Mrityunjay, another name for Shiva is for attaining patience and power to regain positivity by shedding all negatives of life and soul.

So head to the hills and breathe in some freshness into that exhausted body!

So let me show you my three best friends for winter months.
Last Sunday was all about self-pampering. Great food, sparkling city-lights marking the onset of festivals, fragrance-laden autumn air, a soul-stirring SPA therapy and some comfort food kept us real busy.
