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…

Their rules become your game

An insightful post by Reena.

The Influence of
Social Media

The reach of the social media is utilized

  • to project politically motivated opinions and
    ideologies.
  • to drown the voices of sanity by trolling.
  • To generate user content for the business
    entities which make their millions through it.
  • To divide the population into manageable chunks,
    so that they never become a powerful unified lobby. Issues that can whip up a
    frenzy of emotion are carefully chosen.
  • To divert attention from other issues that can
    expose the Lobbies. People are busy celebrating ‘never-heard-before’ Days and Weeks,
    or analysing the implications of an isolated statement, rather than think about
    the economic issues or corruption in high echelons.
  • To crowd-source ideas for rationalization of
    their actions. The same are immediately repackaged and sold.
  • To collect qualitative and quantitative data on
    opinions and waves, which is used for conversion to vote banks.
  • To encash on popular sentiment.
  • To collect inputs…

सलाह

सीपियाँ/Indira's Hindi blog

प्यार है तो जताया भी करो 

दर्द है तो बताया भी करो 

रूठे हुओं को मनाया भी करो 

जज़्बात छिपाये तो 

टीस उठेगी 

छिपाने की जगह दिखाया भी करो 

ज्यादा दिन दूर रहने से 

दूरियां बढ़ जाती हैं 

कभी कभी दोस्तों से मिल आया भी करो 

बिन मांगी सलाह बहुत देते हो मेरी जान
कभी अपनी सलाह पर भी अमल कर आया करो

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #90

PROMPT FOR THIS WEEK

The word ‘compromise’ is just a theme. It need not appear in the piece. There is no harm if it does appear, or a synonym. The choice is yours.

मौत ने पूछा

ज़िंदगी एक छलावा है
एक झूट है
हर दिन हर पल तुम्हारा साथ छोड़ती जाती है
फिर भी तुम उसे प्यार करते हो
मैं एक सच्चाई हूँ अंत तक तुम्हारा साथ निभाती हूँ
पर फिर भी तुम मुझसे नफरत करते हो
मुझसे डरते हो
मुझसे समझौता कर लो
फिर कोई डर  तुम्हें  डरा न पायेगा
मैंने कहा
तुम सत्य हो शाश्वत हो
अनिवार्य हो
पर तुमसे कैसे समझौता करलूं
तुम्हारी टाइमिंग  बहुत गलत होती है
तुम गलत समय पर गलत लोगों को ले जाती हो
तुम गलत समय पर गलत तरीके से आती हो
पूछो उन बदनसीब अभिवावकों से
जिन्होंने खोय अपने लाल असमय
 पूछो उन से ,
जिन्होंने ने गवाए अपने परिजन
आतंकवादियों के हाथों
 उम्र थी जान गवाने की
फिर जो मजबूर, पीड़ित , बीमार
मरने की प्रार्थना करते हैं
उन्हें तुम तड़पने को छोड़ देती हो
बच्चों ,जवानों को अपना शिकार बनाती हो
कैसे करलूं तुमसे समझौता
तुम कड़वा सच हो, अनिवार्य हो पर
न्यायसंगत नहीं
काम से काम मेरी नज़र में तो नहीं
ज़िन्दगी लाख छलावा सही
मीठा झूट सही
पर सुन्दर है जीने का,
लड़ने का हौसला देती है
——————————————————

sometimes we look back

thinking
what if we hadn’t
made the compromises
 life would have been different for
better
or for worse
but
there is no use cribbing now
life
any way is a
a mixed bag of
hopes and disappointments
dreams and realities
victories and defeats
triumphs and disasters
sometimes you win
sometimes you lose
sometimes you have to  run against the tide
make compromises
if need arises
just be sure it’s not alone you
who makes compromises
rules should be
the same for everyone
don’t lose your heart
don’t complain
count your blessings
be proud of whatever you have achieved
keep your composure
spine stretched
shoulders straight
heart full of gratitude
head held with pride

Un-existing

Reena Saxena

 corridors of power
are too narrow
to accommodate
my flippant insouciance

mirrors
too sarcastic
to absorb
my bloated self

libraries
too intellectual
to accept
my base wisdom

temples
too bigoted
to understand
my surrender

I float around
In search of kindred spirits
and bounce back
from hollowness of oceans
