Have you Tried Bamboo Tooth Brushes Yet?

Have you Tried Bamboo Tooth Brushes Yet?

Hi Friends,

Hope you all are doing great and enjoying life to the fullest!

Today I have a very interesting product to share with you all. It is one of the basic need in our daily routine. Today's product will take us a step closer to being more organic and non toxic!

Have you tried Bamboo Tooth brushes yet instead of our regular plastic tooth brushes?
I have been using them from few days now from a couple of brands and today I would be sharing one such brand, which manufactures Bamboo Tooth Brushes? It is ' Terra Brush'

Link to their website:

We all know how harmful plastic is for mother nature and it is always better to switch to something more organic and natural whenever possible. Bamboo is an excellent source for making toothbrushes since it is as strong as wood,even better I think! These are natural with no chemicals or plastic and naturally biodegradable.

Why Bamboo?
Amazing growth rate of Bamboo and its natural antibacterial ability makes it the world's most sustainable material.

Why Terrabrush?
These tooth brushes are made of 100% natural bamboo handle. These are free from any harmful paint and other chemicals such as BPA. Terrabrush are affordable and Eco friendly.

These Bamboo tooth brushes work as good as our traditional plastic tooth brushes.
I have two of them
  • Charcoal Bristled Bamboo Tooth Brush: This is priced at Rs 75/- Handle is made up of moso bamboo from China and the bristles are made of high grade nylon-4 bristles infused with charcoal.
  • White Bristled Bamboo Tooth Brush: This is also priced at Rs 75/- Handle is made of moso bamboo from China and the bristles are made of high grade soft nylon.

Bamboo tooth brushes are a great way to contribute to save mother nature as unlike the plastic brushes, these will not sit on the planet forever and will naturally decompose. Plastic, on the other hand is non biodegradable and release toxic chemicals as it decays.
Also, these are very comfortable to use and have a nice grip to hold.Bristles are also perfect,neither too soft nor too hard. Pricing is quite affordable.

Overall, I think it is a great initiative and I will encourage everyone to at least try it once!
These are availbe at Amazon. You can easily by from there. Also, they do have tooth brushes for kids!

Book Review: The Peshwa: War Of The Deceivers By Ram SivaSankaran

Book Review: The Peshwa: War Of The Deceivers By Ram SivaSankaran

Hi Friends,

Today's book is again for all those Epic\Indian History lovers!
'The Peshwa- War Of The Deceivers' by Indian author Ram Sivasankaran. This is the Second book in the Peshwa series.

Plot Summary: Seven years have passed since Peshwa Bajirao Bhat annihilated the Nizam's armies at Fort Mandu. Th two forces have been engaged in attacks and skirmishes ever since. Acting on the advice of his right hand man, the mysterious Anaamik Dabhade, the Peshwa now sets about laying a trap to truly ensnare the Mughals, and break their might.
The empire of course has methods of his own. And Nizam Ul Mulk is itching for an opportunity to exact revenge of the formidable Bajirao. With assassins, saboteurs and criminals infiltrating the Maratha lands, the Mughal Empire scores as many victories in the night as the Peshwa does during the day.
Meanwhile, in the far reaches of the country, set ablaze by the never ending conflict between these major powers, a Sikh warlord, a Rajput king and a Bundela princess find themselves increasingly tangled up in the endgame that will determine the very course of history. It is a battle of wits and skill, and the greatest deceiver of them all will prevail.

Genre: Fiction

Language: English

Price: Rs 599/-

No. Of Pages: 474

About The Author: Ram was born in Madras, India but has spent most of his life abroad, largely in the Middle East and US. He was brought up on stories from Hindu legend and the great epics and classics of both India and the West. He had his master's degree from Stanford University specializing in aeronautics, space environment, astronautics and plasma phenomena. Although, scientist by training, Ram is, at heart, a daydreamer of sorts, who believes deeply in the power of imagination.

My Review:
This is the second book in the Peshwa series by the author. Although, I have not read the first one but still I decided to read this one and totally enjoyed it. Peshwas Bajirao is quite a prominent name in our Indian history. Specially after the block buster movie, our Indian audience have became much more interested in him! No wonder Bajirao's life was full of twists and turns and thrill..
This book is a nice & fine piece of Indian History Fiction. It will surely make you feel transported to that time and era...I love the amount of detailing in the narration by the author. The story line is thrilling and engaging.

Even the starting scene of  Chimaji and Kashiraj on the boat impressed me and aroused my curiosity to read further..
The story is just not about Peshwa but includes many characters who played important role from time to time likes Kashibai , Mastani, Nizam etc

It did took me some days to finish it since some of the scenes and characters are quite detailed and elaborated. It has all the interesting elements in it like war, throne politics, Kings, Family, Lust for power... All the characters are well defined including their dressing, expressions etc

The author surely knows how to tell a story interestingly and make it a page turner!
Having said all the above, this book do require some patience to complete it and enjoy it to its fullest. Would like to highly recommend this book to all the History Fiction lovers!
I am surely looking forward to reading more from the author.

Book Review: Ashwatthama's Redemption- The Rise Of Dandak By Gunjan Porwal

Book Review: Ashwatthama's Redemption- The Rise Of Dandak By Gunjan Porwal

Hello Lovely Readers,

I love to read Mythology Fictions...Many Indian Authors are coming up with Indian Mythology Fictions in the recent time....No wonder our Indian Mythology is filled with various interesting stories and many larger than life characters!
Here comes an another one from my favourite list. Something I have absolutely loved reading from the page one!

