30 minutes journey

 

Somebody has rightly said “Life is a journey”  and i completely agree with that person. In fact i believe, life is merely not a single journey, it is indeed a combination of various small journeys  that teaches one or the other thing to a person and leave and ever lasting impact on his or her life. Today in this article, i am going to talk about one such journey of mine, which was for few hours but have left an everlasting impact on my mind forever.

Delhi metro services- one of the best and the most commonly used transportation means in Delhi, it do not need and sort of introduction. But for the ones who don’t know it, let me tell you- few decades back METROS were once those trains which can only be seen in discovery channel or in some hi-fi  foreign magazines and in developed nations.But now, it is  a part and parcel of daily routine of people in India (especially in Delhi). It carries thousands of people having million of dreams in their eyes, some shattered  hopes, some carrying the new ray of hope while others are just clueless about their ACTUAL DESTINATION of life.

One day i was going to Delhi and  was as usual travelling in metro. I was standing in the extreme corner and started to observe different people (you find some really funny people here).I could see hundred of faces in which some were few were busy reading news paper/magazines, some lost in another world of music,some were late for office, some were eagerly waiting for next person to get up so that they can hop on to their seat (MEAN!! isn’t it ) , some even offered their seats to the needy (and maximum of them took it off from them) while  the rest of them were busy making their own dream castles. (Oh god! the whole scenario was so hilarious)

Like any other station, metro halted at this station too, people pushed themselves out and others helped themselves to move inside moving aside the huge crowd and as the doors of the metro were about to close-  four ladies out of nowhere just jumped inside the train. They couldn’t help themselves and were laughing out loud on the brave (although that was stupid – Never try this at home :p ).They all had a spark on their face, a sizzling smile and a beauty that attracted everyone in the coach.

Observing from a distance, i could see them moving their hands so abruptly, talking and laughing-their expression was conveying all the message and i was finding it all so fascinating. “Two women can never stay quite” -source: unknown (no offence). This quote however proved to be partially wrong on them. Partially wrong?  You wonder what do i mean by it – right?

Here you go- these ladies were just like any other women-they had kids, had to cook food daily as per the liking of the family, take care of their daily needs, handle their job issues, bring joy in the family .  spend time with them and most important of all- try to built a new identity for herself without losing the respect , care and support of her family and friends. BUT!! That’s not all-these ladies in any of the normal language were incapable to speak or hear, but in my perception and according to me they were BLESSED by god and gifted by a special talent to – EXPRESS. We all are able to speak, write, listen and even talk but many of us are unable to EXPRESS themselves. While this talent or rather gift was with each of them. They neither had boundary of words, any language nor do they had any sort of vacuum lying among them. With their graceful hand moments and dark, strong yet very intense face expressions they were able to convey their message so beautifully.

They did not need any verbal promise or any sort of affidavit- they were mutually bonded together with the bind if love, friendship and above all the bond of oneness. Their carefree nature took my heart. As they sat close to me, i could even observe them better which made me feel so comfortable around them. They were shining bright and igniting the whole place with their spark.

The whole journey with them lasted for just about 30 minutes but this have left an everlasting impression on my heart. Now i strongly believe that god is never UNFAIR to anyone, If he takes away something, he surely gives something else to you- all you need is to understand your strong point and turn your weakness to your strong character so that no one can ever underestimate you.

Always remember “ No one in this whole world have the power to make you feel low or small, unless you give them the right to attack or an opportunity to be dominating on you.” In those 30 minutes- i learnt a new lesson of my life and those four ladies became an inspiring soul for me. Similarly, we should always do such things which inspire others and encourage them to do the right things.

 

This article hereby i dedicate to those four strangers who in a 30 minute journey became a source of inspiration for the rest of my life.

FACEBOOK

Here I am writing a blog on one of the top rated and most used social site FACEBOOK. One of my blogger friend Sahil Mehta asked me to write on. Hope you enjoy it.

 

A wonderful web of gossip and lies

Lead to addiction & took over on our lives.

The regular social network race

Makes people meet in the cyberspace.

 

A network that’s trendy and in good look

Is called the mighty – FACEBOOK.

It took me a little while

To fill most of my profile.

 

Rising sun or the dark night

Facebook status has to be right.

Frequency of chat increases to double,

When exams are approaching and head is in trouble.

 

No matter you sneeze, sick or fall in love

Update a status which is liked by some.

Some douche, some cool while some were best,

Here I get some never ending friend request.

 

Now it’s a tough time

I am going on a vacation.

But let me first check

If I have any notification.

 

Like candle to a flame

It’s always the same.

Logging out is not easy

Even if you’re too busy.

 

Ending up the day on computer screen

Is it really enjoyable or is it now a routine?

When I wish not to chat online

I turn my facebook on a mode called “OFFLINE”.

 

Facebook has done some good deed

It had helped many in need.

Now they say they do not smoke

They rather go to facebook and poke.

