Are We Really Free!

Are we really free?

29,1

                Modern times; Modern thought, yet living in hypocrisy.

                Democracy prevails; Democracy is the key, yet restrictions still lives.

                He does this; She does that, still a concern for the society that’s lazy.

                Oh what a pity, we don’t follow the order, because that’s the dream, it seems.

                Born a boy, be an engineer or auditor, it’s fixed.

                Or join the family business, you shouldn’t argue with this.

                Born a girl; Love, you are lucky to be born!

                So, go ahead and study medicine or do arts, that would be enough,

                Argue with this, and you’d be married off.

                *Society does a witty laugh*

                “Oh, I have an idea!” said an over-excited teen,

                “Follow the system or you’ll break your spleen!”

                “I’d love to live here; I’d love to study here; I’d love to work here!”

                “You’re required to a pay a small processing fees my dear.”

                “Oh, such a gifted voice you have, it’s sad you are doing a job” said every other aunty

                ‘Weren’t you the one to advice me that I won’t succeed and forced my parents for a job’ thought the young lady.

                “Come home by 9.” Said a concerned mom to her daughter,

                “But, why does he get to stay out the whole night.” She pointed her finger towards her brother!

                ‘Apparently, men are victims of rape’ society believes!

                “Raise them to respect women!”

                “Oh you are so weak, a guy doesn’t cry. Don’t be such a sissy.”

                ‘I’m a human, and we do end up being emotional at some point of time.

                But, why it is okay to be a tomboy but to be a sissy is not okay!’

                “He loves him. She loves her. He loves her. She loves him.”

                Wish love was this simple. But some believe it is unnatural.

                There’s a ban on spreading love, what’s tomorrow, it’s sophistical.

                One can’t have a say on what one should eat,

                Wait, was it mentioned that it’s a democratic nation we live in?

                Why throw the garbage in dust bin?

                Doing everything illogical and not calling it a sin,

                Well that’s something.

                Let’s see how the story ends;

                “Hey, I have an opinion!” shouted a common man.

                “Your voice will die, just like the others did.” Whispered thousands of men!

Oh, we are definitely free!

                Wars are fought; hatred is spread. Why is it necessary?

                Live in peace and come together, isn’t that what humanity is supposed to be?

                30.1 copy

                This may not be a situation everywhere, but it is a major concern. Please don’t turn a blind eye towards these concerns. Development takes place by coming together, not by killing each other!

              Do let me know what you think of this. You are welcome to share it! Will be back with another post. Until then just LIVEyOURLIFE!

Suicide – Does it really help?

Screaming with some pain,
Singing my sorrow song,
I was going along,
Because, everyone drove me insane.
Never had I thought, my life would be such a mess,
With every turn, I get filled up with stress.
Why oh why, don’t we have a button to alert any distress!

It’s about time that I had confessed.

They say, “A friend in need is a friend indeed”.
So, I want you to listen, just once I plead.
You always have something to say,
But to hear me out, not even an heed you’d pay.

I hit rock-bottom years ago, when people started to ignore me,
I tried to fit in, because, people not doing that were tagged silly.
Every time I felt the urge to be funny,
They would look back at me, I swear, it was always scary.

Develop sense of humour, you said.
But, to insult someone’s dignity, and lose my respect,
These things are actually worse than death.
I’d prefer staying in hell, if humans don’t learn.
I tried to be perfect by not talking out about my depression,
But, by the time I understood the need to heal,
It had almost won.

Those tearless cries,
Those noiseless screams,
Dull was the feeling portrayed by every colour
And I felt the need to kill myself every other hour.

My dreams, my passion, were of no importance, I could see,
But to watch them being burned down alive, tore my soul
No one to talk to, no one to be with, being an introvert,
It was supposed to be my heaven.
But, this was a misery that I wish no one should face.

No other option felt better than to give up,
But just the day before I planned to leave this place,
Hope was given to me by the person I expected the least
She did look like a cold-hearted person, but her heart melted when she found her one,
‘Patience’ is a virtue that will give you a huge reward, I realized that day.
And hope is something, you should never abandon on the way.

Thus, my journey to a great life began.
With the love of my life who saved a soul from doing a horrid mistake,
Suicide is the worst option,
To get out of depression.
And to hang oneself or to tease others,
Is not considered as fun!


