The Bliss!!

I roved and roved in search of bliss,
But i never thought, it would be such a tussle!

I wondered and pondered each day long,
What is this bliss, that is so easy to miss, but never to kiss?
But all I found was only the mist!

I drifted along, to clear the mist,
But again was caught in a mysterious hassle!

Baffled and dejected, I blurted out,
But, I din't want to turn backward,
and, there was no road onward! 

I was caught in the mist, so dark and cold,
My firelike-desire had grown so old!

I thought i would fight, till i die,
But there was no energy left, even for a cry!

Still, I moved, on and on, in the dark mist,
And was finally, about to fall,
When a cupid appeared and held my hand,
Never to leave, forever and forever !

Now, I knew, my search was over,
The bliss was found and I had reached "there", 
And finally, the maundering was over!

-------{This poem is dedicated to all the wonderful people in my life, who have helped me in finding  what I call "The Bliss" of my life. I believe, every person in this world is in need and search of this bliss!!}

जीवन चक्र

काही क्षण येतात जीवनात, का आले म्हणून घाबरायचं नसतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं..
काही व्यक्ति भेटतात जीवनात, का भेटल्या म्हणून विचारायचं नसतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं..
काही धागे गुन्ततात हृदयात, का गुंतलात म्हणून तोडायचं नसतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं..
काही भोग भोगायचे असतात, भोगायचे, म्हणून रडायचं नसतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं..
काही प्रसंग येतात जीवनात, जीवनच पालटून टाकतात, का पालटले म्हणून
रागवायचं नसतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं..
काही व्यक्ति भेटतात, न विचारता जातात, का गेला म्हणून विचारायचं नसतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं..
जीवन म्हणजे काचेचं भांडं असतं, तडा लागू नये म्हणून जपायचं असतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं..
जीवन हे सुख-दुःखानें भरलेल्या जीवन चक्रासारखं असतं, कधी कमी, कधी वाढतं,
असं का म्हणून सोडायचं नसतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं..
कधी दोन्हीही संपून जाते, जीवन चक्र येथेच थाम्बते, का थांबले म्हणून
विचारायचं नसतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं,
जीवन हे असच असतं....

चाहुल लगता त्याची, मन मोहरून जाते,
कळत-नकळतच वारयावर, एक गंध घेउन येते..
वेड्या मनाला माहित आहे की तो येणार आहे माज़्या भेटीसाठी,
पण तरीही हुरहुर लगते, तो भेटणार कधी?
मनाचा मोर नाचू लागला, प्रेमाचा चाहुलीने,
वाट पाहू लागले में त्याची, चातकाचा आतुरतेने॥
मित्र म्हणुनच आला तो आयुष्यात,
पण कळत-नकळतच शिरला ह्रुदयात..
आणि मग... धुंद ज़ालें शब्द सारे, धुंद ज़ाल्या भावना,
प्रेमरूपी सागराची में करू लागले अर्चना..

One day while working on my computer, some weird thoughts started popping up my mind.May be it was the result of the idleness that day as I had finished my work far before the deadline. So my idle mind started wandering and around and started relating the things in my computer lab with human life. I was wondering how the keyboard function 'Ctrl+Z' works which easily returns you back whatever you just deleted.Computer brain and memory is simply wonderful.What if same was the case with our human life? It would be soooo amazing!!We could just Ctrl+Z all the incidents one by one easily and live those moments again and go back into time.
Human brain is superior than a computer, but the greatest drawback is it doesnt have a keyboard. :) (Weirdest thought ever).Only the CPU goes on and on and we cannot stop it until we die.
If our brain had a "keyboard" we could simply shift+delete all the bad memories and incidents and ctrl+Z all the happy and good incidents. Mankind would be more happy then.The most important thing a man wants in life is happiness and satisfaction.It would be so wonderful if he could get it just by pressing two buttons :) But alas, its not that simple.Human life and happiness is much more complex.So, the only way left is to live every moment to the fullest.Life is like a huge treasure of money. We can spend every penny the way we want to.But the only drawback is, once the treasure is over it can never be refilled.So every penney should be spent carefully.
My thoughts were suddenly interrupted by my manager who had come to ask the status of my work and I was again engrossed in using the keyboard..

The Inception

July 2nd 2010 was a wonderful day in my life because, I got an opportunity to visit the world famous Nigara Falls. I believe, change is the most constant thing in life.Change always gives me a new inception when i start dawdling in my own pool of thoughts.I got one more by visiting Nigara Falls.It was a thrilling experience to visit the place and I witnessed the ecstasy of visiting heaven on the earth..Simply awesome!! This experience will remain evergreen in my mind screen.The roar of water deafens your ears. Just a glance of the falls and it keeps you in thrall to the miraculous scenes of its waters.
It was the moment which made me realise there is some mysterious natural power beyond man's wisdom which is very difficult to comprehend and control.Thoughts started flashing on my mind one after the other and shaped up a poem which i would like to dedicate to this wonderful creation of God:

I had always heard, "There is heaven on earth",
How authentic it was, I found only after exploring the mirth.
This artistry of nature, beauty interspersed all over,
The gushing water, the roaring fall, the mesmerising mist,
is what I wish to share.

