the memorable trip.

Hello everyone.

I hope you’re doing well.

“Family is not an important thing, it is everything”.

A little throwback trip is on my desk to pen down today and I really hope you enjoy reading it.

I am the excited kid on the candy store when there is planning on a trip. This was a family staycations at 2 cities. This trip was with my in-laws and I wonder why they can’t be called a family instead.

The trip was just after Eid and the level of excitement for Eid was doubled. I’ve always loved big fat family for everything from the throwback childhood stories, the food sharing, the laughs and giggles ensuring a great time.

This was our first official trip together as a family and everyone was really looking forward to a refreshing trip. We decided the destination to be a hill station and the first place that shows up on Google is the one and only OOTY.

One major thing that we terribly missed is traveling together in one huge vehicle instead we were split into 3 different cars. We did not have any plans for sightseeing because our sole intention was to have great family time with a great looking Ooty view. We had decided to homestay this time to get the utmost privacy.

We were extremely tired because as we entered the city of Ooty the crowd and the traffic were on the next level. It’s a 7 hrs drive from Bangalore so imagine the tiredness. Plus we were desperate to just reach the destination and doze off for a while.

As we reached the destination the first turn off of this trip, presenting the not so well maintained HOMESTAY. Sometimes I really wish I don’t rely on Google because dearest Google had some awesome reviews of the property and also a 4.8-star rating! The property didn’t have a great view, maintenance was poor but it was a huge house.

Imagine the level of disappointment. It took all of us a while to gulp that in. but having a great company made us feel better. We started joking about the expectation-reality factor and laughed hard. Sooner I realized that disappointment of the stay was overtaken by the loud laughs and jokes in the weighing scale. We decided upon sightseeing to get the feel and vibe of the city.

We were residing near the famous botanical garden so we walked off to see the place. Presenting the second turn off of this trip THE CROWD. I cannot even begin to explain how overcrowded it was that day. We reached late, the gates of the botanical garden were closed and the crowd outside was head to head crowd.

We realized this much later the reason for over crowd was because one it was a long weekend, two it was just after Eid and three the small city. We didn’t have a great experience with the food either. The food was pathetic, I really don’t know if I should blame the restaurant or the crowd.

The third, the final, the most tiring turn off of this trip THE TERRIFIC TRAFFIC. Ooty is such a small city and the roads were designed according to the population there. Now when the crowd is numerous visualize the traffic. It was bumper to bumper and slow moving traffic. We were stuck in the same place for hours. We could literally see the traffic from the top of the hillside to all the way down since most of the roads in Ooty are spiral. The traffic seemed endless. It took one hour to cover a 15 min drive. As we were exiting the city in every tourist spot there was a huge queue of vehicles.

We were really hoping to have a great stay at least at our second destination because we have had enough of it and we did have a great time at the destination 2 Alhamdulillah!

This trip is one of the most memorable trips for me not because of the turn offs but because of the company. If we hadn’t had a great company throughout, we would definitely have had a nightmare at the end of this trip. Even with all the turn offs we did enjoy and always looked for the positive sides of this trip.

It’s always important to be with likeminded people. The positive vibes are the most essentials in life and to be around with people with positive minds and vibes is a blessing in itself. When someone felt low there was another cheering up and that’s how we sailed through this trip.

The main motive for me to write about this trip is

We can’t really access/control on what/how the trip is going to be, but the fact how you are going to accept the reality is LIFE.

Accepting reality with a positive mind is wise and a great insight into life.

Choose to be happy over anything else.

That’s it for now guys.

Until we meet again,

Stick around.

the last days of Ramadan.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re doing well.

We are right now witnessing the blessed month of Ramadan. The month of Ramadan gets immense blessings in our lives. We do oblige fasting in this month and attain utmost rewards from Allah. I personally believe that Ramadan cleanses our souls to worship Allah better.

We do offer Salah (prayer), we fast the whole month, we read Quran, we give charity, we stay up night for night prayers in this month of Ramadan because we of course do not want to miss on anything because Allah has promised to answer our duas ( prayer).

But we all know we are already halfway through Ramadan. There are hardly few days for the last ten nights. If you’ve still not happy with the first 15 days of Ramadan lets make the next 15 the most engaging one in shaa Allah.

