Happy Woman’s Day to all wonderful ladies out there.

Love who you are, embrace who you are. Love yourself. 

If we must celebrate a day for women, let us celebrate freedom from stereotypes, from expectations, from idolization, from sacrifice..
Stop congratulating women for being the secret behind a successful man… Start saluting them for being successful!

Stop saying the mother is sacred for all the sacrifices she makes. Try to reduce those sacrifices!

Stop telling women they are beautiful. Try telling them it’s not important to be beautiful!

Stop praising her roles as mother, wife, daughter, sister. Celebrate her as an individual, a person, independent of relationships.

Stop justifying her necessity to multi task. Give her a chance not to!

Stop these constructs which are aimed at making her strive for an impossible balance… Let her be inadequate and happy!

Stop making her look at herself through a conveniently male viewpoint. Let her be imperfect, whimsical, irresponsible, boorish, lazy, fierce, opinionated, loud, flabby, ungroomed, adventurous, unpredictable, unprepared, impractical…

Be bold, be you!

Benefits of Earthen Pot Water .

The Summer is arriving….. and now we’ll all start buying new set of bottles for fridge or some of us will head towards storeroom to get the last years fridge bottles. But, Do we know how harmful these plastic bottles are? unless they are BPA free.

Lets try Earthen pot (matka, matki, surahi) this time.

For generations, earthen pots or matkis have been used to store water and keep it cool. Water stored in matkis  is cooled to the temperature of the water which is ideal for drinking – not too warm and not too chilled.

Here are few benefits of drinking matki cooled water this summer :

  • Metabolism : Yes, you read it right, drinking matki water daily can help us  boost our metabolism without adding dangerous chemicals like BPA which are present in Plastic bottles .
  • pH balance :  Matki’s earthen nature provides a proper pH balance as clay pots are alkaline in nature , which helps in acidity and gastronomic pains.
  • Gentle On Throat : We all remember the times when our elders used to scold us for drinking chilled water after coming from direct sun. They might have asked to have normal water or matki water instead . Water stored in matkis  is cooled naturally and to the temperature which is ideal for drinking.
  • Improves Testosterone level: Clay pot water drinking can very well improve the level of testosterone in your body when compared water stored in plastic.
