MEET NILU AND AMAN

Aman is the most patient person you will find on this planet. He does not have many friends but the ones he has are for lifetime. His decisions are taken after pondering over million possibilities and taking an opinion of the family. He chooses people around him with utmost scrutiny and then hangs onto the ones who are genuine. He is not a people person but he is the life of the party when he is around his kith and kin. He does not look like a nerd or a genius but he has automated his bedroom in the most unique way possible. He knows how to make people laugh and only views the positive in any adverse situation. Kind, reserved, a person who cannot hurt you, hates coffee, loves hot chocolate, hates early mornings, loves late night drives, hogs on sweets, has the biggest itunes song library, dresses up even if he has to run down in the lift to buy a pack of milk and always smells nice.

Whereas our bride Nilu is the most impatient person around you. She cannot wait for any surprise and so her surprise parties should be planned with her. She is academically prodigy, vivacious personality, merit student in her Mtech from NMIMS, classical trained in Bharatnatyam, represented India in Portugal for her painting, smooth master skater, loves the smell of books, very decisive, hates kindle, loves French press black coffee, hates being without footwear even at home, has practically watched 50% of all Hollywood sitcoms and series, loves food, hates Indian sweets, possessive about her dear ones and the only child to her very content parents.

HOW THEY MET

Oh, and how these two met you say !!??

13th July 2013.

A boy from Ahmedabad and a girl from Baroda left for Mumbai in Lokshakti express and Avantika express respectively. Both for securing admission in a prestigious masters university where they were already selected based on their merit and had to pay the admission fees to secure their seat. Little did they know that God has other plans. Due to heavy rainfall, the train was stranded in the outskirts of Gujarat for hours without knowing what would happen to their post graduate degree plans. Both juggled the same idea of taking pictures of their marksheets in mobile phone and sending them to their relative who would instead reach the college and take the admission on their behalf.

With the boy’s luck, his relative worked in bank and so a DD of the amount of fees was made instantly and his admission was sealed with him sitting in the train.

The girl’s admission was a bit tricky & she always had to fight for what she deserved. She reached the college at 5:55PM with her mother and the admissions closed at 6 PM.

The next 2 minutes went in her realising that she lost the chance to study in NMIMS. The 3rd minute was spent in crying and persuading the panel to consider her case since the rainfall news was all over the channels, she had sent them 5 mails with all the information & documents. The admission committee behaved non-chalant and ignored. The 4th minute was spent sinking in a chair looking at her mother and realising that she was raised to be a fighter and in the 5th minute she said “I will raise a court case against university since you have the mails, news channels and my merit number is 8, so every student who got admission after merit number  will be cancelled.” Pin drop silence and a quiet hush phone call later she was informed that there was a new ‘STAFF seat’ given to her and that’s how she got the admission at 6PM in NMIMS and she hated the boy who did not even have to show his face to the college.

The next 2 years went from hating him to liking him and eventually falling in love with him.

Since both were gujaratis and were typical foodies, they bonded over cuisines, exploring mumbai. IIT fests, talking about their dad’s and business, mom’s and their delicacies, gujarati dramas starring Siddharth Randeria, studying for placements together, finding homes with roommates every year, playing pranks, sharing knowledge about gizmos and companies that were recrutting. They were strong pillars for each other in a city where they were alone and away from families. But it was not head over heels kind of love. It was a sane, well thought decision after they got recruited in the same company and later when they thought that they were earning enough to maintain a healthy lifestyle in a city like Mumbai. Since they were best friends they could talk about every insecurity and share every dream with eachother which made them realise that maybe marriage is not a bad decision after all.

The gujrati wedding of Nilu & Aman had everything starting from sangeet, mehndi, garba night, haldi, ganesh pooja, wedding and finally the reception. Everything showcased the quintessence of love that these two beautiful souls shared.

THE WEDDING

 

And they asked the pandit after the actual pheras if they could take their own vows and read them out from Aman’s mobile in the mandap.

  1. We will never leave each other until the last breath
  2. We may fight but will make sure we cuddle before we sleep at night
  3. We shall take a stand for each other in challenging times and compliment each other regularly
  4. We will make sure we will be the strongest support system to each other in any kind of difficult crisis/situation.nilu12

THE RECEPTION

 

FROM THE BRIDE –

nilu15

 

“IF THE GUY CAN MAKE YOU LAUGH WHILE GETTING MARRIED, THAN YOU MADE THE CORRECT DECISION.”

