How I celebrated Mother’s Day this time..

We just celebrated Mother’s Day. I am hoping we, mothers, had a blast of the day. I thought to write how I and my tot celebrated this Mother’s Day because this time it was different. 

A day before, on Saturday night, I requested my husband “NO More comments tomorrow, please”. He laughed and said, “How that is possible?..” I left it over him and slept peacefully looking forward to next day. The Mother’s Day.
I got up with the heed of juggling with the washing machine. But after lying on the bed of the next room, I said to myself “It’s Mother’s Day today. It’s for me. I should enjoy every minute of this day”. I postponed washing clothes and slept again. At 9 ‘clock, my mother called and I wished her. With my first line, she could comprehend that I was sleeping so next minute only she said “Sleep now. We’ll talk in evening.” And I closed my eyes again, aiming to sleep for some more time. However, with the hope to wish everyone on my FB page, I got up. It was another nice thing happened that my son was sleeping deep and this gave to a good ME time. I completed my kitchen chores and after daily prayers, I gave an enjoying span to myself with surfing internet. When my boy woke up, we did something super amazing.



Last week, we mother and son made two Mother’s Day card as per my boy’s craft activity. We gave those cards to two special mothers, our neighborhood Moms. To be honest, my son is half raised up by our kind neighbors. He is going to them since he was hardly 7 months old. One of them, Vandna ji used to take care of him like a mother. At times, she bathed him, fed him and made him sleep in my absence. She was my go-to person if I needed to go market or hospital. I used to give Vandna ji a diaper and my boy’s clothes and she happily took care of my little one for hours. My son equally loves Vandna ji and her family, especially her daughter. I also have so much respect for the family in my heart. My other neighbor, my flat owners, are also very close to my son. These days, as a routine, my son does his dinner with them. He loves Aunty’s food and like his family member, he straightaway asks Aunty to make Paratha for him. After reaching home from his daycare, my boy looks for a chance to peep inside their house and whenever he gets a green signal from Uncle, he immediately runs inside.

This Mother’s day, my son gave his hand made cards to these two lovely ladies. Both the ladies now have grown up kids and they didn’t have that excitement for Mother’s Day as my toddler had. So when my boy gave them cards with saying “Happy Mother’s Day”, I saw immense love in their eyes. Both were so touched by the gesture of my 3-year-old. I was so relieved and happy in my heart, that I was able to give some happiness to two of the best mothers.

Other than this, my husband took us, me and his son, for an outing. We ate at MacD and came back home with a happy meal toy. I made sure to cook a delicious Kheer for my husband as it’s his favorite. I also made my boy’s favorite Papad which he ate with so much of elation. A confession, I had decided to not cook this day but I couldn't resist myself making my husband’s and my son’s favorite things.

At evening, when I went to Vandna ji for giving a bowl of Kheer, I saw the card, perfectly placed in their living room’s cabinet. She told me that it’s great that my boy has an interest in art. She wished him a good life. I was a bit poignant then. 

I feel it was a perfect Mother’s Day. I made my boy happy. I also made my husband happy (okay not much, but a bit). But above all, I could make two lovely mothers happy who are simply awesome and motherly love my boy.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.


Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
