Plea of the Girl Child

I have big dreams in my heart,
I just want a push to start.
I will do everything i can,
Just let me go ahead with my plan.
Don’t pin me down, set me free,
Give me freedom, let me be me.

Give me your guidance and support,
I will be as strong as a huge fort.
Nurture me with love and care,
Even i can be your rightful heir.
Don’t pin me down, set me free,
Give me freedom, let me be me.

I am brave, I am strong,
I can tackle when things go wrong.
I can judge between wrong and right,
So trust me and have faith in my might.
Don’t pin me down, set me free,
Give me freedom, let me be me.

I will be there whenever you need,
With all my love and respect indeed.
Just one chance is all i ask,
To show my competence in my task.
Don’t pin me down, set me free,
Give me freedom, let me be me.

Don’t force me in a cage when i want to fly,
Don’t cut my wings when i want to soar high.
Don’t kill me as i want to live my dreams,
What will be achieved by silencing my screams?
Don’t pin me down, set me free,
Give me freedom, let me be me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

Here are some of my favorites of The Golden Hour !

A beautiful pattern :)
A beautiful pattern 🙂
A dash of orange !
A dash of orange !
A sunset, a turn, a river & a moment to be captured !
A sunset, a turn, a river & a moment to be captured !
Rising Moon, Setting Sun
Rising Moon, Setting Sun

Wave a goodbye to the setting sun,
To come back again with day of fun,
As it descends & its brightness fades,
The moon and stars shimmer & glaze.

Sun rises again with a bright new day,
Guides & motivates to follow our way,
At noon its too bright due to its power,
So enjoy the grandeur of the golden hour !

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic | My Cycle and Me

Good Old Days

This week’s “Weekly Photo Challenge” encouraged me to go back in time and see a flashback of my life till now. It feels just yesterday when i used to go to school, enjoy vacations and play with my friends. Time actually flies very very fast. It feels so good to have a look at the old photographs. Its only sweet memories which we are left with, to ponder, recollect and enjoy the old times.

I recalled my first school. I recollected how we friends used to go walking holding the hands of Aaya. I still remember the green abacus kept in a corner of my school which had intrigued me a lot. Reciting poems in class, doing homework, participating in games and fancy dress competitions (I had got first prize for being Indira Gandhi :)). I can see a video recording of all these events as if it is being played in front of my eyes !

Then we got shifted to the colony, so that i could have more friends. My life changed ! I made so many new friends. Every evening we used to play. I remember, we even played during exams and yet performed well. Hide and seek, ice and water, hopscotch, racing, cycling, climbing trees, dark room etc were the games we played apart from badminton, carom, basketball, chess and table tennis. You name it and we played it 🙂 Then there were fun filled birthday parties, the return gifts, the tasty dishes, sweets and chocolates, it was so much fun. We also used to fight with each other for various reasons. Now the reasons may look silly but at that time it mattered a lot to us.  However all fights and misunderstandings were forgotten and each day was a fresh new day. We never held any grudges for one another.

“When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.”
―Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

The picture above shows me with my companion “my maroon Hero bicycle” when i was 7 years old. I was so proud of my bicycle. It was my surprise birthday gift ! It was a big transition for me from a tricycle to a bicycle. I still remember how my Dad used to teach me cycling every evening. I used to wait for him to come back from office and teach me how to cycle. The roads lined by lush green trees, the fresh air, the chirping birds, it was all fantastic ! In the beginning the bicycle was so huge for me that i could not even sit on the seat or take a complete round of the pedals. But i myself don’t remember when i started racing with my friends. Off course there were a lot of scrapped knees followed by tetanus injections, but i guess it made me stronger and braver 🙂 Later on we used to do cycling every evening on the broad roads, chatting together. We would get so engrossed, that we just forgot about the distance we had covered. Later at night when our legs pained, did we realize that perhaps we had cycled lot more than our capacity 🙂

I think childhood is the best time to imbibe a lot of skills in children. I hindsight i realize we learnt leadership, team management, time management, handling difficult people, facing challenges and so many other skills without even intentionally learning them. These skills can only be learnt practically. No book or teacher can teach you these skills in a classroom. Thus childhood is the best time to inculcate various qualities which are useful later in life. There cannot be a better teacher than our own experience.

