It’s an Arduous Walk

Infant cries, wordless fight; falls and highs, you got to fly,

You ought to be ahead, was the very first talk.

From crawling to running, it’s an arduous walk.

Numbers, dance,  or romance; sports, science or speech, 

Its a race you can’t just mock,

 From home to school, it’s an arduous walk.

Win some, loose some, you have seen enough,

What you like, doesn’t matter much, societal goals are deadlock,  

From young to wise, it’s an arduous walk.

Morning calls, Late night jobs, charts are antidote, you have hundred lines to decode

Huss and buss, you can not balk

From learning to earning, it’s an arduous walk.

Meet and greet, think you have time to sleep,

But still you grind, full soul and mind, you never thought when you tied the knot,

From child to parent, it’s an arduous walk.

Long was the battle, now its time to settle,

But see around you, so much is same,

Rat race is on, your young self is going on,

Deja vu, but its not you, all you hear is squawk,

From life to grave, it’s an arduous walk.

My Life Story – short and crisp glory

via Daily Prompt: Crisp

Crisp

Life is easy, Life is tough;

Ups and downs, can be rough;

In this difficult path, take a stroll;

Enjoy each day, peace to soul;

My life may be not a long and epic story;

What I want is short and crisp glory.

Nail Polish Priority

via Daily Prompt: Polish Polish
landscape-1436556470-nail-polish-spills-de.jpg

‘I want the Nail Polish, Mum’, says Oshira. I want to put on the brightest color, she continued. ‘No, ‘No you cannot have that Nail Polish. You know your father would not like it’. Oshira got furious, she really wanted it and so she swore to herself that she  will never ever wear a Nail Polish in her life.

Oshira was born in a middle class Indian family. Her father always taught her to be focused to achieve what she wanted. Oshira’s father was very protective of her. She grew up understanding the place of discipline and sacrifice in life. She was a bright child as her father wanted her to be.

But, the teen stage of life is not easy. Not everybody around Oshira was like her. You get life only once, so enjoy, was usually the motto of many of her friends. When her friends used to get ready with the finest clothes and attend parties, Oshira would be busy preparing for the next hurdle / exam. It was not that she was not allowed to go out, but she can not do as freely as others used to do. Because of it, slowly Oshira starts forgetting her fathers word and start feeling restricted. She wanted to break free. But she loved her father  too much to hurt him, also she was aware that she had also seen the same dreams which her father had seen for her.

Years passed by, Oshira grew up. She graduated and got admission to the top college. She couldn’t be much happier. She went to her father and to her surprise, her father already had a gift for her on her victory. She takes the gift box, and opens up eagerly. And then she couldn’t stop her tears. It was the same Nail Polish, she cried once for. At that moment, She understood, everything in life should be done at the right time. it’s all about priorities. If we set our priorities right, there is nothing we can not achieve.

Success Mantra

via Daily Prompt: Natty

Personality is sum total of you inner qualities and external appearance. I do not agree with people who say only your skill sets matter. I’m biased towards people who are Good at heart, Good at job plus Natty in appearance. Fo example – Take a Comedian. Comedian’s bread and butter is if he can keep you engaged with his act and keep you laughing. Assume a comedian very witty, humorous, with awesome content in his act come up on stage. How can he can engage us if he is shabby. Does not matter if he is tall dark or handsome but if he is Natty you are likely to hear him for more time. So a proper balance of how you carry yourself with you inherent soft / technical skill is the mantra of Success.

My Grandfather’s Uniform

When you hear the word Uniform what does it remind you-

Defense Forces, Doctors, Nurse, Policemen, Postmen, Pilots, Air Host, School, Interview,Favorite Cricket team, Favorite Superhero and what not !!!

Uniform reminds me of my Grandfather. He is a retired Police officer. He is the most Honest, Truthful and Disciplined person I have ever seen in my life. I still remember the way he used to keep his uniform. There used to be not even one crushed line in his dress. Clean and tidy as a new dress always. Not a single drop of stain you could ever spot on his clothes. I swear, if any Detergent company ever sees his uniform, or any of his clothes for that matter, they will cast him in their advertisement. He could spend hours to wash his clothes to keep them spotless. He always associates Uniform with discipline.

To come near, sometimes you need to go far, a little…

I was happy. I just got married. A pompous wedding, international destination honeymoon, a brand new villa in town and a self chosen husband, Yes, i.e. Love Marriage. We were the happiest couple. But guess what!!! then Life happened. Living with another person was not really my forte. Before the wedding, both of us used to live alone. In my husband’s words, we were the Lions of our Den. After wedding, the  two Lions started sharing one den. But as rightly said, Two swords can not stay in a sheath. It was not we loved each other any less but somehow it was not easy for us.

We din’t know what to do. It was then he got a job offer, he had to go far for short period of time and I had a self owned business idea, which I started working on. We lived apart for sometime. I thought the last thing we should do in such time was to live apart. There was a risk of permanent damage.

But slowly, something changed. Even though we were physically distant, but the distance between us seemed less. Togetherness planted a seed of relationship between us, but the distance helped us grow in that relationship. When we lived apart, we understood how to live with each other. Togetherness brought us close to make a bond, Distance added the strength in our bond. Love taught us we can not live apart, and the distance taught us how to live together. We crossed the long distance road between us by walking , until we met. If it was not for this distance, we could not have seen the road clearly. I understand now; to come near, sometimes you need to go far, a little.
