Interviewed By TimesofAmma- A community of Mommies for Mommies


Motherhood changes a woman’s life in unexpected ways. It’s a roller-coaster ride of emotions. Every mother has a different story to tell. And some mothers choose to tell it through their blogs. Times of Amma is one such platform where Moms, of all varieties-stay at home, working moms to work from home moms, share their stories to connect and inspire. In October, this sisterhood of mother ran a feature where some Mommy-Bloggers where interviewed and featured on the website. I was fortunate to be part of this bandwagon. Excerpts of my interaction with TimesofAmma :-


What was it that prompted you to become a blogger?
I am a thinker by default. My mind gets stimulated by things happening around and there is a hurricane of thoughts thereafter. I realized that blogging was one avenue where I could responsibly express those thoughts and also learn more by people’s responses. Read more…..


Do you find it hard to get your voice heard in the crowded blogosphere?
Blogosphere is becoming crowded but most of it is run-of-the-mill mediocre stuff. There is still a lot of scope for the right kind of content. Read More…

What tips do you have for other Indian Mom bloggers?
Moms today are smart and educated. But still, being a Mom is a tough task and all of us have had our share of ups and downs. Share your stories. Read More…..

About TimesofAmma- The Times Of Amma was born in El Salvador, where I grappled with being a brand new mother in a brand new land and no support system. My social life was at an all-time low and reduced to babbles with my five-month old daughter, ranting at my husband and gesturing at my exclusively Spanish-speaking housekeeper. Till one day I internet-searched myself into an expatriate mother's forum on a social networking site. Suddenly the doors opened to a world of play dates and birthday parties and mom and baby coffee meet-ups.
Finding this community of moms made life easier with recommendations on the best parks, family friendly eateries, activities and so on. And suddenly being an expat mom was not so difficult anymore.
It is this warm embrace of the sisterhood of motherhood that I hope to virtually pass on with this blog.
From honest conversations on parenting, features on inspirational mothers, grandmother's columns, mom-approved recipes to easy crafts, the Times Of Amma is run by a mother for mothers, especially expat mothers who are bringing up kids away from their families and cultural support systems.
The Times Of Amma, today is all about being a virtual resource where everyone from working mums to Stay At Home Mums to Work From Home Mums and every other kind of Mum/Amma/Mummy/Momma/Ammi feel welcome and supported.
We might be away from our own Mums and Ammas, but we are just a click away from this sisterhood of mothers. (Source: http://www.timesofamma.com/birth-story)

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.
