The Fear of A Stranger

His scarlet eyes

Scared me flat

The scars of yesterday

Arrayed in front of me

It wasn’t easy to bear

I couldn’t cast off, either.

The pattern of his scarf

Was ingested in my mind

I tried to erase & end

The evil history at work.

His call drops

Was ferocious for my soul

Never righteous thought invaded

In my mind and soul.

I desired to throw the keys of past

Which was deliberately

Trying to demolish my present.

Never ever turn to lies

It will scar your mind

Speak up

Clear your thoughts

To be free

From scary thoughts.

The 12 Months!!!

January brings Cold & Shiver
Hot Piping Coffee & Ginger Tea
Hails  to our rescue.
February warms us with cool sun-rays
Displaying beautiful flowers in lanes
March springs with colors & soft breeze
The sweaters & pullovers are backpacked 
Ready with colors to play.
April makes entry with heated sun-rays
Wild breezes brings dust everywhere.
May drenches us with sweat
Cold shakes & ice-cubes 
Saves us from dehydration.
Colorful, myriad & scented flowers
Bloom in June
July comes with showers
Petrichor envelops
Rejuvenating our minds
The Sun glares  in August
The golden corns stand in fields
September is favorable for farmers
Harvest is lavish.
October softens  the Sun
Children delight  & have fun
November creeps in 
With low temperature 
Sweat & distress are far away
The breezes of December
Are cold & clear
We wrap ourselves 
To relish the cool weather
The myriad blossoms are 
Treat to the eyes
Hot & Spicy food 
is on plate.
The Twelve months
With different nomenclature
Are far distinct from each other
Holding back monotony faraway 
Bestowing fascination in our lives.

Three Wishes!!!

Wishes are many and the Hope to achieve, keeps Life going
and the hope that lingers makes the journey of life wonderful.
No person in this world are without wishes and the wishes
are endless. One is answered, multiple wishes spins and we chase in our dreams
to win them.
I too had numerous wishes and I achieved many except for some
that I failed to achieve and that’s the beauty of life.
Life fulfills your aims and aspirations but never cent
per cent, few it keeps under his score to make life meaningful. Though, we get
irritated and anxious over our failures and we think foul about life but just
ponder over it, if all our wishes would be answered, then life would be
meaningless and monotonous…hope you agree with me.
The failures and non-fulfillment makes us strong in
chasing our dreams and we strive hard to hit
and when we achieve after yearning, we realize the importance of it.
I may sound philosophical, but we all know that it is bare
truth of life.
Man is emotional so it gets angry or is devastated over
failures in life but in the long term the same person who passed the test of
time and withstood the challenges, is more stable in his life later on.
At this juncture of life, my nest is empty. My kids whom
I reared under my wings soared high
and flew to build their own nest…at times, I feel lonely but the feeling that
they are doing well satiates me and I feel contended.
What are my wishes as of now?
Numerous but today I will unfold three of them on the eve
of Christmas and wish that Jesus blesses my wishes and is fulfilled as
I am not in a hurry to get all of it in momentum and I
strive that gradually it stands fulfilled so that there won’t be rush in the board
room of heaven & Lord will have enough to disburse.
I hope that one day it is fulfilled and this flame of
hope will keep me going.
I wish that when I mellow with age, silver streaks gleams
and wrinkles glow on my face, my health improves and am blessed with best of it
so that my golden years of life moves on smoothly without any support and I can
be independent as I was as in my teens. It might not be easy for Jesus because
I am his favourite child whom he blessed with so many shortcomings but knew
that my smile won’t fade with pain and I never grumbled or complained. But now
I wish to see a change in my life & be sportive, so my close associates are
not concerned about me.
Second wish is that in the coming years our Mother Earth be
free from pollution and we can enjoy the greenery sprawling around and we get
fresh air to breathe which will evict many diseases and stress from people’s
lives. Flora and fauna multiplies and the glorious earth bears happy people all
around and the world be a better place to live in. Once again, I wish to hear
the chirping of birds and watch flowers swaying in soft breeze caressing the
leaves and I enjoy the beauties lying on the green carpet of nature.
Third wish is that my love for my dearies multiply and
their love for me enhances with time so that we can spend quality time together
which we did not get in prime stage of youth because of varied responsibilities
of life. And the people who love you now are your true lovers.
Wishes are endless as it is a natural human instinct but
I keep others for the next time.

