Infusion And Creation

A painter infuses life in his paintings,

By using colors and his musings..

An actor infuses different shades of emotions,

When he portrays a character and his notions….

A writer infuses a vast maze of stories,

When he writes from his imagination’s ,empathies’ and experiences’ galleries.

Infusion is an amazing ingredient of creation,

It articulately instills beauty and variation.


Infusion And Creation

Adrift and aloof

A lonesome feather bears the uncertain weather,

When it falls and floats in the air…

A balloon without a holder,

Looks bold and bright when it flies aimlessly in the sky …

A loose sheet of paper looks adrift and aloof,

When it swiftly flies in the air….

A leaf falls from a tree ,

It sways to and fro to find it’s way …

Targets, aims, goals, aims, ambitions, aspirations channelize energies,

But at times, being adrift and aloof for sometime,

Helps to experience uncertainties and improve one’s flexibilities too….


In the big picture of life,

Not all colours are necessarily as per our choice……

( In response to the daily prompt – adrift )


Adrift and aloof

The Descent

When the star twinkles​,

When the moon sparkles,

When the sun dazzles,

When the comet sizzles,

When the planets, stars , satellites follow the system of movements,

Then there will be order in the solar system for those moments.

Some things are not meant to ascend or descend,

Some things are meant to receive  and  send .


The Descent

The precipice of uncertainty.

She was a dutiful, simple person,

She liked life for many reasons…

One fine day, she was thrown out of the house,

She was a victim of domestic abuse…

She was on a precipice,

She was no more at peace.

She had to learn to climb the precipice,

Destiny had thrown a challenging dice.

She was living a life of uncertainty,

But,she had faith in humanity.

She sought help from a women’s support organization,

She was supported without any hesitation.

She received shelter,

She worked as a volunteer.

She had an artistic touch,

She drew designs without expecting much.

She began her journey into a new field,

She had no expectations of any yield.

She began making designs for the organization’s textile division,

Gradually, she dreamed of a vision.

She approached the corporates with her organization’s designs,

She faced rejection of designs,

She didn’t lose hope,

She didn’t feel , she had no scope.

She studied the market ,it’s trends,

She studied the leading brands and legends.

She realized her organization’s designs were ethnic ,

She followed her spiritual ethic.

She did a fusion of the traditional and the modern,

She created new designs , yearning for the yarn …

She approached some corporates again,

She received rejection again.

She posted some design photographs on social media,

She met with a stunning response from the media.

She received many orders from near and far,

She had created a major stir,

Now, the challenge began,

the organization had to get a goodwill and a good gain,

The members began working in full swing,

There was lots of stitching and sewing,

The breaks  had coffee and conversations which were  brewing.

Their products reached many parts of the world,

Their work received a good word.

Word of mouth was their major promotion ,

It set the ball in motion.

She had woven a success loom,

She had forgotten the sorrowful gloom…😃

The Amazing Maze

‘Find your way through the maze’ is available on paper as a puzzle. Many amusement parks also have this game. When we enter the maze, we walk to find the exit point, at times, we meet with a dead end. We feel amazed, without wasting any further time and walk / run to find the path , which would lead us to our destination. We experience a thrill during the journey and searching. We are amazed and delighted , when we reach the destination, aren’t we?

I think that the same rules can be applied in life. If we enjoy the process of problem solving, failing, but do not cease to try, we will reach our destination and goal with more happiness.

Here are some search tips, which can be useful:

1) Do not carry heavy baggage. Do not burden yourself with excessive thoughts, negativity,pessimism, sadness, sorrows etc. Declutter the mind, the home, the office .

2) Carry the essentials. Food, drinks, medicines and first aid kit, if any. – Take care of physical​ and mental well being. Also, be well equipped and learn how to use the equipments.

3) Relax , if feeling tired.

A relaxation and rest will refresh the body and the mind.

4) Observe the maze, it’s materials, it’s manufacturing. Observe the path, it’s materials.- To wear a suitable clothing and footwear. Be prepared to face challenges in life.

