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.

One has to go


Sooner or later, one has to go.
Why to waste time to satisfy useless ego?
Live and let live should be the motto.
Powered by motivation and inspiration, one should go.
Love the beauty of nature which is ultimate.
Learn from nature as it is your mate.
Death is the ultimate truth.
Accept it and don’t lie.
Why to fear as we have to die.

Body is waste after death.
Good deeds are the only thing left.
The return of your deeds will pay you one day.
Sooner or later you will enjoy that day.
Life is short and uncertain.
Good deeds will be remembered for certain.
Stay positive, focused and then grow.
Sooner or later, you will glow.
Love life and enjoy every moment.
Every moment is indeed a present.
As…
Sooner or later, one has to go.
Why to waste time to satisfy useless ego?

Better to do something…


 

Life is full of unexpected events.
Sometimes bad sometimes good.
Making cry or smile at those events.
It’s good to have experience.
Sometimes startling and sometimes enjoying.
During the midst of day and night.
We often come across several memories.
Some haunted and some taunted.
Memories remains forever.
Events can’t be forgotten.
But can  only be forgiven.

Some moments are everlasting.
Making us to cherish.
Some are really unfortunate.
It is our duty to make it fortunate.
This is what life’s all about.
Here we are born and will be dead one day.
Better to do something…
That will be remembered for everyday.
Time is less and life is short.
Better to do something…
That will reside in everyone’s heart.

Concluding without Analysis


There are different circumstances in life where we always come to conclusion after analysing the facts and figures, situations etc. In fact life is always full of incidents. Every moment we are facing an incident or better to say some happenings which are always a part of life. Each and every scenario has its own aspects. Life is never the same. Every time we take some decision based on some facts or scenario and come to a conclusion. But do we really always  come to a conclusion by thorough analysis of all the aspects and facts?   If you want to know the answer then you have to analyse first and then come to a conclusion.

Yes what I am pointing here is one of the general and most neglected behaviour and that is “Concluding without analysis”. There are many circumstances where we bluntly come to a conclusion without analysing anything. There are times where we generally come to conclusion without knowing the reality which should be avoided.  No one is perfect in this world. Everyone is having some faults and this is the law of nature and we cannot change it.

analysis

In this hectic and busy life, we meet and interact several person in our surrounding or in office. Its not always easy to feel comfortable with everyone because everyone is having his own comfort zone.  Everyone is having his own way of thinking and that may be good or bad. Many people have the tendency to taunt always and hurt others without any reason and enjoy that situation and laugh uselessly. There are many things which we cannot control but there are few things which we can control and behaviour is one among them. Our behaviour is that part which can make or break the life and coming to a conclusion without analysis is also a part of our behaviour.We should not posses the tendency to judge others regarding their work, talent etc. At the same time we should not predict what he/she will do or become in future  because remember Dr A.P.J. Kalam was an orphan and he used to sell newspaper in his childhood and he became the “missile man  and President of India”. Narendra Modi was a tea-seller in his childhood but he is the current Prime Minister of India. There are many other examples too.

The tendency to arrive at a conclusion is good only when we have analysed the facts or otherwise conclusion without analysis will happen which will in turn can be dangerous too. Concluding without analysis can happen for sure by mistake or in hurry but that doesn’t mean we should make this a habit. There are circumstances when such kind of attitude is not good to the person bearing it. It depends on us how we proceed on such situation. A simple example is if you are not well and decides to go to a doctor for check up. The doctor first collects the information from you like your name, age etc. and then checks your body temperature, blood pressure etc. and asks from you regarding your symptoms or if necessary he may opt for some blood tests. Based on these information he comes to a conclusion that your are suffering from this disease  and prescribes the medicine for same. Does he prescribes the medicine as soon as you reach without knowing your situation? The answer is no.  In the same way we should also avoid coming to a conclusion without knowing the reality.  Concluding without analysis can give you fun for a short term but for the long term , it is a disaster.

Bhagat Singh – The Real Hero


September 27 marks the birth anniversary of the greatest son and freedom fighter of India, Bhagat Singh. He was born on this auspicious day in 1907 in Lyallpur district of the Punjab Province of British India. He was a patriot by birth and was always ready to go to any extent that is beneficial for country’s independence. His bravery is world known. This post is a simple tribute to this brave and fearless fighter. He lived only for 24 years but within this short span of time, he was able to make an everlasting impact on millions of millions of Indians.

