“I cannot go to school today”
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
“I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.

My mouth is wet, my throat is dry.
I’m going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I’ve counted sixteen chicken pox.

And there’s one more – that’s seventeen,
And don’t you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue,
It might be the instamatic flu.

I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I’m sure that my left leg is broke.
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button’s caving in.

My back is wrenched, my ankle’s sprained,
My ‘pendix pains each time it rains.
My toes are cold, my toes are numb,

I have a sliver in my thumb.

My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,

I think my hair is falling out.

My elbow’s bent, my spine ain’t straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,

There’s a hole inside my ear.

I have a hangnail, and my heart is …
What? What’s that? What’s that you say?
You say today is ………….. Saturday?

G’bye, I’m going out to play!”
― Shel Silverstein


Dil to bacchha hai ji……….

Once upon a time I would start preparing for Diwali a month in advance. No, I’d not be helping my mother with the cleaning or discuss about gifts for our relatives.

Almost a month before Diwali, I’d plan my new dress for the day, figure out rangoli patterns for each day, pester my parents to take me shopping for lights and lanterns, buy heaps of crackers on the way home, insist on buying the most beautiful candles and do everything that was suppose to be done to make this festival what it’s meant to be – a festival of lights!

In fact, pre-Diwali was one of those rare occasions when my mother actually encouraged my hyper-active nature; because in my excitement I’d do half the work myself! I wouldn’t be half as enthusiastic to celebrate my birthday. After all, isn’t Diwali the festival that brings together friends and family?

we had this huge red tub, which would be brought out of the storeroom only during this festival. we’d store our crackers in it and protect it with life &always ensured that it was equally divided between all siblings n spend hours over it. My crackers were so precious to me during Diwali! I hated it when my old relatives would frown and say – ‘Don’t you see what a waste of money these are? You are practically burning money!’ Being as small as I was, I’d just scowl back and walk away!.when was the last time when we all gathered together for”lakshmi puja” &were more interested in crackers burning outside

However, something changed over the years. I failed to celebrate Diwali, in the manner that I always did, just before appearing for my tenth board exams. Because the main focus was on studies, I actually felt that this festival had taken a backseat in my life for the very first time. So after criticizing our government for the bad timing of exams, I decided that the coming years would be better!

Did it get any better? Well may be the year after was not so bad, but then came the HSC exams, and once again Diwali celebrations did not happen. There on, with every successive year I realised Diwali was never the same!

What changed? Had I grown up? But why had the world grown up along with me? Why was it that with every passing year, people did not bother to bring out their lights or family get-together became less important than business deals? Are we all running way too fast to enjoy the festive spirit of India?

When was the last time you bothered to wake up early and change the rangoli design? Or took the time to clear your wardrobe and offer your old clothes to the needy? Or like everyone else, did you decide to use this day as another ‘bank holiday,’ choosing to stay at home to relax after your hectic work schedule? It’s easy to see that this festival of lights grows dimmer each year!

It seems like Diwali is a festival only for kids. After all they’re the only ones spending hours with the fuljhadis, parachutes and other crackers. Who ever knew growing up would be so boring?

So this year, like before, I decided to become a kid again and spend hours decorating my home with lights and colours, to make a plan and step out of home to meet relatives and indulge in sweets and delicacies. ­­­After all it is worth becoming a child again to enjoy the festive spirit of Diwali!
Time never comes back,so go ahead enjoy every festival,every moment………that was my ghar waali diwali ,how about you? Do watch this video at https://www.gharwalidiwali.com/

My way on Highway with Garnier BB cream

This post takes me back to the time when I had just returned from Alwar ,rajasthan where I addressed a group of women from a cluster of villages on the menstrual hygiene and malnutrition. The same day I returned from the scorching heat of sands ,I left to Corbett national Park in Uttarakhand as a freelancer to cover up a documentary on Wild India where in the midst of forests sometimes we had to safari the whole night to catch a glimpse f the mighty tigers .Back from Corbett ,I was invited to a youth forum on CSR a high profile event attended by stalwarts of development sector at the Taj,New delhi. This is what my routine is ,its never routine .My normal work day is never so normal ,As a freelance writer and travel blogger sometimes i have to travel to the wildlife sanctuaries and national parks to write about it ,and some days the social worker in me treads through the dusty lanes of Rajasthan to spread awareness about female feticide .While I love my job ,I live a life that I always aspired ,the variability and the geographical diversity it takes me to sometimes shows up on my face . Yes I am nearing thirties and like every woman I hate to see that tired look on my face because the likes and “Wow ! Gorgeous” comments on the pictures I upload brings a smile on my face.
I meet people, I care the least about sun (I simply can’t) ,I sometimes reach my room so tired that its just a cold water wash for my face ,Spa and facials are a complete no no . I loved getting clicked and share those pics but the biggest problem is I can’t apply make up ,it just can’t stay on my face as I am mostly outdoors running from tip to toe .
My skin required a face cream that would take care of the sun rays that I am constantly exposd to, keeps it fresh all day long and looks just perfect for the pictures I pose . and the secret for that glowing skin goes to http://www.garnier.in/face-care/beauty/garnier/bb-cream/bb-cream yes Garnier BB cream ,its truly named so because it gives you a perfect look miraculously .
When used as a single coat moisturizer it evenly spreads on your skin giving a softness that of a child’s skin , with cherries that keeps you fresh all day long ,Ginger – a well known anti oxidant that regenerates skin cells and bilberry extract that keeps the skin tight and firm.
So girls of 21st century,the outgoing ones, the adventure freaks ,the solo travelers :Enjoy your not so routine life more than before with this skin perfector from Garnier.It perfectly suits me and so will be to you
