Thank you MOM!! 830

There is always a dimple on my face when someone says “I am a mirror image of my mother”. For me, that’s the bestest compliment that I ever get. I really feel blessed as my world revolves around my selfless mother.

Dear readers, I know we all are blessed with this beautiful relationship in our lives whom we call ‘Mother’ but I would like to take this opportunity on this special occasion to introduce the most powerful woman in my life.

My dear Mom, you are not just a housewife. You are much more than that. Now, let me remind you who you really are.

“Sublime” Cook

I still remember when I was in school, my friends and I desperately waited for Lunch time. Unlike everyone else, I used to get my lunch box 5 mins before the lunch time. The special woman in my life made sure that I always had the “hot meal”. I never carried my lunch box with me in the morning. She always cooked a lot of food so that my friends could also enjoy the yummiest food. The love dipped “hot-meal” made me super famous in school. Mom, Let me tell you there is magic in your hands. You are really the world’s best cook.

My inspiration

My mother is my inspiration. I’ve learnt the art of writing from her. I love the way she pens down every emotion, every thought and the journey of life. She never desired of getting anything published but I know the day she will get them published she will realize her writings are worth it.

An Artist

I wish you start painting again. The phenomenal touch of yours made the painting come alive. You seldom made any painting after marriage but the masterpieces that you have made are really beautiful.

The Performer

How can I pretermit the golden days of my life when my mother and I used to dance together? The classical dancer in you inspired me to be the one too. I wish to live those moments again.

An Awesome Vocalist

The nightingale of our house, my mother. Every night you used to croon and made us sleep peacefully. Your soothing voice is a blessing. Trust me mom, whenever I try my hand on singing, the only person I recall is you. Because of you, I developed the habit of listening to the old melodies. “yahi who jagah hai” topped the charts. I wish you realize that singer in you is missing you.

So apart from being the best wife, mother, daughter, daughter in law, sister, I just want to remind you mom, you are an amazing human being.  I know with age you and papa are flooded with responsibilities but I want you to live your passion again. You are worth all the happiness and nothing makes me prouder than hearing “ You are just like your mom”.

Thank you for being there always.

Thank you for making my life better.

Thank you for helping me in living my dreams.

Thank you for holding me when am low.

Thank you for all the love you show.

Thank you for teaching me the right things

Thank you for giving me wings.

Thank you for understanding my feelings.

Thank you for all the healings.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for correcting me when am wrong.

Thank you for every little thing you do.

Thank you for loving me and remember I love you too.

I dedicate this piece of writing to all lovely mothers because I know that this is what each one of us wants to say to our mothers today and always.

This little girl is afraid of lights…. WHY?? Watch the video! 232

A couple of days back I and my daughter witnessed an accident of a man with his child driving on a bike. Lot many people gathered at the spot and some helped the victims. I and my daughter stopped and helped the child who did not have any major wounds but was scarred here and there and was bleeding a little. The man too, but his back was hit badly to the road divider. Probably, I am afraid the inside damage may take some time to be revealed, though I hope he will be healed fully. The public started judging that the father must have lost control. Either he was driving with high speed or was on the phone while driving.

The truth was none of these reasons and the father had no mistake. The mistake was the car that sped away which drove in front of him while they were on the road in opposite direction. The father was at normal speed but when the car took a left turn and the high beam light blinded the father and he could not open his eyes. This made him lose control as he was caught suddenly. The car driver did not realize what he did or how he became a reason for someone to fall and so he just drove away. Luckily the father and daughter did not have any much damage, but what if something serious happened? Who is responsible for it?

Dear people, most vehicles have an option to dimmer your headlights. While driving in city limits keep your headlights dim and when in a darker and outskirts place you can make it higher. Many do not realize this and drive without even bothering about it. Please, do not be a reason of someone’s death knowingly or unknowingly. Do not take away a child’s father or mother just because you were too ignorant to check your headlights while driving. Here is a beautiful video that explains what I am talking. Share with your family and friends and spread the awareness. Because like you many just do not realize and once they know, I am sure people will be careful.

“I Fear a Relapse”, Says Deepika Padukone. 1379

The trailer of the most awaited Padmavati movie was released making us wait on a tiptoe for the movie to be released soon which is actually on December 1st, 2017 (See the trailer here). While on-screen Rani Padmini fights for her honor, the actress who plays the role, Deepika Padukone is fighting altogether a different battle in her real life.

While shooting for the Happy New Year movie, Deepika was fighting her inner battle of depression. Although she did not realize it then. Her mother who came to visit felt there was something wrong and requested Anna Chandy, a psychiatrist from Bengaluru to talk to her daughter. Though Deepika ignored it for a period of time, she finally recognized her problem and took steps to cure it. However, in a recent event, while talking about the Jauhar scene of Rani Padmini in the movie Padmavati, she revealed that she lives in a constant fear of a relapse of depression. She said “ I don’t think, I am completely over it. There is always a fear of relapse as that phase when it happened is the worst experience in my life”.

Since her opening up about her condition in public, there are numerous articles written about depression and there are plenty of suggestion available for someone who is looking for help. But, the truth is a lot many of the population who are suffering from depression do not know that they have it and they need help. Most of them try to think it is nothing but stress, fatigue and they are over-worked.

Like Deepika said in one of her interviews earlier while talking about her feelings during the time, being sad and being depressed are two different things. When someone is sad, they look sad, but when someone is depressed, most of the times they hide it. They try to behave normally while the feeling of emptiness keeps nagging at them. You do not have to be poor or have to lose something in life to be depressed. Sometimes the feeling of depression has no reason.

How to recognize the signs?

When someone is depressed, you may notice certain changes in them. Such as,

  • Less interested in daily activities
  • Loss of appetite and weight changes (can lose or gain)
  • being angry and irritable most of the times
  • less energised
  • self-loathing
  • reckless behaviors
  • Change in sleeping patterns

These are some of the changes we notice in a depressed person, not for few days but on a regular basis. If you spot these in someone or if you are facing it yourself, get help. There is no age or gender who are affected by depression.

Recognizing and understanding the symptoms of depression is the first step to finding a solution. Once you know, meet a good psychiatrist and get help. There is no shame in finding help to cure a mental illness. We meet our doctors for physical illness. In the same way, sometimes our mind also need that extra help too.

Do not, I repeat do not ever be afraid to ask for help!!! Because you might be surprised that there are so many good people around you who really care and want to help you.
