Nihar Naturals Shanti Amla's Pathsala Funwala initiative

There was a time when English was not a language that has to be learnt for sure. But now it is must to know English. Learning English is no longer a luxury. It is a basic need of every child to learn English as they have to communicate to people from different part of India. Be it Bangalore or Chennai, you can find a lot of people having different mother tongues. Even in schools, children are from different part of India who speaks different Indian languages. It was not the case when I was studying. The necessity for speaking English used to raise only after I got to work. But it is no more the case. The need for learning English starts from the day the child starts making his/her own friends.

I have been seeing maids who understands and speak little bit of English are preferred by the people from other regions. Even people prefer shopkeepers to speak and understand English to some extent so that their shopping gets easy.

In the current scenario, I wish every child gets a chance to learn English easily. Unfortunately, not everyone can join their kids in schools which teach them English. But here comes a good news for all the parents who wishes their children to have access to learn English. Nihar Naturals Shanti Amla, a leading hair oil in the country has always had purpose at its heart. It has come with an excellent initiative called 'Pathsala Funwala' which aims to make education accessible, anywhere anytime. There is a toll free number which you can share with the children who wants to learn English through this initiative.

Nihar Shanti Amla's Pathsala Funwala toll free number - 80556 67788.

This is the right service to learn English in a very simple and easy way. You have to connect to the toll free number to experience the simplicity.

Do I have any benefit with this service? Yes, now I can recommend all the people I know who want their children to learn English. It is a kind of service that we can do for their children and expect their happiness in return.

I am going to store the toll free number right away in my mobile. I am going to recommend about Nihar Naturals Shanti Amla's Pathsala Funwala initiative to everyone so that the information can reach the deserving children. Let every child enjoy learning English in a simple way. I definitely hope that it can benefit them enormously for their good future. Hope you will also store the toll free number and recommend their service to everyone. Have a fun weekend. Bye.

Preethi Zodiac Review - best mixer grinder with Juicer and food processor

Preethi Zodiac Review - Best mixer grinder with Juicer and food processor:

It has been 8 months since I have started this amazing, high-end Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder with juicer and food processor. In short, I totally love it except the high noise it produces especially when I make orange juice:( Otherwise, it is worth every penny you spend on it. In fact, it is better than buying a juicer, mixer grinder and food processor separately. This Preethi Zodiac review will help you to take informed decision if you have Preethi Zodiac in your wishlist.

I would like to highlight here that we have bought Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder with food processor model for my sister too as she is about to enter her marriage life very soon. This can show you the confidence and satisfaction level I have on  this Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder model.

Before going into the Preethi Zodiac Review, let me tell you one thing, there are 2 models comes under the name 'Preethi Zodiac'. One is with food processor and another one is without food processor. If you do not want food processor(I do highly recommend to buy one with food processor since you have to pay only 2000-3000 extra to get a food processor model which can do kneading dough, grating, chopping, citrus juicing, slicing etc), you can select the basic model of Preethi Zodiac. If you want to simplify the above-mentioned tasks too, then go for Preethi Zodiac mixer grinder with food processor model without second thought.

Preethi Zodiac Review - Preethi food processor, mixer grinder and juicer all-in-one model:

Preethi Zodiac is one of the latest multipurpose mixer grinder model from Preethi which can perform the following functions.

  • Atta kneading - I mostly knead my atta in it. You can knead almost 300 grams in a shot. The atta:water is 1:0.5 approximately. I just add atta and salt and then run it for a second. Then I add water and run till I get the job done. I give 5 star rating for this functionality.
  • Citrus Press - It does the job. No complaints. In fact, I am happy to extract as it extracts as much juice as possible. As a side note, the noise irritates :(
  • Chopping, slicing and grating - Definitely useful for every woman. No complaints. Do not expect to cut the vegetables into exact cube-sized. If you don't worry about the shape, you will absolutely love it for saving your time and energy.
  • Centrifugal Juicer , super extractor and blender - You can extract the juices completely. You can even use it for extracting tamarind juices and coconut milk. Lassi and milkshakes are the other beverages you can make easily in addition to juices.
There is an overload indicator light. If you overload the mixer grinder, the light will change from blue to red. The motor will be tripped and you have to reset the overload protector.

It has been mentioned in the Preethi website that you can even grind turmeric in 2 minutes. I am yet to try that.

Preethi Zodiac comes with 2 years warranty. The motor comes with 5 years warranty. As you all know, it comes with free lifetimes service.

Surf Excel Matic Liquid Detergent Review

Surf Excel Matic Liquid Detergent Review:


By Sangeetha.

Review on Surf excel matic liquid detergent – Top load Surf excel has been one of the familiar brand in the producing detergents for cleaning the clothes. Their recent release on Surf excel matic liquid was a very tempting one to buy. The shape of the bottle with an attractive color on it was making me eager to buy the product. The normal surf excel liquid can be used for washing clothes by hand or by washing machine. The recent one is exclusively designed for washing clothes in washing machine. 



