Three words? Wanna play?

What if you had to describe the crux of your life in three words??

Would you find those three words that did justice to a life that you call ‘yours’??


It was easy to find three words that described the richness of life for me!

I have a list of stuff that makes me happy. And all of the items on the list seem to be connected to these three words.

1. Art!!!

My love for art, is thanks to the depth that it adds to my life. 

I may have not been an avid reader, yet writing has been my saviour: the one that gave me courage when life seemed hollow.

Movies give such an added dimension to life. As if you have travelled the world in the shoes of a stranger. 

Music, plays, paintings or be it any art ! It simply allows us to connect with the creator within. 

2. Family!

If not for my family, I would never have felt grounded to this planet. Perhaps I would be travelling the globe like a nomad who knows nothing of his roots.

My family is my biggest gift 🎁 and every time that I imagine my dreamy life, my family is right there, as if they were an extension of me (n they are)

3. Oneness!!

It’s this deep feeling of oneness that soothed me as I stared at the royal mountains in Auli, or listened to the gurgling sounds of the bhagirathi.. my trip to auli has been the trip that I most frequently go back to in my head n heart..

It’s this same feeling that takes me over when I’m in nature, with flowers or birds…traveling in an unknown country, getting to know the culture of the people there..

It’s like all of us are deeply connected by this beauty of it all..

A letter to my son, for when he is older..

Dear Ekaansh,

It’s so tough yet easy at the same time to be a parent of the most beautiful kid I could’ve ever asked for. I trust and know that I’d be a great parent, especially knowing for sure that you’re going to do beautifully well in your life.

It feels like you’re my teacher n I’m the student,more than me- the mom n you- the toddler.

You’ve taught me n are constantly teaching me, of how beautiful n easy life is! You teach me to marvel at the beauty right around us, n intrigue me with your intrigue about the ordinary yet strikingly awe filled stuff.

You teach me the importance of having a voice, and you advocate to me the crucial aspect of being who one is, irrespective of what the flawed adults have got to think. You’ve made me realize the power of intentions, n words spoken from the heart. 

You’ve taught me to revel in the imperfection, and choose differently. I love the way you paint….the colors flowing out of the picture, and black flowers n colorless strawberries with multi colored seeds. You leave me awe struck with your imagination.

You teach me the art of ‘JOY’ n boy!! we have so much fun together, be it looking out the window, painting or reading, playing with water during bath time or simply being outdoors with you! You’ve taught me to smile more often, you show me how you allow the universe to distract you into looking at what’s more beautiful..n I follow you well!!

I love the way you express yourself, you ask for hugs when you need them. And you say NO when you don’t feel like giving me some!!! I love that about you. 
I love how you don’t respond to people who don’t touch your heart, ( even though I try to seek their approval by asking you to say hi to them, and slowly I’ve stopped seeking it)! And you just don’t apologize for shouting at someone who acts in a mean way to you. I love that.

I love the clarity you have even before you’re 2.5 years!! You definitely are my most beautiful gift in this whole wide BIG world, and please know deep in your heart, that every time I say it to you, I mean it two hundred percent!! I say it more often cuz I mean it every single time.

The reason why being your mom is tough – I have to be super mindful that I don’t ruin it for you. I’ve got to be mindful, when I tell you that life is tough, cuz it’s not tough really!

I’ve got to be extra mindful when I ask you to be super protective, cuz I’m responsible for ingraining into your innocent head that life is difficult n we ‘need’ to protect ourselves.

In short, I’ve got to be Intuned, so as to not funk you out of the ‘knowing’ of who you are! 

The reason it’s easy being your mom – you know it!! You know who you are! You just Won’t let me digress you out of it! You won’t take my word for it! You will know that you know better. 

And I’d love to be your student, quietly observing how beautifully you’re gonna make this world your play ground, like you already have. I’d love to be holding your hand, when in truth you’re the one hand holding me❤️😢

You came after a very long time in my life. Especially when I was almost prepared to live my life without a child. N thank you for making me wait!! That wait, helped me realize how much power my thoughts (all of them were then negative) had on my life.

N only when I stopped thinking, I got myself out of my own way!! 

N YOU, my most beautiful gift stepped in!! 

Please guide me as I intend to guide you along this easy n love filled path called life, where our thoughts make us or break us, our intentions make all the difference and our love for ourselves allows us to love this world with all our heart❤️🎁

Today, you said these very same words to me, when I stopped myself from ‘stopping you to play with your food’ – Thank you Amma! You’re my gift in the whole wide big world 😢

I had tears full of love!!! 

The same love you have for yourself, for me n for everyone else in your world!!

Thank you Ekaansh!

I intend to hold this space for you,(like you hold it for me) n let you make your choices irrespective of how the world chooses to ‘label’ them, n remind you eternally how beautiful n full of love you are!!

N how proud I am of you! Every single moment of my life❤️🎁

Thank you!

Your student,

Amma❤️🎁

PS: all the love n appreciation I get from across the world, the popularity, the purpose of Intuned, all the great work we’re doing n all the places we’re gonna go- it’s all thanks to my lil teacher, YOU❤️🎁
