रक्षाबंधन

रक्षाबंधन का अर्थ…


र = रक्षा करना बहन की ।
क्षा = क्षमा करना बहन को ।
बं = बंधन से मुक्त करना बहन को ।
ध = ध्यान रखना बहन का ।
न = नहीं भूलना बहन को ।

आज़ गया पोस्ट आफिस में, भीड़ बहुत थी पोस्ट आफिस में…;
हाथों में बंद लिफ़ाफा लिए थी, अंखियों में वो ढ़ेरों दुआएं लिए थी !
वहां कुछ महिलाएं थी, कुछ बालाएं थी, चेहरे पर सबके ही प्यारी दुलारी मुस्कान थी ।

मैं बोला पोस्ट मास्टर जी ये भीड़ कैसी दिख रही,
रंग बिरंगे कपड़े में श्रीमान ये बहने कैसी दिख रही !

पोस्ट मास्टर जी ने गुस्से में मुझे लाल आंखें दिखाई ,
बोले भैया अब तुम कौन हो भीड़ से तुमको क्या लेना भाई !
दिखा कर हाथों में बंद लिफ़ाफा भीड़ से इक बहना बोली,
सुनो ! भाई मैं बताऊं राखी आने वाली है , बंद लिफाफे में हम भरके बहुत सा प्यार लाई हैं।
हम अपने भैया को राखी संग रक्षाबंधन की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं भेजने आई है ।

देर ना लगाना डाक बाबू पहुंचा देना जल्दी हम भैया के लिए रक्षा कवच लाईं हैं ।

मिलो जब तुम भैया से तो कहना मिलने बहना को तुम जल्दी आना ।
खेलेंगे बचपन का खेल, तुम वो बचपन के गुड्डे-गुड़ियां ले आना ।

ये कहते-कहते उस बहना के तो आंसू भी निकल आई थी।
सुनते-सुनते मुझको भी बचपन के दिन याद आएं थे।
अब पोस्ट मास्टर जी बोले…
बोला ना रो मत बिटिया दिल मेरा भी आहत हुआ,
लेकर प्यार तुम्हारा मैं दौड़ा दौड़ा जाऊंगा…
जहां भी हो भैया तुम्हारे देकर वापस आऊंगा !

ये सुन फ़िर से वो बहन मुस्कुराई थी….
अनमोल मोती आंखों के वो आंखों में ही वो छुपाई थी ।
ये सब देख आंखें मेरी भी भर आई थी….!!

🙏🌹❤️रक्षाबंधन❤️🌹🙏

बचपन

Great post with great message.
It’s a social need to protect the childhood and every child deserves that.
It’s the foundation of a value driven society where children learn and prosper.

THE HIDDEN SOUL

कहीं गुम हो गई वो मासुमियत
खो गई कहीं वो प्यारी मुसकान
इस असंतोषी भागमभाग भारी ज़िन्दगी में
यादें उन बीते दिनों की
यादें उन गुजरे पलों की
याद आती है फिर
बचपन की वो हँसी फुलवारी
थोड़ा कच्चापन, थोड़ी नादानी
वो हर समय की खेल-कूद
वो हर पल शैतानी
नहीं जानते क्या सही या गलत
नहीं जानते छल-कपट
वो तोतली आवाज़ में बातें
वो हर पल दिमाग में चलती नई खुराफाती
वो हर दिन की नई जिज्ञासा
नए नए प्रश्नों के साथ हाजिर
वो छोटी छोटी लड़ाई दो पल की
फिर मनाना दो पल का
पर ये विडंबना आज की
कि छिन गया है बचपन बच्चो का
अब हाथ में खिलौने या किताबें नहीं
औजार है
नन्हे नन्हें बच्चें पालक है परिवार के
बच्चे काम पर जा रहे है
खो रहा है बचपन
खो रहा है बचपन ।

TIME & LOVE

WORDSNOW HEART

Do you know that TIME is more important than LOVE?

