Are we truly Independent?

Patriotism isn’t my cup of tea,
‘Cause I’m not blinded by the love for my country.
Blinded to see what’s going on,
Politics, corruption and what all has gone.

Independence means free from outside control,
Written in the constitution.. For India it was a major stroll.
15th August 1947 was a big day indeed,
When our freedom fighters sow on the world map another independent seed.
They thrusted on us the future of this seed,
To make it a big flowering tree.. Or an ordinary weed.

But after 66 years I wouldn’t hesitate to say,
Alas! We took the wrong way.
Years passed by and we aren’t truly independent,
Failed to carry the vision from our descendants..

Poverty is bottom of a pyramid in this country,
‘Coz everyone wants to fill their pockets.. Be it businessmen, trader or a corrupt selfish Mantri.
Safety is another hell of an controversy,
Which we often happen to over see.

Why are girls still penalised for what they have not done?
Why does everyone still want a son?
Why aren’t some people allowed to express their opinion?
Why are the prices so high of petrol and onion?

I fail to understand what the people of this country are happy about,
While the wall between the rich and the poor is quite stout.
There is a ray of light in the darkest of caves they say,
I hope a juncture will come when we’d truly say Happy Independence Day!

With all of this world’s pace today, many of us feel left out. Even with all the money we make, even with all the privileges we get, we feel resentful by the time we go to sleep – a feeling which doesn’t satisfy the very purpose and existence of life. Why is it so? Why are the feelings of restlessness, emptiness, isolation, the fear of being abandoned is replaced be a belief of God?

So many people I personally know have taken onto asomatous apprenticeship that sometimes it makes me wonder, if at all we are able to elicit anything on our own. I’m not generalizing, nor throwing any bad light upon any spiritual bouquet but we have become very at home with running towards someone else for help, always.

Many organizations I know, have constantly stressed at one point – that we must start cultivating a habit of undoubting the omnipresence of The Lord. I’m not an atheist, nor am I a priest. I’m a human, who believes that if you practice well being, it will be reverberated back to you.

They headline the fact of God, into us, which is not something they’re supposed to do, because that relationship we have with Him is so pure and personal that the thought of even commercializing it, demeans the intimate receptivity between the two.

They cannot instill thoughts in us to like God, or believe in God because frankly that’s such a personal and privy decision. It’s unfair that it is those money seeking corporates who dictate our spiritual journey. It is flawed fundamentally to such a large extent that it’s not even funny.

I feel that, we must believe in His Infinite Spirit because we want to, and not because we must. And that feeling should come from within us, not from those traders of religion. I strongly give credence to the point that we all must be God Loving and not God Fearing. Because then it is, when we seek His nourishment.

You’re not happy because of God, you’re not sad because of God. You are feeling emotions, which are self-inflicted. Neither can we blame Him for our miseries, nor can we thank Him for our joys. We can just work towards bettering and believing in the relationship we have with that Absolute Being, not for any sort of reward or fruit, but for the sheer bliss and positivity it brings along with it.

Contestएक अँधेरी गली ,
गली में जलता बुझता एक चिराग़।
सुनसान राह , हवाओं का शोर।
एक तरफ हवाओं में घुली तुम्हारी खुशबू।
दूसरी ओर बेवफ़ाई का धुंआ।
धुएं में घुटता मैं।
एक यादों का शोर , एक एहसास।
एक विश्वास ,तुम्हारे लौट आने का।
यकीं है मुझे अभी भी।
तुम पर, अपने प्यार पर।
तन्हा-तन्हा सा हूँ मैं।
वक़्त है अभी भी , थाम लो मुझे।
इस धुएं में घुट जाऊँगा।
मैं तन्हां था , तन्हा हूँ ,और.………
तन्हा ही मर जाऊँगा। ………….

This failure will vanish, so will I.

Time has marked it presence, but never did I

Everyone laughed and I wondered why?

Everything seems broken; so does thy

I am scared, what if; I never know why?

Will it be my destiny, till I die?

GOD seems dead, I wanna know why?

I see this world, but where am I?

Fib seems whiter, truth is like a lie.

Will that Angel with broken wings, ever fly?

I HOPE he does, so will I.

For Paa. 

