I am not the woman who..

I am not the wife who..
I am not the wife who has her biological clock set to get up early before any one gets up, I rely for my phone's alarm..
I am not the wife who cooks from scratch everyday for family, I have a cook at home for helping me in that..
I am not the wife who is good in decorating home, I can live with some mess..
I am not the wife who looks attractive all the time, I am lazy in managing myself...
I am not the wife who has sharp memory to remember buying all grocery items same time, I request my husband to get something everyday..
I am not the wife who loves watching TV, I prefer listening old songs on radio..
I am not the wife who does lovely talks everyday with husband, I am a silent thinker..
And I am not the wife who thinks from heart, I am in habit of finding logic in everything...
BUT I am a devoted wife who gives value to relationships and people of her life. I am the wife who loves to cook what my husband likes on weekends. I am also the wife who watches same movie repeatedly because my husband likes to watch that. I am the wife who wants to help my husband in whatever way I can even if we argue frequently. I am a person who believes in concept of marriage and wants to be a strong life partner of my husband rather than only a married woman. 
I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who suggests other mothers 'only breast feed' for their babies.. my baby is formula fed..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was 2 and half month old..
I am not the mother who has given only home-made baby food to her baby, I tried many ready-made ones..
I am not the mother who makes sure her baby's outfits are flawless, I face people complaining for baby's old cloths..
I am not the mother who manages detailed Todos for parenting tasks, I get late in going for immunizations and in ordering diapers..
I am not the mother who keeps house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and eatables..
I am not the mother who spends most of day with her baby, I go for work and at times take help from neighbors in keeping my baby entertained..
I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and money minded..
BUT I am a doting mother who tries to priorities family and work every other minute. I am also the mother who scrolls to TV channels where ads are playing because my baby enjoys watching advertisements. I am the mother who loves to notice my son playing even if he is messing up with food. I am the mother whose heart is full of love for her kid and who loves her kid unconditionally even if he does things that drive me crazy. 
I may not have all of it (or even a little of it) together in my life..
But one thing I can say is that I will always be there with my husband and my son..
Not because I felt obligated to be or I thought it is the right thing to do..
But because there is no place in the world I would rather be..


I may not be perfect but I am confident about my true feelings for my family..

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:

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.

The First Post Of #MyFriendAlexa 

Coming back to the title of this post, I know you might be awed to read it. Of course, there is no discrimination who can read the blog and who not. Our blog…

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…
