CELEBRATION OF WOMANHOOD

         (Credits  Nicky Ummatt)

Each of my adornment from my bindi on forehead to my payal  on my ankles  is a celebration of my womanhood. This post is dedicated to Sola Shingar (sola means 16)  on festivals of Karvachauth 

 

Bangles adoring my arms

Are  not  just an ornament

The  music it creates 

Is my companion whole day

A solace that I am not alone 

When I work on the fields whole day

When I do household chores

While my loved ones are away.

Mehndi adorning my hands

                   Is not just a custom to perform 

                  It is a blessing of love in my life

                  It’s intricate patterns so beautifully drawn

                 Yet neither have a start nor an end

                 Just like the cycle  of life

BHARAT MY PRIDE (15.08 Precious moments)

Independence Day is not just about celebrating freedom but a day to be grateful to each and every person who participated in the struggle and sacrificed his/her life.

Freedom is a basic right of every living being on this earth. But for human beings it is not just right but also a duty not to step on others freedom. We consider ourselves most intelligent of all species, but unfortunately the most harmful and dangerous too. No other beings try to impose on others territories or exploit the environment for their own selfish wishes. They only use what is necessary for existence and don’t create imbalance.

Celebrating Independance Day with unfurling the National flag and singing the National Anthem is symbolic. The true freedom is the freedom of thoughts and ideas and extending hands to the needy.. True freedom may come the day we enslave our greediness to hoard more than what is actually sufficient for our existence

        Freedom is in brotherhood

       Freedom is in helping others

Freedom is in collective progress

          Freedom is in harmony and Love

          Freedom is in letting others live in PEACE

To reach the stars above,

To feel the love of mother earth,

To simply live in freedom,

Precious Moments

M

​                      (Anil uncle and massi -our sunshine)


Precious moments in my treasure box, 

They are my inspiration and memories too, 

They are the reason for my gratitude, 

He opened his arms and heart for us, 

He is the blessing of the Father above,

 He shelters us from storms of life, 

He held our hands when tides were rough, 

Numerous moments of his love & compassion, 

Are Priceless moments of my treasure
 
I don’t believe in celebrating a particular day, as all days are worth celebrating.

But the Father’s Day is a reminder to us that we lost our father, but  someone said that he is not like a father but a father. Thanks Anil Uncle for standing with us in our best and worst times. Walking on the path of life, we have looked up to you for guidance and support, and you have always stood by and for  us.

Distant not so Distant

M

. . .  A glimpse of my world. . . 

( Just couldn’t find any frame with all of you, so please forgive me) 

There are millions and millions in this World, 

A few millions in the country, 

A million or so in the State, 

A few thousands in the town, 

A few hundred in the area, 

A hundred or so in the neighborhood, 

A few in the same house, 

But the one residing in my heart, 

I can count on my fingers tips,

They are never Distant from my thoughts, 

As they are in my Gratitude list everyday.

LOVE – A BEAUTIFUL MESSAGE 

M

A friend shared this.  A monk explains the love, attachments and relationships so beautifully 

When people say we love someone, their expectations from the relationship rises. And they feel the other person is duty-bound to fulfill all their desires. They are looking to bind others to them, want them to think their way. 

In school time, we used to  trace maps for geography  by using tracing paper, so that we can have exact shape and size. (those days there  was no web to just take a print out). People also expect the same in relationships, especially in marriage and love. They consciously or otherwise want their partners to be like them.

Gratitude – ‘Precious Moments’ 

M

Today I am posting my 50th thought, this one for my Son Arihant (Twinkle). He gave me one of my most cherished relation – MASSI


Precious moments in my treasure box, 

They are my inspiration and memories too, 

They are the reason for my gratitude, 

When I held him in my arms for the  first time, 

The Twinkling eyes filled my heart with love, 

His warmth enriched my soul, 

Priceless moment out of my treasure box.

They are my inspiration and memories too, 

They are the reason for my gratitude, 

When my son held  me in his arms, 

Silent embrace worth thousand words,

Priceless moment for my treasure box.
