CARE FOR CARPETS


Carpet is a fabric for covering a floor. It creates a stylish ambience & enhances the beauty of the house. Carpets are available in various shapes, sizes, materials & mediums from many different countries. Carpets need to be maintained well for looking good and last long.

                                              IMAGES of carpet के लिए चित्र परिणाम


Let’s focus on the few tips of care &cleaning of the carpets:
Carpets can be cleaned in two ways; (a) wet cleaning or shampooing
  (b) Dry cleaning.
In wet cleaning or shampooing, a detergent which dries to a powder is advisable. When the carpet is dry, the dried detergent plus the loosened dirt can be picked up with a vacuum cleaner before the actual shampooing is carried out. With the suitable detergent diluted, as per directions using hand scrubbing or by a rotatory scrubbing machine the carpet is cleaned.

STORIES



image of storytelling के लिए चित्र परिणाम

          
Stories are mixture of emotions
Ethics, thoughts, messages in verbal motion
Threads of ages, more mature in milestones
Grandparents’ modulations, mimics and memories
Originated as a medium of self-expression
Flourished as a wand of promotion
Reaching to urban and rural world
Conquering trust and quorum
Introduced as a taste of creativity
Bloomed into a ubiquitous flavour
Energizing kids, kith and kin with kittens and king
Boredom was kicked out with kinetic knock.
Supple of fables, graphics and animations

From dawn to dusk; elder to younger; it’s a companion.

Soup is a savoury liquid dish made by boiling meat, fish, or vegetables in stock or water. Soups are served at the beginning of the meal.  Soups are prepared almost in every house hold. Health benefits of consuming soups are also familiar.  Fine whole some soups can be made in a great many varieties but only with good basic soup stocks; they require imagination, skill and patient labour. Must in the making of the soup are stock, milk, careful selection of all ingredients, slow boiling, careful skimming, and degreasing and proper straining.

Broth Soups come under clear soups- fish, beef, game, chicken. Clear soup need to be clear in the first instance and not clarified twice, each clarification meaning loss of strength.

BOOK REVIEW OF MELODY’S KEY




image of the book Melody's key के लिए चित्र परिणाम





Melody’s key is a Love story of Tegan (who is later, Named as Tegan Melody Lockwood) and Mason Keane. Both share same passion for Music & they write songs of their own & play piano, guitar with equal amount of interest. Mason a pop star of high acclaim & fan following comes to stay in the Lockwood manor maintained by Tegan’s family. Tegan’s hobbies like painting, drawing, reading, music & art fetches her the love-life.

“Good shepherd, tell this youth what ’tis to love,
It is to be all made of sighs and tears;-
It is to be all made of faith and service;-
It is to be all made of fantasy,
All made of passion, and all made of wishes;
All adoration, duty, and observance,
All humbleness, all patience, and impatience,
All purity, all trial, all observance”
(This from ACT V of Comedy of Errors by Shakespeare)

Author Dallas Coryell‘s Hero Mason sticks to the above said description of LOVE. Testimony to this comes in the form of returning the KEY to Tegan, Releasing their home from the Mortgage loan & handing it over to their parents & regaining the Tegan’s scholarship.

This novel focuses on the impact of financial crisis, which leads the entire family in the autumn season to work in various sphere to meet their ends. Author’s point about the debt, I quote “The debt has always been this evil beast, waiting in the shadows, forever stalking…. Waiting to strike and take everything away.”

Giving priority to the family is a special feature of this novel. Family that eats together, stays together is justified in a very fine tune. Tegan drops out of her education because of the family difficulties. Parents too don’t reveal their debts so as not to disturb their children’s lives. This shows the care & parenting expertise of Mr&Mrs. Lockwood.

Food & Music are part & parcel of this novel. Detailing the preparation of pancakes with different flavours & toppings fulfilling everyone’s needs is a noteworthy point. Music takes a prime place in the novel and songs too are pleasant to read. The Kiss, Blue oceans, Into You, Don’t say Good Bye, Soul of my Soul are the song in the novel.

Prominently, celebrities’ lives are thought as more lavishing & grand, never thought about their darker side, many misunderstanding envelope them & they lead more stressful life. Tegan was also in the same mind set like many people & felt happy to come out of the perspective, I quote “Tegan was grateful for the darkness and distraction of the walk, which allowed her to conceal the mist forming in her eyes.”  She gets clear about Mason.

Author Dallas Coryell is a musician living in Michigan, USA and his work ‘Melody’s key’ is a romantic fiction. KEY in this novel is a symbol of support, energy & positivity to the heroine Tegan. This key discloses her the earlier life of her grandparents, Letters are the major communication in those days, if not destroyed, they expose the secret. Likewise Tegan read those letters and came to know about their love life. Author is successful in bringing out the deep sense of love & sacrifice of violet Patterson.


Melody’s key opens up the Romance in Lymington in about 21 chapters and moves rhythmically with appropriate titles for each chapter.

WORLD DAY AGAINST CHILD LABOUR



                                        image of world day against child labour 2017 के लिए चित्र परिणाम


CHILD LABOUR
                                                                               

Child labour is a slaughter
Which seizes their laughter
They miss their tutors

Child labour is a process
In which they lose their progress
Child labour is a crime
But it became their prime

Child labour spoils the child
And they become wild

Child labour must be stopped
Tools must be dropped
And they must be topped.

A child should be a learner
But never be a labourer
And they should become learned

A child should be a literate
To change his fate
But never so late


To do now
Is to sow

The seed of awareness
