The secret to a happy marriage remains a secret

The secret to a happy marriage remains a secret. Me and my husband are married for 8 years and still our search is on, search to figure out the secret of happy marriage lol. It is rightly said that Marriages are made in heaven but so is thunder and lightening. When husband is happy, wife becomes sad and when wife is happy husband become curious. The gist is both cannot see each other happy. In first year of marriage husband speaks and wife listen, second year is for wife to speak and thereafter husband wife both speaks and neighbors listen. A happy marriage is a combination of two imperfect players who refuse to give up on each other and irritate for life.

"One pretty lady was relaxing with a glass of wine with her husband near, and she says I love you so much I don't know how I could ever live without you. Happy husband curiously ask is that you or the wine talking, to which she replied Its me talking to the wine". So this is a happy marriage where both stays together no matter what. They are happy, they are sad, they are irritating but are together for life.

Keeping funny part aside, as there is no secret and everything is open so follow some quick tips to keep the spark alive

1. Respect each other

2. Trust each other

3. Do not take your spouse for granted

4. Communicate and travel together

5. Give each other some space.

6. Don't bring ego issue. It can spoil the relation to worse

7. Say Sorry


9. Share responsibilities. Gender Equality is the latest trend.

You have got the one best person who you can irritate and annoy for the rest of your life so enjoy and keep the life of the pure relation alive.

"Cheers to the good life".

Disclaimer- I am happily married with the best person, the views mentioned are quirky for the interest of the readers.

Nowadays the perfect saying apt for modern couples is "contraceptive pills and condoms are the 2nd and 3rd measures of controlling population, and the first one being school fees", funny but true. The exorbitant fees of schools leads the couples to opt for one child policy.

Education is the basic right and private schools definitely knows how to play with this card . The time is not far when schools will demand a portion in the will for providing education to the child:)  

Private schools charge for anything and everything. It is an organized business setup wherein parents have to rigidly follow the manual. Even a pencil has to be bought from school approved vendors. Hence parents decide to give best to one child and also stop from giving the best gift of life to only child, a sibling.

Then there are other factors also- the rising cost of living, the lack of child care support and the urge to go back to work made to stop with one child.

Time has changed and both parents are working, so the family completes at one child. This is also true that number of children doesn't bring any change, its all about how happy you are within as a parent.

"Cheers to all parents who are happy with their one kid, two kids and so on".

Children are the source of energy in the house, they bring happiness and joy in family. Almost every mom falls in category of yelling mom at some point of time. We want to make parenting so perfect that we often forget how hard steps we are taking on the kids to make it possible. We don't want to get judged by the society, hence get over strict and stressed. Is it even required?

Perfect mother is a myth and its perfectly fine if your child is not as good as other child. Pressurising and yelling will take them nowhere and they will start following the same behavioral gestures for others. Parents are the role model of child and they religiously follow their parents. This is a fact that children adapt wrong things easily and take years to adapt good habits.

The victims of our furious nature are our own kids. They cry, scream and still come to us for our love and hugs and then we feel ashamed and guilty of our nature towards them.

Our uncontrolled aggression makes them stubborn, anger has no purpose and it can never solve the issue. It puts full stop on communication between child and mom.

When kids throw tantrums and doesn't listen it means they are upset about something and they don't know how to express. So being the mom, its our responsibility to figure it out. Be quiet and calm and wait for the child to calm down, that's the only solution. If the child is screaming and you start yelling, the situation gets worse. Punishment is not the solution, explanation is. My 3.5 year old daughter always say please explain me and not shout at me :).

I also completely understand the fact that mothers are stressed and frustrated full day and then children become the soft target. Children follow the behavior they are raised with, don't make them follow your aggressive nature for no big reason. Children need love and affection and someone who can hear them with no judging. they are the purest souls on earth. I know its easy said than done but with simple gestures we can win them. After rejecting many wombs, they have come in yours so think there is a reason to it.

They are too small to understand us in the exact way we want. so take it easy. the kids who need most of the love will ask for it in the best unloving ways.

"Anybody can become angry- that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose and in the right way that is not within everybody's power and is not easy". Children definitely are not the right person to show your anger. 

