Each POLICE alphabet means...

The one profession that can’t go malice,
That is none other than POLICE.
POLICE word itself is very meaningful,
As each alphabet meaning is powerful.

If P stands for Protector,
And not to be mere judicial traitor.

O stands for Observing the laws,
And correcting the one with flaws.

L is for doing Legal assistance,
And not be just mere existence.

I is to Inspect situations being careful,
 And not to miss any by being vigilant.

C is to catch hold of Culprits,
And make sure you hold them tight.

E is to execute the judgment,
That is only correct movement.

If each one of duty done up to mark,
Then no one will be left in dark.
Numbers of crime should come down,
Or else each one is just as a clown.

If you ever think to go corrupt,
Then surely all lives get interrupt.
Full fill your duties with bravery,
Or else duties turn into mockery.

Ganesha Goes Hi - Tech

A door opened with a bang; it was Miya, who came home after school.

“Hey! Miya, What’s wrong with you dear? How was your day today?” her mother asked.

“Nothing mom I am tired, I want to take some rest”, saying this she entered her room.

Miya is a high school student, energetic and an all-rounder. Just about a month ago she was made the head girl of the school. All her teachers always appreciated her for the great efforts she put in studies, as well as the way she performed her duties as the head girl of the school. But today she was upset and her mother understood that she is worried about something.

“Well! Dear I’ll be waiting for you, we will have some snacks after an hour”, Mom thought not to disturb Miya now; later on she may discuss the matter with her.

Miya was gadget savvy and used the technology efficiently for her work to shine best. She switched on her laptop and saw a message and startled to receive it from Ganesha .


Miya : “Lord Ganesha! How come you are here?”

Ganesha :“Why, can’t, I have an account? I am also hi-tech now- a- day’s as you all people say a lot on Internet. I also sign up to talk and check every one’s status.”

A Hi-tech Lord Ganesha 

Miya : “Oh wow! I can’t believe it. But Ganesha, I will not chat with you I am angry up on you”.

Ganesha : “Me ! What’s the matter? What have I done?”

Miya : “You don’t know what happened in school today. You are Lord and omnipresent, isn't it”.

Ganesha  :“Aha! I was there, but you tell me what have I done?”

Miya : “My science project was not selected for the inter-school competition.I was not able to believe it.How come my project was rejected”.

Ganesha : “But ,how am I responsible for that, I am no way connected to your project.”

Miya : “Why my project was not selected even after praying to you a lot. You are God and my friend too, you can do anything you wish to.”

Ganesha : “Yes Miya I am there with you always.”

Miya : “Then why my project was rejected?”

Ganesha : “Look, Miya it’s you who have to put all your efforts on your project, and if selectors did not find it up to the mark then you need to look out for the reason behind it; because it’s the hard work that only pays. I can only help those who really work hard with true spirit. Just sit and analyze that what has gone wrong this time.”

Now Miya understood that after becoming the head girl her way of looking at things changed, she became a bit over confident and started thinking that she can achieve anything in life as till date she did not faced the failures.

Ganesha : “Miya, just remember one thing in life, that our success should not desist us from going still further in life.

 Suddenly the laptop screen went blank due to low battery and Miya heard her mother calling for snacks. Miya was amused whether it was Ganesha who really chatted with her or just an imagination.

“Determination should never be less, even if one reaches on top.”

This post is dedicated to Lord Ganesha, on festival of "Ganesh Chaturti".

Coincidence : Destiny or Myth


What can we call the following incidents :

    1.When we choose a different route from the usual one, which never seems busy and suddenly we stuck in a traffic jam as though all traffic was diverted to this particular route. Or
2.Whenever we wear a particular color clothes, everything seems to be falling in place. Or
3.When we think of someone of whom we haven’t met from long time, and suddenly doorbell rings, when you open the door, the same person is standing in front of us. Or
4.Why always I land up parking my car at the particular parking number of a shopping mall.

Let's say if 1st is getting Unlucky, and 2nd is Luck, then what are 3rd   and 4th fate or destiny or shall I say all these are mere coincidences. Douglas Coupland very interestingly quoted “Every single moment is a coincidence.” Then according to this each and every thing is coincidence, in fact you reading the post too. 

"But what are coincidences & what is its importance in life and why they happen or Do we make them happen?”

