Waqt kaha…

time

Ulaj gaye sab apne kaam mein
Nahi pata kya milta hai aaram mein
Ab woh choti choti baaton par,
Muskurane k liye waqt kaha…

Khushi k pal mann mein reh gaye
Kaam karte karte din dhal gaya
Par woh pyaar bhari baatein karne k liye,
Apno k liye waqt kaha…

Mausam k badalte rehte hai roop
Kabhi thandi toh kabhi aa jaati hai dhoop
Par woh khuli hawa mein,
Saas lene k liye waqt kaha…

Life Lesson from Angel : Episode 4

It’s very surprising! Who is she? Where has she come from? Is she the supernatural power? Is she an angel? Is she a God in the form of the mother? I don’t have answers to any of these. But one thing I know for sure – she understands everything without me saying anything. She exactly knows who am I. She knows what I am good at. She knows what I am bad at. She knows what I am fearful of. She knows each and every bit of me so much so that she forgets who she is.

One day morning I was wandering, feeling restless. Without questioning, she understood what exactly was going on in my mind. She directly said, “Is that a new design assignment which is troubling you?” I was dumbstruck. “How did she come to know?”, I wondered. The emotion which I was holding for so long was unmasked in the blink of an eye. I broke down. She called me beside her and explained me, “Fear will always keep you away from trying challenging things. Try things with happiness and keep the carefree attitude. Tell others that you get pressurized when people pounce on you to get things done. Tell them you are vulnerable to certain things. But at the same time put you heart and mind entirely in solving the problem. If you ain’t able to solve, don’t get demoralized. Ask for one more day. Ask people if you don’t understand anything. Communicate with them. Handle it courageously. Running away from things is not the solution. Life will always look messy until you get your hands dirty and remove the mess.”.

This was one of the life lessons which I learned from my mom. My heart got relaxed from her warmth and at the same time my body was all warmed up to get me started!

Love you maa 🙂

Life Lesson from Angel : Episode 4

Make a comeback!

When certain decisions make you feel stupid
Face your mistake and correct it
Feel braver and try to dissect it.
It may feel like a thorn in your flesh
But once the wound is healed you will feel blessed.

Don’t judge yourself and be too harsh
It’s loving you which will heal all the scars.
When situations are not in your control
Think about what is the ultimate goal.

When circumstances draw you to a vicious cycle
Planning is something which becomes really vital.
Cushion yourself from the loss
Think twice before the road you cross.

Bounce back on your feet
Be so strong that no one can defeat.
Go from rocking bottom to up away
and save something for the rainy day.

Map your terrain,
Enjoy the journey,
Keep the head high,
It’s life,
Make a comeback!

Beginnings

Beginning of new year
Freshen ups the body, mind and soul
The touch of gentle winter winds is rejuvenating me.
Travelling along the roads,
Occupied with my thoughts,
Celebrating wonderful start of the year,
Reading books, my true friend
Life has found its real purpose.

Beginnings

Wake! Run! Win!

Everyone’s expectations was letting him down
When he failed people used to frown.
Getting upset when he was on the verge of quitting
All around him the words started echoing…
Oh you boy! Wake
Before the opportunity falls into the lake
Leave aside whatever is fake
Try out and grab your piece of cake.

While he learnt to keep moving
He discovered that people were actually running.
Getting fearful when he was on the verge of quitting
All around him the words started echoing…
Oh you boy! Run
Before the fire triggers from the gun.
Leave aside all the fun
Try out everything under the sun.

When he thought that it was smartness which he lacked
It was fear and self doubt that was holding him back
Getting depressed when he was on the verge of quitting
All around him the words started echoing…
Oh you boy! Win
Before you break apart from within
Leave aside all the fear before you begin
Try out and show your glowing grin.
