“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.

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…
