If you can bring a smile and glow a heart with happiness...

You never go downstairs enough to have that walk. Terrace usually seems to do the job but sometimes when you have miss out on a neighbor you are expecting to talk to, the heavens slide down and you decide to amble on the earth.

And then I met three lovely aunties and we all got into a fun light conversation. The evening was sultry yet the laughter and unexpected companionship were embracing. In the middle of somewhere, one of those elegant ladies said,

"I saw her one day. She was running. When I asked, she said she was going to your book club. She looked so happy saying that." (Yes! That ongoing conversation was about my book club - Pick'A Book Club - For Kids - that I run from home, at home every Thursday.)

I heard in silence as the last comment drenched me with a strange kind of happiness.

She looked so happy saying that.

But it was only then when those ladies left for their homes and I re-picked up my ambling once again that the remark got my complete attention. It brought a little peaceful smile on my face. Often I am in the receipt of very positive feedback about my book club and the way I run it. Even this morning, a bunch greeted me. But the remark came from that neighborhood aunty got completely under my skin. It's probably the best compliment for my efforts and energy and thinking that I put for my book club.

I reminisced how usually I used to get bored when I had to attend my tuition and extra classes, when I was little. Kids usually don't like sitting and reading books. But it's not the same for my book club. Kids actually do feel happy when they leave their houses to mine, just so to read, eat something nice and get indulged in discussions, Guest Talks and other cool activities. The platform that I give them when the reading slot is over, they share their experiences too! And they look so delighted doing it!

It's true you can't make everyone happy but if you can bring a smile on a kid's face and glow her heart with the happiness, you know there is something real in life to cherish, to celebrate in silence and finally you light up with a smile yourself.

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…

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…

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.
