No matter what happens in life,

Never sit back n never stop living..

Because if God has taken something from you..

I am sure, a lot more HE will be giving..!

Never lose those precious moments in life..

Let go of the things that make you sad..

Because no matter how crazy things get..

Trust me Life ain’t that bad..!

 Its all about holding on..

Even after u have had a fall..

You need to stand up and walk for yourself..

When u cannot even seem to crawl..!

Keep smiling and keep spreading those cheers..

Whenever you get a chance..

Life will always keep rocking..

All you got to do is keep on a soulful dance..!! 😀 😀

No matter how tough or struggling it is..

Walk the world like you are the QUEEN..

Or walk as if, you don’t care who is..!! 🙂 🙂

This is a conversation I had with an amazing friend..Devendra aka DG..He is an amazing writer (though he doesn’t agree) and a beautiful soul.. 🙂
Let me first give you all a little background on how it actually began..rest you will get once you decide on reading it..this is a conversation that began with a rhyming text, moved and with a rhyming reply and continued for a lot more rhymes..!
It all started one fine sunday..I had just gotten up after being sick (literally) for around fifteen odd days..after all those viruses and bacteria, that were stuck up in my body for too long time, found it hard to struggle with those high doses of medicines..I was back to the normal life again..now the brain was ready to process anything and everything it came across and the heart was pumping correctly..basically the job that all the organs were assigned to do were back in action..! 😛 Believe it or not but this entire conversation went on for around five-six hours with lots of breaks in between but no other word except what has been written below..Enjoy the ride.. 🙂 and for this one, you got to fasten your seat belts really tight! 😛
All I would like to say is THANKS DG for tolerating my insanity to that extent! 🙂 🙂

bloom-conversations

DG: don’t succumb to fever again

Because that would be a bummer…

eat plenty of fruits and grain

so that u don’t lose out on another summer…

build your body as your shield

It’s the only weapon u can wield…

Take care of your health

It’s your long lasting wealth..

 

SJ: I will take good care of my health sir..

N make it a point that I don’t fall again in the fate of fever..

I got to work..and work pretty hard..

So that I can go shopping with that money in my card..(lol) 😛

 

DG: so r v talking in rhymes

Its actually worth a dime…

I like your words..quick and witty

compared to mine…dull and shitty..

 

SJ: Those words ain’t shit..those are some golden ones..

I dun mind spending my time..

Writing rhymes with the chosen ones! 🙂

 

DG: that’s such a sweet thing to say

I am sure u always have your way…

you r as sweet as honey

adorable as a little bunny.. 😀

 

SJ : So much praise makes me blush..

now get to the facts, these words u gotta flush!

 

DG: these are facts I don’t know y would u think otherwise

I know better than tell to a beautiful damsel lies!!!

especially one who has a friend called pooji

whom I called sooji..

who wants to beat me to a pulp

whenever she acquires the knowledge to become the Hulk..

 

 

DG: I know its not my turn

but I could not resist the itch n burn..

don’t u think v folks are strange n crazy

talking in rhymes though v both are lazy!!:D

 

SJ: I am all laughters and giggles reading this..

N I would like give the pooji sooji thing a miss!

I wouldn’t have been able to resist too..

I would continue with this in some time as I got some work to do!

 

DG: I never meant to offend your friend

I like the way u defend..

sure go about your work

let me not keep u in a lurk!!!!

 

SJ: Work will continue..though m done with most of it..

Tell me where have u been hiding this talent till now..

Seeing your excellent rhyming..

All I can say is WOOWWW!!

 

DG: Ohh please don’t flatter me

my talent is not to rhyme but to b gibberish…

but your other poems I wanna see…

u have a surge that make your words lavish….

 

SJ: That’s quite a compliment from you I must say..

For that its thanks and warm regards I pay..

A few of my poems are updated on wordpress..

Trying to go slow n steady to avoid creating a mess!

Also don’t forget to drop in your lovely comments..

People just read across without writing a few words, inner me laments!

 

DG: u know u can never plan your words

so b spontaneous like a elephants herd..

your words online

are divine..

I like your thoughts process

caring, smart, happy but with some duress…

don’t let your heart lament

for lack of comments..

I will let u know what I like personally

would help me know hw u wrote them so artistically…

but m a bad critic..often failing to let my thoughts flow..

my words are not auric..and I don’t wanna deter your glow..

