Romance on the onset of winters

Winter has their own charm. After the scorching heat of summers when the weather starts comforting us, our heart and mood are actually pleased. A beautiful winter season undeniable speak up the tales of thousands of love stories popping out right at its beginning. You just fill and get mugged up with the saga of beautiful weather and see the beginning of romance in everything you surround.

Romance can never be confined to merely a lover; however, its significance is truly meaningful when you have your partner around you. You may find romance in books, or maybe in a cup of coffee or might be in the beauty of hills, rivulet or greenery around you. Even watching the snow-fall out of the window, with all peace around can also give you an immense pleasure from inside. Indeed, romance has its own unique versions and definitions, and your version can never be taken back from you.

One can feel the best romance even in writing- your own saga, your own wool of thoughts, especially when they are paired with the surrounding you are in. No doubt, life poses to us a number of reasons to remain tense but off-course, it is balanced in giving you reasons to celebrate, joy, spread love, hugs and many more.

It is rich still easy. You just get up with a smile and thank for all what you have. Take time out with your partner in the love of air, somewhere in the hills and live the moments of passion and romance. Because life is that, what you make it. Spend time in hills, walk with the footprints of nature and slowly observe how these birds are humming, air is blowing, the butterfly is surrounding you. Fell for it, feel the fragrance and fly beyond time.

 

 

 

A bike ride to Morni Hills

I just love bikes and off-course, biking is one of my favorite hobbies. I have experienced it differently and at different locations, a number of times. For the last weekend, I planned to ride to Morni Hills along with my wife and explore the location.

Morni hill is a beautiful destination located nearly 40 km from the district Panchkula. I had seen this place earlier too but this riding experience was quite amazing. We started from the plain areas of Panchkula along with our beg-pack. We both were in our comfortable dressing, means we were already prepared to live the adventure of tracking and enjoying the less-explored areas of hills.

My wife was very much fascinated with the glimpse of wildlife, she saw while entering into the forest reserve area for Morni Hills. The weather was extremely calm and clear with the cool breeze chilling us. It was a soul smoothening ride, usually, I love to ride quite fast but here I was not at all willing to gear up for high speed because both of us were hardly willing to miss even a single moment of the day.

It was a fun ride on the spiral route and actually when roads are in their best shape, you are actually overwhelmed with joy and satisfaction. We took a halt under an old, giant size banyan tree at the roadside. There, we relaxed for a while and watch the beautiful creations of nature like some wildflowers, wild creeper closely. While we were taking some pics to save them as memories- red jungle fowls appeared in a group, it was amazing to see them this way.

Afterward, we started again covering all the patches of flora and fauna. In city life, as a whole everybody is so merged that they forget that nature has actually gifted us many beautiful things and that too at no cost. We again took a few halts at some eye-catching turns and spots and saw how nice it is to look around.

I am very foodie and carry a particular taste for food. So, in order to add flavors to our picnic we stopped at Bushman Hill Resort where we spend nearly 2 hours- we were happy to find that the food, its quality, and their service was altogether unmatchable. They were a number of riders like us who are like the regular visitor to the Morni Hills, took a special halt at Bushman Resort to relax and rejuvenate.

We reached the lake of Tikkar Tal finally, which has a very excellent picturesque view and undeniably alluring to the eyes and soul. We find a small waterfall also flowing through the hills nearby. Climbing the rocks to have a closer view of that waterfall was worth doing. We enjoyed and made the most of it.

For both of us, the experience to all the places and locations was worth revising. I am sharing these endless memories along with the untold wealth of soul-satisfying experiences in the lap of nature for other travelers like us- to rejoice and cherish the beauty of nature.

Content Strategy for A Business Conference

 

Falling in love with the world wide web is much higher for a marketing strategist as by any other. Be it a webinar, video conferencing, virtual discussions, slacks, social media discussions or hangout chat, the availability is important. Now, when we are just a step away from the screen, we get time to interact with – clients, customers, stakeholders; in-person. No virtual interaction can replace this as it not only enhances trust and bonding but helps us build our network, learn from others and generate solutions for some of our routine problems. So, is the importance of a business conference.

While planning to execute a purposive business conference, we look around for the details of a conference room, comfortable sitting arrangement, impressive outlook of the discussion room, adequate room temperature, humidity, water, snacks or maybe tea or coffee arrangements on time. We do prepare the list of speakers, guests, and other attendees at the conference and then plan to serve them in our best possible way. The next is the schedule of the conference- who will sit where and when?

The hoardings, flex, standees, backdrops, pamphlets, welcome emails and promotional banners are the next important things that you will have to decide and that too well-in-advance. Moreover, you will have to make sure that all of them must go in line with the intent/idea of the conference and must exhibit the true character of the event in themselves. Here, comes the issue of planning the content and content strategy for your event. You must have to sit down, think, pen down, write, edit and after finalizing publish the content later on, so that your objective to rightly engage your audience in required direction can be fulfilled.

For that, you will have to follow your content strategy step by step and decide what to do first. In first go, you might end up a little annoyed by not finding the proper selection of words and phrases which are unique in character and spirit. The best way is that you just sketch the whole content strategy first and then start working on the drafting of the same. This process requires a lot of free time to think till the time you strike with the best form of content/ words matching your business goals. All you need to revisit again and again is- “what content can add value to the event and create an impression on the audience without missing the hidden intent of the conference”.

A content strategist can be a ‘thinker’ to handle the challenging task to perform unplanned and unstructured nature of work. The person will have to dive-in completely into the essence of the industry concerned, real market scenario, ongoing trends and future prospects to come out with the flying colours. Then only they can contextualize their text to generate leads and hence, sell more tickets. They may need to question their own work again and again and then challenge their own words themselves to reach up to the adequate level and in fact, that level will leverageable- right for their business unit through the business conference.
