Do you know about your Green tea?

We all have been talking about detoxification by green tea these days. Have you ever thought from where the concept of green tea has come from ?

Few weeks back I visited a typical chineese restaurant and they served us green tea with the food we ordered. So I decided to explore more about it . Through my research I came to know about many interesting facts.

You all are well aware about the benefits of having green tea. But the interesting fact is that the not all green teas are made up of tea leaves. Green tea includes other plant products too.( Read the complete post to know more about it)

Green teas

Origin– Green tea has been originated in China. It was first made in 2737 BC during the reign of Emperor Shennong – a mythical sage. Soon drinking tea in China became the social ritual. Even in India till date , the guests are welcomed with a cup of tea ( may not be green tea always 😉)

Some of the famous Chineese teas are –

  • Lu’an Melon Seed – It has no relation with melon seed. Actually tea leaves look like melon seeds when dried and processed.
  • Chun Mee – This is also a famous green tea. It is less sweet in taste compared to other green teas.
  • Xinyang Maojian tea – It has fragnant aroma and strong floral smell.

In Japan, people gift the green tea on special occasions as they believe that it is a symbol of a good health and a long life. It is perfect gift for Valentine too. Some of the famous Japanese Green teas are –

  • Mugicha – It is famous as summertime drink in Japan . Interesting fact is , it is not made of tea leaves rather made of roasted barley infused in water. Hence , it is caffeine free.
  • Genmaicha – It is made from green tea leaves and roasted rice. Hence , slightly bitter in taste.
  • Matcha – A very famous green tea having , full of green colour due to high amount of chlorophyll present in it. It is usually in powdered form. Read more about Japanese tea here

Recently during my visit to Australia , I got a chance to have a sip of T2 Blue Sage Shoes green tea. ( T2 Tea is famous in Australia for different types of green teas and have many outlets there ). It is made from Gen Mai cha( a combination of roasted rice , green tea , popped rice) , rosehip seeds , sage , spirulina, blueberries, cornflower and sunflower petals. Isn’t it great !

So guys ! Do explore the flavours of these green teas with this tea infuser and enjoy the health benefits with all new flavours. It is easily available at very affordable prices.

My latest edition in green tea is Ginger tumeric organic green tea. What is in your cup ?

Your attitude matters in your life

#journeysays,Attitude in life ,journey of life continues #lifequotes

Yes! Attitude matters a lot.

Carrying the right attitude can have a magical impact on your life. It is only the God who knows what is written on the next page of your life. It comes in front of you once it is written. You have no eraser to erase nor you can cut and rewrite. So prepared to confront every situation that comes in your life.

As the William Shakespeare says

There is nothing either good for bad  but thinking made it so. It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

We are in a world where people criticise more than appreciate. They try to find faults in each and every task you do. They laugh when you fall and they jealous when you grow. Many a times you fall just before the finishing line. That is when they celebrate. You feel broken, tired….as if the pieces of glass shattered on the floor.

So what is in our hands ????

Attitude ! Your attitude towards these problems is your strength. It can not only the save you from the unwanted situations but brings you out from the deep troubles. Positive attitude may not solve the problem but it can make a way to do so.

Right attitude at right time brings out the stronger shade of your personality.

#journeysays

It becomes easy for you to put forward your thoughts as you enforce the other person to listen to you. The way you speak, the words you use and your tone represent your attitude.

Attitude plays an important role at your work place too.

Work becomes easier if you have a positive attitude towards your profession. Ask yourself if you are enjoying the work you are doing ? Are you striving towards the goals of your company ? Is your profession or salary is making your personal life better ? Answers to these few questions will decide the attitude towards your job or profession.

“Whatever happens, just keep smiling and lose yourself in Love” says Rumi.

Smile on your face can put the people into a big trouble specially when they have tried to hurt you . That will get confused about their actions. Such an attitude will keep you at peace , without being affected. This smile will act as a shield.

“Style is a reflection of your attitude and your personality” says Shawn Ashmore.


The attitude comes from not what you wear but how you carry yourself and present yourself in front of other. Swami Vivekananda’s iconic speech in Chicago is still in our ears. His words will always inspire the youth. He didn’t bother what he was wearing as it was different from what those people used to wear. His attitude came out rightly through his words and his personality.

“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it” says Bruce Lee.

Your attitude is what you own. You need not to look around and see how people are looking or solving the problems in their life.  Wear your own attitude. You need not to borrow from others. Your life is your own. So be the master of your life. Walk with the right attitude and see how it works for you. You have to live for yourself , not for society.

