ये हौसला कैसे झुके

Click here to listen to the song

ये हौसला कैसे झुके 
ये आरज़ू कैसे रुके - 2

मंजिल मुश्किल तो क्या 
धुन्दला साहिल तो क्या 
तनहा ये दिल तो क्या 
हो हो 

राह पे कांटे बिखरे अगर 
उसपे तो फिर भी चलना ही है 
शाम छुपाले सूरज मगर 
रात को इक दिन ढलना ही है 

रुत यें टल जाएगी 
हिम्मत रंग लाएगी 
सुबह फिर आएगी 
हो हो 

ये हौसला कैसे झुके 
ये आरज़ू कैसे रुके - 2

होगी हमें तो रहमत अदा 
धुप कटेगी साए टले
अपनी खुदा से है ये दुआ 
मंजिल लगाले हमको गले 

जुर्रत सो बार रहे 
ऊँचा इकरार रहे 
जिंदा हर प्यार रहे 

हो हो 

ये हौसला कैसे झुके 
ये आरज़ू कैसे रुके - 2

Taking a Stand

Last Saturday I was at my daughter's school at 11:30am guided by the circular that wanted the parents to be there to order school photographs. When I went there it was chaos at its best, fish market!!!

Being urban we have kinda lost the rushing in crowds thing but yes we have braced through it in childhood and when the need arises, I can be at my best :) So I was there fighting my way to the beginning of the crowd, near the table, about to order my photographs and a teacher from the school checks with the photographer guy as to why there is so much commotion and he should stop activities and organize things.

As he was trying to figure how to deal with the mess he created. There was a lady from the parents group, who was outraged, raised her hands calling out loudly to all parents to talk to the Principal and to deal with the situation. She went to the reception and created the required noise. Many parents joined in, including me.

Our demands were:
  • Why is it not organised? The Prinicipal says we dont get involved. We felt they should and not let the photographer create the mess
  • Why should we order class photographs, they can be sent through the student? The Prinicipal agreed to do so
  • For the annual day photographs we suggested put in on a site, we pick up the number and send it on email for order. The Principal was not sure how to take this ahead but they finally decided to have it done class wise rather than Nursery to Twelfth classes parents called at one time.

As all this was being discussed and agreed upon. Some parents went to the photographer's assistant and were busy giving orders till it was stopped by us complaining to the admin guy (who was told by the Principal to correct the situation).

I was really disappointed at the selfishness of these parents who were all fine with the chaotic situation so that they can just get done with it and also taking advantage that most of the parents were there discussing with the Principal, what a selfish attitude.

I am in all praise of the lady who stood as a leader to drive the parents to form a group and take on this issue.

Remember "Take a Stand" if not "Take a stand to support" :)

Its now!

I had been so hurt, that I don't want to let go of the feeling. How could I? I am so a part of my misery that I wouldn't want it to be all by itself and not be identified as "My Pain".

The past thats gone, yeah very recent, but it doesn't exist. I decide I need to drop it. I call and say "I love you". Lets meet and have a good time.

The smile lingers!! The dreams are there...

Anxious about the future! Oh you are going away...? and I will miss the sublime sweetness life has gifted me. I may lose you forever. Holding you tight and close, its the fear of a painful tomorrow. God, close to my ears, whispers: "Aren't you missing the now? and remember I have a beautiful future for you"

The now! Vast, forever, deep, loving and bright....very bright..the now is real. I don't need to live in the past or the future.....

Be quick to express

Today I called hubby and told him "Iam sorry" for the altercations I had with him on silly issues. Well marital life is about that :) I felt so good to express it so :)

And I sent a mail to an old friend who had been kind to me years back when I was in need of help. Its been 4 years but I thought its never to late to express gratitude.

So be quick to express, say "I am sorry" and "Thank you" as soon as you can :)

Breaking Away

Its hard on me to let go
tho its hard to stay here
for this world is yours
the rules please you so

I want to fly so high
away from the shackles
thats set to tame my spirit
but the bird will soar

I am breaking away
my heart needs love
you can keep the world
and the chains you adore
