For the record, I have not seen every TV series ever produced. However, I have watched a few & I believe these TV shows are worth a shot. So, here are lesser-known TV series that are worth watching.


The Wire:

A DEA team is set up in Baltimore to capture drug traffickers. The story seems to be simple, but it contains all the drama. The difficulty in finding loose ends & to decode practices is thrilling to watch. I have never seen any TV series which build side characters as much as this has built. The story is fantastically written & one can experience the fabulous acting of Idris Elba. Even after the season ends, you will feel to know about the characters more. You are so much engrossed in the characters that you want to live their life.


The Wire

Chernobyl:

Chernobyl had an accident in a nuclear reactor that resulted in the death of few people as per Russian Govt records. However, this was a cover-up story. As per unofficial records, the accident was massive & it resulted in the death of thousands & there is no counting as such. This series will take you through the horrifying journey of accident & its after-effects. Chernobyl is considered as the worst nuclear disaster in human history. The story is intriguing & exciting & hard to put down once started. This also symbolizes the downfall of the soviet union.


Chernobyl

The Office:

A satirical comedy will tickle every bone in your body. The storyline is very simple but the punches are simply awesome.

Dark:

A time-traveling concept is mind-bending & exciting at the same well. There is hardly any time travel story that will glue you to the screen. The dark is a german TV series that is on high ranks. The story is pretty complex to explain. A child vanishes & his father starts to look for the clues. The story takes a turn when he realizes his son is his friend’s husband. The shocking plot will take you to much farther than this for more you will have to watch this series. The storytelling is great & also fantastic plot makes it worth a watch.

Osho was a cult guru in his time. His story is somehow hidden to this world. Some unfortunate incidents force him to abandon India & move to the USA. However, this is not all, his followers are madly devoted to him & one of those followers is Maa Sheela. Wild Wild Country is an epic disaster tale of a cult. The whole group moves to a ranch & how things take a downturn is mentioned in the series. The high flier of this series apart from the storyline is music. A wonderful journey inside the religious practices & what makes them so successful.


Wild Wild Country

Band of Brothers:

Band of brothers is a mini-series created by Tom Hanks & Steven Speilberg. The mini-series is based on the novel & interviews of the easy company; a company that was posted on the European front during the time of world war II.

Things To Do During Self- Quarantine

It is not often that we are faced with something as massive as this, a point when everyone in the world is worried about one thing only that is stopping the flow of this new virus. Covid 19 is taking a horrendous turn & the hour demands to stop this pandemic. As of now, the best solution everyone came up with is self-isolation. Self-isolation is defined as a practice to keep your self at a safer distance from another human being. People are practicing this by staying at home & avoiding non-essential traveling. However, considering we are so much connected with the world through social media, distancing oneself from the most lured thing in the world is pretty much impossible. The news like an increase in the number of divorces in China due to home quarantine is surfacing all over the world. Is it that tough to stay indoors & spend some time with our selves? This made me write this article. I feel these things will help you a lot in self-isolation.


Books:

Books are the best friend of humankind, which is rightly so. Books have the ability to transport you to some other plane & it also encourages you to think differently. All the top people in the world have vouched for this. As per the data, the richest persons in the world are the most educated ones.

This was possible only in school & college but now is the time to restart what was left. While, at home with access to unlimited content & free classes, this could be the trigger point to start again & practice it again. So, pick up an old instrument & start practicing. This will not only calm your mind but will also sharpen it.

Online Courses:

In the place like India where the competition is cut-throat in the literal sense, this forces you to upgrade your skills with the current practices. With online courses growing continuously, this could be the perfect time to learn a few new skills or upgrade the existing ones. Coursera is one of the biggest platforms to learn new things from the experts. Not so-called experts but the professor who teaches in ivy league colleges. So, a good time to brush up some of your skills.

Yoga:

Yoga not new to the world. This art is highly popular among all the age groups. There is an unlimited health benefit to Yoga & slowly but surely this is rising among every age group. Rishikesh in India is known as Yoga Capital of World. However, traveling all the far to Rishikesh is not possible at this time. But, the benefits of the same can still be availed by sitting at home. There are many channels on youtube that teach you yoga at home. Not just youtube, an app like cultfit will also help you to be fit while staying at home.

Hobbies:

All the above points are for the people who love to do those things. Not necessarily every one of us is having a hobby. A hobby is not something that every one of us develops. But, it should be developed. It will keep you active & happy & also provide a much important purpose in life. It is time to introspect yourself & find those hidden interests which once made you smile, an activity that you wanted to pursue against all the odds of success. It is often said there no best time than now, & precisely this is the time to form some new hobbies for your older self.