Remember what Zig Ziglar, the American author and motivational speaker said:

“It is your attitude, not your aptitude, that determines your altitude.”

There is lot to learn from this motivational speaker who always carried a positive attitude throughout the hurdles he faced in his life. His right attitude towards the life in the end gave him a success. He transformed his failures , loses and falls into the stairs to reach at the top. Failures are stepping stones to success

Such real life stories always motivates us. Another example is Dr Seuss who was rejected many a times. He turned the harsh voices of engine into words inthe ship. Nobody believed in his creative way of writing. Today he is the favourite among the children.

Are we carrying the right attitude in our life ?? Has ever the changing the attitude towards a problem changed the whole scenario??? Think about that moment !!

Shattered pieces

Broken pieces of glass , poem , positivity, poetry ,journey of life

Shattered on the floor
Few sparkling glass pieces
Each has its own story
Yet the same feeling

Afraid of sharing

Hidden in the deep dark

Away the sight ,

so eerie,with no spark

With the four walls around
Years and years passed
No one could see them
Barely got touched

On the other side of wall

Was a different story

Someone was waiting

To change the fate

A streak of light
Far from the sky
Took some pains
To make a way

Startling through the roof

Moving away the dust

Chiseled out the air

Touched the faces of those

Just touched a corner
And activated all the particles
Up and down , left n right
Kindled the dormant enery

Gave a new birth

To all those pieces

As the prismatic light

Was scattered all around.

Beach Walk from Coogee to the world famous Bondi beach

After a short visit to local market in Sydney we decided to explore the beaches in Sydney the next day.

The new day started early morning drive to Coogee beach to witness the beautiful sunrise at this beach. The Sun welcomed us by rising up from the sparkling water of the sea. The sight of bright yellow sunlight was good enough to fill our hearts with positivity, love , joy and peace on this Christmas Day

The next was to walk towards the Bondi beach. It was a stretch of about 5 – 6 kms. It includes some steep walk on stairs too. It make take around 2 to 3 hours depending upon how you want to enjoy the nature and number of halts you want to take on the way.

1. Coogee beach – The beautiful sunrise, golden carpet of sand and lush green grass.People of all ages were jogging , giving the message that no matter what your ages , you have to choose to stay fit and healthy.

After climbing few stairs and up and downs of the roads , I could see the some bushes , tall trees and big lawns. The sounds of waves and someone playing violin sitting beside the sea shore, what else you want the nature to give it to you.

The rocks on the shores with some stills of water was giving an amazing view.

2.  Clovelly beach – Wearing our hats and sunglasses , we reached to our next beach. The stretch of sand and the clear blue water. Now , I could see the people swimming in the bay with their kids. I bet you can’t see such a neat and well maintained beaches anywhere in the world. This beach is having a separate pool for the kids too.

The scenic beauty can’t be described in words nor with pictures. On the way to next beach is a big Waverly Cementary.  It is an heritage-listedcemetery on top of the cliffs at Bronte . It is regularly cited as being one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. The cemetery contains the graves of many significant Australians including the poet Henry Lawson.

Just before the Bondi beach , there is tourist spot. Stand there and move your head from left to right , you will see only the shiny shimmery silver water hugging the clouds in the sky.

4. Tamarama beach – You can enjoy the surfing on the high waves , do swimming ., Play volleyball or simply bathe in the sun.

5. Bondi beach- Finally, we reached at our destination ‘ Bondi Beach ‘. Now I could find the reason why Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s visit to this beach. The beauty of this beach is undefined. All you could see is people bathing in Sun and surf boards. (  I couldn’t capture the Bondi beach that day, will update soon ).

Travel adventure to the Emerald city – Sydney

After a long tiring travelling , finally we reached Sydney. The moment I stepped out from the airport I witnessed clear blue skywith some fluffy white clouds floating in the sky. The tall green trees were complimenting the blue . No tall buildings or flats but small cottages on the roadsides were enough to tell the story of this city.

The fresh , pollution free air gave some relaxation to my whole body which was feeling so suffocating and deprived of fresh oxygen being in the flight mode.

After having lunch and a short nap , we decided to explore the near by market in the evening . Since the next two days market will be closed due to Christmas , so we went to collect the daily needs.

Present Education System creating only clerical level employees

Indian education system need to develop more  critical thinking and entrepreneurial skills in young generation 

Recently I have started a project and asked the people to express their opinions towards how our Education System can become better and the areas which need improvement. 

After the first succesful interview , here comes another interview with a women who is well known in Indian Blogging community. She needs no introduction. Do read what she has to say.