Do drop your comment about my views on Three Wishes.

Live in Present!!!

Regretting the past and worrying about the future will further flatten the time in which you are living and celebrate today and try to employ the most of it.Write a post on the celebration of Today…This moment is the only truth. #CelebrateTodayThisMoment

Unconsciously or consciously, we are more hooked to our past that can be relived and coming future which none has seen ever, still we live more in these times than rejoicing in present. The present is more neglected chasing past and future and the consequence is we aren’t satisfied with the phases of life…and who is responsible for these complexities in life…We, the people who believe that our brain is super power and can work accordingly…but the life unfolds in a different way altogether and day by day, the stress increases thereby resulting in anxiety, diseases and depression.

One day, I was just contemplating my activities and found that there are many reasons which do not let us to enjoy the present and we need to work out on it to enjoy the present glory of our life.

When we meet someone close to us, be it friend, family or close associate, we start our complains of not ringing up, lack of communication…blah, blah…we ruin our present meeting because of past and we add one more line so that we don’t miss future tense…the line goes like this..  “Abhi tumhara yeh haal hain, baad main na jaane kya hoga”…common taquiakalam of majority, even I am in.

I worked on it, because in complaining, we soured our present with the person with whom we have expectation…and the result is that we messed the present meeting. The expectation is always with the closed ones…I strictly followed not to complain on meeting or over phone, it’s better to enjoy in the present rather than getting mood off brooding of the past and now I find myself cheerful and happy after each meeting which comes unplanned and rather it is a surprise.

Another thing that I worked on and tried to eliminate from my life, coaxing kids to perform better or racing them for future and if ever they failed, carry over throughout their career. I found that this acted more on demotivating the child rather than motivating and unconsciously we are tough on them and they are more pressurized dwindling between past n present. Let them live in present, don’t make mistake to recall the failures to them off & on or instilling fear of hardships in future. They directly hurt their sentiments and affects their personality in growing years. Just work with them n present. I have seen many bright students getting demotivated or out of track due to over pressure. Let the buds bloom into bright flowers.

If I write, there could be hundreds of examples. Watch out in your life, what is ruining your future & rectify and live in Present…the best phase of life.

One Liner Wednesday!!!



The quintessential that she followed was prickly for other members of the family but they sealed their lips watching her rabid attitude towards it.

By Ila Varma, Dec.2016

Linked to Three Word Wednesday & #1linerWeds




Language is a medium of expressions and interaction with
people and it doesn’t matter which language you speak. Basically, our country’s
ancient languages were Sanskrit & Devanagari script but when people flocked
to other countries or British took over our country in their hands then people
fretted because they couldn’t understand the language of Firangi’s and then
gradually, people started learning this foreign language English and even
during the rule of British, English language was added in the school

In those days, it wasn’t a fad like today to converse in
English, simply, it was taken as a language of communication.

Still the major chunk speak in their own languages, but English
is much in practice and maximum people are studying in English medium schools.

It’s not bad to adopt English in instruction or
communication but its worse to judge one’s education & knowledge in terms
of language and humiliate them for not having the fluency in English or make them
an object of laughter and crack jokes.

Nowadays, along with awareness, even the illiterate people
has updated themselves with the words of English which are in regular use in

English language is easy comparative to Hindi in writing, so
maximum people prefer to write in English. Hindi is tough comparative to
English. This is my view that I hold and I do write in English to get it done

I totally disagree that fluency in English adds sparkle to
one’s personality.😁

Look at the beauty pageants, in Miss World & Miss
Universe, girls from around the globe participate and there are some, who take
help of interpreters to communicate or answer the questions.

Are they less qualified or does their sparkle lessens?

We Indians are more conscious because we have moved away
from our language and in a way adopted foreign language as own language and we
have messed up. Neither we have command on our parent language nor we could do
well in English…I’m talking of the masses. Don’t take my words individually but
on the whole, we are surviving with “Toote Phoote English & Hindi” and
Sanskrit took a back seat.

In academic curriculum, Sanskrit exists, but people study to
pass out and see the foreigners, they are studying our ancient language
Sanskrit and they take pride in it and even converse in Sanskrit.

My view is simple, speak the language in which you feel free
to express your emotions, it can be Hindi, Sanskrit or English.

Knowledge, Confidence & Positive Attitude adds beauty
and worth to a personality.

The expression of Love & Smiles has no language to
communicate, still it is contagious 💓
