#MothersDay The Unhappy Mothers Day! - A blog by Annu



Yes,you hear me right!Not this special day is special for everyone.Not this occasion brings happiness to everyone.

When everyone is sharing happiness of having a great mom or being a great mom on this Mother's Day,I would like to draw your attention to those who have not only never sensed such feeling but also have to be really strong on this day to keep themselves together.

I'm talking about the unfortunates who either don't have a mother they deserve or don't have her at all.While social media is all bloomed up with Happy Mother's Day messages,quotes and testimonials,if look around us we will find out there are people in society who :-
  • Were born orphans(Mother died during child birth)
  • Lost their mothers at a very young age
  • Lost their mothers due to her illness/accident/old age etc.
  • Are estranged from their mothers due to various issues like her mental illness ,one's own mental illness,family problems,misunderstandings,legal issues like divorce/custody,natural calamities etc.
  • Are physically connected but there are huge emotional wedges which cannot be worked out(like when mother is suffering from personality disorders like NPD,BPD,PTSD etc which makes a person extremely toxic and impossible to keep in touch with).
  • Other issues like mother being a criminal and serving in jail etc.

Not everyone is sleeping on the bed of roses as it seems on social network.There is huge social pressure to participate in the race that onsets on the days of such international festivals.Social networking occupies a very huge space of our daily lives,so much that it is almost impossible to keep moving without noticing its trends.

Mother is the most important person in one's life.The love that she can give to one's child is incomparable.  The comfort that a mother's lap the support that a mother's shoulder's can give cannot be found anywhere for any price. No extent of romantic or platonic love can replace motherly love.The trust that we can have in a real mother cannot be found anywhere.We all know this.Most of the fortunate ones are living lives with these luxuries of motherhood.But if someone says that they are deprived of it,then there is a very rare chance that they are lying.

As a society,instead of shaming them we should show them their support without being non judgemental and showing them compassion for they re lacking the basic human luxury that god granted to all living beings.Their pain is already too much to bear.We can definitely not fill the vacuum they have but giving them a listening ear on this day we can help them vent out.

We can be mothers to motherless.Motherhood is not just nine months of pregnancy rather its compassion for anyone who needs it.

Lets be compassionate for the one's going through "The Unhappy Mother's Day"

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.

The First Post Of #MyFriendAlexa 

Coming back to the title of this post, I know you might be awed to read it. Of course, there is no discrimination who can read the blog and who not. Our blog…

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:

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…
