I love social events and so be it a simple birthday or huge fat wedding, be it a religious one or a normal get-together I will make sure to be present and shake hands with new people enhancing my network. Last Sunday, after the morning break fast at Mama’s place and whole day long cake workshop, the social bee in me took me to “Maheshwari Samaj’s Sankrant Milan (a small function where we had dance competitions, games for ladies followed by dinner).
I would just like to share a very beautiful incidence that happened – After all the performances everyone proceeded to the dinner counters. Every thing seemed normal till the time people started approaching the Used plates counter. It is quite usual that even if you don’t throw food in waste bin at your own homes, when one is in such social gatherings – we simply try tasting every item placed on the counter and throw the ones we did not like much. Same did happen that evening, people started trying on all items and when they were full, the rest of the items in plate were taken to the Used Plate counter to be washed off with the plates!
What was new in this – There were two men (Mr Krishna Saboo and Mr Bang) standing voluntarily near the USED PLATE Counter wearing a smile on their faces informing all those who arrived with food in their plates (which was to be thrown) to get empty plates or else they will eat the leftovers!! Amazing and Hats Off to the efforts taken for an attempt to avoid wastage of food! People had to eat all that they had taken in their plates and that day there was not a single bread which was wasted!
Thankful to the attempt taken by you people. It is truly a lesson of not wasting food, as well as an example of how things can be conveyed in a simple way without any show-off!
(Accept this blog as a token of gratitude on behalf of everyone!)
If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends. If broken by an inside force, life begins. Great things always begin from the inside.”
A wonderful quote read at one of our client’s premises! The audit place is usually seen as pressure and deadlines with an expectation to have a highly active mind to catch up all the discrepancies and hidden transactions of all the entire year! So here normally I am on a mood of complete professionalism where the usual chatter box of my own self is turned to on to mute mode and mind is all vigilant!
Gazing around the premises to take a rough idea of the nature of business, I came across this inspiring quote. It just took my attention away, as it had so much to be thought on!
Forces inside you can make you a complete new person – kind of ready to face the world! It can shape you and sharpen you! It had multiple meanings – and I could just not stop thinking ahead on every front! Being as simple as – People may scream that it is high time for you to continue and suggest to give up, circumstances may shout where you feel like that is all you can do but one single thought from your heart whispering to you in the lowest voice possible can get you new rays of hope. Smiling through all once if you trust that inner voice you might as well have a cake walk through all backbreaking situations!
Just sit back and think on this quote and start a journey of self-motivation!
Do you get fed up with every new problem your child draws to you with every new sun rise and sun set?! Or are you mentally harassed with all complains from the school or signing the ill remarks and visiting the school for your child more often then one visits the temple/church!?
Children – many believe that children are god’s gift. Then why do their problems become a tedious task to handle! As a parent, you indeed should take this situation as an opportunity where you can help your child to come out the difficulty and stand better than before. The next time your child has some issues which cannot be figured out at his end, instead of simply grumbling or comparing in two siblings and demonstrating how one is inferior to the other, take a pause and think on it. The young minds are more keen observers than the adult brains. So, take that unpleasant situation as an opportunity to build in your relationship to better standards. Running away from the situation by pushing the things off to your spouse or some other person will only ruin your image in your child’s mind. They observe your actions as well as the reactions you give them when they need your help and that is what you develop on their minds. That is the way you develop their personality. Many of you still may not be convinced by this discussion so far, so let us take a business example a simple reason being that in the fast-changing world. Trade is the only word which the illiterates are also literate in. You have a high revenue generating client of yours but at the same time is too irritating in terms of a thousand queries! Do you skip off or try grumbling over on him! Not at all. Then how can your children, the biggest assets of your personal balance sheets be an irritation when they have queries or need your help in understanding their own weak points!
Parents, a thought on this is surely needed! Do think! You are the potters of your little pots. Shape them with a little extra understanding and be there behind when they need a support and belief that you will hold them back if they fall.
It is something like we promise ourselves to follow it at least a year long, which after a week comes to be like – I will follow it as far as possible and after 15 days happens to be like – may be next year!
But I have heard someone saying – If you speak out your wishes to someone! You develop an unsaid commitment sort of thing. Something like “I need to do this because I have announced it to out” kind of pressure which may help you achieve your targets at times when you do not feel like accomplishing them!
So let us all share a few of them with each other.
Well, everyone must have made a few of them! And I would love to know them for sure! You can ping me on hangouts or Instagram or even leave them down in comments!
So, everyone one of us is gifted with this beautiful gift of 365 new days and thousands of opportunities rushing in to make your life more beautiful than before!
Wishing everyone loads of smiles, success, joys and happiness this year! With this I would also wish you to have the strength to fight every difficult situation which will be testing you this year!
Well, everyone might have made a few resolutions, if not in black and white atleast you must have thought it for sure! I would just like to add a single line of three words to all of that list of to-do-things or must achieve targets in that list of yours! JUST DO IT!
Yes! If you dared to think of it means you have the potential to do it! Did you write in your goals that you wanna fly like a bird or something like you wanna walk on water? Of course, not right? SO that is it, if you have genuinely written something in your targets for the upcoming year, it means either consciously or sub consciously you know that, yes, I can do this!
So, let the year be like – I will do it! Come what may, even if you feel rejected, down or something like “will it be possible?” let your inner self shout out as loud to you as possible – JUST DO IT!
This was a very innocent question I asked my Maa every single time from the time I started fasting on Chaturthi! – “Maa, why is it called Angarki Chaturthi and what is so special about it?” And she would reply when chaturthi falls on Tuesday it is Angarki!
Finally after nearly 7-8 years of Chaturthi I come to know the entire story of Angarki Chaturthi!
So Angarak literally means “red like burned coal”
So Angarak was son of Mother Earth and Rishi Bhardwaj who was great devotee of Lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha was impressed by Anagarak’s devotion and he asked him to express a wish which Ganesha could accomplish!
Angarak promptly replied – that he wanted his name to be associated with Bappa forever, and there it goes Ganesha granted him a wish that every chaturthi that falls on Tuesday will be named as Angarki Chaturthi
So to all the Bappa fans – Happy Angarki!

It is that part of the year where I miss my school days! Being in an convent school where we had sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers and friends – it was a perfect family at school. Today after nearly 6 years that schooling is done I do miss that “Christmas play” , The Santa, that crib decoration competition, every year’s birth story of Baby Jesus! Oh My God those carols and jingles were boring at that time but now even when I accidentally hear one of them it makes me feel so blessed being part of Stella Maris High School!
And yeah! It would be most wonderful gift of Santa if we could have a get-together – a reunion of school friends in those school premises with all those teachers who once pulled our ears and made us what we are today!
Christmas – is thanksgiving was what one of my teacher said is school, saying thank you does not change the scenario but it does make the person feel special and recognized!
So this Christmas I heartily thank all those school mates, the teaching as well as non teaching staff and each and every person who made school life a wonderful memory for lifetime!!
