    Rush and rush

    Running for nowhere to reach

    Jumping into the air of everything

    Adding strains of loads unto the self

    Race for the recognition

    Competiting for the success

    To have an edge over the rest

    Credibility of enhancing the credentials

    .
    .
    .

    Sometimes to reach out to the sky

    We become alien to our own earth !

    [Never been much of a runner.]

    ------------------------------


    My endurance wore thin, I gave up during the race. I see everyone else still running and I sink low in pace with my place. I can not continue now; marked, scuffed and chafed. I just wish I never stopped running when I would end up in better days. If I just continued stride I'd be secure and not a case, of self destruction, and of dilutant I'd have no trace.

    I ask myself, but have no answer, as to why I did not finish; or how I knew things were supposed to go the way I had envisioned. And how I never expected to get further than how far I got, or to win with high pair on the last card life's dealer dropped.

    I gave myself this bad beat, my sore feet and weak heart forsook me. I curse my own self for this twisted path I've took me.

    Unjust

    Black, white, yellow and brown
    The colors of one’s right, that makes it wrong
    Judging people by their skin
    How is that not a sin?

    I’d rather be oblivious
    Spread my wings and be curious

    I do not want to judge people by how they look
    From ancient text to contemporary book
    Have led me to believe - There is something wrong
    Prejudice is ignorance- unmindful and strong

    So, I refuse to be the one!

    I’d rather be oblivious
    Spread my wings and be curious
    Being different shouldn’t be the reason
    To be punished and to be beaten

    So, I refuse to be the one,
    Instead, I want to welcome you in my heart
    To be united and
    not be APART

    Breech Journey

    From God's breath of life in mum's womb,
    An embryo was formed, a peculiar;
    Head up, feet down, why didn't I turn?
    I was conceived, received in wonder.

    Did the thunder beings favor me?
    Did lightning strikes when I was born?
    I didn't choose nor did I plan this;
    Did God thinks it's best for me?

    Breech birth it was but not Caesarean
    For I did come out of mum's birth canal;
    Was I forced to do it or did I finally decide
    To face the world with strange eyes?

    Childhood years were not so pleasant
    With all its drama, pain, and lessons;
    An outcast in this exile, I bore
    The weight of my life's purpose.

    Darkness was fond of me, I adopted
    The void, the depths, the fire, the storms;
    My soul was battered, mind injured
    From fighting foes and my violent demons.

    Innocence torn like broken angel wings,
    My wounds they turned into wisdom;
    Obstacles bumped along the way, I fell;
    Thank God, my Messiah caught me.

    I came out fine, resilient, and able
    With carefree, happy-go-lucky nature;
    I withstood the serious blows and thrived;
    God upheld me in the power of His might.

    With all sobriety I focused on the race
    By the grace of my Lord and Savior;
    He shall finish in me until my last journey
    And I shall dwell in His Presence forever.

    THE WAY MY JOURNEY GOES

    I stepped up cautiously to the track
    I hesitated for a second, wondering if it was too late to go back
    I glanced both ways and blocked out my doubt
    That was when the shot rang out

    I ran, my heart beating like a drum and blood pumping throughout my legs
    My nerves calmed slightly as I sped across
    I could feel the suspenseful eyes on me
    Almost hearing their curious thoughts on who the winner would be

    A final burst spread through me as I neared the finish line
    I used all of my strength to race across time
    I leaped, my foot lightly brushing the ground
    I had finished, and I felt like a king being crowned

    Biker boy

    There was a boy named Rahul. He was from wealthy background. His parents lived abroad. Who had a special love for bicking. Who comes to school with a super bick. And has a super bick gang too. A crazy one. Rahul was below average in studies not too bad but not good enough.yes!!! But he was bad in maths.

    This is the time when he was in 10th grade. Every test of maths he fails and failes and failes. He had a plan of completing the boards and go to the parents. His teachers knew that too. his math teacher took one for the team and worked so hard on his studies. After hard work of several weeks there was some positive growth in hos studies.

