My word for the year 2015…..

calendar-3045826_1920.jpg

When Dhruv was less than 1 year old, he (just like any other baby) frequently fell sick. I used to stress out a lot because I was not able to tend to him as I could not take frequent leaves from my work place. With his every bout of sickness I imagined like it was the end of the world and this used to push me into the vicious circle of negativity. Read more…

Goodbye and Miss you alot

Today I feel a little restless. I am having trouble to keep my mind in focus. 2 days back I was distracted since I had been dreaming of going back to my parents thinking of happier times to come.

Distracted

The bespectacled mother is distracted these days. She is packing bags and winding up to return to her home country. She has been dreaming night and day about the time she will be spending with her parents and family and becoming a kid herself.

Hopefully, she will be back from this scatter-brained phase soon.

So here are a few of my thoughts that, just maybe, your mom didn’t tell you:

Knock Knock : Is anybody there?

My second blog post ‘First Attempt : Doomed‘ which, according to me, is my best piece of writing work till now and the reason why I got the courage to start my blog. Within 5 minutes of my pressing the publish button on 12th Feb  I got 2 mails in my inbox that there have been 2 random wordpress bloggers who have shown their liking for the post and being generous enough to click upon the like button.
