MOM and .....Aashna :) :)


It's been so long !!

But believe me - Delhi is a nothing but -TRAFFIC JAMS  - all around  - huh !!

I was talking to cousin of mine in the US and she told me US is all but traffic jams . Gosh !! Why can't it be the way in India !

She mentioned about a colleague of hers .

This female is Ramya . She's an engineer and a MBA .and yes - from the "II* , ones ] and a great professional.

But a slight twist.

She is no longer working . She handles her family.

Man !! I mean wow !!

But , its a long thing.

Readers ,this is something I wanted to share with you all.

Ramya had an excellent background . School , graduation , post graduation . A great company to work for. And , yes, a great designation.

Then what happened ? Why did she left ?

I love these things about Indians. They do everything passionately. And yes,the heart is involved.Always.

She left her job . For her family. For the cute little adorable - Aashna.

No.
Rajiv [ her husband ] never told her to do so. Neither her parents nor her in-laws.

She took an individual thoughtful decision . And she took it on her own.

And like always,she gave her 100% into this as well. Meet Aashna and you'll know why !

Moms world over do an amazing job.They are the best. Inequitable and unmatchable.
They work.The live.They earn.
They cry.They smile.They suffer.

All for YOU.For US.

Imagine a world without mom's. You can't.
Because rivers are not meant to be empty.

And mind you, I am not advocating the fact that females , working , should give a successful career to be full-time in the family.All I am saying is that they are free to do / choose whatever they think is right.When one gets married responsibilities increase so does the workload and pressure.It's a tough time these days and even tougher to survive and be successful.Both the partners should take an informed and a win-win decision.The child is important.In fact,precious.Don't get carried away with the fast moving life and the "charmed"designations we have.Be prepared to give up things and do "things" you never thought of.Be a helping hand and a support system to each other.

Life would be far better. And exciting.

PS - views are views. But life is tough . at times. very tough.

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be , in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .




Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on what is a life of an IPS .

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious . And not only me , couple of others as well . 

Today , rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR . As I up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks , we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer .

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal . While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned , unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations this place has made me fall in love all over again . My first thought on reaching here was , this can't be in India . This has to be a foreign location.   Pristine surrounding ,  lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
