Mother

I rested in my quilt, watching television, basking in the heat on a cold winter night. She sat near to me, but not in the quilt. I told her to, but she said she had work and sitting in quilt would make her not get back to it. You know, a dinner can not be delayed.

She pulled out a fruit cake. She thought I was hungry. After lunch, we had had nothing. But, she felt only I was hungry.

Opening up the packet, she gave a piece to me. Looking at her, a satisfied, at peace, face, I told her to have it too. But she said, she wasn’t hungry.

She looked tired. Yet, she looked all set to get back to the kitchen. Her hair were not in place, yet she looked beautiful. Her light brown eyes still held that sparkle to make up anyone’s day.

I pushed the warm quilt over her legs. She made herself a bit more comfortable by slipping in and lying down in bed. And in no time, she fell asleep, a short nap.

It was a beautiful sight. It always, is. Watching your mother, resting after a long day which is yet to end and still has a lot more to offer and do. The calm on her face could make anyone feel contented.

I preferred looking at her and switched off the television.

Little moments lived in life, I believe, pushes more happiness and peace, probably readying us for some big moments ahead!

Let’s celebrate all!

There have been times when I felt that words are falling short. Or it was difficult to decipher what I wished to convey. And so here I am, yet again!

This time my head pondered over the various festivities and their religious connect. And how I, like a few others, have enjoyed and celebrated life through each one of them.

Being a native of India, a country full of diversity, I have seen, felt and actually been a part of so many festivals amidst varied people and culture.

There are these vibrant festivals of Diwali and Holi.
While Diwali takes you out on a cleanliness drive, Holi leads you to many color-filled rides. All of us out here know about these festivals. Even though, we may not be typically in the related religion but we do tend to lighten up..brighten up on these occasions.

Eid..! It is a beautiful day. You get to hear prayers which are soothing to your ears and brings about a very calm and peaceful environment. If I am around a Masjid, I am drawn towards the connect which the prayers try to build with the Almighty. And finally, a delicacy on the day is a must for me.. unavoidable! πŸ˜€

Lohri..! A day when I pray and eat, eat and eat! And since it’s around the new year time, it is an extended celebratory time..! πŸ™‚

And then, it’s Christmas! A feeling of a new festive season around the corner. A time when I wish to dress up in shades of red. And gorge on cakes and chocolates..! πŸ˜‰

And there are many many which can be talked about at great length. But I want to make a point here.

The world around is full of different cultures and hence religions and hence people. And to build in a peaceful one, the one with love as the adhesive force, we need to celebrate.

Celebrate in your own little way. Just pulling out few minutes from your day. And enjoying the festive feelings. Make them your own..! πŸ™‚

Talk about it somewhere, with someone for just few minutes. It is when people talk and celebrate what I celebrate, I connect more, I connect better. And I am sure it goes for all.

There is no point being an obstacle to festivities, to celebrations. There is none. There is no point telling our little ones around not to celebrate just because you are not following a related- religion. Teach them about many of themΒ  infact. Let them be welcoming. Let children be the seeds of love.

Let us not be so selfish..not atleast in the name of God!

Don’t be a roadblock on the path of happiness..the world around has no less pain.

Celebrate.

Merry Christmas Everyone!! πŸ™‚

P.S.: It is this conversation which made me write today’s words.
I asked this little 8 year old boy about his religion as it was asked for his school admission. He said, ” I don’t know.”
I asked,” Are you a Hindu?”
” I don’t like the name, what else?”
“Muslim?”
” Noo! They use words I don’t understand..!”
“Sikh?”
” I haven’t heard of it..!”
“Christian?”
” Christmas tree..Santa Claus..?”
“Yes..! Kind of..”
“But I celebrate Holi also…(named a few more)… you write all of them because I want to celebrate all!”

“While you make mistakes, learn to correct them too, just find a way out, because wondering about what a blunder has been done, won’t make things better but worse.”Β

And that was something that came to my mind in the morning when I was looking for solutions..!

Good day everyone! πŸ™‚

A Child.

A child is not a business entity in which a man and a woman do investment. And over it, if this investment doesn’t give returns, a shutdown is what hovers over their mind.
A child is a human being, a heart with feelings. If you can’t treat her (him) like one, just don’t have one, just don’t get one!

You might be thinking what kind of words are these. Who after all considers a child as a profiteering entity? Who goes on to the extent of a shutdown? And what do I actually mean by a shutdown?

And trust me, its not about those who have been living a miserable life. Or for that matter, have issues with a female new-born. Or may be a poor family financially!

No..! I wrote this when I saw a well educated…No…A so-called qualified man throwing out his motherless child out for reasons he himself has been responsible for! I wrote this when I just could not digest the fact that his investments on the child looked futile to him with respect to the outcomes.

A shutdown here is when the child has a father who he cannot just look upto because he has been discarded as a useless entity probably. A shutdown is when he sees his fellow mates turning up with their daddies and he has none to look upto despite having one. And over it, the child just does not know why and what is actually happening..

I wonder how such people end up even having a sound sleep at night…Something which they don’t deserve even if they had been working hard all day for their livelihoods..!

I wish people understood that they cannot play with a young life- a small child when they cannot take up the responsibility…

I wish they knew that Life is a Full Circle and they would get back what they started..!

Share your view: What’s Life?

What is life?
Have you ever pondered over?
Or, by now you might have learnt and known?

Life is a journey.
For me, it is a journey to attain happiness and contentment. And it may not exist for a long time but may come up in short or long spells, probably like the monsoons! 😊

Life is working hard and finally achieving that one ultimate goal of your journey. But that one ultimate goal, may just be at the top which can be reached after successfully attaining those intermediary goals.

Life is appreciating what you have. And trying to make it accessible and viable for as many as you can. It may be love. It may be seeing a sunrise. I say it because there are those you just can’t enjoy the small things in life. They just can’t. Life is helping them out!

Life is experiencing those big and small, happy and sad moments. Overcoming the sad ones by getting nostalgic, thinking about the good ones.

Life is living a dream. A dream which you might have seen with your open eyes. A dream which made you toil day and night.

Life is today. And today, is always beautiful.

Life is indeed beautiful!
What do you think? What is life for you? What has it been for you yet?
I wish to know more about it. I am looking for those new dimensions which minds out there have. So, do drop in your views everyone!πŸ™‚

When you have suffered, felt and lived a difficult situation, you would always turn out to be a saviour for the one who is suffering, just to make sure that the person doesn’t feel and live through the same.

And I wish to know your views and opinions. If you have ever been that kind, share it.