 

  1. Salah (prayer)

We must fix our Salah at the earliest. Salah is one of the main pillars of Islam and in this month of Ramadan work on your salah. Pray the 5 obligatory Salah on time without missing any. Pray taraweeh, pray tahajjud.

Ramadan comes and changes our schedule and also the level of imaan. So this Ramadan change yourself for the good

2.Quran- reciting, listening and translation.

Quran the guidance to living a life according to the will of Allah. It’s been a practice in my family to complete the Quran in this holy month. My mom precisely used to ask to recite the Quran daily so that by the end of the month we complete the whole book of Quran. If you’ve not yet started reciting Quran it’s never late, you still have few days left until the Ramadan ends.

Listening to Quran is one of the easiest way to engage. Let there be Quran playing in the background when you’re busy doing house chores, cooking etc.

Also read the translation to understand Quran better

3.Good deeds.

Increase the good deeds especially in the month of Ramadan. As I mentioned earlier the reward from Allah is immense and unimaginable. It is not how big the deeds are it purely your intention and being consistent in it. Do it for the sake of Allah and not for the sake of showing off to the people.

The good deeds and your good intention may take you to the Jannah (paradise).

4.dua.

Allah says in the quran

“Call upon me and I will respond to you”.

We all have a long list of duas. If you are someone like me who forgets halfway or forgets very important dua to be made, then it’s always better to make a list of duas so that you do not forget anything and anyone. The wants of a human being is unlimited is something we learnt in economics. If the one desire is fulfilled we have another 5 waiting to be fulfilled. But Allah never gets tired listening to the countless duas we seek.

Remember to make dua for yourself, your spouse, your parents, your in-laws, your children, your grandparents, your cousins, your family, your friends, the ones who are sick, the ones who are no longer with us and to the whole world suffering from hunger or poverty.

5.rest.

Do not go 24*7 in the last ten days. Rest is also as important as anything else because when you rest well you could worship Allah more efficiently and more heartily. But that doesn’t mean you sleep the whole day and stay up the whole night. Laylatul qadr is promised in one of the last ten nights. It’s better than thousand months. So you really don’t want to miss it right?

 

That’s it for now guys.

Make the best use of the remaining days of Ramadan because we are never promised another Ramadan next year.

Make the best use of the last ten days as well.

 

“Whoever spends the night of laylat al-qadr in prayer out of faith and seeking reward all his previous sins will be forgiven”

 

Until we meet again,

Stick around.

life update ’19.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re doing well.

Loooooooooooooooong time so see huh?

(Please consider the letter ‘O’ in the previous sentence as a level of excitement)

Why excitement you ask? Of course I am writing a blog after so long. Also the energy level is 100% right now since I am writing this early in the morning. I’ve always been a morning person and super hyper in the morning. I alone know how it feels to go back to sleep after the suhoor (a meal had before the dawn when you fast in the month of Ramadan).

Today’s blog is just a small update on why was I missing here. The month of April was no less than a machine run. It was a power packed month with a lot of travel, family visits and my domain name decides to expire. Now when it comes to technical stuff I rather quit but leaning technical terms is never in my book of dictionary.

I was a confused head and had no idea where to turn my head. Also for the fact my blogs traffic dropped like crazy. It was all in one go and I kind of felt very disappointing. I’ve never been a person who needs motivation to write blogs but at the moment I needed some. I believe Experimented and experienced for the self-realization. That’s the reason I knew I should take a break. Its totally fine to take break in life because quitting is never an option.

I don’t earn from my blogs yet but the fact that I wasn’t regular and consistent putting content here, kind of ached my heart. Social media is a great influencer. It can give you motivation to touch sky or demotivate enough to lose hope. It is your call how you want to take it.

Initially when I started blogging I kind of had a twin side towards this platform. I was doubting whether it is okay to write blogs, be a social media influencer or endorse brands for collaboration. There was always a debate happening inside me to do or not to. There was obviously no win.

but, Alhamdulillah there was a turning point.

I now believe that this is my work and until I am doing it the right way without hurting the community guidelines that I have set upon myself, I am in the right path. There’s no looking back.

