I Salute The Mother In You

I have been traveling through BEST bus since a month now. Observing passengers especially ladies. I prefer the reserved seat for ladies. I usually get to sit immediately there. 

A lady in burkha sat beside me with her 7months boy. I started.
Me: "Does he have teeth yet?"
She was very welcoming and showed me his tiny milky teeth. He was cute, enjoying that he was travelling.
Me: "Is he your first child?"
She said, “No its my third, I have other two girls. I just dropped them to school and am returning from there.”
It is a personal opinion on how many kids a couple wants to have but what amazes me is how a mother takes care of as many kids she has with all the love and attention.

Today while at the bus stop for boarding my ride i meet a lady. She lost her husband at much early age and had two kids to take care. she started her career at 30 and didn’t look back. Its cool how she manages her home and work together with kids. No personal life! I salute the mother in her too.

I am married and now I know how much fun it is to go back to mom's home and spend time with her. My dad is retired but mom is never going to be. When I go to stay with her, she still gets up early morning and cooks a meal for me so i can enjoy it in the noons at office. She probably will never retire. I will be a mother in future someday. I wonder how will I get the strength, dedication for my kids and love them unconditionally?

Being Critical and Comparative about my ride

I don't want to sound too critical.. But am just wondering if any1 out there in city of Mumbai, face the menace of this black rushing cockroach... the auto rickshaw. (Spare me if I did!)
No doubt, its the quickest was to reach in the nick of the time to your office..your home..a function.. when there is no public transport! The problem is.. there are more issues to travelling by an auto then there are advantages!
First of all, its next to impossible to get an empty auto in the city of mumbai and if you still manage to plead a driver with your innocent looks you should think thats an angel hailed from heaven on a god-forbid road.

Kshamapna: Forgiveness

The 8days Jain festival called "Paryushan" has a very thoughtful message to give. It inspires you to forgive and forget the past grievances. "Michhami Dukkadam" is what you tell everyone, not only humans but every single soul in the universe. It is a prakrit phrase meaning 'to be forgiven' or 'may all evil that has been done be forgiven'.

Why do we forgive some one?
1. Because he can be harmful
2. Because you owe him
3. Because of some religious reason like God says we must forgive and forget
4. Because that is what you call as dignity
There can be many reasons. Be it. But the calmness you feel after forgiving wholeheartedly is inexpressible. Like we bath daily... our soul should also be cleaned at-least on a yearly basis!

As humans we tend to have some or the other feel of grievances, hatred, enmity, jealousy etc towards others. Slowly & gradually this ill feelings give rise to feelings of revenge which ultimately is a destructive process &…

Strong Mental Health

How to be Mentally Strong?  Ami Morin is a therapist and has written the bestseller "13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do". I haven't read the book but I have heard her tedx talk. Here is the guidance by Amy Morin and my notes on them.

 Believe in yourselfWe usually have certain beliefs about ourselves that are developed during our childhood. Like I am lazy to finish any task, I am an angry person, I am only good to people for certain amount of time etc. These are the statements usually by my key person, my guardian or my mom. I do feel offended when she says so but I accept it like a blind faith.If I try to say good things about myself and prove with incidences I can regain faith in my efforts, in myself. That will make me HAPPY.Daily Gratification is a good habit I will cultivate. It will surely make me feel special and thankful for what i have.Achieving my goals will elevate my faith in myself. Dont Compare yourselfWe find ourselves comparing with our friends…
