Waiting For The Muse

Hello friends! Has it ever occurred that you love to create and that creativity just doesn't come to you? OR you have a favourite band/ musician and you are waiting for them to release a song and you wait and wait? But isn't it also true that the adventure is in the wait and the chase? Life's destinations are the same, its the journey that is the challenge. Well here is a poem on the Muse! Enjoy!

Waiting for the Music

Is it that the flowers speak to the bees?

Or the leaves whisper to the trees?

And the shimmering dark ponds, gaze at Venus at night?

And when shall the moon shine out that light?

As we wait for the whistling winds to blow,

In the distance the fireflies glow,

When will we hear the music sweet, we ponder and wonder, we look, we seek?

When shall the muse strum her songs?

 We have been waiting  just far too long!

And thus we gaze and thus we wait,

On her door steps and near the gates,

When shall she open her bolted doors?

And send her mellifluous music across the shores?

A Happy Life Song

Hi friends! We all want to be happy and healthy  in order that we are able to withstand the adversities in life. And thus so, lets’ laugh a little. When I was growing up I watched a movie called Mary Poppins in which a gentlemen loves to laugh,starts floating in air and makes every other person who visit him also laugh and float, and  feeling sad he comes down to earth. ‘I love to laugh ha ha ha’ goes  the song. Its just great to be a little silly in life. Laugh at really impossible situations & problems you will see the brighter side. Of course it doesn’t mean that if someone falls down or gets killed in a terrorist attack you laugh like a maniac! But smile at difficulties, and maybe a solution will come to you. Laughing by itself crates the necessary hormones equal to an intensive work out and instantly makes you feel invigorated. Not only do you feel elated but you spread happiness all around. So if the heart is happy then so shall the rest of the body be, all beating fast like the drums in a metal band. Why is it that when we hear a fast beat our mood lifts? And thus so you shall too be able to lift yourself to the beat of your heart and sing a song of happiness to everyone.

Sing a song of happiness,

Sing a song of love,

Sing when you cry or feel sad,

And at times when everything is getting on your nerves,

Sing when you feel the joy,

Sing as life goes by,

Sing cause you want to be merry,

Sing and things will not be too scary,

Sing and you shall have no worry,

Sing and you will see life clearly,

Sing a happy life song.

Want Not Worry Not

Hello friends and readers, here is a rebound moment for your Jedi. A small thought to ponder on.Has it ever happened to you when you are in the pits of your emotions and then just start feeling happy and enthusiastic? What is it, what happened? Was it a change in the mind or was it return to sanity? And that is what it all is about.

I came to understand that happiness lies in the heart. And once the heart is happy health will follow. The harder you fall the higher you rebound and meet success and peace.

We all get stretched to the limit like an elastic band and some of us do snap. But if you do feel that you are being stretched to your limits and cannot do it anymore, always remember that you are not alone. Search and you shall find in each heart lies sorrow because we want too much.

How about for a change, letting go certain wants and getting out of comfort zones? Do try and you will meet new experiences which will make you grow. Let It Go. Let it Go. Let it Go...
Want Not Worry Not!
Think Not and Wish Not
And you shall clearly see
That it is the empty shell in which you hear the Sea!
And things are not as hard as you feel,
So let happiness flow........

Return of the Jedi!!

Hello is there anybody out there? ( Pink Floyd- please correct me friends). Those who are still reading. It has been an very hectic and complicated year for me. Sitting atop 8000ft alt. Where connectivity depends on the amount of clouds and rain causing havoc. I have been out of it. BUT I am back and life is beautiful!! Being dependent on nature I realize how small and insignificant we all are in this world, and that life is an experience which you must cherish at each second. Just watch a butterfly flit and  in seconds you will see beauty in all its simplicity.

Hope you all are well. Hope to be interacting with you ( if any still n )

bye and may the 'Force' be with you!

Connect - Disconnect

My dear friends, my readers, has it ever happened that in the usual humdrum of life you suddenly just disconnect and see yourself in a vacuum, as if from outside in? In that moment, you just get a perspective on your own life and situation at times. In these last three months, I too took an outside in view of my life and priorities. I disconnected from the internet to connect back to it in a refocused manner. This can happen when one faces an event which moves them. Well, for me it was the loss of my grandmother whom I really loved. I was not able to meet her due to certain factors for many years, and when I did meet her with my whole family, she was really happy and said that ‘I am so glad you came with your husband and child’. She was admitted to the hospital a week after I left and passed away silently in her sleep. In her last few hours, she spent in singing all the songs she knew from nursery rhymes to patriotic songs, before she fell asleep, she took my sons name and said repeatedly how overjoyed she was that she had met him, and closed her eyes to this world.

The poem below is not about my grandmother, it is about introspection and prioritizing.

Connect -Disconnect
Power on-


In silence,

All work done,

I wait in the stillness, with fast music behind,

dogs barking,

and the child giggling away near the TV,

and the fan above swishing ,the lap top humming,

Some thing to inspire me?  Memories?

Cursor ask questions flashing  I  I  I  I   I  I   

I am ready,

Sitting, looking at my own paintings on the walls, with mistakes which only I can see,

The sofa and the silk cushions,

The flowers still fresh in their crystal vases,

The pretty red carpet and the bamboo lampshade hangs on, sitting in one part of the room like me,

I complete the picture, a decorative peace which fits in all around the house,

I am ready,

Who’s bell is that? No, not mine.

