This is the award, I received from SG In his words..........She is one of my favorite blogger. She writes on different subjects and is not afraid to voice her opinions.... I am feeling so humbled and honored and cant thank him enough. I always write what I feel and what I do and can never be a hippocrate.. I know this, but being acknowledged by others is a very different feeling and has made me feel at the top of the world:) Thank you SG !
Now i would like to pass this award to......(to me a blogger is more important than his/ her writing and its more important for me to like them as a person, then only I can read them, so please bear this idiosyncracy of mine, as I would write more about the person

SELLING OR.............

Just the other day we got a call from an agent of some insurance company to pay us a visit. Since my H knew her H, we said to her that she was most welcome but we cant assure her that we will do some investment. She found it OK and she came. With discussions we found she didnt have much knowledge about the returns and all that, so we asked her a few things to be chked up and told her we will do something in November. But she calls again to visit us..this is the way it goes..........
she: Sir, can I make a visit today?
My H: sorry mam, today I am very busy as our MD is coming and I will reach home very late.
She No problem sir, I can come at 8.30
Now my husband already gets very little time in the weekdays at home, so we didnt want to waste that talking to her, so my H comes home and calls her...
MY H: Mam, I am busy in the meeting and will reach home very late.
She: Sir, I can come around 9PM.
It was so difficult to get rid of her, she was not taking any hint and kept telling us h…


Reflections tagged me with a list of 20 some questions that you ask your kids, then you write up their responses as they say it & display the answers in your blog...And since here answers are to be given by my children I was waiting for them to take out time from their busy schedule:) and send me. So here they are..some more stuff about me, but from the eyes of my children... lets see how I fare? this is my litmus teat:)

Mama: What is something I always say to you?
Be a good human being.
Daughter: Honesty is the best policy.
Me: very happy to see that you remembered and followed it.

Mama: What makes me happy? Son: Love and respect.
Daughter: Anybody and everybody praising your kids :)
Me: so true:)

Mama: what makes me sad?
Son: Dishonesty.
Daughter: Seeing Poverty

Mama: How do I make you laugh?
Daughter: There are so many ways. For example, by spending oodles of time scouring for deals and then excitedly telling me that you found something and then me telling you that either you…



Strike is the word which should have been deleted from our dictionary, why for everything we stop work. Strike by pilots..I find it very unethical, they are one of the most highly paid people in the country and they are victimising the citizens as well as an airline. When we are opening the boundaries, salaries are reaching skies, we are inching towards being a developed country and here we want to go back to the days of unions, exploitations etc. When we want the high salaries, we must accept the hire & fire policy also. For a progressive country, employer must be free to do as he wants the same way as employees are free to take the job or leave it. Here they are not poor Majdoors being exploited...unless a company flourishes, employees cant benefit, and those who cant see it are short sighted. And it is literally criminal to inconvenience so many of your countrymen. At the time of recession, where any co. is fighting to stay alive, and employees harming their …

So what is the menu today?

Sandhya has tagged me for fast and furious songs, Sandhya I am still searching my mind to find them , the day I complete the nos. i will put them here.
Yesterday i was talking to my daughter and she joked that i always compelled them to eat brinjal(she dislikes it) or that they were not allowed to choose vegetables,they were supposed to eat whatever was there in the menu,as I wanted them to eat all the different vegetables, as it is nutritious, so i thought may be I did wrong, I should have pampered them like some parents do where children eat whatever they want, do wahatevr they want, behave as they want, becuase I have seen that children brought up without any discipline of any kind are very attached to their parents as they think that their parents loved them too much.....whereas my thinking was to always inculcate a certain discipline, to make them adaptable to different conditions, make them independent. and to give them healthy food, of course balanced with ocasional pampering.


Since I have come back I have been quite busy, first when I came my BIL and his family( devardevrani) were here. Then last Friday suddenly I got a call from my sis that her son was having high fever and hospitalised in VITVellore, so the next day I went there and brought him here and then my sis and BIl both reached here..this swine flu has scared everybody so much......When I see all my siblings so emotionally attached to their offsprings, I wonder, what is the reason,is it because all of them have a single child only? why today's parents are so emotionally vulnerable ?I always tell them to do their best for their children, but dont make them your life....In the long run it brings emptiness and hurt only.........
My sis and me talked non stop( as all the sisters do:) and we discussed many everybody says..daughters are more caring and affectionate etc etc..but I dont agree with that at all because children are children, we cant make gender based assumptions, it some…
