Summer Carnival- Introduction

Summer vacations are just round the corner. For kids, this is the best time of the year. No schools, no studies, no schedule to follow. For the dear mommies however, it a challenge to keep the kids engaged and interested. With the summer sun blazing hot most part of the day, kids are forced to spend maximum time within the confines of the homes. Let’s accept it, as much as we love having the kids around, we are sometimes absolutely clueless about how to keep them engaged, interested and out of the “Mommy, I am bored” pitch. Our creativity quota is exhausted soon enough and we find ourselves struggling to keep the kids busy. Sooner than later, they land up in front of the TV or a computer screen.

Some ideas might involve your kids’ friends while some are just for you and your precious little child. Look for a brand new idea or share your own notions of great time during the long summer days.

The Rose Bouquet

When the doorbell rang at 2 PM, Ashima wanted to ignore it. She wasn’t interested in entertaining friends who often turned up unannounced and overstayed their welcome. She had realized that she had become a “close friend” to many since she acquired her fully furnished 2BHK. The friendly infringement round the clock was becoming extremely uncomfortable and tiring for her. So her first reaction to the unannounced guest at the door was not unfair. She wanted to send a message. But by the third bell, she realized this “friend” probably did not understand the subtle message and needed a stronger to-the-face message.

Cabin Monologue

I feel nice. I spoke to my friend after a long time. I don’t understand why he distanced himself over the last few years. We were so close in college. We also got a job in the same company. Both of us worked hard to get where we are today. Our means were different, so were our expectations from our position. Of course, I love my family but I wanted to enjoy the benefits that came with my powerful position. He didn’t agree with me. I guess that was the reason he stopped talking to me. I was really happy to talk to him today but then he started the same old nonsense. What does he mean that it will blow in my face? That I should change? Times are changing, he said. I wanted to shout back at him that nothing has changed and it never will.

Cross Connection is not a book

Yes, you read that right. Cross Connection is not a book. Or, let me rephrase that. Cross Connection is not just a book. It is much more than that. It is a feeling I have lived for last so many years. It is a testimonial of the love of two completely opposite people who decided to come together. It is a tribute to their families with completely different cultures who came together and celebrated this bond of love. It is an ovation to the challenges that these two people and their families faced while adjusting with each other and came closer. And it is a promise that in spite of everything, this cross connection will only grow stronger.
