Traveling is passion>

There is nothing more fulfilling to me than the
>> smell of a new beach
>>the soundtrack of a new city
>> the traditions of an alternative culture
>>the flavors of a different cuisine, and 
>>the sound of an unfamiliar language. 

Its my Dream to travel Dubai.

So i have planned a cheap and best trip for couple to Dubai.

"Dubai's world class physical infrastructure has already established it as a major player in terms of trade, tourism and as the leading conference and exhibition venue in this part of the world."

I am very aware of the fact that I only have Rs 1 lakh to spend so I plan to make the best possible use of that money. Since I plan to travel from Delhi where I am based,  I looked up all possible options on Skyscanner. com.


Looking for the most economical option, I came up with this combination in September>

Cost for this Return ticket is 30,500 INR.(app.) for couple
Very reasonable price :)

Travel planning over, now I looked for a hotel>

Planning to stay in a centrally located , comfortable place (ideally with breakfast included )and good value for money, I  choose the Summerland Motel,Al Khan area, Sharjah Waterfront, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (cheap and good location)

Skyscanner -helping me again and by comparing prices and looking for the best deal, I was very pleased to find this option for couple, 5 nights including taxes and fees. Best of all, it has a complimentary breakfast as well.:)
The very special deal that I managed, all thanks to skyscanner.com.

That would mean INR 17, 328 taking up my total expenditure to :

INR 47900 (app.) (30,500+17,328)

With travel and hotel expenses that leaves me with INR 52,000  (app.).

Hotel planning over, now I looked for a Car>

Skyscanner -helping me again and by comparing prices and looking for the best deal, I was very pleased to find this option for 5 days including taxes and fees. 
The very special deal that I managed, all thanks to skyscanner.com.

That would mean INR 5,995 taking up my total expenditure to :

INR 53900 (app.) (30,500+17,328+5,995)

With travel ,car and hotel expenses that leaves me with INR 46,000  (app.).

From this point, I've decided to simplify it -

I plan to use around INR 20,000 to cover my shopping and will arrange to buy the tickets for museums, galleries, food  and anything over and above the allocated amount of Rs.1 lakh on my own.
With travel ,car,shopping and hotel etc. expenses that leaves me with INR 26,000  (app.).

As I come to the end of this blog post, I would like to say  'Thank you' to Blogadda as well as Skyscanner for providing me this great platform to fulfill my dream to visit Dubai by spending just 70,000 INR (app.) for couple.
Travel Smart :D

One has to be friendly but also fair, frank and flexible. Employ the Four Fs in relationships. Educate each other about discipline. Discipline is not against freedom; it harnesses freedom. Just like the banks of the river help the river to flow towards the ocean. Young people may feel discipline is snatching their freedom. This is not true. Bringing up children involves education. Don't think that they will immediately understand. It takes time but you should be an empowering parent.
The world has both the right and wrong modes operating. Good parenting is teaching them to take the good and leave the bad. All parents are not right all the time; their intention may be good but possibly parents may do more harm to children if they encourage division; that would create conflict and hence pain. So, parents' intention may be good but they also have to inwardly cleanse themselves.Use the power of love and then you will know how to deal with old people. Yes, as they get old they behave like children. Give them love and understanding. Learn to enjoy dealing with them. They are also going through transition. Be committed and compassionate then you will get the right mode to help them. "He gives not the best, who gives the most but he gives the most who gives the best". Learn to give your best. Be the giver and then that giving itself enhances the quality of life. What is wrong if you pamper your parents? After all it is their second childhood. Don't you pamper your children? Don't use too much of logic but just shower love.Love is the only way to win heart of any person at any age so love your self and love others to live better life

9 quotes that will change the way you think

In your quiet moments, what do you think about?  How far you’ve come, or how far you have to go?  Your strengths, or your weaknesses?  The best that might happen, or the worst that might come to be?  In your quiet moments, pay attention to your thoughts.  Because maybe, just maybe, the only thing that needs to shift in order for you to experience more happiness, more love, and more vitality, is your way of thinking
  1. Anyone can come into your life and say how much they love you.  It takes someone really special to stay in your life and show how much they love you.
  2. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie.  Don’t save it for a special occasion; today is special.
  3. Love and appreciate your parents.  We are often so busy growing up, we forget they are also growing old.
  4. When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.
  5. Learn to love yourself first, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you.
  6. When someone tells you, “You’ve changed,” it might simply be because you’ve stopped living your life their way.
  7. Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right.
  8. Be happy.  Be yourself.  If others don’t like it, then let them be.  Happiness is a choice.  Life isn’t about pleasing everybody
  9. When you’re up, your friends know who you are.  When you’re down, you know who your friends so live every moment and enjoy life

Women are important in our society. Every woman has her own job or duty in this 
modern society in which men are still the 'strongest gender';. We can´t forget that 
women´s life is a lot more complicated than a man´s life. A woman has to take care of 
her own personal life and if she is a mother , she has to take care also about her 
children´s life too. Marriaged women have lots of worries and believe it or not , they 
carry out a more stressfull life than marriaged men. 

