Worth the Fight

Standard

We fight, fight and fight
We fight against our fears
We fight against our tears
We fight against our scars
We fight against our dears
We fight against our failures
We fight against our imperfections
We fight against ourselves
We get tired of fighting
On the verge of losing our fighting spirit
We start fighting aggressively, and it is worth it.

Semolina(rava)-potato vada to beat the monsoon cravings.

Standard

As a Malayali, I long for monsoons than summers. It is that unpopular season among kids, the back to school time. It brings in magic, creativity, and nostalgia to our lives. Right now, we are witnessing the visits of Monsoon Gods.
The sweet smell of rain and the soil makes the air so dramatic. Water, bright greenery, colorful umbrellas, local fishermen are the everyday scenes during monsoons.

When it rains, desires hit us hard. A cup of hot tea and a plate of crunchies is a must-have on a rainy day.

I am sharing an easy snack recipe here.

Rava (semolina)- 1 /2cup

Boiled potato(mashed) – 1(big)

Cumin powder – a pinch

Salt – for taste

Crushed garlic – 2or 3 cloves

Ginger paste – 1tsp

Crushed green chillies – 2

Onion- 1 small

Oil – to fry

Turmeric powder – a pinch

Mix all the ingredients and sprinkle some water on to it to make it damp.

Don’t add too much water, just a sprinkle to hold all the ingredients.

It should be coarse and thick but slightly loose than chapathi dough because you have to put holes in the center.

Take lemon size balls from the mix and place it on your palm and slightly flatten it and then dig in hole on the center.

Freeze it for 20-30 mins

Heat oil and fry the freezed vadas in the oil . Fry until it turns golden color.

Try it with hot tea or coffee .

While I was savouring these crunchy munchies all I could hear was the beat boxing of raindrops against my roof.

P.S. I never thought I could make doughnut shape . So I didn’t thought of clicking pics while mixing the batter . All I could do was click the piping hot vadas.

When I wanted to tell you stories in few words- part 2

Standard

My favourite routine for the past few days, writing stories in a few words. I don’t know how to categorize them. I don’t know whether they are poems, quotes or what not🙄.

Some of them are inspired , someof them are my own thoughts. I have already shared a few before in a post, check it out here.

And the fun is , people like it too. I have been posting them in my Instagram handle for the past few days and a lot of people reached out and appreciated my nano tales.

Instagram is a necessity to each and every one of budding writers with its hashtags, thousand followers and instant stories.

I always wanted to be a writer, so i thought of writing daily and i find this will work out. And i like it because , i don’t have to think of word count and research a lot, just write from my heart.

And i find it working, everyday i get a few followers,new likes and messages from other fellow writers and my favourite part is some of them even want to feature my works on their instagram handles.

P.S . Follow me if you like them. I will sharing more in few days.

A letter to my rock-bottom

Standard

Dear rock-bottom,

You have been taunting me for the past few years. You are using all your dirty tricks upon me. You hit me in my face and you pull apart my life like no one ever did. You just wanted to broke me financially,mentally, spiritually and socially. You hit me hard in all of my weakest places. You gripped your vices on me , you tried to take away my happiness, my dreams and my hopes.

I know why you are so merciless to everyone. Because people curse you, hate you and they wanted to drive you away. So you taunt them more, you just want to break everyone ,hit them hard.

Somehow , you broke me technically,but not completely. You know why?

Because I choose to embrace you,no matter how vicious you are I still like you🤗. And I accepted my rock bottom as the blank slate where I sketched my life.

When I fell down into the waiting arms of my rock-bottom it strangled me with all its mightiness. I didn’t know how to come out of it, I was stuck in that eerie glowiness.

Then I realized that I am at the crossroads,either I can choose to huddle in this rock-bottom or choose to hustle .And I choose the later one, hustle , like a toddler taking her first steps.

The first question I asked myself was ” Why me?”
Now , I know the answer. It is ” because I am stronger.

I started to surround myself with happiness, the little things that made me happy. They are:-

I indulged in improving my skills.

I started writing regularly.

I started to read a lot.

I did diy, crafts, arts and doodling.

I did all small things I can do.

My rock bottom taught me:-

how to be patient.

how to be nice to others

It keeps me grounded.

It made me believe in myself, when no one ever did.

I taught me, the only person who can ever help you is yourself

It taught me that,” Everything I did matters.

We fought over relentlessly, when she tried to drown me I tried to rise up.

It taught me “there are no shortcuts, it’s a long road”.

Nourishing and detoxing mask for curly hair

Standard

Hello, myself a curly hair girl here. If you are also blessed with curly hair , you know how difficult it is to maintain curly hair.And if your locks are frizzy,close your eyes and say a silent prayer.

Years of attacking my locks with combs, harsh shampoos and curses only added fierceness to my frizzy hair. And then I hide them I braids, buns and ponytails and waited for miracles( turning my curls to straight).

Now, I know things won’t work as I wish or prayed. So I started to embrace my curls as it is. I love it, nurture it and take care of it as much as I can.

Then I started using homemade masks to replenish and hydrate my locks. Inorder to remove frizziness you have to replenish,rejenuate and moisturize them.

So I am going to share one of them with you now.

Hibiscus – Aloe vera mask

Red Hibiscus – 12

( if you don’t have fresh hibiscus , you can use dried hibiscus or hibiscus powder or any other readymade hibiscus alternatives)

Aloe vera- 1 large stem

( you can use gel also)

Milk – 2-3 spoons

Oil – 2 tbsp

( you can use coconut oil/ olive oil)

( I used homemade herbal oil-my mother’s recipe made with coconut oil and herbs)

Blend hibiscus,milk and aloe in a blender.

Use a strainer or a soft cloth to filter to extract the juice from the paste.

Mix oil with the extracted juice and heat it for 2-3 minutes.

When the mixture turns lukewarm , massage it into your scalp .

Keep it in your hair for about 60 minutes.

You can either wash it in water or you if you want to shampoo or condition try to use a mild shampoo.

You are done. Allow it to air dry after washing. You will find the difference , the frizziness is gone , you feel your hair strands turned silky. The curls will look more defined without styling and the dullness is gone.

Teach your curls,how to be naughty and messy, grow them naturally😍.

When I wanted to tell you stories in few words- part 1

Standard

This is my favourite routine for the past few days , telling stories to people in a few words.

You don’t have to keep an eye on the word count, you don’t have to research a lot for the post. Just write your heart away.

And the fun is , people like it too. I have been posting them in my Instagram handle for the past few days and a lot of people reached out and appreciated my nano tales.

In a world of hashtags,vlogs and calligraphy , a fewer people find time to read blogs. And you sit here wondering , why I don’t have much readers, where does all the likes go, And I don’t even get comments for some of my posts. Do you know how does it affect budding writers like us.

I am sharing some of them here. I can’t say whether they are poems or quotes or stories , it can be anything.

Andd I like it too,because it’s a matter of few minutes to write it out and it is fun to write.

P.S.. I love it for the likes I get in my Instagram handle.
