New diaper pants from Pamper


I still remember when my neighbor visited my place with her two little twins for the advice of my mom, because her child got rashes on her entire body. My mom told her to keep his entire room and surroundings of child, clean and hygiene, as the health and skin of every baby is very fragile. Now a days many multinational companies provides babies products, even herbal products for babies are also available in India.

In olden days shell powder (i.e. sea shell) were used as a talcum for babies, but now we are getting researched products for infants. We are getting advanced and comfortable products for the babies, also Pamper diapers are getting in a pant style were mothers don’t have to worry for wrapping. Also if you are purchasing Pampers pants then don’t worry for the rashes as it is available with gel inside the diaper which absorbs pee quickly and there will be no rashes for the babies. 

Important points which I came to know from my mother to keep baby healthy, I am just sharing with you all:

1. Prepare your baby for routine bath in the morning. This routine will keep babies skin clean, the water should be warm – not to hot, not to cold. After bath generally babies feel sleepy which is beneficial for mothers to do other activities.
2. Use 2 in 1 soap i.e. body and hair cleanser. Also soap should be with natural ingredients without any allergic reaction and irritation free.
3. After the bath clean with babies’ towel, and also that towel should be washed every fortnight with hot water.
4. Use moisturizing cream, ointment, natural oil or lotion after bath on your baby’s skin. In olden days butter was used for sensitive skin and at the time of winter.
5. Use sunscreen lotion at the time of direct sunlight. Also the sunscreen lotion should be chemical free and it should be made with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as active ingredients, this are best against UV rays which are harmful for baby’s skin.
6. Generally newborn have jaundice at the time of birth so you should keep your child in sunlight in early morning. Your child will get vitamin D from the morning sunlight which is best for newborn babies.
7. Use cotton cloths (we call it as malmal) to clean, wrap or for day to day purpose as it is made from 100 percent cotton. And my suggestion to recent mom’s Please don’t use polyester cloth for you child, as it will adversely effects to child’s skin.    

And last but not the least enjoy the motherhood.

Book Review: Pupil’s President A. P. J. Abdul Kalam by Satyam Roychowdhury

Book Review: Pupil’s President A. P. J. Abdul Kalam by Satyam Roychowdhury

*Publisher: Bee Books *ISBN: 978-93-80925-29-5 *No of Pages: 312 *Cover: Hardback *Language: English *Genre: Non-Fiction/Essay *Price: 500 *Rating: 4/5

My View:

I still remember the event of my college inauguration in 2001, where A P J Abdul Kalam visited and has given very inspiring speech at that time, also I was fortunate to see him from a distance of just 10 feet, I will never forget this moment in my life.

Now about this book, our former cricket skipper Sourav Ganguly launched this book on Teacher’s day i.e. on 5th September 2015 in Kolkata. The book is a collection of various speech and sayings of A P J Abdul kalam, tribute given by media, scientists, students and persons who were working with Dr Kalam, also there are interviews of his (dr kalam’s) family member. The book is a memorial to Dr Kalam, who worked his entire life for the betterment of India. Even at the age of 83 he used to travel to meet different places of India, to give speech on education, vision and for growth of India.
A P J Abdul Kalam who was loved to be known as teacher, missile man and 11th President of India passed away what he loved the most, delivering the lecture or rather teaching before the students of IIM Shilong on 27th July 2015. A down-to-earth personality, he loved to interact with school students, he inspired them to convert their dreams into reality.  

Journey of a Legend: A child born in 1931 in a middle class family in Rameshwaram in south India, his father owned a boat and rented to a local fisherman, for his career he became newspaper vendor, he earned his degree of aeronautical from madras, Kalam joined Vikram Sarabhai at Kerala in 1960 as first three engineers, played a major role for satellite launch vehicle (SLV), he worked for DRDO (Defense Research and Development Organization) and ISRO, Indian scientist has acclaimed him as a missile man and father of Indian nuclear bomb, kalam was proud to be known as Made in India and his Indian education, he became the 11th president of India. 

This is a must read book not only for the youths but for education system, as this is giving a good message which will help to develop our nation from the ground level i.e. through schools and teachers. An inspirational book, Dr Kalam proved that dreams really can be turned into reality with hard work.

