Sitting alone in her nest,
She often ponders,
About those little birds,
Who used to flock around,
Those tiny mouths she fed,
The soft skin she once caressed,
Where have all gone?
Making her life dull,
Now food has no taste,
Music to her sounds like a noise,
Day night her head however,
echoes with one lovely voice,
No one remembers her efforts still,
Her dim yet hopeful eyes,
Will stare the infinity until,
Someone appears to save her faith,
Or to shake it for good,
Give her the hint,
of a flight forever,
Or a comeback of the brood.
Side effects of watching daily soaps especially the one like ‘Dil se dil tak’…
I have dreams where the most eligible bachelors of the ‘world’ approach me (I know you are smiling 😆😆😆…go on!)…yeah the most desired handsome hunks on Earth come to me with their honest love proposals…and they really look miserable…as if their world would crumble the moment I say No!!!!😊😊😊😊
And look at the height…instead of jumping with joy…I tell them to rethink 😯😯…and forget about this love shove😫😫😫.
What a FOOL!!!!😮😮😮
They say our fingerprints are unique… you can’t fool anyone!!!!🤔🤔🤔
My phone is not sensing my fingerprints anymore…😮😮😮
ThankGod there’s this other option of entering the password
or the security would bar me as well!!! 😉😉😉😉
But it’s out…finger prints can’t be considered the ultimate identity…
I mean people do suffer from skin allergies sometime!!!😁😁😁
Think about it!!
Wandering cotton balls in a background so blue,
Sun at its brightest, birds with a nonstop coo;
This is the Afterglow of a winter rain,
Making the world prettier, painting it anew.
It feels great when you see Facebook updates of girls’ gangs going out on weekends, all by themselves! (read it, without the so called ‘security guards’ from the opposite gender)! You are like ‘So what! Today, girls are independent, and they have every right to do so!’
Though, we would definitely love the above idea, had we not witnessed many inappropriate incidences occurring around us. I am a firm believer in equality whether it’s a matter of education, work, duties, responsibilities… and even FUN. Yes, we all should have an equal right to enjoyment! But is it so?
Recently the Newpapers talked too much about ‘Bengaluru issue’. Even we as human need to ask ourselves, ‘Why such accidents occur?’
It is sad, really. Do celebrations mean only to get deadly drunk and spread anarchy? or do people get drunk only to cover for their regrettable animal behaviour shown while intoxicated! Well, when a crowd is high, it’s stupid to expect decency from them.
During a recent trip, I witnessed this absolutely ‘never-going-to-fill’ gap between two genders, no matter how modern they claim themselves to be! (By modern I mean the ones who boasts of not believing in the ‘Set’ norms in a society). But unfortunately, I didn’t notice any modernisation, except for the emptying bottles, raising voices, and declining etiquette! ‘Sanes’ were mutating to some ‘Junkies’; adopting some alien language as the booze was getting over their heads. We saw them spoiling the fun for the opposite gender. There were many girls’ troops also who spent equal money, for what?
Hundreds of the ‘joy-blind’ males were having ‘their’ kind of fun and tens of the ‘fun-hungry’ females were helplessly staring from distance…the chaos. How could they join in, carefree? I question?
With such wrong expression of joy, how the females were expected to have fun?
The latest anarchy in Bengaluru is nothing but an advanced stage of such nuisance!
So does it mean girls should let people mistreat them for showing courage to venture out and call it fun or should they remain confined to four walls and time limits of their house and work places, and always calculate all the pros and cons before trying to enjoy outdoor?
I don’t have the answer. I only have questions! And one question that keeps bothering me all the time is not ‘Why should boys have all the fun?’
but ‘When would boys know this is no more…fun?’
The days are ‘Summerish’ here though officially, it’s winter in northern India. The Schools and Colleges are granted their well deserved winter vacations. To make the most of the opportunity and to embrace the New Year, I along with family, headed to the neighbouring hilly state of Uttrakhand. The trip was absolutely impromptu and I was all geared up for surprises!
They say it’s the journey that matters not the destination. In our case it was opposite. The entire ride was rather frustrating partly because of the undesirably wriggling traffic and partly because of lack of expected novelty until of course we entered ‘The Door to God’, ‘Haridwar’.
‘Haridwar’ has a special place during our upbringing. We always knew it as a place where the ashes of departed souls are immersed in Ganges. The job is mostly done by the male family members, so this was the last place in my list to be called as tourist destination. And moreover, I expected it to be filthy and unhygienic! But today on seeing it for real, I can hardly trust my eyes. A gaze at green water of Ganges soothes one’s eyes, and its flow cleanses the soul.
