The SELF apprehension...!!!

It happened 2 days ago! This guy, my mother's son-in-law; opened my shelf and laughed straight for 10 minutes.
I wondered what was so funny in there? Was that my overly arranged clothes or properly settled jewelry boxes? After pondering for a while and avoiding my yearn to kick him hard between butts, I approached him and saw him reading my 'to do list'. All my anger was then my embarrassment. He started reading my list out loud and crossed almost everything out of it. 'You don't do any of this! Hahahahah...'

He was right. I'm not the girl I used to be. I knew he didn't mean to embarrass me or hurt my feelings but he sure dust away the dirt from my mirror. I used to be so ambitious, active and thrilled about my list. Even when I listed why should I get married, top on that was, 'Once I'll be done with it, I'll focus on my goals, otherwise my parents will keep haunting me every other day.' Look at me now, I don't write, I don't listen music, I don't even do yoga anymore. 

My To Do List
I made this list with proud and pasted it in a place, where I spend most my time staring at, 'My shelf'. Everything in here is either something I really adore or something which leads me to my short/long term goals. Yes goals...not goal. After he was done, I looked at my list and found one very important thing was missing. "Don't let anyone else remind you of this list, i.e. don't forget yourself." 

Ever since I'm married, obviously things have changed. I have twice the people to take care of, I have a family, not room mates; a home not PG; I have to take care of bills, grocery and fitness of my family. And I have no problem doing all this. Cause now I have double the people who love and care about me. May be this happens to every girl.

Yes I do miss time I had for myself. These 24 hours will remain 24 hours, no super power can change them. But I found ways to make some 'ME' time. Now I listen music, while I'm cooking, I traverse youtube on my way to office. Work out while cleaning and write when my hubby is sleeping ;) BTW he has no idea he is part of this post :p One more thing, I will never let anyone else laugh at me or my list. If required I'll stand in front of mirror, laugh at myself and get going! :D

बचपन की पोटरी: किसी की मुस्कुराहटों...!

बात उन दिनों की है जब मैं तीसरी क्लास में थी और भाई दूसरी | हमे स्कूल बस पकड़ने के लिए करीब 200 मीटर चलकर गली से बाहर आना पड़ता था | ज्यादातर मैं और भाई अकेले ही चले जाते थे, पर कोशिश रोज़ होती के पापा हमे छोड़ने आये | कारण था नया नया स्टेट बैंक का एटीएम | याद है पहले हमे उसके अंदर जाने के लिए भी कार्ड स्वाइप करना होता था | जब तक बस नहीं आती हम उसी एटीएम के कमरे में घुस जाते और ऐसे रहते जैसे उन 5-10 मिनट के लिए हम उसके मालिक हों | कभी उसके केमेरे में देखकर अजीब अजीब शकल बनाते और कभी पूरे भारत में एस बी आई एटीएम की लोकेशंस प्रिंट आउट निकाल कर बैग में भर लेते | जब पापा उसमे कार्ड डालते तो राजाओं की तरह उसे पैसे निकालने का आदेश देते | कभी जब खेलने का मन नहीं होता तो हम बस कांच से बहार की दुनिया देखते रहते | जैसे हमारे लिए सब नया हो, जैसे हमे इस दुनिया के हैं ही नहीं | सुबह के सात बजे हमे हमारे छोटे से 5 मिनट के महल में कोई परेशान करने नहीं आता | हाँ महल | वरना ए सी की ठंडी हवा और कहाँ खाने मिलेगी, वो भी मुफ्त !

एक दिन सुबह बहुत ज़ोरों की बारिश हो रही थी | पापा को पिछली शाम बारिश में भीगकर घर…

Experience worth a million words: Children's day celebration!

When asked what they want to be, doctor and engineer were not even close to their answers!

This children's day, I picked my scooter and hit the road to see, if there is anything I can do. I knew visiting orphanages or government schools is always an option. But it's an option for almost everyone. I wanted to do something different. Last year I took kids who sell balloons and roses outside 'Noida Sector 18' metro station, to the nearby McDonald's. Staff was overwhelmed and allowed them inside. Heck of a day it was!

This year I had nothing in my mind. I only rode for a minute or two, when I saw these kids, playing. There is a construction site nearby. They belong to workers employed there. I called one of the elder woman, and asked if I'll offer anything for these kids to eat, would she approve? She delightedly accepted my request.

I asked her how many kids are here and rushed to nearby market(Qutub Plaza) and ordered 10 Dominos mini parcels. Bought 10 KitKat and…

"Happy Periods" aka menstral cup...!!!

Have you ever had this feeling during periods, "Why God why? Why I am a girl? Why don't boys have periods? Why can't it only happen once a year?  Why can't I just stay at home and sit at a place all day long? 😖" A few months back, I used to hate my periods. They are painful, messy and agonizing. Then somehow I switched to 'menstrual cup'. I'm not saying I love periods now, but this cup made them bearable. So here I present my story of not so bad periods.😊

I'll directly come on point.

Question no. 1: Why do I want to get rid of sanitary pads?
Phew! I got tons of reasons.
That uneasy feeling! No matter how soft they became over time, yet after an hour of use, they start killing me down there. I don't want to walk with a pad between my legs, or even stand. Many of you might feel the same way. After 3 to 4 hours it starts feeling heavy and after 6 hours, it gets this weird wetness. Above all, even when I'm not bleeding much, they keep remindi…
