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?

      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:

      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…
