Happy Children’s Day

In this world, we learn a lot as a child only, so a child is a place where we can impart best of our knowledge and values.

No one is perfect but all we can do is do good, be good, share well.

What message I want to leave for my kids is only to be a good human.

Today being children’s day, before I leave a message I want to be the child again with all the children.

I want to jump, I want to play, I want to swirl, I want to be that little girl,

I want to dance, I want to hop, I want to hide, I want to go back on that slide,

I want to attend the school, I want to fight for that seat in the class,

No responsibility, no duties to abide, No bills to pay, no mess to clean,

Just move around carefree being the real me.

Watch cartoon for hours and then say i am tired for the day,

The special stomach ache which pops up only when school bus is arriving, the fight for that half mark with my best buddy.

I want to spend the best of my time with my kids to make them string, loving, caring humans.

Instead of attitude teach them gratitude

Instead of cheating teach them sharing/ helping

Instead of fighting teach them writing.

Will try to be a positive human anf helping hand for my kids.

 

Will tell them:

Sometimes even if you are right wrong may happen to you but you need to have faith and believe in yourself always.

Life is not easy but a good company will surely help you sail smoothly.

I want to tell them you are born on beautiful Earth so let your every moment be special. You are blessed to have good parents, Share and make good friends for life.

Pearls

Pearls are my favorites, and I’m sure it’s among many of you.

So on this date 11-11, I plan to write about them only.

Diamonds may be girls best friend but pearls nowhere are left and surely deserve to come closer.

So here’s some pearl power for you:

pearl

Natural pearls produced by mussels and oysters are beautiful in every way.

I still dream to see that pearl in the shell once in my life.

It’s very funny that pearl which is so precious has no value for its owner, Mr. Oyster. It is its defense mechanism that gifts us such beautiful thing from nature.

It takes sometimes years to produce a 6mm or 8 mm natural pearl in its shell.

Other than natural there are cultured pearls too that intervenes manual help in making them. Even there are imitation pearls made of fish scales, glue, plastic etc.

Each pearl is individual, Each pearl has its own story and beauty.

HOW TO PICK YOUR PEARLS

A choker pearl set looks good on the long and slim neck.

The longer necklace looks good on the heavy and short neck.

Try dangling pearl earrings for round face to offset it.

Round button style pearls look good on thin face,

For Bracelet and rings – Take into account the size of your wrist and length of fingers.

If you have fuller features avoid small, delicate designs.

Don’t cover up your small features with bulky jewelry.

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR PEARLS

never use detergent, bleach, baking soda or ammonia-based products to clean pearls. Mild soap and water are good enough to wash them that too once in a while.

The bite test to check authentic one

Its old aunt’s way to check if its real or not. Rub it gently along the edge of your upper front teeth. If it tastes a bit sandy it is sure to be real girls. but if no sandy feel then its imitation.

Helping hand

Positive vibes can be felt from a distance and today I’m talking about a person whom I haven’t met physically, yet he is my Godfather. He is truly an inspiration. I call him G”Ji” and he has been always a help in the moment of crisis. What brings him to my blog is his latest drive.

He is associated with Daan Utsav. Image result for daan utsavIt’s India’s festival of giving and joy, which is held every year form Oct2 -Oct8.

Daan Utsav is a beautiful concept in itself. It’s about taking out time from our busy schedule and daily chores and routine.

Going beyond our own lives, to touch someone else’s.

Help can be in many ways….time, effort, money, and Related imagemany other dimensions….one can choose what suits best for the person.

The donation is not the only way, It can be done by giving your time, Make food and distribute, get the things they need from your resources etc. Be a volunteer.

 

He introduced me to his teamwork by a society which is working for the betterment of society with there efforts for people.Its 10th year they are entering with this beautiful thought of helping others.

It’s a community effort by people of the society.

They have a facebook page too with name sterling terraces.

They have been associated with Daan Utsav since a long time. I got this opportunity to share their work this year.  The following members are actively involved in this event….Kaveri, Lata, Girish, Nitasha, Pallavi, Sandhya, Rajan, Srinivasan, and Sudhir. Sorry if I had left someone in this list.

Let me brief you on what is his team’s efforts for Daan Utsav this year.

IMG-20171002-WA0050

 

This year It’s a collection drive for a special school for visually challenged.

We take our sight for granted but think of those who know only darkness, they are excluded from basic things just because the vision is not there. We have to give them normal social environment because people who are blind can function equally effectively as others.

There are billions of children who due to blindness remain illiterate, and are excluded as separate. We have to bring them and make a part with us.

This team has therefore focussed on needs of our special friends.

This being the blind school their needs are different…

  • Taking about 5000 Braille sheets for their use so they can be more literate and never miss out on information.
  • Taking monthly ration supplies for the school so their basic amenities are met.
  • Taking school uniform, shoes and socks for them. Education creates no difference, it’s only the way of teaching that may differ.
  • Taking teaching aid in the form of play laptops for kids which have an audio interface in them.

