    Trust the Process

    Be the change put a smile on every face from a different race...

    Choose love over adversity awaken in its beauty...

    Spiritual warfare darkness obscured in fear...

    Make this world a better place less judgement less hate let's elevate

    As the marathon continues...

    Together, Always.

    Listen around carefully
    You can hear their gasps
    Struggling with societal burdens,
    Sweating all over
    Building themselves to 'expectations',
    Knitting and spinning robes
    To wear 'their choice' of clothes,
    Paving roads tireless
    Making 'ours' easy.
    Let's not just celebrate
    With all these cakes and coloured balloons
    Let's spare their faces
    Off these fake filters
    Let's stay afar from this fake revolution
    This media hoax.
    Let's start with thoughts
    And make steps even tiny.
    Let's for once rewind time
    We see and we are part
    And yes we are evolving.
    Let's not build more steps and
    Force them up.
    Let's break this barrier
    Of me and you, of us and them
    Let's make some space
    And stand together
    Let's pave new paths
    And walk together
    Let's begin this change
    By being the one.

    Excerpt from -
    From the depths of one's oceans


    From these salvages man can quilt his plumage

    hold the dense rainforest accountable for its greenery

    and crown himself chieftain of embarked travelers.

    Parents need to normalise to accept flaws, success, failures and everything else that is related to their child. Each child is different in his or her own way and it is parents duty to understand the capacity of their own ward and let them dream.

    Parents should learn to accept their child the way they are instead of comparing them with someone else in the world outside or relatives or friends for that matter. It would be way better if parents just accepted the knitting dreams of their child and be happy with their child.
    Let them live life the way they want to after they have reached a certain stage in their life. Instead of forcing your dreams on them, it will be better if you as parents accept those dreams of your children and let them lead life the way they want to.

    In this competitive era, it gets difficult to achieve everything in one go. Some children take baby steps and some children take huge leaps. Just because your child is not running like the other child, doesn't mean that your child doesn't give the best of his or her capacity. Your neighbor's child maybe good at academics and your child maybe good in drawing or arte or singing or something else that someone else is not good at.

    Competition is there at every step and at every stage, this world is growing competitive. Just because your child is choosing Arts over Science doesn't mean that your child is not capable of anything. Maybe your child is good at literature/History/ Hindi/English and some other subject that a Science student may not be good at. Just because your child is going to Commerce field and wants to be an MBA or a CA doesn't mean that your child is any less than your neighbour's. Just because your child has done engineering and then wishes to pursue MBA and then wants to join some bank, doesn't mean that choosing Science was a waste.
    Let your children choose course/careers of their choice instead of you pushing all your unfulfilled dreams on their head. It would be way better if you would let them fly, fall, get up, dust themselves, dream and learn to walk again.

    Just because you couldn't fulfill your dreams at your age, doesn't give you the right to force your dreams on your children. By making them emotionally weak and convincing them the wrong way to make your dreams theirs, you're losing your child. Telling them all your dreams over and over again, that your dreams will remain unfulfilled if they don't pursue it, you'll be getting no where. Giving them guilt trips, by compelling them to dream your dreams, ambitions, goals and just making them suffer to achieve your dreams, will get you nothing but distance between you and your child.

    Dreams are dreams after all be it yours or be it your child's. Just for you, they have to sacrifice their dream isn't right. Is it? You as parents have sacrificed a lot so have they given upon things you might not know it because they never told out in the open about sacrificing something for you. Just to make you happy, to keep you away from worries, they might agree to dream what you have dreamt of, but what about their ambitions? Have you thought about it? What about those simple dreams that they've sewed for themselves?
    You couldn't fulfill your dreams when you were of their age doesn't mean you force all your dreams on them and continue the chain for generations together.
    Just like how you have dreamt something for them, they too have them something for themselves. Just because you don't support them, maybe they will accept your dreams as their dreams and pursue but you really think by pursuing your dreams, they will be happy? You think it'll be a good choice?
    Maybe your parents didn't allow you, didn't have your back but it doesn't mean that you don't support your children too. Back then, when you were of their age, when you were young, the conditions might have been different, the education system was not as strong as it is right now. Maybe your parents were not financially capable of helping you achieve your dreams but if you are financially strong and able then why not let your children pursue their dream?
    It may take a little longer for your child to achieve his or her dream than it took for someone else. Or who knows someone else might not even know what they want from life let alone living their dream but your child at least knows where his or her happiness lies. At least, your child is running after his or her dream.
    There are many children out in the world who compromise from the day they are born to the last day, be happy that at least your child has never learnt compromising on their dreams that they have dreamt of from the time they have learnt what the world is.
    You compromised may be your partner did too that doesn't mean your child also should adjust. Does it?
    If you are capable of helping your child achieve his or her dream, then why not break the stereotype of forcing your unfulfilled dreams on them?
    Tomorrow when your child is of your age, your child will be proud enough to say that "my parents helped me achieve my dream, my parents supported me to become the person I am today" and maybe your child will help his or her child to be the person of their choice.
    In the era where money matters a lot more than peace of mind, be satisfied that your child is choosing peace of mind over monetary terms.
    It's not very often that someone chooses peace of mind over money if your child is pursuing peace of mind, calm, satisfaction for a less amount of money maybe you're lucky you know.
    If your child comes and shares the idea of their dream with you, may be your child is sorted and knows where his or her serenity lies. It's not always that dreams are fulfilled. The society isn't bringing up your child, you are. So your child will share things with you and not with the society. Forget what the society will talk about you, your family and child; make sure to preserve your child's dream, help your child in pursuing as well as achieve it.
    Be the change and see how the world changes slowly.

