Ever felt anxious or sweaty while thinking about your finances? Well, hope it's not 'Money Anxiety' that you are dealing with. To understand better, take a look at this visual guide and save yourself before it is too late!
An introduction to money anxiety.
You start avoiding money conversations.
You start overspending.
You start over-analyzing.
You become the money hoarder.
You feel the pressure to compete financially with your peers.
How to cope with money anxiety?
Indians and their obsession with drinking chai the 'noisy' way
Indians (especially mothers) and their obsession with their favourite Tupperware products is at another level.
Irrespective of where they are, Indians are obsessed over burping loudly after having a wholesome meal.
Our favourite passtime has to be gossiping about others.
Be it any wall in the country, you will always find that long 'paan ki peek' because we Indians can't do without spitting.
The second thing which Indians love (the first being cricket) is using cuss words.
You are not an Indian if you cannot bargain with the shopkeeper bhaiya. Bargaining runs in our blood since ages.
The most talked about topic is marriage. We obsess over discussing others' married life.
"Arey lekin log kya kahenge?" is a line we all must have heard from somebody at least once in our life. 
Yes, we’re introverts
We like spending time in doing what we love, and not what others expect us to do.
We process a thousand things in our mind before talking to anyone.
We might not be expressive in real, but we can write long paragraphs about how we feel.
You will mostly find us with a straight face but we too deal with a 1000 emotions inside.
We have a master’s degree in overthinking.
Sometimes (mostly) we avoid talking to anybody because it just takes a lot of effort.
When we open ourselves up, we feel that we’ve taken off our clothes.
An introvert’s style guide.
You would probably find us enjoying our own company (and ‘NO’ we don’t feel sad or lonely)
Yes, we’re introverts and we are happy in the little bubbles that we create for ourselves.
Looking at the aftermath of Diwali celebrations through cinema

Another year, another Diwali, and yet another prolonged period of dealing with the aftermath of the firecracker-filled festival. The Air Quality Index (AQI) has dropped to concerningly low levels across the country, but the worst-affected like every year is the Delhi-NCR region.

Yes, kids are always cute but we all must be familiar with their mischiefs and uninterrupted whining throughout the day. This visual story takes you through different instances which prove that kids can be little monsters too!
They start fighting for no reason (or stupid reasons!)
Kids are cute until they start watching their favourite show on full volume.
They scratch your face, throw away your glasses or pee on your favourite shirt.

They start picking their nose (and then lick it too!)
They try out all your makeup before you do.
They get super inquisitive.
Kids are cute until they annoy you by asking stupid questions.
They start whining in front of public.
