Sometimes comments on a post germinate a seed of creativity.
A compliment in appreciation of a life lived in dare and adventure on a fellow writer’s post… evoked a reply from him that reflected many sentiments in a sentence … that he would never wish to advise another to live so! And yet is proud of the journey that was, is and will be!
Sharing my reflections to it…
Every Life is unique
And has all the potential to be a masterpiece.
All is in the choices one makes!
Speaking of a life lived on the edges
Or a life safely sailed in smooth waters
Never reaching the rapids
Both have a reason and purpose to be
For as the purpose reveals itself in time.
The life in question will have answers to itself
Why it was the way it chose
Why it lived a life
Of dare or in safety?
And it will know
It has served its purpose
In simplest of ways
Or charted new ways for others
In adventure or sacrifices
All is a play of life
Asserting itself over and over again.
All said and done
I believe every life is best lived
By the spirit and soul that is given the life!
For it is meant to have
all the wherewithal of existence.
Every life is best lived by itself
So while we can appreciate
The adventure of lifes moment
No life should be wished
or advised for another
As each is meant to be!
And yet through it all
in hope for a better world…
It matters to be seen
Whether the given life
Is simply existing or living the moments!
That is in the power of choices we make!
A picture that is open to so many interesting interpretations…
Is this a stairway to heaven
The path that sets you free
Steps that lead the way
To the light of eternal truth
Your life is given to you
A knowing is bestowed upon you
In hope that you will seek
And find the truth of your being.
All answers are within you
To sense and understand
Life is both hell and heaven if you wish.
All it needs is a stairway to the within.
In the rigours of life and living
Find those moments that move you beyond simply existing!
Search not the whole world over
In confusion and chaos over the emerging illusions.
For in all the facade of perceptions
The truth is simple and visible
If you choose to actually notice.
Seek if you must
The truth of your own life.
The purpose of your own being.
Choose to be responsible.
To acknowledge the wonder you are
Make friends with your inner self.
Treat it with care and consideration
Align your thoughts and action.
You will soon find within yourself
The stairway to the heaven in you!

In the lives of many women
Being strong is not an option
It is a necessity!
In a world riddled with inequalities
In a world full of double standards
Standing up for yourself
Becomes a tool for survival.
In those tricky moments
In a blink of an eye
Push comes to shove
Pleasure turns to pain
Hurt and betrayal
Seems to fill the air
There she is, left standing alone
To fend for herself on her own.
It is then that she meets fear in the eye
Faces the dark side of humanity
Sensing power in her vulnerability.
Who says a woman is weak?
Watch her rise like a phoenix!
Tremendous is her tenacity!
Resourceful is her resiliency!
The strength of a woman
Braves through the rising storm
Daring beyond the hurt and pain
Fighting through the wrong doings
She moves on to heal and build
In hope and faith in a new morrow
For she knows in her heart
Tommorow is another day!
My dedication to Women all around the world!
Every Day is Women’s Day !
Happy Women’s Day!
Years of conditioning
May often bring the habit of self criticism
Avoid self sabotaging the self
Often times we try to be too self righteous for our own good!
This makes way for a certain self doubt and self denial that disrupts our growth.
We are human and truly let us be so
We have our foibles and our feats to own up to.
We can accept the applause with dignity of being in a simple thank you!
We have no necessity to act small, helpless or defensive in every moment.
We are best serving ourselves
When we begin to express the potential in our being
Often we cover down in fear of being judged or criticized
Know this world is large enough for us all and more
Each of us must play our part in living here
We are all entitled to a life of dignity and we need to sense that in our being.
So let us change our song
From criticism to approval
And watch the change this single act of deliberation
Can bring about in your own life as well as in others around you
Watch the positive transformations
Through these three simple acts
Approve Appreciate and Applaud!
To all the women out there… when you see yourself in good light,
Simply know you begin the shine some more!
As a daughter of a retired Air force man who has served the nation at the borders in the two wars in his time, I have seen the effect of those service years up close on him. Today all those experiences are a memory that makes for some interesting dinner conversations. But nevertheless as a youngster I have witnessed how much the rigours of training set deep imprints on the psyche of the soldiers.The mindset and attitude is strengthened and trained to bear the consequences of war.
Serving the armed forces creates a never say die attitude that makes me concur on this again and again … You can take a man out of Air force but you can never take Air force out of the man!
Every soldier is different no doubt with his own set of life experiences and background . But what is strikingly similar and significant is the solidarity of spirit to serve the nation at all costs.
Amazing is the spirit of a soldier indeed!
In hope of the Abhinandhan Effect
In the wake of the release of our brave soldier in today’s times there arises a question and kindled hope in the hearts of the families of the now well known list of the Missing 54 (and who knows how many more ) Pow’s of the 71 war .
The families are still hoping that they are alive and awaiting their return someday sooner than later.
Recently there were media reports that when Indian delegates visited to check the prisons that the POWs were supposedly held they would be shifted from jail to jail so that there would be no trace of them .So without proof of their existence the case was difficult to pursue.
Perhaps if the pressure that was exerted today for the return of our soldier through all channels right from governments to the media photos of his capture and his leaked video clips, which made the world notice, if it was possible then, it would have possibly made a difference in freeing them as well.
For the sake of the anguishing families that sincerely still pray for their return …. perhaps some way will materialize and they will be released as well .
Hope is here to stay!