Several times in my life I have heard commentaries about the lack of importance of 
women. I am personally against these kind of commentaries. In my life the most 
important person I remember is my mother. She is a professional also , but besides her 

profession , she always took good...Women have more strength and will power than men overall i can say girl is like a  pearl ,let her swirl All human  society is present because of women .Though change is still in the air, there's no doubt that men and women's roles have become less strictly defined, and many families have made the male and female roles more egalitarian when it comes to jobs, housework and childcare.

Life Hacks to make your life easier

Visit BlogAdda.com to discover Indian blogs
If you have a job, keep it>>
The job market is tough. It's hard for everyone to find jobs these days. If you're lucky enough to get a job, even if you don't like the job, stick it out. Try your hardest not to job hop. No matter what age you are, it never looks good. Even if your job isn't all that wonderful, remember that you are getting paid. Even if your paycheck isn't as much as you'd like it to be, some money is better than no money.

Save your money>>
 By saving money, you don't have to be cheap or save on every little thing. Little trips to Walgreen's or Target add up. Frequenting the vending machines or going into the gas station add up. Eating out twice a week adds up. Buy groceries instead of eating out. Use your debit card to pay for gas so you don't have to go in. Even if you're going clothes shopping, think about things that you really need and that you will really wear.

  1. Keep your room clean>>
  2. Some people are just messy, they like things that way but you'd be surprised how much less stressed you feel when your room is clean. Give everything a place. A place for your keys, your shoes, your cell phone, etc. Instead of just plopping stuff down and seeing where it lands, it will make your day easier if you know exactly where your keys are and so on. It should only take about 5 minutes to make your bed, a few seconds to pick up any dirty clothes, a minute or so to put away clean clothes, and just a little bit of time to round up any trash. This also goes for any other room in the house, but pick up after yourself. If everyone does just a little bit, it'll be a lot easier to keep everything together. It's not that hard to put your dirty dishes in the sink or to clean the shower when you're finished. The same goes for your vehicle as well.
  3. Always use your time wisely. If you're at school, don't just sit and stare at the computer or talk to your friends, get something done. If you're at work, don't just stand around and talk, get something done. Even if you only have 15 minutes to work on something, that's 15 minutes you're closer to being finished.

                                    "ZEST IS BEST "

We should live every moment of life and have a 'zest' for living (same like the movie : kal ho naa ho).We should learn from the past.even future is important for us
"the future is now",the most important task for us is " to live this day and this moment"of our life and should live this day/moment to the best of our ability.The past is dead.it is there to instruct us.We should learn lessons from past experiences.But the future begins now.we can improve a lot.life has to be lived.it is to be lived fully and with pleasure.we must have zest for living.Its the present that makes our life really 'worth living'.Life should be enjoyed.We should have confidence in god.then we should put on the spurs.we should " let the wild horse of life fly....over stones & hedges".it means one should have courage,determination &zest for living to face any eventualities in life.we should be prepared ' to break' our necks but we should move on"without fear"

"We should learn from the past.even future is important for us"



love for nature and natural surroundings is my passion i love to spend time with nature so i go daily for long walk in the park where i meet green plants flowers and grass i feel very happy after being close to them. god has given us so many things to enjoy we get so many things to spend our life and most important is sunlight in the morning which keeps us healthy and young s everybody should sit in front of sun in the morning for 5 minutes to get healthy body.

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.
"So live close to nature to get best" 

2---Music therapy

Music therapy is now an established health service similar to occupational therapy and physical therapy. Music therapists use music to facilitate changes that are non-musical in nature. The use of music for those with arthritis provides opportunity for pain relief, anxiety and stress reduction and positive changes in both mood and emotional behavior music is an instant tool to forget all your pressures and sadness                                      


I can spend hours on internet because it is a small world which provides you everything you want.
The internet has played a very important role in our daily lives because of the advantages it brings. Firstly, it makes our work a lot easier. Students can find information for their studies and then type it out on their computer, rather than write it out on a piece of paper. This has helped them save a lot of time.

Secondly, we are able to find out more about what is happening in the world. Because people all over the world is using the internet, we can get updated on news like politics, natural disasters, and even celebrity gossip. It has been predicted that newspapers will no longer be used in the near future, because the internet is much more efficient.


Family bond,family support is very necessary for an individual growth in the society because family support gives us confidence to fight al odds of life  Family is like a pillar on which individual personality stands my zest is my family we love each other and support in every moment If one has a support he can face any problem                                           


A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.TRAVEL to see whole world is my zest but we need lots of money soi plan travel whenever i have time and money travelling with your loved ones makes you more understandable and close the world is abook and those who do not travel read only a page.
