Life… What is life?

Every single day we are living it.
Yet, no one has a perfect answer to this simple question.
Neither do I, I guess.
Even though every single day we put efforts in living.
We wake up first thing in the morning.
We all follow some of the rituals afterwards.
We eat. We take bath. We go to schools to learn. We work hard to earn dimes for supporting ourselves and our families. We go out to enjoy with friends and family. We care. We love. We hate. We feel jealous of some people. We admire some people. We gets tired. We keeps track of the world around us. We colonize. We build relations. We marry. We reproduce. We have faith. We follow different deities. We grow old. We advice people. We have our remorses. We have our own sorrows. We have our own happy moments to remember for eternity. We seek forgiveness. We forgive. We lie. We tells truth. We stands up for someone. We have someone to stand up for us. We break someones heart. We gets our heart broken. We commit mistakes. We win sometimes. We lose sometimes. We celebrate. And then we die.
We do millions and trillions and bazillions of a number of other things, which happen to be part of living. Each of these things or most of these things together makes a life.
Yet we say that ‘We merely survive’.
And somehow, we have convinced ourselves into believing something horrible.
Often we hear people saying, “Oh man! All this is crap. This is what everyone’s doing. Let’s not get trapped into it. Damn sure, there is some higher purpose for life. And we must seek our purpose in life before we die. Only then we shall be blissfully happy. Let’s not fall prey to all these mundanities of life.”
We have been fooled into believing that there is some higher dimension in life and we all need to find it and go there to experience the blissful happiness.
Some place where all our pains will be taken away and we shall be relieved from everything. Where we will be a ‘free soul’.
Sure you can believe in all this crap. And keep finding your so called higher dimension to be blissful.
Or… You can be happy right now. In this very moment.
Or you can be sad. Or you can feel pain, or pleasure, or guilt, or satisfaction.. or a number of other feelings and emotions.
Why on earth, have we been programmed to believe that we have to be happy, always. That we shouldn’t be sad or angry, or in pain.
Is that really a crime to feel other emotions, other than happiness?
And if it is so. Then why on earth do these emotions and feelings even exist?
There might be some higher purpose… I don’t know.
But, what I know for certain is that,
Life is going on for me.
Right here.
Right now.
In every single moment.
In the moments of pain.
In the moments of pleasure.
I am living when I am sad. I am living when I am happy. I am living when I am with my loved ones. I am living when I am alone. I am living when I feel hatred. I am living when I am in love. And I am living in every single moment.
Each and every one of these emotions, each and every one of these moments defines my life. They make me who am I. They make me feel alive. And for me… This is life.
Goodness only knows, if there is any higher purpose in life for me.
Goodness only can tell, if I be seeking it ever in my life.
But, for seeking that, so called, higher purpose, I can not make excuses, and skip living.
As a saying goes in Hindi- “Aag ka dariya hai.. Aur doob ke jaana hai…”
In order to seek life… One shall not skip living.
P.S. – Thoughts are welcome 🙂

An Entire New World..

magic-bookIndeed… Magic is as real as it is believed.

The other day when I was on my desk..

A couple of white sheets lay upon the table. Petrified.. 

I took out my wand (pen)… swayed it over the dead sheets of paper.

Some magical words weaved in mysterious spells, came out through it…

Hitting straight onto the sheets of papers.

A blinding flash of light all around my eyes…                                                        

And I fell asleep for some time (perhaps eternity)…

When I woke up… I was on a different planet….

Some far away island. And people… Never seen before….

Goodness only can tell!

I gave those dead sheets of paper an entirely new life…

I have created a new world….

Wisdom : The Wrong Wine…

There’s an age old mystery,

                  Sounds like a nursery rhyme..

That tells a seeker,

                  The secret way to the divine..

He whose vessel, overfull with the wisdom,

                  Yet in thirst, he desperately whines..

An unfortunate fellow unto him,

                  The light of divinity shall never shine..

For driven in lust and vanity has he, indeed,

                   Filled his vessel with the wrong wine..


The Warriors of Dark…


They came in night…
The wind began to blew..
Kites in the dark, and faster they flew..
Lighter was the flight, with horror in the night..
Wrapped in black, covered was their face…
Devil in the eyes, Boiling in wrath…

They came in night…
When moon in horror, went out of sight.
But stars burned brighter, to hail their Might…
The warriors of dark…were born to fight..
As for the defeat…
no further, than Years of Light…

When world of wiser, die with the light…
The Warriors of Dark, then rise..
And do justice, to the devil of night…


I looked up at the sky…
There were a lot of stars that night in the sky, and, they were shining more brightly than any other day.
It may not be true, but, at least it appeared to me,  that… “this night is special in some way”.Night was very dark, with the sky  colored with shining dark blue in symphony… and, stars were shining brilliantly.Perhaps they were more happy that day, and, were expressing their feelings with the intensity of their light.

That night… it appeared, as if, they were celebrating the arrival of
some of their dear loved one… And that’s why they were partying hard, to welcome their new friend… who, from that moment on, will be one of them… And will shine, as brightly as his friends, up in the sky.

From that moment on, he too was a star.

They say that… people who die on earth… goes up to the heaven… and become a ‘Star’…
and then they shine- “as brilliantly as they are”, for  ever and for eternity…

That night… I looked up at the sky…eyes filled with water…

Stars were shining more brilliantly, with all their intensity…
to welcome their new friend.

I searched through the sky… hoping to find someone.

There… quite afar… “I saw a star”… surrounded with a lot of stars from all around.

Each was shining brilliantly.
But, in the middle of all… there he was, “who outshone every one that day…”

I looked up directly to him… seeing that, “he was now with his new friends”…
and, “he was happy”…

A twitch of vanity crossed my heart… and I could feel the pain within..
but, I too felt happy for him…

I knew that he was looking at me…  and, passing me a smile…
I could once again feel his love…

A tear drop rolled down my eye…
Looking directly to him… I smiled back…
and said – “I love you too…”
