A child in my mind

I still remember all the scoldings and screams I used to get from my mother when I used to do any faults. I used to hate her reactions for my faults so most of the time I used to hide it. And whenever I was caught her anger used to get double.

Today I am 35 years old and unfortunately my mother is not with me. She departed many years ago and I it was the biggest lost for me. Today I am mother of three kids and I scream them too but whenever I revisit my childhood that child in my mind still says Why I was tortured this much.

My son Ishan he is the naughtiest one and he keeps me engage. Few days back I just taught him how to read a news paper. He is just 26 months old so he cannot read it really, but yeah he pretends nicely as he is the smartest. Sometimes he follows his grandfather and asks me tea and biscuits while reading the news paper. My baby son does not even know how to hold it properly but yeah he is learning I am happy.

Ishan just called me Mumma ... Mummaaaa ....

I am too tired to read this newspaper can you read it for me ?? Oh Why not son I will.

Mumma read this page he turned the news paper and torn half of the page still he is telling me to read it.

Okay baby I will read it for you.

Read it louder. Ishan said.

Okay Sir ...!!!!

I looked at the newspaper and saw it was a news about someone getting hanged and I cannot read it in front of my kiddo. I just diverted his mind from newspaper. When you are a parent the important skill you need is to divert your kids mind from one place to another. I just kept the newspaper on my couch and took him to our balcony where he can see crows.

It is the time now for the other two kids to come from school so I have to make Ishan sleep now for sometime. I gave food to both of them and then they started sharing what has happened to them in school whole day.

The only time I get free in whole day is when Ishan is sleeping and Riah and Aarav are at their hobby classes at 5 o'clock. So I just dropped then and came home I just relaxed and closed my eyes for sometime.

My hands just went on the newspaper which was in Ishan's hand I just took it off and started reading the page which he told me to. This was very strange article which I really cannot believe.  A criminal who was caught in bank robbery killed her mother in frustration.

This was his interview before hanging him.

He said first time he was caught when he theft his teachers pen. He was very nervous and scared when his mother was called to school but she fought with the teacher badly made that teacher say that pen was her child's. He was happy he got the pen and his family supported him.

This  was the first time he tried thieving and he was successful plus he got support from his mother on the same act. His father was also a criminal but he used to stay with his maternal uncles and family and they had provided him a good environment school , food and everything. But his mother kept on supporting him for all his mistakes and he said at last because she always supported me I always went a step ahead and doubled my faults.

I became a criminal and I reached here. Even when I grew i knew that I have chooses a wrong path but I had no mode of survival.

He had a family and a son and he along with his wife , son and mother they used to stay together.
Same incident happens when his son was caught in school when he stole someone's Pencil box. My mother this time again went to school and made that person a liar and My son won. I just went back to my past and I just remembered my first mistake which made me this. I always had this anger why I became like this but I could do nothing about it , But I could not see my son becoming the same. I wanted to save my son from learning anything from me as well as  I wanted my mother to stay away from him so that she cannot make another me. I just killed the person who never stopped me doing wrong things. I killed her for my son's future. He said.

I was just stunned after reading that article . My anger for my scolding all went out from my mother and I just thanked her to give me this beautiful life and making me this.

Please share your experiences on the same if you have any. I would really appropriate your comments / suggestions on my post.

Till then Be Happy And Spread it Because Happiness is a Virus and It Spreads too fast!!!!

Thank you!!!!

Spooky Experience!

