Our Second Birth




Still it is like a dream …. I can not believe I had a terrible accident on 14th Oct. when we were going Udaipur by car. Our car hit the rock and turned upside down…. Oh my God!!! It was my first experience of car accident –but it was superb llolzz.. For a fraction of second I felt everything is going to end …I remembered my all friends and started wondering how they will react if they get to know that I am dead..llolzz.. But after 10 mins I was very normal … same easy going…clicking photos … cracking jokes at such a time Can’t help it ! And after some hours I just forgot everything that happened… All seemed like a bad dream! Whenever we think of that moment we realize that what could happen with us but Thanks to God we all are safe .It is just by God’s grace that me and my whole family is alive --- No doubt it is our Second Birth.
Jai Shree Krishna !

From her eyes

She could look straight into the sun’s eyes because she thought that she loved sun and trusted her so he won’t harm her, how stupid she was. From her eyes everything seems full of love , energy and life. She was my best friend so I knew her (at least I thought so) but my other classmates found her as mysterious as the pyramids of Egypt or as a Chirag of Aladin. Really! Sometimes even I found her very enigmatic. She seems like a labyrinth --- a dark , mysterious maze … you go into it … searching for something… but you are trapped .. you are lost…. She was like a puzzle … and I tried to solve it many times but I could only find two or three dark holes of this puzzle.

The dark side of Meera was too dark … and was totally unacceptable for me initially…I even started hating her. The dark side was – her heart’s one part which was convinced that she was doing something terribly wrong especially with her life and especially in relationship’s matters. How could one understand such cynicism but no she was convinced and kept punishing herself. At that time, I was too prejudiced and immature to understand what troubled her … I was inexperienced too as she used to say. I thought she was doing nothing “terribly” wrong , she was just another normal girl who made friends or boyfriends , did chatting , night – outs , picnics , one-night stand , dreamed to live in live-in relationship …and so on. What was wrong in that? Every girl of her age does such inane things. But she had a problem – she used to think a lot… about philosophy of life , about right and wrong , truth and false , karma and punarjanama … She said she was in search of something --- what was that thing? “Love”, she would say affectionately . She was into many relationships… all were not normal ,all did not end happily, few were really weird sort of --- but in all relationships two things were common – The true search of Love and no regret of past. Regret , I think , was surely somewhere in her heart but I don’t think they affected her for long time… her boon was she could easily forget her traumatic past , learn from it and move on in her life.

Yesterday I got a call from Meera . I suppose she had cried a lot before she called me because her sound was so composed and calm. After some formal baseless talk she told me abruptly that she has realized something. I asked her what was that? She said she was about to do a big mistake of her life but she is saved now. Her realization was that the man with whom she had open relationship doest not love her and is totally detached from her. She knew this but she didn’t realize it earlier and now suddenly something made her think about this. I thought she must be sad so I tried to console her but she was too excited and sort of happy as a child would have been to find answer of some difficult question. She sounded as if she has found some treasure. I asked her what made her happy in such unhappy situations? She said she has learned something from this - learned from what? A stupid relationship , a selfish man ?? She replied quietly , Anu , everything has its price. What I learned from him I had to give him something in return and so its not as bad , is it? She said in same smooth voice , “ Anu , I am afraid I am trying to go deep into love , finding different meanings of love , I might end up in destroying my life but I am happy Anu.” …. “ Anu , we all are seekers , some seek money , some power , some a balanced life , I seek love … Love is the only aim of my life . And Anu without risks , without falling , failing how can you think that someone can achieve something. And in love even pain teaches you a lot.” At this moment her voice choked… before she could speak another syllable my battery got low and phone was switched off . I slept well in the night without thinking about Anu but in the morning when I woke up with the rays of sun piercing through my eyes … my whole perception was changed , suddenly I was not irritated at sun rays , I was feeling them on my body … I was smiling … the sun seemed so lovely today… ohhh what’s happening with me?? … I was looking everything from Meera’s eyes ---- Its so full of love and only love.

Home-


Some words are like water in spoon while some contains whole ocean in them. Home is such a word – so vast and so deep is its meaning. When you look up in dictionary for this word , you will only find direct and exact meaning – ‘residence or native place’ but in literature as well as in life Home word has different connotations . Home , the word instantly gives the feelings of comfort , ease , warmth , affection ,care , love etc. etc.