Life is like a see saw. It goes up and down. You are all happy in the air when your side of the see saw goes up. You see the sky, you see your dreams, and you want to stay up forever.

Then wussh goes the see saw, alas! You are on the ground. You feel disappointed, you feel low, you feel there is no way, you feel like quitting, you see the opposite person enjoying the heights.

That’s exactly life. If you can enjoy up in the air why not when the see saw hits the ground. Trust me after the night comes the beautiful day.

Life isn’t guaranteed. Life gives opportunity, but it’s you who decide which suits best for you. Life gives dreams, but it’s you who make the dream meet the reality.

That’s it guys!

I hope this bought at least a slight positives in your life. It surely did for me and hoping the same for you.

That’s it for now.

Until we meet again,

Stick around.

The weight loss drama.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re doing well.

I’ve always loved reading, whenever I had some time in hand i read an article in a newspaper, in my WhatsApp group or even in a magazine at reception desk. My love for reading took a step ahead in my pregnancy. I was at moms and obviously I wasn’t allowed to do a lot of house chores and I was left with the only option to read articles. i kept a close track on the weekly pregnancy changes in body. Sometimes my gynecologist was very much astonished to see me asking for details that no patient ask.

I also felt that post pregnancy weight loss articles had a lot of drama than the articles I read about pregnancy. There were tips, tricks, food habits, gym, yoga, GREEN TEA!

I saw few people coming up to me and politely saying that I’ve put on weight! ‘Wow as if I dint know that already and thank you for making me feel worse!!’ Did I also mention that this was said just after a month of my baby’s arrival? I don’t understand the concept where in everyone wants a slim and good-looking wife, a baby after 1 or 2 years of marriage and immediately after the pregnancy the wife should look all glammed up. If a baby takes 9 months don’t expect a woman to get to her pre pregnancy weight overnight.

There are 100 more things happening in her life. The new baby, mood swings, hormonal changes in the body, the severe pain, advises, dos and don’ts etc. she’s already having a tough time and it’s not a good idea to make her feel worse about her weight.

According to me we learn about weight loss only after the pregnancy because before that we dint face an issue of weight. Most of the girls or women are in a good happy weight before pregnancy and what happens right after pregnancy is that you start researching about the weight loss as a first timer. So there are different methods of losing weight and as you are the first timer you may not really know which one suits well for your body.

The first 6 months of baby and mother is crucial. The baby needs utmost care and attention at this particular time. So as a first timer it’s very risky to experiment with your body or diet at this stage.

Do not come under anybody’s pressure to lose weight especially for the first 6 months, stress will not make you lose weight.

All rights reserved exclusively for YOU!

Another major thing I want to disclose here is that LOVE YOUR BODY.

Make a promise to yourself to take care of your body because as I said earlier it’s your right.

Get fitter not because everyone’s asking you to,

But for yourself.

Stick to your roots. Having healthy homemade food, avoiding excess sugar and junk itself makes a lot of difference.

It’s always a good feeling to fit into your old clothes.

Most of the women face knee and joint pain in their mid-40s and it’s majorly because of the weight. If we observe closely the large amount of people who walk/jog in the park are uncle and aunties.

It’s obviously a good feeling of that sight but it’s a big lesson for us that taking care of our body at the right time is an important factor.

Let’s not just wait until our doctors’ advice to do some sort of exercise rather be fit and expect an unexpected compliment!

Don’t lose hope, day one or one day the call is yours!

There is always a person who cheers and motivates

And one such is my better half!

Alhamdulillah ❤️

I believe in motivation and I hope this serves as one.

That’s it for now guys.

Until we meet again,

Stick around.

An early mother.

Hello everybody

Hope you’re doing great.

A topic that i wanted to pen down here since a long time but never attempted it for the short of words I had towards it.

The 20 years old I was confident enough to go through labor and responsible enough to up bring a child. The people here on social media come to me with questions like why?

Can I please tell them they are no answers for your WHY’s?

Why it is a mother’s age even a factor to determine if she can have a baby?

