My son was doing a worksheet about different religions of our country. Against all other religions columns were named ‘history‘ and ‘founders‘ but against Hinduism , it was ‘Hindu mythology’ and the founder column was missing for the same. You can precisely find the history and founders of all religions but just because this religion is the oldest of all other, and its complete details are destroyed by the incoming invaders and remains are nowhere taught to the coming generat
It is said , your learn something new each time you read a good text. True indeed. I was reading the Cinderella Story to my daughter, one more time. She interrupted me in between while I was illustrating the torture of Cinderella’s step mom and step sisters. “Mumma, why did she wait for the Prince to come and why didn’t she take any action against the injustice on her own ?
What if she could never make it to the party ?
What if the Prince could never find the real owner of th

Tantrums have recently become an evolved way of communication by kids. Why I am saying evolved is because when you find some better and effective tool in your present situation, you seem to have evolved it. May be this form of communication have served their purpose better. Or maybe there is something else troubling the child and he is not able to communicate. What it could be and how can we help, not only the child but ourself. To know the answers, check out- From Monkeying
Along with the birth of your child, you too are re-born as a parent. Raising / parenting a child is so simple and natural. So, why so much fuss about it? Is it really that simple? To parent a child is not just becoming a parent. Parenting is the energy you exchange between you and your child and this energy is directly dependent on what you share amongst your other relations. Yes, parenting is not a secluded relationship but works in close harmony with all your relationships.
How often do we say things like ‘Take Care’ , ‘Keep in touch’, ‘Call u back’ , ‘Miss you’ ? How often do we actually mean it ? Even the receiving end reciprocates immediately by saying ‘ You too’. Even when we share (or exploit our Data limit) with Good Morning messages / GIFs do we really wish the other person to have a ‘good’ morning. We have been so accustomed to this routine that now we don’t even realise that we are lying and just being fake. Words transfer from one pers
Lesson #1 First and foremost when he doesn’t turn up , he teaches me the lesson – Nothing is Permanent. This ensures I do not get overdependent on anything and It helps me brush my ‘hunt for survival’ skills. Lesson #2 Second, when I start looking for other options , I am often at the mercy of these other driver’s sweet will whether to drop me at my destination or choose to move forward on their way. This teaches me- To face Rejection. Things won’t always turn up the way we d
Kaida … Kaida ..Akhir fayda.. (What’s the use of so many rules ?) This song has been my personal favourite from my childhood days. Not only for the reason of great performances by the players on camera and behind the camera, involved, but more because of that imaginary world where this song takes me. You can enjoy the same too. Blue sun , Moon on ground laiden with Ice cream ..Toffees on plants and ladoos on trees .. I had always enjoyed it listening . However, when I recentl
Via Daily Prompt Suddenly During last month I had tried to respond to daily post almost on regular basis but it soon, on its own started to fade. Suddenly, today I purposely searched for today’s prompt to write few lines . What we see as something happening suddenly, does it really happen all of a sudden ? Like it was a not just at this moment but I was missing responding to these prompts that led me here today. The moment we notice the flower bud on the plant of our garden o

During the English class,my son was being taught about contradictory statements. He learnt that how contradicting scenarios are sometimes blended in a sentence. When teacher prompted the kids to share their understanding with example, my son raised his hand and shared . Mam, contradiction is what Mumma says to me in morning.She says “Hurry up , hurry up” when I am getting ready for school and when in that hush I spill my cereals over my shirt , she says “ why can’t you slow d
My son yesterday , while doing his homework , casually told that 1 is his favourite number . Now , people rate numbers as lucky / unlucky but how can any number be favourite? I counter questioned him further , “why so ?” He said , one is the number of the winner. Everyone wants to be number one . I probed him further, “but it is the least number. ” ” but Mumma, whatever number one has, he always want one more !” And I was speechless. How true na ! No matter how much we get, w
The aunts play a very important role in Indian Household. Yes ! the Aunts – the elder ladies of the extended family. The mami jis and the tayi jis . I remember, my mother used to consult them before making any important decision regarding alliance or ceremonies etc. After marriage I saw my mother in law, too in the similar role . That is very rightful also, as who else can guide us better than our elders. However, for the todays’ smart generation, this vital task has also bee
My mom, while on vacations, always asked us to keep things intact . Papa had his wallet , watch , pen put on the bedside table in the hotel room. “Why are you keeping them like we would be staying here for always . Keep things packed.” My parents used to prefer the hotel room without TV ( yes !! They had and rated it separately at that time ) as they opinioned that being whole day outside why would we need to watch TV when back to room ? “We are just to stay for a night or tw
Via daily prompt loophole When I read and pondered over today’s prompt – LoopHole, I felt the word has been misjudged and ill treated. As per the dictionary meaning, loophole means a flaw or inadequacy . While if you see this word deeply it’s a hole in the loop. When stuck inside a loop we always look for a way out. A means to escape or break that loop. Why such a escape root is interpreted as a flaw? This is same as what ‘Abhimanyu‘ was looking for, while fighting against th
Via daily prompt –Brilliant It’s clearly written on the entrance door, when you enter into the cabin. Yes !! push .. Push away your fellow coworkers ..your ethics .. your values . But then don’t be surprised if in this process, one also get pushed apart by stress , negativity, anger, hatred and frustration. Sad but true – Newton’s third law works here too . No , no !! I am not saying that all corporates are unethical. There is another side of the door that says ‘Pull‘. To Pul
‘We don’t have time for all this’ , replied my friends , while I was advocating the need , not benefits, of meditation in our daily routine. ‘We have such a hectic schedule with job, kids , home .. so many things to take care of . We are already struggling to manage all these . How can we even think about it ? Please don’t preach us any more.’ But I chose to persuade further. ‘Do you get time to go to parlour for your regular upkeep ? It’s the same . It’s for the upkeep of ou