 

SJ: I love critics as much as I love those praises..

For both, I know in life, will take me places!

Keep reading through them at-least, enough to leave me with smiles..

The thought that I am not the only one walking those miles!

 

P.s- m sure we both have gone crazy doing the things we do..

This rhyming thing, how long are you planning to continue?

P.s 2- lets not stop this soon even if u feel done..

Coz m loving it..its super duper fun!!

 

DG: every one walks the same road as u

trying to find out sense in the accompanying view..

your smiles are what your friends desire

its a reflection of the inner fire…

I will continue as long as u want..

or till one of us cant..

I know its crazy and its fun

its like singing hot cross buns…

 

SJ: the company thing was not regarding the journey of life,

but the journey of blogging..

I thought there were no readers out there,

n I was the only one slogging!

 

DG: that’s the exact point I am trying to make

your words are yours and for no one else’s sake..

even if no one reads keep your spirits high

your words should cheer u and tell your frustrations goodbye…

u are seriously not bored of me??..

and don’t u have some thing to do u busy bee??..

don’t take me wrong

m loving it like a good old song…

I just wanna b sure

m not disturbing your leisure..

 

SJ: Ofcourse they cheer me..they fill me with delight..

They bring me back to life..when I start loosing its sight!

They make me smile,they make me giggle..

They make me sit, They make me wiggle!

 

SJ: I am not bored,

this is rather fascinating..

I have a few more things to do,

but nothing as exciting!

 

DG: that’s what I am talking about

the power..the strength..the clout..

what u said came straight from your heart

hits the bulls eye with an effortless dart..

 

SJ: On the other hand, I hope its not your time that I am wasting,

Coz you are the who should b busy with stuffs,

After all u r a hot shot doc in the making!

 

DG: even m fascinated by the craziness we share

the way we are letting our words lay bare..

 

SJ: The craziness like this is what I all day crave..

What else do u expect from a corporate slave!

 

DG: break the chains of slavery

lets do something full of bravery

go out and make a new discovery

unshackle the chain that make life rubbery

 

SJ: Oh! I wish we could do whatever we wanted..

But man there r spirits with which we r haunted..!

An urge to earn takes over your passion..

Pursuing hobby as a career is difficult n not much in fashion!

But today I have no regrets with life..

Coz with all the ups n downs it has been a beautiful strife..

 

P.s- I am going to save this conversation,

Since it has taken a lot of pain..

Trust me it has been overwhelming n joyful..

and I am going to read it over again n again..

 

DG: I know and I share your concern

this life is a burn…

in the end no one should have regrets

because only they prevent atonements..

 

DG: how are u planning to save it..

even I wanna relive it..

I never expected this day to be so bright

it has brought in a new refreshing light..

 

SJ: There is an option called e-mail conversation..

Which can be used to re-live the situation!

I too never expected the day to be such fine,

And i must say, the pleasure is all mine..

 

DG: its gonna be a long long email..

a literal conversational holy grail

i am so enjoying this..

if everyone could be like us I wish..

 

 

SJ: I will forward you the same n we will see its length..

Haha I can read the literal conversational holy grail..yes I have the strength!

Indeed there should be more souls to join..

Just hope wherever they r, they r doing just fine 🙂

 

DG: are u realizing the fact

both of us are hard nuts to crack..

we have kept our words flowing and our words rhyming..

like two trains on parallel tracks..

to be honest I don’t want another soul to join this conversation..

where we both are adding rhyming brick like poetic mansion…

 

SJ: Of course I realized it, realized it long back..

That both of us indeed..Are hard nuts to crack!

Lets see how far these rhyming trains move..

Till then both of us r totally on the groove!

 

DG: I like the groove

and the way your hands typing those words move..

never had a conversation like this in life

this is gonna stretch like a giraffe..

this is goona b epic

totally madly eccentric 

 

SJ: This is my first timer too..

N m really glad with the way we do..

This conversation and this day is gonna b a cheerful memory..

N together we r gonna make it..legen-wait fot it-dary..legendary 🙂 🙂

 

DG: damn girl I wanted to use that line

but no issues I will use another way to shine..

lets meet up some day some time

break bread and have some wine..

 

SJ: Yaay I used it first n now I shine..

You m sure will come up with a better line..

