Hi Friends,

Today, I am going to share my views on the question asked above, as the part of Daily Prompt by WordPress.

An year ago, I thought I would finally be able to break free from the confinement of the house. ‘I did travel quite a bit. So, I can say that one of my wishes has been fulfilled. But as Robert Frost says,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before ‘I sleep.

I have just one suggestion. Expectations will lead to broken hearts and disappointment. So, enjoy life as it continues to tease you with problems and also their unexpected solutions. Here’s a glimpse of some expectations vs reality. And believe it or not, it happened to me.


πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. This is true. I too joined a gym to reduce my tummy and rear end. Just six months. I don’t think I lost even half an ounce from the pounds of flesh because I kept attending marriage functions and birthday parties. The delicious food, I consumed, ensured that I still remained chubby. Instead of gym, I lost substantial weight after marriage. Tons of household chores + constant nagging + verbal, physical and emotional abuse= Weight loss. In some cases, the end result may be suicide instead of Weight loss. ( Terms and conditions apply).


This is actually true. Generally, I have observed that humans including me ( hee, hee) expect maximum gains with minimum pains. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I mean to say that some people would love to earn more with minimum efforts. I have seen my own maid complaining about the sheer volume of utensils that she cleans. But expects more salary with minimum clothes and utensils.

I wonder if there’s any tip as to how to look more beautiful with minimum expenditure on makeup. Or how to lose weight without dieting, πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Absolutely correct but there are exceptions too. After a childbirth, some housewives gain the shape of a football ( ‘I surely did). But most of them lose weight after being kicked around relentlessly throughout the day by their children, husband, parents-in-law Or brothers and sisters-in-law. A housewife’s life is no less than a football match where the goalkeeper is in the form of family commitment to prevent the housewife from achieving the goal of her own happiness. By the way, congratulations to Argentina for being the World Champion and of course, heartiest congratulations to Messi too.


πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. This is reverse in my case, πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


This usually happens when I try to copy something from YouTube. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


My normal selfie turns out like the pic shown in reality. Underwater selfie is out of question for me. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Wanted to look like Sridevi Or Madhuri Dixit but look like Manorama Or Tuntun, the famous Hindi Comediennes.

Jagran English.

This is indeed me. This is exactly what happens whenever I try to work from home. Whenever I plan to work on an important project, distractions from the family, prevent me from achieving my aim. But I am my mother’s daughter. I am not going to give up. For a change, let the men in my house learn to compromise. Why should only women make adjustments? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Enough of my ramblings for Monday Blues which is now turning out into a Satirical show. I hope you enjoyed reading them.

  2. Exactly, Akka. Being taken for granted is a bane of being a housewife. Even if ‘we aren’t well, ‘we are expected to pop in Paracetamol and get back to work. ‘I really appreciate all the homemakers for their tremendous efforts to keep their respective families happy. β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️😊😊😊


  3. Yes, the reality is that there remains a wide gap between reality and expectation. An interesting article, Aparna ji πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜Šβ€οΈ
