kids can make you do any thing :)


Kids can make any one do anything. U agree?? Parents are always ready to do anything for making their kids happy even if they actually don't like doing that. Here is the short and sweet story which is a real experience of one of my office-mates.


One fine day Harman and his mother Gurpreet were going to Gurudwara. Harman's grandparents (Dadi ji and Dada ji) were also with them. They were walking by a busy road so Gurpreet was trying to hold his son's hand. She said " Harman, please hold my hand, it's a busy road baby." In reply 4 years old Harman said " You said I am a big boy now then why should I hold your hand. I can go by myself." Gurpreet got his curt reply and thought to trick him in some other way. She said " When a boy and a girl move by the road side, they always hold hands of each other. As you are a boy and I am a girl so we should hold each other’s hand. Now give me your hand Harman." The smart boy Harman gave it a deep thought. It wasn't easy to trick him. He then said to his mother " Why Dadi ji and Dada ji are not holding each other’s hands ? They are boy and girl going together on the same road." Gurpreet was speechless. She underestimated his son. Accepting her failure in convincing Harman, she requested her in-laws to hold their hands. Now Dadi- Dada were clueless. She gave them all explanation and requested that this is the only way to sell this to Harman. Dadi ji started saying " You will make us feel insulted. At this age, how can I hold Dada's hand!! It wouldn't look good. What other people will say !!" Gurpreet again got acute reply from her mother in-law. She noticed Dada ji was smiling and getting red cheeks. But on Gurpreet's strong request Dada ji held the little finger of Dadi ji and started walking for Gurudwara. Oh boy Harman!! It was only few steps ahead, Harman again stopped. Gurpreet asked him " Now what ??". Harman sweetly replied " When a boy and a girl hold each other's hand while walking, they swing them back and forth also, just like we are doing Mamma. Tell Dadi ji and Dada ji to do it like this." Gurpreet laughed and suddenly stopped laughing with the thought she can't say this to her in-laws, to swing their hands :). Harman wanted a demonstration before taking any step further. She apprehensively went to her in-laws again. She told them whole point what Harman said. Now Dadi ji was full of anger. She started saying " Why can’t you stop Harman asking so much questions. This boy has given me a real headache. How would it look, 60 years oldies walking on a busy road, holding their hands and swinging them as well." Dada ji was still smiling. He said to Dadi ji " Let’s do it for our baby Harman." Gurpreet was not able to stop her giggle seeing her in-laws walking in such a way. First time after her marriage, she saw her in-laws holding each other’s hand. Though Dadi-Dada were not looking at each other but Harman made them walk like today's couples :)

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.


Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