Well wine wouldn’t really be much of my taste..

N yeah we’ll catch at the right time..Why make a haste!

 

DG: who’s making a haste

I have all d time in the world to waste…

if wine does not suit your taste buds

what’s suits your thirsts…

 

SJ: I prefer sprite or diet coke with my food..

Yes we have all the time in d world dude!

Lets see till when our rhymes seem fit..

We will meet up soon and rock it!

 

DG: nice choice and it suits your appetite…

miss diet and petite..

don’t worry even if our rhymes are totally misfit

we are so gonna rock it..

 

SJ: We are going to rock it no matter what,

that’s what i meant..

I agree with your words..

cent percent 😀

 

DG: I have to lament

u have to excuse me for a moment..

I have to run a errand

give me some time for myself to fend..

 

SJ: Oh sure u can take your time..

There is absolutely no hurry..

We can continue it when you find time..

There’s nothing to worry! 🙂 🙂

Life takes us through loads of ups and downs..

The ups, we enjoy..

The downs..we struggle..

There are moments that make us sad..

There are moments that brighten up our days..

Its not about expecting everyday to pass out smoothly..

Its about gathering the experiences throughout the journey..

 

 After all that I have been through..
After all those times that I have stood up after a fall..

Here I am..

Falling..but still rising back..!

Being cheated..but still loving..!

Broken every moment..but still recovering..!

Dying a bit everyday..but still growing..!

Crying inside..but still smiling..!

Tied with a rope..but still moving..!

Tired..but still working..!

Failing..but still learning..!

Lost the wings..but still flying..!

Loads to say..but still listening patiently..!

A responsible lady holding up my world..but still a child at heart..! 😀

This is a tribute from Mr. Amitabh Bachchan to Delhi rape victim with his poem..

Somehow I could not resist myself from re-posting this on my blog..
Still not sure how long the situations are going to be the way it is..when will the RIGHT action be taken against the WRONG doers..

Still keeping on hope..that someday the world will be a better place to live in..! Amen!

Maa bahot dard seh kar..
bohot dard de kar..
tujhse kuch kah kar main jaa rahi hun..

Aaj meri vidai main jab sakhiyaan milne aayengi…
Safai­d Jode main lipti dekh sisak sisak mar jayengi…
Ladki­ hone ka khud pe fr wo Afsos jatayengi…

M­aa tu unse itna kah dena Darindo k duniya main Sambhal kar rehna…
Maa Rakhi par jb Bhaiya Kalai suni rah jayegi..
yaad mujhe kar kar jab unki aankh bhar ayegi…
Tilak mathe par karne ko Maa rooh meri bhi machal jayegi…
Maa tu bhaiya ko rone na dena…
Main sath hu har Pal unse kah dena…

Maa Papa bhi chhup chhup bohot royenge…
main kuch na kar paya ye kah k khud ko kosenge….
Maa dard unhe ye hone na dena..
Ilzaam koi lene na dena…
Wo Abhimaan hai mera samman hai mera..
tu unse itna keh dena….

Maa­ tere liye ab kya kahu..
dard ko tere shabdon main kaise bandhu…
fir se jeene ka mauka kaise maangu…

Maa­ log tujhe satayenge….
mu­jhe azaadi dene ka tujhpe ilzaam lagayenge….
Ma­a sab sah lena par ye NA kehna..
“Agle janam Mohe Bitiya na dena” 😦 😦

Over the time I have realized that..its not always about time..but all about PRIORITIES..

Its not about the inner feelings that you have..its all about showing them out to your loved ones..

Its not about how well u could or u did perform..its all about the outcome and results..

Its not about staying away from life’s attractions while all others seem to be swayed away by it..its all about your morals, your principles and your respect for them..

 

 

Its not about the different paths u can track upon..its all about choosing the right one..

Its not about supporting or going against your family and loved ones..its all about supporting d truth without fearing the outcome..

Its not about those thousand trials..its all about that one FINAL thing..

Its not about staying far away from ur loved ones..its all about being connected despite the distance..

 

 

Its not about what others think, feel and say about u..its all about how “U” feel about yourself..

Its not about those thousand people who think u can’t do it..its all about that “ONE” who believes that u can..

Its not about the times when people start thinking that u are wrong..its all about when u start doubting yourself..