Surf Excel Matic Liquid Detergent Review:

There are two different Surf Excel liquids for top load and front load washing machine. The green bottle is for the top load washing machine and the purple bottle is for the front load washing machine. These liquids cannot be used for hand washing of clothes, you have a different liquid from surf excel available for washing clothes by hands. 

The Surf Excel Matic Liquid detergent bottle has a different look and shape and it is very easy to handle. There is also a measuring cup coming with the bottle which helps you to measure the right amount of liquid for the clothes.

The liquid comes in blue color and dissolves very well with the clothes when mixed with the water. All you have to do is, put the desired amount of clothes into the washing machine. If there is any tough statin pour a little amount of liquid on the stain are and rub it with the back side of the measuring cap that comes with the bottle. This will help in relieving the stain from the cloth. Other than that you can put the clothes in the washing machine, pour a required amount of liquid to the cap provide and then pour it into the washing machine. 

You can wash a lots of clothes with a small amount of liquid. One full cap of liquid will be used for full load of clothes. The best part of this liquid is its fragrance, it has a very mid fragrance that gives a pleasant smell to the clothes like the other detergents that has no smell at all. The other best thing about Surf Excel Matic Liquid Detergent is, it makes the clothes feel soft and fresh. It just removes the stain but retains the color of the fabric and the texture of the fabric the same way.




Surf Excel Matic Liquid Detergentalso does enormous good to your washing machine as the powder detergents usually gets clogged into your washing machine and causes trouble, whereas the Surf excel matic liquid detergent blends with the water and dissolves thoroughly so that there is no problem of clogging. There is no chance that this liquid will cause problem to your washing machine. Detergents sometimes sticks to the fabric and also leaves the cloth feel rough, it usually changes the texture of the cloth and also causes skin allergy, surf excel matic makes the cloth soft and fresh, it also cleanses very tough stain without taking out the color of the fabric. This product is well known for its color care on the clothes and avoids scaling issues on the fabric.

Godrej Aer pocket Review

Godrej Aer pocket Review:


By Sangeetha:

Have you ever experienced a stinky smell coming out from the dirty shoes, bathroom or kitchen garbage? Imagine guests coming to your place at this time. This would really be disgusting for you and them as well. I have been on a long haunt to make my bathroom smell like a garden. How much ever we clean, it gets dirty very soon. I have tried almost all the products in the market, and I have never been judging on the money I spend on these fragrance products, but no products met the expectation. It was all waste of money and did not even give any fragrance for a single day too. Then I heard about this Godrej Aer pocket through the constant advertisements in the television. Those advertisements where not new to me because every other brand I used previously also had a same kind of advertisements but it did not work well. However I wanted to try this product for one last time.

Godrej Aer pocket Review:

I bought this Godrej Aer pocket in the nearby supermarket. There was 1 bag inside each pocket, and each pocket costed Rs.55. To start with I purchased just one. There are many attractive colors with different fragrance. There are colors like purple, yellow, pink, green and aqua blue. The purple one is the violet valley, yellow is the tangy delight, green is the lush green, aqua blue is the misty meadows, and the pink one is the crush pink. The outer covers are very attractive as it comes in vibrant colors indicating the fragrance of the product that you are going to choose.




I tried the pink colored Godrej Aer pocket named the Crush pink. As the name suggests you will fall in love with the smell of this pocket. This finally made my bathroom smell like heaven. It has a strong fragrance and spreads over the entire bathroom. Few people may not like this smell as it is a little strong.




Then to the next try I purchased the violet valley. This one also had a very nice lavender smell, it eradicates all the bad smell and leaves your room with a very good fragrance.



My next try is the misty meadows that comes in an aqua blue color packet. This one has a very pleasant smell, this will be loved by the ones who does not prefer strong smell.

I am yet to try on the tangy delight and the lush green fragrance and I am sure it is not going to disappoint be.

But now the hectic outdoors schedule and the excessive pollution has taken away all the beauty and glamour from your hands. But the hands are most probably one of the most important organs – most in use and most abused. 

We need to keep our hands not only good – looking, but also completely sanitised as we perform most of the vital functions like eating and handling our kids. However, utter neglect turn our hands into two freckled, rough and smelly surfaces, the sight of which is surely going to turn people off.

These were the problems that I was facing a few years back. The problem was aggravated when I was posted in a place away from home, and had to manage my laundry, wash my dirty dishes and utensils all be myself, continuously for two years! And the result was two hands, which looked like the hands of a 80 years – old lady. I was so shocked with the effect that all those detergents were having on my skin, that I started to look for remedies on that very day. Also, the pollutants, dirts, impurities made it worse.

Elite Matrimony Feedback

Every girl has big dreams about her wedding and even bigger dreams about her life partner. For a few, such a wedding happens like a breeze. For few others, it’s quite a toil.

It is just not about finding the right partner but also about identifying the perfect family. That’s because marriages are just not about the unison of two individuals but of two families. All of us would have a friend or relative who has been unsuccessful in finding the perfect match. We also would have heard tales of not-so-successful marriage due to various reasons.

From my family’s personal experience, I have an interesting story to share. There is this cousin of mine named Haritha. A very well bred, intellectual and independent girl from a financially sound background.
