Christmas and New Year definitely call for a short vacation. It’s also that time of the year when most schools and colleges close for winter vacation so if you have kids then this is perhaps the perfect time to take them on a much-needed break. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, it actually wouldn’t be a bad idea to go somewhere where you will be able to enjoy this festive season in all its glory.

Simple ayurvedic remedies can be very effective in preventing various winter ailments. These remedies can be easily prepared at home and, the good thing is, they have no side effects.

Our election circus

We have been having more than our fair share of election mania lately, what with our recent history of holding elections on a biennial basis. Every time an election is announced, the circus seems to come to town.
