Yoga for healthy living : An insightful approach towards healthy lifestyle


"There is a saying that Yoga is the gateway of happiness that body needs in daily life"

On the occasion of 7th International Yoga Day, Nephrocare India organized a session named "Yoga For Healthy Living" to offer a holistic approach towards a healthy lifestyle with a proper understanding of Yoga. 

Yoga prevents many chronic diseases and is a blessing to mankind. It is the best gift that one can offer to one's own self. Yoga does not change the way we see things; rather it transforms the one who sees.

The event was attended by: Dr. Pratim Sengupta, MD, Internal Medicine and DM, Nephrology as the Mentor; Mr. Subhabrata Bhattacharya, Founder & Director, Mantra Lifestyle Health Club; Mr. Ashish Mittal, Director, Golden Tulip Hotel and several eminent personalities. 

The sessions included Dhauti Kriya, Anga Mardana, Surya Namaskar, Meditation, Om Chanting and Pranayam. Hatha Yoga, Trataka and Mauna was also practised at the programme. 

Mr. Subhabrata Bhattacharya, Founder & Director, Mantra Lifestyle Health Club said, “Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration. Yoga's incorporation of meditation and breathing can help improve a person's mental well-being. Yoga is the golden key to good health and good health is the real wealth."

Mentor of the event, Dr. Pratim Sengupta said, "Yoga is an invaluable gift of India's ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well-being. Let us work towards adopting Yoga in our daily lives."

Mr. Ashish Mittal, Director, Golden Tulip Hotel shared his view, saying "You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside. Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self."

The event was organized in collaboration with Mantra and powered by Map5 Events. It was attended by more than 100 participants at Golden Tulip Hotel, Saltlake, Kolkata.

Market witnessing good amount of business prior Saraswati Puja this year

We have witnessed drastic fall in the sale forth saraswati pujo last year. But this year is little better than previous year. Atleast we can see little increase in the purchase of idol this year. As said by idolseller Bapi. 

Another shopkeeper at 8b bazaar in Jadavpur Kolkata said this year selling of puja material has increased. It is natural because those idol makers who sold five idol last year has sold at least nine idol this year. Hope rain just before the day of Saraswati puja wouldn't destroy excitement of the worshipper. As that may effect the business. 

Bong Journal also witnessed much excitement of the worshipper in the local market two days prior Saraswati Puja

First E-commerce Marketplace which Enlists Creative Artists, Entrepreneurs & Local Artisans for 24x7x365 Online Fair

boutiqart.orgPratayay Sur

This 15th August 2021, www.boutiqart.org, a unique marketplace from Kolkata has started their registration of Boutiques, Artists, Craftsmen, and all Creative Vendors and PIN Partners for listing talents along with unique products and services.No e-commerce platform before offered so much freedom for buyers & sellers to meet online just as they would interact in a fete, exhibition or any flea market (Mela). Boutiqart.org offers the scope for all creative vendors, artists and entrepreneurs to showcase not only their products and service but get PIN based listing with a profile for specific creative category. 

In most of the existing e-commerce portals and online marketplace the makers and creators behind a creative brand of garments, handicraft, fashion, wellness, home decor or design accessory or any innovative items are always kept hidden from the customers. Most e-vendors and online sellers reap hefty profit margins by sourcing items from local and authentic makers and enjoy the exclusivity of talented creators behind their ethnic and unique wares. Boutiqart seeks to bring the resellers, retailers, and boutiques along with the wholesalers, manufacturers and craftsman in a virtual 24 x 7 x 365 Mela for creative commerce from local to global.


Due to the pandemic times, the physical sales from mela, fairs and flea markets have touched the all-time low and the artisans, weavers, art & craft dealers and all types of handicraft oriented sellers are looking for alternatives, however, they are not technologically equipped nor adept in marketing their niche items. The e-commerce giants and popular ethnic store brands are sourcing from the real talents whereas they are denied the scope of meeting the customers and thereby has to remain satisfied with whatever bargain they could make. Boutiqart here seeks to even sponsor the talented craftsmen and creative genius from the remotest parts and not only support them with global marketing but makes them known to the end-users.

Boutiqart is currently looking for young, energetic social entrepreneurs and art connoisseurs to become PIN partners in all districts, towns and cities to help such creative talents enlisted and get the benefit of the creative commerce network.


Boutiqart is being partnered by a Digital Media Platform "Quarantimetv.com (QTV LIVE)"for assisting the creative vendors to perform LIVE Sales in social media like facebook, youtube and instagram through a branded multi-streaming of demonstrations directly from the vendor stores, shops, home, studio and the best part is, buyers can click to get bulk and custom orders and service contracts as the LIVEs are linked to the boutiqart e-commerce profile stores of creative members.

Already fashion designer, Nilufar Ahmed ( Assam government em-paneled fashion entrepreneur of Weave India ) speaks of reaching out to the vast creative artists and traditional craftsmen of not only Guwahati, but of the whole north-east to bring them under the creative network of boutiqart. A kolkta based marketing agency "Reflancer.com" has also been employed to source the creative pool of talents for boutiqart listing. It is estimated that by the middle of year 2022 Boutiqart will be open for all individual and corporate customers to not only order customized services but also get to know about the real artists behind the show, who are always kept behind the curtains when the big creative retailers only share the center stage. 

