Declutter the clutter ...

Declutter the clutter ...

I want to declutter the clutter;
So thoughts, ideas flow instantly.
So sift and sieve, I must ;
cleaning, wiping years of dust.

From the open spaces energy flows.
Onto a radiance, shining it glows.
Clearing spaces, sifting and sieving.
Eyes closed, I am yet dreaming ...

On Teachers Day... a Tribute to Dr. S. Radhakrishanan

Indeed feeling so proud on Teachers Day that the whole Nation from Teachers, Students and Parents and so many people could together not only remembered Dr. S. Radhakrishnan and paid our sincere respects to his spirit and yet we all were glued onto our TV sets watching children from all over India and our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi who not only vibed and connected with one and all but also brought us all together as 'one' for the cause of sound Education, equal opportunity and progress for one and all .... felt touched and yet connected ! Absolutely wonderful and fantastic way to bring us all together .... India will truly Rise !!

On Teachers Day ... ever grateful to all my Teachers and Professors

Happy Teachers Day!! 
To All my most Respected Teachers and Professors Bushra AhujaMa'am, Mrs Raina Ma'am, Singhal Sir, Mrs Amita Singh Ma'am, Dr. Prof. Ashtekar Ma'am, Late Dr. Prof. Lobo Sir, Prof. Mooghat Sir, Prof. Dr. Kulkarni, Dr. Phadke Ma'am, Mrs Dugal Ma'am .... and so many, many other School Teachers & Professors whom I still vividly recollect by face though forgotten their names ....
In deep gratitude to all my Teachers and Professors who guided me and helped me on my path with their foresight, kindness and ever abundant affection despite all the little blunders we kept making whilst growing up.... Thank you so much for always being there for me then and even now ; if not far or in spirit, I am truly indebted to you ....

Happy Janamashtami and Happy Navroze Parsi New Year


Sincere apologies that I would like to update on my blog that I wished Happy Navroze Parsi New year and inadvertently used the word 'Pateti' which means repentance... Regret using this and apologise sincerely to all my Parsi Friends and hope you will forgive my slip of typing here.
What I intended and wanted to say was 'Happy Janamashtami and Happy Navroze Parsi New Year' both being followed with the same faith in the divine, fervour and celebrations and all this happens in India.

India gives a whole hearted Mandate for Change. India Will Rise once again soon ...To Be the Change that we want to see..

India will Rise, once again….  soon!

And what an astounding, thumping, mind boggling victory of sheer numbers and a resounding success for Our Indian Democracy!! A clean straightforward majority and a clear Mandate for Narendra Modi andBharatiya Janata Party (BJP) 'Of the people, by the people and for the people of India' ! For once, I am hopeful for India to Rise once again and spear head towards progress and growth and to be all that each Indian could be!!

I am sure he will deliver all this and more through the collective efforts of all the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)workers ...
 India will Rise once again under Narendra Modi 's strong able Leadership....

It takes sheer courage, determination and nerves of steel to get such a whole hearted majority such as the historical one today, especially in sucha vast, diverse Democracy as ours in India... Yet, the waves of Change has swept the masses and the tides will carry our Ships onto Lands unexplored yet .... making undelible marks of our own ... And the World is already cognizant of the fact that India is slowly and surely Rising with Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led Government at its helm.... Challenges are a plenty and I'm sure they will be delivered ..... After all one does need time to undo the errors of decades .... yes, I feel strongly about this and sad sometimes that each one of us Indians has yet to cross so many hurdles; let them be those of hunger, poverty, education or even basic sanitation and hygiene .... But at least the lamps have been lit by millions of Indians who gave their clear mandate .... voting for Change, voting for Hope, voting for Progressive Development .... And They ALL Won!!  Today, all Indian people I feel have been joined together by one common thread and that's National pride and belonging and a certain hope and faith .... why then are so many Indians here and abroad glued onto TV sets, talking only about the Results where ever they are- at home, at work or even in the market place or at a local vegetable vendor's ! Yes, India Will Rise, once again ... soon ....!!

'True Life' - a poem from my book 'From the Silence Within'

"True Life"  10th May' 2000  
(Published in my book 'From the Silence Within' available in Crossword and via  Amazon, uRead websites.

Will I mark my time unheard, unwept, unsung?
Will I like all the others before me, simply be washed ashore?
Or will I ride over the currents; and the striking waves.
Plummeting, pummeling against jarring rocks.
Reach out onto distant lands and shores.

I can feel the tide sweeping over the sand.
Dragging me, drowning me at times.
Will I manage to get a foothold?
Will I be able to swim my way through?

Fleeting thoughts of rest and heavens beckon me.
But how can I lie down, while so much is yet to be accomplished ?
And those deep blue seas no longer fill me with awe.
For I know I have to dive deep down below.

Swimming, diving, searching the yawning depths.
I am sure one day I’ll find those precious quaint pearls.
And living, swimming; managing to keep afloat.
I realize what this means to be of True Life …

Happy Holi to all ... Wishing you all have radiant, colourful, joyful and successful lives.....

I am so glad to see the friendly smiling 'Google' logo back on my laptop once again...

My broadband internet connection had been down for the past five days in a row now and though I have been knee deep engrossed in work, family and my beti's studies, somewhere I had missed the internet and reading, connecting with the world...

My fingers had been itching, almost yearning to sit down and type out my feelings, thoughts that

seemingly I had been keeping at bay for a long time now...

But before I begin my rambling and writing (and before the internet decides to go poof again!!

Allow me to wish you a Very Happy Holi!! :)

So here's Wishing you & all your family a Very Happy, colourful, joyful and radiant Holi ....

Here's an article on Holi the Festival of colours ... Written by Abhi ...The moving finger writes blog...

that I couldn't help reading and sharing ...

The moving finger writes.............: Holi- the festival of colours: Holi is the festival of colours, when the country is drenched in colours, and a general air of festivity is palpable all around. F...
