Monday Moods : Why You Should Spend Some Time With Yourself - The Essence of Me-Time

Monday Moods : Why You Should Spend Some Time With Yourself – The Essence of Me-Time

Have you ever wondered
At the bliss of solitude?
To be speaking to your own mind,
And listening to your soul?
When the city sleeps,
And downpour drenches the concrete,
I knock my heart awake
And hear its words through the beat…

As bewitching as the wonders of the world,
Is the moment when my own bond,
The heart, mind and soul –
Entwined together in a connection so electric,
That pierces my very being –
Unfolding desires from deep within,
And transpiring a moment of truth,
As a profound experience burns through…

Hi everyone! Hope you’re doing good on a Monday. It’s quite some time that I posted something in Monday Moods, you can blame it on the busy weeks that I’ve been through. I have been looking forward to share this with you – the power of solitude. As much as we may be called social animals, a serene moment of solitude can sometimes be pure bliss. 🙂

Ten Ideas To Pamper Your Mom Every Once In A While

Hi everyone! This post could have meant specifically something for Mother’s Day. Most things in this post do actually imply that. Except that it’s not. 🙂 How about a little something for your mother every once in a while? Her children are her priorities, and so should be she for us. Most of us are caught up in the whirlwind of establishing our careers, doing every possible thing and dedicating a major part of our waking hours towards that. But what when we realize that our goals are no less important to our mothers as well? The realization is huge. They are pillars of strength on which we build our well-being and future. We want to achieve success to make her feel proud. We do understand her need of feeling happy too. And we want to show her love. But how often are we able to do that?

Vegetable Au Gratin

Sunday Diaries : What’s Cooking? Vegetable Au Gratin It Is!

Hey all the lovely people! Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday. I had a terrific day out last Sunday at the Quest Mall, Kolkata. Experienced the visual extravaganza that is Baahubali 2, and caught a glimpse of the new launches at MAC and Mother’s Day gifting options at the Kama Ayurveda store. I even picked up a Signature Essentials Gift Box for Women from Kama.

Today however, I chose to spend at home and with family. Family time is something I totally cherish, and weekends tend to be a bit lazy for me after a long week. 😀 So for a change, I cooked up a lunch at home today. 🙂

So What’s Cooking?

Vegetable au gratin is something I have been wanting to try for a long time now. I recall tasting it at sumptuous buffet meals across renowned restaurants in the city. But never really thought of preparing it until today. As rich as it may look, vegetable au gratin is a relatively simple dish to cook. You only need a good amount of assorted seasonal veggies to start off with. I had carrots, frozen peas, beans and even potatoes and mushrooms in my au gratin today. 🙂 Read more

Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion

Sunday Diaries : Bahubali 2 & A Day At Quest Mall

Hey everyone! So it was an eventful Sunday with family. Finally caught up with Bahubali 2 : The Conclusion after waiting 2 longs days :P, hopped over to MAC and Kama Ayurveda, and had lunch with family. Now typing away at my desk as I’m so eager to share my day with you! I have a review for Baahubali 2 as well in the post, and it is more because I want to share with you the experience I had with Rajamouli’s brainchild, and less because you actually need it. 😀

My Experience of the Movie :

So finally I did manage to capture three top row seats and catch up with Bahubali 2: The Conclusion. After failed attempts to get tickets in nearby theaters, I eventually landed up in INOX at the Quest Mall. You know that famous question that has been tormenting us Indians for the last two years? Well we all know. And so many of us who made up our mind to watch The Conclusion right after watching the first part. More so because of the visual grandiose that the movie is. 🙂 Read more

The Power of Apology

Monday Moods : The Power Of Apology

Hi everyone! Hope you had a good start to the week. 🙂 I have been pondering for a while on the three magic words that school taught us back in childhood – Please, Thank you and Sorry. These were what we practiced all our childhood, or you can say, until we faced the real world. To me, this was more or less like a value-system imbibed deep in me. If we could delve deeper, we would realize these are not mere words. These are pretty powerful ways of communication – powerful not in a dominant way, but rather reflection of decency and politeness.

While it holds true that we seldom say a “Thank You” to the ones pretty close to our heart, an occasional expression of Gesture could always bring a smile on their face. Now isn’t that valuable enough? “Please“, on the other hand makes its way through to most of our daily bustle quite frequently. It is only apology, expressed universally in 5 syllables of “sorry”, that is shrouded by the veil of ego which rarely finds a place in our conversations. This is more common in our personal lives, because most of us are sensible enough to use it to our convenience in our professional lives.

What’s in a sorry after all?

We all are different, and none is like the other. It’s the difference that binds the world in a nutshell. I have often noticed that miscommunication paves the way for misunderstanding, leading to a disgruntled self and hoards of frustration. While some of us are extremely capable of deftly handling such situations, some can only barely manage it. To me, the best way out is to let go and forget. This is important for our own inner peace which is disturbed with ongoing internal conflicts among various emotions.