When Bhagat Singh was 12 years old, he visited the site of Jallianwala Bagh massacre where thousands of unarmed innocent people were killed which marked an impact of British cruelty on Indians on his mind. He was disillusioned with Gandhi philosophy of non-violence  after Gandhi called off the non cooperation movement. He had devoted his entire life for the cause of nation and that is why he was reluctant to get married. In fact he left the home to avoid marriage and wrote a letter in which he had quoted.

My life has been dedicated to the noblest cause, that of the freedom of the country. Therefore, there is no rest or worldly desire that can lure me now.

Simon Commission was set up by British in 1928 but it did not have any Indian members. So there was a huge protest across the country. Lala Lajpat Rai led a march in protest against the Commission. Police attempts to disperse the large crowd resulted in violence. The superintendent of police, James A. Scott, ordered the police to lathi charge the protesters and personally assaulted Rai, who was injured. Rai died of a heart attatck on 17 November 1928. In a way to take revenge of his death, Singh conspired with revolutionaries like Shivaram Rajguru, Sukhdev Thapar and Chandrashekhar Azad to kill Scott. However, in a case of mistaken identity, the plotters shot John P. Saunders, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, as he was leaving the District Police Headquarters in Lahore on 17 December 1928.

Bhagat Singh is most popularly known for his involvement in bomb explosion in Central Legislative Assembly on April 8, 1929. He along with his revolutionary friend Batukeshwar Dutt accompanied the explosion. They were present their only after the bomb blast and shouted the slogan “Inquilab Zindabad”  and were arrested.  The nominal intention was to protest against the Public Safety Bill and the Trade Dispute Act, which had been rejected by the Assembly but were being enacted by the Viceroy using his special powers; the actual intention was for the perpetrators to get themselves arrested so that they could use appearances in court as a stage to publicise their cause. Their intention was not to kill but to make their voice audible to British government as in the words of  Bhagat Singh – ” If the deaf are to hear the sound has to be very loud”.

The execution started and based on the investigation Sukhdev, Bhagat Singh and Rajaguru were found guilty of Saunders murder, Assembly bombing and bomb manufacture and were put in jail. The discrimination between European and Indian prisoners in all areas in jail lead to infinite hunger strike started by Bhagat Singh and his followers in jail in order to protest. The Britishers used all the ticks and tricks including force-feeding and other tortures but were unable to put single drop of water in their mouth. The fast lasted for 116 days until it broke. Meanwhile, the trial continued and  on 7 October 1930, the tribunal delivered its 300-page judgement based on all the evidence and concluded that participation of Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru was proved beyond reasonable doubt in Saunders’ murder. They were sentenced to death by hanging. The remaining twelve accused were all sentenced to rigorous life imprisonment.

On 23rd March, 1931,  Sukhdev, Bhagat Singh and Rajaguru were hanged till death and became immortal in our heart. This day is celebrated as Shaheed Divas or Martyrs’ Day in India.

Bollywood had also paid tribute to this son of India by making movies depicting his life and struggle. The most successful movie remains Manoj Kumar’s Shaheed which was released in 1965. In 2002 three movies were made on Bhagat Singh’s life namely Ajay Devgn’s  The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Bobby Deol’s 23rd March 1931 Shaheed and Shaheed-e-Azam.   The 2006 film Rang De Basanti is a film drawing parallels between revolutionaries of Bhagat Singh’s era and modern Indian youth.

Bhagat Singh was not only a revolutionary but he was a writer too. You will be surprised to know that he was an atheist. In his book “Why I am an atheist”  he had thoroughly described the reason behind being an atheist. I have read that book and it is worth read for all those who love to read books. It won’t take much of your time as it is not thick it is thin. 🙂 I would like to share one of the extract from that book which can be found on wikipedia page too…

As regard the origin of God, my thought is that man created God in his imagination when he realised his weaknesses, limitations and shortcomings. In this way he got the courage to face all the trying circumstances and to meet all dangers that might occur in his life and also to restrain his outbursts in prosperity and affluence. God, with his whimsical laws and parental generosity was painted with variegated colours of imagination. He was used as a deterrent factor when his fury and his laws were repeatedly propagated so that man might not become a danger to society. He was the cry of the distressed soul for he was believed to stand as father and mother, sister and brother, brother and friend when in time of distress a man was left alone and helpless. He was Almighty and could do anything. The idea of God is helpful to a man in distress.
