Everyone need a change from daily monotonous routines. Summer vacation are best time to give  break to that too. Granny’s house always the first on the list to visit in summer vacations.  Nowadays children enjoy less as compared to our time. Now children are more addictive to gadgets.

by Gurjeet Chhabra

I would like thank Yogita Amit joshi from www.directingdreams.com for  introducing me. She is master of rhythms as she is poet, friendly and helping buddy and of course a supermom

Life is full of challenges what I understood till date. Nothing can be achieved unless you dare / fight/struggle for it. Going back to memory lanes when circumstances were not in my favour  . I belong to conservative family, where my dad cares more of society than kids and my mom care more of kids than society but she never dared to go against her husband.

I belong to a family where girl birth considered as curse. My mom has to hear a lot because of two girls birth.  However my childhood passed and  settle in Delhi after my brother birth but life was not easy for me. Daring to speak to my father for my wish,desire was not easy. I want to study more but my grandparents want me to marry after 12th class. I convinced my dad for higher studies but he took a promise that I will not argue when marriage proposal of a less educated guy come. I too agree because I want to do anything for my wish.

Second great task was to do job. I want to fly I want to be independent . Again my father hardcore in his decision  no job as in our caste no girl do job. I went on hunger strike and again I convinced my father by saying that after marriage if I need to do job what I will do? I have no experience then my father agreed to it. It was a very tough phase . My father does not allow us to go out after 7pm . He use to sit on stairs when I came home a bit late .I gave interview in central school and then got a job as computer teacher that day my father was very proud of me.

The toughest phase was when I have to dare to speak to my father regarding my love. I swear it was not easy. Love marriage is big Havoc in my family as my masi love marriage was not successful and then it was a shame thing for a girl and family. But it seems like I have decided to break all barriers.

I was not able to gather guts and talk to father where as my love keep on boosting me to talk to my father. When I dare to talk to father I have taken sleeping pills ,I do not know what goes in my mind. I know it is not right. My father seem strict but he loves me a lot. He can read my face , something is wrong or I am hiding something. I does not came out for a day from my room . My father came to my room ask what is wrong. Then I dare to share  my heart out ,shown him photo of my love who is my hubby now. Told him about my love, profession, house, caste. He does not reply and leave my room saying complete your studies. I was in dilemma to consider his silence as yes or no. I have to struggle for 3 years to make my father agree . We can run and marry but we never thought to be a reason of shake to our patents. My daring step has open path for my siblings . They do not face problems as I did because after me my parents are happy with my decisions and I am happy in my married life.

My all story revolve around my father . Whenever I take  a dare to fulfill my dreams , my father too take a dare to convince his parents. Father always bow to fulfill my dreams . Dare a thon is between father and daughter . Both of us keep on taking dare challenges for good. We both dare to speaks our heart out. No he is no more but he was happy to see me settle happy and successful.

I can say nothing can be achieve without daring to take new path. Success and failure depends on our destiny. It’s my life and I dare to live my life as I want. No regrets for anything till now.

My hubby is my strength who support me in my decisions

Dare-a-thon station stoppage is now on Pradnya Salve station from  http://mummyingainteasy.com  who is adorable mom , make your life easy with her parenting tips and article.

Hi friends , It’s time for summer sun and fun!

In summer and its become a task for me to find right summer camp. In fact even before holidays I started collecting pamphlets and kept an eye on hoardings so I can select the right one for my kid.
I do not want my kid to get bore in their happy holidays and also feel to spare them from screens of phone, TV’s etc.
I feel summer camp is best thing where kids are engaging in activities, explore more, learn more , make new friends, But It sound fun for kids but not for parents as it become a exercise to select the right summer camp, staying safe, and preventing summer brain drain.

Looking for some fun summer day activities for your kids? Well take a break!

Recently I visited Pacific mall , this line strike in my mind  “Summertime fun comes in all shapes and sizes” I was amuse by  the new concept of Airbus there. A huge Airbus with 13 feet height & 42 feet width has landed at the Pacific Mall. Pacific Mall Kids Summer Camp promises to be even more fun filled and exciting. Airbus is load with full of fun and creative activities . There is no space for boredom here.