    The teacher worked extra hard and did overtime for this kid. This is not common at all. But his teacher knew he has good brain just out of focus. They worked hard and hard and the boy was getting better and better.now in tests he is scoring way more than previously je had done. So from below average he was getting to the above average zone. Everybody is happy at this point.

    Now this is pre boards time.he is as prepared as never before. And had a good examination. On the results day the teachers are waiting for the boy whom they did not expected 72% marks in pre boards. The math teacher was very happy and was trying to call the boy because it was getting late. But the mobile is switched off. Suddenly a boy comes up to the staff room and said "There was an accident on the highway and Rahul got crushed by a truck and he hot on the spot death "And there was just silence in the room.

    I always used to say,
    I am brown, the color of dirt.
    Rain on me all you want, smelling heavenly,
    I exude pertichor.

    Most recently, I have added on,
    I am brown, also the color of Caramel.
    Sweet, fragrant, delish and yum,
    Don’t get me too angry though,
    I can also burn your little tongue.

    Caramel

    I am brown, the color of dirt,
    This never fazed me; that’s just how I was brought up.
    Yeah, a sneer here and there I have heard,
    Yeah, I have been told to use a lot of turmeric and curd.
    Yeah, I have seen all the lovely and fair advertisements,
    But naah my lovely brown ladies and lads, this ain’t nothing but encouragement.

    I travelled a thousand miles and some more,
    To be told, almost as soon I walked through the door,
    “You’re so brown….”, a guy said,
    I braced myself for impact, readying responses in my head,
    Should I go for, and you’re white,
    Or should I congratulate him for not being color blind.
    Automated responses ready and almost ablaze,
    But I hadn’t prepared for, “Well damn girl, you’re just like caramel”.

    The cheesiest line I had ever heard,
    I almost laughed at this guy’s incredibly lame yet cute effort,
    All automated responses went down the drain.
    And I ended up saying, halting my deflective thought train,
    “Well damn boy, that line’s so cheesy;
    It can probably feed all the pizzas in Italy”

    कभी कभी हम जिन चीजों से दूर भागते है ना
    एक ना एक दिन वो लौट के हमारे सामने जरूर आती हैं
    इसलिए चीजो से दूर मत भागो या तो उन्हे अपना लो
    या फिर उनसे डटकर सामना करो और आखिरी सांस तक करो ❤️

    കറുത്ത ആകാശം.

    ഒരു കുഞ്ഞു കഥ പറയാം.
    ഒരിക്കൽ അമേരിക്കയിലെ ഒരു ഗ്രാമത്തിൽ 'നിയേൽ' എന്ന് പേരുള്ള കറുത്ത വർഗ്ഗകാരനായ ഒരു ബാലൻ താമസിച്ചിരുന്നു.
    കറുത്ത വർഗ്ഗകാരനായതിനാൽത്തന്നെ മറ്റുകുട്ടികളുടെ പരിഹാസ കഥാപത്രമായിരുന്നു നിയേൽ. ഒരിക്കൽ നേരം ഇരുട്ടിയിട്ടും വീട്ടിൽ പോകാതെ തനിച്ച് ഒരു മരത്തണലിൽ വളരെ ദുഃഖിതനായി ഇരിക്കുകയായിരുന്ന നീയെലിനെ കൂട്ടുകാരനായ മിക്കായെൽ കണ്ടു മിക്കായെൽ കാര്യം തിരക്കിയപ്പോൾ കറുത്ത വർഗ്ഗകാരനായ തന്നെ മറ്റുള്ളവർ പരിഹസിക്കുകയും അവരോടൊപ്പം കളിക്കാൻ കൂട്ടില്ല എന്ന് പറഞ് അവനെ മാറ്റി നിർത്തിയെന്നും നിയേൽ മിക്കായെലിനോട് പറഞ്ഞു. ഇത് കേട്ട മിക്കായേൽ നീയെലിന് കറുത്ത ആകാശത്തെ കാണിച്ചു എന്നിട്ട് പറഞ്ഞു : നോക്കു നിയേൽ ഈ കറുത്ത ആകാശമില്ലായിരുന്നെങ്കിൽ വെട്ടിത്തിളങ്ങുന്ന നക്ഷത്രങ്ങളെ കാണാൻ ഒരു ബംഗിയുമുണ്ടാവില്ല. അതുപോലെയാണ് നീയും നിന്റെ കറുപ്പാണ് നിന്നെ മറ്റുള്ളവരിൽ നിന്നും വ്യത്യസ്ഥമാക്കുന്നത്. എല്ലാവർക്കും ഒരേ നിറം ഒരേ കഴിവുകൾ ഒരേ ബുദ്ധി ഒരേ പ്രായം എല്ലാം ഒരുപോലെയാണെങ്കിൽ ഈ ലോകത്തിന്റെ സന്തുലിതാവസ്ഥ എന്താകുമായിരുന്നു?
    പരാജിതനില്ലാതെ ഒരാളും വിജയി ആവുന്നില്ല അതുപോലെ കറുപ്പില്ലാതെ വെളുപ്പും
    ഈ കാണുന്ന ഇരുണ്ട ആകാശം അത് നിയാണ് നിയേൽ. ഇതും പറഞ്ഞ് മിക്കായേൽ നിയെലിന്റെ കൈപിടിച്ചു ഇരുളിൽ മറഞ്ഞു. പിന്നീട് എപ്പഴോ ആ കറുത്ത ആകാശത്തിന് കീഴിൽ നക്ഷത്രങ്ങൾ തിളങ്ങിയെന്ന് കേട്ടു......