To raise a happy and a calm child, the mother needs to be calm and happy. So be a healthy and a happy mom.

Few tips to handle an angry child-

1. Make stories to follow your instructions. Like there is  tree outside and a sleeping baba lives on that tree, he checks on the children who are not sleeping so lets sleep or he will come and catch you.

2. Distract the child by talking about entirely different topic. Like whenever my daughter gets angry, I always start discussing about her upcoming birthday and she forgets our conflict issue and join me in the discussion. Try it.

3. Count- general rule says 1-10 but here we are talking about our kids so count 1-20

4. Take a deep breath and free yourself from the place for few minutes. Adding anger to anger only adds fuel to the fire.

From A Full Time Working Mom To Full Time Stay At Home Mom

It was a normal working day when my instinct ask me to quit my happy work profile and be a stay at home mom for my young daughter who is growing up too fast. Though my work was stressful sometimes but the culture of my office was not less than a family to me where everyone supported me wholeheartedly making it possible for me to work and take care of my daughter simultaneously .

Still I took this decision to be more with my daughter and give her some more quality time. These too young years of hers will never come back, and I don't want to regret later for not spending time with her. Life is too short to live with regrets. I know I am little old school type when it comes about my daughter. I did not sacrificed my carrier for her, I don't want to blame her for this decision of mine. It was for my own selfish need of staying with her more and enjoy the life.

But I also knew that this decision of mine will not be easy for me, there were many eyebrows raised many questions asked, many advices given but I followed my heart to completely transform my life. Homemakers life is not easy they are 24*7 with their kids and no breaks.I couldn’t understand the value of a stay-at-home mom until I became one. There is always a lack of recognition for stay at home mom, when we are working the motivation comes in form of appraisals and promotions but for SAHM no such reward system is there and we became the one who are always questioned for any failure in the upbringing of the child. This role is the least recognized role in the society. But not in the eyes of your kids, they love you unconditionally and No monetary compensation can fulfill such feeling.

I am behind my daughter all time, I take her to dance classes, we paint together, we have quiet play dates at home and my calendar is full with cute birthday parties. All mothers are full time working its like only few are salaried. I can and will come back to my professional carrier soon, but I will not be having the power of bringing these growing years of my daughter back where she is happy and most importantly I am happy which is the utmost need for raising a happy child.

A lady is a mother by heart, sitting in office or sitting in home doesn't make difference. Its all about what your heart says. I have sailed in both the boats and trust me no role is easy.

"Cheers to us"

Wednesday, July 17, 2019


So much silence in the house, I can’t handle it and I really don't like it. My daughter is sleeping and gaining her energy to make us happy and chirpy. After getting her in my life, now I realize what was missing when she was not with us. She makes our life beautiful, joyful. Kissing and cuddling her is like a therapy which gives instant relief and happiness.

Being a mom has improved me lot as a person. I never thought that I would be so calm and full of patience. I never thought that wiping as ass would feel so great (lol). I love cleaning up the mess, I don't make.

I had no idea how selfish I was until I became a mother. My entire life revolved around myself and then in an instant it was about someone else entirely. It has made me a better person in so many ways.
I never thought that feeding someone would be so satisfying. Times when my daughter finishes her food (which rarely happens), that is the most satisfying moment for me.

I never thought that I would be so full of patience at any time that I will sit continuously for hours holding cellphone with baby videos on in one hand and bowl of food in another feeding my child.
I never thought that I would be so hygienically perfect for someone that I will wash the bowl five times before serving food to my child.

I never feel gloomy, tired when my daughter is around. I never have a dull moment. Motherhood has taught me to value my time. Motherhood has taught me to be happy and laughing always. The only purpose for me is to maintain the divine smile of my daughter, which I am sure all the mothers would relate to.

My quality of life has improved. My child has taught me to be calm in stressed situation, she has taught me to be happy when things are not in favor. She has improved me as a person.

