Safar/ सफ़र

सफ़र

मंजिल तो हर कोई देखो एक ना एक दिन पायेगा

कैसे बीता था सफ़र याद ये रह जायेगा
कौन था सफ़र में साथ,कौन साथ छोड़ गया
बना कौन सफ़र में सीढ़ी कौन हाथ छोड़ गया
लेखा जोखा इतना ही याद बस रह जायेगा
कैसे बीता था सफ़र याद ये रह जाएगा |
मुश्किलों में डटे रहे या थक के हाल छोड़ दिया
फूल मिले खुश रहे या काँटों ने तोड़ दिया
कैसे काटा था समय याद ये रह जायेगा
कैसे बीता था सफ़र याद ये रह जायेगा |
रास्ते अनेक थे मंजिल को पाने के
तुमने राह नेक चुनी थी मुकाम पाने को
अलग राह जो चले थे उनसे बवाल किया
या बिना मलाल तुमने सबको स्वीकार किया
राह कटी कैसे थी याद ये रह जाएगा
कैसे बीता था सफ़र याद ये रह जाएगा
मंजिल तो हर कोई देखो एक ना एक दिन पायेगा |

Gutter Journalism

Posted on

Since Eric Alagan

has wrapped his post- Gutter- 33 word flash-fiction-  I thought why not post it here as a poem.

            Gutter

Journalist from the gutter press
in search of some sensational story
or picture
indifferent to the anguish of a mother
searches for a suitable title
ignores cries of the mother
asking for help

as her child falls in the gutter

( Breaking News-  xx%##*****#)

Inspired by

Cockerel Feathers by Eric Alagan

 

The rooster and the king

When bereaved

Of their feathers and crown

The real worth is known

One  on the platter and

One out of throne

Elegance

Posted on

Elegance

is all about keeping one’s grace,style and composure

in all aspects of life

whether having success and happiness

or feeling little low and  down

or elegance is rather being like The Sun

who keeps its elegance, beauty and composure

always intact

whether rising up or whether setting down

~ Indira

Take A Break

Posted on

When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is ,in life a lot of tension
Take a break,
Take a break, and introspect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break,
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,
Take a break and meditate.

 

( My advice ” Take a Break ” was taken, very seriously and literally by my son.)

 

Proceed my child, proceed

Proceed my child, proceed,

With smile on your face ,

With positivity and grace,

With compassion in your heart,

Proceed my child , proceed.

With strength in your mind,

leaving weakness behind,

With stars in your eyes,

Proceed my child,  proceed.

With progress as your aim,

All the hardship you can tame,

With determination and strength,

Bonita Mukherjee- My grand daughter

Proceed my child, proceed

Quality Speaks

Posted on

Little ego for self-esteem
Patience when you go off beam
Stubbornness when you think you are just
Politeness is always a must
Hunger for success in life
Grace whenever there is strife
Anger to stand when someone is abused
Presence of mind when you are confused
Righteousness when there is a fight
Calmness when situation is tight
Little selfishness to make yourself happy
Peace of mind so you are not snappy
Conscience to stay away from vice
Strength when difficulties arise

 

A Prayer

O God ! please let me have


Jealousy, greed, selfishness,haughtiness,

hatred,cruelty and lust

as my enemies.

Ego, stubbornness, anger, hunger

mind and body

as my slaves

.Love,positivity, compassion, compatibility,

kindness,courage and righteousness

as my companions.

And You and my conscience

as my master.

AMEN.
