Inspiration….something that you need at every stage of your life. Some are internally inspired, for some it comes from the people they met and for me…to be very frank I really don’t know, I don’t know who all were and are magnet to my pieces of inspiration but I would never forget two, the most important source, till date in my life. Those two had an everlasting effect on my doings. First is Pankaj bhaiya and second Ramanan Sampath, he was my senior. They never said big words, but somehow they gave what really is needed to get motivated. Such magnetizing personalities they have, can only admire. Now I want to share how they inspired me. At first about Ramanan….
“Ramanan” as delightful as the name. Met him in my first year after I got selected for “Quark Controls”. I still remember I was sitting with all the selected students, all other co-ordinators came, explained the work we are gonna do and went. At last, he came with a big smile on his face. He spoke just for 5min, but not only he spoke, he came he saw he delivered. That was the first time I saw anyone so confident in his/her approach. He always has a pleasant personality both during and off the work. His approach taught me how to be a professional yet playful, to be straightforward & still right all at the same time. He always gave chance and used to put faith in his juniors which I think is most important when you are working in a team, irrespective of how capable you think the person is, as he/she may turn out to be better than you. Because of all this, I owe my professional ethics to him to a great extent.
Now Pankaj bhaiya….
“Pankaj” as soft & fresh as a “lotus flower”, totally in accordance with the name. I don’t know from where I should start, though didn’t had lot of time with him but still whatever time I had, I was always thrilled by his elegant presence. He is like “Roger Federer”, have you seen him playing those mesmerizing and elegant shots? that’s how my brother is, totally flawless. His presence has always taught me how to be hard from outside and soft from within, to speak less and only when required, to believe yourself, to have a long vision and to respect everyone’s ideas even when they mean nothing to you. So many more things about him but I am short of words now.
I am very sure it has happened to you also. But sometimes we tend to ignore these things but they matters and not only matters they define where we go and what would be our destination. So whenever you feel like today someone has taught me a lesson…wait there, pause for some time and think over it. It may or may not help but either way there is nothing to lose so why so much hurry in life, have patience, its a long journey and a long way to go.
For last few days, don’t know why I am so obsessed with Inception Sound Track – Time, can’t express it in normal words, its not inspirational but still a seed to many thoughts. Here is a short poem on how I feel after listening it.
Listen this – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0kGAz6HYM8
Atypical feelings it gave, can’t do anything but praise.
Recalled old memories, pain and the anger which came.
The music sounds slow and yet so fast in reminding all the past.
Now can’t see anything but mysteries of my life ready to unroll.
The beats were heavy, and the emotions were strong & hefty.
Feel like crying on the mistakes i did, and the same time wants to re-joy the triumphs i had.
So mysterious yet so known, so aggressive yet so truce,
the song was nothing but like my own soul.
Such a emphatic effect it left, will not forget till the end.
It forced me to look the world the way it is, and not to judge people for who they are and where they live.
Some memories are really hard to get away with, they are “Slow Poison” which breaks our soul each day until we cruised them to begin a new journey. It reminds me few lines from a song “One Love” by “Blue”. The lines are “It’s kinda funny how life can change, can flip 180 in a matter of days”, perfectly filling the voids in the emotions I want to express. But somewhere down the line they remain in our heart forever. They keep us intact, and stop us from behaving in same old fashion. To end its neither good nor bad, and nothing less than a undefined mystery for us to solve.
Following are two such short poems, in the first one a lover is expressing emotions after a long break and in the second a boy showing his anger after being forsaked by his friends.
After a long break, today we crossed our paths again. Though saw only a glimpse but the past reappeared once again. Neither a friend nor a foe, but still admire her the most. Seeing her, even for a blink of an eye is a blessing in disguise for me & déjè vu for all of you. I hope the time will come when we are no more mere strangers, when we will be as close, as far we are today.
The time is changed, its no longer the same, some has shown they really are insane. Those who were saying hey i m your friend, now say behind closed doors, you are nothing but a joke. Now its time to re-think the way i think, re-look the way i look, re-choose the friends i have and re-hope, they sooner or later would realize that they were wrong and i was right.
“Mother” a word, that defines the meaning of care, love, affection, teaching, and inspiration, and without any doubt, a word with many, many meanings which can’t be said and written. Everyone loves her mom so much that they can give away their life for her. On the other hand she would take care of everything you need and the smallest things you can forget. She would wake up early in morning so that you can go to school on time, will not eat until you eat, would remain awake in nights with you during exams so that you can concentrate on studies. She do so many sacrifices, sometimes its hard to believe, how one can do so much for you. I don’t know about you but my mother really surprise me by her devotion. She really is a SILENT GUARDIAN, and a WATCHFUL PROTECTOR.
The following I dedicate to my Mother.
I will rise from my ashes once I die, will born again to the mother I love. Can’t pay back what you did, but can only pray you continue to live. I promise, as long as I’m there, you will never see any tears, I love you the most as you are the mother everyone hopes.
Thousands of battles had been won and lost. Most of them were to fulfill nothing but self pride and only few were for justice. Some kings had made right choice but many had taken wrong path of battle which led to blood shed. Here are feelings of a king after winning a long fierce full battle, who now feeling guilty, helpless, and praying to god to give mercy to the innocent soldiers.
A long battle is won today but nothing compared with what it was yesterday, many lost & many saved but the wounds remain all the same. Now can’t bear the guilt it gave & yet have to smile at the victory which came.
I pray to god, show me the door to hell as it was my fault to begin and kindness & mercy to the soldiers who survived till the end, as they are nothing but puppets of my hand.
