Good advice, Bad advice

Hi friends. Happy Karva Chauth to all my North Indian friends! Hopefully the moon came out on time and all of you could break your fast. First of all, I am sorry, I spoke too soon regarding Karishma from BB6. I was sad to learn that her Dad passed away and she had to leave the house. No wonder, she seemed a little disconnected on the show. May she find strength in dealing with her loss. Looking forward to the grand entry of BIG mouth Dolly Bindra, pretty Shweta Tiwari and sexy Mink. "Ab aayega maza". Oh, oh and today is the Badshah's B'day. Wishing SRK a very happy B'day and a lot of success for "Jab tak hai jaan". Also, did you all think that Ash deserved the second highest French Civilian award "Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters" for her contribution to cinema and promoting Indo-French cooperation? What contribution? There were so many more deserving actors like, Tabu, Rani Mukerjee, maybe even Priyanka Chopra (although I don't like her that much). Anyways, with a name like Aishwarya meaning wealth, born as a Scorpio, success is just a formality for her. Song of the day is this intense song from my favorite SRK movie, Veer Zaara.  SRK looks so handsome in this movie. He makes us believe that true love does exit. He makes you want to be in love. Uffffff!
Advice is like opinions. Everyone’s got one. Over years I’ve gotten some good advice and some bad advice, advice I wish I’d taken and advice I wish I’d never heard, advice that made no sense at the time and advice that was like one of Oprah’s light bulb moments.

Best advise to me – The best advice is advice that makes a difference in our lives. Many times the advice we receive, and find useful, even life-changing, is full of words of wisdom that can be of benefit to others as well. The best advice that I received was from my gynaecologist when I was pregnant with my second son. I used to be paranoid that I am going to miscarry my baby. I would call the doctor every second day. One day, when I was in the final trimester of my pregnancy, I remember that I could not fall asleep, as I was sure, my baby's heart beat had stopped and I felt that the baby was not moving. I made an appointment with the doctor the next morning. The patient doctor sat me down and told me "don’t worry about the things that are beyond your control. You are not going to achieve anything". That night I slept like a baby. I went on to deliver a beauty baby boy who is 11 yrs old today. To this day, I try to follow what that doctor told me. That reminds me, I haven't seen him for more than 2 years now. I should make an appointment. For general women's health of course.

Worst advice to me  – Have you ever taken someones advice and it backfired? Well, I have. But it did not exactly backfire, it did not make sense when I tried it. Someone told me, "let babies sleep in the crib and not in between parents right from day one of their birth". I tried it as an experiment with my second born.Yes, even after I went through so much during the pregnancy. What was I thinking? Poor child kept on crying the whole night. My heart was ripping apart everytime I heard his cry, but I did not want to give up as that person had told me that it was normal for a child to behave like that. If I give up now, then he will sleeping with us for a long time. I tried this for 3 days in a row. Did not work for me. Neither he nor I slept well. So, I decided to bring him back between us. And it worked so well. I had the satisfaction of bonding with the baby. We transferred him to his elder brothers bedroom when he was 2 and  to his own when he was 4. All is well that ends well now. There was no need to rush the process, in my opinion.

  1. It's genuinely very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I only use the web for that reason, and obtain the most up-to-date news.
