The auspicious festival of Navratri!
Navratri, meaning nine nights, is a Hindu festival celebrated in Autumn in India. Celebrated with amazing festive spirits, these 9 days are dedicated mainly to “Maa” (Mother/Goddess), be it Maa Durga, Maa Kali or any other form. The story associated with Navratri is a battle which took between goddess Durga and the demon Mahishasura. The Demon here represents Selfishness, Narcissism, Egoism, falseness which was killed by the Goddess, a Women, a Maa representing the power of a woman, victory of truth, sacrifice and love that a Maa’s heart has!
Why I associate Navratri to Womanhood?

As the train starts to say Happy Teacher’s Day!
The train whistled and they stared their journey for the main city of Kolkata from a nearby village [close to Jhargram]. Train took hardly 5 hours to reach Kolkata Junction, but it was rainy day in the summers. Temperatures soared to as high as 45degree last day and since morning it was raining. Some delay was expected.
But that delay was sinking their hearts. Pankaj and his mama papa were too curious to have a glance of the building. The building which could reform his family’s life. Pankaj was just 8years, … Continue Reading
Some promises I want from my Man!
Husbands…Highly crafty people, who usually tend to handle up their wives/girlfriends with ample delicacy & with lots of tongue twisters all the time around. With the perfect dossiers of “Uff we forgot” / “A sandwich between 2 females”, these men have grown exponentially out of the feminine world. But they still need to learn a lot from the women surrounding them, be it in personal or professional world.
But whatever might be the scene, these men have always managed to enter a woman’s heart & grab nearly 100% of it, be it with … Continue Reading
The Clouds thundered
And the skies lightened
The Showers sprinkled
As the trees smiled
The peacocks danced
And the Mother Earth glorified its majesty!
There was a stork awaiting to arrive,
And a woman waiting to explore the life,
As the mummy and daddy tango’d to the shrill cries,
A plethora of questions to know you came by,
As you grew,
You ladened with smiles,
Overflowed us with Jubilation’s,
Showered us with Celebrations,
Drenched us with your humor,
Wondered us with your acts,
Agonized us with stubbornness!
But all through you made us love life immensely,
You made us walk … Continue Reading

[This is a TRUE story, not mine, but of a very close friend of mine]
It was a beautiful day, life seemed to be so happy in the arms of mom and dad. I was barely 12 then, but life was such a joy, with the only motto of play with dad and get delicious meals by mom. It was complete fun getting to learn the practical world which mom taught to we 3 siblings, me being the oldest. We used to quickly get our family time & run for short weekends as a picnic & enjoy in the lap … Continue Reading
And that’s for an extra loving and caring Dad! This time, Dad of my child, who has got less of the fame on my blog rather. Mom’s take all of it when it comes to Parenting & rather Fatherhood somehow hides under the influential “Motherhood”. Indeed, Moms are persuasive when it comes to raising up a child. But to me, it is both the parents who have to be the sturdy wheels to get cycle run smoothly on all sort of roads. Fathers day is near and lemme grab this opportunity to let him know that he is a special … Continue Reading
Being obligated towards Life, for all what it has given!
“Zindagi hasne gaane ke liye hai pal do pal…Isse khona nahi, kho ke rona nahi”
How beautiful these lines seems to be! A beautiful angel in the hands of her mother, full of warmth, love, promises to shower a sparkling life. This life is as delicate as rose petals; promising a bouquet of freshness, fragrance & beauty, along with the fear of tearing apart when winds blow under strained/triggered circumstances.
Hey life , you’ve ensured merry-go-rounds at every step & that’s what I love you the most for. You are … Continue Reading
Hey Friends, I really couldn’t wait for “Father’s day” to share my feelings for him:). I’m a proud daddy’s girl for sure! Dad’s get very less of the Pie, so here is all of it for him, as he has been whole pie for me!
When I was brought into this world..
A dad is someone who hugged me to provide his warmth,
Who….When I was a Kid…
Had sleepless nights to make me sleep,
Made himself silly & ridiculous to make me smile & laugh,
Forgot his pains to give me lovely rides,
Let me play in the sand … Continue Reading
Dramatic World before my eyes!
Learn from past & hope for tomorrow. Dream & give them wings to fly high !!! This world is so beautiful to live in. It brings so much of love & happiness in our lives. It gives us “never thought of bonds” with so much of passion. Yes, I do acknowledge, but yet there have been ample superstitions & practices [majorly in girl child education] prevalent which have changed the beauty of this world. They have deteriorated the word Innocence & have shattered some beautiful dreams into painful ones.
