My birthday story

Image from http://www.istockphoto.com/
Yippee!! My birthday is on 1st Aug and it's a Saturday this time. No office, free time means more fun actually. I always love to celebrate my birthday since my childhood. During my school time, I used to call my school mates at home on my birthday. My mother used to cook delicious food ( Chole, Puri, Kheer etc.. ) for us. I used to get new cloths and that was all about celebrating a birthday. No concept of cake at all. Then my little sister started demanding for cake so cake cutting was allowed only on my sister’s birthday. After I got married, when my birthday came I was so excited and curious how my husband is going to surprise me. Mr N loves writing and he used to write his thoughts almost every day that time. Somehow I got to read what he was planning for my birthday. I was in seventh heaven. He had properly created a list of items which he wanted to do. And that list had things started from morning till night. I thought I was going to have a blast this birthday.

Finally it was 12 AM night. Mr N got cake and a card. He didn’t invited any of our friends because he wanted to celebrate it with only two of us. WOW!! I was on cloud nine and at the same time snoopy about the card. As I opened the card I thought to see it again. It was an “Anniversary Card” :) . He brought an anniversary card in place of a birthday card. I didn’t ask anything to him thinking he might feel bad. My birthday morning started with a rose. Again it surprised me (I knew it because I have already read his planning list). I went to my office and after reaching I realized something in my office bag. It was a color box. I love crafting so he gifted me a set of awesome color pencils. Everything was so well timed. After my office I reached home and pinned the card at pin board of our room. When he came from office and noticed that it was an anniversary card, he came to me laughing and told me that instead of getting birthday card, he brought anniversary card. I then accepted that I had noticed it that time only when he gave it to me. It was really funny!! Actually he was little apprehensive about getting birthday card for me so he asked for help to one of his married friend. They both went to the card shop and with his friend’s help Mr N started selecting card. He was so busy in reading the card matter of inside that he didn’t noticed what was written in front, “Anniversary Wishes”. Whole day went very well and with known surprises.

Whenever I remember this incident, it makes me smile and feel that “Love is blind” :) ..

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert. From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns.

Worshiping Krishna.. वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम्..

Shri Krishna Ashtakam is a worshiping prayer devoted to Lord  Krishna praising his powers and glory. Ashtakam means a prayer which contains eight hymns(slokas). Each hymn or verse is composed of four phrases, each describing one quality or great acts of Sri Krishna. And, each sloka is composed in two lines. It is believed that krishnashtakam lyrics possess great powers. Here is the English translation of this holy verse : वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम् । दॆवकी परमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥1॥ Vasudeva Sutam Devam Kansa Chanura Mardanam... Devaki Paramanandam Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum.. I pay my tribute to the teacher of this world Krishna, who is the son of Vasudev, who killed Kansa and Chanura and who is the source of great joy to Devaki. अतसी पुष्प सङ्काशं हार नूपुर शॊभितम् ।रत्न कङ्कण कॆयूरं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥ |2| Atasi Pushpa Sankasham Hara Nupura Shobhitam..Ratna Kankana Keyuram Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum... I salute to the teacher of this world Krishna,

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who.. I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold. ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life! I am not the wife wh
