I want my kid to obey me.

She has a voice and she believes that she is capable to decide good and bad for herself. She has a power to make choice and say ‘NO’. I have a powerful kid to deal with. And this explains why my parenthood is struggling.

Am I a small potato expanding like ginger?

I am a small potato and I have every possibility of growing into a decent, big Yukon Gold potato. But I am growing and expanding like a ginger –disproportionate? Is holistic growth that difficult to attain? I work with focus on goals- means my efforts and consciousness work as spotlight on the goal and leaving…

I am a victim.

Experts say it takes 21 days to form any habit and afterwards, the more you practice more permanent part of you that habit becomes. I am wailing for past 11 years now. Has it become my habit? Habit of wailing about a single person and a single reason, day and night. I was in a…

My champions

I was chopping vegetables for dinner, when my dear hubby said “why so finely chopped veg? They will anyway get cooked.” Long back, in my hostel days, my roomie used to be on fast on every Monday. And hence to develop hunger immunity, she used to have Maggi on every Sunday around 11:40 PM. I…

I am scared to dance

All of a sudden, all the calmness vanished, when my little daughter exhibited the same trait “FEAR of public reactions”. I feel like I am spinning my wheels and going in circles?

I am google obsessed, are you too?

I am intelligent, qualified, and capable, but when it comes to search for something or anything as simple as ‘what is home’ I end up typing the question on google search bar. And google is ever ready with loads of pages to help me out. Today, I want to know the reasons for this behavior….

Am I a Flop or Successful parent?

Most of the times, I come across parenting articles about successful parenting and flop parenting. Successful parenting: when kids turn out better versions of parents, and Flop parenting: when kids demean their parents in terms of traits they own. This is amazing how kids take centre stage in our world and we become obsessed with…

Finally, I know why I blog.

I am a blogger and I find blogging pretty cool and amazing. Yesterday, I had a conversation with someone, let’s say ‘Ms. A’, in my neighborhood. I would like to present a small piece from that conversation. Ms. A – Now your kid has grown up and her school hours are extended, why don’t you…

Age with grace in a youth obsessed culture

I made a trip to my parents place, recently. After a long time, I got a chance to see them closely and I was surprised to notice that they are growing old much faster. Presently, my in laws are here and they are growing old too. These all old people in my family belong to…

Shh! That’s a bad word

I have spent my childhood and teenage in Lucknow, the city of ‘Nawabs’ and ‘Tahjeeb’. In Lucknow, even the fights are done using very decent language. I address others as ‘aap’ and refer myself as ‘hum’.
