What friendship means

(Image from IStockphoto)
We have celebrated friendship day this Sunday. And thanks to my lovely friends Aradhana, Pushpa and Vartika for making this day meaning full after long time. I was not in touch with them since log time but God bless these smart phones, I got reconnected with them on WhatsApp. When I was going through many messages over WhatsApp, one incident clicked in my mind. We were in class 9th I guess and we all ( Aradhana, Akaksha , Pushpa and me) were in Bareilly.Girls remember ??? We participated in "Prantiya Khel -Kud". Pushpa our sports girl participated in many sports activities..race, high jump if I am recalling it correct. Also she got her name enrolled in "Art Competition". I am not able to get my neurons finding what was the theme for this competition but she practiced a paining I can still describe. It as having Tulsi Das sitting at river bank with something in his hand ( Pushpa don't get angry if my visualization is wrong :) ). Fine !! She is a creative personality and I appreciate it a lot. I was fan of her art skills from that time only. Sports I never liked though !! And girls let me disclose name of a friend who also had participated in art competition " Akriti Saksena" ( Am I wrong ??). Aradhana, please correct me if I am calling up wrong name. She was nice, cute girl with sweet voice.I must say she was also good in paintings. Now that incident which I was talking about.. After worst food of that school where we stayed, Akriti got sick. Loose Motions !! And our loving school with limited funds couldn't give enough medication to her. So she got real weak in a single day. By the way I still remember one thing. Akriti got "Dove" soap with her there. And after reaching Bareilly, we all went to washrooms for getting out hand washed and for other stuff. I forgot to carry my soap to washroom so Akriti offered her to me. That was first time I used "DOVE". What a soap, at-least better than my Lux soap ( I was bored off using that by that time). Continuing to Pushpa's story, she participated in her sports challenges and done very well. And talented girl Pushpa, secured prizes also. Now time and place of art competition got announced. Pushpa decided not to go for it and let Akriti contested it alone from our school. She took Akriti with her to the specific room where that competition was organized (as she was low because of loose motions) and didn't participate herself. I asked Pushpa why she is not participating.Her answer was real honest and above board. She said she had already secured few prizes and she waned to leave a place for Akriti not to contest against her. She said she was praying God for easement in Akriti's health and as she was little okay, she wanted to give her a chance to win that art competition. She actually didn't want to challenge her own friend, specially when she was not okay. That time also I was touched with Pushpa's thoughts and till date I really admire her good heart for others. This is real friendship. Sacrifice for friendship and love for a friend!!

You rock Pushpa..

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…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

Food Habits That I Am Going To Change This Year

This post is for New Year resolutions blog train. The blog train is hosted by Vartika, Alpana and Prerna,  sponsored by Pandora's Box and Recipe Dabba. My topic is Dr Feelgood - How are you planning to tweak your Food Habits for 2019 .  

We all desire to stay healthy and happy. Yes, happiness is very much connected to our health. But today's sedentary lifestyle has made us fall for quick meals and unhealthy choices. Over the course of time, these quick things give us side effects that rather don't go quick. Eventually, we fall prey to weight loss industry which asks for cutting sugar, salt, oils, carbs, dairy product and almost everything which is there in our kitchens since our grandparents time. We run after different diets (Ketogenic diet, Vegan diet, Raw food diet etc) and we even believe in schemes like having dinner before sunset, getting rid of rice, keeping a distance with fruits and avoiding any type of fat.

Is this way of keeping ourselves fit sustainable in the …
