Peace – Do we deserve it!

Human. 

A petty little creature it is.

Prays only when it falls,

Never working to find out the cause.

Laughs and dances all night long.

Starts bashing and boasting as soon as it’s dawn.

Peace it needs,

But does it deserve, is the question.

Hell and tortures we brought unto ourselves,

So, stop demanding like we are a princess.

We brag of human rights and equality,

But there are some still dying of hunger and are still thirsty,

And all we do is say, “Oh, what a pity!”

A man expresses his feelings, by crying,

Gets bashed, for being a sissy. 

Oh, but look at that tomboy, whom we end up complimenting.

She expresses her opinion but is ignored totally.

He gives the same opinion and is rewarded, well, that’s funny,

Because, this is what we call equality.

Humanity, someone says it exists,

But, wasn’t he the one who was back-bitching about one of his “ex-es”!

A child gets bullied, ain’t that fault of the bully’s parent?

“Oh no, why would we teach our kids to bully!”

Er, you could teach them not to do that!

Or presumably help them sort their mental health out!

We criticize the victims of rape and harrasments being weak,

But, never have we understood the necessity to teach.

Teach your child, it’s not okay to hurt others, mentally and physically.

Teach them the need of responsibility.

Only then, we will be free.

Only then, we will truly deserve peace.

Also, Teach the one you know, those drugs would end up being costly.

If they don’t listen, let them go, you don’t need that kind of negativity. 

Human.

No matter how petty it is.

It is capable of achieving great things.

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!

Being an Artist

Being an artist is such a bore, people say. But is it?

image

No, not at all. We artists have our own world and there is a reason for it and it is simple. It’s the people around us. Today there are many artists struggling to make a name out there.
Why are they struggling?
There are tons of new pieces of art that is created everyday. Among them, few are famous. The rest, their art just fades away in no time.
Why does that happen?
As I said, it’s the company they keep.
To all those artists,
You are amazing. Yes, you are no matter what others tell you so. You are a messenger from the universe. You carry a message and that message comes from your soul to your masterpiece.
You can’t give up just because your friends, family, relatives or even a neighbour tells it is a waste of time.
Being an introvert myself, I’ve faced a lot. There are only a handful of friends who want to see my writing. The rest, they don’t bother with what I do. They have their own world.
I don’t have the rights to judge their lives, but reality, it’s just an illusion. So, why go after something that isn’t even real. Find your true friends and well, make sure you abandon the rest. We introverts are a paradox. We may love your company but we wouldn’t want to be with you for a longer period of time. Although we remain aloof, we can be the best friend to a person who really connects with us, but why? Because, we have no one except ourselves. So, a piece of advice to the friends of such introverts. Please, encourage their art, spread it. Get them in your group but make sure there isn’t much crowd because they get bored easily there. Help them feel what it means to be alive. But, make sure you have them some space, they’d appreciate it.
Being an extrovert is just as tough. An extrovert can’t stay at the same place for a longer period of time. Their adventure is the key to their art. They want to explore, discover places which are beautiful not only to look at but also to feel. They portray the best piece from the soul that was there, not the eyes that saw it.
It’s really difficult in this age to just go on an adventure. We have commitments. We have responsibilities. We have duties. I really don’t know what to say but the best thing would be do what is right. Previously, I mentioned, reality is an illusion, if you really don’t bother about it and just want to explore then, go ahead, only your soul has the right to stop you. But let me get this straight, don’t lose your respect and character during this.
People who are friends with such people, please find joy in what they do, they’ll love it. Adventure is an amazing sport for them, so, head out with them for a journey for a day or two. You’ll learn a lot since life is all about the journey. But, trust them. Trust their instincts if they are confident about it.

I really don’t know, how I covered psychology in this, but being an artist is really tough. But that’s the key. If art were easy, it would not be art. On the contrary, art is easy if you trust your soul. Let it flow. Journey is going to be tough, don’t give up. Start it and everything will fall into place.

If you want to be loved, then do what sells. If you want to be a legend, do what your soul tells.

I hope you learned something from this. Do let me know what your views are on this in the comment section below. I’ll be back with another inspiring post, until then LIVE yOUR LIFE.

P.S.: You can also read one of my previous post where I conducted a survey what would happen if there wasn’t art and why it is necessary from the link below:
Life without Art!

Life without ART!

“PAINTING IS JUST ANOTHER WAY OF KEEPING A DIARY!”
~PABLO PICCASSO

image

Answer this:

How would it be if there would not be any laughter? How would it feel if no one had a sense of humour?
Any thought on that?? Good, Bad or worst??