I never wanted a fairytale big indian wedding but nonetheless I had. I had it because of three reasons. Firstly, Aman believes in ‘celebrating every moment’. He still makes sure to surprise me with sweet love notes all over the home and brings cupcakes to celebrate even our salaries that gets credited every month (yes, the smallest of joys). Secondly, we wrote our own vows. Lastly, Aman promised to play the song that is closest to my heart during the pheras.

So, all the small moments of me dancing with my would-be family or hugging my own father and crying in front of 300 people, or the speeches given by my nani, mom and best friends are all because there was enough patience, love and positive mindset to make the 4 day wedding celebration be precious.

OH, and now when I see the videos and pictures I am more happy than Aman that we indeed had a good wedding and made a zillion memories.

PS. To all the girls out there – Marry your best friend. It will be the best decision of your life!

Paneer Tikka Masala

Paneer Afghani Momos

Veg Tandoori Achari Momos

The quality and quantity of Soya malai chaap was good and the taste was mind blowing. It totally goes with the name soft and delicious.

The Paneer tikka masala was a surprise delight. Well marinated soft paneer served with onions and green chutney. It tasted so good.

When you are bored with the same steemed momos, this is the right dish to change the taste. Momos was so mouthwatering and a delight to have. The taste of these creamy paneer afghani momos will gonna melt in your mouth

Succelent, shredded spicy vegies with spicy achari flavour.The best dish when you want to have some spicy chaap, go for achari chaap.

All the dishes were delightfully good and the way I expected them to be when they are cooked well, the flavour, spices, seasoning and cooking itself.

When it comes to proper lunch/dinner they have veg thali, Egg thali, Mix thali, chicken thali and some combo like Makhni gravy chaap/ Makhni paneer gravy/ Makhni gravy chicken with rumali roti.

All About Anxiety

screenshot_20190313-144023
Occasional anxiety is an expected part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships.
There are several types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and various phobia-related disorders.

