Happy Birthday Vibhu & A Contest for readers

Hi all,

The most memorable day of my life is here again. Yes, it's my son's birthday on coming Saturday, 9th of September. I am busy in planning and making this day special for my 3-year-old. As a mother, I want to do so many things on his birthday. But you know, we all end up following a negotiated plan which suits every in the family. So considering my husband, the guests and the birthday boy, here is my birthday plan :

1. Celebration at home: Last two years, we celebrated my son's birthday in a near by hotel with taking a party hall for 4-5 hours. But this time I am going to arrange everything at home. Although my flat is quite small. But you know the dialog "Dil Me Jagah Honi chahiye.." and I have that so much. So this time party at home.

2. Smaller Cake: This time we have cut down our guest list. So only 2 KG cake and some sweets from a famous East Delhi sweet shop. The theme of cake is "Jungle Book". So it would be having a lion, a handing monkey, a snake and ample of green decorations. Something like this 
3. Home made food: Aah.. I am taking this as a challenge for myself. I am going to cook Chole- Puri (rayta, Pulaw, and mix veg as well) for my guests. If needed, we'll order some Paneer from outside. But as per plan, I would take help from one of my friends who is a fantastic cook. She is the master chef of our small friends' community. And of course, I'll take help from my husband. He only wants me to cook!!

4. Lunch Party: This time, we thought to plan a lunch party. The birthday is on Saturday and most of our friends work 5 days a week. So the weekend is for fun and dhamal. Also, this way we'll get more time to enjoy each other's company. There would be no hurry to rush home and no worry for next day school/offices

5. A Contest for readers: Now, this is for my friends who want to join the celebration sitting at home. I am running #VibhuAndPapa cartoon series for quite a while. And I am so happy with the response it is getting. Vibhu is my son's name and #VibhuAndPapa series is based on his amusing talks that he does with his father. And, the contest is around this series only. It is so simple. 

Just let me know 
1. Do you like "#VibhuAndPapa cartoon series?

Worshiping Krishna.. वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम्..

Shri Krishna Ashtakam is a worshiping prayer devoted to Lord  Krishna praising his powers and glory. Ashtakam means a prayer which contains eight hymns(slokas). Each hymn or verse is composed of four phrases, each describing one quality or great acts of Sri Krishna. And, each sloka is composed in two lines. It is believed that krishnashtakam lyrics possess great powers. Here is the English translation of this holy verse : वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम् । दॆवकी परमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥1॥ Vasudeva Sutam Devam Kansa Chanura Mardanam... Devaki Paramanandam Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum.. I pay my tribute to the teacher of this world Krishna, who is the son of Vasudev, who killed Kansa and Chanura and who is the source of great joy to Devaki. अतसी पुष्प सङ्काशं हार नूपुर शॊभितम् ।रत्न कङ्कण कॆयूरं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥ |2| Atasi Pushpa Sankasham Hara Nupura Shobhitam..Ratna Kankana Keyuram Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum... I salute to the teacher of this world Krishna,

#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 wh

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.
