• An incident that changed lives of Mr. & Mrs. Gupta forever
    Diyaa | 27-Mar-2019
      Mr. and Mrs. Gupta, married for eight years now lived in a posh apartment in a Middle Eastern city. They worked hard all day in their respective fields. Neha Gupta, the wife still looked very sharp and dainty for her age at thirty five while Manoj Gupta, who was soon going to be forty, carried a tall broad image of himself. They both complimented each other in their looks as well as their professional lives. Neha worked in the same multinational company for almost a decade, now at a very high post, while Manoj was managing his well settled business of gold jewellery.   Everything looked very happy around this couple and their three and a half year old daughter Kiara. She was the apple of their eye. Kiara spent most of her time with her grandmother, Neha’s mom who lived with them too. She loved taking care of Kiara, all day with help of a nanny. She took her to the park in evenings or nearby lake for strolls while mornings she got her ready and sent her to a pre-school. Manoj had kept a dr

    Everyday I wish to do new things...  It's a very demanding wish to do something new daily...  One day just go to office and finish the whole year's work in a day... The other day pick up the travelling bag and travel across the world...  The next would be doing a continuous session of Zumba class and getting fitter in a day...  Writing so much that something new is published each day Listening to music...so many songs that it is completed in a day Finishing the entire Hogwarts mystery game, temple run in one go Finishing all the syllabus of upcoming interviews and exams in a day so that nothing remains Yet I slog ; everyday has it's routine where if you accomplish 5 goals the 6th one remains...  It's so difficult to finish everything and life is so uncertain... Yet there's hope because everyday brings new joy and hope to look at life with bigger hopes, a more rewarding future and a great career.....

    In our twenties, Fights would last for a few days.Hand written letters and Sorry scribbled on the mirror with lipstick would reinstate Peace. Thirties changed the content of Fights.Peace made way through brushing of our feet under the cotton sheet, in the middle of the night.Fights in Forties were resolved with every bite full of spicy rice she fed me with her hands. Fifties introduced Fights with Wings.They were fought on the battle ground and flew out of the house on a whim.In our Sixties, a cup of tea could restore happiness even in between a fight.Somewhere through the Seventies, we forgot what we were fighting about and gave up.How I missed Fights in our Eighties!Now, I fought mostly with God.She smiled from her photo on the wall.I made peace and went back to playing Patience.

  • Age is not a barrier!
    Jyoti | 15-Mar-2019
    It has been said that there is no age limit to learn anything. Before a few years, I enrolled myself in a music class for piano lessons. I started learning classical music and harmonium very early and continued till my primary school but afterwards I couldn't continue due to studies. Then I got busy with high school, college, job and life! So after a gap of almost 25 years, I once again started to learn. Initially it felt a bit awkward to sit between school going kids but the awkwardness disappeared after a few lessons. I could recall many things which I had learned a long way back. Music has this calming effect on me. The moment I used to enter the class, all my worries and tensions used to fly out. I used to forget everything for an hour thrice a week. The concentration required to play some beautiful piano pieces ensures that no other thought enters the mind! I enjoyed this phase for 2 years after which I couldn't continue it further. There are problems in everybody's life but these get forgotten atleas

  • The Empty seat and The Broken tooth
    Diyaa | 04-Mar-2019
    I am a ‘stay at home’ mother, according to the new mommy era. I am no more a simple housewife, that I earlier used to be. But my life still revolves around my boys as my mothers did around us. The usual house errands and chores have kept me so occupied and glued that I didn’t want to look for any other profession to satisfy me. Of course, I kept a few of my hobbies alive or vice verse. But ever since my little one was born it’s been a roller coaster ride for me. I haven’t really got any time to spend alone. While he’s off to preschool there’s always other things at home that need my quick attention. Let alone being by myself for a single whole day. I see them play together and fight like cats and dogs, yell and shout at each other. My Sundays are dedicated to their likings, my tv time is no more mine, I have gotten used to watching Peppa pig and Harry Potter with them. My meal hours are usually spent feeding three people simultaneously including myself. No matter h

  • The day I almost missed my flight!
    Jyoti | 08-Feb-2019
    It was a chilly November morning on the last day of my trip and I was ready to come back home. I had to take an early morning train from Kathgodam to Old Delhi and then a flight from Delhi to my hometown. All the bookings were confirmed, I had enough time in between and I was good to go! But as they say” if anything is to go wrong it will and you cannot do anything about it”  On the night before my journey, my host tells me that the train which I am travelling in is frequently late and it will be difficult for me to reach the airport in time. He then advises me not to take a cab and use the metro to the airport as it will be the fastest option. I listened to him and kept my options ready in case of delay. The next morning my train was on time and I was really happy that I would reach the airport in time. The train was supposed to reach Old Delhi railway station at 3.30 pm and I had a flight at 6.25 pm. I thought I had enough time! The train was running on time till 1.30 pm and after that it

    One day my heart asked one question to my mind......saying Q-Which type of sadness cannot be explained? Mind answered after sometime..... Mind says..... Ans- sadness which can never be explained is which you get from your peer(friends). When a friend breaks your trust whom you trusted the most, ditch you and hurts you and they think they are smart enough that they will be easily able to hide from you, what they are doing behind you......... So, be careful while making friends because it hurts very deeply later on when they show their other side.