“You are the best thing of my life”

Jab Duniya Me Mai Aaya,

Papa Ne Ungli Pakad Chalna Sikhaya,

Jab Pehla Kadam Bhi Na Aata Tha

Tab Good Me Utha Sansar Dhikhlaya.

Her Mushkil Me Ban Mera Saya,

Dost Ban Mujhko Samjhaya,

Jivan Kaise Jeena Hai,

Ye Papa Ne Batlaya.

Jivan ke Her Sukh- Dukh Sahke,

Pita Ka Farz Hai Nibhaya,

Meri Her chhoti – Badi Khushiyo K Liye

Apne Sukh Ko Hai Bhulaya.

Papa Aap He Meri Duniya Mera Pyar Ho,

Maa Ka Suhag Aur Mera Abhiman Ho,

Is Chhote se Parinde Ka Bada Aasman Ho,

Aap Swayam Parmatma Ka Avtar Ho.

Papa Aap Aupdarshit Annat Pyar Hai,

Aapse He Roti, Kapda aur Makan Hai,

Aapka He To Mere Sir Pe Haat Hai,

Aapke Bina Mera Jeevan Anaath Hai.

Aapse He Hai Sab Kuch Paya,

Aapne He, Mujhe Bada Banaya,

Aapko Krta Hun Mai Naman

Aap Ho To Mera Jeevan Hai Safal.

Vishav Me Kisi Bhi Devta Ka Asthan Duja Hai,

Papa Aap Ke Sewa He Sabse Badi Pooja Hai.

LOVE YOU DAD.

I MISS U.

BATTLEZONE

Posted: March 24, 2014 by CampusWriting in Writes...
Tags: , , , , ,

Right in the middle of an absolutely ordinary day, a thousand questions hit my mind simultaneously like arrows on a dartboard.. and my state of utopia suddenly dissolves into a cosmos of chaos and confusion.

Every single day is like a battle ahead.. an inevitable warzone.
You HAVE to step in, shed blood, scream, cry, run for your life, defend your morals, surpass the zillion obstacles that test your righteousness, and reach the finish line. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose and most of the times, you don’t know what happened. You shut your eyes, block the images from the wearing day and prepare yourself for another battle the next day. 
But at the end of the day, what matters most is neither the blood nor the tears, it is the lesson you learnt. There is victory and failure, screams of joy and wails of pain, appreciation and humiliation, struggles and hardships, friends and enemies, and most importantly, life and death.

You need strategy. You need courage. You need to know right from wrong.
Every battle is your chance to make your mark, to get yourself known, to create a permanent impression – because you never know, maybe tomorrow’s battle is too hard to fight.
Remember, History doesn’t remember soldiers who died worthless deaths, but martyrs are always cherished.

Be brave, be strong
Be righteous, do no wrong.
The world will try to bring you down
Because it’s a battle to win the crown.
Do not give up, come what may
Even if success seems far at bay,
because every step takes you closer
to the place where clouds of victory hover.
It’s a battle to thrive
and only the fittest shall survive.

Just a fact, Just like that…

Posted: February 14, 2014 by CampusWriting in Writes...

It occurred to me the other day that there might be people in this world who have never known unrequited love, have never fallen for someone who didn’t fall too.

I know it’s rarer than a solar eclipse, but it seems likely that some have managed it; people who married their high school sweetheart, who got it right on the first try, who were seemingly born with enough innate confidence to walk right up to the object of their affection and say, “I think you’re great, would you like to go on a date sometime” and whose confidence was rewarded with a resolute, “Absolutely, I’d love to” and a Happily Ever After. The rest of us would be inclined to murder a couple like this if we ever came across them, but I maintain that they are the ones who are missing out. Everyone should fall for someone who doesn’t love them back at least once.

People who don’t love you can be found in many places. Pick the person in a brand new relationship; they can’t see more than five inches past the face of their new love, let alone far enough to see you pining away in the corner. Pick the girl you’ve been friends with for ages, the one who refers to you as a brother and will never see you as anything else. Pick the boy who flirts with everyone, sleeps with everyone, the one who doesn’t know what he’s looking for and never seems satisfied. He’ll do just fine, too.

