Indoor plants for fresh air

Keeping plants in our home isn’t a new thing. We often grow plants both inside and outside our home in order to make the place look more beautiful and have a touch of nature. But did you know that some plants can actually be good for the health of you and your family?

Yes, there are certain plants that help maintain climate and purify the air. And we should have one or two of these in order to get cleansed air that we breathe inside the home. Not just they purify the air but also maintain the climate around the house.

Things to do This Father’s Day

Special days like Mother’s Days and Father’s Day are celebrated every year in the whole world. No matter what country you are from, you want to celebrate these days as mothers and fathers are always special. All mothers do a lot for their children and this is why we always have plans for our mother in mind. This is also because we all are close to our mother the most and we know what she wants.

In the same light, we should prepare a full-fledged plan for our father, too. Well, we are sure you do but this article might help you think out of the box about the role that your Dad plays in your life. He needs to know that you care and understand him.

Here, we have 8 things you should do with father on this Father’s Day.

1. View your childhood pictures together over a cup of coffee

This is the best way to tell him that you appreciate all those things he ever did for your upbringing. Your first birthday, or many more memories that he has captured. Just tell him that you believe he is a great Dad. Believe us, it is all he would ever want to hear.2

2. Plan a trip to the place he spent his childhood at

Fathers are not very good at showing emotions. But if you want to see some, just take him down the memory lane. He will give you so many childhood stories to cherish throughout your life.

3. Write him a card that says you know he loves you

As we said earlier, fathers are not good at being emotional. So, this is your responsibility to make it easy for him; he might not say it to you very often but you always know that he loves you. So, take a pen and make him feel heaven by telling him that you know he loves you a lot and he means the world to you.

4. Make reservations for your Dad and Mom at some place fancy

There are chances that your father never got time to take your mother out to some fancy place. But he must have always wanted to do so. Why shouldn’t you do him a favor by making dinner reservations for both of them to have a lifetime experience?

5. Spend time with him

If you are busy son or daughter, chances are your father always wanted to sit beside you and just talk. So, do this for him this Father’s Day. Share, laugh, hug and talk because he may never ask you for this but he always wanted to.

6. Gift him Caravan Radio if you haven’t already

All Dads love to tune into old songs. They feel highly nostalgic when they listen to the songs they used to tune into in his childhood. Caravan radio has all the hit Bollywood songs of old times. It’s for the love of classics!

7. Plan a trip for him

If your father loves to travel then plan a whole trip dedicated to him. To pamper him, make him relax and say thank you for everything he ever did for you.

8. Give him a day off

If your father is still working and has a quite busy schedule. The best gift you can ever give to your father is to give him a day off completely for himself. Ask him what his hobbies used to be. What is the idea of perfect leisure for him, and just let him do that? Gift him a day, devoid of all the responsibilities, away from work, without the tensions, no matter if he wants to just lie down the whole day.

9 Dress Codes Around The World That Would Leave You Wonderstruck for Sure

9 Dress Codes Around The World

Our attire plays a major role in our life. What do we wear and how do we look to make a lot of difference. Clothing is one of the necessities for today’s lifestyle. We simply cannot see ourselves without a perfect wardrobe dedicated to our choice of clothes. But what if we tell you that there are somewhat strange dress codes that people are bound to wear despite choice and style?

Well, you read it ride. In this article, we are going to make you aware of 9 strange or surprising dress codes that are worn by people around the world.

Some of them might just leave you in bewilderment so be prepared.

1. Women cannot wear trousers in North Korea

via: UPI

Okay, how would all the women out there feel if we tell you that women in North Korea women are not allowed to wear trousers? Hopeless, right? Well, think about the women of Korea now. This is right, in fact, in 2014 about 40 women were slammed for wearing slacks. Could it be any sadder, ladies?

2. Women in Uganda can’t wear miniskirts or low cleavage

Yeah, right. Where one country lashes out women for wearing trousers, another country restricts them to wear fancy revealing clothes. In Uganda, it is outrageous, like, pornography. Naturally, women in Uganda are protesting against this law. And then some people say feminism is overrated.

3. Colour restriction for a library stall in Sevierville, Tennessee

Isn’t that sound rather weird that staff members of a county library in Sevierville are allowed to wear only five colors? They can wear, grey, white, cream and purple. The question is, why purple?

