It’s time to Wake Up and Act-Saga of Siddhartha

It’s time to Wake Up and Act-Saga of Siddhartha

Sparkian Nandini Rao’s take on Siddhartha’s vulnerability. The saga of Siddhartha brings forth and under the limelight, the stark reality our men face. What, apparently seems to be hunky-dory is truly not! The tendency of people to label eminent citizens as successful is the source of this disaster. Successful people, having financial abundance are apparently happy. This is a common belief. IS THAT SO? Why is a responsible guy always under duress to appear ‘responsible’

Thank you for the world so sweet!

Gratitude, I have learnt is a part of our spiritual journey. When I was young, at school, there was a prayer we said at the morning assembly.  I did not know the significance of the prayer, then, but now I do.  The prayer is: Thank you for the world so sweet! Thank you for the food we eat! Thank you for the birds that sing! Thank you God for everything!                                                   Anonymous  I TAKE

WELCOME TO THE JOURNEY OF SUCCESS!

What drives every action of human being is the intention of achieving success in the outcome of that action.  Hence, a question like what success means is absurd.  There is not one single definition of success that could hold good for all. SUCCESS IS IMPORTANT TO EACH AND EVERYONE!  The decisive factor of how successful we perceive ourselves is how we relate to success! From the moment of our birth, success is important to us.  A

MY ANGELIC DEVIL OR MY DEVILISH ANGEL

MY ANGELIC DEVIL OR MY DEVILISH ANGEL

  With a lusty wail, you came into this world That moment onwards, you became my world Your endearing smile, slightly tilted head Those impishly twinkling eyes left everything unsaid You fought circumstances, even in your innocence Your little brain packed in a lot of common sense. Your laughter gave me a lease of life Your love eased all pain and strife With you I enjoyed pleasures of motherhood Much as I endured the pains

Happiness is like a butterfly……..

      Happiness is like a butterfly…….. It flies away from you when you run after it………… It sits on your shoulder when you stop seeking it…….. Happiness for her was to know she belonged to him.  Happiness for her was to run her fingers thru’ his hair. For  her ‘twas a state of bliss without a care. But alas! Life took him away from her; she belonged not to him.   Loving him

HONESTY IN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

HONESTY IN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

  The last couple of years I have been actively engaging myself with meeting strangers, making friends with them and speaking to them.  I speak  about what is the one thing that they really care about and that is most important to them.  The one most important aspect of life that they say is important to them is a unit that they call FAMILY. I get them to share their daily and weekly schedules with

Dooriyaan ya nazdeekiyan?

Mere zindagi mein tumhaara aana Aake usey noorani banana mehz ittefaq nahi Taqdeer ka yeh kaisa mazaak thha Hamaare jazbaat reh gayi ankahee Tumhe na paakar bhi, main ne tumhe apne kareeb paaya Jaise tum jism ho aur mein tumhaari saaya Lafzon se zaahir nahi karte hum dil ki baat Hamaare beech ki khamoshi hi vyakth kare hamare jazbaat Kaanton ki chubhan hume meethi lagey Phoolon ki mehak hume pheeki lagey Hamaare beech ki dooriyan

INCORRUPTIBLE INDIA -A UTOPIAN DREAM?

  The other day, I was seated with a group of people discussing development in India. The moment someone mentioned the word “politician”, everybody else came out with adjectives like liar, selfish, greedy, corrupt, power- hungry so on and so forth. While all of what was said about the politician was valid, it set me wondering, if this is what they really are! Do these adjectives fit all politicians? Wait a minute! Are these adjectives
