As per my observation on this topic everyone criticizes current scenarios, but nobody takes any needed steps for the same. Honestly, what we are during on our end? Even some people didn’t have time to cast the vote. How can we expect others to be patriotic? We love to dispose waste on roads, bribe others for our personal benefits(even sometimes when they don’t ask for it), if we notice something unfortunate on road while passing from there we don’t want to help, we hate to follow traffic rules and the list can go on. I think there is a need to improve ourself first, then to point others.
Every child says that his mother is the best mother in the world and for them she will be, but I have some different reasons for saying this. I lost my father in an accident when I was 10 years old. My mother was a housewife at that time, completely unknown to the all odds of the world. When my father was alive, she never wanted to work outside home, all she loves to do household work. But after my father’s death, she decided to do the job although elders of our family didn’t want her to go outside for a job but she did it only for us. She fought with everyone for us.
The woman who was not confident enough to talk with the strangers, gathered the courage to settle down in a new city, completely unknown to her. She had to deal with a lots of unknown people daily as she is working in public dealing section of a govt. office. The woman who has always done whatever others decided for her is taking major decisions of not only her life but for us also. Her one decision impacted my life, decision of doing job. The moment she decided to work, she has put a step forward for our bright future (me and my brother).
She wanted us to be independent after whatever happened to her, she didn’t want the same situation for us thus gave us freedom for taking our own decisions whether it’s a decision of choosing a career or a life partner. What I learnt from her “Life always gives us choices and our decisions creates our own destiny.”
The best part about her is all these problem she faced with the smile, I never able to find out how she can manage to smile in the difficult situations. I still have to grasp this quality from her. At the end, I want to say that “I have not achieved much, but whatever I have achieved because of her love and guidance”. This post is dedicated to my friend, philosopher and guide “My Mother”.

Past 3 months were very hectic for Adi, he is paying for wrong estimation that was sent to the client. He can’t blame anyone for his fault. He felt a bit relaxed now as the situation is now under control. Past month was a nightmare for him as he spent almost 18-20 hrs daily in the office, no time for food, family and his girlfriend Neelima. Neelima is in the same office, but he hardly got the time to meet her in past 3 months. Although she understands, but this time she is very angry. He finds it’s hard to placid her, after all he forgot to wish her birthday. Every year they spend quality time together on her birthday and this year even when she called him, he didn’t get time to talk to her. This makes her more upset.
He doesn’t know how to convince her for a date. Lots of ideas coming to mind but nothing concrete. He suddenly looked into the mirror and noticed that he was looking pathetic dark circles, dull face and thick layer of stubble. He gets an idea with this, if he meets Neelima with the face like this she will surely forget her anger. He decided not to shave and meet Neelima.
When Neelima saw Adi, she became more angry and said, “I know your project is live and you are free now. You didn’t get time to shave. You know I hate you seeing like this. I thought when you will be free, I will be able to see my old handsome Adi back, but you are impossible. Leave my way.” And with this Adi’s plan is failed. But he didn’t give up and tried a different plan. Firstly, he shaved the stubble and looked like more human. Then he bought some chocolate and flowers and booked
table in a Neelima’s favourite restaurant. Then he convinced Neelima’s friend to bring her over there. When Neelima saw all these arrangements done by Adi, she smiled and said, “I don’t want all these things but your time only. When you look dull I do not feel good.” This is a new lesson for Adi but he is happy now as Neelima has forgotten her anger.
Today is the happiest day of Arun’s life, he has become the father of a girl. He was waiting for this happiness from a long time. Although he is already a father of a boy but he always wanted a daughter. He is singing loudly “Mere ghar aayi ek nanhi pari”.
After 3 years
Now responsibilities of Arun are increased, his little fairy “Meera” is 3 years old. She will start going school this year. He is working hard day and night as he wants to give his family best things, but he doesn’t have time for family. Meera was upset with him as he was not present on her birthday party. Arun hardly gets time food, shaving is out of the question. Sometimes Meera got scared when he looked at him. He knows that distance between him and the family is increasing but he doesn’t know how to manage all the things? After all money is important for a good life. he doesn’t know when he spend time with Meera last.
