I AM…

Lost In Amberland

I am a breeze, rustling through the Autumn leaves.

Crisp clean air that revitalizes the land.

I am a ray of sunshine, blanketing the Earth with my warmth.

Providing the light for all life.

I am the rain, washing the dust of the day away.

Breathing new life into everything I touch.

I am a tree, standing tall above the grass.

Holding firm in my roots, creating a shelter.

I am the sand, simple enough.

Infinite grains creating a pathway to walk the beach.

I am a wave, traveling the vast sea.

Finally, ending my life gracefully against the shore.

PREM BHAYEE BAHAN KA/प्रेम भाई बहन का।

Madhusudan Singh Poems — PREM BHAYEE BAHAN KA/प्रेम भाई बहन का। भागो जितना भाग सको तुम,मुश्किल प्रेम को नाप सको तुम,भागो हमसे दूर कहीं मैं अम्बर तक आ जाऊँगी,मैं चुड़ैल सब तेरी बलाय,नोच-नोच खा जाऊँगी।हर अस्त्रों में महाशस्त्र ये,क्यों ना कच्चे धागे ये,हँसी-खुशी और नोक-झोंक के,रिस्ते सच्चे प्यारे ये,बहना का भाई है गहना,इस रिश्ते बिन…

ON SISTERS, WORDS AND WRITING

Faith + Gratitude = Peace + Hope

Last Friday, my big sister flew to see me. From the airport, we drove thirty-eight miles to the beach, checked into a historic hotel, exchanged our street clothes for swimsuits, dashed out to the pool, and lingered, cool beverages in hand. Freedom persisted. Our feet hit the sand. The tides rolled in with the ocean breeze. Seashells appeared to be found. Fish tacos beckoned, and we answered the call. It was a weekend of sisterhood, a salve for my soul, a respite by the sea, one last hoorah before the inevitable back-to-school.

As I unloaded my deepest, darkest secrets, I heard my speech sprinkled with words like—actually, honestly, literally, ironically, hopefully…. When had I picked up this nasty adverb habit? An overuse of basically unnecessary words? (I meant to do that). When I say honestly, does that mean I’m not being honest the rest of the time? And if something…

EIGHT BEST HOBBIES TO REIGNITE YOUR PASSION

A Barbarian in Gentlemen's Clothing

Contrary to what most people would tell you, hobbies are not a waste of time. Instead, It is a crucial outlet for you to pursue your passion and interests. It fulfills the side of you that is not stimulated under normal circumstances.

GREAT BOOKS OF THE WORLD – PART ( I )

Great content in this post with perfect narration…

“There is a price for greatness;
if you are not ready for the price,
know that you
are not ready to be great.”
Kingsley  Vincent

“Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.”
Rabindranath Tagore

Some time ago, one of my readers wrote about the corrupting influence of some books. The question raised was how to recognise those books in order to avoid them. This gave me an idea about writing about ‘The Great Books of the World’ series. As a philologist (a graduate in Literature), I will do my very best to convey the universal beauty of books that will expand your mind, lift your spirit, and inspire you to greater things in life.

“Lag Jaa Gale” (Embrace me), from the film “Woh Kaun Thi?”, sung by Lata Mageshkar, although the actress is Sadhana (courtesy of Gaane Suno Naye Purane):
