Dance with all of you!

Two left feet or two right feet
Just learn to swing to the beat
And find the rhythm of your own heart.
And learn to dance and make a healthy start…

Just a little step and sway …
Bring the balance in your way.
Yes all we need is just a ‘Dance’ everyday!

Reality Bites

Acknowledgement is a step towards improvement.

Realizing the effects and the cause is relevant to change.

Our world is a gift we have in life

We are interweaved in this tapestry of life and living.

And we are strengthened in the interconnects in between.

Yet we have distanced ourselves

The advancements create gadgets of convenience

But humane care and connection is distanced

We behave as if we are entities self centric without consideration

Humanity in humans is deeply affected

But we are yet to understand

The consequences our actions

Truth is reality bites.

Yet hope is here to stay.

A scale of truth

Thought provoking

In a matter of scale

We are destroying nature

Than developing with nurture.

Global warming, melting ice

Depleting forest cover

Flood & earthquakes

All a sign of stark changes…

Yes our world is evolving

We are innovating, exploring

New frontiers in space

But how far have we really arrived?

Breathe in Peace

Own your breath

Inhale the good

Let go the spurious

Anything that never matters

Is bound to bounce off.

What is necessary receive

With atmost regard.

Your breathe holds the key

Unlock the healing potential

As you breathe deeper

With all of your awareness

In every inhale and exhale.

Breathe in peace.

Waltz of the lights

Waltz of lights on the water….

Down the memory lane

A boat, a river, and I.

A canal trip on the River Reie

Beautiful Bruges at night

Shimmering lights

Dancing on water

Ever so gently

Creating a moment

Worth a capture!

Taking life lightly

Birds fly higher and higher

As if they are as light as a feather

They take themselves lightly!

Full of faith trust & self belief .

To be able to soar high

Onwards & upwards

Choose to let go of burdens

That create density

In thoughts words & deeds

Unfold the wings of freedom

Unfurl in the lightness of being

There is joy in sensing freedom

Thats who you truly are!

Life Management

Tenets of life and living.

Honesty speaks the truth of Integrity

Simplicity speaks of true abundance.

Courtesy extended speaks of true power.

Silence speaks much, without a sound.

Dedicated to Batchmates.

It doesn’t matter if its the Army Navy or Airforce once in the forces you are always ready with a Salute!

You can take a man out of the army

But can not take the army out of him!

Humour in Uniform indeed!

Sharing a fun forward that came my way!

One day a Colonel from the Army, fell into a well. The soldiers would throw a rope into the well and pull the Colonel out. The moment the Colonel would come up, the soldiers would leave the rope snap to attention and salute. The Colonel would fall back into the well. This happened many times.

Someone suggested that a Brigadier be requested for help-because HE wouldn’t have to salute the Colonel. So one Brigadier arrived. He threw the rope into the well and the Colonel grabbed it. The Brigadier began pulling the rope. As soon as the Colonel reached the top of the well, he spotted the Brigadier. He immediately left the rope and saluted. And he fell back once more, into the well.
There was total silence. Then everyone heard the desperate Colonel’s voice from down below
*”You idiots – get hold of a batch mate !!”*
MORAL OF THE STORY: Batchmates ARE important ! They can save your life!
(Dedicated to all batchmates)

You

In your difficult moments

That seem to take a toll on you

Trust there is a reason to living

There is purpose to your being

While your faith seems to shake

Understand there is only one you

You are power, undefinable & limitless

Your story has a shape and form

All your own that you are meant to share

Your experiences have made you who you are.

There is a power of infinite expression in every living cell you are.

Have you truly explored the power of you?

Quintessence of Management



In management its good to rememberTime is borrowed, so has a priceToil is bought so has a priceEffort is expected in a priced dealBut some things are priceless!They can never be bought.


For they are intrinsic in natureThey come from you, no matter the dealTalk of loyalty, initiative & enthusiasmThey are all intrinsically motivated.





No amount of money can keep them consistentTo have value for time, have value for peopleTo have a dedicated effort, respect the people who are dedicated at workTo lead with care and considerationTo be humane in the ways of management.




For to get respect you have to earn it by showing the way.By deeds of kindness and appreciationNo amount of criticism can do what nurturing in appreciation can do.Appreciation is an evolved method of improving productivity.Such is the quintessence of management.Savvy

Nurturing nature

Nurturing aspect of nature

Is deeply embedded in its ways

When leaves dry out and fall

They are meant to nurture the earth

Nourishing it to grow again

Such is the self-sustaining ways of nature.

Nothing is wasted all is fuel to growth of another

All in the strength of interconnections in  the interdependence.




To nourish and nurture

In the circle of creation & regeneration

So much to learn of its resourcefulness

Nature nourishes and how!

Learning from a free spirit



Today I write about my dear and very loving father…

Perhaps the most uncomplicated man.

A paragon of the free spiritedness of a child.

He has an uncanny ability to be happy like a child.

What he desires are little things like a child.

Yes, he knows how to get what he  desires

But the happiness he feels & expresses, in the most ordinary things

That is his blessing of simplicity.


Life can be an epitome of adventure and adaptability.

It can challenge you & test your resilience & reserves

But to be able to be in touch with the inner child in you.

No matter how  life takes its toll on you

Is the strength in the vulnerability.



I dedicate these musings today to my eternally ‘young at heart’ father.

For from him, I have imbibed many beautiful learnings
Will share three, especially relevant here…

  • To be able to find happiness in the ordinary things.
  • To be able to stay hopeful, light & positive, no matter the density in the moment.
  • To think well of all and make way for happy thoughts and share goodwill.

  • God Bless You Dad!

    Circle of life & living





    Life and businesses

    Circle of life and living
    Nature leaves many lessons
    The falling  leaves
    Are an excellent metaphor…

    Learning to let go
    In  hope, trust and faith
    Of the balance the circle
    Is an indicator of the adaptability.


    Business is a big leap of faith
    In every business
    That has thrived  and survive
    Inspite of the changing seasons.



    Seeds to a plant
    Plant to a tree
    Trees begin maturing
    Like life is meant to flow….

    Buisness too are meant to grow
    As the processes are strengthened
    Nourishing &nurturing the foundation
    Harnessing synergies  in the energies.




    There is growth in the momentum.
    There are dependences and beliefs
    But like the nature of life
    Old has to make space for the new…



    To flourish and sustain
    The seasonal setbacks
    And survive the storms
    In the winds of changes.






    In the blooming and blossoming
    There in is the budding of new ideas
    Like ideas that flow by nurturing
    Life is meant to flow…by nature
    Such is the circle of life and living.


    These verses came forth after reading  a very thoughtful share by my dear friend @Ali Anani , who mentioned rightly so that the post might be of interest  to me…. so to him  dedicate this post in gratitude 🙏
