Today is Grandparents day and it’s time to #LoveJatao to them

Nabeel has is maternal grandparents living in the same city while his paternal grandparents live in the same state. Today he cannot spend the day with any of them physically but since morning they have been on his mind. Post having wished them he has been busy selecting pictures (of him with his grandparents) to create a collage which he plans to gift them on their next meeting. Kids are enthusiastic especially when you ask them to do something for their grandparents, after all their relationship is so pure and honest!

Grandparents make the world a better place!

It is commonly said that Grandparents spoil their grandchildren, which is true they spoil them real by showering true love and nothing but true love. I have been pampered by my grandparents and love seeing how Nabeel enjoys the same pampering from his grandparents.

Grandparents are magicians in true sense

In today’s world of nuclear parenting where the day starts and ends with parents, children year to spend time with their grandparents. Parents tend to be harsh and unreasonable at times but grandparents are always loving and caring. They have their own way of handling a situation and comforting the child. Grandparents are magicians in true sense.

Grandparents definitely make the world a better place but the question is, are we doing anything to make the world a better place for them? All they need is our time, they have all the love to fill in that time.

Nabeel is very much attached to his grandparents. Though he might not talk or meet them often but he misses them deeply. The spark in his eyes says it all when he learns that dada-dadi or nana-nani are coming home. I have seen him sob secretly when they leave and I have seen him throw all possible tantrums when they are around. I believe the bond Nabeel shares with his grandparents is very similar to what most grandparents and grandkids share – a bond of trust, respect and above all affection!

Grandparents definitely make the world a better place but the question is, are we doing anything to make the world a better place for them? All they need is our time, they have all the love to fill in that time.

Celebrating Mothers Everyday

We recently celebrated Mother’s Day but the truth is, a day, a year, a lifetime is not enough to thank and honour this very reason of our being. Mothers are an epitome of selfless love, and the world is blessed with extraordinary mothers who show us through their many ways what it is like to sacrifice with a smile and never expect anything in return.
Each mother has a story and every story is inspiring and worth sharing with the world. I have compiled a series of articles that document firsthand journeys of mothers in different situations and are a delight to read.