Best Books I Read In 2019

I have read 24 books in the year 2019 & I believe these books are the best books of 2019, out of all the books I have read. You can check my complete list here. Book reading is an essential part of today’s life. So, read often & read effectively to win in life. So, without wasting any more time, lets dive into the list.


Life’s Amazing Secrets

Having trouble in your life. This philosophical book about life is amazing & will clear your life concepts. The book is written by a guru Gopal Gaur Das. His videos are popular on youtube & most of his views can be learned from there only. However, this book is written fantastically & will clear your mind. So, I would recommend buying this book, just to have access to it all the time. There are many gems in this book that will help you to maneuver your life during tough times.


Tuesday’s With Morrie:

Another book that talks about life. This is a book about a dying man & his student, who comes together for the one last time to record his thoughts. The student asks about the questions related to various topics, like life, love, relationships, money, religion, etc. These topics touch everyone in some way or the other. A very short book that can be completed in a day. But, it contains lots of great ideas & some new aspects of the daily situation.


Money Master The Game:

How to live a life is one aspect of life & how to make money is a completely different one. This book by Tony Robbins is an eye-opener about money. The money is hard to earn, but it is doable & if one follows certain steps & stick to the rules, they can make it big. This book will teach you about the game that is not taught in schools or colleges but is the most important aspect of one’s life. With money, life becomes smooth & fulfilling. So, reading this book becomes a must, as if you don’t know the rules you can’t beat it.


Principle:

Principle is a book by a hedge fund manager & how he lived his life. After creating a successful company, he wanted to continue it. But, how could he ensure, same productivity & same problem-solving process? So, with all his experience & support of his team, he wrote down a list of principles that should be followed by the company in the future. This list was highly appreciated by people not in the company but by outsiders as well. This encouraged him to publish the book on the same topic & this is how principle came into the picture. A great book to read that will help you to figure out ways to deal with difficult problems.


Educated:

It is tough to come from a family, where a father feels getting an education is against the norms of Christianity. But, 3 people from that family self-taught themselves to become Ph.D. holders. How this becomes possible? Read about their story in this book & in particular about a girl who had written this book. After completing the book, you will be shaken by the journey she took. A great read & an inspiring story about a person with a strong will. A must-read book.




Apart from these, there are many more books which are worth mentioning these are Bad Blood ( a story of a startup that tried to fake it till make it; a page-turner), Animal Farm (a sarcastic take on politics which is relevant in today’s scenario as well), HBR 10 Must-Read on Analytics, AI & More (a great book on how technology will shape your world in coming future). You can check all the list of the books I read in 2019 here.



Traveling for more than just a relaxing vacation

There is a reason certain places are well-know and travelled for all the stereotypes surrounding them. Paris is the city of love and, even though plenty of tourists who went there kept being adamant about how there are plenty of better cities and towns to visit in France, people still travel to see the Eiffel Tower and experience the atmosphere. When you think of London that way, the Big Ben, red double-deckers, and the London Eye (or the Millennium Wheel) immediately pop to your mind. China is all about that Great Wall, Germany is for beer and sausages and Africa is synonymous with safari. Of course, all of those are great exaggerations and, to some, maybe even insulting stereotypes yet we can’t help but think that way. It’s like when you decide to play any of many interesting sex games – you already know what to expect. However, nothing is set in stone and things are always far more complicated than that. In other words, every tourist place and location offers much more variety than just their most recognizable landmarks and features. With that being said, if you’re looking for a region to travel on planet Earth that offers pure fun and enjoyment in every shape and form there is, then you can’t go wrong with Thailand and surrounding countries.


First things first, you can expect all the “usual” stuff when it comes to a country like this. Numerous sunny beaches with hot and playful girls in skimpy bikinis, spicy and exotic food that will stimulate your senses in ways you’ve never before thought possible, nightlife with different kinds of bars, clubs, parlors, etc. Thailand, Taiwan, or the Philippines might not be world-wide know for this but plenty of young people from all over the world trvel to these places to discover themselves. That means plenty of hot, young chicks and guys from the USA and countries all over Europe getting together for one simple quest which is to enjoy life to the fullest. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Hot sun, sea, booze, night clubs… how is it different from any other beach in the world? Well, until you’ve actually experienced it, words can’t come close describing the adventure that awaits you and, well, you can get much more of the adult pleasure if you catch my drift. To put it simply, New York has The Statue of Liberty, and Thailand has its nightlife and adult pleasures. They offer so much freedom and entertainment to those energetic enough and willing to partake that you’ll quickly forget those famous all over the rest of the world. Even the most persistent minds will go blank once all those nude Snapchat pics of local chicks they’ve met start popping in their phones.


