Peace…


Peace is one of the most important things which one want to have in life. Everyone wants peace at some point or the other. The nature of peace can differ. One of the ultimate goals is to live a healthy, happy and peaceful life. Life is not same every time. If offers various setbacks too and learning from these setbacks makes us stronger and helps in decision making. Good and bad moments keep coming in life and so is the case with peace.

Living a peaceful life is everyone’s desire. How peace arrives in one life differ from others. There is no measurement of peace or peace cannot be quantified. If I am at peace, I can only feel it and that too from inside. Situation and environment also play its part to have peace in life. The deeds and activities we do in our life also matters to get peace. As peace can be only felt from inside, but most of the time, peaceful feeling occurs with outside situation and our actions or deeds. Confused???

Let’s understand it. Someone can feel the peace by listening songs, some can get the peace by exploring natures beauty, looking at the various landscapes can give peace, helping others can provide peace. Doing meditation provides peace. Someone can get peace by teaching the economically weak children free of cost, writing can give peace (including me) etc. and the list goes on.

Having said that, let us see the other aspect of peace which few so called “egoistic” people practice. Someone gets peace by hurting others, disrespecting others, and letting others down. They enjoy this and peace comes that way for them. In corporates, few managers get peace by humiliating their subordinates, by providing unrealistic tasks, by asking the status of work which were not assigned to them etc. Few does gets peace by practising such unethical things. Such kind of species exist.

Life is not free of problems and obstacles. It is full of ups and downs, good and bad moments and nothing lasts forever. So is the case with peace. Having peace for 24*7 is an ideal situation. It come and go, again come, and go and so on. If one is not having peace at a moment, one should not be worried because worrying for peace makes arrival of peace, far away. It just a matter of time which will pass, one day or the other. This reminds me of the below extract from a poem:

Peace comes in pieces.
All in shades of grey.

Peace comes in pieces. This line is so deep and intense. Indeed, as nothing lasts forever so is the peace. Just like happiness is followed by sadness, peace too has some moment to last and then past. Sometimes, we feel we are in full peace and sometimes we want some more peace. Such thoughts keep revolving in our mind but the point here is when we feel peace, whether it the full one or the part of it. That partial feeling of peace is what comes in grey sometimes and gets away from us. It is subjective to experience the full or partial peace. When it comes, it goes and comes back. This is life having multiple shades.

The above extract is from a poem, written by my blogger friend, Hema Narayan of HemasSphere. One can read the full poem here. She is a brilliant writer, and I would request my readers to explore her blog as well to taste her unique writings. Her blog URL is https://hemassphere.wordpress.com

Whatever life offers, there is a hidden learning, and we must try to explore that learning from various life situations. Stay safe, stay happy and of course, stay peacefully.

Born Player…


Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

During the golden period of life.

We normally enjoy being survived.

Even though we are not good.

We pretend to act being good.

The question arises…

What is good and when it is good?

Trying to find the answer.

We are trapped in our own mind.

Why this happens?

Answer is yet to be found.

A simple try to go…

Deep inside the heart.

Where we need to interact.

Diving the midst of our soul.

We should try to burn all memories which were foul.

Life has several layers.

We are a born player.

Sometime lost and sometimes won.

Losing does not ends the zeal.

Life is real and not a reel.

Good and bad memories will come.

Introspection too needs to be done,

to find the real “me”.

Residing inside “me’.

As nothing lasts forever.

You are a born player.

We are a born player.

Try to Laugh – 1


Laughing is a good exercise and it is always recommended to laugh to release stress. In fact, some people laugh without any reason. Life is too busy these days and there are many browsing internet in search of jokes to laugh. I am a silent person most of the time but when I am in mood, I leave no chance to make myself laugh and others as well. So, in this post, I thought of sharing a joke which is as follows:

Some of my friends kept on asking me, whether I have been to any Cruise? One day, I thought to answer this question.

Friend: Hey, have you been to any Cruise? It’s awesome yar.

Me: Of course, Yes!

Friend: Waw… I have been to Cruise 3-4 times.

Me: Oh… Only 3-4 times. And I go to Cruise more often.

Friend: Waw… You are so lucky and rich.

Me: How?

Friend: You have been to Cruise several times.

Me: Yeah, I have… In fact, I have been to Cruise hundreds of hundreds time.

Friend: Looking at me surprisingly! OMG…

Me: Looking at his face for some time and asked, what happened buddy? You are shocked?

Friend: No no…But I was thinking…

Me: What you are thinking?

Friend: Nothing… You are very rich.

Me: See, I have been to “Santacruz” several times in Mumbai… 😊  Whenever I go to office by train/road, Santacruz comes in between. 😊 😛 

Friend: Scratching his head…. 😊

Well, I think most of you have understood, particularly Mumbaikars. Santacruz is a place in Mumbai. This is the response I gave once. You may consider this a PJ i.e Pakau Joke. But think the other way around, PJ can be Perfect Joke as well. 😊  😛 Hahaha… Just try to laugh if you can. You might be wondering who created this above PJ and the answer is me… Lol 😊 I will be sharing some more jokes… Don’t think much by reading this post and just keep your mind aside and yeah, try to laugh… 😊

Prior to Writing…


Weather is cool now so is the mind.
What to write is the question in mind.
Writing requires creativity and thoughts.
Providing the reader’s, a meaningful thought.
But what makes writers to write is unknown.
It requires efforts which they only own.
Writing is a virtual and pleasant world.
Powerful writing can change the world.
Writers are amazing and so does their literature.
Every piece provides readers, some creature.

Writing journey can kick anytime.
It depends on how and when one finds that time.
Imagination, thinking, creativity, editing and many more.
It needs all the hard work to create the pleasant world.
Good literary pieces touch the heart and the soul.
Leaving behind the memoirs which were foul.
Powerful write up provides a ray of hope for the depressed.
Rejuvenating them from where they were suppressed.

PC: Google

Writing is a unique art and can’t be stolen.
Those whoever tried have fallen.
Thinking beyond the normal life is required in writing.
Presenting the real and the unreal scenario for reading.
What readers read is the final version of the draft.
Writers must deep think to make the “craft”.
Duration from starting to publishing is not easy.
As it requires mind to be constantly busy.
Words doesn’t come many times, prior to writing.
Words doesn’t come many times, prior to writing…

The Lost Battle…



Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

An unexpected situation came in life.
Leaving no choice except to fight.
Life was giving some deadly moments of curse.
It was an invitation to battle, of course.
There was no support from inside and outside.
It was a playground with devils every side.
The bloody battle playground was set.
As there was no option to reset.

The battle started without any planning and strategy.
It was surely going to be a tragedy.
Not being afraid of the outcomes, gave the best.
No worry even though if I may not rest.
Sort of fear and tension surrounded.
Body, mind and soul, all were wounded.
There were no supportive and motivating noise to hear.
My face was flooded with red tears.
Left in the place of pain and void.
It ended by losing as it was a failed try.

PC: Google

The lost battle which gave me a lesson of life.
Result matters and so does the attempt in life.
Attempt gives a chance to know the flaws and fault.
As no one is perfect by default.
Rectification of flaws are important to rise.
Not a wise choice to remain in disguise.
Battle still continues…
Some won and some lost.
Enjoyed the won and introspected the lost.
Learning from the day to day battle as well.
Deep diving the life which is indeed a “well”.
As…
The lost battle which gave me a lesson of life.
Result matters and so does the attempt in life.