You know why?

If I give you LOVE but I don’t have TIME, would you believe that I LOVE YOU? Maybe not!

But if I give you time because I love you. I am sure that you believe 100 percent and I am sure on myself too that I love you.

ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

It has always been a controversial social issue whether death penalty is a need or not for any crime.

I have little personal views on this topic. At present we have this provision for heinous crimes when the convicts under trial are found guilty of the crime.

We need to think how liberal can we be to either forgive or punish someone for a crime. The primary cause behind any crime is false education and lack of values. When people live a life not well connected with others in society they tend to develop criminal mindset as pain of others don’t affect them. They live and die for their own amusement.


Few tend to feel they are more powerful than others and what if they do something extraordinary that average people can’t think of. They can always find an escape route. They misuse when they don’t know the real use of power.

The purpose of any punishment should be to bring change in society. Change in our thoughts and action. We may look at change in others but the convicts are not allowed in this case. There is no scope for them to change and come back to society again. Have we started believing some people can’t be changed at all.

People with a criminal state of mind tend to be more inhuman by nature these days. They sometimes commit a crime to have fun without any thought of the outcome of their madly action.

With capital punishment the scope for change is shrinking and intolerance increasing leading to a more inhumane society. While some may see it as an example for others to guard themselves and not even think of committing such a crime, in reality we observe little change in society with the attitude of people. Fear factor may not work well all the time.

People these days demand punishment and they feel happy when government fulfills their demand. I don’t understand well if it’s to give justice or under pressure. They demand to put an end to another life that caused great pain to their lives. As an outcome the possibility of false encounters can’t be ruled out.

Inhumanity at rise and government feels pressure while making decisions. As citizens we need to respect a decision and should have no say in judicial matters. Media here has great responsibility not to provoke people.

There are many constraints now because of the mindset of people and the way we have built our society that prevents us thinking about any historic decision for sustainable social change. We grew ourselves up and developed that mindset over a brief period.

We have to think seriously now whether time has come or not. When I started thinking about this sort of punishment I went back to history and read what great personalities had to say about it. Below are few of the thoughts from great indian orators as it is published in the “penguin book of modern Indian speeches…”

FOR HIM WITH LOVE

Nice poem with great expression of human emotions…

Vrunda Chauk

i fall for him when he calls me “princess”

i fall for him when shows kindness for humans and animals alike

i fall for him when he knows me more than i understand myself

i fall for him when he genuinely shows interest in things i love

i fall for him when he is angry and then even more angry coz he can’t stay mad at me

i fall for him when he touches me without using his hands

i fall for him when he tells me he would still love me the same even when i make a mess

i fall for him when he understands the pain I’ve been through and promises me a “happily ever after”

i fall for him when he understands and supports my passion

i fall for him when he encourages me to be the best version of myself

i fall for him when…

MOTHER AS A TEACHER

image

image

In India we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan as  Teachers’ day every year.  It’s a coincidence  this year we celebrate ‘Vinayaka Chaturthi’ too today across India. Lord Vinayaka/Ganapati is the god of Buddhi (wisdom),  Riddhi(prosperity) and Siddhi(attainment) according to Indian mythology.

image

On this Teacher’s day, a very nice thought came to my mind. Who is our first teacher? I think it’s our mother.

It feels very satisfying when a mother says I will learn again with my kid as I forgot few basics. What does it mean? I think it’s a very positive approach towards life. I came to learn this during an interaction earlier. It can reignite the passion in you and motivate your kid as well. This is an win-win situation for all in society when both can act as teacher and student for one another.

Do you have a second opinion?
You think and I am thinking about it to write more.

Finally, something from my very own thoughts …

“Our mother is our best teacher as long as we visualize, respect and learn from her as our teacher ”

Happy Teachers’ Day to all !

DOING THE RIGHT THINGS

“Culture is largely an invisible wonder which remains invisible until realised and unless practised.”

