Mountains scare me! Be it driving through the curved paths or climbing through the woods, I always hold my breathe until the ordeal is over. As a child, once our family had been to a trip to Mysore. As we started climbing the ghat roads, I remember praying to God at every hair-pin bend, to…

My toddler’s (and partly mine) days are active with engaging play times; not just about driving cars on the floor and walls but so much more, adding sufficient room for his creativity and imagination. As parents, most of us do create innovative play ideas for our children. Imagine how helpful it would be if we all can share them with other families who might want to pick up ideas that would fit and interest their children. For once I thought I would share our play times with other parents and kids and that’s how Vihaan’s Toys Plays Reviews, my YouTube channel, got its roots. I hope someday, somewhere, something from our videos might inspire someone’s little ones’ play times. For now, in spite of my average skills in video-making, I am venturing into it, hoping to hone my skills as I make more videos. Here’s a quick list of the kind of content that will be posted on the channel.

Especially, in the long run, how happy and healthy I carry my heart shall dictate the environment and health of the entire home and family.
The tantric curse is a book for self-realization and self-analysis that needs to be read at one’s own pace, giving time for contemplation in between.

And the reading can make a good learning experience.
Ramayana was all about Ravana abducting Sita and Rama rescuing Sita with the help of Hanuman, before I received the book. I am glad for now I know the intricacies that were involved even before Sita was abducted and the consequences that followed soon after. The many characters and their brief appearances have been justly described. Regardless of whether the reader is a novice or an expert on Ramayana, I think the book shall prove a worthy read to all.

The Rigveda Code is an interesting mythological fiction based on the after-effects of the Mahabharata war. The plot centers around Rikshavi, a warrior princess of the Vrij kingdom (in present-day Bihar). Thirty years post the war, Lord Krishna wishes for a new system of governance for the future of Bharatkhanda. However, instead of establishing the new system by himself, he chooses to pass the secret code to the Pandavs’ legacy which the warrior princess is destined to fulfill.
