The Aftermath of Celebrations
Last week witnessed two of the most important festivals in the world, Ganesh Chathurthi and Eid al Fitr.I hope all my readers and friends had a wonderful Eid and Ganesh Chathurthi. One whole week of celebrations is finally over.Everyone of us have got back to our monotonous way of life, by getting up in the morning, going to the office, coming back in the evening, and sleeping to wake up the next day thinking "When will it be weekend!?"
For most people including me, festivals are not only occasions of family get-together, new clothes,music parties and gifts distribution.They are also a celebration of food. No festivals in the whole world is complete without food.We indulge in grand meals through out the day, eating lots of sweets until our stomach literally bursts.
This time things have gone over the top for one of my friends as she was literally crying when she called me up today morning.She was terrified at the weighing machine for showing 3 kilos more than what she was a week before.I said, don't worry, "hota hai"( it happens )with a smile.
Every problem in the world has a solution and asked her to start doing Yoga again which she had left a week ago and to watch her diet.
For all those who had the same experience, don't worry, lets get started all over again.So lets energize ourselves leaving all those 'happy days'(?!) aside, when we ate lots of food and had no time to exercise.Let us wake up and jump start a whole new life where we concentrate only on staying fit, trim,healthy and happy and making those around us also happy.