She has taught me to free myself and let things take their own natural course. I will also completely agree to the fact that all changes comes with lot of toll on health. We women forget to take care of our self, we should always remember if we are healthy our child will be healthy too. We are the one who have the responsibility of giving a better, healthy and good life to our children. Only a  healthy mind can give a happy life to others. Sometimes, between juggling the home, the work and the child, it's easy to lose track of who you are as a person - what motivate you, what relaxes you, what makes you happy. Being a little selfish is important too. Taking some time out for yourself is important. Do what make you happy, learning to say no is important. Saying yes to yourself is important. It sounds rude but if you aren't happy in your life, then you cannot make those around you happy. Doing DIY, decorating my house and gardening makes me happy and I make sure to take some time out to do it, as it relaxes me. Watering my potted plants is the ultimate soother for my stressed mind.

Follow the simple habits which can release stress, learn your stress signs and tune into your body accordingly. Take a mommy time out break and ask for help from family members (you are the one who can judge your body on when it needs a break).Try Tea- drinking hot helps you bring slow down and a little dark chocolate can also bring on the calm. Read a good book before sleep, find one spot in the house that makes you happy and unwind after a stressful day.

I thank God every time for giving me this gift of motherhood. Being a mother is something you cannot define in words, it just comes in your actions. Those little creatures have that aura which keeps you running on your toes all the time

The Watch Smile- 10:10

DO you ever wonder why there is always a time set 10:10 on any time device before the actual time is set up. In almost every advertisement for watches, the time is set to 10:10. Why 10:10? 

A watch dial is also called a watch face - and with hands at 10:10, the face of the watch looks smiling. This is how the watch advertisers think and the irony has crept into the point that sometimes you will get to see digital watch ads to be set to 10:10, even though it doesn't look like a smile.

There may be many other reasons too like:-The time 10:10, Abraham Lincoln died. That symbol looks like V and V for victory.In that time, the name of the brand is clearly seen.This position is symmetrical and human brain appreciates symmetry

But the best reason I like is the Smiling Watch Face.
So the conclusion is " WATCHES ALSO SMILE"  :):)

“Life is too short to live with regrets and bad memories". Every new day in our life is a gift from God so live it happily, laugh on bad jokes, dance like no one is watching. You never know this present day could be the last day of your life on this earth. Follow your passion and always move forward in all situations and dream big. Dreaming doesn’t come with price, dream big and work hard to achieve what you want. Don’t wait for others to motivate you, be motivated yourself. Whatever comes to your mind do it, don’t hold yourself back. Kiss your children, express your love to people everyday. No one wants to die with a heavy heart with pending agendas of life.

Surround yourself with positive people , they will never let you go in dark. Read good books, listen to good thoughts. I am trying to do all what is said above, and one thing I have realize that no one on this earth has the power to make you feel bad or depress. It’s your mind how you control it and act on a situation. I have stopped taking stress and have allowed the things take their own flow. If taking stress can solve a problem, than world would be a better place to live. One cannot solve a problem by taking stress. I think to be successful in whatever you are doing, one should have passion, big dreams and the ability to adapt the changes.

My aim in life is to write a book, and I know it’s a big dream. What’s the harm in dreaming big, it keeps me going. I write whenever I get time or sometimes I miss my most important work to write. It’s a passion for me now.  “DREAM BIG”. Don’t dream for small materialistic things, keep yourself moving to achieve big. You never know what’s in store for you. Don’t be afraid of failures, many successful people have more wrongs than rights in achieving their big goals.

Today I was scrolling my you tube page and out of chance saw a video tedex talk of a small child of 13 years of age. He was on his wheel chair, born with a disorder with weak bones which can be fractured very easily. Listening to him was so inspirational, he dint let that disorder take his zeal for life. He is a born singer doing raps with famous international stars and following his passion despite of the fact that he can never stand on his feet’s. And we make our small problems so big. People in the world are struggling hard and still happy and following their big dreams.

If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough. You are never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. Every new day is another chance to change your life. Always be thankful to God and feel blessed that you have got a new day to live. Not everyone gets this chance.

Say NO To Sexual Harrasment At Workplace

The legal bug in me always excites me to share something special with my readers which can be beneficial to them. I have been the member of the Sexual Harassment Committee which is referred as ICC (Internal Control Committee) in my previous companies. So lets take a look on what is Sexual Harassment at workplace and how it can be reported to ICC.

