A smile – it sets many a curves right.
A look at the face that gives the smile though will tell things a little different. How to know if the smile from the lips is from deep within? Very simple indeed, just life up your gaze to the eyes. What do the eyes tell? Are they smiling?
If yes then indeed the smile is from the heart.
But the truth the eyes tell is explicit
only to those who really care about the owner of those eyes.

letting go

Does letting go by bowing down a little
for our loved ones mean we are
paving way to demean ourselves?

How long is life? Here this instant, gone the next instant and sometimes that very instant.
So life can be said the period between Birth and Death. And this could be an instant, a second or for that matter many years. A beautiful gift from God is this Life. So what and how exactly are we going to utilise life so that we could say our life has been worthwhile living? How are we going to show our gratitude to God who presented us with this lovely gift? We should think and act very fast, for before we realise it could be gone forever.
Life - after all is never eternal

One performing a self-purification rite....oh what could be done..... jump into a fire like Sitadevi did?????
News creating sensations...when a new one comes then down goes the old one into the pit....deep inside....just so that at a later stage we can dig and awaken the emotions in people, just to put them back into the pit.
No wonder we have scheming people playing with emotions of the ignorant ones

Old Age

Old age is really a threatening stage in human life.
More so if the health condition - physically and/or mentally is at stake.
Add to it - if there is no one to care for them.
Old age is really a threatening stage.

empty handed into this world we came
empty handed we would depart from here
yet we want to grasp all the material pleasures
denying ourselves the real meaning of life

therein creating a vacuum that can never be filled

Crossing the threshold

So many years of this life and still trying to come near the threshold
forget about crossing it.

Right or Left

When on road - Just like in war - it does not matter who is right
all that matters is ultimately who is left.

Our Actions

We relate our real life actions to something that is shown in reel life. Sometimes we relate it to others around us and then we console ourselves that it is alright for having done something that ought not be done. Perfect human beings we are.

When so many thoughts yell in the mind
unpleasant flashbacks scream from the heart
and once in a while they are vented out,
probably the only way to pass through
would be to remain silent and let it go.

Strange is it not, we amass a lot of treasure – expensive and priceless ones.
And stack them all away due to the fear of it being stolen.

understand each other so well.

When I tell something in a jovial manner, you consider it serious or sarcastic.
When you tell something in a jovial manner, I consider it serious or sarcastic.
Where exactly is the so called “very good understanding” between us.

That which one loves and cherishes from the depth of one's heart
is exactly what another might abhor from the depth of their heart.

Love - a beautiful feeling experienced from deep within our hearts. Yet we look up the dictionary for the correct meaning. And try to assess its value.

It is from our dearest that we receive and to the dearest that we show the meanest side of our character to the extent of being hurt/hurting them deeply.
So do we be happy that we are considered the dearest or feel sad because of the deep pain inflicted?

rivalry or unbreakable bond

A few months and a few families was all that was needed for a conflict and misunderstanding - Oh god...why so I mused.
I realized for rivalry to begin it is not few months or few families that are needed...all it needs is a few seconds and two people.
All depends on how we channelize our mind.
If positively taken then it would take just few seconds and two people to create an unbreakable bond too. Are we willing to take that?

just a thought

When in Rome do as the Romans do (St.Ambrose)
so goes the saying....
well....we also seem to be following this -
When Romans are here do as they do.

I always thought and felt my hurt is the most painful and sometimes just unbearable. But when my friends and others living around come to me pouring out their sorrow and hurt, I realized mine is just nothing. I can go past the hurt I am undergoing. God has been very gentle to me.

The love our dear ones have for us is very much explicit
when we have to undergo unbearable pain.

false praise

How good is a false praise?
What effect does it have?

And how good is a false praise,
when it is so very openly visible.

It is really sad and disheartening if and when a mother has to lure her children for love and be affectionate towards her.

Saw the post in Shravan's blog on NOW and this just popped in my mind. Not even sure whether there is such a quote or if it just got made in my mind. Whatever I just liked it.

Live for the present in the best way that you can,
future will unfurl beautifully for you.

forgetting and forgiving

when we have the heart to forget those who made us smile
why don't we have the heart to forgive those who made us cry.

If I am liked/loved it should be for what I am or I am not, be it in goodness, attitude etc and not just because I happen to be better than someone not so good. (in comparison)

There is a marked difference in the love and affection shown by the people from the different ends of the umbilical cord.

Supernatural beings and superstitions, I don’t believe in them. Hmmm but I sure don’t have the courage to openly state my feelings or views. What if it is heard by them and they come out to get me or something evil strikes me.

just listen

All that people want is a listening board. A listening board that listens with rapt attention and responds with remarks like - oh really good…… that is wonderful…… are amazing etc. when something positive is told. And - oh my god.....why did that happen to you.....oh you poor little thing…. I know you are not at fault....why should life be so cruel to you etc. when something negative or sad is told. But remember, something to this effect is only to be responded. Think before you decide to give suggestions/solutions/advice that do seem reasonable. Remember you are only needed as a listening board and not an advising board.

A random thought

I have a right to my thoughts. They may be good, they may not. They may be right, they may not. If my thoughts are not right or good, then I have the option of either understanding where it is not right and correcting it. I also have the option of accepting suggestions given by near and dear ones and correcting. I also have the option of just leaving the topic.

If my thoughts are right and good, I could share them with my near and dear ones. But it should be left to them to accept or not. I should not thrust it down their throat just because I feel it right or good.

I should remember that what is right and good for me need not necessarily be the same for others. I should give them their living space...and not live life for them.

(The word “I” usually implies a feeling of ego in a person. But here I felt it better to use the word to teach myself a lesson.)

Strange it is if the value and popularity

of an individual is assessed

by the number of people who pays a visit

Fear of Death

Fear of Death

I realised it is not facing death as such that creates panic in our hearts. It is the trauma and pain that we might have to undergo physically and/or mentally that creates panic and fear in our heart and mind to the extent of not wanting to face death at all. But ultimately we have to face it no matter what..
