A Very Filmy Genie In The Bottle

Candles Online

It is said that nothing travels faster than the speed of light. WRONG !!! Imagination travels faster than anything ever known to man. The mind can be in Sherlock Holmes mystery one moment and Alice’s Wonderland the next moment. And my imagination was always in hyperactive mode, be it any stage of my life. My father loved this trait of mine, as it was my inheritance from him. He used my over-imaginative mind to his benefit sometimes, though it was always for my good.

He and I were bonded in the soul, and so he could read my mind and my thoughts real well. It always left me wondering how he knows exactly what I was thinking. I always used to ask him, “Papa, how do you know what’s going on in my mind ?” He would pull me to his lap and tell me in my ear like a top-secret…

THE FEAR OF JUDGEMENT

Candles Online

I can’t tell you from where I derive my confidence. I am a person who is lost more often than not. So what I can tell you is about my lack of confidence. I am human and to err is human. But when you lack faith in yourself, every action you take, every decision you make, every road you chose will lead you to believe that you have erred.

That is what happens with me each and every time. I don’t have trust in my decisions, and there are a lot of things that cloud my mind and tell me “NO, don’t go there, you won’t be able to do that”. I have fear; I have a fear of being a disappointment to all I love, to all who look up to me or who expect things from me. When I begin to think that I will not live up…

Marriage be like….

world4womencom

Hi Everyone,

This is my second article with the Concept of “Marriage” taking the centre stage.  In my previous write-up “Marriage Never An Achievement”( https://world4womencom.wordpress.com/2017/02/22/marriage-never-an-achievement/) I upheld an opinion that marriage shall never be deemed as an achievement irrespective of gender.   I still propagate the same idea.  Marriage of a person shall be solely his or her choice and call and not a forced decision of the social circle which we call “Society”.

But once you have taken the plunge it is your responsibility to make this relationship a successful one, I mean “A Happy Marriage”.  And when I am saying “Your” it refers to both the parties – wife & husband – the respective “You”s.  So how to make it work?

As I was struggling to get an idea about what shall I write I came across a regional (Telugu – Indian language) movie about an old couple…

Happy Women’s Day

world4womencom

Hi Everyone,

Dedicated to all the unsung heroes in my life and around me – to all the wonderful women.  Yes all of you are my heroes, ladies!  Your strength,  resilience,  patience, love, vision (and I can go on) are assets to the world.  No amount of praise is enough to let you know how much I adore and respect you:

You might not be a star but you light up my world;

You might be fragile but you give strength to me;

You might not be holding a position in bureau but for me you are at zenith;

You might be breaking apart but always mended the differences to knit the family;

You might not have travelled the world but know enough about the world around;

You might be technically less aware but you know the technique of keeping others happy;

You might be busy in bracing yourself to…

Soulful Rendezvous

You are smiling, tell me the pain you are hiding?
You have a tearful smile on your Lips
You are Pining on the inside of this facade
Your tears will turn to poison, the tears you swallow silently
These wounds healed by time, why you peel them again
Some things are Destined, You have lost to Destiny
No one can justify being alone,
The one that was yours is another’s today
Why this happens, why was this bound to happen
Is the world is such? Why is it such then?
If you hold my hand once, I will hold yours forever
My heart will beat inside your chest
Where there is Love, why is there such vast distance
Someone has not left this deserted home
Someone still knocks on the depleted heart
Why he gives hope to a shattered soul
The downcast eyes are holding turbulent storms
There is some heat in the embers of the blazing fire
Count the beats of your youthful heart once
Tell me, isn’t it as restless as mine?
The one moment when Love gains Maturity
Aren’t you hopeful for that solitary moment in time
I deny the world, for your sake
Do you have that kind is faith in yourself?

Still There

world4womencom

Hi Everyone,

The echo of silent prayers that were never heard is still there;

Lying beneath the far stretched sky, behind trail of every shooting star tales of my love for you are still there;

Holding your hand and walking distances, warmth of your touch is still there;

Under the layers of turmoil of life, freshness of memories which were once moments is still there;

Time never stopped,  so does the tears dampening the pillows, pain in the heart is still there;

Destinations have changed so are the ways but I am still stuck at the same turn where you have left me, so the wait is still there;

Before giving up my tryst with life, before succumbing to the inevitable my eyes would long to see you because desire is still there.