  Suicide, today has become a rising issue. It may seem the easiest option to end all troubles, but please before you do consider that, think about your family, friends or colleagues. They may hate you for taking such a decision. If you don’t have anyone to talk to, you can contact the helpline services that are available. If you are not comfortable with that, you can very well contact us. We will be very happy to be your friend and help you out in dealing in a crisis.

  To others, Mental health is a major health concern that has to be given equal or more importance to, since kids learn from adults. We as a society must make sure, everyone is happy and everyone is in peace both physically and mentally. So, if you can’t help a person in such stages, at least don’t tease them or torture them.

  Please, spread the message. There is always hope. There is always love. Spread Love, Spread Hope and Spread Life.

“…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”
― Vincent Van Gogh

  Do let us know your views on mental illness, stress management and depression.

  We will be back with another post. So stick around and #LIVEyOURLIFE.

A scar of war.

Lost in the world of the hate, a lone lady tried to survive.

Every day she’d toil so hard, with a fear of being shot at alive anytime.

Running around, doing her chores, she never bothered about anyone,

Except for her sick and bed-ridden love, trying to recover.

He may have been the best of his regime, but he lost his future forever,

That’s what the world thought of that war veteran.

Fighting in his fifth battle, colder became his aggression;

Becoming more wise, he started to become more human.

A novice, a friend, entered his the field with passion,

Without realising he was entering into a trap,

He would have lost his life if it weren’t for his old chap.

Our man almost lost his life trying to protect a life of his comrade.

His friend, tried everything to make his life better,

But alas, the path of violence always ends up being bitter.

They understood the values, they once thought, that never made sense.

The idea of kindness and spreading happiness,

Oh the benefits of non-violence!

Although our veteran was paralyzed, he believed life goes on when there’s hope.

“Oh darling, why didn’t you choose a life, that had a better scope?”

The wife cried when she heard he’d never be able to walk again,

“Love, dying for protecting people I love is an honour;

But sometimes, it requires the ability to bear forever, a scar.

But, why I did choose this path, I shall never regret.

But if I don’t spread the idea of peace, that feeling would be worse than death.”

The concept of violence and hatred has destroyed lives of millions over the years.  It’s time we wake up and be the human we actually are.

It’s time to #StandUpForHumanity. Share your views and thoughts on this and spread happiness wherever you see fit, because we already have many haters. Love is all we need now and forever.

I’ll be back with yet another amazing post, until then, just #LIVEyOURLIFE.

Forgive – A Poem for humanity

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

To understand,

Is to forgive.

To err is human

And “I’m perfect” says no man.

Mistake is not a mistake if you do it once

But it is important if one learns

From that mistake.

If you forgive that soul

Your soul shall rock and roll,

While the other person’s soul might swim in a lake.

As we forgive

We’ll be able to live

And we would start seeing

The deeper side of everything

It’s an art of self-realization

And it’s truly fun

Just forgive the people who hurt you

Not for their sake, but for yours.

Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.

~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

 

Let me know your views in the comments section below and share it to spread the act and knowledge of forgiveness! Will be back with another post until then, LIVE yOUR LIFE!

Be Positive

BE POSITIVE

As days pass by

There are a lot who cry,

When asked the reason,

They state their tension,

It seems, they wait for their pension,

For this they are sacrificing the present fun.

So why worry about the future problems, be still,

And carry on the calmness as a windmill,

Those worries won’t eat you,

As The reality, it is an illusion.

All your dreams can come true,

If you be positive.

By following your passion

Only then you’d able to live.

None knows that he may live tomorrow,

So just stay positive,

When you do so, your future worries shall be nil,

As The Buddha says, “what your mind can conceive,

It can achieve”

So kill the negativity,

Which kills you,

And attract positivity,

And your life shall be manifested as the one which is mighty,

Where you shall be happy.

You just have to refine your every possible thought,

And this is the key thing one has to be taught.

When you have been positive and been calmed,

At that time you shall never be harmed.

But beware, it is what you believe is manifested,

So be what you need to be,

And trust in the lord and do act, then you shall see,

Whatever you’ve dreamt,

Along with your wishes and goal, shall be met!

A Leader

A LEADER

A leader is like a seed of plant

He can turn a stone into gold

For him, nothing is new, or old

He helps people achieving a life which is grand.

“He is the one who knows the way,

Goes the way and shows the way”

And is also capable of winning everyday.

