To forgive & feel, is to be human

The noblest revenge is to forgive

-Thomas Fuller

How many people are there, against whom you hold grudges? Grudges, hatred are all slow killers for your own self. People make mistakes, you make mistakes. It is the best for everyone to forgive and move on. Continue reading To forgive & feel, is to be human

Today we have a guest who is an engineer & also a passionate photographer or traveller, from a place I have yet to explore. He is from Pune, India.

Name: Dinesh Kumar
Location: Pune, India
He says…
Someone has said “an engineer went on a road trip and a photographer returned” . I don’t know whether I’m eligible to call myself a photographer or not but I have got addicted to traveling and photography after my First Himalayan trek to Chanderkhani pass last year. I started capturing everything that surrounds me. my village river never looked that beautiful to me. may be I have never looked into it in that way.
I had always a desire to explore the unexplored but if you are born in a middle-class Indian family then traveling is not considered as a hobby. its a summer vacation with your family only. but later when I joined my job at Tata motors Limited, Pune, I started again from where I had left. but this time it was western ghats of Maharastra, not Himalayan. in every weekend I packed my bags started exploring different places of western ghats. then I thought why not to share my travel stories with the photos to rest of the world. that’s when my website came into existence. every weekend I used to travel a new place and uploaded the photo blogs on my website. days passed by and I kept falling into traveling and photography.
It was summer 2017 and I was planning a long summer trip. after going through a lot of travel blogs I could find so many organizations arranging Leh Ladakh, Himachal, Coorg trips,  which are crowded already. but deep inside I was in search of a place where I could connect to my soul. a place which is underrated yet beautiful. I wanted to travel on my own, I wanted to go where my hearts says. and I started packing my backpack for Meghalaya- Scotland of East. Adobe on clouds.
I traveled more than 700 km in just 4 days and honestly, that wasn’t enough. Starting from east of the mountain range to west, then to southwest and finishing up east. I started as early as a 5’o clock in the morning and called a day at 8’o clock in the night. My fingers lost senses, the foot was sore and my back ached after such long drives. My backpack was too heavy and dragged me down. Was I tired? Did not know. Was I exhausted? Did not matter, many more questions filled my mind, but the answer was always the same: I knew I am alive doing this.
Here are some of his breathtaking photographs!

Why blogging isn’t as easy as you think

Blogging isn’t as easy as you think. Writing is not everyone’s cup of tea and that too writing on a regular basis to keep the audience engaged. This is an appreciation post to all my fellow blogger friends, my followers and non-bloggers to tell them what hard work a blog demands. Continue reading Why blogging isn’t as easy as you think

Why your blog SHOULD have a subscription pop-up

It can be difficult for people to find a way how to follow your blog and losing people interested in reading your blog is not something you can afford. Although you can customize a follow button in the side bar of the blog, it can still go unseen. A pop-up should be up on your blog after the viewer has spent around 5 seconds. I use MailChimp to organize my pop-up. Keep the pop-up minimalistic, not loaded with information or pushing in about the blog. Make the viewer comfortable knowing that he or she has a choice of either accepting or rejecting the subscription. Having a choice works in a positive way.

DabbaMeal ( Tiffin Service Provider) : Review

DabbaMeal serves tiffin services in Noida & Indirapuram. You can check it out on Zomato. It’s located in Sector-62, Noida with a meal for two costing just around Rs.200. It’s open from 7:30 am to 11 pm.
I tried the Non-veg Deluxe Dabba and a vegetarian rice box from their menu which is 14 days cyclic. There are separate cooks for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.

The vegetarian rice box was delicious and the quantity was more than enough for one person. The rice, perfectly cooked and not too oily. It was cooked with a bunch of fresh vegetables like capsicum, onion, sauteed peppers, paapad, pineapples, jalapenos and even paneer. Tastes like a fresh farmhouse!

The non-veg Deluxe Dabba comes with different varieties of chicken on different days. I had the Amritsari chicken, which I found to be a little sweet but I guess that’s just the thing about it being Amritsari. Also, there was rice, salad, Gulab Jamun and a vegetarian dish that can be either dal or chhole. Everything was quite light to eat, a kind of food that you can eat on a daily basis without getting any heavy feeling in your stomach.

The prices are pretty affordable for a common man, so I suggest that the next time you’re hungry and looking for a Dabba to hog on! Place an order with DabbaMeal.
