Among the clouds were her dreams,
She was but a kite, dancing by their whims
the more she dared to fly higher,
the more she was pulled down to the bottom.
You dare not fly higher, they shouted
tightening the knots in her every flinch,
but little did they know,
all she wanted was a gasp of breath….
Staring out of the window, unlike his little sister, he was not enjoying the scenic beauty in their long drive. He was lost, quite lost in some world of his own. The constant chattering of his family felt nothing but a little buzz in his ears. Yes, he was completely lost in his thoughts.
Staring out, neither the horn bill, nor the luscious greenery caught his attention. All he could see was himself sitting lonely somewhere in dark and thinking about something. Well, a thought within a thought that sounds exciting, right? But the plain fact was that nothing seemed to excite him. Nah, he wasn’t in some depression. All he was trying to do was to figure out what and who he was. Just like every single one of us, he was trying to find his real self.
He was in his early twenties and was a smart guy. He was not that talkative and kept a little bit to himself, but he wasn’t an introvert. He had his own ways. He thought about his dad who toiled day and night to make their life comfortable. His mom was caring, protective and above all very lovely. His sister was his little angel. The burden of their expectations were heavy on him but he couldn’t deliver the way he wanted to. That did really hurt him.
Was something wrong with him? He never knew. Even when he was in his early twenties and life was moving faster in front of him, he couldn’t find his true passion for anything in particular. He had read numerous stories of successful people who did find their true passion at their young age. He always wondered why he couldn’t find his own?!!
He had spent nights on his bed staring blankly on his ceiling thinking what was his purpose of life, what was that he wanted out of it. What he was and why was he sent to this earth and what his destiny was!! All these thoughts kept nagging him every now and then. Unlike many of us, he didn’t try to run away from them, but faced it boldly hoping someday soon he will certainly unearth it on his own. Today was one such day when thoughts were hitting him hardly. It was then he remembered Dylan Thomas poem he had learned at his school,” Don’t go gently into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Yes, he was not ready to give up. He was ready to fight and unearth his true potential.
Turning with a smile he blended in the happy conversation with his family in ease while assuring himself that he was not ready to give up on himself.
It was then I realized that he was my own reflection….
It has been only 7 months since i have been to this amazing world of blogging. Thanks to my bestie Sanjay for encouraging me to blog every now and then. It was his faith in me that motivated me to start a blog:).
Few minutes back i received a notification stating that i have reached 200+ followers in wordpress!! I was on cloud nine. My joys seemed to be out of limits.
I thank each and everyone of my fellow bloggers who has supported me so far. Without your unbiased supports and encouragement nothing would have been possible.
Am also a great admirer of every blogger. Every blog in here is versatile and every one of them teaches you something new. There is always an air of improvement.
As i was very much busy with my academics lately, i wasnt able to blog frequently. I am so sorry for that. I seek your apology.
Once again deep from my heart i thank each and everyone of you who has been a guide, a companion and a support in my journey so far…and i hope i dont disappoint you guys in the coming days….
A daughter is not a tension,
a daughter is worth ten sons…
It is one of the quote that recently caught my attention. Considering the present scenerio in which the majority in a society see daughters as a burden and not a blessing, and also with ever increasing rate of female foeticides, I felt this quote was worth sharing!..
Spread the word and forge a better and unbiased tomorrow..
Be the change you wish to see in the world
We often see people preaching around saying how to change the world. Most people are only confined to long long preachings and only few speaks through their actions.
Preaching is good, but what that really matters is the action. It is well said that ,“Action speaks louder than words”.
Be the light and lead the thousands who follow you. Be the change to forge a better tomorrow.
#HappyBlogging 🙂 🙂

Believe you can and you are halfway there
Self believe is the key to success. Inorder to be successful in life, the first and the foremost step is to believe in ourselves.
All our hardwork becomes useless and fruitless if we fail to believe in our capabilities. Believe in yourselves, there is a great potential hiding deep within you, uncover them and use it as a beacon to success.
