The Importance of Receiving A Massage


I used to think that getting a massage on a regular basis was somewhat of a luxury and only required when on vacation or something to reward yourself with. However, I learned that getting a massage regularly can help your muscles recover properly after strenuous workouts. Last week, I went to a nail salon close by my workplace to get a manicure and I decided to get a 10-minute chair massage also. My masseur helped me face forward on a chair with my face resting in a cradle looking down towards the floor. This sitting posture helped my back and neck completely relax while the masseur used the Swedish massage technique to relieve muscle tension. This type of massage is also used to enhance the flow of blood to the heart, remove waste products from tissues, stretch ligaments and tendons, and ease physical and emotional tension.

Kiran’s Korner – Brown Rang by Yo Yo Honey Singh

My favorite Punjabi rapper /producer – Honey Singh – just released the music video for his super hit song Brown Rang.

Honey Singh came out with his album IV – International Villager, in November 2011 and has released music videos for Dope Shope, Gabru and Angrezi Beat. The music video for Brown Rang, a song that became an instant favorite for many music lovers, was on high demand. Finally, the music video has been released. The video is very elegant, well-designed, and chic. The music video shows scenes of a beautiful Bugatti rollin’ through the streets while Honey Singh serenades a stunning “brown girl.”

Kiran’s Korner – New Music – KUDI by Tigerstyle

Another track that has caught my eye this week is Kudi (Girl), which is the first release from Tigerstyle’s forthcoming new album titled Digi-Bhang. Tigerstyle’s new material showcases the unique direction they are taking, by making use of electronic and synthetic sounds but always fusing with Bhangra, international elements and plenty of BASS!! This track features vocals of highly acclaimed female Punjabi singer Rani Randeep and comes with a bunch of intense genre jumping remixes, pure ammunition for all dance floors.

After putting out music videos for Kinna Sohna Munda, Beyonce, as well as, Electro Love Boliyan, Bikram Singh is back with a fresh new music video for his song Nachengi. This track is yet another energy infused production by Bikram and Tigerstyle for dancefloor and iPods alike. Taken from the hit album BIK.I.AM out on Soldier Sound Recordings and Sony Music Entertainment.

Crack is Whack!

I was at my friend’s place in Philadelphia when I heard of Whitney Houston’s death. We were all sitting around getting ready to eat dinner, laughing and having a good time. I was so shocked by her death that I asked my friends if we could have a moment of silence for her. I obviously don’t know her personally but I grew up listening to her and belting her songs out at the top of my lungs that I felt as if she was a part of me. My favorite song was“I Will Always Love You” and I could never, for the life of me, hit the notes right. Such a beautiful song but also a difficult one to sing. Truly talented singers like Whitney are hard to come by and they only come around once in a lifetime. Continue reading

Good Friends, Good Wine & Good Times

Philadelphia, PA

This past weekend, I took a trip down to the beautiful and cozy city of Philadelphia, PA to spend time with the best friends I have ever had. I met all of them when I was 17 years old and for the past 10 years, I have enjoyed every single moment in their company. They are the ones who make my life so exciting! Every morning after I wake up, I like to tune into NBC’s Today Show and Willard Scott, where he announces Centenarian birthdays. One Centenarian remarked that the secret to longevity is to having good friends by his side. How sweet, right?! It is important to hold great and meaningful relationships with the ones you love because I personally believe it is the key to happiness and longevity.