Plot Summary: Over a hundred years after the Mahabharata War, an ancient power threatens to destroy the new Age Of Men, by establishing the Age Of Terror of the asuras, long believed to be extinct.The only hurdle in its path is Guru Dronacharya's son, the mighty but accursed warrior Ashwatthama, who lost all his powers following Lord Krishna's curse, and who unwillingly finds himself drawn into the quest of the lost bow of Lord Rama- the Kodanda.
As ghosts of the distant past return to haunt him, and the line between friends and enemies blurs, Ashwatthama must fight his inner demons to emerge victorious. He undertakes a perilous journey- across the vast plains of the Ganges, to the snow capped peaks of Himavant- where the price of failure is a fate worse than death, and death is a privilege not granted to Ashwatthama.

Is this all part of Lord Krishna's great plan? Will Ashwatthama be able to regain his lost glory?

About The Author: Gunjan Porwal, engineer by day and writer by night, is fascinated by Indian mythology, especially the Mahabharata and Ramayana. After graduating from IIT-K, Gunjan worked in MNC while contemplating writing anything other than code. He lives in Pune with his family. This is his debut novel.

My Review:

This is one of those few books for me, whose plot I have started to enjoy from the page one itself and completed the whole book without any moment of boredom. This is this book which belongs to one of my favourite Genre, but not every book can do justice to Mythology Genre..
Firstly, full marks for the beautiful cover. Totally apt and suitable for the story.

We all have heard about Mahabharata and Ramyana... But not much is known about the main character of this book 'Ashwatthama'.. He was a great warrior, who had a gem in his forehead. He fought in the greatest battle in the Indian history Mahabharata. He was cursed by Lord Krishna due to his sins & some mistakes which he did totally out of revenge against Pandavas and as a result he lost all his powers and got a fate to forever wander in the forests..

The story starts with Ashwatthama living a life in the forest with no meaning, he does not have any powers or a purpose of life. His only friend Vikram, King Of Surparaka came for his help to face & control Dandak, the greatest evil demon of all time as he was getting ready for resurrection. Only a demigod like Ashwatthama could kill him or control his resurrection. 

The story and the flow are totally gripping and you have to finish it without a break. There are some Sanskrit verses mentioned in between, which gives an unique feel to the whole read. Totally loved the whole journey described through the forests & mountains, to get the Sacred Bow of Lord Ram, Kodanda. The whole story is build very interestingly where in only a demigod can use the Kodanda and Ashwatthama is the last one, the only living part incarnation of Lord Shiva. The greatest evil Dandak can only be killed by Lord Shiva.

My favourite chapters would be 'The Valley Of Illusions', 'Karma' 'The Yeti Kingdom'.
All the characters are well built and described properly. There are elements of friendship, love, magic, action, drama, suspense..Overall a great mix!
Do read the book to know what happened in the last, will Dandak come back or be killed?

If Indian Mythology interests you, especially the very famous and most heard tale of Mahabharata, then surely this book is for you. This book is surely one of my Favourites so far!
I totally enjoyed reading the book and surely look forward for the sequel.

Some Super Useful House Hold Products From Bonita!

Some Super Useful House Hold Products From Bonita!

Hi Friends!

I have recently picked few products for my daily house hold chores, which has helped me a lot to keep my home more organised.
Bonita's products are targeted towards today's needs. All of the product are something which are highly needed and used in today's lifestyle and homes! There are two such very useful day to day house hold products,which I picked recently and would love to share about them with you all. So, Here are they:

1. Alpha Ironing Mat:
2. Clever Pegs

1. Alpha Ironing Mat: 
  • Easy To Fold And Store
  • Compact & Durable Ideal for Daily Use
  • Added Silicon Pad for Keeping Hot Iron
  • Suitable For Larger Clothes
  • Can Be Easily Used On Bed, Counter and Table
  • Comes in Beautiful attractive Prints & Patterns
  • Retails For Rs 995/-  for the Size 'Large'
  • Made In India
  • Proud Winner Of IHA Finalist Award In USA

2. Clever Pegs:
  • Used For Drying Clothes
  • Set Of 12 Pcs
  • Dual Sided Usage
  • Creates Vertical Space
  • No Metal Part. Hence, No risk of Rusting
  • Retails For Rs 135/-
  • Comes in Assorted Colours
  • High Grade Plastic

The biggest problem in Homes specially in Big Cities is the Crunch Of Space. I live in a rented apartment and I could never find a designated and a separate space in my home for setting up my Ironing table. The problem of very less spare space is quite a common issue in today's apartments. As a result, I always have to Iron my clothes on my Bed.

Due to regular Ironing on my Bed, that particular area of the mattress has become little discolored and patchy due to regular heat contact. So, when I spotted this Ironing Mat from Bonita, it instantly caught my attention since it was something which was very much needed! I picked it up and am very happy and satisfied with it. It has solved all my issue of where to Iron my clothes. It can be used on the Bed, Table or Counter.

The quality is very nice and thick and comes with a Silicon Pad to keep the Iron. Just use and fold it and you are done! It is such a comfortable & useful product for all those like me, who do not have adequate space to put a separate Ironing Table. It can be easily used on Bed or even a study table! Also, when you are not using it, it can be folded and kept in a cupboard. It requires a very minimum amount of space.
I would highly recommend this product. It has made my life so much easier and helps me to keep my mattress safe from heat too!

The second product is also quite innovative in itself, which is again a great help for those whose have small balconies.
The Dual Sided Usage helps to use the vertical space and hence more clothes can be dried in less space. However, I would suggest that the second clothing item should be small as compared to the upper item. At the lower end, you can dry something like Socks, Handkerchief, Inners, Hand Towels etc. 

The quality of the plastic is good enough and does not feel cheap. I must say it is also quite a useful product.
You can find these products on Aamzon, Flipkart or their Website

Currently, you can find some amazing discounts going on their website on all the items. Just use the code BON25 and get 25% off.
Also, there are some other amazing and super useful Household products. Make sure to check them out too..
