Fight like a Girl.

Does perfect parenting ever exist?


Me and my husband will be completing 3 years of our marriage this month and we had plans to have a winter baby. However, we dropped that plan since the corona virus outbreak, since we didn’t want a pandemic baby.

 

I really regret the times when I have hurt my parents intentionally or unintentionally as a child. But now when I look back at my life, how it has changed and what I have become, I really feel proud of my parents for being such fantastic parents. There is nothing I want to change in my past, everything good and bad experience made me a better and smarter person. I am blessed to be my father’s favourite girl and mother’s best friend. I was always provided with enough freedom which I needed and also restrictions when my parents felt it was needed. I used to receive pocket money only for being a good child otherwise there was no such thing as pocket money. Yet I was always given whatever I asked for, so I never felt the need for money. May be this also saved me from splurging my parents’ money unlike other kids and being self-reliant person when I started earning.

 

 

There is only one thing which I wish to change, remove, erase, delete or whatever term you coin it. I wish, in my joint family my parents would have been little more careful about me and may be my siblings and cousins; since our house was filled with majority of girls. I wish they could protect us from sexual abuse, it could sound like a taboo word for a person like me to write something on this topic. But someone has to speak up and let others know it’s ok to share and let it go. I don’t say it was very irresponsible of my parents but some where during my childhood due to lack of awareness, I never felt like sharing with my parents, friends, sisters or anyone, especially when you are the shy kid of the group.

 

This stayed with me, traumatising my childhood and even later. I feel sometimes, the person who left these scars in my life, will he ever feel the remorse for what damage he has done to me, mentally and emotionally. I was not even in that age to understand what was really happening. This experience has left me with fearful notion of never having a girl child, though it is such a blessing to have a daughter; me being one, daddy’s little princess and mommy’s best friend. But I slowly learnt that even boys are not safe. Yet I can never think about my daughter or son going through the same tragedy by known or unknown people. I would never be able to forgive myself if this ever happens to my kids. But now I feel that the monsters will always be around, the only thing is needed is awareness and alert mind.

 

abuse

 

Is it really that difficult to teach a boy how to respect a girl and to treat her well and vice versa? Is this ever going to stop? It’s really breaks my heart to read another news about rape, child molestation and sexual abuse. But thanks to some schools for introducing Stranger Danger teachings; making kids aware of sexual abuse and also to approach their parents in case they have had such experience.

 

With things changes I feel it’s ok to have either a son or a daughter, it doesn’t matter. If it happens to be a son, I want to be that mother who teaches a boy to respect a girl, my mom and my mother-in-law has exceptionally great job with that I can say that. In case I am blessed with a daughter, I want to teach her to fight like girl, don’t give up; stand for yourself and stand for your fellow women.

 

I hope when you read this blog, you will always remember about teaching your kids to respect and also to make them aware of the monsters in this world. I also hope with this blog, it will leave me with a little peace of mind, lighter heart and finally let things go. I know Me Too movement has already initiated lots of strong women and men to come up and speak against the sexual abuse. This movement actually encouraged people all around the globe to speak up. You can share your story or things which can change the society and it’s way and definitely make this world a better place for everyone. Always remember don’t give up girl, just fight like a girl.

How I found love while traveling ­

Posted By : bhavikmajithia/ 332 2

How often do you ? It is rightly said, traveling is for the soul what food is for the body. I was unsure if I really wanted to jump on this journey to Malvan with my husband and his friends until the journey started. This was more than just an experience, at one point I felt like I have opened a Pandora box; chaos, disappointments, clashes but eventually some beautiful experiences and memories too.

Pandora Box

Starting our in the later evening around 10 pm, we reached Karad around early morning at 6 am. It was a very mesmerizing sight for me as I have never had the experience of visiting my own native place.

Golden rays of morning sun filled the fields on either side of the road and not very often you get to see peahens in an open area, not in Mumbai at least. Initially, we did not believe our eyes and thought it would be turkey but yes it was peahens.

We continued our journey through Rajapur ghats, that was a very risky route though but the view was worth it. I would not recommend an amateur driver this route. We halted at Jamsanda katta and misal Pav, I bet you will never find such taste any of Mumbai’s hotels. When you are visiting Malvan, always keep your calendar open for non-vegetarian foods, because you will find all kinds of mouth-watering variety, which you would not like to miss. On reaching our hotel room at Chivla, we had enough time to take an afternoon nap and head out to the beach in the evening. After a short nap, we all dressed for an evening walk at the beach.

Coastal beaches are beautiful and clean too. On reaching the beach, it looked like molten gold in the setting sun. In case you are a water baby, I highly recommend you Malvan, you will find a sense of peaceful mind which I was personally looking for myself. I would also suggest being careful not to venture out after dark.