Dear reader have you ever had a spooky experience that creeped you out? One where you knew it was true but you know that no one else will believe you?
Let me share an experience that happened to me once while i was very young. Long ago i heard tales about the mystics and i was curious to explore it. Were all the stories i heard all true? I had to find out!
Thereafter after following up on some hearsay and rumors i went on a trip with my siblings to a small ashram located in the middle of the field at the pitch of night in central India.
The road was pretty rough leading up to the place, no signs of much civilization around for atleast three miles around until finally we arrived at the place we were looking to find.
There was a temple of sorts with an eerie presence to it with a lot of people gathered and smoking weed and playing drums.
I felt a cold chill down my spine as i looked around the courtyard.. Right in the middle was a peepul tree standing majestically yet with a haunting look to it with its silver leaves and trunk. The head priest or sadhu as they are called asked me to sit up in front near him alongside a middle aged woman who seemed rather distressed. The sadhu spoke in length to her about her troubles and she said she didn't know or understand why she felt so depressed in her life... Suddenly the priest shouted certain words and pressed his thumb to her forehead and recited some mantras! i was awestruck by what i witnessed next.. the woman screamed and ran around the courtyard frantically!
In my head i had a surge of thoughts "How can this be real? she MUST be faking it. this is a sham!"
while i juggled these thoughts all doubts and disbelief came to an end when i saw the woman scale the giant tree vertically!
The woman being as hefty and aged as she was ran straight up! i was disillusioned by the sight with my mouth gaping open!
"How is this possible? This defies belief!" came to my mind along with all the others that were bearing witness to what was transpiring.
The woman hung upside down by her feet on a branch for about an hour before finally three sadhus pulled her down.
They spoke certain words and sprinkled water on her face until she snapped to. And this woman didn't seem to remember anything about what had just transpired for the past hour. She seemed quite chirpy and happy as she smiled for the first time that night.
Behind me an aged man was quietly watching with his eyes wide open... This man seemed a bit familiar with his mustache and grey beard and turban. I went closer to see and i immediately recognized it was a man named Gurpreet who knew my folks from my old neighborhood.
I went up and said hello and asked if he saw what i was seeing. He quietly nodded his head while his eyes were fixated on the woman who had now come to her senses. I told him i was shocked by what i witnessed and that how any of this could be real...
He looked at me and exclaimed "that woman is my wife.. i brought her here to be cured and this is the first time after 2 years i have seen her smile"

An episode of my life which left my mouth agape and shell shocked. a truly mystifying experience!

Please share your comments or similar stories as such if you have any :)

Unspoken Promises

Today I am just thinking about the promises people made to me and how many times they kept it. For me a Promise means a lot no matter that promise was just on a small thing or big. Any promise registers my mind and keeps the space empty in it and fills it with beautiful memories and emotions when the promise was kept. And at this moment I don't want to discuss about broken promises because for me "A Promise should always be kept!!!" And the fact is those who care they always keep promises.
My phone is ringing.. Hmm some unknown number.. Let me pick it 
Ahhh I just forgot to pay my credit card bill and this was the reminder call for payment. I broke the promise of on time payment. Remember when we need to submit documents and we put our signature on few papers while applying for a new credit card ? Does that only check our identify and income ? There is hidden promise which we completely ignore and that is ON TIME PAYMENT of our bills.
They remind us to pay our bills if we have crossed a certain date then if we act our promise is kept. If we ignore they offer us some penalty and by doing that we can still keep our promises.Then also if we ignore DUDE you are in trouble they will be just behind us and our relationship with the Bank is screwed!!!But if we keep our promises we definitely get perks for it and even if we don't get we are out of debt. 
So here the point they reminded me and I immediately acted on it because I want my credit card and it is important to me. I acted because I wanted to, Otherwise I will ignore it. I will do it later.
Guess the same way we can define our personal relationship and some unspoken promises which were never so obvious to us until they reminded us. But after we know it , it is completely our wish to act on it or ignore it. 
At some point in life everything is based on necessity and priority let it be any relation. When we get married we sign on papers and many unspoken but obvious promises come with it. When we become parents we not only sign on our child's birth certificate but we sing on promises. 
We make many unspoken promises to our loved ones and sometimes they are not even clear to us at that time but when some one reminds us , its all in our own hands to act on it and to deny it. 
Every time we deny to something it takes the other person a lot of courage to come one step ahead and ask for the next try. Again if we deny and keep on denying it that gives a message which we either wanted or we were not aware of.
So , i completely twisted my credit card bill payment to relationships and promises. Does that make sense ??  
Hope the message is communicated !!!Maintain a Good and Healthy Life.
Stay Happy and Spread the Happiness!!!
