Accept and Learn

Couple of days back I and my elder son had an argument. He did some mistake and I told him to correct it. He was continuously arguing with me, that it happened without his knowledge and that it was not really his mistake. So whatever I was trying to make him realize was going out of control. At the end I told him, "Honey, if you accept the mistake there is way you can change and learn, if you don't there is no way you are going to learn", As soon as I  uttered these words from my mouth he was calm and relaxed. He started to realize what went wrong and said" I think I will be very much aware while doing the same next time" and he smiled. A sense of satisfaction surmounted me. I thought my goal was achieved and I felt relaxed. Do you agree?

Few days before I saw my younger kicking a ball, bouncing and catching it. He was calling me and asking me to watch the same on how he throws the ball in the air and catches it back. I was surprised and astonished. He usually goes down to play with his friends and without me being physically around coaching him up, he learnt to do that from his friends.I was wondering how much effort of practice has made to do a perfect catch today. During the initial days of my Toastmaster journey I used to say why the speech not being perfect this time. If I introspect may be I would not have done enough practice to achieve the same. In life too, we need to repeat any act or practice over and over again to achieve perfectness of our desire. It can be applied for Cooking, Driving or even learning a new skill. If we put our heart and soul in the same, what we want to achieve can be done with ease with everyday practice.

I heard my friend say these yoga poses are too tough for me. It is not coming perfect. I don't think so it is possible. I asked her," When the teacher says to follow and continue the asanas(postures) are you doing or atleast trying according to the count which the teacher suggest". She looked at me sadly and said " No, I don't even stay until she finish the count". I asked her then how can you achieve perfect. She had a great desire, but if we don't work for it perfectness is not our cup of tea.

Mood Swings

Last week was full of festive mood being Diwali as the occasion. Sweets and Savories were at home in large number and the kids had so much fun eating them. I had to keep an eye on all the intake they were about to consume for the day. Even if I don't buy it comes from neighbors and well wishers. My sons after having spicy treats they ask for sweets then they ask for Spicy treats. This was a routine and it was kept going on for few days. This made me think that even in life too we are like those little kids, when some events make us upset, we always look forward for the sweet happenings in our life. Eventually life takes its turns and most of the times it is topsy-turvy. If we can start enjoying all the moments what life can bring across, definitely we will be able to enjoy the platter in front of us may be it is spicy at times and too sweet in the other times. All moments in the virtue of shaping us for a better tomorrow.

Journey of Sprout

A tiny knock
A little noise
A lovely thud
A mighty courage
A land crack
Wow ! A little sprout !

Head held high
Enjoying the beauty
Saying 'Hi' to the fellow sprouts
Dancing in Happiness
Ready to grow

With the first rain drop
Touching the tip
What a gentle way
To nurture his head

Journey begins
To stay strong and grow right


Inspire & Learn

One of those rainy days in the last week, I had to take my elder son for his Drama Theatre class. I couldn't get a single auto at that moment. But we were clear in heading for the class and no mood to quit at any cost. After couple of rejections from few auto drivers, one elderly auto driver stopped and asked our route. Having said the same, he said Yes. For us, that was a great miracle moment as no one was wllling to come. He himself started to talk on the current politics which really seemed to be an eye opener for me as I don't follow regularly on those lines.By the way he started the talk, I could feel that I need to talk to him. I asked his whereabouts, how long does he work and how many kids does he have...etc to spend the time until we reached. His life story was so inspiring that he left me awestruck at the end when I got down.

Inspiring points from his life

-35 years he's been driving auto with no break in the lifetime
-He starts exactly at 8 AM in the morning and reaching home by 7 PM
-His elder son is in Military working in Jammu and Kashmir
-Elder daughter being married to a good person and she also  been taught good hands on in tailoring
-Younger daughter has been specialized in beauty parlour taining and working with Green Trends with a salary of 15K and going and coming by two wheeler

After I asked for a ride, he himself said I am going to put the metre and the rest if you feel like you can give more.

There are N number of learnings from his life. I hope we all got what we need to take from his life. Agree?

Movie time

We had a complete Black Out for few days and even the internet is gone for a while. Chennai's weather made me to indulge in a movie after a very long time. Only I had the DVD "Lord of the Rings". Usually kids won't be there when I watch a movie. This time my younger son around 4.5 years stayed for sometime to watch with me. I was observing him while watching the same. In the late night when we went to bed together he asked me "Can we discuss something about the movie". I was ...totally surprised when he asked me that question. With a surprising smile I said "Yes honey we can discuss". He told me "The moral of the movie is that, Always good sustains at the end and Bad will always get punished". If I look at it deeply because we enforce being good, intake good and speak good all the time, this has deeply enrooted in him to think that way. I am glad that he picked only the goal of the movie and not the process.