Sexual harassment of a woman in workplace is of serious concern. To tackle the problem of sexual harassment, the Ministry of Women and Child Development (“Ministry”),  passed the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013. So how this act came into existence? This act is based on Vishakha Guidelines. This Act was enacted after 16 years of the Supreme Court judgment in the case of Vishaka & Ors. vs. State of Rajasthan & Ors. (1997 (7) SCC 323) which was filed by NGOs because of the brutal gang-rape of a social worker while she was at work. The Supreme Court, in this case had held that sexual harassment at work place is violative of constitutional rights of women. Sexual harassment can be in office or at workplace related to office. Any molestation in taxi by an employee/boss/senior/junior while going to some other place related to work falls under sexual harassment at workplace. This is just one example. Ladies its high time you should be aware of your rights at workplace. Any place visited by the employee arising out of or during the course of employment including transportation provided by the employer comes under the definition of Workplace.

What is Sexual Harrasment- Sexual harassment is unwelcome sexual behaviour that’s offensive, humiliating. It can be written, verbal or physical."Sexual harassment" includes any one or more of the following unwelcome acts or behavior (whether directly or by implication) namely:(i) physical contact and advances; or

(ii) a demand or request for sexual favours; or

(iii) making sexually coloured remarks; or

(iv) showing pornography; or

(v) any other unwelcome physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct of sexual nature.
Sexual harassment results in violation of the fundamental rights of a woman to equality. It is basically subjective in nature, its all about how comfortable you are. For instance a pat on back by a boss on employee can be comfortable for one and uncomfortable for other. It all depends upon the interpretation of the person. Its all about how you feel, even verbal abuse falls in sexual harassment. Like statements " you old white cow, give me the status of work", such statements can fall under sexual harassment. Rude or offensive comments about gender identity can be sexual harassment. No woman shall be subjected to sexual harassment at any workplace. 
The constitution of ICC is mandatory for every Company having 10 or more employees and all the cases should be reported to ICC. More than 50% of the members should be female of the committee and one independent member to maintain the transparency of the committee. Any aggrieved woman can file a complaint of sexual harassment to IC within 3 months of the incident. The period within which one can file the complaint can also be extended to another period of three months. IC will inquire into the complaint and give both parties a chance to be heard and complete the inquiry in 90 days. During the inquiry process of being heard, neither party will be allowed to bring their lawyer.Post inquiry, IC will have to prepare an inquiry report giving recommendations on the matter, in 10 days, and give a copy of the same to the organization / company and the concerned parties. The organization / company will have to act on the recommendations in 60 days. The Act also provides that if a victim is dissatisfied with the findings of IC, she can appeal to a Court / tribunal. IC has been assigned with the responsibility to submit an annual report on the no. of cases that arose and got settled during the year to the company and the company further has been mandated to include this information in its annual report and in cases of companies which do not prepare annual report, the companies are required to intimate such number of cases to the District Officer.

The fact is, if the behavior of a sexual nature reasonably makes a person feel offended, humiliated or intimidated, then it’s sexual harassment.This cases should not be hidden and should be told openly in the organisation. Sometimes witnesses works in the best ways to solve the case. If you are facing any such actions in your organisation and are not sure what are they exactly, share it with your colleagues discuss with them and take it to ICC. That's your right.

YOU TUBE Video on how to take care of damaged rebonded hairs.


Who doesn't want long silky straight hairs. They look marvelous, and boost your confidence instantly. But everything comes with two sides, every positive has some negatives too. And in case of Rebonding Process, the negatives are more than positives.

