Meeting the truth !!

Well this is absolute true as we have lived that one truth of life once which we can’t forget in our entire life!!

2015 started with a happy note when everyone was extremely happy knowing that Ira (my daughter) is going to get her sibling to play daily but destiny holded something which is beyond our imagination.

Due date which doctors given was July 2015 and due to emergency I got in hospital on 1st April & after all check up and reports my doctor suggested us it’s really tough to save d baby as their is no water left for baby inside..

Life taught us that yes ” Truth is really stranger than fiction ” but this was not an end …. As God had some other plans stored for us…

In 25th week of my pregnancy on 9th April 15 I delivered a baby boy with weight of 800 grams at 4:00 am morning .. And doctors said no hopes as it’s really tough to save him. We all were in tears, he was breathing but doctors said no use to keep him on ventilator as it’s not going to work..he was kept in NICU & told us to sign up few formalities and wait for call from NICU as it is a matter of few hours only.

Flodded in tears we were just waiting for a call from NICU, & shift of doctors changed at 12:00 pm and beyond expectations my baby was still surviving without any life support system & that shift doctor called us immediately and said it’s a miracle as even 36th or 35th week babies do collapse but he is fighting his own let’s give a try , we got a ray of hope …with this doc  she said she will try her best & felt sorry for her colleague not putting him on life support….

We rushed and completed all formalities to admit & start his treatment… Doctor told us ” chances are still only 5% of survival as there would be many tests to be done for him as he is not only premature but extremely premature baby which has only 1% history of survival of such babies ” but for that 1% we wanted to give a try …and we have given that try.

My miracle & fighter boy started his fight for  life, for 21/2 months with tests , procedures & what not. Daily used to be a challenge for us to see new test results sometimes up sometimes down ….sometimes without oxygen pipe he survives sometimes on ventilator… Days were passing everyday just with a hope to hold him get him home someday healthy to complete my family.

With prayers, good wishes of friends & family & constant support of doctors & sisters of hospital he survived & we welcomed him home with full grand welcome & happiness.

This is one of the rare case of this hospital where 25th week baby survived & discharged in thermacoal box & kept him in that box for next 2 months.

Till now I have heard about strange stories & miracles but my MIRACLE BOY proved that no one can decide death & life only God can!!!

My Superhero My dad


Well it’s absolutely true my dad my hero !!!

I want to tribute my this write up for my superhero my dad!!!


Umesh Chandra Srivastava may b just a name or some relation for others who knew him as son, brother, chacha, mama, mausa, jijaji or a friend but for us he is still our lifeline to survive every day with his teaching!!

He was always a good son , husband, brother ,friend but he was a greatest dad. He has given us best upbringing…

He got 4 daughters and never regret for that … I still remember when some relative came and said “Beti ho par Beta ban kar khayal rakhna ” papa you was there to correct him and said ” yeh beta nahi meri Beti hai aur Mujhe garv hai ki meri Beti hai … Yeh 1 Beti meri 10 Beto se lakh guna behtar hai … You said “Ruchi I am proud that you are my daughter n you proud yourself being a girl ” thanks papa for never making us realize that we don’t have any identity. Thanks and sorry words are beyond what we feel it’s much more than that .. ❤️ you made me to feel proud of being a daughter n a girl child.


Only daughters and giving everyone best education and never regretted that he got daughters!!


He invested his all hard earnings in our education and believed in us …

He was a mentor , he was one guiding source for me he was solution for every problem!! image

But God decided something else for us and in 2004 he got brain hamrage and paralysis attack and for 7 long years went on bed .., but he never left us alone in any situation even in bad n tough times when sometimes relatives and all left us alone he stood like big pillar of strength and made us believe that nothing is going to be wrong as long as we are correct…he was strongest person who survived on first attack for 12 hours without proper medical treatment with his will power.


He always said ” If you believe you can .. Only then you can ”

From emotionally, mentally, financially he never left us alone …he was always there standing right with us.

But as says “अच्छाई की ज़रूरत सब को होती है ”  and may be God too need and must be he needed more so in 2010 he called him and made him a star to shine up there and give us endless light


Papa we love u, Papa we miss u,

You must be listening to us,

and we promise…

we will follow & carry your dreams, your teaching & your values

Papa but still I need you today, tomorrow everyday!!

Guide to Have Your Kids Clean up Their Mess at Home

One of the most important things parents should do it teach their children how to take care of themselves. This task sometimes turns out to be too hard for most parents because in most cases it is too hard for them to succeed in making their kids put their clothes and socks away.

However, if you succeed in teaching your children how to clean up their mess at home, it will be easier for you to make them create some useful habits and be responsible to themselves and their lives. The “Go and clean up your room” request usually gets a response of slamming doors and even hurt feelings. So, parents should remember that children normally learn best when they are offered positive role models and encouragement. Do not push them too hard or offend them in any way.

  • Make a request, not a command

The truth is that children usually give up easily when it comes to cleaning the big mess they have left earlier. Still, they should be taught to be persistent and carefully deal with all the tasks they have by dividing them in several parts that are easier to manage.

In addition, children reach more sympathetic to their parents’ requests to help them with the cleaning process if a specific task is given to them. A great approach is to also help them over the process and show them you care for them.

  • Give them a choice

When your children get bigger, you can also offer them a choice of a few thing that should be done. It is important not to use the domestic cleaning chores as a punishment, because this is how you will make it even more unpleasant for them to do.

  • Make a cleaning schedule

A good approach is to make a list or a schedule with all the cleaning chores for the week and give a specific task for every member of your family. This will definitely boost the sense of responsibility in your children, not to mention the fact that it will make them more empathetic to your family activities.

  • Ask your children join in

All children are curious. So, make them part of your weekly cleaning routine. A good idea is to also ask them about their opinion or ask for an advice how things could be made easier and quicker. By doing this, you will show your children that you care for their opinion, not to mention the fact that they will really feel like part of the family, and this is to help them create useful habits and an ability to work in a team. It will also bring them sense of responsibility and leadership.

  • Be fair when separating the tasks

Remember that all cleaning tasks should be given in correspondence to the child’s age and skills. DomesticCleanLondon Wimbledon advises you to give the easiest tasks to the youngest ones and the hardest ones to the big children. Also, do not forget to talk to them. You should explain why is keeping your home clean and well-organised is so important and always show them how to do the domestic cleaning chores properly.

  • Make cleaning a lot of fun

You should teach your children to be careful and attentive when doing the home cleaning tasks. But you should still remember that they are only children and such tasks usually get them bored easily. So, try to make some fun out of the domestic cleaning. Make a small competition with prizes or play a game. Be creative. Children love competitions and games, so this would be a great way to make them clean the mess quicker.
