As A Disabled Woman I Had To Battle To Get Married

People may have some form of disability, but why should this be a barrier in life, for is life not just what you make it to be.

People talk about ‘normal’ but what is ‘normal’ is this just a perception for what could be ‘normal’ for one may not be ‘normal’ for another.

Being with another, be it marriage or not, is creating a relationship to which both parties belong and relate to.

The two persons are the important factors in the relationship and others or Society should not be imposing any barriers to that relationship, provided both are consenting partners, they are of legal age and have the capacity to consent.

Same Difference

Sometimes he’d even forget that I only had one arm. He was an able-bodied person, a complete man – he could get any girl.

But he was with me. It had been a year since we started living together under one roof without getting married.

The decision to stay together while unmarried was not an easy one.

It started after I created my profile on a matrimonial site to alleviate my mother’s concern about my marriage.

I had turned 26 and my mother thought it was time.

My left arm had got cut off in an accident when I was a child, so I understood her anxiety about my marriage.

One day, I got a request on the matrimonial site. The man was an engineer by profession. He was Bengali too, just like me, though from a different city.

But I was unable to decide anything. So I wrote back…

Maternity Ward Angel In Disguise6

Kindness Blog

Following childbirth at a military hospital I shared a room with another lady who had given birth within a couple hours of me.

This lady had a husband who was soldier. We were both in for a 3 day stay. The soldier husband was by his wife’s bedside any chance he could get.

original-flower-16555The first evening he walked over to my bedside and asked me “where is the father?”

I told him that he wasn’t coming because he’s not interested.At that point he touched my daughter and disappeared.

He came back with a flower, one for his wife and one for me. Next visit he brought food for both of us ladies. Next visit, he interacted with both our babies. He was caring, warm and sharing.

That was 24 years ago. I will never forget it.

I wish I knew his name because it touched me so much.

Today We Pray For The Victims of Domestic Abuse

Endless Light and Love


My Dear Friends,

Domestic abuse, most often brushed under the carpet, locked behind the doors of the home, never spoken about, hidden behind shaking smiles in the hope that one day it will be ok and everything will go back to the time before the abuse started to happen!….

Unfortunately, in most cases, the abuse never stops, in most cases the abuse escalates to even higher levels, often the abuse moves over from one family member to others and sometimes even continues across generations, when the abused become the abuser !

Today, I pray for all the victims of abuse. Abuse can come in many forms, physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, confinement abuse etc.

No one, No one deserves to be abused!

No one should be treated without respect!

No one should have to live in fear!

No one……No one.

If you are in a situation of abuse, then…

True Love! Devoted Wife Dies of Broken Heart 8 Days After Husband Passed Away

Madamsabi's Blog

A childless devoted couple died only eight days apart after 72 years together. Betty Balkwill, 85, died of a broken heart shortly after husband Norman, also 85. The couple met at a Christmas party when they were just 13.


They spent their final days on different wards at Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital but were reunited when Betty was wheeled to Norman’s bedside before he died.

Close friend of the couple Derek Blatchford said: “They were a devoted couple. They got on so well. They did not have children – they just needed each other. They will be really missed but I suppose if they had to go this would have been the way they wanted it. They were devoted to each other for so many years.”


Their nephew Ray Balkwill said: “After Norman died, Betty died just eight days later. I think she just pined away without him.”

The Old Man And His Family

So true

Madamsabi's Blog

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and a four-year old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered. The family ate together nightly at the dinner table. But the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating rather difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass often milk spilled on the tablecloth.


The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess. “We must do something about grandfather,” said the son. I’ve had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor. So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There, grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner at the dinner table. Since grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. Sometimes when the family…

She Never Saw The Cake by Joseph Walker

Such a good message for all to consider.

Madamsabi's Blog

Cindy glanced nervously at the clock on the kitchen wall. Five minutes before midnight.


“They should be home any time now,” she thought as she put the finishing touches on the chocolate cake she was frosting. It was the first time in her 12 years she had tried to make a cake from scratch, and to be honest, it wasn’t exactly an aesthetic triumph. The cake was . . . well, lumpy. And the frosting was bitter, as if she had run out of sugar or something.

Which, of course, she had.

And then there was the way the kitchen looked. Imagine a huge blender filled with all the ingredients for chocolate cake  including the requisite bowls, pans and utensils. Now imagine that the blender is turned on. High speed. With the lid off.

Do you get the idea?

But Cindy wasn’t thinking about the mess. She had created something…
