Best sweet shop in Noida: Ring in the festive spirit, celebrate Mithai time!

This is the festive season and though Diwali is over, we have Christmas and the New Year coming up, don't we?  This Diwali, I was on the lookout for the best mithai shop in Noida and guess what I found?  There are plenty of options but none that I particularly liked. However, get yourself the most delectable mithai from Hira Sweets, Sector 51, Noida. They also have an outlet just near to JAM Shipra Mall at Ghaziabad.

Now I know you are looking out for the best sweet shop in Noida, which is why you are reading this. But it may help to know that Hira's sweet shops also offer a wide range of varieties of pastries, namkeens, snacks and chaat as well.  Note that their mithai boxes are on the expensive side. When you have a special celebration at home, your guests are bound to be impressed by the taste - I can assure you that from personal experience. It's lip-smacking delicious, mind it!

Seriously, the things that best friends do for each other - we can't ever understand it logically, can we? It comes from the heart.

Does Maha Mrityunjaya mantra work?

Many people ask me this question, ''Does Maha Mrityunjaya mantra work?''. Mantras always work but the problem is that we are often not open to believing this.  The query about whether the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra works comes in different forms, sometimes by email, in the comments section or in person. Most people are curious, some are interested but few are committed to sincerely want the answer.

I am just an ordinary seeker on the spiritual path but my experiences have taught me valuable lessons and I am sharing this with you so that it helps your spiritual progress.
From what I have learned from my grandmother, who was a devout Shiva Bhakt throughout her life, the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra is a powerful mantra that has ancient sounds which provides an aura of protection to those who chant it with faith regularly and it triggers powerful energies to remove sufferings and diseases. This is why Hindus believe that the one who chants the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra will be blesse…