Great initiative by pacific mall who spread smile on Chahat special school kids.“Chahat Special School” inaugurated this month-long workshop and cake cutting ceremony added more happiness among kids. They enjoyed a lot in Pacific Airbus too


Even my kids enjoy Aero modelling . The staff was so friendly and helping . They have taught each step very easily and repeatedly.

Reality can be hard to digest, but the truth of the hour is that we, as a society, have become extremely money-minded. No matter what the issue at hand is, we naturally tend to look at it through cash-tinted glasses! But this kind of blatant materialism is sadly doing us more harm than good.

Gone are the days when the eagerness to help out a fellowman sprouted put of genuine sympathy and concern. It’s “What am I going to get from it” psychology that is doing rounds nowadays.

Images via: Photopin

This selfish mentality is best reflected in our buying patterns. We want everything out there for ourselves. We see the utility in every knick-knack that is presented to our eyes, and in most situations, end up impulsively buying it out irrespective of its actual worth.

While we sit amidst all our materialistic gizmos and novelties, we do feel happy, of course. Unfortunately, this kind of happiness is very short lived and ends the moment something fancier catches our eye!

It’s time we started to invest ourselves into creating long-lasting happiness. Things that would actually make us content, rather than simply making us feel falsely proud of our possessions.

If for a moment, we could close our eyes and think deeply, we’ll realize that true joy doesn’t even come from things!

It comes from experiences.

It is the experiences in our lives that make it worth the struggle. The joy of getting your first salary, good times spent in the company of good friends, special moments with your dearly beloved, investing in big-ticket items like a home, taking your parents on a vacation, etc . These are what make life beautiful, and not clothes, or phones, or furniture.

I too am guilty when it comes to giving into this rat race of owning and showing off! But, I’ve learned my lesson.

There was one time when I only cared about my comforts. Come salary day, and I would be busy shopping online or in malls hunting for the next best thing to spend my money on. There was no time for family or friends; it was all about me, me and me, and all my things!

But I’m not like that anymore! Here are some tried and tested personal tips that helped me become a better person again:

Let Go Of The Materialism

Just drop it cause it’s that bad!

Images via : Photopin

Materialistic things are things at best! You buy a dress today, tomorrow you’ll forget all about it when you get a newer one. So, just let go of this unhealthy desire to buy everything that you can.

Discover Better Alternatives 

Instead of giving in to your materialistic instinct of ownership, learn how to #SmartlyOwn things. If you like to live a comfortable life but don’t want to be put down with the burdens of ownership, opt for  #SubscriptionLifestyle.

Let’s start with your home first! Do you really have to invest in something as basic as home furniture to find happiness? If you’re a practical person, then your answer should be no!

Innovative companies like rentomojo.com allow you to get furniture and home appliances on affordable rent for a comfortable rent term. These kinds of arrangements are great, as they not only satisfy your actual needs but also save you from guilt and financial drain.

Live For The Experiences

Make life more happening with moments of togetherness and bonding with your dear ones. Meet new people, listen to their stories, discover new places, click a lot of fun pictures with your pets, go to an amusement park with your friends, and visit your parents often. These are what nostalgia is made of.

Just give these tips a shot for only a few months, and trust me, you’ll actually feel relieved, relaxed and happy for real, for once! Don’t forget to share in the comments below, in case you too have any priceless insights to tell the world!

Holla

Today I am going to introduce you to a new world by telling you the importance of reading. A book is a dream that you hold in your hands. Whenever you read a good book, it will either increase your knowledge imaginary power.

I began reading extra books when I was in the second grade. I use to get fascinated with the pictures and the words forming beautiful stories. I was in habit to collect the books to read them. Actually I must admit that the habit of reading is  my mom’s gift. When mom use to go to market and she ask me to stay home and then the only bribe i ask for is the story book  & she bring for me everytime. Slowly and steady family members started calling me a certified book addict.

During vacations,my goal was to read as many as book as possible. Every year I raised my goals and I feel in love with this hobby that I had developed.

You all should know that a book is a device that ignites concentration, Understanding, speaking , vocabulary, imagination and learning. It’d  be as if your brain has been upgraded. Wait, I have one liner perfect for this occasion-“Turn Off the TV and read a book. It’s called thinking outside a box”

I want to pass this habit of reading to my kids as well.

