#madeofgreat

The first person who comes to my mind when I think of #madeofgreat is her, my source of inspiration, my loving grand-mother.

I call her aai (Marathi word for 'Mother') even though she is my grandma. And why shouldn't I!! Even before I took my first breath in this world she cared for me by nurturing my mother when I was in her womb. She is the one in whose hands I feel joyous. Holding her hand I walked in every garden in the vicinity. She truly did and still shows what 'Unconditional Love' is. I think that's what drives her and makes her who she is. A loving, caring person filled with life.


 

She is, no doubt THE BEST COOK in my life. I swear by my words that I eat ANYTHING she cooks even when I hate that vegetable (lady-finger to be precise). I love her cooking so much! Her new recipes that she tries even today are such a delight to me that I give her the credit to make me a foodie. She calls everyone on all festive occasion and serves them home-cooked food with love. Her dawat (feast) not only fills my tummy but gives energy to my soul. This fearless attitude of her trying new things even at the age of 76 has a great impact in my life which teaches me that; only when you try you’ll succeed.

 

Rhyme is the only way I think I could express myself and how she is my world to me.

I Never asked for anything still you gave me everything...

When you used to lift me in your arms...
It hid me away from all the harms...

When you used to sing Lullaby...
I used to fly-by stars & galaxy...

When you used to play with me...
I had enjoyed so freely... 

When you made food...
Its soooo Wonderfood...

Whenever I used to cry...
You were always there for me to make my pain die...

Your Care is so pure...
Your love has all the cure...

You are more than God to me...
Can never pay back what you have given me...

I can't ever describe what you have done for me...
Yet I know you will always stand by me...


I Never asked for anything still you gave me everything...


The way that stubborn little boy made Lionel Messi GREAT! In the same way my aai (grandma) is great by her unconditional love & young heart which never stops trying new things. Do visit http://madeofgreat.tatamotors.com/ for more greatness.

Life is a box of emptiness..

In valley of singing birds and a river, lived a brother and his sister in a wooden cabin. His name was Daniel and hers Shirley. Daniel used to earn bread by cutting timber and Shirley was in school. He was creative whereas she was curious!

Rajmachi

As monsoon approaches it kindles a sweet memory of a mesmerizing trek. A Fireflies special trek to Rajmachi with Backpack Holidays.

Rajmachi also known as Udhewadi is a base village for the two marvellous forts Shrivardhan and Manaranjan. They are situated in the mighty Sahyadri mountain range in Lonavala and Khandala, Maharashtra. Shrivardhan fort the taller of the two forts stands at an altitude of 3000 feet above sea level where as Manaranjan fort reaches at an altitude of 2700 feet above sea level. On the way to these summits there are more surprises than you can think of!


The journey began via Mumbai local train from the rendezvous point Dadar to Karjat which takes approx. 2 hrs. I utilized this stretch to get acquainted with fellow enthusiastic trekkers. It’s one of those times when you get to know the most genuine experiences of trekkers, get excited with their enthusiasm and look forward to explorer yet another uncharted territory.
Individuals boarded the train at Dadar but a gro…

You never know..

It was a gloomy night. He was walking on the footpath kicking stones cursing the day. It was a really exhaustive day for him.

Backstory

Shifting in the bed realising why the alarm hasn't gone off yet, he looked at the clock. The hands of the clock showed 1:25. He was closing eyes thinking he got up in the middle of night when suddenly his attention turned towards the vase at the back of the clock which was shimmering in golden light. Shocked, he turned behind to see the sun has risen already! He immediately checked his mobile for the exact time and popped out of his bed cursing the alarm clock.
