The soothing hug.

It's weekend here. Friday and Saturday. Be it either weekdays or weekends, there is always a rush chasing. For weekdays, it's routine whereas on weekends, it's the desperation to relax. Both the ways, days always go by in a blink.

These days i feel i am growin even more intolerant to the constant running. All i crave is to sit down and have a lengthy luxurious piece of quietness. Now i understand better when i see movie stars having wine in their bath tubs, listening to music and relaxing in the aromatic pool of water. Quietness can be so lucrative that it makes the human go at any length to have it.

It's so tough to afford it, you know. The quiet Me time where you can just sit and do nothing. A cup of tea is appealing so warm sips provide more comfort. Here in Kuwait, there are plentiful of sea beaches. And the way its citizens maintain them, hats off! They really like to keep their city and beaches superbly clean. Whenever i get a chance, i want to walk on the edge of the sea. The crashing of small waves at several points, the restlessness of water, the precision of clarity in it (when you look down, you can actually count stones, pebbles and rocks under it. the water is so impressively clean!), the mild winter, the warmth i get in the hugging jacket while seeing at the horizon where the sky and earth seem to have an eternal meeting...these just take me off my feet and i breathe the freshness, the crispness of the moment. Each one of us has different perspective to absorb the surroundings. i too am no exception.


i see sea and i feel myself surfing along its waves. i peer over the horizon and i understand the silent meeting is being held. i look at people around, talking, walking hand in hand and i see the appreciation of nature and human for each other. i see my feet submerged in the sea water, i sense the concept of belonging, as if i belong to the air, to its tiny particles, that every water droplet is trying to say something, that the hidden sun and brightly lit moon is sending a message. i feel as if the whole nature is trying to soothe the over-stressed, hyper-worked out physical, mental and emotional state of human beings. The whole scene resembles a big hug, waiting to get you in its embrace so that you no longer have to feel lost, because it has all the answers you are seeking for. But alas! Humans are too busy to give more attention than they tend to think they can. There is always some work left behind at home to complete, the grocery shopping, movie tickets, phone calls to make, or simply, an excuse to say that hey! You are a sea. You are not going anywhere so i'll get back again. Right now, i gotta go do something more important than just stand here and watch over you. You are practically the Hulk so you can take care of yourself.

Us! Tch! Always trying to prove we are the VIPs for nature, that we are the privilege for it. Talk about the irony of it all!

Good thing i find with the nature is, that it doesn't have to shift anywhere. It sticks! May be we too should learn the same thing. To stay honest to our bearer. And who might that be?

Right!

The nature, once again.

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. …
