Q is for ….Queen

I saw queen movie quite late then my friends. But wait was worth n u quite liked it.. So far best movie of Kangna Ranaut’s career.. In fact I never expected such performance for her .. Director has also captured simple scenes n daily life in beautiful way.. I like the chemistry between Rani n her three roommates at Amsterdam ..

The only problem in this movie n most of hindi movies is why in our movies heroine realise their worth after getting rejected from boy.. Why bitter experience is required to come out of our cocoon ..
May be a long way to go for Bollywood to come out this stereotypes

P.S – I wrote this entire post from my phone .. My first phone post .. I completely forget to schedule today ‘s post when I m out of town without laptop…thankfully phone is my saviour here 😄

K is for Kangaroo

Angel loves books from the beginning. She has favourite books and favourite characters and lot of time she create her own story from those characters. During her first year I introduced her to lot of board books with single letter on them like books on playground, my first words, animals, alphabets. In her second year, I started story books and her first story book was “A blessing from above”. It’s not a story which is easy to understand or advisable as first book of child. I just picked it up as that time I was not much aware of children books. But till date this is her favourite book.

Its story of little KANGAROO fondly known as Mumma Roo in the book who doesn’t have baby. She went for walk in a jungle saw beautiful butterflies with their babies fluttering in field of flower.Next she met squirrel gathering acorns for their family. Mamma Kangaroo wish she also have baby with who she can play and share the joy of life. She felt tired after lot of walk and sat under tree. There was a bluebird nest on that tree and lil bluebirds were coming out of eggs. When last bluebird came from nest there was no space left and bluebird fell from tree into mumma kangaroo’s lap. Mumma Roo hugged the baby and took permission from mother bluebird to keep their new baby with her.

Its beautiful story to teach children about adoption and its reasons.

D is for …Disney

I am taking part in A to z Challenge and today’s letter is D

D is for Disney – I have recently brought cute lilttle Disney princess school bag for Angel as she is too much in princess mode these days.
Everything has to be pink or purple for her. Red is kind of ok but not her favorite.

I tried hard that she doesn’t get too much liking toward pinks but guess girls are wired in that way that pink bug bites them definitely at some stage of childhood.
Everywhere in mall, girls dress, toys, school bags are mostly pink. If you try to look for gender neutral colors in bags it mostly superhero in fighting pose and she doesn’t like it at all.

BTW have any of you watched Frozen. First Disney princess movie where heroine is not fantasying about love and looked brave.
I recommend this movie for all kids.

A must watch movie for all kids and even parents will like it too.

Today school has started for new session and my big girl is in K.G now. She was super excited to go to school and meet her friends.
Thankfully no shuffling and all her old classmates are in same section

Going to Park..

12 Mar

Its always a pleasure to be surround by lush greenery. I love going to parks with my family. There is so much for kids as well as adults to do in the park

1)Breathe in fresh air. We normally don’t get it with so many buildings around. The thing which was common in the past has nowadays become rare. So I am always conscious of the fact that my kids should go out in nature at least once a day.
2)Swings – Hours become second when you are on a swing. Angel and Lil prince both just adore all kinds of swings available in the park.
3)Cycling – Angel love to roam and do zoom zoom on her bicycle. She is still using the training wheels. I think it’s time to move on to proper cycle now 
4)Nature walk and I should say run for kids as they never walk. They just want to run madly chasing each other and playing numerous games.
5)Exercise – There are so many ppl exercising that non-exercise enthusiastic person like me also get in mood to do some lifts there.

No Man’s Land – Book Review

29 Jan

no-mans-land

From the blurb –

”Land – you cant burn it like money;you cant melt it like gold. You can only buy it, sell it,snatch it, grab it. Title change, government change, but the land stays where it is- unmoved sterile. That is its beauty. But somewhere deep down, men want to grab its immortality and slip it into their horribly insecure lives. They never can, but they never will stop trying”

No Man’s land is written by Nilesh Shrivastava and published by Fingerprint publisher.

This book doesn’t seem interesting to me from the blurb however I have read some really good reviews about it so when got a chance to get review copy from blogadda ..I just grabbed it 🙂 Surprisingly I was completely hooked to it till end. It quite different from routine stuff we got from lot of Indian authors about college and love life.

No Man’s land is story spread across 3 generations. Agastya’s father run a small paint shop in busy city of Delhi. Its doing moderately well and they are quite satisfied with income.
When time came for Agastya to join family business, he was not quite happy with the scale of business. With the help of distant cousin Shashwat who works for his father, agastya started expanding the business and took it new scales. Agastya has a inclination toward her neighbor Shailja who is 8yr elder to him. Their love couldn’t last long and Shailja got married to somebody else.

In due course of time Agastya got married to Shubangi on his father’s proposal.
Some unfortunate incidents bring his sister and brother in law to their house and Agastya started loosing control over business.

Some more twist and turns take Agastya to farm land at sirca village, Gurgaon. A really big piece of land which now he want to give to his two sons, one legitimate and other one illegitimate both of whom are interested in land for different reasons. But is it that easy to divide the land.

My take on book – Its really literary masterpiece from Indian author. Quite different from regular run of the mill love stories and college life. Characters are very well developed and story seems so real as if is happening to next door neighbour. I like it more because of Delhi and Gurgaon setting also as I stay in Gurgaon ;-). I specifically liked the character of shahwat who is doing his work with full dedication throughout his life without expecting anything in return. Ending did disappointed me as it was quite filmy type not real. It seems as if auther is in hurry of completing the book and just ended it in a very casual way.

Overall nice read and I do recommend it to all of you.. Do read it 🙂

Author – Nilesh Shrivastav holds degree in Computer engineering and currently working in financial sector from fourteen years. He lives with his wife and son in Delhi.

My Rating – 4.5/5
