Round the corner

You may feel low,

You may have had a blow,

But dwell in hope,

You'll surely cope,

Just round the corner,

There's dawn again and light,

There's sweet delight.

Diwali's the highlight.

Declutter and decorate,

Goodness let's opt for

Each and everyday,

Kindness let's celebrate.

In each and every way.

Diwali is a festival

Of lighting diyas,

To drive away darkness,

Not just of the Amaavas,

But also the despair

And focus on inspiring

Others and ourself,

Spread love and light,

Share wisdom, show care.

Happy Birthday!

Our niece!
You rule our hearts naturally,              You are our dearly,  
You smile so graciously, You breathe so gently,
You speak so softly,
You move so delicately,
You are our Princess lovely, Each day may you live happily,
In every way remain blessed lovingly,
Now and for multiple decades to come,
You remain our precious, niece, our only one!

Kanhaa Poem

The  Kanhaa Poem: 1 
By Amita J Sanghavi.
19/8/2022.

Krishna, krishna!

Heading straight

To the Haveli,

We stop at the phoolwala

And his tokri,

Our steps halt

As we bend,

Flowers to the soul,

Bliss lend:

The moment

Of spotting fresh blooms,

Mogra and Prajakta,

Bringing a bright glow

On our face and our heart,

We bend to touch the petals,

And the softness

In the Marigold garlands,

How we love to hold!

And now hurry to visit

Krishna in the temple,

Inhaling incense,

Lotus scented agarbatti

Lighting lamps for real,

Chanting aarti in chorus,

As we drape blooms

Around His neck,

And join our hands,

Overwhelmed

With real Darshan

In our 'ami'-filled eyes,

As our blue Kanhaa

We behold,

The maakhan chor,

And His mesmerising,

Mischievous muskaan

Forever heart-held,

Come let’s celebrate,

The birth of

Our Divine consciousness

On Krishna we focus,

Govind Hari, Gopal Hari,

We chant in chorus,

His feet,

The ultimate Sharan

For us.

Quest

How do you want to become better? What do you need to unlearn and what self belief do you need to let go?
What have you questioned,
About yourself lately?

What have you deliberated on?
About who you are,
What do you want to do,
With your limited time here?

Are you spending time, Reflecting on
How you want things
To be different
Or better about yourself?

Are you willing to look,
Into what you need,
To change about yourself?

Observe a few minutes
Of silence,
A meditative, quiet, self-reflection time.

Focus on what is within.


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 sprinkle of warmth,
For those around
And in need.

Good morning!

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 Art of Leaving

The Art of Leaving all that which is detrimental to our physical, mental, emotional health is a PERSONAL CHOICE.
Leave it.

Detox.

The computer screen,

The ice cream,

The fried chips routine.

Leave it.

Detox.

The virtual game.

The fast food Ramen.

Leave it.

Detox.

Life is not indoors

On a screen-an idiot box.

Choose un-virtual

Real activities, detox!

Good Morning

Notice colours around you. Visualise them with glitter too.
As you go 

About your chore,

And still have

To finish many more,

Hold thankfulness,

Remember many yearn

For this normal-ness.

May peace and calm pour,

In your heart-core.

May good luck knock

At your life's door.

Have a blissful morning,

And a very lucky day.
May this day be calm and nice.

Let’s remember

Let's remember
Its not 'my' success
Or 'your' success.
It is 'our' success.

Let's remember
Its not 'my' failure
Or 'your' failure.
It is 'our' failure.

We are each contributing to ALL Humanity
And therefore, UBUNTU the African proverbial concept of Life and community is the best way forward- I am, because you are.
At our individual level, we can choose to pledge to ourselves to change and transform. We can guard the petty thoughts of a poor mind and move to a rich,open mind. A mind that's all-encompassing, ever-expanding. We must choose to drive our future based on a world view that holds a united and universal way of thinking, believing and supporting everyone. We can choose to make it a point to help whoever crosses our path in every way we can.

Hold onto goodness and positivity.

Find joy today

Joy is in fleeting moments
Connect with Nature,
Find joy
In clouds taking
On shapes,moving, changing.

Find dance
In leaves and flowers swaying.

Find tunes and songs,
In birds chirping
And streams gurgling
And the breeze whooshing.

Find joy.
Sigh out worry,
Breathe in joy.

Have a day filled
With joyful moments.
Whatever bothers you, just let it go…As Maya Angelou says,’Joy is a freedom. It helps a person to find his/her own liberation.

Choose Elegance Today

Do observe
The elegance
In silence.

Do observe
The elegance
In balance.

Do observe
The elegance
In excellence.

Silence enables
Self-reflection.

Balance enables
Right decision.

Excellence enables
Pursuit of progress.

Prosper with elegance
In meditative silence.

Keep a balanced mind,
And pursue perfection
In each action today.

Have an elegant day,
And a perfect morning today.

Good Morning!

May elegant doorways open for you today

Heartfelt

All that is true to self is heartfelt.

All that is heartfelt is sensitive.

All that is sensitive is caring.

All that is caring is loving.

All that is loving is gentle.

All that is gentle is delicate.

