'No vote' is a welcome sign

After all, everybody has a right to vote and not vote, isn't it? If you don't vote does that simply mean you have lost the right to blame the government also? That's big debate! It is the right of a person not to vote, but that 'no vote' from the government is a welcome sign. If at all there is a 100% voting in India, I am sure in most places the 'no vote' wins the elections with greatest majority ever in the history of Indian elections! Oh that's not a good sign but! hmm what does that mean? Should the election commission go on conducting re-elections in those 'no vote' won areas? Don't you think they will enter a loop of conducting elections again and again? When does the government form? Lot of questions! It might not mean there are not any good leaders out there, but it definitely means people have lost the trust in the election candidates. So why not let people nominate their candidates as well, keeping a limit on number of candidates to be nominated? Also why do not we have an eligibility criteria for nominations itself, let alone participating/winning elections and forming government? I think all these are not happening because majority of people doesn't deserve the same. Election manifestos talk about clearing your loans, making people more lazy and selfish. When a person takes a loan from anywhere, doesn't he supposed to repay it with interest. Instead of clearing the loans, poor people should be given opportunities to work better and clear their loans all by themselves. It makes him a better individual. With difficulty to earn for a daily bread, no one can even have enthusiasm to think/dream about bigger things even in their wildest dreams. Who can we blame here now! If that person is not better, what morals can we expect him to teach his kids! And the same kids grow up to be same poor, selfish, lazy, ignorant, pitiable person who either votes for similar people or become one who will clear loans. Is this ever going to end? As the debate continues, till we all try to find solutions, time and tide - and also elections - wait for no man, so please grab some motivation, go and exercise your right, be it your 'vote' or your 'no vote'.

Parenting Tales - Luck Is Overrated & Happiness Is Acquired

Hey there! It has been such a long time I wrote here and it feels so good to be back. While the look and feel and reach of blogs have been transformed while I was away, one thing remained constant and that is content. End of the day, we all read when the content appeals to us, when the content stays with us, keep popping out of our minds when we are busy with something else, when it resonates with our persona and current phase of life.

If you are a parent and dealing with new parenting trials every day then yes my thoughts resonate very much with you - our content is the same :) Let me make you feel jealous/happy for a bit now! Recently, during many interactions I was quoted as a 'lucky parent' and I felt the need to write why it is not so on most occasions. Sooner, you will know why.

My child is 5 years now and below are certain things that happen as a rhythm and part of his lifestyle.

1. He is the first one to wake up at home by himself, early in the morning, around 6-6:30 …

My precious possession!

Right now our (me and the hubby) world revolves around this little man, who is busy himself and keeps us on our toes as well! Darling kiddo is 3.8 years now and is the most happening thing at home. Here's presenting a little peek into his illustrious life :)

He managed to dug out a chocolate lying somewhere in the fridge and was asking me to open it for him. I said - you can have it tomorrow morning in the car when we will go on a ride to your grandma's place. He just listened to me and went on to do something still holding the chocolate in his tiny hand. I was smiling to myself that I handled the situation smartly by not saying no directly, to which he would throw a tantrum otherwise! After a while he was asking me to open the balcony door to throw the chocolate wrapper in the bin. I was not pleased that he finished the chocolate and asked him why did he eat it? He said - Mumma I already ate it while going to grandma's place in the car tomorrow!!!! #AajKalKeBacche!

Two fathers...unlimited love!

To the two most amazing fathers I have known so far!

To the father who thinks beyond money
who thinks daughters are no less to sons
who thinks the best thing he could give his daughters is their education
who never thinks that cooking is only a woman's job and still cooks at home
who prepares much loved home-made pickle for her daughter instead of getting the store brought one
who doesn't care what others think when he is doing the right thing
who defied the societal rules and went out of his way just to give a beautiful life to his daughter in her rightful way!
Happy Father's Day dear Dad!

To the father who delivered his baby with the same (or may be more!) grit, passion and pain as his wife, excepting the physical pain and scars!
who takes care of his kid also like a mother
who never shows patriarchy
who is never tired and always plays along with his child, almost like a sibling
who never minded changing diapers, cleaning bum or giving bath to his baby
who gives the bes…
