My New Year Resolution That Never Changes

Ever since I understood the meaning of New Year resolution, I wished just one thing "I want to keep myself Happy". And for this coming year also I'm taking the same purpose for myself. I’ll try to do everything that it takes to make myself happy. People make different resolutions with every new year. I would admit, I did that also. I made new resolutions for me and tried to complete them. But soon I realized that everything in this world is related to happiness one or the other way. Happiness is so important to us, both as individuals and as a world, primarily because happiness is really everything.

My New Year Resolution That Never Changes by Vibhu & Me
We tend to forget how important happiness is and get consumed with our own negative feelings of doom and gloom from time to time. We sometimes don’t consciously realize that we are doing this to ourselves. As human beings, although we are highly "thought" oriented, the quality of our lives is ultimately ENTIRELY determined by our emotions. How we feel, how we think and then how we do. As individuals and as societies, happiness should be both our highest goal and an extremely effective means of achieving many other goals. And that's why I have stopped making new resolutions every year. I stick to just one goal for the whole year. BE HAPPY, SEE HAPPY

Being happy could be a mix of these things (or more) for me:

1. Facing life's challenges with smile
2. A healthy and Stress-free living
4. Some form of spirituality
5. Balancing family and work
6. and most importantly my son's happiness

I believe feeling happy is intrinsically important for oneself. If I am happy, I shall be more compassionate and feeling healthier both physically and emotionally. I shall be more creative, energetic and jolly only if I am happy. I shall try to make myself strong enough to face outside distractions and influences. Very few of us live our lives in complete isolation. We have kids, families, friends and work colleagues with whom we interact on a daily basis so if I am happy, then it’s likely to mean that my family and friends feel happier too. I know that it's hard to achieve complete happiness because I am trying this for last few years. But I want to continue my efforts. Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect, it means that I have decided to look beyond imperfections.

So here are my 7 mantras to happiness that I try to follow every year:

1. Think Less, Feel More
2. Frown Less, Smile More
3. Talk Less, Listen More
4. Judge Less, Accept More
5. Watch Less, Do More
6. Complain Less, Appreciate More
7. Fear Less, Love More

What are your new year resolutions? Did you get time to check your earlier resolutions and how much you achieved? Now is the time to start doing this exercise. The year 2018 is so close to joining the party. And if you are making resolutions for the new year, please include one point from my side. "I want to keep myself Happy".  This is the one thing that is all.

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…
