#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.

Tell me “What do you think of Tata Motors association with Lionel Messi?” The best comment will get a chance to win Amazon Voucher worth Rs. 750.

Yours truly, Author

Dear Blog,
This is the first time I’m writing a letter to you. Hope you receive it in time. It’s been a while since I thought of writing a letter to you, to tell you how important you are to me. We have been together since few years now but there was hardly a time we spoke to each other. I believe there’s no better way than a snail mail to fill up this gap. Frankly speaking I can’t recollect what motivated me to start a blog but I do remember how the enthusiasm kicked in and we started writing our own history together. We started the journey with youthful rhymes. Yeah! I remember why we decided it to be named as “rhymes” & not poems. It was because we didn’t consider ourselves to match the level of those celebrated poets. We considered ourselves rookie in this field but I must say I enjoyed and still do the way we wrote rhymes & were eager to publish it to the world. We were like a drop in the sea but what encouraged us was that now we are the part of the sea! Year passed and we…

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!

Walk a mile in my shoes

I missed your first talk. I left for office when you first walk.
I couldn’t be with you, first day at school. I know your dad isn’t that cool.
I was on the way home, when you got injured. I was really scared when I heard.
I cancelled our plan for the sunset. I know I owe you my time as a debt.
I wish for a life to live those lost moments. More than you, I regret my absence.
I was out there to make your future bright. I want your days ahead to be filled with light.
Coz I’ve been in the darkness and blues. I'd never want you to walk a mile in my shoes. This post is a part of Write Overthe Weekend, an initiative for IndianBloggers by BlogAdda.
