A Haven Amidst the City

It was a usual lazy Sunday morning; my husband and I have an almost set Sunday morning routine. We get up just a bit later than usual, but not too late, and my husband heads towards the main door to pick up the newspaper and I walk into the kitchen to brew hot cups of…

It’s time to give back…

Like I mentioned sometime earlier, once you start listening to yourself and make room for your passion, the universe conspires to make things happen in your favour.

(Photo courtesy: Author’s own) Parenting is a joyous journey for all of us, no matter what our stories are. And having said that, parenting is also hard at times; not knowing if we are doing the right thing or not; and amidst all this confusion it doesn’t help to find news feeds like: “10 things…

Every mom’s heart-ache

Ok, I have been feeling desolate for these past few weeks. You know, the feeling that every mother experiences at various stages in her parenting journey; the constant thought that whatever little quirks our kid is doing right now, may stop anytime; that you never know when it might be the last time they might…

Quality time vs Quantity time

Gender sensitization begins at home…

Today morning while we were busy in the kitchen preparing breakfast alongside packing lunch for kids, my husband suddenly remembered something my nephew said to him a few days ago. It seems he noticed my husband working in the kitchen and remarked, “I have never seen my dad doing stuff in the kitchen, ever!”  Although…

What does love look like?

  I read a post shared by a friend of mine on Facebook which had been going viral on Instagram and I instantly knew why. It strikes a chord so close to your heart. The writer gives you a true account of what real love is, and you get what she is trying to say….

So what’s stopping you…Dream on!