4. Some historical sites in Greece prohibit entry of high heels

Another place that is heels- phobic. Some historical sites in Greece believed that high heels cause problem to the preserved historical sites, so, they came up with the idea of banning heels inside.

5. Men in Sudan can’t cross-dress

So, here is something for men, too. Saudi government raided a party just to arrest the men in cross-dressing and with the makeup on. They were criminalized for behaving like women. So now see where the problem is; some countries are still homophobic.

6. No collarbones

Well, this might leave you bewildered totally. According to metro.co.uk, in Woodford Country High School, Kentucky, Stephanie Hughes was sent back to home because her dress showed her collarbones. Her mother was called by the principal for such an incident.

7. Men cannot wear long hair

While women were punished for wearing trousers, men in North Korea are not allowed to have hair more than 5 cm. Not only that, they need to trim their hair every 15 days. We can understand the pain of young men and women in North Korea.

8. France doesn’t allow covered faces in public

In 2010 a law was passed that banned hijabs. Not just the “burkha” but covering complete is banned including with a helmet, hoods, etc. In fact, in 2014 a case which was against this rule was rejected by European Court of Human Rights, the verdict said that uncovered faces encourage “living together”.

9. Traditional clothes while at work in Bhutan

In Bhutan, people are bound to wear their traditional clothes while they are at work. This law is equal for both men and women. We feel that it is a way to show respect towards their work and also towards the country. But, doesn’t it restrict a person’s choice of clothing to wear at work? Just like the Tennessee library.

Hill Stations Flooded with Tourists Get Overcrowded Leading Them to Return

Hill Stations Flooded with Tourists Get Overcrowded

In India, summer vacation means a family trip to Shimla or Nainital or Mussoorie or Manali or anywhere cold. People from all over India visit hill stations especially in May and June. Not just because of the kids’ vacation but also because scorching heat and humid weather (special northern region) make everyone want to leave the city and find some relief in the hilly areas. In Delhi NCR, recently maximum temperature recorded reached 50 degrees. Where will the man hide from the Sun?

Who would not wish to spend some calm days amidst the high hills and cold weather in the month of June?

And why not? –with such escalating heat and torturing the Sun everyone wants to hide from the sun. And this is why tourists have flooded the colder regions like never before. But this has caused problem not just to the locals but also for themselves.

This is no surprise that places like Shimla have become overcrowded that even hotels are forced to put up banners to plead tourist to not to come to Shimla for a while. Shimla is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the summer season.

Every year thousands of people come to Shimla and Nainital daily to have a splendid vacation. But this time, the maximum number of tourists swarmed to Shimla and Nainital that they had to return because of overcrowding in the Hill station. How often do we get to hear that?

Overcrowding resulted in so many problems to so many levels.

It left the roads jammed with too much traffic, most of the hotels are fully booked and ceased to take any further booking. Parking places are full in a way that any vehicle entering Shimla has to go back to the respective city. Now, at these consequences who would wish to respite in such an overcrowded place.

To reduce the congestion in the peal season, Nainital tourist administration has decided to stop the entry of the tourists till the parking is full. Only that can help them manage traffic problems.

It is not only this year, but this is also the story of the hill station every year.

People flood in a huge number that locals find it hard to manage the day to day life. Last year this time Shimla faced severe water crises. It causes inconvenience to both the tourists and the locals. There was no water in the entire Shimla for eight straight days. Seems like there is a thing called too much tourism.

This is not just the case with the most popular destination like Shimla, Nainital or Manali. The congestion, non-availability, and overcrowding have become major issues even in the remote hamlets like Kasol.

People used to go to Kasol to find solace for the hustle-bustle of city life.

To find oneself amidst the lush green trees and dense forests. But now, maximum people flood in all the time in order to party. Roads of such quiet places are no more remained quiet. We can spot SUVs honking and congesting roads. People making a mess and throwing trash almost everywhere.

We believe remote places like Manali, Kasol, and other hamlets should be left for trips that bring peace and not “fun” and stuff. Let some roads be less traveled, let some paths be unpaved.

Well, seems like how to manage too much tourism is yet a question or maybe a new challenge for the governments.
