Celebrate Festivals, Celebrate Life and Create Memories!

 

This evening, I saw placards in the hands of kids instead of crackers. The messages were ‘Save Earth’, ‘Say No to Crackers’ and the like.

Disappointing, very disappointing!

At this rate, the only childhood memory that kids will have is spending time on their screens, phones & tablets! When they reminisce about childhood after growing up, what will they talk about – Tablets, phones and apps?

Not fair – we, the grown-ups have ruined the Earth for them and we expect them to take the so called ‘corrective steps’.

 

  • Will all of us stop using our cars?
  • Will we stop using leather, plastics, CFCs?
  • Will be cease our ubiquitous constructions and create more playgrounds?
  • Will we spend more time with loved ones?
  • Will we reduce our air travel to create less of a carbon footprint?
  • Will be reduce tuitions and ‘special’ classes?
  • Will we allow every kid to pursue their real interests?
  • Will we stop consuming or working for these global brands that are polluting our ground waters 

NO, right?

 

 

Just one day in the year when we get to burst crackers, and it is a no-no citing ‘Saving the Earth’! What about the torture reaped on Mother Earth on the other 364 days?

Already ‘Mithai’ has been replaced by ‘Chocolates’, ‘Motherly Love’ by so called ‘Aaya’s Love’, ‘Lighting Lamps’ replaced by ‘Switching on bulbs and candles’, ‘Rituals’ replaced by ‘Lethargy’.

So, what is left to take away from them? What experiences are we leaving for our kids? We are literally snatching ‘The Essence of Childhood’ from them!

Like an array of lamps creating a beautiful image, let us create a string of wonderful memories for our kids that would make for a great life! 🙂

Celebrate Festivals, Celebrate Life & Create Memories!!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s day is a day dedicated to love!
The best part is – this isn’t restricted just to the love in couples. This day denotes love which can be for anyone, mother, father, friend, beloved, even humanity wala love, love towards pets and nature …any kind of love!
Love makes the world go around and this day is there for us to pause and realise!
Life sometimes makes us so busy that we forget to smell the roses – inhale those beauties today! We put off letting people know how much we appreciate their roles in our life – today, take a minute to drop that note or make a quick call!
Let there be love in the interactions, the smiles, the gestures and in each relationship.

Life is a Roller Coaster!

Life is a Roller Coaster!
You will have your ups, you will have your downs, sometimes you will be flowing freely and other times you would be upside down!
Make sure not to close your eyes and miss out the beautiful views! So, enjoy the ride while it last! Live it to the Fullest!

Change Happen When You Change!

To achieve great things, you must be ready to upgrade the current you to a new version, for Change happen when you Change! 
We always use the phrases – a new me, a new year, a new way of life and so on. Holding onto the old selves may not prove to be the ideal way for someone wishing to change. Just as the farmland has to be cleared to make way for the new crop to be sown, we will have to step out of our comfort zones and destroy the old self to become a new person. The old habits and the old behaviour will do little to enable a new way of life.
Change happens when you change! 
If you are not happy with your job, work on your resume and start looking for a different job. If you are not happy in your relationship, come out of it and start living for yourself! If you are not happy with your current house, decorate it, change it, give it a new shape!
If you are going through tough time, step out, meet people, travel, experience, no body can change it for you! You are the one who has to take the right step to make your life better!
You are the one to make change happen!
Change starts with us, when we start to change!