Boutiqart with time are also aspiring to showcase all local and global events, exhibitions and fetes, provide franchisee support to creative startups, even support the training and passing on the rare skills and tradition of one generation to another by propagating their story to the world.

"Didi, I am only interested in Harischandrapur" Soumitra Roy of Bhoomi appeals to the TMC supremo before Bengal Bidhan sabha polls.

While in an interview to Qurantimetv (QTV LIVE) Soumitra ray the lead vocalist of the Bengali band, Bhoomi requested Mamata Banerjee, CM of West Bengal to let him stand for his home town Harishchandrapur Maldah where he is a son of the soil and philanthropic exploits are discernible.

He told that Harishchandrapur is his native place where his ancestors are well-known.  So he always wanted to do something for the people from his hometown. He owes a lot to the land and if he can't do anything he will be called as traitor.

He said "when I sing, I sing for people and not for any particular party. Similarly I am loved by every party and not by any particular party. So If I request any help for the people they know that I am requesting for the betterment of the area and its people, and not for me. Yes I did some work in road construction, hospitals and ITI college. There was a huge problem of electricity supply in Harishchandrapur. I requested Manish Gupta ( former Minister of Power and electrical engineering) to see the matter. A substation has been constructed and now there is no powercut. This is really a great achievement. Me and the people of Harishchandrapur are really thankful to Manish Gupta and Sobhandeb Chetterjee.

Once Didi asked me to stand for North Maldah constituency for Loksabha. But couldn't win due to various reasons as the environment was not convenient. But this time I am praying to Didi to give me only Harishchandrapur. Otherwise I am not interested. I will only work for people as I am doing now with all your blessings."

What's Up Cafe : A Bewitching Experience Of Rooftop Lounge

My first visit to whatsUp Cafe with my family was to celebrate our 5th anniversary. The main attraction of this place is the rooftop sitting arrangement and live music. The ambience was excellent with panoramic view. But the live music was really average. The interior decoration is also appreciable. We first chose to sit on the rooftop. But it is winter and the breeze was too cold to sit outside with our kid. There's bar and hukka facilities too.

We chose Chicken tikka kabab for starter. The kabab was excellent and was served piping hot with loads of salad and sauce. The kabab was succulent and well cooked. It was so soft inside that easily get melted inside the mouth. My 3 years old daughter really enjoyed the dish as she was easily chewing it.

In the main course we tried Mixed Cantonese Pan fried noodles. It looks moist outside but inside it was crunchy. It was loaded with lots of mushroom and egg. But the amount of chicken and prawn was not enough.

But in total they serve ample amount of food. The main course was more than enough for two person. Foods were really scrumptious and non greasy. Water melon juice was average.

This restro pub is located at Southern Avenue just opposite of Najrul Mancha (Gate - 2). Very near to Golpark and just 10 minutes walking distance from Lake Kali Bari.

P.C - Internet

I am really impressed with their hospitality. All the staffs were polite and very professional. They also give special attention to kids. Even they offer welcome chocolate to my daughter.

 Sreeja Ghosh Sur
Few months back I visited a seminar. The event management company used Floor Graphics with the logo starting from the entrance to direct the visitors towards the seminar hall. This is really a brilliant way to promote the brand. Many Sellers are now using this unique way to uphold their business. In most shopping Malls and Supermarkets the floor directional graphics of phosphorescent material  are used for leading people in case of an emergency power cut.

Bongjournal Floor Graphics Post

I have seen many stores using floor graphics to promote the discount near the billing counter just to grab the attention of the customer. It surely will increase the impulsiveness among the customers.
If you want your customer to know your brand then simply use the floor graphics with foot print to guide the customer towards the product.

In the mobile store picture Color Magic has used the floor graphics to complement the brand new product release theme . Now the thing is that, everyday we come across lots of ads. But how many of them do we remember or notice to register in our brain? This is because we see them in the same boring pattern and in the same predictable eye line. And those ads are so expected that they show no impact on buyers. Floor graphics is an excellent novel idea to draw the attention being targeted for its unconventional positioning. The demands for floor ADS are increasing day by day. With the advent of anamorphic floor graphics now the WOW factor also startles the viewer to interact with the ads.

Another reason for using floor graphics is that it can be seen from distance. Once I have seen a floor graphics promoting a famous battery brand just near the escalator. This is really an outstanding idea. This is because most people have tendency to look downwards while boarding on the escalators. People also stare downwards while chatting over phone. So floor graphics is the right way to set a purposeful message regarding the product.

Floor graphics logo can also be effective in the visiting room of nursing home particularly just below the chairs where people wait for longer time.  

Endurance of Floor Graphics

  • According to Color Magic Floor graphics are extremely flexible. 
  • Special lamination are provided over self-adhesive vinyl
  • Floor Graphics slip resistant, can continue from three months to one year.
  • Don’t get fade easily and are waterproof.  
  • Easily removable
  • Don’t leave any adhesive remains or damage the area of application.
  • Finally if you use anamorphic technique the battle is half won.
