At the mention of Zucchini,don't mistake this article for a recipe on the vegetable! While Zucchini is a vegetable no doubt but this article is a brand review of a children's clothing line that goes by the same name and is sold exclusively on Jabong- your home and fashion e-shopping portal.

I had an opportunity to do some brand shopping for children's apparel and share my experience on the same through a, here it is!

Describing the brand in a nutshell: Zucchini is a brand for the smart, stylish and trendy kid! The children of today are little fashionistas in themselves and are at par with their adult counterparts when it comes to exploring their fashion needs and discovering their fashion sense.Zucchini on their part promises you a colorful palette and wide variety of children's clothing ranging from Tees, jeans,shirts, printed dresses, trousers, shorts etc. is what their smart collection boasts of!

According to the chapter of Genesis in The Bible, God said -“Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

In Biblical times,when God saw bad things happening on earth,he commanded Noah, a humble God fearing man to build a gigantic ark and take his family along with a pair of every animal into the covenant to save it from the fury that He was set to unleash on his disobedient children. 

Back then,the animals and a few of God's chosen ones may have survived the apocalypse of mass destruction but man yet did not learn his lesson. 

Centuries later, we have progressively continued to destroy many of God's beautiful creatures and frittered away the precious resources like the floras,faunas,rain forest areas, jungle cover and water bodies and have gradually brought our planet on her knees.

The coming of summers simply means that the time to gorge on ice creams,ice candies, Kulfis, Colas and Golas has arrived. And when you are particularly outdoors exposed to the sultry heat all day long... who can resist these sweet temptations?! Somehow our summers are incomplete without these coolants even as we are/choose to be blissfully (un)aware of their  (un)sweetening reality!

We need quick fixes to satiate our culinary needs and taste buds or we tend to get restless. And with our hunger pangs met by restaurants and food joints/parlors that are flourishing by dime a dozen around the corner or for that matter even food websites/ apps etc that's available to us at the click of a seems strange that we do not find the time to take a few steps into our kitchen instead and surprise ourselves by whipping up an interesting dish or relish what our loved ones have prepared for us! We have either become too lazy or too ignorant on our part to distinguish between nectar served at home and poison dished to us outside in the name of food!

Rains bring alive romance and our fashion sense is in many ways influenced by romance!

However,the greatest irony of all time is that rains and fashion share an inversely proportional relationship with one another!

So,the heavier the rains the less likely it is that you'd even be keen to flaunt your favorite apparel or that chic outfit from your wardrobe on an outdoor rendezvous! And remote are the chances of you venturing out of your house all dressed up even if a tempting monsoon sale of fashion goods underway in your city! ( must be thanking the monsoons for keeping their girlfriends/spouses away from shopping and saving them the heartache of a depleting bank balance! :-) ) 

And as for not planning on some outdoor activities particularly when it's raining...I don't blame you for that! It's more to do with the psychosis of 'rain-fear' that has gotten the better of us over the years!  

The coming of rains simply implies...

a. I can't go out. Period.

b. I can't wear my favorite outfit...what if a passing vehicle splashes muck on it?

c. What a pity...I can't wear those new pair of sandals I purchased! What if I put my feet in a pool of muddy water? 

d. Or what if my heels and sole begin to crack due to constant exposure to water?

e. Why should I take the pains to accessorize my overall look when no one is even gonna see?

f. What's the point of looking good in the first place when at the end of the day I am going to look all messed up? 

g. What's the fun going shopping with my girl-friends when rains are going to play spoil-sport to all the plans I have made for the day?

Phew...the list of 'can't', 'why' and 'what' never ceases to be! Rains may have just begun but the showers of excuses are many!
