My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.”

Let’s seriously make this world a better place to live…..not only for ourselves but for our posterity.

we should honestly do our part….

We should contribute to this world without expecting what we’ll get back from it.

Words of Joseph Campbell flash in my mind,”The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be.Being alive is the meaning.


Today’s stuff was a bit serious one….that was my perspective.πŸ™‚

Take care my dear friends until we meet next time βš˜πŸ˜‡

Festivals – The Elixir of Life

(My lovely bonsai plants in festive mood)

Festival is a time when one refreshes oneself from the monotonous routine of daily life. The past few days were a whirlpool of busyness, the festive season had dawned , it was Diwali- The festival of lights, the most auspicious and awaited festival of the Indian subcontinent…the ho-hum life suddenly turned into never-ending spare of celebration…buying gifts,family get togethers,decorating the house, diwali bashes and so much more, right from early in the morning till late at night everybody was hooked,over excited.

Festivals reconnect friends and family. In this fast moving world where people start the day early in the morning and end late at night…they don’t have time for themselves, what to talk about family and friends! These vacation times are a gust of fresh air to the relationships….these are times to rejuvenate, time to interact with different generations, where grandparents share their memories with their grandchildren….time to get connected to the roots! These occasions are the bridges by which the culture travels to the contemporary times with the same zeal and enthusiasm, but in new flavours. I still remember when we were children, It was unimaginable to celebrate Diwali without fireworks, but today children are equally happy celebrating eco-friendly Diwali….these are the new noise only happy celebrations….

Now it’s time to detox your self, come out of the relaxing mode and throw yourself into the maddening, chaotic routine, but these days will always be our cherished memories.πŸ˜‡

My dear friends,Take care until we meet next and stay blessed!⚘😊

Letter from my daughter.

There were times when I was the person who used to remember every dear one’s noteworthy days and was the first one to wish them. I used to make plans days before. But time flies, under the crushing responsibilities and hectic, tiring schedules….gradually the pace of remembering such dates of celebration became slow. From days of endless parties, gifts and celebrations, these dates became mere formalities.
But today, when I read my daughter’s letter for me on my day, I became nostalgic, memories flashed, I the vivacious, jolly girl, who used to wish everyone on their special days……ironically, today forgot my own special day, my birthday.

Today, waking up as usual at 6 in the morning……straight away I went to my favourite place, my patio, surrounded by my beautiful garden which is filled with beautiful flowers, lush greenery and my bougnvillas….aah my favourite! My source of energy and positivity for the whole day!….Had been waiting for my cup of coffee and was flipping through my mails and suddenly there was a text from my daughter. I was a bit scared, her text and that too at 6 in the morning, for her it’s no less than midnight because she’s hardly an early-riser. I quickly opened the text and wow…never had expected such a wonderful surprise right at the start of the day.It was my daughter who made me remember what day was today….to my astoundment, my daughter has stepped into my shoes. It’s a feeling of immense pleasure and gratification…..😌😌I think this is called legacy. When you see and experience your child doing the same thing as you did twenty or twenty-five years back!!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

With ample ecstasy and pride, I would love to share my angel’s splash of feelings and emotions towards me enclosed within her letter.

It was in the wee hours , when I came across her text. Seriously saying, I was melted within, that was called a true mother feeling, which I seldom experience. She’s my pillar of strength. I just wanted to be a good mother like my own mother but I don’t know what she picked from me… I look on her letter, I feel the influence I have on her. This makes me proud a lot but scares me a bit too, that I am walking on the edge of a sword, that I can’t do anything wrong and am being closely watched. My actions, reactions, everything are making a person’s personality….”phew! What a feeling”😯…..She’s a blessing!!!πŸ˜‡
Jokes apart I wish every mother gets a daughter and a friend like her.

It is a really sentimental post dear friends, was too difficult to write down.
Take care until we meet next⚘


Yeah! 😊..sounds funny,….you are a helpless prey in the mighty clutches of your predator “time”. Sometimes I feel it’s times you are helpless.
When you can’t change your circumstances it’s better to reconcile with them..don’t get disturbed by whatever is going around you. Flow with life,let it flow the way it has been planned for you…. on serious notes, however hard you swim against the wave you’ll be thrown back to the same place,you’ll simply harm yourself. So set your sails in the direction of the winds… have patience, let the negative time pass,let the bad patch pass…there is no use fighting with your circumstances and cursing them and yourself…instead find ways to cool yourself, so that you can fight with them with a positive attitude.πŸ™‚
See things from a different perspective πŸ™‚find people and situations that give you solace…Acccept the fact,if suffering is inevitable you’ll have to go through it…but to feel its intensity is in your hand…once you tell your brain that “I’ll handle it”…I think things will become easy… gently pamper your gloomy heart.Come out of the present and hope for the good times to come.
As the day ends…”today will become yesterday”….and with the dawn,”tomorrow will become today.” bringing new turns and twists in life.
Always stay positive my friends,you can’t do anything of the past ….you don’t know what is in store for you. But one thing is sure,your creator knows your limit,how much you can suffer..he’ll never let you fall from the cliff.He can test you…he can twist you…but never hurt you..😊
I may be wrong in my perspective, but what ever I have experienced ,it is based on it.
Stay positive and take care my friends,until we meet next time! 😊⚘

Letter to my forever friend .

I still remember the day you were put in my arms for the first time, the first-time I saw you, no words can express that feeling!πŸ™‚….scared to hold that fragile “bundle of joy”….. mixed feelings with extreme happiness. There were tears of joy in my eyes. It was the first time we met as mother and daughter after you being a part of me for nine long months. You changed my role…. Within hours my perspective towards life changed. You became my priority above everything. Days and years have passed and I’m happy to see my “bundle of joy” growing into a confident, young, crazy girl, some say my xerox!☺☺☺
Some times I feel, God has given me another chance to live one more life through you, my 2nd innings. An amazing feeling to live twice in one life!!…Thank you my forever friend ….Thank you for transforming a crazy young girl into a responsible, sensible womanπŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„!
Happy Daughter’s Day to my amazing daughter!!⚘⚘

A very “Happy Daughter’s Day” to all my blogger friends who keep on inspiring and encouraging me…a humble thanks πŸ™πŸ˜Š
Take care until we meet next 😊⚘….
