If

No matter what tragedy God throws your way, no matter what great test he plans,
If he just keeps the knowledge of what it could have been,
If he just keeps the reminiscences of what had been,
If he just keeps the images of the good present that you won’t have…
Away from you…
You can survive it soo easily!
Ah! If only he loved us as much as to make things easy.
He loves us evermore.
And the infinite love shows.
Believe me.

Kya Chahta hai Dil?

Khamoshiyan chahta hai dil,

phir akelepan se kyun ghabrata hai dil?

Tanhaaeyon ki raah acchi hi thi anjani,

Chalkar sheekhne ki yeh zid kyun hamne thani?

Khud par guroor itna kiya nahi kabhi tha

Jiska muaavza ab jhila rahi yeh manzil…

Ansun, udhen-bun kya ab shab talak chalenge?

Yehi khayal ab toh dahala raha hai dil…

Tanhaeeyon se bhagta hai dil…

Tanhaeeyon se machalta hai dil,

Phir tanhaeeyon mein hi kyun samhalta hai dil?

Khamoshiyan chahta hai dil,

phir akelepan se kyun ghabrata hai dil?

Hazaron aankhon ke beech khud ko khoya mahsoos karo

Hazar logon ke beech bhi akela mahsoos karo

Aisa kab chahta hai dil?

Par jab akela baith dil ko humne tatola,

Toh apnapan, pyar mangta hai dil,

Apno ka sahara, khayal mangta hai dil,

Akelapan kya janta hai dil?

Kehte hai dil massom hai,

Kya isiliye pachtata hai dil?

Akhir, kya chahta hai dil?…..

Things I learn – Post 1

I’ve decided to try something. I’m usually very efficient, despite being not very organised on paper. But of late this is proving to be a problem that i need to overcome. So, this blog shall become my documenting medium. I shall record things I need to keep a track of, and more importantly, things i need to learn in life here. They will mostly be simple truths of life, that I need to learn by experience. These notes will help me consolidate things, by writing it down, as well as by reminding me of the costs for such epiphanies!

So, for my first entry; this one is two days too late.

No one is out there to help you. Extension of help is highly regulated by convenience.

Also, EVERYONE (you included) is capable of more than you imagine. You can’t know anyone absolutely, and you can never predict their responses and behaviour. Come to think of it, can you even predict your own? You may expect a certain response, but you may get something totally different. Shocking, though it may seem, it is still the same person. And they are no worse off for it.

These two things, though naive, taught me a great lesson by occurring together.

Take it at face value, and move on. Be professional, be cordial, be polite. Maintain the relationship. Everyone holds the right to decide how much to invest, and when to pull back in interpersonal relations. Chances are, that you will continue as before after it. I wont say ‘forgive’, as I don’t see anyone at  mistake here, but definitely FORGET. Works like a charm.

 

Have you?

Have you ever had a success in your life? Have you tasted the elusive delicacy? Have you ever marvelled at the end result of your work? Have you ever wondered how you managed to produce such a beautiful result? Have you ever been amazed by how good you were at it? At how you could do things you never even imagined? Have you ever felt like you could do anything in the whole world? Have you ever been confident that you can will your way to work?

Do you feel such more often than not? And did you make a living out of it?

If you could answer YES to any two or more of the above questions, you must be doing something right.

You must be, if you’re not already there, on your way to a good an happy life.

Isn’t that what we all want?