Rebonding is a chemical treatment to alter the texture or structure of hairs. This includes lot of heat treatment and use of harsh chemicals. Depending upon the length of the hairs, the cost and the time differs. Now a days every one is fascinated with this treatment, even I was the same once. People who know me can connect on the fascination of straight hairs which I had when I started my training of my degree some 10 years back. I was very frustrated with my natural curls which used to take so much time every morning to settle down and agree as per my taste. So finally I decided to go for Rebonding. I remember I was in Noida that time and went to a parlor which my room mate used to visit. It was a decent place and daily 8-10 Rebondings were done as per the data provided by the owner. And one such day, I was the client. So the process took 6-8 hours and I paid some 8k for it. I was dead tired but the urge to get the straight hairs kept me strong and made me sit for so many hours. My first Rebonding was done and I felt so good, no more time wastage on hairs. You get up and you go. nothing is required on your hairs, so this goes well for some 6-8 months. And after that the real struggle begins, the new growth of hairs and trust me they look horrible much horrible than your original curls. So Rebonding gives you a short term happiness. After every 6-8 months the process needs to be done again unless you are comfortable in those new fizzy bad hairs. Its a addiction, you cannot live without it. I have done Rebonding 9 times, and its really cumbersome.

But this time I am not going for it anymore. Wow it gives a sense of relief. Rebonding makes your hairs very vulnerable and lot of care is needed. Good products can be a savior, and I finally found such few products which are helping me to maintain my hairs in smooth way.

Check these out and try and see if you really want that harsh treatment again :-

1.LOREAL PROFIBER SHAMPOO - This is a shampoo for damaged hairs, the unique ingredients leave a soft touch after every wash. Hairs get detangled easily and new growth doesn't look freezy. It comes in a beautiful shaped bottle, which is easy to use.

2.LOREAL  MYTHIC OIL MASQUE - This is a hair mask, simply apply on damp shampooed hairs and leave for 3-4 minutes and rinse thoroughly. It balance the natural oil balance in the hairs.The 200ml jar cost Rs 980/-

3. LOREAL MYTHIC OIL SERUM- This is a non greasy oil and transform the dull hairs into shiny hairs. It works well both on damp and dry hairs.

Personally I feel Rebonding is not good, just take care of your natural hairs with good products and you will be good to go. Experience teach the best lesson :)

Three Days in Pattaya- Six Family Friendly Activities

Pattaya needs no introduction or does it?
It is one of the most popular tourist destination. It welcomes everyone bachelors, couples, families and offers excitement and fun. It has everything tourists need. This city is full of life, there is a myth that Pattaya is only good for bachelors but it is not true. Its same for families as well. You will see many tourists families strolling on the roads, beaches. There are plenty of fun family activities. Three days are sufficient to explore the city if planned properly.

Look at the list of 6 family friendly activities:

1)PATTAYA BEACH- Its a nice place to hangout and relax with family. Let the kids play with sand and water and get the eyes meet with the breathtaking nature.  There are many water sports activities on the beach daily like banana ride, jet ski and many more. This beach is crowded most of the time, the water is not good for swimming it seems to be unclean. Just relax on the beach lounges and make memories

2) ART IN PARADISE Its an illusion art museum with 3D images.
The images are so illusionary, it feels like anytime they can come out and pop a question How are you? Kids will definitely love this place. Keep your camera ready and take plenty of photos. This place plays most important role in creating the photo album.


3) ALCAZAR CABRET SHOW- Its an impressive show where pretty ladyboys in glittering dresses entertain you. The ultra glam lights and sound gives you a feeling of a rock concert. its a multicultural dance and can be seen with family. Nothing Shady.

4)SRIBACHA TIGER ZOO-  You see here tiger show, crocodile show and elephant show. We saw Pig Race also, which was very hilarious. Crocodile show is best, you can get pictures clicked with crocodiles, tiger, elephants. I was scared in getting the picture clicked with tiger, which is a ritual when you visit this zoo. But my daughter was brave to get the picture. Its a huge zoo with lot of other attractions. I personally dint like it much and felt depressed watching the animals in cages. Tiger is king of the jungle and watching it in a cage performing on the actions of humans was quite saddening.
 5) TEDDY BEAR MUSEUM- This is must visit with kids. Thousand of teddy bears to touch and feel the happiness. its a huge museum and kids will definitely go mad. keep your camera ready to cherish the happiness on your kids face for life.

6) CORAL ISLAND TOUR-  Coral Island is one of the most popular tourist of Pattaya. It takes around 45 minutes to reach there by speedboat.  The beach there is very clean, you can indulge in some water sports like banana ride, underwater walk, jet ski and many more.
