Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi




This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was no age to go. His death was a huge paradigm shift for me. It altered forever the way I look at things.

Cardiac arrests happen.
It can happen to you, to me--to anybody.

STOP JUDGING. Don't assume you have the right to take anybody's personal life apart, just because their death was untimely, that too of natural causes.

Please say a prayer for her family.
And for her soul.

Nothing more.

  2. Well, if you try to steal away other's husband and make a life, that does not evidently augur well for you as well as we see. Again, on top of that if you also tweak the natural process of aging by hook or by crook, looks like these are not the good qualities. But, now all that is over, we do pray for the peace of her soul. I hope, you take birth in this country again and again.

  5. Amazingly scribbled mam!! Humanity is on the verge of extinction!! And everybody has the right to take thier personal decisions; be it marriage or anything!! It makes us very small, that we even let these kind of thougts enter our nerves!! Sridevi was undoubtely a legend!! Nation will surely miss her!! She has made us the part of true indian cinema!! Cheers to her work and life!
    RIP!!

  6. I agree with you @Preeti Shenoy. There is a difference between human being and being human, and talking/commenting insensitively about someone who is no more is pathetic and a shame to be called as a human. We should learn to see the brighter side of her life, achievements, and the hard work she put to become a role model to many women.
    The bible says "Do not judge, lest you will be judged"
    May her soul rest in peace. It was an untimely death, and shock to scores of people.
    Condolences to the family, friends and admirers.

  10. My mind ceases to think anything further. A beauty. An epitome of acting. Graceful. Living life with family. Enjoying holidays. A last dubai journey. A wedding. Dancing. An uninvited cardiac arrest. A legend gone. So suddenly? How? Why? What will happen to her girls? Why so soon?

  12. As a person, and above all a HUMAN, it is very unbelievable for such a soul to pass away at a young age. But, with her passing away, she has taught us a lesson, which we should not neglect, "ENJOY EVERY MOMENT, FOR YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS IN STORE FOR US IN THE NEAR FUTURE."

  13. Every person is born with a purpose in life. She was a huge star and entertained the audience through her acting and tremendous screen presence.
    As fans we should celebrate her life as an actress.

  14. It is a very sad news that shocked whole of the country. So nobody could shut their mouth and let the soul rest in peace.. but if what they say about her drowning in a bathtub being unconscious due to alchol. That's a unfortunate way to go. I'd pray I would atleast get a swimming pool if I had to drown..

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)
