Happy 76th Independence Day!
May our country Treasure every tree,May our nation,Enlightened by logic be,And thrive with hope,In adversities,Resolutely cope.May my India,Like the Charkhaa, Keep moving,Awakened, 24 by 7,And bring to earthA glimpse of heaven,And be a blessing,To all the Living.
As evening arrives…
May you silent the noises of worry and stress and fear. May you find your peace as you use words of hope and thoughts of love. May the mind retain and recall your favourite music, your favourite songs, your favourite flavours and beautiful memories.May your heart be filled with contentment and courage.
The squirrel seems Less playful,The wind seems Much heavier,The sun seems Much distant,The laughter seemsMuch hollower,The chat seemsMuch mundane,The debate seemsMuch effort,The meal seemsMuch familiar,The water seemsMuch nauseous,The heart seemsMuch numb,The mind seemsMuch dumb.It’s one of those days,Only music seemsMystical, magical,Music has it’s healing ways.
We are all merely, A future memory.What sort of vivid one,Do we choose to be,Before we are done?Who ever you happen, To meet and to be with, Here and right now,Choose to be kind,Or quiet, if not loving.That’s how,They’ll remember you,Be kind to yourself too!
A sesame seed
How little, how tiny. A sprinkle of sesame, Adds special flavour.Like a timely smile,Brings relief greater.Its not words alone,That we use as balm,To bring back calm.Tiny gestures,Warm expressions,Like a nod,A smile,A pat,Lift up those near, And encourage our dear,Spread comfort and cheer,As they release fear.Like the sesame seed,Tops our food,Makes it special indeed,Use a sprinkleContinue reading “A sesame seed”

I believe, I trust
Success is the result of our genuine talent, sincere effort and strong decision to not give up before we achieve our goal. Yes. But then how is it that only few succeed while many do not, despite of the talent, effort and determination? We do reflect- oh the timing was not right, or some strokeContinue reading “I believe, I trust”

Inside your mind,Keep thoughts kind.Inside your mind,Do not rewind.Inside your mind,Keep your thoughts, Words,deeds aligned.Inside your mind,Keep positivity enshrined Good morning!
May all go well today.May troubles melt away.Wish you a bounceIn your step, Happy and childlike,May your heart sway.May the day be simpleMake you just smile,And show your dimple.
Watch flowers bloom,Listen the birds sing,Bump into bunnies Scurrying and hurrying,Dancing and hip-hopping.Rise and shine, With love and faith,Of all the divine,And in God’s trustMay your soul be refined,And in blessed love,May you remain entwined.

I have majored, 18 years in Muscat.
2004-present, a journey of joy.Back in 2004 I landed on 9th April, Good Friday, in Muscat.I now feel Muscat is in me as much as I am in Muscat, my beloved city.Thank you, Muscat,Thank you, Oman.
The world is at timesA bit topsy, a lot turvy,For you or me Or her or him,The morning may seem,A bit like Coffee gone cold,A bit like A slightly burnt cookie,That too without cream.Your mood may seem low,The sun may glare And pale your glow,Life may bring you,Blow after blow.If this be such a day,IContinue reading “Topsy”

May soft petals be underneath your feet now and always.

It is this ‘unexpected’ that might shake us and break us.
