HAPPY OMANI WOMEN’S DAY

Happy Women's Day!
We celebrate being us,
We balance rules,
That are just,
We draw the boundaries,
With mutual trust.

May a lady never be
Too eager to please,
Or forced to live
In dread or fear,
Cry alone or hide a tear.

It's 2022,
She's talented too;
Free to choose,
What to do.

It fills the heart
With hope and joy
To see Omani women
In every field lead,
She may or may not
Choose to cook,
To stay home and clean
She's free and does
What she feels like,
She is free to choose,
It's her life.

She may become a leader,
Researcher or Engineer,
Or a happy home maker,
Do both maybe,
Niether in extreme.
It's her choice,
Whatever her dream.

Today let's celebrate,
Insist she shows
Some self love,
Enjoys a good treat,
Or shops
Some lovely jewellery,
A new dress, or
A brand new Lamborghini;
Or may all she does need
Is Me-time by the beach,
Or a yoga retreat.

If you care for her,
Show true respect
And smile and say OK,
Let her disagree on views,
Let her choose to refuse.

She can grow in many ways
The list is endless,
Its her only life,
She must live it
Happily,regret less,
Be treated like a queen,
Wear her crown
And follow her dream.

For some of us

May their soul rest in eternal peace
For some of us

From this day, today,

This world will never be

The same again.

A few words unsaid,

A few tears unshed,

Will forever remain.

For some of us now on,

A hollow feeling,

An emptiness,

A sense of loss,

A long, quiet silence,

Will forever remain.

This world will never be

The same again.

To those 'some of us'

Whose hearts have broken,

I say, let us bid

Our final farewell,

To the dear departed,

Who now lies in peace

Rises to God,

No longer in pain.


Without them,

Our world will never be

The same again,

As they left quietly,

On the final journey

Rising to Paradise,

Welcomed by eternity-

Leaving with us,

Pure, precious values,

And pearls of wisdom,

And unforgettable

Moments and memories.

To those 'some of us'

Inconsolable, tearful,

Today in this unfamiliar

'Never the same again'

Wide wide world,

Those 'some of us'

Feel their absence in

This familiar homeland,

As they try their grief

To stoically withstand,

I too, with them, stand,

And pray that always

God holds their hand.
Gallery

What matters

What someone said, hurt.
It mattered, it hurt.
Its over.
Focus not what they said,
But how you felt.

How you feel determines your emotional well being.
So choose to be emotionally resilient by being flexible. Everytime you hurt, make a conscious move to come out of that experience. You may start singing or reading a joke and laughing or simply taking a very long walk, and sorting out your thoughts and releasing the slightest discomfort brought about by someone else's toxicity that hurt you within. Overcome this and flex your emotions. Meeting mean persons or having bad experiences is inevitable.But overcoming your sadness and pain is upto you and you alone. Love yourself enough.

You shall OVERCOME!

Adieu, Dear Queen

Long lived the Queen
Seventy years

Of Queening,

Through

The terrific,

The tumultuous,

And the tragic.


Choosing Grace

And trusting God,

She rose to the call of duty,

An epitome of elegance

Who redefined monarchy.


May her soul rest

In eternal peace,

As we bid adieu,

And deeply condole

Her kith and kin,

How do we get used to,

Of Great Britain,

Sans the Queen?
May her blessings shower upon the Royal family.
Gallery

Have a better day than yesterday!

Choose better.
Choose well.

Choose
Silence not arguing.
Choose
Hope not worrying.
Choose
Activities not idling.
Choose
Learning not lazing.

Choose better,
Right now,
Not later!

Choose better today

Happy Teacher’s Day

Should I thank you life?
Should I thank you Life,
For what you have taught me?
It is irreversible and unforgettable.
You give no second chance
There is no time
For a backward glance.

You have set
The toughest lessons
And sudden twists
And unexpected turns
And all this
On slippery and steep pathways,
With no promises of getaways.

You give no hint
Of the next test
So brutal are your methods of teaching,
So Life, tell me
How do I thank you,
For being my ruthless,
Ultimate Guru?

The answer-less questions of life

Let's wish all will cure,
From our heart,
Prayerful, kind and pure.

You are blessed with.

Come, September

Experience the shades of your emotions. Keep them light or bright.
Come September,
Like a dry leaf
Shake off
Everyone's grief.

Come September,
Make life better,
Help everyone shrug,
Each big and small grudge

Come September,
Help all remember,
You precede October,
And the last quarter,
Of this year,
And it's time
To acknowledge
That in the Fall,
Nature let's go
All dried and old,
Bares itself to the cold

Likewise, September,
Let everyone's heart Begin to clear,
Of worry and fear,
Of a frown or a hidden tear
And await calmly
The end of the year.
Turn over a new leaf…

What upsets a person?