If your answer is any way in positive, I feel sorry for you…
Anyhow, I want to ask you another question…

What if there was no art in it??

Yes, ART… It could be in any form dance, music, literature, painting, etc..

I asked few people the same question!

I’m combining the answers altogether:

“Art is about self-expression and creativity. Creativity gave birth to everything currently… And if there was no art, there would have been a great void in the world; it would have made the world colourless.  For example, “Wheel” it may look like a small circled thing, but the invention of it gave birth to transportation; it helped textile industry, electricity and many things.
No art means thinking inside the box, in short keeping the human brain locked up in a prison. That way, there would be no creativity. When there’s no creativity, there would be no innovation that would stop the progress in any field!
Human being has a bundle of wants; art plays a vital role in satisfying it! We require music, books etc., to keep us entertained! Sometimes they also help us get out of depression; it is a friend that stays with us no matter what.
Human beings are given an upper hand for a simple reason, they are creative, and a human himself is an art! A beautiful creation! If we take out the creativity, what would be the difference between humans and the other animals?
In Simpler words, Life Without Art is similar to life without breath.”

The best part was, no one gave similar answer. Everyone had something different to answer. It is not surprising that no two people gave similar answer to even what art is…

You can compare different dictionaries, not many words would be given similar definition.
So, that shows how important art is! We have lived in this world for millenniums… The reason why we have come this far is only because of art…

You might be wondering, ‘how can everyone answer for the support of creativity?’

Well, I asked people of different age groups! Out of all the people who answered the question, only one person had something against creativity. That person said, “Everything has a positive and a negative effect. Creativity is just expanding our thinking capacity. Good creativity led to the discovery of pen whereas bad creativity led to the discovery of weapons. It’s just how one uses the power. So, in one way the absence of creativity might lead to no peace, no harmony, whereas it might end up the production of things which are harmful to us.”

To that I want to answer one thing, if weapons weren’t discovered there would have not been any human kind alive, the early men used the weapons for protection from dangerous creatures. Now, we might not require any weapons, but that guy said it himself, it all depends on how you use it.
A friend of mine asked me, “Hey, you scored amazing marks, why aren’t you trying in any top 10 colleges?”

C’mon, marks won’t keep you happy. Yes, my mark is good, I could have gotten in few of those top colleges, but why should I select them? Where ever I end up going, all I would do is dig into my creativity.

“ART IS THE MOST INTENSE FORM OF INDIVIDUALISM THAT THE WORLD HAS KNOWN.”
~OSCAR WILDE

We have ended up with a generation in which, 50% of the population doesn’t even know they are creative, 25% are aware of their creativity but are following the society and who end up calling the successful people “lucky”, 15% want to follow their passion but they don’t just because of what the society would think, the remaining 10% of the population are the one who chase their passion and encourage their as well as everyone’s creativity.
Ever heard of this?

“YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF YOUR OWN DESTINY”
~Swami Vivekananda

When something is created, the person who makes it doesn’t start with the direct idea of making it, he feels something has to be made for this reason, for example, the creator of umbrella wanted to make something to save him from getting wet or to escape the extreme heat, that’s when his creativity kicked in!

“THE AIM OF ART IS TO REPRESENT NOT THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE OF THINGS, BUT THEIR INWARD SIGNIFICANE.”
~ ARISTOTLE

Art acts the same way salt acts to food, but the only difference is, the more the art, the happier may the life be! Art is just like meditating, it brings out the feelings of the inner soul, which is very hard to describe. That’s the reason why it is difficult for people to describe, poems, songs, paintings etc., in words, it reflects the inner language!

If people would make their passion to their profession, the world might be a better place or the least they could do is encourage others, instead of criticizing it! The path may be difficult, harsh and may seem impossible to reach, but the journey, the life is worth the pain!
I almost forgot one of the best sayings on art:

“EARTH WITHOUT ART IS JUST ‘EH’!”
~Unknown.

Few days back, I met one of my cousins after a gap of around 10 years, almost at the end of the conversation, he asked me, “You don’t talk much?” I simply answered, “Ha-ha! Being a poet, I let my poems do the talking!”
In my words, everyone is a born as a poem and goes on becoming a poet when he starts to live the life!

“IF ART IS TO NOURISH THE ROOTS OF OUR CULTURE SOCIETY MUST SET THE ARTIST FREE TO FOLLOW HIS VISION WHERE-EVER IT TAKES HIM.”
~ JOHN F. KENNEDY

So, art and creativity do play a major role in this world.. But it also matters how you one uses it!
I thank everyone who gave in their opinion… Do tell, what your opinion is.. I’ll be back with another amazing post.. Until then, just LIVE yOUR LIFE!
