Wo kehta hai tu darti bhot hai

Aaj darpan dekhne nikli, to uski surat yaad ayi

Aankhein band sochne baithi, to uski baatein yaad ayi

Wo kehta hai, tu darti bhot hai

Uthte baithte ghabrati hai

Baatein karte jhijhakti hai

Hasne rote sharmati hai

Wo kehta hai, tu darti bhot hai

Dil nai logo ki sunti hai

Kaali andheri raat me rehti hai

Ujalon se katrati hai

Wo kehta hai, tu darti bhot hai

Kaise karun main bayaan

Ye jo rishta humara hai, ek kaanch ki botal hai

Jisme chehra nai dikhta

Jo thamo to tiki rahe

Jo dagmagaye to toot jaye

Kaise karun main bayaan

Ye jo dil ki peeda hai, tune sunna jo chod diya

Kya hoga dar lagta hai

Tune sath dena chod diya

Kya hoga dar lagta hai

Kaise karun main bayaan

Ye jo aansun ki bhasha hai, mere man ke samandar se

Bas behti hi jati hai

Main na bolun to behtar hai

Tu na samjhe to behtar hai

Take Pride in You

Every morning when I wake up, there are few things I definitely do. I wash my face (thanks to my natural oily skin), then brush my teeth, drink one full glass of water (as said by every health expert in the world) and eat a few dates (as said by the greatest health expert, my mom, who says it is good to prevent anaemia).

One fine Sunday, while I was brushing my teeth, I saw myself in the mirror. I was looking at my teeth, then my face, my eyes. I was making faces giving different expressions and realised how I have forgotten this face. I used to do it every day when I was a kid. My mom used to scream because I had to get ready on time for school. But something changed after that. It is not the same. I am a girl who doesn’t spend too much time in front of the mirror wearing makeup. It doesn’t mean I don’t look at my face for the complete day. But still, that Sunday, I felt I have seen myself after a very long time. I had forgotten my own face.

I dressed up, sat in front of the mirror and stared at it for a long time, a very long time. And tears rolled down, I didn’t understand why because I was not thinking about anything. I was just blank. That moment, I realised one simple thing, mirror is a true reflection of yourselves. What goes in, comes out of it. You can view your soul in it. If this is the law, then it should work in all situations. So, if tears come down when you stare at it then  in the same way if you smile, the reflection should be a happier you.

Next day, when I got dressed up, I looked at the mirror and smiled, made faces and laughed. Believe me, the day was lighter than before. So, the next day, I did the same but with greater momentum, the day was better. And I have started practicing this on a daily basis, I smile, I pout, I make poses, I wink, sometimes I say “ I am the BEST”, “I AM AWESOME”, “I AM SEXY”, and it works. I take pride in myself for the person I am. I believe that I am an amazing creature of God. And this simple exercise in a day has actually helped me stay motivated for the entire day.

These days people are so busy in their lives, every moment is like meeting a target, we look at the watch and go to bath, look at the watch and eat, look at the watch and drive, look at the watch and sleep. Everything depends on the watch. If the time doesn’t favour, we skip the task rather than skip the time. It is good to be punctual and be sincere towards our work. But in the midst of all these, we are forgetting one thing. One very important thing,  “to live”. However busy you might be, and you can’t take out even two minutes for yourself. Then, atleast smile when you brush your teeth, when you shower, when you get dressed up. Show your smiles to the one that created you the same way you smile in front of your parents however stressed you maybe just to make them happy. Do the same with the creator. Have your selfies clicked on his mind instead of on Instagram and Facebook. These simple things in life will keep you moving and make you a better you.

Mind is a challenge

Mind is a complete challenge for humans. We try to control it.

Every time, we are angry, we stop to scream.

Every time, we are sad, we try not to cry.

Every time, we love, we stop to speak.

Every time, we are betrayed, we, well you know it well.

What the heart does that help us.? Honestly, it does not help but ruin it for worse.

Infact, we are the ones who are responsible for each and every misery of our life. We are ones who create it and thus, we are the ones who need to suffer. Then, why is it that we blame everyone around us for the mistake that we committed. The reason is simple, we do not want to blame us. We do not want to take the responsibilities of taking wrong decisions and then we end up crying and accusing others. But the question is , for how long?

A threshold is to be reached. And it should be reached by the time when you cry infront of all your friends and talk about your miseries. This is the correct time when the threshold is reached. All you need to do is realise it, just for once, realise that the the threshold is reached. Your tears are in vain and nobody is interested in listening to your sad stories. Just move on.

This is what the mind says to the heart every time you hit your pillow. You think about all the super heroes of your childhood. You try to be strong and try not to think at all. But the moment you close your eyes, its all gone. Tears roll down your cheeks and you do nothing but feel terrible. In this process, another night is spent on wet pillows.

Another lazy morning, you do not want to move out of the bed. But the responsibilities take a lead and you finally get out of the bed. You follow the same routine every day.  The same office,  the same people, the same insane conversations. Sometimes, when people talk, inside your mind, you think of running to a place where nobody resides except you. A place where the moonlight lights up your room and the cold wind touches your feet. Where it rains whenever you wish. Where the coffee is just like you wanted. Where food is served with love and where you do not switch off the lights alone.

All this happens in a world where you do not live but intend to live. But actually, a world like this doesn’t exist. You come out of your day dreams and listen back to the insane conversations. Your mind is a big challenge. It takes you to places you have never been and you will never be.

The same way

Standing here I see the sky

Someday blue someday grey

The winds touch the leaves

And passes from my hair  the same way

I close my eyes and lift the face

Spread my hands and pray

Rain drops on my fingers

And falls from the gap the same way

I feel you standing behind me

Turn to hear you say

Your stupid jokes are gone with you

And only emptiness prevails the same way

What comes to you will surely leave

Very little do things stay

Lips don’t smile anymore

And a part of me is lost the same way

I won’t speak

I won’t speak what you want to hear

Because its worthless from what I gauge

You are a freeman who can’t be tamed

But remember I am too not in any cage

The wide blue sky when turns dark

I feel cold outside and inside my heart

I sit by the sea and think about you

It says life is sugar in a big fat cart

What you give is sympathy not love

Show me the man whom I crave

Because my lips won’t speak and my eyes are wet

And you are too far to see me so brave
