Warm welcome to the most beautiful Bridegroom - A typical south Indian wedding Aarathi Plates!

Do you wonder what these colourful plates are for? A typical South Indian wedding aarthi (welcome plates) to welcome the bridegroom. This was exclusively designed for my me and my sister for my wedding.

I was very sure that the plates should represent my likes and it should reflect my personality (to an extent).

A cute decoration with ceramic dolls that represent different stages of the girl. The couple doll represents the happiness in the wedding.

I always love wild animals (especially tiger) so this plate represents my love towards animals.

Girls are always crazy about cosmetics and accessories. The cute little barbie doll is getting ready with the different dresses, earrings and perfume. 

 The wedding is all about sharing and showing love. The love and bond between parents get stronger and the bride and the groom begin their love story on this special day. This heart is the representation of acceptance!

The Wedding is incomplete without flowers and these artificial flowers add a lot of glory to the trousseau!

This is a special decoration by my sister. She took a lot of effort to design the red carpet. Thats lovely isn't?

Elephants are strong so the bride and groom should develop a strong relationship as big as elephants! Well, that's a new story!

This is my favourite decoration. My craziness for nail polish and nail art is never ending and this plate defines my love for nail polish. 

Can we design a plant without the names of the bride and the groom?

Witness the minute detailing  I spent a lot for designer blouses so these are the remaining pieces that I used for the plate decoration. 

Yet another flower! A big artificial lotus.

Natural flowers on a beautiful plate. When I didn't have other ideas to decorate, I picked up a beautiful plate and filled it with flower. 

Rose bouquet. Natural roses would have been great but I fell in love with this bunch and picked it. 

Shall I name this as a rose basket? The fun part lies in this decoration! Bridegroom was welcomed with flower shower!

There are lot of interesting things during wedding preparation and this is one of the most interesting part of the wedding with I enjoyed the most!

A visit to Science Express. An exhibition on Wheels!

Science Express at Mangalore, my first experience of such kind! Yes, I'm talking about the exhibition on trains!

I was surprised by the efforts taken by the Government to bring out such wonderful exhibitions to educate people. 'Climate Change' was the main concentration and there were interesting ideas, suggestions, activities that reflected the importance of Climate change. The exhibition conveyed the importance efficiently!

My question is "how effective is it going to be?"

Simple announcements were made to keep our mobile phones "switched off"while we enter the train and photography were strictly prohibited and was under surveillance!

Most of the educated people, students and children just ignored the 'Simple' instruction and kept clicking pictures and to the worst case there were even people who answered phone calls and kept talking at the top of their voice.

The Science Express was educational and there were many school children and college students who walked in without a notepad and pen (Aren't we supposed to take notes during educational trips?) There were few children who were arguing with the volunteers to click a picture (which was against the rule) for their project work.

If we educated human beings cannot follow simple rules, what are we going to do towards helping the nature?

The Science Express had a lot of simple adaptation methods for making our earth a better place to live, but how many of us (including me) are going to follow?

Common situations in arranged marriages! Smart ways to handle them!

Image result for husband and wife
Well, arranged marriage has its own advantages and disadvantages. There are a lot of surprises and suspense on one hand and there are misunderstandings and fights on the other hand! The beauty of arranged marriage is to learn about your spouse, adjusting with their likes and dislikes and loving them endlessly.  

It takes a lot of time to understand your spouse and new people so fights are common but if you handle it well, there are no further complications in the relationship.

Who pays for the wedding?

In arranged marriages, money plays a major role. There are endless arguments about who pays for what. The bride and the groom family have non-stop discussions over spending money for the wedding.

How to handle?

It is important to share the expenses and you must be careful not to burden the expenses on a single person to spend their entire money for the preparations. You must talk about your finances and start saving before and after your marriage.

Working at nights?

Do you work at night? Oh my God!!! This was the first reaction from my husband when I told him I was at work at 10.00PM in the night. He was shocked! Having no idea about rotational shifts in Information Technology, my husband was confused what I would do at the office in late nights! Though I have explained him about my ‘love towards work’, working at nights was a big shock to the entire family.

How to overcome the situation and handle the issue?

I was patient enough to explain them my work pattern, my clientele and the nature of the job. I explained them the procedure and informed them about my safety. They understood just because I was patient enough to explain. Though my career was important, I consulted my husband and in-laws about my future job progress and schedule and adjusted accordingly.

Back to back family function!

With no personal time for yourself, you have to attend all the family functions back to back! Your in-laws are eager to introduce you to the entire family so you are expected to attend the functions all time with a big smile on your face.

How to handle?

Are you engaged with other works and cannot attend an important function? Talk to your husband, explain your work schedule. Help him understand the importance of your work and the family function and let him decide!

What did you cook today?

Oh, well! That can be the most irritating question when you are away from your in-laws? You are not going to starve! When there are no other questions to be asked, people end up asking about food. Older generations ladies had to spend their time in cooking all time. Even when they are sick, they have to cook before they take rest.

How to handle?

In-laws are of different generations and they do not understand the way you cook. Do not be disrespectful. Explain them your situations and they will surely understand.

Do you need time for yourself?

Are you getting bored of being accompanied by your spouse all time? If you are unhappy about being with your spouse all time, you need to discuss it with your spouse immediately. When you get married, the time you spend for yourself and with your friends are restricted due to unavoidable reasons. If you want to maintain your friends while you enjoy with your spouse, you need to talk to them.

How to handle?

Allow your spouse to spend time with their friends and take permission from them to spend time with yours. Take rest for a day, skip cooking and take a break from your daily routine. It is better to discuss everything with your spouse before they point out any difference in your behaviour.

In a gangling hunt for a Job, when there are hundreds of equally proficient brains in the track, how do you hit smack on the Job?

   A smart outlook ?
   A good body language?

But there is something you can actually do without much struggle to get an edge of your competitors.

   Yes. The trick is questioning them back!

You can get this done with a little preparation & a whisk of confidence.
So how do you do it?

When you put forth a question, make sure it deliberately portrays your keenness to the profession.
    Your questions can be based on,

·       nature of work you are about to take up
·       significant regulations of the company
·       long and short-term goals of the company
·       perks of working with them
·       training methods
·       expectations from the employee

Before you could frame your set of questions, to know the Do’s and Don’ts will help you get a clear shot.

       The DO’s:

·       Sound Confident
·       Be cordial
·       Stay Passive

       The DON’Ts:

·       Strictly No smell of over confidence
·       No Arrogance
·       No Authoritative notion

      The questions fragmented below will give you a deeper insight on how exactly you deliver it.

Ø “What do you feel is the best thing about working here?”
Ø “What kind of deliverance is expected from the employees?”
Ø “How flexible is the administration?”
Ø “What kind of training will I undergo once I start working here?”
Ø “Are there any preparations that I should do before joining in?”
Ø “Is there any significant dress code I have to follow in the premises?”
Ø “Will I be asked, in peculiar cases, to work beyond my usual time?”
Ø “What is the core target of the company?”
Ø “Where can I see myself after 5 years of working with you?”
Ø “Is there a training period before I actually start working?”

You can go pre-planned with the questions and limit them based on the nature of the interview. This trick will give you a great level of confidence and help you make a greater impact to get your hands on your Dream Job! Cheers!