Their team is Light in Darkness!

Sharing is caring when given from the heart with pleasure.

Heart Prints

The heart that left its footprints or rather say heart prints on me, the heart that left inspiration and hopes on me. Experiences that shaped and defined me.

Who and what am I? Whom I met and What choices I made?

My Life was a real teacher in my life.

The choices I made taught me the lesson every time I made a wrong or right decision.

My past, My present and what will I choose in future.

The good, the bad and the judgments I made.

Our relationships, our encounters, our friends, and foes are all our choices.

There were people, friends, strangers whom I met in life at different places I lived who taught me a lesson or two. Can’t mention all but all in all, I can say is Life was a teacher to me, who made me, framed me, survived me.

I have been and seen a lot in this small life and learned every lesson carefully.

When I was hurt I learned to fight.

When I was happy I learned to make it memorable.

When I missed the opportunity I learned to try again.

When I got it right, I learned to appreciate.

When I faced depression, I learned to cope.

When I faced struggles, I learned to fight the battle.

When he left us, I learned to be independent.

When I had to leave her, I learned to accept it forever.

 

Lot I learned Lot they taught

Lot I noted Lot I fought

The elderly father figure who helped me travel the Sea first time left the footprint forever, its been 20 years and still I can hear his concerned voice.

The young man who grabbed my hand when I was running behind the running train, He left his footprint till date.

The person who helped whenever I called for advice.

These were the helping hands of my life.

They had left a permanent heart print on my Life and made me the better human who learn to help in whatever situation you are.

heart-photography-fine-art-photography

Be the one who can be the heart print in everyone’s heart,

Be the footprint which everyone wants to follow.

 

While I sit on my Terminal, it creates a pattern of life that sure will make me nostalgic in years to come and wait with bated Breath not to be disobedient because you can choose courage or you can choose comfort but you cannot have both, else you will be a monster for yourself to fight for searching for positive heart prints in his/ her favourite song.

Friday Foto fiction – September

The shares of his company were going great and touching year high again. He has left many emotions, many moments, many celebrations behind to reach this page of Business.

He was the most successful, but what lies hidden in these pages is the news on page 3 too.  Was he not responsible for that big deal costing millions and humans too. Was he not the lead name for all manipulations and transactions. The elections, the matches, the market all was going to have disastorous effect after this news.

What will he do now? He was destroyed emotionally, physically, mentally, socially, practically in every possible way.

The line scrolled in front of him ” If you want to reach the Top, don’t run over the others.” Was it too late now?

What this Song says

So which song am I listening to today…Hello music…. shake shake….and here it is….This is one of my favorites…

A song from Marathi movie “natsamrat” A famous movie based on an Old classic novel about overcoming hurdles in life.

This song ” khel mandala” meaning the game is set.

Khel Mandal

The things are already set we cant change them but we can try and survive.

So true in life.

तुझ्या पायरीशी कुनी सान थोर न्हाई

साद सुन्या काळजाची तुझ्या कानी जाई

O Lord only you can listen to prayers, and all are equal at your doorstep.

No one is rich or poor and all prayers reach your ear.

तरी देवा सरं ना ह्यो भोग कशापायी

हरवली वाट दिशा अंधारल्या दाही

All directions I see is only darkness, I am lost.

Still, my sufferings seem to have no end.

ववाळुनी उधळतो जीव मायबापा

वनवा ह्यो उरी पेटला, खेळ मांडला

I am restless, I m afraid, but no point because I know Game is all set!

सांडली गा रीतभात घेतला वसा तुझा

तूच वाट दाखीव गा खेळ मांडला

दावी देवा पैलपार पाठीशी तू र्‍हा हुबा

ह्यो तुझ्याच उंबर्‍यात, खेळ मांडला

I abandoned everything, Now you only have to show me the way.

Please guide me my father, my lord

Please stand by me and give me the strength to play the game called life in your world.

I m relying on you to help me perform.

उसवलं गनगोत सारं आधार कुनाचा न्हाई

भेगाळल्या भुईपरी जीणं अंगार जीवाला जाळी

The net of the relatives & family supporters is torn

They have rejected me and discouraged and ignored me.

I have no one whom I can say is mine

I feel like burning sun is taking its burning heat inside the cracks of my body.

बळ दे झुंजायाला किरपेची ढाल दे

इनविती पंचप्रान जिव्हारात ताल दे

Give me the strength to fight, and shield of compassion.

Give me forgiveness

करपलं रान देवा, जळलं शिवार

तरी न्हाई धीर सांडला, खेळ मांडला.

The field is on fire,  is all burnt to ashes, nothing is remaining now,

But I still have hope because the game is already set.

We cant do anything but try and try.

It is one of the best meaningful songs I have ever heard.

Cribbing and whining are not the solution to any problem. Self-pity is also living in hell. Once the journey through darkness is towards the end one can see the light but that lit way one has to walk then only can you see the path.

It’s our boat of life and we have to row it with our hands gently. God will show us the way.