5) Learn to make note. Learn to learn from mistakes. Remember the dead ends’ pathway. Avoid repeating the mistakes.

6) If you have company, it is great, enjoy travelling. But, if you are travelling alone, enjoy travelling . We have to live with or without anyone … Enjoy under both the circumstances.

Happy Mazing!

Enjoy the Amazing Maze.

The Surprise Test

I was in Secondary Section of my school. Our Science teacher decided to take a surprise test. Many students panicked. I had very innocently forgotten my Science notebook. I borrowed two sheets of papers from my friend and appeared for the test.

The teacher , then asked the students sitting on the same desk to exchange the books . The students would be checking each other’s test answers. She wrote the answers on the blackboard. Once the assessment was over, the books were returned to the students. She moved around the classroom signing the ‘ Surprise Test Results ‘.

She signed my papers and asked me , why I had written on papers and not in my notebook? I told her that I had forgotten the book.

Another student had also forgotten his notebook. He had panicked and not taken the test. That time, the teacher cited my example to him. She told him, ” That girl also forgot her notebook. Yet , she took the test , by borrowing papers.Taking a test is more important than rest of the reasons. ”

I learnt two important lessons, that day- Trying to solve, making a sincere attempt to solve the problems is highly important with the available resources. Waiting for the right time, the resources, the right opportunity , at times , can be a waste of time. Another lesson- To carry an Extra book ( a Rough Book ) i.e to have a backup is beneficial. 😃 .

None For Her

Ahilya was a family oriented person. She loved her husband and children. She devotedly performed her duties as a wife and mother. Ahilya’s husband was a busy man. He did well in his career. He reached a senior Management position in his forties. The children were also academically brilliant. They were good at arts and sports too. Ahilya was a happy homemaker. She was her children’s friend, philosopher and guide. Her husband  could focus on his career because Ahilya had the efficiency, energy, willingness to largely shoulder domestic responsibilities.

As years passed by, Ahilya’s children completed their studies , sought employment in foreign countries and settled abroad. Ahilya’s husband had retired from his job. Being a workaholic, he set up his independent business consultancy. Ahilya was now no more busy. She had more time to spend for herself. But, she had lost her health , by then…She missed the talks , conversations, chats, family bonding and togetherness. Her children and husband , found it a waste of time to reply  to her phone messages and calls. Her children and husband were too busy to allot any time for her.She felt alone and neglected in her family. Ahilya was emotionally attached to her family members. But they were rational in their approach towards her.

She was sorrowful and sad. One day, she went for a walk in a park.  She walked on the track for sometime​. She sat on a bench and relaxed for sometime.  She saw another lady of her age. She was skilfully handling the smart phone. She was thinking and then entering something. Ahilya approached her and enquired about her. During their conversation, the lady told Ahilya about her role as a magazine columnist, a fiction writer. She shared her journey of a blogger , her debut as a professional writer, her successes and failures. Ahilya thanked the lady for sharing her experiences. Ahilya felt energized.

She spent time in reading and writing. The internet introduced her to a web of information, knowledge and entertainment. She wrote blogs, joined online group reads. She stopped chasing and hovering around her loved ones. They were no longer her only world.

Ahilya joined an NGO . She worked as a volunteer. She taught street children, during three days of the week.

Ahilya began to take care of herself, her choices. She travelled to places , she had wished to visit.

Ahilya was now an independent woman. She never felt , that ‘ there is None for her ‘. Nature and World were there for her , for sure.

Controlling​ Chaos

Controls are critical,

They can be crucial.

Controls are checks,

They organize decks.

Controls set laws,

They reduce unjust flaws.

Controls create order and discipline,

They destroy disorder and indiscipline.

Control reduces chaos,

It can reduce loss.

Controls are pervasive,

They are objective.

Some Controls are stable and rigid,

Some Controls are flexible and fluid.

The Role of Control is systemizing,

The Role of Control is optimizing…