                                   – Anonymous

I am not at an hospital or a mental asylum but all that I visualise now is the picture of doctors around the globe and their service to humanity. From my experience so far I had with people earlier I came to know many having pleasant experience and few having bitter conversation with doctors.

Let me check how these experiences going to shape my thoughts as I write here further.

You might have heard and read about this topic several times elsewhere before. It just sparked to my mind again and I felt to share my views once more. I can do this repeatedly as long as it serves the purpose most desirable.

Every human being has the responsibility to serve their nation and society. We can find opportunities to do this and play our role well. While all can find opportunities, doctors need not have to look for it. They are direct servants to people by profession.

Today when we celebrate world doctors day it reminded me of their greatness and service to our society. We are not complete without them. Let’s just analyse what they do when they diagnose a patient without going in details about their work and studies. Simply talking in a layman’s term we can say they find the root cause of the disease and then take action to cure us from it.

Anything that goes against social and human values is also like a disease. It’s like an epidemic when people get affected by it from others without their true knowledge. It makes people mentally sick over time when widespread at a larger part of the society. The worst affected are children. We all can play the role of doctors to some extent and cure illness in society when we understand the root cause.

The problem is acute when the disease is already widespread but only very few realise it. If you have already discovered the root cause still you may not get good support from all if you express your views without their understanding. It’s because of their wrong practice over years and people are already under it’s grasp. It’s acting like a slow poison and killing people from inside gradually over a long period that they don’t realise now well. This sickness gives them pleasure and they don’t want to give up. So, it’s required to generate awareness before taking any action as no action can bring benefits without support of all.

What is the difference between doing the right things and doing things right? Is it directly linked to our culture? Probably I can have a better perspective with good understanding of our culture. So, before analysing about doing the right things let’s understand more of our culture. A culturally fit society can successfully root out all evil plants spreading illness in it.

Culture is an invisible wonder only to be realised and practised. It has no physical appearance but visible at large upon realisation. It can be preserved with practice. This is purely my personal opinion that may be analysed and reviewed further. I remember few words I listened from eminent speakers at a leadership summit. In simple words they defined culture as follows:

” culture is something about what we do when nobody is watching. ”

If I understand the above well I feel it’s about doing the right things all the time irrespective of what others say about us and if anybody watch us or not. Then only we are culturally fit as it’s now ingrained in our blood along with other core values.

We do the right things to please others because we feel insecure to do anything unpleasant in the presence of others. We start following our wrong pursuits at the slightest opportunity as we are passionate about it and practising these habits for a long time now.

We don’t like to do any analysis on our habits whether right or wrong as long as it’s pleasurable to us. We find it difficult to give up even when we understand it’s a wrong practice. Certain practice’s are predominant in the name of religion as well and people who realise find no courage to go against these because of the fear of social wrath. It needs strong determination, courage and simple practice.

We can bring any change if we start following our heart. Mind often misguides but a pure heart will never guide anybody think and act wrong. It will never ask you to hurt your fellow human beings and cause pain to any living organism.

With the above strong pursuits in mind I can visualise cultural fitness at large and practical realisation not far away. It’s quite attainable and as simple as our understanding.

When we do the right things we help ourselves and all around grow further culturally. It’s very much essential for our own security and upliftment of the human race.

Let’s all unite together to build a great society with strong culture that can last forever.

I wish all a very Happy Doctors Day for their continued and countless service to humanity!!

VALUES FOR ALL

What is value and why should we care for it? Let’s think of all values that we’ve been learning from our childhood. I’ve learnt from my parents, teachers and all my elders. These values really help us become better and better human beings. I often think i know most of the core values to it’s complete meaning but when i entered my workplace and shared my thoughts with others, i came to know there is so much more to learn and i am not a complete person. We celebrate values week to understand it’s importance and share with others. Values enrich our lives everywhere including our workplace. What are the core values that never change with time.

I have a collection of it i’d like to discuss here.

** What are your values in life and work? I’d love to learn from you.
