A simple post

Hey friends,

Hope all you guys are doing good! Wish you all a Happy Makarsankranti and Happy Pongal πŸ˜€. I am enjoying my little Pongal vacation in Chennai right now. The first month of the new year and I am already travelling around πŸ™‚. January is already packed with Kutch as my next destination after ChennaiπŸ™‚.

I am here with my family for the celebration of Pongal festival and to attend my friend’s wedding.

All happy faces in one frameπŸ™‚. This little pumpkin, my nephew Baby Kiyaan has come along with us for his first Pongal and he is enjoying a lot. Though handling him sometimes becomes tough 🀨, but his smile makes things worth. He constantly nags me for many thingsπŸ˜“πŸ€ͺ, but his embrace comforts me. Sometimes, I just wonder what will I do without him or my husband or my motherπŸ™„. HahaπŸ˜‹

Anyways guys for now only this much. Hope you guys have already started working on things which you wanted to start in this new year. However, life is, don’t forget to smile! The smile is all that one needs, so don’t forget to carry one on your lips πŸ™‚


Humanity dies

Humanity is the greatest of all the religions.

Life could be simple,

But we make sure to complicate things.

I am proud to be born in a country

Where people of different castes and religions live together.

But humanity dies when these religions fight against each other.

Before belonging to any caste or religion,

One should remember that they are Humans first.

What we do today, our children will learn the same tomorrow.

It’s up to us what we want them to grow up into!

Our actions won’t only affect the world,

But it will affect the future of our own people first.

Violence won’t give us anything,

It will not only disrupt others,

But it will show its bad impact around us, on our own people too.

God has given us this wonderful life,

Live it in peace and don’t waste it by feeding hatred inside.

Be Human first,

And don’t preach wrong things in the name of Gods, religions or castes.

PS: My very first post of this year starts with the sad feeling inside. What is happening to the world, where has Humanity died. There is some issue going on since two days and whatever I have heard or seen makes me sad. If you want to know more about it, just search for ” #BhimaKoregaon ” incident .


Last post of the year

So today is the last day of the year 2017 and a goodbye post is needed πŸ˜‹

Well, I am appreciative for many wonderful things that happened this year and I learnt from some bad happenings that took place this year. Anyways, we all learn from our bad experiences and so did I!

Starting with the first month of this year, I surprised my husband by a small ring size tattoo that I made on my ring finger 😍.

Hepra here means initials of our names and this name was given to us by our friends πŸ€©πŸ€“πŸ˜‰

Then moving on to the month July, after lots of planning, I finally went on for a trip with my family to one of my favourite destinations in India- Kodaikanal πŸ˜„. It was such a wonderful trip and this place will never bore me πŸ™‚. Totally in love with this place 😍. Well I got to go to this place twice this year, one was in March with my husband and another was July like I said earlier πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ Lucky me ! πŸ˜…πŸ˜‹πŸ™‚

( A happy family picture πŸ™‚ )

The next beautiful thing was a small trip to Ahmedabad as I worked non-stop for months with no breaks even on weekends, so this small Diwali trip to Ahmedabad was much needed and was pretty amazing πŸ™‚.

The last best thing that happened was bestest of all and that was the pleasant surprise my husband gave me of Singapore trip πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜˜. I cannot describe in words the experience I had and the excitement that I had within me, as it was my first international trip πŸ˜ƒ.

Now it would be wrong if I don’t mention my nephew here who made my each day and every month wonderful merely by his presence 😘. He is the real joy of my life who has made sure that his aunt is not alone when she is stressed or sad. He not only was part of my happiness, but whenever I have felt low or too much stressed, talking to him, embracing him in my arms worked like a dose that instantly calms me πŸ˜‡. Baby Kiyaan, your Maasi loves you a lot and is thankful to God and obviously my sister 😜 for bringing you into our lives.

( Happy WE )

Well, one news that shattered us was our closest friend death news. We still can’t believe that he is no more between us. We miss you Tarun πŸ˜’ and especially when we are in Chennai, you would be the one who entertained us and made our stay in Chennai more pleasant.

All in all, I thank God πŸ˜‡ for the wonderful year, my husband 😘 for being supportive whenever I am busy and for the ultimate birthday surprise, my family 😘 for being there always for me and special thanks to Baby Kiyaan 😘😘 for keeping his aunt sanity in check. Goodbye 2017 πŸ‘πŸΌand Welcome 2018 βœ‹πŸ» with new hopes, new projects, and also I intend to blog more this year. Hope to get regular with my blog this year which I missed out in 2017 😐.


