I’m Thankful for the tag.

Hi All,

A big thank you to Pradita Kapahi from The Pradita Chronicles for my very first tag. I’m just feeling excited, typing this out.

Pradita’s blogs are exceptional and I simply love her blogs. Her command over the language and her way with words flow so freely and it’s from the heart. I am amazed at her ability to do so. Please do visit her blogs at

Now for the rules of the game –

  1. Name 3 things you are thankful for
  2. Nominate some fellow bloggers to continue the TAG
  3. Device a logo for your tag.

The 3 things I’m thankful for..

  1. My health – Health is wealth, so goes the saying and I’m a strong believer of this. If you are healthy, you can achieve anything in life. If your health fails you, your dreams, your ambitions will just remain so and will make you stressful and anxious. So health is number 1 priority.
  2.  My present – I’m thankful for my present life. I feel, it’s a present to me from the almighty. He has placed me comfortably well, with a loving and caring family to fall back upon, wonderful kids and a bunch of good friends. 🙂
  3. My followers : Yes, my followers on my blogs, and the likes and comments inspire me and help me think through different aspects of life through different perspectives. I thank each and every one of you for being there to read and appreciate my work. A big hug to all of you.


I nominate the following fellow bloggers for this tag.

Sheetal, Priya Pandian, Malini, Namratha D Prabhakar, Karthik, Fortunately Human and Reena Saxena

Thanks a lot for reading. Have a nice day 🙂

What’s your Label

via Daily Prompt: Label


We often become judgemental about people and label them or tag them in varied ways…cute, haughty, angry, proud, rude, funny, so full of himself, stubborn, grumpy, irritable….. and then, we base all our future communication with that person having that judgement as a base in our mind.

Have you ever thought of what is your label ? Have you ever labelled or given a tag to yourself ? What would your label read ? A point to introspect…..


via Daily Prompt: Nervous


It was a few months back, when I was watching the movie “MS Dhoni – The untold story”, with my daughters. All going fine, a few comments, usual household scenes unfolding at home, while watching the movie, relaxed and easy.

There comes a scene in the movie where there’s an accident, car and a van collision. The sound projected in the scene almost makes your heart skip a beat, shaking you off the calm and sombre atmosphere of watching the movie. The sound hit us all of a sudden and my little daughter gave a nervous shriek.

A  few days later my husband was watching the same movie. Nearing the car accident scene, my little one said, ‘Papa, you are going to get a heart attack’. We were all puzzled at her statement and my elder one immediately got on to her job to say,  you are not to talk like that. It’s not done. To which, my little one blurted out, why? The other day while watching this scene, even I got a heart attack.

We all understood the intention of her statement and had a hearty laugh.


via Daily Prompt: Desire


When we desire,

We aspire,

To reach higher,

To want more, and to acquire.

We raise our expectations,

We raise the bar,

We try hard to cross the bar,

But neither we reach, nor are we at par.

In one more page of life,

We are penning friction and strife,

We are sketching sadness,

In the lookout for happiness.

We think, happiness is elusive,

Looking for it in the outer,

Little do we realize,

It’s neatly stacked in the inner.

If you want to be in the good books of life,

Pen down contentment and peace,

Aim for desires, which you can reach with grace,

Satisfaction, happiness, you’ll surely find, with ease.

via Daily Prompt: Jiggle


We human beings, could be compared to a jelly. We jiggle a bit here, wiggle a bit there and find a cozy spot to snuggle ourselves, into our comfort zone.

We do not want to budge from there, even though we get a nudge to try out new opportunities, in the apprehension and anticipation of being privy to a judge. We latch on to our” good girl/good boy” image, and we look for a hundred reasons to catch on to the wedge of our comfort zone.

We are a unique lot. We would jiggle and wiggle at our current bevel, but would not climb up to notch, the next level.
