Is Art Necessary!

Is there a part of you,

That loves to hum to your favourite tune?

Is there a part of you,

That wants to be a part of a story, you just read through?

Oh child, if all these are true,

Then, art has had it’s effect on you!

Could you just imagine a day now,

Where all you could do is work,

And your life would just go idly by,

No memories, no emotions, even if you’d want to, you couldn’t cry

Because, all you’d be is just a droid with a useless heart!

Music, art and poetry, help us make and shape our soul,

Oh Child, so why do we mock them, for they are the one makes us human!

There are some creations that give us hope,

There are some pieces that help us gain control,

There are some songs that reminds us of our home!

Art is something, connects us all,

Art can bring peace in the midst of a war,

Art is all I could ask for,

Because darling, art is the language of love!

I wouldn’t have heard or seen an artist piece, never has there been a day,

And never will I deny that, their work has changed me in a way.

If you know me or have read my old posts, you may know how much I love art and artists too. Art has changed me, in a way, I could never explain. Art is an essential tool for survival, if you have been following my blog, you’d remember a post wherein, I looked into what would’ve happened if there was no art.

But, why is art important though?

Art is a result of curiosity and satisfaction. A human mind, over the years has used creativity to grow as a species, today, we use that creativity to channel a part of our soul into our creations, that is why we it is easy as a human for us to connect ourselves to any art, be it a song, an art or even a simple poetry.

Art, today has become a food for our soul, and that is why it helps us be ourselves. It helps us be in control and that is why, it ends us giving hope that one day, our life will also be perfect, just like that piece of art.

To put it in a different way, art provides us with a sense of belonging. As, human is a social creature in the end, we love to belong to a group we closely relate ourselves with. And most of the times it wouldn’t be difficult for us to notice that art is just a reflection of our culture.

Art sometimes helps us being emotional. It makes sure our soul has felt something, and when our soul feels something, it makes us more human. We may have created art, but in the end, art is the one that shaped us.

Many artists over the years have left a mark in the human history, but not all may be relevant to our time and lifestyle, so I’d love to leave you with a few words by a couple of great artists:

You could read more about how art affects us through over here:

Why do humans make art!

After I read a lot about how art actually shaped us, I’m proud to say that I’m a fellow artist. Thank you for reading, do let me know what your thoughts on art are! I’ll be back with another post (soon, I hope) until then, #LIVE_yOUR_LIFE and #StandUpForHumanity. I’ll leave it unto you to decide whether art is necessary!

If you can’t stand up, leave.

Sting! Sting! Sting!

My head started to sting!

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.

Relation-SHIP

Relations are really tricky, I mean very tricky to handle and sometimes, when one cannot maintain it, it can loosen-up and sometimes it could break, but on worst cases, it could sink.

I am not going to get deep into it, but there is a small insight I would love to share it with you, which would be right after the poem:

people-2585733_1920

PS. Things written in Italic is said by person A and the one in Bold is person B.

It was a blur, the love we had,

Never had I seen it fade to dust,

I thought, all was based on trust.

Trust I had, so did you,

But, you thought me as a fool,

In the end all I could say,

You were so far away from the truth.

You let us die,

You let the world fill us with lies.

Urgh, stop complaining, all I can hear are your cries.

No, I never let us die.

Stop and listen for a fact that you always deny,

You say you love me, where were you when all I wanted was a ear,

You say we were made for each other, but you argue over every little thing

All you did was made me suffer.

You think, I caused the mess,

But in reality, you wouldn’t worry, for you had your pretty dress.

Yes, happiness I did find, in the smallest of things,

Late at night, when all you wanted was some fun after drinks,

Never did you care what I wanted and what I need,

All you wanted me to do was to make you something for your mouth to feed.

Oh, I didn’t think we had such a deed,

When you came in with all your greed.

I thought you loved me for who I am,

Not for my net worth,

I needed you the most when I lost my career,

But all you did was make me fear.

Fear that you’d leave me alone for me to suffer the pain.

But I acted like that, so you could get back up,

And fight your way to the top,

So, you’d realize things are not given but gained.

And I did that, thinking I didn’t provide you more,

I forgot what emotion was,

And that’s what brought me, such a huge loss.

This may be a short poem, but it recognizes the need to talk among ourselves. We have become so much needy that we end up misinterpreting what other person is trying to convey.

It’s about time we mature up and forget things like, “Hey, you know what, that person hasn’t wished on my birthday, so I won’t wish them.”  Who doesn’t like to be wished on their birthdays! But, that doesn’t mean, we have to be mad at them for forgetting it.

There are reasons why people fail to maintain relationships and number one being CAREER. It’s tough to actually maintain relations, when you have to build up on your dream.

Second, PRIORITIES. Yes, everyone has a priority. I may be a priority to someone, but they may not be on my priority list, but that doesn’t mean that I hate them or I don’t talk with them, I can say that I will be there for them, when they need me.

Third, being the attitude, behaviour and culture. People have different attitudes. Some people love having a dozens of people hanging around with them, while some may prefer being just by them-self or may only want to hang out with a couple. It becomes, difficult to maintain relations with both. Since you may never know, who the former person is close to, or you may never end up knowing their true self. While for the latter, it’s really difficult to get into their zone and making sure they let you stay.

