Live Life Lovingly!


The Tree Remembers & How!

The Axe Forgets
The Tree Remembers.
…African Proverb

The surging pain of the strike
The slashing that seethes the soul.
The emotions deepen the wound
Such is the exacting nature of the hurt.

But learn you must
To gradually evolve
To let go the past
To grow anew
Arise from the scars
Forget you may not
But forgive you can!

Like the barks of the tree
Although scathed and bruised
By the cuts of the axe
Growing out new branches
And blossoming into spring
Flowering in fortitude…
Strengthening the Soul
Renewing the spirit

For the Bark of a Tree …
Tells the tale of sheer grit
And strength in the grounding.

Your life’s scars are patterns
Life has drawn on you
While you held ground.

Replenish &Regenerate. Only to bloom again in time!

Be proud of who you are.
You are amazing! !




You and I

When you take a step
And hold my hand
As we dance as one
Listening to the tunes
Of our beating hearts.

Moving to the melody
Sensing the synchrony
Sharing the love
Spreading smiles.

Without a word…
We know for sure
Whatever comes along
We can make it all right
However lost we may seem
We will find our way
Yes, you and I.

And the woman labours on!

A balloon seller now she is

Her name does not matter

Married for she was considered a burden

By her very own parents.

A poor girl from the city of Rajasthan India

Surviving, living by and around

Cafes in the city of Pune

Just 19 solar cycles old

Her malnourished body has no signs of youth

She works all day selling balloons in hope

For one square meal to come her way

Often she says she eats only once in the day

If she is lucky she gets a bite-sized meal.

She wanders around till late evening

and sells her wares outside the hip street cafes

Often times to children and some for grown-ups too

My daughter is all of 19 too

Was visiting the cafe with friends

She chanced upon her last evening.

Begging her to buy some balloons

She took a bit of time and listened to her woes

She was deeply moved and she fed her dinner

In return, she was gifted a balloon from the heart

And this story above is the truth of this balloon seller’s

Life and existence

That she heard first hand and narrated to me last night

I reflect on how she said…

‘The balloon seller is stoic and yet hopeful’

Her life is a tragic story and pitiful

An account of a woman’s day!

Another day dawns …

They call it Woman’s Day!

The woman labours on

With the same fervour and faith

Like every other day

It makes no difference to such countless women really

If there is a day marked in her favour

Using her name politics is played

Institutions have events and clubs have parties

Felicitating and celebrating in the name of womanhood

When will lives of every female child truly change

As a mother or the daughter or the sister

Maybe there is a recognition and sweet words

from your family and friends for a day or so …

Her life is a mere existence in making through each day and night…

What a day like this going to matter to her.

Really not much.

She is out in the open vulnerable and bare.

Bounded by duty imposed without a right

Carried on in the throes of life and living.

Praying a day will dawn when every life matters.

Where every child is born and raised with love

For the future of this world belongs to them.

Who is your life partner?

Husband /wife…?
Best friend..?

Or someone else… ????

Your real life partner
is Your *Body*

You and your body
stay together from
the beginning of your
life till your last

You enjoy each
relationship in this
world that you feel
is good for you..
But you also play an
important role with
your body.

What you do to your
body is your
responsibility and
that will come back
to You.
The more you care
for your body, the
more your body will
care for You.

What you eat,
What you do for being fit,
How u deal with
stress (physical/mental/emotional),
How much rest you
give to it..
Will decide how your body gonna respond
in your day to day

Remember your
body is the only
permanent address
where You live.

What your body
wants is…,

Your body is your
You are Your real
life partner.

Sharing this above message as they certainly are words to remember!

The Body has always been at the receiving end.
Then there are always issues with the body we have , too thin too fat too muscular too lean too angular too buffed to wiry … sad for we are what we feed ourselves .

Instead of gratitude for the gift of life that gives us our body we focus on actual nonissues, without being able to be content and add to our stress levels ourselves.

Nurture your body.Value the residing space of our living spirit.

Respect the body

Our body is not a machine it needs more than regular fuel in the form of food .
Because we are a web of interconnected cells we thrive in the integration and interdependence of the body mind and spirit .
We need to think well to feel well
We need to eat well to be well
We need to choose well to live well
We need to behave well to thrive in wellness
This is the strength of the interdependence that keeps us going.

