My lovely Dadi:) Grandmother! ❤️😘

My Dadi❤️💙💚💛🧡

I adore my Dadi a lot and I have several beautiful memories with her. My Dadi used to pamper me a lot whenever I went for summer vacations in New Delhi, India. She used to keep telling me to never stay hunger and to eat a rich diet always. This is your period that you should be eating because you are young, and you can digest easily now then later.  Dadi gave an example of her that when she was my age, she was eating like she did not care of becoming fat at all! In my Dadi’s childhood, eating and playing was everything in her time.

My Dadi and I have slept together in almost every vacation. She gave me massages on my hair so that I could have a good night sleep. When I was little, my Dadi and I used to have a fun time together. I sat in her lap, and she used to swing me around. I really love my Dadi, and I used to keep kissing her and expressing all my love to her.

Dadi was a helpful and a caring person. She used to wake up early mornings and have her shower then she used to pray in her bedroom prayer room for hours. While praying, she dozed off often, but she never stopped prayer for a second. She was fully devoted to God, she used to feed all the meals to God first and afterwards she used to eat.  Every morning, my Dadi sent some fresh fruits to temple as a token for a blessing.

From last past few years, Dadi got ill, and she had to go through a pacemaker surgery. This surgery made her weak physically. She was required to have attendants to help her out with all her daily routine chores. Her attendants were kind and well trained because they knew how to handle Dadi with care and affection. They made sure that my Dadi was given food and medicine on the right time.

On the other hand, my Dadi was courageous because she did not give up and her willpower was very strong too. She was brave enough to survive despite of being in the ICU for five times.  As time passed by, Dadi’s condition became serious. Dadi became weaker and weaker. She could not walk very well and got tired fast. She could not chew properly because her mouth had pimples, so she was given her meals in a blended form.  My Dadi was enthusiastic and keen to get well so she did not give up hope and she survived this state for 2 years.  She loved to follow her exercise routine. She used to exercise for three times during the whole day, so she was improving from time to time, and she started to walk and eat well again.

There occurred a time when Dadi became ill once again, and she was too critical. All doctors were giving different opinions about her. Some said she will not make it, and some said she will be fine, just stay positive. I was really worried for Dadi because every time she went in the ICU my heart just sank and I felt that she will be going far away from me. When I went to see her in the hospital, I was really trying from holding back my tears. I just could not see her in that condition at that moment of time. She stayed in hospital for a long time, she improved, and she got worse too. My Dadi was so strong that she fought her battle very eagerly. When every organ in her body gave up, she was still fighting with herself to get well again. Unfortunately, when Dadi could not handle it anymore she gave up. She had a cardiac arrest. I wished I had spent more time living with my Dadi. I thought whenever we settle back to New Delhi, I will have lots of time to be with her but unfortunately some things do not turn out to be as we had planned.

When I got the awful news of my Dadi death, I was shocked, and my heart sank. It was in the morning when the sorrowful news was transmitted through the telephone. I thought I was having an unpleasant dream and soon it would collapse. It was a bitter truth that could not be folded. When my Dadi’s dead body came home from the hospital, I started weeping within myself. Afterwards, I went close to my Dadi’s body to greet and touch her for one last time. I placed a garland on her; I just exploded with tears in my eyes. All her memories came to me briefly!

Well now here I am in India, and we have different rituals and customs that we must follow in our Indian culture when a person dies!  This was all new to me because I had never witnessed the customs of performing this kind of a prayer! We had to make lots of preparations for this prayer from day one.  We kept a prayer for my Dadi for five days because she can live peacefully wherever she goes in her next birth. This five-day prayer was followed by one big prayer. This major prayer is for the last and it is done in a grand way on the final day of prayer proceeded by lunch.

Whenever I go into my Dadi’s bedroom, all her wonderful memories come as a flashback to me, and I cannot hold back my tears. I miss her a lot. It is hard to believe that she is no more. Dadi’s bedroom feels really empty without her being there because Dadi used to spend most of her time in her chamber. I feel that I am dreaming, and this cannot be the truth. It feels that my Dadi is here, and she is with me all the time. She is not physically here but mentally she is with me all the time. Dadi is in my heart always!

Life is very unpredictable; we do not know what life throws at us each moment. Time is just a change of a blink of an eye, and it will not return the same way again. We should spend each moment with our relatives and loved ones like there is no tomorrow! My Dadi was everything to me and she will be there for me always. One thought occurs to me all the time, what happens to the person who dies and where does that person go from there? I have lots of her memories which will put a smile on my face, and it will make me laugh too! Please do not waste your time before it runs out of your hands, spend your precious time with your grandparents because you would never realize that how soon the time passed away from you. You should not have a regret for not spending time with your loved ones for rest of your life before the time gets too late for you to realize it!

Education!!!📚📖

 “Education is the law of nature.”

