#RealTogetherness of my Life

 Blog Post- 116th

Day- 1123rd

Hello readers!

This year, Kissanpur calls people to come and discover the joy of Real Togetherness. So I am going to share my joy of Real Togetherness in this blog post to contribute in the initiative by Kissan India.

Before I tell you about my joy of Real Togetherness, let me tell you  something about Kissanpur and their brand Kissan India.


Kissanpur is a world that celebrates all things natural. Prepared with useful tips, rewards and fun activities the website pushes you and your kid back out into nature to grow fresh, ripe tomatoes! In fact every bottle of Kissan ketchup comes with a packet of seeds and a tomato-shaped cap that doubles up as a pot.

Kissanpur is a world where we can wriggle out of the clutches of our gadgets and revive the joy of Real Togetherness. Let’s come and start our journey with family, friends and neighbors and let’s discover together how tiny tomato seeds grow into ripe, juicy tomatoes we can learn tips and tricks, earn points and top 100 growers get their picture printed on a Kissan bottle.

Kissanpur is a journey that helps you and your little one discover Mother Nature. While this exciting journey of seeds to tomato wines to bearing juicy tomatoes can get the top100 growers to feature on Kissan Ketchup bottles, the real benefit is to enjoy the magic of nature with our family, friends and neighbors and discovering the joy of Real Togetherness.

You can also play games on your device:-

  • Farm Hunting:-

Hunt the notorious mongoose to stop him from spoiling your farm. He keeps popping from different holes he’s made.

As I wrote in beginning of this post, Kissanpur calls people to come and discover the joy of Real Togetherness. Kissan India urges people to share the meaning of Real Togetherness in their life. I too have discovered the Real Togetherness in my life. It’s not possible for me to share the meaning of Real Togetherness in my life into one of my blog post, because there are different meanings of Real Togetherness in each aspect of my life in different situation. Every aspect of my life have it’s different meaning of Real Togetherness, so it’s not possible for me to share all experiences of Real Togetherness here. If I would try to share all the meanings of Real Togetherness from each aspect of my life, this will not remain a blog post; this post can turn into a huge novel!

However, I have to share what ‘Real Togetherness’ means to me and how nature can help us do something together. So, here is…


  • Discovery Of Joy:- Discovery of joy from little incidents happening in life means Real Togetherness for me.
  • To Revive Joy Of Real Togetherness:- I like not only to just discover a joy of Real Togetherness, but to revive the joy together.
  •  Living Life with Happiness:- To enjoy every moment of life with joy and happiness and to store every memory and to live with optimism means Real Togetherness of life for me.
  •  Reading Books:- They say “Books are the best friends of human being.” I am a bookworm and reading books is my passion. When I read books, ‘we’ (me and the characters from book) live together really. Experience of reading books makes me feel of Real Togetherness with books and the characters.  
  •  Building Meaningful Relationships:- Building meaningful relationship in reality instead of building virtual relationship means Real Togetherness for me.
  •  Breaking Free From The Clutches Of Smart Phone:- Experience of breaking free from the clutches of smart phone brings Real Togetherness.
  •  Connect In Person:- We see people spending time in chatting with friends on social media, transferring greetings through internet; but I think interaction while connected in person means Real Togetherness than the interaction held through virtual world.
  •  Company Of Family, Friends And Neighbors:- Spending time in the company of family, friends and neighbors in some special occasions means the Real Togetherness for me.
  •  Feeling and Sharing Real Emotions:- Real emotions’ feeling and sharing with friends and family bonds a relation with Real Togetherness.
  • Nature Trail:- Climbing on trees, running through fields and breathing fresh crisp air was a big part of all our childhood. Those kinds of little incidents have become vanished from childhood now a days; but those memories of nature trail are still together in life.
  •  Helping Like Nature:- As nature helps continuously without even asking for return, Real Togetherness means helping others selflessly like nature for me.
  •  Real Togetherness means Playing Games:- Playing games makes your sports spirit strong and connects you to Real Togetherness.
