Winning…

Life is not about winning battles to celebrate.
Rather, it is to save yourself from them.
Moving back skillfully is also a kind of victory.
Because…
Arrogance can make an angel, a satan
Whereas, Humbleness could convert a simple man into an Angel.

First Love….

First love

Everyone has a first love story which is unforgettable. I too had one, thanks to this beautiful poetry by Rumi, which enthrals me. The moment I read it that face suddenly appeared. I found myself standing on the same street, where I saw her the very first time. I was in 9th grade and she was in 8th grade. We both had the same weakness, Mathematics. Our tuition teacher used to give the same feedback to us i.e. Algebra, Integers, however we were both good in Trigonometry. It all started by solving one of the equation of algebra for her, which I still wonder how I solved it. Could be the power of love, I realized a new intensity in me, when she was around. That innocence, lovely smile and big vibrant eyes. Her eyes expressed it all. Left me bewildering, if that is for me or someone else, as many young boys like me were in queue, just for one look of hers. I simply couldn’t understand, was it love or just an infatuation. But I couldn’t hear anything bad about her. If someone dared, I got into a fight with that person, though I was an introvert and never easily engaged in such activity. My inability to express my feelings to her caused desperateness in me and I had couple of more fights. The news spread like a wild fire, this boy and that girl, something was cooking between them. The whole world knew about a newly developed love story.

Only we two were unaware. Majnoon was fighting for Laila, and she could only stare. I wanted to tell those people come on, don’t make a controversy, I even hadn’t proposed her. But how could one stop whispering, the evilness of tongues and ears. It was like watching an old Hindi movie in which Zaalim Zamana (cruel society) tried to demotivates the lovers. And in the same fashion, she stopped coming to the tuition classes. Her best friend told me she was even not going along with her. Hitler Father had arrested her, for some days he stopped her going to school and later only school and back to home, no friends or relatives. I also came to know that Hitler was looking for me, he often marched to the street. A Pathan, six-foot-tall, broad shouldered, big eyes, glared at me. I remained inside the tea shop till the time he was around. I knew a single punch of his on my thin structured body, could send me easily to the next world. But I remained patient and watched movie “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge”, to get the motivation. And it worked, with full determination, I wrote a letter to her, expressing my emotions in words and handed over to her friend.

I waited for her response, one day, a week, a month passed away but no response. I wrote another one and confirmed with her friend that she will deliver it. Still no response, three months have passed. For the first time in my life, I wept for a girl. I was confused because I saw that love in her eyes whenever we cross passed each other but no admittance from her side. All girls are like this, flirtatious was my thoughts about her. I stopped looking or reading her eyes. And never tried to speak with her neither did she. After a year, I passed my High School with 1st Grade, my joy was sky high, the same day I received a letter delivered to me by a street child. It was written by her dated one year back; the exact date I wrote the first to her. We met one day and she cleared all the confusions, how her best friend cheated her. I never got to know, why her friend never delivered the letters to me. Did she have a crush on me or what? I never got the answer, but our relationship did well.

 

Being yourself….

Dwell yourself into your inner self,

You will found a person not known to the outer world

The soul will become a mirror of yourself,

To answer all that is hidden in sub consciousness.

 

Cherish being in the state of solitude,

Enjoy the fun in conversing

You will be all alone

But the whole world will be with you.

 

Rumi

 

Strong Personality

Nobody throws stone on a fruitless tree. People throw it only on a tree which has ample of fruits.

Similarly, if someone have a strong personality people will always try to wronged him, no matter using the lies or irrational means. Nobody actually gives a damn to a wicked one.

For those strong people don’t worry, enjoy your life to the fullest. You got something which most people doesn’t have. You are a gifted one with some very special characteristics.

Age doesn’t matter…..

Age doesn't matter

 

Age is just a measurement of the time we spent in this world.

It has nothing to do with the spiritual journey we are having in this life.

God has sent us to the earth with a reason and we all have to fulfil it, willingly or unwillingly.

It depends on us, if we do good, we will always live in the hearts of people.

If do bad we still may be remember, but for wrong reasons.

Well, Good and Bad are like two sides of a coin, it will keep on tossing.

Age doesn’t matter, what does matter is what you have achieved in this world

Or what you will in the hereafter.

The soul inside you is immortal, independent of age.

It will carry the burden of what you did in this world.

What you sow here will reap in the hereafter.

In the name of Religion…..

Please read this one and comment what is your view on this.

 

I am writing this article because I am confused and misguided like several others in the name of religion. Let us first understand what religion is as told to us. A Religion is a belief in the existence of a supernatural power, that we call GOD. Every religion teaches, that there is a divine being, who had created the universe and everything within it. He is the preserver and destroyer. He created the galaxies, stars, sun, planets. He created birds, animals, reptiles, mosquitoes etc. He created man as well as Satan, the Jinns and other hidden creatures. Some religions say this life is a test, God is examining all of us. He will judge us on doomsday. Some say this life is a gift, live it to fullest, the heaven is here and so the hell. Some believe in reincarnation, the soul will take another form, after the death. Our sorrows, happiness, success, failures all is in his hands. A universal truth. But my question here is, did he created any religion? No, for me is No, and for all those people who really believe in GOD should say, no. It’s we humans who make religions. GOD only created man, he said to his angels to bow to Adam, as he was his finest creation. We as GOD’s finest creation should be most proud of, but are we really? Over the ages man has destroyed the nature for his own means, cutting of trees, mountains, polluted  water and air etc., there are numerous examples which we can see in today’s world. Mankind is under the process of self-annihilation. Man has not even spare the GOD, we broke his name into several pieces. Each religion is carrying a piece or more by converting it into its own form and selling it. It’s a great business, every religion carries its own version of GOD. These versions are sold in the market in the form of ideology or beliefs.

