Trapped in my own soul,
Is this what I thought was my goal!
Certainly not, for doing that would only make me a fool!
Then where was the point I went wrong,
That’s a question for which an answer I’ve been wanting to find for long,
Alas, only if I had been strong.
While I say all these, all I can remember are those times,
Where all those dreams were young and everything seemed nice!
All I am left with, is a land filled with lies!
Running down the streams,
The irresistible feeling on my face, when I’m hit with a breeze!
Fighting all day and none getting offended,
Such days, now are just another dead end!
Trapped in my own soul,
Can’t find a single space, to get out of this black hole!
Everyday, I’ve been asking where I had gone away!
Yet, I still remember those days, when my imagination would go stray
And that would always make my day,
All I can see today is butts of cigarettes mixed with ash in the tray!
Coming back home while the clocks struck seven,
Delicious appetizers made hot by my mum, would always remind me of a time that was truly a heaven!
Those were some days, when innocence was a great trait,
Happiness and love never had any template!
Can I get back my childhood,
For now that I stand where my parents stood,
Looking up to my parents,
Today I realise all that they’ve done for me,
Has a value that no one can ever see!
I only hope people would realise this too,
Looking through these characters and illusions!
Living in fear from the senseless superstitions!
Today I fear for every time I try to rhyme,
For getting laughed at is a feeling worse than getting caught for a crime,
But as a child, I would have said things without any filter,
And everything would would be straight from the heart, that I always said without any stutter!
Even if the world laughed, I’d be proud that I had spread laughter,
For every thing around me, makes me want to slaughter!Can I get back that childhood of mine,
Where all I had was love and smile!
By the time you read this, I’d be away
Where there’s an everlasting day!
Been trapped in my own soul,
All that happened because, I never let the child in me become whole!
At that moment I knew,
And I say this to you;
If you had to live for someone,
Live for that child in you!
For he hoped a great deal of you!
In the end, keeping that child in us alive could help us survive!
Let me know your thoughts on this! Will be back with another great post!
All I could do was let that hideous thought, kill my spirit,
I write my feelings out,
But then there comes in this guy
Being all smart and sick,
“Stop trying to get attention!”
Perhaps, your skull is so thick,
Can’t you understand,
Your one word may foever leave a mark.
One may be a Tony Stark,
Or even an Arya, hell even Sansa Stark!
Every one has to face struggle and sometimes they need help.
So, stop trying to be the cool guy with an attitude,
Playing with someone’s feelings, you are a fool.
We know you care for none but yourself,
But at least, use your peanut sized brain,
Oh wait, I forgot you lost your sesne of humanity,
Sometimes, it takes time to develop an immunity, for your stupidity.
Grow up and stop normalizing bullying and shaming.
For you never know, your child may be next.
If you can’t love or stand up for someone,
Just sit or better yet leave their space, for that ain’t no crime.
Hey everyone, I was actually working on something else, but these verse actually came into my mind, so I continued with them.
I’ve voiced a lot of times against bullying and shaming. Well, the response I’ve received for those is actually mixed. I wonder why!
Most of them who read them, agreed to the fact that bullying and shaming need to be stopped. That’s good, isn’t it?
Perhaps, but, we have a lot on stake. There were people who actually felt, bullying and shaming is just a form of joke that a kid needs for them to become strong.
Big and huge person, with six senses and a highly developed brain, say what!!
No, nope, ne, non, nein, net, nahi.
I know people personally who have gone through bullying and shaming. It leaves a huge scar on their life for ever. If left ignored, it creates a huge hole in their life that it makes them unable to fill it up, and when it is too late, no amount of help is enough.
When someone actually conjures the strength to actually move on, and ask for help, it is our duty as a human to actually help them, no matter who they are.
I started this blog just for this purpose.
Parents, especially need to start intervening into these matters.
Also, I’d love to point out that there’s no social skill or any professional skilll to be gained by actually shaming people, except maybe a few laughs here and there with a pinch of popularity among your so called “friends”. But believe me, the hatred the victim may have for you, is nothing compared to that.
In one of my previous posts, I had mentioned how CBSE had taken action on Bullying and many colleges have banned ragging. But, I have not seen any development since then. It’s like all the media and the government is interested in, is animals.
Will be back with an amazing post; until then, #LIVEyOURLIFE and #STANDUPFORHUMANITY.
Time changes everything. Have you ever heard this?
If you are living in this world, there is 95% chance you would have heard it.
Now, the real question is, does it really change everything?
My answer is a total no. Time changes nothing. As I have already mentioned in some of my previous posts, time is an illusion. It is just a thing we created for us to operate efficiently.
So, why does a thing which is a complete myth, become popular?
