Sharing my experience with another wonderful product from Ethicare Remedies.

Ethicare Remedies Epiplus Lotion Sensitive Skin Cleanser

I have a very sensitive skin and it becomes worst with summers. Over fragrant soaps and bodywash make my skin suffer alot. Though I have a few which suits my skin a bit,  but search for the best was always on until I start using Epiplus Lotion.

Texture :
Epiplus Lotion is white in colour and creamy in consistency with no fragrance ( a big relief for my skin)

My Experience :
Epiplus Lotion has absolutely no fragrance and don't foam at all, proving the claims of being fragrance, soap and SLES free stands true. It effectively remove every trace of dirt and sweat and get cleans easily from the body, as it's don't foam at all I end up using more than required once but learnt exact requirement later. As it doesn't foam, it doesn't removes oil from skin but as I don't have much oily skin, I felt its good as I don't have to use moisturizer after bath. It makes skin feel smooth and soft and helps me in avoiding dry and parched skin(Without using moisturizer, feels like a bliss)
Its a must have for sensitive, normal and mild oily skin but if you have very oily skin it may not be able to satisfy you (but still you never know, so give it a try and experience yourself)

Book Review : My Tarot Something Else By Nisha Mehta


My Tarot Something Else 

Author : Nisha Mehta
Subject  : Tarot
Publisher : Patridge India 

Book's Epigram & My Critique : I have heard of Tarot card reading, where a deck of multiple imaged cards answer your queries. We always sometime in our life span have tried to know about our destiny when we had been through bad or difficult times. However, I always thought to know what these card are and how do a Tarot card reader answer the queries seeing these images, such type of multiple queries were always in my mind that fascinated me to read this book.

Few things that I really liked about the author, Nisha Mehta is, that she tried to explain the card reading in a very simple and clear way. Rather than talking much about the subject, author comes to the point quickly and describes the Tarot card break ups and their meaning in easy words. She classifies the cards and then reveal their meanings (for example – The major arcana, the minor arcana, wands, pentacles, cups, swords etc.)

Author has made a sincere efforts to put her knowledge in simple words in the form of a book, where she has not only described the cards but also suggested how to tackle these cards, which is a very important part. The person who focuses on reading and understanding these cards often forgets that these cards hold some energy that needs to release after attending every session, such type of minute information which is actually very important for a Tarot reader has been defined very well. Overall I found this book very useful for a person who wants to study Tarot and try it as a practice. The practitioner can get multiple information at one book and get to know practice basics as well. At the end, It's really a very good effort by Nisha Mehta and I congratulate her for writing book on such a rare topic that has helped the mass and a very few people know about.

Rating : 4.5/5

Best Buy : Amazon : Rs. 299/- Paperback, 
                                       Rs. 169/- Kindle

Movie Screening, - Exposé on abuse of temple elephants, ‘Gods in Shackles’

‘God in Shackles’, a critically acclaimed documentary exposing the abuse of Kerala’s captive elephants was screened for public at PVR Rivoli in New Delhi on Saturday. Smt. Maneka Gandhi, Union Cabinet Minister for Women & Child Development and an animal welfare activist who attended the screening was moved by the appalling evidences of elephant torture and trauma brought out by the documentary. She said, “Over 800 elephants have died in the last two years of beating and starvation in Kerala. To say that elephant is thriving in India, it’s not. There are less than 20,000 left, of which Kerala is killing as many as it possibly can. Begging elephants must get off the road. We must have elephant rescue centers. The Kerala Government has to take a decision now – to keep killing these endangered species or take action to rescue them.”



She added, “We have strong laws in place. Wildlife Act is a strong law but if Kerala Government chooses to ignore it, what can we do. It is because of the strong stance that the Atal Bihari Vajpayee led BJP Government took to rescue and rehabilitate bears that they are finally off the road.”

Maj. Gen. (Retd) Dr. R. M Kharb, Chairman, Animal Welfare Board of India and Mr. Vivek Menon, CEO, Wildlife Trust of India were also present for the screening.

"People are so blinded by greed and selfishness that they are unable to see the pain and suffering of another sentient and supremely intelligent animal.  Asian elephants are exploited all across India. They are tortured and traumatized in circuses and zoos, and worse yet by the temples under the guise of religion. How ironic it is to even think that Gods creations are tortured in temples, where people believe Gods live”, spoke Sangita Iyer, Director of the documentary at the screening.


Highlighting stories of elephant agony across the country, she added, “Aside from the barbaric torture inflicted to break their spirits, they are also psychologically and emotionally traumatized, as the cow elephants go insane when they are separated from their families. In Tamil Nadu, a baby elephant named Masini was ripped apart from her family in Mudumalai for a temple called Samayapuram with worst reputation. She was gifted by the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Ms. Jaylalitha, who says she loves elephants. If she truly loves elephants she should allow them to roam freely. In Rajasthan tormented elephants were found in the most atrocious conditions, they were being exploited for tourism. I applaud the Supreme Court of India for placing an immediate ban on using elephants in the sweltering heat of Rajasthan. In an era that has seen so much progression, it's time to ban use of animals, period. At the end of the day India's animal rights record is being tarnished in the international arena, and India certainly doesn't want to be like China, which has the worst animal and human rights records."


