I Miss You Daddy – Wishing You a Very Happy Father’s Day!
Father's Day

All my feelings were still inside me, wanting to come out and have a talk with him. I wanted to thank him for all the tough love, comfort, discipline, lessons, and everything that he had done for me so far.

But all of it now just remains in the heart, as does he. Whilst looking for a right time to have a talk, cancer took the charge and I lost.

Friendship Day 2016

Police was already on the station and things got taken care. I was still not stable, the girl who saved me was no one but a colleague from my office. I recalled she was the one who shared smile every time I made an eye contact with her, but I walked away showing zero gestures. As she kept her hand on my shoulder, “Are you okay?” I hugged her tightly and cried like a horror struck baby. She hugged me back and consoled me, asked me to be calm as everything was in control. After two days I reached office at time and there she was with a morning smile, I smiled back! I felt good, refreshing and my day went well than it did earlier.

Mother! We all know mother is the source of emotions and thus we are more connected to her, she deserves that love from us and every one of us. But what about Fathers? Why there’s an impeccable hype on mother’s day and in comparison almost nothing on Father’s day? We understand mother brought us to this world after surpassing immense pain, torture, life changes and what not? But is that less important, that there was always a man who stood by her side, woke up for nights during your mother’s labor pain? He was your father! He is no less than a Hero!

The reason is unsaid but this small video would definitely force you think, a change!

Motherhood – Living The Biggest Challenge Of life With A Smile!!
cover

Maa… Mummaa… Mommy… Aaai… Amma… So many names for a Mother!! For a woman, becoming a mother is the biggest challenge in life. A Task which even the most gruesome taskmaster might fail when endowed. Being a Mother is much more difficult than passing some top grade intellect exam. And trust me when I say it. It is as good as a new beginning to one’s life. There have been hundreds of instances when I would simply be awestruck by my mom’s abilities to manage different issues together, single handedly. And when asked how she managed, there would always be the same answer – You will learn when you become a Mother! And rightly said, I did learn multi-tasking only when I became a mother to my daughter, my love!

Dear Woman, It Is ‘OK’ To Say ‘NO’!
say no

Just recollect your childhood memories when toys were real characters for you, butterflies were your friends and rolling on grass was real fun. You were malleable but strong! You questioned with curiosity with those beautiful sparks in your eyes and also readily showed your discontent without any hesitation if you did not like anything. So, what happened to you when you grew up? Why did you stop questioning? Why you said ‘YES’ when you did not like certain thing done in a certain manner? Why you said ‘YES’ when deep down you knew that your self-respect is at stake?
