Breathers in Meeting

Our office life is boring and so are the after lunch meetings. After coming to Chennai I have gotten into a habit of having rice in lunch. This generally leads to sleepy eyes and no concentration on what boss is saying. Sometimes we feel so sleepy that we actually try to hide behind our colleagues to close our eyes just for 5 seconds. The good solution to these things is to have a fun activity after every 30 minute in the meeting. I have come up with a few activities. These might not be super hilarious or super interesting, but it will make sure that people are not sleepy and they are listening to what you are saying.

    • Names And Adjectives: In this activity, participants describe themselves with an adjective. The adjective should start with the same letter as the first letter of their name. For example, I am Spriha and I am silly. As they say the adjective, they can also mime an action that describes the adjective.

    • Match The Cards: The facilitator chooses famous phrases, writes the first half of the phrase on a piece of paper and the second half of the phrase on another piece of paper. These papers are kept at one place. Each participant picks one piece and then they start to find people who has the 2nd part of the phrase.

    • Who Is The Leader: In this activity, the participants sit in a circle and one person is chosen to go out of the room. When he is out of the room, the participants choose a leader. They decide few actions. For example, clapping, blinking eyes, foot tapping, and so on. The one standing outside is then called inside and is made to stand in the center. The group starts to follow the leader. They have to continue the actions for a set time. The followers will have to copy the leader in such a way that the person standing in the center should not notice it. If the person can guess who the leader is, he wins and the leader has to go outside next. The rest of the group then chooses a new leader.

    • Name With Both Hands: This is a quick activity. The participants have to write their name with both hands simultaneously. We have to ignore the hand writing, but the letters should be of the correct shape.

    • Who Am I: In this the facilitator puts a sheet on the back of one participant. On the paper the name of a famous personality should be written. The participant has to move around the table and will have to ask other questions. The others can give an answer in yes or no. For example, if the name is Sachin Tendulkar, the participant can ask “Am I a Player?” and the rest says “Yes”. If he asks “Am I a football player?”, the rest say “No”.

    • A’s And B’s: In this activity, each participant is asked to think of one person as their A person and the other as their B person. Their need not be any criteria for the same. Once they have decided, the facilitator asks them to move as close to A person and as far away from B person. After a minute, reverse it. Each person has to move towards their B person and away from their A person.

    • Group Statues: In this, the participants are asked to move freely around the room. The facilitator then shouts and asks them to make a statue of something and the group will have to do so. For example, The facilitator shouts “Strong”, the group will have to make a statue that depicts strength as per them without talking.

    • I Am Going On  A Trip: The participants sit in a circle. A person starts with: “I am going on a trip..” and he adds an action. for example, “I am going on a trip and taking blessing”. He takes blessing from the person sitting on his right. That person then has to say something like “I am going on a trip, taking blessing and patting someone”. This guy has to act each action. This goes on and each member keeps adding an action to the existing actions and enacting them.
    • Five Islands: In this make 5 circles on the floor and name each island. Warm each participant that one of the islands will sink. When all are in their respective island, shout out the name of the island that will sink. The participants standing on that island will have to move to the other 4 islands. Keep doing that till only one island is left.
    • Paper And Ball: In this activity, the group should be divided in teams of 2. One person will have a register and a paper ball. They have to walk and throw the paper ball with the register to each other and will keep moving to a desired spot where a dust bin can be placed. The final throw should put  the paper ball into the dust bin. The team that does that wins.
    • Don’t Answer: Everyone sits in a circle. On person asks question to the person sitiing to his opposite. The one to whom the question was asked should not answer it himself, but the person on his left should. They can make any imaginary story.

  • Bottle Game: In this, the team is made to sit in a circle. A bottle is passed to each member. They have to do something with the bottle, for example, rotate it, shake it, and so on. Once everyone has done it, the participants will have to do what they did to the bottle to the person sitting on their right.

Fifty shades of Grey_Movie_2015

Fifty shades is an American erotic film series. The stars, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, are playing the lead roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

The film starts with Anastasia “Ana” Steele, a literature student, who goes to interview the wealthy Christian Grey. She is the perfect innocent and naive girl, who finds Christian Grey very intimidating. Christian Grey likes the innocence in her and wants to meet her more. They start going out. Christian gifts her a phone and a laptop so that he can constantly be in contact with her. When Ana is about to get happy about everything going on amongst her and Christian, he comes up with paper work for relationship. Ana is shocked about the same. She is unable to understand the need of a contract for a relationship. That is when Christian comes up with his obsession on being a dominant.

