Love. It’s there!

A four lettered word that rules the world!

Somebody’s weakness, and somebody’s strength.

Somebody’s silence, and somebody’s love letters written at length.

An invisible thread, it is, that binds.

It’s the universe and an atom too.

It’s a dot, and infinity too.

Found in glimpses, and little acts of care,

It’s there.

A small baby sleeping on mother’s lap,

A kid rejoicing as its hands clap.

The serenity on a fragile old face,

A dad tying son’s shoe lace

A couple’s warm embrace.

A dog’s tail that wags to greet.

Grandma’s preparation for a family treat

Patient ears that listen to their pals’ tweet

A laborer’s tolling  in heat for he has family to feed.

Sweet words of praise,

Good memories in times of haze.

In all these forms and more,

It’s there.

Deep as an ocean, refreshing as rain

In all its forms, it stays

in every nook and corner

throughout the space.

It rules one, it rules all.

It’s in you, it’s in me, it’s in us all.

What’s your idea of fun?!

In today’s times, what is our idea of fun? To most youngsters, it means hanging out at pubs with friends, going out to expensive cafes, watching movies together, and to some enlightened ones, fun is also in going for trips and treks.

Sharing and remembering stories of friends when they were totally sloshed does seem entertaining, no doubt! But, haven’t the young people made this idea of fun too expensive to afford? Not just in terms of money, but in terms of health as well!

Why do we need alcohol to do crazy things? Why do we need to go to expensive cafes for a chat with friends? Why not sit randomly at staircases instead?

Remember the childhood days? We were lucky to have been kids in the 90s. We were not as addicted to cellphones and the internet world then. Also most of us did not get enough pocket money to afford going out for lavish dinners or brunches. Well, lucky us!

We knew how to have fun gossiping with the closest friends all night. We stared at the moon and stars so often. We would be happy sipping evening tea at home and calling up friends for no reason, or maybe even meeting them to just spend some good time at home. 

When did being at home become boring, and when did going out somewhere become a compulsion to have a good time?

I think it’s time to not be a prey to these fads, that not just limit our sense of enjoyment, but are also heavy on our pockets and are harmful for our health.

I think it’s time we invite our friends to our homes and maybe give them a treat of home made food. We play our favorite music and sip tea together. We forget the enmity of this world and learn  to trust again, share secrets and be innocent together.

It’s time we create stories from each other and let each other write a better one by adding quality to our lives.

So, what’s your idea of fun? Would love to know and would love it more if you knew it yourself! 😉

 

With responses from friends and few of my own ideas, I have listed below some activities that you can do and that would cost you nothing! Keep sharing and I will update the list. 🙂

  1. Go outdoors! Play some sports – cricket, badminton, football?
  2. Dance like crazy!
  3. Go bicycle riding.
  4. Learn a new song – sing, play, and if you like share. 🙂
  5. Cook something special.
  6. Play with kids and listen to their philosophy and logic. You wouldn’t be disappointed, I bet!
  7. Go for a walk. Enjoy the company of pleasant weather.
  8.  Watch FRIENDS for the nth time.
  9. Write something, or paint. Create a piece of art.
  10. Play cards with friends, or any indoor game that you like. 🙂
  11. Go swimming.
  12. Spend time with grandparents.
  13. Learn speaking a new language.

This moment – Now

How can this moment not be precious? While learning to scuba dive with a trainer, as soon as you signal him you are not comfortable, in one moment he brings you up again . How can that fraction of second when you signal him be not important? How can the present moment be less important? Now is all there is!
Stay in this moment. Live. Be your natural self. Take care of yourself not for your future but in this moment. And keep doing that.
This moment is everything.

Everything becomes simple when we realise that the power is in Now. We feel powerful as we can act and be our best in this moment.

An alien without voice

Written in response to The Daily Post:


“I am an alien to you. I have no voice. We communicate by sending thoughts where we live. We can perceive your voices through emotions reflected in it. Ours is a different world. We cannot fight as we already read each other’s minds. We feel much more appreciated as we can perceive others thoughts when they appreciate us in their mind. We are more understanding as we need not depend on others to tell their story. We already know it. Ours is a world without voice where there are no voices that are unheard. We like to be here more.
We would like to know though how is it like to sing a song, and listen to just the beautiful sound.
It would be good to trade off places sometime with you.”

Well, if this alien was true, would you like to have its powers to speak and listen without voice?
Let me know in comments.

Change is good – just a ramble!

I don’t like monotony, not even in emotions. As much as I like to be filled with happiness and feel it in every cell of mine, I also like the intense anger that flows through me and brings out the power in me. I also like to cry my heart out when I feel sad. I like the feeling of anticipation, when I have to eagerly wait for knowing about something that means a lot to me. So yes, a constant state of emotions doesn’t appeal to me. I like ocean because of the waves. I like playing with colors to bring the new ones. I like boredom too as when it reaches extremity, it gives birth to creativity and to change!

Focus on what you want!

So I made a list of the activities that I did as a child but don’t do anymore. And with no efforts from my side, I started doing them today. Call it the power of thoughts, focus or the law of attraction, call it anything, all I know is, it works.
I personally spend quite a lot of energy and thoughts on what’s not working for me. This is something I have observed in others too. So thought of writing this simple thing just in case any of you take a break from making a mental list of what’s not working for you and create a new list of what you want instead!
