Take care of following things:

1) Cut in expenses – Save Money:

Expend your money only on basic needed things. Avoid expenses on Things those comes under comfort, lavish life style.

Avoid Hoteling: Avoid hotels for food; preparing food at home is always economical and hygienic. If you can not avoid hoteling then find out hotels those are cheap and hygienic.

Avoid Vacations, Traveling: If you have kept aside some money for vacations or you are in planning of outing for vacation then drop the idea. Save the money for coming months.

Avoid Movies in multiplexes: Money we expend on movie tickets and costly snacks in multiplexes has never been worth, at least not in such financial crunch.

Avoid Parties: Try to avoid any kind of grand parties like birthday, marriage etc parties.

Avoid Shopping: avoid unnecessary purchasing. Avoid purchasing at Malls, and in branded showrooms.

2) Save your jobs:

Try to save your job in any condition; don’t even think about job switching.

If you are facing salary cut, or salary late issues or work pressure, or work load or extra working hour then go for it, accept it by keeping one thing in mind that conditions outside are worst than ever. Even you get job outside you will be the first when this company will think about layoffs.

Do your work with loyalty; trust on yourself and on your company.

Stay yourself away from any kind politics and rumors.

Keep yourself positive and try to keep your teammates also.

Keep eye on market news, what going in other companies, market condition and decide your plans according.

Show willingness to be flexible:If you think you can do or take up other responsibilities with the current once start taking them proactively. Employers today are looking for multi talented resources and if you are a match to a extent you are secured.

3) Be ready for Layoffs:

Be ready for layoffs, and keep checking the possible sectors, fields where you can get job.

Check whether you can start small business or alternative that can fulfill your basic bread and butter requirement.

Keep some money with you or in your account so you can survive at least 3 to 6 months in case you loose job.

Keep your money in nationalize, trustworthy and well reputed bank so your money will be secure.

4) Make your succession plan:

Keeping the worst case scenario in mind, look for ideas, alternatives, and options to supplement your current salary. If you are working somewhere and have some fixed income you are a bit more stable and can think of some side business rather then starts thinking of the same after you get laid off/lock out etc etc…

This other income though it might not be a huge amount would be helpful as in worst case scenario you can increase/expand this as a full time carrier option. (and if this idea/business works and starts giving you equal returns as your salary nothing like it as being self employed is always better then the otherwise)

5) Stay Connected:

This will always keep you informed about the latest news, updates incase of adversity their might be people who can help you out. So stay in touch with all your old, new friends and relatives (you never know who can help you when in need).

All the Best.

HOLI - Festival of colours

The festival of Holi is celebrated on the day after the full moon in early March (Phalguna) every year.

Holi celebration begins with lighting up of bonfire symbolizing the victory of good over evil.

A public bonfire is held, commemorating the burning of Holika. Traditionally, Hindu boys spend the weeks prior to holi combing the neighborhood for any waste wood they can find for the bonfire.

On the second day, known as Dhulhendi (Dhulwad), people spend the day throwing coloured powder and water at each other. The spring season, during which the weather changes, is believed to cause viral fever and cold. Thus, the playful throwing of the coloured powders has a medicinal significance: the colours are traditionally made of Neem, kukmkum, Haldi, Bilva and other medicinal herbs prescribed by Ayurvedic doctors. A special drink called thandai is prepared, sometimes containing Bhaang. People invite each other to their houses for feasts and celebrations.

Legends & stories associated with Holi.

Holi is now a symbolic commemoration of a legend from Hindu Mythology. The story centres around an arrogant king who resents his son Prahlada worshipping Lord Vishnu. He attempts to kill his son but fails each time. Finally, the king's sister Holika who is said to be immune to burning, sits with the boy in a huge fire. However, the prince Prahlada emerges without injury, while his aunt burns to death. Holi commemorates this event from mythology, and huge bonfires are burnt on the eve of Holi as its symbolic representation.

This festival is also associated with the immortal love of Krishna and Radha, and hence, Holi is spread over 16 days in Vrindavan as well as Mathura. Apart from the usual fun with coloured powder and water, Holi is marked by vibrant processions which are accompanied by folk songs, dances and a general sense of abandoned vitality.

Holi in different parts of India:

In Maharashtra, Holi is called Shimga or Rangpanchami.

Holi differs from North India in Maharashtra, People of Maharashtra celebrate Holi like the North Indians. Play with colours is Rangpanchami, which comes five days after Phalgun Poornima. Puran-poli is dish of festival.

In Bengal, Holi features the Dolayatra (Swing Festival), in which images of the gods are placed on specially decorated platforms and devotees take turns swinging them.

In Punjab, they call it 'Hola Mohalla', Holla Mohalla is celebrated a day after Holi in Punjab especially by the Nihang Sikhs.

In Rajasasthan, The Braj Festival is held in honour of Lord Krishna a few days before Holi, in the month of March. There are different holi traditions in rajasthan like Mali holi, Gair at Godaji, Dolachi holi at Bikaner.

In the towns of Rajasthan — especially Jaisalmer — the music's great, and clouds of pink, green, and turquoise powder fill the air. The grounds of Jaisalmer's Mandir Palace are turned into chaos, with dances, folk songs, and colored-powder confusion.
