Why do we think differently

Why are thoughts different

Have you ever thought about why our thoughts are different than our parents or our grandparents?

Why we think the way we think, our how does this statement come into picture yeh log sunte hi nahi, aaj kal sub bache apni manmani karte hai(this generation doesn't listen to anyone, they are their own boss).

I had gone to visit one of my relatives in Mumbai. We were just planning a get-together and the ladies of the house ask when are you guys going to be free so we can have lunch or dinner together.

The united answer was by all the children between their late 20's was, yes we will meet though not at anyone's place.
We will go out and have food and enjoy our time together.
The immediate reply my aunt gave was this is what all the kids say nowadays.

So the point is why do we say like this or why do we think like this:

Before the 20th century, we were never behind time or money. To say it correctly we were not running behind money in less amount of time. The needs of people during that time were very minimal.
 During those days people were just struggling to live and get their livelihood (Roti,Kapda, Makan) these were enough.

Women were so busy and happy in their daily chores that they never thought about rest, Pizza's or Burgers, not even a movie. 

Their world revolved around their children and family. The men in the house were working or were doing some family business from 09:00 to 6:00 approx. 

The standard working time. It is not that people don't still do that there are people who still do these shift timings.

 Women's world these days still revolve around their families. Things have not fully changed.

 I am able to say this because I am married so these things still happen.

So what has changed:

Women have become independent they have started following and chasing their dreams.

Time management has become a key factor in today's world. 
The men of the family are more involved in many other things. The holiday time is much less than before.

The spare time which you get is wasted on mobile phones, video games or navigating through social sites.

 The work pressures have increased and the deadlines have decreased the family time.

So, the family time has come to a point of extinction, which is converted to 'ME-TIME'.

So, whenever there is a get together at anyone's residence, we don't prepare huge meals with a variety of dishes single-handed with a smile on our face the way our mom's used to do. 

What we do now a day is to hire help, assign a maid or order online.
Though at some places a lady still cooks for the whole army of relatives or friends alone without any help. My mom still does it. What do we say Mom's are superheroes with supernatural powers.

We opt for the above options as these days we don't meet or socialize much we don't want our dear Moms, Wifes or any other lady member of the family being in the kitchen and working hard on a weekend where they also get only one day to rest.

Definitely, there is an option where on weekend only men cook for the whole family or friends. 

Would I suggest that? 

No no, I won't, poor men are also tired after a long week at work. Why not everyone helps in cooking like planning a barbecue or snacks day. Where each family brings some snacks we all go to gardens, enjoy, play games and recall the old childhood days.

How does this sound? I hope I have cleared just one point why we think the way we think.

Keep Smiling
God bless 

Will soon come with another blog till then take care

Lockdown:Father -Son bonding

This pandemic might be tough for parents and caregivers due to lots of reasons, managing household, children, office and whatnot. Living in a metro city doesn’t give you much time with your family. Working parents are not able to give much time to their kids or themselves. So this lockdown is considered as a boon even after so many cons and other days to day challenges. We look at it with the eyes of a father. They are able to take care and look at the progress of their child, achieving milestones etc. The phrases we hear from them is acha use ye bhi atta hai(he knows this as well), he knows this Woowww!! He just said papa or he just took his first step towards me. So many awe moments and their bonding I have seen. My son worships his dad, he follows him everywhere in the entire house. As a mother I have stepped down one step, just to see them bonding, loving, caring for each other.  Not that we have not faced many problems, not that this pandemic has not given us challenges, but the d

Motherhood-which noone told you about

Those two red lines change your world upside down. Happiness and fear which takes place with total excitement. Just someone doesn't tell you, what all it comes with. Your mother who you feel is very healthy or has so many health issues were just given by you. Which she just accepted it happily and lovingly without complaining about it to you ever. She was as beautiful as now just with maintained body weight without even going to a gym. So pregnancy never tells you nor someone never tells you, your body is never going to be same ever. The wasit which was always cherished and proudly fitted into your skinny jeans won't be able to fit in for 9 months or may be never after that. Sleepless nights deciding to sleep on the left side or right side is what is the struggle on. As the months pass the need to urinate increases,  ever-increasing need to use the washroom. The hormonal changes which are at the highest and strongest point in your whole life are going to make you cry at any poi