Teach yourself to adjust your thinking. Have minimal expectations. Be flexible in expecting the unexpected.
We are upset and disturbed many a times.
Who upsets us?
Obvious answer is people around us.
But is it the right answer?
Nope.
Our expectations, when not met, upset us.

So if we want to remain calm and peaceful, what should we observe? What should we change?

Our expectations and our company.

Expect less or nothing and genuine people will surprise you. Bond more with those who share strong values and ethics.

Move away from toxic, selfish, greedy opportunists, using silence and detachment. Send them light and forgiveness as you detach.

Your peace and calm are your choice.
Your expectations are your choice.
Our life is our breath. Do breathing exercises to calm your chatter-ful mind.

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.

Happy 76th Independence Day!

असतो मा साद गमय, तमसो मा ज्योतिर् गमय, मृत्योर मा अमृतम् गमय

Lead us from ignorance to truth, Lead us from darkness to light, Lead us from death to deathlessness.
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 earth

A glimpse of heaven,

And be a blessing,

To all the Living.

Wonder why

The squirrel seems 
Less playful,
The wind seems
Much heavier,
The sun seems
Much distant,
The laughter seems
Much hollower,
The chat seems
Much mundane,
The debate seems
Much effort,
The meal seems
Much familiar,
The water seems
Much nauseous,
The heart seems
Much numb,
The mind seems
Much dumb.
It's one of those days,
Only music seems
Mystical, magical,
Music has it's healing ways.

July
The rain clouds,
Bring relief,
To the lands,
Thirsty and dry;
It's July.

Nature seems to ask not
When, what, who, where,
And why:
Some places flood,
In July,
Some are too parched,
Still very dry.

Clouds and life,
Both are so random,
Dear July,
Please put everything,
Back in tandem.

Vivid memories

Share love and laughter
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!

Real life, real folks, real togetherness.

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.

Dear June,

June, the summer holiday month
Dear June,

A lot in the world,
We find, is out of tune.

As you are coming soon,
May I remind you,
To use all your powers,
To bring relief showers.

Relief from war,
Relief from hate,
Relief from pain.

A good amount of rain,
Enough of food grain,
Please would you bring,
Energy that's new,
And fresh and healing?

Pack along,
A hopeful song,
To be sung in chorus,
Let's sing all June,
Notes in a merry tune.

Please pack all these,
And lots of good luck,
With you, as you come,
Dear June,
My dear June.
May June be cool!

The other half of 2022 arrives


To sun-hot May,
The summer-bringer,
In days few,
We bid adieu.

Arrives June,
Along comes the monsoon,

Cool the land too,
Welcome, 'warm' welcome,

But simply couldn't do?

The joy of colours
In the cycle of Nature
In life and death

Add colour to Nature

The reminder,
Do something worthwhile
Make someone smile,
Perhaps is the lesson.

Decluttering and closures

Let go. Feel lighter.
What makes decluttering difficult is letting go.

You loved that stuff
Of very long ago,
But now,
You don't need it
You know.

If you want to go
With the flow,
Clutter can't burden you,
Attachments to old energy
Can't withhold you
From being ready
And receiving all new.

At the moment,
It might be hard,
But overcome the urge
Not to let go,
Do not hoard,
You need to declutter
You need to purge,
To let the new
Come on board.

Closures are necessary.

The Art of Worrying

The Art of Worrying
A nagging worry

Might be an opportunity

To bring about change

And turn the worry

Into a personal change,

Take responsibility,

To improve self,

Change a 'given' belief,

Re-question, redefine

What bothers you and why.

Think beyond the clouds,

Of anxiety and worry,

They may shower upon you,

A refreshing insight,

Or wisdom anew.
See every anxiety and worry as a call for change.

May

Looks familiar? May you declutter. The Kon Mari way.
May everything go right, 
May we all feel peace,
And we may all heal.

May we all decide,
To live in the moment,
May all shed off
Our memories of lack,
Our painful past,
And wear a smile,
And ponder for a while,
How our souls
From fear of lack
Lead to some greed,
May we gently
From this be freed.

Clutter crowds the mind,
Creativity gets no space,
And is left behind.

Why do we accumulate,
More and more,
When we know for sure,
We can use only few,
So keep the best,
Declutter helps us cure,
Brings us mental peace,
We feel sanctity pure.

We have to leave,
All this behind,
From time to time,
To ourselves,
May we gently remind?

I believe, I trust

Success
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 stroke of bad luck...etc.

I feel above and beyond the obvious, there are four more things- our success is attained as it is:

First, God is answering someone else's prayer.

Two, our success is fruit of our ripened past good karma.

Three, our success is a blessing recieved.

Four, our success is pre determined, our path calls us, as we are chosen to be instrumental in accomplishing larger designs for the larger good.

