Dawn...!!!



It is the dim haze of mystery that adds enchantment to pursuit.



Beyond infiltrating radiant beams, lies a mystical sky;
Covered in awry patterns that wry.
Garbled aerosols with zephyr went raveling;
What felt like a fractal, all that revere went quenching;



A ruddy new sun rising beyond the horizon;
Letting go off those days as all were bygone.
Learn from the past, is that's what's doctrine?
Plausible it may be, let's glide-by with a smile that's benign.






PS: No matter how much we resist, it is the human nature that we end up holding-up on memories of bygone era. However, in that time we forget to welcome the new sunshine that comes with a new day.

Picturesque...!!!


One of my old sketches...!!!

The day he saw her rising,
Freeze the moment was all he desired. 
'Coz rising sun was no more the nature's scenic beauties,
He admired.

Wrote it for today's prompt "PAUSE" from Friday Phrases.

PS: Romantic, not my genre, but these lines turned out to be good. Inspiration, dunno exactly :D
Result of another random early morning desires of letting the thoughts flow in the form of words...!!!

Perpetuated...!!!



Permeating my abode with the heavenly halo stream;
Befallen on a Sunday afternoon in a beautiful dream.
Numbness of soul and peace within; while
The heart sways to the harmony without a rile.


Reliving bygone memories with friendship in tandem;
Evergreen memories and moments worth holding 'em.
Radiant vibes; frequency rhymes;
Confluenced minds definitely chimes.






PS: Some moments with some souls are worth cherishing. The best part is when those souls become perpetuated with yours.
Another one from the evening and once again another thanks to Sunny.

Predicament...!!!



When you had it all figured out;
Did you consider life putting in its clout?
If there be a day, the way we wish it to be;
Image Source
What did we lose; a day before or a day after to see?

Chaotic life within which we dwell;
Liveth man within his own well.
Ego hadth neither been a bane nor a boon;
Yet affecth everyone with its ludicrous toon.

A blip in cosmos, yet the cosmoses surround us;
Ignorance gives fodder to delusion without a fuss.
A meandering stream overcometh its hurdle tell;
Like a wandering mind, rummaging without its well.

No edit, nor throw; neither it's to and fro;
Yet it affects all our lives as we grow...!!!



PS: Special thanks to Sunny for helping in penning down these thoughts after a wonderful brain-storming and mutual-learning session.

Time is not at all a Healer...!!!


All great idioms should not necessary be true. Sometimes they are bullshit also.

Everyone says: "Time is the best healer."

My version: "Time is not at all a healer. With due course in time, we learn to live with our problems. We sometimes get so much used to it that we even forget that the problem exists. But they are never healed."

PS: It all starts with an idiom which builds the faith in a person because of some small random events which we start relating to it. However, when some real situation comes in life, then these things only make a person turn into an ATHEIST.

CHILD ABUSE: A Dire Need to listen to THE SOUND OF SILENCE of our KIDS...!!!


In India they say,

"बच्चे भगवान का रूप होते हैं।"
"Kids are the incarnation of God Himself."

All their childhood, parents admire their kids' innocence and naughtiness, teach them about the moral values and culture, educate them in the best possible way they can support with the resources they have. Why? So that in the later stage of life, they can stand up and live on their own as a respectable and self-dependent individual in the society.

 


Taking a simple of example of building a house from playing cards. If all the cards are placed properly and the foundation is good, it always stands tall and supports almost anything.









However, if just one card is placed wrong, it can shatter the whole structure, almost anytime.










What if this actually has happened/happening/happens-in-future in the foundation you're building for your kid's bright future?

FYI, this is actually happening at a rate more than we can anticipate. More than 50% of the kids are being abused, molested or in simple words, mentally-physically-sexually tortured and harassed. All this is happening, in non-other than what we call SCHOOLS, a place where we expect our kids to learn what we somehow can't teach them efficiently by ourselves at home.

In fact, 50% is very less of what is actually happening. Just in India, according to the reported statistics, 53% of the kids face some form of child sexual abuse. But the story doesn't end here. Many of the cases are not even reported, either because the kid never mentions that in front of parents, or because the parents doesn't raise their voices because of what people will think in society. In either case,
1) Parent should learn to speak out, and
2) Parents should find enough time to talk to their kids on daily basis in a friendly way so that kids are comfortable enough to mention their problems (which they might not even know are problems)

I understand that our society and western culture says that the kids should be given more "alone time" so that they can grow more independent, but that's not totally the way its gonna help. If we dig deep down in successful western families, there are many parents who spend evening time with their kids on a regular basis. They even spend one evening a week without any digital tech around them. Talking on regular basis does helps in many ways.

