13 Reasons Why should you start a Blog.

You know what works as a motivation to me for writing when routine is distorted and order has turned into chaos? It's my blog or rather say, blogs. Blog is a space to ogle out feelings as well as a healing workshop. i own not one but two blogs - Pages from my life in English (this one) and Pages from my life in Hindi
But first, let's get down to the task - me telling you why you should have a blog and moreover, how to keep at it. 
1. You get to SHARE
When people learn that i write blogs, one question hits me almost with lightning speed - What your blog is about? 
Well, my blogs are about my daily experiences. If you go by its name - Pages from my life - it's kind of like a book whose pages are about little big things happening around me or about me. i share anecdotes, memories, events about my books, upload my guitar covers, travel diaries, things to inspire, books i read, movies i watch, some idle thoughts...basically my blogs are all about me and the piece of planet Ea…

2018 - Best Diwali

A few days ago my kid came to me with rather a dull face. i was in the kitchen sorting out some work. My kid said,
Mumma! Why are we not in India? There we would be celebrating our Diwali with so much fun and activities. Here we have nothing to do. i miss India!
Now being in Kuwait has its own share of defense when it comes to Indian festivals. First and the foremost, it's altogether a different country, culture has no resemblance with India's and last but not the least, Diwali does not get celebrated here. This scenario would have been different if we were in US, UK, or even Dubai. These countries celebrate Diwali probably on a grandeur scale than India.
Naturally, it doesn't make any sense blaming a country for not being in the festival spirit. Diwali does not belong here. i replied to my kid,
You should not need to worry. Just remember - wherever we are as a family, it will be enough for a celebration.
i had no idea how much this resonated to my kid until my husband turn…

Pod Petal and Blog post

Like a pea pod opening to the universe Allow your shy heart  to shed layers  to open to adjust to expose;
Like a flower petal leaning on the sunshine Allow your dimensions to stretch to be discovered to bend to mingle into One;
Like a blog post written to be read Allow the burdened soul  to mend to get scripted to be held to be loved...

What happens when you forget to put a spoon in your kid's lunch box?

He would return home with the box full of food, duh!
Only it wasn't a duh moment for me today. It was rather an Oh no! moment, dripping with shock, sadness and anger. i was shocked and angry with myself whereas sad for my kid. Me forgetting to pack a spoon for his lunch meant he only had a sandwich, a few grapes and an orange. Because of my forgetfulness, he came back home hungry.
Usually i take care of such scenarios in advance. i always put an extra or two spoons in his bag. Evidently, today's incident wasn't the first. i have forgotten the spoon 2-3 times earlier and he had somehow managed eating with hands but that did not stop me from wincing. Today, he couldn't eat his rice and curry with hands.
So first thing i did was to pack a couple of spoons in his bag and then i quickly hauling myself into the kitchen where i made him a nice, healthy snack. 
So if you're a parent, learn this from another parent. Keep an extra set of spoons and forks in your kid's b…
