The magic of Family.

Time: 8.20 PM Date: Today.

As my hubby and I chatted away on our dining set and kid was busy in watching TV, something happened all of a sudden. Somewhere in the universe, there took place a tryst between magic and desire. Being the only one possessed by its outcome, I asked my husband.

'Do you want some tea?' I looked at the clock nervously expecting a firm No.

'Yes. We can have some tea.' He said still glancing at his mobile screen. My happiness knew no bounds. Perhaps he too was struck by the same magical realm. My kid too was up to the offer.

I happily brewed our teas and when it was done, mobiles were kept aside and television was switched off. The three corners of a triangle occupied seats around the table and chatted nicely. Something clicked and I initiated an untitled game. Being a clever person, the hubby offered to peel garlic along  during the play thing. I hate peeling garlic! I usually bring them from the market, already peeled. But since he had miraculously agreed to my tea demand, I thought to grant him his wish as well. He brought six (!!!) bulbs of big garlic and put me on work as we started playing. According to it, each one of us had to explain the other two in three categories:

  1. Good points - Explaining the good qualities.
  2. Bad points - Explaining the bad things.
  3. Potentials -Hidden capabilities which can be fine tunes, if taken carefully.
My kid was the helmsman and he catapulted the chain. It was really interesting to know ourselves through his perspective. Although we have discussions such as this some times but it was the first time we were doing it elaborately. All three of us got a new and fresh perspective about ourselves. We learned a few important things but I have to admit. Whenever it was their turn to talk about my good points, I suddenly sat straight with a big grin. I guess I could use some positive listening today. I too gave away my honest reviews which they actually found good. I guess they need to see me soft-spoken at some point.

At the end, the game (and those smelly garlic) finished on a very refreshing note. My kid sang the song Hotel California and hubby recorded it. We shared so many things and I finally got to tell my kid one thing that I have always wanted to convey. Such moments have the strength to get some of the very important messages through. I wanted him to understand this particular thing and he did and I am so glad.

Truth to be told, this was an unexpected but a perfect end to an extremely stressful day.  I have always been an ardent believer in the concept of family but only because it solely has the capability to make you feel happy. It Gives more than it takes. It praises you even for those tiny things that you can make happen just in the click of a finger. It expects less and fulfills more. You hardly have to explain your contribution to it. It acknowledges every single of them wholeheartedly. If you feel down, it has the magical strength of lifting your spirits up to the clouds on which you can dance as a happy soul. It makes you feel WORTH.

Family turns your negative into positive and when it happens, the feeling gets indescribable. It sticks to you never mind the number of harsh weathers. It touches you deeply and keeps you connected with yourself. All in all, I am proud of my family and so very much thankful to it. Once again, it has shown me today the enormity of its love and the power of support. I love my hubby and kid with every single pore of my soul and with the same fondness and crossed fingers, let me retire for the night. I hope to have some peaceful sleep at least tonight.

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. Some key aspects are given just to remind you how they are in perfect alliance with your chosen work out.

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…

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…

A remarkable tribute by Amitach Bachchan for Nirbhaya

Today I read a poem written by legendary Amitach Bachchan. He has dedicated this to the Delhi rape victim (on Dec. 16th 2012). When I start reading it, I couldn't stop myself completing it. It is so remarkable and sublime that literally it will make a vortex into your brain with a dot at its end :: Nirbhaya's (Real name :: Jyoti Singh) pleas and pains.

I am gonna share this poem on my blog to make it as an inseparable part so that I won't have to juggle to search it again.

Maa bohot dard sah kar..
bohot dard de kar...
tukhse kuch kah kar main jaa rahi hun.......
Aaj meri vidai main jab Sakhiyaan milne aayengi...
Safai­d Jode main lipti dekh sisak sisak mar jayengi... Ladki­ hone ka khud pe fr wo Afsos jatayengi.....
M­aa tu unse itna kah dena Darindo k duniya main Sambhal kar rahna..........­­..... Maa Rakhi par jb Bhaiya Kalai suni rah jayegi.. yaad mujhe kar kar jab unki Aankh bhar ayegi.... Tilak mathe par karne ko Maa rooh meri bhi Machal jayegi... Maa tu bhaiya ko rone na dena.…
