Christopher Reeve is the actor who played the role of Superman in the ‘Superman’ movie. This quote by him was probably made when he was playing the role and he let the role inspire him into thinking how even the most ordinary people can be heroes if they have the strength to persevere.

Initially I was a little unsure about taking my 10 years old kid Akshar to Manali. The reason being was the chill weather of Manali and the snowfall around. But, then I thought, this is how you get closer to the Nature. With the passion to explore the beauty of Manali town, which is quite popular for its adventurous activities, we headed straight towards our destination. The resort I had booked was Apple Country Resort Manali.

Apple Country Resort Manali:  For Those Who Have A Penchant for luxurious living !

Being a lecturer by profession, I always carry the penchant to know about new things. The resort was something that I had never seen before. The wonderful wooden interiors completely mesmerized my wife and she was in total praise of it. What I liked about the resort was its location. I mean, it was like a 5min drive from the highly famous Mall Road of Manali. From the main taxi stand, I think the distance was more or less 500 meters.

Located amidst the beautiful snowcapped mountains, this resort provided us all the basic amenities that one craves for, particularly during the chilly winter days.  The bathrooms were really spacious and were equipped with comfortable bathtubs. However, the most striking aspect about the resort was its lip smacking food items, which were prepared in the in-house restaurant of the resort.

 

 

From tourist’s point of view, the location of this resort was absolutely convenient. The reason behind was the frequent visit to the Mall Road. No doubt, my lovely wife was more enthralled about shopping at the Mall Road of Manali, whereas I and my son were more excited about the apple gardens all around. Overall, the four days we stayed in Apple Country Resort Manali turned out to be totally memorable for all three of us.

Republic Day Wishes

Republic Day Wishes

When we praise the freedom fighters, it impels the sentimental satisfaction. When we are censured, we feel discouraged. We get annoyed just about our circumstances and then the peace starts missing. The reason for this is lack of awareness which can be removed by calming so as to focus on the celestial soul and the brain.

Krumkake is a Norwegian waffle treat produced using flour, eggs, buttered sugar, and cream. Like Italian pizzelle, an uncommon decorated two-sided iron frying pan, like a waffle iron, is generally used to prepare the flimsy round cakes. It is to a great degree yummy and an absolute necessity to taste.

This day teaches us that when we surrender or diminish our longings, our mind will be given rest. When the brain is calm; the heavenly virtue of the divine purity lights up our way towards enlightenment. We ought not to turn into brain's slave in light of the fact that it will just create more confusion.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

As a lecturer I believe that the Christmas festival is more in the head than it is under a Christmas tree. I always tell my students that they should encourage the spirit of Christmas and understand the teachings of Jesus Christ. Santa Claus and Christmas trees are more of a tradition and external in nature.