Bicycle Fun

Today, I and my elder son had some good time discussing different genres of life. Past few days of Black out in Chennai had some good memories together as a family. We discussed about his Bicycle which we bought when we returned to India and the fact he is not using much these days caused me concern.  I told him" Honey, its been long you used the cycle and look at it now, it's almost getting rusty'. With that I said, "Anything which is unused for a long time will turn rusty, even our brain too". If we don't use it horizontally in all walks of life, then it may turn idle and it will not be useful for us when we want to use. Same with relationships too, if we don't balance and maintain and take good care, they may turn rusty soon. What is your take for today?

Rainy Day thought

Today morning, the loudness of thunder, the brightness of lightning and the sound of the severe rains reminded me of HIS superiority, HIS majesty, HIS magnificence, HIS power and I couldn't control my tears. I wondered thinking about HIM, HE is the super power and HE is omnipresent. No words to describe HIS mighty power. HE is the all knower and doer. By saying so Ego, Jealousy, Anger, Hatred and all the evil names(qualities) went hiding inside a teeny tiny basket and kept very quiet. When the goodness raises its arms, evil spirit fades away and eventually dies.

First Rhyme

   Ever since my elder son was born, I was very much hooked on singing my very own made up rhymes for him and that turned out to be my sweet spot. I had a very wonderful transition when I switched over from the software career to freelance writer.
Recently I have got an wonderful opportunity to work with Magic Box a renowned animation studio and my first ever song has been published in You Tube. The composition was done in Germany and sung by a German Singer. It is a wonderful event. All glory to HIM. I am happy to share this exciting moment with you all.

Lasting Memories

Roaring Storm
Gusting winds
Swaying tree branches
Well lit moonlight
Feathery clouds
Came together,
To make an
ever lasting memory
I am submerged
Completely in their lovely warmth
I expect them to return
Again in high spirit and full speed
To spread the warmth, joy and peace
In Tis' momentum of life

#Memories #Rain

Little Rain Drop

In the deepest of the clouds,
Exists a tiniest drop.
Waiting to pour down,
With all its mighty showers
Days passed by
All the fatty fluffy clouds
Chattering and roaring
In the enormous sky
Boasting and Thundering
Their infinite presence
The Tiniest drop wondered
Scared and Terrified
Thinking of its existence
And the momentum to flow down
Every day was challenging
Gathered all the courage to evoke
There came a day
When the lightning danced
Fearless being the state
The Tiniest drop grew enlarged and gigantic
And reached the wonderful earth
Danced in joy
The little drop realized
It’s amazing to be part of an Ocean
Fear is no more a word
And it learnt to enjoy life.

Reading fun

One day I was sitting relaxed in the park lawn and reading something while my kids were at play. I could see many people doing restless walking in the mood of shedding weight. I was enjoying all the lovely sight. While I was indulging on my own thoughts, I could hear few ladies walk by in front of me gossiping the life story of someone. She shouldn't have done this or she must have done this is their judgment and statement. I was looking at the tall trees standing in front o...f me with a tall and majestic look with all green around. I wondered they have been hearing this stories everyday. Still they give the same gentle breeze, still they are tall and still they are very green and gives us shade. We should either should not listen gossip which doesn't bring value addition to us or anyone or if we do hear we need to let go within ourselves and not passing around and stay majestic like the trees. Instead some gossips doesn't let us sleep or sometimes make us depress. I believe we need to evolve? Trees are a great motivation.

Mother and Son Discussion

One fine evening I and my elder son were discussing about planting trees and the discussion came as soon as he questioned about weeds. I explained about weeds and the effect of leaving them in the field may finally destroy the plant too by sucking all the nutrients of the plants. This triggered a thought in me that even we have weeds too and if we can destroy them from time to time, the soul and the human body survives in its vibrant, positive and high spirited mode otherwise one day it may fall yielding to all unnecessary stuffs in life with all the negative emotions surmounting us. Be careful to pluck them as soon as you identify them.

Grandpa Golden Memories

While I was doing Yoga, I remembered one of my lovely days from 7th grade. I had a friend whom I was sending letters regularly during the summer vacation. I wrote a postcard which started like this "Due to the grace of Almighty, I am fine". My Grandfather while posting the letter noticed that and said "It is not Due to the grace" change to "By the grace". Thinking those days from when I have started writing to till date, feeling so nostalgic , remembering his presence, the mighty words he used all feel great at this moment. Golden memories !!!!
