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".

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:
How you are p…

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…
