"The purpose of life is to Live it,to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience."
If I am writing this today it’s only because my parents gave me this life to cherish and be happy about everything I have had so far.
May be it was all destined to happen by the almighty that I come in the middle of someone’s life story long back and be able tell a story of my own today. As its part of many bad human nature to complain about things we did not get to enjoy or what we were deprived of because of some reason but there are also few great things which happen to us and we forget to think and smile about them with gratitude for who or what made it happen one among them is childhood.
I believe childhood is very special period of everyone’s life where in no worries, no foes, no fear , no hindsight biased discussions, no pre notions yes of course there is less freedom always under care and consent of loved ones. Don’t do that , don’t go there ,don’t eat that, don’t throw that, don’t touch that etc.ets too many “No&Don’t”s..I also have lot of good memories .
However old , rich, busy parents are they always try to do best of what they can to their little ones. I remember a scene from my childhood, during my third standard we were living in a paying guest then. Where I and my elder brother went to our school staying there, as my grandmother was ill and bedridden my mom had to take care of her in our village so she left us as paying guest in a catholic family from where I learnt some Konkani(language spoken by Christians in and around Udupi ) and Christian prayers too.
During our stay in that boarding house my Amma would visit me twice or thrice in a month, those were like our full moon days as she wouldn’t only come with love and care but also get a bag full of snacks , chyawanprash and a bottle of goodness- Horlicks .Our most tastier and healthiest form of milk too.
Horlicks contains wheat, malt barley, sugar, milk +vitamins(A,C,D,E,B1,B5,B6,B12, biotin acid ,folic acid, calcium and fibre) which is called as Horlicks named after William Horlick and is manufactured and sold by GlaxoSmithKline in many countries.
In India as we all know we have lost lot of things after the British ruled us and we curse them for the pain and distress they caused among our forefathers but somewhere in the corner they have left behind few good things for us to continue and take it further for our social development like railways, education system, convent schools as well as this magical jar of goodness named HORLICKS which was initially consumed only by the Indian soldiers of the British Indian Army ,they brought it back to India with them as a supplement to the diet. Since then, it became a family drink and even was a kind of status symbol in the rich Indian society.
The brand went through a makeover in the year 2003 to bring in some changes with the changing times and introduced new flavours to drink such as toffee, vanilla, honey, chocolate and elaichi ( cardamom). They also brought in variants such as Junior Horlicks, Mother’s Horlicks, Women’s Horlicks, Lite Horlicks, and Horlicks Gold.
Horlicks provides kids all most every important vitamin a kid requires for a healthy physical and mental growth in its childhood. Along with all this it also helps kids get sound sleep which is the foremost reason for healthy leaving. I love horlicks even now.
