The Dream!

It was 8.45 am. Sanjana got down from the cab and entered the office.
"Good Morning Sanju" . Sanjana turned back hearing the voice. It was Neha.
" I read your blog post yesterday." Neha continued." Rohit had shared in Facebook. It was so nice . All the very best dear. It wouldn't be a surprise to see you as a famous blogger very soon" 
"Thank you very much Neha" replied Sanju humbly with a warm smile.
Sanjana waved bye to Neha and walked to her cubicle. All her team mates rushed to her seat seeing her. " Hey Sanju, yesterday we all read your blogpost. It was really good" said one. 
" we never knew you write so well. This is a very good start" said the other. 
"Keep writing Sanjana . Don't ever stop it!" Said the third. 
She was really happy. She thanked everyone. "They all made my day" thought Sanjana. 
Happily she walked to the pantry to grab a cup of coffee. There she met all her friends from the other project. " Hey the famous blogger has come!  Good morning madam" teased one of friends from the gang. Everyone there appreciated her recent blog work. 
She was much elated . 
Sanjana was working for an IT firm. But Writing has always been her passion. Becoming a famous blogger was her dream and desire ! 
She couldn't believe that so many people read her post and even appreciated her for it. She opened her blog after a while to see almost 50 likes and 5 shares overnight ! " It's only 2nd blog post and this is an incredible response " exclaimed Sanju to herself ! 
Suddenly there was a loud noise "tringggggggggg..."
 Sanju bounced and opened her eyes. She realised it was her mobile 's alarm ringing. Time was 5.30am in the morning." Oh my god! All these were in my dream? ". She was in utmost disappointment. " But Sanju this is too much to expect with a blog of only 2 post" she cursed herself.
Unable to get back to sleep  she rose up lazily. Refreshing ,she sat on the couch with a cup of coffee. She was still unable to believe that was only a dream . She felt it to be so real. Without knowing what to do, Sanjana took her mobile to check for new mails.
She had received two new emails.
She opened the first one. It was from "".
" Dear Sanjana,
              We are happy to announce that your blogpost entry on the topic "Love and Life" is chosen as the best post of the week. Congratulations on behalf of our team.......

She couldn't read further. She read the same lines once twice and thrice." Yes this isn't a dream" she confirmed. She was so excited and happy! She quickly opened the other  email. It was from some unknown email address!
" Dear Sanjana,
                  I am Rita, author of the blog "". I am a freelance writer and I write for ''. I read your recent article that was chosen as the best blogpost of the week at ''. I am impressed with your writing and would like to invite you to submit an article for an upcoming event at , under the section "WelcomeGuests" where guest posts are being published. If u are interested please contact me. For further details you can also visit the website.

Sanjana was flying! Her joy knew no bounds! 
She knew this was indeed the Writer Sanjana's dream come true day! "Thank you God!" Said Sanju  .

With you my eyes look bright,
With you my skin becomes tight!
With you I can make my hair curly,
And definitely look more girly!
Wherever I go I keep you handy,
Because you make me trendy!
You are here when I'm messy,
 With you I become classy!
You are in every woman's possession.
Sometimes you even become her obsession.
But certainly you drive out her depression,
Boosting her confidence!
 I don't exist without you
O! My Vanity Bag
I dare not to share, 
For you are to be 
 Handled with care!

This post is written for the title " Handle with Care" on my vanity bag.
For any woman, her vanity bag is the first closest thing of all that she holds. She would never step out without her vanity bag. So as the case with me!  My vanity bag is one the most important things that I own, that I really handle with care!!

Papa.... I Love You!!!!

June 21st, 2015. 
What's so special about this day? Many of us especially in India may not be aware. Or even if we are aware (thanks to the social media and the online retailers!!) we really don't bother much! It's the Father's Day !  It is celebrated on the third Sunday of June every year!

Ok , now why Father's Day ? Every day he is a father to his children, do we really need a day exclusively to celebrate it ? This question might pop up many minds.

Celebrating Father's Day is of course necessary! Certainly its a special day. Do not see it as yet another day for the retailers to market their products. It is celebrated worldwide to honour the role of a father in parenting. His contribution to the family is indeed a thing to be recognised and celebrated. So why shouldn't we make him feel special on this day. We give so much importance to the Mother's Day . We tell mothers are so special, so great, so dedicated...!! But do we really recognise a father's commitment towards his family? Yes I am a mom too and I know mothers are great! But dads are no less great!

Gone are the days when a father used to be a dominating figure at home. Gone are the days when a father was strict, not helping his wife in the household chores and described himself as the member at home only for the financial support! Gone are the days when only a mother was regarded as the sole nurturer of a child.

The current generation dads are more than dads and the current scenario of the nuclear family set up demands a lot more from fathers, especially when many settle abroad. I know many women out there can really not deny point!

 Right from entering the labour ward they take part in every role of a mother and try to half their burden. There are so many videos seen online these days where husbands stay throughout the labour with their wives encourage them, cajole them for a normal delivery and make them feel cozy. While the wife undergoes immense physical pain the husband is experiencing unimaginable stress praying for the safe recovery of his wife and the safe arrival his baby! That's why every woman wants her husband to hold the baby first when he/she enters this world! And that's when a real father is born! As a result of this magic first touch, even the most inexpressive guy, irresponsible man will turn into the World's best father to his child.  From that instant he becomes a new person. His thoughts, emotions are fully baby centred, family oriented . He gives a helping hand to his better half.
Mommies can never find a better baby sitter than their husbands! Daddies all of a sudden become great singers to sing lullaby to put their baby to sleep. They feed the baby. They do not shy away from nappy changing task. They do everything they could really do!
The rough and tough cuddle from the father would be the most entertaining play a child would love to play. Well, mothers are the heroes of child rearing. But the significance of a father is more seen in the emotional development and well being of a child. No wonder it is said "The father is a daughter's first love and a son's first role model".

This is just a part of what fathers do and there are so many fathers around us who do a lot more.

If you are a child of one such great man then celebrate him, honour him, respect him and adore him. If you are a wife to one such selfless man love him for what he is!
   All mommies and children surprise him on this day to show him how much he means to you all. As this day gives all of us an opportunity to thank the father in our home for the all the unconditional love and support he provides to the family!

  Hug him and say papa, we love you! After all, at the end of the day this is what he expects from us!

If you are one among the men who still thinks parenting is beneath and beyond your dignity, hang on a sec.... Don't you think you have chosen to reject the most joyous duty of your life!

I dedicate this to my husband , who is a great father to my kid! I know who a mom is and how noble she is , for I lost my dad when I was 11, I was brought up by an Iron Lady. But it's him who showed me what's father's love! I see my father in him!
                       Respect to all great dads! Happy Father's Day !
