Why my hands are rough and coarse

M

 

 

Dedicating to the every woman 👩. I am sure this has been faced by most of us at one time or others.  An introspection for The children (irrespectivs of gender) and husbands

 

                    
 

Why are hands rough and coarse?

Is a question I am asked

By my own children and others

Sometimes accused sometimes ridiculed

                Doing the dishes countless times a day,

               Using the detergent full of chemicals,

                Using washing powders full of sodas

               Not withstanding the harshness

              The clothes fade away after a few washings

               I use it day after day,

                Year after year till my end,

                 So that you eat in clean dishes

                 And wear clean clothes

                You dare to ask ????????

                Why are my hands rough and coarse ?

When we are going out

Why I can not dress-up properly ?

Wear high heels and do my hair?

Has anyone spared a single thought?

After one hour of ironing

And few hours of cleaning the house 

My back is stiff and feel too tired,

To even think of going out.

But still with a smiling face

Join you in your fun

 You dare to ask???????

Why I can not dress-up properly ?

Wear high heels and do my hair?

                     I agree world won’t stop when I am gone

                      You may hire helping hands

                      To cook,wash and do the dishes

                     But you will not find anyone waiting 

                     To serve you hot meals and watch you lovingly

                     When you browse your mobile while eating

                    Oblivious to the fact that I was also hungry

I don’t expect any accolades or rewards

But then don’t deserve insensitivity on your part

You may find many friends and well-wishers 

But there would never be a blessing hand

Or a warmth of selfless embrace

Love me for your own sake

So that you don’t feel guilty 

When I am gone.

ALONE-  not Lonely

 

M

               (My morning friends and I Alone) 


I am not lonely when alone,

It is in the crowd where I am lost,

The smiles, the laughters so much noise,

After a while seems all in vain,

That is why my dear friends,

I don’t feel lonely when with myself.

The unburdening of pretence is relaxing,

                     The emptying of thoughts is rejuvenating,

                      The bird watching is fascinating,

                       When only I am around,

                       That is why my dear friends,

                       I don’t feel lonely when with myself.

The sand, the ocean,the sky above,

Seting Sun the rising Moon the twinkling stars,

The changing of moments could be felt,

Only when the silence is my best friend,

That is why my dear friends,

I don’t feel lonely when with myself.

Enjoy -KILLING

M

 There is so much to kill,

Why just kill time doing nothing?

Killing can be so productive,

ĶILL

            The ego

               The stubbornness

                 The anger

                   The greed

                     The hate

                       The guilt

There is so much to kill within yourself

Then why look outside ?

Why kill the innocent people?

Why kill the innocent animals?

Why kill the trees  our lifeline?

Live and Let Live

As Ours is the most unpredictable existence.

Peaceful beings- Are we?

   Today’s post is dedicated to Mother TERESA who gave millions of  people right to DIGNIFIED living. Today is her Birthday                           

M

We the human beings are peace loving and compassionate, 

Our nature is love and unity and humanity,

Is’nt it the biggest illusion we have of ourselves?

Humans have the power to think, create and speak,

So we are the superior of all beings,

 But are we?

                         Our intellect since time immemorial have destroyed,

                          Destroyed what ever has come in our path of progress,

                          Then be it Jungles,the lands, the mountains or water-ways,

                          We brought extinction of other peaceful beings,

                           Even the flora and fona has not escaped our wrath,

                           Still we pride ourself of being superior of all beings

                           Think are we?

We find various reasons to discriminate,

Powerful supress the weak and the oppressed

We fight, abuse and humiliate.our own 

Excuses these  inhuman acts by giving it a name,

Then be it religion, country or simply an ideology,

Still we pride ourself of being superior of all beings

Think are we?

