To inhale the musky aroma of earth that crops

Sweet Dream- #WOW

 

My friends asked me to come to Nilgiri Hills, Bangalore for a weekend party at 7pm. As planned, I started for the same and reached the planned place on time but there I found none of my friends. I waited for some time thinking that out of curiosity, I have landed before time and shortly they will join. I tried to connect my friends Abhi and Ketan but could not connect due to network connectivity.

I parked my bike on one side of the road and started playing games. After half an hour, a message blinked on my mobile to walk towards the hill and there is a surprise for you. I could not understand what the matter was and ambled towards the Woods. I was bit apprehensive.

As I ambled further, I saw dozens of lighted candles parked on both sides of the way and a table laid in middle. It was a sight to Watch. I became conscious of my dress because I had dropped in casuals thinking that it was a party with common friends and casuals are comfortable.

I turned back to return because my mood was dampened due to my dressing style. As I turned, a sweet voice froze my steps. I could not understand what was going on with me.

Invitation in woods, table laid but none of my friends were there as decided and now a voice stopping me.

An unknown fear gripped me. I mustered courage and turned back in the direction of the voice and found a girl standing dressed beautifully in a pink gown. My heart missed a beat. I could not believe my eyes.

My eyes settled on her and unconsciously, I started moving towards her. The apprehension that was hovering since I reached Nilgiri Hills vanished in the air.

When I reached close to her, I was astounded to find my college junior Tanvi standing near the table.

“Hello Karan.” Tanvi greeted with a big smile.

“Yes Tannvee” I stammered, I was more nervous because of my casual get up.

“Be seated Karan. Your friends will join soon. It is a bash organised by me to surprise you.” She said.

“Bash in woods with so many candles. Is there anything special today?” I asked. I was bit relaxed and took my seat.

Tanvi too took the seat and she was staring my face with a big grin spread on her glowing face.

A Waitress approached with a big tray and left the place keeping the tray on the table. There was a gift pack in the tray

Tanvi opened the gift pack and strapped the watch on my wrist.

I resisted and asked her to explain the reason. It was an expensive watch and without reason, I did not wish to accept the gift.

She kissed my hand making me uncomfortable and told me that it was a token to accept her proposal for a friendship from a special friend and if all goes well, they will settle as man and wife for life.

A loud clap broke the silence of the hour and this time, they were my silly friends and it was a combined planning to surprise me.

“Relax friend. Accept her proposal. We know you like her too. Give a kick to your heart.”

I felt someone kicking me. I opened my eyes to see who the person was. It was my younger brother kicking me to wake up, I was getting late for my job-training.

It was a beautiful dream and my heart longed for Tanvi. I fixed up in mind to call her and convey my feelings for her which was bottled inside me since long.

The writing prompt for this week is ‘Waitress, Wood And Watch’

#H for Homemaker- #A to Z CHALLENGE













      “Homemaking is a passion you can pass on from generation to
generation.
― Elizabeth George
Day before yesterday, I had been to parlour for a routine
haircut. I found the parlour lady annoyed today unlike other days when she
passed a sweet smile. She told me that she was bluffed by some online home
shopping portal and she was on verge of losing 1500 rupees. Out of my habit, I
told her to interact with customer care and get it sorted out.
She busied herself to get the things straightened and her
helper assisted my cut.

“You sort it out, I am fed up with your services.”

“I am not a homemaker and I don’t have free time to run
after you” The lady was speaking to customer care over phone.

The second statement provoked hundreds queries in my mind.

How a woman can say so for a homemaker or a housewife? Many
questions rattled inside me. How can one ridicule the job of a homemaker?

It is a full time job and it requires lot of patience and
perseverance and this beauty parlour madam blew it out of proportion.

People belittle the job of a housewife and think that the
homemakers are just a time pass.

If you introspect it closely, you will find that it is a job
of 24*7 and it has to be carried patiently taking care of needs of all at home,
home décor, attending to guests and much more?


If one is working, one walks out of home on time and many
times, it happens that you leave the house job in mid and walk out to attend
the office on time.

Many times, a working person home job is overlooked and
people at home support her but the homemaker has to do all by herself as
onlookers and family members think that she has no work because she is not
working in office.

There are many instances when the better half comments his
wife that she is good for nothing and what work she has at home that keeps her
busy.

Normally people don’t understand the complexities of a
homemaker, especially the one with young kids and parents.

Let’s see what Tarun says.

Tarun had picked up habit of ridiculing Radha and it was his
common monologue, “What you are busy in, whole day?”