    Run your own race

    Life is not less than a marathon race,
    Our tracks are marked to run with grace.
    Focus only on your track,
    Don't try to cross the track even by mistake.
    Comparing yourself with others never helps,
    It will definitely lead to distraction of your focus.
    Once the focus is lost,
    Being on the track is a waste.
    Run the race in your own pace,
    If you want to beat, beat yourself and not others.
    'Run your own race', it may lead to success,
    Don't create a hurdle in other's track, support them with your wishes.

    Study nowadays

    This pace of race,
    For study is different now..

    The need of concentration,
    And a lot of distraction.

    The wrong attraction,
    And least satisfaction.

    Is, the trend now..

    Pushing your limitations
    Is important now..

    And see, your parents has begun,
    The admission of yours..
    And of course,
    May God bless you
    With robotic quality...

    Cuz, there is no place,
    For your creativity!!

    I kept running so fast,
    So fast that I lost sight,
    Of all the things that I left behind,
    And when I looked back,
    I could only see the blank sky,
    The scent of the loneliness,
    that I gasped weighed my shoulders,
    Lost in time and memories,
    I wished this was a dream,
    That I could wakeup from.

    Crashed

    With all of us riding top speed on our bike,
    To have the slightest of lead in the race of life.

    Foolhardily,
    I rammed into your bike from behind,
    Although by mistake,
    It seemed like a stab in your back,

    With my bike now spiralling out of my control,
    I saw you steady yourself and regain control.
    All of a sudden everything was changing,
    Not allowing me to process what's happening

    Ultimately, I crashed into the sideline,
    Hitting bedrock way before finishline.

    Now I have nothing left to achieve,
    Should I just give up and accept defeat?
    But I still want to get up again and ride,
    Not to race, only just for the ride.

    Race

    In the race of life,
    We miss trivial
    But treasured moments.

    The chirpy banter of birds;
    The swooshing rustle of leaves;
    The gurgling fall of streams;
    The babbling melody of babies;
    The incessant ringing of insects;
    The colourful plethora of dawn and dusk;
    The tranquil silence of the night.

    The last time
    We enjoyed those moments...
    Is in the distant past...
    Or was never there.

    In the race of life,
    We lost more
    Than we gained.

    The adrenaline will wear off...
    But the lost
    Are the lost
    In the race of life.

    We got freedom from the Britishers but we are again conquered by the religions and caste .
    We proudly say that India is a democratic country but still we fight on the name of religion , we fight as Hindu or Muslim .
    There is no religion or caste in India except one religion and that religion is Indian (Hindustani).
    Until and unless we don't stop fighting on the name of religion we are not fully independent.

    If you are really a true Indian then from today follow only one religion that is Hindustani (Indian).