Who’s car is that? No, not for me.

My phone on my side with 150 contact numbers,300 facebook ‘ likes’

But no one to talk to or to listen!

‘This phone number does not exist'

The caller is busy , please stay on line’

 ‘All lines are busy at the moment, please call later’

‘Server down’

Oh well, that’s enough conversation for today!

I am ready.

Ready in silence. I  I  I  I   I  I   






Blank  Screen.





 I hope you liked the poem, do let me know.

One & Same

My dear friends, my readers. How have you been? A whole year has gone and a new one has started. Well, life goes on, people come into this world, and some leave, oh, so suddenly. The year ends with  celebration and also starts with it. There have been many who have had success and many innocents who have lost lives, and continue to do so. Why this conflict, why such pain we cause for each other? Does not our heart beat the same, the breath we take is the same, our mind is composed of the same emotions? We ALL feel happy ,sad, and frightened. We ALL lose hope, gain faith and conviction? We are in this together and together we must encourage change for the better. We need to think what a world are we leaving for our children?

Thus , today I post a poem, pondering about our existence and how we may be doing different things and live in different parts of the world, but we are ALL fundamentally the same. Many have done research, written books and poetry to ultimately come to the conclusion that we all are the same!

So, as I brew myself lotsa lovely coffee, and have some serious thoughts.Do enjoy this poem of mine.

One & Same

Ten fingers and ten toes,

Two eyes ,two ears,

And one nose.

In all the poetry and in all the prose,

Who are we?

No one knows?
No one Know!

Over oceans,

Over mountains,

Inside earth,

And outer space,

Whose are these hands?

These animals?

These clothes?

These wings?

Who is this face?

Our own story we try to trace,

Did we come form monkeys, earth or out of space?

Dig this place, dig that place!
Talk and talk, debate, debate!

Who are we?

Who were we?

Use psychology,




Economics and


Who are we? Who are we?

A thousands of years of existence ,

And still we ask ,who are we?

Isn’t it very plain to see?

Two arms,

Two feet,

One heart that beats,

One brain,

And thirty two white teeth!

All same,

All same!

For Heavens sake!

And in your Gods name!

We are all , all same!

In all wars,

In all chains,

In all busses,

In all trains,

We are one,

We are same,

Let us throw away, our selfish claims!
Raise hands,

And proudly proclaim, to me, you and He( or she)

We are ONE,

We are the SAME.

All Things Bright and Beautiful!

Hello dear friends, it’s the season to be jolly and thankful, with Thanks Giving , Christmas and the New Years. A final culmination of the whole year’s festivities. We should really be thankful for the food we eat, thankful for the world so sweet and thankful to God for everything. And so aptly starts, from Dec 1-Dec 12 in Lima, Peru, a conference on Climate Change UNFCCC. Climate change is the flavor of next year 2015 !  See:
It is all about our world and the environment, so important for the survival of the human race , we have to make a conscious effort for a change. We have to leave a beautiful world for our children, so the time is now. So, what started as a small story to tell my child about conservation and environment, without the computer graphics, I actually started constructing a story and then there was no stopping me.
I wrote a play on conservation, the environment and of course nature, and women as the conservers of nature personified in the heroine, I call Ariyana (not Ariana Grande, name is taken from the settlers which came to India and lived in the forest-the Aryans). I have uploaded on Amazon in the form of an e-book called: Ariyana- The Secrets in the Forest. It is available for a free download as well as my other e-books from  28 to 30 Dec 2014 at:
Gender Day at the conference is on Dec 9  See: unfccc
You can also see my page MyRandom Bks for more about the story, Cast of Characters , a pictorial representation of the Heroine Ariyana and a Map of territories, on this blog.
 It is a play for  the youth to act and put up to spread the word of conservation through drama hopefully in an open air, live theatre, which will attract the younger children  towards Nature, Conservation and Recycling, and all the problems without heavy philosophy, and boring monologues. I feel it is no use telling adults, we have to show the children in their own world and without computer graphics.
So friends do have a read, download and review. DO let me know what you think, I am open for all criticism -good and bad!
So Happy Holidays and Best Wishes to you & your families!
Here is a lovely hymn by Cecil Alexander: All Things Bright and Beautiful
The hymn was first published in 1848 in Mrs. Cecil Alexander's Hymns for Little Children. It consists of a series of stanzas that elaborate upon verses of the Apostles' Creed ( Wikipedia)
There is a beautiful version with music do have a look:
Alexander's text reads:
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

All things bright ...

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them high and lowly,
And ordered their estate.

All things bright ...

The purple headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;−

All things bright ...

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,−
He made them every one:

All things bright ...

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
We gather every day;−

All things bright ...

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

All things bright ...

‘Due to the third verse's endorsement of the class system, many later versions and performances of the hymn omit it. The United Church of Canada includes a fourth verse, which seems particularly appropriate to Canadian geography: "The rocky mountain splendour, / the lone wolf's haunting call, / the great lakes and the prairies, / the forest in the fall.’ (Wikipedia)