A mother is born when a child is given birth. A women knows her responsibility as soon as she knows there is another life inside her body. Age is just the number. If a mother can go through the hardest and painful thing called LABOR, you’re not aware of the power she has inside her.

There is nothing like a perfect age to get pregnant and have a baby. If its 18 or 35, unless your body is in a good healthy condition you are good to go. It’s actually your body, your mind and your heart which should be ready to accept the challenge coming ahead. Upbringing a child is not everyone’s cup of tea. That’s why most of the time its women who sacrifice their dream job, their leisure, their sound sleep to give time and attention to their child.

We women are born with a super power to grow a baby inside us. That is the miracle of god and no women will ever accept the fact that it’s an easy-going process. It takes enough courage to even think about it. An example of courage,

In India the average children in a family is usually two. So imagine when a mother gives birth to the first one she knows very clearly the pain she goes through yet again she becomes mother for the second time without even giving a thought of the pain she went through with the first one.

If the switch board has got some electric issues and you touch it by mistakenly, would you mind to touch the electric shock again? Well, that’s what happens when a mother goes through the labor for the second time. Yet she forgets the pain when the tiny baby is wrapped around her arms.

That’s how beautiful a women’s heart is.

The society thinks she is weak, her sole responsibility is to take care of the house or the kids, and she has no rights to give her opinion on any issues.

Every women deserves to be treated well. There are stay at home mums(sahm), working mum, mompreneur, mom who work at home, women who work late, women who work very early, women in the fields, women flying a plane etc. we see women in all fields these days and it is a proud moment for a nation like India where a woman was kept out of the house for the five days every month.

“A women is like a tea bag you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water”

The quote explains it all.

So ladies, you’re already doing a fab job.

As a mother, as a sister, as a wife, as a daughter

AS A WOMAN.

No one knows what is good for you except your creator alone.

Trust your instincts and follow your dream.

(a woman will never forget her responsibility of taking care her family)

Being a housewife.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re having an amazing day.

We women are born multitaskers and multitasking gets a promotion when you become a housewife. A women who stays at home after she is married is called a housewife.

I always believed that being a housewife didn’t contribute as an important factor in life. I felt they are just like my mother or my aunt or anyone who is married and takes care of the house, whats the big deal I imagined.

I’ve been married since 2013 and I am a housewife since 5 years. I so regret the imagination that I did in the previous paragraph about housewives when I was younger of course. I deeply know and believe that no one can underestimate the things a housewife can do!

Taking care of the house, kids and the HUSBAND is not an easy task. Lets start with the main responsibility, THE HOUSE.

From the time I get up from the bed responsibility starts hitting right away. To make up the bed, the perfect tea, the breakfast, the lunch that has to be packed(all from scratch), the dirty dishes, the laundry( washing, drying, and sorting ), cleaning, dusting, moping, cleaning the bathrooms etc! The words are shorter and quicker but the actual task keeps me occupied for the first half of my day. There is no day off where I can skip any one of the above. Even if I skip one or two there is nothing called a holiday in a housewife’s life.

The second responsibility the child/children. Taking care of your kid is even more complicated than the house chores. They are very tricky to handle. They can either wake up in a good mood in the morning or a cranky mood that runs throughout the day. The demands that they make for food is unpredictable. When you don’t have dosa batter in the refrigerator that day they decide to have dosas. When the bread expires that’s when they want a sandwich. The oranges that were there in stock and are getting rotten nobody cares to eat it because it looks dirty. Imagine convincing your child in these situations and that’s how a housewife’s life is when it comes to taking care of them. The tantrum they throw when they don’t want a shower or a desired dress after the shower and taking them to bed for afternoon naps is something that every housewife will relate.

The third and the most important factor for a housewife is to take care of her HUSBAND. He can come home with a grumpy face or a happy face. If he comes home in a grumpy face and youre PMSing that day I am sure youll end up having a big fight. If he comes back from work with a happy face then you may go out for dinner that night. A hungry husband is forever angry. I’ve literally gone through this experience of hungry and angry husband. If they don’t like a particular food a housewife will end up not making it even if that particular food is her absolute favorite.

From taking that stain from his favorite shirt to keeping his wardrobe organized, the responsibility is mine (a housewife).