We are lazy. I mean, seriously, look at it this way; people love to judge and criticise, but not all are professional critics, so we end up jumping to conclusions.
Jack and James may have been fighting for a long time. People end up saying, in time they will stop fighting. No time will bring anyone closer, only communication will.
We, as a society have grown to this myth and this stereotypical answer.
Jenna: Hey Gina, how are you?
Gina: Not good, a bit depressed.
Jenna: Chill, time will heal everything.
Nope, the appropriate answer would be, to ask and listen to the cause and the problem and help them get through with it.
Vince: Hey man, how’s things with Rey? I heard you had a huge fight.
Hugh: Not good man, I don’t want to talk to Rey.
Vince: Chill bruh, times change, things change, life will become better.
Again, nope. The better response would be, “What’s wrong, let me help you out? Or at least let me talk to Rey. Only when people communicate, matters can solve.”
It’s as simple as it can get. We have become selfish and lazy. Most of the humanity today is more concerned with the cash in their hand, than the bread on their plate.
We act as if everything is fine with the world. Thinking time will heal everything. In this case, it would, by killing us all. I may be harsh, but if that’s what going to get everyone to work for the world, so be it.
Media would lie to us, society would lie to us, education system may lie to us, but never forget the fact that, we have eyes and ears too. We can see the level at which humanity has fallen to today (Do I really need to tell you all the problems we are facing today) . If people still think, we are fine. Let them live in this myth. But we need to stop living a lie.
Time won’t change anything unless we actually want to change.
Some may ask, “What can a person without power and money do?”
We are the same sane people that unnecessarily make unwanted topics and people trend and popular. I wonder, if only someone were to add a bit of insanity in each of us, we may actually do something.
For the basics, start small:
Educate people of their worth.
Remind them of their true power.
Stop complaining and fighting amongst each other.
Open your minds and actually see what the problems of the society are.
Contribute your part towards building a better future.

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.
No matter how petty it is.
It is capable of achieving great things.
Hope you liked this one. Do give in your views in the comment section below, will be back with another amazing post, until then #LIVEyOURLIFE. Go ahead and like and share this post and #StandUpForHumanity.
Board exams are round the corner and so is the stress. One of the main reasons people take stress is because, they have been living for others. It’s time we realise this and start living for oneself.
People, these days, say they don’t get the feel to study and I keep wondering why does this happen, but to tell the truth, no one can motivate anyone to study.
Why is it so? Because, knowledge is infinite, and in fact the more you think you know, the lesser you actually know.
It is great to learn from every field, but to study, I don’t think that would be a good idea.
Coming back to the boards, we have limited our knowledge to the academic experiences but there are many things happening right now, that is not at all included in the academic system.
Why is it so? Because, this was designed many years ago for a common purpose and for common people, not for a particular person.
So, ask yourself now, what do you love? Space? Then, take a book on astronomy and read it. Because, your academic book, contains only a limited amount of information.
In reality, if you have love for something, you’ll stop at nothing to know more about that thing.
There’s this quote I read somewhere, “You are unique, just like everyone else.”
This might be funny, but it is the truth. You need to look inside to be what you want to be.
“One who looks outside, dreams. One who looks inside, awakes.” ~Carl Jung
As I mentioned earlier, I’m not here to ask you to do anything, I’m here to help you remind your true self.
“You must look within yourself to save yourself from your other self only then will your true self reveal itself.” ~Zuko
To those having their boards and to their parents, one can’t hug their marks to the grave. So smile, learn and lead. Because, there might be a dying artist in the kid who couldn’t score marks and to those guys who make a mess, only for missing a full score by a mark or two, just look through the eyes of a failure. Don’t freak out, keep calm, do what you love and please don’t compare.
Society, why do you bother about it? When you live in a place where you are offered freedom, why do you hesitate to do what you love? When you did something bad, you didn’t bother about them, then why do you think when you are doing something good? So, don’t blame them for your loss.
And finally, I conclude, I feel, people study only under two situations, either they live in a misconception or they want to achieve something.
Make sure, when you come here next time, make sure you are happy and ready to live out loud. Until then, just LIVE yOUR LIFE and Believe and chase down your passion.
Hello again people!! As you know, I had mentioned in my previous post that the present education system is destroying our creativity.. They judge the students by their memory power.. They ask the students to read about things that happened way in the past and write them as it was described in the book!! Now seriously, Newton didn’t find the laws of motion for people to byheart them, he just wanted that the world should know that “for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction” so that people might be aware of it!!
Now for another example, you give the descriptions, history and parts required for making the world’s first TV to few engineers and technicians and ask them to write whatever they read within a time limit, this is an example of what is taught in colleges, but what people will ask during a job interview “what is the essential thing for making an LCD TV??”
