Chaplin’s concept..

Life laughs at you when you are unhappy.

Life smiles at you when you are happy.

But, Life salutes you when you make others happy.

Silent Farewell..

Posted: August 11, 2010 in Thoughts

You left this morning..
All set to enter God’s haven
Without saying good-bye
Neither could we stop to ask why

As I faintly recollect..
Last we met was 7 years ago
It seems just like yesterday
Now have left with just memories of you.

Though am so far away..
Unable to be a part of your sending off
Tears not flow across my face,
As I now feel you’re much closer to me.

Am thankful for the little time we spent..
With..
A man that I grew up to love,
A man who listened to me
A man I fondly called Thaatha(Gran-dad)..!

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”  — Kahlil Gibran

Familiar domain..

In life, a time does come when you start looking for a companion. If this person matches your ideas & you both have mutual respect –more importantly love for each other, then you feel it’s safe to hold his/her hand for the rest of your life.

Hold on!!! Reckon this is still prevalent in the society that we live/grew up..Impending question you’re forced to answer? What ‘caste/faith’ is he/she?

Sounds clichéd, doesn’t it.

Heaven help you if he/she isn’t..at this point I ask the reader what is there in a ‘caste’..Does it help you when you’re left astray by life’s misfortune? Every faith teaches you the same morals, values except that they are in different forms/scriptures.

For the couple who until then remained united in love, suddenly are forced to give in, due to parental/society pressure. Many a times these scars do remain, (with due respect to individuals & their circumstances) sometimes I find it hard to fathom when either he/she just backs off. Reckon its better to laugh that you are out of a meaning-less relation & look forward.

We’ve always been talking about being ‘humane’..Suddenly when faced with situations such like…all goes down the drain..?

I stand here to be corrected..When we can accept advances in technology, policies/procedures in getting our tasks done – why can’t we just accept two people of different faiths unite…why can’t we be more humane/matured in this aspect?

Hope has always been a part of life..For all those who are presently treading on this path. Be Bold – when you can hold his/her hand..Damn it! Have the courage to stand by him/her & face your parents/society.

Folks, CASTE is a mere tag. Let’s not blow it outta proportion..!
