Changing Paradigms or Habits , oh those nasty habits. We developed habits from training, influences, remark, and practice. We develop many habits in our life, which some are good and others are bad. Good habits we can keep, but if one needs to improve his life the dangerous habits has to change . Getting rid of dangerous Paradigms, however, is not easy, particularly if a habit is involved. For this reason, let us take a number of steps and see how we can change this.
Happy Onam to all those who celebrate this festival which celebrates food! Onam sadya (feast) includes an array of delectable, comforting vegetarian dishes made from the choicest and freshest vegetables which include a variety of gourds, pumpkins, green beans, carrots, cabbage as well as starchy vegetables like taro root, elephant’s foot and green plantains. Coconut is an essential ingredient in almost all the dishes and coconut oil is the main cooking medium imparting so much flavor that you remain licking your fingers! Yes, you have to eat the sadya, which is served on a banana leaf, with your hands to truly savor it.It is an unique gastronomical experience involving all the senses 🙂
We are so fortunate to be able to continue this tradition even in our US home – yes we get frozen plantain leaves from our local Asian grocers and they are of a pretty good quality too! Today…

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA August 28 , 2016 10.30 P.M.
[MILESTONE : With this post, Vidur’s Film Diary enters in the 8th year of its existence. In all these 8 years, I have endured my journey with truth, tenacity and belligerence. ]
In the era of falsehood, Vidur Acting Institute has chosen the tortuous path of truthfulness. In the season of deceit, Vidur Acting Institute has taken the pledge of being factually correct. You can go through the below mentioned facts of my success story and can check and verify them.
But do check the tall claims of so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Institutes of India”. Grill the so-called “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Trainers of India” and you will see through their hollow claims. Hold a second, they can even claim that they are the…

Dear Angel Dog,
I still wake up at 4.30 A.M to the sound of mellow woofs and pillow scratching. I keep forgetting that I don’t need to take you out for your ‘early-morning rituals’ anymore. I try my best to go back to sleep, but I end up staring at our photos & crying for several hours.
You’re long gone, but the typical mushy smell of your hazel coat continues to haunt the house, its furniture, and its people. Mom stills cleans up your bowls & fills them with fresh water every single day. Dad still plans our picnics only after confirming that the hotel allows pets to stay with their owners. Little Isha still runs straight to the backyard after school, hoping to get her daily dose of slimy kisses and warm hugs. She misses you the most. She’s so heartbroken & hurt. But, she’s not alone…

The world we live in makes us wear out our bodies and minds, leaving us with health problems or with the feeling of complete exhaustion. Always in a rush, we sometimes fall into living our days on the auto-pilot mode, not being truly present, whether it’s with our family and friends, on our jobs or in the church on Sundays. Self-care is necessary in order to live a healthy balanced and fulfilling life. In order to start repairing the damages your body and mind have suffered through, consider detoxifying.
Here are five easy steps you can try to a healthier and more energized you – inside and outside.
1. Nutrition is important
Releasing toxins from your body starts from within, with a healthier nutrition. Making smarter and healthier food choices isn’t as hard as you would think – it just takes a little practice and you will easily incorporate your…

We hear of so many stories where people reach the point of rock bottom in their life. You may be one of those persons who have had such an experience and understand too well what it’s all about. But for you who have never been there, I want you to know it’s a place in your life where you feel hopeless and you are at the point of giving up on life.
You are stripped of everything, at times even your dignity. God’s presence seems far from you and nothing; I mean nothing makes sense anymore. You begin to look for a way to escape your pain in all of the wrong places and you even turn to things and people who instead of pointing you to the road of recovery and redemption, they lead you in all of the wrong things.
Time goes by and the noise of fear…

Hello to a new post! Since about 1,5 years now I’m blogging, and in this time I’ve leant a lot of knowledgege. Knowledge, I want to give to you too 🙂
1. Nothing comes from nothing
The first rule, I got to know, when I was a child. How do you want to expect anything, if you don’t do anything for it? If you don’t give 100% (most of the time 200%) you can’t expect to get 100%! Maybe you decided to build up your blog, not only as a hobby. It’s a lot of work, but it’s worth it.
2. Social Media care
You can find my blog in many social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Snapchat and so on. I often take time more hours of the day to interact with my followers. I always like back and try to reply to every comment under my pictures.
