A Weekend Outing In The Chills

What do you do when you see one bar flashing in your cell phone?

You know it is a signal of your mobile battery getting low. You rush up to put your phone on charge. You do so because you don't want yourself to be away from your contacts.
Thus, you put energy into your cell to work for long hours. Likewise, by taking weekend breaks, you infuse a wave of energy to your body and mind to keep you vigorous for a week-long task.  Working for hours on end burns out your stamina. To keep yourself going for the rest of the days, you need to restore energy by way of taking breaks on weekends. What better than to energies yourself by having an outing on winter days. You must have been to weekend trips many times before.

But an outing on a chilly weekend is a different experience altogether. The scattered leaves, barren trees, cold breeze, bright sunbeam, nature wearing a white blanket of mist--signaling the onset of winter. Though winters are the time when your feet don't like to hit the frozen floor, all you like is to snuggle up with a good book in front of a fireplace.

Are you aware of the fact that winter is the best season to revitalise yourself?
This is the season to step outdoors and bask in the warm sunshine in the midst of cold breeze. As temperature dips, people wish to stay indoors. Upon asked by your loved ones to plan a trip in the chills, you give an excuse of the freezing climate.

This seems fine at times. Do you know that too much of staying indoors can lead to lethargy?

Get out of your lazy zone, let loose yourself and head on to a place where fresh winter morning vivifies you from within. The weekend trip in the chills will not only boost your energy, but also recuperate from the toil you go through everyday. If you had an improper digestion in other seasons; then, this chilly season gives you a chance to gorge on in your lip smacking delicacies. Having an outdoor dining is out of the world! The outdoor dining adds a lively dimension of eating in an open air to have a healthy appetite.

Dining in an enclosed space is a daily routine of life. Why not dine under the sky along with nature in the chills?

Communing with nature is the supreme way to de-stress oneself. Sipping on a hot coffee in a chilly open air will give you the taste of freshness, keeping you vivacious all the week through. While winter days allure you to be indoors, wear extra layers over yourself, fight the freeze and head for a chilly weekend.

Living in the Expensive Days

Making plans to amaze your kids with a lavish birthday bash? 

Looking forward to your anniversary date with great anticipation to amuse your spouse with a surprise treat? Give a halt to your extravagant plans because the monster 'inflation' is set to trample your celebratory mood by punching high rates, showing you the path of cost-cutting. Delicacies make a feast complete. Feeding delicacies to many are far-fetched, as food and groceries are soaring each day. In India, more than half the wages is spent on feeding. With the continuous rise in prices, many people go starve. The present scenario is so nerve-racking that price hikes leave a big hole in the pocket.
Time was when people used to wait to give a lavish celebration because spending money was no bar to them. In today's stress-bound life where festivals are the only reason of celebration, the inflation leaves a sign of dismay on your face. The reason behind people are paying more than they used to pay in the past years. Owing to steep rise in the prices, women are battling with the household budget. The dream of a healthy diet has flown out of the window. A nourished diet is beyond the reach of a common man, as it is reachable to business class. On one hand, onions make everyone weep; on the other, fuel hikes are set to puncture your leisure travel. Inflation has created such havoc on household budget that there is little headroom left to spend on your personal happiness. We all love to shop for our loved ones.

Before giving, you have to think over how much you can expend?

Will it mess up your budget? The days are gone when you carried a number of shopping bags, keeping price tags at bay. Today is the day when you have to secretly check the tags first before a purchase.
Thus, shopping has become a necessity, rather than a joy of giving. Every little thing is hitting the roof, leaving the middle class in the lurch. Not only food rates, but also the property rates steep high each passing day.
In the coming time, it will be next to impossible for the coming generation to seek shelter in a 370 square feet space. The source of income remains stagnant but price of items has sky-rocketed. Earlier, people were in position to buy things in excess for the times of exigency. In present days, people buy things to make their ends meet. Instead of taking measures to mitigate public woes, in the name of country's development, government is giving innumerable blows which is getting unbearable for the people of India. One such is the steep rise in the cooking gas cylinders, imposing an intolerable burden on the common man's shoulder. A service class is left to combat with stagnant income on one end and rising prices on the other end.

Will a man's woes ever be heard? 
Will a poor man's tears ever be wiped? 
Will a square meal ever be served as a full meal in the common man's platter by the government?
