AFTER taking my lunch I just approached my couch to have a nap in the noon. Temperature is going at its heist point these days, so I thought its better to cool me down in AC room. Just than bell rang and I got up to open the door, it was postman with a big grey envelop in his hand. I got it from post man and hurriedly opened it up carefully( may daughter used to get annoyed when any of her postal envelops be opened in haphazard way). It was National Duniya of April 13 with my daughter's story published in it .I read the story it was beautifully written.

Now before y’all schooling me on Haryanavi traditions, I am highly aware that this particular one has lost steam in recent years and placed in the Museum ..but I am hoping for its revival.

the editor of WE emailed me for articles on special issue, so while working on a magazine article I came across these beautiful felted vases by Dutch creative Erica Hogenbirk. She studied fashion design and specialized in knitting techniques. It shows, because the vases, stools and bags look gorgeous. As do the patterns she chooses. They are inspired by nature, tattoos and even maps of churches. The material used is all natural. To see more of her work please visit her website.

The first step is to cut the bottle in half .
Next, you need to make a hole in the cap, you can also use a nail and hammer.
To fill the base with water, it should cut a notch in the side of the base .
The second step is to screw the cap on the top of the bottle, then place up upside down in the base and glue with cello tape.
After this step you can decorate your pot in the way that suits you, with fabric , ribbon , paper , beads ... all depends on your imagination.
Before planting your plant , you must place an absorbent material in the cap , such as batting , rope or paper towels. This will ultimately prevent the soil from flowing into the bottom and also attract water into the top compartment to moisten the earth.
After it only remains to add the soil, and watch your plants grow all! These are the three pots .

This is an older very beautiful song. My father use to utter occasionally especially staring clouds overhead. Wow what memories.
This beautiful song is composed in raag "malgunji" taal roopak.
Today while walking on the jogging track for my morning walk suddenly it got dark due to clouds overhead they were sailing towards the north it seemed they will just shower upon me but they were not. and I continued my brisk walk and got nostalgic remembering my dad for the dark clouds………..

On 15th of April my daughter met Krishna_Sobti at her residence in Malyia Nagar, Delhi she was with her from 11:AM to 3:00 Pm that day they discussed literature at length . Today I read her on Jansatta and felt how great she is.
have a read her article on the link……………
I felt that moment TODAY IN THE MORNING...and it was pure bliss!!!
My walking area
And we paid a premium for the Park in terms of view of its greenery, jogging track, Puja_ , it looks nice and green, and I guess with plenty of mosquitoes. Especially these days
Anyway I shouldn't be complaining, I at least have an area to walk everyday sheltered from the traffic and pollutants. Thank God for the little mercies...and Thank God that I still could walk in the morning and evening.

if they are within hearing of a public prayer, they stop what they are doing and wait reverently until it is over.
|My lovely daughter|
I have conflicting emotions about the experience. On the one hand, I was really glad to be a part of Sangat at a historic Gurudwara. I have always enjoyed Shabad . And I think I’m glad they open it up to the entire world. On the other hand, the whole experience seemed a little sacrilegious. I can’t imagine us opening our Sacrament Meeting to the public like that, not to mention our temple worship.
