Little spark

When I was little, I remember myself being super excited about new year. Waited for the sky to fill up with fireworks. Life seemed to begin again. Everything bad left behind, taking the good things and lessons ahead and starting a ‘new’ year in real sense. Past and future did not make anything, but present was a gift. Something has come and its totally for me.

When we were little, we were so much smarter.

Thoughtful, forgetful, forgiving, strong, brave, endless are the attributes that we now struggle to instil within us. We found happiness in little things, calm and chaos. New things (like an amused traveller in a foreign country), new mornings or if may come new ideas, whatever.

Everything was acceptable to be given a thought to and appreciated to be someone’s view.

Kids learning is from fun and research only. The real and correct way to learn. Learning is ‘what makes us better in what we already are as a individual‘.

When did we change? Losing our individuality.

Our education system needs to make such drastic changes. We need the education system, but it is lacking in the first and foremost development of human. ‘Only’ knowledge is a waste and can be so evil for mankind.

Human’s potential to listen patiently is important. But is it the only important to be developed. Speaking about what we think about a topic or view presented. How a new subject shall be learnt. How a new idea can be converted into a smart project and then a business. There should be guides and helpers along the way of learning and not just teachers.

Age baring and limiting a child’s thought to whether or not converting into speech process has made us -humans a part of a race we do not even know we are running.

Keeping the batches small. 20 students with 2 teachers is good. But good enough? 10 with a teacher may be good. But what is the right approach for a right topic. Every topic may need a different approach with one to one interaction or may be a group of 50 with team work?

Evaluation of each topic’s capacity to create a great thought and the process of introducing in a way that makes maximum learning by all present.

Letting children speak, involving parents in early stages of school, giving kids a chance to become what they already are. Its time to stop shaping and stressing the children in a way the society works. Enhancing the quality of a human life shall be the main goal.

Because, these people will shape the future. Because the little ones are so much smarter, thoughtful, forgetful, forgiving, strong, brave, happy in little things, calmer, accepter, appreciators and full of gratitude. Let them be full of spark!

Do not let failure fail you!

Success may take years to come. Because the world is over populated.

For example, if you are building a channel on youtube and want a million followers, you will have to work for at least a year on it. There are people who have been doing youtube from years. And it takes days to reach the video to so many people. And your genre of interest may not be of so many others. So calm down and do not give up.

The very first achievement is finding what you really want to do. So you are already great. Most of us just let things happen and keep doing what we are doing and wait, for things to happen for when we will start thinking what we want to do.

Finding happiness in small completion of goals is another great stuff. It keeps us motivated and we feel like an achiever.

Do not work only for success. Work for inspiration. Work for what inspires us and motivates us. Work for what inspires others and motivates them to be better and kind to the planet, humans and all little and big beings living with us.


Mothers at their best. 

How much a child loves his/her mother! It’s unbelievable how many times a child calls her in a day or an hour itself. They don’t get tired of looking at her beautiful heart and hiding michiefly to make her smile. So precious a mother is to every child. Her voice and her fragrance gives so much comfort, love and homeliness. 

If only one can tell, if it’s a mother’s beauty or a child’s innocence that has made this relation so pure and heartwarming. Every bond is so great to look at and notice how they care for each other. 

Leather Free World

Whats worse than eating animals? Wearing animals. You are not filling your stomach but your pride, ego and ignorance. Animals in makeup, or as shoes or clothes, or like mobile covers or handbags/purses. Have some shame. Wear your own skin. Don’t rip someone elses skin to show of your money. Yes, you are rich enough to buy a Louis Vuitton. But you know whats cooler, donating that amount to charity. May be plant some trees. Show that off. Not your calf skinned belt and bag. Live free of leather. God has given you a life, live in peace.

Missing World


Three little wonders of joy

Here are the pictures of an orphanage that I visited today.

There were 17 kids including 4 infants (three girls and a boy.) The baby boy is in hospital because of being left outside in the sun by his parents.  Baby girls are very cute and small, they look like 5 to 10days old. One of them woke up from her sleep, her cry was so little- one could barely hear.

There were 5 small kids. They were not one year old yet. All were sleeping except the two angels. With them slept one of their caretakers. Out of the two not-sleepy-heads, one was crying so much. She was hungry. The caretaker picked her by her hand, placed her outside the kitchen and handed her a little glass, filled it with milk. The girl kept crying. I feel sorry to write, the woman gave her a beating and two, till she heard me shouting, “don’t do that.” The child then drank her milk. Hardly nine months girl she was. She held her glass and drank by herself. She was not bottle fed or breast fed. All these little kids were sleeping on the floor.

