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!

Error 404: Democracy!

I try my best to live my life,

You come up to me, selling all these lies,

Killing my hope and trying to blow my mind.

Honestly, the fact that, you think I’m a threat,

Made me realise, I’m already perfect.

Stop your unnecessary hatred, for I know art is the need of the hour,

Let us be and let us bring that art to life, which you want to censor.

Oh my, that hurts your tolerant brain,

Oh my, but you said the idea of intolerance is just in our brain!

Scaring us of, by attempting to hurt us and our family,

Man, now this just crosses the line, silly.

I tried to stay out of this cat-fight,

But it’s about time, I bring these facts in to the light.

Freedom may be just a myth,

Cause, privacy doesn’t even exist.

PS. Did I mention this applies to those only who are innocent!

“Let the crime happen,

Then let’s blame everyone else, it’d be fun.

We’ll slide in to those DM’s by our media,

Cause, who on earth actually cares about sources!

Solving the problem temporarily, is how we roll,

Ruling for 5 years, indefinitely is our goal.

Development will be provided, to our team,

And let’s give the public a new topic to bash about.”

I’m sick and tired of the politicizing of the smallest of things,

Well, what can we expect from the people who would actually prefer an animal to a human.

Here’s a newsflash guys, humans are animals too,

Large species eat smaller species,

That’s simple science!

Sorry, you guys may not understand that,

Maybe because, one of you believe, artificial satellites existed centuries ago.

We gave the world zero,

But you make us look zero.

Then there those, who feel nepotism rocks.

Why is it so hard for you guys to see?

That democracy is efficient only when the nation is corruption and red-tapism free!

We need security and safety,

Sometimes, we seek some transparency.

Stop trying to curb our freedom,

To speak, to eat and to love,

Let go of your laundering skills

And actually give us development.

Give us education, and get yourself educated

Give us jobs, and get yourself some taxes

Give us better public infrastructure, and get yourself our trust.

And, maybe we will share the happiness, by giving you the power for the next 5 years and getting back the ‘JUST’.

 

In all honesty, we have fallen a lot to build the empire that stands tall today, but, we shouldn’t forget, who we are and what actual freedom is. We chose democracy, for stability and growth, but if it fails to deliver that, then something is wrong.

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.

sad-505857_1920-01


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 Nothing

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.

Exhibit A:

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.

Exhibit B:

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.

Thank you for reading. Do share your views in the comments section below and share the message so everyone can live a life that they are worth of.

I’ll be back with another amazing post until then, #LIVEyOURLIFE and #StandUpForHumanity and help people by #LiftingThemHigher!

Does everything really happen for a reason?

preview-01

Everything happens for a reason they say. I so wish, I could have believed that lie long ago. A beautiful life you’ll have ahead, struggles are here for you to learn; they’d be of a great help to you when you go further in your life. It shall not only be helpful in reminding you of all the things you had gone through to reach there but it may help you by providing you with the lessons that made sure you never made the same mistake again. Oh, but sadly, our destiny doesn’t know the nature of a human. It lusts for settlement. It needs to be adored and is always on the lookout for people who praise them.

Who cares what happens to humanity? It’s a small part of a single planet, in a large universe after all. They are all like ants, waiting to be crushed on a moment’s notice. And what does an ant do for a living anyway? Life is useless and shall always be, for all men must die, and if there’s a reason for someone’s existence, why does a human die of young age, while being born, or why do all the crimes happen – Children and innocents killed, massacred and the survivors are looted, slaved or raped? Do the words, “Everything happens for a reason” justify that?

Honestly, this is what at least half of the humanity feels of itself. We have become nothing but a shadow of what we call evil and condemn it when it’s just about the talking, but very few, have the guts to take action against evil. And what do the rest do to boost their will? Oh, that is a concept still unknown to the best of best minds, for selflessness, is a virtue today like a unicorn, impossible to find.

“’I was.’, ‘I am.’ And your ‘I will be’” is not going to help anyone. It has only been making things worse than it is, for those who choose to live with honour, never tend to dishonour anyone or let anyone dishonour others.  Over the years, ‘twas the honourable men who made into the legacy of the legends, but does that mean Brutus was an honourable man? Aye, so they thought he was, but he was the one who ended up killing himself in the end, when he saw his cause was of a lost one.

Living for others and not expecting anything in return is an art of compassion and that is what is expected of a human, no matter what their destiny is. A man has no right to question the duty of a lion, for that is how the balance is maintained, so kindly put that dagger of yours for it is stained. Leap like a lion, but not on innocent preys, but on your goals for they are as far as they say. Live in your moment for you have a purpose, never dare say, life has no purpose. Yours was interrupted, don’t fray, for my dear, Karma is always at play.

Does everything really happen for a reason? Do let me know in the comments below.

I’ll be back with an amazing post, so stay tuned and #LIVEyOURLIFE and #BeLIVE.

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!
