The Burning Sun☀️ narrated me the tales of fire, strength, energy & power. The misty moon told me about the strength in poise, calmness and serendipity. The Sun covered me up with its fierce wings of fire, whenever I needed protection and gave me the strength to fight back. The moon, on the other hand, dimmed the light for me and told me to stay calm amid chaos.
The sun always expected me to shine strong among the crowd, stay in the limelight, hold the power, be the first to rise ahead. But the Moon reciprocated & said, don’t run behind the light, don’t indulge in this rat race. You rise, when you rise. Let the light reach to you on its own. Don’t glare for power, it will turn you blind.
The Sun always convinced me to be rock strong and flawlessly gorgeous, The moon whispered in my ears, that flaws were good and being a little weak at times was fine. He said, Flaws make you, who you are. Wear them and adorn your Imperfections like a crown. The Sun won’t be the sun, if he didn’t have this raging anger, furious flames and the obsessive excellence to rise the first always.
I won’t be the moon, If I wasn’t suttle, a little more friendly than the sun and lazy to arrive, by the time the sun sets. We both have our flaws, but who knew, they would be acknowledged as our superpowers, one day.
The sun evoked me saying, You have the ultimate power to be a saviour of this world and change this world for better with courage and light. The moon told me to stay quiet, observe the nights and see how things fall into place within a period & if not, use kindness and compassion to improve what’s in the inside of you, yourself.
Do you ever comb your hair, and then you look at your brush and be like, “Damn, I’m gonna lose all my hair”. Well Hairfall and dandruff issues can be counted as an integral part of our life now and we have to go through them some time or the other. There maybe various causes like heredity, nutritional deficiency, stress, biological conditions, hormonal imbalance, use of wrong haircare products, over-styling your hair with heat, hair colouring, seasonal damage and much more.

Today, we’ll be interacting about “Upakarma Ayurveda”, which is one of the fastest-growing brands in India and works with an agenda of “Balance of Life”.

Leave it overnight or for few hours and then wash it off with the Upakarma onion shampoo for best results.

Now, I’ve used many onion oil shampoos to improve my hair texture from frequent damage caused due to styling, straightening or hair colouring, but this shampoo from Upakarma tops them all, in terms of results.
-(Application & Benefits):- With the first wash, you can expect a squeaky clean scalp and by the second wash, massage it thoroughly into your scalp and hair and rinse well.