Education is a strong word yet important in our lives! Everyone needs to have teaching in this generation. We should be grateful that we have this opportunity in our lives because education is the first step towards becoming successful.  It is the most vital stage in our lives due to receiving knowledge. We can achieve our goals and dreams no matter what they are with learning!

We can accomplish several things with education and make our future shine out bright. There is lots of hard work required for us to do but at the end, you will not have any regrets about it because your precious time will not be wasted. You will be delighted to earn a degree and obtain your goals & dreams too. 😊

Everyone needs to have an education to flourish their lives in today’s generation! 

Festivals! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

There are several festivals around the world which makes us want to celebrate these in a grand manner. Many people have different ways and rituals for performing these events.

I am going to discuss about 3 types of festivals which I think are interesting to learn no matter how many different cultures there are!

Christmas🎄⛪️

This holiday comes every year on December 25 and is celebrated by Christians. It is honored because Jesus was born on this date. Children are excited and they wait each year to receive numerous gifts by Santa Claus. All the houses are fixed up with decorations and Christmas trees. People go to churches on Christmas Eve and stay up all night listening to carols and they return the next day early morning.

Diwali 💥💥

This event shows up in October-November and does not have a certain date.  It is performed by Indians. We celebrate it because good won against evil.  Everyone lights up candles in their houses and hold a special prayer too. Children & adults burn firecrackers to celebrate their happiness and eat handful of Indian sweets. They distribute presents to their families and friends too.

Eid 🕋 🕌

This carnival occurs twice a year and is feasted by Muslims. This Eid is solemnizing because to end the fast of the holy month of Ramadan. These people get engaged in many donations. Children receive money (Eidee) on this special day from their loved ones. They visit their relatives and pray in mosques by doing this, they cherish these peaceful moments with God.

My Final Thoughts

These festivals are proclaiming because people interact with their families and their relationships become stronger. People are happy during the festivals, and they enjoy their time especially children who are glad to have holidays during them!

Junk 🍟🍔🍕🍭🍿🍫 vs. healthy🍏🍆🥕🥦🍌🍐food😋

Today’s generations prefer junk more than healthy food.  They love to consume a variety of things from potato chips to chocolates. Most children would give excuses to not eat their vegetables, but they rather have all types of junk foods. Infants do not understand the fact is that healthy foods benefit them not junk ones.

Junk foods contains lots of fat therefore it is not good to nibble on. These types of foods will lead everyone to obesity in the future. These days people from all ages tend to attack on fast foods especially when they are stressed out in their lives.  It is said that these snacks make them feel delighted and relaxed.

On the other hand, healthy foods are nutritious for us. They contain lots of vitamins and minerals for our body that will eventually make us stronger.  We should have lots of fruits and vegetables in our diets. Children should have vegetables and fruits because it is important for their growth. They should eat these in their early stages so that they can prevent harmful diseases in near future!

Start thinking seriously about your health and try to reduce junk food from life!

Strengths & weaknesses💪🏽😢

Human beings have strengths and weaknesses that prepares them to face several challenges in their lives. People should be bold enough to point their flaws and strengths in front of others. Mostly, everyone focuses more on their strengths than weaknesses because they tend to target the best qualities about them. I believe that everyone should have the courage to accept their weaknesses as well more than strengths. They must overcome their weaknesses if they want to be successful in life. We should make ourselves strong to achieve our goals in life! It is not easy to deal things in life without any struggles. Life has many struggles, and we should be ready to face them with our strengths and weaknesses.  These are two basic elements which makes life exciting for us to live. Believe in yourself and try experimenting it too!  

Advantages of water! 💦💧

 

Hydrogen is an element that is found in water. Water is the most important element in our life for survival. Water kills many diseases and bacteria in our body. Humans, plants, and the animals need water for living a healthier life.

People 🧒👩🏼‍🦱👱🏼‍♂️

Humans basic need is water for survival because it is the most important liquid for them. People must drink eight glasses of water every day. Water is useful for our daily chores such as in cooking, cleaning, and for taking a shower as well. Our body is made up of 70% of water. It is very healthy for us to drink water because it prevents us from getting different types of diseases. We should not waste water because it is precious to us.

Plants 🌱🌿🍃☘️

Plants require water so that they can grow up fast. Their main food is water and soil. They need water once in a week. Plants should be kept at outdoors because sunlight is beneficial for the plants’ growth. Plants consume water and sunlight together to grow. Water plays an essential role for plants.

Organisms 🦡🐁🦔🐾

Animals need water for survival too just like the humans. They must go and search for water especially the ones who are homeless because the animals are not lucky as the humans are. The animals like to play with the water too. Water plays an important role for animals such as for survival and for playing as well.

Final Thoughts for Readers 📚

As a conclusion, water is very important for humans, plants, and the animals. We should be thankful to God for the precious water that He created for our survival on this planet. Please do not waste this water for our future generations!

