Droplets and You

I was waiting for the sun to set,

I could see many birds on the way to their nest,

I could see the sky taking rest,

Will it rain, I asked, as a test.

I started feeling rain droplets to the best,

They were too close and with full zest,

They asked, are you sure you want our best,

I smiled, and they said, you are the best.

The drops made their way all over to test,

To remind me whether I still want their best,

I stood still with my trust on myself as the best,

They laughed and said you are the best.

What do you seek?

During childhood, we used to hear out many stories related to what our future love should be. We used to imagine how our soulmate should look like (for girls, tall and handsome etc. and for boys, sweet and good looking doll), s/he should do this and that for me, maybe getting the star or moon, or should be like a fairy or a king, and many other beautiful things that can be imagined. It’s so beautiful to rethink all of the set parameters or checks we had since childhood.

As we grow up, we shift to different set of checks and try to modify our type of love with the ‘type of soulmate’ we want. We get more clarity that we shouldn’t depend on physical characteristics of a person whether s/he is tall or short, fat or slim, we shouldn’t see the colour trait of a person, we shouldn’t go with a biased opinion of a ‘yes’ to a complete person with all checks as described above and many other things. In a nutshell, we get more clear on our thoughts and more clear of what we want from the other person. In between all of these, if we don’t get our ‘set parameter’ checked person for the time being, and get only a person who actually loves you but doesn’t fall in your checklist of ‘tall/handsome, sweet doll/cute , a king/queen etc.’, we shouldn’t break his or her 💓, we shouldn’t play with his/her emotions, we shouldn’t make false promises, we shouldn’t cheat/betray on him/her. By, just being selfish and getting away from the person who gave his/her heart to you just by giving reasons which can’t be relished (because, now you have someone else close to your checklist) and doesn’t make you a ‘good’ person with a ‘good’ soul. It directly means, tomorrow, if you see another one more close to your checklist, you’ll again switch. Do you think you can be called as ‘person’ even? Maybe, No. So what do you seek? Maybe a programmable machine who behaves the way you want, as you have no love/emotions/respect for the other person. It’s good to be alone sometimes rather than being with a fake person. Everyone has a heart and a beautiful soul, we should respect that!

We should always clear it out what we want from the person who is in our life until it’s very late (as the other person already built up high emotions and love for you). In my opinion and thoughts, we should always see the soul of a person, the love, his/her behaviour towards you and others, who has emotions filled as that would lead to emotional learning between two of us, more respect, kindness and truthfulness and other things comes secondary. Period. This would not only get you a person who actually loves you with all his/her soul but would also teach you several beautiful dimensions of life and its beauty which would be led by both.

The ‘Us’ Connect

It was a rainy day when I first saw you,

I was wishing for a day just to receive a message from you,

With no connects just to hoping the best,

There was a lucky day when my wish came true and I was at rest.

Holding the wish, I prayed to God,

Never make us fall apart was my chord,

Happy with the chord we both went to the lord,

Who knew that would become a difficult sword.

With every star, again I made a wish,

To cure everything with a 💓 kiss,

We are sure we would fill this jar again with love,

Tells her elephant with a smiling tusk.

She holds her favorite teddy brown and white,

And, wants us to be bonded tight

We oath that we would never let this happen,

With open arms, I, want to make ‘us’ happen.

The warmth

They’d met after a long time, this season, they both were enjoying the weather, the cosiness, maybe they wanted to see each other right next or curling around. They actually missed each other a lot; the warmth and the affection came along. They thought it’s only a few months they are together and now they started feeling each other in the eyes, 💓 and soul. They started wanting each other more and wished for the feeling to not end anyways.

Early morning, without a message he woke up next to her and she made a smile and said “Good morning”, yes, a good morning, was that enough? Yes, for me it was. But, again she made an attempt to curl him up with no space and allowed no light frame to enter. So, was it all dark? Yes. He loved the warmth and felt her next to him. Is this love? You can say so. They both wanted to see each other every moment so well that they actually made an attempt to stick, just like a glue-stick, but here it was more like a caring-stick.

