Five small changes can secure your family’s future

 By Somali K Chakrabarti Festive times are full of fun and frolic. These are the times when we cherish togetherness with our family, the most, and if we happen to be away from our family, we miss them the most. Just like festive celebrations, life too is incomplete without our family. From time to time, we realize that we must do everything in our capacity to secure our family’s future. Yet, we often tend to procrastinate in buying the insurance. If we start early, with a saving as little as Rs 535 / month (18/ day), we can secure our family’s future with an Rs 1 crore life insurance cover. Further, small lifestyle changes can help us to easily save to secure the future of our loved ones.

Five things you can give up to secure your family’s future

Festive times are the times when we cherish togetherness with our family, the most. If we happen to be away from our family during these times, we miss them the most. Just like festive celebrations, life too is incomplete without our family. From time to time, we realize that we must do everything in our capacity to keep our family happy and to secure their future. We plan for our children’s education, their career, we plan for our vacations, yet sometimes, we miss out on planning for a constant source of income for our immediate family in our absence. We know that we need to be prepared for such an eventuality, but we often tend to underplay its importance till something drastic happens that shakes us up. Then, we go for life insurance! The reasons to procrastinate are many – sometimes, we are not sure which insurance plan would suit us the best, at others we are not sure if we can afford to pay the premium for the policy or how much money do we need to set aside each month for it. But, believe me, it is not at all difficult. You can buy insurance online. Using the online insurance calculator, you can calculate the insurance…

Omkar Meridia – Residential apartments near BKC, Mumbai

In the city of Mumbai, living close to the workplace is a dream cherished by many, particularly by those who spend a considerable portion of their time commuting to work. It is not uncommon for people to spend 2 – 3 hours each day traveling between work and home, with the travel time increasing substantially during the rainy season. However, due to the mercurial rise in property prices in Mumbai each year, affordability of residential property near the workplace always remains an issue. In such a scenario, if people can  ‘Walk to work‘, they will not only cut down the long commute and evade agonizing traffic jams, but also gain sufficient time to pursue their interests. Last week, I had received an invite from Omkar Realtors and Developers to attend an event that included a presentation by the Chief Marketing Officer on Omkar Meridia, a property at BKC Crossing. The event conducted at the property site itself, also included a visit to the sample flat. I registered for the event and reached the venue on the given hour.    The discussion with the CMO centered not only around the property but also around Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), which is an important business hub in the Mumbai suburbs, and the office destination for lakhs of people.  Though there are many…

Celebrating Friendships with Yaaron Ki Baraat

 By Somali K Chakrabarti The story goes back to the late seventies and eighties when gizmos and gadgets were not yet a part and parcel of our lives. That was the time when landline phones were a rarity, mobiles and laptops were unheard of, we would wait for a whole week to watch a movie on the Black and White TV, and  we met people only in person, not virtually. Friendship meant strolling around, playing on the ground, flying kites on the terrace, exchanging books and chatting with friends on topics that would never end. Every summer, I went to Lucknow with my grandma, to visit my uncles and aunts and spend my vacations with my cousins. I don’t remember how it started, but it had become a yearly routine for a couple of years. I always looked forward to those annual trips for a number of reasons which included living for two months with a bunch of cousins, reading a whole lot of story books, gorging on ice creams, savouring papdi chaat, batasa (paanipuri/ golgappe), watching movies, gushing over our favourite stars, and sometimes even squabbling over them. Many anecdotes of those days are still vivid in my memory…
