Lets Empower Women by minding our own business!!

Being a women is liberating! We are empowered with so many great things by nature but somewhere during our journey of life, we forget our value as there are a few of our own breed pulling us down, demeaning our existence and questioning our freedom to choose—– freedom to choose how we live, what we should work as, how much we should work, how we should look, what we should wear and even how much we should EXPRESS!!!!! Comeon! We can do better than that right???

This women’s day, let’s pledge to empower our own breed by Minding our own business!! This way we sure are liberating our own-precious-self in it’s true meaning. Let’s be kind to the women of our family, our circle of friends and a community as a whole and see the difference!

Men of our society (atleast alot of them 😉 ) are really concerning and working hard to make us happy. At times, our happiness and success drives them. Let’s Be Good to everyone around!

Happy Our’s Day ladies! Happy Women’s day gals!

We know we are awesome, lets show this to the world too 🙂 let’s rock the world

“Happy Independence Day” ….. On a Republic Morning!

5:00am screamed her alarm clock! “Zzzzzzz it’s time to wake up already??” screamed back her mind!

Lethargy swept her body and mind, but since kids had school she couldn’t delay her laziness. “Oh today is going to be a relaxed holiday for family. No two tiffins today, no pre-lunch preps for kids, just send the kids for flag hoisting and back. Hurray ….screamed her mind especially no working around the clock.” For a housewife, time stops when her family has a holiday.

She begins her day like most of us do! Yes she checked her phone and broadcasted a nice little message that said, “Happy Independence Day”, switched on her WiFi before sending the message. Sent! As her phone begins to receive the messages, she realised that it wasn’t an Independence Day, it was a Republic Day! She felt like a school kid confused between two significant days when she memorised what 15th August and 26th January stands for. Oh how embarassing! What must others think of her, whirled her mind.

Just that moment, her phone beeps. She apparently received a reply from someone she sent the blundered message to…. It was embarassing to even check the reply. “Hope no one else replies!” She thought. She opens the message, it was a reply from her hubby (who now she realised wasn’t in bed with her), “Honey Happy Independence Day! Please sleep and worry not about any home chores. Thank you for working round the clock for us but for today, your clock is retired and so should you. I love you baby

P.S. you can delete the broadcasted messages with the current feature in the messaging app so no one else finds this out 😉 😀 ” She dint have words to utter, she went in the kitchen and kissed his hubby like she did on her wedding day as it felt they just renewed their vows. Beautiful moment!

So why did she confuse the days? For a home maker, it doesn’t matter whats the reason of the holiday, it’s the joy that she doesn’t have to follow the clock is most comforting!

So she blundered with a barrage of messages of Happy Independence Day on a Republic morning!!!

Well well Oh!well

Shakespeare says, “All’s well that ends well”  how true! When troubles are over, all we end up saying is, ” well well oh well! All is well that ends well”

I would like to add a bit to it. I feel, ” All is certainly gona be well if you BEGIN well” So lets begin well and proclaim great things in our lives!

A Night before they leave

As I sit here, wrapping up my conversations with my Mummy Papa…. A day prior to their departure back home, my mind travels back and forth. Feeling sad as they are going home is obvious, but that urge to stay with them just a moment more, never cease to exist. How a daughter wishes that her parents could stay with her forever and for always.

I plan to wake up really really early tomorrow so I don’t miss out on the morning tea with them. Oh! I won’t need the alarm tomorrow. Heart filled with immense grief, would I sleep??

Cooking for my family is a custom. How I wish I could cook for my Papa everyday, make my Mummy taste those awesome dishes and tell her, ” Maa, I have learnt it all from you!”

I know they too are hiding their tears. It’s most difficult for a father to say good bye to her daughter. Papa keeps saying, “we will come back soon….for more days” using every possible words to mellow the effect of their departure on me and himself. Mom tries to comfort me as much as possible, that’s her way of showing that she misses me already!

It’s a night before my Mummy Papa leave…. And all I can think of is… I need a moment more with them ….just a MOMENT more!!

Kajal Dharod ‘s All About Christmas

Christmas time is up. Feeling festive already 🙂 Christmas for me has changed as I have grown up each moment. Earlier it was Gifts gifts and just gifts 🙂 But now being a mommy, I see Christmas differently! It’s more of imparting the significance, planning a bash for the kids and making sure they make memories, I may not live forever, the memories will! 

Was looking for something that will engage my kids but not harm really like a screen time does. And I found just that…. Kajal Dharod’s “ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS” by #Vitamin Simple. It would be incorrect to call it a book or even an activity book. With Nativity Story, Santa Clause Interview, over 400 stickers, colouring and craft activities, I would tag this as an unparallel CHRISTMAS EXPERIENCE. 

So my son was unwell. And Kajal’s #All about Christmas really helped him utilize his time optimally. He dint want screentime, which for a Mommy of hyperactive boys is a blessing. And it covers the age group of 3-9 years. 

The book comenses with Nativity story, creatively imparts information about Saint Nicholas fondly known as Santa Claus ( it helps mommies too, helps us improve our bedtime stories) with stickers spread in the sheets with extra ones incase kids tear or miss one. So far, I have not seen any book who fulfills the festivity, creativity and time Management amongst kids at this scale.

Further the quality of the stickers is amazing and easy to use. So don’t wonder what to do this Christmas Vacation and Order the book Right away here: https://yourlearningcapsules.com/allaboutchristmas

Decoding Ancient Scriptures, Texts and Proverbs…. What they really wanted to convey! part 1

The blog is about decoding Ancient Scriptures, Texts and Proverbs. Although we may never know what Past really wanted to convey, we can add 2 + 2 and browse through the wonderful legacies left behind for us in the form of Veda, Purans, Upnishads, Maha kavyas and hearsay stories carried forward by our ancestors. 

It will be a several part series where we will discuss only few points in one post.

Lets begin from the beginning. Brahma! 

The origins of the Lord which is one of the TRIMURTI are undefined. He is often termed as the ULTIMATE REALITY (Brahman). Pandits are often termed as Brahmin. Their mention is seen several times in Vedic Scripts. We can safely presume Him to be a Vedic God.

Despite being such an important aspect of evolution, how many of us worship Him? There too is a reason which we will discuss in the next post.

Big bang never created Universe, may be earth or even solar system but certainly not the entire Universe or Multi -verse. It always existed and will continue to exist. Vedic Scripts also refer to Parallel realities. As per calculations, one day of Brahma equals 4320 million years. This span is called a Kalpa. Each Kalpa is further divided into Chaturyugs (4 yugs). Naming them is easy… First one is Krita yug or Satya yug. Second is Treta, making third Dvapar and fourth Kali yug. Due to different calculation systems, the starting point of any yug is not clear in our scripts but this blog is an effort to join the dots, research the past and arrive at the Primeval Truth. There is a clear mention in Mahabharat about the beginning of Kaliyug. Which makes Krishna’s demise the end of Dvapar you. Approximately, 14 years after Krishna’s death in his earthly form, the Kaliyug commensed. According to a researcher Ludo Rocher, the total of all yugs is somewhere close to 4320000 years. 

Watch out this space and blog for more on Mahabharat, Yugs, Gita and Manvantaras.
