How we think before and after becoming a Mother..

After we become mother, our thought process changes a lot. You agree? Along with waistlines, sleep patterns and patience level, the biggest thing that changes in ourselves, is our Minds. Now what we eat, what we do and what we say, depend upon our mother side to a great extent.
Here are some of the examples that show how a common woman thinks before and after having kids :
  • While shopping cloths:
    Before : I need this dress in light color. This will go best with my nude shoes. The size looks perfect for me. 
    After : I need this dress in Black. And it would have been good if this has option of elastic waist. I need to try it,I am not sure what's my size these days.
    • Inside a footwear shop:
    Before : Oh beautiful! I need those wedges. I would also buy those pencil heels. I would look slimmer in these.
    After : This store really has a bad collection of flip-flops. And they don't have colors in flats. Who buys those 4 inches in multi-color?
    • Finding a strange substance over bath towel:
    Before : This must be make-up. But I should not use it.
    After : Is that poo? Vomit? Permanent marker? For now I would use the other side of it, that looks clean.
    • Hearing a baby crying in public:

      Before : What type of mother she is? She can't calm down her baby !
      After : Poor mother!
      • Seeing a toddler wailing in a toy shop
      Before : Parents should teach kids how to behave in public area.
      After : Thank goodness it's not me!
        • In a dinner party:
      Before : I love salads. You know it's healthy and fresh. 
      After : God I am so hungry, when this dinner will start ? Till then let me finish this mac and cheese from my son's plate.
      • Call for a kitty :
      Before : It would be fun to go . "Sure I would love to come!"
      After : Hmm.. I don't have any good fit dress. And it would take almost an hour to dress up kids and their diaper bags. "Let's see If I can come."
      • Planning a family outing :
      Before : Let's go to that xyz restaurant. The ambiance is so romantic there.  
      After : Mac'D would be best. We'll have any xyz burger. And if you still feel hungry, I'll cook khichdi back home. 
      • About motherhood:
      Before : I have heard it's hard. But I don't think it's THAT hard.
      After : It's hard and even harder. People say it would get better with time but I don't think it'll get easier. 
      Still we all love being a Mother, isn't it?

      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…
