About Me

 An educationist by profession, a hands-on mother by choice and a writer, from always. 

One question that everyone loves to ask the budding children, is - Beta badey ho kar kya banoge? (What you want to become when you grow up?) This question is answered by kids with huge sincerity and the answers are as varied as -" I want to be a giraffe!" to "I want to be a papa!" to "I want to be a doctor!" 😀Likewise, I have also popped this question to my children, number of times, but one response, by my 6-year old, was most amusing to me. She wanted to be a baker in the morning, an astronaut in the afternoon hours and she felt, she would still have some hours left, so she wanted to fly a plane (certainly, to be a pilot) before its time to sleep. We both had a hearty laugh at it. Of course, this is impossible in real-time but, I, surely , knew of a person who has the capability of accomplishing various roles every single day, throughout the lifetime😊. And, by now, you all must have also guessed it absolutely right.

Her answer was the seed to my first blog "Day Night Tinkering Mom". A mother, certainly, is a day-night thinking-working entity, the wearer of multiple hats. She is a creator when she bears a child, she is the first teacher when she teaches the language, she is a chef when she cooks variety of meals, she is an author when she creates first stories for her children and she is an artist when she gets artsy-craftsy with home-works. And, this blog, will be sharing those simple learnings, candid creations and honest expressions, by a mother, which she encountered, created and experienced while raising her children. 

I dedicate this blog to all the women, who are mothers. Irrespective of whether you are a working mom or a stay-at-home mom, being a mommy is a 24*7*365 job (*366, in a leap year). So, be proud of yourself, for, after God, You are 'The Haven'.

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

Plants🌱🍀🍃: 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
