Beauty that the Mother Nature offers to us is just awesome. People visit the places blooming with flowers and the greenery and feel elated. My friends visited places rich in natural beauty, natural resources, flora and fauna, this New Year.
But I was at home. The reason was quite simple. I have a cute little daughter. And One of the greatest gifts I’ve ever gotten is my daughter (Ace Frehley). Probably others have not carefully noticed their little ones smiling, but when my daughter smiles, I feel that there have been flowers blooming all around. As she walks slowly and cautiously on the while tiles of the house, it appears as if I am visiting the Antarctic area with Penguin walking to reach me in its unique style. She laughs and it seems that the small pearls inside her little mouth will beautify the entire surroundings.
As David Duchovny says and I too agree that “The happiest moment of my life was probably when my daughter was born”.
She calls people around with names she is slowly taught and it appears that the sweet voice of cuckoo is making the environment delightful. Her playful actions, her crawling, her standing and falling down, her rolling, all comes like a delight pre-programmed by the Mother Nature to soothe the eyes and souls of the parents and the onlookers. Why one need to go to temple when the Almighty Himself has descended in the form of the daughter.
That is one of the reasons why I rush back to house after work. As Hugh Jackman mentions, “When I come home, my daughter will run to the door and give me a big hug, and everything that’s happened that day just melts away” the same is true for me too. I may be bit cruel but sometimes I feel pity on those who either do not have any daughter or do not spend time seeing the angel growing up. No amount of money gathering exercise can replace this wealth. Once this phase passes away, no matter how many million dollars one invests he is not going to get anything back.
A daughter makes the life of parents special and that is nothing less than an achievement!

As New Year arrives people tend to adopt many resolutions and try to follow them. The number of resolutions may vary. Some feel they are too perfect to make any resolutions, some do not believe in waiting for a new year to make resolutions. Some make a single resolution and see that they follow it throughout the year and also thereafter. Some have a list of resolutions which they try to attempt and succeed in few or all of them. Some make a resolution not to make any resolutions. Continue reading
why do I come here?
to quench the ever-growing longing of literary orgasm
to extinguish my burning desires
to satiate my greed of scholarly wisdom
to let the greats interact with
to let the knowledge show its power
to remain acquiescent
to drink the nectar seeping out of conversant souls
to let the ocean of intelligence release the tsunami
out of the volcanic eruption of the convoluted brains
why do I come here?
to realize the supremacy of the inner self
to convey, to communicate, to connect
to discover and get discovered
to learn how to avoid being offensive
to take away things what human want
to stay human!
Death is the only truth in life. This is very true statement. We all think that we are living to enjoy, to prosper, to achieve fame, to accumulate wealth, to rule the world etc. etc. but the fact is that we all are living just to die another day. Continue reading
And finally the #MeToo revolution was triggered in our part of the world. Till now we were just following the stories from other parts of the world especially the USA and debating on them. Until one fine day one of the so-called victim stood up and shared her side of the story. The story was soon encapsulated in the searching shell of #MeToo and the much awaited trigger was finally pressed. Though there was not much of hype anticipated in this part of the world as the number of socially proven rape cases daily are far more than the number of #MeToo cases expected. In this part of the world, where every minute a Draupadi is being molested and all the Dhritarashtras and Bhishmas remain passive and mute, what value a #MeToo case can carry? Seeing the plight of women in this part of the world, these victims unanimously agree that #MeToo cases are far too less a molestation for them. That probably may be one of the reasons why #MeToo arrived so late in this part of the world. Continue reading

Sitting on a railway platform and watching the arrival and departure of the trains is the best pastime one can have. At least for this, one need not have the smart phone or the internet. Since you don’t have to catch a train, you can sit relaxing, perhaps sipping a cup of tea and watch passengers rushing for their seats. The hawkers, the porters, the movement of trains, all make it a carnival like atmosphere around. I enjoy this dynamic atmosphere a lot. Continue reading
