#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 "http://www.vibhuandme.com/". 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.

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. And I…

#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 who..

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, who is surr…
