Victory of Good over Evil

India celebrated the festival of Dussehra last week. Dussehra is a very popular festival which celebrates many events – the victory of good king Rama over demon king Ravana, the victory of goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasur, the festival of Navratri and the nine divine nights of fasting as well as a couple of other mythical happenings from across the country. It also marks the beginning of winter and kick starts the festive season in India, with Diwali being the next big celebration around the corner. The underlying message across each of the above events is the same – the festival of Dussehera celebrates the victory of good over evil.…

Sparkle #126: Inspiring Fitness Quotes

Happy Monday wonderful people! How is September shaping up for you? I am having a crazy few weeks at work, but I am not complaining because I have an amazing vacation planned for the last week of this month! So I am going to keep my head down and get through these busy days as gracefully as I can. Long working hours and tight deadlines at work often affect my overall diet and fitness regime. I end up skipping an important meal, or I will snack on something I regret. And the one thing which matters the most and suffers the worst is my cherished 8 hours…

Sparkle #122: Dr. Seuss Quotes

Happy Monday bright people! I am back after another week of traveling, and cannot wait to share vignettes and stories from my trip with you. Travel last week was focused on learning and development, as I took time off from work to attend a soft skills training. The training was geared towards introspection and cultivating awareness of different personality types – our own as well as others. My top takeaways from the sessions – be mindful, listen more, respect time and do more of what makes you happy! But let’s save more on this for another post and get back to sparkly Mondays on the blog! I am feeling super charged…

Sparkle #114: Healthy Living Illustrations

Happy Monday lovelies! This week on the blog we are celebrating illustration art, which means I will be sharing some of my favorite illustrations from different categories with you through the week. I have always been obsessed with good art and design, and illustrations are a personal favorite. Illustration art accompanies some form of text and is used to provide a visual aid to whatever you are reading. Collecting illustrated artwork from older books and magazines is an interesting hobby, and has been gaining popularity in recent times. I personally feel that illustrations are charming, whimsical and artistic at the same time. Older illustrations remind me of…
