Christmas is over and what a Christmas it was!! Glitz and glitter everywhere. Every house and every tree shimmering in beautiful colorful lights. Holiday songs playing on radio and television. Everybody shopping for gifts and every store outdoing itself in throwing holiday deals.

Christmas was in the air. Everywhere. πŸ™‚

Except, on social networking platforms, where war of word is going on about the showing offΒ of Christmas Gifts.

Big Question is – If we should post the picture of Gifts that we have given to our kids for Christmas?

Some argue, that this is a way of showing off of how much you can afford? How much you can spend on your gifts? How expensive your gifts are and how many of them you have bought?

Would it be called bragging, if you are posting a picture of your Kid with 10 gifts under Christmas tree for him?Β

Every parent wants to give their child the very best of the world, but not every parent can afford a new Tablet/Phone, or a brand new Video Game. Does that mean, that they love their kids any less? Or, should their kids feel less blessed this Christmas?

But, there is also another viewpoint. The perspective that it is a festive season, and holidays are for pampering your kids and loved ones with toys and gifts of expensive nature. If not now then when? You would love to have your kid to have that brand new video game this Christmas, if this is what he was longing for. So what’s wrong with that? If you want to post a picture of your elated kid with his Gifts, then what is wrong with kid? Everyone wants to see a Happy Child.

As they say, to each his own. In this case too, it depends on what are you trying to convey to the world and to your kid too. Ultimately, Christmas is the festival celebrating birth of Jesus, who has given everything for the less fortunate ones.

It is a festival of giving. Let us teach our kids importance of giving, along with rejoicing the joys of receiving.

  • Do you know that Ballet started almost 500 years ago, in Italy?

  • Do you know that on average ballerinas wear out 2-3 pairs of pointe shoes per week?

  • Do you know that a male ballet dancer can lift over 1 & a half tonnes worth of ballerinas? That’s the same as picking up a Hippo! πŸ™„

  • Do you know that a three-hour ballet performance is roughly equivalent to running 18 miles?

I am now feeling sorry for myself…. Why didn’t I learned ballet dancing?? Is it too late now? 😦

Last Day of 2013

Last Day of 2013
Last Day of 2013

Last day of a Year, for some it’s time to retrospect, for some to party, for some to make new resolutions and for some starting of a new beginning. For me, it’s just another day. (Just another day with lots of options to party πŸ™‚ )

Seriously, what difference does it make? Be it 31st December or 31st of January or 31st of any other month. Why are we so obsessed with it? Specially when we all know, that nothing is gonna change. What drastic event would happen between this 31st December and 1st of January, that will make your life perfect? How is it that what you haven’t done this whole last year, will surprisingly be your motto for the next year?

Those who are going to make resolutions of getting in shape, will join the gym in January, will do exercise for ten to fifteen days, and then most of them will say, β€œWe are so busy, it’s hard to take time out for exercise.”

Those who are planning to be more positive and be nice and good to others, will try hard, really hard (Yes, if you have to try to be nice, you will have to try really very hard. Believe me, you are just not wired to be nice). They will be nice till the moment they will see their arch enemy pretending to be nicer. πŸ™‚

Those who are planning to learn new things, like learning a new craft or skill, most probably would leave the classes within two weeks. (unless, they have paid so heavily, that they want to extract every penny paid.)

I am not trying to be all pessimistic here, just wanted some realism to sync in. Be real, and understand one thing that you can not change yourself in a single day, just because that day is 1st of January. Yes, you can change in a single day, in fact sometimes, in a single moment, but in that case reason just won’t be a date, it would be something more, something worth a change. So, be Real.

Years come and go, we change every year, and every day. What our motto should be? To be that change every day. Don’t wait for a year. Don’t wait for a special day. Do it today. Learn it today. Act on it today.

Every year I am learning something new. Making new friends, meeting new people, seeing new places and doing something new. I am growing. (not in size, God, please don’t jinx that). I am growing as a person. (I am not growing another person too. Thank god, for that too. Three are enough for me. πŸ˜‰ )

My hopes from 2014 are also the same. Let me learn, let me know, let me meet, let me seek, let me discover, let me grow. Let me be, Me.
