House Renovation to make it look like a Hotel

Tired of your routine life and looking for some better place to live in…No need to search for a hotel. You can convert your own house into a hotel with these simple tricks.

Hectic schedules in the office, mental pressure, social stigma, irritating relatives, traffic jams, polluted roads….an array of such problems make us feel stressed out after the weekdays and all we want for weekends is a relaxed lifestyle. The kind of life where we can feel as privileged and fortunate as if we are living in some luxury hotel with classy interiors, cozy bed, filmy living room, ultra modular kitchen, glamorous bathroom and a lot more. Dreaming about all these things in a house for a relaxed lifestyle is not a sin but actually getting it within a budget is a big task, as it is quite impossible for a common man to visit a 5-star hotel every weekend to getaway from the chaos of routine life. If you’re also looking for some economical options to cheat on the mainstream wall colors or the furniture in your house, then here are some sure shot tricks which can convert your house into a deluxe hotel where you can spend your weekends like a king.

Glorified Living Room — Relax in Style!

Generally, people tend to become so lost in choosing a right set of couch and coffee table for their living room, that they often forget the easiest and efficient element to enhance the living room i.e, Lightning. Lights can play a major role in glorifying the beauty of the living room along with intensifying your cheerful mood. The majority of your time is spent in the living room where you enjoy with your friends, arrange a get-together, chill and watch movies on TV, read books, fight with your siblings etc. For this matter, lightning should be in a manner that it can solve the dual purpose of boosting the looks of the living room and light up the space. Apart from this, an uncluttered living room gives a sense of more space even if it is somewhat small.

Contemporary Bedroom — Sweet Dreams!

Your bedroom is the place you go to relax and escape everyday life. When designed correctly, bedrooms are comfy sanctuaries full of cozy bedding and peaceful decor that make you feel both happy and calm. A king or queen size double bed defines the bedroom covered with a nice dress of bed-sheet matching with the wall colors or in contrast to the color of the room according to the taste of the owner. It is generally recommended to paint the walls of the bedroom with light and neutral colors for the pacifying look. Also, a family picture or a nice painting in the front wall of your bed can deepen the visual aspect of your bedroom and will make you feel close to your family all the time.

Urban Kitchen- Bon Appetite!

Kitchens are an integral part of every house and should me maintained, managed, decorated and taken care as one of the most important parts of your house, be it an apartment, villa or an independent house. An organized kitchen not only displays the kind of person you are, but it is also an element to bring prosperity to your house. The minimalist modular kitchen is the key idea to an attractive kitchen where you can assemble all your cooking utensils in such a way that every utensil becomes a decorative item, the manner it is placed. Open Kitchens are recently in trend and a good idea to sync your cooking with the glimpse of all other activities going around you in your house. Apart from that, cleaning the kitchen everyday after every cooking session should be prioritized so that it looks vibrant all the time.

Sassy Bathroom — Glossy You!

A groovy bathroom can serve 80 percent of your mindset to spend a weekend in some luxury hotel. The sanitary fixtures in your bathroom are very important to feel like a celebrity while using it. If your home sweet home cannot afford costly Jacuzzi or a fancy shower unit, make sure to set up at least a nice bath tub that can fit in your budget. Apart from these sassy fittings, the other elements that play an important role in defining the beauty of your bathroom is a good transparent shower curtain, the color of the tiles in your bathroom, the placement of the large mirror and the design of the wash basin . These small things present a big impact on the way your bathroom looks and feels. Also, it is highly essential to keep the bathroom tiles neat, clean and glossy all the time for a resort or a hotel like a feel.

Furniture Fixtures: Stylishly Furnished!

Apart from everything above, the major role played in transforming your house into a masterpiece cloning its glory with a luxurious hotel is “furniture”. These wooden arrangements are not just the elements to sit and relax but are the major contributor in the appearance of any house. Furniture should be selected very carefully keeping in mind the space constraints, the wall colors and most importantly the purpose. It is always better to opt for a neutral color while buying a furniture so that at any point in time, if you decide to change your wall colors, it can go fine along with it.

Kind Words From Legends

Being a girl in India brings with it a unique set of problems. The legend, Amitabh Bachchan recently wrote a beautiful letter to his granddaughters, Navya Naveli Nanda and Aradhya and is quite trending over social media with this act. Even Mark Zuckerberg dedicated a beautiful piece of writing some time back to his daughter. Here’re the kind words of these legends which will definitely make you think where our society is leading us to, may it be in India or outside.

