Nutritious Mother's Day

Happy Mothers Day to all the caring, loving Mothers.

On this mother’s day, let’s us emphasis on the love the mother showers on her child in form of food she serves. A mother from day one of her motherhood takes an extra effort to ensure that her baby is receiving healthy food. And healthy food terminology changes with each mother as sometimes in utmost love mothers overlook the minute details of meal served. In India, mothers generally focus on the physical growth of a child and not the overall brain development and immunity levels. The diet normally followed in Indian households is rich in macronutrients like carbohydrates, fats and proteins, supporting only physical growth but lack in micro nutrients, which is necessary for overall mental and brain development.

Gaps in daily nutrition with nutritional quality lead to nutrient deficiencies to set in at an early age. Hence, you may not be aware of your child’s nutritional deficiency even if he/she looks physically fit. Micro nutrients like Iron, Calcium, Vitamins, and Minerals play an important role in building a baby's immunity against major infections. The consequences of micronutrient deficiency among infants are far reaching and include greater morbidity due to diarrheal and viral infections, measles, reduced vaccine responses, impaired growth, and development. Doctors in India say that there is a huge gap in the knowledge about the role of micronutrients in building immunity.

Reflections : #AtoZChallenge

The month that has maximum number of posts on our blog was April 2017, and reason is clear AtoZChallenge. Yes 26 posts in a month, what a taxing days. We decide to participate in this challenge in March but were quite confused with the theme. Only in march last week we came up with a theme ‘Relationship’ and then scheduled 3 posts, rest of the posts was spontaneous with the letters.

We didn’t stick to poetry, short stories or a post, as it would be more constraint to us. So wrote in every form to express various views on relationship theme. The post which was acknowledged by fellow bloggers is Quest for Connectivity and most viewed is Justifications.

It was crazy month which we loved to fullest as we connected with some excellent writers through this challenge. It’s always good to read others perspective on that particular letter.
One needs motivation for such challenge to be completed, and Blogchatter played a great role for us. Each day was supportive by them and to participate in the ebook carnival at the end hosted by them made us more consistent with our posts. Soon we are publishing are ebook named “Tangled Relationships yet Sweet", details shall be shared shortly.
We are so happy to flaunt our AtoZChallenge survivor badge. Read our all posts here

We earned it!

Now it’s time to share our learning’s from AtoZChallenge in reflections post
  • Schedule your posts for at least a week to get a breather in between.
  • Publish post early in a day and rest of the day can be used to commenting, promoting and connecting on social platforms
  • Stick to theme for better results or else you may end up writing on subjects which are not close to your heart.
  • Read random blogs and connect more rather than reading a single blog each day, though you can stick to your favorite reading list :)

ZEAL – Main Ingredient

Couldn't find a single minute piece
My puzzle lay incomplete to tease

Every order I try hard to frame
All my ideas however go in vain

A little puzzled I stood in a nook
Realized where that piece could hook

A piece of dream plus dash of passion     
Quickly made my problem shun

Jigsaw puzzle like life is only complete
With the zealous heart all set to compete
 

A piece is dependent on other parts
As we related to many in life's part

If all fit in right place at right time 
Handling relationship is like song with rhyme 

Zealous heart is life's main ingredient 
Keeps everyone binded while situations being variant

Try new dish centering Zeal

Surely you will have content meal.

YES I Do

Isn’t the title “Yes, I do” take you down the memory lane, when you had made promises to your loved ones.

YES to any promise comes with great responsibility, and enduring it is a major task too. When we make promise we are actually setting a goal for ourselves, which constantly remind us of our duties in that direction.

Promises to self or to others should be reasonably and practically possible or else you may find yourself in a big trouble. If you think some tasks are out of your reach then very politely say NO. As, every YES from you binds you for a long run challenge. This quote by Hannah Arendt rightly describes the situation “Promises are the uniquely human way of ordering the future, making it predictable and reliable to the extent that this is humanly possible.”

One thing that any person can have in abundance is Promise, irrespective of age, religion and richness, and Ovid says it aptly with this quote “Everyone's a millionaire where promises are concerned”.


However people should never underestimate the power of promise made, it can either make or break someone's heart. It doesn't matter to whom we make promise to but what matters the most is how we work to fulfill one. Lastly I would only say that "Make one to meetone".

Xerox Copy

Universal truth opposites attracts
But what is that eventually distracts

When two are sailing together in motion
Differences in thoughts leads to commotion

Your partner is a completely different person
You acknowledged it with love & compassion

Slowly dissimilar things were not merrier
You no longer enjoy distinctiveness in your carrier
Aura of thoughts - AtoZChallenge
Shedding dissimilarities is now unimaginable
You have chosen an individual with full potential 

Now you think making your clone was much easier
Than asking your partner to change with calmer

Don’t look for your Xerox copy forever
You have the original and best partner

Apprize the dissimilarity in between you two
Love and understanding only solutions to glue


This poem essays the need people feel to see the change in their partner as they wish, which is quite impossible. One should respect the individuality and love the person as he/she is like. I would say life would be great with dissimilarities and "If there is no contradictions, no thrill in life".