Its not about the moments that broke u down..its all about the moments when u stand up and fight back..

luckyoptimist_com-love-and-life-quotes-8_large

Its not about the number of times others made u cry..its all about the number of times u wiped the tears o f d ones who made u cry..

Its not about the scenario or situation which makes u doubt a person..its all about the TRUST  u still have on him..

Its not about speaking and supporting on social issues..its all about ur participation and involvement in making the world a better place to live..

Its not about getting prepared for the worst when u still have little hope in the heart..its all about your attitude when u actually face that worst!!

 

 

Its not about giving all those lectures n gyaan to others when they mess up..its all about applying them in those critical times in your own life..

Its not about remembering the Almighty in times of pleasure and pain..its all about believing in His existence..

Its not about dressing up right and looking ur best..its all about having those right feelings in your heart..

Its not about passing moments between “I HATE U” to “I LOVE U”..its all about travelling the journey VICE-VERSA..

 

 

Its not about meeting hundreds of people everyday..its all about finding that “special one”..

Its not about getting that one big surprise on one special day..its all about those several little things everyday that keep u happy throughout..

Its not about penning down whatever u feel..its all about connecting with your thoughts..

In the end..its not about breathing or existing or even surviving..its all about LIVING..!! :):)

Another poem that is close to me..This was written around seven years back..when I was 16..! The prime teen-age..faced with loads of issues..choosing the right career being the major one! Age when all you dream is glitz and glamour, every second thing you see looks tempting..when making friends and losing them happens as frequently as mood-swings..when forever meant forever..when you start realizing who are the true ones..when you start dreaming of doing something in life..when responsibility falls on your shoulders for the first time in life..when it is difficult to differentiate between the right and the wrong paths..when you think you have had no significance uptil now and you have ended up as a total scum..when you feel the need to be wanted and loved..when you feel that nobody has the right to cut the wings of your dreams..when there are more questions than ever and you seem to find answers to none..when you are all confused and messed up..!

This is a call to The Almighty..to help me do something worthy in life..to prove my existence..!

Make me aware of my presence,

I feel I have no significance..

Make me a part of your world too,

Let me feel..that I am there too..!

I feel nobody understands me,

I feel nobody knows me..

I feel I have no worth,

I feel no worthier than dirt..!

Like a man standing in the crowd,

I stand lonely shouting aloud..

O Lord God! Tell me my worth,

Which shall make me feel proud..!

Let the world know of my presence,

Let the world identify my appearance..

Just give me ONE opportunity,

To become the protagonist of your story..!

I will not let you down,

Just give me one chance..

One chance to prove the world,

That I am there too..!!

I am there too..!!

Yes..I feel happy, happier and probably the happiiessstttt 🙂
Three ANGELS of my life have been engaged recently and will soon be tying knots with their prince charming..
Rishika (my Janeman) , Sarda (Little Champ! ) and Manish (its actually Manisha but we prefer calling her Manish :p) 🙂 A bigg CONGRATULATIONS girlfriends 🙂

Past few days have been great..an absolute delight..the fun in teasing your best buddies, hanging around with them..giving advises/suggestions on what they should/should not do or say (and learning in the process! 😛 )..going gaga over their fiancee..admiring all those gifts they give/receive..not leaving a chance to peek into their cellphones and reading their conversations (to get more information to tease them later!), listening to their love stories..on how they met and the entire journey..superfun! 🙂 🙂 At times I feel I am more excited than the love birds! 😛

This is a little gift of words from my side..(of’course u’l get a bigger one at the wedding 😛 )

 

Happy, thrilled, elated and overjoyed,

Its time for party and celebrations..

For finding the prince charming of your life,

I wish you heartiest Congratulations.. 🙂

I feel so happy and delighted..

To the entire world, I wanna scream..!

All I would like to say to the handsome guys..

(Saurav B. , Saurav S. and  Vivek)

Is “Welcome to the team!” 🙂

All my memories with you people,

shall be cherished and preserved..

May you get all the happiness and Love..

 that you always wanted and truly deserved 🙂

May your relationship be healthy and strong,

And you always be together in all the phases of life..

I wish you all the happiness in the world,

May you have the best-est days in life 🙂

Love you all..God Bless ya 🙂
 

Another poem that is inspired from a picture. This is another beautiful picture by Gawie Richter from A Blog’s Life.