This has to be more than a crush, more than just a fleeting attraction. Thinking they look cute when they smile, or letting your imagination momentarily wander when they touch your skin isn’t enough. You must love them with every fiber of your being, from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep, day after heartbroken day. Memorize the rhythm and cadence of their voice, the subtle gestures of their hands and each expression of their face, so when you’re asleep and dreaming of a world in which you’re together, it seems real. Feel your soul fracture each morning when you wake up and realize it isn’t.

Let the agony, the obsession, consume you. Nothing hurts quite as exquisitely as loving someone who doesn’t love you back.

Perhaps you think I’m crazy for suggesting anyone let themselves fall into this pit of despair, that I’m an emotional sadist of the worst variety. But darling reader, I assure you I’m not, because eventually something happens to every single person who loves someone who doesn’t love them back: they manage to stop being in love.

While it takes varying amounts of time, everyone finds their breaking point, that moment when enough becomes enough. It could be the third night you cry yourself to sleep, the fifth time they cancel plans with you to be with someone else, or the eighth night in a row you spend getting drunk alone. It can take months, or even years. But here’s what you’ll have once you get there:

After surviving that kind of ache, you’ll be so much stronger, so much more certain of yourself. You’ll see that all pain (physical, emotional, and metal) is a temporary state of being, not a permanent one. There is always a reason to go on, always a reason to fight for yourself.

You’ll realize that because you are not loved by one does not mean you are not loved by all. You’ll understand that love cannot be won like a teddy bear at the fair; cannot be stolen like a rare painting from a museum in the dead of night. You’ll see that real love comes first from within, not from anyone else. You learn that those annoying people who say things like, “real love comes from within” were telling you the truth this whole time, but you had to learn it for yourself. Don’t worry – you don’t need to tell them they were right.

Getting over unrequited love feels like having a blindfold removed – you suddenly see all the love you’ve had in your life this whole time, and you’ll appreciate those individuals like never before. You will be humbled, you will be grateful, you will be wiser.

Here’s the best part, though, about getting over someone who doesn’t love you: you realize that nobody healed your heartache, that you were able to fix yourself all on your own. And once you’ve proven to yourself that you can recover from that, you won’t be afraid to go looking for love again.

And again, and again and again.

And one of those times, you’re bound to be rewarded with someone who reciprocates every ounce of your unbridled affection, who loves you just as much as you love them, and that will be the most supreme feeling of ecstasy you can fathom. You’ll see that loving someone who didn’t love you back was totally worth it.

From Devi to Dayan

Posted: January 30, 2014 by CampusWriting in Writes...
Tags: , ,

The woman is someone who cannot be defined easily she can be a mother, a sister, a wife and a daughter as well. The member of homo sapiens who sacrifice the most. Leaves her home, give birth, bear all the pain. In India even today women once married doesn’t speaks a word against the family of her husband, even today they believe in sacrifices, they carry all the pains and along with the practice of leaving her own house after marriage, even brings dowry. Not only this, women in India are regarded as deity on earth. From the time of Vedas women are being regarded as an incarnation of goddess on earth. There are home where when a baby girl is born they consider her as Laxmi who is the goddess of wealth. In Hindu religion the power of knowledge, wealth and strength lies in goddess Saraswati, Laxmi, Durga, all women. 

But the condition is not even everywhere. The plight of women has been really indelicate in several areas. Women are considered as a ‘woe’ by the men in the society in many places. I am not saying so because it is a written fact, but a visual one. Where on one hand they are being regarded as goddess on the other hand their rights and life both have been chucked away because of the patriarchal nature of the society which has always dominated the women. The oppression, suppression and all forms of household violence has been prevalent in the earlier society and even today in some of the places. 

It was Sita Who gave the Agni Pariksha, it was Sati who had to burn herself alive, it was and is women suffering. The horrifying truth related to women in this 21st century which I would like to mention is that, women still in today’s world has to suffer from a practice called ‘witch branding’. Branding a women as a witch. A witch! At one place you worship the woman deity and on the other hand you call them witch? 

The practice of witch branding is prevalent usually in tribal areas of India, which include, Jharkhand, Bengal, Bihar, Assam, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. The community and the local crowd target one of the women the target is decided accordingly. There are many mala fide intentions found behind these activities either there is some personal grudge, property matter, revengeful act or usually hearsay. One such mentioned by the Women’s Feature Service (Jharkhand) is that this is the easiest way to acquire a woman’s property. 

