Hope all of you doing good😀? Well its Diwali time in India, and the preparations have already started😊. Almost a month prior, cleaning of our house becomes utmost important for us. Almost in every household, before Diwali this is the most important thing that rings a bell🙍🏽and obviously later would be cooking delicious different sweet desserts👩🏽🍳.
Now people who don’t know what is this festival all about, I would like to say something about it. Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights which signifies the triumph of good over evil. It is a five day celebration where people decorate their homes and light them to show the power of light over darkness. Gifts and sweets are bought and exchanged with families and friends. Rangolis are made in homes and the house is lightened by diyas all around.
Now I and my husband got time yesterday for cleaning our home and I know that we are already late😕! So we had to clean in a day’s time and that’s a big task in itself😐. So we started around 1pm in the afternoon and without any breaks in between, we went on constant till 7pm and we made it, we cleaned our house🤓. Still, we had to shop for a few things and after quickly taking shower, doing our evening Pooja we left for our other task. We were just on water the complete day and were very hungry🙁, but we made sure we bought our stuff first and then thought of relaxing! We came back at home late 12:30am, with happiness on our face of making sure our Diwali is full of lights and happiness around😄.
Though today, we got up with severe pains in our body🤕🤧😓 and still we have to do a few things before our Diwali days start. Doing things together, be it cleaning or shopping or decorating, I enjoy it completely and thanks to my husband who made sure I am not alone in anything👫. Love him for doing everything possible and not thinking that it’s only my job to do. Celebrating Diwali together with your family adds up to your happiness and I will surely miss my family who is on a small trip to our village and especially my nephew Kiyaan 😘who is too away on a trip. Will upload some photos soon on my blog 🙂.
So guys Wish you a very Happy Diwali🎇🎉 and enjoy your Diwali and be safe and let others be safe too. Spread Happiness 🙂.
Don’t ask questions to someone,
Whose answer you know is going to hurt you.
Because it won’t have any impact on the person who is replying,
But it will definitely affect you
And hurt you within.
It’s not possible to make everyone understand,
And if you have to repeat the same every time,
You need to realize that
The person is never going to understand you or your feelings.
So one must accept the fact and stop expecting from others.
So today I am going to review one more movie. Yesterday I went out to watch Toilet-Ek Prem Katha (Toilet- One Love Story) with my brother and my husband. It was one great movie and definitely a worth watch.
Now the story revolves around the husband named Keshav whose wife left him in the initial days of the marriage because there wasn’t any toilet in his home. Yes! You heard me right. Now this might seem a very funny reason for divorce to a few people, but there are millions of people in India for whom having a toilet is a luxury. Now, back to the story, once his wife abandons him, he sets out on a mission of building a toilet in his village, where for people building a toilet at home is not acceptable because of their age old traditions and beliefs that doesn’t allow impurities or waste related things in their home where their God resides. For them, it’s like insulting their God by having dirt around. On one hand, convincing his father who is a pure Pandit and on the other hand saving his marriage, Keshav fights and wins his wife back by fighting against the beliefs that has been followed for so many years.
Long back, I had blogged on how Defecation is a big problem in my country India. Millions of people defecate in the open due to the non availability of the toilets. Due to the lack of sanitation facilities, poor people are left with no choice except defecating on the roads or in the garbage area or near railway tracks or behind the bushes and so on. Some people even use plastic bags for the toilet matters. Due to this, the hygiene level is zero and the lack of hygiene in return increases the chance of diseases and the health problems. Not only this issue is being faced in the villages, but also, in the major cities too. The problem is not that government isn’t ready to provide proper toilets to them, but in some part of India, there are people who believe in defecating in open and not having a toilet. In some villages, women specially have to walk and go far for defecating. Defecating behind the bushes increases the chance of animal attacks like snake bites. Also, women need privacy during their menstruation period, which is not possible due to the lack of toilets or latrines availability. This not only has the bad impact on their health, but also, affects their dignity. But, even after knowing this, there are many who continue to defecate in open and don’t even consider this as a problem. I have even read that, a few women try to avoid their meals per day so that the need to go to toilet reduces. This in the future will not only affect their health, but also would bring various health risks.
This motion picture precisely display the issues, convictions and how people must change with the change around. It shows how Keshav fights for his love, his wife’s right to have a toilet at home, making people believe that defecating in open or even in the river is as good as disrespecting God. This movie is based on the true events and is a must watch movie and spreads a great social awareness among us “No toilet, No wife.”
For change in our life, we just can’t be dependent on one person, even we need to change to have a change around or in our life.

Sometimes you are happy,
By seeing others happy.
One does everything to please them, to maintain their happiness.
But at times, those things come at a cost.
The path of making others happy is not easy,
One has to sacrifice a lot,
Also sometimes one’s own happiness.
Making others happy is good,
But it could cost a lifetime sorrow for some.
Even after all this,
The most difficult part of the life is,
Keeping a smile on the face,
So that no one can see the actual darkness lying within you.

Yesterday, my mom insisted me to watch Mubarakan movie, which I was initially reluctant to watch. But after tiring work day and my hectic schedule, I deserved some leisure time for myself and so I decided to join my family to watch this movie 🙂. Well, I don’t regret my decision at all because after watching this extremely entertaining and hilarious movie, I was feeling refreshed and calm 😀.
Mubarakan is a comedy movie based on twin brothers and their love story. The story revolves around their families who start searching for brides for their sons, unknown to the fact that their sons are already in love with someone.
This is the first time, when I saw my husband laughing so much while watching a Bollywood movie 😮! Yes, well my husband is a Kollywood and a Hollywood movie fan and he rarely watches Bollywood movies. The one he watches are purely because of me😋, as I hate watching movies alone 😕! Not only me and my mom and my brother, but also my husband enjoyed watching this movie. The main lead, the actors Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor did truly well 👏🏼. Ratna Pathak (one of my favorite actresses) also did a great job as a supporting role and I always enjoy watching her part in any movies. All the characters were good and the humor in the movie was awesome too. For me, it’s a must watch movie 😄.
So guys don’t miss watching this movie, I guarantee a full two and half hour of madness 😆and laugh😂 and fun 😃and you won’t regret watching this movie at all 🙂.
Reliving the moments, I had with you,
Each place I visited reminded me of you.
Those lanes, our long walks, the beautiful weather,
The bench on which we sat and had witnessed the beautiful nature.
Though you are far,
Let me tell you I miss you.
All I wish now is to see you soon,
Share my journey, which was incomplete without you.
