Housewife

The title comprises of two simple words. Both of which are dear to everyone. But when these two words are used as one, more often than not we tend to undermine its significance. 


And it's not anyone's fault for doing so. After all how many of us actually value their breathing, the heart which pumps blood in our body or the fitness of our very own body until we are suffocating, have increased level of cholesterol or when we fall sick. 


My point here is housewives have become such an integral part of our lives that we've forgotten to respond to them even in the simplest of gesture such as a smile of appreciation.

Housewives are the base of our house, pillars of our daily life. Starting with the alarm clock in the morning her day goes by various tasks one after another (all done alone without any supervision) till washing dinner utensils in the night. 


Now if you say what's such a big deal in that? Let me elaborate it.


Food:
We actually have our very own chef at home. On weekdays we get everything on time, don't we? Tea, breakfast, lunchbox and dinner. Over the weekends our chef fulfils our taste buds. From Chicken to Chat, Chinese to Continental, Indian to Italian. We ask for it, we get it. To be frank unlimited!! Not to mention the food is prepared keeping in mind your health needs/diet/allergies.




Clothes:
Washing, drying, ironing and arranging them back in cupboards these are not just the things which she does. But she also goes shopping with you. Doesn't she? If these tasks looks simple let's try these on some Sunday in order to check in how much time and energy it utilizes.




Money:
She is the best saving account with no minimum deposit. Yeah of course she spends more at times but then she spends not just on her but on us as well. Remember the birthday presents, the extra gold jewellery she purchased from her savings ;)



Kids:
She is first teacher of your children. Right from the birth she inculcates good manners, becomes a friend/adviser in the UPS and DOWNS of their life. She is the one who loves/cares the kids 9 months more than you do ;)




Sacrifice:
Everyone does sacrifice being in a family then what's so special about her sacrifice. Well I feel she has sacrificed her ego for the sake of loving you. That I believe very few can do and live with it. 



The work of a housewife is same as any other work in the world. Utilising the same amount of time and energy if not more.


You might be wondering being a man how could I know so much about a housewife. Well I'm son of a housewife and proud of her. And more than that I value her work and the time she has invested in me to make me what I'm today. 

 Happy Women's Day Mom :)

  1. May be that's why we call them homemaker now. No gender bais and no more looking down upon then. True! Women are such a blessing.

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.
