#SayYesToTheWorld Traveling With Kids, It is Easier Than You Think

After having a kid in our life, we husband-wife were completely consumed in our parenting duties. Those initial days were very busy and hectic. I was trying to balance both, my work and an infant at home. Although my mother-in-law was with us to look after our few months old son, we both hardly had any free time. I once read that the best way to spell love is “T.I.M.E”. And we both were drained on this front. I knew it was a usual phase that every couple goes through after becoming parents, however, we both needed a break from our usual life.

We Planned The Perfect Getaway 
Then one day I read a post on traveling and reading this, I couldn't stop myself from forwarding this to my dear husband. The post was promoting new parents to go on vacations with small kids. As per the post, when kids are small and yet to join the school, this is the best time to explore the world with them. Realizing the fact, my husband planned a week-long travel but this time we were not alone. Our one and half year old boy was with us. Our plans and travel were completely focused on our toddler. Traveling with a toddler can be very intimidating. You never really know how he/she would react once you are out there (will they cry or shout or poop or throw up?). Thank God, we went ahead and booked our flight tickets. All my worries and apprehensions got busted after this trip. 

Monsoon Capital of India “Pune”
During that travel, we, husband-wife, got a chance to refresh our family and personal lives with enjoying a full week's vacation in Monsoon capital of India “Pune”. We went to a family friend's place there, and the first time I realized that a bit of TLC is needed in every relationship to keep it harmonious. Scientist says humans are pre-programmed to love green spaces of nature. There is something really special about being in nature; something magical that calms the depths of our souls like nothing else. Really, with so much greenery and good weather, our family Pune visit was awesomely wonderful. Roaming around in drizzling rain and enjoying the best of nature’s presence along with good friends, what can be better than that? Our visit included many places around Pune including beautiful Lavasa and Khandala.

Traveling Is Definitely the Best Time To Bond.
The best part of this exploration trek was my son's gleeful behavior throughout the trip. We normally feel young children may not remember the new things they discover during a trip but they do. Traveling teaches young kids many new things. They learn ways of the world. They learn how to be adaptable and they learn how to express themselves better. To my surprise, my toddler loved every bit of this travel. He was fine when we air traveled. He was absolutely cheery when we road traveled and he was even more elated when we walked in the rain of Lavasa. Traveling provides one of the best ways to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life. And during our Pune travel, we also got ample of time to give to our boy. I now feel traveling is definitely the best time to bond.

#SayYesToTheWorld With Kids 
I know, with kids comes a lot of exceptions and tough times, especially when you are at a new place. Howbeit, I feel a good planning can make your vacation an absolute bliss with the company of kids. Being open-minded in taking my toddler to new places, helped me realize that kids can be awesome vacation partners and a world travelers too. Better than grownups, kids express more openness for new people, new culture, and new surroundings. I have traveled many places with my young boy and all our trips were very pleasant. So, whether you decide a weekend getaway (which is what we planned), a short out-of-town trip or an adventure travel, please consider bringing your child or children with you. Don’t wait out until they are older. Moments like these could pass you by, so cherish it while you can. #SayYesToTheWorld and explore new places with your kids.

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…

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

This post is for #BharatKaZaika is a blogging event conducted by #BlogBoosterIndia. 

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.

Our food heritage

You see, In our country, there is a tradition of respecting and celebrating food. The spirit of classical Indian civilization guided that primary duty of the king is to ensure that none within his domain suffers from hunger. Hence the king ensured that people…
