Inspiration-Guest post

You were there, sitting on your bed silently …

Like a bird waiting for Spring

The small hospice room where they put you

Looks like this branch of chestnut tree.

Your withered hands hook in their language

Your attachment to the world, your desire to leave a mark

To the  time that goes by, and your words reflect your will

To trust God, who knows your soul.

At 97, you spend days

Far from Italy that you left behind 

You’re going to fall asleep in this distant land

Whose language or saints, you don’t know .

Sweet soul, sweet woman, so withered and serene

God was injected into your veins

You radiated kindness and patience

I was learning in silence, a lesson in existence

TIME- THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIFT

The Smiles, the happiness, the carefree enjoyment

Love

Flowing like wind

Nurturing like water

Limitless like Sky

Budding and blooming little ones

Today what they are getting

Tomorrow they will.know

The value of these moments

And the selfless Love of their mentors

Some give money

Some give food

Some give materials

But far and few who give  TIME

The most valuable and above all

Today Saluting those people

And their mission

“Unconditional, limitless and selfless Spirit of GIVING”

Grandma , Grandson and the Lockdown Classroom

Grandma Mrs Chander Ummatt

         Grandson Sumer S. Sandhu

like the Sun she shines bright

Inspiring and loving

She is GURU in true sense

We bow to her with gratitude

And thank ALMIGHTY 🙏🏻

For her presence in our life

This lockdown is an extraordinary situtaion. Face masks, sanitizers, work from home and online education is the new normal.

Help the world has become a new endeavor and virtual world has been choked with all kind of teachings, guidance and knowledge to ease the woes of all. And in the process missing out the immediate surroundings.

On the teachers day (even though bit late on that) I salute the extraordinary GURU in my life- My MASSI (mother’s sister) . When people are running out to save the world, she is quietly working her magic to make things easy for just one little one -her grandson Summer.

Sumeir is just 4 years old, for him online classes and learning doesn’t mean a thing. He is naughty, fun-filled, innocent and playful child. But this society doesn’t care for his dreamy world , for them what matters is piling the syllabus, discipline , homework on to him.

To make life easy for her grandson Chander created such a beautiful and unique concept of learning with a dedication and passion that it just left me speechless. I have dedicated several posts to her, but this is not just a post. It is gratitude for her selfless and loving personality.

When I asked her what is keep her so busy that she hardly has time to talk ?

Her simple reply humbled me . In her own words

“I have created a small class room in the home to create an environment for joyful learning for my grandson Sumer,who is 4 yrs old.l just wanted to share with you because its not only helping Sumer but me also.lt proved to be a stress buster during lockdown period,ofcourse it is a continuous process.Now l am strong believer,if at all we can do something for our children that is going to help us more physically,mentally,emotionally and give us a feel of fulfillment.”

The video and the pictures were clicked just impromptu. she did not have any idea that I would be uploading it here.

Inside her magic bag

                 Hidden deep

Her love and generosity

                       Endless

My eyes brim with tears

                      Gratitude

For her priceless presence ❤

In her huggs resides

                   my 🌏World