A long pending Thank You Note

Last month, I had two imperative occasions to celebrate. Firstly my birthday and secondly my wedding anniversary. I wanted to take a break from my work and wanted to go somewhere alone with my husband πŸ™‚. I was under the pretext that it won’t be possible this year as my husband won’t get any leave as he has important work to complete πŸ˜’ . But just two days prior my husband surprised me with Singapore trip πŸ˜€ and I was ecstatic as it was not only the pleasant surprise that he did all the planning and fooled me for the whole four months, but also because this was my first international trip.! Yes, it was my first πŸ˜‹ as I had always wished to explore my whole country first and then exploring other countries around the globe. But I truly loved his surprise and enjoyed the tripπŸ˜€. Looking through those pictures,That captures the happiness that we shared in those moments.Recollecting the excitement I had,Of the surprise that you gave me.Like a baby I embraced you,Thanked you for the gift.Whenever I see our trip pictures,I feel like going back and reliving all those moments once again.Those long walks at East Coast Park,The adventurous and thrilling experience at Universal Studio,The calm feeling inside the Sea Aquarium,The food that we cooked together,Those metros that we boarded,Those shoppings that we did,All that fun that we had still remains fresh.You made sure that I remember this trip forever.You made my birthday memorableAnd filled it with memories that I will cherish forever.


Ahmedabad- A visit to a beautiful city of Gujarat

Β  I am back with my another post and today I am going to tell you a few places that you can visit if you are inΒ  Ahmedabad. Last month amid Diwali time, I had been for a mini weekend vacation with my family to AhmedabadπŸ™‚. Located on the banks of Sabarmati river and a former capital city of state Gujarat, Ahmedabad is considered to be one of the fastest growing cities in India.Β 

As I had a very less time, I visited a few yet some of the most important tourist places. My first destination wasSabarmati Ashram( Also called as Satyagraha Ashram) , which is a must visit place in Ahmedabad. Once upon a time the great Indian freedom fighter, Father of our Nation Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi stayed there with his wife Kasturba Gandhi. This place emerged as a national monument as Mahatma Gandhi started his journey from this very place to free our country and playedΒ  a very significant role in India Independence movement. The entry to this Ashram is absolutely free and it is open from 8am to 7pm. This Ashram preserves the Charkha ( the spin wheel) that was used by Gandhiji. It displays the activities that were carried on by Gandhiji and his followers, his life stories, his work and a chance to see his house where heΒ  lived with his wife.


Our next destination wasLaw Garden. A small walk and lots of talk was all that we needed at that time πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜Š. After that we went for some street shopping just outside the law garden. It was very much crowded 🀨 and mostly all stalls use to open in evening. Then we headed to Manek chowk for some delicious street food πŸ•πŸ›πŸ°. We ordered pizza, sandwiches, dosa and Amdavadi styleΒ  Chocolate Rabdi Cheese sandwich as our dessert. If you are a foodie and would love to try different cuisines, you must try this place for street food in Ahmedabad πŸ™‚.

The next day we decided to go toAdalaj Stepwelllocated in the village of Adalaj. The stepwell is five stories deep, intricately carved and built in sandstone.


In the evening we chose to visitSabarmati Riverfrontand mind you it was one of the awesome and peaceful places, I have been in that city. The view of river Sabarmati and the peace that I felt as soon as I enter is incredible 🀩. You can also enjoy riding in a speedboat there. Though, I didn’t get a chance to ride in it, as a few local visitors were breaking the queue, pushing othersΒ  and were creating problems. I chose to step back as I wasn’t in a mood for this fuss 🀫. Otherwise, I have no complaints and one must visitΒ  this place and shouldn’t miss it. Considering this as one of the most recommended tourist places, the Government should appoint some employees here to manage things properly.

The last place that I had visited wasKankaria Lake. This is the second largest lake in Ahmedabad and has attractions such as toy train, water rides, a zoo and food stalls. We didn’t stayed there for much time and sat for only 15 minutes and enjoyed the evening view 😊.



Welcome Back….πŸ˜‡

I had a exceptionally bustling day today. And guess who joined me and my better half on our work today? None other than my little nephew BabyKiyaan😘. He was away on a small outing with his family and I missed his presence a lot. I met my little cutie after longest fifteen days 😘. I fall in love with him every time, I see his love for me❀️. β€œ Maasi Halo” (Aunty Lets go ) were his words when he saw me today and I ran to embrace my little baby. Mind you my dearest your hugs and kisses were missed every day! I and your Chotu (a pet name given by my nephew to my husband πŸ˜‹) had a very lovely time today 😘. 

(My husband and my Nephew gesturing me that they were not ready for a click πŸ˜…)  

Thank you for making our morning lovely by your presence and filling joy and happiness in our lifeπŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ™‚


A Candle of Hope

Sometimes we have to face a situation that we never think would occur in our life. We cry, we feel sad, but we have to go through it and face it no matter what. If we run away from the situation, we are avoiding the problem, but in reality our problem won’t leave us. So What should one do? The answer lies within you. First, there won’t always be happy moments in our life. One will have memories to cherish, happiness to celebrate, sadness and bad times that will help to learn a lesson or feel a new experience. In all this, one should try to move on with life with a hope that the time will be pass and soon the good times will replace the bad times. So just the way Diwali signifies the victory of good over evil, light a candle of hope in your life and that light will help you move on and will enhance the positivity within you.
