When I Will Be Gone...

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

I need to tell u this my one 
when I will be gone 

I don’t want to drip 
down your eyes like tears

promise me you’ll rather keep me alive 
in your beautiful smiles

missing me 
you won’t ever cry 

and make me shine
in the twinkle of your eyes 

only my body will be gone 
but in your heart, my heart will beat

you will hear me in the rhythm of your soul
every heartbeat of yours will profess to you my immortal love 

you will feel my fingers 
running down in your hair

 whenever you will be stressed 
 you will feel that I am right there for you with my warm embrace

just close your eyes
and let your heart melt with the memories of our precious times 

those butterfly kisses
those love notes we whispered in each other’s ears

In the air you will breathe
my presence, my fragrance

for ours is not the kind of love 
where life and death have a say..

will wait for you on the other side of the fence 
to be united with you my soul in the next birth๐Ÿ’–

.....And I Remain Your Silhouette Forever And Ever๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–

Happy Birthday Awesome
you are simply the best my one

You already know I love you to the moon and back
But it is actually infinite times of that
You are my bestie, you are my charm lucky
You are undoubtedly to me, God’s secret blessing

for when He accidentally designed a complicated puzzle like me
He has to correct his mistake by sending you on earth with me, as it’s solution worthy

You are my confidence on which I ride high
Thank you for showing all the patience to my weird ways of life

Chalk and cheese are we, but so well adapted to each other’s needs
I am the cream if you are coffee

Separated we don’t exist
Togetherness is our identity  

So today in your birthday I gift you this
A promise of togetherness across ages

May you rise and shine all the more my love
and I remain your silhouette forever and ever..

This New Year I resolve to Gift My Family Something Special

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
I have often wondered why children of current generation are delicate darlings and not rough and tough kids as we were. May be their upbringing by us is at blame for their in general weaker immunity or probably our failure to give them pure unadulterated nourishment so that they grow healthy and strong.

I know every mom will agree with me that we now a days almost perennially fret over where to get unadulterated food items for our family on a regular basis. What guarantee do we have that the Food item embossed with a organic food stamp is genuinely grown without chemical intervention. 

Sometimes I sulk seeing perishable vegetables in my refrigerator lying non rotten even after a fortnight. What preservatives have they been sprayed with? While my mommy taught me to consume most fruits and veggies with their skin on for their nutritive values, for my own kiddo I like to peel off the wax smooth bright ones. Doubting has almost become a habit for me now and I am most often seen perturbed with what the label of a product says and what it actually offers. Mr. husband is so pissed off with my research that he has even contemplated abandoning me at the grocers supermarket until I am satiated with the quality check of the products I purchase. 

Phew! I wish a wasted weekend over the above would ensure I got the genuine supply of month long food essentials and I would most happily do that. To add the the woes are everyday revelations on news channels about food contamination and their negative impact on ours and our loved ones health. The unhealthy accusation game among competitors further leaves the innocent consumer baffled. What and whom to trust? What to eat what not? At least the roti we eat of the three most basic essentials of human beings, roti, kapada and makaan (bread, clothing and housing) should be available to us in the purest unadulterated form as the Hindi idiom goes - Jaan Hai To Jahaan  Hai!

Gone are the days when mom bought grains from farmers, washed them herself, left them to dry and then tucked me along to the chakki to get pure genuine aata for her spouse and children. Today in our fast paced life managing both office and home plus not having the right eye to judge the right grain quality, I can no way rely on the above and have stuck to what my paarkhi mom eventually took to in the later years, the pure and genuine Aashirvaad Atta with multigrains. It indeed is one of the blessings true to its name. I have recently switched over to its all the more nutritious variant Multigrain Atta for I have witnessed my mom adding a lot of other essential grains flour to her wheat flour to enhance its nutritive value several fold and that’s what Aashirvaad atta with multigrain is. A power packed flour of six grains weaving together the goodness of the vitamins, micronutrients and minerals of all of them into one. Also in the current scenario, it’s usage becomes all the more relevant for our picky eater kiddos who need a rich diet to build their health and immunity and this precisely is my near year resolution too for myself and my family to give them a gift of a good health the Aashirvaad way.

 My faith on them is extensively researched  and I am proud of the fact they source their grains from 6500 exclusive centres and their flour passes more than 410 qualitative tests twice a year to serve nothing less than the best on their customer’s plate. I wish there were more authentic food items available like there’s, to relieve our pressure a bit and impart good health to our families forever!

While I vouch for them, I can safely recommend it to all the readers of Truly Yours Roma....this festive season, as you ring the merry bells of Christmas and new year, gift yourself and your family a gift of sound health and perfect nutrition the Aashirvaad Way.

