If you are a mother, do you assume yourself beautiful?

What makes you beautiful as a Mother? I am not talking about your beauty from any other's perspective. I am asking what your heart thinks about it. Let's take examples of mothers you know personally. What makes them so amazing? Is their beauty about how they physically look OR how they look at their kids? You might not assume yourself graceful but fact is You Are. Sometimes we tend to ignore what little things we do everyday that make big changes in life. We, mothers, often consider ourselves insignificant because we always look upon our failures. But believe me, mothers are running this whole universe. 
No language can express the power, the beauty and the majesty of a mother's love..
A mother is beautiful when she confronts her baby in middle of night..
She is beautiful when she reads for her kids even being badly tired..
She is even beautiful when she kissed scrapped knees..
Great is how she loves her kids unconditionally..
Wonder is how she lifts them up and stand by them..
Magic is how she can understand unspoken words..
Mothers are beautiful because of their beautiful acts..
When she cleans, cooks and care for family selflessly..
When she listens to crying babies without getting frustrated..
When she eats leftover food of her baby's plate without feeling low..   
When she stays up late in night to make sure kids can go school timely next morning..
When she keeps on ignoring doctor visit for herself whereas a single cut on her kid's hand can make her cry..
And Beautiful mothers can be found every where..
They are like silent saints staying with us at home..
They are soldiers working to make our world more beautiful place..
They are social workers fighting for the rights of their kids..
They work hard to protect families around them even if they don't have their own kids and families..
So mothers, next time when you look into the mirror, notice few things instead of dark circles and not-so-fair face. Instead of wrinkles, see the experience you gain with time. Instead of noticing extra kilos, observe the strength you have now. Instead of inspecting dark circles under your eyes, think about the immense love your kids give you. Instead of spotting burned hands and callused feet, feel happy that you can work harder. And instead of seeing your failures, see how much you are blessed. We all may not see this inner beauty in ourselves and feel inadequate, so from now onward whenever you see any mother passing near to you, smile.. Even go to her and talk about her kids and family. Ask how she is doing health wise. When you see a new mother rocking her baby, give her the encouragement she needs. When you note a mother handling her tricky toddler, go offer help. Because a little love goes long way.. Every day mothers are doing beautiful things around the world. So from this Mother's day celebrate a Mother's true beauty and her heroism every day..
Ritualize Every day as Mother's day..

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…

K For Kalpasi - An Unknown Treasure

Good food is really a blessing, isn't it? And as I am talking about those who really go into making an average food to finger licking, I realized our spices undoubtedly do magic with the everyday food. Apart from the basic ingredients and a well-known, trusted recipe, a play of spices and herbs can really lift up a preparation. Every region in India uses spices to make their local food extraordinary. It is only a matter of spices that change the taste of the same Shambhar in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and in north India. We all make Chole but the game of spices do something to what we relish as famous Panjabi Chole.  It is all about the little nuances that go into creating a dish from ordinary to exceptional.

A handful of spices always remain in our kitchens and we know their unique flavors. However, there are a number of spices are little unheard-of. While these form an essential part of a few local innate cuisines in some part of India, the rest of India does not know much about them. O…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

This post is for #BharatKaZaika is a blogging event conducted by #BlogBoosterIndia. 

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage

You see, In our country, there is a tradition of respecting and celebrating food. The spirit of classical Indian civilization guided that primary duty of the king is to ensure that none within his domain suffers from hunger. Hence the king ensured that people…
