A poem by my lil sister…loved it…

pratyu

The day was so pleasant and welcoming

as the sun embraced with his warmth

as the birds chirped in a happy tone

as the trees felt the touch of the cool and pleasant breeze

 

There suddenly came a  violent sound

the roar of him (thunder)

the chuckle of him ( lightening)

birds flew faster to hide themselves

trees bent over for him

 

As the darkness started  creeping over,   bright sky turned deadly demonic dark

a violent start of  the hail storm ,  droplets  condensed to ice

hitting over and over ,with great anger , as if an enemy who has  deceived him is found

 

It went on for some time when suddenly his  anger subsided

he became a bit gentler, as the father punishing a child(human) for his idiotic works

to make him realize  the self destruction he is bringing over with his unconsciousness

 

Suddenly he became the pleasant self…

Reblogging on the occassion of mother’s day…dedicating the post to my mom 🙂

reflectionslav

After all these posts, I was thinking why not write one about my mom itself..so here it is…

Mom has gone through lot of hardships in her childhood..having lost her parents at a very young age, life was not a bed of roses for her. But she never lost heart…always believed in God, that all would be well. She is my inspiration… everytime i hear about her past, I cant help but hold back my tears and feel proud of her at the same time. the way she has cheerfully faced the hardships and stayed beside her elder brother who supported the family – is a true inspiration to me..

All the credit for what me and my sisters are now, goes to her…she was our first teacher..I am always told by my relatives tht I used to create quite a ruckus to avoid school…It was my mom who patiently taught me…

Silly Superstitions

 

 After a hiatus, am back to blogging…what made me write this blog, is this silly habit of mine which I got reminded of.. That made me think about the silly beliefs/habits which people have..

 I have this couple of stupid/funny habits like –there is this nice blue quilt which I absolutely dread of…the one or two times I used it , the days had been really horrible to me..now I think twice to even touch it… funny Isnt it??!! I know…but still I don’t want to touch it…

I still remember how my mom was annoyed with me when I used to wear the same dress to all the exams during my school days, just because my first exam went very well…

At the same time, there are certain things which I have observed are extremely lucky to me too…like the color “pink” or “a Tuesday”…

Another stupid belief of mine – It is definitely going to rain when I wear a white dress…

As I went to college, I found that am not alone… there was a friend of mine who used to take a particular set of stairs to classes everyday even though it is the farthest one to class…then there are always these famous lucky pens..lucky books…lucky charms..

there were also popular superstitions which did their rounds in the campus like – looking at the institute clock tower is considered a bad omen which is going to spoil your entire day.. the craziest one was “a bird shitting on you would turn you into a institute topper (10 cgpa)”…LOL…

As funny and crazy as they sound, these stupid habits/beliefs/superstitions (whatever you call it) become a part of our daily routine…..

Is there any scientific explanation???not sure….but I have my own theories… It’s all in your mind… If you are uncomfortable doing certain things, then all the time your brain keeps sending negative signals expecting worse to happen…and even if something minor happens – u correlate it to the bad luck…and voila!! your superstitions are confirmed!!!

Or in  a more philosophical way… if u do something that is pricking your conscience as it is against your silly superstition, you carry the negative vibes, which attract negative energy and make negative things happen.

On the other hand, following your belief will make you happy and positive which attracts more positive things to happen… 🙂  (courtesy : The Secret…nice read, if it is your cup of tea)

So friends…go ahead and follow your stupid superstitions(as long as they are harmless) and be happy 🙂 …