I’ve even seen some high schools, which encourage students to byheart and write a whole book and keep them away from all kinds of activities like sports, literature, arts and crafts etc..
They then encourage them to take up jobs in MNCs which leads to unemployment of many people due to less vacancies!!
Schools should encourage people to become creative in the fields the students are passionate about!!
The schools should develop the leadership skills in every student, I’ve seen some staff being partial to the students they know personally and ignore all the other students!!
They should help the students to realise what they want to become..
WAKE UP PEOPLE, all this has to CHANGE!!
We need an education system which encourages creativity!!
Students should not be punished for making mistakes!! Not Everyone has the same level of memory power!! This system is making us robots, because they select what we should learn, this is not freedom, we must have the freedom to select what we should learn!! This is a thing also to be noted by parents!! One can’t force anybody to learn what they cannot learn!! If one does, the Student might not be happy in doing that!!
And again I say, we are humans not robots!!
I remember posting this in my old blog a few months ago.. After that, the video song Anu Aunty – The engineering anthem, by Varun Agarwal came out… Then, another video song named Don’t Stay in School by David Brown came out… Both the songs went totally viral on the net, the reason, everyone knows what the value of one’s dream is.. We can’t just do a thing, because our neighbour did it..
I love these quotes made by Stephen Hawking:
However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
I’m not saying school is bad. I am not saying education isn’t necessary. What I’m trying to imply here is that education is necessary, but no one should be forced to learn what one doesn’t want to learn. If you think this education system is great, then why do kids hate going to school?
The answer is simple. They are punished for not being able to answer a question properly or for getting low marks. Seriously?! Marks do not define us. Neither does talent. It is the attitude that we have towards any problem we face defines us who we are.
Life is a beautiful gift. It is a great teacher. If we give it a chance, we can learn things that this education system can not teach us. I’ve have only developed my mental side throughout my schooling, but that doesn’t get balanced until I develop the spiritual side in me.
Those things I’ve learned only due to anime. I still remember a quote of Mewtwo from the first Pokemon movie:
“I’ve realised that the circumstances of one’s birth are irrelevent, it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who YOU are”
I’ve seen people, who were multi-talented during their childhood. They always topped the class and they performed really well in college and their job. When they come across problems, all they say is, “It’s all fate!” The reason? They were not taught how to face their problems.
I feel, to give true education, no one should have any selfishness. True education must not only develop our mental skill and spirituality but also our problem facing skills and creativity..
This system has not produced many people who had a broad and open mind. Many have forgotten how to even enjoy the life, they just get busy doing nothing.
John Taylor Gatto once said:
“When you take the free will out of education, that turns it into schooling.”
I love how Ralph Waldo Emerson stated:
“We are students of words: we are shut up in schools, and colleges, and recitation -rooms, for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bag of wind, a memory of words, and do not know a thing.”
We all are educated that Edison created the light bulb, but we weren’t taught how he became rich and how many before him had invented or tried to invent the light bulb.
Mahatma Gandhi once stated:
I find daily proof of the increasing and continuing wrong being done to the millions by our false de-Indianizing education. These graduates who are my valued associates themselves flounder when they have to give expression to their innermost thoughts. They are strangers in their own homes.
Parents only know that it will help the boy to earn money. And this satisfies them. If this situation lasts long, we might all become foreigners! What is worse even the Swaraj for which we are struggling may become foreign in character when we finally get it, with the result that the very burden under which we are crushed today may continue even after Swaraj. There is only one way to escape this danger. It is to change and overhaul our system of education. In the national education to be evolved.
It is my firm opinion that no culture has treasures so rich as ours has.
Seriously, one can’t judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, Similarly not everyone has the same capability of memorizing things.
Teach, Education is necessary, but forcing them to remember ten thousand things and asking the students to write it down without missing a single letter, is same to destroying creativity.
I have friends who are great artists (which includes dancers, singers, musicians, actors, comedians, writers, poets, photographers, etc..) but they do not follow that only because they feel they are born to get their living only through working as an employee for any company, if this goes on, there would not be any entertainers, writers, or even a blogger like me.. The Internet is a great platform, where one can connect with a person who is living in another time zone, but I’ve seen people who curse it and state that it destroys creativity.. Well, I don’t have any right in telling you what to do. I just want to show you that there is a better way of living life, happily, there are different ways to earn money, if you like working as an employee, it’s good, if you want to follow your dream, it’s good. There are many different ways of living a life, but live the life that you want to, not because anyone asks you to.. And let me tell you a quote that Oscar Wilde made:
“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.”
Alert Einstein has said a lot about this education system:
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.
I would like to know your opinion on this system too.
Educate yourself and Live happily or get Educated and do what the world wants you to do.
