Manali – A Glimpse of The Himalayas



The Himalayas have always been this mountain range I have wanted to see if not all at least a glimpse of it to begin with. And so we decided to take this trip to Manali impromptu. Our original plan was to visit Sikkim which we now left for a later time.I think this is the riskiest journey I have ever been on. We took a bus ride to Manali. Manali is a valley nestled between the mountains and is at a height of 6398 ft above sea level. Now, that is pretty high!Manali isn't

Taj Mahal | A Token of Love

Time and time again, I have heard and read the story behind the building of Taj Mahal. It always amazed me how one building could look so different every time of the day. How it changed its color depending on the light cast on it.I remember reading about it as a kid. I remember seeing the different pictures of it in magazines, and newspapers back in the days of no internet. I remember reading my sister's research paper in university. She had cutouts of different pictures of the Taj Mahal

All those questions you have in mind when it comes to seeing what kind of a destination it is, I have put it down here. So, Let's find out!Where did we stay? What was the local scene

A Halal Travel Guide to Indore

What does it mean to travel to a city that hasn't been written about when it comes to safety in terms of travelling with the veil on? I believe in the fact that The Almighty is protecting me whenever I am in the Hijab. That the veil

is a shield that stops me from a lot of harm and unfavorable situations. It has always been a source of protection for me!There is always an inside fear of travelling to a new place. Are people going to stare? Are they going to harm me? Am I going to

Living in History

They say 2000 feet above Hyderabad is a sky paved with gold. Taj Falaknuma Palace, the very essence of its name has a meaning that says Mirror in the sky, and true to its name it stands in grandeur, 500 feet above the city itself. The palace was designed in 1894 by a British architect Willam Ward Marret, and is set on a 32-acre estate. He employed an idiosyncratic combination of Renaissance and baroque styles to create an immense structure that was clearly intended to rival the palaces of

One of the most scenic spots we went to in Macedonia and one I would love to go back again to.
The water was so chilly, the colors around so beautiful. What I love about nature is that it does not judge. It shows the same beauty to everyone around. Everyone gets the same service regardless of who they are.
Come rain or wind, it passes through everywhere with no exception. Isn't nature such a wonderful teacher?
Only if we took lessons from it! Whats the favorite lesson you have learnt from nature?

No matter how narrow minded we think a person can be, they can still see beauty if they really want to look for it. Beauty and Goodness is there in everyone just like faults. Why is it so easy to point out faults and not the good?
Can you go to sleep with a clean conscience having pointed out someone's fault? Or is the happiness through saying the right words that makes your day happy?
If so, before you write from behind the screen, before anger, jealousy or negative feelings take over your words, try and pause and choose the good words 💟 .

I sat down with the ENT specialist Dr. Agish Mathew at Aster Hospital and one of the things I learnt was more on the problem of snoring in sleep. More than 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when breathing is disrupted during sleep for short periods), which increases the risk of developing heart disease.😲😲
At Aster Hospital they can provide the service of observing you and analysing your sleep patterns . More often than not a person who snores struggles to get enough oxygen into the brain while asleep and the person wakes up tired because the body works so hard while asleep😌 to get enough oxygen into the brain.
For this reason, if anyone around you has a snoring problem, dont take it lightly.
The Aster Hospital in Qatar offers the service of studying sleeping disorders overnight and making sure to diagnose the cause of it and how to rectify it.
Did you know about this before?
Share it with everyone you know!

Life is not meant to be a race. Time flies by so fast. And, then you realize you have passed over your prime years not having done anything.
A reminder to myself in this race against time chasing I do not know what 😭
Do you think about these things?

On a side note, clicked that in the middle of grocery shopping at Spinneys because instagrammable tiles & shoes just coincided in the moment. 😂

Growing up in the desert, I underestimated what could grow in a desert until I visited @edenfarmqatar
I also learnt much more on how research and hardwork goes a long way.
It's always about making the best of what you have that leaves you with a sense of accomplishment.
