Finally, making time for this
wonderful activity I have been longing to write. Thank you Vidya, for coming
with such a marvelous initiative. This post is dedicated to you.
January was a month full of crazy
work hours. Writing took a backseat. But there were quite a few things that
caught my attention, things I am grateful for and writing a post like this is
always a gratifying experience. Reflecting on things that help you keep
grounded, is something I look forward to.
The month went by in haste and
now it has come to an end. Saying time flies is merely a cliché that we hear,
read, and talk with every single person. But the good part is, time has been
good to all of us, that’s the reason why don’t realize when it flew away. Isn’t
I wanted to have my own custom
domain name and I wanted this to happen in December itself. But as they say,
everything happens for a reason. And this new year, in this first month, I now
have my own custom domain name. The feeling is bliss. I cannot thankSidenough
for helping me out at every step.
Having a wonderful family and a
husband that lets you be is a rare thing to see. I am so grateful to have A in
my life. With him, even the biggest of worries seem so little, because he is
the one who keeps his cool intact and that helps me maintain my cool.
The anthology that has my poems
and story will be out next month. Pre-orders for the same have started on
Amazon. You too can order a copy of yours and I’m sure, it will be an
intriguing read for you. It’s available at 10% discount right now, with free
COD. Once the book is out in the market, it will be chargeable. That’s a
tremendous start to New Year, don’t you think?
Results were out this month of my
students who gave the exams in December. 4 of them bagged AIR ranks (16, 20,
24, 25)! All of them my students. The feeling is simply inexplicable. It was a
combined effort of all the teachers who worked equally hard and students of
course, without whose dedication it would never have been possible. But hey,
the bigger part is, maximum students got highest marks in my subjects! Yes! I
know, that’s kind of big! When I learned this, I was dancing with joy. I now realize
how exhilarating teachers and parents feel when they see their children do
well. At the end of the day, all the efforts and pains seem worthy.
My dog. He seems to be more
attached with me. He always wants to play. The moment he see me coming near him,
he starts wagging his tail and brings his ball, asking me play with him. There
is so much of innocence in those tiny eyes.
Due to crazy work hours, I could
barely give time to my family. My niece and nephew didn’t like it, but
understood my situation as well. Kids.. they teach you to find happiness in the
smallest of things. They learned how to play Uno, and every single night before
going to bed, they wanted me to accompany them. It was fun. And I too was glad,
for spending time with them.
There are countless things that
we overlook every day and that is where Vidya Sury comes in. She binds us
together. Making an effort to initiate this activity is the best thing to do in
the beginning of a New Year.
I am pleased to be a part of
Gratitude Circle workshop and look forward for the coming ones.
