    Our Bodies

    Our bodies are not artefacts
    Put up for display.
    They are not ornaments
    Meant to gleam lifelessly.
    They are living beings
    That work day and night.

    To fight ailments
    And to grow too
    Is a wonderful part of the framework of you.
    They can swiftly heal wounds
    And fight for you
    Even as your tears pool.
    Strength as such makes us inevitably cool.
    So don’t let others’ senseless ruse
    Break your bones
    Which can't even be broken by stones.

    "Good morning sunshine! "
    She was not one for nicknames
    But with him it came easy.
    She had always hated the cold.
    Dealing with her iced out heart,
    The nickname seemed fitting
    "You know why I call you sunshine? "
    "Cus no matter your mood you always shine!
    Sometimes overshadowed by dark clouds,
    Sometimes by the moon. "
    He was so warm, so very warm.
    She liked being kind to him but it was selfish actually.
    People were not used to kindness , so they either took advantage of it or she adapted to bond.
    Being kind to him allowed that part of her to breathe.
    It was all true though, like two sides to a coin.
    She felt the warmth spread through her chest again.
    She really did hate the cold.
    He was truly like the sun, shining on all her dark areas and warming all the cold ones.
    His nickname was so apt, she smiled.
    "Goodnight sunshine."
    He deserved all her kindness.
    He was her selfish kindness.

    If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
    What would it be.. what would it be..
    If only i had such a wondrous power, i would change people's hearts to only embody
    kindness, peace, love and empathy..
    So that there's no souls that weep
    when it gets dark and cold at night..
    And when there's no light.
    But someone is always there to guide you with a flashlight,
    So you don't get lost, or leave behind pieces of you,
    You may never find..
    A world.. where everyone greets you with a smile..
    A warm hug and words that are kind.
    Where everyone is happy and sun shines so bright,
    that you forget there's also something as dark as the forest night.
    And oh what I'd do to be part of such a world, for just a moment..
    Where peace comes to you as easily..
    As a calm sea
    Whose waves wash at your feet
    Only to take all sorrows and woes away..
    And to leave you only in immense peace..
    Peace.. peace.. and only peace.
    Where animals can breathe free.
    Nature is as beautiful and undisturbed as it should be..
    That's the kind of world my heart will continue to ache for.
    Until i am alive.
    And what comes before my eyes.. in this world..
    Only makes me wish for such a world..
    Oh where there's no hatred.. greed.. desires to kill,
    All beauty and peace..
    #kindness #peace

    Treat everyone equally, but choose your time wisely.

    Everyone deserves to be treated equally, irrelevant of their circumstances, class and status. Everyone is human at the end of the day, and everyone is trying from their own relative degree of understanding in life. Learn better empathy, learn to be indifferent in treatment, but also learn right time allocation. Having a good heart and treating everyone equally, does not mean you are obliged to give everyone the same amount of time. Time is a limited resource, it's the one thing you can't get back once gone, people will come and go at different points in your timeline, but you're the only one who's going to be from the beginning of it till the very end. Until you get to your final destination, know the right balance, you're only human too.

    Keep shining,
    with love.

    Feelings !

    Witnessing a year filled with troughs was difficult for me. Not only for me, but the entire human race faced the consequences in the name of pandemic. Every aspect of a person's life was affected whether it's mental, social, economical etc.

    As we come across that disastrous impact of pandemic, we still feel the unhealed wounds.
    But, the irony is 'we are Breathing'. As long as we are Breathing, we have to dive into the solutions of our survival.

    We lose, we gain, we fall, we climb - This series goes on.

    I am also one of those among you all who is still breathing. And this adds another year in my life. Today, as I turn another year old, I wish to change myself for better.

    Following are my resolutions :

    Being mentally and physically healthy
    Saving money as much as I can
    Have a general amiable bond with everyone
    Quit all the past negative relationships
    Address my creativity
    Dump my anger in the dustbin
    Write for social causes
    Pray and donate for the welfare of humanity
    Being always thankful for the facilities I have
    Regret less about what I have lost
    Try to be fearless and quit Overthinking
    Take negative comments lightly

    I am uncertain about how many of the above I'll conquer. But, I know I am breathing ...!

    Wishing good day to all

    Is kindness really a weakness?
    I've met people that gives so much of themselves away and get told that they are weak
    But what about kindness makes you so weak?
    Nowadays it's becoming so rare it's unique
    I'd like to believe that those who are kind and can love no matter the scars they've collected are nothing but brave
    To give even though you are mocked, that is something special
    To have a broken heart and still find the courage to share love, that is strength
    I don't think being kind is weak
    It's a mark of true bravery
    But dont forget to be kind to yourself too

    ഒരു നല്ല വാക്ക്
    ഒന്നും പ്രതീക്ഷിക്കാതെ ഉള്ള സഹായം
    നന്മ നിറഞ്ഞ ഒരു ചിരി
    അലിവോടെയുള്ള പെരുമാറ്റം
    ഇവയൊക്കെ ഒരു പക്ഷെ ലഭിക്കുക
    ഉറ്റവരിൽ നിന്നാകില്ല
    പകരം , ജീവിതത്തിൽ അപരിചിതമായി
    കണ്ടുമുട്ടുന്നവരിൽ നിന്നുമാകാം
    കൃതജ്ഞതയോടെ ഓർക്കുക അവരെ
    അവർ ശരിക്കും നമ്മുടെ ഉള്ളിൽ
    സന്തോഷം നിറച്ചവരാണ്
    ഉള്ളിൽ നിന്ന് വരുന്ന സന്തോഷം
    ഇന്നത്തെ കാലത്തിൽ കണ്ടെത്താൻ
    ഒത്തിരി പാടാണ് ...
    കനിവ് കാട്ടുന്നവരോട്
    കൃതാർത്ഥത സൂക്ഷിക്കുക ഏപ്പോഴും
    അത് നമ്മളെയും കനിവാർന്നവരാക്കും !!!