Apart from everyone everywhere being much more open, certain places make a business out of providing various degrees of adult pleasure. There are go go bars where you can sit down and have a drink while watching breathtaking babes dancing on the stage. Some bars have chicks in bikinis, while others have them completely naked for your viewing pleasure. Of course, the fun doesn’t stop there because, if you’re lucky enough and have money to spend, you can end up hiring a babe to go down and dirty with you. You can even bargain for a better price and if that just screams fun. Another important thing to note is that all of the girls out there are doing this willingly because some prefer making money that way and others simply want to have fun. If some chick really likes you, you might even end up getting some for free because, why not?


Bangkok Travel Guide Mark My Adventure
In addition to dancing bars, there are already mentioned night clubs. What’s important to keep in mind with those places is that they are packed with so many hotties you actually need to pay attention to whether some girls are “working” or just having fun the same way you do. And when I say “fun” I mean something much more in person than playing sex games for android.

Naturally, if you’re looking for every way possible to enjoy Thailand, you would do yourself a favor if you went and had one of those special massages. You know what I’m talking about. Even more explicit than that, there are actually blowjob bars where you can simply go and get one with your drink. And there are always street girls and escorts for those looking for instant pleasure.

Dubai Experience – What to See and Where to Go in Dubai on Your First Visit

Dubai has always been associated with luxury, grandeur and magnificent architecture. Each one of us wants to experience Dubai at least once in our lifetime. Even after researching online and preparing well in advance for the trip, as a first-time visitor are you still confused as to where to go in Dubai? Well, don’t worry! Just read on to know what to see in Dubai on your first trip.


Best Time To Visit Dubai

There are limitless places to visit in Dubai. But Dubai has a warm climate for most months in a year. Everything is air-conditioned – hotels, indoor attractions, and malls. However, there are a lot of outdoor experiences and adventures in Dubai that you can enjoy only when the weather is pleasant.

The best period to travel is between November and April. The weather is pleasant, and all the tourist attractions are open this time of the year. This is the time when the tourist season is at its peak and the hotels and airfares are really high. January and February are the months when the world-famous Dubai Shopping Festival happens. And most of the people take advantage of this season for travel.

If you want to avoid the peak season and also want to travel on a budget, you can look at the months of May, September, and October for travel. This is also the time when many hotels offer a lot of bargains on their rates.

It is better to avoid the months of July and August as it is extremely hot in Dubai and you won’t be able to enjoy the outdoor activities.

Also, Dubai almost goes on a shutdown mode for 30 days, during the holy month of Ramadan. Most of the restaurants, shops, and cafes are closed during the day to facilitate Ramadan fasting timings. You cannot eat, smoke and drink in public as a means of respect to the people who fast. So, it is better to avoid travel during that time as well.

This six-night seven days romantic vacation in Dubai was an unforgettable one of my life. Flights, sightseeing, visa fee, taxes, meals, entry tickets were included in the tour package. The formalities of our vacation in Dubai were finally completed after a lot of planning, and coordination.

Then we returned to our hotel at night.

On day three we visited the tallest building in the world. Had a great time at Burj Khalifa. We were in a fantastic elevator that took us to the top of this building. The breathtaking view from the “At The Top” observatory was mind-blowing.

2. Evening Desert Safari:

At 7 pm on the second day, we were picked by a 4×4 Land cruiser for our desert safari. The car cutting through red-hot dunes was adventurous. The session of dune bashing tested our strength. We tightly held onto the seats of our air conditioned Land cruiser as it bounced on the hot dunes giving us an adrenaline rush. We enjoyed camel riding too. The quad biking on the treacherous sand was an exhilarating experience. We were dropped off to the desert camp where we enjoyed many traditional performances.

The sunset view at the desert was fantastic. I had never witnessed such a beautiful sunset in my life. Then at the Bedouin camp, we enjoyed a delicious BBQ dinner along with drinks and live dance performance.

From there one can have the falcon eye view of the city. It looked to me that this city was built so that one can have this fantastic view from the observatory deck.

We also visited the famous Gold Souk and Meena Bazaar. The marvelously decorated markets kept alive the old Dubai traditions even in this modern wave of transformation.

The falcon eye view from the world’s tallest building was on bucket list, and to check that is unforgettable. The only issue we had to face regarding this trip was that the visa and other documents were sent a bit late to us. We would have preferred to receive all these documents a few days in advance. All other things were excellent.