Like the breeze

Gently touches

The soft petals

And makes the flower sway,

Lead a heartfelt

Gentle day today.

Glide into 2022

2022, fresh as dew
Glide gently through
Few hours more
Into Twenty Twenty Two.

Merry or morose,
Some memories
Life deposited,
And some precious
Beloved memory-makers
Death withdrew.

Some doors shut,
Some did open for you,
To glide smoothly into
Twenty Twenty Two.

To reach the state ideal
You and I got to deal
With what we do,
How we feel.

So soar high
With Hope, fly
Do your best,
Just try and try.


Wishing you
A year New,
May your energies
Declutter and clear,
And your hope,
Rekindle and renew.

Wake up,
With a dream
Fresh as dew,
Rise, be wise,
Welcome 2022.

Rise

Merry Morning, Merry Christmas!🌲

Wishing you this morning Love, laughter, joy and peace
This Christmas, 
May the bells
Ring merrier,

May the times
Be happier,

May the family
And friends be closer,

May wishes
Come truer,

May your heart fill
With cheer,
May you make memories
Simply lovelier!
Merry Christmas!

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!

A morning wish

Have a breezy easy day😇
Temporal time ticks,
We move, as it kicks.

Breeze in the hair,
We pick a warm wear.

Neither time,
Nor breeze,
Do we see,
But one shows us,
Our lifetime limit,
The other shows us,
What's it to be free.

Use temporal time well,
But use leisure better.

Enjoy the breeze,
The outdoors and
The good weather.

May there be a zing,
Right under your wing,
As you follow dreams,
And execute duties,
With a determined Will.

Wish you a day,
Of accomplishments,
Full of fine vibes.
Breezy moments of life

Saal Mubaarak

May joy fill up your heart!
May your new year 
Be filled with cheer
Your mind crystal clear
Lots of lovely time
Spent happily with
Your near and dear!
Wishing you
A happy, healthy
And prosperous
New year!

Enter November!

Are you shawl-ready?
The month eleventh,
Cool in the desert,
Cold elsewhere,
Freezing minus ten,
Speeding to year-end.

Glance back perhaps
The time did lapse,
Memories we made,
Some of laughters
Some of regrets.

We lost some,
We found some,
People gone,
People come.

Thanksgiving month,
Gratitude to hold,
Tomorrows to behold,
With fervour,
Enter November,
Let's thank all those,
We forgot to remember.

Gratitude is the best attitude

Have a laughterful day and a happy morning.

Scores of laughters on shores of life
Laugh a lot more, 
May your laughter,
Just nonstop pour,
On laughter increase,
Your score more.

Let laughter,
Reach your core,
Like the rushing,
Waves on the shore.

Life's not forever,
It's now or never,
Genuine, laughter pure
Will many ails cure.

Laughter is the best medicine

Step by step

Choose to lose negativity

Step by step,
Improve your thoughts,
If you find your mind,
Spiralling into 'rewind'.

Past is not to live in,
But to revisit,
The best memories,
Hidden within.

If a memory bad or sad
Or a fear or a tear
Visit and upset
Sigh and be clear
You won't be their host,
Don't into them be lost.

Physically move
You must remove
That brain chemical
You alone can
Get back your groove.





Decide!

Good Morning

Choose and align your thoughts.
The day has dawned


Once more reflect
On your intent,
If you want to feel
Light and content.

Match intent
With values high,
Align them with words
And realise them
In efforts and deeds.

Once more reflect
On your intent,
If you want to feel
Light and content.

Once more feel
The quality
Of the words
On your tongue.
Taste their truth,
Savour their flavour.
Some don't need
To be voiced
Right away;
Some never at all-
Use discretion for all.

Let negative thoughts
Perch and fly away
Like the birds,
Don't nestle them
Or turn them to words.

Listen to a prayer,
Keep your mind clear
Focused and well- lit,
With hope and effort.

Make the day brighter,
The mind to the Self
Cannot be an enemy
Rather make it
Freer, friendlier,
Focused, calm, brighter,
Like the sky in summer.

Good Morning, good day!

Being just me

I choose, I decide
No I didn't prioritize 
Folding clothes
Cooking
House keeping.

I wrote verses.
My apologies
For fresh fruit,
Salad meals
And just washed
Unfolded, unironed
Clothes.

I deliberated
Over lyrics,
Rhythm, rhymes
And word tricks.

To sweetly suggest
Being a woman
I can multi-task
Comes with a risk:

I need my rest,
My 'me-time',
To hum my rhyme.

What I can,
What I will,
What I won't
I decide,
You don't.
Me-time is MINE

Mother

Happy Birthday Mummy
Happy Birthday Mummy

Our mother
Like you
There's no other.
We love you more
Than words can utter.

For us
You did ensure
The wealth true:
Confidence
In ourself
You grew.

We are strong
Do no wrong
Take on reality
Fight adversity
As growing up
We saw you
A mother
Like none other

Our mother
Like you
There's no other.
We love you more
Than words can utter,
We love you more
Than words can utter.

