Heat wave.....

This heat wave is killing. And in this scorching, skin burning heat, when you have to leave all the comforts of your house and your lovely car then only you would realise what is it all about. This is the exact thing happening with me when I have to come to BHU for the research work. On top of that, have to roam around on a Rickshaw at 2 in the noon, when it feels like the sun is slapping you blatantly on yur face for living in so much comfort and not realising the plight of the poor daily wage labourers, rickshaw pullers, traffic police and etc etc....But then nature has its own way of showing the reality!

Super Achiever

She comes exactly bang on time! Hardly takes a leave but when she takes it is for some very obvious reasons. Her Human resource management is perfect to the T. She may bring along some additional hands if the work pressure is difficult to handle. Moreover, her work is quite up to the mark, doesn't waste her time in dilly-dallying. Starts her work at 6:30 in the morning which means she starts her day at 5 and finishes her chores by 4 in the evening. Whats more, she manages her job and home perfectly well. She is unaffected by recession the way we mere mortals seem to be affected.
For me, she is a real super achiever! And my dear friends, she is none other than my maid. As they say, it is easier to get God these days but to get a good, time abiding, punctual maid is an uphill task. And I am so lucky to have one. Apart from her work, her qualities and efficiency in managing things impress me the most. Taking care of her three growing up kind (two of them are daughters in their teens, living and coping with an illiterate, good for nothing husband, her priority in life is to get her children educated and well settled.
I pray that all her wishes get fulfilled in life!

They say, a smile is worth a thousand words! A beautiful smile can take away all the pains and show a ray of hope to the desperate soul. The purpose of April Fool's day is to bring smile into our face that seems to have long gone from our lives. Living in a concrete jugle for a long time, our faces have hardened and we have fake smile plastered all over our face. Opening TV sets in the evening and watching all those mindless, 3rd grade jokes have stopped us completely from understanding the real pleasures of life. I am sure, Archna Pooran Singh, Siddhu or for that matter Rahul Mahajan's laugh (although I don't consider it a laugh) repulses you more than bringing a smile to the face. It is all senseless, rubbish garbage that is being laden on us evening after evening. On this auspicious day, I am searching for that soulful, carefree, pleasing smile on everybody's face......
Is it too much to ask for?
