    Blessed by God, spoiled by my Husband

    Alright, this one is a special one, close to my heart. I am going to start this blog on a very positive note since it’s about me and my husband celebrating 13 years of marriage and almost 15 years of togetherness. I know he will be reading the blog and so will his friends because I am surely going to tag him on this one (wink wink!). Hence, I need to be politically correct!

    We both were fortunate enough to get hooked up by a so called ‘LOVE’ marriage ( I hope he also feels the same!). Though even after 13 years the battle is ON as to who proposed to whom but as they say, it had to happen and here WE are. Nevertheless, be it love or arrange, expectation struggles are almost the same. Isn’t it?

    The WEdding starts with WE and truly it means WE, WE as one unit, WE as one. Though I am assuming in the initial years of any ‘WEDDING’ it is all about ME. As in the questions and expectations that run into our mind now and then. Why ME and why not HIM? Why always I have to compromise and why not HIM? Why should I change my style and why not HIM and blah blah blah…..????
    So over these 13 years of togetherness things have finally moved from ‘ME’ to ‘WE’ and in fact now all attention is on ‘THEM’.

    The HAPPINESS of always being BUSY!

    I am BUSY!

    It’s been quite some time since I have come up with a new blog post. Now you might think why? And I shall come up with a  staple answer. I was quite busy hence, couldn’t get time to write or tied up with few things hence, no time off and blah blah blah…

    Are these not few run-of-the-mill replies to procrastinate things or to give a picture to the other person that we are really really swamped?

    Along these lines, here comes my long-awaited post ‘The happiness of being always busy’.

    Working around the clock and running before time is the new MANTRA of today. The Happiness of being busy, busy and busier. We all are busy going around the same circle over and over again which gives us a feeling of doing nothing. With every passing day, we strive for more and more and at times we feel lost, without direction, following the same routine and conventional life.

    Do you still have Monday morning blues?

    Monday Blues

    Sounds weird, isn’t it? With new normal and almost everyone working from home, from where do Monday morning blues comes into the picture. Well for me, it does, I have started to have Monday morning blues and that too terrible ones.

    Since pandemic has forced all of us to group together at home and work from home, the weekend still holds a very special place in my heart. Weekdays are like all hell broke loose. With a husband and two kids locked in separate rooms, clinging to their gadgets, I literally go crazy hopping around from one room to another. Mumma….mom….Anu…..is all I could hear in the morning other than the continuous lectures which go in the background to chew my mind.

    It is OKAY to not feel OKAY!

    Every day is a new day

    Have you ever experienced a few days when you just don’t feel good? I mean today is the same as yesterday but still, you feel too low, too dull, too tired to do anything. When suddenly you have this question, where am I heading, what am I doing, why am I doing and why do I not feel happy today?

    An Ode to the Men

    International Men’s Day

    Today morning I woke up to a day celebrated as International Men’s Day, 19 November. Unlike International Women’s Day for which the noise starts almost a month before, we barely get to hear anything around Men’s Day. This makes me wonder why men’s day is so under-appreciated.

    In our society, when men try to find ways to express themselves, they often are not understood. Because, they are supposed to have a certain type of “Masculine ‘ behaviour i.e. powerful, strong and someone who cannot be emotional and just cannot CRY.