Vision & Roadmap of Twenty Eighteen for TYR

๐Ÿ™‹‍♀️ Hola Precious Peeps, a very warm welcome to all of you on TYR (Truly Yours Roma) in twenty eighteen and I wish a extremely bright, happy and wonderful new year to all of us ๐Ÿ’– yaa I am wishing myself too๐Ÿ˜‰ for I need to be happy to keep all of you happy. Thus happy is gonna be the new Mojo of TYR in the new year, happier  travel tales, happily inspiring true tales and parenting posts, latest fashion and beauty updates, happy and comic fiction etc. etc. to keep your souls elated and satiated๐Ÿ˜Š. I genuinely intent to make TYR a happy virtual space for all of you to come and for few moments shut off from your stressful life, unwind and relax and indulge and make merry.

Well, if you have been wondering from where do I derive the charismatic zeal to transform things for good with a Mida’s touch, it is the best by-product I had been gifted by my second passion - Roma’s Communication Academy(RCA). My students love me to the core and soak my heart in immense joy. I feel like giving them the knowledge of the complete world to the best of my abilities and thus I innovate more fun and fun modules for them. The fact that they perform far better when they are having fun and are immensely happy has motivated me to even make TYR a happier place for my esteemed readers and friends.

Also because going forward I have envisioned integration of TYR with RCA for Roma’s Communication Academy would eventually venture into online grooming as well and the first ones to benefit should undoubtedly be you all. I shall be sharing details of the courses in due course of time as I work day in and day out to customise the modules to suit the online needs so that the best results can be obtained. Once the effectiveness and efficiency goals are set we will roll out the deets. 

On the blog you will see more of me not only sharing anecdotes straight from the heart but also be able to hear and watch me for some exciting and interesting pieces and not only that we will be bringing to you a series where a lot of modern day Indian Women will share their hearts out to you live on our social media channels. You can feel free to ping me anytime if there is something that is bothering you and you wish to be the face of change. I am really really excited about this and want to bring on the plate some real crucial topics.

Last but not the least, since  I am sharing today with you my vision and roadmap for TYR in twenty eighteen, around mid year you can also hold in hand my third book in all probabilities. Though it is really in a very nascent stage, I promise I will try my best. I also plan to have on board a couple of other members on TYR board to multiply the variety of reads for you. 

So these are my plans in a nutshell, looks like I have to work really hard. Please, please wish me luck in being able to fulfil my endeavours and execute fruitfully all that I have planned. This is Truly Your Roma signing off by sending your way bucket loads of love and luck in the new year ๐Ÿ’—

The Last Love Note of 2017

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

My precious ones, I end this year with a heartfelt wish for each one of you from the bottom of my heart ๐Ÿ’“. May the year that comes along, brings much happiness and fun and remain in your heart forever like a song. I had to send this across to you no matter how things are(or probably it is inertia that is making it difficult to write with each passing day) and here I am๐Ÿ˜Š.

After I penned my gratitude post on 1 Dec (Phew! I know that was too early...), I have been coughing my lungs out and am in and out of spells of repeated sickness and boredom of monotony. No this time I will not hide behind the veils of my lethargy for I know what all I miss in these spells when I am out of focus and activity and it is not ok to keep giving excuses. Though a couple of them are too genuine like I have lost my voice to the infection and could not record the very vital anecdotes from my two books for a significant project, I would have at least written when I had worked really hard on the roadmap for the same. My apologies to the dear ones involved and a promise to myself and all of you that I shall be more focused and professional in 2018, my only resolution this new year.

The silver lining of this December was some quiet quality time with family on wedding anniversary and at Panchgani on Christmas which lifted my spirits and brought back chunks of smiling me in bits and pieces. I have been writing to you on the weekend getaway series around Pune and Mumbai and shall surely add the review of Panchgani to the same quite soon. In a nutshell, it is a lovely lush green tiny hill station at a few hours drive from both Mumbai and Pune with a picturesque landscape and worth knowing history(well, will get to it later). But yes, the chilly fresh breeze there with clear bright winter sun rays kissed rainforest did do a lovely job in kicking me out of my self-imposed slumber and has already made me force myself to write to you before the year ends.

Another ritual( now over so many years I can safely call it that) that I fulfil with great devotion and sincerity before I close a year is my annual visit to Shirdi and I am so glad I am going there tomorrow. It is like going to my maayka (mom’s place) once a year where I speak my heart out to my lord for hours seeking his blessings and guidance and wander, yes literally wander aimlessly, in the streets of Shirdi sucking in the serene air. No words can aid me express, how calm I feel there and how my soul shuns all the dilemmas and embraces calmness in the soils of Shirdi...

I either pour my heart out so blatantly to Him or to you on my blog here, which is one of the most significant pieces of my heart and through it with you. No matter how less I write or am able to connect, due to my own weird writer’s instincts, you all will forever remain most precious to me. Closing this post with once again sending your way, the fondest best wishes for a fantabulous new year๐Ÿ’–
