We Rock!!

Now I have to be prompt and write as frequently as I can :)

Today was hectic day, morning chores, getting my son ready and on time to school, going to the bank, reminding my mom n dad to pick ansh from school, visiting government departments to ensure participation to a training programme we are organising this week, attending a meeting for my media fellowship, going to the state secretariat to meet the labour commissioner, fetching ansh from nani-nanu's house, getting household stuff from the market, getting ansh to do his "exam preparations" and then finally blogging while feeding ansh his dinner!!!!!

all I can say yet again "Hats off to me and all the working women of today's era!!" We Rock ladies :)

and I am back!!!

I cant believe myself!!! Its about to be a year since I visited my blog page, leave alone posting one!

Thinking of the reasons; the only one that comes to my mind is my new job. I joined the Labour Department in July 2011 and wrote m

y last blog a month before. So I guess its no one but my new job that is to be blamed. However I should not be using the word "blame" as I am not complaining but liking the new assignment as much as I loved my last organization. Its just that the new place is demanding and six days a week. The only Sunday left to relax is "reserved" for my little one :)

He is 4 yrs, 4 months old now.

So much has happened ......

I quit my 6 years old job, got to work with the system, recieved a government media fellowship, my best friend is a mommy now :) my son completed 4 years, we applied for his school admissions and then decided on his continuing with the play school, Ansh had a bad year and had been constantly ill, Ranchi city kept growing only in terms of the brands (KFC, Fab India, Satya Paul, W, Subway, etc.) and no infrastruct
ure got developed accordingly,

my grand mother passed away and also some such stars who you thought will always keep entertaining you ( and they still are..) jagjit singh, devanand, shammi kapoor...

Of all this the most enriching and memorable part was getting to interact with children who study at the National Child Labour Project special schools being run by the Labour Departmen
t. The smiling faces of these children always makes me wonder whether I really h
ave any issues in my life! The pain and suffering overcome with the smile and a feeling of being out of the rut (tem
porarily) is overwhelming. These little children though rescued from work know very well the huge responsibilities awaiting them and the struggles ahead in life. Some get their little siblings with them to school as there is noone at home to take care of them.

Work, daily chores, responsibilities, family, my little one .......and life goes on................
and this time i log off with a promise that blogging will go on. :)
