It was at that moment, when he closed his eyes, a realization, that was unknown until this time, dawned at him.

And that made him feel unexpectedly buoyant.

Drunk on his new-found power, he wondered, “It’s so easy. It takes years to grow and all it takes is a little push to extinguish a life!”

They knew, their quarrel was unjust, still they argued, every day.

Sometimes, people would intervene but mostly they gathered around to witness the spectacle.

That day, the sparks of their hatred fell on the crowd.

That day justice was delivered swiftly by the lynching mob as they tossed their body parts at the circling vultures.

Every day, he walks the same route.

He leaves his home precisely at 6.30 am.

By 6.45 am, he reaches the kiosk to buy cigarettes.

He takes the deserted by-lane as a shortcut to the park at 6.55 am.

That’s where we’ll jump him and throw him in the waiting car. It won’t be easy!

An unmistakable crackle of excitement was in the air as they arranged the bottles.

A moment of hesitation… but curiosity got the better of them.

They cringed at the taste inwardly but feigned liking it.

Lowered inhibitions led to impulsiveness to drive the night away.

‘Hit-and-run crash: Drunk teenagers kill one’, screamed the morning headlines.

Life’s about choices. It’s these choices that define us.

Making a big decision is scary.

But you know, what’s even scarier?

Regret!

Today, I’m saving us from lifelong ignominy.

I’m letting the 2 Ps – Pride and Purse define my life.

So, you will have to go, little girl. But don’t worry, it’ll be quick.

PS : “Pride” refers to pride of having a male child which is lost with the birth of girl child. Also, some clans (upper castes and tribes) would rather murder female infants than give them to a rival group even in marriage. “Purse” refers to the dowry as girls are seen as an economic burden.

OZiva Protein & Herbs Review + High Protein Indian Vegetarian Recipes

While it is no surprise to find the nutrition market thriving with several product ranges with different health claims, the most famed are the protein shakes.

With almost 70% of the Indians lacking in protein, there are many brands that have come up with protein supplements. But how do you tell which protein shake is the best? Though all claim to be the best for you, some are high on sugar or sucralose. Some may contain protein from sources like Soy which can pose as an allergen in some cases.

While looking for the perfect kind of product, something that gives more than just Protein – I stumbled upon OZiva Protein & Herbs shake. A quick 1 min analysis told me it has high quality protein (source is whey protein) blended with Ayurvedic Herbs and Essential Vitamins & Minerals.

Here’s all that you need to know about OZiva’s Protein & Herbs shake:

  1. High Quality Protein- It is easily one of the healthy and wholesome protein rich food option that one can have for a power-packed breakfast or post workout. It gives more than 30 gm of protein per scoop when taken with milk & the source used in one variant is Whey Protein
  2. Blended with Ayurvedic Herbs Specially for Women and Men, respectively – The protein is enriched with an ayurvedic herbal blend that is something to watch out for! With the choicest herbs specific to women as well as men, ranging from Shatavari (for hormonal balance and vitality), and Ashwagandha (for stress release), Tulsi (for its purification properties: boosts hair health and even, clear skin tone), and Green Tea Extract (powerhouse of antioxidants to help you burn all that extra flab!) Ginger (as an immunity booster) and not only that, but also the goodness of Omega 3 (traced from plant sources to suit vegetarian preferences), this product stands as an impressive choice for everyone.
  3. Yummilicious – It’s Yummy and Tasty with its easy mixability and delicious cocoa flavour, it can be easily blended with absolutely anything- be it, dark chocolate or oats or fruits or even nuts. The result is deliciously indulgent yet healthy shake.
  4. It takes less than 5 min to prepare – Perfect on-the-go option when one is running short on time and needs a quick fix for a healthy meal!
  5. Low in Sugar – Most importantly- Protein & Herbs shake is low in sugar and yet tastes amazing! If you are trying to watch out your fat% and food habits, this shake will help you be on the right health track.
  6. Free Diet Consultation – The diet consultation is absolutely free with the product and it’s admirable that the brand has taken such a customer friendly approach

How can you put it to better use?

The best part about Protein & Herbs is that not only is it nutritionally enriching, but it is also flexible enough to be used in any form other than just a shake!

Here are few Protein Rich Indian Vegetarian Recipes that can be tried at home:

I sense people staring, but are they really looking at me, I wondered.

Will they sense my hesitation? Or hear the tremble in my voice?

Will the inner turmoil show in my eyes?

Ah! The answers I seek as I wait at the corner of a busy street, to meet the strangers of the night.

Thanks a lot, Sid for your inputs!

The battles raging within overwhelms him.

He swings like a pendulum between hope and despair.

Ryan rummaged through the kitchen cabinets to find mugs.

As he poured the coffee, he saw the unspoken question in Luke’s eyes.

“Relax, I’ve got it covered”, said Ryan with his usual nonchalance.

Luke appeared skeptical.

“This house belongs to the prison chief who’ll be searching for us all night”, explained Ryan with a wink.
