Celebrations, Celebrations, Celebrations ~Malpua with Rabdi~ Reposted

Laughing at me ? looking at the title? thinking Jagruti has gone crazy..:D ! I know must be you are thinking she is promoting Vidya Balan's Dirty Pictures :-P hahaha..well let me tell you No I am not, but hey I really enjoyed that movie and Vidya's work..she won the National award too ! well done Dirty Pictures team..Congratulations !

The reason I put my title as Celebrations..because what a day Ive having ! celebrating three, beautiful occasions..First it's my dad's birthday today :)
A very happy b'day papa !!

2nd we are celebrating today festival of colours Holi..wishing everyone a very happy and safe Holi !!
May God gift you all the colors of life,
colors of joy, colors of happiness,
colors of friendship, colors of love
and all other colors you
want to paint in your life. Happy Holi.
and 3rd is us women celebrating women's day !! proud to be a woman and wishing every woman in the world a very happy women's day !!
A woman is an epitome of grace beauty, love, power, generosity, affection...she is symbolic of strength. She is driven by emotions but she has a heart that feels for others so selflessly and unconditionally. She cries but there is pain, anger and frustration in those tears. Still those tears are not her weakness...they show her endurance and tolerance.Her silence speaks volumes for her patience. Don’t test it because when that silence breaks and that lava erupts. Its heat can melt all those chauvinists and burn them to ashes.
Don't underestimate the strength of a woman. She may be portrayed as weak, but she can carry a child in her womb. She may look vulnerable, but she can weather a storm. A woman can multi-task as a mother, wife, worker, friend, and daughter, without missing a beat."Its a challenge to be a "woman" because within that role they have more different roles. Cheers to all the women in the world. Lets sa...lute each other for being so strong and yet so caring. Let’s celebrate International Women's Week "
So there are so many happy moments for me to celebrate today's day , there is no better dish than Malpua with Rabdi...My dad's favourite sweet dish and of course mine too and I am sure yours too :-)
