With summer vacations, coming to an end and school opening round the corner, running around for the parents have started. Coming back to routine for the kids is one challenging task as they get used to having their way around since the past two months.

Now have to start planning the menus for the breakfast, lunch boxes. New books, new friends, new uniforms when i see the twinkle in his eyes talking about them, i get transported to my childhood. We used to be all excited and nervous. (In fact every year i used to make a note to keep all my books neat and well maintained till the end of the year, which somewhere half way would be lots :( )

We unlike, these kids won't get the new text books. We used to carry forward the old ones used by friends/cousins. Lucky few used to get brand new all text books every year. We always liked and used the second hand one.

The fun of June is about to start and i am as excited as my kid and am looking forward for all this year has to offer.

Being a mom

I know we all feel the pressure of being a super mom. These days women's multitask so much, that they forget to enjoy the roles they play.

Being a mom is one such wonderful experience. To be responsible in making the child a better human, inculcating the right values, teach them to be respective, educate, so much to do and I can say only Mother's can do that. I know and agree it's  a tough job but the pleasure it gives us is always something that cannot be expressed in words.

Mom, now I understand the satisfaction of giving the bigger piece of chocolate or leaving the major portion of my favorite food, which is even kiddos favorite. Now I know the happiness in cooking what the child loves inspite of being tired. Now I understand the pain when the lunch box comes back unfinished, now I relate to the worry,  when kiddo falls sick and how difficult I find to see him in that state. Now I understand the happiness when he leaps for a hug, now I relate to the smile when kids do well. Now I understand the joy in the pain of giving birth.

Thank you mom for being there always. Thank you God for giving a chance to experience this roller coaster journey called "Motherhood".

Happy Mothers day to all wonderful ladies who experience this wonderful journey, and the ones who are going to enter the club. It's a wonderful journey with many ups and downs, but hey, that's what life is all about, right?

Summer vacations

Summer vacations bring back vivid memories.  Family,  grandparents, native, cousins, lots of fun and ofcourse the king of fruits Mangoes.

We always used  to look forward for the vacations for the sheer pleasure of being able to do nothing and anything anytime. 😁.  So many outdoor games and activities planned amongst ourselves, the smells of pickles, Mangoes and papads alongside fun with cousins, those days used  to be bliss.

With changing  times and working parents and apartment system, today's kids don't know what they are missing out on. All the games they know of is virtually,computers and  tablets. The fun of carefree life is lost admist summer camps and vacation  classes.

Lookback April Challenge

Now that I completed the challenge, I can feel good and proud. I know more than taking a challenge, fulfilling it is quite a task.

Thanks for all the support from the co-blogger friends. Especially the ones who made time to read the posts and commented. Thank you for the valuable comments and time. I too had read quite a few blogs and must say was in love with them, for their writing and clarity of thoughts and the way they say something very simply, but profound.

Hoping to keep up the tradition of taking part in the challenge henceforth. See you all next year too.

Being a girl

All said and done, with education and experience too the expectations from a girl never changes. They are expected to multi-task, study, work, cook and even take care of family.

Nothing wrong in all this but as a responsible parent I feel its time we start educating even boys to do all chores. Even in this day and age mom's teach house hold chores to girls but boy's,  they're still pampered and exempted.  With changing times I feel,  it's high time that instead of teaching girls how to be ideal we start training boys how to be a wonderful husband or hands on father. More so to respect and appreciate instead of trying to bring them down.

What say??  Feel free to share your Thoughts.

Z for Zen April A-Z Challenge 2016

Zen like means to be able to relax and let go of things which are beyond our control. There's only this much we can do sometimes we have to leave certain things to life/ destiny/God.

It's not easy to have such a habit. The only person I can think of is Gautam Buddha and M S Dhoni. In awe of such people who are able to let go of the worries and surrender themselves. Not a quality everyone can boast of. Maybe that is what makes them special and others ordinary.

I feel we all are work in progress, we all have some qualities, some we need to learn. Life is a journey and we all need to keep learning new things to reinvent/ develop our own self. Not get depressed, remain calm, never have high expectations, have a great set of friends, leave some good things for the next generation, spread joy and always keep smiling.

With this post the A-Z Challenge comes to an end. Thanks to all the wonderful people who visited this space.

Yours Truly A-Z April 2016 Challenge


I know we are all so busy, living busy lives, that we rarely connect. Doesn't mean that i don't value you. I value you more now, but now i take you granted a little (Although i know it's wrong), i assume you to be always around me, taking care of me, listening to me and trying to understand me.

I know we speak a lot but we still never say what we truly mean to each other, always ready to defend ourselves saying its implied. In this materialistic world, and technology savvy era how much ever we move forward, words still mean a lot. Saying simple things matter a lot. So even though we send similes/ emoticons, more than them simple words and gestures touch us more.

Love is such a beautiful thing in life, and being in love the best. I know you keep pestering me, pushing me a little more to do my best. There are times I ignore your voice because i feel if I listen would get more confused. Really foolish to ignore because you are the one who gives clarity on them. Just want to say I believe you and have learnt to listen and thank you for all the wonderful things in life. Thank you for being there for me, for teaching me to be grounded and humble. Thank you for blessing me with so much love and positivity.

Yours Truly
