Why this blog

My mom is a prolific thinker and writer. She has tremendous command over 3 regional languages: Marathi, Hindi and Gujarati. So much so that native speakers of either of these languages can guess her mother tongue, which happens to be Marathi. She has an uncanny knack of writing short poems for occasions. For this there is no specific location, time of day or urge to consume food or beverages. It just flows naturally. She writes for nieces, for friends, for her uncle-aunts and anyone who comes with good news. She writes to motivate people, to thank her husband and to praise her child. This is my way of thanking her, by bringing her art form to people who would like some light reading. Please enjoy and comment. My mom would love it. Thank you for your time and interest. I will try and translate it in english in the hope of justifying her work. Please bear with the translation.
