December

I am a December born Queen… which means it is a very special month for me. Lots of unconditional love from my mother but a pinch of extra topping of cherry on cake always delights me more!
Viola!! my heart goes on…pouring tons of hugs & kisses. It is a month we got married … 18 years of togetherness … so celebrations for my family and me!
This is the month, I came into the world in my mother’s lap.
A month when I left home from her lap too, with teary eyes and accepted another world (as each girl does) indeed, with new hopes and joys.
The words I, Me and You ceased to matter individually, when life became about us.
So, looking forward for ever more happiness, laughter and a healthy life ahead.

Happy Yesterday!!

Tomorrow is the day
When I will think today as
A happy yesterday.
I will look back
at it with smiles.
Once it is no longer
responsible for my styles.
I will think today was good
wishing that I was still standing where I stood.
Today will be in the past
and its problems will not seem so vast.

Nostalgia will make me like now
when I am no longer in it, I do vow.
Or perhaps it will just be an appreciation
of my life’s station.

It will seem like it was great
once this time is late
For then, new problems will have overtaken me
and these are the ones I will then see
As the part of trouble
something that burst the bubble
All today’s rain
will have filtered down the drain
or how I will beam
it does seem
when I look upon today
as a happy yesterday.

Are There Angels

It said there are angels
in heavens above.
and they shine with the light
of an inner love.
of these things I had not a clue
But that was before I found you
For in you I have found
a love that is so right
it shines all around
with the brightest of light.
It comes from somewhere so deep within
that it has no beginnings and knows no end.
Your love is a light
that brightens each day
of all the people
you see on your way.

Wherever you are or whatever you do
all see the love that you have inside you
That God sent you here
to a place where you had be
sharing such love
with someone like me
is proof for me
that angels exist and are filled with a love
that no man could resist
I thank God each day for finding the time
For looking down on me and making you mine
So yes! There are angels
in heavens above

I know because God
sent me one to love

Hacking Into Happiness

With the morning sun, Nupur jogged briskly, running around in rounds. It was the third round. “Come on Nups! Let us sit here for our yoga session!” Adi said removing all the thoughts that were dwelling in his mind. They sat near the fountain where the water fell. The ivory white water splashed down with swooshing sound, splashing down the marble structure. Fresh, windy, cool and crispy air started whistling around. Birds were tweeting their morning melodies. The trees were swaying with the wind, dancing to welcome the morning. Their green leaves were whispering in chatter about the day’s plan. And the green grass looked as if someone had spread a green bedsheet. The green bumble bees swarmed up in the air searching for sweet honey. The colourful cute butterflies, filtering around aromatic flowers. “Morning seems so self calming, Sweetheart”, said Nupur.
“Yes honey! Look at the golden sun! It is looking as if a baby has started painting the dark pristine blue sky into a faint orange hue with the sunrise. Everything is so beautiful to start the day …!”

“Wow! I can see the happiness in your eyes. You know Nups, we have four hormones in our body which are responsible for our happiness.
Happiness does not depend on material or money. Sometimes body releases endorphins. As we exercise, Nups, the body releases the endorphins to cope up with the pain and fear of exercising. It makes us happy and we enjoy doing exercise. See, both of us enjoying our session here. I think you are understanding these issues. 30 minutes of exercise daily is needed so that to get our daily dise of endorphins. Daily we do lots of work big or small and people. We feel happy. Didn’t you feel happy when Mrs Roa gave you an assignment? An opportunity to work and we all acknowledged. You felt good as Dopamineis released. Mostly our homemakers are sad as their household work is not noticed many a times. Nups, you can imagine why ladies are so happy with shopping. Dopamine hormone makes us feel happy.”

“Being a doc’s wifey is so good in every shop we get good shot of advices.
Tell me about the other hormones too…”

“Nups, when we do some good work for the society or an act of kindness, it releases Serotonin. Providing useful information, writing blogs, answering people’s questions on facebook, generates Serotonin. So Nups, darling when you write articles or blog which is useful to the society, Serotonin is released.”

“Thats nice dear! And I really want to hug you for this piece of information!”

“And then, Oxytocin is released when we come close to each other. We kiss, or hug, shake hands, put arms around oir shoulders, various amounts of oxytocin is released.Now, you can understand why we need to hug a child who is in a bad mood.”

