Women - Do I Need Say More

Today is Women's Day, to be honest, which day isn't!



The past year and the beginning of 2018 has seen a lot of movements to support & strengthen women. What everybody does not realize that women or the feminine gender is the as much an integral part of the fabric as any other being. There was a beautiful movie that was based society without women. It was complete chaos!

I believe women are special in their own way, and in no way they need to prove anything to anybody. Rather, every day, they should feel special. They do so much, yet demand so little. Be it mother, girlfriend, wife, daughter sister, they embrace and absorb so much.

This is to all women - grandmothers, mothers, teachers, aunts, sisters and nieces.

If you could look past the flash light,
If you could look into the future,
There is darkness,
There is nothingness without you.

If we could understand you,
If we could know you,
We might not talk,
We might not stand next to you.

Happy Women's Day!

Shelters for Animals

The festival of 'Holi' just ended. In one of the local newspapers I read an article about a group of youngsters urging people to allow stray dogs to live in house compounds and with the help of some locals, they were also building make-shift shelter homes. That was a really noble gesture because colors used in 'Holi' can harm animals.

That led me to think, that when one festival can make people build animal shelters, then why don't we actually do so permanently. Now I might be ignorant and there might be some already in place. But when I see a stray dog, it makes confirms my notion.

Recently, people have become quite active about animal rights, we have come a long way from making fun and jokes on 'Maenka Gandhi' for being so active in support of animals to actually starting pledges and NGO's to protect them. But still, there is dearth of good shelter homes for stray animals.

It is time we started thinking about building proper care homes where stray an…

Woh Din....

Kabhi Yeh Kalpana Na Ki Thi,
Ki Zindagi Itni Vyast Ho Jaegi.
Dosto Ki Masti Duur Ho Jaegi,
Chai Pe Hassi Yu Ruth Jaegi.

Zindagi Ab Pehle Jesi Nahi,
Ab Khel Kud Ki Jagah, Shift Timing Hai,
Khanne Peene Ki Jagah, Pese Aur Kharche Ki Fikar Hai.

Yaad Karna Nahi Chahta Beete Pallo Ko,
Jeena Chahta Huin Fikkar Ko Udake,
Ab Jesi Bhi Hai Zindagi, Jeeta Huin Isse Hassi Mein Udake.

Have We Changed or Is It Our Perception?

It is often said that people change as they grow; but is it actually true?

When we are kids, nothing has any effect on us. We are like revolutionaries; we do what we desire without caring about what anyone would think of us. And if anybody thought they could change us, well we showed them that they shouldn't wish for stars. You tell us something not to do, and we the first thing we did was bite the forbidden apple. The only person we ever listened to was the one we were scared of; or the one who we idolized. We were happy in our own world; and yes, it was our
own world, our own rules and our own society!

But then something really tragic happened - we grew up! Suddenly we were too big for our own world. The rules (or no rules) that governed us became irrational. Our perception changed; rather, it died!

Where we never gave a second thought about doing anything, now we have started thinking about everything. Where we were scared of few people, now we are scared of everyone. Where we

Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Teri aankho ka ked karna,
Teri aawaaz ka khamosh karna,
Teri ahat se sab tham jana,
Nahi bhoolunga mein
Jab tak hain jaan,jab tak hai jaan.
Teri Muskurahat pe qurbaan hona,
Teri khushi ke liye zindagi haarna,
Tujhe paane ke liye khud kho jana,
Nahi Bhulunga mein,
Jab tak hai jaan, jab tak hai jaan.
Teri Dhadkan ka zor se dhadkana,
Tere chehre pe woh sakoon ka samana,
Tera mujh mein sama jana,
Nahi bhulunga mein,
Jab tak hai jaan, Jab tak hai jaan.

Inspired by Shayari written by Gulzaar sahab for the movie Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
