' Mere Desh ki Mitti ....  I won't Mitaao it with sweeping & swabbing ' swears my nephew Aamen.
' Whaaaaa..... ttt ? Tere Desh Ki Mitti ? Ok , fine then gather it in the dust pan and cultivate Gold , Diamonds, Pearls whatever on it... Just Do It. ' - I scream.
' Mouse the Trouse, your OCD for cleanliness is worse than Kenny Sebastian's mom.' - Aamen the Caveman.
' Don't Kenny-zone me. Check out Deepika, I mean her Royale ATMOS : A Paint that helps Purify Air ad.'

                                         

' Har ghar kuch kehta hain, Aamen are you listening ? Your Ghar is seeking attention - Declutter me, clean me, swab me , air me and pamper me like a family member. I want to feel royale so that you can enjoy my majestic charm. I know you love stories. Here's my story ... Kahani Ghar Ghar ki. '





























Once upon a time, India was the most fertile, prosperous and leading nation of the world. Indians were happy, healthy and wealthy. Naturally the atmosphere was clean, clear and pure. Alas! that's all History and present is SCARY. Care to know, Yeh kya hua ? Kaise hua ?

Let's do introspection. You dump your leftover food and scrap into the single, uncovered bin. You never separate your wet and dry garbage. You escalate the air, water pollution through daily garbage, cluttering your homes with rusty tins, plastic bags-bottles etc. You forget to repair your clogged basins , sinks-pipes. You ignore doing yearly Pest Control. You neglect routine cleaning at home, and then you suffer from cough, cold, Dengue, Malaria etc.


Some pollutants are emitted from building and construction materials and indoor equipment. These pollutants degrade the quality of air within your home. You spend a substantial amount of time indoors. Breathing in polluted air can lead to a whole host of health issues, from headaches to sever respiratory disorders. One of the major indoor air pollutants is formaldehyde. It is 
emitted by construction materials including plywood, MDF and adhesives – all of which are used in making furniture. The resins used in the manufacture of these adhesives degrade and emit formaldehyde. Formaldehyde has severe health issues. 

Are you aware that 13 of the world's top 20 most polluted cities are in India. But, the air inside your home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. In Modern times, it's a privilege to stay in metro to achieve your Goals. to reach the summit of your chosen career. You have no option but to live in a glass & concrete  urban jungle which directly affects the quality of air you breathe. 



You have a few getaways in natural surroundings. Your Villages are pristine with Sunny beaches. Silvery sands, Scenic sea , ravishing rivers , majestic mountains , verdant valleys and fragrantly fresh forests. Nature is Pure , Natural air is Cleaner and still for how much time can you stay outside cities ?  At the end of the picture perfect picnic , you must return to your matchbox apartments. 




You have the solution to your problem. You are responsible for your Present situation and you are capable of making your homes healthy, sunny, bright. Let me Share some Gharelu  tips & tricks to ensure clean air inside home. Indoor air pollution can have a severe negative impact on our health. Let's keep our homes spic and span. Daily sweeping , swabbing, yearly Pest-control are must. Remove all clutter, scraps, old unwanted, broken, rusted things from home. Get all leakages, taps, pipes, windows, doors repaired. Plant Tulsi ( Holy Basil ), Aloe Vera which are pure source of oxygen and have medicinal properties. Sanitation and hygiene begin at homes and affect our Health. Our children learn hygienic habits by imitating us enthusiastically. The parents must learn good sanitation and hygiene habits. They must practice them earnestly. Children would follow parents. Good hygiene and sanitation practice will surely transform India at large for the better environment and brighter future. 



Finally , Let's pledge for clean air with Royale ATMOS - A Paint that helps purify air.  It's activated carbon technology reduces harmful air pollutants and makes the air cleaner.The foul smells that persist within a room degrade indoor air. These bad odours linger and act as air irritants. Royale Atmos also improves air quality by absorbing certain foul smells. There is a select range of household odours that it absorbs including nicotine, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, sweat, garlic and makes the air fresher. It looks good and improve the air quality inside your home. It reduces formaldehyde, a dangerous indoor pollutant.


  

Royale Atmos gives a luxurious look due to its rich, smooth Matt finish. It provides best-in-class washability, excellent stain and scrub resistance thanks to its Teflon Surface Protector. Royale Atmos has excellent durability, lasting an average of 5-6 years. It has Green Assure Seal which means it is VOC safer and Environment-friendly Royale Atmos is the first Asian Paints product to have a fragrance, instead of the normal chemical smell of paints.

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers



Once upon a time in Mumbai, while travelling in a office hour-rushed local, we had an ironic epiphany. An epiphany was that , we had the Celebrity among us , who had possessed The Credit card.

JOCKEY CELEBRATES 141 YEARS OF LEGACY WITH A UNIQUE POP-UP MUSEUM


#ThereIsOnlyOne Jockey

Jockey, the world's best-loved and most-recognized innerwear brand launched a unique pop-up museum to bring alive its legacy in Mumbai and Bangalore.

Walking down memory lane of the Jockey museum was bollywood stunner Kriti Sanon who was joined by leading south film actress and model Kriti Kharbanda and popular VJ and actress Rhea Chakraborty.  The leading ladies were seen marveling at the history of innerwear that was pioneered by Jockey over the past century. The Jockey pop-up museum is open to everyone from September 8 – 10, 2017 at High Street Phoenix, Parel

The pop-up museum celebrates the history of Jockey and relives its incredible journey by bringing alive key milestones such as; the invention of the brief in 1934, the revolutionary Y-front design of 1935, the ‘Cellophane Wedding’ in 1938 which was the world’s first fashion show for innerwear, the very first innerwear TV commercial in 1958, the special line of underwear created for NASA’s Apollo mission in 1962, introduction of the first men’s bikini brief in 1969, pioneering the use of box packaging for innerwear in 1972,  the first ever innerwear fashion show in India in 1995, and many more.


























Founded in 1876, Jockey has a rich history as one of the apparel industry’s original pioneers and innovators. Whether it’s inventing the first ever men’s brief in 1934, developing underwear for astronauts of NASA’s Apollo Mission in 1962, or setting benchmarks in the innerwear category with groundbreaking advertising, Jockey continues to define the industry.

This year also marks 70 years since Jockey stitched the brand name on the waist band of their innerwear. At a time when underwear was not openly spoken about and underwear brands put their names on their products only for legal reasons, Jockey wanted to show the world how proud it was of its products. In what seemed like a small step, Jockey embroidered its name onto the waistbands of its products, and was the first brand to ever do so. Jockey’s branding of the band was path-breaking, and broke out into a global trend which is seen across brands even today.

Whether you’re attending the Jockey Pop-up museum or watching it from afar, join the conversation using #THEREISONLYONE on Twitter @JockeyIndia and Instagram @jockeyindia. Also visit the Jockey India Facebook page for LIVE updates on Jockey’s 141 year celebration.
