Winter season is already knocking the doors in many parts of the world, which brings lots of changes. Be it with food habits, skin, clothing, and of course a change in our routine too. We all like to stay warm and cozy in winters and have hot cup of soup or coffee and spend the days calmly.

Comfortable baby with right Baby products


Being cautious in every move you take becomes a general tendency of a mother in respect to their children. And yes mothers do take utmost care when it comes to health of a child. I feel a child is happy when he/ she is in most comfortable environment. Be it atmosphere of the house, the vibes, clothes kids wear and even the products applied to them.

Toddlers, who can hardly express themselves, have their cute expressions to convey their messages. Furthermore only can cry to display their discomfort and its parents whose deduction and analysis of situation then understand the actual problem and act to resolve it and make the child comfortable again.

Remembering GRANDPARENTS


“I am lucky I have all the four to adore, cuddle, teach, play, understand and support. I love them immensely and truly.”

You all might have already guessed for whom 4 I am referring to, for sure they are the grandparents. Their love and blessings showered on us makes us stronger.

But unfortunately I am not that lucky, I could not spend time with my grandfathers and always wondered how it would be to talk to and play with grandfathers. Though both maternal and paternal grandmother showered their love on us and we were their darling granddaughters somewhere in my heart there is a vacuum that miss my grandfathers affection.
 
According to Hindu rituals and customs 15 days of Pitr paksh, which are 15 days prior to Navratri marks the days as Shrad pooja. 'Shradh' is observed when we welcome our beloved ones who have left this world to bestow us with their sacred blessings.   

 
Though the destiny can’t be changed but still my heart wants a strange wish. I wish to God, just give me atleast one day to spend with my grandpa, just a few moments to relive, to listen, to learn, to express my heart out. This heart yearns to be blessed with this one moment.   


PoemOnGrandParents- Aura Of Thoughts


A heartfelt poem अनोखी चाह : Strange Wish  which I have penned down in remembrance of my grandfathers few months back on the blog would like to share with you all. This poem is in Hindi, I have also written a rough non-rhyming translation of it in English.



चाहा था आपके पास बैठूँ
कुछ कहुँ और कुछ आपसे सुनु ,
बैठूँ गोद में आपके हर बार
जब पडे माँ से मीठी मार
आपकी मुस्कान मुझे दिलासा देती,
फिर गलती दोहराने का एहसास दिलाती

A Simple Test to give your baby the best Wet wipes


Motherhood and care goes hand in hand. Don’t you all agree with this saying? I am sure most of you must be nodding head in complete agreement. A mother is always extra cautious for the child and so makes sure that everything is done in time and in particular manner. For that a mother keeps many things handy and one among them are wet wipes.

There are many brands, which have come up with baby care products, most of them boast of being chemical free. But from myriad options available in market one will surely get confused as to which product is the best. Baby’s skin is very delicate and sensitive to the slightest chemicals in the products that we use for them. So we should always try to pick the product, which is made of natural ingredients, as they are safe on babies skin. All criteria were fit in Mother Sparsh water based wipes, which are as good as cotton and water. The search is finally over with Mother Sparsh baby wipes.
