No introduction..no background stories..no memories nothing…just plain simple cravings…welcome to my chat filled outing.. To satiate my sudden cravings for samosa chat
I was too busy / greedily eating up my samosa chat, I put hubby to the task of clicking pics of his favorite dahi puri chat.. Giving him a chance of trying out his photography skills.. 😛
Yes of course it is a different story that I ended up eating 3 of those puris, cause hubby being the generous one lets me have my fill…hence the many pics of the dahi puri in all angles and close ups..
And while your at it, Please do stop by for some pani puri too… 😜
Today in India we celebrate Teacher’s day on the 5th ofSeptember every year to mark the importance of teachers in our lives and to honour Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday.
With time.. The perception of teaching and teachers too have changed and the pandemic has contributed a lot to how toddlers perceive school or education..
Being a working mother of a 5 year old, I have to, play the role of a teacher too thanks to schools being closed and attend online classes with her🙄it is back to school time for me too🙈
All parents of toddlers experiencing this can relate… Of course it is just kindergarten but I feel the kids are missing out on a lot of things apart from just education.. The basic interaction.. Sharing…meeting up friends..playing with children their age..The joy of school all seems too distant a memory now..
Hoping things revert back to normal soon..wishing all the Teachers and Parents a very Happy Teachers Day!!
Picked this one up from drafts..it states my life as a mother when Rhea( daughter) was a year old…
A quick post!! What with a one year old clinging to you everytime you pick up the phone to post something and then you are left wondering what was that you wanted to type??maid woes??new house rants??weight issues?? And then you feel post about this phase called being a mom!!!
Rosy and cute as it may sound..I am sure all parents out there especially mommies have been there done that so here I go
Yeah that’s how Rhea sleeps…
Even to this day…
Me, currently summarised in one word!!
Yup that’s me!!
Sleep dear sleep where art thou??!!
And this is what Rhea does..
Everyday I find myself mashing potatoes, lentils and rice for her, with a bit of spices for flavour and madam just refuses to eat and when I sit down with my diet food grumpy and starved she goes waaaaaaaa wanting to know what’s on my plate or wailing away until I pick her up!!
Ahhh so now the story makes sense🙃
Hanging on there…
Until next time, to all the mommies out there, sleep while you can..😴😴😴
Komorebi, theJapanese expression for the sunlight as it filters through the trees..
Trying to keep up with my morning walks… As I walk away at my home town Bangalore..can’t help but admire the beauty of this city….the place where I grew up…as the morning sun shines through the trees..the warmth and the sound of the birds fills me up with joy..even more a reason to wake up early, a beautiful way to keep oneself fit and sane in these trying times!!
As I bid farewell to June, my most happy month for reasons still unknown to me.. I look forward to an eventful rest of the year..(hopefully in a good way though)
I somehow feel this year went really fast initially and then the lockdown happened and things got slow again… So what have I been up to?!! Being on a break from work I realise how much I miss my surgeries.. With the usual mom..daughter in law duties..working on maintaining my weight..houshold chores ..all keep me real busy and of course I tried my best to be active on WP.. 😉
The last few days of June saw me heavily “Pms”ing according to my friend with whom I keep in touch through voice messages, as she has a really busy schedule and given that both of us aren’t free at any time of the day..
We catch up with each other through technology’s boon “Voice messages” I record them when I go for a walk and she replies back in the early hours when the whole world is fast asleep… So during one of my conversations with her, I had ranted about how I felt used by friends only when they need my medical advise! Yes I had a lot of queries from people about vaccination.. When the news channels ..tabloids..all have info about vaccination.. I was still bombarded with questions regarding the same.. And I felt like I was a free doc at hand for many..
Also many friends and acquaintances who dont even ask me how am I doing, just send a message asking for eye consultations..suggestions on vaccine and covid related treatment.. Of course being a doc and a friend and an acquaintance, I feel obliged to comply but when you feel you are being used only for this and at normal times you don’t even get a how are you message or an occasional call is when you feel really upset.. Especially when it’s from close group of friends..
So when I ranted out these to my voice message friend she pointed out #1 I was “Pms”ing.. Which was true🙈 #2 She told me people looked upto me hence this suggestions seeking behavior.. Ok I partly agree to it… 🙄 #3 She told me about how Cats and Dogs feel..😱 A Dog feels my owner loves me so he is GOD A Cat feels my owner loves me so I must be GOD…
So she told me to look at it either way.. Either I think like a Dog and feel people use me for their needs or think like a Cat and feel I am soo good hence people come to me..🙄 so I should feel superior about it… Whatever..😤
This thought really struck me.. Making me realise it’s all about how you look at things yet again.. So thus, I walk into July, a partially enlightened person, thanks to my voice message friend..😈
Hope to take things as they come..Happy doctors day to me and all the docs out there 🤗