About Gods in Shackles

Gods in Shackles is a 92-minute documentary film that explores the use of Asian elephants in India’s cultural festivals and temples. It was nominated at the United Nations & Jacksonhole Film Festival in New York March 3rd, and has won six international film festival awards within the first three months in 2016.


The emotional story unfolds against a stunning backdrop in Kerala, Karnataka and Kolhapur, Maharashtra, India. To amplify the beat of this film, the team gathered approximately 200 hours of powerful footage. Gods in Shackles is a story that has never been told before.





The team followed the lives of four celebrity elephants for a year - three male festival elephants, and the only female temple elephant named Lakshmi, featured in this film. A fifth male elephant named “Sundar” who made international headlines has also been featured. Sundar gives hope to thousands of temple elephants across Asia. His story is covered from capture to his release into a wildlife sanctuary – the Bannerghatta Biological Park in Karnataka.

Gods in Shackles aims to touch the hearts of people and empower them with knowledge, hope and confidence that will propel them to take positive actions and protect the endangered Asian elephants.

More than twelve people, including Kerala’s most revered priest Akkeramon Kalidasan Battathirippad, Kerala’s beloved poet laureate, Smt. Sugadha Kumari, Karnataka's Presidential Award winner for Women Empowerment Smt. Suparna Ganguly, and world renowned elephant scientist, Dr. Raman Sukumar of the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, veterinarians, activists, animal welfare groups, and even owners and mahouts have been interviewed in an effort to provide balanced perspectives.

Gods in Shackles was produced within two years, and has been approved by the Central Board of Film Censorship certification, ready for public screening in India. Gods in Shackles was nominated by the prestigious International Elephant Film Festival at the United Nations General assembly and has won seven international film festival awards, including the Los Angeles Cinefest Award, Hollywood International Independent Documentary Film Festival Award, The IMPACT Docs – Award of Merit, Golden Award at the World Documentary Awards.

Tech Guide - Securing your system from viruses

A computer virus is a malware that, when executed, replicates by reproducing itself or infecting other programs by modifying them. Infecting computer programs can include as well, data files, or the boot sector of the hard drive. When this replication succeeds, the affected areas are then said to be "infected". 

Definition of computer virus is quite easy to understand but it's not the same with viruses. Once your system(computer /laptop/ mobile), it make all possible harm to your system and data. 


If you are wondering how to avoid viruses and keep your system virus free. Here are few things to follow for a virus-free system :) 





Install an antivirus program –
You should install the antivirus program, the very first thing after installing the OS. It’s very important in the new emerging networking trend where we are in touch base with each other via social media. Data transfer has been a daily task these days that even school going kids are hands on with. Hence it's necessary that we keep on running the scanning software in the background while working with our system and always scan the external device like pan drive before connecting with the system.

Don't open email attachments unless you're expecting them –
Whenever you receive any email from an unknown person always make a thumb rule that you delete that. If you think that you should check it before deletion, you should scan it properly. One simple step can save your PC and rest of the data residing there.

Keep your computer updated –
You should check for the patches/ update in every month released by Microsoft or other vendors. Most of the time when we install any program then the wizard shows an option “check for auto update”, you can check that or later check the update manually as well. Mostly when you are connected via internet, the program itself pop up the window. OS patches are available every second Tuesday of every month, you can keep you system up-to-date by using these options.

Use a firewall
Windows Firewall can help restricting unnecessary access to your system. You can restrict specific type of access (Inbound or Outbound) based on your requirement. It also blocks viruses, worms, and hackers from attempting to download potentially harmful programs to your computer. If you are an expert you can restrict specific type of ports by making rules inside the firewall.

Use your browser's privacy settings. 
If you mistype a URL and the website is fake then the websites might use your private information. It is important to prevent fraud and identity theft, especially if you are working on a public PC or from cyber café that you delete all your personal information before leaving the system. If you're using Internet Explorer or any other browser, then always ensure that you are deleting the temporary and cookies files before leaving the system.

Use a pop-up blocker with your browser. 
Pop-up windows are small browser windows that appear on top of the website you're viewing. Although most are created by advertisers, they can also contain malicious or unsafe code. A pop-up blocker can prevent some or all of these windows from appearing. It can easily be achieved from the Internet Explorer or related browser’s settings.

Keep your system safe and virus free 😊

Book Review - Rich Dad Poor Dad

Rich Dad Poor Dad

Author : Robert Kiyosaki
Genre : Self-help, Personal finance, Entrepreneurship, Investment, Economics
Publisher : Plata Publishing


Book's Epigram & My Critique:If you are seeking any advice, in Finance, Investment, Sensex, Entrepreneurship or any related topic, then the answer is, read the book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ written by Robert T. Kiyosaki. All you need to do is read this from beginning till end. The author has shared his experience and valuable outcomes through nine chapters. The author has not addressed any core finance topic but given examples and experiences from his life to help us better understanding the subject. Author has introduced two father figure persons in this book, one is his own father whom he addressed as Poor Dad, a very talented and educated person who is busy with his job and every month focuses on his bills and expenses that he has to make. On the other hand one of author’s friend’s father whom he has addressed as his second Rich Dad, has a very different opinion and understanding about all this. How middle class people think about money and don’t differentiate between asset and liabilities while spending money is discussed well in the book. There is no hard and core tips that author talks about but shares his experience and sets you free to take your own decisions based on the situation you may encounter in your life.

