What is your sneeze type ?

We all sneeze, and sneeze for the same reason – when some external irritants like dust, smoke, pollution, wind causes particles to enter our nose. The brain then sends a signal to get rid of them and we reciprocate by the act of sneezing.

The action of sneezing, being the same, I am often left wondering why there are different types of sneezes..The ones which I have noticed around are…

The loud ones, which often scares you out of your wits, more so, imagine, when you are deeply engrossed in a movie with a bowl of popcorn…the rest of the popcorn is history 🙂

The not so loud ones, but with a sprinkler of droplets of saliva spraying around 😦 (we had a teacher in grade 9, where the front benchers often experienced this. Luckily, for me, my height made me a back bencher, Phew !!( Small mercies of life:) )

The tiny e-sneezes, (where you hardly realize that a person near you has just sneezed), similar to the buzz of a notification on a smart phone.

The machine gun sneeze, multiple sneezes in a single bout of sneeze.

I’m sure, you would have many more types to add to the list above. Do list them out !

To the Wonderful Women Of the World…

Scattered like innumerable clouds all over the world,

Painting the beautiful sky with a different azure,

Blooming like beautiful flowers all over the world,

Creating the world with different roles & different hues,

Fighting different battles, losing some, defeated in some,

But I see you as the triumphant and victorious one,

Lessons to learn and courage to muster,

Playing varied roles of daughter, mother, wife & sister,

Oh ! Beautiful women around the world,

I salute you and to the joy of  womanhood !!



What is your Silhouette?

via Daily Prompt: Silhouette

“The best and the most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

Our aura, our radiance, our energy and our vibrations are all a silhouette of who we are. They can not be seen or touched, but can only be felt by us and people around us. When the light of life experiences fall on our soul, we emerge , we depict an outline of our being, which goes on to form our aura.

I’m sure, each one of you would have felt a feeling of discomfort on meeting certain people, and are totally at peace with a person you meet for the very first time. These are the vibrations, the energy, which attract or repel us from certain type of people.

These are my random thoughts, my random ramblings, hope you enjoy !! Please do share your experiences and thoughts.


“आधार” की ज़िन्दगी


आजकल की ज़िन्दगी 

बन गयी है आधार की ज़िन्दगी 

हर जगह मची हुई है उथल पुथल 

हर तरफ है आधार की ही चहल पहल। 


गैस सब्सिडी से शुरू हुई 

बैंक अकाउंट पर  ना हुई ख़तम,

लिस्ट में पी पी ऍफ़ , पोस्ट ऑफिस  के शामिल है नाम ,

हर तरफ फैलाकर जाल , आधार ने बड़े दिए है काम। 


इतने तक ही सीमित नहीं, पैन कार्ड, इन्शुरन्स, फ़ोन पर भी लागू 

कोई  बच पाया आधार के प्रकोप से,

मरने पर भी रखना आधार हाथ में,

वरना दाखला ना मिलेगा यमराज के दरबार में। 


परीक्षा  का  फॉर्म हो, या ट्रैन की टिकट कटवानी हो,

या फिर अपने ही पैसों के लिए अर्ज़ी भरनी हो,

आधार के बिना हम दो कदम चल  नहीं सकते,

 मित्रों, इस के बिना हम आगे बढ़ नहीं सकते। 


वह दिन दूर नहीं जब सैनिको को आदेश दिया जाए 

जब बॉर्डर पर निडर खड़े पहरा देते हो,और भारत माँ का झंडा लहराते हो,

उस पर भी आधार की मुहर जरूर लगाना

भई यह तो है आधार का ज़माना। 


ताज़ी हवा, स्वच्छ पानी हो, तो क्या गम ,

कूड़ा कचरा गन्दगी में भी ज़िन्दगी  जी लेंगे हम,

तो क्या हुआ अगर इनसे झूंझते ज़िन्दगी गुज़र जाए ,

आधार का टप्पा अगर ना हो, हम तो जीते जी ही मर जाएँ। 

Fone Free Sunday # 9

Hi All,

Yesterday, being the last Sunday of the month, was the technology free Sunday. An initiative started by my blogger friend Pradita from The Pradita Chronicles and me. An initiative to look at something other than your phones, devices, gadgets, laptops.

Yesterday, as my kids had to catch up with their homework and studies, I found time to complete my zentangle art, which I had started a few weeks back.

Here’s how it came out to be.

Had a good and satisfying time at the end of the day.

Do share your experiences if you did participate. Apologies, I couldn’t post a reminder, the day before.

How do you feel..

Emoticons, Smilies, Set, Smiley, Blue

How often do you come across situations, when you plan something and something totally different happens?

You plan to spend time with family/children and enjoy, but instead you end up arguing or disagreeing with one of the members and it upsets you.

You buy a surprise gift for your kids, and are all excited about it. When you give the gift to them, they are oh, I already have this/read this/ not interested 😦

You tend to just go for a stroll with friends and chat up with them, none of them turn up.

You’ve been on an outing with friends, one of them ends up having a difference of opinion with the other, a total misunderstanding, heavy and upsetting isn’t it?

You have just cleared up the table/kitchen counter after dinner, just ready to crash for a good night sleep, your kid comes running in and spills some water and there’s a huge puddle…

After winding up all work for the day, you have some time to yourself, to pick up a book and read, to sketch, paint or anything that YOU really enjoy doing.. and in comes a request for a small odd job or help with homework or a phone call…

You plan an outing, and have unexpected visitors….

I’m sure, the list is endless and each one of you would have definitely come across such situations. How do you deal with such disappointments? Would love to hear your opinions. Pour them in, I would love a spillage of thoughts here. 🙂
