Things that define my daughter
Things that
define my daughter

The second of my three daughters,
is an absolutely passionate little thing. She is a crazy passion driven living
thing and is an absolute art freak.
My daughter just freaks out when
it comes to any art form, may it be dance, drama or any other form of
performing arts, may it be fine arts in the form of painting and drawing or may
it be the absolutely brilliant filed of art and design.
As a parent, I wanted her to
pursue her higher education in the science stream and had accordingly put her
in for the coaching to pursue engineering as a career. However, quite late into
her foray into this field, she was quite bold in coming and telling me one day
that she would like to shun the regular norms of education and would like to
pursue designing as her career. And I am proud of myself who along with my
wife, decided that we should let her follow her passion.
When I talk about her, she is a
bundle of talent. She is a brilliant dancer, be it in any form. She is good at
western numbers and equally amazing when she pursued her skills in the
traditional Indian dance forms too. She is an absolute gem of a singer and has
the ability to adapt to any pitch of voices put across to her. And her skill in
picking up the art of playing musical instruments without even any formal
training is something which is unbelievable.
Her skill in fine art forms is
something which we noticed at her young age and we allowed her to hone her
skills in it. Her drawings and paintings just come to life and feel as if they
are talking to us.
Her aptitude and skill in designing
is something which was till now hidden and suddenly come to fore. It was not a
surprise to me when she chose product and industrial designing as a course for
her career.
My daughter is absolutely
passionate about her work, and it’s not just one thing that makes her, but it
is a multitude of talent filled in her. My daughter is somebody, who can’t be
limited by one label.

Journey from OR to AND for my daughter
Journey from OR to AND for my daughter
When my eldest daughter decided
to pursue commerce stream for her higher studies and become a CA, the
profession, I was practicing, honestly, I was elated. However, I warned her
that it is one course which requires utmost dedication and hard work and total
cut off from all social activities. I said this because I knew my daughter very
well, to be a very chirpy, one who would not like to sit at one place for long,
and one who had always been addicted to the social media.
My daughter had always had the
passion for writing, and I knew that she had always dreamt of becoming an
author or a writer. To be honest, I was not very sure of the comforts of a
writer till such time the person is established and hence I was more than
relieved when she decided to pursue this professional course.
However, I am so happy that she
proved me wrong. She has conveniently adopted both her passion and her career
to perfection. She is a brilliant and studious child and has so well divided
and distributed her time for her studies so that she gets enough time to follow
her passion too.
She writes blogs on various
subjects, including reviews on products and services and her innovative writing
skills have been aptly recognized by the companies whose products she has
reviewed. However, she has ensured that these activities of hers have in no way
affected her studies and till now she has cleared her examinations with flying

Whenever I look at my daughter, I
feel proud that how my daughter took charge of her life. I feel proud that she
made a choice, and not a compromise.  I
am thrilled that she refused to choose one thing or the other, and instead
followed her heart.

My problems with pimples and its effect on my everyday life
My problems with
pimples and its effect on my everyday life

Pimples are a real dampener when we think of
our teenage days and it is something which really dampens our self-esteem and
rattles our confidence.

But believe me, contrary to what most guys
think, pimples don’t stop popping up when your voice finishes changing.  It’s something which keeps haunting you for
your life.

Tried researching on the reasons for the same
and realized that raging hormones may be the reason during our teen years, but
other factors such as humidity, stress, heavy sweating, or the use of steroids
cause the irritating red bumps now that I have grown up.

It’s really so irritating that even if I try
to follow a perfect personal hygiene and diet, I still see flare-ups. People
advise me to wash my face regularly but in fact, washing my face too much causes
acne to get worse.
These breakouts come just out of the blue and
sometimes these funky finger warts make me feel like everyone’s staring at me.
And when my oily complexion shines out of control, it becomes really
frustrating and embarrassing.
The worst part is that when these attacks
come, they come in varieties, whether it is characterized by whiteheads,
blackheads, and, more frequently, pus-filled pimples. How irritating it feels
that it usually develops in the central area of the cheeks and on the forehead,
the part which is absolutely visible and having no chance to hide.

So when it happens, all the big talks about it
being caused by a hormone imbalance or a hypersensitivity to the robust
hormonal activity going on the body during this time feels like crap.
When these pimples come, it also attracts a
plethora of advisers too that come in plenty. I get advices to use various
acids in a cream, lotion or gel, depending upon the source of advice, which
according to them will do the trick, i.e. help me get rid of my depressed state
of mind. I have honestly tried almost everything, regularly purchasing several
different products. I have even tried rotating them for usage. But believe me,
at the start, my skin responds favorably, and then all of a sudden these
products stop working, be it the cream, the lotion or the gel.

Yeah, of course, I have even tried using two
or three products at a time together and also trying to switch off, using one
for a couple of months and then changing till I finally get fed up and
reconcile to the fact that these breakouts can never be controlled.

The Garnier Neem Face Wash seems to be
blessing perhaps.
I would not mind trying out this product for
sure as I have heard that it is enriched with the natural ingredients like the
Neem Leaf Extract and Tea Tree Oil, which have the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal
qualities which seems to work with its three purifying actions, i.e. fighting
germs, deep cleaning pores to remove impurities caused by pollution and washing
way excess oil which attracts dirt, germs and bacteria.
Let me be honest that if this amazing product
helps me to regain my self esteem, believe me, it would be God-sent miracle for
