A Musical Journey…


Some fiasco teaches and some ruins.
Life is about making the tune.
Everything changes and so does life.
Adopt the changes in order to survive.
Life is a mixture of pleasure and pain.
Enjoy the pleasure and curb the pain.
Problems are part of life and it will come.
Be smart enough to solve them and overcome.
Every problem has a hidden learning.
Identify that and get the meaning.

Life is a musical journey.
Enjoy its music and don’t worry.
Be it sad, good, romantic and tragic.
Every moment is itself a magic.
Life is short and precise.
Live it with joy and rise.
Make the best out of it and learn.
At the end you will earn.
Remember…
Life is a musical journey.
Enjoy its music and don’t worry.
Some fiasco teaches and some ruins.
Life is about making the tune.

Happy Independence Day…



Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

This 15th August will mark the 72nd Independence Day in India. It is on this day way back in 1947 when India became free from British regime. Independence Day is one of the national festival celebrated across the country apart from Republic Day and Gandhi Jayanti which are observed on 26th January and 2nd October respectively.

Indian freedom struggle consists of sacrifice, martydom, motivation, learning and preserving the culture. There were several who sacrified their lives for the cause of nation. The first war of Independence was fought in 1857 which ignited the zeal to get rid of British regime and make India free from any colonial rule. The 90 years struggle and fight ultimately gave us independence on 15th August, 1947 which also came with massive communal riots across the country due to the bloodshed of partition which divided India into two separate nations; India and Pakistan. Many sons of mother India lost their lives to bring freedom and have our own way of living. This independent India which we see today is because their immense contribution and it is our duty to preserve it and pave the way for its betterment. What we do should do good to us and the nation as well. It should be in the national interest.

On this auspicious day, Prime Minister of India hoists the tricolor at Red Fort, New Delhi and addresses the nation. Since 2014, Mr. Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister and this will be his 6th Independence Day speech. It is also the first Independence Day celebration post scrapping Article 370 which gives special status to the state of Jammu & Kashmir. Remember, recently Article 370 of the Indian Constitution was scrapped by the President’s order and Parliament also passed the bill which got President’s consent to bifurcate Jammu & Kashmir into two Union Territories; Jammu & Kashmir (with Legislature) and Ladakh (without Legislature).

On this eve, I would like to wish all of you a very happy Independence Day. 🙂  Do good to yourself and make our country pride with your work and deeds. Stay united as there are many forces who are trying to disturb the situation post disruption of Article 370. So it’s up to us to keep calm and be patient enough in order to not to get carried away with fake news and rumours. Be united, a humble appeal to all of us. Once again, a very happy Independence day to all of you. Celebrate, enjoy the day and last but not the least, be happy always… 🙂 🙂

Above the fancy world…

Above the fancy world there lies a real one.
Acceptance of reality is done by none.
When life show fantastic movie of reality.
People leave the ground with no integrity.
Lack of patience and firmness creates barrier.
Moving in unknown path to find a carrier.
Life does give chance to cope up and rise.
Still, many chose to live in disguise.

Fantasy of life needs to be understood and accepted.
Ups and downs are part of life which is tried and tested.
During the course of journey, be adamant on your decision.
Small fluctuations should not influence your decision.
Reality rests inside us and we need to explore.
Falling and rising are continuous to explore the shore.
Every moment is a learning experience.
Feel it and learn to share your experience.
As life is the biggest teacher…
Come out of the fancy world and start.
As…
Above the fancy world there lies a real one.
Acceptance of reality is done by none.

Cricket World Cup 2019 – A Recap…


The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 hosted by England and Wales concluded on 14th July, 2019 with England being crowned as a new Cricket world champion. It all started on 30th May, 2019 when the battle of becoming world champion began with inaugural match played between England and South Africa. There were total 48 matches played in this 12th edition of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 starting from 3oth May to 14th July.

This World Cup gave a new champion after 23 years when Sri Lanka won the World Cup in 1996. England is the new World Champion in Cricket. In the past, England reached world cup final at three occasions but were unable to defeat the opponent. In 2019, England reached final for the fourth time and managed to become World Champion for the maiden time creating a history. Australia had won World Cup for the maximum number of times followed by West Indies and India.  Team wise number of world Cup wins are given in below table:

No of times World Cup win Team Year
5 Australia 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 & 2015
2 West Indies 1975 & 1979
2 India 1983 & 2011
1 Pakistan 1992
1 Sri Lanka 1996
1 England 2019
Source: International Cricket Council (ICC)

As it can be inferred, Australia had dominated the Cricket World Cup with maximum wins of five times and it is the only country having three consecutive World Cup wins (1999, 2003 & 2007). India won two times in 1983 and 2011. India reached both 2015 & 2019 world cups  semi-final but couldn’t convert it to the finals. India had a close encounter with New Zealand cricket team in 2019 semi final  where later defeated India by 18 runs to enter the World Cup final. The second semi-final between England and Australia was totally dominated by English team who crushed Australia by 8 wickets and paved the way for the historical final at Lord’s.

2019 Cricket World final, played between England and New Zealand was thrilling, interesting and competitive in nature where both teams were putting their all effort to win for the maiden time. Cricket fans across the globe were witnessing the history being made at Lord’s Cricket ground; also known as “Mecca of Cricket”. New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat first setting a target of 241 for England to win. England started to chase the target with early breakdown of 86 for four wickets and game was in the New Zealand favor. Then came Ben Stokes and Jos Butler, their valuable partnership turned the match in the England favor till fall of Butler’s wicket.  Again the ball was in New Zealand favor but Ben Stock  took the game till the last ball of the match and the scores were labeled which made to go for Super Over and England made 15 runs in the Super Over, giving New Zealand target of 16 runs to win. New Zealand made 15 runs in the Super Over and the score were labeled again. England won by the number of boundaries rule as their number of boundaries was more than New Zealand. England created history by winning the Cricket World Cup for the maiden time.  Also, for the first time in the Cricket World Cup history, Super Over was used to decide the winner. This World Cup final was outstanding…

Finally, Cricket won…

Congratulations to the England team for their maiden World cup win and also congratulations to the New Zealand team for winning hearts of millions of Cricket fans.

We will rest…


Weather is cool and smooth.
Your companion is always soothe.
Your silence speaks more than your words.
I am diving deep in your love.
When you came suddenly in my arms.
I became wealthy by your charm.
Worthy are those who find their love.
What about me when you are my love.
Trust me you are the best.
Come in my arms and we will rest.
You can’t look back the atrocities of past.
Better to move on and bury the past.
You suffered a lot and its’ time to enjoy.
Come together and we will have joy.
Let’s begin and start our journey.
We will create a new history.

Sometimes it does the patience test.
Be patient and hopeful.

Trust me you are the best.
Come in my arms and we will rest.