I will conclude with a small poem written by me on childhood –

Childhood is the best time to learn and grow
To inculcate and nurture the seed you sow
Play games and make so many new friends
Not to give a damn about the latest trends
Enjoy life and be happy each and every new day
Not to be apprehensive of the mysteries future lays
To fight with friends and then forgive & forget
Not to worry about the deadlines that are set
If life seems to be so good from a child’s view
Then lets bring back the child, whom we bid adieu !

When, What to do ?

In times of despair,
Don’t lose hope.

In times of success,
Don’t go over the board.

In times of disaster,
Lend a helping hand.

In times of competition,
Compete with yourself.

In times of danger,
Fight with valor.

In times of silence,
Discover peace within yourself.

In times of jealousy,
Count your blessings.

In times of love,
Fill yourself with joy.

In times of hatred,
Keep away from negativity.

In times of ecstasy,
Discover extreme happiness.

In times of doubt,
Have faith.

In times of nothingness,
Discover the void.

In all times,
Be yourself !

I feel I am Stupid

I feel i am stupid when i seek lasting pleasure from this world
When i know it can only give momentary happiness.

I feel i am stupid when i run behind money
When i know it cannot buy all the love and joy.

I feel i am stupid when i expect something from someone
When i know they won’t be able to give it.

I feel i am stupid when i try to attain all the materialistic pleasures
When i know my desires can never be completely satisfied.

I feel i am stupid when i try to know what is happening in others life
When i am not even sure what exactly is happening to me.

I feel i am stupid when i want to know so many people
When i don’t even exactly know who am i.

I feel i am stupid when i try to change the world
When i know first i must change myself.

I feel i am stupid when i try to find THE DIVINE all around
When i know divinity is present within me !

Happy Engineers’ Day

We have the capability to bring a change,
We have the potential to make this world a better place,
We are the future of tomorrow !
We are the engineers
We rock the world !

Nothing is impossible for us,
We can do things nobody has ever dreamt,
We are the foundation of the world,
We are the engineers
We rock the world !

We are brave enough to accept any challenge,
We can work day and night to meet the deadlines,
We are true of our words,
We are the engineers
We rock the world !

Think twice before challenging us,
Because we are used to doing daunting things,
So most probably we will win 😎
We are the engineers
We rock the world !

We can build bridges between enemies,
Our skyscrapers can reach the stars,
However our thoughts can take us to a different world,
We are the engineers
We rock the world !

We rise with double strength if we fail,
We are brave enough to accept our mistakes,
We are smart enough not to repeat the same ones again 😉
We are the engineers
We rock the world !

We have revolutionary ideas in our minds,
We have a sense of pride in our hearts,
We have peace and serenity in our souls,
We are the engineers
We rock the world !

HAPPY ENGINEERS’ DAY TO ALL !!!

New Life —> New Beginning

An end and a fresh start.
Bulls eye struck by my dart.
Hope everything goes on well
In these thoughts i constantly dwell.

A new beginning leads to change.
It seems a bit frightening and strange.
Hope to get adapted pretty soon.
Wish everything turns out to be a boon.

A new city, a different culture
All will lead to a bright future.
New connections, new friends.
People on whom i can depend.

I want to learn, i want to grow
In comp science i wanna be a pro
Dream of reaching the unreached height
Ready to do my best with all my might

I promise to always focus on my aim.
Wanna earn fame, money and name.
I promise to be strong & to never give up
Always to view life like a half filled cup

Things have always been good for me
Hope that it always continues to be
Whatever i deserve i want to get
As well as things i haven’t dream’t yet !