    Whenever I listen to my grandma's words
    All I can hear is freshness in their thoughts ,love in their relationships ,unity in their family ,helping hands for the needy !

    But suddenly while I was listening to her beautiful words, I came across a tragic news in social media!

    Then I realized one thing,
    《This world becomes darker as time passes 》

    Nowadays,
    Is there any freshness in people's thoughts?
    Is there any love in this air?
    How about unity and Helping hands?

    Here I'm not talking about the �� ��[a day]
    But,a day resembles sooo much about these days!

    Why can't we light up the world while it is getting darker day by day?

    Let's be the change!
    Let's spread love and unity!

    "When we unite we are right♡"

    Change

    ಬದಲಾಗು ಮನುಜ ನಿನ್ನ ಬದುಕನ್ನು ಬದಲಿಸು
    ದ್ವೇಷ ಕೋಪ ಅತಿಯಾಸೆ ಹೊಟ್ಟೆಕಿಚ್ಚು ಬೇಡ ನಿನಗೆ
    ಶಾಂತಿ ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಭಕ್ತಿ ಭಾವ ಸಾಕು ನಿನ್ನ ಮನಕೆ
    ಬೇರೆಯವರ ಗೆಲುವಿಗೆ ಪಡುವೆ ಅಸೂಯೆ
    ನಿನ್ನ ದುಡಿಮೆಗೆ ಸಿಗುವುದು ತಕ್ಕ ಹಿರಿಮೆ
    ವಯಸ್ಸಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ ನಿನ್ನ ದೇಹಕ್ಕೆ
    ಮಾಡಿಕೋ ನಿನ್ನ ಮನಸನ್ನು ಮಗುವಿನಂತೆ
    ಬದುಕಿರುವಾಗ ಎಲ್ಲರನ್ನು ಗೌರವಿಸು
    ದೈವ ಆಸರೆಯಾಗುವ ನಿನಗೆ
    ಉಪಕಾರ ಮಾಡಿದವರಿಗೆ ಕೇಡ ಬಯಸುವೆ
    ಬೇರೆಯವರ ಒಳ್ಳೆತನವ ದುರುಪಯೋಗ ಮಾಡುವೆ
    ಇಂದು ನಗುವೇ ಬೇರೆಯವರನ್ನ ಅಳಿಸುವೆ
    ಆಸ್ತಿ ಅಂತಸ್ತು ಯಾವುದು ಬರುವುದಿಲ್ಲ ನಿನಗೆ
    ನಾಳೆ ಆರು ಮೂರು ಅಡಿಯೆ ಗತಿ ನಿನಗೆ
    ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಸ್ನೇಹ ಸಂತಸ ಪ್ರೋತ್ಸಾಹ ಹಂಚುತ್ತಿರು
    ಜೀವನದಲ್ಲಿ ಗೆದ್ದು ನೀ ಮಾದರಿಯಾಗು!

    Space!!

    Looking for space? We all are actually #looking for space in everything be it #work, #relationship, #friendship and even our #laptop needs space to #breathe. Haha. See how important that is, to have space. It is required for our #mental #health too. 


    But what we are actually doing in that space matters. Nowadays we are #addicted to #Netflix, social media, even #caffeine for that matter. Over addiction is #devastating but we don't realise it initially. Even #loneliness is #addiction, which is actually #loved by many. And the best part of being alone is you don't need space from it. 


    If you love to have space, utilise it #wisely. Because space never asks for space and #time doesn't give space. 


    #Shape up your space 
    #Create a #different place.

    गरीब की पोटली से , जज़्बात ।
    और उम्मीद के अलावा ,
    कुछ नहीं बंधा होता ।
    और ये नेता ,
    इसे भी हलाल कर जाते ।
    फिर इनमें से ,
    हिंदू मुस्लिम बच जाते ।
    ये मज़हब के नाम पे ,
    लड़ा दिए जाते ।

    Change India Be The Change

    We all know that no system is perfect but even for an imperfect system 73 years of freedom is enough time to change. As a student and citizen it's not abnormal for any you to expect your rights. But shockingly even in these extreme times, no schools are will to co operate. Sadly the story doesn't end there. The education ministry is forcing children to give exams or their year wil be wasted. Their explanation being that it is best we no waste time and hold back the future of India. What's most shocking is that as of now how series of events has taken place.

