“Every moment there are a million miracles happening around you: a flower blossoming, a bird tweeting, a bee humming, a raindrop falling, a snowflake wafting along the clear evening air. There is magic everywhere. If you learn how to live it, life is nothing short of a daily miracle.” 
― Sadhguru, Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

Think about it … In our amazing but highly competitive and aggressive society:

  • How many of us truly feel good about ourselves?
  • How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we bestow a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

With the ongoing intention to accept myself with an open heart rather than label myself as “good” or “bad” OR a “success” or “failure”…

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #78

(Today, we have a paragraph as a prompt. Do whatever you can with it. Reflect on it, twist it, break it into pieces and use a phrase or just write if you agree/disagree or whatever you think about it. As usual, there are no restrictions on length or format. Suit yourself.)

PROMPT

“That proves you are unusual,” returned the Scarecrow; “and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
― L. Frank Baum, The Land of Oz

strange

if someone thinks

leaves live and die unnoticed
nature makes sure
you notice them
in every season
by changing their colors
they wither away
for sure
but
not before
they have served
their purpose

Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 77

Woman – Her Journey

journey of the women

could have been

a lot easy

if

nurtured, cared, loved

with

understanding, companionship, compassion, respect, and unity

by their own gender

because

if you are not fair to the people of your own gender

how will you expect

understanding, equality, and respect

fair treatment from others

who don’t treat

even people

of their own gender

fairly

and discriminate by

poor, weak, color, sex, caste and creed

so women

you have to become strong and unite

as the strength lies in unity

नारी ने कहा
हे नर!

मैं तो हमेशा से वहीँ हूँ 

जहाँ मुझे होना था 

न तुम्हारे आगे न पीछे 
न ऊपर न नीचे 
बस बराबरी में
मुझे तो कभी भी महान बनने की चाहत न थी 
तुम ही हमेशा  ऊंचा बनने की होड़ में लगे रहे 
महान बनने के रास्ते तो और भी थे
उन पर चल तुम ईश्वर बन सकते थे 
पर तुमने यह क्या किया   
मुझे नीचा  दिखाने की कोशिश में 
खुद से कमजोर जताने  की ख्वाहिश में 
खुद को महान  दिखाने की चाहत में 
मुझे मेरे अधिकारों से वंचित किया 
मुझ पर बलात्कार और जुर्म कर 
खुद को ही नीचा गिरा कर 
मुझ स्वतः ही  उपर उठा दिया

PROMPT

There is a range of words/phrases to choose from – this week.

PROMPT

1.Disorientation 2. Live forward, look backward 3. You are made of stardust, and to stardust, you will return

        Live forward, look backward

Looking back

tried to please everyone
and sometimes
tried to move the unmovable
failed miserably
frustrated
yet unyielding
as losing control of the situation
hurts your ego
bitter
disheartening
was giving up
then
better sense prevailed
live forward
learn to let go
not easy
though
but sometimes
there is no other way
just learn
when to fight
and when to give in
peacefully

अमानवीय प्रथा का अंत..

Posted on

अश्वनी राघव "रामेन्दु"

दिल्ली सरकार ने हाथ से मैला ढोने की अमानवीय प्रथा को समाप्त करने की दिशा में महत्वपूर्ण कदम उठाते हुए पचास सीवर साफ करने की मशीनों को आज जनता को सुपुर्द कर दिया। कुछ ही समय मे दिल्ली में ऐसी दो सौ मशीनें दिल्ली की गलियों में सीवर सफाई करते मिलेंगी। हालांकि इस योजना को अमल में लाने में कुछ कारणों से विलम्ब हुआ पर जहाँ देश मे प्रतीकात्मक राजनीति करने का माहौल बना हुआ है वहाँ जमीनी स्तर पर अच्छी योजनाओं का लागू होना बेहतर भविष्य की आशा जगाता है। इस योजना का खास पहलू ये है कि ज्यादातर मशीनें सीवर सफाई के दौरान अपनी जान गँवाने वाले परिवार के सदस्यों को दी गईं हैं और उनके लिए ऋण की व्यवस्था भी की गई है। ज्ञात हो कि मात्र दिल्ली में पिछले दस वर्षों में लगभग अस्सी सफाईकर्मी अपनी जान सीवर साफ करते समय गँवा चुके हैं। दिल्ली सरकार…

PROMPT

The challenge this week is a pretty short one – just one word. If you have to look it up, consider yourself safe 🙂

what if everyone becomes sapiosexual

money spent

on painful waxing, makeup products
sweating at the gym, dieting,
all that labor to get six packs
to look attractive
will be saved
grey matter is the only thing
we will be caring  about
and that’s enough
to make us better human being
