She

Weaving her nest,

She had million dreams.

Wishing on falling stars,

But there was sorrow streams.

She wished to have her dreams come true

And her eyes fell on her daughter, and she asked her “Can you?”

Her little one replied saying yes!

Overjoyed and blessed, she started preparing her for success.

The little one was born wild and didn’t settle in a cage,

History was being written and praises followed her on every page.

Beaming with success, her loved ones stood tall,

She was being celebrated and adored by all.

She was in action with her full devotion,

The goals which were clear were now overcast with mixed emotions.

History repeated itself and she was being tied for flying too high,

She was confined and beaten till she could not fly.

Her world was crashing with no signs of hope,

But she had this little trick which helped her cope.

She found a friend in the estranged land,

Who untied her and cleared the wounds beneath her hand.

With all her energy, she rose again to fly

And promised the world, that nothing is going to break her down till she dies.

Haven’t read something more beautiful than this one. Must read !

God & ManIt’s time to stop acting like you don’t deserve any better because you haven’t been feeling so great about yourself. It’s time to stop settling because you think your dreams are out of reach and it’s time to stop letting the world fool you. It’s time to stop letting love fool you. It’s…

Sasural times – straight from the heart!!!

I hope I won’t be killed for writing this post by my in laws. For those who are still wondering, Sasural is a Hindi word for in-laws place. Having been married for more than 3 years, it has been ethereal journey so far . . .  I am blessed to have a lovely family (hope they have the same thoughts !!) Though I live far away from them, but they do visit us often.

Married to a chartered accountant who has seven siblings and he being the youngest one is not an easy battle to fight. But with time and experience you learn the tips and tricks of keeping few people happy. So I sharing the five awesome tips which worked for me :

  1. You can’t keep everyone happy – trust me, once you adopt this philosophy in your life, it’s all SORTED. Get to know your in-laws  to understand them better.
  2. Don’t over promise -Be brutal honest about your capabilities on how much and what all will you be able to contribute at home. When I was asked if I know certain fancy dishes, I used to say “No” to most of them and felt guilty that I don’t know enough cooking but I am happy that I never over promised and made a mess in my kitchen.
  3. Build on your signature dishes – Do some cooking and be good at at least 5 different dishes, trust me this will work. They won’t complain that their daughter in law doesn’t know any special dishes but they are going to cherish the time when you cook them.
  4. Have a hobby – Build on any hobby you like and spend time on it after you are done with household chores. I love reading books, and whenever I get time I spend time with them. My in laws are completely okay with it and even take interest in what am I reading and is it even worth sharing. They value me for investing my time in doing something fruitful.
  5. Have zero expectations – Don’t expect everyone to love you from the day one, it takes time to build on relationship. Especially in arranged marriages, there is too much of expectations from a girl to take care of everyone, in turn the girl would also expect (it’s a human nature). Take care of yourself, coz you are special & strong women.

That’t it and you will be sorted. Thank you for reading so far, if you agree or disagree, leave your comments in the comment box 🙂