Arun is coming back home late at night 12 o’clock. He is feeling drowsy due to tiredness but he has to drive the car no other option is available. Suddenly a truck came in front of her car. He pulls the break and saved a major accident. His heart is beating fast, he is thinking “What will happen if I died?”. He realized that he is missing real things in life. He came home and told everything to the wife. He hugged Meera tightly, she is surprised and said, “Who are you?” Arun is shocked and thinking “Why she said that?” and looked into the mirror “Oh..I am looking so lost and this beard”. Beard is keeping him away from his child. He decided first task of the morning “shaving”. Meera is happy now, she gets her loving father back.
Rohan never wants to be grown up. He always loved his carefree child life. Playing video games, watching cartoons, non stop eating and playing cricket with buddies are the integral part of his life. But now he is 15, he has to behave like a grown up. His friends love to run behind girls but he never takes much interest in all these things. His parents get irritated with his child like behavior.
One day his father tried to explain the importance of being grown up :
Father – “Son, I think you should start behaving maturely. We have to change ourself with time this is the rule of life. You should start taking responsibilities, enjoy your teenage life and last, but not least start shaving. Look at yourself you are looking like a “Loafer”.”
Rohan – “I don’t want to shave. I may get hurt, it looks so dangerous. You also don’t allow to touch me your razor before.”
Father – “At that time, you was a kid and the razor that we used was not so good. It was quite heavy and anyone can get easily by it. But these days gillete have given a good options, try them.”
Rohan – “I don’t want to.. leave me alone.”
One day, he saw a very pretty girl and lost all his senses. She has joined the school recently. Many times he tried to talk with her, but she always run away. One day he stopped her in the middle of the road while she was going home. The girl started screaming “Gunda, Gunda save me please, help me”. Then Rohan realized that all this happening because of his stubble. He said “Sorry” to her and left the place. After this incidence he decided to shave, now he realized that his father was right. He has to accept the changes and move on in life.

The Parent’s soul lives in a child. If the child is smiling parents become satisfied. The fourth generation of my maternal family was started 3 years back when my cousin sister gave birth to my dearest niece “Janhavi” on “Dhanteras”. Our elders said that Goddess Laxmi has arrived at our home and my brother in law(Jiju) consider her as his lucky charm.
Janhvi is not very fond of food. After a lot of chasing games she eats food. My sister was very worried about her health as these are the growing years of a child, if she will not have proper diet, it will hamper her growth. Also, she is an active child, not stop for a single moment in the same place. So she drained quickly. We try to feed her by playing some games with her. My sister sometime start cartoon movie on the laptop and then try to feed her. She cooks her favorite dishes and try to make that dish tasty as well as healthy. But it is difficult to maintain both. It is very difficult to teach a child to ignore the taste as food is healthy, taste is important for them than anything else and if they are not in a good mood. Then it becomes impossible to feed them healthy food. They can’t force a child to eat something, it will give adverse result, what if the child will start vomiting. At the end they become helpless and give child whatever he demands. At least, child is eating something. Then most difficult problem arises for parents “How will their children get essential nutrients”.
My mother suggests my sister to give her Dabur Chyawanprash, which she used to give us when we were kids. A lot of diseases was spreading around our locality, but we were always untouched by it. My mother was also upset with our eating habits. So, she found this mid-way. These days as the level of pollution is increasing which in turn become root cause of many problem, it become necessary to give some extra element, which is there in Dabur Chyawanprash. If we ignore this problem in the early stage of life, it will become incurable disease in later life. Sometimes pollution’s side effects become visible after long time in form of allergic disease. So, it is necessary for parents to be alert. Parent’s alertness can save there child from many problems.
Dabur Chyawanprash has increased our immunity power. It has anti-oxidant properties (contains amla) and helps strengthen your body’s internal defence mechanism – the immune system – thereby protecting you from day to day infections such as cough, cold etc. The natural product it contains help improving natural defence system of our body.