So a housewife is 24*7 on duty where in there will be guests coming over without prior notice, a kid can fall sick, a husband may have stress at work, cooking is necessary for survival, mood swings of women etc.

Yet another common factor in a life of a housewife is “staying at moms”. No words can explain how it feels when you’re going to your mums and the pleasure that’s achieved has no explanation. That’s the only time I believe when a housewife takes a break.

A housewife shouldn’t be considered minor than any working woman. She has chosen to be a housewife for the sake of her family. It’s high time to respect and appreciate for the work she does!

A woman can take care of anyone and everything except for herself. I think self-care is a must in a women’s life in general. Pamper yourself, order some good food, drink plenty of water, be fit, buy something for yourself, wear good clothes and be happy.

Always remember,

Happiness is a choice.

That’s it for now guys,

Until we meet again

My Instagram life.

Hello everyone.

Hope you’re doing well.

Yet another interesting topic of my life.

Being an extreme introvert and having an Instagram profile with 2000 followers is in itself a big deal. Without further delay lets just flip to my first page of my Instagram life.

I was following a lot of bloggers then, who had their own website where they would write something. So when I first decided to write blogs I did open my new page on WordPress and changed my personal Instagram account to a public profile. With a lot of researches online and without any human help! And thus joined the tribe. I remember I had almost 300 followers then and when I changed my profile to a public account my followers list increased to 450. So basically I started with 450 followers. And I actually thought I don’t have to do much and waited for a 1000 followers. It took me a year to complete 2000 followers, like how silly was I!😜

Little did I knew what was coming my way? It took me quite a time to understand Instagram.

There is engagement, there are numerous giveaway to increase followers, there is profile visits, there are insights, there are campaigns, collaborations and Instagram suggests the best time to post, best day to post and what not! Not to forget INSTAGRAM ALGORITHIM. I never knew about this, I thought a blogger has to write blogs, post few pictures, post stories and done! I don’t have words to explain there is so much more to it.

What I really enjoyed about Instagram then is about the collaboration that I did with few brands and felt really good that the brands trusts my work. And who doesn’t love hampers and gifts right? A did get a slight work pressure from the brands even before the deadlines. And later on whenever there were collaboration I was so worried that I started focusing and stressing more whether I will be able to satisfy the brand with my work. I did quite well with all of the collaboration, Alhamdulillah.

I started loving instagram and took all kinds of effort to keep my instagram feed good-looking! I loved the responses I got from my followers about my blogs and that really motivated. I had a lot of friends and family who checked on me on a regular basis, I must say I had an amazing bunch of people in my life. Also there were a few of my fellow bloggers whom I would always look up to whenever I had to clear my mind about anything related to social media or my blogs. I am forever grateful to those friends of mine whom I’ve never met in real life but plays a prominent role.

Another major important thing about my instagram life is about my constant supporter and a critic that I always look up to, my better half. The first glimpse of my post that goes up in the grid, every blog that I publish, the collaboration posts and stories are closely approved by him. He is the invisible person for all my social affairs. Alhamdulillah!

The main motive for me to be active on instagram is to grow my audience. I know instagram is not permanent until there is some other app taking over it like that of orkut or facebook. I am more concerned and determined about my website and that’s what matters the most for me. In order to grow my audience I need to promote my blogs through instagram and facebook.

Sometimes I feel that people already assume that you’re happy with the flow of Instagram and often forget to ask how am I doing! Because they see my social media updates and believe it!

To be real honest whatever I share ,that is not what’s actually happening in my real life. It’s just 1/4th of it!🙂

If you see a picture of a delicious food that I post don’t be fooled, may be that’s the old picture. I may post it because I miss it! I still feel good whenever I am not judged on the basis of my Instagram story! I love sharing positivity through my profile even I am in the worst mood. And believe me that is more important!

It’s sometimes okay to ask how am I doing and trust me I’ll happily answer!

I hope all goes well with my intentions in shaa allah(if allah wills)

If you feel like doing a little help for me

Introduce my instagram page and my blogs to your friends and family.

Since my niche is more of women stuff I’ll be glad to have more of female followers in the list!

