“To describe a mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” — Maya Angelou

They say that mothers are gifted with superpowers from The Almighty to fight with all odds that come in their own and their children’s paths. The Mothers can fight with all their potential till their last breath to remove all the obstacles that hinders their child from blooming. These superpowers are nothing but their inner strength, extraordinary courage which come from within which one musters during the course of the wonderful journey called motherhood.

Let’s meet, such a wonder woman, a brave hearted iron lady, Sharmi Roy who is keeping no stones unturned for the treatment of her 3 year old boy who is suffering from chronic congenital kidney problems. Sharmi’s son, Arnesh requires regular dialysis and this Iron Lady is planning to donate her kidney as the little boy grows up.

Sharmi stands out to be a figure who represents the sheer determination of a mother.

So here’s her story in her own words:

At first when you came to know about your child’s health condition, how did you deal with it?

I was devastated because it was my 2nd mishap as before my son Arnesh I gave birth to my first daughter who died just within 15 days after her birth .This time I didn’t wanted to lose my son . I used to question God that why I had to go through all these things. But with time I understood that I was the chosen one who can take the best care of my son so for that reason I started to take things easy and deal with patience because my one wrong decision can worsen the entire scenario.

How do you tackle all these situations throughout?

With times I have mastered the way to tackle these situations as I constantly keep myself updated with the information about CNS patients and also connected to groups where all the CNS patients’ parents are in touch with each other.

Who has been your constant support system?

I can’t really mention only a single person for supporting me my husband Arnab Roy, my dad and my mom all are my support system mentally, physically and financially.

How do you manage time especially having a new born?

 It’s really difficult in the beginning but now I have made a proper schedule for both my kids and try to follow that as time management is very important for me.

 What keeps you motivated, owing to the fact that you are an entrepreneur?

Success is what motivates me to do a good job. Knowing the fact that my hard work and perseverance will help me achieve greater professional success is what keeps me going. I want to challenge myself constantly. It is necessary to keep refining one’s skills and never stop learning .My mom is my role model.

What will be your message for other mothers?

 Every moms are best no special message only I would like to say that just  raise your kids with good values, inculcate good qualities within your kids from the very beginning and be their best friend so that they share everything with us .

Kids are like soft clay we parents can mould them as we want to, proper guidance will help to create a great future for your kids

An M.tech and PhD pursuer Sharmi left her prospective career only to carry out the bigger responsibility of a mother. Now she is the proud owner of a handmade jewelry brand “Goynaar Baksho”, managing her set up, looking after her two kids and strongly handling her son’s health condition.

We believe that’s the Superpower of A Mom: “Never Give Up”.

Motherhood is an amazing journey. It can be quite a challenging phase of life, especially when it comes to making the right choices for your kids. A few days ago, a recent Bloggers’ Meet conducted by Himalaya BabyCare & Himalaya Mom along with Dr. Subhashini from the Himalaya R&D Team, helped mommies like us in choosing the best for our babies, with regards to the skin care and hair care products.

 

Himalaya is a brand that holds a rich legacy of an experienced team along with thousands of happy users. The expert doctor from the team shared eye-opening insights about how Himalaya takes meticulous care of each of the ingredients going into the making of the product. All the herbs are carefully chosen, handpicked, and ensured that they are the best for your little one’s skin. For new moms or moms who often oscillate between opinions while choosing the right products for the delicate skin of their kids, such knowledgeable insights worked as a great source of advice. Moreover, as moms, we also learned how the Himalaya BabyCare range ensures that the products do not contain any sort of toxic ingredient which definitely reinforces our faith in the effectiveness of the brand.

The Meet was not only restricted to the sharing of insights but also a live demo of the products. Display of the products gave mommies like us an idea about the feel of the products, establishing the authenticity of the brand. The Himalaya BabyCare range comprises an extensive variety taking care of the head-to-heel needs of your little one.

The most important aspect is that the brand not only knows the needs of baby’s skin but also understands the skin requirements of mothers. Well, as quoted earlier, motherhood often seems to be a tough journey where the mum forgets to devote time to herself, being involved in her daily chores. Himalaya has addressed the issues of all moms by introducing their “Himalaya Mom” range of products. In this range, you can discover necessary products exclusively made for mothers’ skin. Intimate wipes and Intimate Wash by Himalaya are some of the great products that we, as women, are always in need of. For new mums, Himalaya Mom has the Nipple Care Butter and Nursing Wipes that work as a boon for the women who have just commenced the journey of motherhood.

All of them are safe outputs of scientific research and a blend of Ayurveda that re-emphasizes our trust in the brand.

The Perfect Way To Give Your Little One Instant Relief From Stomach Issues: Thanks to???

Summers are in the mode of arrival and it’s once again time to devote special care to our diets. Drinking lots of water and keeping our little ones hydrated is definitely one thing every mom vouches to do every summer. However despite the special care and attention, kids tend to complain Of stomachaches and other related problems.

The seasonal change not only causes difficulties like cough and cold but brings about heavy indigestion, stomachaches and other associated issues.
Especially for infants and toddlers, the issues get aggravated and the only solution is to take them to the pediatrician and subject them to the heavy, undesired dosages of antibiotics.

My kid being prone to junk food like other kids often complains of stomachaches.

Well, but a few days back, I happened to chance on this product by MamaEarth, MamaEarth’s Easy Tummy Roll On that has turned out to be the perfect savior for my kid with its exclusive natural ingredients. I have fallen in complete love with this product for its amazing series of benefits.

So here’s a quick glimpse of what this small in package but great in effects roll on has to offer for you.

A Natural Solution To The Ailing Stomach

One of the major reasons I appreciate this product is its flawless natural constitution. It contains Hing Oil that is greatly efficient in reducing gas and let it pass away naturally thus clearing the indigestion. Apart from Hing oil, other oils that are present in the Tummy Roll are Peppermint oil, Ginger oil, fennel oil etc. The anti-colic characteristics of these oils assist in clearing gas and regularize the bowel movement. Stomachaches that are highly common in children and infants get easily cured with the joint effects of these multi-efficient oils.

A Cooling Effect Post Application

Mostly all babies and children suffer from heartburn issues and problems in bowel movements. The Peppermint oil that this Tummy Roll on contains works miracles with its cooling effects. It not only heals the heartburns but also produces a soothing effect.

A Safer Alternative to Antibiotics

Stomach ailments are issues that often need immediate treatment and what we do as a reflex action is to take the kid to his/her pediatrician. Little do we think that in this course we subject him./her to the side-effects of a chain of antibiotics. Whereas this Tummy Roll on comes as a savior with natural healing ingredients as well as free from any sort of chemicals or drugs. Its credibility is further reinforced by being recommended by dermatologist and certified by MadeSafe.

Compact Packaging And Super Travel-Friendly

Another blessing that comes with this product is its innovative packaging. Mobile, can be carried anywhere without any spillovers, this Tummy Roll On is a savior for all your travel plans with all your little kiddo. Takes lesser space than a water bottle and you need not worry about any sort of other medicines even if you are travelling to a desolate island when you have this in your travel pouch.

Easy To Apply Without Any Irritation

One of the major difficulties that come along while you try to feed your kids medicines is their super attitude. ONE OF THE BEST ADVANTAGES OF The Easy Tummy Roll On is that you need not bear any tantrums of your kiddo while its application. You can just roll it on as he lies on the bed without any fear of irritation or vomiting as he/she must be usually doing for medicines.

Thus a great product launched by MamaEarth that gives you all the essential benefits of a medicine and yet not a medicine. MamaEarth, keep on launching such amazing products so that we as mommies can give instant pain reliefs to our kiddos.
