Banned from blowing candles on birthdays?

Yes! Kids of Australia are now being banned from blowing their birthday candles together. Isn't it incredible? I mean how can someone stop them from doing this ritual that is meant to be done with tons of friends?

Kids love blowing candles on their birthdays and doing it together makes it even more fun. This unspoken tradition has been in kids' blood since the earth has cooled down. Even adults too enjoy the anecdote of blowing their birthday candles off till date.

Then why Aussie kids are getting tormented by such unfortunate news to not to do the archaic act on the birthdays?

Because according to National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), blowing out candles together spread germs on one other and thus making kids prone to diseases later. That is why such rule of "Not-allowed-to-blow-off-your-birthday-candle-with-your-friends" has landed unexpectedly.

NHRMC has provided a solution that if children want to blow the candles yet, provide them with separate cup cakes with candle on each or go for a big cake that can be cut and shared together.

Have they gone out of their minds? Means I wonder why such big organization didn't put a simple rule to rescue :: 'Brush your teeth before you cut the cake'. This will be far easier. The only suffering parents have to take into the account will be, to carry their kid's brush and toothpaste along with the birthday gift; and there is always a handful of time before cake cutting ceremony. Kids can utilize that free time by cleaning their teeth in no time.

Or, they can use mouth sanitizer to keep the germs at bay. Easier than above. Children can rinse their mouth prior to the cake cutting killing their maximum germs in a matter of seconds.

This way they can enjoy cake cutting together and sing the Happy Birthday song with the same energy and glee. Someone please tell NHRMC to cut the crap and provide the solutions like I have given above. This way Aussie kids will be saved. And who knows our country may be the next in the pipeline.

Therefore, save the kids, provide the solutions.

Why do we need occasions like Mother's Day?

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in this world. Today is a special day for mothers and after wishing my own, I feel great. Mummy did not know today is her day and she was simply surprised when I wished her. She wished me back and then we chatted for a little more while before we hung up.

But before calling her, something else had happened. I was calling her but she was busy somewhere for incessant 20 minutes talking to someone else. Finally I called my father and informed about it's Mother's Day today. He chuckled and wished me. Then he asked,

"Who has made days like Mother's day, Father's day etc.? Do we really need such occasions?"

I laughed. Comments similar to this often flow my way nonetheless I replied to him.

"No. Actually we really don't need such days but if dedicating one day especially to our loved ones, we can shower some extra pounds of love, affection, care and gifts, there is no harm in celebrating them. For the rest of th…

Happy Diwali!!!

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and full of laughter diwali (I guess I am the first one to wish you all :) ).

It's 12.30 AM and I am awake doing some interesting chit chat with my beloved husband. He is such a great talker and an even better listener (later one goes in my favor of course ;) ). We are exchanging diwali wishes with our parents. I am really happy today as I'd be making a number of really delicious food items (you all are invited too), making two rangolis afterwards and then enjoying the evening with our friends along with firing crackers. I know I know crackers are unfriendly for our environment. Therefore, we all would be doing it in a limit :). My husband is such a great supporter. He loves doing chores with me which makes everything so special and quick of course. I find it sweet. I also enjoy his company pretty much. Yayyy!! We are going to squeeze the maximum joy out of our favorite festival....again.
And I had promised, I am sharing the two d…

25 ways to save water

My father has asked me to help him out in writing an article on "How to save water? or simply put, "Water Conservation". While working on it, I thought this article is worth sharing on my blog as water conservation has become one of the hottest topic world wide in last few decades. Importance of water now-a-days is well known by everyone. We need water from the first hour of our waking life till the last one. Retaining the water will also help in cutting down on other global crises like global warming and droughts.