Radha got irritated but did not show any reaction to cover
up the matter and maintain silence at home.

One day when Tarun entered the house, he found the whole
house toppled down. Not a single thing was on place, utensils littered on
dining table, paper lying in the living room floor, baby too was wearing a
dirty uniform.

He called out Radha but there was no reply. When he went
into the bedroom, he found Radha sleeping. After calling her name loud, she
opened her eyes and was surprised to see Tarun standing.

“Radha, What have you done to the whole house?”

“Tarun, I did nothing today” Radha replied.

“Whaat” Tarun burst out loud.

“Yes, I did nothing.” She shouted on top of his voice.

Pin drop silence followed for ten minutes.

“Every day, when I attend all the household chores all by
myself, you say that what work I have. Today, I left all except for feeding my
baby and see what home has turned into” Radha told Tarun.

Tarun’s head hung in shame and he could only utter, “Sorry
Darling. Now I realise. Sorry.”
This is not a single case of Tarun and Radha. There are many
Tarun and Radha in our society.

Homemaker is a full time job and she looks for praises
praised from heart. Don’t belittle her initiations rather applaud her. Help her
and share her job, when you are at home. She will love your presence and her
morale will be boosted.

Appreciate her initiative and feel her loved.

Harmony With Nature

                                                                                       Source

My nephew said, “Maasi, we are destroying so much of water
and petrol and I am concerned about my child’s future, at this rate of
consumption, much won’t be left for them and how will they survive.”


My reaction was worth a capture, though none captured. My
mouth wide open and my eyes bulging out.

This statement was from my nephew who is only ten years old.
I just could not believe that a lad of 10 can be so much concerned about his
coming generation and we are not. I was awestruck by his statement but I did
not open up with my reaction rather I passed a joke at his statement.

“Hey, hold on. Live your life, you are a kid now and you are
thinking of your kid and future, it is a long way to go.” I brushed him.

I told my sister, “Your kids are truly amazing and are
farsighted, we don’t think on this wavelength but they do.”

We both laughed at them but it wasn’t a joke. It is a well-read
fact.

Our ancestors believed on it and they worked on it to save
nature and that was the reason that they loved to stay in villages and had
plantations in acres of land, ponds, goats, cows and buffaloes and fish rearing
was done in the ponds and lakes. The basic reason of this arrangement was to
balance eco-system and the whole system helped in conservation of nature and
people of those times were physically healthy and mentally sound.

Gradually people moved to urban areas and wound up the
agricultural land and the flora and fauna was destructed. People were more
concentrated on jobs and studies and did not pay heed to nature and the whole
balance of nature was disturbed.

Today, the scenario is very disturbing. The change in
lifestyle, deforestation, reduction in wildlife, flora and fauna mismanaged the
eco-balance of nature and the impact can be well seen. There is tremendous change
in temperature, the heat spell is on rise, the sheets of snow precipitating,
greenery has shrunk, hence monsoon season is at worst, so altogether heat is on
rise and the scientists working on it are disturbed at the nature rage.

Who is responsible for the rage in nature?

Very well, we human beings who toppled the whole system in
ambition to become mechanical and now if we really wish to Save Nature, we need
to work on it and the best way is to make our children aware and their change
in lifestyle and ways will add in to conserve nature and they will have better
mental and physical health than us and a better environment to live in.


  • Make them aware of the natural things of nature.
    Start planting seeds in pots and teach them to water them on time, weeding out
    the soil.
  • Put off lights in day time and engage them in
    physical activities weaning them away from mobiles, laptops, and television.
    Ask them to make a group of friends in neighbourhood and play outdoor games.
    This way energy will be conserved and emittance of poisonous gases will be
    slowed down.
  • Refrain from using air-conditioners 24*7. I have
    AC at home but we use it for two hours a day. Teach kids to avoid sitting in AC
    for long. It’s better to tell them the negative effects of it on nature and health
    and I am sure, they will understand. The habits can’t be changed in a day but
    initiation will gradually work on them. The kids of today are amazing, they
    need proper guidance.
  • Refrain from using plastics and encourage use of
    bio-degradable articles which will perish with time.
  • Make group of kids in communities and teach them
    to clean the open spaces around and water plants around. This way, they will
    learn the work and the place around would be clean and free from insects and
    mosquitoes.
  • Ask them to feed street dogs, cows and cats with
    the leftovers of kitchen or their tiffin, this way the grains won’t clog the
    drains and a life will have its share of food and a waste will be avoided.
  • Teach them the value of water and energy. Ask
    them to close the taps properly and use water without wasting. Teach them to
    put off lights, fans and other gadgets when not in use.
  • Teach them to play with nature, jumping on
    grasses, climbing trees, watering plants, weeding weeds out of soil and arrange
    contests so that they participate heartily, this way, they will develop
    competition to do better and enjoy the games with nature and slowly will fall
    in love with nature. My school mate has started initiation in this regard and
    her project Eco-kids is doing wonders in this arena. 
These things cannot be done in a day, even Rome wasn’t built
in a day. The regular grooming will bring in change and the wonders can be seen
in due time. It will take time and effort but regular persistence will bring in
dominant change.



