Kabhi-Kabhi pas aane ke liye..door jana hota hai!

I once read that the best way to spell love is “T.I.M.E”. Unfortunately, time is something that many of us hard to find. Whether it's the time to spend with family or with kids, or with friends. Because of today’s fast lives, we live in a stressful and busy world where many of us are juggling full-time careers with looking after a family and home. However, we are informed people and many of us now recognize the importance of taking care of our mental and physical health. So we are also trying to squeeze in time for work-out routine and relaxation into our overstretched lives. But what about our relationship health? It doesn’t need any supporting fact to recognize that vacations improves family bonding and hence relationships. But there is certainly something to the mention that spending time together as a family, away from the stresses of the daily routine of work, office and domestic life, can make us all happier. At least for a while!
While going with the usual flow of life, we often neglect the importance of relationships. And time is essential for every relationship to both survive and shine. When we spend time with family and friends, it demonstrates our priorities in life. It shows our loved ones that they really matter and that being with them is meaningful to us. But unfortunately, we all only have 24 hours a day and 7 days a week so the only way to make more time for our relationships is to have a complete breakaway.
During the start of this month, I (with my family ) got a chance to refresh my family and personal lives with enjoying a full week's vacation in Pune. We went to a family friend's place there and the first time I realized that a bit of TLC is needed in every relationship to keep it harmonious. Before we landed that, I was not much familiar with Pradeep Bhaiya and Usha bhabhi (my husband's friend and his wife, whom we lovingly call Bhaiya and Bhabhi). But the day I left Pune, they were like my family members, who mind and care even the smallest discomfort around us. They took us to different beautiful places in Pune and amazingly the smallest member of my family, my 22 months old tot, enjoyed a lot in their company. Sometimes we fear to take an extra step and make new relationships for life but we both, me and my husband, were overwhelmed after staying with Bhaiya-bhabhi. The little time I spent with Usha Bhabhi has made me a big admirer of her. Another couple that accompanied us was Roma and Veeru Bhaiya. Veeru Bhaiya is a scientist in DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) but his simplicity and jolly nature is absolutely commendable. 
Scientist says humans are pre-programmed to love green spaces of nature. There is something really special about being in nature; something magical that calms the depths of our souls like nothing else. With so much greenery and good weather, our Pune visit was awesomely wonderful. I even regretted that we live in Delhi. Seeing those greenery coated mountains and waterfalls, I am in love with Pune. Roaming around in drizzling rain and enjoying the best of nature’s presence along with good friends, what can be better than that?
Thanks to my husband who realized that we badly needed that 'us' time and he planned this wonderful break for me. “It’s quality, not quantity that counts”. And this is never truer than when we talk about time with our partner. Spending a week’s time, when we had more reasons to laugh, enjoy and memorize, has made us recall our best of qualities which we normally ignore while balancing our routine office and family lives. True is that "Kabhi-Kabhi pas aane ke liye..door jana hota hai! " (Sometimes going far, gets people closer) With this almost 1200 km long journey, I have come close to both the families who were with us in Pune. And worth mentioning, I have come closer to my husband!

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…
