#IndvsPak - It's Much More Than Just A Match



Cricket,
Religion In India,
Followed By All.
Castes And Creeds,
Do Not Differentiate At All.

India,
Where Cricket Is Worship,
Sachin Tendulkar Is God.

Cricket,
India vs Pakistan,
Its Not Just Match,
Its Much More.

The Day Is Never The Same,
With #IndvsPak,
There Is New Spark,
The Day Carries New Charm.

Everyone Follows Their Lucky Rituals,
Wearing Same T-shirt Of Last Win,
Eating Same Food,
Not Leaving TV Screen For A Minute,
Or Even Not Watching The Match.

Damn, Man If I See Match, India Looses.
I Want India's Win,
So,
Keep Updating Me Scores,
I Won't Watch It.

True Love Of Indian,
A Sense Of Patriotism,
A Feel Of Pride,
A Moment Of Excitement.

Billions Of Heart,
Chants Same Words,
Only India India Is Heard.

Today,
Many At Eden Gardens,
Many More In Front Of TV Screens,
Are Wishing For India's Win.

Be It Hindu,  Muslim, Sikh Or Christian,
Today Only Cricket Is Their Religion.
Every Wicket Taken,
Every Run Earned,
By India,
Is Felt Deep.
Every Wicket Lost,
Creates A Big Grief.

People Shouting There Hearts Out,
Chanting India's Name,
Are Seekers Of India's Fame.
#INDvsPAK Is Not Just A Game.

Victory Matters More Than Anything Else,
Its A Battle With A Magical Spell,
Everyone Is So Influenced,
They Can't Take Loosing By Any Chance.

In Today's Match,
Its A Tails In The Toss,
India's Win Others Loss.

Dhoni With His Brigade,
Ready With Ball,
Start A Bowling Spree,
Ball Spins And Trolls.

Slow Runs,  Awesome
But Ye Dil Maange More,
Wicket Wicket Every Indian Heart Calls.

A Superb Catch By Pandya,
On Raina's Ball,
Starts Wicket Loss,
Which Ends With Total 5 Wickets Fall.

119 Was The Target,
India Have To Chase.
It Seems To Be A Easy Race.
Sharma And Dhawan Comes,
With Target In Mind,
But There Game Play Doesn't Seems Right.
With Every Wicket We Skip A Beat.

But Kohli And Yuvraj,
Patnering At No. 4,
We Can't Ask For More.
With Every Four,
We Demand A Six.

With Kohli's Six,
Game Result Was Fix.
But,
We Loss Yuvraj’s Wicket, 
And The Partnership Is Ruled Out.

Here's, 
Mahi Walking In,
With Bat In Hands,
Look,
Here Comes India's Winning Trend.

With Kohli's Virat 50,
And Dhoni’s Winning 6,
We Won The Match Without Any Twist.



#INDvsPAK Comes To An End,
Its 11-0, India's Win T20 Trend.

How Hard They Try,
History Repeats Everytime,
And We Realize Our Precious Wins,
And Here Celebration Begins..

पटाखे तो इन्डिया में ही फुटेंगे।।

Avalon By Sheth Builders

Buying a new home is probably one the most important decisions you will make. You would want to make the perfect choice so that you and your family can make the best of your new life in your new home. Comfort, convenience, and security go hand-in-hand with the happiness you deserve. If you’re a bit lost among the choices you’re presented with, here’s some help. Among the factors to keep in mind when you make your choice, are the various amenities that support a convenient, happy, healthy and pleasant residential experience. 

Here are some factors you shouldn’t miss out on when picking your dream home:

Safety and Security: The most precious elements of your life deserve to be worry free. Along with the people you love, the possessions and wealth need protection too. So that you can focus on the best things in your life, you need to ensure that all that you care for is safe and secure.

Transport: Whether you’re making your way to work, dropping your children off to school or heading out to relax over the weekend, convenient transport facilities will help you get out and get there as soon as soon as possible. 

Schools and Colleges: The best way to ensure a bright future for your children, is the convenient proximity to the best education institutions. The time they’ll save in a short journey to a long day at school will give them the freedom to play and absorb their lessons to the fullest.

Healthcare: The best living is accompanied with the best health. Your own and your family’s health should be at its best at all times and should something go wrong unexpectedly, professional healthcare should be as close as possible. 

Shopping: Frequent visits to supermarket or convenience store will be a regular task for every home. The closer these places are to your place the less troublesome it will be to stock your home with all it needs. 

Recreation: Whether it’s after a long day or a long week of work, school or homemaking you and your family can do with an extensive stretch of doing what makes you happy. You needn’t have to travel far for access to the best recreational facilities, it’s more enjoyable when the journey to them is brief.

Beauty: An everyday spectacle of the sunrise or sun set, the plumes of whimsical clouds, the lush greenery of rolling hills will not only calm your mind, it will make your home the place you will want to come back to no matter what. 

The next big question is, “Where, Oh where will I find this ideal access to blissful living?” It’s  really not that hard to find.

A Walk Through Mughal Garden - A Walk To Remember


Mughal Garden is surely a paradise on earth. This place is without any doubt a national treasure. Am still mesmerized with the beautiful garden.
 Its a beautiful garden where the view started with the Herbal Garden. Small boards planted on the ground to identify the different herbs alongside being cultivated. There are no further proofs required when declarations like "cure for cancer", "treats diabetes", "removes stress" etc are posted under the names of the plants in English and Hindi. The Tulsi (Basil) plants get a canopied little green house of white of their own. 

Glimpses Of Herbal Garden 

From the herbal garden, we move to the Bonsai Garden. Well maintained samples of Peepal, Neem, Banyan, Oranges and more in bonsai form. And it's an awesome site to find so many bonsai together. 

Glimpses Of Bonsai Garden


From Bonsai Garden our next destination was musical garden. Beautiful fountains dancing on patriotic music is just breathtaking. Few minutes around the beautiful garden make me realize all the sacrifices our armed forces make for our peaceful survival. And I feel proud to be a Army man's daughter. 

Here's a glimpse of beautiful musical garden. 

video

And finally we reach Main Mughal Garden. 

The presidential palace, the royal Rashtrapati Bhavan, looms in the background. But it is the magnificent garden that takes my breath away. Beautifully manicured, impeccable arrangement of plants, hedges and trees. Set on the sides of two water channels with their lotus fountains, it is a marvel of flora domestication. I was spellbound with the mesmerising beauty. The fountains, the flower beds, the well rounded trees, the riot of colors! It is awesomely pretty in the bright afternoon.

From the massive rectangular main garden, we move into the long rose garden. Mughal garden has more than 250 varieties of roses. 

From the long garden, we reach the circular garden. Bougainvillea and creepers territory. Easily over fifty different varieties. 

Hats off to Lutyens, the architect and Mustoe, the horticulturist, who conceived and executed this gem.

I really had a gala time during the walk through admist of beautiful vicinity. 

Cameras  are not allowed but we can use our smartphone to capture some floral beauty around me.

So here's few beautiful captured by me from beautiful Mughal Garden.
















\

























Panoroma View


Mughal Gardens opens just for one month from mid February to mid March. It's a walk through a beautiful vicinity where armed guards keep reminding you not to stop.  Entry is free so it's pretty crowded especially on weekends. 

But it's a must visit if you love being in arms of mother nature. 

Mesmerised Once Forever :)