Gawie is an amazing artist and his pictures are absolutely breathtaking! This is a paper cut doll made by him. I thought of writing on it the moment I saw it on his blog. And here comes my another attempt at Ekphrastic poetry..

1

All was well till that August evening,

We both were happy in each other’s arms..

 I felt that finally I had met my prince..

You left me mesmerized in your charms..! 🙂

We were in love..madly and deeply,

Everything in life seemed to be perfect and true..

But God had some other plans in mind..

Of which both of us had no clue..!

The next day would mark our first anniversary,

And I had all plans to make it special..

Your favorite flowers, your favorite music,

I  was sure the day would be amazing and  memorable..

I was waiting for you to return from the office,

Dressed in the Red saree you gifted me the day before..

The room was entirely lit with candles,

Red heart shaped balloons filled the entire floor.. 🙂

I felt both excited and nervous,

I literally had butterflies inside me..

It seemed like minutes were taking hours to pass,

I just couldn’t wait for you to see me.. 🙂

When you didn’t arrive at your usual hour,

I got a little angry for I thought  you would be coming late..(as usual)

Work was always important for you, I Knew,

But at-least today, u shouldn’t have made me wait..!

The clock struck 9 and I got a little worried,

For you were always home by this time..

I thought of giving you a call..and scolding you,

For, being a married man, coming that late from work was a crime..! (ain’t it ) 😛

As I moved towards the hallway, the phone started ringing,

I ran towards it, expecting it to be you..with your usual reasons for being  late..

But I heard a voice that was not yours,

And I was all of a sudden, both worried and amazed..!

Whoever was there on the other end,

Told me that you had met an accident..!!!! 😦 😦

I was shocked, baffled and shattered all at once,

I began yelling and howling like an insane..

My world that was all firm uptill now..

Was suddenly a house of cards in a hurricane..!

I picked up the phone again,

(that had dropped down on hearing the news)

Expecting a little more information..

All I could hear was that you had died on spot,

And people who identified you were taking you for cremation..!

I could not utter a single word,

I had literally broken down by then..

I did not know how to react,

With nothing to speak and no one to listen..!

My world seemed to have collapsed,

Which was all shimmering uptill now..

I sobbed and cried..and cried and cried……

I had no idea what to do and how..!

The candles that were lit with happiness and hope,

Were now disturbing the darkness of my life..

I felt angry at him for being such a selfish man,

For breaking the vows and leaving behind his wife..!!

Here I am, still surviving your death,

Eleven years have passed since then..

The only hope that keeps me going,

Is that one day we will unite once again..

I will shower all the love that has been inside me,

When I will be by your side Once again..

My true Life will begin when life on earth ends..

Waiting for the day till we will unite in heaven..! 🙂 🙂

The Silver Hope!

A duet with a beautiful soul..Shruti Fatehpuria from A Shade of Pen..An amazing writer who wows me with every single piece of her write..This is my attempt to recreate the magic with her.. 🙂

violent_crashing_waves_hd_widescreen_wallpapers_1440x900

Another day has begun..

Will the cycle tirelessly repeat?

Or will the new sun break the pattern that is endless?

Will those feelings go away??

Or will they still fill my mind?

Will I still be bound by your memories?

Or shall I look into a new sunrise..?

So many questions..

So few answers..!

The puzzle baffles me..

And yet I walk..

Hoping time will heal..time will tell..

The roads ahead that are waiting for me..!

I don’t know if I want to meet you again in this journey of Life..

I don’t even know if I want to move ahead..!

tumblr_lux1cuwtzg1qg2xooo1_500

As of now, I am weighed down..

With all those unanswered questions..

Walking like a dead..!

Lifeless and lonely..I have no one to blame..

I walk along the dusty miles..Unaware of the ones I left..

Trapped in my memories and broken with my loss..!!

I look for a ray of hope..

That will guide me to a brighter place..

Where there would be less of sorrow..!

Less of your memories..

And more of my own space..

Where I can think to live once again..

Dream once again..!

I am not yet done, my story isn’t over..

There is more to me than what meets your eye!

I will walk till the end to kill the demon of hate..

And once again trace back the roads..

To the place I truly belong..

I will be back as a free bird..

With the entire sky before me..

Where once again the hope will gleam..

 Where once again I will live my dreams..!