Coincidences, to me are events in life that happen suddenly, and we don’t understand why it is happening besides sometimes its repetition makes our belief stronger; that we try connecting things with each other. We land up in many circumstances, which muses us at times & difficult to understand. When an incident good or bad occurs, we start analyzing it, the factors behind it and somewhere relate with the particular day of the week, the colour of clothes, the numbers associated with it. For example if a person got all appreciation from seniors on Wednesday, then professionally that day is lucky. Or if by wearing a particular ring one get’s all deals cracked, and that is lucky ring. Are these lucky charms or it just boosts our confidence levels and morale unknowingly to work further in same circumstances. To this Emma Bull cleverly quoted ” Coincidence is the word used when we can’t see the levers and the pulleys.”

Does coincidence decide fate - Aura of thoughts
Coincidences happen and not created

Is connecting our success or failures to coincidences right? Or are we looking for some other stuff to put blame on; as one can relax after that. For e.g. when one is not able to handle situations, it’s very easy to accuse the day or a particular colour; as they don’t defend back. It is very aptly quoted that “Nothing is just coincidence every tree in life’s garden bears significance.”

It is we who create coincidences and often visualise a situation in only one direction, rather for evaluating the conditions responsible for that. It’s true that coincidences happen but one shouldn’t make it a belief. Each and every situation is a part of life and if there were failures today, tomorrow success would definitely be yours. So build up such confidence that no color or number or thing can refrain us.  And few believe that coincidences are sign of God, but that should not stop anyone in doing their tasks. Patricia T Holland very rightly quoted that “Coincidence is a small miracle in which god chooses to remain anonymous.” And according to Bhagavat Gita too, “One need to do Karma, irrespective of desiring the results in future”

Finally I would only say, “Don’t mistake coincidence for fate, and if things happens, there is a logical reason for it.”

In a Quest for Conversation..contd


Enjoy reading the first part of the story
   
I was left amazed to hear my name, when a voice called out saying “Hello Bench B-P-12, how are you?” I eagerly replied, “I am fine, but are you really talking to me?”. I was happy to meet a stranger and more in joy that a stranger was talking to me.

Then the little boy aged around 7 said, “Yes, I am talking to you”. I was so happy to hear someone talking to me, “What’s your name child?” I asked.

He answered, “I am Zen, recently shifted to nearby apartments”.

“Oh! that’s great, so now you will be regular visitor of the park and my companion too.”, I replied cheerfully.

Zen answered, “No, I don’t think so, I get bored here”.
I was perplexed to hear that how can a child say no to park and asked him, “Why is it so? Don’t you like playing here?”

Zen sadly replied, “I don’t know anyone here, all my friends are left behind.”
Zen was bit hesitant to talk to the other kids in the park but, I could see a quest of conversation in his eyes. I knew how important a companion is and decided to motivate him to make a start.
“Oh! c’mon you can make friends”, I assured.
 
Short stories - Conversation - AuraOfthoughts
 B-P-12 is happy to have company
Zen eagerly asked, “Is it that easy? How I can start a conversation with them?”
I tried to make him a bit relaxed and answered his anxious question ,”Why don’t you do the same way you started a conversation with me.”

“But, what if they don’t allow me to play with them?” Zen asked.
I told Zen don't hesitate to initiate a conversation and be confident, and in the fear of rejection you will stop making friends. You can always make friends by saying a “Hi or Hello with a big smile”.
Zen who was keenly listening said, “That’s it”.
I also added, “Yes, I know making a first move for conversation is difficult, but once done all will go smoothly.”

By taking my encouraging words Zen rose to start a few steps and turned back to say “Thank you B-P-12”.
And I said happily,” you are lucky Zen.You can have friends, they are precious part of life, and now I am too to have you.”

Suddenly a ball came bouncing towards him, and was asked to pass on. I immediately prompted Zen to say Hello and start a conversation.

Then Zen smiling started “Hello I am Zen, Can I play with you all” and all the kids around smiled and nodded in yes.

I have my share of happiness seeing Zen playing regularly in park and of course Zen is happy to have friends around.

“Inspiration can be taken from anyone or I shall say anything; important is to start, naturally it will have smooth finish”

In a Quest for Conversation

In a huge well-maintained lush green park where bushes were carved in shape of the animals and benches were placed in a row at equal distances all around the jogging track; where each one denoted by a unique number. And I am Bench number P-12, in short I am B-P-12. I am placed beside a bush shaped out into an elephant; I too feel majestic and strong along the bush.  Even I hold a special place in the park, as I am little bigger than the other benches.

My morning starts by witnessing fitness lovers who start their day with morning walk, jogging and exercises; few are in their own world with headphones on. And then there are batch of little aged people who walk at their own pace to stay fit. I really love to listen when they discuss about how things were in past and how everything is changing rapidly.  

