Caught Red-handed

They planned it tonight,

Reached home much earlier than regular,

Ensuring no one noticed, he switched off the lights…

He came closer and admired her beauty

He wanted to grab her right immediately

When mommy opened the door and caught him red-handed

Stealing her chocolate!!!

I am participating in Barathon Challenge. Today is Day 4

Today’s prompt: Caught red-handed



I love you when…

I love you when                                                                                                                                                                                you gently caress my fore head
touch my cheeks and                                                                                                                                                             finally land on my lips 

I love you when                                                                                                                                                                                you are the first thing in the morning
and the last feeling in the night and                                                                                                                                      you glimpse all through the day

I love you when                                                                                                                                                                                you tease me with hide and seek
you delay me to my work and                                                                                                                                                 call me home early

I love you when                                                                                                                                                                                     I dress up specially for you
I make hot dinners because of you and                                                                                                                          the day ends quick and night starts fast

Oh my dear rain!!                                                                                                                                                                                I Love You
You are a real source of joy                                                                                                                                                      but not always coy!!

Yesterday, there were the first showers of this year’s monsoon and I loved getting drenched.

I love the rains!! Do you?

My Gratitude List

Certain days are not truly ours. I get up with a severe migraine only to know that my maid who helps me with the daily chores has decided to take her day off. Migraines and maids are an integral part of my life now!!  As I get into the kitchen and look out to start my day, I find that I am totally out of stock for the veggies. I lost the total control of the day and was completely down for a moment.

After calming myself with a hot cup of tea, I understood that only way to get out of the mess was to relax,  and count my blessings. That is a usual practice I follow which makes me instantly feel much better. I think of the people who are lesser privileged than me and feel grateful for the blessings I have in this life.

Since, it is the time of the month to join the “Gratitude Circle”, I have jotted down a partial list of things I am grateful for in no particular order.

My MIL: I am very proud to say that I have a one-in-a-zillion Mother-in-law who understands me completely and supports me at all levels. I have fallen in love with her attitude ever since I got married and feel really grateful for having got a chance to live with a super human like her.

My Maid: Thanks to my maid, without whom it would have been impossible for me to be balancing in between my work and family.

Mangoes: Mangoes are just incredible. Thanks to an Organic store near to my house, this year I had the real taste of mangoes. Yummy!! Yummy!! Yummy. If ever, this fruit was available all throughout the year, I would reserve one point for this fruit in every post of mine :p

Magicpot magazine: This is a kid’s magazine I subscribed for Dheer and he thoroughly enjoys reading Lutapi and Mayavi stories, coloring the pictures and loves to see through the book though he cannot read much. This has become our bed-time ritual to read, re-read, re-re-read the same story again and again.

And the list goes on… Let me collate it and come back to you next month!!

Hey, did you notice, that all the points started with the letter “M”, it was something inadvertent and I noticed it only when I finish this post.

She waits…

She stays in hope, dreams to cope
Like a dove, she waits for love

Tight her eyes, wipes her tears
She longs for warmth, patience put forth

Waits for years, to kiss away the hours
She wishes to be loved, dreamt to be his beloved

Every day, Every night, every moment
In pain, she prays for the Lord’s attainment

I learnt too!!

Learning is an understatement when it comes to motherhood. Every moment is an experience in itself. Though earlier I have written what I learnt from my little son, I still love to add-on to it with this post.

Last week, we mommies from Dheer’s school planned for a half-day outing to the children’s park. Yes, you read it right, we could not dare to think beyond half a day with all these highly energetic chipmunks.

I tried to capture some innocent expressions and the learnings behind:

We fight, We play.
We don’t have egos, We are not jealous
We are just happy!!

Recently Updated

I can do it myself
One who tries, always succeeds


I am upset,I can still be happy!!
With my juice though!!


Happiness is what I know!!
Rest of the emotions, I don’t need to know


We learn from little things!!
Every small detail excites us!!!


As these kids had a gala time, seeing the animals, birds, playing in the sand, we mommies also had fun time with some nice snacks and I learnt too!!!

Dares to depart

He was in his teens, life rosy by all means

“Go” says the heart, “No” conflicts the mind

Trailing his heart, he dares to depart

As his family await…..

He leaves to serve his country the great



P.S: Kudos to all soldiers who sacrifice their youth and selflessly serve the country.

This post is a part of Five Sentence Fiction for prompt – Conflict

What we have is not for many!!!

They embraced, they spoke….

She swayed her hands, he nodded…

She expressed, he deciphered…

They spoke in Silence…

They are intensely paired though nature made them speech-impaired


P.S : This post is inspired after I saw a speech -impaired couple last evening, who could not talk to each other but communicated blissfully with sign language. I was taken aback and I realized how lucky we are. We have been blessed with the gift of speech by this nature and most of the times we are too engrossed in our arguments that we make it louder for the mere pleasure of winning it.

Don’t you agree there are better ways of benefiting with this gift of nature?
