Re-think and relax about health

Walk down any hospital ward.
You will find patients of all shapes, sizes, ages with different maladies. A sportsperson has a spine surgery, so does an accident victim and so does a housewife bending to pick up toys - spine surgery when she has had a slip disc. A person who religiously did Yoga, went to the Gym, also ends up with cancer like an obese person who suffered genetic obesity or hormone imbalance. None of us can escape pain.

So, in the end, do reflect and rethink how far one ought to be obsessed with one's shape, size, diet and lifestyle?

Reflect on health in being accepting and content as well as realistic. Live life's each moment fully in how you enjoy little things, have fun, do some mischief, sing a song along, walk on the beach,and enjoy your midnight snack with a grin that is a mile long.

That is NOT to say do not care or be mindful of your diet and exercise.Please DO CARE.


This is to say, do NOT be obsessed and fret about it.
Have your Que sera sera moments and follow your heart.

At times, its ok to leave alone some issues for time to mend, its ok to accept life with all its discomforts- physical, mental and emotional.You have to choose your battles.You need to tred light on your own heart.

Sit with your heartache.
Sit with your sadness. Feel your feelings.
Grow closer to yourSELF.

Breathe.

And then, hum-que sera sera, whatever will be, will be, the future's not ours to see.
Breathe. Just be.

Happy Day

Make your mind 
A place of worship
Enlightened, carrying
Thoughts very kind.

Make your heart
A loveful shrine,
Blissful, thankful
Radiating the Divine.




The Light within, the Light without.

Come, December

Come, December.
Come, December.

Let’s wind up
Moments heavier,
Better un-remembered,
Hopes unanswered,
Souls departed,
Tears shed.

Let’s pack away
The Covid taandav
It did one truth endow:
We all go,
Here we may be-
A year more,
A week less,
A day more
Or a few decades,
For sure,
We do not know.

Come December,
Help us overcome.

Come December,
Bring a cool 2022
With tides better,
Bring laughter
Lots of joy too;

Let’s love greater,
Let’s all live
Closer and on lesser.

Come December,
Help us vow
And always remember
To add love everywhere
We come and go.

Let's pledge too,
To preserve Nature,
Multiply laughter
To be kinder,‘humaner’
Make our 2022 lovelier
While we are here.

Life is a gift, unwrap gently, accept or change, live fully!

Good morning. Today: Use your wings

Fly higher, stronger, longer.
Imagine

Imagine
Flying on the wings
Of 'YES' thoughts,
Think of great things!

Imagine
Flying on the wings
Of positivity
And all it brings,
Seek skies beyond dreams!

Imagine
Flying on the wings,
Of peach pink pages
Filled of words
Of great possibility,
of realised potentiality.

Just let go thoughts,
That are self-limiting,
Break free,
Grow and bow,
Like a tree!

Envision,
A multitude of views,
Thoughts,
In all positive hues,
Words,
In many shades of ink,
Eyes wonder-wide,
See all ideas link.


Welcome to this world,
Of imagination unfurled,
Get up, realise it all,
Plonked on a sofa,
Dare not sit curled!

Rise, arise, awake,
This morning
Is as good as you make!
Make it better,
Imagine now-
How,how,how,
Go go, go now!
Best morning ever!

Happy Children’s day India!

A poem for kids:

'My Train Journey'
'My Train Journey'
My train journey
Was just lovely,
I met kids
Who were funny,
We laughed a lot
At each station
Hot snacks we bought.

Chhuk chhuk
Chhuk chhuk
Chug chug
Chug chug
Went the train,
The rhythm felt
Like a refrain.

I know not when
A thug came
A thief he was,
Who stole a pack
Of my croissant plain;
I thought to complain,
But my train started
So it would go in vain.


Chhuk chhuk,
Chhuk chhuk,
Chug chug,
Chug chug,
Went the train,
The rhythm felt
Like a refrain.

I watched peacocks
I think I saw a fox,
I now closely guarded
My chocolate box.

And all the while
As the train sped
Mile after mile,
Thinking of Granny
My face had a smile.


Chhuk chhuk
Chhuk chhuk
Chug chug
Chug chug
Went the train,
The rhythm felt
Like a refrain.

I slept off then,
And didn't know when
My station came!
As I heard the name
Mumbai CST announced,
I rushed at the door,
And almost fell
On the station floor!

Thank God on board
I was travelling light,
Quickly Grand Pa held me,
And hugged me tight.
Chhuk chhuk chhuk chhuk,
chug chug chug chug

A reflective morning

Reflections
Forty more days 
For 2021 to go.
The pendulum
Rocks to and fro.
Do we realise,
What more we need
To do, to know?
Do we decide to shrink
Or do we want to grow?
2021 bids farewell
So soon, in a blink-
Forty more days
For 2021 to go.

Unlike our others,
Who left us
And went ahead,
To the final home,
We breathe here,
One more year.

Shall we rethink, refine,
Shall we ourselves redefine,
Do we want to rewrite,
Our purpose here,
Being creative,reflective
On what we believe?

What did we receive?
What did we give?
Let's just be reflective.

Have a reflective day ahead.
Good morning.
Mindful reflection