They came more close and discussed everything openly and also felt the warmth when they were low. He was all open to her and she was all ears. There was an affection, love, deep bond and emotional flow between them and they loved every bit of it. Hence, for the person who is your breath you should get yourself completely immersed in the pool of love with him/her and feel the emotions, be more connected, fight for your him/her, just don’t ‘let it go’ for your happiness or for both, it’s completely fine to think sometimes to let go, but tell me do really want to ‘let go’, don’t get convinced by anyone or your mind, there would be many thoughts of letting him/her go because of this or that and end up diverting our mind with other things; which is weak and temporary, but at the end it only matters that ‘s/he is the one for you’, whom you loved at the first place accepting all the odds/negatives/positives. The love could be your blanket in chilly winters when you don’t want to let it go or maybe your love. You might feel the chill in your body or a chill in your love. Don’t let it go!

Now, did I tell you, that, this story happened to be my last night’s dream or a reality or love with my own blanket in the winter season? 🙂

Flowing thoughts

I started my morning with a sip of tea and fresh air amidst the woods, greeting the birds, meeting fellow morning walkers, dogs and cats. There is a sense of belonging when you are immersed with such a surrounding and flow of thoughts.

I saw one of the dogs following me throughout my run. I sat down asking him whether he wanted something but he was constantly looking at me with some hope or sense of care and love. It reminded me of ourselves when we think of a very special person for holding hands and sitting near the cliff discussing everything and then we are left alone. Somewhere or the other it’s lost. Sometimes, being with a person who needs you the most, dreamt of you the most for many things, promised you everything, gave his/her heart in your hands, is the person you should be with irrespective of whatever things happen, at the end of the day s/he is ‘yours’ and only ‘yours’. In general, for a better and fruitful friendship/love/relationship in every phase, as seen, experienced and also heard from others, the five repeating words, loyalty, non-cheating, not being altruistic, staying truthful and non-betraying behaviour comes everytime and is truly accepted and loved in the sense of soul satisfaction but if you find/think any of these ‘not’ existing or any opposites then talk about it; if you get a negation, just let them think themselves these questions, maybe in seclusion, that, are they actually good as a ‘person’ first to do all of these, just for a mere change/altruism/some modern behaviour? Does the inner soul with which they once loved, maybe, gives them freedom to treat the emotions of other person like this?

Once a behaviour of leaving others like this, is always a behaviour. If one ever loved/considered you as a life partner at the first place, they wouldn’t consider you as a stranger at the first place. Did they ever loved you? Believe in yourself and pour more and more positive thoughts in you. You are very good and a true person. There are very less persons out here in the planet who actually put up so much for you, don’t ever leave ’em because of any reasons. Remember, if you truly care/love a person, their mistakes never ever change your feelings, it’s only the mind which gets angry and forces decisions but your heart always care and loves. Discuss and discuss for a solution. Things can be worked out well and with happiness and we should forgive.

Similarly, ‘we’ in the nature should think more and more about protecting the trees and animals they also have feelings and emotions. We should keep our environment clean so as to pour and get fresh air, clean surroundings, more happiness to everyone.

I believe, each one of us should go for a morning walk to keep himself or herself fit and active as getting up early morning not only triggers your neural net inside your mind for the rest of the day but also fills you with immense energy to carry out other tasks wearing a warm smile. These morning air not only fills you with positivity but also nourishes your cells throughout.

Being with someone

If someone truly wants to be with you, breathe with you, they will do anything in their power to be with you. There will be no games. There will be no words with hidden meanings. No endless nights, where you just see the messages and letters again and again to join your thought process for a positive bent. You won’t have to figure all this out as their words and actions would convey their behaviour and love for you.

You fight, you cry and you hope for the person to be with you because you loved this person to the moon and back. But, if the person truly loves you, s/he will ignore the worldly statements, try not to say, try not to hurt you everytime with mixed feelings, emotions and other things. S/he would stick only to the soul – filled with pure love and nothing else.

We should never let go a person with whom you counted your life together as ‘us’. You should never ever leave his/her hand; Afterall, it’s all love and deep compassion with which you connected. If someone wants to be with you, truly with all 💓, madly and emotionally, they will be with you.

All beautiful relationships do not exactly depend on how well we know each other, but it depends on how well we manage the misunderstanding and unite again. Preserve and don’t let go your loved ones. Life is short.

Take care. Keep smiling 🙂

Kitna asaan tha…

Kitna asaaan tha Bhool jaana uske liye,
Mere liye toh sab kuch wahi hai,
Ishq jiski ibaadat dono he karte the ,
Uske liye wo ishq he na raha ,
Milta bhi kya usse ki; uske paas waqt he na raha.

