The virtue of sacrifices

image
Greatest symbol of Sacrifice

God’s greatest gift to mankind
Is our body , soul and mind
Without these gifts even
Our existence will be blind.

So, why not enjoy these gifts
Why not do everything
That make our spirits lifts
Why do we need to care about
Any on this world’s shits.

This feels a great virtue to live by,
Enjoying life full and hard,
Drink, play, dance , don’t be shy,
Why sacrifice anything at all,
Sacrifice are great, feels like a lie.

You may feel like this,
Sacrifices has no bliss,
If you feel so, I am sorry
You are giving
Something great, a miss

True, sacrifices take away
Something you like
A close friend , memorables
Or a desired bike

But, there is a happiness,
Free from many distress,
Leaving something for others
May feel like a bless.

A mother wants a new handbag
So, with her friends, she can brag
But, instead she decided to take,
A cake for her children, she can bake.
Sacrificing her bragging for a cake,
What you feel
Is she more happy, or regret make her shake.

The satisfaction she will feel then,
Cannot be written with a pen.
A little regret for this feeling
Is what we call good dealing.

Everyone wants to enjoy their life
Think what happens,
If everyone do what they like,
Students will never study,
And play all day with their buddy.
Air station personal will sleep at night
Forgetting about sky full of flights.
Your father go to bar, to feel like a guy,
Instead of singing you a lullaby.
Soldiers will leave border to their fate,
As they are missing their mate.

Can you imagine such a world,
It will be like a flying bird,
Heading senselessly
Till it is blasted to shreds.

Sacrifices are the engines of this world,
That keeps it functioning and move it forward
Small and big ,sacrifices made by everyone of us,
Never get unawarded, for the world is are a plus,
In return you get, satisfaction, happiness and god’s own trust

The gift of Bhai Dhuj

     Yesterday, we celebrated Bhai Dhuj, a festival today marks the end of festival season.
     On this day, millions of sisters in India, give respect to their brothers by putting a tilak’* on their head. And brothers in turn pledge to protect their sisters from any harm.
     With increasing incidents of crime against women in the cities, I plan to do something new

Wrote a poem

The poem
On the eve of this Bhai Dhuj
I plan to step in a new shoe
On this day
Brothers pledge to protect their sisters
From any danger , rapist or molesters
But what happens if we are not near them
Then, who is to be blame
To truly protect our sisters
We must make them self sufficient
Against any rapist or molesters
So this gift for these lovely ladies
To give them lots of blisters.

And then, gifted her a pepper spray to protect herself.

Rather then gifting just money, isn’t something that really protects your sisters is better. Think about it!

A song to spread awareness about dangers in interments

इस गीत को “ऐ मेरे वतन के लोगो”

ऐ ग्रीनपावर के सदस्यो, गोलगपों में भर लो पानी,
जो निवेश किया है उसकी जरा पता करो कहानी।

जब मालुम हुआ परोजैक्ट, बन गये सदस्य झटपट,
35 लाख बता के इक घरौंदे की सुनवा दी आहट।
लोन जुटाने को फिर शुरू हो गई थी खींचातानी,
जो निवेश किया है उसकी जरा पता करो कहानी।

स्टरकचर खड़ा होते ही किमत 30 फिसदी बढ़ाई,
डिफालटर होने की भैया फिर ही तो नौबत आई।
देरी से भुगतान पर ब्याज ने याद दिलाई है नानी,
जो निवेश किया है उसकी जरा पता करो कहानी।

बिलडर ने जो देरी की है काम पूरा करने में भारी,
सब करते क्यों नहीं हक खातिर लड़ने की तैयारी।
देरी के मुआवजे के लिये आवाज है सदस्यो उठानी,
जो निवेश किया है उसकी जरा पता करो कहानी।

कोर सदस्य क्यों चुप बैठ कर देख रहे हैं तमाशा,
झुठी सच्ची कुछ तो  इस गरूप को दे दो दिलासा।
समस्या हल करने की खातिर बात कर लो सयानी,
जो निवेश किया है उसकी जरा पता करो कहानी।

The ironical Sudama

    Sudama was a very close friend of Lord Krishna. They spend most of their childhood together. But when Lord Krishna became Dwarika Naresh (king of Dwarka) , poor Sudama went to Lord Krishna’s palace to beg for help to save his family from poverty.
    The story is as such that when he reached the palace gates, he was stopped and harassed by the palace guards. Even when queen Rukmani saw him (she doesn’t know he was Krishna’s friend), she pushes him out.
     Sudama was harassed until Krishna was told about his arrival. After that story takes completely opposite your.

     Thousands of year later, when this story was being enacted at Mata ki Choki(religious function devoted to Goddess Durga), act takes an ironical turn.

