Prabakaran and Samantha were all excited to get back to Pondicherry. Anita was planning for surprises online that she could offer her grandparents on the eve of their 50th wedding anniversary. Kevin joined in giving his choices and opinions over the planning of a surprise.

Elsewhere, back at Pondicherry Geetha and Shankar were excited to hear that their son and daughter-in-law were making their journey back. Geetha, who was in her early 70’s had planned to go for local Sunday market shopping to grab all the required groceries and itineraries her son liked so that she could do it all by herself before he could come. There was that bit of joy and happiness in her over the return of her son.

A day to go for their 50th anniversary, Geetha was at the kitchen making coffee for Shankar as she was speaking about some old memories that she had about their early days of marriage. That’s when she heard the door bell. Shankar who was sitting in the hall reading newspaper made his way to the main door and opened it, Geetha came from behind. They were wondering who this young Indian looking girl and a foreign guy were.

“Thatha, Namaste” Said Kevin, and  Anitha followed ‘Namaste Thatha, paati’.
Geetha and Shankar were so happy to see Anita, Prabakarn and Samantha followed their way and took blessings from the elder couple before stepping inside.

Geetha and Shankar took over and ensure that the two couples settled down with time. She made coffee and breakfast for all as Samantha helped her mother-in-law.
Following their breakfast, Anita and Kevin made their way out into the city, while Samantha was busy having long talks with her mother in law.
Prabakaran joined his dad who was busy watching a game of Cricket.


Being a foodie is a great experience, it also means that it becomes a difficult task to keep our taste buds away from yummy food every time we encounter it. There are moments when we really wait for a weekend to get over only to rush to our favorite restaurant to hog a plate or two of one particular dish we have been craving for the whole week. There are moments, when midweek tiredness gobbles all our energy about waiting at the restaurant or we have to travel over the weekend. This leaves our taste buds waiting. 

How I really wished there could be a kiosk, where I could go and get my favorite dish (cooked), just ready and hot enough for me to consume directly. How I really wished to avoid waiting gazing at the face of other enjoying their meal while I jealously look at them cursing at the waiter for making it late. Well, I'm glad there is a solution now....  With Frshly, your gastronomical delights have been made to simplify.

Frshly is a first of a kind automated retail market place, where common man can have access to their choice of dishes from leading food chains served to them at a kiosk installed at common places such as IT Parks, Railway stations, Airports and leading Malls. 


     To Start, I feel glad in letting my readers know the fact that I'm into the field of Clinical research, a field I love the most. I was waiting for long to graduate and to start my job. Here it is now, been three months and I stand at the position of a Pharmaco Kinetic Investigator, where I deal with BABE (Bio Availability and Bio Equivalence) studies in human subjects which we conduct at our research lab.

In lieu to my pending poetry for the month, here it is "The B-A-B-E Poem"

He was a test sample drug,
While, She was a reference drug,
They met at the research lab
Placed next to each other on the dosing slab

Based on randomization schedule,
they were  individually dosed to the healthful.
Despite all research ethics and blinding,
They were ready for serum binding

Just as their concentrations were at prime,
samples of blood were drawn at scheduled time
They braved the serum sample separation
to reach the bio analysis station

Their pharmaco kinetic parameters matched
so perfectly at every time point, that they overlapped.
The investigators soon declared them one,
ready to safely heal humans on a long run.

     Our Lives today have become a lot hectic, many people have lost the track of sunrise and sunset while they look to chase money and dreams on daily basis. Sadly, back home, many miss to take care of their health. Our sedentary life style has affected us in such a way that most of us today are a victim of life style diseases such as obesity, hypertension and diabetes, along with each of these diseases comes risk of cardiac effects such as atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries due to fat deposition) , Coronary heart disease (or Ischemic heart disease) and even risk of heat attack,leaving behind a serious threat to our own life.

    Earlier, I was a victim of being dragged into this sedentary lifestyle,  my diet was untimely, and irregular. It had more carbohydrates and less proteins, my stress levels were high, my activities were limited and I noticed that my wieght kept increasing, which got me into depression of not being able to take care of my self. It was a long battle with my own self, till I finally found a solution to take care of my own self and ensure I have a good mental and physical workout every day.

I'm sure this problem is something that many people face today, and what we fail to see is that the problem is within us, we lag the motivation and dedication to take care of our own self. That driving force that is needed for us to stay healthy remains missing.

The mantra to most of these daily problems remains in  staying active at work, eating better and healthy food, and being happy, away from tensions.

Staying active at work remains a major challenge with most of us being seated for hours together, right in front of the computer. I faced the same problem, and the solution to this was involving myself in enough ground work and moving up and down the stairs instead of using the lift. It was that inner motivation, that dragged me to do my own work, from running around to take print outs or scan documents, from moving down for a cup of coffee or gathering things for a presentation. I do my own work instead of calling on office boys for it. I even took this to the next level, that I stopped using the intercom and started going directly to the person I wanted to meet. This ensure that I stayed active and got me immediate solutions to my own needs. To wrap up my day, I use public transport (bus and train) to make my way back home, that involves enough walking and exercise.

Being happy is the most important mantra for a long life. Every one today has stress, I feel the stress as well on daily basis; but, I leave my tensions once I leave my office. As far as possible, I ensure that I don't reflect my tensions/ stress in any means. I move around joking with people, playing a few pranks and what not, that not only diverts myself from tension, but,keeps me happy throughout the day. Above all this remains the fact that I love my work, that makes me enjoy what I do and remain stress free .

Eating healthy and better is a major aspect in life's pyramid. I'm someone who lives to eat healthy, instead of being forced to eat to live healthy. I have started planning my meals with proper proportion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, that ensures good digestion and enough energy to last the day. Timely eating remains a little concern, but I mostly ensure that I eat my lunch within the provided time. I use the right quality and choice of oil in my food that makes it taste better and stays healthy for me.

Using the right choice of  oil while cooking can also help us ensure that we stay active, eat better and stay happy. Saffola oils over the years have been promoting the need for a healthy oil for a healthy heart. Saffola oil does not only provide a good source of PUFA (poly unsaturated fatty acids, known to reduce risk of heart diseases) but, also has enough source of essential vitamins like Vitamin A,D,E and K, that keeps us healthy. Vitamin E of such oils is what has anti oxidant properties that ensures that stress doesn't hit our health.

Me and my family have switched over to Saffola and we have seen a good change in our daily life along with the small steps (chhote kadam) we take at work, diet and fun we have at daily basis. I even happened to check my healthy life score on and it was indeed healthy, its your turn now to lead a healthy life. Switch over to a healthy oil and live a healthy life.