I myself got so immersed in the flow; it was a feeling beyond words. Some things just touch us deep. ‘Ganga’ is nothing I have ever thought; it is so pure, and aptly revered.
Willingly we stayed near ‘Har ki paudi’ to witness the immensely celebrated evening ‘Aarti’ and I tell you, it was ‘divine’ from start till end.
I won’t hesitate to say that the so called ‘pseudo-religious’ people have spread their hold over this pious place as well but then again… it’s a personal choice; to believe what you see…
but what you feel… is what you treasure; there’s no adulteration.
The divinity forced me to take a dip in the freezing water of holy Ganga and surprisingly, I don’t regret!
Honestly, the trip was an enticing one and I immediately felt a connection with ‘I don’t know what’! But I got moved…. 🙂
“God can’t be present everywhere, so he made mother”
In short he shifted his responsibility of taking care of his children to Mothers. Only a mother can love her children selflessly. From the moment a life starts budding inside her, till she breaths her last, a mother incessantly works for the wellbeing of her kids. She sacrifices her interests to see one smile on their face. The entire being of a human depends on how concerned a mother was while it was in the making, both inside the womb or outside in the social environment.
Just giving birth to a baby doesn’t make you a Mother; there are umpteen roles and responsibilities in the waiting. Once the good news is out, life style of a mother-to-be totally changes. She has to take great care to nurture the life inside. It’s her responsibility that her child gets right mix of every ingredient to be perfectly healthy.
It is said that a mother smiles to see you cry only once in her life i.e. at your birth. In our society there are many stigmas associated with birth, it’s our mother only who teaches us the difference of right from wrong. She protects us from the miseries of the world.
As we know that the duties and responsibilities of women are changing with time and so are the duties and responsibilities of mothers. She is no more just a wife or mother; she is more than that. She handles family along with her career. A mother has to prove herself at every step. She is doing all her usual tasks like cooking, cleaning, laundry, helping her kids with home work along with a demanding career.
Earlier working women used to take motherhood as a trouble and they delayed it as far as possible. But today’s mother knows the importance of family and knows how to balance the two. It’s not an easy job that’s why the mothers need to be admired for their untiring efforts.
The world has never been a safe place for women to roam around freely but today’s mother is all set to show her tougher side by facing the adversities with a strong heart and ever smiling face. In the process, she is also setting example for her children to become able and responsible.
Does she always succeed?
That’s not important as long as ‘Mom’ is the first word to come out of children’s mouth in any pain :).
Planet Earth is so diverse, and so is ‘human nature’- So variable; so unpredictable. But right now what I am talking about is, two kind of people- First kind is, who believe in ‘not’ creating any…
Kids are a necessary evil. If you don’t have them your life is empty; if you have them, you feel blessed but are definitely going to feel short of space soon ;).
Bringing up children is more of a challenge than blessing, especially when your little one goes to school. Mother has to start school all over again and with a totally different perspective. My journey has just begun but I am all set. I belong to that breed of moms who are all armoured for every kind of situation; who don’t fear facing challenges! Win or loss…doesn’t matter.
Folks, my experiments with motherhood are going well. I am often showered with plenty of delightful moments fortified with unforeseen surprises (as bonus), and it seems unfair if I don’t share them with you.
My ‘GlowinGal’ is a piece in millions (I know every parent thinks the same 😉 ). She lives on extremes, sometimes behaving so sensible, leaving me aghast, and at times, she doesn’t miss any chance to make my blood boil; she keeps me on my toes. BUT I want to admit, my life incredibly INTERESTING and way too EXCITING, because of her ! 🙂
I am not a huge sports fan but last month when the entire world was hoping and fighting for medals in RIO, I too occasionally froze in front of the TV. Seeing the enthusiasm and the sportsmanship of the participants, I thought we should also try and focus on one sport for our daughter. Who knows, One day she might win a Medal for our country! 😉 (I just thought…remember.), and the thought passed with a new task waiting in the list.
Yesterday, when I came back home, she cheerfully welcomed me glowing golden with a Medal around her neck. I was like, “what is this for?”
“Ma, I got first position in Summer Holiday Homework!” She chirped.
“Really!” (I thought, I wasn’t as good as the other mothers. Have I outperformed them?)
I guess YES, and here is the proof. 😉
Enough kidding! I am in competition with no one. I just want to be good enough. Her little achievements make me more confident every-time, and I feel like going a step further…But I also know that I am a human and possibly not a PERFECT one.
But I am doing great and I am happy with that! 🙂
