WORLD AIDS AWARENESS DAY : A POEM BY ME.

Social stigma attached to HIV / AIDS. 

The most malignant disease prevalent in the Human Society, 
Is not cancer, or AIDS but cheap human mentality. 
A person infected with HIV ( AIDS) deserves to be treated with love, respect, and care. 
Because life for him or her, has been really unfair. 


AIDS is just a disease, there's no need to shun. 
Or make the patient's life miserable by denying him the rights to have fun. 
A patient of AIDS isn't an untouchable. 
Anyone could be its next victim, it's probable. 

Why is there a social stigma attached to AIDS? 
What about those shameless people who face Income Tax raids? 
Why aren't people ashamed of taking or offering bribes? 
Or the politicians discriminating  the citizens on the basis of religions, castes and tribes? 

Why is an HIV patient considered an outcast? 
How long will this tyrannical attitude and ignorance last? 
We aren't ashamed of telling lies or boast. 
But why do we despise the victims of AIDS the most? 

No one in this world is disease free. 
Some have physical ailments while some are afflicted mentally. 
We are constantly living under the threat of some or other kind of virus. 
The world is meant for everyone and not just us. 

Avoid corrupt people like plague. 
They are not to be believed. Their statements are a bunch of lies and vague. 
Jealousy is the worst form of human acidity. 
Allowing it to thrive is an act of stupidity. 


Anger and hatred are like cancers, they spread everywhere and damage humanity. 
Wipe them out before they develop into insanity. 
Our vices are our real enemies and a major cause of concern. 
Let's show kindness and compassion to the patients of AIDS and in the process learn. 

That love and friendship have no bar. 
Discrimination is too far. 
To prove we care for each other. 
We are the children of the same mother          
 (Earth).

SUNDAY SURPRISE (71)

मन की सफाई (CLEANING OUR MINDS). A POEM BY ME IN HINDI AND ENGLISH

Photo by Elina Fairytale on Pexels.com

तन की सफाई का हम रखते हैं ध्यान |
साबुन से तो हर रोज कर लेते हैं स्नान |
पर मन के मैल को कैसे धोए ?
क्यों कहते हैं ऐसे शब्द जिसे सुनकर सामने वाला रोए ?

चेहरे पर चेहरा है, किस पर करें विश्वास ?
अपनों से ही उम्मीद नहीं तो गैरों से कैसे करें आस ?
सामने मीठे बोल बोलकर पीठ पीछे करें वार |
दो मुंहे इंसान घूम रहे हैं ढूंढने अपना अगला शिकार |

कब तक हम एक दूसरे से नफरत और ईर्ष्या करेंगे?
बातों और हथियारों से आखिर हम कब तक मरेंगे?
दौलत की मोह में अंधा हो चुका है इंसान,
अहंकार की वजह से खुद को समझ रहा है भगवान |

पैसों से सब कुछ खरीद सकते हैं सिवाय किसी की जान | फिर भी ना जाने क्यों इंसान करता है पैसों पर अभिमान?
भूलकर सारे शिकवे गिले, क्यों ना करें हम एक दूसरे को माफ?
दूर रहकर कुविचारों से, कर सकते हैं हम अपने मन को साफ |

इंसान की सच्ची दौलत होती है, इंसानियत, ज्ञान, और प्यार |
जिस के मुख्य स्त्रोत हैं दोस्त और परिवार
इंसानियत से बढ़कर कोई धर्म नहीं, फिर क्यों है यह मतभेद?
सब ग्रंथों का करें सम्मान, चाहे हो गीता, कुरान, बाइबल, या वेद|

The translation in English :

We take care of the cleanliness of the body.

We take bath everyday with soap.

But how to wash away the dirt of the mind?

Why do we say such words which make the other person cry?

Some people have two faces, whom to trust?


We can’t expect anything from our own family, let alone the strangers.


People might talk sweetly on your face but may stab you in the back.


Two-faced humans are lurking around, in search of their next prey.

How long will we continue to hate and be jealous of each other?

How long will the hurtful words and weapons continue to kill us?

A human is blinded by the brazen show of wealth.

His vanity makes him think that he is God.

We can buy anything with money except for someone’s life.

In spite of knowing this truth, why does a man seek pride in possessing money?

Why don’t we let go of our misgivings and forgive each other?

We can keep our minds clean by getting rid of evil thoughts.

Humanity, knowledge, and love are our real assets.

We get these from our friends and family.

There is no religion greater than humanity, then why is there discrimination?

We should respect all the religions and religious scriptures, Gita, Quran, The Bible , or the Vedas.

I presented these in a video which ‘I would like to share with you.

RISE AND SHINE : AN INSPIRATIONAL POEM BY ME.

Photo by Ricardo Esquivel on Pexels.com
I am afraid I have run short of words. 
To express how I feel. 
I am like a caged bird, 
Wanting to fly, but experiencing Achilles Heel. 

