    Everyone feels their favourite song in different ways. I feel mine the way that can be only be written with eyes closed, hands sut, lips smile, and fingers sway.

    She : How do you feel when I am around you?
    Me: I feel like I am flying and falling into the abyss. It's the most wonderful feeling.

    It's not just pretending,
    It's living the lie
    That makes me wonder who actually am I .

    What is nothing?
    Where is no thing?
    Can I see nothing ?
    Can I speak nothing?
    Can I touch nothing?
    Can I feel nothing?
    If there is nothing then where is it?
    And if there isn't nothing then what is everything?

    I want NOTHING. I want to feel nothing, listen nothing, do nothing, have nothing, be nothing. It's nothing that I want but it is everything.
    Will I be everything if I be nothing?
    But how can I be everything when what I want is nothing and nothing is not everything? Everything is not nothing but nothing is everything.
    Are you nothing? Do you know nothing?
    Can you find nothing?
    They say that even being nothing is being something. But how can nothing be something?
    Is nothing void of everything?
    Even if it is, then it is still something. What you ask?
    It is void of everything.
    What is nothing?

    "In man there are two natures; his spiritual or higher nature and his material or lower nature. In one he approaches God, in the other he lives for the world alone. Signs of both these natures are to be found in men. In his material aspect he expresses untruth, cruelty and injustice; all these are the outcome of his lower nature. The attributes of his Divine nature are shown forth in love, mercy, kindness, truth and justice, one and all being expressions of his higher nature. Every good habit, every noble quality belongs to man’s spiritual nature, whereas all his imperfections and sinful actions are born of his material nature. If a man’s Divine nature dominates his human nature, we have a saint."
    -Abdu'l-Bahá

    "If I love you, I need not continually speak of my love - you will know without any words. On the other hand If I love you not, that also you will know - and you would not believe me , were I to tell you in thousand words, that I loved you." ~ Abdu'l-Bahá

    Silence but words spoken.

    You are the color of my sunrise.
    You are the color of my sunset.

    Staring in the eyes.
    Smiling and tucking her hair behind her ear.

    My heart pounding with nervousness, with love.
    I still feel the same way as I did when I saw you for the first time.

    My heart flying with happiness.
    My soul in love, walked out of my body and wrapped itself around you.
    My mind going crazy; thinking about future .

    "Dai Pani kinnus na" I heard an innocent voice behind me . I turned around and saw a little girl carrying 4 water bottles uncomfortably. She was smiling and asking me if I could buy a water bottle from her. I said , " Okay ! How much does it costs?" She smiled again and said, " For others it's 30 Rupees but I will give you for 25." I think she learnt this business strategy from other people selling verity of goods around basantapur.
    I said,"Ok give me one." I gave her 25 Rupees and asked ," How old are you? You look too young to work. "
    She said, " I am 9 years old and I am working to earn for my education." Suddenly a slightly older boy came and pushed her and asked me to buy his water bottle . I said to him not to push her . He went to the other side and started to ask money from her. I stood up and said ,"Go away otherwise you will get in trouble." He ran away shouting at that little girl. She seemed afraid so I asked her ,"What happened?"
    She said ," He always does this and I am afraid that he will bully me and might take all my money."
    I said ," If he tries to bully you then kick him." She laughed and said," But he is a boy."
    I was ashamed for being a boy for once. She was the victim of patriarchy.
    I sad ," So what ? Nothing will happen. Don't be afraid of him . If you kick him first he will be afraid of you and will not kick you back."
    She smiled again. I could see a sense of protection in her smile. She was able to protect herself but she just realized that.
    I again asked ," Are you really working to earn money for your education ? "
    She said ,"Yes, I study in Nawa Adarsh School and work only on holidays."
    She said ," I will come back ok" and went to sell remaining water bottles. I thought she wouldn't come back. I was sad to see a 9 year old working for her education. I don't know if she is really working for her education or is being forced to work by someone. But what I know is that she deserves better . She deserves to play , she deserves to get free education, she deserves at least two times meal and she deserves a roof over her head. I don't dream for a utopia but at least we could have every children of this country in school and parks, enjoying their childhood and being educated.
    We recently removed beggars from our city but do we know where they went ?
    They surely didn't have roof over their head and they certainly didn't get any jobs. So where are they?
    If the government took them to shelter homes then they can afford to take other older people still working along the roadside.
    We see them everyday and we still ignore them. It's not your fault and it's not the fault of our representatives. It is the fault of our society.
    Like people like leaders.
    Don't expect your leaders to be someone else when your society is constantly teaching all people the same values of life. They will be like the people they represent.


    She came back and informed that she sold all water bottles and earned 100 rupees.
    She seemed happy so I asker her , " Is that enough?"
    She smiled and replied ," Yeah today is the most I have earned in 5 days."
    I remembered those days when I used to argue with my mother that 100 rupees wouldn't be enough for snacks at school.
    The value of 100 rupees is different for different people. For me it's value is way more now that it ever was.
    It was late so I stood up , picked all my belongings. She asked me," Are you going to meet your friends ?"
    I replied ," No I didn't come here to see anybody ."
    Again she replied ," But everybody comes here with someone."
    I guess I was the lonely sole there that day.
    I smiled and replied her ," No I just came here to see things ."
    She smiled and said ," Bye bye . Come back next time ok. I will be at this same place. If not here then I will be by the Kumari house. "
    That day may be I was the only person who had time to talk to her and ask her how she was. Or may be I was like a brother to her who saved her from a bully . Or my be I was a customer who would buy water bottle from her next time also. I don't know what I ment to her but she surely ment a sister , a friend , and an inspiration to me.

    So many difficulties and uncertainties, yet she was there smiling to every stranger.
    Hungry and tired , yet she was there waving good bye to an stranger.
    I think smiling is the strongest way to hide all your sorrow and pain.

    I am trying to convey two different messages so that people can not only feel bad because of this situation but also get motivated.

    The dream of a dreamer is to dream. There are very few people who chase their dream not only in the sleep but also when they are awake. Be one.

    You are enough, you are able, you will do it. Just believe in yourself before you seek others to believe in you and work hard and work smart.

    EVEN in the time when sky is the limit, the WINGS of those who wants to FLY are crushed UNDER THE ROCK called circumstance.

    We live in a world where the phrase DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER is known by everyone but most of us tend to forget it as soon as we see someone. And this amazing quality of us to forget is what made Facebook and Instagram so enjoyable and famous among us. We learnt to compare and judge people before we learnt how to speak.
    This phrase sounds great when we use it to deliver a speech or write a book or try to be a life guru but it is just combination of words for most of us at when it comes to implement in real life.

    Jude the work of people but not the people themselves.