Feed the body with love:
Take care to eat right and respect its state of being
Be polite and honest in your ways. Every body can be listening . You are responsible for you can be influencing the apace around you. You are emitting your intentions and thoughts outwards subconsciously
You must remember to rest and care for your body whenever needed.

For whatever way and however you can, it is certainly like turning back the clock into a more productive you!



Taken For Granted!

The worlds thermostat is changing by the day

Global warming is the danger on the way

Although we may not have intended

Aren’t we taking our world for granted?

There is pollution every where

Misuse and appropriation unfair

There is greed and hoarding

Afforestation and land reclaiming

Without any consideration

For the future generation

Aren’t we taking our world for granted?

Hope is always there I know

But there is avarice and corruption in tow

‘Take it slow don’t destroy me… ‘hear the world implore

‘Else there will be nothing left of me as before …’

From the air that we breathe , to the home that we own

Aren’t we taking our World for granted?

To share our thoughts is to know we care

To make a difference is to dare

Trust and hope, all will do the same

Better than just playing the blame game…

Cos we really haven’t got any place else to go

So take the world for granted no more!

On Nurturing : 3

Gamut of Nurturing : Mind body Integration


Nurturing is an integrated spectrum of experience and it is highly recommended in todays times of survival  of the fittest to embalm the body spirit and soul.

What can be nurtured … well almost everything…

From a thought to an idea to a habit to a passion and more . When nurtured , in hope and goodwill there can be transformations in the transitioning of time .

Nurturing is a very vast ocean of unconditional love and support which can perhaps make the nurturer extremely compassionate and even exacting for the good of the nurtured . But perhaps the concept of nurturing needs to change as well with the changing sensibilities of time. 

In such scenario as it presents itself nurturing needs a relook like a time stamp and check on where it is heading often keeping the iterations going to evolve further.

There is a dignity in nurturing

With understanding that arises

In patience tolerance and perseverance

Beyond an attitude of indifference

Nurture in trusting

Heart over mind

Or mind over heart

Is not the question at all …

Nurture  in spirit and soul

With all of your being

In every communication

Or crisis confrontation


Nurture in conscious awareness

Accepting the interconnects

Acknowledging the interdependence

Arising to evolve in life and living.

Nurture knowing truth is eternal

In Spirit, knowing it  is for you to kindle

In Empathy knowing you are because they are

In compassion sensing the suffering and pain.

Nurturing is not an on off act

It is a never ending journey

It is a lesson in  unconditional love

It is a life time of learning in the caring.


To nurture is to arise to any occasion

In hope and goodwill

In strength  of positivity

In light beyond passions.

Nurturing is an art of living

In bringing to light the hidden good

In surfacing with dignity and grace

In knowing the  infinite truth of being.

Nurturing is  in the unfolding resurrection

In transpiring to regeneration

As in such an reviving emergence

Life begets the vital resurgence.


To nurture is allow hope to permeate in all

To nurture is choose to better from before

To nurture is to raise the bar of accomodation

To nurture is to instill faith and bond in trust

To nurture is an emergence of a boundless bond.

A nurturing heart supports and nourishes

A nurturing nature provides care and comfort

A nurturer cultivates and lays the foundation for roots to grow strong and spread .

A nurturing soul is the key to a better future.

Modern Marvels 1

Ingenuity of man is fascinating indeed But when coupled with the passion  it leaves quite an imprint ….

 Here’s a testament of a love story  finding a fixture  in reality .

Have you heard of the STATUES OF LOVE

Located in Batumi, Georgia, the statue of lovers begin to move every night at 7 p.m.And the two figures represent a Muslim boy, Ali, and a Georgian princess, Nino, from a famous 1937 novel  by Azerbaijani author Kurban Said. The tragic story ends with the lovers separated by the invasion of Soviet Russia. This powerful love story has been translated into more than 30 languages.

“Man and Woman” is a 8 meter (26 foot) tall moving steel sculpture by Georgian sculptor Tamara Kvesitadze.