The target is usually a widow, she is alone and without any support and hence they could be easily targeted. Branding them is not the end, there are several inhuman acts after that. The savage people brutally beat up the women, kill them, few lustful rascals take advantage of the situation and outrage the modesty of the women. Sometimes the women are raped as well then killed. This is one the most horrifying violence against women which still exists. Their soul is ripped apart, their character is assassinated, they are blamed for every unexpected happening, whether low rainfall, whether famine or drought or death of any person. A virtuous woman is killed for no reason they are beaten, paraded naked, disgraced, ostracized and then robbed of their land by anti social elements and sometimes even greedy relatives. Because of this witch branding practice.

Government has implemented several Acts to avoid this brutal and ignominious act of people, but those are much awaited to be seen in action. Many acts are being written on paper but not seen in force, usually it is seen the local authorities are even involved in this indelicate practice and hence no actions are taken.

Although offences under the Jharkhand’s Prevention of Witch Practices Act are cognisable and non bailable, the punishment is not stringent and the Act is seen as a legislation without teeth. For all the torture that a woman suffers on being branded a ‘dayan’ (witch), the Act recommends imprisonment for a term that may extend to three months or a fine of Rs 1,000 or both for the wrongdoer .Furthermore, any person who exploits a woman on the suspicion that she is a witch can be punished under the legislation with imprisonment for a term that may extend to six months or Rs 2,000 fine or both. If any person instigates anybody to brand a woman a witch, he can be imprisoned for a period of three months, fined Rs 1,000 or both. Despite of all the legislations existing the women’s self respect and life are ostracized and sabotaged.

Statistics on witch-hunting crimes compiled by the National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) are a cause of concern. The NCRB reported that in 2007, 177 cases of witchcraft-related murders were reported from the above mentioned states. Jharkhand had the dubious distinction of reporting 50 witchcraft- related murders, followed by Andhra Pradesh with 33; Haryana at 30; Orissa with 28; Madhya Pradesh with 14, Chhattisgarh with 8 and Gujarat with only one reported case.

There are many such barbarous and gross scandals have been reported recently. Few of them are mentioned below to make everyone realise that having a nuclear deal, or a Lokpal will not be sufficient to make our land progress and prosper, if people are so much interested in fasting and publicizing ask them to consider these issues which are not even discussed 

• A 55-year-old woman was set on fire reportedly after she was branded as a witch by four members of a family at Rojwa village in the district, police said. Around seven members of one Dhedhiya family from the village allegedly attacked Mohliben Dhansingh Rathwa at her house on Sunday, dragged her out and set her on fire, an officer from Rangpur police station told. The accused were apprehended from the village today and a search is on to trace three other members suspected to have been involved in the attack.

• On the 25th of Jne in Jaipur, a 30-year-old woman was stripped and molested after being branded as a witch in Rajasthan’s Tonk district, police said Monday. The incident took place Saturday in Dhuan village of Tonk district, some 120 km from Jaipur. The woman approached police to register a first information report (FIR) against four people Sunday evening. The woman said that four men barged into her house while she was asleep and started alleging that she was a witch. They asked her to leave the village. She said in her complaint that they stripped, molested her and tried to rape her but the she managed to escape.

• In Gurwari village of Bhilwara District in Rajasthan, a 55 year-old woman was returning home from the temple when four men and a woman attacked her and started beating her with sticks. A huge crowd of villagers gathered there as the attackers claimed she was a witch and was possessed by an evil spirit. Her clothes were torn and she was stripped publicly. 

The reported ones are in front of us, many such incidents are not known to us, the issue is not something which would get resolved on its own, some initiative has to be taken, several such practice is done but no one comes to know about it as the women is killed or she out of shame never turns up. The practice still continues in many tribal areas of several states, something has to be done before the plague could spread any further. Let us not ruin the sanctity of a women, let their modesty be preserved and self respect be respected.
Same ‘Devi’ turned into a ‘Dayan’ ironical.!

Why should I chat with you, becoz there is no reason to ask for a date with you.
I have tried to talk with you but you finds difficult to walk with me.
I just look for a smile then you have no time to tie a friendship tie with me.
I know you are beautiful it not made be scared.
I forgot to see anyone you forget to see even me.
Though it seems hard to believe but it’s a fact I can’t lie.
