A moment of smile

After a hectic day, now I get some time to settle on my sofa to have chit chat with my blog and I have a special moment to share that happened this morning.

My son is not well since last two days. Same story. Cold cough and then fever (because of weather change or something). He is having his exams since a week and is supposed to take one more week to finish. Since he isn't well, hence I was perturbed whether he'd be able to give his today's exam. Therefore I had a talk with his teacher regarding the same yesterday. She suggested if he could manage just for an hour, he could come and give his exam and then go to home straight. I wasn't sure about this option and expressed the same to her. Re-test system is not applicable now, so if he misses one paper that means that paper can not be given again.

This morning I asked my son whether he is in the state to give his exam. Initially he wanted to stay at home thinking he could go for the re-test but when he heard re-test can not be done and his paper would go blank, he asked me again.

My son :: "Mumma! If I don't give today's exam, can I give it tomorrow?"

I :: "No baby. Re-test is not possible as I told you. If you are feeling better, I'd say let's go and give your exam. I will wait outside your school and collect you after the paper in one hour"

My son (thinking) :: "It means in PTA, my paper will come in blank?"

I :: "Yes! it will. See if you can manage baby, then we can go in a whoosh and come back in no time"

My son (almost instantaneously) :: "I will go mumma. I will give my paper"

And I was surprised as well as happy to see his dedication towards his exam. Who says kids are not serious about their studies? At least my kid has bowled me over by his sincerity this morning. We got ready in 20 minutes and left home. I drove him to the school and reached on right time. Teacher was happy to see him. While he started to give his exam, I waited outside in my car. 

Just before finishing the paper, his teacher asked me a favor for minding the class for 10 minutes. Initially I stood there and instinctively my teaching skill was brought in action. I had been a tutor a while ago. Therefore I knew being a teacher is a challenging job. Children were talking, sharing their things, hitting each other, scratching their heads to think of the suitable answer, digging their noses, screaming at one another and this all means they all were truly behaving like children. It was interesting to see them. 

I tried my best to behave like a good teacher and ordered them things that a teacher would normally do. Funny thing was, some children were confused regarding what to pronounce *the-sudden-new-avatar* of their teacher. Some escaped to called me 'Ma'am' while some preferred to go with 'Aunty'. It was quizzical to see them thinking more about what to call me rather than thinking about the answers. Anyways, I guess I did a fair job as '10 minutes student monitor' or '10 minutes teacher'. Later on, the class teacher came and thanked me. Then I and my kid left. My kid had done his paper well and didn't feel any health issue at all during the paper.

When I told his this exam attitude to my mother and sister, they went like "Awww! So nice" to which I proudly replied "Yes! He is". From tomorrow I guess he can regain his full time schooling. Let's hope for his best health.

Why do we need occasions like Mother's Day?

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in this world. Today is a special day for mothers and after wishing my own, I feel great. Mummy did not know today is her day and she was simply surprised when I wished her. She wished me back and then we chatted for a little more while before we hung up.


But before calling her, something else had happened. I was calling her but she was busy somewhere for incessant 20 minutes talking to someone else. Finally I called my father and informed about it's Mother's Day today. He chuckled and wished me. Then he asked,

"Who has made days like Mother's day, Father's day etc.? Do we really need such occasions?"

I laughed. Comments similar to this often flow my way nonetheless I replied to him.


"No. Actually we really don't need such days but if dedicating one day especially to our loved ones, we can shower some extra pounds of love, affection, care and gifts, there is no harm in celebrating them. For the rest of th…

Happy Diwali!!!

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and full of laughter diwali (I guess I am the first one to wish you all :) ).



It's 12.30 AM and I am awake doing some interesting chit chat with my beloved husband. He is such a great talker and an even better listener (later one goes in my favor of course ;) ). We are exchanging diwali wishes with our parents. I am really happy today as I'd be making a number of really delicious food items (you all are invited too), making two rangolis afterwards and then enjoying the evening with our friends along with firing crackers. I know I know crackers are unfriendly for our environment. Therefore, we all would be doing it in a limit :). My husband is such a great supporter. He loves doing chores with me which makes everything so special and quick of course. I find it sweet. I also enjoy his company pretty much. Yayyy!! We are going to squeeze the maximum joy out of our favorite festival....again.
And yes...as I had promised, I am sharing the two d…

25 ways to save water

My father has asked me to help him out in writing an article on "How to save water? or simply put, "Water Conservation". While working on it, I thought this article is worth sharing on my blog as water conservation has become one of the hottest topic world wide in last few decades. Importance of water now-a-days is well known by everyone. We need water from the first hour of our waking life till the last one. Retaining the water will also help in cutting down on other global crises like global warming and droughts.

I searched profusely and the useful tips I have found are hanging below. Feel free to read them and help our mother planet to attain its water abundance.


Simple things just for reminder. Close tap the taps while brushing or washing vegetables etc.; while filling a bucket with water, make sure you close the tap on time. Do not overfill the bucket; teach children how to save water. Stick stickers to several places (as shown above) that shows how to save water. …
