Happy one year of blogging

I started blogging a year back just to present my poetry but soon it turned out to be a space for my thoughts.First of all I should thank my lovable husband who values my opinions and equally my sweet Son who cooperated me with his naps, and this google's blogger service, responsible for many virtual friends in our life. I am lucky to have people who encourage me by giving their valuable feedback and suggestions like my Dad, Sister and family friends like Aditya, Deepa and Neeraja and many more friends who dropby.

I learnt a lot from this blogging and could feel the joy of sharing. I want to dedicate this post to all my fellow bloggers. To name you all is my privilege .

Swathi, known as owner of an online community and we became friends soon. I am very much impressed with her blog hence I started one. Brilliant girl, could bring changes everyday with her ideas.

Keerthi, also a virtual friend from the same community is a good friend of mine. I bet anybody who is fed up with daily chores soon gets refreshed if once they step into her zone. She is the best in narration and makes us to feel her like a next door girl.

Hope you had a great Ugadi

Hope you enjoyed Ugadi with all yummy dishes, new attire, going to Temple. Being here that's all we can do on a festival. I wanna share few snaps of dishes I made that day. If you want me to name those, they are Ugadi pachadi, fruits, nuts as nyvedyam and Mango pulihora for lunch, sabhudhaana vada as a Snack, Ravva ladoo as a sweet and we finished our dinner with Drumstick gravy(photo not taken) and some left overs.

The name of this Telugu new year is Virodhi naama(విరొధి నామా) and every year I would love to look at Panchamgam(పంచాంగం) for the four values.

Aadhayam(ఆదాయం), Vyayam(వ్యయం),

Rajapujyam(రాజపుజ్యం), Aavamanam(అవమానం).

For me they are 8,11 3,3 and for my husband they are 2,8,1,7 respectively. So this time it says we both are gonna to be spend thrifts and we should be careful in keeping relationships with others. I just watch them out of my curiosity because I strongly believe that our future is an outcome of our acts, but not because of those written fates. I wish you all great times ahead in your life.

I heard the news that Jr.NTR was met with an accident. I admire his dance and I feel his expressions as his biggest asset that reminds us his Grandpa. Sources say that his speeches on political stage are also a hit but now a days I observe all Telugu newspapers as biased, supporting their own favourite leaders. These fellows are dumping us in confusion where we cant judge the facts and fakes. Finally I wish Jr.NTR, a speedy recovery.

Earth hour 2009

Past from the decades we are polluting our Earth but now let us do our part to avoid resource crisis in future. I want to remind you all about Earth hour 2009 which is on this Saturday March 28 at 8:30 pm.
To be more clear, Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change
I not only advise you to join in this Earth hour but also strongly recommend you to
  • Recycle your goods that we use in daily chores(Recyclable ones).
  • Use less plastic/disposable items.
  • Switch off the electronic equipments when not in use.
  • Plug out the chargers when you are done.
  • Use energy saving lamps.
  • Avoid paper napkins as far as possible(especially in kitchen)

many more you can do if you look keen in your routine.

Finally for this Earth hour I have decided to switch of all lights, Laptops, Television etc in my house and its just as simple as Indian power cut style. To think in other way enjoy your Earth hour in the light of a candle with loved ones .

To Pledge your support to Earth Hour,please sign up here... and join millions of people in more than 1,400 cities and towns in 80 countries throughout the world by turning off your lights for one hour at 8:30pm on Saturday 28 March. So why not you????

Spread this word and contribute your share and save our precious planet. Thanks for letting me know about this event Amu, I am not aware of this until you discussed.

Golden days

The feel of living in an own house is very great. Two days back, I dreamt of our own house where we lived together. Next morning, I was so disturbed as it took me to my sweet past. I was brought up in a joint family where we had loads of fun enjoying every bit of my life. After my Marriage, my Dad and Uncle got separated and our house was sold.

If I look back, now I realise the value of own house where we plan, imagine, monitor every brick of it. Thus we give life to our dreams, love it as a living entity. We tend to be bonded with it. Many praised our house as it has its own beauty. Its a big, modern, spacious, well designed, huge garden in front. Its very hard to digest the fact that it is no more ours......In that great house, I enjoyed a lot with my graduation mates. As it is very near to my college, all of us had had a good time. We celebrated so many functions. They are just memories sweet memories. I can't get those days back.

Poor me!!! I even don't have a snap of our beautiful house to share, hmm this time no search engine can help me out....Yes, there is no answer for some sensitive and precious matters in this world.

Sun..... Please Shine on us

Hurray summer is on its more fluffy jackets, no more gloves, no more heater bills. Last weekend climate is very good here, I could see lots of people enjoying a walk. I kept my door opened for some time and we are surprised at Rithvik's excitement he stood at the door and waved tata tata to passing by cars/people clapped his hands , shouted what not he cried to get inside.

See here the kids' feel very happy when other kid comes to play and they will be eagerly waiting for somebody to take them for outing. They will get bored by seeing same old two faces.