Looking at the blue and white snowy, foamy flow,
The golden sunshine and the ravishing rainbow,
I was so drowned in the whole enchant,
that i felt all my wishes are at grant.

The 'maid of the mist' lets u meet this paradise face to face,
the gusts, the downdrafts and the waters at pace,
The journey of the falls leaves you amazed,
with the beauty, enigma and splendid grace.

The bashing of water, though fierceful and harsh,
but as it descends, the fierceness ends.
Its resplendence is endless,
down as it reaches, it flows with an angel's calmness.

The rushing waters sing a moral, without saying a word
Whatever pinnacles of glory you reach, and laurels you receive,
do not lose your humility and morality.

In future whenever I will hear the word "waterfalls" my mind will replay this whole eye-enriching experience.

The Musk Of Memories...

Oh, how cruelly sweet are the echoes that start,
When Memory plays an old tune on the heart!
Then indeed, the lights are rekindled,
but who can be sure that they can never be dwindled?
Friends depart, but remain in the memory caverns,
So pure and so deep, noone knows they take you to which tavern.
A year impairs, a luster obliterates,
But memories in the heart can never evaporate.
All memories dont have a fragrance of musk,
Some are rusk and some are brusk.
My poem is but, a thought, a mere memory caught at play,
From hand onto paper, bleeding thoughts at stay.

Thodasa roomani ho jaye!!!

We lead our lives interspersed with incidents, which inspire, influence and finally motivate us to carry on living. Hope of better things define and stimulate our actions. Thus it is extremely difficult for me to imagine our life without hope, without anything to look forward to. However when we look around we can see people (far and near) leading lives without any anticipation or hope. The reality of their situation forces us to understand the importance of hope, which has this uncanny ability to refresh parched and arid human minds.
To har insan ko is, 'thodese' roomani ki 'bahot' jyada jaroorat hoti hai... which in english is called 'A little faith' which keeps us going. It might seem a bit too philosophical, but I dont want you to be bored by giving doses of philosphy, instead I will tell u a real life story of a girl, whose life changed drastically due to a change in her perception towards life.
This story is about how a few people at various stages in her life whom she calls 'Angels of my life' transformed her life completely by teaching her the magic of 'believing' or 'keeping faith'.
Because, we all know 'We believe what we percieve' and which ultimately leads to our success or failure.So, here it goes...

There was a girl who lived with her parents, granny and an elder sister in a city.They were a happy family.

Phase I :Childhood :

At the initial stage of her kindergarten and then later school education,she stayed with her parents.They were a happy family and loved each other a lot.
She led a life of the most successful student, always a topper and never faced any difficulties.But then suddenly after her schooling, her father decided to keep her away from them for providing her a better quality higher education. So, at the age of 15, she had to stay away from her parents.Her elder sister had already left the house two yrs before when she was 15 and now she was going to stay with her elder sister.

Phase II : Adolescence:

Now, in this phase of her life started the real challenge. Throughout her schooling, she had been a topper, so she had the confidence that she would top in her higher studies as well. But when she saw her first semester results at higher education,she was petrified. She was no where amongst the toppers, instead had got very average marks.
This was her first failure ever, due to which she was completly depressed.And now even her mom was not there physically with her to help her.But then
she couldn’t find the reason for it bcoz I had worked really hard even for this exam. Then what was the factor responsible for her failure?? The only reason which made the whole difference was she was away from her mom. Then she realised, it was her mom who always motivated her and taught her to believe that she only would be the topper. Along with hardwork, this motivation and belief her mom sowed in her,made a hell lot of difference.
But unfortunately, she couldn’t bring her mom to the place she lived. But fortunately, she had her elder sister who also stayed with her. She took the place of her mom in this next phase of her life. She motivated her little sis and helped her overcome her emotional dependencies and other limitations.She helped her to convert her failures into success and improved her results to an extent that her little sis could get admission amongst top 10 engineering colleges.From here, her perception towards life began to change and she started understanding her own limitations and strengths.Her perception towards life started changing a bit.But then again, a huge failure was awaiting her...

Phase III :
Teenage+ Adulthood:

Now the start of next phase was even more worst, her family members (except mom and sis) and relatives dint have a confidence that she had the ability to complete engineering successfully. So, they tried admitting her in a course she never liked by advising her mom to do so.If her mom and sis dint support her, she wouldnt have been an engineer today.
But then, fortunately she got an admission call from one of top 10 colleges of the University.Now was the biggest challenge to prove to my relatives that she could do it.But again as luck would have it or whatever reasons, she faced so many failures in her subjects that her relatives got a chance to say 'We knew you can never become an Engineer'. This sentence totally grappled her confidence away.
Lack of confidence and belief was the greatest barrier to her success.
Then again, god sent her an angel, she says, who guided her on the right track. He saved her from falling down in the deep valley of disbelief .He helped her build up her confidence again and helped her grow.This angel was none other than her best friend, her brother, my well-wisher and now her brother-in-law . He tranformed her perception towards life even more in a more positive way.He taught her self-analysis, helped her to realize her strengths and make them more stronger and helped her overcome weaknesses and convert them into strengths.

These three angels of her life: Her Mother, Sister and Brother-in-law have helped her build up so much of inner strength that she can now look at her failures in a completely different way.They have inculcated in her the magic of believing so deep that she now faces her failures with this "thodasa roomani."
