A walk into the beauty of nature

Long walks around the city, is something I love to do ,and its more beautiful when am accompanied my lil sweet heart.Even though when she comes along , it happens that , she keeps running and for me the whole world seems to be running ,so nothing can be observed.But its fun too , running behind her all the time and then getting tired . ūüôā

But when am alone , I observe what is¬†around me, the river, the sky , the vehicles and not to worry , on the road too , because I don’t want to fall. ūüôā I feel my lungs inflate with fresh air¬†

When you are on the riverside on a sunny day , its so crowded  with people coming for a sunbath and its totally empty , if ever its a cloudy day.During summer, people here engage in swimming , boating , playing games , its so full of life . The trees and the birds all around happily enjoying the warm weather , touched with the soft breeze from the river side too. 

Most of them bring food along with them , and enjoy their food along the river side , sometimes feeding the birds too.Its very nature friendly place. Many will be jogging along , some chitchatting , enjoying the sunset. Small gondolas carrying people from one end to the other end , looks so beautiful on the river.  

Older couples walking around hand in hand , romancing around.Its true that love has no ages.The sunsets very late during the summer , and everything will be bright around ten pm at night too , giving everyone to be out around for a longer time.

In Winter season , I generally don’t feel like to go out , still when it snows , like kids , i want to get out and play with my daughter.Winter walks around is good too, but too freezing. Trees around with no leaves standing still ,as if its frozen and waiting for the summer to arrive and¬†fill¬†their branches with green tender leaves .

Once while I was on the bridge , walking around wondering how these people are¬†swimming ¬†in this high current.I just got startled , when I saw someone jumping from the bridge side . For a moment I didn’t know what to do , I looked down to the river, there the person was swimming holding an orange bag filled with water. People are really crazy, being adventurous . ūüôā

Kids learn faster !!!

“Mama ,¬†Ola¬†” , ¬†I turned to her in astonishment . Yes ,¬†of course¬†that was a¬†Spanish¬†word she said.

There was no other guess , she learnt ¬†it from her favorite cartoon ‘Pocoyo’ . I do know that , because I have seen her watching¬†Spanish¬†episodes, sometimes French , or German nowadays even Chinese, but never expected her to learn it. It happens that whenever we are busy , we leave her to watch cartoon in the¬†iPad¬†and that led her to become quite a good expert on touchscreen.

She selects¬†you tube¬†on her own and selects her favorite cartoon to watch .As kids are not specific about language , they watch anything. ūüôā She showed me that language is never a barrier to learn or understand something.¬†

Kids are quite good at learning our fast growing technology and trends. They get to know many things , which we might not have seen or noticed. Once I noticed her do something on our mobile and something appeared on the screen, but after trying several times , we were not able to replay it. Then we had to observe what exactly she had done, only then we could do it.

Its funny , but that is the truth, kids are learning a lot and faster.They notice better than us and feel everything around them is important for them. They have the enthusiasm to learn which the older generation has lost.

I have heard the story of the mythological¬†character¬†Abhimanyu , son of Arjun and Subadra in Mahabharata , who learns to enter the Chakravuyh, while he was in his mother’s womb.As a mother, I have felt the movements my lil girl made when I used to talk to her whileshe was inside me.I wonder what knowledge must have been imparted to the infant inside the womb who just hear whats going around in the outside world.

The true way of learning is by imagination. In schools , kids learn pretend games and that help them to grow their  imagination a lot , beyond their boundaries.We should encourage them , so that ,their knowledge will become a source for them to the outer world. Let them get inspired by the nature, who is the true Teacher.

Appreciation !!!

appreciation1Whenever my daughter makes something new with her building blocks  she calls me up and shows me . When I tell her its beautiful , she jumps with joy and I always love to watch her being happy.

When am in kitchen preparing something , she too comes down there , playing ¬†in her mini kitchen and pretends to cook something. She then gives it to me and her dad to eat and as ¬†we say her “its yummy” , her sweet little face glows and shines like thousands lights were lit up.In this busy world all these small¬†happiness’ worth a lot. I always feel good when I see her happy , and I always make sure , I keep her happy.¬†

It’s all about spreading happiness and positive energy to others and¬†in turn you never lose anything.¬†Everything¬†from small to big matters. Valuing someones or somethings presence is very important. If we never had the facilities what we have today , our life will not smoother like this.But its true that , whatever we have , we are never satisfied too . ūüė¶

When someone helps us in anything , we just ignore what they have done for us and sometimes hurt them badly. What do we get from that , other than hatred. Some¬†doesn’t¬†need any worldly pleasures just a ‘smile’ and a happy face.¬†

Be thankful for the wonderful earth, sky , sun,moon and the stars and everything around us from living to nonliving. Be contended with what we are today because of yesterday and excited about what we might achieve tomorrow with hard work,patience,love and care.

Teach our kids to appreciate what they have and value it , it’s not about money because in this fast¬†running¬†world , we must have noticed that ,anything that costs around 100 bucks may cost either little bit more or less in coming months .¬†

Every day , every second is countable , make use of it and make our life rewarding .

‚ÄúAppreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.‚Ä̬†

Through my eyes

Eyes are such  wonderful cameras , captures beautiful pictures and saves it in our heart. 

While I was on the way to pick my daughter from her playschool, I was noticing the snow falling on the road, it was like a black sheet of paper is laid and someone from up there is throwing while spots on it, the drops were falling like they are in some random lines. 

The drops were seem to be in some race , falling down faster and trying to reach the ground and find a place before there fellow snowflake reaches . Like every single drops makes an ocean , the snow flakes were making a magnificent layer of snow , which looks like a white carpet laid on the road. 

The snow makes everything we see around as magical, as if we are in some wonderland, but with the freezing affect we realize that we are not in some other world . 

Its fun to watch kids play in snow, throwing snow balls at each other, just nothing else in mind other than their play. The wonderful stage of any ones life. Snow provoked my childhood memories  again .

The blue sky in the background makes it so beautiful .Can’t believe that this was place used for gladiatorial contests and ¬†public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classic Mythology.It is the iconic symbol of imperial Rome¬†.
