Only Fun & No Care

The Drops of Water

Trickling Down from Heaven

Floods Me with Marvelous Memories
Of the Days of Kinder Care.

Sailing Paper Boats in the Gushing
Waters of Rain
Clapping & jumping on our
Giving a tickling all over.

Hovering Over the Water Drains
With a Fishing Pipe
Filled with Feeling of Woo & Triumph
Even if a Single Tiny Fish Caught
Forgetting the Hours
We stood Perspiring In the Sun

Waded in Knee Deep Water
Forgetting the Dirt It Carried Along
Such Was the Days of Childhood
Only Fun & No Care.

जालिम संसार 
ना सुखी को सुख से रहने दिया
और ना ही दु:खी का सहारा बना ।।

बारिश की कुछ बूंदे
मिटा गई तपिश धरती की
मिट्टी की भीनी खुश्बू से
सराबोर हुआ धरती का रग-रग ।।

We have been hearing this adage, “All That Glitters Is Not Gold” since
time immemorial & it’s very true in its own context. We get attracted by
one’s appearance but what appears to be beautiful may not be beautiful always so we need an eye to introspect & judge its intrinsic value but it’s the
human psychology that the looks appeal us more than the quality be it an
article or object or people & we run after the appearance overlooking its
intrinsic value. The impact of appeal is more and many times we adjudge a
person or a thing with its external appearance.
As I navigate down the memory lanes during school days, an incident props up in front of my eyes which is very convincing for this adage. When I was in school, I had a friend Vinita. She was very close to me. Whenever I visited
her house, the way the house was managed attracted me a lot. The things were in order, clean and well maintained. I used to envy. We had a joint family with near about 15-20 members, indeed a very big family, three generations staying under the same roof. Due to a generation gap, the living style was unique of each member of our family. All contributed in household work, so there was less botheration on the head of the family, unlike today’s nuclear families where the burden of each and everything hangs on the head of the family. But I couldn’t dream of a well-maintained house, cleanliness was in abundance but the things weren’t arranged in order. Many times, I wished that maybe someday my house is too kept in order as Vinita’s but it seemed a far-fetched dream.
Once I had an opportunity to stay at Vinita’s house due to some ill happenings in my family and all went to our native place, I had to stay back due to final exams. I was very happy to stay at her place, my dream home. But in a day or two, I found it very difficult to adjust to her place. There were fixed set of rules
and all members had to follow & at my place, no rules were defined. So I
found it too bothering. Before starting for the school, it was mandatory for
all to arrange their beds in order. On return, all had to carry their shoes in
hand and place it on the shoe rack. Till the cleaning of the house, none were
allowed to enter the house. There were too many bindings, I felt
At that time, I realized that I never ever regarded my mother, aunt or granny for the pain that they took to run the house with so many people all having
different mindsets. I was attracted to the house of Vinita but after
staying there I realized that the freedom to live casual was missing and all
were on toes to keep the house in order or to avoid confrontations with her Mom unlike at my house where we breathed freely & lived a carefree life.
The heart was filled with love and regard for the women folks of my family who gave their best in running the house and never ever got irritated over the music that we children created, free to eat anywhere inside the house, throw clothes and shoes in different corners of the house etc. But we were never charged rather in the morning, we got our things proper place.
I realized my mistake, it was the impact of external appearance which appealed me the most & I find this adage very apt, “ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD”

It’s my own feeling so guys don’t get offended, sorry if you feel offended.

She Stood Still

She Stood Still
Against All the Turbulence Of Life
Times Tempted Her To Run Away
Far Away From The Injustice & Violence
Of Health, Wealth, Peers & Companion.
She Stood Still
Life will Stop It’s Atrocities
Surround Her With Reasons To Smile.

She Knocked Down 
The Persistent Obstacles That Confronted Her
Craving For A Beautiful Morning
When Things Would Be Mended
Life Would Be A Blend Of Joy & Love!!!

You Are Mine !!

He came into my life
Like a soothing breeze
Illuminating my soul
Loved his innocence and care
Accepted him as mine !!!

Is Reservation Fair ?

The word “Reservation” itself demarcates our social strata, so it can never ever be fair. It has instilled feeling in the masses based on casteism. When I was in my kindergarten days, I used to hear people say that when we will grow up, the caste system would be abolished from the society but what I find today is just the opposite what people thought in the past. This caste feeling has become more rigid than the past times & people have developed ill feelings.

The question is : Why Reservation System Was Introduced?

It was just to uplift the downtrodden or weaker sections of the people & to create equality among the masses. But the consequence is far away. The people of weaker sections have benefited but instead of equality there is a gap been created within the different sects of people. It was introduced to abridge the gap but it has worked reverse.

I agree that there was a time when the backward sections of people were exploited by the upper sections due to illiteracy but the people that are facing the consequences are not at fault. They are just facing the consequences of the deeds of their ancestors.

The concept of reservation was to bridge the gap & not to create a gap. It should be fairly on the economic status of people of society and not on the basis of religion or caste. In spite of providing ample reservation, are the really weak sect of society benefiting, It’s a big “No”

Who are the real beneficiaries ?

The real beneficiaries are those who are economically sound & their kith’s n kin are growing and the one who was weak and ignored are still fighting for their rights.

Reservation should be implemented in a different way, it should be purely on socio-economic level instead of caste level. It will literally benefit the people who are the neglected mass of society and it will sure bridge the gap and it will reap better future for all. It needs to be implemented at grass root level, the economic backward class should be given free education, books, clothes and meals and compulsory education till Plus two level. This way the impact of reservation will be great and far reaching consequences.

Abolition of reservation of seats in Higher Education and Jobs:

When privilege would be provided to the economic weak underprivileged class then there won’t be any need to reserve the seats in Higher Education & Jobs and the ill feeling that has cropped up in society on the basis of General Category, OBC, SC/ST, Minority will stand nowhere in society and there would be amicable understanding among the masses.

Our articles on Reservations needs to be amended in the interests of society. It is more used as a tool by the Politicians to create vote bank and to create a conflict in society.

If we really wish to see smiles on the faces of our students and erase the frowns, time has come for the amendment of the existing policy.
