Reading fortnight

Hi friends! Just to inform you all that few days back I have taken a brave and bold decision. I hope many of you would wholeheartedly appreciate that, many would recommend my name for bravery medals, many would honour me for the sacrifice I have made. It’s fine, I know I deserve that as not many have such patience, courage, guts and unnatural urge arising from the bottom of their hearts. You know, here most of the writers are just awesome writers. They write and vanish. Come back, check the likes and the comments. And again write. Some curious cats do peep into the commentators sites and leave their footprints behind. Some do the popular ‘tit for tat’. You like so I like. I don’t know whether you read or not, so same here.

Oh I just forgot to tell the decision I took as mentioned in the opening lines. Here it goes… I have decided to dedicate this fortnight to reading the blogs, liking them if I feel so and commenting my views. I won’t be writing to ensure the dedication towards my task.

Brave. Isn’t it? Now don’t hit me with that virtual stick!

mental elasticity

humans should be an elastic body

with an elastic mind and elastic soul

so that the normalcy can be restored

when disturbances are under control

but the mind generally gets pertubed

with the behaviour or the situations

and remains there like plastic body

and keep continuing with frustrations

even when the conditions cease to exist

and everything around is so conducive

the mental inertia spoils the happy days

and makes the life still more seclusive

cause of mental elasticity is will power

the ability to recover back from unrest

let’s raise the Young’s modulus higher

and work towards living life to its fullest

the mirror image

downcast, distressed, enervated disgrace

bloated eyes, desiccated, grotesque face

the sleepless nights, the nightly days

the notebook sketches, freaky ways

scatterbrained, meaningless walk

incongruous laughter, bemused talk

mystical creature, embodied human

bent to the earth, smattering confidence

wonder, am I seeing mirror erroneously

or is it an erratic benign coincidence

focus your imagination

do not worry if the life is full of hurdles

clear focus can save us from all troubles

don’t worry too much if the path is dark

focus on the destination when you embark

don’t get perturbed if negativity is all around

there is always some positivity in background

don’t waste your time in crying over spilt milk

see the future shaping under the veils of silk

don’t worry if helping others has cost you dear

smile on the faces will make your stress disappear

don’t just worry about the differences you hold

remain focused on similarities that may strike gold

don’t get carried away by the things people say

follow what your heart says and do it that way

don’t care of what others achieve in their career

concentrate only on what can make you happier

if you want to live a life, healthy wealthy and wise

you need to focus your imagination not your eyes

the art of pampering

if you pamper your kid on the dining table
 kid will never understand the value of food
 if you pamper your kid while playing next door
 kid will never know the value of neighbourhood
 if you pamper your kid daily on the study table
 kid will never be able to read between the lines
 if you pamper the kid by giving whatever he want
 kid will never understand the meaning of necessity
 if you pamper the kid by accompanying him always
 the kid will never know how to move the next step
 if you pamper the kid by agreeing to whatever he says
 the kid will never understand the pain of denial
 but still you need to pamper the kid at many occasion
 pamper the kid when he loses in school competition
 pamper him to be disciplined, to respect opposite gender
 pamper him to accept defeat, to develop sportsman spirit
 pamper at the right time, right place and in a right way

life’s biggest fraud

I wish I could effortlessly amble

in the borders of Pakistan and India

I wish I could stay and wander

in the cool borders of China and India

I could just take a stroll

in the lanes of present Afghanistan

I wish I could express myself

in the current Korean governance

Why is this so very difficult

in this beautiful human abode

why is this human freeway

became the most dreadful road

do we want our species extinct

with such most disastrous imprint

or are we mistaking self to God

and committing life’s biggest fraud
