A Day to Life Post- 96!

This entire week has been crazy.. My niece and her parents (my brother and his wife) have moved to their own house 2 days back and so has Ganeshji. Yes, since most of us know we here in Mumbai are celebrating the most loved festival, Ganesh Chathurthi that started from September 17 and it’s still going on. It is a festival celebrated in the honour of elephant God, Ganesha. During this time, we bring idols of Ganesha at home and worship Him. My family has been celebrating this festival for around 15 years now, and this year was way too special to us due to Shaira. At my place we bring Him for 5 days, and then on the 5th day immerse Him in the sea. The festival goes on for 11 days. All over Mumbai people have Him for different days, some might keep for 1 and a half day or 3 days or 5 days or 7days and finally for 11days. This time we had more guests than the previous year, which was amazing.. They all came to seek His blessings.
Lord Ganesha is considered as the God of power and wisdom. There are various stories associated that show how cleverly and coolly he used to deal with complicated matters.
We brought Him home on the 16th night, and on 21st was the immersion. These 5 days were filled with awesome food, lots of guests, fun, laughter, sweets and not to forget feeling blessed.
Since couple of years in Mumbai, we have now started having these artificial ponds, which are eco friendly and do not harm any marine life. Such ponds are ideal for idols that are brought at home because these idols are small, maybe not more than 3-4 feet. Our idol was 2.5 feet this year. The big idols, like 10 feet have to immerse them in the sea. But still these ponds have been a blessing, we have been going there since 3 years now, it’s hassle free, best part is that we know we aren’t hearing the marine life. I remember one year when we used to go to the beach to immerse the idol, there were way too many idols that were on the shore of the sea, and in a devastated state. Some didnt have hands, or head or a leg. It was really sad to see them in this state. We worship Him for so many days and in the end to see them like this was way too upsetting. So now we prefer the artificial ponds.
This year our idol was of red in colour and lots of diamond, pearl and coloured stones work. We offer Him food, fruits and sweets. Even the guests coming to seek His blessing offer either fruits or sweets or money. I would get fresh flower garland everyday. I am just sharing few pictures of Ganesha.

A Day to Life Post- 95!

Aren’t kids adorable and precious! My brother and his wife were blessed with a beautiful little angel in the month of June of this year. In another 5 days she will complete 3 months. It’s been a week since we all are living in the same house, and I have to say that these are the best days of my life.. She loves to talk, not that she can but she keeps making baby noises, looks at you, smiles, pulls my hair and everything that a 3 month old baby does.. And it is the best feeling in this world. To be around her 24 hours and see getting naughty slowly it’s just amazing. How our day pass, we have no clue. I love her way too much.. God Bless You Shaira!

For today there’s a small poem that I wanted to share with you all..

Sometimes memories made her laugh her heart out,
And drew the widest smile on her face..
And she relived all her precious moments again..
Sometimes she just wanted to run back to that time,
Where everything felt like a perfect fairytale..
But other times tore her open,
And left her in pieces..
Which were hard for her to join back again..

July is already here, cant believe 6 months of 2015 have already passed. There’s just a small poem that is running in my head and thought of sharing it with you all.. It’s just something I feel everyday..

Sometimes I am happy sometimes I weep,
But a new day breaks after a dark night’s sleep.
What you & I sow is what we shall reap,
The finale is with the earthly creep.
It doesn’t matter how hard life can get,
What matters is I will win in the end.
Because that’s a promise I made to myself.

If you love something, love it completely,
Cherish it.
But most importantly, show it.
Because something that is there one day,
It might not be the next.
Never take that for granted.
So, say what you need to say,
Then say a little more,
Say too much,
Show too much,
And love too much.
Because that’s a promise I made to myself.

Wishing everyone an amazing week and a great weekend well in advance. 🙂

A Day to Life Post- 88!

Since few days I have been pondering about one line that I read, which goes like “relationships never die a natural death. They are always murdered by attitude, behaviour, ego, hidden benefits and ignorance.” Well, I am not an expert on relationships considering my last relationship, but I think these lines make alot of sense.
Relationships are different types apart from that we share with our spouses throughout our life, some are a relationship of a mother daughter, of father daughter, friends, siblings, at work place with colleagues, with your boss and so on.. But what makes these make or break is all in the above line that I shared. Attitude becomes a major aspect in making or breaking a relationship. Different people have different attitudes, if someone’s attitude is nice then obviously your reaction is going to great too. But alot of time it doesn’t happen, it’s difficult to adjust, not everyone is easy to deal with.
Behaviour, again matters alot.. How does one treats you, behaves with you says alot about that person. I have come to realise that if the opposite person doesn’t respect you then he/she dont deserve you at all. The relationship with parents is totally different.
Ego most of the times becomes the 3rd person in a relationship. The minutes ego comes in between, be it any kind of relationship, the relationship is bound to go down the drain.. It’s a bitter truth. I have felt it.
I think we get into a relationship because most of the times we are scared of being lonely. We go to an extent that inspite of being humiliated and disrespected, we still be in that relationship, why? Because we fear to be lonely, hidden benefit. The minute we realise that it’s perfectly fine to be single and enjoy our freedom, then we welcome happiness in our lives. Like that every relationship directly or indirectly has a hidden benefit. Today, just sometime back I was encouraging someone that it’s fine to be single, you dont have to be answerable to anyone, you dont have to worry about anything, you can do anything you like. Dam! I just realised that this is too has a hidden benefit.. Lol!!
Last but not the least, ignorance. Ignorance is most common mistake we make in a relationship and this becomes the biggest weapon to destroy a relationship. Whenever one is ignored in any relationship, he/she starts losing self confidence in them, it just tears the relationship apart. I remember when I was reading biography on Steve Jobs, in that I read a line, which I cant remember exactly, that ignoring is the biggest crime in a relationship, which is so true. Ignoring your partner or kids or friends or work or siblings takes a negative toll on the other, the person starts to feel isolated and feels that he/she aren’t worthy enough to deserve your time or attention. Well, unfortunately this happened to me with my ex, I was completed ignored, sometimes for days at a stretch.. I did feel not worthy enough, lost my confidence and went into a shell, I stopped sharing things with him, and our relationship had come to a dead end.

I think what’s important for all of us to remember is that, it takes ages to build a relationship and a second to break it. A relationship is like a seed that we plant in our life, we have to nuture it, water it, feed it, give it proper sunlight for the roots to be strong so that the result will be a huge tree with green leaves which will bear beautiful flowers and fruits. If we dont do all of this, the plant wont survive at all. It will wither away in few days. Relationships are similar, we need to take care, if we dont it will break or die within few days. In the end the choice is ours!
