#MothersDay - A message from Deepika

Mummaa.. is the word I hear while getting daily chores done with the help of my maid. My little one wakes up from his afternoon sleep and as a ritual, he should see my face when he wakes up or else he becomes cranky. Yes, I m a mother of my 8 months old son.I took a break from my work to take care of him as I was not willing to leave him in daycare until he turns a year old.



Now I get ample of time to take care of my baby and enjoy his milestones. Since the day I became a mother I suddenly felt so much love and respect for MY Mother. How much pain she bore to bring me into this world! How she must have felt on becoming a mother (I am her eldest child)! Coincidentally I and my mother share the same date for enjoying this great feeling of motherhood (yeah..! I and my son have the same birth date)  

And day by day as I see my little one growing and demanding for his needs, I wonder how my mother managed taking care of her in-laws, husband and her 4 children (my 2 sisters and a brother) at the same time without any house help.




Seriously, hats off to her for all hard work and determination she put in. Despite being not so educated herself, she made sure her kids complete their higher studies with good marks. She always encouraged and helped us all by herself, ALONE. ALONE because my father met with an accident and left us when I was in 8th standard. 

But she continued doing the best for her kids. She is my hero in life and I will look up to her for my problems.

 I love you MOM to the moon and back..

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…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

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…