Eyes

Your eyes reveal

Kindness
Sadness
Madness

Laughter
And
Glitter

Or

Bitter
And
Anger

Keenness
Meanness
Curiosness

Boredom
Or just dumb,

Desire or dream,

Or shielding shrewd
And outright rude,

A guilt sheer
Or fear clear?

Truth sneaks out
From your eyes
And
Reveals both
Your rise, your fall,
Gives a glimpse
Of your soul.

Eyes know your 'all',
Your wounds and wisdom,
Your greed, your glare,
They reflect it all.

What stories silent,
Sealed lips hide,
Your eyes
Whisper them all.
When your lips rest
your eyes work best

What excites you

Fly
Being alive
Is to do
What excites you,
Then you thrive too.

As you walk,
Is there a bounce
In your step?
Is there a smile
On your face set?

Or are you dragging
Yourself to drudgery
Losing the Will?
Depleting your energy?

What excites you,
Will serve others too.

Spread your light,
Be a bright spark,
Overcome gloom,
The doubt and the dark.
Bring in the dawn,
The light of the morn,
And fly high
Singing like the lark.





Be excited!

Detach from Fear

Fear and fall
You may feel fear, 
Sometimes fleeting,
Sometimes intense,
At times momentary,
But seems ever-lasting.

Yes, its natural,
Yes, you have fear,
But I guarantee,
Fear you can conquer.

Having constant fear,
Your mind heavy,
Foggy and unclear,
The victory wheel
How will you steer?

Both feet
Not grounded,
One down,
One up in the air,
Won't you fall,
Come on,
Stand up tall!

Fall and fear,
Fear and fall,
Go together,
Neither is fair,
So do take care.

Don't remain uncertain,
With one shaky foot
Stuck mid-air,
Blank gone the mind,
Empty eyes just stare.

That's how it feels
When fear breeds
And doubt grips,
So stand alert,
Ready to go,
On your toes,
Defeat these two foes.

Fear robs
Your confidence,
In yourself,
In your capability
In your potent
You must trust

At any cost,
What's lost,
You must
Just re-earn.

The midnight oil
You must burn,
Re-prep, re-learn,
Slowly but surely,
Your confidence
You can re-earn.

Your faith
You must restore,
Do pay heed,
Do you hear?
Detach from fear.

Living is thriving,
Not 'safely' surviving,
Be in control,
Your road,
Your life,
Your car,
You are driving!

Life's thrills
Begin beyond
Doubt and fear,
Live life bravely
Fuel with excitement,
Drive mile after mile,
With a confident smile.

Regain my dear
Your strength
Your power.

Beyond fear,
There's much more,
So much more!
Push fear away

In between silences

Sheer poetry
In between silences,
A few words
Fly in,
Birds from faraway
Skies of ideas,
Carrying a new story,
In sheer poetry.

Anticipation

Problems are wrapped solutions. Unwrap and solve!
Step out 

With a feeling

Of anticipation.

Do resolve

To learn from

Both experiences,

Bitter and sweet,

The life lesson:

Duality is the norm,

And co-existence is

To go with the flow,

Or choose to decide

Your own journey,

And harder your boat

You must row.

Continually emerge

Stronger and evolve.

Embrace a pinch

Of true dynamism

Remember wrapped inside

the nagging problem,

Hides the solution.
You are stronger than you believe!

Make this morning good

May you twinkle brighter today!
Make this morning good,
For those around you,
It will get better
So much more,
for you too.

Make this morning good,
For a stranger too,
It will be better
A zillion times
For you!


For every task,
Smile behind the mask,
Walk a little extra,
Do your best,
Be your 'ultra'.

You get to decide
Your coolest version,
Be outstanding,
In thought,
In word
And
In deed,
Do rise high.

Today just outshine,
Show your twinkle,
Be a star bright,
In someone else's sky!
Make this morning good for all around you, it will be better for you too!

GUESS, GUESS, GUESS!

Watch ”INDIA REBORN IN MY SOUL'” on YouTube

Jai Hind

Reflect calmly to find your balance

Meditate to find
The balance
Be mindful
Of how you feel
Keep your mind
Very still.

Meditate to de-stress,
To worries release,
To realign,
Receive peace
And reconnect
With the Divine.






Draw the line.

Life is not about just having. Life is more about living. Life is more about experiencing rather than accumulating. Money is no doubt very essential for enabling empowerment. There are no two things about it. But to live less in order to earn more and just have more at the cost of too much stress and no fun is where we need to truly reflect and slow down on the chase, if we have inadvertently fallen into it in the first place. Life is more when you follow your heart with your mind open and in control. Decide where to draw the line. Its your life and your time on the planet is your greatest gift to live it fully and fulfillingly. Balance is the key. But do not wait too long to do what you really feel like. Do not keep pushing away your heart’s desires too far, too long. Go live well and live more💝.

A new day, a new way…be AWESOME today!

Be YOU and do MORE!
Work becomes effortless

When you perform

With keen interest

And sincerity.


When you do your best

Out of anxiety,

You block the flow

Of fresh ideas.


When you do your best

Calmly and with love,

Your ideas like a fount

Seem endless and

Excite you to do more.



This brings magic

To your work,

This is the 'extra'

In the ordinary:

The extraordinary.



Choose well!
