Little Acts of Kindness

IndiBlogger Badge
The little things in life
over the years
a smile here, some encouragement there
a slight here, an insult there
all add up to what life is today!

Often though,little acts that caused pain
are long remembered, while
the little acts of kindness
tend to be forgotten....

A switch in approach
recalling little acts of kindness
frequently, consistently, gratefully
and checking oneself from lingering on,
erasing bad memories when they pop up
is a sure way  to happiness,and peace!

स्वमान और अभिमान के
बीच की रेखा कितना पतला है
स्वमान मे रहने वालों को
अभिमान मे आने की ज़रूरत ही नहीं होती
 सवाल ही नहीं उठता !

कहाँ, अभिमान की बात
जब बन्दा अंदर से, है मज़बूत
अभिमान ताकत का नहीं
उल्टा कमज़ोरी की है निशान!

NB: यह कविता बीके ( ब्रह्मकुमारीs)  की  पढाई से प्रेरित है।

In Search of Peace

IndiBlogger Badge
Peace, peace, peace
man in search of peace
here, there,everywhere
like one searching for his gold chain
even while wearing it!

Man searches in vain
for the elusive peace
groping in the dark
running from pillar to post

while all the while
it was available
already there
deep within him!

Men of the world

Amaravati Poetic Prism 2017 ( International Multilingual poetic Meet) was organized by the cultural centre of Vijayawada & Amaravati on 11th & 12th November 2017 at Vijayawada. This poem was recited by me on the occasion.

I will scratch your back
you scratch mine
together we will scratch many more
become rich, successful and famous!

Else we will be end up like Chandrababu
the Tamil film comedian, satirist
who sang “don’t know what this world’s about
something is happening. Oh, It’s a mystery…
don’t know what this world’s about….”

So come friend, hesitate not
the sky is the limit
for the world savvy
the sensible, intelligent beings
who know and play
by the rules of the game!

Dancing in the Rain

Dancing in the rain
is possible only if one is
not having a lot on the mind
not weighed down by heavy thoughts...

"so much work to be got done..
"'the dinner to be prepared.."
sometimes it is doubts and apprehensions
"Dancing at my age and in the rain at that ?..."

It is all about the moment
the miseries and doubts can wait
but not the moment
while the analysing, debating is going on
the rain comes and goes..
waiting for none!

So, if you want to dance in the rain
there is no choice....
you simply have to live in the now
just live in the  present!
