#BlogchatterA2Z Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Last year, during this time(around Holi I guess) I started noticing posts with an unknown hashtag #ATOZCHALLENGE. I was new on twitter and in blogging as well. Despite I tried my mind so much, I couldn't understand what this hashtag was trying to convey and represent. After a few days, many of my twitter friends, whom I follow, started sharing their blog posts with the same hashtag. I couldn't stop myself and I read many of them. Much more and not sure how many. Following the threads and hashtag, I came to know about Blogchatter community. This is a community of readers and writers. They help bloggers in their daily blogging issues and confusions. They motivate bloggers and support their progress. I needed to join the community but the fear of being a beginner didn't let me join it immediately. However, I kept on reading #ATOZCHALLENGE posts, shared by my twitter friends and soon I made my mind to join this blogger colony.

I reached Blogchatter website and found a post on #ATOZCHALLENGE. As I went through the post, I realized this could be a golden opportunity to establish myself as a blogger. Also, as a novice blogger in the wide garden of blogging, I would be able to learn, absorb and understand so many new things. I further went ahead for registering myself. However, the registration was closed by then. I closed the browser tab with little heavy feeling.

For those who still are unclear what #ATOZCHALLENGE is, read this :
If you remove all Sundays from the month of April, twenty-six days are left behind. A to Z Challenge asks bloggers to blog on each of these twenty-six days doing so while following the alphabet. For example Day 1- Letter A, Day 2- Letter B and so on.

This year, as I heard the very first call about #BlogchatterA2Z from Blogchatter, I found myself ready to join this exciting writing trek. Very soon I got myself registered and I am now one of those people who has decided the theme to follow in all those 26 posts of #BlogchatterA2Z. Following a theme gives readers a hint what is coming in the next series post. Also, the theme keeps the writer focused towards expressing views, thoughts, and ideas.

I am a mother of a small kid who is still trying to understand this world. As a mother, it's my first and foremost duty to help my son grow. I am also a software professional who is now in mid-managerial level. My team is my second kid that I am raising. With two kids (my son and my team), I feel blessed that I still get time to pursue my hobby of writing. And Blogchatter's #BlogchatterA2Z gives me an excellent scope of growing my another child, my blog. I had a successful year of blogging in 2017. I presently have good twitter following (not yet thousand but close to thousand). My posts are getting enough (as per me) views and I have my own small web space "". I am really motivated to keep it going to the next level.

I expect, with #BlogchatterA2Z I would write, read and share a lot of meaningful content. I expect that people would also like to stop by my blog and would read and comment on my thoughts. I also expect that #BlogchatterA2Z would help me in making some space for my blog and for my writing. I wish to make new friends furthermore. I want to rise as a good writer, someone whom people like to read. And I have a lot of hope from #BlogchatterA2Z.

Slow and steady wins the race. I am slow, I know, but the good thing is I am steady as well. I am now part of #BlogchatterA2Z 2018.

" I am taking the Challenge of April with Blogchatter, are you? "

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…