Signs and Symptoms

screenshot_20190313-150044

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

People with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) display excessive anxiety or worry, most days for at least 6 months, about a number of things such as personal health, work, social interactions, and everyday routine life circumstances. The fear and anxiety can cause significant problems in areas of their life, such as social interactions, school, and work.
Generalized anxiety disorder symptoms include:
Feeling restless, wound-up, or on-edge
Being easily fatigued
Having difficulty concentrating; mind going blank
Being irritable
Having muscle tension
Difficulty controlling feelings of worry
Having sleep problems, such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, restlessness, or unsatisfying sleep
Panic Disorder
People with panic disorder have recurrent unexpected panic attacks. Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear that come on quickly and reach their peak within minutes. Attacks can occur unexpectedly or can be brought on by a trigger, such as a feared object or situation.
During a panic attack, people may experience:
Heart palpitations, a pounding heartbeat, or an accelerated heartrate
Sweating
Trembling or shaking
Sensations of shortness of breath, smothering, or choking
Feelings of impending doom
Feelings of being out of control
People with panic disorder often worry about when the next attack will happen and actively try to prevent future attacks by avoiding places, situations, or behaviors they associate with panic attacks. Worry about panic attacks, and the effort spent trying to avoid attacks, cause significant problems in various areas of the person’s life, including the development of agoraphobia (see below).
screenshot_20190313-143939
Phobia-related disorders
A phobia is an intense fear of—or aversion to—specific objects or situations. Although it can be realistic to be anxious in some circumstances, the fear people with phobias feel is out of proportion to the actual danger caused by the situation or object.
People with a phobia:
May have an irrational or excessive worry about encountering the feared object or situation
Take active steps to avoid the feared object or situation
Experience immediate intense anxiety upon encountering the feared object or situation
Endure unavoidable objects and situations with intense anxiety
There are several types of phobias and phobia-related disorders:
Specific Phobias (sometimes called simple phobias): As the name suggests, people who have a specific phobia have an intense fear of, or feel intense anxiety about, specific types of objects or situations. Some examples of specific phobias include the fear of:
Flying
Heights
Specific animals, such as spiders, dogs, or snakes
Receiving injections
Blood
Social anxiety disorder (previously called social phobia): People with social anxiety disorder have a general intense fear of, or anxiety toward, social or performance situations. They worry that actions or behaviors associated with their anxiety will be negatively evaluated by others, leading them to feel embarrassed. This worry often causes people with social anxiety to avoid social situations. Social anxiety disorder can manifest in a range of situations, such as within the workplace or the school environment.
Agoraphobia: People with agoraphobia have an intense fear of two or more of the following situations:
Using public transportation
Being in open spaces
Being in enclosed spaces
Standing in line or being in a crowd
Being outside of the home alone
People with agoraphobia often avoid these situations, in part, because they think being able to leave might be difficult or impossible in the event they have panic-like reactions or other embarrassing symptoms. In the most severe form of agoraphobia, an individual can become housebound.
Separation anxiety disorder: Separation anxiety is often thought of as something that only children deal with; however, adults can also be diagnosed with separation anxiety disorder. People who have separation anxiety disorder have fears about being parted from people to whom they are attached. They often worry that some sort of harm or something untoward will happen to their attachment figures while they are separated. This fear leads them to avoid being separated from their attachment figures and to avoid being alone. People with separation anxiety may have nightmares about being separated from attachment figures or experience physical symptoms when separation occurs or is anticipated.
Risk Factors
Researchers are finding that both genetic and environmental factors contribute to the risk of developing an anxiety disorder. Although the risk factors for each type of anxiety disorder can vary, some general risk factors for all types of anxiety disorders include:
Temperamental traits of shyness or behavioral inhibition in childhood
Exposure to stressful and negative life or environmental events in early childhood or adulthood
A history of anxiety or other mental illnesses in biological relatives
Some physical health conditions, such as thyroid problems or heart arrhythmias, or caffeine or other substances/medications, can produce or aggravate anxiety symptoms; a physical health examination is helpful in the evaluation of a possible anxiety disorder.
Treatments and Therapies
Anxiety disorders are generally treated with psychotherapy, medication, or both. There are many ways to treat anxiety and people should work with their doctor to choose the treatment that is best for them.
Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy or “talk therapy” can help people with anxiety disorders. To be effective, psychotherapy must be directed at the person’s specific anxieties and tailored to his or her needs.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an example of one type of psychotherapy that can help people with anxiety disorders. It teaches people different ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to anxiety-producing and fearful objects and situations. CBT can also help people learn and practice social skills, which is vital for treating social anxiety disorder.
Cognitive therapy and exposure therapy are two CBT methods that are often used, together or by themselves, to treat social anxiety disorder. Cognitive therapy focuses on identifying, challenging, and then neutralizing unhelpful or distorted thoughts underlying anxiety disorders. Exposure therapy focuses on confronting the fears underlying an anxiety disorder to help people engage in activities they have been avoiding. Exposure therapy is sometimes used along with relaxation exercises and/or imagery.
CBT can be conducted individually or with a group of people who have similar difficulties. Often “homework” is assigned for participants to complete between sessions.
Medication
Medication does not cure anxiety disorders but can help relieve symptoms. Medication for anxiety is prescribed by doctors, such as a psychiatrist or primary care provider. Some states also allow psychologists who have received specialized training to prescribe psychiatric medications. The most common classes of medications used to combat anxiety disorders are anti-anxiety drugs (such as benzodiazepines), antidepressants, and beta-blockers.
Anti-Anxiety Medications
Anti-anxiety medications can help reduce the symptoms of anxiety, panic attacks, or extreme fear and worry. The most common anti-anxiety medications are called benzodiazepines. Although benzodiazepines are sometimes used as first-line treatments for generalized anxiety disorder, they have both benefits and drawbacks.
Some benefits of benzodiazepines are that they are effective in relieving anxiety and take effect more quickly than antidepressant medications often prescribed for anxiety. Some drawbacks of benzodiazepines are that people can build up a tolerance to them if they are taken over a long period of time and they may need higher and higher doses to get the same effect. Some people may even become dependent on them.
To avoid these problems, doctors usually prescribe benzodiazepines for short periods of time, a practice that is especially helpful for older adults, people who have substance abuse problems, and people who become dependent on medication easily.
If people suddenly stop taking benzodiazepines, they may have withdrawal symptoms, or their anxiety may return. Therefore, benzodiazepines should be tapered off slowly. When you and your doctor have decided it is time to stop the medication, the doctor will help you slowly and safely decrease your dose.
For long-term use, benzodiazepines are often considered a second-line treatment for anxiety (with antidepressants being considered a first-line treatment) as well as an “as-needed” treatment for any distressing flare-ups of symptoms.
A different type of anti-anxiety medication is buspirone. Buspirone is a non-benzodiazepine medication specifically indicated for the treatment of chronic anxiety, although it does not help everyone.
Antidepressants
Antidepressants are used to treat depression, but they can also be helpful for treating anxiety disorders. They may help improve the way your brain uses certain chemicals that control mood or stress. You may need to try several different antidepressant medicines before finding the one that improves your symptoms and has manageable side effects. A medication that has helped you or a close family member in the past will often be considered.
Antidepressants can take time to work, so it’s important to give the medication a chance before reaching a conclusion about its effectiveness. If you begin taking antidepressants, do not stop taking them without the help of a doctor. When you and your doctor have decided it is time to stop the medication, the doctor will help you slowly and safely decrease your dose. Stopping them abruptly can cause withdrawal symptoms.
Antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are commonly used as first-line treatments for anxiety. Less-commonly used — but effective — treatments for anxiety disorders are older classes of antidepressants, such as tricyclic antidepressants and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs).
Support Groups
Some people with anxiety disorders might benefit from joining a self-help or support group and sharing their problems and achievements with others. Internet chat rooms might also be useful, but any advice received over the internet should be used with caution, as Internet acquaintances have usually never seen each other and what has helped one person is not necessarily what is best for another. You should always check with your doctor before following any treatment advice found on the internet. Talking with a trusted friend or member of the clergy can also provide support, but it is not necessarily a sufficient alternative to care from a doctor or other health professional.

