Because I love the Women in Me..

There are so many women achievers to count for us who have been an inspiration and role model for many of us. The list includes great women from our ancient history to those who have become achievers just this morning. Almost all of us would name a woman who has inspired us in life. I myself have remained influenced by the acts, life, and achievements of many women at different phases of my life. Yes, I had started with an assumption of being a great dancer when I had made my maiden moves on Shri Devi’s Nau Nau chudiyan song. Later, I remained influenced by Kalpana Chawala, Sushmita Sen, and Indira Nooyi also. My marriage made me look at my own mother as how she could manage a family life and workload in that much required balanced form and I became influenced by her too. But now, I feel I am a fan of my own self.

I am a housewife who had left job a few years back and could not join back after being indulged in marriage family life. I certainly would not recommend my name to a list of most talented housewives too. I keep my house the way I like. I often like a cupboard as messy as the one I keep at my house. I let the house decore be the way it automatically becomes. I do care about the hygiene and cleanliness but I never resort to shouting at anyone who is not in tune with the cleanliness rules that I follow. I often let the morning coffee mug remain on the center table beside the unfolded newspaper for the entire day. I can cook food that ranges from good to ok and to terrible also. In all that, I am an imperfect character. Despite this, I love myself. I know how to let go. I know that doing the same thing with a tag of adjustment is not even consoling while doing it with an aim of adaptation is much preferable. I laugh at my own flaws.

To me being women is a great virtue in itself and this why I never aspire to be a superwoman. I enjoy the morning view from my balcony every day and listen to the birds singing to me. I smile at my flaws and get on with my hope and effort of improvement. I am just not a part of this rat race where people look at each other like women in washing powder advertisement who remain surprised when the other woman is able to do her laundry better (Bhala iski safedi meri safedi se jyada kaise). I know I have a little life and my reason for happiness lies within me only. I never compare myself to any other women and not even think of losing my position at any place where I am one of the leads.

I often see women complaining that they have done a lot for others all their lives and they see no one caring for them in back. This does not mean I don’t love my family or I don’t care for things. This is just that I don’t want anyone else to remain responsible for my happiness. Well, I keep doing my part towards love and responsibilities but I also do my part for my own self. I hardly wait for someone to insist on going out for shopping as I plan and do it all myself for myself. I keep time for hobbies in the 24 hours I am blessed with. I have stopped complaining to anyone for anything that is not there for me. Instead, I have started praising all my efforts towards everything to whatsoever result it could lead. As I am happy from within, I am able to pass on shining smiles to everyone I meet and this has made me a comforting solution to my family and friends.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

Food Habits That I Am Going To Change This Year

This post is for New Year resolutions blog train. The blog train is hosted by Vartika, Alpana and Prerna,  sponsored by Pandora's Box and Recipe Dabba. My topic is Dr Feelgood - How are you planning to tweak your Food Habits for 2019 .  

We all desire to stay healthy and happy. Yes, happiness is very much connected to our health. But today's sedentary lifestyle has made us fall for quick meals and unhealthy choices. Over the course of time, these quick things give us side effects that rather don't go quick. Eventually, we fall prey to weight loss industry which asks for cutting sugar, salt, oils, carbs, dairy product and almost everything which is there in our kitchens since our grandparents time. We run after different diets (Ketogenic diet, Vegan diet, Raw food diet etc) and we even believe in schemes like having dinner before sunset, getting rid of rice, keeping a distance with fruits and avoiding any type of fat.

Is this way of keeping ourselves fit sustainable in the …