Unn likhe panno ki gehraai se kaise muh mod du,
Par fir uski zubaan ko kaise peeche chor du,
Wo keh kar toh aayi thi na jaane ko kabhi,
Lekin wo jaa baithi na aane ko kabhi.

Beshumaar ishq barasta hai ab bhi uski likhai mein,
Kaise maan lu ki ateet ki gehrai mein
Jo hai nahi, usse wo dikha
Jo dekhna tha wo usse dikha nahi kabhi…

Kitna asaan tha…

A dreamy world

She used to live far away from him but still they made a connect and wore the same thread of love. Universe also called them as birds who would never fall apart. He used to listen to her always and vice versa but there were some fights in between but it was understood that after the fight they would lie close to each other and laugh. This was love. Pure love.

They used to smile, cry, love, tease, discuss everything together but all these things left as a part of cyclone which was not in his or her radar, maybe it was the fight or something else, yes, something else, that could have been cleared but it didn’t. In reality, may whatever quotes or stories we get influenced to, we can’t leave the person whom we love. We can’t! If one decides to stay, with only one reason, s/he will stay till the last breath because s/he loves and accepts the negatives of their partners and knows s/he isn’t like that as they fell in love with the soul not these on-the-go negatives. He was all ears to listen and make her sleep again in his arms with her favourite story book.

Every memory of her shakes him like she is there saying ‘love’ but if you actually feel it was only ‘please don’t connect’- in a harsh tone. He is clueless. He felt left out. He thought people fight and they get more closer and promise to not deliver the same again, else they’ll go through sit-ups. He was unable to figure; what happened! There was a loss. He couldn’t bear but was finding ways to figure out a medicine which would tear away the emotional bindings and deep love. He searched all the chemist shops and returned empty handed.

She thinks of him everytime but is afraid to tell or maybe there is some other reason. She used to start her day with his voice wrapped in a blanket of love and curled around. He was all ears to listen but she wasn’t ready and gave him a red ribbon. He accepted and still colored that ribbon to green and presented her and she handed over a black one. He thinks they were playing some colour game. He colored every red ribbon to green but he thinks she wasn’t ready. He accepted.

He didn’t want to let her go like that; she didn’t wanted that either. She always looks good in yellow and he still wears her favourite yellow. They dreamt a lot and in real too. They enjoyed the air between them. Did he tell you that she is a beautiful bird who leaves a lasting impression, maybe? She would feel him curled around her and his voice for the rest of her life. A belief and faith.

Everything in a relationship has a cure provided we are ready to accept and let go the negatives.

He still thinks…

Multiple Childhood

Children have represented the future prolongation of our societies and therefore have been taught to replicate the material and intellectual conditions that are considered to survival. How we think and understand children matters inordinately because our views and theories affect how societies engage with children in day to day practice.

Viewpoint:

Yet, what is childhood?

The dictionary definition of Webster continues by “the early period in development of something”. It can be argued that childhood is that stage in life that is accessed by adults retrospectively, a beautiful experience that can be tapped through memory which is then – conceptualized by several layers viz. parents, social groups, kin-groups…

Several sociologists of childhood have affirmed that childhood is a structural category alongside with others, may be social class, ethnic origin, gender etc. To what extent have we considered the interaction of those different variables and their influence on how childhood is represented in different cultures and contexts?

Multiple childhood on other hand refers to different kind of childhood seen through various parameters as:

  1. Differently able children
  2. Economically backward children
  3. Survival of child abuse
  4. Child labor

Also, research into child poverty have provided a change in our understandings as we begin to listen more to the views of children. The research has been more quantitative giving us figures (based on analysis of statistics). For instance, we have been concerned with the number of children living below poverty lines. So acknowledging diverse childhood is essential.

Inference:

Even the definition of “who” is a “child” can produce major differences of opinions or perceptions. Some of the problems that arise as methodological or psychological turn around the puzzle of children’s subjectivity. Multiple childhood is still indeterminate for teachers and educators. More and more practical and conceptualized approach for better understanding has to be lifted up. Further, the various cultural and intellectual perspectives on the nature of childhood need to be addressed as well, in order to engage with the questions: “what” is childhood, “who” is a child?
