    Leaving water outside for the birds

    The heat is becoming unbearable, so much so that the natural water resources are drying up. This leads to birds becoming exhausted and ultimately dying due to thirst.

    Rice flour and honey scrub

I left this pack on face for 10 minutes and then scrubbed it off. It has evened out my skin tone to some extent. This...

    Changing climates due to global warming

    Much has been said on this topic and there are numerous discussions and proposed solution to avert climate change. But is it of any use?

    Traditional TV is fast becoming obsolete!

    Now all the major film makers and TV program producers are shifting to OTT platforms such as Amazon Prime and Netflix. You have to subscribe to these channels in order to watch new content. I think it is quite annoying to pay extra for new content when you are already paying a lot of monthly...

    Cooking oil

    I prefer to use cold-pressed oil which has only been filtered and generally dislike using refined oil. Refined oils are supposedly heated at high temperatures and some chemicals are added to the process to 'purify' them and then vitamins such as A, D, E etc. added to them. So I prefer not to use...
