Prince William says he cries more now that he’s a dad

You know who is Prince William? Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge, is the elder son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales. He is second in line to succeed his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, after his father. He belongs to the British royal family and has a military career. But above all he is now a father of two kids, Princess Charlotte and Prince George. Few days back he had been interviewed and he opened up about the effects of fatherhood in his life. Prince William admits fatherhood has made him cry more often and he finds himself worrying about "not being around to see his children grow up." Isn't it very touching?
Prince William lost his mother, Lady Diana, when he was 15 and that's why as a father he's more emotional now. He said he now cares for even the smallest things around his kids. As per the interview report, before becoming a father William wasn't that emotional. But being a father made him realize the importance of life and how precious it can be, especially with kids and family. As in his own words when he was asked more about his fatherhood, "You get affected by things that happen around the world or whatever a lot more I think as a father, just because you realize how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective, the idea of not being around to see your children grow up." He also shared that his parents often took his family to different charity events to help them understand there was more to the world than living in a palace. His parents wanted him to understand what was going on around him, outside his comfort zone. He made a point that what his parents were doing is really essential to put life lessons in young minds. He said it's important for kids to start seeing the broader picture of life which is not always luxurious and perfect. 
I feel as a father, Prince William is very normal without any royal touch. He thinks about kids and life in the same ways as every father does. He is sentimental and doesn't hesitate to show his emotional side to everyone. Even researchers have proved it that emotional support, both from mother and father, is imperative for a kid's life. Society is changing indeed. Now fathers are showing their emotions in public, even with tears sometimes. They are more open and more close to their kids. They are breaking the traditional image of a father who is least caring towards feelings. I think, today’s fast lifestyle needs fatherhood as equal and efficient as motherhood, especially when both the partners work. In the past, it was usually one kind of partnership, father in charge of making a living and mother in charge of looking after the children and giving emotional support to them. That worked for many years and, for some families, it still works well. But now mothers and fathers are more likely to share many roles. And that's how today's fathers are more demonstrative about feelings than ever before.

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…
