Parenting in middle age

fath

Being a father is definitely the most beautiful and blissful feeling and becoming father in the middle age is a heavenly thing. As per the unwritten norms of our society, marriage for a male generally takes place somewhere between 24-28 years and for a female between 21-25 years. As the couples reach their forties, they generally travel far from the parenting business and stay confined to fulfilling the daily needs of the kids which most of the times remain limited to the local purchases from the market.

the childhood pack

those were the days fabulous

amazing incredible and marvellous

the childhood was at its peak

less to respond, more to freak

the never ending slots of fun

the thrills, the unintended pun

the playfulness, the ignorance

the stupidity, the defiance

and now that we are grown up

the expectations are blown up

and now divided we stand

fighting for money and land

time to pay homage to those days

for those we all crave always

knowing that we will never get back

the precious magical childhood pack

that unforgettable trance

it was my first travel to the beautiful sandy beach

lying for the sunbath I tried to expand my reach

it was my good luck or was that God’s grace

I saw a beautiful lady leaning on my face

I too stayed calm so as not to miss the chance

but my heart started performing the most genitive dance

was that the start of my everlasting romance 

as vibes emanating thence had put me in deep trance

the mind became senseless and the senses went mindless

the journey appeared soothing but the travel was endless

and when all my senses returned back to normal

I found myself in a yacht with only a piece of formal

Enjoy the Manali Trance

most dangerous creature

Oh! the poor creature called the human being

you don’t deserve thinking, hearing and seeing

trapped inside boundaries of umpteen nations

you disobey the creator and ignore His creations

He taught human beings to tolerate and forgive

and inherently fused the spirit of live and let live

but his deeds drove the mankind to mass insanity

made incompetent to unfurl the flag of humanity

they spoiled eco-balance and exploited mother nature

the humans have evolved into most dangerous creature

the freedom

freedom is so precious, never take it for granted

as you can raise your voice whenever you wanted

you can breathe much easier with a sense of pride

you can speak up your mind with your mouth wide

why does freedom means putting yourself first?

why does it orient you towards the bloody thirst

why people showcase their religious extremism

why some insane brutes tend to foster terrorism

the freedom does not teach you to act Willy-nilly

the liberty does not allow you to react hellish silly

let freedom be in heart and freedom be in mind

let freedom be in our thoughts that we unwind

religion, caste, creed, language let all be nursed

but whatever we do the nation should come first

The hair story

hairs

I feel, the biggest scare for a human being during peace time is finding a gray hair on his head the very first time. ‘Am I growing old?’ is the first reaction followed by a self negation of the thought. It takes months and years to make one understand and accept the fact that he or she is growing old. Continue reading
