By relation you are my Grand Father but by heart you are like my child. Your presence , the love in your eyes and the smile on your face has always filled me with light. The way you used to open your heart with warmth for others is a goal for me to learn from same.
There are numerous moments we have enjoyed together that I am wholeheartedly thankful to God. I will always remember the way you lived your life with dignity, hard work and social work. Even after reaching so high in your life you have always kept your feet at ground.
I was very blessed to have spend time with you in your last years and tried my best to ease of the pain you suffered. Only I know how hard it was for me to go far from you after marriage. God has been graceful, that I got to spend 2 weeks with you before you left us.
Although I have accepted this fact but I always cherish and remember the moments which we spent together. I miss:
Wishing Ram Ram to you as the first thing in morning.
Seeing Modi ji speech on television and finishing the breakfast.
Convincing you for your medicines and then promising to lessen the count next time.
Sitting in veranda in summers at night and chit chatting.
Gossiping on the politics and searching the good news together.
Doing the evening aarti together at 7:30 sharp
You advising me to walk and giving all the healthy tips
and I can write numerous others.
There is an emptiness in my heart which is there after you have left. I talk about our stories with others with all smiles because those were the best days of my life. I hope you are at peace and I would like you to know that you are always in my heart and I remember you daily as you are a special gift which God has given me and will always be in my memories.
We have often heard that when life brings you down it is because it wants you to rise high again. Like a Bow and Arrow, the more we push the bow back, arrow will hit the target more accurately. But we often ignore a fact. To be strong in bad times, one watch motivational videos to be boosted with energy. There are people to talk to, there are numerous books, quotes which can help us to pull up. We easily find words to heal ourselves in difficult times and of course, the choice is ours to act. But what about the times when we are actually in a phase where there is neither high nor low tides in our life. It is generally a phase where you have achieved your goal, lived it and are now flowing with it.
Was that all?What motivates us to keep on going in this situation ? Is this the end or a start? Doesn’t life become boring and eventually we lose the motivation because we shot one arrow and we we’re done. And it is this phase that decides our future.
If we are not focused in our life,we will have to face a situation where we would require to pull up our sleeves, gather the strength at highest peak and achieve the target in shortest time. This may or may not give us the best results and that’s sad. The persistence to be focused will also help you to know your strength and will let you run a race where you, yourself are your competitor. And what are you running for? The Race is to be the best version of yourself. And that’s the beauty of life. Don’t stop.Set a goal, achieve it and then start working on other.
So instead of having single arrow, have a handful of them with you. Think what you want to achieve and carve those arrows with your aspirations and keep targeting them to fulfill your goals.
Some people say life is small, live fully. But it actually depends on how much life you fill, in your LIFE . That will decide the magnitude of your living, the liveliness of your soul.Think and start acting.But don’t think much, take the first step and you will eventually find your path to your goal, to your happiness.
मुख पर है जिसके तेज़,
सजी है जिसके लिए यह सेज़|
है जिसके मुकुट पर मोर पंख,
और जो रखते है सदा अपने संग|
एक सुंदर सी मुरली,
पवित्र करती है संसार को जिसकी ध्वनि|
कहते है इनको माखन चोर,
जो चुराते है माखन बिना किये कोई शोर|
है जिसके मोह में बंधी मीरा,
और जो रचाते है गोपियों संग रास लीला|
है जिसके दिल में बसी राधे,
वो है मेरे कृष्ण सावले|
वक्त ज़िन्दगी की लगाम है,
इसके पहिये को सलाम है|
जो वक्त एक बार छूट गया,
समझो वो तुमसे रूठ गया|
वक्त को हमारे साथ नहीं,
हमें वक्त के साथ चलना चाहिए|
जो वक्त एक बार गया गुज़र,
वो वापस नहीं आता नज़र|
इसकी गति बहुत तेज़ है,
यह छिपा एक भेष है|
यह एक ऐसी चिड़िया है,
जिसके उड़ने के लिए आकाश कम है|
यह एक ऐसी दौड़ है,
जिसके साथ चलने की लगी सबको होड़ है|
यह एक ऐसा समा है,
जिसने जिया वही भला|
तो देर किस बात की – आओ प्रण ले,
वक्त के आगोश में शरण ले|
