You dont have to be sorry

Dear Mothers
Don't feel sorry..
Few days back you were crying, locking yourself in bathroom, because your son had broken your guest's cell phone which was a costly one. You cried when your daughter had an accident even being home. All this happened in your presence and you felt guilty for this. You scolded your kids because they were screaming all day after these things happened. But when you came out of bathroom you hugged your son with smile on your face and you said you were sorry for scolding him. You said sorry to your daughter for not being able to save that hurting move.
You don't have to be sorry.
Then there was the day when you were on leave. You had promised kids an outing. But suddenly some urgent office work came and you where on phone whole day. You even couldn't see what they were doing all day. But when you tucked your kids at night, you told them you were sorry you were on the phone so much.
You don't have to be sorry.
When some day you were busy in all cleaning stuff and your little one was chasing you all around to be taken, you ignored your baby. You were even not allowing your daughter to enter in that room where you were cleaning roofs. But when all cleaning got done, you picked your baby up and cuddled her on the couch for a minute before she jumped off your lap. With you face you said sorry to your baby for ignoring her even for a single minute.
You don't have to be sorry.
Remember the day you yelled really loudly at your son? So loud that it scared him and he started crying? And he was confused because he usually wanted you when he was scared, but you were the person who scared him, and he didn't know what to do? Your face softened right away, and you picked him up and promised never to make that sound again.
You don't have to be sorry.
You don't have to be sorry that you didn't make dinner at some day. You tricked your kids with saying that dinner that day was a picnic and you made them eat sandwiches. You were in tears because of not being able to cook homemade food.
You don't have to be sorry.
You don't have to be sorry that you were too tired and you didn't want to read a third story, or that you got frustrated because your toddler kept crawling out of bed. You were dozing with each line of story. But when he slept you felt sorry for not reading story for him.
You don't have to be sorry.
We all face bad times and we always teach our kids that it's OK to have bad days. But we forget to apply this to ourselves. Your kids may not be saying thank you every day but they don't judge you for sure when you fail. Your hugs and kisses do magic when they are hurt. Your tricks make them giggle even they are feeling bad. You are the one with whom they want to be all the time in-spite of moments when you scold them. You may not be perfect, but you are the perfect mommy for them. So you don't have to be sorry ever!

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 …