That’s it for now guys,

Until we meet again

Log kya kahenge.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re doing well.

One of the famous phrase I grew up hearing is log kya kahenge (what will people say). I am sure this is quite common in almost everyone’s life. I used to wonder who these “people” are that everyone wants to please. It took me quite a long time to know and understand the concept of this. It’s like we are living a life only to please them.

The other thing that go hand in hand with the above phrase is show off. Life has become a major competition where you’re competing with people of similar possessions. The best expensive hospitals, the best schools, best clothing, best cars, best houses etc.

i too choose the best for myself or my family, we all want best of best right? But the BEST should never turn into a show off!

We humans are never ever satisfied with whatever we have in our lives. The things you own now, was a dream few years back. But we don’t care about it, what we care is about the future plans. The more the wants are satisfies the more you ask for it.

Is the above paragraph based on economics? 🤣Well it sounded like that of a dimension law. Jokes apart that’s been life. We make life so complicated that we often forget to enjoy and believe that there’s only one life to live. For some of them life becomes stressful, complicated, depressed, sad and unhappy. When we start pleasing others that’s when life becomes unhappy.

This reminds me of a recent incident that happened in my life. Last month I had been to my native and I did get to attend a lot of weddings, family function and get together. What I started noticing is that people started asking this frequent question to me and that started bothering me a lot.

“Your daughter is already three right?

“When are u having your next baby”?

 “You should have already had your second baby by now”?

Surprisingly, these interrogating questions were asked by few people whom I met for the first time. The first few times I was asked these questions I was ignoring of course. But later on it started haunting me. I was lost in deep thoughts thinking about this.

People said,

“The 2.5 age gap is the best age difference between your kids,

“The bonding of siblings are great at this particular time,

“It’s easier to up bring 2 kids of smaller age,

“It becomes difficult once you start growing old,

“My mom will not be able to take care of me and my ‘new baby’ because even she is aging.

And a lot more.

When the suggestions are given by my family members I know it’s out of concern they have towards me and I respect it. But suggestions coming from a random person

I don’t know if all of these suggestion I got is true or false. But it made me sad. I then realized that I am losing my track and this is something that should never ever bother me.

I started thinking about few women whom I know personally and are really trying hard to have a baby. It might be the health conditions or it might be a patience test for them.

What about them?

Trust me these question are not less than a taunt.

so, Think before you speak.

On a happier note,

Let’s be happy! 😊

Let’s not make someone’s life complicated. 👍

Let’s make this place a better place to live.💕

Let’s be a better person. 😍

This is based on my experience. No offence to my dearest people who already have two or more kids 😉

That’s it for now guys.

Until we meet again,

Stick around.

Review: club Mahindra derby green, ooty.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re doing well.

It’s said in a quote that vacation are the best days of all. Sometimes when you feel depressed, worried about your daily routine and stressed days it’s your body asking you to take a break. When you go for vacation you come back with more energy and more enthusiasm, thus enjoying your work. What better than a prestigious stay in a hill station.

Recently we visited ooty and chose to stay at club Mahindra derby green. Club Mahindra needs no introduction, since it was my first experience here I thought I would give you guys the first impression of the property.

Started in 1996, the company’s flagship brand “club Mahindra holidays”, today has a fast growing customer base of over 235000 members and 50+ resorts at some of the most exotic locations in India and abroad.

This property is one of the oldest yet well maintained. The property is spread across 5 and half acres. I was pleased to see the city view and race course view from our room. It has almost 89 rooms. Since it’s an old property the structure of the room is little different from the usual ones. The room has amenities like tea/coffee maker, a microwave and other modern amenities. There is seating area for every room so that no one misses out on view outside.

The most favorite part of this property is that it is surrounded by greenery. The different flowers which has different colors will automatically bloom your days. It feels refreshing to be around the beautiful garden and sip on some hot tea. The birds chirping here is much better than the Bangalore hustle bustle. From the time you enter the gate of derby green till you exit, the property will make sure you’ll find greenery all around. At every nook and corner here will make you fall in love with the property. There are relaxing chairs and benches all over the property if at all you get bored with the same view from your room.

