What a super-jovial 2 weeks it’s been since ma last blog! East or west, family times are the best! Add in an Anniversary (ahem-10th -thank you :’ ), a baby birth (luv u, sis) and tons of hoppity-hop from one abode to another (add a hospital to that) … whoa !!
Loads of stuff said and written on this already, but words don’t seem enough to describe this amazing marvel of nature. Of creation. Of LIFE. ...the Miracle of Birth.
Of how a bean-shaped nothing turns into something inside a human being..
Of how it grows into a full-fledged miniature version of another human living until it juts out just in time wailing into our world..
Of how understandingly the creator has allowed the mother about 6 months to recuperate ...as the infant remains immobile during such time and lactating being the desirable form of food input until she is fit enough to be able to start weaning options and running after a prancing toddler.
Of how a baby is oblivious of which faith or caste or creed or language or nationality it’s been brought out to and whether a downright poverty or lavish royalty awaits his destined existence ….
And how it slowly starts moulding itself into what it is being moulded to. Gradually imbibing faith, mannerisms, characteristics and learning to co-exist and LIVE.
Oh, you know these philosophical nicks!
This is what we did:
On a lazy Friday morning, we decided to skip our late snuggling in the bed routine and walked upto the nearby park… it was about 8-ish and buzzling with a few benchers, joggers, exercise freaks and casual-newbies-on-a-holiday-morning like us… couple of other kids joined ours and frolicked about fluttering off the birds from here to there..
Want your children to learn about American Civil War and the famous Underground Railroad without having to study-study it with historical facts, memorising dates, etc.? Aha! Here's the apt read:
Harriet Tubman, also called the Female Moses who became a Conductor on the Underground Railroad, was a true messiah to her people considering the circumstances in which she survived and lived till her end to tell her tale inspiring other women.
This small book explains it all through the story of this brave woman who risked it all to save hundreds of fellow slaves escape their miserable lives and how she became an active participant of the CIVIL WAR that followed.
From slavery in America to the era of Abrahim Lincoln - narrated well for kids.

What else do you have at AliyaH'z.in ...
is self-analytical, meticulous and believes in fate... A deep fascination for history often subjects her to time-travel through the realm of her subconscious mind!!
