Wish Villa

“This way is your room Sir”, guided hotel porter to the enthusiastic family.  Jimmy and Lily being adventurous kids started pouring plenty of questions to the quiet porter.

He answered all queries and finally said, “Kids, this Wish Villa hotel is famous for granting all wishes, so frame your wishes while your stay” and took leave.

Next day when their parents decided to walk down nearby town, kids decided to cycle around and planned to go library at end.

After reading the journal, they understood, “Keeping faith in self fulfills all wishes”, secret behind naming the hotel.

ताकतवर बोल ( Power in Speech )

Speech has a power which can transform many hearts. Ralph Waldo Emerson very aptly quoted “Speech is power: speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel.” Keeping this in mind we have jotted down our feelings in the form of a poem.

सब कुछ चुपचाप ताकते ,
मन ही मन सबको कोसते,
क्यूँ यह सब है सहना ,
अब तो कुछ है कहना । 

आवाज़ को अपनी बुलन्द बनाकर   ,
अन्तर्मन की सोच बदलकर ,
आज तो सब है कहना ,
मन मैं कुछ न रखना। 

घर आँगन को स्वच्छ बनाना ,
अपने मोहल्ले को भी जोड़ना ,
सबको इसकी एहेमता समझाना ,
कोई गलती करे तो टोकना। 

बड़ों को सफ़ाई का महत्व समझाना ,
नेता को भी यह याद दिलाना ,
सभी के साथ से चमकेगा भारत ,
लगा दो इसमें मन एवं लागत। 

कब तक बोल को टटोलेगा ,
भरी आँखों से चुपचाप सहेगा ,
कब तक सेहमा खड़ा रहेगा ,
अब तो  मोंटू बोलेगा। 

नयी रहें फिर देखो कैसे ,
उज्जवल भविष्य की ओर लेजाती ,
हर मन की आकांक्षाएँ जैसे ,
पूरी होती जाती। 

क्यों न अभी से ही प्रयत्न करें ,
हर एक पल का मूल्य समझें ,
हम भी बता दें सबको ,
आओ कुछ सिखा दें सबको। 

स्ट्रेपसिल्स इंडिया का है यह वादा ,

आवाज़ को बुलंद करें और ज्यादा ,
स्वर को ऊंचा ले जाएं जो,
देश की भलाई को। 

इंडीब्लॉगर के  यह उद्देश में ,

साथ है सारे हम ,
अपनी लिपि की ताकत से ,
बदलेंगे सबको हम। 

English translation :

Everything watching around us in silence,
Blaming everyone in heart,
Why do we have to undergo wrong things?

Now its time to speak.

Its time to raise our voice,
Change our way of thinking,
Today we need to say something,
Without keeping anything in our hearts.

Lets clean our house,
And join our community too,
Lets tell the importance to all,
Correcting all the mistakes.

Teaching our elders the importance of cleanliness,
Remind all our leaders,
Only then can India Shine,
With all our true efforts and wealth.

How long is he going to search for words,
With teary eyes and restless soul,
How long we he will stand frightened,
Now Montu will surely speak.

Then surely we will find new path,
Which will lead to a fruitful future,
Every desire will then be,
Surely be fulfilled.

Why not we start from today,
Understanding the value of time,
We can also teach someone.

Strepsils helps in making our voice bolder,
Taking all of us to a new level,
Which will help us,
For the betterment of our country.

We are all united in this  Indibloggers noble initiative,
With the power of our writing,
We will surely make a transformation.

How To Conquer

How to step up in a pain,
When miseries give a strain.
How to inculcate strength again,
Fighting all odds is the game.

How to grab every second in hand,
Seems slipping away as sand.
How to sing a lovely song,
In deep meadows and dark storms.

Every alternate seems to shrink,
not a second way to think.

Hope does the magic !

But, STOP said my inner soul,
Everything can't be a foul.

Surely there are paths to adore,
Storm can also lead to shore.
Circumstances comes and vanish,
Let's not allow hope to banish.

New horizon shall be soon visible,
Making life smooth and stable.
This is how to conquer a bad day,
Be it yesterday or today.

GOD in Disguise

“Sorry Mom.”

“But what was the need George? See your swollen ankle.”

“Mom the essentials were missing there, whereas I have plenty in closet.”

“Can’t God disseminate equally, as you do with pie at dinnertime?”

"Son you did what God left midway."

Past Attachments

“Why do you always stop here” questioned Varun.

“I feel magic in this place, may be my past is calling me here to complete some unfinished work”Harsha answered, gazing at old shut garage.

“Is it? Calling from last birth; I don’t believe in such things” irritated Varun winked and gave vocational courses entrance form to him.
Snowstorm by Maurice de Vlaminck
Harsha promptly selected spare part handling course, “Yes, this is my destination; no job is small, if done professionally”.

Sometimes we don’t need a plan to execute things they just happen, thought Varun shaking hands with Harsha, the largest spare part dealer.

Childhood Memories : Kids Hut Channel

Its weekend, and I along with my kids watch many learning videos online. Though I may not make it a regular habit with gadgets at this age, but scheduled it on weekends to spend some worthy time learning with a twist. Acquiring through interactive medium is so much fun, in such hi-tech world gaining knowledge is just a click away to enjoy when and where we like. 

Plus learning turn out to be easier when things are enacted through pictures, furthermore child gets attracted to colors and animated characters connect to them easily. I still remember how I used to complete my homework and just stick to the TV to watch Chulbuli batein by Tabassum on DD national. Recently watching the video,“Chanda ek tarae anek” on social messenger, it just took me back in my goody memories. It refreshed how my friends and I also tried to throw the stones in that pyramid manner in just one throw, now I laugh thinking about that. 

Everyone’s childhood is spent listening stories from elders, and these stories thought us larger than life lessons that even today I am not able to detach from them. One of my most loved stories was the” Little red Riding hood”; I used to stand in front of the mirror dressed up in a red attire and imitate her. Red riding hood tells us to obey our elders and not to talk to strangers on our way. Here is the youtube video of 'Little Red Riding Hood' from Kids Hut

I wonder how these beautiful stories and rhymes are passing on from one generation to another without losing its charm and are favorites of all, hats off to the makers and the YouTube, which has kept them alive in our hearts. Or it could be Twinkle Twinkle Little star poem, where it’s rhythm is rooted in our senses. It taught to look at stars and really wonder how far they are. That poem had not lost touch from my heart till date. All my unrealistic fantasies are part of that poem I wish I sat on a swing on touch the stars. Stars hold very important part in every one’s life, just look at them they really make you smile; isn’t it? Today too when I gaze at them in dark night there is smile on face, which says, though aspirations are to achieve but I can look at them. Seeing your goal can surely make you stronger to achieve. They teach us to shine always under any circumstances. Let's look at the stars again in this video from Kids Hut

“Those cute childhood memories are like an orange punch whose flavors are fresh and blasting.”
