Judge-Mental hai kya?

And we all do this, we judge people at the drop of the hat, we judge them on how they dress, how they talk….we don’t spare them until we ourselves get bitten by the bug of being judged! Read my poem and find out if you ever have been the victim or are you too judgmental I am baffled by the labels put on me,Mommies shaming mommies,Strangers rolling their eyes at me,Yes, my little one threw himself on the floor,For the

APPRECIATING SPORTSMANSHIP!

Virat Kohli is one of the most successful batsmen in the cricketing history. He has broken numerous records and has led India to victory single-handedly many times. I appreciate and admire him for many reasons and his achievements are hugely inspiring. He is the first batsman to score 20,000 international runs in a decade. He is the first batsman to win Sir Garfield Sobers (ICC best player of the year) twice in a row. He holds the record for the

BE THE GO-TO PARENT

I chanced upon, a leading actor’s birthday post for his teen son and I quite liked what it stated. In a nutshell, A dad must be the go-to person for kids instead of thinking “Oh my God! My dad is going to kill me!”. I believe that both parents should be approachable. And we must make the effort to build the rapport. It’s not easy. As a parent you have to strike a balance between being a parent and a

There is a saying that your Attitude determines your altitude. It holds true for me in all its forms, whether personal or professional, from cooking to creative writing! The driving force that keeps us moving on the path of growth is our attitude towards the rejections that comes our way. I have my own share of rejections and failures. And they actually taught me a lot, while helping me grow into a more evolved person! Here, goes few of my

SECOND INNINGS!

Starting this week, I began school… As a student… …Again! At forty-two!! I have been told that its brave and that I am blessed.

WHEN I FAT SHAMED MY KID WITHOUT EVEN REALISING IT

“Can I have one more parantha mumma?” Reyan asked me casually.“Reyan, you must control your hunger. Look at yourself, you are getting overweight,” pat came my reply. “Mumma, give me mango shake, I am feeling so thirsty and hungry,” he asked me the other day. “I think you should have some lemonade rather than milkshake, you are getting fat” I showed my concern. “Mom, how am I looking in this new shirt?” Reyan’s excitement was obvious.“Reyan, you need to lose

BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

We humans are really strange creatures.  When we have something, we generally don’t cherish it, but once it’s gone, we lament about it: Cherish few things when they are.  Like: The nonstop, innocent questions and chatter of a toddler, it never comes back. First few years of married life and the innocence and ignorance, it never comes back. The toothless grin and gurgles of a baby, it never comes back. Parents hoping that their daughter gets married soon.  Cherish her,

ENRICHING THE SOIL OF COMPASSION

Compassion is crucial. Every person has his or her own understanding about compassion. For me it is not only caring and showing concern for the plight of others, but acting to the best of my capability to support them. From birth to death itself, we all wish for happiness without any suffering in our lives. But with every passing day, it is becoming one of the hardest tasks for human beings to achieve. To begin with, happiness is not only