 

Facebook have got me

And it will never be done.

One question still to be answered to

You’re using me Or Am I using you?


Ok you won and I lose the fight

Because I cannot live without a glance on your site.

But there is a world that I have to face

A world away from social networking and cyberspace.

 

A world that’s real and more intense

A world that hides its 6th sense.

Facebook is a blessing in itself complete

It connects me to friends that I’ll ever meet.

 

The social networking is all so confusing

Has become an addiction, hard to get rid of using.

One question still to be answered to

You’re using me Or Am I using you?

HAPPY EARTH DAY!!

On this EARTH DAY! Here I am writing a letter on behalf of mother “earth” to god! Hope you guys understand her feelings. Let’s get together, join our hands and pray as well as do something for our mother who have been caring us for 1000 of decades. Its our time to pay her back. Happy Earth Day! Have a great weekend!

Dear god (the ultimate power),

Hi, how are you? Hope you are doing great! Remember last time we talked, it was some 1000 years back when I told you, that my womb is carrying some of the most beautiful things. Some dweeling baby seeds, some milching animals, some dew dropped flowers and buds yet to be flourished, the mighty mountains, the swift rivers and the most astonoshing creature of all was a small crying baby- I called him human.

I loved them so much. They were the only thing I called my treasure. It was so good to look them playing with the branches of my trees, splashing my river’s water all around, cultivating me to grow so many vegetables and give a new life and you were so happy with me. But my dear god! What had happened to you now? You no more talk to me? Neither do you see my pain nor hear my crying?

Where is the innocence of my baby (human) have changed so much? Why have devil dominated on my angels? Why an I not able to breath in this smoke filled universe? What is making them harm me? Was my care not good enough to make them feel my love or did they felt isolated when I was around?

My branches, my rivers, my mountains , my land that once used to be my crown of glory and now destroyed. And devastated badly! The black clouds full of tears keeps pouring his pain to me. My heart has become weak, I cannot see more pain and destruction any more. I will not be able to survive more in this selfish world.

Oh god! I request you, please talk to me. Please try to feel my pain and see what have I become now? A woman with a shine is now burnt with her own sparkle! I wish things are back to normal. Please my dear god! Tell my kids that I love them a lot. Tell them that by harming me they are harming themselves and I cannot see my babies in pain anymore.

Its my birthday today! All I want peace and happiness and. World to be a better place to be lived again! Hope you will not disappoint me and present me with this precious gift on my birthday!

Love,
Earth

I want a guy

 

I don’t want a guy, of whom girls are jealous,

I want a guy who is just so marvellous.

A guy that always looks for me,

A guy whom I always want to see

. A guy who moves down the hallway on tile,

Makes the eye contact and we both smile.

A guy who hold me in public with full confidence,

And says I was in his stars, not met by coincidence.

I want a guy who sees me at my worse,

And makes me laugh with his silly verse.

I don’t want a promise to lower the sky,

I want a guy together with whom I can just fly.

Glancing at the stars, laying on his chest,

His heart would be my forever nest.

I want a guy with whom I can act silly,

And shout on the paths so hilly.

I want a guy who looks in my eyes,

Says that he loves me with glitter and shines.

I want a guy to be forever mine,

And the love grows on with the passing time.

The love is kind and a special feeling,

I hope I find him who knows the dealing.

Stay loved forever and always,

And get the one made for me by anyways.

That moment..

Hello friends! I am not writing any poem or an article, today’s post is about some sweet incidents that one have certainly been through in his or her lifetime. These moments bring out the emotional side of us and makes us realise how close a person is and what is the actual importance of that person in our life. Below mentioned are the moments that I have experienced (and I keep experiencing them always), I would love to hear your stories too. Feel free to comment and tell me your stories if they match with mine or not.

So some of those special moments are as stated below:

  1. That “AWWW..” moment – when you had the biggest of all fights with your best friend/boy friend/girl friend and you tell them that it’s all over and you don’t want to talk to them anymore; and after some time he/she comes up to you with a cute little puppy face and tell you that “I AM SORRY! IT WON’T HAPPEN AGAIN. I LOVE YOU STUPID! PLEASE TALK TO ME!  ❤
  2. That silly moment when you are out wearing a fresh trousers. You go to your relative’s place and play with your little baby niece/nephew and as soon as you move him/her in the air and then put him/her on your lap he/she makes your pants wet. 😀
  3. That childhood moment when everything is cool in the school and one day you get absent. When you come back another day you find your best friend have fought with the coolest guy in the class and you also start boycotting him for no reason other than-“HOW COULD HE/SHE FIGHT WITH YOU. LET’S SHOW HIM/HER WHO THE BEST IS?”
  4. That embarrassing moment when the person you love is sitting beside you and talking to you, then he/she suddenly asks- “SO.. WHO IS YOUR CRUSH THESE DAYS?”
  5. That emotional moment when you have done something wrong and have got beaten up by your mother. Your eyes are red filled with tears, face swollen up and you are not eating anything. Suddenly you feel a hand moving slowly on your head and a shrill voice of your mother saying “WHY DO YOU DO ALL THESE STUFFS, YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU. COME ON NOW HAVE SOME WATER AND LET’S EAT YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD TOGETHER”
  6. That moment when you get up late in the morning, rush to the bathroom and get ready for the school/college and suddenly you realize –“OH DAMN! IT’S A HOLIDAY!”
  7. That moment when you stop on the signal and a pretty girl stands next to you and you both pass a sweet smile. ❤ ❤
  8. That moment when you fight with your friends for the last slice of pizza, or last sip of the coke. The moment when you laughing out badly holding your stomach when your friend has fallen down in the public.
  9. That moment when your teacher asks you to leave the class and you proudly walk out of the class saying “HUH! I WON!”
  10. That moment when you call a girl at midnight just to tell her how beautiful she is but you end up saying” PLEASE GET YOUR SCIENCE NOTES TOMORROW, I NEED TO COPY THEM. GOOD NIGHT.”

