Personal Note & BV Details#05

My dear parents and reader friends , the series of  blog posts  on being a parent  is all my personal experience. This blog marks the closure to my series of 05 blog posts. It is my growth, transition, discovery. As I penned in my introductory blog, it’s my journey within.  From a 1st time mommy to a person, may be who has become a lot  calmer, a lot  more sorted, a lot more  human, a lot more  content, a lot more grateful, above all a lot more ME!

I write on topics which are close to my heart. I try  to practise what I write, write  what I believe  in.  One of it, is Bala Vihar ( BV).  It’s the need for every child, irrespective  of any religion or community.


Greeting each other with a Hari Om! Jai Jinendra! Sat Sri Akal! Jai Shree Ram! Saying more of any one of these  would not make me less of my community or more of other. Also BV doesn’t  promote or support one particular  deity or any particular religion. The only statement-  is maximum happiness for maximum time, for maximum people!!!


Rather it will strengthen the roots of any religion for that matter become more acceptable towards people of other  community and grow together as a family around the world.


BV is a way to strengthen their roots and keep their heart to family, values, culture and realise  the essence of life.


Also it is absolutely  Free! Free! Free! It just costs your  time and effort to spare 90mins every  sunday mornings ( I understand sundays are lazy days). I see it  as a day to get charged up, it is like time to collect  all the super  powers within. All set to cast a spell on the world with your super power.


I will be lying if I say-  I did not dream of my child performing on stage or coming on television or getting medals or scoring 1st in sports and academics. We all do😁 It’s  just  that I realised (off late)  there is more to life than all this.  


I will  also be lying if don’t  mention that  when I was sick ( recently) all that mattered was how well he spoke to me, how patient and polite he was to me, how well he took care of me ( thoda over hogaya shayad, but it’s  a fact!). As a parent  we must  teach our  children what  actually  matters !


With so much of negativity around  it is important  to nurture positivity in our  child from childhood , as to they become responsible citizens and make not only us proud,  but live humbly proud of all what each one of us is blessed with.
