Breast cancer is the most common cancer, diagnosed in females especially in rural areas where there is no awareness about it. India is one such country where the growth rate of breast cancer patients is increasing rapidly in last decade.

Reason being lack of awareness and last stage detection makes it very difficult for the survival and the family member both mentally and financially.

The reason behind writing this post is to get you aware about cancer so that not only you can help yourself but also to the people around you like your maid or any women who didn’t get the source of knowledge about it.

How to know you are ready for a baby

The first question that pops up after you get married is when you are having a baby as if it is the only ultimate mission you have to achieve after marriage.

Bringing a child into your life is a life-changing decision which comes with lots of responsibility along with your freedom, financial condition, family, your partner decision etc.

After our 3 years of marriage we still think of the baby and now we are ready I want to share the things or signs which shows that you are ready for a baby.

Is your partner ready?

Having a baby is not all about mother; father responsibility comes equally for a child. Never think of having a bay to save your relationship it is the worst decision one can take.

Discuss having a baby with your partner is he/she ready to take the responsibility equally, Take time individually to think about the changes that will come in a way after having a baby are you actually comfortable with it or not.

Is he/she will take care of a baby on your behalf and will adjust for your me time too and will be comfortable if you want to hang out with your friends and family alone.

Are you ready to dedicate your life to care for a baby?

Its take a lot of time and energy and to go out of your zone by sacrificing your own needs to grow up a human being. Sacrificing your known needs for someone else benefit should make you happy.

After all the love you give for the upbringing of your child comes with lots of sacrifices.

Your career:

Your decision should not intervene in your career , discuss the HR policies of your workspace about maternity and paternity leaves or if you are good enough to handle both your workspace and home.

If your workspace demand travel makes sure to take help never ever say no to help.

Here your in-laws or if your parents live nearby will give you a great advantage to leave your baby into experienced and trusted hands.

Being nervous is normal:

Taking a life-changing decision will make you nervous in starting and its absolutely normal to be nervous, asking so many questions before taking any step is just a part of your decision making ability.

You are ready to accept yourself:

Being pregnant is not a joke as it comes with so many body-changes .if you are comfortable about the changes that will come in your way being a pregnant, like stretch marks, acne, skin discoloration, weight gain etc. and If you are still absolutely normal about all the aspect that means you are ready to have a baby.


Though it depends on women to women the symptoms of pregnancy.




Unique ways to celebrate Diwali

Diwali is that time of the year when all your family member and friends visit their native place to celebrate this lovely festival of lights, sweet and cracker.

Diwali is the day when each and everyone is eagerly waiting for it, where girls are already excited to select their makeup look, dress, gifts etc whereas, boys are excited to light up their house the best and to get the hands-on best crackers and sweets from the market.

Apart from pollution which each and everyone mocks about it around this time of the year, there are so many things apart from this which has to be taken care of, this Diwali finds unique ways to celebrate for others.

In this post, I will be sharing some of the unique ways you can contribute to the society.

Visit an orphanage or an old age home:

When they are rejected by family each and every visitor becomes their family, especially on this biggest festival where you can share the happiness of being with the family which they miss.

Just don’t visit forsake of it once a year is in touch with them all year round and the feeling you’ll get is priceless.

Plant a tree:

When everyone is talking about controlling pollution and not to fire a cracker. in order to control a bit, you can plant a tree may be the fruit tree so you’ll also get something from it and you’ll feel good about it.

Visit a slum:

As, it is a saying that Holi is for poor and Diwali is for rich, by visiting in the slum you can reverse the saying and can make slum children happy by, celebrating Diwali with them by gifting new clothes and sweets to them.

Sponsor a child:

This is my favorite way to celebrate any occasion; it takes around  10,000 rupees per year to sponsor one child education which you can easily do by tying up with an NGO which supports child education.

If you can spend 10,000 in crackers, gifts and on clothes you can easily sponsor a child every year.

Sponsoring a child for education will not only give her/him their right for education but can also make her/him a better person.


This is my take to celebrate this Diwali in a unique way share yours in the comment box below.
