Really? Think again. Can you be happy only if you are successful? That’s going to be a painful life at least for me if I can be happy only if I am successful! I mean, can anyone ever be happy like that? So you got a raise at work or bagged a promotion and you are happy, but how long is that happiness going to last? Few days, I suppose. Then come new goals, and happiness have to wait till those goals are realised. Now if you are already happy and scored good marks in a test, the result will make you […]

International Blog Delurking Week 2015
Now, I am quite late to post this post. The International Blog Delurking Week started off at the 4th of January and it ends tomorrow. First full week of the New Year is declared as International Blog Delurking Week. How do I know this? I happened to be lurking on Mel’s blog – Stirrup Queens.

Have you disciplined someone else’s kids?
Write Tribe is hosting 7 Days to Rediscovering Your Blogging Groove and today is Day 6. Today we are doing the ask a question post. My question is – Have you disciplined someone else’s kid? I never like to discipline other kids. Because each parent follow a different set of rules with their kids. And I believe it is a parent’s responsibility to discipline their kids.
