Time, you never spare
You heal or you bare
But it’s not that you be the same
Now and then
Only you move towards the age.
Where you keep the silent tear
During the ocean of fear
Keep my little drops of zest
to heal me
Or to bear.
Your or mine
Life is like a bottle of wine.
With years and years
It comes stronger
the taste, the smell, or the color.
A huge void is everywhere today. We don’t know where we are heading to. The void due to uncertainty of life, the void due to fear of losing someone is today’s reality. Keeping distance is the medicine of today’s illness. Gone are days when we celebrate togetherness.
Life indoors is more difficult to carry on. But we are helpless because we can not see our enemy. Was it our destiny? Millions of people taking their last breath because breathing is now the most expensive thing. Can we just play hide and seek or stand fearless in front of this pandemic?
Today being positive is no more positive. But we are positive, Positive towards a new dawn. Who will bring this new light? We together or alone? Let’s keep aside all the fear and anxiety and think about whom you are carrying in your heart now and then. Distances can not stop you to carry someone in your heart.
Although there is silence everywhere, we are still busy in our lives. We have many great deals on our heads. What will happen next? We are busy with our frustration, we are busy with our plans, gossip, anger and more. Relax and ask yourself, when there is a better option then why are all these keeping us busy? Yes, there is a better option to stay busy and it is you. You can find yourself in a new way. Listen to your heart and body, it has been whispering to you for many years. Do not ignore it as before. Spread love and care and start it with yourself.
There is no end of thoughts…to be continued..
She scolds me,
Mama, still the spoons are messy…
Looking at me, with care
She use to say, “Mama, why you are becoming fatty?”
Oh, my young lady, you are the one
For whom I am always busy.
Tieing your hair, I often she
You are the one, who reflects me.
Every day your hundreds of questions and the most loving one is, “Mama when you’ll grow up, what do you wanna be?”
I say Mama grew up already.
Now the time is to look you growing happy.
Then she asks, “when I’ll grow up will you be able to recognize me?”
Of course my dear….
“But if I become Pikachu I guess you won’t
Stay as my mummy.”
Here is my turn to be surprised entirely.
A little thing can work big. A tiny word has a strong meaning. And there is a book, which can change the way of living.
Love for books is quite different. Because you are addicted to something good. A meaningful and remarkable book can steal your time like a wind. If you are a reader you acknowledge this.
On this particular day, I think people need to develop a reading habit to come out of rolling gadgets. A book never deceives you, a book never makes you feel lonely. To feed your mind, to express your self-taught, no doubt, a book is the best option. Choice is yours.
It may be a comic or a heavy biography, it may be a simple storybook or a novel, it doesn’t matter. What you love to read, that matters. It’s my opinion. What do you think about it?
It is a big dilemma that… life is short when you like it and life becomes very long when you do not enjoy it. Above all, we live life with joy and grief, with struggle and glory. It has many stages but we live so many times to die once. Just after birth, we start to play many roles. A script has written for you where you have to play many roles and you may not get the best performer award, you may not be the superstar but still, you can sparkle like a star.
It was difficult for me to stay away from what I love. Without reading and writing, I was just struggling with my hard days due to bad health conditions. But there was something that always realizes me pick up stones of my path and built a staircase to step upwards.
Although life is not a bed of roses. Hardships are there to make or to break you, but nobody is there without testing life’s hardship. In my hard time, I prefer to read and repeat these beautiful lines in life.
“Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.”- Paulo Coelho
“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.”- Og Mandino
” In tough times, everyone has to take their share of the pain.”-Theresa May
Life goes on…
Thanks for reading😊
Do women need a special day to celebrate? I always have this question in my mind. Every day should be women’s day, men’s day, humans’ day. But to celebrate it especially, of course, go with it. Adore all ladies in your life a little more on this day or thank them for their existence, which makes a difference in your life.
But where are the women today? Are they happy to say a “Happy women’s day”? It’s been a long way since women fighting with enormous foes to live with dignity. When they transform a house into a home, when giving birth to a life, when they prepare a meal, have they been saluted for all? Why they need a special treat when every second a woman dies for a dowry when every day a girl child is killed in a womb of a woman itself. The way a woman said goodbye on the bank of the river Sabarmati was one of the cruel truths of today’s society. Is she one and only, no,there are millions of women still waiting for a river Sabarmati to accept her.
Time has been changed. The brain is added with beauty. When she, the woman starts to believe in herself and opens her wings to fly high, stop dragging her to her odds.
She, the woman, not just a body. Respect her existence and let the mother sleep peacefully rather than haunt her with that worry of hiding her daughter from the hungry eyes which measure her statistics.
To be very honest, I am a woman and that’s my gender, not my specialty. When you have to celebrate women’s hood, establish equality, and celebrate humanity. Don’t ask a man for it, ask yourself when and how you feel as a woman that you should be treated equally by society. Before everything smashed between feminism and pseudo feminism I want to choose today and always humanism proudly.
But above all, if there is a little way to celebrate life and never miss the opportunity. Be happy to say Happy women’s day to the world where women still live with uncertainty.
I love to spread positivity to make life beautiful but on this special day, I didn’t find any option rather than to show a bit of reality. It’s my point of view, but still, I respect each and everyone’s emotions. You may not think like me but you and I always “we”. We…we are women, we are human.

Hope shouldn’t die
If you want to fly,
To touch the sky
With your soul.
Who knows you?
Wings that come
From your sanity
There is something
Who drags you
To the mud
But if you see
A little sapling
Always looks up,
Though it knows
The sky never comes to it
Still, it grows
Looking up the high.
Never claim it as poetry just I am trying to express my thoughts poetically.
I am hopeful. Looking up the high. Miles to go and lets hope never die.
Whenever I looked up the sky in my childhood, I thought who paints it. The blue and white colour of the sky always fascinated me. I learned in childhood, the sky teaches us about comprehensive thinking. I was advised to look up the sky at least once a day.
This was my first learning to be a broad-minded person. One world and we are all connected because we are under the same sky. The same sky who teaches us to be wide. It is the witness of our struggles and commitments. Our laugh and grief, our shadow and glow are never hidden from it. We know the sky has no limits. This is how the sky inspires us to be optimistic. It makes us more positive about life. We learn to dream big, fly high or keep peace from the sky. The sky teaches us, just as the cloud cannot conceal the sun, in the same way, nothing can conceal the truth.
Don’t ignore the learning from the sky that leads to a new awakening. Here I am listing some highly motivating quotes that l have collected from the internet and these quotes are truly inspiring to me, I am sure you will find it invaluable.

8.” The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson
9.” Even when the sky is filled with the clouds, the sun still shines above.”-Janet Donaghy
10.”There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.”-Victor Hugo
11.” It is written on the arched sky; it looks out from every star. It is the poetry of nature; it is that which uplifts the spirit within us.”-John Ruskin

15.”Life is the night sky, all the dots of stars are happiness.”-Richard L. Ratliff

17.” You are the sky. Everything else is just the weather.”-Prema Chodron