These religions have created a boundary for their followers. No one can dare to cross that barrier. It is actually more powerful than the borderline which separate the countries. Because it is more emotionally brain washed. Hinduism is for Hindus, Islam is for Muslims, Christianity is for Christians and so on. We are actually not divided by the borders but religions. When it comes to beliefs we are always at war with each other. The war of words and ideologies, one will be defeated or several can be killed in the name of religion. Examples are the crusades (or Holy wars) that ran for several hundred years. Jews, Muslims, Christians fought fiercely to gain control over the holy land of Jerusalem, Israel.  Millions lost their lives. Jerusalem is the shrine for all these three religions, they belong to the same family tree (Abrahamic religions) and they believe in the same GOD, the GOD of Abraham. Did GOD commanded them to do so or was it written in some scriptures, not at all. But they fought, for what? For their greed, to be powerful and religion served as a canopy. Over the time, religious leaders has fabricated these scriptures which benefits them and the political system. Religion and Politics always run hand by hand. There are numerous events like crusades that happened and still going on in various countries. It kill only the poor followers, who are influenced by these fraternities. At the end, they killed the HUMANITY, in the name of religion.

We all agree that all the religions carries same message, same teachings. Like love, respect, loyalty, truthfulness, brotherhood, GOD is one, Prophets and so on, the list is very vast. Yet the religions is the most common reason for the sufferings of the Man. When they enlighten us with such high standards to live, it is the one common reason of enmity. Doesn’t it sounds strange? We are very orthodox, perform every religious deity, we worship our lords in whatever form they are presented to us, spends lakhs of money in donation to religious trust, we should be more humble and kind,  but what we lack is the basic ……..HUMANITY. Unable to withstand other person, a Hindu can’t stand for a Muslim, a Muslim hates a Hindu and so on. There is always a barrier between us, which stops us to follow our conscience. It has become a sin to respect, love other religions people. Example is inter caste marriages, two persons in love get marry to spend their lives together, GOD will not have any problem with it, he will only bestow his blessings on them, but the filthy creatures down here will not accept it. They will terrified them or can create havoc. In my country, some people can even kill a person by seeing a piece of meat. The most stupid event I have ever seen or heard. Just by looking at the piece of meat, can anyone say which animal was it? Cow, Buffalo, Camel, Goat….I can’t say. But when a moron shouted aloud and claimed it belongs to an animal which they worship, believe me hundreds came out in the streets with their arms. They just heard a person who is a religious figure and they killed many for that sin, without even understanding the situation. That’s how we behave when it comes to our belief. Didn’t even realize that stupidity had just killed not only a human, but insulted the whole HUMANITY. One more incident that shocked the whole world happened last year in Pakistan. Some terrorists attacked a school and bombed it to ashes. They killed hundreds innocent children in the name of Jihad. What Jihad were they doing? When Islam clearly said that killing even a single innocent person is like killing the whole HUMANITY.

At broader level, we can conclude the similarity between religions is because their message is from the one universal being.  The message is HUMANITY. Perhaps, these religions are the part of this universal message of HUMANITY. It is dying slowly and steadily, a day will come we humans conspire by the satanic forces, would destroy it completely. That day will be the end of everything. GOD stated, he will one day ends everything we see. But that doesn’t mean we stop being human and destroy ourselves. I am not here to offend any religious sentiments or person, I even follow mine. The series of events we see in today’s world insisting us to think what and who are we following. No religion is bad but some morons are falsifying our beliefs, our mistake is we are following their fabricated religion. We should follow our religion, worship the almighty in whatever form written in our religious scripture. But should always be in the boundaries of HUMANITY. Because it is the one and only true religion. It is bigger than any country, any belief, any person. Remember, on the doomsday we will not be judged on the grounds of religion, but yes we will be benefited by our good deeds, HUMANITY.

Daily Prompt: Express

One of the lesson of my life would be my inability to express my emotions. Since my childhood, I had a notion that your action itself portrays your expression. Let me tell you it was my notion, in the real world it is not true. I love my parents, my wife, my children, my brothers and my near ones. I always thought they should be aware of that but at the time of crisis or some confusion about me, it goes into vain. A confusion creates a perception which could be wrong or right. Most of the time that judgement failed. We assume a lie which has been said in a manner that it looks true. Somebody poisoned you and scandalised it, but anyway it is true for most. In my view, if somebody loves you because he understands you. But that’s a fallacy in real world. People always carry misconceptions, believe what has been told to them. Perhaps somebody loves you doesn’t mean he know you very well. I come to the conclusion, one needs to express not through the facial expression but by words. Words are magical, if they put in someone’s ear properly or timely it can convert a lie into truth. That’s exactly we can observe happening in the whole world.

The world has become a political ground for everybody. What we see in TV, newspaper, on internet, or anywhere, everyone is busy expressing their views on some or other things of less importance. We should salute our politicians, media persons, entrepreneur, business tycoons, for their unbeatable ability of expressive sayings. They are master storytellers. They can tell you an egg comes first or the hen, they can bring the moon on earth, they can telecast any nuances for whole day but not the truth. They will hide it, throw it deep down into the earth’s crust. I never understand why people spend their times in talking bull shits only. It seems either they are very self sufficient or they have nothing to loose.

There is a saying in India ‘An empty mind is the home for Satan’. Keep on talks…talks…talks….express…express…express.
