My Brother- My mentor

A brother sister relationship is a very beautiful yet quite a complex relationship.The same brother who used to fight with her sister and the sister who used to irritate her brother during childhood gradually turn out to be each others best friend as time passes. And the same happened with us.

As a child my brother and I used to irritate each other a lot. But as time passed we started understanding each other.My brother is 4 years elder to me and since the time I have started understanding him, I have started respecting him not only because he is my brother but also because he is that person to whom I could look up to whenever I am in need and whose actions and wisdom motivate me to work harder.

My brother is brilliantly intelligent.As a child he was not only good in studies but also in extra curricular activities like poem recitation and athletics.He was very laborious which motivated me to work harder in every sphere.So I also started participating in various cultural activities and this  helped me a lot in my all round development.

My brother has this habit of finishing every activity he takes up.He would not leave any work unfinished and this made me wonder how can he have so much of patience to sit through the entire work.I was a very impatient girl but it was my brother whose patient attitude changed my outlook and I started emulating him.It was very difficult for me at the beginning and I used to give up very easily.But then my brother told me that in order to succeed in life you have to love your work.And that passion was the reason behind his success.Even in doing small work he used to put in so much of effort that it was incredible.I tried everyday to be like him, to put so much of effort into all my work and even after so many years I have not yet completely succeeded.

As a brother he always protected me from all odds and never let any bad vice come into me.He would guide me like a mentor and teach me things which would help not only academically but also in my all round development.Whatever he couldn't achieve, he wished me to achieve and for that wish to come true he would give me proper guidance.He always boosted my confidence and never discouraged me in doing anything.

His wisdom and his knowledge are an awesome combination which has helped me in taking many important decisions of my life.His perfectionist attitude is though sometimes irritating but is very useful in the long run.I try to inculcate his habit of planning everything out and managing everything beforehand and have also succeeded a bit but I have a long way to go.

I am lucky to have an elder brother like him who not only guides me as a mentor but also supports me and protects me like a father.

My Father my role model

Everybody has a role model in there life's.One who inspires them, motivates them and in turn make them a good human being.A role model is a person whose actions you try to emulate and whose values and advices you try to inculcate in yourself.In your most difficult times you derive your strength from that person.He is the source of your energy and gives a meaning to your dreams.

My father is that person in my life who was also my hero.His immense energy and passion towards his work left me amazed even as a child.And as I grew up that amazement changed into respect and then into inspiration.Seeing him worship his work made me realise the importance of genuiness and seriousness towards my own work.He never used to be late to work, instead he would prefer to be early rather than late.Even today I have this habit of being punctual to everywhere I go.Time management has helped me a lot in life and I have turned into a better person.

Not only professionally but also personally his actions and advices has made a great impact on my life. Being a professor himself, he never pressurized me to get good grades.He always advised me to be an all-rounder.From dancing to singing to elocution to debating, I participated in all extra cirricular activities and still maintained good grades.He would take me to dance classes as he knew my interest lies in dancing and he fully allowed me to pursue my passion.

As a father , he never distinguished between my brother and I.It was after I came to college that I realised that many girls were subjected to such discrimination at home where there brothers recieved preferential treatment and they didn't.That day I started to respect my father more.His immense love for his family is the base of our family.He made me realise that money and materialistic things can never replace the happiness we recieve from being with our family.It was he who made me understand the importance of relationships and family bonds.

His sheer dedication towards every aspect of life is something that I crave to have in my life.Even in the most difficult of times he manages to keep calm and try to find a solution which is for the good of all.His faith in ALMIGHTY is unbreakable and undescribable.Sometimes I feel that he derives all his energy from GOD Himself.But whatever that is , that energy and zest is out of this world.And this energy is my inspiration.His"never lose hope "attitude and never say die attitude are the mantras which guides my life.Whatever I will achieve in life is because I have a mentor,guide and a father like him.He was ,he is and will always be my first hero.

8 ways in which ASUS transformed my life

In today's hectic world, everyone is on the move either for work or for personal reasons.A major part of our day's time is spent on traveling and it is totally on us as to how we wish to use that time.

Being a student a large part of my day is spent on traveling as my college is around 17 km from my house and the easiest way to reach is through metro. A minimum of two to two and and a half hours is spent on traveling daily.

In the beginning I had no clue as to how to spend my time so I used to listen to the conversations women had regarding their marital life, office pressure and  daily household chores. After a while I realized that listening to those people I was actually wasting my time. So I decided to do something productive.

