Sometimes an agonising boredom stings me,

Laying all deeply cultivated props asunder,

Don’t know where from it originates and

Why after all it chooses me as the host!

So long I was providing the ring of protection,

‘My Way’ of doing things was my motivation;

Now the pressure is on me to seek motivation,

Not on ‘My Way’, and that could be a reason!

But I am considered as ‘Good’ for the same,

Otherwise, I would earn severe disaffection,

Besides the tantrum that I only have to face,

Till I alone take steps by myself to assuage.

Forever Friend

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. 

Someone who changes your life just by being part of it. 

Someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop. 

Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. 

Someone who convinces you that there’s an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it.

 This is a forever friendship. When you’re down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. 

Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times.

 If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. 

Your forever friend hold your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay.

 And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not to worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end.

Life is like a journey on a train 

Life is like a journey on a train with its stations, with changes of routes and with accidents!

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side.

 However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. 

As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum.

 Others will go so unnoticed that we don’t realize that they vacated their seats! This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all the passengers…requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. 

So, we must live in the best way – Love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty, we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life without us.

I wish you a joyful journey for the coming years on your train of life. Reap success, give lots of love and be happy.

More importantly, be thankful for the journey!

Lastly, I thank you for being one of the

passengers on my train!

Meaningful life

​A Meaningful Life is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated or being perfect.

 It Is about being real, being humble, being strong and being able to share ourselves and touch the lives of others. It Is only then that we could have a full, happy and contented life.


Remembering my classmates,after few years,

My eyes are filled with tears,

Everyone now is busy a lot,

No one escaped destiny’s plot.

Happened to see a girl whom I thought was my best friend.

Just called her by my friends name.

Opps! to my dismay  she is someone else

After months, I had remembered her for a little while.

After making two calls third time i got the answer.

She’s happy,that made me smile.
Everything is fresh in our mind,

Wish Life could just rewind,

Let’s laugh,play and rejoice,

Once again become school friends
Chatting and laughing , we were all in elation,

Till the painful moment of separation,

When it was time to part,

We returned to heavy heart
Today life is full of commitments,

And too many worries,

But those cherished moments,

Will live forever in our memories.

Thoughts# 1

​Life is generally pretty hectic these days; there is a bit of worry, a bit of stress. In the long term stress is taking its toll on our energy, health and emotional well-being. 

Treat your mind with respect. If we keep telling our mind to be quiet, or beating it up, it is without doubt going to end up feeling stressed out. Understand that it is the mind’s job to think. So, instead of telling it to be quiet, give it something meaningful and fulfilling to think about. Then, instead of beating your mind up why not give it the experience of peace? All you need to do is create peaceful thoughts and allow them to turn into a feeling. This will keep you cool and help you maintain your cool in any challenging moments.

The Ultimate Attainment

​”The Ultimate Attainment”

The past is already past.

Don’t try to regain it.

The present does not stay.

Don’t try to touch it,

From moment to moment.

The future has not come;

Don’t think about it


Whatever comes to the eye,

Leave it be.

There are no commandments

To be kept;

There’s no filth to be cleansed.

With empty mind really

Penetrated, the dharmas

Have no life.

When you can be like this,

You’ve completed

The ultimate attainment.

Pani Puri

Pani puri is a round and round fried wheat floor hollow pack.
Stuffed with aloo masala.

The recipe a secret of pani puri wala.

Its an alluring name.

Which over years has gained a lot of fame.
Panipuri stall is a place where girls hum like bees.

Its that where mouth makes spicy water plea.

Without changing the spicy food track.

Famous in cities its a crispy water bread.

Easily able to find tongue as last bed.

Eaten by almost all.

Whether they are big or small.

Its Panipuri its Golgappa it is said.

Its Panipuri its Golgappa facing girls’ attack.

Pani puri is India’s favourite dish.

And everyone’s mouth watering wish.

People say that love brings spice, tears, happiness, taste & flavour to life.

I feel that pani puri does a better job at a cheaper cost.

Constructive Criticism

​Let’s face it. Criticism has become a dirty word.

Pick up any thesaurus and you’ll find “criticism” in the company of “nit-picking, objection, disapproval, and objection.”

The truth is criticism doesn’t have to be a dirty word.

In a broader context, criticism is an assessment, review or observation that can even be in the form of appreciation. Nobody seems to ever talk about that one: When the criticism is good, we don’t call it criticism, we call it approval. We call it praise. We call it being appreciated.

And who doesn’t enjoy sincere appreciation for their work?

Anyways, for constructive criticism to occur three things have to happen: There should be interest on the part of the criticizer and the criticized, there should be bonding and trust that the discussion is for the right reasons, and the criticism should be presented as a discussion.

When the criticism meets these three criteria, there is a strong foundation for learning to occur, and for both members to benefit from honest criticism.

Here are the three advantages to constructive criticism:

1) Gives New Perspective & Valuable Insight. 

When someone invites our criticism, we have the opportunity to help that person by giving our perspective or insight into the situation.

For example, say someone asks us to check out an article they’ve written to get our opinion. Chances are the person really wants to know what we think so that they can make it the best it can be.

Our objective reading of the article can give the person valuable insight into how they can improve the article. If they weigh the importance or usefulness of the criticism, they can rewrite or revise the article to make it better

Thus, the writer and article become more valuable due to the constructive criticism.

2)Furthers Bonding and Trust.

If we’re able to give our honest opinion on something, and the other person finds it valuable, we can increase our bonding and trust with that person.

Giving constructive criticism shows the other person that we value his or her work. The result is an increased level of respect between us and the other person.

If we’re lucky enough to have really cool friends that reciprocate coolness, they will provide their valuable perspective to us.

Let’s say that we help our friend out by reviewing his article and improving the spelling and grammar so people can read it easier.

He says, “Wow, that sure is swell. I can’t believe I have such knowledgeable and cool friends willing to help me.”

So when we want to make sure one of our articles is near perfect, we can send it on to our friend and ask him for his honest opinion.

More than likely, he’ll return the favor to help us out.

As Jim Rohn said, “Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process.”

If we give our valuable perspective, others might be inclined to return the favor.

3)No Hurt Pride or Resentment.

So, when we offer even the slightest disapproval of others or their work without them inviting us to, we are basically asking for them to hate us.

Hans Selye said, “As much as we thirst for approval, we dread condemnation.”

Constructive criticism is different in that we only give it when we’re invited to give it. We give constructive criticism to people that we know and trust, and the people we are criticizing know our true intentions. We present constructive criticism as a discussion, and that our viewpoint is only one perspective and isn’t necessarily fact.

Constructive criticism is more about giving an overall view of things: what’s going well, what could be improved upon, etc.

In return, the people we criticize are thankful that we’ve provided valuable feedback to improve themselves or their work.

Your turn: In what situations do you think constructive criticism could be particularly helpful? How do we avoid people getting angry with us for offering feedback? When is it not appropriate to give criticism?
