Everyday is Friendship Day

Posted on

Somewhere in life

There must be someone

To take your hand

And share the torride day.

Without the touch of friendship

There is no life, and we must fade away.

My take on friends and friendship

What are friends there for ?

If not for 
Care, concern and adulation
For being comfortable
In silence and communication
For supporting each other
In every difficult situation
For helping each other
Without humiliation
For accepting each other
Without any discrimination.
———————————

Some Haiku(s) 

1- Friendship can unite

     Different species together

     Miraculous bond

2- True friend and friendship

     Most rare and valuable gift

     Treasure it with care

3- Love, trust, compassion

    Synonymous with friendship

    True friends are a bliss 

4-  If all religions 

      Shed their animosity

       Friendliness survives

5- Who cares for color

     When bond of love is strong

     Friendship matters more

black and white

 

Size does not matter

Caste and creed may be different

Friendship cares for none

affection

Friends! What’s your take on friendship, share with me .

ESE’ S WEEKLY SHOOT&QUOTE CHALLENGE – WINGS

Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.

Rumi

Birds have wings; they’re free; they can fly where they want when they want. They have the kind of mobility many people envy.

The butterfly doesn’t know how long he has to live, but that doesn’t stop him from spreading his wings and his joy.

It is well to fetter the wings of our fancy and restrain its flights.

From your parents you learn love and laughter and how to put one foot before the other. But when books are opened you discover that you have wings.

Helen Hayes

“Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay.”

― Dalai Lama XIV

Five Sentence Fiction – Companion

Five Sentence Fiction – Companion

Someone said ” Truth is stranger than fiction” methinks funny and lovely also.

Companion

He was my companion just for three years and in three years he taught me a lot of things, such as humor, selfless love, how to get whatever he wanted without even muttering a word and how to listen patiently before succumbing suddenly to his undiagnosed illness.

Once when he was one year old, he came running to me, kept his head on my stomach and started whining, I patted him with love and scratched his ears thinking that he was missing me and needs a little pampering.

Just then my maid servant came running furiously, she asked me not to pamper the scoundrel as he had pulled down my mother’s freshly washed white sari and was stamping on it with muddy feet and now the cunning fellow has the guts to seek your sympathy as he was sure to get a smack from her.

The reason behind this was that he got a scolding from my mother for digging out all the newly planted saplings while playing in the garden and was warned not to enter the garden again.

My adorable dog Kutkut  showed his displeasure in this way.

Bhangarh-6

Ruins

Taj Mahal was built for love and Bhangarh was ruined for love.

Bhangarh, a place between Jaipur and Alwar in Rajasthan state of India, built in the 17th century by raja Madho Singh, younger brother of Man Singh, a general of Emperor Akbar’s army, is today famous for its ruins where nobody dares to go after dark, as it is said if one goes it will not return back.

As per the legend goes a tantric smitten by the beauty of  princess Ratnawati, tried to win her love ,added  a love potion in her bowl of oil but the angry princess who has seen him mixing something in the bowl threw the it at a wall which collapsed on the tantric and buried him.

Before dying he cursed the kingdom of Bhangarh that the city would be wiped overnight and would never be inhabited again, except for the temples.

Shortly after his death the city was sacked and destroyed in the Bhangarh-Ajabgarh wars.

Monthly Peace Challenge: Peace Child-

 PLEA OF A CHILD

I am born innocent, full of love and peace.

I am born neither Hindu, Muslim, Christian nor Sikh, Jain or Buddhist.

You brand me with a label of religion without me knowing what a religion is.

Instead of teaching me love, friendship, compassion and compatibility, you teach me to hate people of other religions.

You teach me to hate people of other religion, ideology , color, caste and creed.

I request all the teachers, parents and elder person, please stop teaching me anything.

There will be differences between us as no two people can think alike but we will manage.

We will play, fight and make up if we are not taught to carry on fights on the basis of ego and arrogance.

If you stop fighting with each other and start living in peace and harmony we will automatically learn that.

If you will give respect to people of other religion, caste and creed, you will not have to bother with teaching me anything as we children are  incarnation of love and peace.

*******************************************************************************************************************

The Child-Angel

They clamor and fight, they doubt and despair, they know no end
to their wrangling.
Let your life come amongst them like a flame of light, my
child, unflickering and pure, and delight them into silence.
They are cruel in their greed and their envy, their words are like
hidden knives thirsting for blood.
Go and stand amidst their scowling hearts, my child, and let
your gentle eyes fall upon them like the forgiving peace of the
evening over the strife of the day.
Let them see your face, my child, and thus know the meaning
of all things; let them love you and thus love each other.
Come and take your seat in the bosom of the limitless, my
child. At sunrise open and raise your heart like a blossoming
flower, and at sunset bend your head and in silence complete the
worship of the day.

Rabindranath Tagore

This week its all about the bovines and the products they produce…..

 

Cows are among the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures.  ~Thomas de Quincey