 

A leader motivates you at every step,

So that you can win every second

He knows that success comes after many failures

And also knows that it takes lots of efforts

He grabs you when you fall down

And will never let you drown.

He knows that life, for sure, gives us a crown.

 

A leader knows that life is a simple maze,

And says that life is not a big race.

He knows that life is full of twists and turns

And at every step a man learns

He knows that it is foolish to chase after the prize,

Because only the Lord knows where it lies.

A leader will take any risk, just to make your life bright,

Until you give him your trust and show your will to fight.

Never Quit!!

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to try just one more time!!”
~ Thomas A. Edison

Hey People!! Just imagine, you’re going to your dream destination (let’s name it Destination D) and you start from Destination A. You keep going, and all of a sudden you stop at C, and you realise that the fuel tank is empty. What would you do at this situation?
a) Return home (which is really far)
b) Sit there and cry.
c) Go and fill the tank and keep moving forward and live your life-long dream..

The best thing to do would be to fill your tank and keep moving.

The same thing applies in one’s life too. You might not know how close you are to success. It doesn’t hurt if you face obstacles during your journey. That’s life. You cannot succeed everytime. Edison is the best example I could give. The more you fail, the more you learn.

“You have not succeeded, if you haven’t failed even once”

Every thing would have a positive and negative effect. If you only look at the negative side of everything, how will you even think of moving forward? If you don’t have the faith in a thing, how would you even work with it? If you think that something you really wanted to do as a child, reqiures huge money and time and hard work or anyother excuse you could make of, how do even you expect to live your life? Don’t blame it to the fate!! Only when you give some of your effort, you would go ahead. And when you reached the destination, you would look back and think why you were such a stubborn person and unwilling to follow your dreams. Only when you follow your dreams, you would be happily successful. If you follow other’s dream, you would be successfully happy! It’s your life. You must choose what you want to be in life!!

“If you look for the light in evrything, you would often find it. But if you look for the dark, that is all you will ever see.”
~ Uncle Iroh.

You must be consciously and subconsciously aware of the life you want!
Because:

“Your mind can be your greatest ally or your worst enemy!”
~ Katara from Legend of Korra

Everything in life depends on what you think, how you react to every situation and your determination.

“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”
~ Vince Lombardi.

You might feel deterred to fear of failure. You might feel failing would make you some devil of the society.
This is the thing what the current education system has gifted us. It doesn’t let us make mistakes. Only when you make mistakes, you would learn from it. Instead we are punished for making mistakes.
No man is perfect.
Life is a game, sometimes one wins and the rest lose, but there’s always a second chance. You learn new things every time.

“If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit”
~ William J. Clinton

A scientist doesn’t discover anything in his first attempt, it takes him hundreds of experiments to do it.

“Even in despair, you must never give in to the situation and only that refers to inner strength!”
~ Uncle Iroh.

Never abandon hope.

Never give up.

Never quit.

I have a small poem on this:

An unending journey

I was abandoned,
I was tortured,
Only because I wanted to do something of my own.
So, I left my home.
People hated me,
Only because I wanted to be free.
I couldn’t bear this and I started a small journey..

I travelled places and learned about different cultures,
And that got rid of my prior tortures.
People said that was the end, but I did not hear.
People wanted me to fear,
And wanted me to shed a tear,
But I didn’t bother and chased my destiny,
And all this made it an amazing journey..

I trusted the Lord and trusted my soul,
To achieve my life-long goal.
The child in me was about to die,
But I dared to keep it alive.
Everything I did bothered the society,
But I just did my work patiently.
There were many things I learned from the selfless people I met,
Spreading peace and living happily that was what the life meant.
They taught me one thing and asked me to spread it to every clan,
Life is a simple maze,
People who feared have made it a big race.
Live a life in a way no one else can,
Because Time and Tide wait for no man.
This is why I left my home,
An unending journey, only that could have made my life whole.
I thank the Lord for giving me the freedom,
Without that, those messages, I wouldn’t have learned.
An unending journey is a gift which can change your life,
Because the lessons you learn, would help you to thrive.
Never quit avid never give up,
That’s what you learn, if you wish to learn.
Take up an unending journey to follow your dreams,
Because, life is not what it may seem!

~ Amith Chhabria.

P.S.: The guy who started Victora’s Secret sold his company and jumped off a bridge before it became Victoria’s secret!
I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then follow your dreams and never give up and just LIVE yOUR LIFE!
