Jab we met !!

fimequfbcoverpic

Our first meeting was so Bollywood style… my dad was on a bed with paralysis & my mom want me to get settled but I had some other plans “Not to get married ” Mayank’s aunt planned her summer vacation to our neighbors as they were relatives & saw me taking care of my dad.

She told my mom that she thinks that his nephew will be the perfect match for me and given the phone number of his parents. My mom spoke to them without my knowledge and suddenly when I returned back from my job she said “Apna biodata mail kar do” & gave me 2 mail ids with my pic to scan n send …after so much argument I said ok and went cyber cafe to mail on both id’s (one id was of Mayank & other was his sister) as my mom noted the wrong id of his sister…mail BOUNCED & my bio data along with pic only reached to Mayank!!

He says he was in love with my smile & called his parents n said yes you can go n meet her.

He added me on yahoo chat and we started chatting… very generally I told him about my plans that until papa is not well and stand up on his own I will not marry.. he said ok … n told me that he will make sure he will respect my decision but gradually we started chatting n after few weeks he called he… we started talking on phn too .. he told me that his parents are planning to visit my place to see me and told me how to dress so that his mom gets impressed & I did ..I, myself don’t know when I started liking him.. his parents visited n liked me and even fixed our engagement date also … I was happy and even he was sounding same but still, we have not met each other…. now as it termed officially all though we should meet & say yes as they all were unaware that we are talking each other from long.

I was about to visit my sister place in Hyderabad and as he was posted in Pune so decided that he will come down to Hyderabad and meet me, then we can tell d decision to our families.

Day arrived 19th August 2006 he entered my sister’s place with my high heartbeat and how he would look like? How he will react? How he will smile? Will he say yes? So many questions were just flashing!!!

He came and it was decided that we will go in a mall there we can talk and as we went there, all others left us alone and we both standing in front of some jewellery shop first sentence he said “Ruchi let’s go and buy a ring …for you” and I was like on cloud 9 …

We called our parents and told them that it’s yes from our side too!!! And in April 2007 we tied knot for many more lives it’s 10 years of togetherness but still my heart pumps like it’s just happened a few seconds back.. we got 2 faces of our love Ira and Viraj our kids and  he kept his promise “Ruchi these many years your papa treated you as princess now my turn to treat you as queen of my life..” and so I am …Queen of my king !!!

It was never so perfect life without you before 10 years. It’s amazing journey of 10 years and I feel blessed that you are my companion for life …
I still remember when we met first and you directly said …”Chalo let’s buy a ring for  you!!” my heart still beats fast when I think of those magical words… for me love, marriage was always like with someone who can understand me, who can understand my thoughts without speaking up and you still listens to me whenever and whatever I think without uttering a word. Today we have our 2 faces of love in face of Ira and Viraj. We have shared all good times together but I remember those tough times when I needed you most when dad left us and you stood next to me like a strong pillar and made me realize that my choice of getting married to you is my BEST decision. You said at that time “Papa took care of her princess for so long now it’s my turn to take care of his princess ” and you kept your words!!
Time tested us and our love many times , even when Viraj was born in 6th month as an extremely premature baby we was in tears as hopes were shattered but our love and our headstrong togetherness made our little wonder a champ and we got our second face of love with God’s own blessings as a Miracle boy!!
Thanks is a really small word to show my gratitude towards the life I am sharing with you !!
On this Valentines day, this is small poem I would love to dedicate to you

“Teri parchaiyian, teri muskurahat
mere jeene ki wajah hai
tere hone se mere dil mein
har din ek naya sawera hai
zindagi gujar rahi thi par
tere saath isko mili jeene ki wajah hai “

Luxury Stay !!

545989_436974779663070_805747525_n

In running life of today when my husband got job offer in another city to join, he joined Mumbai dream city and due to some reasons I had to stay back in Pune for little sometimes and as he was putting up in office guest house it was not feasible for me to come and join him any weekend and then there was Christmas round the corner so I decided to give him a surprise with a wonderful stay in The Taj Mahal Palace for 2 days so that we can enjoy our togetherness on this occasion.

I booked one TOWER SUPERIOR ROOM with the beautiful view from its balcony.

The full hotel was decorated beautifully and made me feel like it was only done for us to welcome.

Right from an entrance to our room, we felt like all is mine and now the time we spend without each other will get a new turn. Mayank (my husband) was quite surprised and happy to see me arranging all so well forimg_3369-jpg-transform-twocolumncomponentdesktop-image him.

TAJ SALON

As we loved enjoyed our luxury time together I can’t forget to mention Taj Salon where we felt like a royal with their Taj Salon Signature Treatments like  Gorgeous Gold, Dazzling Diamond facials, or Crystal Face Massage is given us ultimate experience indining_masalakraft4-16x7-jpg-transform-herohomedesktop-image luxury.

Dining 

Well, there are many options to dine in your own choice but our fav restaurant was MASALA KRAFT as they serve all dishes cooked in a traditional way with amazing authentic spices and well to tell you the secret readers being from Lucknow, I loved their best preparation of Lucknowi chicken biryani (must try). They are basically serving Contemporary Indian cuisine and an average cost for two people is 4000 rs/-.

Other than this Golden Dragon will also a next best option if you are looking for Chinese cuisine with average cost for two people is 5000 rs/- plus taxes

Yes, they provide morning yoga by the pool we missed that as we got to know it late but sure on our to-do list for next visit.

I was simply stunned by to architecture of the hotel.

View from every angle is beautiful and amazing staff which not only guided us as our first visit but also given us full royal treatment.

Why Parents are more tensed at exam time ?

shutterstock_195415799

“I don’t know what to do? last exams Isha’s friend scored more than her and Isha was little sad” Megha asked Raghav in tensed mood. 

“Why are you comparing your daughter capability ?” Raghav always hated comparison

“You will not understand…” She again went towards study room and started teaching Isha.  

This is common problem or common conversation during exam times.

Have you ever wondered why we as parents are more tensed and creates such situations?

WHY PARENTS ARE TENSED? 

  1. A comparison is the biggest mistake we do and lead to tensed.
  2. Social pressure, social updates 100/100 attendance or 100/100 marks.

The responsibility of Parents: 

  1. Remember every child is unique with his/her talent, academics are very important but don’t think that your child can be a jack of all traits, maybe your kid is gifted with some other talent than solving maths questions.
  2. Don’t pressurize your child to score more than what you want.
  3. Help them to study in the happiest environment.
  4.  Guide them to study and help them to solve their questions and doubts.
  5. Let them take a break and indulge themselves in their most loved activity may be music, dancing or playing outside which will work like a stress buster for them.
  6. Give them positive encouragement. Parents guidance and parents encouragement works as a medicine.

Give your child wings of your support, encouragements, and love rather putting him on your social pressure. Let your child be what he/she wants not what your facebook status needs.

Lesson Learnt


Indian Bloggers

I feel very lucky who got parents, who have given me values and motivation to keep going.  There were so many time and so many incidents happened in life where I felt dishearten but whenever I feel down and low one voice always comes from my heart and mind “DON’t GIVE UP” which my papa taught me. He made me a strong human being always ready to stood with head up with dignity and never giving up attitude.

The lesson I learned in my life and living on that given by my dad, he once said: “It’s up to you what you want either give up and lose your self-respect in your own eyes or don’t give up and lead an example and earn dignity and pride for yourself”.