There were little elder ones too. Eight probably. How many of them were actually orphan and how many were the kids of the caretakers, no one could tell.

Two kids couldn’t walk. Two were having cold, so couldn’t eat the ice cream we got them. One of the girls was smart. She called her care taker ‘Aunty’. She was not too mannered but asked me to bring her chips next time. I told her that I saw packet of chips and biscuits  somebody has left for them, but she insisted for me to get them myself. I wondered she was taught to talk in such way.

At the entrance of this compact house were kept toys and little rides like garbage.  My friend said that the orphanage is in the posh colony of the city, so all the money-headed parents leave their kids old stuff like garbage here. No one cares, not even the little ones of that suffocating house.

I missed those three little girls all the way home.


Lata and Shiv: 2

The moment he felt he was rethinking of speaking a statement, he stopped and kept mum. He understood the warning signal by his brain to his brain. Complicated it was, but he was learning to master. 

He told Lata,”I’m very much in love with you and so I want your happiness.” 

His mind processed the thought ‘I know your happiness is with me. I don’t have any comfort to give you but we, together, are so good.‘ 

Whatever decision you will take, I’ll respect that. I am wrong to disturb your peace. We are good, but your happiness matters more. I can only love you, but your husband will give you all the luxuries” he said.

You have to dream before your dreams can come true

My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed. These are great qualities that they must work towards. This is my message to the young people.


India suffers a great loss in the demise of Kalam. The eleventh president was the pride of the nation. One of the kindest human known. Feeling so bad.. Listening to his lectures .. So inspiring.. Such a sweet person and his words so powerful. Big shock out of no where.

Sir, you will be missed! I wish I had the opportunity to meet you. 

May your soul always rest in peace. 

tragic flaw

Something I read somewhere! I don’t remember the source, had it saved in my drafts. I’m sure you’ll like it. 

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I’m not sure who the first person was who said that.

Probably Shakespeare. Or maybe Sting. But at the moment, it’s the sentence that best explains my tragic flaw, my inability to change. I don’t think I’m alone in this. The more I get to know other people, the more I realize it’s kind of everyone’s flaw. Staying exactly the same for as long as possible, standing perfectly still… 

It feels safer somehow. And if you are suffering, at least the pain is familiar. Because if you took that leap of faith,
 went outside the box, did something unexpected… Who knows what other pain might be out there, waiting for you.

Chances are it could be even worse. So you maintain the status quo. Choose the road already traveled and it doesn’t 
seem that bad. Not as far as flaws go. You’re not a drug addict. You’re not killing anyone.
Except maybe yourself a little.

When we finally do change, I don’t think it happens like an earthquake or an explosion, where all of a sudden we’re like this 
different person. I think it’s smaller than that. The kind of thing most people wouldn’t even notice unless they looked at us really close. Which, thank God, they never do. But you notice it. Inside you that change feels like a world of difference. And you hope this is it. This is the person you get to be forever… that you’ll never have to change again.


Miles away I saw it standing tall, and sharp. So gorgeous at night, and light show exactly at 11. Pictures and videos! No. I want to live that moment. I’m in Paris. 

I was right below it, and at the top, admiring the city. More than anything, the happy and excited faces of tourist from all over the places. What was the best thing about being there? I don’t know. Maybe, just being there and living the hype. 

Street vendors understand the looks on the faces of tourist. Few of them followed us till the restraunt. It was horrofic. They try to sell their Effiel tower showpieces as souvenirs. 

It was difficult finding people who speak english. Specially, explaining taxi drivers. There are hop on hop off busses, which are so tempting and good deal for city tour. But we had to go to Disneyland. Shops close early. Inhabitants from all over the world. Cotton candy and caramel popcorn, small chariots and expensive cars, Prada and paparazzi. 

Two days in the city? Not enough. But then we went to AMSTERDAM!! 

Colourful food. Voguish clothes. All kinds of people. Crazy city. Love. 

Standing up

Arjun said, “Krishna, I will not be a part of this battle.” 

Krishna had the power to destroy the opposite army in blink of an eye. He explained Arjun, “It is not about politics, revenge or power, or your cousins, your father like uncles or the innocent army-men who are following orders, their wives and children, or the animals or about yourself and your brothers. It is about doing right in a manner that is righteous (Dharma).” 

It wasn’t Krishna’s battle, it was Arjun’s. He had to fight on his own. Krishna was his charioteer, his guide and support. Krishna was Arjun’s friend.