I don’t think, we as people of different caste, creed, religion, race, gender or nationality have any kind of differences among us. I really don’t think, that our scriptures and holy books defy the ultimate goal of humanity and love & respect for all.
I really don’t think, that human beings, the social creatures are born as of right or left-wing supporting ideologies or a religious chauvinist or extremist. I don’t think, we are born as someone who prioritises religion over humanity. I don’t think, we can ever look at anyone of any nationality, race or religion and think evil about them.
Then, how come this world got divided into narrow fragments of class and caste-based societies, race and religion-based difference, majority and minority differences. What are these clashes all about?? I’ll tell you, it’s not we as the people who are fighting against each other, but we are being provoked by emotional tools of religion and race to fight against each other by the political parties, the government or by the extremist religious groups.
Whenever you think evil about another side of society, just think for once, Would your god or would your religion preach you to do that? Is your religion not preaching you about the values of tolerance and love? Then, What are we doing exactly? Where is this world heading to?
Well, all of us have faced dry & frizz prone hair issues every now & then. Whether it be about, the stubborn split ends or damaged hair, in one form or the other, the hair issues have always accompanied us. We are living in the kind of age, where we blow dry, straighten or dye our hair every now and then, and there’s no doubt about the hair looking glamorous, but ultimately we have to pay a big price for all the heat and damage our hair is going through.
All of us, strive for the smooth & silky, glossy and bouncy cover girl hair, which is voluminous, but still manageable at the end of the day.
With the parlours being shut down due to Covid-19 lockdown or our own mentality to stay immune, by not visiting them. We all need to come up with solutions where we can get parlour like glow & hair spa at home itself.
So, today I’ll be interacting about two of my favourite hair care products, which are Trichup Keratin Shampoo & Trichup Hot Oil Treatment Hair mask, which will take care of your hair care regimen at the convenience of your home itself.
•So, What is Keratin and why is it useful for hair?
Keratin is the type of protein that makes up your hair, skin, and nails. Basically, it’s a protective protein, less prone to scratching or tearing, compared to other types of cells your body produces. Since keratin is the structural building block of your hair, keratin supplements, products, and treatments can help strengthen your hair and make it look healthier.
Keratin works by smoothing down the cells that overlap to form your hair strands. The layers of cells, called the hair cuticle, absorb the keratin, resulting in hair that looks full and glossy. Keratin also claims to make curly hair less frizzy, easier to style, and straighter in appearance.
•Trichup Keratin Shampoo:-
Starting with the packaging, the shampoo comes in a bottle form of 200 ml. It is lightweight and travel friendly. The lock is quite reliable, so you don’t have to worry about its spilling out in your vanity case. The fragrance of the shampoo is citrusy floral and very mild & gentle. If you are someone who prefers light fragrances over harsher ones, this one’s for you. It is free from SLES, Parabens & Dioxane.
The basic ingredient which makes the shampoo stand out in the crowd is Hydrolyzed Keratin, which repairs & restores your hair quality. A small amount of shampoo is all you need, to get all that grease, dirt and oil out of your hair. It removes sebum. The keratin in the shampoo forms a layer over your hair, replacing the lost protein & rebuilding the strength, returning elasticity & reducing breakage.
I am using it since some time now and my hair feels more manageable and glossy. Also, I have noticed that it doesn’t dry up my hair completely and retains the moisture. My hair may not come out as extremely soft but the texture of each and every strand has improved. There are no split ends at all and it has enhanced my overall hair appearance. Suitable for all hair types. Priced at 220 Rs for 200 ml.
A 500 ml bottle of pure goodness which will provide you with a hassle-free and salon-like luxurious hair spa at home, within minutes. Hair masks are so much into trend these days and about this particular hair mask, it comes with a very good quantity at such a budget-friendly price. Even if you are using it once every week, it will last for almost a year, with reference to medium hair length. It has a very delicate lingering fragrance, which acts as a de-stressor on its own. I like to use it as a part of my self-care regimen.
All you have to do is, you have to apply it evenly over your wet hair from root to tip after shampooing your hair. You can leave it for 15-20 minutes, preferably with hair wrapped in a hot towel for best results and rinse off thoroughly. It leaves you with smooth and glossy hair and also drastically reduces hair fall & dandruff issues. It repairs and prevents further hair cuticle damage. Additionally, better moisture content of the hair gives increased flexibility & tensile strength. Free from parabens & Silicons. Suitable for all hair types. Priced at Rs. 699 for 500 ml.
It’s much better for people to hate us or not like us, rather than love us wrongly. Nothing hurts more than, being surrounded by a love which doesn’t feel like love, which feels as if someone is prickling you with a throne every time.
. It’s better to hear, I hate you or it’s better to muster the courage to hear the words, that I don’t like your company rather than being in love with someone, whosoever it may be, any relationship, and letting it turn into “a taken for a granted pattern”.
. Whether it be our close relatives, siblings, cousins or partner. Sometimes, we really love them, we can really do anything in this world to seek their validation and hear those sweet words of acceptance and that’s where you’ll understand, that if you are seeking this validation, Is the love exchanged between you two right? Is it pure? Or is it just attention deprived? Sometimes, even worse, the love turns out to be toxic, abusive or ruthless.
. I’ve realized one thing over the years, you need to have the courage to encounter the situation, where you really love the person, but you should have the courage to say, that Listen I love you, I really do, but I love myself more and I would really appreciate, not being loved at all, but at any given cost, I won’t appreciate being wrongly loved or neglected. That’s not my style.

I felt a pain inside my chest, as you uttered those words, Honestly, Words did no justice, Your actions had said it all, I was left with a trembling heart and shivering hands, Coz I knew it was too over to be over. We honestly needed a new word for over.
Maybe, I was not the best person in this world too. But, I bet, I carved my heart out for you & kept it in your hands, And that was the first time, I ever handed over my repeatedly stitched and shattered heart to anyone, And all I wanted was, for you to protect it and nurture it, And now when I get that heart back, It’s ripped, it’s broken into pieces, The pieces, that I may never get back.
I trusted you with my soul, Telling you my deepest worries, secrets, vulnerabilities and fears. And, all I ever needed was stability, understanding & honesty. Maybe, I had my faults too. We stand 50-50 here, But, the part which hurts me the most is, That I didn’t fake my promises, my vows, my faithfulness. You faked a lot of things.
And at the end, I was just left with a voice inside my heart, That this was the first and the last time I ever trusted anyone, and this won’t be happening ever again. Ever again. The same pattern. Nah, I don’t want it.
I needed a partner, but instead, I raised a kid. I made you a man & you know this. I was there for you when no one was. I was there for you when you needed me the most. And where were you hiding, when I needed you. Coz as far as I remember, I was standing alone everywhere, when I needed someone to hold my hands & tell me that everything will be alright. I was standing and fighting alone for myself everywhere.
Why should I? Why should I, give my heart to someone who didn’t care to protect it & instead just forgot, that I even had something called a heart. Coz, you know when you spoke those words & did everything you’ve been doing. Only a heartless person could take that, But I am sorry, as much as it hurts me to show the world. But, I do have a heart. And it’s a very fragile one. And you broke it. Sorry, I broke it myself, trusting you with it. I did broke it myself. But, no problem. Coz, my mind is still headstrong and I can get back again on my feets.
I see my soul communing with my body and my mind daily. My mind is a wanderer, an explorer, an empathizer, and overthinking, overloaded machine full of facts and questions all about the world and myself. A trailer of anxiety, a bundle of curiosity & an all-time carrier of information overloading. . My soul is my comforter when I seek inside my soul, I find comfort, I find peace, I find the joy and tranquillity in these tiny moments of life, which I was missing on in the hustle & bustle of the daily life. When I breathe in and exhale, my gut responds to me to be calm and patient.
