Happy Festivities

Happy Diwali to all here.
Sharing a few musings from my mother.



Tamaso ma Jyothirgamaya.

On this Diwali let us
Illuminate our hearts.
Ignorance n impediments
Vanish in that brilliance.

Let Faith, prayer, compassion
And humility fill the place
While false beliefs, prejudices
Hatred & anger
Dissolve without a trace.

Past year has taught us
Many lessons.
Many have learnt
The real values our lives need.


A disciplined lifestyle
With resilience will take us far.
The core values our ancestors had
Are not mere lessons in vain.
They are real essence of health
With gratitude, embracing all.

Time to rectify our deeds
Done in the quest to excel.
Mother Nature knows well
How to balance & dwell.
Let’s co-exist without harming,
Valuing all lives, be it in any form.

Let this Festival of Lights
Bring harmony & happiness.
Together we will protect
This precious divine gift
Undoing all our wrongs
Restoring what truly belongs.

A Very Happy Deepawali
To all of you,
Be safe and healthy.
Stay blessed ever.

As we celebrate this beautiful festival of lights lets all take some time to connect with the cosmic lights and feel its blessed¬†presence within us all ūüôā

On Adapting


Every time you find yourself
In a bit of a tussle
You need to adapt to the situation

A little bit of flexibility
Goes a long way
Where you bend but do not break.


Like the reed of grass
That bows down with grace
In the wind of changes.

Like water that flows to fit in
Until it shapes unto & settles itself
Like a lithe cat that braces itself in a fall.


This ability  to turn adversity
On its toes and dance with it
Is a valuable  lifeskill.

This quality of adaptability
The way you adapt, adjust or modify
Says much about you as a person.


It speaks of your capacity
To be receptive to new ideas
And new ways of thinking

To step out of the box.
And perceive with fresh eyes.
Without prejudice.

To understand what is feasible
To be willing to respond  than react
To the changes, in flexibility.



And the ability to be non judgmental
Speaks of your unflappable nature.

In responding with composure.

Adaptability is a necessary skill
To overcome any situation in life
To adapt is to survive.
