Evening’s delight! #AtoZChallenge

Last chapter

sunset14 February, 6:30 P.M.

The sea waves crashing against the rocks at Marine Drive & the shadow of  the setting sun on the water is a sight to behold. Ananth & Natasha had always loved watching the sunset together. It was one such evening when Ananth had proposed Natasha with the onlookers looking at them suspiciously.

Marine drive had been a witness to their proclamation of love. It was here they had first hugged each other & shared their first stolen kiss. Many evenings were spent walking hand in hand along the Queen’s Necklace. Today also they were back to where their love began.

‘Chana jor garam’ & ‘ek cutting chai’ were the favorite pre-meal snack they both savored. They sat on the bench watching the fishermen return with the day’s catch. Very few words were shared, as their eyes did all the talking. For a stranger, they would look like new lovers – shy & dreamy. Both of them were content with each other’s company.

After what seemed like ages they moved towards Girgaon Chowpatty to relish the famous Pav-bhaji and Biryani. The high-end restaurants could not beat the charm of Mumbai’s street food.  The last treat for the day was Mango ice-cream at the Natural’s Ice cream parlor. What more can they ask for their evening’s delight?

5 things you should never tell a new mom! #Superbloggerchallenge2018

Motherhood is a nerve-racking experience where your hormones play havoc & to top that there are people giving unsolicited advice. You might have thought after pregnancy you will not be dealing with the nosy aunties & uncles. Bet you were wrong! If you are visiting a new mom then remember these five things you should never say to them.

  1. Watch your weight – She does not need to know how soon you had lost your baby weight. She is an individual & everybody has a unique body type. You do not need to brag about it. Let her be herself!
  2. Breastfeeding or formula – What a mother decides for her child is a private affair. You are not welcome to comment on it. This is not a general discussion topic. Though breastfeeding is mandatory for first six months, there can be rare circumstances which need an alternative.
  3. Her baby cries too much – A baby has needs which a mother knows best. She understands her child’s cry and expressions. Do not always tell her that the baby is fussy so it needs to fed. Baby might need a diaper change or could be sleepy or be tired. Do not interfere too much with how a mother handles her child.
  4. Catch your sleep when baby sleeps – This is practically the most absurd suggestion I have heard. A new-born cries-feeds-burps-vomits-poops-sleeps, this is a vicious cycle. By the time mother can sit the child is up again. And there are a gazillion things to do when a baby sleeps. Instead of commenting, help her out by taking up household tasks.
  5. Discuss her future plans – A mother may decide to stay at home for her kids or join her job back. It’s her decision & she will weigh out all her options. Do not make her feel guilty if she joins office & do not make her feel insignificant if she chooses to stay at home.

I am sure you can relate to few of these pointers. Do share what was the most annoying suggestion you ever got?