SPIRITUALITY
How To Use Reiki To Calm Anxiety
By Kelsey J. PatelSpiritual Coach & Reiki Master
Kelsey Patel is a spiritual empowerment coach and certified Reiki master who’s on a mission to help people around the world tap into their true power. In mbg’s newest class, Reiki Healing 101: Decrease Stress, Balance Your Body & Break Through Negative Energy, she introduces you to the healing powers of Reiki, covering everything from its history to modern applications and how you can use Reiki to transform your life.
The practice of Reiki can offer clarity, energy, and happiness, but the No. 1 feeling my Reiki clients usually emerge with is an immense sense of peace and calm. The energy healing practice is an amazing tool to add to your anxiety-fighting repertoire.
For those of you who are a bit skeptical of energy healing practices, I get it. Before I transitioned into this career, I worked as a staffer in the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C., for several years, and let’s just say we weren’t talking about crystals and chakras in the hallways. I was one of the biggest skeptics I knew about all things spiritual.
But by the time I first received Reiki in Los Angeles, I had massive anxiety. I was constantly worrying, doubting, stressing, and feeling nervous and agitated. There was a lot going on in my life, and it weighed on me in the form of immense physical back pain. The kind that makes you question how long you can keep living life.
When a friend recommended Reiki, I was hesitant, but I knew I needed a major change. Desperate for anything that might help relieve the physical and emotional pain, I went in for my first session. While I can’t even tell you how I felt that first time, I do know that I felt better by the end. My anxiety seemed to subside temporarily—which was practically a miracle—and my back felt better.
I didn’t get it. How could I feel so much lighter when the practitioner wasn’t even touching me for most of the session? After several months of going in for regular Reiki, I decided to go ahead and learn how to practice it at home whenever I felt my stress levels rising.
How I learned to perform Reiki on myself to deal with anxiety.
Reiki is an energy healing modality intended to help create balance and harmony in the body’s energy fields. By utilizing the secondary palm chakras, the practitioner is able to channel life force energy. This can be transferred to the areas in need with the simple movement of the hands. And the wonderful thing about it is you can learn to be your own practitioner and transfer some of this energy yourself.
In many ways, Reiki is like an active meditation. You are consciously connecting and releasing that which no longer serves you in order to allow the body, mind, and spirit to receive the energy it needs for balance. If you can imagine and remember that we are all made up of energy (thanks, Einstein!), then you can begin to believe that you hold the ability shift your energy any time.
Give this five-minute exercise a try to do so right now:
Lie down and allow yourself to get comfortable.
Place your hands behind your head, palms cradling the back of your skull.
For the next two minutes, allow yourself to breathe deeply and begin to imagine your palms are sending healing energy into the mind to release the energy and thoughts that no longer serve you, and see your mind being filled with peace, light, and calm thoughts. Once you feel your mind soften, place your hands over your heart.
Allow the same energy of light and healing to come into your heart space. See your heart releasing any heaviness, pain, stress, or undue burden as you slowly emit energy and light from your palms to heal your human heart.
Gently open your eyes and notice how the mind and body feel together.
If you’ve ever experienced an overactive mind like mine or struggled with feelings of anxiety, Reiki may be a new avenue for you to release them.

