My corner of the Earth...

I live in this charming city of Hyderabad  where the people  speak a unique language. It is a delectable mix of Urdu and Telugu which can only be called Hyderabadi but there is a fact which is lesser known about the people here and that is - They all care for their environment.
I'm especially impressed with the ban imposed on the use of plastic carry bags by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation. Small little adjustments we make in our lives like using reusable bags,conserving electricity and using a handkerchief instead of  tissues can go a long way in improving the present environment scene.So now I go shopping with my eco- friendly  bags and hum my fav. Jamiroquai song -  I know this corner of the earth smiles at me.....

This is a pic of my bag made from Banana tree fibers - Isn't it clever...

Corns and calluses are thickening of the skin which is hardened by friction and gets tougher due to repeated pressure.

When a few leaves of the Jasmine plant are crushed and rubbed over the problem area- the calluses slowly weaken and gradually disappear.