Getting ASUS Transformer book T100 at that time was the best thing that happened to me. After getting the ASUS T100 my life changed drastically.

 Being a portable laptop which could be transformed into a tablet was its USP. And this feature helped in making my travel journey by metro not only bearable but also productive.

8 ways in which my boring journey by metro turned into an awesome one -

1. Listening to music - When I used to listen to music by my phone I could only listen to the few songs which were on my playlist and so, within a month I literally had memorized all the songs in my playlist. But after getting Asus T100 I no longer had to depend on my phone's playlist. Its convertable tablet feature helped me to carry it while traveling by metro. With 2GB RAM and 32 GB EMMC storage capacity I no longer had to be content with few songs. I now have a whole new folder for music with over 200 songs ranging from old classics to new Bollywood songs. So after plugging in my earphones I no longer have to listen to the daily gossips of girls and I just get lost in my own world of music with the help of my ASUS T100.

2. Playing games - If anything I love after listening to music is playing games and ASUS T100 made playing games a lot more fun. Whenever I used to play games on my phone its battery used to die in no time. But with the ASUS tablet I no longer have to face this problem as it has an amazing battery life of 11 hours which keeps me connected and always in action. 

With the ASUS Instant On and Microsoft InstantGo technology, the ASUS Transformer Book T100 is always ready to perform which makes it an amazing gaming console. I could install as many games as I want and play them while traveling in metro. Making new scores and challenging people online for new games is so much fun now.

3. Complete pending work - ASUS T100 has MS Office already installed in it which makes completing pending work easier to do. I can finish my pending project even while I am traveling with the help of MS Word and Excel. Making presentations was never so much fun as it is now. With Intel HD graphics, making presentations in MS Power Point is a truly different experience as the graphs and charts looks more vivid and expressive.

4. Portability -  The most important feature of this tablet is that it can be used as a laptop and also as a tablet. So it makes carrying it anywhere easier. Whenever I want to use it as My laptop I can do that and carry it because of its ultra light feature and when I have to use it as a tablet I transform my laptop into a tablet.This has made my life on the move very easier. I don't have to carry heavy laptops while traveling and my tablet is so light that it hardly creates any problem. It easily fits in my bag and I don't have to carry any extra laptop bag which would add to my luggage.

5. Carry all my documents - Even when I don't carry my laptop all my documents are still with me as I have my tablet. So I never have to worry about leaving documents at home. All my projects and my research papers are always with me even when I am traveling. My pictures , my music and all my database is just a touch away  and is easily accessible whenever I need them.

6. Super fast processor - With Intel® Atom quad core processor all my work and programs are completed in no time. This helps me both while playing and working. My games move gracefully and all my work is completed with the help of a single click.So I don't have to wait for hours for my game to load or for my file to open. ASUS T100 completes all my work faster.

7.Windows 8 - ASUS T100 features windows 8.1 which makes it easier to download apps which could be used even while using it as a tablet. This device is well suited to perform day to day computing chores.The whole design of the tablet is so sleek and brilliant that it pleases the eye.It has durable rubber which makes it portable and guarantees that it will never slip from your hand.

8. Connectivity - With this tablet I am always connected to all the social networking sites. Having a battery life of 11 hours helps in keeping me connected with the rest of the world. Facebook and Twitter are the two most important social networking sites which has now become an important part of our lives. I can not only chat with my friends on Facebook but also be updated about world events and important news with the help of twitter. 


Lastly, I want to say that in this 21st century everything is about technology. Our lives are governed by the kind of technology we use.So by using a laptop cum tablet like ASUS Transformer Book T100we choose to lead a better and easier life.

Secret of modern day Rapunzel's long hair

Rapunzel Rapunzel open your long and shiny hair,
 and let the prince use it as a stair,
To climb the tall and mighty tower
to take you away from the wicked witches power.

Having long hair like Rapunzel was always my dream
and being born into a traditional Bengali family
i had very less to do
to make my dream come true.

Daily Oiling and two times shampooing
Proper conditioning and 
Regular combing
had somewhere become part of my daily routine.

When I started going to school
My mother never allowed me keep my hair loose
She warned me of the sun's damaging rays
Which would take away my hair's grace.

I listened to all her advice
and kept my hair clean from lice.
Soon my hair started becoming long
and in no time they were strong.

Coming to college was totally different,
Coloured hair was the new trend.
Ironing and curling was a daily affair
But all this took a toll on my hair.

Somewhere I was forgetting my mother's advice,
As keeping hair open was part of my college life.
Bad management and nourishment had its effects
As I started noticing split ends.

