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..

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

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…
