5 Movies To Watch This Father’s Day – Redefining Father’s Love

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Since childhood I have been a sucker for Bollywood movies. My exposure to Hollywood movies was very limited so to say. Why?  (Me whispers, “We were not allowed!”) But then somehow I never pined for them either. Yet when I came of age and was independent enough to take calls on what I could watch and what not, I chose to catch up on the good movies that must be watched. And along the journey, I came across some beautiful movies that have stuck with me and revisit them time and again just to feel the emotions all over again. (Well that’s the case with Bollywood movies too! Would you despise me if I told you that I have watched Anil Kapoor starrer “SAHEB’ atleast 20 times?) Now when I thought about writing a Father’s Day post, I squandered hours trying to decide what I can I right that will measure the true depths of a father’s love for his child/children.

My dear 25 year old younger self,

If I were to meet you today, you would actually laugh at me. Or even mock me for what I have turned into. But, you know what? I might mock back too. But then that’s obvious, isn’t it?

A Letter for My Latest Love of Life

posted by Anupriya February 6, 2018 7 Comments

I’m thrilled to be participating in a five day ‘LOL-a-thon organised by ‘The Momsteins’. Join us to read some wonderful letters written by 26 cool bloggers. Stay around to read some amazing letters coming up.
Today’s prompt is ‘Letter to an Inanimate Object’

Today’s prompt encouraged us to write a ‘letter of love’ to an inanimate object. As soon as I eyed the prompt, I knew instantly what object I wanted to profess my love to. Though on a second thought there emerged a couple of contenders namely, my laptop, my FM embedded speakers and my mobile phone. Yet my heart kept racing back to that one thing that makes all the above mentioned things take a back seat.

I would like to elaborate why?

There are times when I am engrossed with this love of my life, I forget that I have to work on content for my blog. Knowing that my laptop is pinning for me to open up its flaps and start typing fervently on it, I chose to ignore it till the time, work can no more be procrastinated. Continue Reading

Family, I owe you my existence – #LettersOfLove

posted by Anupriya February 5, 2018 21 Comments

I’m thrilled to be participating in a five day ‘LOL-a-thon organised by ‘The Momsteins’. Join us to read some wonderful letters written by 26 cool bloggers. Stay around to read some amazing letters coming up.
Today’s prompt is ‘Letter to Parents/Kids’

Where should I start, and where could I end? I am clueless on how could I ever thank my family to do justice to what they mean to me. I say family because among my parents, in-laws and kids I could not forget my sister. Thus I am going to approach my write-up with a holistic view with my family in mind.

And if I were to make it quick, I’d rather thank god, for blessing me with a family where I find absolute balance. How? Well let’s just put it that different members of my family inspire me to be more than I currently am –

My parents gave me an upbringing, that made me believe that I could be anything. Absolutely anything! They taught me to never be bound by any inhibitions and actual or perceived limitations. Even today when I do not stay with them, they are the constant reminders of my aspirations and ambitions in life. Whenever I am engulfed with self doubt they act as thought catalysts and encourage me to go and get it. Continue Reading

Health! I bow down to you

posted by Anupriya November 8, 2017 10 Comments

My father is a man of few words and a lot of action. His action includes an hour of yoga and exercise every morning before he leaves for work and almost 5 km of walking in the evening once he is back home. This has been his routine for last 10 years and any changes are a little tough on him, and yet he finds the motivation to put on his sneakers and go for a walk at any time of the day.

One day in a moment of light humor I asked Dad why he felt so compulsive to work out or walk. Continue Reading

How I Learned Value of Money

posted by Anupriya June 1, 2017 6 Comments

A couple of months back, I read in an interview by actor Akshay Kumar that he did not want his kids to inherit his wealth. HE WANTED THEM TO EARN IT.

“Whatever they get, they have to earn it. I want them to be responsible human beingd who are also full of gratitude for what they have. If they want luxuries in life they have to work hard for them” said Akshay Kumar.

This makes me ponder further as to how in our normal lives we can induce sensitivity towards money in our kids. Going down the memory lane, I remember various instances where my parents refused to give in to our (my sister and me) whims and fancies and often put their foot down on our demands. The result, they have two daughters who are financially independent with decent savings to fend for themselves even if they do not work for next couple of years. Here are snippets from my childhood to give you a peep into how my parents instilled value of money in our young minds- Continue Reading
