Thirteen Indian states are dealing with acute water scarcity, a phenomenon that has been manifesting itself every summer for the last few years. Several thousands of villages in the country have declared drought and many more are facing taxing circumstances where water is available only once every few weeks. While efforts – albeit delayed – are being taken to supply water to drought hit areas, we are far from fulfilling basic water needs of everybody, or from designing a long term solution.
When women today are as busy as their male counterparts and as much on the move, to expect them to shoulder complete responsibility of the household is, to put it simply, very unfair. There’s no better time than now to take a stand on gender inequality, and that’s exactly why we at BlogAdda in association with Ariel Matic with the new Odd Even Calendar are trying to create a paradigm shift in Indian households with the #LaundryGoesOddEven blogging activity.
To get into the zone of writing a book takes a world of effort. And when you’re in that zone, you hope with all your heart that nothing interrupts your thought process.

With the intention that Holi should be celebrated without a care in the world, BlogAdda and Parachute Advansed brought to you the #KhulKeKheloHoli activity – an attempt to remind you of those childhood days when we couldn’t be bothered about our hair or skin. All that mattered was spreading the colour and love to our hearts’ content! We hope you too took the Parachute Advansed #KhulKeKheloHoli pledge this Holi. And without further ado, here are the winners of the #KhulKeKheloHoli blogging activity.
There are some moments in life that will never be forgotten; times spent with dear ones that are etched in our hearts forever. These memories live on, at times serving as rays of hope and at other times bringing smiles to our faces through the tears. These recollections make us strong, deepen our relationships with those we love and are constant reminders of the fact that the best things in life come free to us. Sharing our greatest memories is what we had in mind when we at BlogAdda in association with HDFC Life brought to you the #MemoriesForLife blogging activity. And now it’s time to announce the winners of the activity.
International Mother Earth Day – Earth Day in short – is commemorated annually on April 22nd, the largest secular holiday in the world. On this day, people in over 192 countries come together for one cause – to appreciate this wonderful planet we live on, and to vow to do our part in saving the Earth. This year’s theme was #Trees4Earth, a campaign initiated by Earth Day Network to encourage the planting of 7.8 billion trees.