What is a Home? Where is it found? One should better ask these questions to those who are living away from their homes. If we don’t talk about the general characteristics or significance of Home , like home made food … obviously its so delicious and yummy that one can not forget it even though if he lives on five start hotel’s food , but there is something more about Home. When I wander here and there , go for shopping , walk in parks and when I am on way to home – just the sight of my colony brings in homely feelings with it… I feel safer ,secure , happy . When you are with strangers , suddenly the sight of a friend gives you unknown happiness , you feel you are at home.

Home is certainly related to family so , I ask , What is a Family? Family is your parents , kids , siblings , blood relatives , love and friends . Whenever and wherever you are with them , its your home. Even those who are close to Nature they feel at home around nature.

By the way why I am writing about Home? Perhaps because tomorrow I am leaving for my home . Really what I had till 12th I did not realize it then but now I have learned , I have learned the value of Home . And now when I am here I try to value my new place , after all its my new Home . Isn’t it?

Sukh & Dukh



“…Sheetoshna Sukhdukheshu samah sangvivarjitah”

It is a sholka of Bhagwad Gita. It says God likes those people who are same in Ushna(hot whether) Sheetoshna ( Cold ) , Sukh (happiness) and Dukh (Dissappointments) . How true and meaningful it is , though I did not realize it earlier. I even used to wonder why to be equal in both sukh and dukh? Why it is necessary? Although it is good that you are calm and composed in your hard times but why not to be excited when you are really happy? The answer which I found to these questions was that being equal in both phases suggests that you are balanced in your life and this balance naturally brings peace with it.

Change is an essential quality of human life as well as nature’s. And learn to be composed in both your triumphs and failures suggest that you are aware of this change. Because it’s a cycle – you are happy today but remember tomorrow might not be your day. When some one is aware of this change he will neither be too excited nor two depressed , he knows this is only a phase and – It will pass. For me two words really help to be same in both situations , these are – Think and Wait .

Wake up Sid!


4.10.9

Wake up Sid !

Good morning to those whose eyes have been opened by this movie. Good morning to those who just woke up from a long slumber and realized what they have lost and what now they can achieve. Good morning to those who came to know what their dreams are and what will give them happiness. A very good morning to all of those who know what they are and not only their eyes but their heart has opened as well.

Today is Sunday and we celebrated it by watching Wake up Sid . I carefully used the word celebrated because that is what I really mean. I would like to thank Bollywood and Karan Johar for in last few months perhaps it was the only worthy movie to waste your money on.

There are two schools in literature both in Hindi as well as in English literature – one is “Art’s for Art’s sake” and other is “Art’s for Society’s sake”. Those who belonged to the first school they believed that Art’s only aim is to provide pleasure and it should be treated only as arts and nothing else. They were far from the reality of life and thus their literature was hollow . And those who belonged to the other school they believed that arts and literature has a purpose . They are made for human beings, not that human beings are made for them. So their literature was for society’s welfare and to show the absurd and harsh realities of life. When we see today’s cinema we can clearly notice the same classification. Some movies are made just to entertain , they give little to ponder upon and to worse , they are not even made artistically. While some movies throw a last long impression upon us. They teach us something , they inspire us in our life and we are touched by them. In Bollywood the ratio of such movies are unfortunately still less and the main reason of it is that we don’t have good original writers.

Coming back to the movie , I would like to say that yes it inspired me a lot . I was one who had little idea of what gave me pleasure and what is my dream , but now I know – I know what I would love to do my whole life. Besides this , I think the characters of the story were really something – something real – something original. And I must say both actors played their role very well and took out the character splendidly. The simplicity of actions and story is almost magical. You are really spellbound to see the simplicity of their love ; the most complex emotion in the universe. And secretly you dream of experiencing this magic yourself.

Sounds of Footsteps

29.9.9
Sounds of Footsteps

I hear footsteps at my door …
I wait…
I pray…
But no one comes in.

Two pairs of shoes
Slip inside the room
Forget to bolt the door
A touch shivers my body
I turn back
Thinking my prayers are heard at last
But – What! No one
Was it a dream then?

Again
The sounds of footsteps I hear
I fear…
Two pairs of shoes
Slip inside the room
Only to vanish again somewhere
I open my eyes with a sigh
But I don’t bolt the door…

I wait…
I pray…
They come
And go
But…
Still I hope
I believe
In the sounds of footsteps.
