Happy Birthday Sanju

Happy birthday Sanju
The most important thing in a journey towards any destination is to take that "First Baby Step". Today I am an Author and it’s because of your birth. It was a moment of inspiration to share and it drove to write my first post...

All your first's are treasurable and enlivening moments. Right from your first cry which became the ringtone of entire family members -to-till-date-Each and every second around you has always been special and memorable (The first time I wrapped you around my arms, your first smile and my naughty acts in a sing-song pitch pattern to make you giggle...Your smile in your sleep....Your first roll over - Hah, You actually took little time in rolling over and I helped (or tortured!?) by pushing over to the side.. Your first tummy walk, first baby step) These are only few ...

Sanju..Your smile, tiny hand and leg movements make us go crazy...We used to long for your sweetie smile and raspberries blow..

And your first vaccination? I just ran out of doctor's room not being able to see the needle pricking your tiny hand... Your first tonsure?! You were very cool as MS Dhoni and did not cry. We managed by offering zandu balm and you got engrossed. But second time!? your little eyes sensed the knife and you cried like hell :(

Your mom was so strong and never shed tears. But when you got fever the first time, she called us  and burst out into tears. You have such an impact...

Sanju you are a teacher too, 
You want us to entertain by putting the similar steps of "Vazha Meenu" song and we did not have courage to reject Sanju kutty wish. Outcome@!?, Your Thatta and patti used to imitate the steps of Gana Ulaganathan and thereby becoming a great dancers.  

Singing lullaby to make you sleep and indeed we had a theme song for you and that’s Sutum Vizhi. Sleeping on the cradle you hum with us and when we stop singing thinking you doze off, your voice goes to  peak commanding us to sing non-stop.

Acting unwise in front of you and listening to your brilliant answers… pretending as if I don’t know Alphabets and numerics and learning it from you...losing to you in running and cricket made me realize that evan a loss can be sweeter if the winner is a child..

When I lost the gold ring on the beach and you, one of your slipper to the waves, myself and Ramya Akka decided not to inform parents about the loss of ring. But as soon as your dad stepped in, you felt sorry for losing the slipper and when your dad had forgiven you, you jumped with overjoy and said, “appa, i had only lost one slipper of a pair,chiti had lost the only ring she had” and embarrassed in front of everyone. That was innocence at its sweetest best.

And now, you play "Logo Quiz - Cars" game and approach me for guessing the car company name.   Googling all car logos and saving it to my gallery, I show-off as if “Chiti knows everything”. But for one logo, the answer was not available with the picture I had and while acting as if I was recollecting, you gave a shock by saying, “Chiti search in gooogle like earlier”.  Yeah, how did I forget that you are growing up...You care for your mom now, when she takes vomit and suggest her to eat horse gram Rasam….

Sanju, you are our love and light of our showed me, where true happiness can be found and it comes from a child.. 

"Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year. The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again."~Menachem M Schneerson

Love you Always :)

For a Happy and Joyful Life

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go." 
                                                                                      - Oscar Wilde 
On reading the above quote from my friends what’s app status, two people popped up on my mind. Person 1 - who cause happiness wherever they go and Person2 - who cause happiness whenever they go away! No one loves to talk about the Person 2, neither I. But need to mention about Person1. A person, who always carries a big smile not only in his lips, but in his eyes, cheeks and in his walk. One could actually sense a positive vibration whenever he comes.  I always see him very happy and smiling.
My curiosity did not let me stop from asking him, "I just wanted to ask you. How you are always happy?”
"Will tell. But you have to pay session fees" he replied with a big smile.
“If happiness is brought and learnt from coaching lessons, then everyone would afford for it.” I thought and agreed to pay the session fees and the fee was a free coffee from my office cafeteria.
“We will talk in detail but one important thing, you have to do what I say” he said as he pressed the Espresso button on the coffee machine
 We sat on a chair and sipping his tea he said, “First thing. There is no such happy thing or magic that you need to do to be happy. It’s just realization and truly speaking you are one of the person in our office who is full of energy”
He continued, “We never allow anyone to do good or bad without ourselves. Whatever you think you will become and god/Universe will offer you that. If you think, you are suffering; you will find all this in your life. If you start appreciating what you have and you find all this in your life. Always be grateful for what you have. If you can’t enjoy this world, then you are doing bad to yourself. Never waste tears for anything + anyone. You born alone and will die alone. People in today’s world have nothing, still they are living. They try to learn many things in life, meet new people. There is no magic in this world and no one is special. It’s what we do decide our present and future. No one can change past. You can live crying or you can life with a smile happily. You can die crying or you can die smiling. Choice is yours.
And Start helping people. Help as many as people you can. In all possible ways, not just by giving money. Buy happiness for them. life will buy happiness for you. And there you will start to live life then everything will start to change.  Buy food for old. Give clothes to them. Spend some time with poor kids and look at their face.
Your wish your life!!
Always listen to inner voice! Break the rules!! And be the change!!!