  • Tell us something about yourself ( Introduce yourself )

Answer: I am Romila and I began blogging in 2004, anonymously with couple of experimenting pen names, till I zeroed in Novemberschild. Since then till today I have set up and edited many blogs, managed online communities and blogged professionally. My writing has developed from personal musings to social issues, reviews, creative writing and digital content for businesses and more. I’ve been writing since the year 1996 – prose, poetry, stories and articles. My content is globally on many platforms in form of updates, blog posts, guest notes and photographs. Professionally I help brands to promote themselves on social media and digital platforms through hosting chats/developing website content. When I’m not writing for my website or magazines or tweeting, there’s a good chance you’ll find me reading a good book, sipping coffee, listening to ghazals, colouring, watching movies or even sleeping.

  • These days children prefer to go abroad for higher education after 12th standard. What could be the reason for it ? Where are we lacking in terms of education?

Answer: There are a few things that comes to my mind. A) Peer pressure B) Glamour of studying abroad C) Lack of good Institutes. Though this has been improved in recent times but still a lot is required to retain the brain drain.

  • Unemployment is a big issue for the young generation. How can the society and education play its role in it ?

Answer: Our current education system is not meant for real job. It creates only clerical level employees. We need more into critical thinking, entrepreneurial skills. We need a system where kids can grow to their potential.

  • Every now and then we read about the students struggling with anxiety and depression and committing suicide. Can you suggest few measures to be taken regarding this concern ?

Answer: Anxiety, depression, suicide is mostly related to lack of career paths for the students or in better words less knowledge about the paths available in the system. We only know either Engineer or a Doctor. If a kid is not in that path then he is fit for nothing. Parents are culprits in making kids believe that there is nothing apart from these two paths.

  • What should be the role of parents in Education ?

Answer: They need to help kids find their own path based on their interests and not force them on the beaten paths. They need to encourage kids develop a rounded personality.

  • What changes you want to see in Education System in the coming years ?

Answer: A better skill based education system where rote memorisation should be of past. It should develop the entrepreneurial mindset and scientific attitude towards the problems.

  • What inspired you to get associated with this Project ?

Answer: With ageing population if the world India has a great potential to lead the world with skills and manpower. But to tap that opportunity we need education system which not only inculcates the hard skills but also the soft skills. I feel it is out duty to ensure that our kids are trained for the future and also grounded in their culture of Bahujan Hitay bahujan sukhay. We need major change in our education system where our next generation is not mass produced as a clerk but as a leader.

  • Given a chance what will be the first thing you will change and why ?

Answer: Change the education from memorising to project based education, where kids need to learn what is required to complete the given project. This will increase their interest into the given subjects and also show them the practicality of what they are studying.

Thank you Romila for interacting with us on this topic. Indeed the  education must  develop entrepreneurial mindset and scientific attitude to the young generation and produce the leaders for future.

When you need to hide your emotions

There are many situations come in our  life when we have to hide our emotions. Hiding the emotions sometimes is not easy. Your face tells exactly what you are going through.

Hiding emotions , journey of life continues, life quotes and inspiration
Hiding the emotions sometimes is not easy. It is hurting and painful , still one has to do at times. 

Should we hide what we are feeling???

Yes , at times. You can not take your worries and problems to your work place and vice versa. Exploding your feelings at wrong place and wrong time can worsen the situation. In such case you must wait for the right moment.

Hiding the emotions is important in certain positions e.g if you are announcing the names of contestants in a competition. You can not bring a positive or negative expressions on your face.

Is hiding the emotions or feelings is difficult?

For some it is very easy. There are people who are always give a blank expression. They know how to maintain neutral face expressions. You can’t judge by their body language or face.
You must have seen an employee coming out from the Boss’office appears perfectly happy or normal giving you no idea what has happened in the closed cabin. May be that person has got good scolding from the boss , yet comes out very normal. Such people are good at hiding emotions. On the other side, there are people who comes out from the office with wet eyes as they are poor at hiding emotions. They express the same through their face as they are feeling.

Hide only to get away from unwanted situation

Do express when you are full of emotions and convey your feelings. Say it now as you never know you get an other chance. Not every time you have to hide your emotions.
You have to do so when you know the situation may get worse. There are times when people may take the advantage of your feelings to fulfil their motives. In such a case you must know how to hide your emotions.

PS – Whether to express or hide your emotions depends on the situation. You are the best judge of your life. Hence decide yourself what you want to do.
And yes ! Do express yourself in the comment section about this article.
