A Little Greed

Greed is often considered as bad or wrong , in fact it is one of the seven deadly sins we are told to stay away from to lead a better or clean life.


But is it really so bad? I mean it is mostly the driving force of anyone’s life. But again, it can lead to wrong path and could bring chaos.


For instance, if any king or dictator desires absolute power he could bring chaos for the entire world.


On the other hand it can affect the world in a positive way. A person who aspires to become famous through his talent or good work then that greed is good and justified.


If we have a little greed to become or achieve something and work hard towards it, if everyone becomes active that way, renouncing laziness, it could do wonders for an economy.


I mean excess of everything is harmful and to lead an active and balanced life we should drive ourselves with Little Greed .


There is importance of both negative and positive energy in our universe. What brings balance or makes life possible to thrive is the balance of both energies and not the excess of any one.

Importance of Mental Health

In this fast paced world ,it has become a monumental challenge to take out time for personal well being. People are facing problems like anxiety, high blood pressure , hyper tension and other physical problems. The world today is so much engrossed in their work, study and other endeavours that it is taking a toll […]

Importance of Mental Health

Facing Criticism

Most of us have gone through criticism in our lives for one reason or another. It can be for our failures or for any mistake we committed unknowingly. But no matter how hard we try to take it positively, we feel bad and feel low in confidence after facing it.


It is in our nature to commit mistakes time and again in our lives for which we are criticized by the people in our surroundings. The criticism we face can be constructive and we should always have an attitude to take it positively.


We should realise that we are imperfect souls, we are bound to commit mistakes , we face failures more often than not but instead of cursing ourselves for a long time we should try to improve ourselves through those experiences.


From our birth to the last second we breathe , we make mistakes, we learn from them and improve ourselves even for few seconds before death.


So open yourself for every situation you might face in the future. If it is any criticism , you have to learn from it like a sincere student. If it is any failure that suck your energy then you have to be like your star, Sun that continues to burn in spite of losing energy every second.


It might not be an ideal time for you right now but your perseverance will give you what you always wanted to achieve.

How to Comprehend God?

Something which gives you positivity, something that makes you feel good , something which cannot be explained but makes you feel empowered.


Your parents, friends ,animals , nature and everything in your surrounding have an element of that super power which gives you joy and strength. You can call that thing God or maybe something else but whatever it is it cannot be explained in words.


For me nature teaches you humility, it gives you calmness, It takes away negativity of every kind from your heart and mind. It is nothing less than God to me. Maybe I don’t believe in conventional way to worship God But if you respect nature you have to respect that as well. Maybe there is a hidden meaning behind it.


Kindness is the biggest virtue and if there is some kind of order in this world then it is only because of qualities like that. Your ego should never conflict with kindness and no matter what the situation is ,you should always try to be humble otherwise you might regret later.


To be more precise ,you should follow the path of your Good karma which is your biggest worship , it will never fail you and it will always come back at you in some or the other way in some positive form.

The Year of Losses

It is the inherent quality of humans to look for something to cheer about but there has been very few things to celebrate this year.

One year ago I wrote about the horrific year which had gone by because of pandemic, little did I know that a much bigger storm awaited us. The Delta variant brought us on our knees, exposed our health facilities and took away many of our loved ones.

I lost few of my relatives and I have seen their families finding it difficult to get back on track. It is a testing time for entire humanity but ‘hope’ is something We would never forget even on our death bed.

Each of us is bruised right now,
But that would not hinder us
From finding our feet once more,
To stand again and look for sunshine

I am not expecting anything in the future or in the upcoming year and it would be more prudent to stay in this moment a bit more and feel each second which is going by in joy.

Lets make our ‘now ‘ as beautiful ,as joyous as possible. There is nothing we can gain with hate and we would never know how much time we have. So our each act is extremely crucial and can make a difference in a positive way in this world.

Let’s be responsible and do it together….

Without You

How you Vanished?
An Autumn wind passed so swiftly,
Took a piece of me
From my dwindling heart.


A tinny ripple washed away
A brief moment that glowed with dust,
The dust from the star
A piece of my heart.

What’s remain is my breath,
Struggling in the mist,
The mist of my tears
Yearning to glow with her Star !

Another disaster in Himalayas

Today, on a bright sunny day, in the morning , we witnessed another climate change-induced disaster in the Indian Himalayas.

Another glacier burst in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli district which led to massive flooding and avalanche along the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers. This not only damaged Rishiganga power project but took many lives along the river according to reports.

Previously, it happened in Kedarnath in 2013 when excessive rainfall led to melting of chorabari glacier which triggered the disaster. But that was even bigger disaster that took thousands of lives comparatively.

One disaster took place because of extreme heat and the other because of excessive rainfall. Without a doubt nature is retaliating because of our own karma, Global warming.

The biggest question in front of us is when we are going to wake up and take climate change seriously?

The Himalayan region in our country is least monitored and other issues are given more priority. But we, along with the government ,needs to know that when our environment, our planet is not secure then how can we make our economy secure. When there will be no planet to live then what will be the use of wealth, power or anything else !

The fight against climate change should be our number one priority and efforts should be made to speed up our actions.

There are 100s of lakes forming in the Himalayan region because of melting of glaciers which are shrinking at a fast rate. Many have become time bombs that can burst any moment. Sooner we take this issue seriously better it will be for our generations to come.

We have always admired beauty of nature though we exploited it for our selfish gains. We have already seen a pandemic that exposed our vulnerability and the way we are moving ahead many more vulnerabilities will be exposed.

We have two choices- either speed up our efforts towards tackling global warming right now or wait for the nature to finish us to end it’s misery.


It is completely on us to decide.

Roads Untraveled

Pleasures of the unknown,
Waiting for your first step.
Reveries lying on a dusty road,
Craves for your wanderlust!

Winds from the unknown,
Whispering their desire to tread,
To tread inside my heart and infuse
Pleasures they carry from billion souls!

The roads ahead are tough to tread,
But my heart and legs are ready to fret,
I crave to adorn bruises and scars
As I pursue pleasures of the path!

Life, Death and Fear

Life

We are not only gifted with life but also with death. Death follows us since we are born like a shadow of life itself. So where there is life there is death.

Death

Parents not only give birth to their offspring but they also donate death to them. They pass on light of Love and also darkness of hate to their children in some or the other way. And the darkness of mind, heart or the material world achieves nothing but fear.

Fear

Fear is natural to every living being though it is only the imagination of an uncertain future.
In spite of knowing that fear is just an imagination ,it is extremely difficult to triumph over it.

Near the Star

The perils I taste,
The icy gales I breathe,
All the pains I go through
To seek the abode of happiness!

What is it my heart seeks?
And why I exist in this chaos?
All the questions I try to find,
Up above, on the mountains !

Out in the wilderness of life,
I try to push against headwinds.
I tumble and fall on those slopes,
I try to feel divine through pain!

Up above , near the star,
Where my sweat shined,
My tears twinkled with ice
And my soul became Divine !
