Go Stylish This Summers with Divatress

Disclaimer : This is a sponsored post. The views and opinions expressed are entirely mine

I had become very tired of my looks and was looking for some change. Having worked as a hairstylist myself and been in the beauty industry for more than a decade, I am extremely conscious about the health of my hair and avoid getting chemical treatments done on my hair.

Hair are a very important part of beauty and a good hairstyle goes a long way in making your style statement. Also, at the same time, we easily become tired of carrying the same hairstyle for a long time. Especially during the wedding season, when one has to attend a number of functions, we need a new hair style for every function. While surfing the net and looking for some new hairstyling options, I came across Divatress.com. Divatress, is a company that sells thousands of wigs and hair care products.

The idea of hair braiding and trying different braids and curls really struck with me. I always find curls and braids more fascinating since I have straight hair. They make the hair look thicker, voluminous and more glamorous. But braiding or curling your own hair is really time consuming. Divatress offer crochet braids hair which can be easily installed in your own hair. They merge in the hair beautifully and look absolutely natural.

Fun Filled Family Getaway: KidZania Delhi NCR

As soon as exams got over, my kids started insisting us to take them to their favourite place which is KidZania Delhi NCR. We happily obliged as it was a much deserved break and also it’s a place where they can have unlimited fun along with some learning too. KidZania is an entire city full of fun for kids.


It’s a place which offers various role play activities for kids ranging from doctors, engineers, lawyers, judges, dancers, radio jockeys and many more. There is a hospital, a dental clinic, petrol pump, driving school, airport, Pepper fry furniture store, services like DHL, Bajaj energy conservation hub to name a few. All these are child driven activities which provide children real hands on experience of the working of these places.


The best part of KidZania is their security system. They provide a device to every member of the family which helps parents to keep a track of the kids and locate where they are. So, while the kids are engaged in all the activities, parents can easily sit back and enjoy themselves at the parents lounge. There are a number of food joints which offer a variety of food and coffee shops. To keep the memories of KidZania, there is a photo shop and a souvenir shop as well.


KidZania has also come up with some activities for adults too. So, parents who want to participate can opt for activities like Amity University, Archaeological site, Bollywood, courthouse, Disco lounge, Furtado’s school of music and Shiamak Dance academy and many more.


KidZania is the best place to celebrate your kid’s birthday and let their friends have an experience they will cherish forever. This place has so much to do for everyone that it makes it impossible to complete all the activities in one visit. Kids also get to open an account in Yes Bank and manage their own Kidzos, debit card and Pazzport.

For performing the role activities the kids have to either earn or spend their kidzos which enables them to learn the concept of earning, spending and saving money. At the end of their visit, they can also shop for themselves at the departmental store.

The activities which became a hit for my kids were rock climbing for my elder one and nursing the baby for my younger one. Apart from that my kids also enjoyed performing surgeries at the hospital and the dental treatment at the clinic.
For us, the most joyful sight was watching the kids running around as cops catching a thief and extinguishing fire as fire men. The experience of sitting at a fire engine was simply unforgettable.

So, what are you waiting for, take your kids to the most exciting place in the city and just sit back and enjoy.

The Inheritors: Stories of Entrepreneurship and Success by Sonu Bhasin – Book Review

Wondering how to grow your business and looking for some inspiration? Thinking as to how some businesses grow so big and while some are still struggling to make the ends meet?

The Inheritors by Sonu Bhasin is just what you are looking for.

About the Author

Sonu Bhasin is one of the early and senior women professionals in the industry and has led businesses in senior leadership positions during her role as director, ING Barings; president, Axis Bank; and group President, Yes Bank. Currently, Sonu is an independent director of boards of well-known companies.

She is the founder of Families and Business (FAB), a platform for family-owned businesses, and the editor of Families & Business magazine.

Blurb of the book

Why did Harsh Mariwala leave his family business? Why did the Burman family quit the day-to-day operations of Dabur? How did the Dhingras turn a collapsing business into India’s second largest paint company?

The Inheritors offers a fascinating behind- the- scenes look at what goes on in Marico, Dabur, Keventers, Berger Paints, Select Group, Motilal Oswal and many more. The book focuses on culture, family politics, ego battles, business rivalries and a lot more. And then, of course, there are the inheritors themselves- some take the businesses to greater heights while others lead them to doom.

Review

Sonu Bhasin has chosen storytelling method while writing about the inheritors of the so-called big business houses and brands as we know them today. The story telling method makes the book very interesting and highly relatable. It is very interesting to know that the inheritors, who are believed to be born with a silver spoon, also need to work hard and face a lot of challenges to reach where they are. Success doesn’t come easily to anyone. Even the big companies who have reached the skies of success today have to start from a scratch and had to go through several hardships from various fronts to be where they are today.

I found the book very inspiring and gripping from beginning to the end. Even while talking about the details of financial aspects of the family businesses, the book doesn’t lose the interest of the reader. Reading about the personal lives and interests of the inheritors of the family businesses, their ambitions, passions and dreams while dealing with the various obstacles that they had to confront, like Amit Burman’s dream of establishing food related business and how he had to work his way through in converting Real Fruit Juices and Lite Bite Foods into big profitable brands has highly inspiring and motivating.

The book also brings into light some aspects of feminism though in extremely subtle ways when the author talks about how the females of the families of the family businesses were not given any role in the council and even the profit sharing of some companies.

At the same time, there is the story of Pooja Jain from Luxor group, who questions the term “inheritors” itself and brings in to light how each day she has to work hard and has dedicated herself in the service of the company.

To conclude, the tight grip on the narrative and the story telling medium combined with some of the most fascinating stories of the people who took the reins of their family businesses in their hands and have not only been running it successfully but have also led them to greater heights, makes “The Inheritors” a worth read.

I was given a copy of the book by Writer’s Melon for an honest review.
