Last weekend, I sat down and decided to do some cleaning and
organize things that were lying around here and there. I realized there were a
lot of things and the task would be tedious and time consuming. Also, everyone
in the family had gone out to visit a relative. The only other person in the
house was my 8 year old niece. While I was thinking, what to do, where to
start, she was busy playing some game on my mobile phone. With the pile of work
in front of me, I really didn’t want to do it. But, that was not an option. So
I asked my niece if she would like to help me. She gave me a dismissing look
and did not say anything. “I will take you out for ice cream once we finish
this” I said. Nobody says no to ice cream. Not the kids and not the adults. She
quickly asked, “Promise?”
“Yes promise” I said hurriedly. An extra set of hands, even
though tiny were better than having nothing.
“What do you want me to do?” came a quick question. “Nothing
much. Just keep things where ever I tell you to. Also, would you like to make
labels as we organize thing?” I said, quickly passing on the markers and blank
labels to her. “I will eat two ice creams of my choice for this much work”, she
said. “Drama queen” I nodded affirmatively.
And we began with the work. I must admit my niece though
very young is smart and a very good assist too. We found so many things during
the cleaning. Old photographs, my tazzo set that I had collected by purchasing
the Cheetos snack that tasted horrible, old board games that were so much fun
during the afternoons of summer vacations, some of my school notebooks and
certificates and trophies won by me. She was listening to all my stories and
also telling me similar stories about her vacations, school and friends. That
is when we came across a certificate and a felicitation photograph. It was for
my first ever win. A story telling competition conducted in school. I was in
Jr. Kg and the story that I chose was – Fox and the grapes. It was nostalgic.
Even today I feel really happy and proud for that one. It takes me back to how
I practiced for a week with actions and everything to win this one. When I told
her this, she said “Maasi same pinch. I win the story telling competition in
school every year” “Oh yes, I remember your Mom telling us this” “But ours is a
little different.” She said. “How?” I asked.
She explained that instead of telling them to prepare in
advance, their school gives them a setup and a list of character and they have
to weave a story around it. Impromptu. That really is interesting. But can kids
these young really come with stories in a short time? I asked her to tell me
one of hers. And then she told me about the one she told in last year’s competition.
And trust me it was beautiful. Kids really are very talented these day!
With a similar concept Colgate Strong Teeth has come up with
4 packs that have interesting sea creatures & some trivia inside them. Kids
can cut, play & learn and do the story telling by weaving their imagination
Hope you are having a great weekend. I have been really tied up
with work these days and hardly find any time to do anything :/
Last Sunday, I was at my
Aunt’s place. That is when I met Prathamesh. He is her house help’s kid. A very
naughty and active child, running all around the house. Playing with him, I did
not realize how 3 hours passed. It was only when we were both called to eat
lunch did I realize how we ourselves become kids with a child around. And with
all the running and playing I was actually looking forward to a hearty lunch. A
lovely spread of a variety of delicacies. I took a little of everything. But
when I see Prathamesh’s plate, it just had steamed rice with very little dal. I
was astonished and asked his Mom why he would just eat daal rice with so many
yummy options on the table. That is when she said he is a very picky eater. He
eats very few things. Even for school lunch he only takes bread and jam. And
that is when it striked to me. School lunch? Is he a school going kid? Doesn’t
really look a day over than two and a half years. What shocked me even more is
that he is around 4 years. How can a child look half is actual age. He is
really lagging behind in both height and weight. And that is not a hereditary issue.
Both his mother and father are of average body structure.
That is when I did some research and found out that there are many
other kids like Prathamesh who are lagging behind in their body growth due to
several reasons. And the regular diet is not enough for them. They need
additional supplements. One such nutrition product that I came across is
Horlicks Growth+is a specialized nutrition product
designed by international pediatric experts for children in age group of 3-9
years who are lagging behind in height and weight. It contains high quality
whey protein with added nutrients that are known to enable children to catch up
on lost growth. It has been clinically proven for visible growth in children in
But when going for additional supplements for kids starting
something you found over the internet is not wise. So I suggested she visit a pediatrician.
She asked me I could accompany her. I agreed and we called up for an
appointment with their pediatrician in the evening. We spoke to her in the
evening. I shared what I had read on the internet. The doctor then explained
the reasons and solutions to us. Also, she said there is no harm in starting
with Horlicks Growth+
On our way back home, we bought Horlicks Growth+ and she has
already started it for the kid. Hopefully, the product helps.
Have you ever come across a kid lagging in height and weight growth?
What are the possible solutions to overcome this problem? Do share in the
Friday and a Yay! I have a great news for all the car lovers
out there. Datsun has launched a brand new car for today’s ready to go
generation– DATSUN REDI-GO. The brand calls it a unique fusion of compact
crossover & urban hatchback, offering the best of both worlds.
The car boasts several features that makes it a go to car
for me. I would surely love to take it out for a spin on the Mumbai roads. And
what better place to test a car than the Mumbai roads. If a car can survive
this, it can surely survive any other road conditions.
It has several impressive features that will surely make you
want to get behind the steering wheel like
·BEST-IN-CLASS GROUND CLEARANCE
·DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS
·SPACIOUS OVERALL INTERIOR
·5-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
·SUPERIOR SUSPENSION SYSTEM
Of these, the 3 features that I would really want to test
drive the DATSUN REDI-GO are –
INTERIOR: Nothing puts me off about a car like a car that hardly offers
space for movement. Especially when the travelling hours are more and once is
going to be stuck in traffic. Also, when going for a road trip with a lot of
people, having a spacious vehicle is a must.
So now everyone in the family can travel up to 5 people comfortably with
an additional luggage space. More the people, more the fun. No more cancelling
of plans because you cannot say no nor accommodate everyone.
TRANSMISSION: If you are like me and hate jerks in controls, your prayers
have been answered. DATSUN redi-GO’s 5-speed manual transmission promises smooth
control and precise shifting for a more seamless response to the demands. Say
hello to a smooth, fun and comfortable travelling experience.
SUPERIOR AIR CONDITIONING:
If you are surprised that I choose this as one the 3 most important features, don’t
be. If you have been in Mumbai, you will understand the reason behind my
choice. Mumbai is warm and humid round the year, irrespective of the season.
Also, all thanks to the traffic scenes, one ends up spending more time than
required behind the wheels. So, it’s important that the ride be comfortable and
fun. DATSUN redi-GO’s air conditioning has been specially tested and optimized
to suit Indian weather to keep you comfortable irrespective of the outside
temperature. Another USP of its air conditioning is that the integrated center
AC vent distributes the air evenly to the front and rear seats. No more
arguments on who will occupy the front seats now!
Datsun redi-Go surely promises - Fun. Freedom. Confidence.
The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with
the convenience of a hatchback.
Booking for the car are open. You can also book the car on
Snapdeal now. I am pretty excited to go for a test drive. Are you? Also, let me
know in the comments below, which of these features did you find most exciting.
