Seed of time

Years pass by..and you assume 
it turned into a growing tree..
Years pass by..and you assume 
the wind of time had it slee..
Years pass by.. you never look back..
and the abandoned seed still lies there
wondering what its fate will be. 

p.s: had also thought of adding a last line .. 'for time is just a theory of relativity' :D:D would have spoiled the mood kya?? :P

Recurrent Dreams..

The eyes open to the morning glow,
only to know it was just a dream..
The whole day passes by,
with bursts of thought..
Oh! it remained a dream...
With no memories to recall of distant love..
I live with thoughts and thoughts repose..
Telling myself it is nothing so real..
and I know I will let it go.
Then off to bed,  I slip into the quilt, 
close my eyes..and live in a dream.

p.s: this is i guess, my first so-called 'poetic' poem. I am so  proud of this one :P

Ajmal Kasab Hanged. Period.

Oct 10, 2011: Kasab tells SC that he was brainwashed like a "robot" into committing the heinous crime in the name of "God" and that he does not deserve capital punishment owing to his young age.

Nov 21,2012: Kasab hanged in Yerawada Jail in Pune.

 But for all the merciless killings that happened during the mumbai attacks, and all the brave hearts who fought courageously to death to save innocent men, I still felt sorry for Kasab today. As I kept listening to my sister, giving me a detailed summary of the event, my heart kept softening for Kasab. May be any human heart would, for that matter. Kasab's hanging may be a completely justified political decision, but deep down, wasn't he prey to the surroundings he was brought up in? What would he have known about the world when he was brought to those terrorist training camps? An innocent child, he would have been. The highly impressionable mind of this child was then polished to serve selfish destructive ambitions. Thousands of such kasabs are brought to such camps everyday. Some fall prey and some rise to power of similar destructive missions.
Kasab as only 21 when he was arrested. When asked about his last wish he asked officials to inform his mother.

 Kasab wasn't the real culprit. He was just a tool. A tool to be used and thrown. 

The  real cause, the true devils are sitting high above all power in various forms.. laughing their teeth out at every destruction..

 A week before I watched DaVinciCode.. which also talked about merciless killings in the name of GOD. We humans fall prey to such abstract ideas so easily. It is always easier for us to believe in GOD than to believe our neighbour. We talk about liberation in different forms.  Wouldn't it be true liberation, to live the life bestowed upon us (by anyone or just no one) in peace and serenity. 

Isn't humanity above all religion, science and politics!!

Each Day !

I aim not to be a wealthy or a successful individual.
I aim to evolve in body, mind, soul each day.
I aim not to be an epitome of humanity. I aim to be humanly each day.
I aim not to be kind. I aim to have helped someone each day.
I aim not to be rich. I aim to be enriched each day.
I aim not to be learned. I aim to learn each day.
I aim not to be great. I aim to be good enough each day.
I aim to bring out the best of myself and let not my birth be a waste.
and I wish that each day, when I go to sleep..
I smile to myself and say, "this day was well lived."

Happy living !! :)
