Nothing to Me

Sometimes people come in our lives that create a chaos of sorts and do not let our lives sail through even the silent waves without stirring and jerking us through.

Scheming and plotting they are they are busy mending things for themselves less worried about its effect on other fellow beings.

Pretense is a mask that overshadows the normal lives of other people with its pompous yet false grandeur making prey of other people who are emotionally blind either or have not yet been part of the  venomous effect yet to know its capabilities. As for people smart enough to understand who fail to react, I find are in love or else scared as to how the society reacts to acquaintance hence, keep a blind eye or curtain on such deeds.

Nothing should be the status of such people, but the irony is that due to their brilliant acts in real life they are held high and their fire of wrong doings is given air to keep burning.

May be God-fearing people share space with them however, they should mean nothing to them.

Simply put they exist but are NULL and VOID.

Do you too have such extensions and relationships where you feel there is not space for growth or breathing?

Juggling through the day with numerous chores
Struggling through the night with aches and sores
She refuses to give up or meet the ground
Determined to rise above life, above the crowd
Waking before the dawn
Sleeping after the house dozes off
She possesses a silken heart 
Is fully aware when her children act smart
She is the lifeline of the family
Full of love and sympathy
She is a MOTHER.

October sky

Sad, but I could not keep pace with the last month blog posting. As the month of October has started, I promised myself to keep alive the posts and bring back into momentum my visits to fellow bloggers write-ups.

October is special as it etches another year of ‘We’. Especially this October it seems breezier and the rains are adding an extra charm and effect after an almost dry monsoon. Everyone thought that the coming months would end up in dry spells but then the rains came to the rescue. Love those clouds and the rains.

By the way, it just happened to cross my mind that maybe hugs are as important to humans as the clouds. You see we have cut down the trees and the hills so the clouds do not get entrapped (read embraced) and literally wander off, as is the case with humans. A stressed life comes to peace while the eyes shed those dewdrops while in the embrace of a close one.

Fingers crossed, head held high I promise I will try to stop by!

Worth Every Second - Success

Sweet, tangy, pure and addictive
Introducing me to ecstasy 
Sensation lingering strong
Erased the difference
Between right and wrong

Intoxicated by its presence
I lost control
World turned around
Life no longer stands calm
Still, I declare
Success has its own charm.

Love Unconditional

When you feel loved
Toughest times do not matter
Life just refuses to shatter.
It is a feeling too personal to define
An abstract with no perfect design
Rawness keeps it alive.
It is a peck on the forehead
A pat on the back
Clenching of hands
Talking eyes
Wordless times.

Deep within
Invisible to world outside
Love is not just red roses
Not restricted to gifts and poses.

It is a rainbow
Without rain and the sun
A garden in times
When everything appears barren.

Love is without rules
Sans any condition
It is hidden in a quarrel
That can ease the tension.

Let your love be your own
Not a showcase
Or exhibition
For other souls.

True love is eternal
With its share of up and down
You just know it is there
When there is no need to pretend
or a reason for your feelings
 to hide.

The first kindergarten was established by Froebel in Bad Blankenburg, Germany in 1837. He renamed his Play and Activity Institute to a ‘kindergarten’ two years later in 1840; a term coined by him.

Kinder means "children" and ‘Garten’ means “garden" in German. It was set up with the aim of providing the toddlers an exposure to the various facets of life like music, motor skill development, drawing, nature etc.

The first one in England was established 1850 by Johannes Ronge, German Catholic priest; in America, 1868, by Elizabeth Peabody of Boston, Mass.

Whereas it is taken into English untranslated, the other nations that borrowed the institution nativized the name (Danish börnehave, Modern Hebrew gan yeladim, literally "garden of children").

The present day Kindergartens are a ripened fruit of the efforts of the ideas and practices of Robert Owen in Britain, Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi in Switzerland and his pupil Friedrich Froebel (who coined the term) in Germany, and Maria Montessori in Italy. The approach today is no different from what was initially started, however; with technology and the internet, the exposure gained by children is more.

In India we have Balwadi’s that are either run by the government or the NGO’s that aim to provide early childhood care and education to children coming from poor sections of society. This aims to bring these children to the level average child who join the primary school.

Fresh Air

Shredded to the last bit
It took away my loneliness
Leaving me empty and light
Without any guilt

Many close relations were lost
As I was busy raising toasts
Reintroducing myself to living
Pacing especially slow
I just tore up my
