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

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.