Having heard stories about black magic and other superstitious stories. On entering the village, we saw a food nicely served on a plate next to a naked doll, under a peepal tree near a pond, that gave me a chill for a second. People usually shut down everything by 7:30 pm. I didn’t feel unsafe but walking on a deserted road doesn’t give you good feelings, at least not for a person like me. The best part was awaiting when we reached our , the Shudh Shakahari Malvani Jevan. As I had already mentioned that please keep your calendar open when visiting Malvan, you would not really like to miss on Fry fish, Fish curry, spicy Chicken curry, Rice Bakri, Kombdi wade, refreshing Sol Kadi and all-time favorite Kharwas.

 

The day that ends with delicious food, I would say it all went well and I found my love, love for beaches and food, the undying one. Following day, we ventured to Vijaydurg, which would follow in my next topic.

Benefits Of Traveling

Posted By : bhavikmajithia/ 323 0

By traveling, we explore the world, we see the beauty of nature and experience the hidden aspects of God’s reality that motivate us. We meet different people, whom they tell us about their customs and traditions, which empower us to know about more and more, different aspects of unique diversities.

You learn many languages and their accents and try to involve more and more, which gives you a unique identity. You learn, how to deal with individuals and notice about their flavors. You taste their foods, by that, you will get to know about their dishes and spices.

People mostly believe that traveling will never get you tired if you are curious to know about nature. It is also a cure for your health, as you keep moving. People always agile, active and out of stress, while traveling.

God’s nature is growing day by day. Your life can not get the charmer of it if you do not travel. People always ready for new adventures and prepare their minds for every sitch. People increase there stamina and make themselves, physically strong, while traveling.

The individual, who is traveling, also a motivator for others because he wants to tell his stories and adventures to those, who want to travel. Some people understand that the place where they are living, have all beauties and charmer of nature, but they are wrong because nature’s beauty cannot be gathered in one place, they should travel to explore the more beauty of nature, as nature’s charmer is endless. Traveling always changes your mind about the individuals and your perception will be much brighter and clear.

Travel – Explore the world with a backpack

Posted By : bhavikmajithia/ 179 0

One common issue many travelers have as they prepare for an exciting trip is over-packing. From too many clothes to bulky electronics, it’s easy to bring way more than you need and that will ultimately slow you down from enjoying the things you really want to do.

Faced with this problem, I started to think about whether or not it would be possible to travel the world with only one backpack and still have everything you need. As I researched space-saving solutions, I soon learned that not only is it possible, but you can pack your bag and still have room for souvenirs.

 

Whether you’re planning to backpack through Europe, a road trip across the country or just want to learn how to pack smarter, the video below highlights minimalist tips you need for your next adventure.

 

Here’s what you need:

 

Backpack

Choose a light pack with plenty of compartments. While you’re at the store looking at options, try different packs on and see which one is the most comfortable. You’re not going to make it far with a cumbersome pack that has a piece of plastic poking you.

 

Clothes

Stick to wrinkle-free garments in neutral colors and only bring the essentials. Layering is your friend and will help you create different outfits daily. Cut down on the volume of clothes you need to bring by packing a wash kit (sink stopper and packets of detergent).

 

Shoes are obviously important but make sure you only bring your most comfortable pairs that can be worn during different activities (hiking, walking, going out and casual).

 

Pro tip: Valuable packing space can be found inside your shoes! Fill them with socks, jewelry, etc.

 

Makeup/Hygiene

If you’re roughing it and don’t have access to a hotel where they provide towels, bring your own but make sure it’s of the quick-dry variety. A quick-drying towel takes up less space and you’ll be able to enjoy your trip more knowing a damp towel isn’t ruining your other possessions.

 

For smaller items, lightweight storage bags are the ideal way to keep everything organized. Use them to pack your toothbrush, dry toiletries–which last for weeks–and sample-size makeup.

 

Water

Bottles of water can be pricey when traveling abroad so you’ll want to bring your own to fill up where you can. Instead of hanging your bottle on the exterior of your bag where it will bounce around and make noise with every step, purchase a collapsible one that can be smooshed down to about an inch tall.

 

Technology

Unless you’re a professional photographer I recommend leaving the bulky, expensive camera at home and use your smart phone with a clip-on lens instead. The latest smartphones are capable of capturing stellar moments and the lens will make them sharper and Instagram-worthy.

 

Planning on bringing your laptop with you on your trip? I wouldn’t for the simple fact your bag will be bouncing around and it could get damaged. Instead, bring a thin tablet that you can tuck between your clothes. You’ll still be able to browse the web and video chat with friends without the worry of damaging your more expensive computer.

 

Ultimate Space Savers

Compression bags and packing cubes will be your best friend when it comes to saving space. Place your clothes one-by-one inside the compression bag and roll it to remove the air once filled. What was once a stack of clothes that would take up valuable real estate is now a much smaller cylinder that can easily be tucked into your backpack.

 

Like the lightweight storage bags, packing cubes help to keep your mid-size items organized. What you want to avoid is having to go on a scavenger hunt to find items. Label your cubes if necessary.

 

Assemble

Place your shoes, compression bags and packing cubes into your backpack and try to roll everything else you might be bringing to save as much space as possible. Now you’re ready for anything.
