HAIKU # 139,140 &141 Memories- A reminder of Free will

 

Melting in nature
Enriched my wandering soul
Memories sink deep

           Joy of reliving
         The journeys of yesterdays
        Captured forever

   In Today’s lockdown
      Divulging into the past
             Nature comes alive

 

I can not be there where my heart💜 is , so I took a trip down the memory lane.

GRATITUDE MOMENTS-MOTHER’S DAY

Smt. Shanti Devi

Smt Pushpa Vaid

When I look back at my formative years two women come to my mind. Both my grandmothers . One my mothers mother (Shanti Devi) & other my mothers *Massi (Pushpa Vaid)
*Mother’s sister.

Today I pay tribute to them for being exceptional human beings. Humble, kind , gentle yet strong and well-read. None of them had much formal education. But their knowledge of Hindu scriptures and Vedas amazes me even today.

They taught me the value of time. Reading RAMAYANA, GITA and other books during their free time instead of gossip. Telling us stories of our rich cultural and religious heritage in the form of stories and bhajans (devotional songs) and teaching by their own example the simple and honest ways of life. They may not have their names mentioned in History but would definitely be part of my storytelling to my grandchildren as I owe them my value system.

My deepest Gratitude and respect for these two amazing women on ‘MOTHER’S DAY” ❤❤💙
