Kiss and Make Up

December 29, 2015 , 26 Comments

Lovers forlorn
lovers torn
in tussle of ego and pain.

Lovers mourn,
complain and moan
and rush out to anger trips

Lovers aggrieved,
lovers believed
that fault is always two's own

lovers unite,
lovers ignite
the same love that brought them once along

Life is a mesh
happiness and grief mess
but a challenge that you must take up.
fight you must
but always remember to
Kiss and makeup

I have written this instant poem towards the lovely picture prompt given by Magpie. If you liked my poem and think that it is too good to be instant, thank the lovely prompt. The prompt did that to me :)

DoYourHomework for your child’s Education

December 24, 2015 0 Comments

Little ambitions and rising cost of education

Agatha is a very bright student. Given her deep inclination towards education and science, she harbours dreams of becoming an astrophysicist one day. Her parents are very much happy with her academic progress and aspirations but at the same time worry about her future. The reason behind their worry is how to fund her dreams. Agatha belongs to a middle-class family wherein both her parents work in a small firm to make ends meet. Giving the rising cost of living and education, they feel really helpless thinking about the time when Agatha will grow up and have to join a college for her higher education. They wonder whether their limited affordability will act as a hindrance to their child’s future. They were deep in worry when Agatha came running to the dining table. She had done her school homework and joined her parents for the supper.

While Agatha has done her homework, it is time for her parents to their homework.

#DoYourHomework with Axis Mutual Fund

Who says parents do not need to do their homework? It is not just Agatha’s parents but all parents in general, are worried about their child’s future. There is a beautiful thing about future that begins at the “present”i.e. today.

Give your child a present of present and gift her/him something that will not just help the child/ children build their careers but something that they will cherish life-long. Give them a gift of Axis Mutual fund Education Plan. For more details check- webLink(

Why investment in education?

Parents need to plan for their children’s future and be prepared for their decision both emotionally & financially to fulfil their aspirations. A child goes through different phases of life and keeps on changing their future goals. Some children want to be a doctor and some aspire to be a wild life photographer. While competition and others do play a vital role between what they set to achieve and what they become, as a parent, you would like to be least assured that the money should not be the deciding factor. Hence, you need to plan well and what better than a planning or a lavish gift that is Tax-free?

I remember how I wanted to study abroad but I could not take it forward given the high cost of education there and a sudden loss in family’s business which suggested that I complete my education within the country, along with my other 2 siblings. It does not mean that the cost of education in India is low. This emphasizes how a well-invested education plan comes handy at the face of the sudden financial situation.

So parents,  visit site/app and learn more about how to plan better and be financially ready for your child's dream career. Take the first step in helping your child/children fulfil their aspirations. Visit the website or download the “Homework” mobile app for more info.

Have dreaming, happy fulfilling
And #DoYourHomework

The See-saw of Life

December 18, 2015 , 4 Comments

via MagpieTales

In your life,
you will always find
people who pull you out
people who push you down
but Ahoy! my friend
stay calm and precious
Enjoy your ride
keep your innocence intact
and the childlike pride.

There will be many passers-by.
While some may watch,
some may turn blind eye.
At the end when you see
you will find life like a see-saw
where it does not matter
whether you are going up or down.
what matters is
if you had a fun ride.

Say yes to life and enjoy the ride while it lasts.

Every year, many people succumb to loneliness, depression and meloncholy. The ever increasing competition and pressure drives many of us wild, bewildered and lost. Do not let yourself carried away in waves of joy and depth of sorrows. Turn on that invincible smile and walk on....

Donate Blood, Save Life with HDFC Bank 9th Blood Donation drive

December 16, 2015 1 Comments

The blood is red gold in time of saving a life

Banking major- HDFC Bank knows their finances well. They value equity, investments and gold alike. one such gold is the- Red Gold- the Blood. And like all other banking, financial and asset management services, HDFC Bank leaves no stone unturned to manage this precious stock well.

Recently HDFC bank organized a nationwide Blood donation campaign in Mumbai. It was the 9th blood donation drive that the bank has been undertaking since 2007. This year HDFC Bank has taken a step ahead and reached out to other corporates by setting and facilitating up blood donations camps. Their good intention paid and the drive saw more than 200 companies participating in the same. 

The campaign also saw a large number of volunteers lined up to donate blood at over 2000 designated centers in 930 locations across the country. Donors included people from different walks of life like- HDFC Bank employees, corporate executives, customer and college students among others. Talking about the active youth participation, the last 3 years saw the Bank getting an overwhelming response from the youth across the nation. The no of participating colleges this year was a whoopping 750. If you see participating students count, well it increased from 20,057 in 2012 to 67,871 in 2014. 

