“A man is what his mother makes him” Do you agree?


This mothers’ day, there have been a lot talks about mothers and motherhood. Meanwhile, a start plus promo clip caught the attention and we noticed how a mother made his son learn how to care and respect women. (Watch the video at the end)

If you have not watched it, let me tell you in this video a cute boy of 5 or 6 is sitting on the first seat in a bus while there comes a little girl with her mother. The mother of the boy vacates her seat to accommodate them and the little boy follows her mother by letting his seat to the famine duo. The clip tells us what and how much boys learn from their mothers when it comes to their way of treating another female in their lives. 

There was another picture message I noted a few years back in which a boy asks his mother how he can find the best women for himself. At this, his mother replies, “instead of focusing on selection of best women, focus on being the best man.”

We know that family is the first school for a child. For a boy, his mother is the first women he gets to know and understand. It is the mother who instil the qualities, like caring and respecting a woman, in a boy. As a child, a boy notes how a woman puts deep efforts in taking care of others in the family, how much she works at home and outside the home, how much she loves and how much she sacrifices for the sake of her family. Hence, the entire place of women in a family is well understood by a boy as long as he grows up into a lad. This really has a deep impact on a boy’s attitude and perception towards women. 

It is the mother who can make her boy understand the most sensitive questions of his life such as, what women like and how to become the dream man of a woman. A mother instils emotions in a boy who is otherwise meant to be strong and least emotional. Most boys don’t express their emotions as openly as women do since they bear the responsibility of being stronger gender in the world. However, men can easily express emotions before their mother; they can cry, they can complain, they can express their fear and can also express their love before their mother without being shy about this. 

Thus, for a sustainable society that is free from disguise against women, we really need responsible mothers of boys as they have a key role in not only making them a successful man but also in making them a responsible loving a and caring partner.

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!
I am not the wife who..
I am not the wife who has her biological…

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…

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…
