You

My lovely you...you two
Don't shut your eyes to dream that dream
Open up to the world you have in front of you
And embrace it each day with a new smile, with a new you...

You...
No matter what name anyone calls you by
No matter what anyone says you can or cannot do..
You....
You know and so do I
That there is nothing you cannot achieve
That you can get up on your tip toes and touch the sky
And who knows...maybe beyond?

You.....
For whom I shall gladly give away my wings...
But I would rather you found yours to fly....
To take you where your heart desires
Even if your mind says stop, wait, listen and think...
Even if you are worried what they may say
Your heart and your wings will keep you in good stead....
I promise..

Mamma, Why Is It Just A 'Man' Made World?

I pride myself in the fact that my 7 year old is growing up to be such a thinker and observer. Well, it is indeed a blessing and sometimes a curse too, especially when I don't  want her to understand something but she still perceives it.

The other day we were snuggling up and having our nightly routine of good night chit chat, what she fondly calls as GNCC :) It's a time of the day I really look forward to, and unless I am out, I don't miss it for anything.

She was telling me about some things she had learned in class about natural things and man-made things, and that is when she asked me - 'Mamma, why do they call it man-made? Did no woman ever make anything? Or do people think that women can't make anything? Why can't people call it 'human' made instead of 'man' made?'

Growing Up Advice? How Do I Tell You Ever....

 http://www.quotesvalley.com/images/09/a-daughter-is-one-of-the-most-beautiful-gifts-the-world-has-to-give.gif





And I have two amazing angels!!!!! 

Some days back I got a call from a brand that wanted me to be a part of a new campaign they are coming up with. They wanted me to be part of a video shoot, where I was required to share what I would do as a mother that would empower my children and make them feel stronger.

The catch was that I had only a few seconds to share my ‘advice’ or ‘suggestion.’

I politely refused for certain personal reasons, especially as I am not fond of coming in front of the camera at all, but the other point was – I did not know what to say.

What do I say to my daughter, or my daughters, given that the younger one too will suddenly grow up and understand the world more and more?

I honestly do not know.

Toys And Games Are Useless Says The New Nahar Amrit Shakti Ad: A Shame !!


So this is what you can hold up as one of the worst cases of advertising - where all morals and values are thrown in the bin or to the wind, and whatever you know is true and correct is artfully hidden away behind glossy shams. Go on, check out the image up here once more.

Before we go on, let me warn you that I am going to be in my rudest and spewing venom left right and center best, so if you do have a problem with that, please come back later for a different post (no apologies). And if you are from the Nahar group or the geniuses who created this ad, go on to read knowing fully well that you are going to hate and abuse me and feel free to share your criticism in the comments - I'd love to see what you have to say to justify what you created.

Now coming back to the post ....... 

Have a look at this ad here - the one that a lot of people on social media are talking about, especially as it caught their attention on billboards (And let me tell you it didn't catch their attention for any 'good' or 'wow' reasons but for the fact that the ad is in such poor taste) and they were left wondering just what prompted the promoters and so-called 'ad gurus' to come up with something like this.

According to the ad makers in this particular case, your child simply does not need any more toys or games in his or her life. No, not any more. That is, if you choose to take up residence at Nahar's Amrit Shakti, a 'plush' residential colony in Mumbai's Andheri area. The ad also claims that doing so will 'Let Life Begin.' Wow !!! Clap you all please....

Instead of games and toys, your child needs to be 'placed' on a golf course, complete with grown up attire and attitude, and forget that there is indeed a magical and beautiful and extremely essential world called 'CHILDHOOD.' No ladies and gentlemen, if you want your child's life to
