Confession of a Father : Daddy-baby bond story

I was surprised the other day when my Husband, who is no more a new Dad, had said this to me while we were looking at our toddler with the utmost affection and love as he was leaping into his dream world. “I could now feel more connected to him than when he was born”.

Dealing with people and unsolicited advice

May 4, 2016

Unsolicited advice is a common thing in our country. Every Parent has to face it. ‘WEAK’ is a haunted word to me. It’s been overused by people around, to the point of losing its original meaning. Let’s not confuse it with slim. This interchanging of words has become ingrained enough in our psyche as to become a cliché. I was a lean but active child- fond of butter and paneer. Despite my love for milk products, I did not ever have…

Cycling in India has taken a backseat

April 11, 2016

CyclyngA rare scene in India is to spot an educated person riding a Bicycle. Once we hop on these fuel-thirsty vehicles, we never look back even once. If you are an Indian, you will get my point. We Indians have this habit of relating all the things with the financial status. If one can afford a 4-wheeler, why shall he keep a 2 wheeler or If one can afford a fueled 2 wheeler, Why Cycle?? You agree with me, Don’t…

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…
