Pregnant Sisters.

I am blessed to have an elder sibling. A sister! Cliched? May be. Sometimes, cliches do make sense. And, I love to put them to use. 🙂 I was pampered (still am, to some extent). Most importantly guided all through to save myself from potential hurting corners. But I had one regret. I wasn’t treated “at par”. “Equal” – to hear… Read More »

When we were the ‘uninvited guests’.

  If you have been following my posts, you must know how me and my Mr. work hard on being social. Over the weekend, one of my Mr’s colleague invited us to a small gathering on the arrival of his newborn. We were enthusiastic. High five-ed and said bring it on! Time to turn social. Yay!( We so love it.) So… Read More »

I do miss these things about my pre-motherhood life!

Reality struck me as soon as I held my daughter in my arms. Motherhood is one job where you do not have the option to undergo training, beforehand to help you prepare. You learn everything on the job. This implies that we tend to discover the impact and consequences only when we are into it. So, when my… Read More »

The Truth is – Eating More (and NOT less) will help you lose weight.

  Weight loss is desired by many. It is the most overrated and misunderstood topic as well. You can now (very well) imagine the chaos, my friend! In a group, inadvertently, numerous pieces of advice are thrown at you. And at times, many are conflicting as well. Which leaves you baffled. You look for that one soul to… Read More »

3 things I won’t concede as I turn 31.

I was thirty last year and today I am adding another year to it. Gosh! It’s thirty plus one! If I look back at my twenties, it was more about conforming to the standards my parents had laid or did expect us to adhere and achieve. I got married in mid-twenties and was conforming to another mould. So I was… Read More »

The big 5 for life in 2017!

It’s a brand new year. Yet again. Year after year. Resolution is a cliched word to use around this time of the year. It’s overly used and abused. So of course, I’ll stay clear. This post is not about my new year resolutions. With this post, I am trying to bring focus to the big 5 areas we… Read More »

Tales of a reticent mum and her socially forthcoming daughter.

I’ve never been the one to approach strangers with a warm smile. Seldom been the first one to break any conversation. Eventually, termed myself as reticent. An introvert. While some seemed to be perturbed by this connotation, I was pretty comfortable in my skin 🙂 Eventually, found a man of few words. And aha it was two to tango! While it… Read More »

Humans and Humanity do not belong together, anymore

I read about the news last night. Blame it on the “mobile generation”. I read it around 12:30 am when not much details were known. But the mere fact that one person like you and me was killed, sorry Lynched (its not just a word!) right outside his house instigated rage and unrest. I was scared. For everyone I… Read More »

Being an Introvert ain’t a bad thing!

All the growing up years, I wasn’t a party animal. Was never the one surrounded by people, always. Ironically, I was mostly found on stage. I liked to be in public space. Do my jig and eventually roll back into my zone. Both, the excess and lack of public space bothered me. It actually fatigued me mentally. As I… Read More »