    Friendship is an extremely beautiful relationship that everyone experiences. Man is a social being. Acceptance , the spirit of unity , the spirit of togetherness ,Apnapan, apnaiyat all these are so important.  But everyday isn't sunday. Sometimes you do come across some people who are rugged, selfish. All this is just for us to learn that not everyone is good ; so appreciate the good people around you.  You can't be good for everyone. People have their own perspectives. Even if being nice is your nature don't expect everyone to understand that. There are people who will take things,help, opinions but never utter a word of gratitude and some are so generous that they'll be there for you in despair and happiness And life moves on with such intense and beautiful twists and turns.... Sometimes even a stranger in a bus will help you out and sometimes even a 5 year long friend won't even speak a word such is life..

    Destiny is something mysterious. I'm saying this to define and expose the different facets of this broad spectrum term called 'destiny'.  Some people are born with a silver-spoon, some middle class, some poor. Does this have any reason at all?  As per my observations about the people around me - some experienced a beautiful life whereas some had been miserable throughout; I can't say that anyone had anything very easily but this continuous series of unfortunate events for some individuals takes a heavy toll on their brain cells, shoots blood pressure, causes stroke and so many other serious ailments. This is so unfortunate cause an individual who was young, valient , I-know- it- all , I can do it all falls prey to dependency; dependency on others is a horrible and horrific moment but destiny as one can summarize this journey of events- fortunate or unfortunate has a major role in all this.

    The journey of life is filled with fun , miseries , anguish , thrill , happiness , excitement , grief. The most exciting part of the journey is the future is unknown.  Many friends come and go in the series of life , you feel bad about losing them too but life has to move on. There are ways that seem unknown for sometime , destinations never heard of ; but life takes you where you are meant to be.  Trust the journey of life , trust fate. Everyone has a different book. No two books have the same story. There's no scope of copying in this exam because life turns out different for each one of us.  In this enthralling journey called life everyone's tested and tried. This is what makes it worth living..

    The Right Ending. I woke up feeling cranky. Rain pounding against the glass windows, bursts of thunder boom from a layer of storm clouds. Coconut trees swaying by the wind brush against the window. Alas! I was at that day, when I was going to say goodbye to my two months old job and colleagues. The contract of two months had ended. Today was the last day of my short stint there. As I drank my morning tea, I felt a headache coming on. I somehow got ready to go to this office. As the goodbye mail was dropped. People wished good luck and phone started ringing. As I thanked and spoke with them, I was packing up my belongings at the same time…the coffee mug, the water bottle etc. With a brief tenure of work and my work diary being kept in office the handover was comparatively easy. There was a lump in my throat as I spoke with few of colleagues who had become friends. With the keys handed over, I thought I was ready to go. I went to food court where I use to buy lunch at times from a Pakistani vendor. He

    There are often times when a person has to fight- fight for rights , for freedom , for passion , for pursuing what they want to innumerable fights.  A decision that might seem to be right for some must be wrong for the others.  Stereotype mentality while choosing career has got us all to a point where only some careers such as medicine and engineering or chartered accountant are considered as excellent whereas others aren't. I feel an aptitude test for choosing the right career should be made compulsory in 12 th standard so that people know what they're good at.  Skill development should be given more importance. Technical skills should be taught to students and if some people are good at artistic stuff they should be taught the marketing skills so they can display their talents.  These days people are under so much stress. Stress is creating tremendous health issues and ways to deal with stress should be taught. Do what you love to do not what others want you to ; life is too short e

    The best part about being a child is that you are willing to learn no matter what , you're ready to take risks , to try something new everyday. The real psychology behind this is that at that stage of life there's nothing to lose , no ego to take over our minds, no fear of losing the stability. As adults it gets difficult : difficult to take risks, difficult to lose things , to make mistakes. We all long for a beautiful stability in life and we long for inner peace , satisfaction. It takes courage to take new decisions , to take risks , to reach at a new levels of success each day.

    From childhood to all stages of life a father supports his children takes care of his children and loves them tremendously.  The father daughter relationship is the most special one. Dad is the hero of every daughter. The angrier the mom the better the Dad. Every small achievement of the child is celebrated by the Dad. Every father wants his daughter to have all the comforts of life. Even a little wound of the daughter hurts the father.  From applying nail paint to make-up - dad is the daughter's best model and the biggest sport too.. A lot of Laad is showered upon by dads.  Wishing all the dads a very happy father's day.
