Squirrel in swimming pool

Yesterday, we opened our backyard swimming pool. It is attached to the deck, so we can see it from our kitchen. I and my husband, were just excited about the pool and talking about it. Just then my husband noticed that there is something in the pool. He said the bird is taking bath in the pool.

We went outside on the deck to see. We noticed that it is not the bird, it is squirrel and she is trying to come out. My husband took the net which he uses to clean the pool and got the squirrel out from the pool and put him out. Squirrel was so scared and in shock, she was not moving at all, we were worried whether she will survive or not. I think she had fallen down from the tree. We didn't know how long was she in the pool.


We were sure that she is alive as her eyes were open. She was too wet and was full of water, so she was not able to move. My husband loves animals and he likes to take care of them. He didn't want to leave her like that. He kept an eye on her, he patted her. He gave some peanuts to eat. He gave some milk to drink. He also gave her some bird feed (yes, they use to eat bird feed when we put for birds). Finally, she started to eat and drink. Some water drained out and she started to feel light and safe.

She started to move and ate all the food. She became active and just ran away. To see that she is safe and fine, we were so happy. It took her 5 minutes to come out of the shock and feel good. There are so many squirrels and birds in our backyard and they run here & there. They just play around and make noises. She was again part of those noises.

Shadi ke Side Effects (2014)

Shadi ke Side Effects, this hindi movie was released last Friday. When I saw the trailer, I thought this is a comedy. Actually it was a good movie and it relates to most of the couples in this world. I liked the story and theme of the movie. Direction was very good. Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan are very good actors and they did their best in the movie. I liked the way how they acted beautifully in very small situations.

One of my favorite scenes was when Farhan met with a father of four kids who tells him his story and after that he agrees to have kids now. Actually this is true. If a woman decides to deliver the child very late, her health issues may happen. So, it's better to have kids early as possible.

It happens to every mother. When a woman gives birth to a kid, she is totally responsible for taking care of her kid. And she becomes so possessive about her kid that it looks like she doesn't care about anything else except her kids. But that is not reality. Being mother of two sons, I know how tired and exhausted we are. Yes, we are enjoying our kids, but we also want support from our husbands. As husbands want our company, we are seeking their support to handle kids for some time. But if husband is like Farhan, who leaves his daughter with a horseman and forgets about it. I am very very lucky that I have got a great husband who takes care of the kids and plays with them.

Overall movie was good, but I don't think the name of the movie matches to the story. The movie's name was Shadi ke Side Effects, but the story was about the changes in couple's lives after their daughter was born. After their marriage, they were very happy couple. When their daughter was born, their life was totally changed. So basically it was showing the side effects of having the kids.

These were my personal views. Please share your thoughts too.
