Richa Reply My Say on May 26, 2013 at 3:41 pm hahahaha .. even this post is home inspired 😀 the only difference was .. I could not speak that up front ( in my mind and now I am used to waking up at 6am no matter I sleep or not ) 😀 Reply Easwar Arumugam on May 26, 2013 at 2:53 pm Ha ha ha Reply My Say on May 26, 2013 at 3:42 pm 🙂 Reply Vikram Pandit on May 26, 2013 at 3:03 pm The next generation! Time to sleep is 5 am, and there is no time to wake up…:D Reply My Say on May 26, 2013 at 3:44 pm hahaha 😀 so true !! Reply Geetashree Chatterjee on May 26, 2013 at 3:38 pm Prolific is the word for you! Good one this is…my father’s ideal getting-up time was 04.00 am. To be very honest I like getting up at 4 which is the brahma muhurtha as per the Hindu Shastra. You are actually teeming with energy and everything positive at that point of time. Padding the house on soft feet is something I hugely enjoy while others are deeply in sleep. But when I go to bed late or too tired I can’t get up early which is a pity and my entire day’s routine goes kaput. Nice post this one! Reply My Say on May 26, 2013 at 3:50 pm after listening to Sister Shivani from Brahmakumaris and since I left call centers I have somehow managed waking up early .. not exactly at the Brahma Muhurtha as even sister Shivani asks too.. but by 5:30-6.00 am But trust me as I a kid I always felt like uttering back to my loving dad for reacting to my morning greets with his early to rise …proverbs in Hindi or Sanskrit. He only stopped this act when I would be back home at 3am or 6am as per my shift ! He was the happiest one when I left call center industry 😀 Reply Suhas on May 26, 2013 at 4:21 pm Well waking up early morning is a good and productive practice, despite our generation considers it an old story. Reply My Say on May 26, 2013 at 4:29 pm well It is forsure Kumar .. good to see you back .. where have you been for a week almost ?? Reply kislayagopal on May 26, 2013 at 5:54 pm I can relate to it, as no matter what, my papa would wake me and my siblings by 5 am, and now my routine varies, but I wonder how he still manages to get up by 5 am whatever be his routine etc, I guess a sense of discipline or may be habit over a long period of time is the reason. Reply My Say on May 26, 2013 at 5:57 pm indeed so true !! In fact developing habit of waking up early helps maintaining better mental and physical health . 🙂 where have u been since last few days ?? Reply kislayagopal on May 26, 2013 at 6:08 pm You are absolutely right about physical n mental health..it also gives a positive feel throughout the day.Yes I am in the process of shifting and also my sister visited me, so i was busy 🙂 Reply My Say on May 26, 2013 at 6:11 pm 🙂 good to see u back 🙂 Reply kislayagopal on May 26, 2013 at 6:14 pm 🙂 🙂 mridula on May 26, 2013 at 5:59 pm No early to rise for me till I started playing photographer! Reply My Say on May 26, 2013 at 6:02 pm hehehe .. 🙂 yeah I remember you mentioned .. this in one of your posts .. the one where you took the sunrise photograph with the sun bulging out of the photograph !! 🙂 Reply aamjunta on May 26, 2013 at 7:49 pm Being an early riser I can understand the message very well. Nicely captured. I have good personal memories too.

What’s with dads and getting up early? Especially during the weekends? Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 12:41 am hahaha next time my pappa wakes me up on weekends .. i’ll red out your comment 😀 😀 Reply svsaibaba on May 27, 2013 at 6:20 am Good advice to the young generation who never follow this good habit. I have posted the benefits of early rising in my blog with the link:http://svsaibaba.blogspot.com/2012/07/benefits-of-waking-up-early-tips-for.html Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 7:44 am Yes Sir,somehow the culture of early rising is fading away from Indian houses. Thank you so very much Sir for dropping by and sharing your advice and link share discussing positives of early rising. Reply Sourav (@AllStuffCodes) on May 27, 2013 at 8:13 am Yeah true for most of today’s generation. But I still get up by 5:30 in the morning. Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 8:35 am Thats so needed for a great start day by day everyday !! 🙂 Reply magiceye on May 27, 2013 at 9:57 am 🙂 Good morning! Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 9:58 am 🙂 good morning bhai !! 🙂 Reply namrota on May 27, 2013 at 10:18 am Is that your story Jack 😛 ?I get a sugar-coated-lecture from dad whenever my 6.00 am becomes 8 am 😛 Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 10:32 am hehehe yes half a decade back I suppose 😀 now after so much smothering and gyans from my pappa dearest and listening to Shri Shri and Sister Shivani of Brahmakumaris I have inculcated this deep inside that I will wake up early no matter what ! 😀 as if i have any choice 😀 8a m is quite ok ? aint it ? kintu baba der bojhabe ta ke ? hahaha Reply namrota on May 27, 2013 at 10:45 am hehehe… for dads 8 am is late… after 8 its afternoon :P.. ekhon emon hoye gechhe je.. 8-taar por ghoom neeje neeje-yi bhenge jaaye 😀On serious note… I feel a waking up early makes your day productive and your body healthy… I have experienced it .. hence, I always try to maintain the early to bed -early to rise. Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 10:54 am On that note I recall …in Bombay it remains dark till late mornings I mean surely till 5:30 am and the sun when it comes out looks lot bigger and deadly … Kolkata is completely different .. during summers 4:50 and the brightness and the breeze invades and the sun does not look that harsh !! tumi Mumbaiker right ? Reply namrota on May 27, 2013 at 6:03 pm Yes I am a Mumbaikar … kintu I never saw the sun bigger & deadly however, yes.. the sun rises in Kolkata before it does in Mumbai 🙂 My Say on May 27, 2013 at 6:47 pm 🙂 Sfurti on May 27, 2013 at 10:43 am Haha..not my dad but my mom. We all (including our dad) would sleep till 10 on Sundays and mom would go nuts…still get lectures from her :-).. Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 10:51 am hehehe !! ours used to be opposite all of us and mum .. but pappa dearest managed to discipline the sons and the wife 😀 Reply Sfurti on May 27, 2013 at 11:20 am 🙂 In my case our kids brought us both on line…for some reason both the kids refuse to sleep beyond 7 am..ever!!!!!!!!! (Why oh why do they not get the concept of Sunday just yet ) Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 11:22 am wow !! disciplined kiddos 🙂 loved that !! Kiddos waking up parents 😀 😀 sahi hai !! Reply Sfurti on May 27, 2013 at 11:31 am 🙂 🙂 I know!!! Pankti Mehta on May 27, 2013 at 10:57 am Unfortunately, I can relate to this…earlier when I had morning school, I used to get up grumbling. But now? Life is sweet. No responsibilities. So I indulge in my actual character now – being an owl. I sleep at 3 am and get up 7.30 am. Aah… Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 11:04 am thats quite less time for sleep !! hopefully thats sound sleep . 7:30 is decent 😉 i feel given you work ( i suppose) till 3 in the morning . I mean, I work till 2 and wake up between 5:30- 8 depending on my father’s mood and my willingness to go jogging 🙂 Reply Pankti Mehta on May 27, 2013 at 11:08 am Haha…yeah, this sleep is not enough but if it comes down to reading/writing versus sleep, the former wins hands down. So I am perpetually sleep deprived during the weekdays…i make up for it during Sundays..Yay holidays 😉 Fortunately, my mom doesn’t hound me for getting up in the mornings as she earlier used to do. Now when i get up in the mornings with heavy eyes, she asks me to go back to sleep for another half an hour…Told ya, life is sweet 🙂 Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 11:15 am 🙂 lucky u 🙂 Reply Pankti Mehta on May 27, 2013 at 11:20 am I know 😉 Aditi on May 27, 2013 at 12:33 pm Nice one 🙂 🙂 ..weekdays I hv to get up by 7:00 at least else m late fr office… n mostly m sleep deprived cz of late nights…I try to catch up on my sleep during weekend afternoons…cz ur post is exactly what I get to hear from my father in law if I get up late 🙁 🙁 he is such a disciplinarian in this regards…even on chutti days he is up bathed n all by 8:00 am…. Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 12:43 pm hahahaha !! nice to know I am not alone … 😀 … I used to think I am the rare case who is forced to wake up early even in free India 😀 thanks for dropping by Aditi and sharing your thoughts !! Appreciate it ! Reply StyleDestino on May 27, 2013 at 1:04 pm u have no idea, its been ages and I have been trying to wake up early. Hopeful wud do soon Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 4:31 pm best of luck !! I am sure you will someday soon greet the sun at 6 am 🙂 thanks for dropping by and sharing your thoughts 🙂 Reply Dipti on May 27, 2013 at 1:25 pm Loved it!! My Mom used to tell this to me about my clothes when I was in college 😛 Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 4:31 pm hehehe 🙂 glad you could relate 🙂 Reply sushmitha06 on May 27, 2013 at 2:32 pm Ha ha 🙂 Good one.

Movies was the sole reason. But It was the most productive time of my life, learnt alot. Now job doesent allow that luxury ! Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 8:09 pm so true !! if not parents .. and academics .. jobs and bosses surely wake us up early mornings 😀 Reply Isha Khanna on May 27, 2013 at 10:22 pm I am so not a morning person so I hear the same sentence from my dad every single day! 😛 Reply My Say on May 27, 2013 at 10:27 pm 😀 mornings are great for health !! 🙂 Reply sangeeta on May 28, 2013 at 2:36 pm Hahahah! Reminds me of my dad…he would wake up at 4.30 am, look at us sisters sleeping and lament “The whole world has woken up and my daughters are still sleeping!” He would then proceed to either open the window if it was winter or take out the mosquito net if it was summer…so you see we had no other option but to wake up 🙁 Reply My Say on May 28, 2013 at 2:52 pm hehehehe… witty Dad .. i must say !! 😀 Reply stylebees on May 28, 2013 at 4:03 pm funny it is…thank god my dad never used to wake me up early 🙂 Reply My Say on May 28, 2013 at 4:07 pm 😀 Reply the little princess on May 29, 2013 at 11:18 am im a late riser….and mom got so tired of giving me gyan, that she stopped telling me to get up early!! it not that i don’t want to , i just can’t! 🙂 luckily my kids are early risers! Reply My Say on May 29, 2013 at 12:15 pm hahaha..womankind given an opportunity prefer to wake up late,I have experienced ! 🙂 Reply ddeepa on May 29, 2013 at 6:45 pm LOL. Seriously man! Sometimes I think many a custom from back-in-those-days seem so unnecessary and yet are often touted as an achievement! Cheers, Deepa – 10 Reasons Why I Didn’t Post Reply My Say on May 29, 2013 at 6:54 pm hahahaa .. customs still followed in many households !! 😀 Reply anjan roy on May 30, 2013 at 8:43 pm illogical indeed…toady’s lifestyle has changed a lot an today…people do think it’s no use to wake at 5am in morning…but then…!!!
