Chaos is the way of the world today,

Terrorism and violence spreading through the universe,

Invoking silent prayers from my heart,

To spread peace, calm  and harmony through every vein of Mother Earth.

Daily Prompt: Relax

via Daily Prompt: Relax

Let it go, Let it go,

Can’t hold it back anymore..

so goes the lyrics of the famous song from the movie ‘Frozen’

Only when we

Let go of control,

Let go of ego,

Let go of being right,

Let go of holding on,

Let go of anger,

Let go of the maddening rush,

Only then can we truly relax.

And when we truly relax,

We are open,

Open to the bounties and

Open to the blessings

In store for us !!

So just let it go….

and relax all the more.


There’s a lot happening,

The traffic woes are increasing,

The sounds are deafening,

The fast pace of life is maddening..

There’s a lot happening..


The quality of life is diminishing

The quality of relationships is disparaging,

The ‘to do ‘ lists are just bugging,

The  neighbor is so irritating,

Gosh, there’s a lot happening..


Friends, have you tried just breathing ?,

Friends, have you tried just  relaxing ?,

Friends, have you tried just living life?


Yes, dear friends, just take a deep breath in,

Say a big hello to the oxygen, who lives just next door,

Exhale every iota of breath to say goodbye to the carbon dioxide.


My dear friends, take a moment to meet your new friends,

The oxygen, the trees, the nature, the environment and the people,

Say goodbye to the  little satans,

The maddening rush, the technological gadgets, the to do lists, & the fast pace of life.


My dear friends,

Relax a while,

Smile a while,

It’s one life – Live it, Enjoy it.

See Life, Feel Life, Live Life !!


One of the dictionary meanings of folly is lack of good sense or foolishness.

The one person, who comes to my mind who is full of folly is our good old friend and comic character Suppandi, who has tickled us to laughter right from our childhood till date, for over three decades. He’s been the favorite of children and adults alike. I’m sure many of you will remember him and have a smile on your face too, as you read this.

Daily Prompt: Conundrum

via Daily Prompt: Conundrum

The very purpose of life is a conundrum. The family we are born into, the people we meet, the relationships, the flow of events, the education, the vocation, the spiritual practices, the needs, the attachments, oh and the list can go on…. and on…and on.

Sometimes, makes me wonder, hey, for what? What is the purpose of all of this that we are running behind?  And I am still wondering….


You feel something, you are touched by something, you experience something and you become aware of something. Our life is about different feelings, experiences, sensations, opinions and impressions.Feelings go on to make you the person you are, in a way, it shapes your life. I just felt these feelings flowing through me, a mix of positive and negative, which is required in life. It’s not exhaustive; you might have felt some of these. Do let me know what you FEEL.

Feel the laughter,

Feel the tear,

Feel the joy and

Feel the fear.



Feel the pain,

Feel the emotion,

Feel the love and

Feel the compassion.


Feel the anger,

Feel the calmness,

Feel the loneliness,

Feel the caress and togetherness.


Feel the meditation,

Feel the silence,

Feel the awakening and

Feel the bliss.


Feel the breath,

Feel the energy,

Feel the vibrations and

Feel the synergy.


Feel the pulse,

Feel the heartbeat,

Feel the rhythm of your body and

Feel the dance of happy feet.


Feel the music,

Feel the song,

Feel the beats of the drums and

Feel the melody from the gong.


Feel the breeze,

Feel the sun and the rain,

Feel the fury and pain,

When Mother Nature complains.


Feel the positive,

Feel the negative,

Feel the combination of both to

Feel the creator and His creation.

My Impromptu Blog

Often, at meetings, schools, workplace, programs, debates etc. we are called to speak on a topic at a moment’s notice. No preparation, not much time to think, and there we are, amidst a hundred pair of eyes, waiting to hear and judge us. I’m sure, many of you reading this blog, would’ve been through this.

I thought of writing this blog on similar lines. No preparation, no correction, no editing etc. directly, my thoughts on your screen, hence the title – Impromptu Blog!!


It’s quite a task, to write without thinking through.  My brain is raking out thoughts to be put forth.  As I write this, I realize, how tough it is for us humans to do something different, something which is not planned, something for which we have not prepared, something just dropping into our arms, which requires our immediate attention.

There is only one situation though, where I feel we, as human beings, do not require much preparation to take an immediate action – when we are angry. Without any problem, without thinking, without waiting for things to settle down – we speak impromptu, and we manage to invoke all our hidden emotions and expressions, to bring out our ghastly image. And it’s a fact that, if someone shows us a mirror during the anger monster’s attack on us, we would be very unpleasant and would not like what we see. I wonder how little ones around us, put up with us .


An old adage goes “Think before you speak”. When we do so, we probably do all the cut, edit, copy & paste at the backyard of our brain, which helps us in controlling our impromptu devastating words of communication and bringing about the beautiful side in us, much to the happiness and relief of our close ones.

Fragile, handle with care..


This side up, handle with care.We often see this marked on boxes with fragile items.

Ladies do not want too many glass jars in the kitchen for the fear of breaking the jars, and cleaning up after the job is done.

I often think to myself, glass jars broken can be thrown, replaced, what about a breaking heart of a little child, or a fellow being?

