10553523_671858739565579_5392128026450523634_n I know this is early for this List… Too…actually Way too early… But i want to put this somewhere before Alzheimers hit me/ i become an obsessed mother/ the ghost of Right Parenting Haunts me… In short this is something i would love my daughter to Know, hopefully remember and Follow…

  1. NEVER- ever Indulge or get involved in anything dat is ethically, legally or morally wrong. We dont want to hide from the Law or in that case Ourselves for the rest of our Life… You don’t wanna feel ashamed of what you see in the mirror, do you???

  2. VASELINE PETROLEUM JELLY- Its a multitasking product. Right from chapped Lips to Pain in the @$$ shoebites… it covers up a lot… Ask Mr. Google!!!

  3. Keep Safety pins handy, atleast half a dozen. they come for rescue in emergencies…

  4. Speaking of emergencies- Keep a stash of band aids for you handy… They are little relievers… easily available…

  5. Also speaking of Rescue-Keep yourself active in learning some kind of martial arts for self defense. That is a Must! You should be your own Guard…

  6. They will tell you- You look fat! You are so thin… Or you look healthy-ish… or you are fluffy… Or you are a Flatron/Carrom board!!! I have been at the receiving ends of both… Believe me- they will Invent words for you… Don’t Let that touch you- Compliments and criticism will always come your way- Accept the good, dont let it get in your head… as for the criticism; again take the good, leave out all the rest…

7.READ… Read a lot! Read more often… Believe me… all that hidden knowledge will be yours… So explore those pages… And if you hate reading(cringe cringe) then just read a line, a word. But Read…

8.BE AWAY! Go places, See people- TRAVEL… Be a world citizen…

9. PRAY- Even if you are an atheist… or you are just too lazy or don’t know what to pray for- Its alright, kid. Pray for others, your friends, your family, Your watchman, that old man you saw on the road or that Kid in the Train… But do pray… atleast twice a day with all your heart and soul…

  1. LIVE YOUR DREAMS… Its not easy.You’ll have to fight- worse part- with the people closest to you… Maybe even Me… But dont let anyone tell you that you cant do it… You will have to prove that you can, at every point. Don’t let go of your dreams…

  2. Learn a quick and easy make up… a quick and simple hair style… and always keep an elegant and classically sexy attire handy… for a last moment outing… Also be the Owner of atleast one SEXY KILLER HEELS… Nothing boosts confidence like height in those HEELS… Plus they are also a LETHAL weapon, if used appropriately…

  3. Start saving up for your Retirement right from First Salary…

  4. Spend as much time as possible with your Grandparents. they are the first adult friends you’ll have Coz they are really Kids at heart. And they have an oceanfull of wisdom. So spend as much time as you can,ok? REMEMBER… They will also be the first people you will lose… So Learn a lot from them…

  5. Speaking of Kids…Don’t let go of the child in you. She is the reason that will make you feel alive… Every moment. There would be others who would say otherwise, trust me, Be the child…

  6. Drink lots of H2O… I know, I know… its always advertised universally. but its true… H2O is amazing. Get yourself drunk on it!!!

  7. Dance… Even if you Suck at it…(Hope not). But dance… its Happiness… Perfect union of body, mind and soul…

  8. Grow Plants… Wherever possible…

  9. Make your career out of something you Love… It will never feel like work. Even if it pays less… AS long as you are blissfully happy… Doesnt matter…

  10. Your problems are not that big… Don’t give them much importance. Its okay if you cant solve them just let them be… things usually fall in place… on their own…

  11. Dont do anything permanent for anything temporary… Know the difference…

  12. Confused about something… Ask the kid in your family. Simplify your worries- ask them. You’ll be amazed at their replies… Even Old Man Einstein said that he relearned simple maths from kids. We adults are so deep in solving up equations, cracking up codes, looking up derivatives… that we forget 2+2=4 not 5 and1+1=2 not 11… Go ask that Kid, kiddo…

  13. Spend time with your parents… Remember they too are not forever… You know where to find us!!!

  14. In life- Have atleast one true friend… that will help you to get away with anything including murder. Who will probably almost kill you for the crime committed… but still be your Alibi… Remember point 1. though… Friends are forever…

  15. Between Money and people… always choose People. Money won’t cry for you… or help you when you need advice. we need others. Always.

  16. Cook. Learn to prepare your own food… you should know atleast the basic ways of cooking… an edible meal to kill hunger… No need to be Nigella Lawson or Kylie Kwong…

  17. Respect others, dont judge. Do not indulge in gossip… especially about people you dont know anything about… someones downfall… should never be the reason for your happiness… Do not rejoice for someones bad times… Also, what others think of you is none of your business… to each, its own…

  18. Always part with good words… No matter who they are… No matter what you are feeling…Coz you never know… it can be the last time you are meeting/seeing/talking to each other…

28.All those cliches… “nothing lasts forever”, “what goes around comes around”,”time heals all wounds”,etc,etc… are absolutely true… JUST AN FYI…

  1. Smile… Smile for others… Smile from inside… Most importantly… it will never go out of style…

  2. One day… you’ll fall in Love with someone. And that person will Love you back… Equally… You will find someone worth dying for… when you find that someone… It doesnt matter whether that person is a HE or a SHe… they are Indian or aliens… No matter what their Age, gender, color, caste, creed, nationality is…. if you know they are the one you wanna spend the rest of your life with. then. do it… But again… it won’t be easy… Life never came with a bow tied… it never will… you will have to fight. Even with Me… But remember this, WE are not forever… So make sure… that at the days end… the person next to you… is whom you really wanted to be with… \

Stay blessed… Stay happy…

Love…

Mother…
