Mother T

I was watching this hindi movie the other day,name of which I dont recall at the moment.In the movie,one of the characters who is a good doer is called Mother T by her friends."Mother T" as In "Mother Teresa".Just now I went through my friend's blog again,then I remembered and was inspired to blog about it.

I completed my graduation In an all women's college.I think it was in my second year,when our principal made an announcement over the intercom that Mother Teresa would make an apperance in our college.At first thought I was like why would she want to come here...but then it created such a stir all over the campus.I couldnt believe my ears.I was so determined to catch a glimpse of her.Though I had heard stories about her and her work and to think I would have an encounter or even stand in the shadow of her presence was completely mindboggling for me.

College hours were up if Im not mistaken...But as the entire campus started packing up ,I started getting tense.Squashing yourself,squeezing yourself,hopping like bunny hoping to catch a glimpse,pushing and shoving everyone around you......It was a strenuous exercise alright but ultimately.....

A car pulled over and then it was like all hell broke loose.I saw the top of her sari that she covered her head with... and I started jumping around with all my might and strength...shouting ay aye...hey...finally I got to the frontlines.

I was a little surprised when I saw her face.the first thing that came into my mind was...,"Hey ! She looks like my grandma."She was an old woman,a little bent,covered with wrinkles all over.You could immediately see that that face had seen so much pain,gained so much wisdom...they were wrinkles of hard work,selflessness and love.

She did  have an aura around her.You could see that she wasnt just anyone ...but you knew you were in the presence of a strong woman,in the presence of blossoming love and peace.She was like the white dove I think.I was honoured to see her face and then it happened.Out of nowhere,she laid her hand on my head and blessed me.

A certain calmness and peace came over me.Its like when you are deeply troubled,someone you love so much,comes along and hugs you and you feel "all is well".I wanted to cry...but when there are girls with blood androgens  running high...its becomes quite painful to stand at a spot and shed a decent tear.

It was a privilege and honour to be in her presence.And I count myself very lucky and blessed.May your soul rest In peace Mother Teresa and Shower us with your blessings.

I think she is the only worthy celebrity status woman I have ever come around.Oh yeah...I did meet Dharmendra,in the 80's, at Mumbai International Airport.

But I have come across a handful of people who made both a positive and a negative impact on my life.I owe them both.The positive ones brought me self esteem,peace of mind and a love for myself.The negative ones taught me to be the bitch,to be strong,to not be blindly trustworthy of everyone,gave me a heartache and destroyed parts of me that may never recover.But Faith in God and lessons from those positive people have made me stronger yet forgiving,a smart ass and a mushy bear.Maintaining the right balance is what I've learnt.

  1. I am stunned Suzz..This episode is totally off my memory somehow..Must have missed those classes in college.Anyway ,I was more of an "OUTSTANDING" student.Most of the time standing out of the college that is...And I surely feel bad now that I missed it.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

Camel

You must be wondering what the heck has she written about urine.Is it one the tests she had taken or some disease.

Actually yesterday some friend of my husband told him that eating camel meat stew is beneficial for people with muscle and bone problems and that very soon he would make me feast on it.I personally love camel meat,its tastier,lighter than beef,its just a beautiful meat but its a little more time to cook than the normal meat.So I thought why not find out the benefits of camel meat and while doing so,came across this article about camel urine benefits.

Don't go yuck people,I think in India,people bathe in cow urine when they have some skin infection.My brother and I did this as very small kids.We had been on a holiday to India and developed some skin eczema or chicken pox or measles....so as usual my granny said try this as well when the western medications failed.I know camel meat may not be available in India as commonly as out here but there is nothing wrong in know…