 

Emotions😊😔😞

Emotions are a strong feeling that people sense for others, objects, and in relationships as well. Emotions make peoples’ lives become more beautiful. There are many different types of sentiments throughout this world that includes from happiness and sorrowfulness too. We are so grateful that we can experience each one of them for specific occasions. Everyone can express their words a lot from emotions if they cannot through conversations.

Emotion has 7 letters, and I would like to state seven different words that would fit in like a jigsaw puzzle in our daily life’s reactions for several situations.

  • Envy
  • Mad
  • Optimism
  • Thrill
  • Interested
  • Outgoing
  • Nervous

Emotions create a powerful impact on everyone!

Dreams 💤🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀

Dreams have no limitations in our lives. We can dream several things and make them possible if we want to. No one cannot stop us from dreaming! It can change many peoples’ lives in plenty of ways such as encouraging them towards achieving their goals.

We can approach our dreams if we try to work hard to make them come true. We should believe in ourselves and never give up easily on it. There are numerous obstacles that will occur in our way and make us feel depressed and we might think things are not working out as we planned them to be. The best part is if we do not go through this phrase, we will not realize our excitement after accomplishing our dreams.

Everyone in this world has the right to dream and fulfill their wishes no matter who they are!  If you can dream, then you have the capability to obtain it even so whatever the consequences are.

So, people start making your dreams come true regardless of all the other things that are blocking you all from performing them! HURRY BEFORE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME RUNS AWAY!!!!

Indian movie review-Chhichhore 🎬🍿

My family and our family friends went to see a Hindi movie called Chhichhore. This movie was released on September 6, 2019, and we watched it on the same day.  The show was in Cinescape Al-Fanar @ 6:20pm in Kuwait. It entertained us for 2 hrs and 20 minutes. The movie is starring with these actors, Shraddha Kapoor, and Sushant Singh Rajput. Movie genre is comedy and drama.

This movie passes a great message to all the people around the globe. We should never stop trying and giving up on things that are challenging and tough to do in life.  We must be strong enough to face them!

We really loved the movie because it has four elements that are love, friendship, sacrifices, patience. This movie showed love between parents and son. It has a great significance of displaying friendship between friends during hard times.  It contained many sacrifices. Lastly, all the characters worked with patience.

A family outing on a weekend👨‍👩‍👧

On July 6, 2018, my family and I went to see an Indian Movie named Sanju. The show was in Ajial Mall, Kuwait City at 6:45 pm. We had reached in cinema 15 minutes late. The movie was started already. This movie was based on Sanjay Dutt’s biopic. It talked about his real-life story in the movie. It has starred with these actors Ranbir Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Manisha Koirala, Sanjay Dutt, and Dia Mirza. Overall, the film was good. It had a different story unlike the other films which only shows love as the main story line. Ranbir Kapoor acted so well in the movie. He dubbed exactly like Sanjay Dutt. I would rate this movie 2/5 by myself.  After so many days, I felt good for myself while watching this movie. We ate popcorn and nachos in the movies too.

Our creator & everything! 🕉☦️☪️✝️

What is the definition of God? God cannot be seen but He stays in our hearts always. Everyone knows that God is one but the directions for praying to Him are several. People belong to different religions, and they have different types of Gods that they want to believe in. God is the messenger in this world, and He knows what is best for us. He wrote our destinies beforehand.

I think and believe that God is one and we should respect and love Him because He created us, and He showed us where we belong on this planet. When we are happy, and we have all that we need, we tend to forget God and we do not thank Him at all. When all the problems knock at our doors, we run to Gods’ temples to pray for making all the troubles vanish away from our lives. This to me is unacceptable because we should remember Him always no matter in joy times or sorrow times. We get our lives according to our karmas that we have performed in our last birth. No matter what we do in this birth we cannot make up for our last birth deeds. So, it is said that we all should do great things in lives to get a good life in our next birth. We should thank and say divine words to God so that we can make our lives happier and let all the positivity enter our lives. From my point of view, it is important to help the poor and sick people because God wants us to treat everyone equally.

There are many selfish people who pray to God only for themselves. These people want specific things from God that is the reason why they pray and remember Him always. People of this kind are plenty in the world today. We should encourage this kind of people to think about others as well; so that God will be happy for them and bless them as well. These people show to God that they are the only ones who are important to Him. God loves and cares for everyone in the same way and does not differentiate among people.

Overall, I like to conclude with that God is one but there are many different paths that we follow for praying to God. We should never forget God no matter how situations are. We should help the poor and sick people so that God can be happy for us and bless us too. We should not think about only for ourselves but for others as well. Whatever you do to others, will come back to you eventually. Be grateful to God that He has given you this life. Never complain to Him, if you do then think once about other people who cannot afford to do things like you can do. Have faith with patience and believe in God and you will be able to accomplish your goals and dreams one day!