    Years ago before the creation of man, the Almighty created 3 unique birds of different species namely; Vulture, Ground hornbill and Cattle geret.

    They are all birds and Cattle geret is the least. The three of them were so poor and wretched, that they decided to pay the Almighty a visit for help. When they got to the heavens, He gave one of them and amount of money to use it down on earth. So he commented them into the world to spend the money however they want. When the vulture got into the world, it lavished the money on bean-cake. The vulture rushed home and filled it's empty stomach till it was filled up and satisfied. The ground hornbill on the other hand bought pap and took it all alone.

    Cattle geret was the least of them. He took a deep thought on how to spend the money. The bird finally came up with an idea, it went out, gathering all other poor and tiny birds to have a yeast with him. He brought a lot of fruit juice and they all enjoyed themselves.

    After their sojourn in the world, the Almighty asked them to pay him a visit to give account of how they have all spent their money. The Almighty faced the vulture and asked; "how did you spend your money?"

    It told the Almighty; "I bought bean-cake to quench my hunger. I'm very grateful and well satisfied, my lord."

    The Almighty smiled and faced the ground hornbill, to also give account on the money it received. It responded that it took paper and got satisfied afterwards. The Almighty, then faced Cattle geret.

    It craved the indulgence of the Almighty, faced back and called other birds. Of course, they all wanted to give gratitude to their provider as well. They all looked happy, satisfied and grateful and they had followed Cattle geret. It told the Almighty; I came across these other birds and bought fruit juice. We all drank it together ourselves. We drank till our fullest and we're all satisfied. After saying this, it faced the other tiny birds and ordered them to thank their the Almighty. Other birds bowed and prostrated. They were all excited to show gratitude and the Almighty was thrilled.

    The Almighty faced the vulture and told it; You were selfish in spending your money alone. From now on, you'll have a bald head. That is why vultures have bald head today.

    The Almighty moved to the ground hornbill and said. You're greedy to take the pap all alone and the Almighty pronounced go it redisease on it. And so it has been till this day. It has that disease under it's throat that is incurable.

    Then, Almighty turned to Cattle geret that stood with other birds and announced in a very pleased tune; You are kind and generous. From today henceforth, all birds will always accomplish you wherever you go. You'll be a leader that would be given by others. If you look up to the sky during sunset, you'll see all those  birds  flying together. There used to be a very tiny bird leading those birds called evening lilies. They accompany the day during the evening. They're the most honoured of all birds you'll ever see.



    Here's a short story, from my books, UNDER THE AFRICAN SKY on Wattpad. I decided to share with you. It's a short story that speaks about kindness and love. Especially when you have none. Be kind at your poorest times, and love others even though the world is against you. Love and kindness is the greatest virtue of all. This is also a myth/folklore.

    To be kind is one small way to show that you are engaged and respect our connectivity and our humanity.

    पाई पाई जोड़ रहा हु, कभी दो कभी ढाई जोड़ रहा हु।
    जो मन मार कर करना पडे, तो अपने गिले शिकवे निचोड़ रहा हु।
    जो देखे थे कभी मैंने सपने, वो सारे अपने मरोड़ रहा हु।
    मायूस ना हो गलत ना समझ, ये सब तेरे आने वाले सपनों के लिए जोड़ रहा हु।
    जता नहीं रहा के क्या क्या किये जा रहा हु, तुझे देखकर अपने सपनों से भी ज्यादा खुश हु।
    इसे अब क्या नाम दूं नही पता, कोई शिकन नही क्योंकि तू भी तो मै ही है।
    मैंने तुझे नहीं तूने मुझे जनम दिया है, नये सिरे से अपने सपनों को ही तो जी रहा हु।
    सुनाया करते थे अक्सर, "तु बाप बनेगा तो पता चलेगा", तेरे इस जिंदगी मे आने से ही तो सीख रहा हु।
    अपनी पंक्तियां लिख चुका अब तेरी जोड़ रहा हु, अपनी सबकी खुशीया कभी दो कभी ढाई जोड़ रहा हु।

    Fabric of Thoughts

    Lives are lived amidst, conclusions & confusions.
    Away from facts, oblivious of understandings.

    Labels, and gossips have a role to play.
    Putting relationship at stake and bonds to slay.

    The thread of communication lies at bay.
    Assumptions & delusions win the day.

    Lives are mortal & time is short.
    Whether we do justice to ourselves is worth a thought.

    Serene ways can always be sought.
    Not all the situations are wars to be fought.

    Beyond and deep lie right & wrong.
    We stick to the surface & get it all wrong.

    In the running times we just need a halt.
    Realistically ponder and levitate the fault.

    Everything is always simple and clear.
    We just need to be calm, we just need to be fair.

    Have vast fondness for different languages
    could only learn few..
    than surrendered to the
    universal one called kindness.

    I really don't care about negative opinions and treatments from other human being.

    What matters is what's in my heart, how is my heart and what my heart has to offer.

    And that's LOVE, CARE & KINDNESS

    You never taught me Forgiveness and Kindness.


  • discreetliterature 7w


    It's hard to be kind when you know deep inside you don't wish to be that.
    Patience is a difficult game
    when all you have is a desparate mind
    But having faith in your heart surely helps to make peace with everything.

    Thank You

    Has anyone told you lately
    that you are important?
    Have you received a
    Thank You
    for something that you did?
    We usually say “Thank you” back
    but never really absorb
    our own kindness and
    efforts for the deed.
    Take a moment and look
    back at your contributions
    and give yourself a smile
    as you actually feel the
    “Thank you” for which
    you have earned.
