Surrender Your Soul !!

Surrender Your Soul !!

 

The Soul !

The Soul !

Today I don’t want to fight

Today I want to heal !

Today I don’t want a war

Today I want some peace !

Today I don’t want to annex

Today I want to let go ‘n’ release!

Today I don’t wish to march

Today I wish to kneel…

With my hands folded,

With my eyes closed,

With my head bowed,

With my mind still,

To Thy Grace! Thy Divinity

And Thy power, Thy touch, Thy illuminance,

Within, I want to feel !!

Amen !

If Not Now…Then When Shall We !!

If Not Now…Then When Shall We !!

 

Entire sovereign is favouring inaction, indeed party to crime

Everywhere, there is bloodshed, corrupted every mind

There is an impenitent dance of selfishness ‘n’ indifference

Marginalized is the common man, slighted is womankind

 

If we don’t fight for our rights now, then when shall we!

 

Powerful afflicting the weak, making them weaker

Wealthy becoming wealthier, one third still below poverty line

Enslaved, living a life of untouchables and maligned

Screaming for justice, do we heed them whine

 

If we won’t hear them cry, then when shall we!

 

Every religion ‘n’ caste is brewing hatred ‘n’ crime,

Common man so timid and scared, turns an eye blind

Few raise voice are singled out, pay price of being kind

Deprived of justice, subjected to more barbaric crime

 

If we still don’t raise our voice, then when shall we!

 

Media makes a news churning machine, chases TRP rates

The more sensational it is, more it sells in the race

People suffer from social amnesia; issues are dozen a dime,

Fast paced life, refuses to pause, fatigued by daily grind

 

If we don’t move now, then when shall we!

 

Honour for women, pride for daughters, is what we’ve been vying

Youth immersing in drug menace, hope of India’s dying,

Children of today, are future of tomorrow, is a forgotten rhyme

Caste still leads, power still rules, superstitions still haze our minds

 

If we don’t woke up still, then when shall we!

 

Where are those, whose senses are alive ‘n’ blood is still warm

Those brave hearts, who’re willing to fight ‘n’ await a new dawn

Who claim to be nimble n awake, need to create a storm

Those erudite, who dream and strive for a reform

 

If it’s not time to wage a revolution, then when shall we!

 

 

Under The Shadow Of Giant Trees…

Evergreen Trees

Under The Shadow Of Giant Trees…

 

Blessed are those special ones, whom God bestows with His might

They are indeed those bright minds, who earn this gift for the right

They have certainly risen more than other poor mortals in plight

 

Now that you are the chosen one, have bigger challenge to fight

There are those who bow their head in reverence, contain the power inside

Spread their aura; kindle the radiance, to the humble and slight

 

There are some who can’t hold the power, get blinded by their might

Can’t see those new tiny stars around, who are struggling for their lime light

Narcissists captivated in self-gratification, nonchalant to selfless side

 

Giant and towering trees let only nestling climbers touch height

Indifferent, syphoning wherewithal, causing erosion, basking in avaricious pride

Eclipsed in their amoral shadow, many true n worthy saplings died!

You are part of me…

007

They may see in you an ordinary boy

But I know you’re quite unusual

Not a regular next door guy,

A discreet and super individual

 

Once if you meet someone,

You win him for life

You touch his heart and soul,

With your candor n smile

 

Your world is totally different

With meaningful little things..

Where reality gets blurred

And dreams get their wings

 

Where fish can actually fly,

Birds can also swim

Where humans turn in robots

Zombies killed by imps

 

Your reasoning is so special

Your ingenious has no parallel

Ordinary things just bore you

In puzzles and riddles, you excel

 

I want to see the world from your eyes

For, it’s limitless beyond the skies

With a mind always on flight

You could touch the stars so high

 

I know you’re going to be exceptional

It wonders me what’s your whim

I have seen your young mind question,

Look for answers of world so distinct

 

You’re part of me,

So I live you everyday

My heart beats for you

For your triumph, I always prey!!

 

 

My Vision, Mission Statement and Goals of Life!!

One of those days, when I pause and introspect

One of those moments, I take stock of life’s true aspects

How much love and happiness I have accrued, how much in return I ‘ve spread

There’re dreams that I fulfilled while some just faded and withered

How much I have achieved and how much more is left

The essence of life so far journeyed, the search of soul that lies ahead

 

One of those days, when I feel special and blessed

I am grateful to God and all of you who incite this smile

Filled with sense of pride for the goals I have met

When I sit here today to reminisce and reflect!

………………………………….

If feels great this moment, there is  peace, quietude, sense of achievement…but can this be a permanent state of mind!

I have been mulling over this until I stepped out of an exhaustive two days’ workshop conducted on the understanding and imbibing of our organization’s Vision, Mission and goals. We almost pledged with hand on our heart to live by each and every word of it.

Later, I was complementing at the amount of seriousness and focus our organization attributes to its values and the sense of pride we take to live by them.

What about us as individuals. How earnestly do we take our lives?

 If it is the most important and valuable project to us, have we set a clear vision, mission and goal for ourselves. Isn’t it imperative to replicate this wisdom to our lives at large….

So I started working on this new premise and I conceived my strategy around life more formally, using the same format that we do while making organization’s strategy…..

 

My vision-

To transform my life’s journey from ‘Living’ to ‘Winning’!

My Mission-

I will enhance my self-worth, stature and contribution towards all the important stakeholders of my life by refining myself personally, professionally and spiritually in order to create a mutually Win-Win endeavor for all.

 Important Stakeholders-

 

Myself- My mind, body and soul- (Self-actualization, health and internal bliss)

Family & Friends- My spouse, children, close family and friends.

Career- My goals towards my occupation, organization, leaders, team members

Society- A section of society which needs support and abetting

My goals…

I had taken following set of goals to be evaluated and reviewed after every year.

  1. Myself- To feel blessed, fulfilled, physically fit and one with my soul-
    1. To learn and practice new realms.
    2. To publish my poetry.
    3. To be regular on physical fitness regime. Right eating.
    4. Spiritual connect for quietness and internal bliss.
  1. To be an adored and respected mother, spouse and kin to those in the family who have contributed in my journey.
  2. To be an admired and respected professional for quality of work and value I bring by my contribution.
  3. To engage and support my best to a cause towards society.

Being a corporate employee for a while now, I knew you can’t sustain for long by just making powerful statements. It was important therefore to develop a methodology to measure my success on same. To assess that I am making progress on my vision and mission of life.

After a lot of serious deliberation and some consultation with people in family and colleagues I trust,

I concluded as follows.…

The technique to measure if I have met my first personal goals is- When I look at the woman in the mirror, I see an image I revere, respect and adore. I see a person who has lived a life giving her best , have no regrets and yet so much desire to learn and contribute more.

When it comes to goals with respect to my family/friends, my stakeholders are the customers who should rate my performance. If they confirm that my presence and contribution has made a positive difference to their lives and achievement of their important goals…I am home.

Career goals are easy to measure- Top box performance rating and results in each role.

My goal towards society is under planning and deliberation. I have an outline and imagery in my mind, however I have to assign and commence in a specific timeline.

…………………….

Before you start judging me for my strategy and goals or may find this entire exercise a little dramatic….My simple message to all is- it has really helped me crystallize and affirm important objectives of my life with an immense clarity ( However ingenuous they may sound). All this while, these thoughts were there in my mind but obscure and hazy. Having deciphered and documented them is like making a commitment to myself that I stand avowed to fulfil.
