Teething in infants

Teething is the term used for baby's strong desire to bite on something real hard. This might start as early as 2-3 months. If this desire isn't fulfilled then the baby might become very fussy. Try giving some teethers. When you buy these make sure it rightly satisfies your child's biting needs. It should be such that the baby can easily hold it in its hands and should be able to bite it. We had given our son some of these. Most of them were either too large or too small for him to bite. Some also suggest giving baby carrots. But this did not work well for us. Smooth curved spoons was a favourite teether for our son. Try this, but be careful so that the baby does not hurt himself with it.Another best solution for teething is to play with your kid so that he forgets about his teething. Many of them go for some homeopathy medicines for teething. But my advise would be to first try some of the above methods and if nothing is working only then consult your PD.

Lyrics for Putani Neeli Hakki

Oooo putani neeli hakki
Haadu haadu haadu... haadu
Chandra idane banalli beladingalu ee kaanalli
Barale beku nee illi
Haaraduva maathina malli

Aleyaaduthide holadalli tere tooguthide koladalli
Barale beku nee illi
Haaraduva maathina malli

Bellakkigalive saradalli giligalu hachane maradalli
Barale beku nee illi
Haaraduva maathina malli

Lyrics for JojoLaali

Jojolaali na haduve chinna ninna muddaduve
Hoovanta kanasu ta moodi barali
naguva aluva kannalli indu
Jojolaali na haduve chinna ninna muddaduve

Nidira devi ba mellage
Taare inda ee bhoomige
Savira rangina malebillina
Maaleya dharisi baa illige
Chinnada terali volavinda bandu
Taare muthu kandange indu

Chippi madila muthantheye
Deepada jyoti holevanteye
Kiranade kanti kulitanteye
Mogalli saurabha iruvanteye
Raatri hagalu haasiralendu
Malagu maguve madilalli indu

Himachal Pradesh

I feel Himachal Pradesh and Kerala must have had a tough competition for the title 'God's own country'. I was completely in love with that state when we visited it in September 2009. Every nook and corner is filled with greenery here. As long as you are there the scenic beauty will leave you in a trance.
No No.. I am not the HP tourism minister. :) Its just that living in a busy city like Bangalore you will be in awe watching such beauty.