Monster

Monster – a frightening imaginary creature…. well then for sure my lil ones are no less than monsters.

There is one nice monster that is non-living in my house, which is lying here or there somewhere, comes between my legs that I actually fall. It goes vroom vroom vroom. real monster making ugly noises. But this monster truck is completely harmless.

It’s the other monster that’s dangerous. Its not visible thats why its more dangerous. these which are visible are only names we give but they are harmless.

Today I m thinking of yet another monster and that’s the monster within us.

The negative thinker, the ill-doer.

It is neither a sea monster or a prehistoric monster.

It is neither an extraordinary size nor malformed type.

It’s within us and it’s of no shape or size.

It’s cruel, frightening, and evil in its own way coz it’s harming us in every way.

It’s in corruption, It’s in terrorism, It’s in cheating, It’s in ill-treating.

There are types of monsters inside the body and one needs to kill them first. For the money, people are killing siblings. For property families are getting broken, for corruption the talented are losing their jobs. The monster of corruption is eating the rights of common man. Money has become the monster.

Related image image source – google/ Pinterest

Just celebrating Dussehra is not win over evil. Even Ravana was an intelligent soul. We need to kill the monster within. We need to take evil thoughts aside. For making the world a beautiful place, first, beautiful thoughts have to take place. Women are raped, where are moral values, bringing them back will kill the monster. Parents have to leave their own houses, living together will kill the monster. Happiness is going out of windows. We are copying other cultures and our traditions are losing values, respect them first, that will kill the monster. When a woman can walk freely without any fear that will be the day of Dussehra when real monster will be killed. When people will not fear when a girl child is born.

First kill the ill monster within the self of jealousy, insecurity, depression, vengeance, comparison etc. Think of positive and togetherness. Feed the hero, the angel in you. We all had read the story of Beauty and the beast….monster who when gets love turns into a real prince. So spread love, spread togetherness, spread positivity.

They say its kalyug, the yug. the time of vice. But we as humans can only work upon it and make it golden yug.

Choose courage to fight evil, to say no to ill practices that will kill the monster.

Those who are actually fighting with deadly diseases or struggle of life, very well know how to fight with monsters.

 

 

While I sit on my Terminal, it creates a pattern of life that sure will make me nostalgic in years to come and wait with Bated Breath not to be disobedient because you can choose courage or you can choose comfort but you cannot have both, else you will be a monster for yourself to fight for searching for positive heart prints in his/ her favourite songs.

Making a choice

What will you choose comfort or courage?

Can I or Can I not?

Will I be able to do or Will I not?

Should I say or should I not?

 

Leave your comfort zone to take that leap,

Take one step further to feel the wind.

Play big, Try new things,

There’s no boundation on what you think.

Image result for try new things

You can’t take challenge in that comfort zone,

You have to creep out to prove you are on your own.

Will I overcome the fear to jump or stay seated,

Or just cross the road to prove task is completed.

Creativity is courage, Thinking different is courage,

Participating in competitions with your wordage.

Image result for creativity is courage

 

Comfort zone has ease, safety, and security,

But courage is adventurous it is filled with opportunity.

Comfortably I do things I enjoy doing,

Courageously I do things I love Exploring.

Question of life, its a tough choice,

Walking the new road you will later rejoice.

Don’t dream unnatural, Be natural.

Life begins when you step outside

Change is uncomfortable but it will give you pride.

Are you afraid, in fear or feeling discouraged?

You want to bulid confidence, Then you need courage.

Image result for courage or comfort

Courage is learning, It’s all about growing

When you will fall actually you are rising.

Be strong and step out,

Its all yours when you shout.

Cross the range, Be the change,

Life is happening, don’t be strange.

Disobedience

LACK OF OBEDIENCE, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU?

Refusing to obey, but why?

Is it always necessary to obey, to follow rules or is it okay to break?

I like to follow rules and it gives me tension if by mistake I skip a red signal by mistake if I am not standing in line where the queue is formed.

Some people say its fun to not follow rules. But people love to risk and experiment. They feel obedience is slavery and disobedience is liberty. Following rules may seem unattractive but its results are attractive.

Obedience gives the discipline to live. It gives a routine. Organization and follow said rules allow combination and association which helps an individual to achieve great things.

Have you seen kids, not following rules maybe they do it to seek attention for parents or guardians? Kids even if asked to play outside will continue playing inside the house, they won’t listen to wearing said clothing or shoes outside the house, but I feel when it comes to kids its somewhere there innocent nature and growing up phase.

But what if sensible grown-up humans do disobedience? But if you don’t rebel against you will not form part of history. Scroll the pages of past and you will find when there was a rebel and great reform or change was formed. But impatience and disobedience will only drive us to take bad and wrong decisions. Civil disobedience is also one sector which is otherwise not accepted by society and religion. There were times in history when breaking the law was justified: Great leaders like Gandhi and Martin Luther King, broke the law and changed the world for the better.

In order to disobey one needs to have the courage and justify it.
