Some inspiration

I've always been a follow your heart and live kind of person, especially when it comes to the work I choose to do, my life purpose and how I define myself. 

I've always felt very spiritual about it. That God must have plonked me at a place for a reason. For me to learn, and be of use. When I first walked along the criminal courts, I said a prayer everyday to guide me and to do the right thing. 

Today I came across the founder of Aravind Eyecare and have been moved so much by what he has to say:

Dr. V begins and ends every day at the hospital with a visit to the meditation room for "a silent talk with God". In discussing his work as a spiritual practice, Dr. V has said, "When I go to meditation room at the hospital every morning, I ask God that I be a better tool, a receptacle for the divine force. We can all serve humanity in our normal professional lives by being more generous and less selfish in what we do. You don't have to be a 'religious' person to serve God. You serve God by serving humanity."

Sprong learns drama

I have been trying to teach Sprong the concept of drama. When I get him to tell me a story, it will be more like Once upon a time, there was a boy and he went to the beach. THE END.

Where's the story Sprong? I say. Where's the drama? Especially now that you are going for Speech&Drama in school, Teacher Priscilla has thought you all about running away from scary animal et al. Drama Sprong, Drama!!!

Then, on the way to school this morning, he told me a story. Usually we do Math but today he wanted to tell me a story. And this was his story:

Once upon a time, there lived a lion. A dragon came along and gave out a big, big fire from his mouth. The lion was burnt. It was hot everywhere. The end.

And there you go, little Sprong has learnt drama. And made his momma cackle all the way to school this morning.

Hope yet

There is hope yet. I was pretty depressed when Wispy turned two last week.

Like, there goes my last excuse for post partum fat.

I can no longer say I just had a baby. Baby is 2 year old toddler. Then, I found out that gorgeous Sonam Kapoor was once 90kgs. So there is hope yet.