Amitabh Bachhan Wrote :

“You both carry a very valuable legacy on your tender shoulders — Aaradhya, the legacy of your pardadaji, Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan…and Navya, the legacy of your pardadaji , Shri H P Nanda….
Both your pardadaji ‘ s gave your present surnames celebrated fame, dignity and recognition!
Both of you may be a Nanda or a Bachchan, but you are also girls…women !
And because you are women people will force their thinking, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don’t live in the shadows of people’s judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom. Don’t let anyone make you believe that the length of your skirt is a measure of your character. Don’t let anyone’s opinion of who you should be friends with, dictate who you will be friends with. Don’t get married for any other reason other than you want to get married. People will talk. They shall say some terrible things. But that doesn’t mean you have to listen to everyone. Never ever worry about — log kya kahenge.
At the end of the day, you are the only one who will face the consequences of your actions, so don’t let other people make your decisions for you.
Navya — the privilege your name, your surname offers you, will not protect you from the difficulties you will face because you’re a woman.
Aaradhya — by the time you see and understand this, I may well not be around. But I think what I am saying today shall still be relevant. This may be a difficult, difficult world to be a woman. But I believe that it is women like you that will change that. It may not be easy, setting your own boundaries, making your own choices, rising above people ‘s judgement. But YOU!…you can set an example for women everywhere.
Do this and you would have done more than I have ever done, and it will be my honor to be known not as Amitabh Bachchan, but as your grandfather!!”
With all my love
Your ….Dadaji ….your Nana

Mark Zuckerberg Wrote:

Dear Max,
Your mother and I don’t yet have the words to describe the hope you give us for the future. Your new life is full of promise, and we hope you will be happy and healthy so you can explore it fully. You’ve already given us a reason to reflect on the world we hope you live in.
Like all parents, we want you to grow up in a world better than ours today. While headlines often focus on what’s wrong, in many ways the world is getting better. Health is improving. Poverty is shrinking. Knowledge is growing. People are connecting. Technological progress in every field means your life should be dramatically better than ours today.
We will do our part to make this happen, not only because we love you, but also because we have a moral responsibility to all children in the next generation. We believe all lives have equal value, and that includes the many more people who will live in future generations than live today. Our society has an obligation to invest now to improve the lives of all those coming into this world, not just those already here.
But right now, we don’t always collectively direct our resources at the biggest opportunities and problems your generation will face.
Consider disease. Today we spend about 50 times more as a society treating people who are sick than we invest in research so you won’t get sick in the first place.
Medicine has only been a real science for less than 100 years, and we’ve already seen complete cures for some diseases and good progress for others. As technology accelerates, we have a real shot at preventing, curing or managing all or most of the rest in the next 100 years.
Today, most people die from five things — heart disease, cancer, stroke, neurodegenerative and infectious diseases — and we can make faster progress on these and other problems.
Once we recognize that your generation and your children’s generation may not have to suffer from disease, we collectively have a responsibility to tilt our investments a bit more towards the future to make this reality. Your mother and I want to do our part.
Curing disease will take time. Over short periods of five or ten years, it may not seem like we’re making much of a difference. But over the long term, seeds planted now will grow, and one day, you or your children will see what we can only imagine: a world without suffering from disease.
There are so many opportunities just like this. If society focuses more of its energy on these great challenges, we will leave your generation a much better world.
Our hopes for your generation focus on two ideas: advancing human potential and promoting equality.
Advancing human potential is about pushing the boundaries on how great a human life can be.
Can you learn and experience 100 times more than we do today?
Can our generation cure disease so you live much longer and healthier lives?
Can we connect the world so you have access to every idea, person and opportunity?
Can we harness more clean energy so you can invent things we can’t conceive of today while protecting the environment?
Can we cultivate entrepreneurship so you can build any business and solve any challenge to grow peace and prosperity?
Promoting equality is about making sure everyone has access to these opportunities — regardless of the nation, families or circumstances they are born into. Our society must do this not only for justice or charity, but for the greatness of human progress. Today we are robbed of the potential so many have to offer. The only way to achieve our full potential is to channel the talents, ideas and contributions of every person in the world.
Can our generation eliminate poverty and hunger?
Can we provide everyone with basic healthcare?
Can we build inclusive and welcoming communities?
Can we nurture peaceful and understanding relationships between people of all nations?
Can we truly empower everyone — women, children, underrepresented minorities, immigrants and the unconnected?
If our generation makes the right investments, the answer to each of these questions can be yes — and hopefully within your lifetime.
This mission — advancing human potential and promoting equality — will require a new approach for all working towards these goals.
We must make long term investments over 25, 50 or even 100 years. The greatest challenges require very long time horizons and cannot be solved by short term thinking.
We must engage directly with the people we serve. We can’t empower people if we don’t understand the needs and desires of their communities.
We must build technology to make change. Many institutions invest money in these challenges, but most progress comes from productivity gains through innovation. We must participate in policy and advocacy to shape debates. Many institutions are unwilling to do this, but progress must be supported by movements to be sustainable.
We must back the strongest and most independent leaders in each field. Partnering with experts is more effective for the mission than trying to lead efforts ourselves. We must take risks today to learn lessons for tomorrow. We’re early in our learning and many things we try won’t work, but we’ll listen and learn and keep improving.
Our experience with personalized learning, internet access, and community education and health has shaped our philosophy.
Our generation grew up in classrooms where we all learned the same things at the same pace regardless of our interests or needs.
Your generation will set goals for what you want to become — like an engineer, health worker, writer or community leader. You’ll have technology that understands how you learn best and where you need to focus. You’ll advance quickly in subjects that interest you most, and get as much help as you need in your most challenging areas. You’ll explore topics that aren’t even offered in schools today. Your teachers will also have better tools and data to help you achieve your goals.
Even better, students around the world will be able to use personalized learning tools over the internet, even if they don’t live near good schools. Of course, it will take more than technology to give everyone a fair start in life, but personalized learning can be one scalable way to give all children a better education and more equal opportunity. We’re starting to build this technology now, and the results are already promising. Not only do students perform better on tests, but they gain the skills and confidence to learn anything they want. And this journey is just beginning. The technology and teaching will rapidly improve every year you’re in school.
Your mother and I have both taught students and we’ve seen what it takes to make this work. It will take working with the strongest leaders in education to help schools around the world adopt personalized learning. It will take engaging with communities, which is why we’re starting in our San Francisco Bay Area community. It will take building new technology and trying new ideas. And it will take making mistakes and learning many lessons before achieving these goals.
But once we understand the world we can create for your generation, we have a responsibility as a society to focus our investments on the future to make this reality.
Together, we can do this. And when we do, personalized learning will not only help students in good schools, it will help provide more equal opportunity to anyone with an internet connection.
Many of the greatest opportunities for your generation will come from giving everyone access to the internet.
People often think of the internet as just for entertainment or communication. But for the majority of people in the world, the internet can be a lifeline.
It provides education if you don’t live near a good school. It provides health information on how to avoid diseases or raise healthy children if you don’t live near a doctor. It provides financial services if you don’t live near a bank. It provides access to jobs and opportunities if you don’t live in a good economy.
The internet is so important that for every 10 people who gain internet access, about one person is lifted out of poverty and about one new job is created.
Yet still more than half of the world’s population — more than 4 billion people — don’t have access to the internet.
If our generation connects them, we can lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. We can also help hundreds of millions of children get an education and save millions of lives by helping people avoid disease.
This is another long term effort that can be advanced by technology and partnership. It will take inventing new technology to make the internet more affordable and bring access to unconnected areas. It will take partnering with governments, non-profits and companies. It will take engaging with communities to understand what they need. Good people will have different views on the best path forward, and we will try many efforts before we succeed.
But together we can succeed and create a more equal world.
Technology can’t solve problems by itself. Building a better world starts with building strong and healthy communities.
Children have the best opportunities when they can learn. And they learn best when they’re healthy.
Health starts early — with loving family, good nutrition and a safe, stable environment.
Children who face traumatic experiences early in life often develop less healthy minds and bodies. Studies show physical changes in brain development leading to lower cognitive ability.
Your mother is a doctor and educator, and she has seen this firsthand.
If you have an unhealthy childhood, it’s difficult to reach your full potential. If you have to wonder whether you’ll have food or rent, or worry about abuse or crime, then it’s difficult to reach your full potential.
If you fear you’ll go to prison rather than college because of the color of your skin, or that your family will be deported because of your legal status, or that you may be a victim of violence because of your religion, sexual orientation or gender identity, then it’s difficult to reach your full potential.
We need institutions that understand these issues are all connected. That’s the philosophy of the new type of school your mother is building.
By partnering with schools, health centers, parent groups and local governments, and by ensuring all children are well fed and cared for starting young, we can start to treat these inequities as connected. Only then can we collectively start to give everyone an equal opportunity.
It will take many years to fully develop this model. But it’s another example of how advancing human potential and promoting equality are tightly linked. If we want either, we must first build inclusive and healthy communities.
For your generation to live in a better world, there is so much more our generation can do.
Today your mother and I are committing to spending our lives doing our small part to help solve these challenges. I will continue to serve as Facebook’s CEO for many, many years to come, but these issues are too important to wait until you or we are older to begin this work. By starting at a young age, we hope to see compounding benefits throughout our lives.
As you begin the next generation of the Chan Zuckerberg family, we also begin the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation. Our initial areas of focus will be personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities.
We will give 99% of our Facebook shares — currently about $45 billion — during our lives to advance this mission. We know this is a small contribution compared to all the resources and talents of those already working on these issues. But we want to do what we can, working alongside many others.
We’ll share more details in the coming months once we settle into our new family rhythm and return from our maternity and paternity leaves. We understand you’ll have many questions about why and how we’re doing this.
As we become parents and enter this next chapter of our lives, we want to share our deep appreciation for everyone who makes this possible.
We can do this work only because we have a strong global community behind us. Building Facebook has created resources to improve the world for the next generation. Every member of the Facebook community is playing a part in this work. We can make progress towards these opportunities only by standing on the shoulders of experts — our mentors, partners and many incredible people whose contributions built these fields.
And we can only focus on serving this community and this mission because we are surrounded by loving family, supportive friends and amazing colleagues. We hope you will have such deep and inspiring relationships in your life too.
Max, we love you and feel a great responsibility to leave the world a better place for you and all children. We wish you a life filled with the same love, hope and joy you give us. We can’t wait to see what you bring to this world.

A Ray of Hope

When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone.
When I was sure of losing, I won.
When I needed people the most, they left me.
When I learned to dry my tears, I found a shoulder to cry on.
And when I mastered the art of hating, somebody started loving me.
A ray of hope always awaits you after the dark clouds.
