Yesterday was the day I truly felt my FIRST EVER PANG OF JEALOUSY and I know now, there are many more to come!

I want my daughter to NOT be a feminist but to be fiercely independent and courageous! (For now- she does her own shopping (bought wipes for her doll) and orders her own food! I AM SERIOUS!)

What we thought- And… Continue reading When Little things could make us happy!

Why these baby chicks… Continue reading Older sisters are an heir to DOMINANCE 😎
We have to wake up at 4:30 AM tomorrow and it's 1:00 AM already. Yet, NO PLAINTIVE CRIES. After all, each year, we would hanker for this day and this time of the year when we would get some good amount of “Dust-tasting” and our bile juices would churn nice and proper! Finally, the much-awaited… Continue reading Annual Escape from the then 4 S 🤪
Decades later, I am sitting listening to this new song from "Raazi" "Ae Watan, Merey Watan Aabaad Rahey Tu......shad rahey tu" (My beloved country, may you always prosper and be happy forever) After ages, like literally ages....my eyes moistened!