I keep on telling my silly heart. 
You can't please everyone. 
Don't be naive and try to be smart. 
For you are inferior to none. 

Yet, somehow I go back to being slack. 
And the fire within me fizzles out. 
How can I think of going back? 
And allow myself to be overtaken by self-doubt? 
 
It's not the time to rest or immerse in self-pity. 
It's time to rise like a Phoenix. 
And now I am back again to do my duty. 
And won't let my pathetic mind play funny tricks. 

There are many obstacles in this journey called life. 
Each one is meant to make you strong. 
It's smooth sailing for some people, while it's full of strife. 
But it sure wouldn't last for long. 


Fear of failure is the greatest impediment to success.
Don't be afraid to fail. 
Don't grant negativity and pessimism any access. 
To your mind but continue to sail. 

The winds of fortune will definitely blow our way. 
We must not lose sight of our goals and aims. 
We will be successful one day. 
Despite our detractors playing unfair games. 

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs.

To be happy or to grieve. 
To complain or to smile. 
To keep working or relax for a while.

To be foolish or wiser. 
To keep arguing or pretend to lose. 
Think twice before you choose.

Life has its way of scripting a story.

To hanker after money and power at the cost of your dignity. 

To stay within the comfort zone or prepared to take a risk. 
To be a couch potato or be active and brisk. 
To refuse to part with redundant ideas or be flexible with changing times. 
To earn money honestly or resort to the world of crimes. 

To be grumpy or jovial. 
To embrace acceptance or prefer denial. 
It's your life and your choice. 
To live in peace and harmony or make a noise. 

No matter what you may do. 
Listen to your conscience, as it will never mislead you. 
After all, it's just a matter of choice. 
Use your common sense than just depending on the words of advice.

MY TRAIN JOURNEY: A POEM BY ME

Me enjoying the scenery outside.
Started on a journey with family, waiting for the train. 
Sipping a cup of hot coffee, reminiscing my childhood days again. 
My train pulled into the station and I clambered to get a window seat. 
My daughter, too, pines for the seat by the window. Isn't that really sweet? 

Yippee! Both of us got to sit comfortably by the window and watched the station receding. 
And our joy knew no bounds, when the train started speeding. 

Watched the cows grazing on the green fields, 
The farmers sweating it out to produce great yields. 
Little children waved at us with their friendly smiles. 
Observed the passing buildings and appreciated their architectural styles. 


Lush green trees and surrounding hills, 
Do make some memorable stills. 
I sighed when I noticed a beautiful lake. 
The clear blue sky with fluffy white clouds was the icing on the cake. 
The tea vendors shouting to sell their tea. 
We watched people boarding and de-boarding for an eternity. 

I remember traveling with my family by train. 
What would I not give to go back to those days again! 
Our dad would spoil us with snacks and comics. 
And make us laugh with his jokes and silly tricks. 
Yet, he died while traveling by train. 
Leaving us in the sea of gloom and pain. 


I miss hearing his silly translation and laughter. 
But I am still and would always be his daughter. 
It may still hurt but I will never give up on my love for train. 
I will keep traveling the rest of my life, again and again. 

I decided to capture a small glimpse of the scenery while the train was still moving. 




Moments of nature captured on train.

I hope you liked it.

MY HEART : AN INSPIRATIONAL POEM BY Me.

Photo by Brett Sayles on Pexels.com
My heart is a one-way lane. 
Some people entered only to give me pain. 
Some people taught me how to live. 
Don't forget the betrayal but learn to forgive. 

Some people wanted to see me fail. 
Their words of discouragement were to no avail. 
I learned to keep working from an ant.
And try to avoid believing that you can't. 

My heart is like a luxurious inn. 
To provide happiness to all the guests residing within. 
It has air conditioning of love and a heater of joy. 
To make all the guests comfortable, a girl or a boy. 


My heart is like a big house, open to all. 
You are welcome to reside as long as you can;  it's your call. 
There's no rent to live in my heart. 
Let's be kind and appreciative of each other for a start. 


My heart is like an exotic beach with the sea of affection and dunes of loyalty for the sand. 
I don't have many conditions or demands. 
Except for a kind request , 
Control your temper for it's a troublesome pest. 


It's better to be silent than speak hurtful words. 
Let the positive thoughts fly from the prison of your mind like free birds.
I welcome you all to this journey of life. 
Where we are living precariously on the edge of a knife. 


My heart is like a bridge to help you reach the land of positivity from the ocean of despair. 
It's strong and sturdy, made of love and care. 
And I would keep praying until my last breath. 
Dear God! May we live in peace and Harmony until our death.

It's like watching the Game of Thrones and battling for the crowns. 
Yes, I am madly in love with the thought of exploring the world. 
Yes, I am madly in love with the idea of sharing the secrets that are unfurled. 
This is the kind of the romance I prefer. 
And not canoodling with a lover boy, never. 

And now I would like to share the acts of kindness by animals.
