History Repeats

How often have you been complimented when you were a kid?

I know my parents cant remember too many instances of that happening. I have always been the trouble maker for my otherwise loving parents. They are the kinds who ran away got married secretly and then broke the news almost 2 years later. That sure needed balls (pardon my language) but seriously i am talking about the 80's when sporting a short hair cut would ensure you get stares.
PS: Ma had an awesome haircut back then, commonly known to as "boycut"

Given the above background, i think its safe to assume i was never the shy, quiet demure girl in the family. As a kid, i had stitches on my forehead, band aids on both the knees and a toy gun dangling from my shoulder. I was warned by Ma when we were invited for dinner to"Not Touch" anything.So i never did.
I would just go and trouble the pet, pour ice over him, aiming everytime for his ear , by the way i adore dogs but i hate those small toy looking white furry dogs..they can be called anything from Julie , Happy or in this case Pharaoh. Or i would probably slap the silly girl who would expect me to lie down as a patient while she would become the doctor. My tolerance level was always something i ran short on. 

We did a lot dinners and social do's and usually it was outdoors. One of our favorite weekend plans were going on  a drive to the highway and having lunch in the Dhabas on the way. My memory of these lunches are still so much fun, sitting on the Charpoy, butter laden rotis, lots of oily food, and divine lassi.While the children would be made to sleep on those Charpoys, the women would sit aside and gossip while Baba and the others would talk about cricket, football, office rules and Steel making .Since i stayed in Jamshedpur, everything was related to "Ispaat". However, i remember one fine day when i was trying to climb behind one of the huge trucks parked near the Dhaba and calling out to the other boys. The girl i slapped would be happy playing with her fancy tea-set.The boys were encouraged, and so we were three of us now, dangling behind the truck. The next thing we know is the truck stated moving and three of us shouting, the other two in fear and me in fun. I could remember the number of times my parents must have thanked the driver for hearing us and stopping the truck , or the times Ma said sorry to her gossiping friends whose eyebrows couldnt go down at me.

So this morning i saw my daughter with blood on her forehead hands and clothes and i screamed out to G"What happened" and rushed to pick up Keya. G came running behind me and was too shocked to speak anything when he saw me laughing really hard , and so was my  "injured " daughter. My daughter had Maybelline "Coral Red" nailpaint smeared on her forehead and all  over.

History repeats..history repeats

Yes when our kids repeat the same things we realise how much we have troubled our parents.
Agree on that abot " adore dogs but i hate those small toy looking white furry dogs" Its a status symbol to own them I suppose.

This is a common misconception which will be resolved only with firsthand experience.
Once the number of back links will increase, web traffic flow will enhance.

There are so many good blogs out there, and if you're one of those
writers, you definitely know how important it is that your site gets heard through all of the noise.
Identify your niche audience and be an active member on the forums and blogs.
Relevant keywords ought to be used in the alt tags.
Online research is required to determine the packages and SEO Company.
Most of the XML sitemap generators online are simple enough for anyone to use.

It is a sagacious process that has become even tougher with the
continuous changes in the algorithm of the major search engines especially Google.
If your website deals with certain products or services,
then conduct a proper research on these and then
form your SEO content. ' Every page should be optimized with additional keywords. Think wine, and keep the URL intact. For this reason, having mentions from these sites have increasingly become a more valuable asset for your internet marketing. The sooner a site is presented in the search result, or the higher it “ranks”, the more searchers will visit the site. The World Wide Web is an incredible source of customers and potential revenue for all types of businesses and companies in all niches. However with passing time the complexity in this field has increased and performing an SEO task is not a simple thing to do. What is the magic formula.
