By: |

There are experiences you derive pleasure from and there are experiences you are bound to treasure for the rest of your life. The visit to the National Association for the Blind (NAB) facility in Hauz Khas as a part of the ‘Swayam’ community service volunteering program as a part of Coca-Cola Founding Day celebrations was one such unforgettable experience for me. This residential center in Hauz Khas imparts vocational training to visually impaired

The Spectacular 2018 FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour: Sleepless in Maldives

By: |

Looking outside of the hotel room in Male, one would find people playing football at 2 AM. A straw poll will tell you, on an average, 2 AM is a good time to be asleep.  Playing football wouldn’t usually be the most common choice, unless one accounts for extreme passion for the sport. In the 2018 global FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour, if there was one country that waited for trophy most passionately, it was the Maldives.  Passion has rarely

How Coca-Cola added to the Pongal Cheer for this School in Tamil Nadu

Growing up in Ranchi, the capital of the relatively newly created state of Jharkhand, I had still not seen every festivity and its celebration from different states. This was in spite of the fact that the city had several large industrial units, and therefore has an enviable agglomeration of people from different parts of the country. The festivals that I have memories of were those that were celebrated in the missionary schools and the ones that

Friends I Spoke to at the Beautiful Valley of Flowers

By: |

As you go up the hills of Uttarakhand, finding a few friends is hardly an easy task. The population is sparse and the small houses few and far between. Villages and hamlets are found at regular distance but they have found a home in sync with nature. There is abundance of green around. The dominant grey and white, partly due to the mist and clouds, sometimes makes you feel lonely. That is precisely where my friendship with nature began. Now that

Water, water everywhere. But lesser of it to drink! The Himalayas are known as the water basin of Asia, generating up to 42 percent of water in the region. The irony is the average hill family is unable to harness more than 2 per cent of this water! This statistic is a reality for mountain communities. Out of 16,000 villages in Uttarakhand, more than half have been declared water scarce. Districts like Almora, Pithoragarh and Chamoli are facing serious

By: |

A press conference marking the end of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 group stage happened for gathered media on Sunday in Kolkata’s host stadium, and the mood was buoyant but one of a good job, half-way done. Javier Ceppi, Director of the India 2017 LOC, called attendances at the event so far “fantastic and astonishing,” and Project Director of the India 2017 LOC Joy Bhattacharjya said “this has been a tipping point for Indian football, and purely

FIFA Trophy that Inspires Moms & Kids Alike!

By: |

There a few things I do every morning, right after I drop the kids for school and before my husband gets up. It’s a narrow window so I only concentrate on the very important. I make a cup of green tea, skim through the headlines and find out what’s happening on GurgaonMoms. Yes it is that important and you’ll soon understand why. As I go through all the posts on my favorite mommy group, I notice a post specifically for soccer moms mentioning a contest-

When was the Last Time You Did Something for the First Time?

By: |

An airlines advertisement that exhorts you to think- “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” has stuck with me for over 15 years now. In fact, I have sought some ‘first time’ experiences and some of these experiences have been thrust on me. Bareback diving in Polar Sea in Antarctica, traveling on a train to Pakistan and driving 1000 miles in a day to the Mexico border are some. I never imagined that something so precious, so
