My latest interest is in knowing about marketing campaigns that changed how we know and perceive certain things. For example diamonds. The long held belief that diamonds are rare precious stones symbolizing forever is nothing but the fruits of a widely successful marketing campaign. Here's the link . Today, we will talk about shaving. It is no... Continue Reading →

Nature

​ Sometimes all I want is to disconnect with everyone else to connect with myself. Somedays more than others. Not my usual me time when I listen to songs or wish to be alone but to run away, to talk a walk among nature. To feel, to connect and to reflect. Think about everything and... Continue Reading →

For The Boys…

​ You need to know this You are beautiful  Yes, I know you prefer handsome, the charmer, the gentleman. But you are beautiful along with all of that. _ Yes, you with your brown eyes.

They need to be remembered not on some special occasion but every day. It is because of their sacrifices that hundreds and thousands of others are able to breathe... Continue Reading →

The Flower

​A flower blooms oblivious to the harshness of the weather and its own beauty.  It does what it knows. It does what it needs to survive. It blooms while the sun is shining. It blooms with the kisses of the rain. It blooms bold and beautiful, unaware of its beauty becoming the bane of its... Continue Reading →

It’s A No From Me

​I wish we could all be like Simon and say," It's a no from me" whenever we feel like it or maybe Greg screaming "not my division" (Sherlock reference). But fortunately or unfortunately we are not. For most of us saying no is in itself a herculian task. It is hard to say no when... Continue Reading →
