‘The Family Man’ on Amazon Prime has taken the country by a storm and you can see a lot of people discussing and reading the reviews about this Amazon Prime video web series. This blog post is not another review of ‘The Family Man’. I am not going to talk about the storyline or the characters, but going to concentrate on the parenting tips that ‘The Family Man’ brings to our attention.

Happiness is when Good News Comes in Doubles!!!

This weekend is one of the best weekends in the recent past in our family. Can you imagine the reason? My cousin in UK delivered twins and we were all excited with the arrival of the two tiny little people into our family. Though we couldn’t welcome them personally by being near to my cousin during the time of delivery, we all wanted to share our happiness with her on the arrival of the twins. It’s like Good News came in Doubles into my household. Even my grandparents were so excited and wanted to see their great grandchildren immediately. But […]

The Greatest ICC World Cup and its lessons

After the long 7 week schedule of 48 matches between the world’s best teams and the nail-biting, wonderful neck to neck final in Lords on last Sunday with super overs and super excitement, the cricket fever has gone down and cricket conversations have been replaced with other trending and burning topics. But that’s not the case in my house, as the cricket is still going on and all thanks to #Hotstar, the highlights and replays are still being played 24X7 in my house and my kid is still crying along with Virat and Kane. So thought of listing down the […]

My top 5 reasons to watch Jersey Movie with Kids

From the Man in the Woman to her!

Women’s day has come and gone already. So obviously, the Women’s day sales pitch is also decreasing, so as the number of the articles/wishes appearing on the Social Media. These days, the Women’s day celebrations have turned into more of the marketing gimmick rather than teaching and practising why this movement has started.   “A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.”    by Gloria Steinem Our Indian mythology has in fact stated this fact long time back itself, with the various forms of the gods. Ardhanariswara rupam is one such proof of […]

A Letter to my Son

Dear Son,   As you would be soon completing 6 years and turning 7, I wanted to write this letter to you, since you would be the next man in the house post your daddy.   Till date, you have both boys and girls as friends and you kids luckily didn’t shun away playing with each other. You and your friends liked playing with the kitchen set along with football. Being together was what you all wanted and the games didn’t matter for you.   But in the coming years, there would be few changes as some girls prefer sitting […]

Today’s Media

While rearranging my library in the morning, my eyes fell upon a book, which was covered with a two-year-old newspaper.  The heading of that article reminded me of the famous quote “One reason why cats are happier than people is that they have no newspapers” by Gwendolyn Brooks The story in the newspaper goes like this – There is this software professional, who is very much disappointed in his height.  At that time, he saw a few advertisements all over the place about a doctor who can perform height increasing operation. Without, even verifying the authenticity of those ads or […]

Healthy Beginings – Makes one Healthy and Wealthy

#BlogChatter has started with a new campaign called #HealthWatch as we all know how good procrastinators we are. I guess even they know about us more than us.