The author defines wealth very nicely that most of us are not aware of. How can we turn the odd environment in our favor by investing on time, importance of becoming aware of our surroundings when we make any investment decisions, are well defined. With this the author has also focused on the learning and growing of our intellectual skills by reading books, attending seminars, meeting successful people, sharing own experience and knowledge with others etc.. There are so many example author has mentioned throughout the book, for example one should focus on various fields in the life rather than mastering in one, so that you have an understanding what’s going on in your surroundings whenever you get a chance to interact with. It doesn’t mean that you should master every field but have sufficient knowledge to deal with, if any situation arises.

This is first time I purchased any finance book for reading purpose and my experience was awesome. Through this book, Robert T. Kiyosaki, gives lots of learning to the beginners and illustrates multiple examples meritoriously. This book is a must read for those who are not satisfied with their conservative financial methods and want to be rich and wealthy in their life. By reading this book, they can understand the hurdles that are stopping them to achieve their wealthy destiny and fill themselves with the positivity. Finally I would like to mention few of my favorite quotes from the book –
“A person can be highly educated, professionally successful, and financially illiterate”.

“Financial Struggle is often the result of people working all their lives for someone else”.
“Job is an acronym for “Just Over Broke”.


“For most people, the reason they don’t win financially is because the pain of losing money is far greater than the joy of being rich”.

Book Review - The Extraordinary Consciousness Of An Ordinary Man


The Extraordinary Consciousness Of An Ordinary Man

Author : Roy
Genre :  Spiritual Fiction
Publisher : Notion Press


Book's Epigram & My Critique :
This story is about ‘Gopal Banerjee’ who is travelling in a plane to Mumbai after completing his 6 months film making course from New York. During the flight he met with a person ‘Harry’ who asked him if he was a Hindu. Gopal tried to avoid his question by answering that he was an agnostic but this question shook him from within and the quest of a Hindu began. During this quest, he tried to find the real meaning of a Hindu. He met with one of the Himalayan Yogi who taught him some Kriya yoga. Gopal kept on practicing the Kriya yoga and started experiencing some divine power and great change in his personality. One day he had some intoxicated drug before practice and he seized to the same position for the next few days with divine experiences. After he came out of that situation he felt guilty for having drug and started having some drastic experiences that kept on making his life hell, he heard people voices from the surroundings like they all were intimidating him and some were making fun of his mental state. The most unusual thing during this experience was that only Gopal could hear those voices. It lowered down his performance in the advertising career and finally he left the job. After this he calmed him down and took help of one of ISCON trust and there he studied the Mahabharata. After he came back to the almost normal condition, he started his career again but now he was in love with lord Krishna. He again started his search and gone through some extraordinary experiences. Finally he moved to Mayapura, a place near Kolkata in his divine search, there he gone through mental trauma even after some divine experiences and he returned back to Mumbai. He got suffered from some psychic disease and had medication until he got fully recovered. Finally, he became normal and started an ordinary life after finding a suitable religious life partner.

The author had tried to write an epic in itself. He tried to touch too much of various religious topics that made the whole story lengthy. The book seems more an explanation than a story line. Why the writer unnecessary described the story of Mahabharata actually puzzles, which was not required. Somewhere it looks that author tried to modify the story of Mahabharata by defining it in a new way, which seems bit odd as people are aware of this great epic very well. The way, the mother of ‘Gopal’ reacted is very awkward, she has been shown a very calm and understanding mother, who only gives her son a space all the time in spite of knowing that he is going through some mental trauma and not even tried to talk to him at all and that too for one and half long year. This is practically impossible, especially for a women. Few things are explained too much that those were actually not required, for instance when author is travelling in Mumbai local to meet with Mr. G K Das, during the way what all he sees and feels described so many times that to too elaborative way diverts the reading rhythm and bore the reader. There are many events in the book that can be avoided to explain or could have been written a short and crisp way. The initial storyline is good but write has made it an explanation. Why history is being discussed at multiple times is totally irrelevant and the reader sees no connection of it with the story. I would admit that the book could have been better if the writer would have focused much on the storyline and the consequences that he tried to weave but at times the story seems to lose its beauty and the reader had to take multiple pauses to revive the zeal to continue reading the novel.

From the title it looks that with the end of the story a new or modern Buddha will born with full of knowledge  but the character chose to live an ordinary life. What happened to his continuous efforts and his spiritual achievements, the story took a very sharp drop at the end and it made the initial storyline a full waste.  ‘Gopal’ was full of multiple divine experiences and he could have found a suitable solution but why he left the search was fully unanswered and left the reader in a dilemma. What happened of his quest of a Hindu and all that he accomplished during this journey is fully gone waste.
