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.

 

My kids even at home  roam around whole day with that aeroplane. This is new concept for them . Kids always love activities which are new and interesting . Summer camp of Pacific mall does all that.

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.

Holi is festival of colours , a celebration of the victory of virtue and goodness over evil. It is a colorful festival of great joy and enthusiasm. A day filled with complete mischief, fun and enjoyment. everyone is so excited to see each other colourful faces , splash water and colour on each other. But this colour bring some harmful effect on skin and hairs. sharing pre and post holi tips that help you be safe from harsh effect of colours.

TIPS FOR SAFE HOLI

PRE HOLI

SKIN
Make a mixture of Coconut oil 1 tbsp,castor oil 1 tsp and olive oil 1 tbsp and apply it all over your skin before playing Holi. apply behind the ears, between toes finger and hand fingers and other exposed areas.

Apply a sunscreen (preferably SPF 20 and above) 20 minutes before going out. Most sunscreens have built-in moisturisers but if your skin is very dry, apply sunscreen, wait for a few minutes and follow up with a moisturiser. Apply a lotion on your arms and other exposed areas too.

LIPS
Use  petroleum jelly on your lips  will work for a longer period of time.

HAIRS
Massage your hair well with oil and tie them up in a bun. This will ensure that the scalp and hair do not absorb colours too easily. In case you have short hair, apply hair gel.You can also wear a bandana.

NAIL
Drench your cuticles in olive oil so your nails do not soak up any colour. Then, use a thick coat of nail paint on the nails and put Vaseline under the nail edges.

WEAR SUNGLASSES
it sound funny that wearing sunglasses for holi . people may think you are acting bit stylish, if so let the world say so. nothing bad in go little cool with sunglasses after all it protect your eyes to colour to go in. who love to have stain near eyes that look like beat bashes.

POST HOLI
1.Avoid the use of soaps or face washes as they are alkaline in nature, they will dry your skin. Instead take pure almond oil or coconut oil and massage it on your skin. Then take damp cotton and remove the colors. Once the colors are off take a cold or lukewarm shower and after that moisturize your skin well. If your skin is dry and itchy then massage aloe vera gel before shower.

2.To wash your hair, first rinse with plenty of plain water. Then apply a mild herbal shampoo, working it into the hair with your fingers and massage the scalp gently and rinse thoroughly. Beer can be used as a last rinse. Squeeze juice of a lemon in your mug of beer and pour over your hair. Leave for a few minutes and rinse off with plain water.

 3.Sesame seed (til) oil can also help in removing the colours, apart from countering sun damage. Massage your skin with sesame oil and leave it on your skin for 15 minutes or so. While bathing, scrub the body gently with a loofah. Apply a lotion.
REGAIN YOUR BEAUTY OF SKIN 
To regain smooth, soft skin, mix 2 tbsp honey with half cup curd, add a pinch of turmeric. Apply this paste on your face, neck and arms. Leave for 20 minutes and wash off with water.

REGAIN SHINE OF YOUR HAIR

– To nourish your hair, mix 1 tbsp pure coconut oil with 1 tsp castor oil. Heat and apply on your hair. Dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the hot towel around the head, like a turban. Keep it for five minutes. Repeat towel treatment 3-4 times. Wash your hair after an hour.