    Child forced to give exams
    Severe increase in Taxes
    Reopening cites at such a critical time

    We are requesting the Government to turn on a semi lockdown in all major cities and post pone all exams.

    आयना

    टूटे हुए आइने से भी कला होती हैं,
    जिंदगी एक दिन खूबसूरत और दूसरे दिन बला होती है
    अपने मन की ताकत जब एक औजार कल होगी
    आपकी सोच आपकी दुनिया जरूर बदल देगी!

    मेरी या तुम्हारी दृष्टि से ये कहाँ सोच पाएँगे
    गिद्धों के गुरु हैं जो, हमें तो वो नोच खाएँगे

    क्या मतलब है इनको कि, जनता नाशाद है
    ये तो वो लोग हैं जो चुटकुलों से चोट खाएँगे

    जाओ और लिख दो दीवारों पर : "आज़ादी"
    फिर देखो कैसे कलेजों पर साँप लोट जाएँगे

    ग़लती से भी इनसे क्यों लगा लेते हो उम्मीद
    ज़मीर के सौदागर, मुँह पर चूना पोत जाएँगे

    खूब भौंकेंगे ये उनपर जो दुर्बल हैं, लाचार हैं
    सत्ता के आगे तो पाँव पकड़ कर लोट जाएँगे

    ये तो वो बहादुर हैं जो विपक्ष से माँगेंगे जवाब
    दबाने के लिए सच ये सरकारों से नोट खाएँगे

    क्या दोष देंगे उनको जब ख़ुद बेज़ुबाँ हैं आप
    शिकारी से ज़्यादा यहाँ शिकार में खोट पाएँगे

    Kahete hai sabr ka phal meetha hota hai,
    Isko samjhne ka andaaz apna apna hota hai,
    Kyun na hum sunle apne mann ki baat,
    Leke chale apne sanskar auor kadam milaye aaj ke sath.

    No matter how big or small you are, you are strong and you are good in what you do. Always believe in yourself. If you want to eliminate the sufferings, the negativities, the darkness from the world, then eliminate all these things from yourself. If you transform yourself into what you believe and fight for it, you will achieve great success. Be strong and never give up.

    When I was a kid, I thought Zootopia was this perfect place where everyone got along and anyone could be anything. Turns out, real life is a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means hey, we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. So no matter what type of person you are, from the biggest elephant to our first fox, I implore you: Try. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you. It starts with me. It starts with all of us.

    - Judy Hopps, Zootopia

    The light

    My heart carries within it the hope for tomorrow
    To rise like the Sun promising a break from days borrowed
    No further shall we walk in hate filled sorrow
    Together we are stronger, standing tall shedding fears of differences for each of us holds the Light

    A gift nestled deep within our soul's unbreakable spirited essence, it is our right
    Return us to the wild while we erase generational plight
    Look and see the burning brilliance of love is super-powered
    Soul's essential function unites us all, no one is a coward

    Light destroys all the fear ravaging our being and is devoured
    Begin to see the world through the lense of compassion
    Love given freely without hesitation of ration
    Feeling the glow of healing light after years spent in darkness

    Have faith dear ones for this is a marathon, not a sprint
    What kind of mark will your heart leave upon humanity's footprint?

    मैं मिट्टी से बनी, मिट्टी से भरी
    एक फूलदान हूँ
    जिसमें जब तब उग आती है
    जंगली, ज़हरीली घास

    घास लालन पालन नहीं खोजती
    वो बढ़ती चली जाती है
    और फैल जाती है
    अनंत तक

    मैं चाहती हूँ मेरे माथे पर
    एक सुंदर सा फूल सजे
    पर यह ढीठ घास
    फूलों को उगने क्यों नहीं देती?

    यह घास मुझमें इस तरह समायी है
    जैसे समाया है तुम में तुम्हारा पूरा "समाज"
    एक फूल के लिए मुझे इन्हें जड़ से काट फेंकना होगा
    ठीक वैसे ही जैसे तुम्हें तुम्हारी बेहतरी के लिए
    काटना होगा ख़ुद से ख़ुद को!

    We are all one. We are all the connected. Every soul is created by and with love. Black, brown, yellow, white ..... no difference should separate us. My prayer is for us to wake up and realize this fact and stop the hate. Love one another.

    The mirror

    Gazing at my own reflection
    Cast away any perfection
    Parsing out what's truly there
    Can't be seen only felt with care
    For we are each other's mirror
    What we don't like about another
    Lies inside the soul of our brother
    If we want to change this world
    Becoming each other's keeper is what's inferred
    How we treat another soul
    Directly affects us and bears a toll
    Why can't we see ourselves in each other
    Mysterious it seems yet the answer is so clear
    Ego, prideful jealousy set in by doctrine, lies and is the true sin
    God wants us all to love from our hearts
    To see no separation or anything that keeps us apart
    Sit with this thought and tell me true
    Do you love me as I inherently love you?