Ana finds it funny. But, Christian is serious about his contract. It is a detailed contract. It specifies every detail about the type of relationship they will have, and what are the limits to which the relationship could go. The contract is on BDSM(submission, dominance, and so on). Grey is open to negotiate on the terms. He also shows her his play room. It is his own private place. The room remains locked all the time. It is the place where he keeps all the tools(Anal hook, Bondage cuffs, and so on).

The story continues and Christian comes to know that Ana had never had a sexual relationship. Christian and Ana make love. The contract has yet not been signed and Christian wants Ana to make the decision as he is unable to let her go. Ana finally agrees to take a look at the contract. She wants to negotiate the terms and conditions. Ana was not happy at first but she treats the relationship as a business. They hold the meeting in his office. They exchange their notes. As per the contract, Ana was supposed to be with Christian from Friday to Sunday. Christian was happy that Ana had taken this seriously and being a dominant, he gave her a day of the week where they can go on date like a normal couple. He wanted to make love with her, but Ana just kept him that way.

Ana starts coming to his home. They make love. But, he never lets her touch him. He has a past, which has made him a demon that he is now. Ana wishes to know. They sleep in separate rooms. There are moments when Ana is not happy with the kind of relationship. She is not feeling loved. She gets a call from her mother and she breaks down. Christian comes to know about her plans of visiting her mother in a family dinner and gets angry. Ana calms him down.

When she boards the plane, she is informed that her seat has been upgraded to business class. Christian had done the same. She reaches there and meets her mother. She was out with her mother and was going to have her drink, when he gets a message from Christian not to. She comes to know that he is nearby. He takes her on an outing where they fly a glider. Christian constantly says that he is not a romantic, but these things make things romantic for Ana.

Till now Ana has not signed the contract. Christian wants her to sign it as they have discussed every detail of the contract. But Ana wants more. She wants Christian to open up. She wants to know more about Christian. Christian admits that he has never felt the way he feels for her, but he can not fall in love. It is the way he is. He likes to punish and reward his subs. Ana wants to know how bad he can get. She asks him to show her. He takes her to his play room. Asks her to bend and tells her that he whip her on her butt for 6 times and she has to count. She prepares herself for the same and he starts whipping. He whips so hard that tears start flowing from her eyes. She is hurt and she never wants Christian to touch her again. She is hurt that it pleases Christian to hurt her like that. She leaves.

My opinion about this movie is that you can watch it once but not more than that. It is a normal love story with lot of erotica. In some countries these scenes have been censored. So in those countries there is no point watching the movie. I was discussing the story with my friend, and our reaction was that it is a complete impossible kind of fiction. But the movie is nice to watch. It has some good soft porn. Ana has a nice body and Christian is awesome too. Girls can ask their boy friends to see the movie for tips. BUT, how can such a wealthy guy be into BDSM and stay wealthy? Is it possible? Also, if we come across such a guy, who owns a play room for BDSM, the first thing we would do is complaint to the police. I would be horrified if my boy friend comes out to be a freak. I would start to think of him as a serial killer. This movie is a complete fantasy. Many bloggers have said that it is like the story of Twilight except for that they are not vampires. I am waiting to watch the uncut version of the second part, fifty shades darker.

Beauty Precautions for Holi

Holi is a festival of colors. It is a festival of joy where people play, chase and color each other with colored powder and water. What bothers most is how to deal with skin and hair issues caused by rampant use of artificial colors. Here are a few tips:

  • Apply oil to your hair and body. You might not want to look oily and end up applying shampoo on your hair, but please do not. It will be a blunder. The colors tend to make your skin dry. If your scalp is dry, the colors will not come out easily and will cause itchiness and dandruff. You can apply oil on face too. If you do not want  to apply oil on face, at least apply a thick layer of moisturizer and sunscreen. Though if water is used, they tend to wash away leaving your wet face exposed to sun and harmful colors.

  • Apply nail paint on you nails. It will act as a seal and protect your nails from getting colored. Apply oil and cream on the cuticle and the space between the nail and skin.

  • Once you are back home after playing Holi, you can use a remover to remove the nail paint. Wash yourself from head to toe. You might need to wash your hair multiple times.

  • Do not use nails to take off the colors from you skin. Try using a cloth to rub the surfaces. The colors might not go on day 1. The complete week might be required to wash off the colors completely. Wash the inside of your ears.
  • Once you have bathed, apply moisturizer on your face and body. Clean the nails properly. For the complete week you might have to follow the routine to completely get rid of the colors.

  • Even after following this routine you might find red patches on your skin. Your face might become flaky. Do not worry. You just have to keep moisturizing the skin. The tan will also fade.

Do not be afraid of colors. Enjoy and drench yourself. Just take the precautions. Holi comes once in a year. Happy Holi!!
