I have been working in the software technology services space for over 15 years. In my professional life I help in implementing quality standards like ISO, CMMi & Six Sigma to make developers and testers jobs easier & process oriented. Through this blog I am sharing similar techniques coupled with age old wisdom from my mom and grand mom to make our living healthier and medicine free. To work in any new field, it helps if you read and train too, and I did the same.

It’s not very often we come across someone so inspiring that it makes us take a pause, look back at our own lives and retrospect if we would ever reach that level of achievement we aspire to. I was so fortunate to come across one such person recently, Mrs. Latika Chakrabarty. So, what is it about her that is so inspiring?

So, I also wanted to make sure that we continue them even with the kids. And I realized, after a couple of trips, that the key to a good enjoyable one is “being prepared”.   So here is a checklist to make sure you (and your car) is prepared…

The joy of parenthood is exceptional, and with that joy comes the responsibility of wanting to be the best parents. As first-time parents, there are so many different forms of advice that come to you, be it from your own parents and grand-parents, neighbors, friends, acquaintances- solicited and not so welcome ones😊 Raising kids and making sure of their physical as well as cognitive development starts as early as the time when you have conceived.

All babies need a lot of attention and care in the early years. These are the years that provide the building blocks for the overall development. But when it comes to pre-term babies, they need some extra special attention and care. What is a preterm baby?
