Delhi will always hold a special significance in my life. As in my first theme revelation post, I had shared that my series will be all around Delhi, I intend to speak up my heart for Saddi Dilli!
More than half a decade and it has presented me with a bouquet of emotions! Be it some commendable, and some noxious, but these experiences have carved out the so-called “Life” for me.
This post, as the name says, it is all about “Yaadein”
“Nagmen Hain Shikve Hain
Kisse Hain Baate Hain
Yaadein Yaad Aati Hain
Baatein Bhool Jaati Hain”
As this capital carves out memory lanes in my heart, here are the ones, which have become most instrumental for me.
1. I got the new tag “Mama” :
What a mixed bag of emotion it was for me! I was rising in my corporate ladder but yet we planned for a baby. Guess, we wanted those cuddles and giggles:). When I saw those 2 pink lines, I cried, and I still dunno, whether they were of happiness or I was teary to think about my corporate job.
Be whatsoever, I became a mama and still continued my corporate job, due to the welcoming support from my CEO and colleagues. That made my life towards Motherhood more than blissful. Those hugs, naughty tooth-less smiles, babblings, tender touch, all welcomed a new “me”. And that new “me”, was a more confident woman, full of emotional heart and a strong mind.
“Nothing better could have ever happened to me”, I’m proud to say that!
2. Life beyond the Corporate world:
Having a family not close brought lots of challenges. Raising a baby, handling a senior role, both demanding my full time, took a severe toll on me. My mind seemed cluttered, I was always at the verge of draining energy. At times, #momguilt took over, other times, my love for my work took over. Seems I was in a state of bewilderment. It was a tough call, but after 3 years of managing both responsibilities, I opted for Blogging and quit the professional world!
My love for writing and social interaction were the main reasons. After a year and a half now, once again, I feel contended with my work. Without a “God-father”, no experience, it was a wonderful battlefield with numerous learnings and socializing opportunities.
It’s just the start, the aim is higher, to bring societal changes (yes at a smaller level).
3. Witnessing an Acid attack:
It was for the first time, I had entered those lanes of Delhi when I witnessed something that broke my heart completely. That beautiful girl, 18years of age, was walking on the same street well ahead of me and a bike rider suddenly threw something on her. I’ll never be able to narrate my feelings, but only that we all rushed to help her. While one called PCR, I called an ambulance immediately. Few people suggested her to be taken to the nearest shop so that the acid clothes could be removed. Shocked, agonized and with tears, within next 15minutes both PCR and Ambulance were there.
That girl braved her fight and she sustained 50% burns on her body. She is there in this world today, working on the awareness on how to help Acid attack victims. The boy who did this is behind the bars, but there could be nothing worse than witnessing a life being ruined!
My life has revolved around these memories some to be cherished and some to be abandoned, and nothing could be better than writing these “Yaadien” here.
Adieu for now, as the next post will be the last post for #BlogchatterA2Z and I’m so excited that I made it through!