 

 

 

All About Bipolar Disorder

screenshot_20190305-164801

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.
There are basically three types of bipolar disorder-
1.Bipolar I Disorder— defined by manic episodes that last at least 7 days, or by manic symptoms that are so severe that the person needs immediate hospital care. Usually, depressive episodes occur as well, typically lasting at least 2 weeks. Episodes of depression with mixed features (having depression and manic symptoms at the same time) are also possible.
2.Bipolar II Disorder— defined by a pattern of depressive episodes and hypomanic episodes, but not the full-blown manic episodes described above.
3.Cyclothymic Disorder- (also called cyclothymia)— defined by numerous periods of hypomanic symptoms as well numerous periods of depressive symptoms lasting for at least 2 years (1 year in children and adolescents). However, the symptoms do not meet the diagnostic requirements for a hypomanic episode and a depressive episode

screenshot_20190305-164637

Signs and Symptoms

People with bipolar disorder experience periods of unusually intense emotion, changes in sleep patterns and activity levels, and unusual behaviors. These distinct periods are called “mood episodes.” Mood episodes are drastically different from the moods and behaviors that are typical for the person. Extreme changes in energy, activity, and sleep go along with mood episodes.
Sometimes a mood episode includes symptoms of both manic and depressive symptoms. This is called an episode with mixed features. People experiencing an episode with mixed features may feel very sad, empty, or hopeless, while at the same time feeling extremely energized.

Bipolar disorder can be present even when mood swings are less extreme. For example, some people with bipolar disorder experience hypomania, a less severe form of mania. During a hypomanic episode, an individual may feel very good, be highly productive, and function well. The person may not feel that anything is wrong, but family and friends may recognize the mood swings and/or changes in activity levels as possible bipolar disorder. Without proper treatment, people with hypomania may develop severe mania or depression.

Scientists are studying the possible causes of bipolar disorder. Most agree that there is no single cause. Instead, it is likely that many factors contribute to the illness or increase risk.

Brain Structure and Functioning: Some studies show how the brains of people with bipolar disorder may differ from the brains of healthy people or people with other mental disorders. Learning more about these differences, along with new information from genetic studies, helps scientists better understand bipolar disorder and predict which types of treatment will work most effectively.

Genetics: Some research suggests that people with certain genes are more likely to develop bipolar disorder than others. But genes are not the only risk factor for bipolar disorder. Studies of identical twins have shown that even if one twin develops bipolar disorder, the other twin does not always develop the disorder, despite the fact that identical twins share all of the same genes.

Family History: Bipolar disorder tends to run in families. Children with a parent or sibling who has bipolar disorder are much more likely to develop the illness, compared with children who do not have a family history of the disorder. However, it is important to note that most people with a family history of bipolar disorder will not develop the illness.

General Treatment- Treatment helps many people—even those with the most severe forms of bipolar disorder—gain better control of their mood swings and other bipolar symptoms. An effective treatment plan usually includes a combination of medication and psychotherapy (also called “talk therapy”). Bipolar disorder is a lifelong illness. Episodes of mania and depression typically come back over time. Between episodes, many people with bipolar disorder are free of mood changes, but some people may have lingering symptoms. Long-term, continuous treatment helps to control these symptoms.
Medications

Different types of medications can help control symptoms of bipolar disorder. An individual may need to try several different medications before finding ones that work best.

Medications generally used to treat bipolar disorder include:
Mood stabilizer
Atypical antipsychotics
Antidepressants
Psychotherapy

When done in combination with medication, psychotherapy (also called “talk therapy”) can be an effective treatment for bipolar disorder. It can provide support, education, and guidance to people with bipolar disorder and their families. Some psychotherapy treatments used to treat bipolar disorder include:
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Family-focused therapy
Interpersonal and social rhythm therapy
Psychoeducation

Treatment By Reiki- As bipolar disorder affects just about every aspect of the human behavior and with the reiki as a means of channeling positive universal energy, there just could be a spark that could make the link in reiki bipolar disorder treatment. In most cases of bipolar disorders, the medications given can be quite uncomfortable hence patients are becoming referred to alternative forms of therapy and even therapies. Given that bipolar is what you can refer to as a manic depressive state, reiki could rather properly function in the relaxation and keeping at peace of the manic stage.

Reiki therapy relaxes and rejuvenates the inner state of the bipolar. This is the very same as eliminating or washing out all the negative forces and energies that are concealed inside the manic depressive individual and ultimately pushes itself to burst out in proportions that are not adequate. As bipolar disorder affects considerably the whole human behavior meaning thoughts, feelings, perception and all the rest, so shall the universal energy generated by reiki as channeled via the practitioner be proportionately distributed all through the locations with certain require to be soothed.
