Surf it All, Surf it fast

Cricket is not just a sports in India, it’s an addiction. We may not even play cricket for months but would never leave our Television sets when India is playing. We want India to win every match and a loss just decreases our energy by a significant amount. We remember the stats of the player better than our subjects. The tough dads even don’t scold for sitting in front of Television for hours because they are doing the same thing. It’s the time when mothers are praying for blessing for someone else than their children. India is a place to visit during World Cup just to see the enthusiasm we have for this sport.

It’s fun to watch a game live sitting in the stadium. The cheering of the crowd just thrills you and you wait patiently for the batsman to hit the ball for once to where you are seated. We even do crazy things to catch the attention of the cameraman and get on Television. It’s a totally different experience to sit along with other cricket enthusiast and just cheer your team on top of your voice.

But, the ticket costs in stadium are high because we just love cricket and don’t wish to miss it. Even, not everyone can travel to the other corners of the country to watch matches. So we enjoy the live telecast at our homes. The only loss is there to office going professionals. They can’t take leave every time there is a match and don’t have big Televisions installed to watch it. But we still wish to watch it and do some web surfing and find a link for live buffering in our laptops. We watch matches while we are at offices. This only helps if you have a personal cubicle or else you have to answer your boss. But, this doesn’t stop us. We found a way out and the laptop screen displays the coding page we are supposed to be working on. The match is running on our smartphones. No one peeps to that small screen and you can enjoy the match.

The only problem is the speed of internet on our mobiles. First, it is tough to find a link which will give live buffer and if found then the buffer speed is slow. We always search out for something which can help us out in this. Recently, a new mobile browser, UC browser was launched. It is a fast browser which has got dedicated fast buffering for cricket lovers. It is free and easily available at the app store. The browser loads pages faster and is easy to use. It is just a gift for cricket lovers. Their tagline aptly defines them, Surf it All! Surf it fast.

Honey Diet


A healthy toned body is the wish of every human. Some work hard in Gyms and outdoor activities and some leave it to be taken care of later. It’s on special occasions like date, marriage or whenever you are the center of attraction that you wish to have been in shape. Just months before these occasions we try hard to get as much in shape as we can. Some try physical and everyone on balanced healthy diets.

The problem arises when people have just one aim of going slim and go on crash diets. Crash diet is to restrict the calorie intake of your body to a certain amount which is much lesser than your regular intake. It works in most cases but the body struggles hard to sudden decrease in calories and it leaves negative impact. It might take a little long but being on a healthy balanced diet will always give better results. People on crash diet generally gain more weight once they are off the charts.

Losing weight isn’t easy or else there wouldn’t have been so many people struggling for it.  Physical exercise and weight training do help but your diet plays the most important role. You need to intake sufficient energy to the hard work you are doing and meanwhile analyze that you don’t take excess of it. It should also be in balanced proportions of fat, fiber, protein, etc. Increasing the green in your diet always helps. Having raw fruits or even juices provide energy and decrease the fat intake.

The biggest problem for us is to control our taste buds. A piece of cake and we would crave to have it. Anything sweet is generally liked by most but it is the prime reason for the obesity. It’s hard to get control of heart at that moment and it ruins all the plans. One of the easy ways out is to find healthy substitute of them.

Honey is a very close substitute of sugar. It is rich in fructose and is used by athletes in their diet. Honey is said to curb the desire of sugar cravings which itself solves half of the problems. One can cut out sugar from their diet by replacing it with honey. A big spoon full of honey with hot water before bed and it helps to burn fat while you sleep. You fulfill your desire of eating sweet food and supplement the body with fat fighting ingredients. On a simple honey diet one could lose up to 3lbs per week. The best thing is honey is delicious and doesn’t require anything to enhance its taste.


The only problem today is to get good quality of honey. Honey is one of the most adulterated food and it then loses its nutritional values. You can only trust few brands and Dabur is one of them. Dabur is one of the most reputed brand in India and I trust it. They have even started a Honey Diet campaign. Visit to know more - http://www.daburhoney.com/

Buddy Parenting


Parents if behave like buddies, it eases the life. You have nothing to hide and can freely share your thoughts, emotions and even your fears. Our generation had some real tough parents but time has been changing ever since. Parents are understanding the importance of letting go of the control over their kids. They understand that it will just make them rebellion and they want to be more close to them. However, there are some parents who felt this a long time ago and they are the best buddy of their kids.

I am a bike lover and own an avenger. Being a part of Bajaj Avenger Club – Bangalore (BAC – Bangalore), I often go with ride with other Avenger owners. There are a very few female bikers but luckily our club has a significant count. It was amazing to see the bond of a mother and daughter on one such ride.

We had 18 avengers running on the road on a straight line. It was beautiful. Mostly, all of them were riding solo but some had brought their lovers along. We had 3 female bikers and one of them brought her mother along. An elderly lady with a bandana on her head with lose jeans and full of energy. She looked prettier than any girl riding with us. For me, it was shocking for someone so elderly to accompany for a bike ride but it was very cool. Supporting a girl to ride a cruiser bike and join a club but something even better is, to accompany her on one.

Riding after 200kms one way, we were all tired. Riders were shifting left and right to give some peace to their bottoms and pillions were having even harder times.  When we got off, most of us had the tired look but she was still charged. She loved to ride with her daughter and that could be seen in her smile. She was very proud of her.

While we were resting and having our lunch at open place near the countryside, people used to turn back and look at so many bikes with people all geared up. Everyone seems to admire a biker in her/his costume. A bus with local passengers passed by and some boys sitting near the window started whistling. They were not whistling at the girls but just expressing the happiness of finding a biker club nearby. We just waved hands and suddenly heard a loud whistle from our side. The lady was whistling and I don’t think anyone in our group could have been so loud. Each one of us looked at each other while the girl hugged her mother. We knew, that she had ruled on this trip. She made it a memorable one.


The daughter and mother were a perfect team with their avenger. They are in the middle of the photograph below. 



The same bonding of love between parents and kids is the initiative taken by Kellogg's.