The hospitality here is cherry on top of the cake. Every staff working here will make certain that you’re having a great stay. The smiles are so warmth enough to make your day. From the security at the entrance gate to room service person everyone here is so kind and sweet. If there’s any kind of entertainment and fun happening around, they’ll call up individually and ask if interested. To every concern of ours they’ll find a solution.

We stayed here for 2 days so we had 2 complimentary breakfast and 1 buffet lunch here. The complimentary breakfast here had some delicious spread that one cannot resist eating. It included toast, pastries, fruits, juices, cereals, beverages, eggs etc. There is a live counter where you could ask for south Indian style hot dosas. The lunch buffet too had a vast spread. But as I was expecting biriyani for lunch I was little disappointed. There was obviously a tasty spread from north Indian to south. The food here had authentic taste of local food and we all know about the hygiene maintained here.

Overall my experience about my stay here at club Mahindra is forever locked in my memory book. Ooty is in itself a great place to visit especially from Bangalore as it the only nearest hill station. In addition if opted for a club Mahindra stay I am sure anyone’s trip is going to be fruitful and awesome.

Rating: 5/5

Value for money: 8/10.

That’s it for now guys

Until we meet again,

Stick around.

Life revolves around a circle.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re doing well.

The topic I decided to write here today is an unusual one. We all read about life, how to lead life, how to learn about life etc. I strongly believe that life revolves around a circle. The newborn in the hospital and the old man in the death-bed have a lot of similarities. To be clearer it’s like the newborn has revolved in the circle of life and met the old man at the point where he initially started.

To begin with, when I last visited Dubai with my family we were in a mall exploring. I happened to meet this very big family who were busy shopping and exploring like us!They were a group of almost 15 people including the babies and kids. They had 2 wheel chairs with an old man and woman sitting. there was 2 pram which had 2 babies sleeping on it. I still have the picture recorded on my mind.

That’s when I started noticing and finding the similarities in the old and the new.

Let’s have a brief outlook on the topic.

  • The old man has his wheel chair

The babies or the new-born have their pram.

  • the old man loses his hair or eventually end up being bald

The babies are born bald or less hair.

  • The old man loses his tooth gradually

Newborns are born toothless.

  • The old man loses his sight as he grows old

The newborn do not have a perfect sight when it’s born.

  • Sometimes the old man uses a diaper

(Health conditions)

The newborn always uses a diaper

  • The old man speaks in a shaken voice

(The speech is not clear and we end up not understanding)

The babies initially cannot speak. Thus we end up not understanding.

  • The old man always need a lot of care, attention and observation.

It’s the same with the newborns.

  • The old man is sent to old age homes

The kids are sent to nursery or school.

  • The old man does not want to go to the old age homes because he wants to stay with his children.

The kid do not want to go to the school because he/she wants to stay back with his/her parents

  • The first piece of cloth a newborn is wrapped upon is in the color WHITE.

The old man when he dies is also wrapped in the white.

The points listed here is mostly on my observation and my surroundings.

Now, why I chose to write this topic is that to deliver a message.

One, an old man acts like a child when his age number increases and as an adult it’s our responsibility to take care of our parents just like they did.

To narrate a saying,

The life of this world compared to the hereafter is as if one of you were to put his finger in the ocean and take it out again. Then compare the water remains on your finger to the water that remains in the ocean.

That’s how short the LIFE is.

Whenever I get to meet an elderly person who cannot do his basic daily chores like if the person is sick or if the person is left with no strength to do his daily essentials, like everybody else I too have a soft corner towards them. I instantly swap myself with their character and start imagining how life could be in their end. Every time I do that I realize how difficult will it be for them and deep inside I never ever want to get to that phase of life. Not because it’s a fear of death but the fear of dependency.

If a human being can do his basic chores without any help it’s a greatest blessing from the creator. We often compare and complain about things that we don’t possess.

To remind a tiny blessing you already own is that you’re reading this, with the help of your smart phone or your laptop or the desktop. There are hundreds of human who die starving.

So, in whatever position you’re in right now,

BE THANKFUL:)

Like a philosopher says;

Live life as if it’s your last day on earth.

That’s it for now guys.

Until we meet again,

Stick around.
