Fight pimples the natural way

Walking into a cosmetic store or even the beauty section of any major hyper-mart or your favorite multi-brand retailor can be a nightmare for some. The staff at every brand counter is sure to hound you like a pack of wolves and make you feel that your skin is really the worst in the world. They will hail the virtues of the brands they represent without any knowledge of the chemicals that lace it or the harmful side effects that follow with long term use. 

So what is your preferable best bet to a healthy, radiant skin without really burning a hole in your pocket?  Natural alternatives and skin care remedies have been around for time immemorial. Grandmother’s formulae or “Nuskey”, beauty tips that have held their strength for countless generations are something everyone should swear by. There is really no substitute for natural remedies and this is a fact that all mother’s and grandmother’s will attest to.

Here is a quick recap of a few natural home remedies for radiant, glowing skin and freedom from acne all passed down from generation to generation which I’m sure most of us would have observed our mother’s and grandmother’s use with great success.

Using lemon juice on pimples- Lemon juice is known to be a natural disinfectant, know to fight bacteria. Applying it on the skin can rid it of bacteria. The only precaution to follow while using it is not leaving it on your skin when you step out into the sun as it is known to have bleaching effect on the skin.

Honey for great looking skin- Honey is also known for its anti-bacterial properties. Though applying honey on your skin could have adverse reactions in some cases. It is best to do a patch test before you go the whole way.

Turmeric to your rescue- Remember the yellow looking spice available in every Indian kitchen. Its uses are manifold. From being a soothing remedy for all pains with its natural pain killer properties it is also known as a very effective natural remedy for all acne related woes. Mixing some turmeric with coconut oil and applying on the skin is known to work wonders. Albeit keeping overnight could lead to yellow stains that are oftentimes difficult to get rid of.

In this fast paced world not all of us have the luxury of time to try out natural remedies at home. 
A quick fix solution to this problem is products made from natural ingredients.
 In India, the brand Vicco is a household name and a synonym for natural products.

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks? 

Doctors are guardian angles, Incarnations of God on earth to cure people
Your tireless energy and positive countenance, Like a beacon to a sinking ship bring joy in abundance.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

Eulogy for my Grandmother (Nani)

One of the hardest things a person has to do in life is write and give an eulogy on the passing away of a loved one. Last week, my Nani left for her heavenly abode and today was the prayer meeting on the Chautha (4th Day). 

I'm sharing with all of you the eulogy in the form of a poem I wrote last night for her on behalf of all her grandchildren. I share this here because paying tribute to a dear one and speaking to a packed room full of people, while keeping your emotions in check is not easy, however is inevitable.

Thank you so much for joining us in prayer this afternoon to pay homage to our beloved Nirmal Khanna. A mother is more precious than any other person. A grandmother, being a mother twice over, is closest to her grandchildren. On behalf of her grandchildren whom she adored: Ujjwal, Kamakshi, Dhruv, Akshiena and Vyomi, this poem is dedicated to our iron lady with a will of steel.
(My Nani- Nirmal Khanna)

Your loving arms Were our tranquil oasis Your radiant smile Exuded a halo …