To bring forth this noble cause, the Bank had tied up with major hospitals and blood banks to provide technical and operational assistance. The campaign was inaugurated by its CEO- Mr. Aditya Puri and was led by business head Mr. Bhavesh Jhaveri, who also stepped forth  on this noble cause and donated his blood. 

“As a socially responsible corporate citizen, we wish to do our part to narrow the gap in demand and supply of blood. It is a life-saving resource which has no substitute. We thank everyone who has come forward this year and helped us in our mission to maintain safe and stable 
blood supply.” ” said Mr. Bhavesh Zaveri, Country Head, Operations, HDFC Bank.

Apparently in 2014, the bank has collected around 1,28,642 units of blood from 1,55,599 participants at 1987 collection centers across 913 locations. Phew! Did we not tell you that HDFC Bank does know its Gold well? 

Numerounity was invited to witness this good-hearted initiative that was launched on 12th December 2015 at HDFC Bank Office. We understand the value of blood donation and how it gives a chance to any of us to save a life. The blood that we donate gives someone another chance to live and this is a noble gesture that costs you nothing as long as you are doing it under wings of a reputed and public brand. Let me tell you- 

Donating blood is painless, noble and costs you nothing. The myth associated with prevailing weakness post blood donation needs to be settled. Yes do consult the doctor if you have a health condition. If you do not have a health condition and can donate your blood, remember-

" Blood Donation Costs you nothing but saves a life"!

To substantiate this, I approached few donors at the HDFC Bank 9th Blood donation camp and asked them about their experience. Their enthusiasm and support was un-missable and I wanted to share with all my readers. So I requested and tried to capture at least some enthusiasm on my camera. Here's a dekko at what Amrita and her friend had to say- 

I told you it is inspirational. If you noticed neither of them were feeling weak post blood donation but were sporty and cherubic as ever. So if Amrita and her friend Nikita can donate blood, what prevents you?

Here few more glimpses from the HDFC Bank Blood Donation Drive -

Mr Aditya Puri lighting the lamp and inaugrating the 9th Blood Donation Drive by HDFC Bank
The blood donation camp in progress at HDFC Bank Office, Mumbai

 So I sign off with a humble appeal to all of you. Do donate your blood and save a life!

Taking Chandigarh on Global Map with WTC

December 05, 2015 4 Comments

India- Destination Infinity

Living and travelling in different parts of geography, gives you a new high, new experiences and valuable explorations. One such beautiful city I visited is Chandigarh.

Chandigarh is a sleepy little city at the cusp of Punjab, Haryana and Delhi. I have visited this well planned city a few months back and was completely mesmerized by it. When I said mesmerized, I did not mean that I was affected by just the planned infrastructure or the lake or the food, it was everything put together. The beauty of it all is that Chandigarh is not only a [picturesque city, it is also a confluence of growing trade and economic powerhouse.

India is the hub of culture, tradition and natural beauty. Not just that, India is also one of the fastest growing economies in the world with 7.5% GDP growth that makes it the 3rd largest economy in the world [Source -World Bank]. If you see stats, some of the most powerful business houses across the world are being headed and managed by Indians. Needless to say, India is a talent house for the world and our language fluency and adaptation capabilities makes us a very sought after community.

Not straying from the point of our conversation, Chandigarh is one of the 98 approved smart cities of India. Its connectivity to other business and tourism hubs nearby makes it a very attractive location.

Chandigarh is growing, and growing steadily. The growth can be exponential, provided that it gets the right amount of commerce attention. That will not just add to the economic growth but will invite the world to invest in this beautiful city. It is indeed a vision, a vision that WTC- World Trade Centre has seeded in Chandigarh

World Trade Centre and Vision Chandigarh

WTC, a global name in building and infrastructure, WTC, a catalyst of regional development and growth, is opening business at Chandigarh. WTC is the largest network of office complexes in the world. It is present across 330 cities in 100 countries, and attracts higher occupancy, lease rates and capital appreciation, as compared to other properties.

WTC Chandigarh Aerocity, dream facilitation by the flag bearers of sustainable development-Viridian RED, is indeed going to be a boon to already booming economy of Chandigarh. It will not just up the ante for Chandigarh Real estate market but will take the productivity of Chandigarh by leaps and bound. The building, like other WTC buildings, across the world is going to house every single amenity and will attract prospective investors and businesses alike. Chandigarh has been ranked 7th in the top 50 IT and ITES sourcing destinations globally. It offers not just good quality of life, but great connectivity and power infrastructure as well. With WTC, Chandigarh will see a surge in different development project that it is harnessing for growth, including a 250 MW power plant set up project with GAIL.

Well, the beauty of it all is that not only Chandigarh, but cities, towns and even hamlets around the city are sure gainers in the whole scenario. I remember when I last visited Chandigarh, I loved it so much that I wanted to stay back.Who knows if my contemplation to shift there or finally invest in Chandigarh will see some good actions.

Did I not mention- possibilities are endless?