To bring in a change, we need to change ourselves first and
initiate the job. Children learn by imitation so our initiative will bring in
changes. The bookish knowledge won’t help.


I am adamant to bring in the changes and I have started the practice
in this direction of conservation and am sure my kids will do in a much better
way.


If all join hands together, the whole scenario of nature
will change. We will have layers of mist laden grass carpets to tread each
morning, beautiful flowers will bloom in our balcony and garden, sparrows will
chirp on the window sill and we will have our share of winters, snow, rain and
thunders and summers in its due time. Our eyes will have treat of snow-capped
mountains, juicy fruits, waters in rivers and lakes and a beautiful morning and
evening to stroll and play.


My nephew will be happy that his kids are going to have
natural resources in abundance.
It is the right time to press Ctrl S and save nature from
depleting.


“I’m blogging about how I’ll remind kids to press Ctrl+S for nature for the Shortcut Safaari weekend activity at BlogAdda.”

Global Warming- – #A to Z Challenge 2016

G

 

 

Oh Man,

Stop razing me

I am storming in fire

Losing my radiance each day

My cries hear none

My womb is on fire

I fear

I might lose my promising children.

 

Water, water water

Everywhere

Not a drop to drink

Waters might engulf me

In their tentacles

Drowning me deep forever.

Men,

I pray and plead

Have mercy on me

Trust nature

Save Green

Give me time

To regain my sheen.

I feel proud

When my children

Play on my breasts

Adore the voices

Of playing life.

 

Endorse a campaign to save me green

The heat spell is shooting me down

Tears roll

Watching the glaciers melt

Trees mowing down

Life going extinct.

I wish to live long

Survive

To enjoy

The mystic beauties of nature.

Here,  I is The Earth, who cries out to save her from the calamities of nature. The global warming impact is quite dangerous for the life to survive, hence, it needs to be checked out by changing the habits of the inhabitants residing on it, who has taken nature in his own hands.

Global warming impact can be felt, the changing seasons, winters and snow disappearing and the heat spell is increasing day by day posing threat to life.

#G for Genital Mutilation of Females – #A to Z CHALLENGE

The term Genital Mutilation of Females was unknown to me till I read a
recent article on it and it raised my hairs and I shivered with fear. How can
people be so inhuman to girls and women and compel her for genital mutilation
to put a capping on her sexual urges for no medical reasons.

Imagining the plight of females undergoing this painful
procedure is dreadful, then just think what trauma the girls would be facing.

Who are we to suppress the natural urges? The person who
undergoes this surgical intervention mostly lose their mental balance and
suffer from depression and other psychological disorders.

Once I thought our country India was conservative and narrow
minded and responsible for females plight but when I read that this practice is
going in UK, Africa, Sudan, Indonesia and many more, I thought our country was
better and not involved in this process.

It is a traditional process and generally the procedure is carried out
by quakes and it is a surgical cumbersome procedure and the
reason behind it is gender inequality and to suppress the sexual urge of a woman,
demeaning to be an object of enjoyment for men and to give birth to children.
In many cases, the aperture is left for urination and periods and later on by
surgical intervention, mouth of vulva is opened for consummation and
childbirth.

We should hang ourselves in shame. A man is an enemy of man
then only they can bear to make the women suffer.

FGM is often considered a necessary part of bringing up a
young girl properly and a way of preparing her for marriage. It is thought to
reduce a young woman’s libido, thereby ensuring pre-marital virginity and
marital fidelity.
In many communities the long-standing prevalence of the
procedure leads to pressures to conform to tradition, making it difficult to
end the abuse.

My hands tremble and shake to write about genital
mutilation.

Please do follow the links to get aware of the atrocities
done to women and how they are oppressed.

Stringent laws should be enforced to stop this barbaric act.

It is a way to abuse a girl.

We should unite to put an end to FGM.
