The Poetry of the Earth is Never Dead. But We will SOON be...!!!

I wonder where the green grass went?
All buried under new cement.

I wonder where the birds have flown?
They've gone to find another home.

I wonder where the footpath's gone?
Right underneath your car, my son.

I wonder where the old folks go?
The Nursing homes will surely know.

What grows so fast before my eyes?
A garbage dump, a million flies.

Is this the place you celebrate?
In prose you made it sound so great!
It was ... before I knew it's fate.

- Ruskin Bond


If someone is not able to understand the intensity of the situation, then he/she will surely do so in a couple of decades from now. Soon you'll start getting old and someday when you'll be sitting on a chair outside your house to take some fresh air, there won't be any fresh air. How can it be there, there won't be any gardens left, there won't be any trees left. How can one expect fresh oxygen then...??? 

Nothing will be left around us but just many million tons piles of concrete rising hundreds or thousands of meters in the sky. When you'll raise your eyes to look towards the sky, you'll see concrete. When you'll lower your vision to look for some soft ground to walk, you'll see concrete.

You won't see any human beings moving around, you'll just see metal boxes - loaded with robots(in the shape of human) whose sole purpose is to complete the task given by their boss - running on some rubber tires pumping out loads of Carbon Dioxide out in the air around us.


I took this video few days back. The tree was just standing harmlessly at the side of the road, what harm was it doing...??? I don't know why it was cut down. Maybe God knows why...??? :-/

It takes minimum of around 3-5 years for growing a tree and with technologies today, its doesn't even take 30 seconds to cut down the tree.

John Keats once said:

"The poetry of the earth is never dead."

He was right and it will never be. If we unnecessarily poke the elements of nature which constitutes the poetry of earth or the sound of nature, nature will produce other ways to produce its sound of nature. But they might be disastrous also. Don't believe me, have a look. Already many places are getting effected by floods and droughts in a life threatening manner.

So remember, Poetry won't be dead, just instruments might change.

Many don't have "ANY" to celebrate "ANY" such "DAY"...!!!

All round the year we either don't talk about our parents, and when we do, half of the time we're like complaining that they don't understand us, keep correcting us, keep restricting us and similar other zillion types of complaints. But then suddenly on one day, all our hearts in the world come out overflowing with our love for our Father(on Father's Day) and for our Mother(on Mother's Day) that too only on social media.

That's how the young generation acts like. We'll see their posts every other day with adjectives like "baby", "sweetoo", "jaanu", etc... but never ever a post remembering parents, except those single days.

I'm not complaining. Neither I'm trying to act smart or older. I'm just quoting the fact which all of you will very much agree to, no matter how much you try to defend it.

However, there are many who don't get the privilege to celebrate any such day because they don't have any and there are few who don't get to celebrate because they keep hesitating to take an initiative in the same regards.

The unprivileged I'm talking about are those orphans who either lost their parents or somehow their real parents lost their minds and betrayed them. And the one who don't take initiative are those couples who somehow don't get to have a child, but don't take any initiatives to adopt one due to fear of the society.

Here is a short film inspired from a real incident from Iraq during the war...!!!

In India, since the day we were born, the first question which a child automatically learns to ask is "If we do something, what will the society say..??" You live in 21st century, You don't think about society when you go out and get doped, even get so much high that you can't even walk straight. Then why are you scared of comments from society when you want to improve and make a life prosperous...??? Adopting can bring smile and life back to normal for all the people involved...Just think about it once. For especially those who need it, don't think, just go ahead, don't hesitate...!!!

Anyways, coming back to where we started, hasn't it become more like a competition for "On such days, who can show their love for their parents in a better way using one on social networking?"

Guys, at least think before writing something for someone on just one day using just one post on social media, especially for those who are not even on that social media(like your parents, is true for many). Your friends will never go and tell your parents that your son/daughter loves you so much via social media. Even those who liked and commented on your post, they also won't. If you really love them, then there are much better ways to express your love any day than making these publicity stunts on single day. If you love your parents, then posting won't increase or decrease your love for them. But yeah, for regular attendants of FB, it will definitely increase the number of "likes" and "awww" on their profiles.

Its like when your FB friends see your birthday notification, then even those who doesn't even remember how many decades back last time they met you, will definitely wish you...!!!

PS: The post is just my thoughts... No offenses meant for anyone. ;)

PPS: But once again, Adopting will bring a smile and life back to normal for all the people involved...Just think about it once. For especially those who need it, don't think, just go ahead, don't hesitate...!!!

Nature's lullaby...!!!

All alone at the sea side,
She stares at the calm sea spreading wide.

Tired and exhausted,
She was totally flabbergasted.

With all the random thoughts in her brain that slurried,
She didn't knew what all thought are to be worried.

With so many around to care for her,
She never ever had any thoughts to bother.

Carelessly she used to roam around,
For years, never cared for any wounds.

Alas, to act carelessly, in her nature it was moulded,
For like a princess, she has always been treated.

