Since a month my health is taking a tole on me.July end I got viral for two days followed by cough and cold for two weeks which I completely ignored and then diarrhea this Sunday morning.I am a person who rarely falls ill and if i do then it takes miles long for me to recuperate.But this time unlike my previous illness i fell prone to hiccups.Hiccups are generally taken lightly as according to many belief they are harmless.Yesterday afternoon i started with loud noise of hiccups.Though my stomach was upset I couldn't resist pastry and hiccups with slight stomach ache made me apprehensive.I thought pastry was the result of my hiccups.By and large people have 2-3 glasses of water which subside the hiccups but it didn't happened with me but being engrossed here and there i ignored it.By evening my hiccups subsided.

My husband arrived I cooked curd rice for myself as a light meal and made sandwich for my husband.we slept after playing scrabble.At around 2:30 I again started having hiccups.Disgusted I was as fear of hiccups being continued for whole night irked me to hell.I drank and drank water.It did no help.So I Google cures of hiccups.
Following were the cure mentioned

1.Take a deep breath and count 1,2---10(They will vanish in a minute and there were comments "thanks it really did wonders")
I tried and tried but of no avail.

2.Stand up tighten your body and exhale.
Tried 3-4 times and it didn't help.

3.Ask some one to close your temples as you might not do it properly.

Already an hour had passed I woke my husband up and asked him to do it.He half asleep did it.But no avail.

To forget my hiccups I started watching you tube where i was learning how to gift rap .But till how long I would have watched them.I again Google searched this time there was an new idea.Take a spoon full of sugar ,plug in your ears and close your temples with some one else help and gulp sugar with a glass of water..

Cant believe they stopped in second.Relieved i was I slept at 4 a.m.

Got up at 9 and I was having tea and was discussing with my husband what a incredible method it was to stop hiccups.Before having tea i had my diarrhea medicine and too my disbelief I started having hiccups again.Imagining myself going through the same trauma again made me cry.I again used the same trick but it didn't help this time.

After an hour I again tried out.My husband closed my ear and i closed my temples and gulped sugar with water.Phew!! they were gone..

Sitting at home I want to let other know the easy and simple trick.Though i am going to visit the doctor for continuous hiccups problem but for a first aid its a complete full on.And last but not the least I salute Google for elucidating all problem of life.:)

Live in or live out!!

I know i have been playing tau rant since long on my blog.Some recent incidents dragged me away from it.Generally I am the 3rd-4th person who post a comment on my favorite ZB,Aparna and sujata blog and now i ended up being the last one.In fact they have moved two post ahead before i catch the previous one.Anyway,will try catching them up again religiously.:)

Time flies away at least the effortless one.A year back when apprehension of getting married and to whom flourished in me I literary had goose bumps thinking about it.But now I am some what at peace with my mind.Marriage almost solves your biggest problem or may be I should say a life partner of your desire solves all your biggest apprehension.But Marriage brings bounteous changes in a women.Today I take myself more responsible for things which I never thought.Now i value my life more as there are many life attached with me.My thoughts and action affect people around me.It did before also but now at a greater degree of extent.Responsibility comes in different form for instance If i don't feel like cooking I realize there is my husband who wish for dinner at night after having a oily mid day meal in his office. I can easily say no to him but his health is my concerned too now.I wish for healthy him through out his life.

I really wonder what will happen If i have kids.Trying to make there every day best and making sure there life runs as smooth as possible will drive me nuts i guess.These changes were never realized and were never expected before marriage.All was expected was a life partner and loads of fun:D.

What made me write this post is due to my recent encounter with a women.Women is in her late 20s .She is a director of a company.And how she became a director is a simple tale.Difficult it may sound but MD of the company is her boyfriend so must have been a easy ride for the lady.MD is a pass out of IIT and IIM and started his own venture .They both met and than they say rest is history.Living in a posh colony and running there venture and making it big is there ultimate goal .This women doesn't believe in holy matrimony and always questions it.She called marriage as a stamp and believed it to be an end of women liberation.Surprising part was every person in the organization consider it true.Employees in there 30s had no intention to get married.Of course desire to have a girlfriend or boyfriend and a live in relationship was not a problem at all.

If I would have happen to come across these people a year ago my perception of this organization have been so called FAB.But now as I am married today I know the difference between a boyfriend and a husband.Distinction between two is like of a mother who has given birth to a child and a women who has adopted one to avoid labor pain.Years of live in can never bring that affection ,concern and love what marriage brings.Vary desire to make every thing possible as option of escape doesn't exist is untraceable in a live in relationship.

Sad part is as employees idealize their directors they have happened to follow the same loop which in turn has helped the organization in big way.They make employees work for 12hrs and make them feel proud about themselves as they are liberated.But i really wonder for what purpose on earth they are born.To live a commitment free life with no family ?These kind of women are generally disowned by their families .Their desire to achieve success at every cost will ever make them an ideal person in their own eyes?
