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..

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 …
