No pain in painting - Berger Express Painting

I had a dream. I wanted to get my house painted and I was happy about it.
There was no tension, no way was I trying to delay it. I was actually looking forward to it.

In my dream, I made a phone call expressing my wish to pep up the walls of my house.
A professional, polite person came, asked me what I wanted to get done. He had things like a laser tool to measure the area... is my dream going the science fiction way, I wonder.
I know laser tool is very much a reality, but imagine it being used in to facilitate the painting of my walls. Have I walked into a very distant future?

I get an estimate. I am still having visions, I guess, because I am assured that the work will be done in the time and budget that I will be told beforehand.

This person returns with a painter. The D-Day is finalised.
The day arrives and my family now firmly believes that I have gone crazy. I have told them that they don't need to move the furniture. They don't have to get old bed sheets (and if there are no old ones, be prepared to make the news ones turn into old) ready to cover what we can.
We have not bought masks to help us breathe.
The kitchen (which is to be painted last) can continue to function normally.
Well, it is my dream, I say defensively. I will choose to imagine the best, even if it is impossible.

When the very informative (and unbelievably true) session of Berger Express started, that is what my first instinct was. Just a dream.
Dreams do come true.

"It is easier to get your tooth pulled than to get your house painted"... quite a gem to introduce the miracle of Berger Express Painting.
There was laughter all around. But the laughter had a masked undertone of 'oh we know, we have been there'.

For whoever has had the experience of getting the house painted the 'traditional' way, know that it is usually an extremely painful experience.

The pain is multifold - emotional, financial, and on health. The stressful environment that takes over the family is something that one can understand only when one has been through it.

The pain can be taken out of painting by Berger Express Painting. Using smart and practical tools, trained painters, and professional planning, painting by Berger Express seems to good to be true, but is not. It is too good, but it true too.

  • Berger Express Painting is 40 percent faster than traditional painting.
  • They use trained painters for efficient and better painting (they have their own training academy for painters).
  • The results are sparkling thanks to no-mess tools.
  • Cutting-edge vacuum suction-enabled sanding machines are used to keep the house dust-free.
  • The tools are certified and ensure a better finish with high efficiency.
  • There is no additional cost compared to traditional painting, though many benefits are offered.
At the end of a very fun meet, the activities of which deserve a blog post of its own, I came back trying to figure out how I can get my house, or maybe just a room, painted.

Absurd, yet so good (Book Review - David S. Atkinson's Not Quite So Stories)

Title: NOT QUITE SO STORIES Author: David S. Atkinson
Publisher: Literary Wanderlus LLC
Pages: 166
Genre: Absurdist Literary Fiction
The stories of David S. Atkinson's Not Quite So Stories are, for want of a better word, weird.
They are not your typical short stories and they are certainly not what I had expected.

So, the 'not quite so stories' are weird, atypical and unexpected. And I enjoyed reading them. Read between the lines and you'd be surprised by their depth.
Read them superficially and they are 'absurd'.

The author's dedication for this book is
"For Shannon, who graciously puts up with my absurdities and loves me anyway.
Also for every third person named Fred."

When I re-read the dedication after having read the book, it held more meaning. Thus my use of the word 'absurd'.

The stories are very well-written.
The humor, the emotions, the terror - it is all subtle.
The paradox is that everything is exaggerated and yet the underlying message is sub…

Blogging, Parenting, Nutrition... lots of fun - Blogger's Meet

#CatchUpOnGrowth - the Indimeet that launched Horlicks Growth+, discussed parenting issues, clarified many nutrition confusions, and as is common with all Indimeets, pampered bloggers and celebrated blogging.

The session started with a discussion among Dr Rajiv Chhabra (HoD of Pediatrics at Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon), Ms Satinder Kaur Walia (a psychologist), and Dr Jyoti Batra (Head Dietician at Batra Hospital). This discussion, moderated by blogger Natasha Badhwar, about nutrition for children and parenting in general was a very informative.

There was much to learn from the session. Here are lists of a few things I brought back with me...

Malnutrition has remained the same over the years, but obesity has increased. Worse still, parents are in denial.
Obesity is not only a health/medical problem. It leads to psychological issues for the child too, such as being bullied, teased, etc.

The many tips I am taking home on nutrition. Most of these are relevant, not just for children, but for ever…

The right and wrong of choices #WriteBravely

"You can choose courage or you can choose comfort. You cannot have both" - Brene Brown
And it is ok to choose comfort. 
This is my first instinct when I read this quote. Not because I don't feel that choosing courage is the wrong choice, but because it is implied that one should choose courage.
Ideally, we would all choose courage and lead perfect lives. 
"Life is unfair" - such a clichè and so very true. As true as the facts that the world is imperfect, the destiny is not in our control, and that life is uncertain. "You get what anybody gets - you get a lifetime" - Neil Gaiman
I think my instinctive reaction of 'it is ok to choose comfort' comes from my being a mother. I have spent years counseling my kids that at times, you choose what is right for you. 
Many a time I feel happier waiting rather than taking any immediate action. And waiting takes a lot of courage.
So, yes make the choice between courage and comfort. Choose courage even.  But decide for…
