FREEDOM : By Aradhana

FREEDOM , Freedom means liberation from external controls
We can act and think according to our will. We are free to pray any God, whom we believe. We can dance on the roads in marriages of our friends, we are free to eat anything we like to eat. We are free to choose our clothes, Indian or western or burkha. We can choose whatever job we want to do. We can walk in the rain. We can go anywhere in our county using any transport. we can shop own or sell anything. we can educate ourself or our children from any institute. we can go movies, markets restaurants with anyone. Every day we watch different kinds of news, media is independent to show any news on tv. Why. Because we are living in free country, India is a free country. All these things are seeming very small, but ask a prisoner the importance of all these things. Ask a caged bird what freedom is.
Our forefathers had fought for this freedom and sacrificed their lives for this freedom. India had been ruled by Mughals and British for many years before we got the freedom. In my childhood, I have heard many stories from my grandmother of that age. Farmers had to pay good amount of their earning to the rulers. British officers use to make Indians as their servants. Girls were not allowed to go outside. Now a days, we are free to live our lives our own way.
Being free is a great feeling but I have seen people are spoiling it by taking it for granted.
With Freedom comes responsibility and to sustain this freedom, the most important thing is discipline. Freedom means no external controls. But we require to maintain self-discipline in order to make this freedom worth.
Yes we have freedom to eat anything, but what if everybody throw the leftovers over roads and public places. We are free to be educated and learn things, but what if people start to write their messages on public places like boundaries and trees of a park or roadside hoardings.
Being free is good but everybody should take responsibility of being a citizen of a free country. We should make our country clean and corruption less. We should follow rules and regulations of society and we should follow rules of roads also. We should help the less privileged peoples.
I want to pay my respect to our soldiers, who are continuously monitoring our borders and lands, without any fear of their lives. We are enjoying here freely, only because they are fighting there for us.

We are free to express our feeling here, only because we are living in a free country. We should respect this freedom and we should take care of it for the next generations.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

#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 who..

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. And I…
