The Saturday Night Market: An out of box experience

Arpora night market is a ‘must visit’ in Goa. It is a great place & is a fun way to pass several hours. It has many number of food stalls, live music, a cosmopolitan crowd and lots of stalls offering you a variety of stuff from fancy dresses and trinkets to articles for home decoration- the night market at Arpora seems to come out of the Arabian nights. The market has a lot of stalls selling similar goods, so shop around for the best prices; be prepared to haggle for a good deal. The place is worth revisiting.

Happy Photography Day: History of Photography 

The World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. On August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”. Photography has the ability to tell stories and inspire people. It has changed the way we see the world and gave us the ability to share our perception on the world around us. Thank you WordPress for being the best medium to share our creativity. And Thank you photography for helping me in getting hundreds of friends across the world without any barriers..

Happy Mother’s Day: Story & Quotes

To the best mother in the universe: Happy Mother’s Day! You deserve all the love, care and support that you’ve lovingly given every day of my life. I love you!

A Small Motivational Story for all of you: Paid in Full

A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

For cutting the grass: $5.00

For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00

For going to the store for you: $.50

Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25

Taking out the garbage: $1.00

For getting a good report card: $5.00

For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00

Total owed: $14.75

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he’d written on, and this is what she wrote:

For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me: No Charge

For all the nights that I’ve sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you: No Charge

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you’ve caused through the years: No Charge

For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead: No Charge

For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose: No Charge

Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is: No Charge.

When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said, “Mom, I sure do love you.” And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: “PAID IN FULL”.

Lessons: You will never know your parents worth till you become a parent. Be a giver  not an acquirer, especially with your parents. there is a lot to give, besides money. BECAUSE  MONEY IS THE WORST WAYOF MEASURING HAPPINESS…

Wedding Diaries of My Brother: Sangeet Trailer

Everyone thinks about serious rituals and customs when it comes to an Indian Wedding. Yes, of course it is filled with so many rituals, customs and traditions. In addition to that there are also several fun filled activities involved. Though people in India regard marriage more as a religious affair, the elements of fun and frolic are also added into it, to make this emotional affair, somewhat light and amusing. Sangeet is designed in such a way that all the guests attending the event will be entertained. All the pre wedding ceremonies, haldi, sangeet and mehendi are filled with entertainment. Sangeet is all about dance and music. It is one of the most enjoyable ceremonies before the wedding. Sangeet ceremony is held few days before mehendi ceremony and comes as a time for joy and fun amidst the hectic hustling bustling activities before marriage.

My elder brother’s wedding celebrations started on 26th March and it was a 5 day event. Well!! How did we celebrate Sangeet? There were about 22 Performances with 81 Performers which includes Mythological(Mahabharata) Skits. 60+ Gents and under 16 girls competition, Dubsmashes, Ghazals, shaheri, Video Wishes, Speeches and the electrifying DJ…
