When people are falling like nine-pins around ye unsung

Muster courage to hold on till the last drop

For somebody is required to pick up the fallen pals.


When ye fathom you are right

But hard-boiled truth dawns, you are otherwise

Accept that truth with courage

And put your ‘right’ to tests

Thou not stand on ceremony

It will inevitably isolate you from the rests.


When encircled in the web of uncertainty

In us, a part of overall order of things

Have courage to accept to accept the good words

Of anybody betwixt

Embrace that rightly to free thee out of a fix.


Whilst travelling in unknown land

Finding your fellow being in tattered attire and in pain

Muster courage to know his state

Mitigate his suffering – if you can

If not, few kind words will cost though nothing.


O, Lord, shower thy blessings, we are in dire need

So that we are courageous to blot out

Disparity from humanity based on caste, colour and creed.

  • How you can make difference in your outlook on life.  One can make any change in oneself if he/she has will to do that. Age does not factor in this. This positive change can be affected anywhere, anytime and at every moment of one’s life. If you feel down at one point in time, it hardly means that that feeling cannot be converted into something which can be rather helpful ultimately. Courage and fortitude to pull on under any circumstances will help. It takes two to make perceptible difference. That change cannot be made in isolation. It should always be remembered that nothing is acquired without putting your personal efforts. If at all you acquire something easily, surely, it will go quite easily. Rather than losing your bearings in the initial stages itself. Pet up, pull up your socks. You may be in for many ups and downs. Face them squarely without any perturbation with hundred percent commitments. That will make much difference in the outcome.

For the day, these are sufficient, let us wait and see how Lord guides us on the path of positivity, a step more near to Him and yourself.


  • Make a Difference in Small Ways. We can contribute in small ways to help others whenever they need our help. It may be that your timely help may bring perceptible difference to that individual. It is better to help others by way of imparting knowledge and education which may have a lasting impact on the other party.
  • Charity is good but do it Without Making a Show of it. It has been experienced that some people exhibit magnanimity on the surface so that the people may have good opinion about them. That attitude may make them earn a few brownies but ultimately reality will come to fore and their true colour is revealed. It has also been seen that some people take recourse to taking strict action on others, like terminating others’ services without thinking what consequences that action of theirs will have on the other party and without giving any chance to them to explain what and why he/she behaved in such a manner.  
    • It is here and now which counts and not then and there. Your present action and reaction is key, more important than what you had taken yesterday or would be taking tomorrow. Adopt positivity in your action, taking into account that your actions do not impact others in any way. If it does, you may try to devise alternatives for your actions. A small gain with no harm to others in the process is better than huge gains for you but earned at the cost of others.
    • For the day, these are sufficient, let us wait and see how Lord guides us on the path of positivity, a step more near to Him and yourself.





The prayer fine-tunes the baser thoughts,

Into thought sublime with bountiful blessings of our Lord,

And creates restful alertness,

To our body and mind in its eternal stillness,

And profoundly balances mind, body and spirit.


When fear of unpredictable future and dead past stalks at every step in life,

The Omnipotent Spirit, dwelling in thee will generate will

And dissipates ominous fear and replaces with courage to face thy today.


When invaded by days of disharmony

Then Divine Grace bestows harmony

And harmonies our life to face it squarely.


When the wells of alternatives have parched

Deep prayer will give forth sweet joyous opportune moments

And floodgates of alternatives will open ajar.


When life is bereft of any hope

Remember Him sincerely and He provides hope

For every hopeless hope.


When calmness and wisdom replace nervous unease

His Omnipresence will transform the same with ease

And fragrance of calmness and sagacity y will prevail in ample measure.


When engulfed with restless thoughts with no perceptible solution

With His grace presence

Solutions will be aplenty.


My earnest prayer to the Lord Supreme

Always dwell in us and guide us every time

To remove hunger, want and misery from our midst

So that our country’s today is safe & sound for better tomorrow.

Stumble by accident or by design,

Inflict hurt and consequent pain,

Ointment of time heals the transient wound,

But leaves a visible scar,

A silent spectator of incident in the past,

This scar is a boon, as it has its use in identification,

For filling up columns in application,

When your soft emotions are punctured,

By the pricking of unsolicited taunt or when ditched,

By the ones you hold dearest,

It causes overwhelming internal tremors,

With its predictable epicenter at the centre of the heart,

After effects of that are awesome – a heart filled with hurt,

Pain of which is seemingly unforgettable,

And dies only with the death of start crossed victim,

Your feeling get toss-over by the whims,

Of those you hold very closely to your bosom,

The prevalent hurt has anger as manifestation,

Which turns into depletion of energy and depression,

When redirected inwards in frustration.

Some repulse the blistering attack on their impulses,

By paying the donor in the same coin,

hurt-proof, some become, by the consistency of

Hurt they experience,

That the perpetrators themselves become shame-proof,

Of their futility of using their blunted weapon.

Eternal sleep

After our earthy sojourn,

We mortals traverse to a world unknown,

Where to – guesswork abounds,

Some think, few are welcomed to enchanting Heaven,

And the others to burning ‘ghats’ of hell are thrown,

Depending solely on earthy deeds or misdeeds,

Ledger of which are assiduously maintained and screened.

Death is inevitable, then why gets afraid?

Death  is a stark-reality, then why get sad?

When parting with our kins so dear, finally,

During life too, we experience death in small ways routinely,

The one who has seen the dawn of the day,

Will surely see the dusk of the day.

A mistaken sense of pride,

Egged on by mistaken sense of permanence of life,

Spurs us to cling to this life so tight,

That sometimes, we forget the imminence of our end.

Which is so near but seemingly so far away from sight.

