I saw you looking up into the sky Felt as though you were about to cry.. What made you stay back till the late night Or was it because you could …..The Fallen Bird..
What do you see🤪
Say what is beautiful, or
Stay beautiful in silence

We demand gratitude and returns for
Every favor we have shown
Every gift we have Given and
Every salary we have paid
Even if it’s a two way deal
Every breath we have taken
Every morsel we have eaten
Every step we have taken
Every scene we have seen
Every sound we have heard and
Every moment we have spent
Every limb we possess and
Every relationship we claim
Are gifts from The Generous One
How much gratitude we steal
Yet, it’s a one way deal!
I was studying in the 6th standard in the village school
One lazy afternoon in the class, the teacher walked in and everyone stood up in respect. Even before the class settled down the teacher signaled me to go towards him.
Though i was a back bencher , i went to him like an obedient pet as he was famous for slapping students. But deep in my mind I always wondered how it felt to be slapped by someone.
My curiosity kept on increasing as i went near him and as soon as my face was at a reachable distance. His hand went up in the air and it reached out to my soft lower ear lobe and like a professional he started squeezing it . I felt of myself as a chewing gum for a few moments.
When he did a few rounds and i had seen enough of butterflies, he told me to go back. As i was going back, i felt like a celebrity as almost a 100 eyes were fixed on me of the classmates
I reached my bench and i was still wondering why it all happened, i couldn’t help but smile while sitting down.
Even before my bums could touch the bench, the teacher gave me yet another signal to go to back to him. This time around i was very confident of the reason and walked up to him in speed and as soon as i reached the distance of his arm span, everything started slowing down.
His hand swung up in the air like a baseball racket and with the perfection of a pro it landed right in the middle of my face, home-run!
It was because of him i realized law of attraction is real ,whether it is for a good or a bad thing.
I am sure he only had the best of intentions, but out of the deep respect we had for teachers in the village none of us students could ask him for the reason. Among all my other teachers , I wish him a great Teacher’s Day. We always learn from them.
May be this is why they say, experience is best teacher ,as even after 25 years of that incident i am still wondering why it all happened..
Can you help me with a guess..?
No matter how good you are with parents
There is always a level higher
I recently saw a poster where Christiano Ronaldo expressed his great love for his mother and said he will always keep his mother with him , regardless of his fame and busy travels.
For a celebrity of that stature these are beautiful words and a great expression of love and humility before his mother
Recently, I Saw a greater expression of love when I asked one of my successful friends as a passing question, “oh so your parents live with you ..?”
He immediately corrected me and said , “No I live with my parents , I wouldn’t have been here if not for them “
Even though his parents were depending on him, he gave them the credit and chose to express his dependence on them.
So there is always a level, up.
No matter how good you are with parents
There is always a level, higher
A negative thought in your mind
Is like a mouse in the house
You know well the damage just one can cause
Think of having a thousand mice at once
Use of a trap can only catch a few
But prevents not more from entering anew
Find the hole through which it creeps in
Seal it at once and earn a piece of your mind!
They say we have 70000 thoughts a day. And for an average person more than half of it is negative and a lot of the rest is about trivial matters.
While it’s not easy to put a full stop to these, the best temporary solution is to drive away negative thoughts with opposite thoughts which im referring to as the mouse trap ( Eg: to pray for or praise the one whome you are jealous against).
The real solution will be to find the source of these negative thoughts and solve it from the roots which is referred to as sealing the hole in the poem (Eg: To settle a long kept partnership or relationship issue rather than to live with it while it occupies half the space of your mind)

Be like the moon, mild
Not like the Sun , wild
Like the moon , veil
Not like the sun, reveal
Be like the moon, artistic
Not like the sun, stagnant
Be like the moon, compassionate
Not like the sun, investigative
Yet, when the line is crossed
Be gone like the moon,
And like the Sun, Rise.
