A daughter's lullaby.

This eve, I was resting next to my mother. We got to talking as usual about several things. Then all of a sudden and on some clue, I started narrating her my stories (It's Never Too Late and also the upcoming one). I was delighted telling her all the major twists and turns. I kept narrating and suddenly, when I was at the climax of my second novel, I noticed she had fallen asleep. It was a dimly lit room so I had to strain my eyes for the confirmation. And I indeed found her swept off to sleep. I smiled looking at her peaceful face. In fact I was a little amused as well.

It was not like she had gotten tired of my narration. Through out the whole she kept up her interest with occasional and apt 'Is it?', 'Really!' and also by nodding in between at twists and the understandings of human psychology that I have introduced in both of my creations. If the listener is good, narration becomes a joyful experience. So I was truly delighted at her interest but when I realized she had dozed off, I was not disappointed. It was the entire day tiredness that had made her helpless and listening to interest piquing stories worked as a perfect lullaby.

Truly speaking, I felt I was the mother performing a story- telling session to her daughter. And the kind of joy and satisfaction a mother feels after making her baby sleep, I too felt the same way. I let her continue sleeping while I slid away to do some writing.

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…

Aspects of a work out

Finding the right kind of work out is quintessential for your fitness regime. Not everyone has the same cup of tea when it comes to melt calories and congeal the fitness. Therefore, if you are thinking of going for a fitness regime upfront or are already enrolled for one but getting supremely bored, chew on the key points below to get a better digestive form of what work out may work best for you.

Body type and target areas 
First of all, learn your body type. There are few body types like Apple, Pear, Hour glass etc. Apple means your upper body is wider than your lower; Pear body type is just the opposite means lower is wider than the upper body parts; Hour glass figure is usually considered ideal as it contains the same ratio of chest and hip while teetering a lean waistline.



Then ponder on the areas that really sucks for you. If your waist line resembles a room size, you really…
