From me and all my cousins.

Eulogy to our Daddy.

Mr. Franklin S Peter was born on 9th June 1942. He was eldest among his siblings with 2 younger sisters and 2 younger brothers born to Mr. & Mrs. Ruth Sumanthappa Peter.

You all might wonder why am I calling my doddappa as our daddy. It’s Solly because, from the time we all cousins were born we lived in a joint family and ever since then we called him as our “Daddy” and having lost our father’s few years back. It made us realise that it was gods plan for us to call him as Daddy.

Having said this, as he grew along in life he got married to Mrs. Macline F Peter and was blessed with 2 sons. And was blessed enough to have witnessed his grand children’s Asher, Othniel and Olivia.

Summing up his life in short. I keep coming back to one thought. Never will you meet a man who was more faithfully lived his values. He was a teacher of all things. He was a preacher, a carpenter and many more. There was no work which he ever said was not possible. His method was simple and was a man of perfection.

It’s true, at any age when faced by ethical dilemma. You will find yourself coming back to one simple question. What would my father do? That’s how his presence was to the entire family now.

When it came to academics. He left it half way down the lane at PC Jabins science college as he had to be a helping hand to his hard-working father who was his role model. And then on it was a non stop commitment towards his work and family.

Even at the age of 75 (post retirement). He never was a man at rest. You would always find him busy in one or the thing.

This was just a gist of how he was in his entire life that I have seen.

And so would like to say. You have been great and faithful throughout your life Daddy. May your soul rest in peace.

My Daily Routine!

What is the common thing. That we all are lost in this busy world we live in?

Ever wondered? What it could be??

Woooah!! Hold on .. too many questions are being bombarded all at once! Too hard to handle?

Haha.. No worries! Let me just begin with the topic without any further ado.

Well, to begin with. I am a person who is very much involved in a very busy Routine!

Yes! it is all about Routine!

What is this “Routine” all about??

I would rather give the real life examples or situations to explain this!

We all follow a set of routine from the time we are born! Wondering how could this be even possible?! šŸ˜€

Well, Let me explain you about it.

When as a Baby:


  • Wakes up!
  • Cry and Laugh!
  • Hungry and Eat!
  • Potty! šŸ˜€

Having known about all the Routine! at different phases of life. Let us also know..

Why do you Like or Hate your Routine!?

For pragmatic reasons, I love the routine. I love the structure of it. I love knowing that my days are free. I know where Iā€™m going at night. I know my life is kind of orderly. I just like that better.

– Andrea Martin

Well, in my opinion. Routine is something inevitable. It cannot be avoided from our life no matter what!

When you follow the right Routine! It gives you more structured way of life. Keeps you organized and focused on what you want in your life! By doing this, you start liking it!

Routine! will let you live a conventional life!

It will make your life robotic in nature! In simple words you would not have any stories to tell from your life.

But! when you let your Routine! overshadow your life and happiness. You eventually start hating it!

Let me just speak about the quote I read about Routine! written by Henry Van Dyke!

As long as habit and routine dictate the pattern of living, new dimensions of the soul will not emerge.

– Henry Van Dyke

Exactly! We should never let our routine dictate the way we live.

Sometimes! We need to step out of our Routine! and Start living your life to the fullest!

Now, How would you start living your life to fullest along with following your Routine!?

A) Give yourself sometime apart from the daily Routine!

  • It gives you more flexibility.
  • Reduce monotony and the feeling of sameness of your daily life

B) Start thinking with a creative perspective!

  • It will let you open up the possibility to adjust your activities to your moods.
  • You can lead to new streams of creativity
  • You can make your life overall more exciting and interesting

C) Go Travel! Explore new places!

  • No doubt, It will definitely make you feel better deviating from your Routine!
  • You will start seeing the new phase of life. How different it is apart your daily Routine!

D) Hangout with different people!

  • It will let you know what is others point of view on the things you know.
  • You will start exploring and learn all new things that you never knew even existed!



To sum it all, I would just like to quote the most valuable saying I had read about Routine!

Habit and routine have an unbelievable power to waste and destroy.

– Henri de Lubac

In short, Routine! is the best thing to have. Provided you don’t let it stop you from living your life and enjoying it!