My hair started growing thin
And was losing its charm
My friends said that it was
Split ends which was doing all the harm.

I saw no solution
Except to cut my hair
But it was beyond imagination
As it was more than just my hair.

It was our family's tradition
My parent's pride
It was my childhood's  dream
how could i let it die?

With no help from anywhere
I turned to my mother
Who like always
Had a solution with her.

So I asked a friend to lend it.
After the first wash only I could see its effect
My split ends were harder to detect.

Tresemme had done its share
My split ends are no more there.
My hair is now soft, smooth and straight
And having such beautiful hair feels great.

Tresseme Split Remedy Shampoo Review

Tresemme gives you salon like treatment
So you don't need to make appointments.
It saves you from cutting your hair
Reminding you that your hair also needs care.

I no longer have broken bonds
Its like someone has used a magic wand.
My hair feels alive and fresh
as my hair is freed from split ends.

Since childhood I wanted to have hair like Rapunzel. Whenever I used to see her photos in the fairy tales I wished to have beautiful long golden locks like her.I was spellbound the way her hair was combed and managed.I grew up hearing her stories.And as I grew up a little, I realized that all my aunts and my mother were real life Rapunzel(except for the fact that they had jet black hair). My mother started taking great care of my hair and told me how keeping long hair was our family's tradition.My happiness knew no bounds as my childhood dream of having long hair was finally going to be true. My mother regularly combed my hair and always tied it into plaits. I was not allowed to keep my hair open in the afternoon due to the fact that sun would damage my hair and also not allowed to keep my hair open in the evening due to our tradition. So the only time I could keep my hair open was during the morning and it was then when i used to enact Rapunzel's story. I never complained about the fact that I couldn't try out new hairstyles(being a school girl I didn't have much option as well) as I was happily enjoying my Rapunzel's role.

However, going to college and shifting to a new place was different.I no longer had the opportunity to treat my hair with the same care which it was accustomed to.Initially each and every girl in my hostel complemented me on my beautiful hair.However as time passed my hair started losing its shine.

You could blame it on a hectic schedule, people's jealousy or just carelessness on my part but the result was that my hair started to have split ends.Regular ironing and curling and also opening hair in the sun were taking a toll on my hair and its effects were drastic.I remembered my mother's advice and regretted my careless attitude. Hair also needs proper care to grow like any other being.And if you stop showing her love,affection and care she too would start to perish.

My friends suggested that I would either have to cut my hair short or would have to go to a salon for a hair treatment.The first option was beyond my imagination, so I decided to go with the second option.Next day I went to a salon and asked if they could help me with my problem.They replied in affirmative but the only problem was that their tariff was more than my monthly allowance.After trying all the possible ways and getting no help from anywhere I called up my mother for help. She silently listened to all my problems and at last said " I have a solution to all your problems.I have a magic wand that will remove your broken bonds and make your hair like Rapunzel again.Its not expensive and fits in your budget.Use Tresemme split remedy shampoo and conditioner and get freedom from all your problems".


I borrowed from my friend Tresemme split remedy shampoo and after one wash I could feel its effect.My hair didn't feel like a broomstick anymore. It was soft and bouncy and felt great to touch.

After a week I was supposed to come home.And when I did, to my surprise I found that my mother had ordered split remedy shampoo and conditioner by Tresemme for review from indiblogger.

I was thrilled to see the new packed shampoo and couldn't wait to use it.After 3 washes I could hardly notice the split ends and was greatly relieved as my hair was brought back to life again.

The shampoo like my mother had said helped in removing my split ends upto 95% without going to any expensive salon or using scissors on my hair.I now my beautiful long hair like Rapunzel and I am extremely grateful to Tresemme for fulfilling my childhood dream. 

The shampoo and conditioner are so gentle that they could be used on a daily basis.It not only helps fight split ends but also brings back the lost luster and manages the texture of the hair.My hair smells so good after shampooing that it acts as an added advantage.

I now recommend this shampoo to all my friends and acquaintances who have problem regarding split ends.

kolkata knight riders: winner of ipl 7

History was created
As the finale ended
Kkr won the ipl cup
Beating punjab who were on the top.

Shahrukh is on the 7th cloud,
So is the entire kolkata,
We have reason to be happy,
And also to be proud.

Pandey's hard work
Gambhir's patience
Everything fell in place
As the knight riders did it again.

Every player showed their mettle
And in their own way contributing to the battle
Korbo lorbo jeetbo re was justified,
As kkr emerged victorious after a tough fight.