                  The peace, love and respects for all,

                  If this awareness was not forgotten at all,

                 Then there was no need for RAMA & KRISHNA

                 To show the path of truth and love

                 For BUDDHA to teach the path of Peace

                 For JESUS to protect the innocent and weak,

                 Still we pride ourself of being superior of all beings

                  Think are we?
     Today we are living in times where positive words  Love, respect, dignity , peace are becoming difficult to achieve. If we want our children to live happily and peacfully then we have to lead by example

I -Salt and Sugar

     M            

I am like Salt & Sugar without go,

Dissolving into many flavours of life,

Yet have an identity which is only mine,

My flexibility is not my weakness,

It is the strenght of my character,

It liberates me yet not let me lose my uniqueness .

I wrote this long time back. Today just felt like sharing again

Stillness

 

M

 

wp-image-86556698

I use to stand here and think,

And run to act upon the ideas

Today I stand here empty of any thoughts

Just marvelling at the vastness of the Sun

Brightening the horizon while fading away

Spreading the stillness till the next day

I love the stillness sipping inside me

I am no more in a rush to run with my thoughts

As it is a never-ending chase where none wins.

MOHANJI & me 

M

On the day of Gurupurnima, simple words of thanks to MOHANJI, the GURU whose consciousness connectivity is itself a journey to fearless living.

 

wp-image--387642874

 

Silence only silence all around me

Today I am alone just with me

But I don’t feel bored or lonely

           Today I am at peace inside and outside of me

           Today I am the journey and destination for me

           Today I am the only reason for actions taken by me

           Today I am the result of thoughts generated by me

           Today I own the responsibility of BEING me

The change may not be absolute or error free

At times I am tempted towards my earlier me

Surrounded by self doubts want to give up on new me

But then silently dispelling darkness within me

Filling pure white light all around me

Comes my GURU , my guide MOHNJI

              He is not present enough to touch  his feet

             Or to feel his hands blessing me

            That is the beauty and magic of his personality

             HE keeps the lamp of guidance burning for all beings

            His consciousness invisible blanket of connectivity

            The moment of Silence when even the breath is still

           Is the time of awareness of being one with MOHANJI

          HIS grace guide us towards the infinity

(me is not ego but the CONSCIOUS)

A /एक  ★ Single Power ★ Part -I

M

A drop of water shakes hand with others,

United they give life to the mother Earth,

Forms the springs, the rivers and the ocean,

Evaporates one by one to form the clouds,

Then pour down in the form of rain,

A drop is what farmer’s hopes are pinned upon,

A drop is sigh of relief for those worried face,

It is also the reason for the loss of precious lives

   ( farmers suicides are the most unfortunate , and can be avoided if the Government and non-governmet agencies can help them in rain-water harvest techniques. it is not just loss for the family but to the world at large)
        A drop of tear shakes hand with others,

        And flows in a stream from the eyes,

        Sometimes as a symbol of gratitude,

        Sometimes a joy of reunion,

        Sometimes as an expression of grief,

        Sometimes flows without any reason,

       Just to cleanse the soul.

A seed grows into mighty tree standing tall,

A grass spreads to form carpet of greens,

A seed gives a fruit delicious to eat,

A flower on barren branch gives it a lease of life.

             A storm destroys everything in it’s wake,

             A careless word breaks strongest bonds,

            A loving gesture mends the broken hearts,

            Hate is taking away thousands of innocent lives,

            “PEACE” is a word which is striving to survive,

             A word has the power to change the world,

            So please think what you want to say after the “A”

LOVE-Tender & Strong

M

Precious is the love in all forms, 

It is pure, untouched and undiluted, 

It is colorless, formless and limitless, 

It is fearless, selfless and boundless. 

 It bind the hearts and the soul, 

It gives courage to move ahead, 

It is strong enough to face fiery storms, 

Have you ever wondered at the same time, 

It is so very delicate and tender, 

That it can not take the weight,

The weight of deceit or fraud, 

It crushes and crumbles at once, 

So please handle IT with utmost care.

Footprints-An Impression

M

Footprints on the sand so deep and intense

Leaving a trail behind,

A wave comes rushing to fill up the steps

Leaving nothing behind,

Why then we repeatedly walk on edge for

Leaving nothing behind,

Even the impression of the journey is only in mind

Leaving nothing behind,

So my dear friends be grateful for forgetfulness

It leaves nothing behind.
