“Sometimes the heart sees, what is invisible to the eyes” – Jackson Brown
It was again a dull day, similar to the old days when she heard her parents yelling & screaming. She saw her friends making mockery out of her, neighbours pointing and laughing all around. She just couldn’t hold on to the ugly forces running within. Did “Love” had no space in the hearts of these people? Highly confused & tortured, she ran out of her home.
She ran & ran until stumbling upon a rock, a huge rock besides a lovely stream passing by. So calm and … Continue Reading
Life has been a perfect roller coaster ride and after getting the badge of “Motherhood”, it has had its shares of ample smiles and some tears as well. Imparting values, developing creativity, enhancing skills have to be nurtured from the inception of toddlerhood phase. And I tried my level best to give all round development to my preschooler, who is 3.5 years now and ready to hit formal schools. But, to make all those transitions and skill developments seamless, somehow, I felt, I lost my hobbies, my craziness to some extent. And that’s why after 3 years, I’ve planned to … Continue Reading
A very beautiful morning to the world! Its really very rare that we get a chance to ponder on our souls, and lean from the learnings that life bestow us with.
As I’m growing every day, I feel, I’m learning so much, from the nature, from the surroundings, from the ones we love. Sometimes, we do not see a silver line in the dark clouds, sometimes, the morning does’t seems to come back after the night. We lose hopes but those moments are the ones, wherein we need to see, think, plan and yes love the life more for giving … Continue Reading

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.

We used to quickly get our family time & run for short weekends as a picnic & enjoy in the lap … Continue Reading
