Hi Friends,

This is indeed a Sunday Surprise post for you as well as me because I was planning to take the complete day off or even a week. But, my next post will be on Monday, January 2, 2023. I am going to share a funny poem and a special Hindi song from the movie Zakhmi.

The lack of co-ordination between the heart and the brain. 
Is the real cause of human pain. 
When brain tells us something to do or abstain, 
Our heart creates confusion in vain. 

Our heart forces us to smile when we meet our adversary. 
Our brain scolds us " Was is this idiotic grin really necessary? " 
Can you just visualize the scene? 
Planning to go out but guests find their way in. 

They are planning to stay for a day or two. 
Their kids turn your house into a zoo. 
Your heart forces to smile but brain wants to skin their hide. 
You keep being polite, swallowing your pride. 

When your beloved spouse, shows his or her singing talent on Singing App with a horrible voice. 
You have to appreciate it, for you have no choice. 
Your brain advises you to give him or her a slap. 
But your heart wins again! Oh, what a crap! 

Whom do you listen to; Your brain or your heart? 
I have thought of combining them both for a start. 
I know that it's an uphill task. 
But better to try co-ordinating them, rather than wearing a mask. 

This is a beautiful song by Late Lata Mangeshkar and Sushma Shreshthta ( Poornima) 

The song translates to :

aao tumhe.n chaa.nd pe le jaaye.n
Come, let’s take you to the Moon, 
pyaar bhare sapne sajaaye.n
and create dreams filled with love.
chhoTaa-saa ba.nglaa banaaye.n
Let’s build a small home,
ek nayii duniyaa basaaye.n
and settle a new world.

pyaar kii hai duniyaa duur aasmaa.n pe
A world of love exists in the far skies.
mil ke na bichhDe koii vahaa.n pe
No is separated after being united there.
aisii bhii ek Dagar hai, aisaa bhii ek nagar hai
There is a path to such a place.

gham jahaa.n soye aur khushi jaage
Sorrow sleeps there, while joy awakens.
aas kii hai manzil taaro.n se aage
It is a destination of hope beyond the stars.
vahaa.n dil rote nahii.n hai.n, aan.nsuu to hote nahii.n hai.n
Hearts do not cry there, for tears do not even exist.

aao tumhe.n chaa.nd pe le jaaye.n
Come, let’s take you to the Moon.

Happy holidays, friends. Meet you on January 2, 2023.