Earthy inning is quite alluring,

Parting with worldly possessions so paining,

Yet, in life, we ought to adopt righteous course,

Why fear, accept the change of garb with courage and without remorse,

A life filled with inner freedom is helpful,

Engrave this idea, eternal sleep is sacred and peaceful

Welcome the eternal sleep when it comes naturally with

open hands,

For this end is not the end of cycle of life and earth,

But a continuity of a play played by earthlings,

And supervised from His Heavenly abode by Supremebeing;

the one and the only one by whatever name you mention him.

Drinking, when in excess,
Is a nauseating tendency,
Produces nausea and what it entails,
Imbalances the body equilibrium,
And in the process, life’s rhythm,
Takes you away from yourself,
Brings in its wake thoughts disgusting
Finally a feeling steeped in hurting.

One drunk with pride,
Stands on the legs of show,
Showcases his possessions aimlessly,
And his actions ruthless,
Mind brimming with conceit,
Never flinching in practising deceit,
A peg full of pride,
Mesmerizes thee immensely,
Making the a frog in the well,
Frolicking in the area confined,
Taking you away from your own being.

A person drunk with our Creator’s Love,
Has magnetism to attract all fine things,
Fine-tunes our inner thinking in sufficient measure,
This Drinking, is the source of compassion and
Love emanates from our daily life,
Making the environs refreshingly tranquil,
This peg of drinking provisioned free although,
Is more intoxicating than numberless drinks one quaffs,
O, Almighty make us drunk with your
Peg, brimming with love of Your’s aplenty.

Make a Start for a Change

If one wants to live a life replete with peace, harmony, more near to your Lord it is important that you be near to yourself first. Introspect what you are. What are your weaknesses, try to overcome them through trial and error methods. It is not overnight that these would be wished away. There is no magic band for it. It is not that you will be rid of those weak areas cent percent. As we are humans, we are prone to commit something which is not in consonance with probity, even then, keep trying till baggage of deceit, corrupt practices, lies, and whatnot, under which you are  burdened become lighter and ultimately through concerted efforts just goes with bag and baggage. These are the unnecessary bondages which pollute yourself; you lose some sheen and become weak in your will power, tolerance, perseverance. Make a start by taking small steps daily in your daily life activities and find how much impact it makes on yourself,  thus giving place to a feeling of goodwill bordering on tolerance,  If you want to be near to your Lord, you have to be imaginative, fore-sighted, forgiving, forgetting, non covetous. And these qualities do come to you merely by self-trying – honestly and with ample sincerity. From the past experiences in our life, it is seen that we always give much credence to others’  thinking about yourself. If you start from yourself, it will make much difference overnight. Your life would be totally different. Before picking holes in others’ pockets, see how many holes you yourself are having. Try stitching them bit by bit. No need to do these things in a huff. Quick actions in changing yourself are appreciable, but there are no quick-fix methods   in life. Serious introspection results only when you do not lose rationality, you do not butt in whenever your conscious mind tells you that a particular activity is not good for you. Some of the things which, I found to be most important, to start with for making yourself a person to whom you can love, trust and be able for self-help are given below:-

  • Not Taking what is not Yours. Suppose you are possessing one material thing but you want something different. Your satisfaction level increases in this way. You adopt different methods in acquiring that particular thing. Those ‘methods’ may be corrupt ones and thus tarnish your being. In the first place, make determined effort that what is not yours, do not have an iota of idea even to have that one. A thing hard earned, it may be material possession, knowledge, etc will give you mental peace, positive feeling and you will become a type of a person to whom nobody can corrupt. And to whom you will love. And that acquired love would be your property for ever and never will leave you. Try this, I have tried and found positive results. You can also.
  •  Do What You Think Pleases You. I am of the firm opinion that for changing yourself, even a bit daily, is better than overhauling others around you.  Be selfish in this. You should act in such a manner that it makes you happy first and then by extension, I am sure,  it will be good for your group with whom you are working. But in this, care has to be exercised that your action to please yourself should not be at the cost of others. Never ever make others around unhappy.

For the day, these are sufficient, let us wait and see how Lord guides us on the path of positivity, a step more near to Him and yourself.




The golden natural rule holds,

The one who is here born will age

And end in His folds.

On birth and death none has sway

But many owing to subjective follies dearly pay,

By ageing prematurely and decay.

Ageing in us is a ticking clock

That in all our bodies we lock,

Our DNA has ageing variables

Which makes one either livable or perishable.

Ageing clock ticks on and obeys its own

Timetable till end

Does not care the orders of improvished or crown.

Time of death is not determined at birth or by birth

One can defy ageing by building

Resistance to ward off  the bombardment of decaying molecules

Ageing could be slowed by planting hope for hopeless

And help for helpless

Will to fight odds will trigger

Our coping mechanism to fight stress

And thus ageing

Medication holds appeal to many

Engenders calmness and inner peace aplenty

Yoga infuses relaxation to fused self

Helps humans to back speed ageing molecules of oneself.

Doubt your own abilities,

Find yourself over-shadowed with difficulties,

Work you must to earn your esteem,

By effacing the doubt from your being.

Lingering doubt on the spouse of your own,

Will make your life a bed filled with thorns,

The spikes of which will prick thee every moment,

It’ll also pierce thy conscience the most.

When thy employer doubts they sincerity,

Doubts robs thee of the parity,

In respect,  that you should have got otherwise,

Be not with doubtful sincerity,

It will give birth to vexing disparity.

Think of a man with doubtful integrity,

He lives but without a pure soul,

Right he has to breathe on the soil,

Of his birth, but in his heart of hearts he knows,

That he is living corpse worth nothing to his friends or foes,

He is nothing to the mother, who showed him the dawn of day,

Such a man dies umpteenth times before death favour him actually,

On his death people just utter,

Gone is the man who was burden not only to his own self,

But also on the soil which used to withstand his worthless being.
