#LoveJatao to Grandparents By Making Them Feel Special

Having grandparents is a blessing. They not only love us unconditionally but also forget about their own problems and pains when playing with us. But in today’s busy lives we forget this gift of God. We get so much busy with our own lives that grandparents start to feel neglected. Though they don’t show how bad they feel and continue to bless us, pamper us and love us, but in reality, it kills them from inside.

I have a three years’ old son and when I see him playing with his grandparents and the cute smile on both his dada and dadi’s face, I feel great. I can see the child inside them which comes out only when they play with him.

Be it fulfilling his all the wishes or protecting him from my anger, they do everything which at times being a parent I might not be able to do. Not just the grandparents’ day, I strive hard to make every day special for them and one of the ways to do is to praise them every day for loving my son more than me. I know it’s not a big thing but in today’s time when children get so busy in their personal lives, spending time with the family is in itself a big thing.

On this grandparents’ day, I asked my son to touch his grandparents’ feet and seek their blessing. I also asked him to wish them #HappyGrandparentsDay which he did by wishing them Happy Birthday.  As the special day will also be celebrated in his school, l took my son Mokshik’s grandparents to his school to be a part of the celebration. Last year I took Mokshik and his grandfather to the school function. Teachers were welcoming grandparents and clicking photographs with the kids. The smile and that feeling on my father-in-law’s face cannot be defined in words.

#LoveJatao - Mokshik With His Dadu and Nanu
As there are very few opportunities to show our love to our parents and grandparents, I will utilize this opportunity well. To make it a happy grandparent’s day, I will take them out for dinner. I will take my son to the market and get some surprise gifts for his dada and daadi. However, he just wants to get a cake as a gift for his dada dadi and nana nani. The best thing about my little champ is that both his paternal as well as maternal grandparents live nearby.

Though I am happy that my son is so lucky to have such loving and caring grandparents, by the end of this post I seriously started missing my grandparents.

This is how I am planning to make this grandparents’ day special for my son’s grandparents. I look forward to hear from you how would you celebrate Grandparents Day. Do share a selfie with your grandparents on Sept. 10, 2017 on Twitter or Facebook with #LoveJatao & tag @blogadda to win a goodie from Parachute Advansed.

Learning English Gets Easier With Pathshala Funwala

Pathshala Funwala

In today’s highly competitive world where global boundaries are shrinking, there is a requirement of a common language. And that common language is English. Not just for interaction with the people from across the world but English is also important to get success in professional life. In today’s time, it has become a common language, which every student needs to learn to succeed in life.

I studied from a government school where English was taught just as a subject. There was no focus on spoken English due to which I faced problems when I started looking for a job. I was left with no option than looking for a coaching center to work on my spoken English skills. I was lucky enough to get good teachers, who taught English not just as a subject but as a fun activity.

But not everyone is lucky like me. I have seen so many people, who couldn’t clear interviews in MNCs and top companies just because they lacked at English. Despite having good knowledge of their domain, they didn’t get preference in the interviews and all because of average communication skills.

We know the importance of English and want to learn the language as well, but for one of other reason fail to do that. One of the common reasons faced by many people is money. People want to learn English but fail to get admission in top institutions due to their high fees. Sometimes it is also the lack of resources available in some areas.

Undoubtedly India is growing at a fast pace and there is a lot of technological advancement like easy access to computers, the internet etc. But still, there are some regions where students don’t have access to resources to learn English. Now there is someone who instead of just talking about the problem has come up with the solution to it.

Pathshala Funwala

Nihar Shanti Amla has started an initiative ‘Pathshala Funwala’ to help students learn English in a different way. Nihar Shanti Amla has started a toll-free number 8055667788 under its 'Pathshala Funwala' initiative where interested people can learn English by just calling at the given number. This is a great learning method for those having the shortage of money for full-fledged courses. The best part is that you won't even be charged for making a call as the brand has launched a toll-free number. All you need is to dial the number and learn English in a fun way.

If your friends or family members are also looking for right place to learn English, do tell them about Nihar Shanti Amla's toll-free number 8055667788.

I am definitely going to tell all my friends and known people who want to learn English or are looking for English learning resources for their kids.

I am blogging about Pathshala Funwala by Nihar Shanti Amla Oil in association with BlogAdda.

It Is Not Your Job, It’s You: The Real Reasons You Are Unhappy At Work

At one point or the other, you must have felt bored at the job. The excitement for work seems to have lost somewhere. No matter how perfect the job is or how great the boss is, you feel discontent and always think of looking for another option.  

But you will be shocked to know that every time it is not your job that’s the problem; rather, it’s you. Though it is easy to blame the situations outside for dissatisfaction at the job, but sometimes the problem lies within you. In such a situation, only an honest introspection can help you know why you feel unhappy at work and how to make your job interesting.

Once you accept that it’s not your job, it’s you that’s making you unhappy at work half the problems will be solved. Here are a few signs to prove that it’s you making things difficult for yourself.

You are too sensitive

Bosses are always there to give their suggestion and correct your errors. Now switching the job every now and then while calling bosses too rude is actually your problem, not boss’s. Instead of taking criticism too personally, you should try changing your mindset.

You don’t interact with people

Do you always feel that you are always assigned different tasks from co-workers? This will continue to happen until you directly approach your boss and discuss the things clearly. Ask your boss why you are always given A, B and C tasks when other members in the team get X, Y and Z tasks.

Speaking about the problem is better than blaming others and hampering your work.

You don’t accept mistakes

No one is perfect in this world. Every one of us makes mistakes, which we all need to accept. You won’t be able to correct yourself until you accept your fault. So instead of being defensive, think about solving the problem. Soon you will find yourself doing great at the job.

You don’t give time to the things to happen

 In an organization with a different department and a hierarchy for every task, it takes some time to implement even a simple idea. But you want your unique idea to be implemented overnight and if it doesn’t happen you feel demotivated at the job.

Instead of feeling bad, you should be happy that at least your views were given a chance. Think about the organization where employees don’t even get an opportunity to present their ideas.

No matter what, you should never blame your job for your unhappiness until you properly analyze the situation. When it comes to career and growth, you shouldn’t just look at one aspect. Take ownership of things and find the real reason behind your displeasure at work.