Surprised and shocked by the sudden loneliness,
She tried to recover from weariness.

Only question that confused her slightly,
"Where has everyone gone and why was she left alone lately?"

But it wasn't her nature, that left her with no one around,
It was the NATURE around her, that left her with no one around.


PS: It was 3.5 hours for sketch and 1 hour of finishing touch...
It was 30 min for poem and 1 hour of finishing touch
and then finally 2 days for thinking about the title "Nature's lullaby" :P

STOP before it's TOO LATE TO APOLOGIZE...!!!

Charles Darwin once said "Survival of the fittest". Well I guess, now it's time to change the definition to: 

"Survival of the Most Cruel and Brutal"

Many are already extinct and many more are on the verge of extinction. And all of this just because of one particular species, namely HOMO-SAPIENS.

We just keep wasting the resources, never caring about the circumstances and keep ignoring the results. We, human beings, have been gifted with the best mind on earth, why are we using it to create the imbalance in the nature and food chain...???


If we don't put a check, then that day ain't far when we'll be the ONLY ONE LEFT ALIVE...!!!

Its better that we should STOP before IT'S TOO LATE TO APOLOGIZE...!!!

PS: Reminds me of these beautiful lines from a song:

अरे रुक जा रे बंदे,
अरे थम जा रे बंदे,
ये कुदरत हँस पड़ेगी ।। 

(O Human, Please Stop, Else Nature will Laugh at us...!!!)

Out of the BOX, Into the CUBICLE...!!!

3 months back, I was on phone with my brother-in-law, when he said, "Sarabjeet, now you're about to start your internship and soon you'll working. So get ready as there will be an unexpected change in your life which you might not realize, but get ready for it."

This conversation was made before I started my internship and finally, here I guess I've observed it.

I always saw my father, going to office early in the morning and coming back late in the evening. Sometimes, it was even dinner time when he used to return. I always wondered, what his life is like...??? In-fact, not only his, but for every working person I used to think the same way that is there any social life left for a person when he works all the day long throughout the week...??? What is his family life like...??? Actually, does he/she has any family life...??? One more question always bothered was, When both husband-wife are working, when do they see each others faces or when do they get time to talk...??? When do they get time for themselves...??? When do they get time to exercise, or do they just sit on chair and reach old age...???

Many such questions are there and then I used to think, I'll try not to get into such type of life, atleast for as long as I can avoid it. This was before I joined my bachelors in 2008, because after that, I didn't get much time to think about working professionals as I was mostly in the hostel. But soon at the end of my fourth year, I was again thinking the same, as I was supposed to start working at some place.

Life was about to change, but fortunately, I got into my masters and it was delayed for another 2 years and I realized, that avoiding after wasn't that easy as either I have to go for another masters degree or PhD(which you know is not that easy).

So for my Mtech, I got busy. I used to say, there is no difference in weekends and weekdays as we'll be working on some college project on almost all the 7 days of the week. But somehow it felt like there were 7 days in the week and life was easy. There wasn't any hard schedule. But it had to end, and it did. Hence, finally it came.

Now, when I see my juniors, their life is almost the same, but for us its no more of 7 days a week. It appears more of a 3 days/week. Yeah-Yeah...3 days only, (Considering my schedule of Mon-Fri, these 5 days appears to be just 1 day and Saturday and Sunday are 2 days). Once you get up on Monday morning, Friday is the only day when you get some relief (Can't help, that's how our office routine is).

Mon-Fri Routine:

1) Get up at 5:30am,
2) Leave for office at 7am,
3) Come back at 7pm(if coming early, else its 8:45pm),
4) Sleep latest by 11:30pm.

So, I guess finally its time to accept that a very much delayed and a long avoided moment has arrived and I've finally joined the BIG HERD of guys of Indian IT sector. It was supposed to start 2 years back but somehow it got delayed due to masters. But now is the time to accept the changes...

As for the title:

Out of the BOX, Into the CUBICLE...!!!

Well, yes, its one of my ways of putting the recent changes that came into my life.

Earlier I used to wonder that what is it like to sit in the office and work, as I was most of the time in a lab, you can imagine it as a closed BOX (as mentioned in the title), and now almost all of my time, its cubicle in which I'm surrounded.

After all the restrictions put on us in the box, i.e., the college, I used to think that apart from those who did PhD, who gets much opportunity to think and innovate, considering colleges always talk about Research and Innovation and Development. But there was quite a bit of it and it was good.

Now the question is:

Hmmm...So answer to thinking out of the box...???

Well, it took me 6 years to make comment on how much of R&D is possible in colleges. So its time to see that how much Research and Innovation and Development is possible, when I'm in a company, i.e., a cubicle, as they also talk a lot about it in the same way. But its too early to say anything as I've just joined it and its not even complete 3 months. At least I should give it half the time.

PS: Life has just started and I guess I'm thinking quite a bit already about my future. Time to enjoy it is...!!!

Lets See...Will get back to you soon with the updates...!!!