There are lot of such moments which I can write here and just keep on writing instead but more that writing what matters is- the memories attached with every single moment. So come on guys, let’s share some sweet moments and cherish those beautiful time we have spent (not that the good time is finished).

रुके ना तू झुके ना तू… (an effort to write in Hindi)

रुके ना तू झुके ना तू,

बन जा आंधी, की फिर थमे ना तू |

मन् मे ज्वाला जलने दे,

सपनो की नगरी बसने दे |

हुई जो भूल तो माफी मांग,

ळे चल साथ हाथ तू थाम |

ये राह है कांटो भरी,

हिम्मत ना हार है मुश्किल घड़ी |

सिसक सिसक के आह भर,

आज तो कुछ ऐसा कर गुजर |

देखे जहान देखे जमाना,

कुछ कार्य ऐसा कर दिखाना |

चींटी से सीख तू आगे बढना,

वृक्षों से सीख तू चांव देना |

हिमालय की चोटी सा चमक,

सूरज की किरनों सा दमक |

गंगा के जैसा बन पवित्र,

दिखा दे अपना तू चरित्र |
 बुलंद आवाज अपनी कर दिखाना,

जग को अंधेरे से तुझे है बचाना |

गुनाह की दुनिया से निकल,

कुछ कर गुजर कुछ कर गुजर |

बन जा शिव, दुर्गा या चण्डी,

पापीयों ने की है अब दुनिया ये गन्दि |

 

आगे देख बस चलता जा,

बन के तूफान तू बढता जा |

रुके ना तू झुके ना तू,

बन जा आंधी, की फिर थमे ना तू |

मन् मे ज्वाला जलने दे,

सपनो की नगरी बसने दे |

हुई जो भूल तो माफी मांग,

ळे चल साथ हाथ तू थाम |

Girl’s Loudest Cry…

She is special, she is wise,

She is born with dreams in her eyes.

Chocolates, candies or cheese,

Is all that takes to make her please.

Strong determined yet a free spirit.

Dancing in the pouring rain,

Makes her forget all her pain.

Sparkling eyes and lips so glossy,

At times she pretends to be so bossy.

Treated like a puppet, by the hands of world,

Moves back to back from head to toe.

Abused and beaten she’s left on her own,

Her smiles and giggles are forever gone.

Where is lost- a face so calm?

A motherly love, a lover’s charm?

Break the silence and come out of shell.

You’re not sent for granted,

You are here because you are wanted.

Not here to dance, not here to please,

With beauty and brain let’s make them cease.

Don’t let them think that you don’t try,

Because silence is a girl’s loudest cry.

Together you stand and fight all odds,

You’re an angel from heaven’s squad.

Speak loud; don’t let your voice dye,

Because silence is a girl’s loudest cry.

Look them direct in eyes and ask them why?

The silence is a girl’s loudest cry.

Take a chance and do not sigh,

Because silence is a girl’s loudest cry.

you suppose

 

You suppose you’re disease

But you’re the cure.

You suppose you’re devil

But you’re the guardian angel.

You suppose you’re fire which burns people

But you’re the light that ignites lamps.

You suppose you’re gravity which pulls things down

But you’re actually the PUSH required to move out of shell.

You suppose you’re night hiding the secrets in his arms

But you’re the light waiting to glow up bright.

You suppose you don’t fit in

But you’re the one free from all sins.

Life is never what one expects

People grown and dreams shatter.

With every step you take ahead

Thousands hands will pull you back.

Never lose hope, never fall down

Because you are special and one of a kind.

You’re smile spread fragrance in budding flowers

You’re eyes shine  bright in days of scars.

Be a myth buster

Not one among the cluster.

Wake up! and see the beauty around

the blooming flowers and fragrant ground.

Calling you by to feel and play

In the beauty of  nature come let’s stay.