“If you want to maintain a relationship, you have to work hard to maintain it.”

Some may have grown up with the culture that suits them, they might hate a change in their lifestyle, that’s why they choose to be among similar groups.

If you find anything wrong, first talk with them.

Ask them what it is. If the mistake is on you, don’t give excuses and be mature, accept it. If it is not your fault, make them realize their worth.

Make sure, you are there for them, listen to what they have to say, don’t give solutions, you are listening. If they don’t respond, let them be. Give them space and time to heal. If you feel, you cannot wait a long time, that person is not the right person for you. But if you can wait, then you’ll realize how important that person is in your life, make sure you are there when they are ready to heal.

Similarly, if a person doesn’t listen to you, they may be busy with their life, so don’t hate on them. Let them live and find a new ear to rant to, but don’t you let your heart die of hope. If no one is listening, what you feel, let it flow in various other forms. (Not violently though)

I’d love to close off with this statement, “Don’t have any attachments, if you hate being broken.”

Hope you enjoyed this one, will be back with another post, until then, #LIVEyOURLIFE and #BeLive in yourself.

Death is inevitable


Why are we so afraid to die?
While, truly, the whole concept of reality is a lie.
It’d be a simple task to run away,
And it seriously takes huge courage to stay.
Yes, sometimes, life may seem to be dead,
And we fail to realise there’s still an unconquered path ahead.
Sometimes, failure breaks our heart into pieces,
But one who sits idly and mourns over it is the one who actually losses.
Crawl. Walk. Run. Fly. Fall.
Make mistakes, and stand tall.
People may stalk, talk and may also laugh,
Just let them be!
Because, there’s more to you than just being a gossip queen.
That haven’t seen the hell we were raised in,
They won’t realise the pain that we have survived in.
A dead life may seem a better option than hell most of the time,
But well, why not love and serve and get the heaven we truly deserve.
Death ain’t a thing to be scared of,
Like life, it’s a step into a new era,
Not yet discovered and not yet seen.
Maybe that’s why we find death terrifying.
The time we get in between life and death is minimal and equal to most of them,
So, why not do something great and remain a legend,
Instead of being a mystery in the unsearched and unrecorded history.
Death is inevitable, so don’t frighten,
Just live your life and spread peace, because in reality life is beyond what we can imagine. 

Words mend life

“I’ll be there for you till the end.” A promise that brought him back to life.

IMG_20171217_230336_534

Words, simple they seem, but dangerous they are;
It can break a man’s heart, but can also take him far.
Life haunted him everyday,
Death wanted him in every way.

Choice, remained a myth to him,
And his entire life started to dim.
Never had he thought, he would end up like this,
Broken and soulless, like death giving him a kiss.

In the morning, with every sip of coffee
He would feel, people around him were zombies.
Before hitting the bed, every night,
To live or to die, he had to decide.

He wasn’t always like this,
It all started with small things.
Fights, ignorance and rejections,
Leading to bigger ones like death and demotions.

He thought, he had lost it all,
No ear was open for all this to be heard.
He decided to give up, but then he turned back
And was it a coincidence that he did?

No, life has a plan and there was one for him too,
He saw her and he saw his life calling him too,
And the following words were enough to make his heart melt,
“I’ll be there for you till the end.”

Life may be difficult, but don’t make it short. You’ll face challenges you are not ready for, but that doesn’t make you weak. It makes you stronger.

Will be back with another amazing post, until then, LIVE yOUR LIFE and LIFT others HIGHER.

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.

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.

Them or us – Why not both?

Poverty, corruption, and terrorism

Surrounding us, while we live in a slum.

Rules, laws, and regulations

Guarding us, while the powerful have fun.

Dreams are crushed,

Mascaras are smudged,

All we hear is sorry,

And everyone moves on.

Hunger, diseases and deaths,

Pity, only a human faces this, else some action is taken.

All we see, scams and schemes,

Forever, making us run.

One plus one is two,

Unity is strength, we understood all that in grade two,

You still don’t get this,

What is wrong with you?

Gave you all the resources,
Trusted you with all our scars

Finally someone to heal them,

Well, the joke’s on us, since all we got was loss.

You promised us things,

You promised us hope,

Why do you do this?

Why do you fake things like this?

Stop blaming others

And give us what we need.

We didn’t deserve the pain you gave

And certainly didn’t need the plans you made.

Happiness and peace is what we need now,

Please stop running,

Life is a marathon.

Why keep the frown!

Killing, hating, stealing, and raping,

We are humans, so please stop this

Desperation and expectations

Disappointing they may be, but worth the wait they are.

All we dream is of a better world,

Where all have basic needs

All are at peace

And we smile knowing life is beyond everything what we think.

All this is possible only when we come together,

Please remember, we have the power.

To change and make this world better 

Forever and ever!

With many problems happening around the world, it actually pains my heart to know only few dare or even care to speak about it.

Stop blaming everyone, and start doing something yourself about it first. People may follow you later on.

Truly, life is beyond what we think. So please, stop spreading hate and start loving.

Let me know what you think of it. I’ll be back with another amazing post, until then #LIVEyOURLIFE!
