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?

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:
How you are p…

#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.