“Oh wow! My love! You make my life simple. Everytime I sit with you, exercise daily to get Endorphine. We have to finish up our goals and get Dopamine. Being nice to others to get Serotonin. Finally love our kids, families and friends to get Oxytocin. So we will be happy and when we are happy we deal with challenges efficiently and we make a happier world around us.”

“Yes sweetheart! Lets start our day to make our world happier.”

A bunch of kids were passing by. They were running with frisbee in their hand. Some of them stopped beside Adi and Nupur quizzically asked, “Hello Aunty! Hello Uncle! How are you today?” In reply, Adi waved back at them. Adi and Nupur watched the unadulterated laughter and joy of these children as they played with the frisbee. The kids had tremendous infectious energy and were moving as if they were playing to some unheard rhythm. Adi and Nupur wanted to join in the rhythm of the energy and be kids once more!

Adi kissed Nupur’s forehead and they both started their yoga session.

Wishes: The Unending Chain

 

Every one has a wish or a dream. Wishes not only expand the thinking power but also creativity of an individual. And from childhood human wish , wish and wish more and more, unlimited wishes!
Every people have different wishes in life. For eg: For a doctor his ultimate wish is to cure all the patients in his hospital or clinic, a teacher wishes to give utmost knowledge  to the child for a magician his wishes is to make all his tricks successful that night to make a grand show.A actor wishes to entertain people and be a charmer of the show.

I  too have lots of wishes. We dream different with ages. When I was a small child I too wished of becoming a Barbie and roam into the fantastic world of Barbie,To play with all pink sets of Barbie .To meet Hansel and Gretel a stay with them in a house constructed of cakes , candies many more imaginable eateries. I wanted to go deep under the ocean with Ariel the mermaid and wanted to have sleek long hair like Rapunzel.  I wanted to be beautiful snowhite and form friendship with seven dwarfs.I wanted to be a sleeping beauty and to wait for my adorable prince who will  awaken  me by his magical kiss.My list to do was endless and dreams were unlimited.

But as I grew up my wishes got a little change in them and slowly I forgot about the ocean and the blissful kiss At the age of 12 my wish was to have a powerful wand in my hand and finish Voldemort .To become fearless warrior and to be a hero of all’s eye.

My wish  was to meet powderpuff girls and share their superpowers. I dreamt to going to Hogwarts to see all magical delights.
Not to forgot the witches apple in snow white and the pea under the princess mattress vasilisa the beautiful’s cabbage soup or Rapunzel’s salad and Pinocchio’s tripe.The lavish food land
 In midst of my dreams and wishes I scribbled few lines when I was in my teens . Here I want to share with you one of my soul longing penned wishes…

Shimmering and shining in the night sky.
I wish I was the coconut palm,
With its head held up high.
I wish I was the pretty lark,
singing out her sweet melodious song.
I wish its voice were pretty enough,
to prove all dark and dreary things wrong.
I wish I was the Ganges or the Yamuna,
whose drops are as blissful as heavenly dew.
I wish I was the Mount Himalaya,
bravely shouldering the burden of Bharat Ma,
I wish I was the enchanting Dahlia,
that blooms in the garden and in one’s heart.
I wish I was the wide blue horizon itself,
with its wide all-encompassing bosom.

I wish it was wide enough,
to cover up man’s existing spiritual chasm.
I wish I was all this and more,
anything except the shadowy cloak,
to this mist, on my heart that I wore
I pine, I languish and I pray,
not this physical self to please,
But I pray, O Father! For spirit’s enlightenment,
and for the pure breath of peace.

तेरे आगाँन कि बाती!

निकले तुम बाज़ार की ओर
जगमग दिवाली का बाजार
झालरों और पटाखों का अंबार
रोशन गालियां जगमग, लड़ियों से
है शहर रंगीन, सितारों से
तुम बटुए टटोलते अरमान पूरे करते
चकाचौंध भरे इस बाज़ार को खरीदने
सामान भर लिए कहीं भूल तो नहीं गए मुझे?
अरे! मैं हूँ! तुम्हारे सुनहरे सपने!
बचपन की यादें, चौखट पे टिमटिमते दिए!
अरमानों की बाती, तुम्हारी बगिया में उजाला है लाती
माँ से ज़िद करके तुम दो बाती और जलाते
आंगन में फुलझड़ियां लगाते
बिखरें हैं बाजार में उम्मीद लिये – कोई मुझे भी लेकर जाए
बीते सपनों की यादें जिये
अपने चौखट आंगन में
टिम टिम करते सजाय दिये!