So is our success something to be proud of, or not?
I think actually it is better to keep our grace and have a gratitude-filled heart towards a universal supreme energy and understand our success as a rich and truly humbling experience when we count how many people indirectly or directly helped us get this success, get us here.
So ours, is then, the role of an instrument and to be chosen as an instrument we may feel gratitude, exercise detachment and show affection.
We must do what we do to
feel alive with excitement while doing our work, feel alive with joy when we accomplish, live in that moment fully and then detach and move on to something different and new- for a rolling stone gathers no moss, and well, we cannot cling to one success forever just like we cannot keep on eating sugar forever!

Taste success, devour it, savour it, then 'gargle' with humbleness and gratitude, cleaning your mind, heart and soul and keep moving on...
Move on to do more, to new beginnings!

Uncertainty is okay

Wait…
Uncertainty:
It is a gap,
A blur,
The distance,
Between the answer,
And its question.

It is the time
When we have to sit back,
Not knowing,
What's next in line,
Feeling fear and lack.
Its best to wait,
And let the universe,
Gather its intelligence,
And put the best stuff,
Together for us.

Uncertainty is quite
An humbling experience.
It makes us patient,
And lean on faith,
And seek divine guidance.

Just breathe.
Just be.
May the universe conspire,
And may you wait out;
For those who wait patiently,
Also serve.

Accept uncertainty,
Let life unfold.
In the face of uncertainty,
Be stoic, be bold.

Gallery

Have faith

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 trust
May your soul be refined,
And in blessed love,
May you remain entwined.
Remain blessed

The only control

Refuse to be run over by circumstances
In every difficult situation in life, the only way to be in charge is to control your mind,control your tongue and control your actions.
It is smarter to be more in control of yourself than to try and control others.
Silencing the mind and overcoming negativity, overthinking and judgemental presumptions, are all necessary in trying times.

In the end, its all about this:
You can't control others, you can't control the world, so just learn to control yourself.

The power lies within.
Hold your voice until you need to use your roar
Gallery

Closure

In the beginning, is the end.
At some point of time,
Its just time,
To leave a job,
To leave a relation,
To leave a nation.

Some by choice,
So we may rejoice,
While some endings
Just are meant,
Pre written, predestined.

Perhaps a reluctant exit,
A heart-heavy bye bye,
At crossroads, we arrive.

Eyes we may half close,
Refusing to face
The uncertainty upfront,
Though questions chase,
No answers to hunt.

Then tears escape,
And sighs release
Lips we may seal,
Quiet and low we feel.

Each closure
Brings emptiness too,
Ends a phase of life,
Perhaps long overdue?

Look towards the new,
Watch the morning light,
The dawn adorns
A slightly golden hue.
Soak in the sun's rays,
May your energy renew.

You are enough,
To take care of you,
To yourself, do remind
To seek and look,
You will surely find,
Hope is within you,
Courage exists there too.
Give yourself quiet time to do proper closures
Gallery

Control

Think about it
'You can never expect life to be as you would like life to be. But you can always expect the most carefully thought of ways to deal with what is thrown at you. So how you respond is the key to your own well being.
Do not rush into a reaction immediately. Take your time.
You choose to be a highly inflammable chemical or not, in the moment. Be gentle to yourself.

Increase your self control. Score high in it. Self control is a challenge. Score atleast 70% and aim 90% in 5-10 years".

Think about it.😊
Good morning Duniya!

To your first branch,
To your first tree?

Do you only move forward,
Never glance backward,
Never sigh,
Just fly high?

Me too, a migrant,
Between cities,
Between tongues,
Between thoughts,
Between my origin
And final destination,
Here and now, on earth,
Only pursuing
Peace is worth,
I perch for a while,
I just have one lifetime,
So, I search for peace,
From mile to mile,
And ultimately realise
Peace itself perches
In my heart and my smile.



Peace is within.

The Art of Leaving

Leaving is an art.

Smilingly depart.

Not all you meet qualify

For a heart-to-heart.

You can't verify

Any person or relation

'Beforehand'

Only afterwards,

You realise

How genuine they are.

Time reveals,

Always, and also

Time heals.

Leave, don't grieve,

Don't pine

For what is not,

Don't in Moha-maya

Get so caught,

Shallow human selfishness

Has no limit,

Nor measure,

Gather yourself,

Choose a closure.

The 'art of leaving',

Means moving on,

Into new worlds.

In new beginnings,

Do start believing.

Facing towards the Sun and simply being happy

Not a great morning, I say, but do what you can and just pray.
Ces`t la vie!
The world is at times
A 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,
I wish good luck
Comes your way,
Hope all the odds
You do overcome,
And find solutions,
Where there seemed none.
You’ll get there…be back in control soon! This too shall pass.
