Digital Mamma

In last two years, online schooling transformed the entire education system, courtesy Mr. Coronavirus,  and the mothers we see today are "Digital Mammas"๐Ÿ˜€.

The digital wave didn't restrict itself only to online classes. It has now touched every single domain in our lives. Google Pay, Paytm, Phonepe, UPI, QR codes- all these are indispensable part of us now. 

Many people, especially women, were and are fond of keeping a cash amount with them. Not only saving and having it, we, women love to spend it too. But in previous year, I felt, the cash was not outgoing. Reason: Subzi wali wants G pay, Grocery wala wants Paytm, even golgappe wala bhaiya says "Madam Paytm hi krdo". Restaurants, online shopping, home deliveries, malls, schools, and maids- all prefer online payments. This digital money transfer is good and easy but I, sometimes, miss that physical money spending๐Ÿ˜‰. One thing, for sure, I would want to have as physical money- Ladies Kitty amount. I just hope it doesn't go online. Wo maza nahi aayega I guess๐Ÿ˜‰.

I know, nobody denies physical money, but going forward, I feel, that day is not too far. Even wedding invitation cards have QR codes for "more information" and "shaadi ka shagun."

We all are being swept in this digital wave, so, we must go with the flow.

Let's learn few things, from basics, which are required to become an all-rounder "Digital Mamma"๐Ÿ˜Ž. 

1. A google account-

You may choose to have your email id on any of the service provider but best is Gmail. This is interchangeably called as a Gmail account or a Google account. Having a basic email address is required for every digital application. Your email address is like- ***********

Link and verify your phone number with your google account. And now you are good to go. You can now download any application and press "Continue with Google."

2. A bank account- 

A bank account in any bank (obviously with a reasonable balance amount ๐Ÿ˜€) is required to link it with digital money transfer apps. 

3. Paytm or Google Pay account 

Though there are many other online money transfer apps, we will be focussing on Paytm and Google Pay.

Create a Paytm or Google Pay account. Whichever you wish to. You may have both the apps too.

4. UPI ID-

What is UPI?

UPI stands for Unified Payments Interface.

In simple words, UPI is a system for money transfers through various apps, without the need of an account number or IFSC code.

All you need is to have a UPI ID. This is like your unique identification. Each bank account has a different UPI ID. 

- How to create a UPI ID on Paytm?

- How to create a UPI ID on Google Pay?

Have a unique UPI PIN and do not share this PIN with anyone. Your UPI ID and UPI PIN are your own personal identification.

5. QR code? 

QR code means Quick Response Code.

Now, you all mammas know its full form. 
Ask everyone around you. See how many of them know it?

As is clear from the name, it is quick and fast.

How to do payments through QR code? 

Go to your paytm Or google pay app. 

Select "Scan & Pay" or ''Scan Any QR'' in paytm. 

Select ''Scan any QR code'' option in google pay. Enter the amount and payment is done. 

How to scan QR code with mobile cameras?

To make your mobile camera a QR reader, just do the simple settings on your phone

Go to Settings> Apps> System Apps Settings> Camera> Select Scan QR codes.
Now place your Camera in front of a QR code, covering all the 4 corners of the code. 

You are ready now- to see the hotel menu, to know an information or to participate in an event. 

So, go ahead mommies. Those who are already well versed with them, great, and those who are still just thinking, learn and download them soon. This digital wave is superfast. Get going with it. 

I have just shared the basics. Download them and you will find multiple options inside these apps, to make your life easy and convenient.

Poem: A Mother's First Day @ School

From tummies to laps, from crawls to jumping jacks...Time just flies with little ones. Then comes the day, when these naughty champs have to begin their journey called life. First step: The 'Preschool', after which they won't be wholly ours. Beginning of school years brings a huge relief to mum's life but the first day of separation @ school is the heaviest for mom and child both. Here, I have tried to pen a poem which explains the emotions of a mother on the very first day of preschool. A Mother's First Day @ School In new uniform Let me behold this sight. My little one Is grown up now Then why is this fright? Big school, Big classrooms, Much bigger than her height. Am I ready? Is she ready? For life's new flight. Racing heart, Welled up eyes, That tiny wrist held tight. Pecked, Hugged, " I will be outside " Oops! I just lied. Quiet home, Hushed toys, And so is my appetite. Fidgety, Jittery Couple of hours, Hope all is alright. Tick-tock, tick-tock L

The Lost Letter

Date: 18.05.23 From: Mumbai  To: Delhi  Sent by: an 8 year old To: a 6 year old sister Even after 21 days, the letter has not reached. Is it lost???? Will it reach its destination???? But when???? Summer Holidays After finishing multiplication and division sums one morning, I told my 8 year old to bring her English Workbook to revise 'Writing a Friendly Letter' or what is also called an informal letter. I gave her the  topic- "Write a friendly letter and invite your friend to come and spend her summer vacations with you."  She wrote the letter in her rough notebook. I corrected a few grammatical errors, spellings and punctuation marks and told her to revise the same. Then I went to the kitchen to prepare lunch. After half an hour or so, she came to me with a colourful letter written to her sister (masi's daughter- 6 yrs old) and inviting her to spend summer vacations with her. She said, "Mamma, I would give this letter to her when she comes here. I am keeping

Plants๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿƒ: The symbol of hope, love and care

 Loving the plants and being a Theist comes naturally to anyone. You can't force anyone to love plants or believe in God. But I feel, both plants and God are not at all bothered by one's disbeliefs. They continue to spread their love and care, even if not asked for. On my birthday, two years back, I decided to add greens to my new home. Trip to the nursery nearby, and came home some beautiful Areca palms, Bamboo palms, Crotons, Raphis palm, Dracaenas, Spider plants and lots of colourful seasonal flowers.  A month later, we decided to visit our parents, in another city, for about a week. The only thing bothered me was the upkeep of my lovely plants, but I knew all the species I have will certainly give me a green welcome when I will be  back. (watering the plants when on the go) The destiny had other plans and I contracted Covid there, just 2 days before we had to leave for home. A week-long trip extended to 25 odd days. I had arranged for a water system for my flowering plants
