वो फिर नहीं आते ....

फूल खिलते हैं, लोग मिलते हैं
फूल खिलते हैं, लोग मिलते हैं मगर

पतझड़ मे जो फूल मुरझा जाते हैं
वो बहारों के आने से खिलते नहीं

कुछ लोग एक रोज़ जो बिचड़ जाते हैं
वो हजारों के आने से मिलते नहीं

उम्रभर चाहे कोई पुकारा करे उनका नाम
वो फिर नहीं आते , वो फिर नहीं आते

ज़िन्दगी के सफ़र मे, गुज़र जाते हैं जो मक़ाम
वो फिर नहीं आते, वो फिर नहीं आते


Ego lives by getting and forgetting!

Love lives by giving and forgiving!!

Self is contraction!

Love is expansion!!

Self is lovelessness!

Love is selflessness!!

-Sathya Sai Baba

Reminder To The God......

It’s not that I tweet you everything I do!
It’s not that you are aware of every update …
On My Face Book!!

Neither I cal you every half an hour…
Nor I send messages of my minutes!!

But I always use to feel that
We are connected!!

Rather I use to believe that
24x7, 365 days you are with me!
People may come and go
You are always there for me!!

I never bothered…
What others are thinking of me!
I never cared…
What value they assign me!!

I always felt that...
It’s your opinion which matters!
I may forgo anything big
But never to lose your faith in me!!

But off late it appears …
That you have deleted me..
From the list of your Beloved!

You have departed from me..
From the nest we have established!!

You no more care for me...
Neither you give any hint nor help!

You just watch…
and enjoy my struggle!!

It appears that….
We are no more Friends!

May be you want to prove me wrong …
Without you!
May be you want to convey the message…
Live alone!

But you might have forgotten
Our c…

Satya Sai Baba Passes Away....So, What Next?

So, finally they declared……Satya Sai Baba passes away.
Spiritual leader Satya Sai Baba who has thousands of followers in India and abroad died Sunday of cardiac and respiratory failure.

I am not his devotee but, whatever work Baba has done for the public is exemplary.
There is no argument in the fact that Sai Baba did a lot of good for people around him.

But when I was going through all kind of ambiguity surrounding his successor, I was wondering why a person like him also not thought about future course ….in spite of prolonged illness.

Why he has not made clear... who can take the responsibility of Satya Sai Central Trust which manages several welfare activities across the country.

Why there is so much uncertainty? Why there is a succession war breaking out among members.
Why the Trust built and developed over the decades has suddenly in doldrums.

Why a man of so much calibre who can attract and mobilise millions around the world could not visualise the future both of him a…


Some time back I read a story ….

In a seminar, an assumingly intelligent fellow compares a 500 Rupee note with a person’s value.

First he displays a fresh note, then he crumples it with his hands and then he grinds it into the floor with his shoe.

Each time he will ask the audience "Who would like to have this 500 Rupee note?". At each stage there will be people who want to grab the note, though the number decreases.

So, finally he concludes …..

“No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth Rupee 500/-. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value”.

It looks so strange when I first read the story…

First of all how one can compare a lifeless physical entity like a 500 Rupee note with a pe…

No one is Perfect…

It’s of normal practice that we easily compromise with outside people rather than with our near and dear ones.

We seldom take their habits/ attitude/ character so seriously. Even if we come across with some problem, we forget the differences so quickly and mingle with them as if nothing has happened.

The problem arises only when we have to deal with dear/ near ones, because we always want to see them flaw less.

We assume that they can never do anything wrong. We make a perfect opinion that they are so perfect and even a slight shift in their behavior makes us go berserk and we all throw some tantrums
“Hey I didn’t expect this from you” .

Though we are quite intelligent in dealing with so many critical problems…when it comes to accessing the near/ dear ones we easily become fools.

The root cause of this kind of thinking is assumption.
First we assume and then based on that we deduce their character,
Irrespective of what they are or what they are capable of.

No one in this univers…

What an enlightenment!!!!!

Yesterday on my way back to home from Secunderabad, pillion riding my daughter on Two wheeler,
I just happen to see a family taking photographs with their newly acquired car in front of Ford Showroom.

When I mentioned the scenario to my daughter…my daughter told “Yah mom it’s Ford Car that too they bought it on an exceptional and special day like Sreerama Navami”.

My immediate reaction was “what so special about Sreerama Navami?

See Rama’s fate….he got married on this day and faced so many problems.
First he lost his throne, then he has to spend a period of exile in the forest, there also he couldn’t stay peacefully as Ravana abducted Seetha.

He has to bear the separation, and then cross the Sea to reach Lanka, followed by the Great War to win over Ravana.

His sufferings have not ended here, even after Seetha proving her integrity by Agnipravesham; Rama has been forced to send Seetha on exile again, to prove his truthfulness and please people of Ayodhya. Then he lived all alone …

Hell's Gate!!!

This place in Uzbekistan is called by locals “The Door to Hell”. It is situated near the small town of Darvaz. The story of this place lasts already for 35 years. Once the geologists were drilling for gas. Then suddenly during the drilling they have found an underground cavern, it was so big that all the drilling site with all the equipment and camps got deep deep under the ground. None dared to go down there because the cavern was filled with gas. So they ignited it that no poisonous gas could come out of the hole, and since then, it’s burning, already for 35 years without any pause. Nobody knows how many tons of excellent gas has been burned for all those years but it just seems to be infinite there.

The end will be definitely.... Something different!!!

What lesson one has to learn from yesterdays
World Cup Final Match between India and Srilanka.

In life…… sometimes we have to be mere spectators.

The way it took turns…..the ups and downs….

They were 31/1 in first 10 over power play….
Raising the hopes of over a billion Indians!

Then the man called Jayawardene came,
Hitting a ton, he Kept the hopes of Srilankans alive!!

And then ….we were 31/2….that includes Tendulkar!
Supposed to be most promising batsmen of the day…
Draining all the energy of enthusiastic Indian crowds,
Sitting there at Wankhade Stadium and
Millions world over, watching the live match
Thought "It's Gone"..

At this crucial moment...came our hero of the day Gautam Gambhir!
Who has toil hard, literally soiled himself
Scoring an inspiring 97.
That too…under such a great pressure.

In a true sense, yesterdays Match was sensational!!
Raising and dropping adrenalin levels of millions!!

And literally all we Indians have to be mere spectators!!

We all know …we…
