Haiku : Diwali


triumph of goodness

dipawali* exudes joy

holy light oozing

Shared with Carpe diem

*Dipawali or Diwali is the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It’s the festival of lights ( Sanskrit dip = light and avali = a row i.e., a row of lights) Dipawali is celebrated in autumn. Human beings are the legates of their past good and bad deeds which either mar or mark their existence on earth, either through fortunes or misfortunes.  It is believed that an escape from this is impossible. Dipawali or Diwali is celebrated all over India  and Goddes Lakshmi and  in some places Goddes Kali or Shyama is worshipped. To know visit this page.

Children, they are the future of any nation. Their upbringing, education and both physical and mental health are of much importance than anything else. As for parents, they always try to give their children the best. Best schooling, best teachers, best manners  and culture…everything. But all these will go awry if the child suffers from ill-health. A healthy child is a happy child, and a happy child is sure to make the world a better place in every way.

Nutritional support for our children, in these days, has become more important than ever. Now one can argue on this point that wasn’t it necessary earlier? Yes, of course. But gone are those days when no preservatives were used in foods, when the soil didn’t suffer from chemical fertilizers and when, of course, the world was much free from pollution. With advent of time, with advancement of technology, everything has changed. Now our children are exposed to pollution from the very moment they see the light of this planet. The food we give them, even the most expensive ones, are gone through several processing and preservatives are used to improve the shelf-life. Moreover, some are grown far away and so when they come to the market, even though they look fresh and fine, they might have already lost the essential enzymes and other nutrients to a considerable amount. Our children are now also under stress and tension for the academic standards have increased and their awareness about the outer world and activities have increased exponentially too. The world now is more competitive and more cruel, to speak the truth.

I used to be a naughty kid :-P

Just one thing hasn’t changed (and will NEVER change), that is parent’s love for their children.We always want our children to lead a happy life. And the road to happy life is paved with good health. I can remember, in my childhood, whenever I suffered from cough and cold, my didun ( maternal grandmother) used to concoct an Ayurvedic syrup using Tulsi (basil), adrak (ginger), madhu (honey) and amla ( Indian gooseberry). It was a titanic task for her to make me wash down the thing for I used to throw all known tantrums. But however, she always succeeded. She had that time and patience.

But as I’ve already said, we are now on 21st century and life is faster and busier. As a working mother, I know how difficult it is to get different ends meet with a little child at home. More so when you’re intransigent on the health issue. I neither have time nor the patience of my didun to gather those ingredients and brew such concoction. But as a mother I want my son to be healthy and that he should grow natural immunity. But how? I was really worried and that was the moment Dabur Chyawanprash  came into rescue. I have complete faith on the time-tested formula of Dabur Chyawanprash. This is because after going through their website , I came to know that they not only use Amla and Giloy (Guduchi) but also 40 other natural ingredients which are essential to strengthen the natural immunity system of children. The exclusive formula of Dabur Chyawanprash helps to increase the NK cells (Natural Killer Cells, the medical terminology being ‘antibody’ ) and thereby increasing the natural internal defence system of the body up to 3 times.
Strengthening this internal defence mechanism means that my child would be protected from  various infections with his own strength, what more can a mother want?

And last but not the least, most of the vitamin tablets, tonics and their ilk are confronted by a wrinkled up nose, a despising look and crossed arms! But that is not the case with Dabur Chyawanprash… is accepted rather with pleasure and a smiling face. My son loves the taste! I’ve found it as a blessing. As Voltaire said, “The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.”

Thank you Dabur Chyawanprash for making my life easier and my son’s life healthier and happier.

The Birth of a Day

1-Beauty 142
Faint rays of sun appeared on the horizon,

Chirping of birds was heralding the dawn

The mystifying colour of the sky

A newly-wed bride, beaming yet shy

Wafting lazily, unborn dreams of yesternight

A new day was about to bloom, happy and bright.

Haiku: Magic Field

nodding heads with breeze

golden crops of magic field

blessings of Nature



1-ChaNdipur 089

That aroma of coffee, those memories bright

The  hue of the setting sun, an ever-new sight.

Soft whirling circles, a stone in the pond

An evening to remember, nostalgia and beyond.

Garnering happiness with every little bit of peace

I’m drinking, those memories bright, to the lees.
