Hi, I am Farida. I have survived 3rd stage infiltrating breast cancer for more than 2 decades now. I was diagnosed when I was breast feeding my 11 month old baby girl whose diagnosis of being with Brain Atrophy had left me stunned just 9 months prior to my diagnosis.

The Beautiful Moment My Son Appreciated Me For Being His Mom

One thing I have been highly successful at – Parenting! It has been an amazing experience for me to watch my children travel their journey of life and reach adulthood successfully. There have been tons of those moments when my son has appreciated me for being his mom. I know that my children appreciate who I am and admire and respect as much as they love me. But then are those special ones which we really appreciate and remember with love.

A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed

I have a pussy cat, whose coat is made of snow
When it rubs itself against me, it needs, love I know
But as I sleep with my dear ones when comes the cat
I shoo it away saying “Hey! Go catch yourself a rat”

Yeah, it is back. Those three words can be dreaded at times, but here knowing that the yearly SelfV event is back, the same words can put a smile across your face.
Rather than saying SelfV 2016 kicked off, we should say it Vroomed on the silent Sunday morning on the roads of Bangalore when Ducati Bikers showed their solidarity for fight against Cancer on 2nd October. For past two years we have watched hundreds of self-made videos of people who have overcome cancer, sharing their stories in open.

Knowing Your Heart – Congenital Heart Disease

 Last year, when I felt my heart was beating faster than normal, I never knew it was something called tachycardia which can seriously disrupt normal heart function, increase the risk of stroke, or cause sudden cardiac arrest or death. I assumed it must be due to stress or something similar until my heart was beating rate of more than 220 per minute and I had to call an ambulance.

My Special SIS - Sister In Survival

We were without a cable or dish TV connection for more than 1 and ½ decades. Yeah, my children grew up not watching TV and they are fine, even though I assure you that it was not an experiment conducted on them so see if children can actually live without TV or not. It was just that I felt we were watching TV whenever we are bored without using the time for some creative activity or outdoor games. So, out went the TV from our lives and in came computers.

Where it started?

Jamie, a 27 years old transgender from France was on the hospital bed, scared and perplexed. He was going to get operated in a few hours. It was the life changing operation. He was about to undergo a gender transference surgery and was missing his close ones.

Being a Mom - Reposting

One of the hundreds of loving moments which makes life worth living...
 When I was thoroughly enjoying Sidney Sheldon’s ‘Tell Me Your Dreams’, I was intrigued by the multiple personalities of Ashley Paterson. It was unbelievable that a person could have a diverse personality inside their psyche, that was until my own alternate personality took over me. My alternate personality was called ‘Maa’ and it was completely opposite of what I was. The advantage I had over Ashley was that, I was aware of both the sides of these personalities and could interact with them. I am spared the mystery at least! Whew.

Experiencing How ‘LO DO KHATAM KARO’ Works

Like everyone, “LO DO KHATAM KARO’ had caught my fancy as well a little while ago. I wondered how does this work, but naturally I was either too busy or too lazy to find out.
