EMOTIONALLY STRUNG ::POEM

EMOTIONALLY STRUNG

Yet again that SMILE, the Charming;
Clueless Prince, Emotions surging;
Yet again the dreams, heart warming,
Narcissistic, Mysterious, and Misleading;
Yet the Yearning, soon after Seeing,
Hopelessness, emotions over-reacting!!

POEM: YOU ARE

You ARE

Blessings in life, rich or poor;
‘Tis the breath, air and earth.
Moments of life, being present;
Tis the experiences: from present.
Live in the moment, carpe diem;
Tis the moments of present, the past.
Recounting past, the clock set behind;
sweet memories, killing the present.
Blessed you are, why though?;
Is it the power, beauty or riches?
Must be the looks, money and talent?;
No: Tis just that you ARE- the present.

Mental Sanitation – Are you seeking or Obsessing?

Passion, information ‘gathering’ about a thing / person, being ambitious about a goal, enjoying a hobby, liking something or someone, consist of measured efforts taken to achieve the goal- viz information / thing / person / achievement. The pleasure lies in both the journey and the end game. All of that is perfectly healthy- for the self, I mean!

Obsession is being possessed with an idea of finding something/ getting something. Obsession is purely about the idea. The pleasure of end game / what/who is sought becomes immaterial. Root cause for obsession could be anything from “proving to someone or proving to self” without any touch with reality / practicality / acceptance of circumstance or failures.

It is just a thin line between seeking out information/ being ambitious / liking something Or someone – to crossing over to obsession. The thin line itself is a very sharp piece of ice trying to warn you not to cross over to a side that is filled with thorns.

STAY HEALTHY and MENTALLY SANITISED!

Poem :: INDIAN ABHINANDAN

Abhinandan- True hero

Flying across borders, Vigilant with his mission;
Aiming beyond LoC, Shot by rogue elements;
Alerting himself where he is, Plane wreck in soil foreign;
Nation’s interest foremost, swallowing papers torn.


Oh brave Abhinandan, did he see it coming?;
Repeated terrorists’ lashes, Pak army taking in;
What is so pleasant, Except tea lip smacking;
Resolved in his mind, Braved the merciless Foreign.


Khan wanted talks, Indians prayed for him;
Abhinandan‘s bravery stood, making Indians strong;
Indians discussed views, His Safety one – but politics and elections coming;
Our Wing commander Patriot, Hand him over Pakistan.


Where is humanity?, Negotiating peace and convention;
Are we doomed, is war the calling?;
Nations now know Abhinandan, Media is bane and boon;
Wagah border becomes special, Welcoming back, Abhinandan !

POEM – THE ETERNAL WAIT

THE ETERNAL WAIT

Seasons come seasons go,
To be or not to be, The eternal wait.

Sunshine again, night is out,
Thy could bellow Just no!

Summer gone, winter too,
‘Tis Spring but The eternal wait!

Thy hath important things to do,
Bad memory colour seasons white.

Where art thou, seasons have passed,
‘Tis not future of nation!
‘Tis question is simply to be or not~

POEM – UNKNOWN ANGEL

UNKNOWN ANGEL

Class he looks, Crass he writes
This Gem boy I know, man he definitely is,
Possesses wealth of knowledge though carries that temper,
He stands for the right and ambushes the wrong.

Class he looks, crass he writes
This sweetness I know, reserved otherwise he is,
Loves his cinemas and being drama king to the core,
Despises being captured despite smile that is charming.

Class he looks, crass he writes
Opinionated man I know, beautiful heart his is.

Movie Review

“Gully Boy”

Zoya Akhtar has brought another level of freshness!

The story shows the independent lives and struggles faced by the couple Safina (Alia) and Murad (Ranveer) which is independent of their love for each other. Zoya has kept out the cliche script – where girl meets boy and one of them is trying to adjust their life around another’s struggle.

Fantastic acting by pretty much entire cast and MAN that’s huge! The eye candy, the great find of Zoya – MC SHER (played by the cute and sexy – new face – Siddhant Chaturvedi) stands out for his performance. My friends and me walked out of the theatre being convinced he was a rapper in real life until we read up and that this is his debut movie! Siddhant Chaturvedi with his delectable looks and talents sounds promising and he is definitely going places in his life!

Gully Boy – redefines perceptions !
