WTF we had- Cheers to Girl Gang

June 4, 2016

I was sad the day my Father got me admitted to All Girls college. Not sure why- Should I blame teenage or the missing male element or just the preconceived notion of boring and life-less girls college   Phew! I cannot be sure about the answer as it was a long time now (It was 2003), leaving faded memories. But the crux is I WAS WRONG. I couldn’t enjoyed that much if it was a co-ed counterpart rather than girls…

Sparing myself peace of mind

June 1, 2016

“Peace of mind comes from not wanting to change others.” From last 2 days, I am using Eye signs more than words, Hmmm.. rather than a sentence and a Grin rather than Nag. It was more peaceful than ever. A rhythm was not broken. I stopped noticing the things which disturbs my peace of mind. I spoke to myself and told “I cannot make everything perfect. I cannot change everyone than myself.” And why I wanna change something or someone-…

Who am I? A Soul who never stops evolving

May 27, 2016

Who am I? We are not made in one day. It took years to shape up our current mindsets, values, habits and preferences. In this journey we meet so many people who grind us, polish us and reshape us to the one we are now. Change is one constant thing in this journey of continuous transformation. But if we approach change reluctantly, refusing to acknowledge it as life’s basic rhythm,  and instead foolishly devote our energies to trying to prevent…

I will stop using distraction for making my toddler eat

March 30, 2016

I wonder today- Why I use smartphone as a distraction for my Toddler. Don’t I have any other option?? Throughout my childhood, I always spotted my Mother reading a book with her glasses on. She habitually insisted on their worth and advised us to explore the reading arena. She told us that Books are our best friends.  They give and give without demanding anything in return. A vast endless sea of knowledge and wisdom. Now I get it, my Blogging…

LET IT GO

March 14, 2016

Thanks to all who make me – Let it go Losing a precious thing is hurtful, it makes your mind numb. You enter a vicious circle where Hope and Quitting follow each other. You stroll your cupboards, your drawers, your handbags with no luck but only a hope. And If the lost thing was gifted, the pain is even more. Last week I lost a Bracelet, gifted by my Mother. The price and love attached with it was making me…

Hospitals and missing Hospitality

February 24, 2016

Hospitals should be packed with Positive vibes that they can surpass the affect of Grief and Sufferings of patients. In one of my previous Posts, I shared my experience of a day spent in Hospital. A helping hand is missing in Indian Government hospitals and latest experience of my Family proves that true. Few days back, one of my Maternal Aunt was diagnosed with swelling in Kidneys. She referred a private Doctor who advised her to undergo a small surgery.…

Less Fortunate

February 18, 2016

Less fortunate- A phrase with varying definitions as it can only be measured relatively. When we compare ourselves with the ones more privileged, we would always feel less fortunate. It was my Husband’s Birthday and like every year, we have chosen to donate fruits to the less fortunate Kids sitting outside the temple. The moment we step outside, they gathered around us asking for Prasad (Sacramant) One of them informed us smartly “By the time you will come with it,…

Music is What I am Grateful for

January 28, 2016

Music makes us smile it makes us relax Music helps us express it makes us laugh Music soaks our soul in the sea of joy Music found us or We found Music Just as God needs Devotees, Music also needs an ear to listen, Mind to linger on, and a Tongue to hum. It does not have any language nor it has any boundaries. When you feel low or knocked out and no one to share your feelings with, there…

Sleepless nights: Fantastico experience

January 27, 2016

Are you a Sleep deprived mom? Sleepless is a new adjective in my life adding to my other self-proclaimed traits. I had never been an early bird despite my multiple resolutions nor I had a habit to hit the bed before the clock strike 12. But then that’s enough of sleep- 7 hrs for a normal person. I wonder if I am no more a normal person now. How much would I sleep, I crave for some more. Is this…

Paragliding was on my Bucket List

January 20, 2016

Paragliding in India has gain popularity in recent years. In my previous post on Bucket list, I did not mention about my ex-wish:  Paragliding. Unlike me, my Husband does not love adventure. It put me off sometimes but then, I have to accept that we all are born different. Partners are not necessarily alike- We both are not for sure 😉 I got a chance to tick off my wish 3 years back while we were in Darjelling. It was…
