand and going for long walks was their favourite pastime.
Now things seemed to have changed. They were together but still so far apart. She looked at herself in the mirror and was shocked to find herself looking so different. Perhaps the new responsibilities had taken their  toll on her . She looked a worn out version of her previous self. This set the alarm bells ringing. The reunion was about ten days away .What could she do to regain her old self?
She opened the glass dressing table cabinet and her fell on the bottle of Parachute Advansed body lotion. She knew that she had found the answer to her problems.  She picked up the bottle and started using it daily.
By day four there was a visible difference in how she looked and the way her skin felt. It felt soft and fresh. On the seventh day her skin felt nourished and she felt completely transformed.

She was happy that the magic had worked because when Raj came back from work he looked at her ,caught her hand and asked her to accompany him for a walk like they did in their college days.
Raj & Payal  had rediscovered their missing spark thanks to the Parachute Advansed Body lotion.

 Everyone can get a nourished & softer skin


My Dream home

My home is my castle that gives shelter to my dreams .
The Palace , the perfect place for the entire family to unwind. It is the stage where the saga of emotions unfold . The accessories which go into embellishing the rooms of the house add to the personality and provide a distinct character to each and every room and every nook and corner of the house.
Infact the tiles used are a reflection of our personality . They speak volumes about our nature and style. So the tile element has to be chosen with great care so that it fits into the d├ęcor of the specific room.
Each and every room in my home is very important for me and an integral part of my daily life.. This is where I be myself ,live my life and share moments with my loved ones so I want all rooms to be different from each other reflecting the different moods and timings of the day.  This is the reason that I have selected the following tiles keeping in view  the likes and dislikes of my family members.I want my visitors and guests to be wonder struck by the different shades of flooring and walls and I want them to be the focal point of my home.
The perfect setting not only provides a glow to the room but also gives us immense happiness.

My living room is where I spend most of my time so I want its floors to be chic and shining .

So I would like the flooring to be tiled with
STON-KER Floor tiles

My study is the place where I enjoy a game of chess so this black and white tiles would set just the right mood for an intense game of chess.

STON-KER Floor tiles
MANHATTAN NEGRO 59,6x59,6 cm

My exercise and meditation room is just the place for me to find some inner calm and remain grounded and close to nature. The wooden flooring look would be ideal for this room

My dining room should always look bright and sparkling so I have opted for the porcelain look to make it shine from morning to night .

 My Bedroom is the place to unwind after a hard day at work. Here I connect with myself and mother nature so I have selected a natural wood floor finish.

It gives an airy fresh feel to my bedroom.

I want my bathroom to be airy and filled with natural light. I want an earthy feel for this room . This look is given very well by the Hampton brown floor tiles

For a natural feel I will prefer to use Hampton brown wall tiles in combination with pro part graphite . This combination will lighten up room.
 Large round mirrors on the wall would give a classy look.
To contrast the flooring I would like to put a white bath tub so I have chosen Modul Tortula.

In accordance with this white theme I want Lounge blanco basin mixture.

I want the Derbi series tiles ~ monoporosa rectificado rectified wall tiles · relieves reliefs. For the walls of my rooms as they will give a soft and rich look.

I want a very elegant look for my kitchen so I have opted for Zar blanco tiles.

A click for the Bubli in everyone of us #ToiletForBabli

Every time a Babli in a far off village uses a piece of  open land as her toilet .We are at risk of contracting a disease.  Just imagine the millions of Bubli’s and her family members out there who are defecating and Urinating in open lands and farmlands. This multiplies the risk of disease many fold. Both to those who are actively following this practice and as well as those who are in far off places.
The immediate risk is to those who do not have access to proper toilets as they are exposed to insects ,animals , bacteria’s and wild foliage. However there is also a greater risk for the women. As they face added risk of security hazards .
This is a major problem in the rural areas. Where there are no proper toilet facilities as a consequence people resort to using the open spaces.
Defecation in open leaves the faeces rotting in the open, giving a foul smell.Due to rains or presence of water bodies like open wells,rivers and streams. This can contaminate the water bodies and can result in water borne diseases It also is the breeding ground of germs and flies are often found breeding and flying around it. They then sit on open foods and contaminate it with disease causing organisms. When Babli consumes this contaminated food she is more likely ro fall ill. Dysentery is one of the  common diseases that happens and spreads due to poor hygiene and lack of  toilets contribute a great deal in its spread and turn it into an epidemic.
The situation in the cities is no different. The toilets are far and wide and are often not working or not cleaned. The numbers of toilets per hundred humans is dismally low for a populous  country like us.
What this means is that there is a Babli in every one of us. As some point or the other we have all faced a situation when we were looking for a toilet and it was nowhere to be found.
However this is all set to change thanks to Domex and its #ToiletForBabli campaign. Domex the flagship product of HUL is running the Domex Toilet Academy (DTA) programme.This academy makes toilets accessible and affordable for the general populous of our country and is also taking the initiative to promoting the benefits of clean toilets and good hygiene. There efforts have already started bearing fruits and they are actively building toilets in villages of Maharashtra and Orissa. 

With an aim of building 24000 toilets by the year 2015 we can all be part of this wonderful campaign. With every click on Domex company will provide Rs5 towards the programme.
So lets start clicking to contribute and spread the word about the #ToiletForBabli campaign.   “click” on the “Contribute Tab” on and Domex will contribute Rs.5 on your behalf to eradicate open defecation, thereby helping kids like Babli live a dignified life.
