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.
2021: Knock, Knock!
2020: Who is there?
2020: Ohhhh 2021! Where were you all this while…you know how long you took to bring back the smile?
2021: Smile, what do you mean?
2020: People hate me here and everywhere, they want me to just disappear!
2021: Disappear, you mean Go Away? But they are the ones who welcomed you with all their heart on the New years day?
2020: Yes, they did! But now they wish and pray for me to just be over and welcome YOU to take over.
2021: But what did you do all this while that everyone wants you to exile?
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.
Every day is a new dayHave 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?
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.
Happy Karwa Chauth
I can’t keep calm, its Karwa Chauth! Yeah, you got me right, we are just a few days away from the D day and the excitement has started to build up. Family traditions, get-togethers, sumptuous meals, gifts, rituals, traditions, beliefs and so on. Amongst all the festivals, my personal favourite is Karwa Chauth. A beautiful way to celebrate a woman! More than celebrating it for the long life of our beloved husband, we celebrate a woman. A woman who is born with an eternal power to protect herself and also protect others. The excitement of this festival is unmatchable with others.