What I liked the most in the book:
  • Site to establish a space research station at Thumba in Kerala. Government was unable to vacant this place, but with the help of Bishop’s father the place was vacated. Page no 66
  • Inspiring story of Mario Capecchi and his quotes. Page no 88
  • One of the best speeches of A P J Abdul Kalam from entire book at IIT Hyderabad about freedom is most inspiring speech and I think every Indian school should circulate this speech among students. Page no 117
  • A good tribute to A P J Abdul Kalam by Hair Stylist Habib Ahmed on page 222.
  • Poem: Indomitable Spirit on page 259

Blurb For Pupils’ President:

The students’ diligent teacher, the nation’s gifted scientist, the humble ‘People’s President’ - an indefinable name he is. Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. A man who dedicated his life and work to the betterment of a nation, and his time and energy to the billions of young minds he wished to ignite. He has left back dreams in everyone, and the undying inspiration to make those dreams come true.
A surfeit of contents has been interwoven to give this book a shape. To read through the pages will mean a journey through his life in entirety. Besides Kalam’s own speeches and quotes, it also contains literary tributes by scientists, academicians and students, the interviews of his family members, and a real-time anecdote of his interment ceremony at Rameswaram.
This isn’t just a tribute, but a world beyond it to be read, explored and discovered.

Book Review: Karna's alter ego by Surendra Nath

Book Review: Karna’s Alter Ego by Surendra Nath

*Publisher: Dream house publications *ISBN: 978-93-84180-11-9 *No of Pages: 250 *Cover: Paperback *Language: English *Genre: Fiction *Price: 175 *Rating: 5/5

My View:

Incredible this book is really awesome; it’s an inspirational novel, especially for today’s youth who feel very low when the situation is against them. This entire book is a message; one should follow at the time of adversity. The message of the book is try try until you succeed, similar like Bhagwat Gita gyan. It’s a best combination of mythology with 21st century.

I think everyone has watched the movie Munna bhai MBBS 2 where Bapu (Mahatma Gandhi) talks with Munna (Sanjay Dutt), same happens here in the novel to protagonist, but her the message is totally different from the movie, here the message conveyed to Vasu by Karna is really inspiring. We know each and everyone among us has been faced with a situation where some other guy tricks us and grabs the credit, to overcome this types of situation, read this novel, although there is no solution but it will help you to see a positive outcome in any situation.

Writing style of the author is simple; but I felt the starting was a bit slow although the conversation between Vasu and Karana makes you read further, also I must say the entire novel is written with great creativity. I think this book will help you when you are low and doesn’t find any solution of any problem you are facing.

This is a rare kind of book which will feel you to re read and circulate it with others so that they will feel solace at the time of adversity. A must read book.


Karna, the ill-fated hero of Mahabharata. Many feel he deserved to win. If only luck had favoured him….

5000 years later, we have a man named Vasu, who is much like Karna -  born illegitimate, very talented but denied all credits in life, rejected in love, misses a medal in the Asian games, gets caught for telling an innocent lie, overlooked for promotion. He begins to identify himself with Karna, and interestingly Karna appears to him after every debacle to assuage and encourage him.
It seems Vasu is Karna’s alter ego.

Book Review: Voicemates by Anamika Mishra

Book Review: Voicemates by Anamika Mishra

*Publisher: Jaico Publishing House *ISBN: 978-81-8495-767-9 *No of pages: 200 *Cover: Paperback *Language: English *Genre: Fiction *Price: 250 *Rating: 3.5/5
My View:

If you liked to watch reality show or would like to participate in these types of shows, then this novel is for you. From last 7-8 years in India reality shows like Indian Idol, Voice of India etc grabs the biggest TRP’s, so to be famous and hardcore lover of music and singing, they dream to win this type of shows. Also we have got good singers from these types of reality shows.

Now about this novel, this is the story of Tulip Hill and Sam, Tulip comes from rich and somewhat orthodox family. Tulip wants to be a singer and she is hardcore music lover, her dream is to win the famous reality show “Voicemate” which is going to organize in her hometown Goa. On the other hand Sam is an orphan, he sings and play guitar for the living. Sam and Tulip meets in an odd situation and Sam convince Tulip to participate in reality show Voicemate.

I thought Sam’s character is not properly brought to the readers, how he knows more English songs, how he learns about lyrics even though he has not taken any formal training in music.

Anyways, there are pros and cons to every book but to be frank, I really liked the book, the cover of the book is excellent, and the writing style of the author is simple and easy to read. Also the flow of the novel is fast, can be completed in one sitting. Love story of Tulip and Sam is properly upheld thoroughly.

This book is a good message for today’s youngsters, it shows what actually reality shows means for them, these shows are a way of hope for youngsters to pursue their passion. Voicemates is an inspirational story, read the book to know the rollercoaster ride of Tulip and Sam.

Tulip Hill is an obedient and intelligent daughter to her disciplinarian parents. She has been a topper throughout her school, because her parents wanted her to be. Now, they want her to enroll in one of the best colleges. But Tulip harbors the desire to become a singer, for music is her only passion that helps her see through life’s miseries.

Then there is Sam – witty, easy-going and flirty. Both Tulip and Sam share their love for music. Yet, both dream of a different life.

What are to those dreams? What happens when they meet and enter the biggest duet competition together? Will their love blossom during this emotional roller-coaster?

Join the Voicemates in their musical journey to know more!
