You can do this Mothers

To all Mothers..
How many times in a day you think that you can't do a certain thing but you find yourself doing that? As a mother, we all presume many things impossible at the very first moment but then we get ourselves indulge into it somehow. No matter if that work is hard or easy, sad or enjoying, we do it.. even after thinking that we can't do this. Here are some of things we, mother think we can't do but we actually do in our lives:
1. "I can't carry this" says the woman before conceiving her baby and thinking it's the biggest responsibility of the world. But later SHE carries this responsibility with full of her heart and becomes the life-line of her kids.
2. "I can't face this" says the pregnant woman, hearing shouting and crying of other woman in labour. But SHE faces it when her time comes and encourages other mothers to stand up to it with strong will power.
3. "I can't do this anymore" says the would-be mother suffering painful contractions inside the labour room. But SHE welcomes her babies in this world bearing that intense pain and she loves them the most.
4. "I don't think I can do this" says the woman leaving her baby as she goes back to work. But SHE goes to office every day and tries to prove herself as the best mother with balancing work and family.
5. "I can't deal with it" says the mother of the defiant toddler or teenager dealing with rigid tantrums. But SHE loves her kids’ unconditionally in-spite they give her tough time to face.
6. "I don't think I can see this" says the mother who watches her baby drive off for the first time without her. But SHE develops confidence over her baby and encourages him/her with the biggest smile of the world.
7. "I can't live this way” says the mother who helps her baby send off the application for the college which is far away from her place. But SHE sends her baby out for studies and wish for his/her brightest future.
8. "I don't think I can do this" says the mother who takes a look at the proposal photograph of her daughter. But SHE dreams about the wonderful married life of her daughter and let this separation happen after her daughter got married.
9. "I don't think I can see this" says the mother who gives her son to his new bride. But SHE accepts this new relationship of her son's life and retires from the job of worrying about what his son would eat/wear any other day.
10. And "I don't think I can do this" says the woman who gives her child up for adoption. But SHE accepts this parting for the good of her child's life and tries to present herself as the toughest woman of the earth. 
I hope you agree with me that just when we, mothers, thought we couldn't, just when we were sure that there was no way we ever could, we discover that we had it and we did it. Because we have blessing of being MOTHERS. There are many other such moments when a mother thinks she can't this or that but her "I don't think I can do this" always has a hidden “But I will do this" appended.
So just when you are sure that you can't handle it, that it's too tough for you, that you're not strong enough or equipped to face it, remember that you were never designed to do it alone. You have all those women with you who are mothers and have faced such spells. You would find them saying collectively "Go ahead…You can do this".

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 …