Poor Sudama with lots of money

    When Sudama entered , instead of being harassed by palace guards he was welcomed cash. garlands and notes of 10 rupees by all the devotees around.
    It is tradition, where you welcome the pandli members (those who sing Bhajans (devotional songs), and may entertain with some acts relating to mythology) with garlands and some money.
    Now,  the hands of poor Sudama were filled with some serious cash(zoom the pic). With backstage a little far away, he had no choice but to carry on with the act as it is.
     This incident is really an irony and funny to see the clash of Indian traditions.
       Religious and funny. The combination don’t seem often.

      
    

A funny add

     See the spelling mistakes. lol. 😂😂 is a advertisement pamphlet of a beautician working near my house.
    She is daughter of a house maid.
  Many like her who do not have access to higher education due to financial condition of their families , instead opts for such professions that they can start to earn after a few months training.
       They are also not bad in their work. They seems to be quiet trained in their work from the reviews I have got.
    But their English may not be that good.
   That’s why you will find funny adds like this.
    May be it is a promotional strategy. If it is, I must say it is a good one (attracts attention).😂😂

Visions of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

    Dr APJ Abdul Kalam is the 11th president of India. According to many(including me) he is the most successful and eligible president India has ever had.
    A career scientist he became president in 2002. He has worked in DRDO and ISRO. He is the founder of India’s missile program making India self sufficient in ballastic missiles. Hence , he is known as the Missile Man of India.
       His greatness of not in any title but his visions of how to live life. These visions are the path to become an entrepreneur

1.  “Don’t take rest after your first victory because if you fail in second, more lips are waiting to say that your first victory was just luck.”

2. “All Birds find shelter during a rain. But Eagle avoids rain by flying above the Clouds.”

3.  “Failure will never overtake me if my definition to succeed is strong enough”.

4.  “Man needs difficulties in life because they are necessary to enjoy the success.”

5.  “If you want to shine like a sun. First burn like a sun.”  

6.  “It is very easy to defeat someone, but it is very hard to win someone”

7.  “All of us do not have equal talent. But , all of us have an equal opportunity to develop our talents.”

8. ” Be more dedicated to making solid achievements than in running after swift but synthetic happiness.”

9.  “Thinking should become your capital asset, no matter whatever ups and downs you come across in your life.” 

10.  ” Without your involvement you can’t succeed. With your involvement you can’t fail. ”

                  -All by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

In the face of destruction

        Near 4 am in the morning, I had a dream. Now I only remember why was I afraid of it.
     I remember TV flashing news that Pakistan Army has killed 10,000 Indian soldiers in the worst ever cease fire violation. PM Modi has thus declared war on Pakistan.
      Video shows our military officials sitting in a planning room deciding the best route for nuclear missiles.
     And.. I woke up.
     I realized it was just a dream but the fear was still there.
     I know what a nuclear war means (will mean).
     Both India and Pakistan are nuclear powers. Both have stockpile of nukes may be not in thousands but surely in 100s.
      I went to bathroom and drank some water. I look out of the window of the kitchen. I can see Nirmala anti(our neighbor that lives in the next block, humming and starting her daily chores. She is a nice person and a lovely mother who loves her children.
     Then, I imagined a blast that will brighten this night. I will be able to see her clearly. But I don’t think , I will see this happiness (that I am seeing now), on her face.
    Hence, I will prefer the dark .
   A single nuke can destroy not just a city but the entire world of Nirmala anti. And many more worlds like hers.
     A war more between India and Pakistan will mean irreversible destruction not only in the 2 nations but the entire world. Destruction of the specie known as human.
    Because it is proved that if 100 nukes are blasted in a area in a short period. It will be enough to end the world as we know it. The residue gases poisonous gases will cover the entire atmosphere blocking out the sunlight (that is the life energy of this planet) and bringing in the ice age , for several 100 years.
     All plants will die and then remaining animals and of course us.
     Mother earth will survive even then. She will spread life again. But we shall not be a part of it. May be it will be better that way.
      It is a naked truth that Pakistan is supporting several terrorist groups. Their hatred for India is so much that they are supporting those who are killing their own children, their own families. What kind of humans are they?
      If this led to a war….
  You may feel this is not your war, . But are wrong. Even if you are afar from these 2 nations. This way will find you.
    Therefore, it is the duty of every one of us, of every nation to prevent this war. Pakistan must be pressurised from every side , by every nation to stop it’s support to terrorist and to improve relation with India. Because it not not the duty of only India and a few countries to maintain peace.
     As in the face of destruction every nation (weather super power or not) will be equal. Everything in the end will be destroyed .
