Life is beautiful yet I want little more..

Life is beautiful that I'm a ‘girl’, who is independent and confident,
                          Still I wish I was a boy so that my parents could have avoided people commenting on "no boy" topic..
Life is beautiful that I'm educated and living in a big city,
                         Yet I want to live in any village, far away from the hassles of fast life and close to nature..
Life is beautiful that I got a perfect husband,                      
                         Still I wish I would have met him earlier so that I could have added few more years of togetherness..        
Life is beautiful that looks wise I'm okay..
                        Yet I like improving my beauty with cosmetics and little make-up..
Life is beautiful that I'm married and settled..
                         Still I want to be a little girl who plays with amma and papa..    
Life is beautiful that I'm a working woman..
                         Yet I want to stay at home, purposely, and spend more time with my son..
Life is beautiful that I'm free to enjoy my independence,
                          Still I love to tease my husband that he doesn't take me to shopping..
Life is beautiful that my house is sufficient for my family,
                          Yet I wish a bigger house where everything is decorated by me..
Life is beautiful that my office is an employee friendly organization..
                         Still I wish to enjoy a whole month of laziness being home and not getting up early..
Life is beautiful that I'm blessed with a boy..
                        Yet I love shopping cute colorful frocks and hair clips..
Life is beautiful that I'm earning well..
                        Still I wish to add more numbers in my salary account..
Life is beautiful that I have supportive in-laws..
                        Yet I want a bit more liberation from them..
Life is beautiful that I have best friends in my life..
                       Still I want to make more friends who are of my type..
Life is beautiful that I have everything for a happy living..
                       Yet I want more smiles and contentment for my family..
Woman In Me has everything.. Still I want little more from life..

  1. Every word seems so much like what I would want to do too..I guess that's where a mom is needed to understand another one.

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…

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!
I am not the wife who..
I am not the wife who has her biological…

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…