I often see that two complete strangers get seated to take some rest,  just pass on a half a smile, that justifies they are here for sitting and not for any conversation and I get bored. I like people whose landmark is my place, and they would say “Let’s start morning walk tomorrow from B-P-12 bench”. I feel the importance as I am marking start of their fitness journey.

And there is another set of people, which are similar to me as they just sit and gaze at the sky, or surroundings in a deep thought, may be they find peace of mind by sitting alone on bench rather than walking or jogging in park.

Afternoons are calm, and from evening, park is filled with children and elders again. I like people around me, which make me happy and lively in the world.
Conversation story auraofthoughts
B-P-12 looking for a company
Sometimes I think, I have witnessed a peaceful soul, endless chat, tears of person, and been a support to very old people to stand, a test for toddlers to climb upon me, sometimes a security for people’s belongings for few hours and sometimes for days. Many come and go, but at end I am alone; I give accompany to many but, who accompanies me”?

“All are busy bees, no one would just stop and talk to me for a while”.
“When I would be in a conversation and not mere an alibi of a conversation?”


When I was doing self-talk for refreshment, a voice saying “Hello Bench B-P-12, how are you?” left me stunned.

Why I worship & love Lord KRISHNA the most

Why I love Krishna the most,
This question I am being always post.
Here is my answer, to all those questions,
Krishna’s simple sayings mention.
Charming face mesmerizes all,
And my worries of towers fall.
He is like my child, when I shower care,
For whom I take utmost care.

Aura Of Thoughts - Why worship krishna
Belief in KRISHNA becomes stronger

When he loves, he doesn’t bother,
He just wants others to prosper.
He is best as the mentor,
As his advices never make you wander.
He is omnipresent in every verse,
Even in his mouth resides universe.
Though Krishna is divine,
But somewhat he is like mine.

Krishna Aura Ofthoughts
KRISHNA means
His magical flute says it all,
Spreading love among all.
Love, happiness, anger, pain,
All this is what Krishna’s tame.
He played pranks and tricks on loved ones,
And rescued all from dangerous evil demons.
Trumpet, drum, harmonium that cannot say,
His aura of magical flute plays.

Just feel him everywhere,
When you are in despair.
Boundless, fearless are all his deeds,
This never let your eyes weep.
Make his portrait permanent in your heart,
See how you bounce back for a new start.
Is Krishna here today, is this what u say,
I believe in my heart he always stays.

15 Questions raised on a National Day

John F Kennedy strikingly quoted” Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”. This thought really made me ponder for a while, and a series of questions were raised in my mind and put forth before my soul on a national day. I want to share with you all these questions that made me spell bound.

1. Why that is the patriotic feeling is felt only on National days? Why not we feel the same every single day?
2. Am I treasuring to be part of an independent country, which was gifted by our national leaders and their followers; who sacrificed their life only to give their future generations a beautiful place to live freely?
3. Is there any match to freedom fighters valor and love for their nation which makes our eyes wet?
4. Is just discussing about politics and the changes required will make the difference? Or any actions are also taking place?
5. What as a citizen of a country I can contribute for its further betterment? Is my share useful?
6. Does paying taxes, completes my responsibilities?
7. Or just supporting my nation’s team in world championship?
8. Does sharing forwards on betterment of nation fullfil my duty? Or displaying pictures of national symbols showcases my patriotism?
9.  Do I have become selfish and forgot my duties? Why at times we ignore or forget our duties towards our country?
10. Is patriotism in today’s time is only left in army, navy and air forces?
11. Is my duty over by electing lawmakers and national & state elected representatives?
12. How can I conserve my country’s Natural resources and its rich heritage? Am I doing something for that?
13. Am I standing against for every wrong deeds happening around?
14. Is respecting the laws and abiding to each bit of it should be my foremost duty?
15. What as a citizen I am teaching my kids? How can I work to set an example for my future generations?

My country is my identity, my pride, my strength, my home, and my life…I from today, in fact from now on will try my best to contribute my bit in whatever way I can. Do let me know how can I answer my soul….

I am free

Feel free to be free - Aura of thoughts
I am free
When I speak my mind
With me being my kind
I am free

When I sing a song
With all cords singing along
I am free

When I pen my thoughts
With keeping my heart out
I am free

When I express my views
Without taking other’s clues
I am free

When I support someone
Without answering a question
I am free

When I dance
Without given a chance
I am free

When I walk
Without chalk to mark
I am free

No bonds can hold me strong
As I am soul flying so long

Don’t capture & analyze me
As I am free & Born to be free