Introducing books to my kids

I have two kids and both are different in nature and interest. When my daughter was  2 year old, I introduce her to some books which were touch and feel book and first library actually a set a of mini 10 books which has  picture and words.
I always ask her to choose the book and most likely she handover me a animal book where there are animals, I use to name each animal and make sound of animal. She love the sound and want me to repeat the same. She soon learned recognizing  animals and their sound . Then we start doing rhyming. My daughter has very good catchy power  . Now a days she is fascinated with princess stories like Cinderella , Rapunzel story and princess and the pea   and after reading them she want to act a drama on them. I never stop my princess and participate too in her imagination .

Now she turn 7 years and she has  lot of stories books to read, encyclopedia to explore new world. She love reading and she keep on adding new book to her book treasure.

Story of My young babies
My son has very small attention span we have to make the reading sessions very dramatic with lots of voice modulations, different voices and actions to make the story come alive and grab his attention for a longer period. we talk and read to him in both English and Hindi so that he gets acquainted with both the languages.

 

Tips on Reading to your Baby

1. Let them choose book they want to be read , it may the book was read thousand times . its matter of their interest and liking
2. No more distraction business going around no TV,radio or mobile . its your and baby time while reading
3.Relate the story or words with real life example dog,fish,bird,bus. Talk about it that make them understand better the word and its meaning
4.Never give up your patience, we have to be calm. patience what we need more with babies and toddler as they are most distraction and cant do anything in long time span
5.Make sound and in act like story that grab their action and make the story interesting for them
6. Read the book slowly that make babies focus on the story or book

Book reading has bring so many benefit 
We often are also snuggling, and laughing and interacting in ways that we wouldn’t be otherwise. We have shared experiences and memories that are enjoyable. They have learned so many different concepts in a fun way. Each session of reading helps them pick one or two new words, gives a boost to their creativity and imagination

Please do share  your views on the post and Is it help to you in any ways?

Let’s Pass on Some Fun Privileges to Men

I’m writing this blog in honor of what it means to be a woman. I want reach out to all of you beautiful creatures.
Though there are many Privileges that i would like to pass on to men but my favourites would be:

Motherhood

Fathers play a vital role in their kids life but the bond between kid & Mother is strongest in this world.
I couldn’t imagine my day to day life without feeling that spectrum of emotion. I wish men can enjoy that feeling, bond with the child. A feeling of bringing  new life inside to this world.Its the most beautiful feeling. Enjoying baby kicks and flood of new emotions starts floating inside you. You start pampering and starts to take a little more care of yourself. The bond of those 9 months can be seen immediate after the birth, when your child doesn’t leaves you for a second . Even they will desires to accompany you in washroom-“Wherever you go We follow”.

Expressing emotions

Women can express emotion as love , anger,jealous,care and cry too. Women are more expressive than man.
Boys rarely cry its not because they are strong its because they are told to do so from their childhood.
Repress their emotions and hide their tears. When a girl cries , nobody says anything. Society taught us only mantra to raise a strong man is to teach them control their emotions as emotions make you weak.
Crying is not for a males, but yes its the great way to express emotion and your opening heart out.

Friend Request

I bet Girls gather more friend request as compared to men on social platforms.
As a Mom,MY request column shows 100 pending and  my hubby receives not much of request. Every men want attention,wish to add girl in their account. For example: There is a vast difference in comments of a girl and boy.

Smooth Experience

Ouuuchhh….dont you like smooth legs , who loves to be a jungle bear all the time.WAx it men.
Even our kids hate my hubby’s beard, he pricks his beard on our face that make my one year old cry & run to mummy.

 

Shopping

Women have more options than men do.  Don’t you agree? This is common dialogue of my hubby. Of course we have lot of option whether it may be of clothing, accessories,purse,footwear,household items. Really and we can’t stick to one thing either,we love variety. We are fashionista ,stylish and trendsetter too.

Feminism
Being Feminine is beautiful  in itself . ‘F’ for Female,famous ,flaunt,fascinating,figure  what not in Feminism. God has gifted beautiful body and every men keen to set its eye to adore that beauty. Women is God’s master piece.

This blog post is a part of #Womensdayblogparty
I’d like to thank Bhakti for introducing me. Read her post for this blog party here  themomflair.com and here is her Instagram link https://www.instagram.com/the_momflair/ Also do go to my friend Surbhi blog post  who  is a mom of two kids, who is trying to teach them to live without a TV at home.
