PROMPT FOR THIS WEEK
Too much of consumerism
the balance of nature
politicians, businessmen, rich
were busy in money making
as money brings POWER
public, either terrified to raise a voice
or whining for their sorrows, or
oblivious to nature’s balance
accepting all as their destiny, gods fury
Some had a clear vision
the first on to start a movement to save sacred trees
with Bishnoi Villagers
dared to raise a voice and saved the trees
it took 363 lives to awaken the people from their slumbers
then came CHIPKO MOVEMENT
Sundarlal Bahuguna, who explained to villagers
of the importance of trees to the environment
of the soil erosion due to the cutting of trees
of pollution, pure air
very slowly people were awakening
whole India was stirred by
Save Silent Velly Movement
Jungle Bachao Andolan
Narmada Bachao Andolan
All visionaries are doing their bit
what the rest in the world is doing
waiting for the third world war for water
or, consuming to turn this planet a desert?
when the whole world sing in unison
enough is enough
Let us all save the Mother Earth
- “What are you desperately trying to hold on to in your life?
- How is it affecting you?
Then imagine the thing you’re trying to hold on to doesn’t really exist. Envision yourself letting go… and just floating.
How would that change your situation?”
मन कभी वहां था ही नहीं जहाँ इसे होना चाहिए था
शरीर के अंदर रह कर उसे सही राह दिखाना और हुए मंज़िल की ओर ले जाना
पर नहीं उसे तो हर सवाल का जवाब चाहिए था
प्रकृति के सारे रहस्य उसे जानना था
उसी खोज में न जाने कहाँ कहाँ भटका कितनी जगहों की खाक़ छानी
पर कुछ मिला क्या
वही कुत्ते की तरह अपनी ही दुम के पीछे भागने के सिवाय
कुछ भी हासिल हुआ क्या
सब कुछ यहीं था
आँखों के सामने
अपने सम्पूर्ण सौंदर्य में
छिपता, दिखाता , ढंकता, उभरता
पा सको तो पालो मुझको
मैं तो यही हूँ तुम्हारे भीतर
बस पारखी नज़र होनी चाहिए
मुझसे ही चूक हो गयी
” जिन खोजा तिन पाइयाँ , गहरे पानी पैठ,
मैं बैरन ऐसी डरी , रही किनारे बैठ। ”
और अब ,
हर सुबह पूछती है,आज नया करने को कुछ है क्या?
हर रात पूछती है,आज क्या किया,
मन है की भटकाता रहता है
- nomadic heart!
Here is an intriguing picture shared by Harvey Kraft on LinkedIn.
The picture by itself can tell a thousand stories. But I am increasing the complexity a little. Here is a paragraph from another source.
So what exactly happened here? A woman felt powerless because she was unable to let go of a story she was holding onto which made her a victim. Even though she no longer saw this man, her former lover, she carried him within, and over and over again inside was keeping this version of the story alive.
TILL DEATH DO US APART
It seems there is no strength left in me.
I feel completely exhausted.
I can’t go on like this, I want to quit.
It has happened several times in my life.
Shamefull I accept that I had wanted to quit every time I felt exhauseted
Everytime my conscience nudged me
‘How could you quit, there is so much to do, everyone depends on you?’
I was young then so summoned my willpower and got up every time.
But now with age catching up, it seems an uphill task.
I’m lying on the floor, helpless, hoping to go…There comes an extending hand for help,
How could you be so desperate? Didn’t you promise, ‘ till death do us apart’?
Oh yes, I remembered.
Indeed how could I leave him in the middle of our journey?
He was always there to support me, never grumbled, criticized or belittled me.
What I was complaining about?
With a feeling of guilt, I grab the extended hand thankfully.
Indeed the show must go on ’till death do us apart.’
Didn’t once I advised everyone that’
When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is, in life a lot of tension
Take a break and retrospect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break and get good rest.
When dissatisfaction, and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break and meditate.
