My fear.

‘Fear’ the word itself makes  one fear.No one can say i am not feared of any thing ,
each one will have fear about something some will be silly or it will be big. I am a sort of person who fears for everything from childhood.I am soft spoken,calm and quiet girl who is not much interested in any adventures and so my life goes normally.


My fears are countless and i can write pages of it.From where shall i start from.When i was small i was even frightened to talk and hence even now i can’t talk boldly and loudly.I even stammer now to talk.In school and college i was a quite girl and i never talk much.Can you believe that i don’t know the boy’s name in my class.
When i walk on walk if i see a car/vehicle coming far away i use to stay behind  afraid of the rash driving they ride.When i travel by auto i very much concerned about the speed.I can’t tolerate the over take the drivers take on road and i pray till i reach the place safe.Another fear is the people who cross the road while i travel by bus/auto or any vehicle.Once while i was seated at back of a bike i just jumped down when seeing a lady crossing her bike before us just not bother to look back.Due to my jump the person taking me got hurt and i didn’t.

My contribution for Akshaya Patra through Blogadda

Blogadda has come with a new idea of funding a child's food for a year to Akshaya patra for  every blogpost a blogger writes for this theme.I already wrote one and decided to go with another blogpost.For a good cause one  can write any time.

We are really proud of our country’s  rich heritage and we a have great history too.Our country is full of natural resources.In one side our country is growing day by day and in other side  many people don’t even get their daily requirements.Many families are below poverty line and don’t have enough to  feed their children with basic food.Many family send their children as labours for  a very low wages in order  to fulfill their big family needs.This has to be changed.Child labour must be totally banned/stopped.

We are now a days feel proud to live in this high advanced era but  not bother about the cleanliness and sanitation in our country.We lift our collars and say proudly that we  are very much skilled and advanced in life style but did anyone realise what we are leaving for the next generation.

My contribution for Open Defecation free Villages In India

We all are proud to say that we are in the very highly scientific era with daily a new development in technology.There is a rapid advancement in this area but do it is same everywhere.Can you imagine there are still a house without a toilet in India.Can you believe it?I have read this ,that More people have cell phones than toilets.We are able to buy fancy gadgets and items for them but never try to built a toilet for them.I really feel shamed for this.

Our Country India is focused on villages and can say soul of India lives in villages.About 60% of the population lives in villages.People prefer village because of it stress free calm life and beautiful  scenery surrounding.Some people don’t have toilets in their house here in village and its mainly in villages in states Maharashtra ,Orissa and some northern states.One need to go to an open land for their daily sanitation need.

A healthy child makes happy home

Every Mom’s dream is that her children are free from any disease and they have more immunity to fight against the germs.But is it possible ,do all the children have the power to fight against the germs.The big answer will be  “NO”.


Yes ,in this modern days kids hesitate to eat healthy foods which we when kids use to eat.Due to this they often fall sick and become weak which worries me a lot.


If I ask them to eat fruits and green leafy vegetables ,they mostly deny to eat it.My kids are so allergic to fruits,they almost hate all types of fruits,I push them at least to eat a banana a day.Also i make some baked goodies with other fruits and make them relish the fruits nutrients not knowing.But this cannot be done all time as sometime they identify it and avoid to eat them.

Chapter:23 -In Confusion

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It felt like the coldest and darkest evening of her life.
Tara's head was reeling and she was feeling like something was clutching at her heart. The photograph of the third person caught by Jenny's camera couldn't have been any clearer. With the huge crowd of people around them she found it difficult to breath.

Somehow Shekhar and Tara managed to leave the crowd behind and reached their flat, with Roohi still unconscious and Jenny in tow.

As Roohi was still not fine they paid more attention to her. Tara gave her a hot towel wipe while Shekhar stepped into the kitchen to prepare Roohi's favourite sweet corn soup. The little girl felt much better after relishing a bowl of the soup and soon fell asleep again out of extreme tiredness, from the frightful evening. None of them uttered a word about the episode, until Roohi was safely tucked in bed again.