However, coming back to the original topic. In our society, when some girl is raped, people with orthodox mindset in our society blames on the girl only instead of guy that she was not well dressed or some bull-shit reason (will discuss that sometime later). But what about kids? They are innocent human beings who are just enjoying their gift of childhood. What was their mistake in it, if they get targeted by some pedophile from their vicinity? As a parent, will you not be bothered? If yes, then why not speak out? As an uncle or aunt of a kid with whom you've been very close, if this happens to him/her, how will you react? I guess it's high time. If our kids are not even safe in schools, we are not left with any place to go to make them ready for future. Just give it a thought that I've not included any other facts and stats for child abuse in other places, its just the brief facts of what is happening in schools.

PS: If you're still not ready to act, then please try to join this online event "Child Safety in Schools" hosted by Happy Parenting and Doctors' Circle on September 22, 2015 at 1300 hours. Please book your calendars for the sake of the future of your kids. Hope this helps.

See you at the event. Till then adios.

Notes to Myself...!!!



"When I first read Prather's manuscript, it was late at night and I was tired, but by the time I finished it, I felt rested and alive." 

Disclaimer: This post is more of a diary entry and personal account, rather than just any blog post. So proceed at your own risk. Those who're not going forward with the post, just read this one line:

If you're confused with how your life is proceeding, or you have been confused earlier with some similar thoughts and never got the answers, please read "Notes to Myself - Hugh Prather". It will be helpful.

Thanks
:)


Few days back I wrote a post about "Quarter Life Crisis". Couple of days later one of my friend called me to meet and but fortunately got late in reaching. I reached early with nothing to do, I was just wandering around the book stalls (that's what I usually do when I'm free) and found this book "Notes to Myself - Hugh Prather". I don't know why, but I purchased the book absent-mindedly and moved to the decided meeting spot to wait for my friend.

It was around 12:30 at night, when I reached back home, fully tired and shivering from cold. (thanks to Bangalore weather).

Next morning I had to go to office, but somehow I started reading it. 

(If you'd have been through post I was referring to in the beginning, then you'd know I was not in a appropriate mindset.)

That night I just read around 10-15 pages and slept(not sure when); but one thing I'm sure is that I was relatively much relaxed. Next morning I woke up relatively chilled out. Few questions answered. For others questions, I knew which direction I had to think in and also above all, I had to read the remaining book.

The book is very much written in the form of axioms. It might be possible that some of you feel that sometimes its just randomly posing some questions or telling some obvious statements in a better way. But many of them are something which we don't notice normally, but involuntarily do it.

I'd like to quote one stanza from the book here: 

"The mistakes I've been making is interpreting a sensation and assigning it a name ("tension", "fear" and "loneliness"). This makes it autonomous, an independent force that influences me. In actuality, feelings tend to follow interpretation and are as varied as thoughts. Whereas a quiet mind takes form as a quiet body."

As a result:  

"I don't feel 'I want'.
I feel 'I lack', and
I decide 'I want'." 

I know I've to read this book again, because I did something recently(involuntarily) and the situation is perfectly described by this instance from the book. I feel my recent act was involuntarily driven by my "then frame of mind".

I just related and grasped many things from this book which at that time were answering my questions or looked like answering them. Now going through it again somehow elaborates why I did what I did.

Well some actions are not reversible, but they are definitely healed with time. How much time, that's no one is sure of it, isn't it? Well, earlier I was very much confused about what's going on with myself. Although I am still confused right now, but I guess I've, relatively, a little more clarity than what I had few weeks back.

PS: If you're going through similar situations in life, I'd recommend you to try this book. If not, or had been through something similar earlier in life, then also read it.

A Spontaneous Answer...!!!



Yesterday someone asked me two questions, I had the answers to both instantaneously, but later my answer to one of them actually made me think. :)


Friend: "A teacher who
taught you most, yet you hate him?"
Me: "Its Life, who else?"


PS: I guess I don't hate life if it behaves as life, but I sometimes hate it's teaching methods. But what Robert Frost once said, 

"I'm not a Teacher, I'm an Awakener"
 
perfectly suits what life wants to tell us.