I wonder, would our interaction with other fellow beings been different, had our creator marked us with fragile, handle with care!!!

When we step into this world, our mind – our thoughts are programmed by our creator to be pure, innocent and fragile. It is to be handled with care, and it is, till such time when we start to understand the ways of the people around us, and the ways of the world. We shape the fragile child’s innocence to the hard ways of the world. The raw material, the clean slate of the child starts getting filled up. It is put through the mill. It goes through the grind, the cycles of emotions, the ups and downs of becoming a finished product – getting ready to face the world, preparing to take on any sort of rough and crude handling, for the label of fragile, handle with care is missing …

Not to say, that these emotions, these processes that the child begins to go through could be done with, but,

If only, we could be a little more gentle, loving and caring with our children,

If only, we could treat every human being with compassion …

If only, we could treat every living being on the earth with love and affection..

If only, we could embrace mother earth with peace and prosperity…

If only, we could work with a SMILE..

If only, we could have the tags or labels of FRAGILE, HANDLE WITH CARE…

The world would have been a much better place to live in!!

Points To Ponder



Scene 1

My mobile phone just fell into a bucket of water, son, came an aged dad, and handed over the wet phone to his son. Never mind dad, let me see, what I can do to fix it says the son…

Imagine, if the same act was done by your child and the child comes to you and says, sorry daddy, I was playing with the phone and it just slipped and fell into the bucket of water.

How would you react??

Scene 2

Fathom this, a family consisting of grandparents, parents and kids, having dinner…. The younger child 8 years old, is done with dinner, the residual food left in the Childs plate is watery….Grandpa says, leave your plate on the table, I will stash away your plate in the sink, else you’ll end up spilling the leftover food on the way to the wash area.

As the parent of the child, how do you react??

Scene 3

A Mom and daughter on the way to the bus stop…early morning, cool breeze blowing, birds chirping, the duo, enjoying each other’s company, chatting, cuddling, laughing, everything picture perfect. On reaching the stop and waiting for the school bus to arrive, the daughter gets busy chatting with her friend, Mom takes to her friend – the mobile phone. Both are engrossed talking and chatting, one face to face and the other with her “mobile” friend(s). The school bus arrives, picks up the other kids waiting and leaves. The mom and daughter, being busy are blissfully unaware, of the arrival of the bus. The daughter has missed the bus.

Being in the moms place, how would you react??

Scene 4

Your child is walking, in the park, on the street, or in the stairway, along with you. The child is lost in his/her own dream world, thinking of the latest car, Ben 10 or engrossed in the world of fairies and princesses. And lo, he/she missed seeing a puddle of water or missed a step and had a fall. His/her dream shattered, bruised and in pain, starts howling and crying.

How would you react??

I’m sure, we as parents have faced many such scenes in our journey of parenting, which is quite challenging. Each parent is created differently and is unique in his or her own way, and will react differently in similar situations.

Why are we afraid to allow our children to make mistakes, and in the process, allow them to learn & grow? It’s not because they would fall and be in pain, it’s because, we as parents have to bear the brunt of the consequences of their actions.

If the answers to any of the scenarios above, is maybe, I would have, then it’s time to get some remedial measures in place.
While, it’s next to impossible to have a set rule to parenting or to deal with a situation, the above situations are just pointers to where we as parents could possibly learn to be “well behaved” or learn not to react.



My Biggest Gift.

The BIG Gift, from my little one…

This happened a couple of years ago..

I had come across a beautiful message during my visit to a social networking site. The message read : “ To my daughters” – I love you a lot. If you need me, call me. I don’t care,  if I’m sleeping, if I am having my own problems, or if I’m angry at you. If you need me and need to talk to me, I’ll always be there for you, no matter how big or small your problem is, “I’LL BE THERE”. This message, echoed my thoughts,  was beautifully written and I loved it.

I  figured out, it was a very apt message for me and my daughters. So, I printed the message and pinned it on the soft board in their room. They read it off and on, and it was a reminder for me to be there for my kids, every day and enjoy every moment with them regardless of a busy schedule, and of course creating a strong bond with my daughters.

The soft board in their room, soon had a lot more visitors, from the artistes in them to the poets in them, grabbing the attention of all those who visited their room. My message, soon got hidden behind the drawings, poetries and articles, pushing each other for some rightful space on the soft board. I had no choice, but to clean up the board, put a few of their works in a folder. My message to my daughters was one such entrant into the folder. I was quite sure, that we have developed a good bonding and do not require messages to remind us – “we are there for each other”.

A few weeks down the line, as I was busy engrossed in my work, my little daughter, all of 6 then, came and asked me, mama, where’s that message – “to my daughters”I want it. In the middle of my work, I just picked it up from the folder, gave it to her and got busy with my work again. After a while, she walks in with two tiny sheets of paper and hands it over to me. As I read it, my eyes just welled up with tears of joy.

The two tiny sheets read..

To my parents..

Dear parents, I love you a lot. If you need me, call me. I don’t care if I’m sleeping, if I’m having my own problems or if I’m angry at you. If you need me and if you need to talk to me, I’ll always be there for you, no matter how big or how small your problem is

I’LL BE THERE !! I love you mom and dad !

I was touched somewhere deep down in my heart, this little gesture from my little girl is my BIGGEST gift ever !!
