SOME OF MY ACHIEVEMENTS SO FAR!

All of us (Well, most of us) strive to do well in whatever we do in our lives. I think I am also one of them. Even if I may not be consciously and evidently putting in a lot of effort in the task in hand, subconsciously I am doing my best! Here’s proof!

  1. I was part of my school annual shows each year, be it dancing or group choir or part of drama, I was on stage! (unlike today , back then there were a minimum 35 to 42 children in each class, so not everyone was on stage !

    And the dance drama continues till date!

  2. Post B.A , I was confused between pursuing HRM and B.Ed. So I did both! I would attend the B.Ed classes from morning to evening and from evening to night I was at the Post Graduate Human Resource Management classes. Not only did I survive all the tedious projects both courses demanded, I scored the highest marks in practise teaching in my B.Ed batch at ST. Xavier’s and stood 2ND RANK  in my PGDHRM course 😀

    RECEIVING THE AWARD FOR HIGHEST MARKS IN B.ED (ST.XAVIER’s batch 2008-2009) from DR INDU SHAHANI- SHERIFF OF MUMBAI

  3. I won the BABBER SHER contest held by Radio City, Mumbai in the year 2010. I was called to their radio station after I won many levels of creative one liners from entries all over Mumbai and beat the other finalist on live radio becoming the BABBER SHERNI! So I proved that SHERNIS are as good as SHERS 🙂
  4. I won an all India slogan writing contest held by Pepsi .( Maybe I should have been a copywriter in life?)                                                                                                              My slogan was chosen the best from amongst lakhs of entries. I was most excited about meeting Ranbir Kapoor than anything else! I appeared on IPL EXTRA INNINGS TV show with Ranbir Kapoor and Gaurav Kapur.307758_2435535364462_1210885380_n296759_2435120794098_1265967676_n (1)293696_2435538204533_681211177_n
  5. I left my job as a teacher at a reputed South Mumbai School because they didn’t give me a 10 day leave to prepare for my M.A in English Literature Exam. Not only did I pass with flying colours but I also helped a friend clear these exams by helping her with my notes and explanation when English was her least favourite subject!
  6. I believe I made a difference in the life of  thousands of little souls during my teaching  stint of around 7 years. There is no love as pure as that of children and I am grateful I received so much of it!55581_1594085728747_425988_o10844889_472493519558206_1301470032_o
  7. I gained over 25 kgs during pregnancy and knocked the post delivery 17 kgs over a period of 2 years! Full post on this some day.
  8. I managed to complete this post with a toddler at home! Phew!

Apart from this of course, there are many important satisfying roles that we play in our daily lives that give us immense pleasure and a sense of achievement with the results our efforts yield. What would you put as your top achievements in life? Do share!

MAMA EARTH – ORGANIC BAMBOO BASED WIPES- Review

20171116_175709If you have been reading my posts you should have a fairly good idea that I am very particular about what goes into my skin so you can well imagine the care I take of my baby’s skin.

MAMA EARTH heard me I guess and they have introduced India’s first ORGANIC BAMBOO BASED WIPES. I am simply elated!

Price: Rs 249 for a pack of 72 wipes.
