Mumbai

Received this as an SMS, but is so true, sharing with everyone. Enjoy!!!

Mumbai is rich,
Mumbai is poor.
Mumbai is fast,
Mumbai is slow.
Little bit sweet,
and little bit sour,
Sometimes it’s hot
but not too more’.

Mornings are energetic
and evenings are electric.
Noons are lazy but
Nights are crazy..
And any one you ask,
he always say “M busy”
Dude, life in Mumbai”
Is not so easy…!

There is lot of Masti with
little bit of Maska…
Welcome to the city
that can’t live, without Bollywood Chaska.!

Sev puri and bhel puri
are all Mumbai chaat..
Relishing it with spicy chutney is no easy art..
From popcorn to ice-cream, all sold on cart,
Mumbai o Mumbai you’re always close to my heart.!

Where local trains
usually run on time,
And violently rushing
for a seat is not a crime..

Here 3 PM for lunch and
12 AM to dine,
People face hardships,
but still say “it’s fine”.!

From Mt. Mary in Bandra
to Mumba Devi in Town,
And ISKCON in Juhu to Haji Ali in Mumbai’s Crown,

Marathi, Punjabi, Gujarati and Bengali,
Everyone together celebrate Id and Diwali,
Holi is colorful and Christmas is cheerful,
Spend some time here and your life will be unforgetful.!

Billionaire to beggars,
all found in this city,
Be careful dude,
this place is a bit witty..,
Overall this dream-world
is huge but pretty,
Mumbai o Mumbai,
you’re wonderful city.

Because…
she is like mother to millions.

After all a mother is called,

MUM in English,
BA in Gujarati &
AI in Marathi.

Thats MUMBAI….????

Ganesh Chaturthi 2013 with Eco-Friendly Idols

www.greenIdols.in, www.meghasays.com, whoisdeep.com, ecofriendly ganpati, ganpati 2013, ecofriendly decoration, ecofriendly, ganpati, ganesh,

Ganesh Chaturthi is just two months away from now, and this year apart from asking everyone just to buy the Ecofriendly Clay Idols, I have planned to sell the idols too,

So buy it… but from me. 😉

As mentioned last year, I am planning to sell the Ecofriendly Ganesh Idols in 2013,

Please check the photos here: Eco-Friendly Ganesh Idols for now, this is the official site of the founders who introduced Ecofriendly Ganesh Idols,

Once everything is finalised, I will definitely be putting a separate page for Ganesh Idols Booking details,

As we still have time to officially book the idols, please leave a comment with your Email ID and the name of your favorite Ganesh Idol from the above mentioned link, here if you wish to book one for yourself, you will definitely be assisted with information for booking,

Also, if I am not selling the idols, here is the list of places where you can book your Ganesh Idol for this year : Eco Friendly Ganesh Idol Booking Store List

I would love to know your ideas and suggestions on this,

So, Leave a comment.

For quick updates on Eco-Friendly Ganesh Booking, follow here: Facebook: http://on.fb.me/141BkY8

Ganesh Festival is here, did you book your Eco Friendly Ganpati ?

Such a promotional title, isn’t it ?

I would say I am actually promoting Eco Friendly Ganesh Idols, No, I don’t sell Eco Friendly Idols, but I am just trying to contribute a little to the environment.

Everyone is aware about the bad condition of the water after the immersion of POP Idols, so why not buy Clay Idols ? you can immerse it in sea and nothing will go wrong,

Please buy Clay or Paper Mash Idols and help the environment, help yourself to be healthy, because the same water comes in your tap for drinking, which will affect your health,

If not about environment, not about your family, than think about yourself, do you want to live your life with medicines or natural way ?

Monkey Orchid

 

Surprising, Isnt it ?, even I was surprised when I saw the photo of this flower,

Here is a bit of information about this wonderful Flower,

Monkey Orchid, Scientific name “Dracula simia” come from the south-eastern Ecuadorian and Peruvian cloud forests from elevations of 1000 to 2000 meters,

The orchid was named in 1978 by the botanist Luer but is in a family containing over 120 species mostly found in Ecuador.

Monkey orchid can flower at any time, it needs same treatment as normal orchids, they need to be kept more in shade and needs less of water, these Orchids are not season specific, Its smell resembles that of a ripe orange.

Here are couple of photos of Monkey Orchid,
