Fear -Think again

If people are in fear state then why are they not able to understand simple sentence :Stay at home

Why the authorities all over the world have to use strict measures?

Isn’t there already lot on their hands to deal with, without worrying about the people who want to go out for a walk ?

This is nothing to do with education, and everything to do with plain COMMAN SENSE.

It is moral duty of ever single of us (who are not directly connected with any profession requiring to be out there) to pitch in by simply getting out of the way.


The people violating home quarantine or other wise violating the rules should be clicked and put on the social media. May be it will help to drive message home “We are living in Pandemic state”

Home Sweet Home – A myth?

My home

I want to have a home of my own

Home Sweet Home

Etc……numerous sentiments and phrases . Most of our life we spend most of our time, money and energy to have a space of our own.

Then why today people are finding it so difficult to be in there?. They are looking ways and means to make themself comfortable in their own private territories. Feeling is of torture rather than Peace

What an irony

Now of all the times, people want to go for walks, exercise, enjoy the nature.

No one wants to watch TV, bury their heads into mobiles, no family times. Children are getting bored with their gaming, online things.

The very parents who would complain about not spending enough time with their children, why are they not taking advantage?

This will pass sooner or later

Stop complaing be greatful

Think of the homeless who are the most vulnerable to this catastrophic situation. ,

Very important

Time to Salute the Moms and wives, who stay at home most of the day. Greet you with a Smile 🌝🌝 and a Hug when you come back, irrespective of your response

Mystic Me

Being Alone with yourself

An opportunity to explore

There is an ocean within

Full of surprises

Let’s connect to self

Away from the chaotic world outside

The ego, the pride, the success, the competition

All down in the dust

An invisible droplet’s power

Brought the world to standstll

We the so called powerful

Powerless at the hands of unknown

Going back to basics -II

How we see the present situation is an individual choice. Looking at the statistics, the numbet of cases recovered is much much higher then the fatalities.

– One of the rearest occassions when all the country heads agree that it has no bounderies, boarders , race, creed or religion, everyone is equal in the eyes of Corona.

– The mothet Earth and Skies may be silently thanking the virus for giving them some respite.

– Instead of luxury, people are thinking of basic needs

– More communication with the immediate neighborhood

– Two choices

Crib the restrictions

Or

Use the time for Self

” The Sun rise and set

Magnificent

The Air and winds

Abundant

The Rivers and Oceans

Free flowing

The animals and Birds

Fearless

Humans are the race

Helpless and caged

What an Irony

Going back to basics Part I

Since the outbreak at China started enhulfing other parts of the world (hardly any place untouched now), I keep going back in time and appreciate the logic of our Ancestors for doing things a certain way.

People , in so called modern society,  who ridiculed the old ways and now seeking the older wisdom.
A few thoughts to make my point :

– Trafitional Namstay, considered old fashioned by todays modern  society,  is now  safest way to greet 🙏🏻

– May be 2 generations ago and still in the remote/rural India, people observe the practice of leaving their footwears outside near the main gates. And washing their hands, feet and face thoroughly before entering the house.  The logic was to wash off the dirt and grit of the day .

– Would drink water without touching the glass or container


Would not hold baby or small children immediately after coming from outside, avoiding passing on any germs to them

– Would eat in a thali (plate) served individually to avoid contamination of food for other, as food was eaten using hands

– Hands were washed thoroughly after finishing food. Today napkins have taken our live

–  Performing havans and poojas were a norm. The purpose was to purify the atmosphere in and around the house. The pure ghee, camphor and other ingredients used are  believed to be natural purifiers.

The list is extensive……

In this testing time if we are mindful and aware of our routine and habits it may go a long way to keep us and others safe.

We can not go back but always adapt some good old practices to sustain in a better way


To be continued…..

Random- The beauty of Simplicity

The wrinkled wisdom

Toothless Smile

What I seek from life?

She said Nothing

I am Eternal love

What I desire

Nothing she said

The woods I carry

Are not burdens of weight

My loved ones Trust in me

To feed and keep them safe
