My Past Life

Frankly speaking I have no intuitions regarding my past life. So, Either this is just the beginning of my cycle or else I am carrying no baggage from my past.

Past life;
Was it a slow or fast Life?
I am ignorant of the unseen
The way I lived
Or how I died?
 
I wish I were a nomad
Free of spirit.
Unwound from the world around
deep in love to be calm and sound.
 
I wish I had a pleasant stay
Starry nights
Warm and bright days.
 
Maybe, I had traveled
Above the highest mountains
Under the deepest seas.
Maybe, I had taken a chance
To sing with the waves
To dance with the breeze.
Maybe love had blossomed
I went happy to sleep.
 
I do not even remember
If I were an animal
Or belonged to human beings.

I do not know about my past life
No traces I can see.
If I had left mid way
Or had my soul found its peace.

Educated illiterates or Uneducated literates?

This is something very close to my heart. Very often I am left thinking about this topic when I come across people of good homes and best degrees succumbing to low standards. We all have an opinion about things however; flexibility to new ideas and situation is the key to a better world. This also happens to be the distinguishing factor between the literates and the educated.

Education for me is a never-ending process that helps me grow spiritually and mentally whereas literacy is mere talk about degree. Literates talk about things directly from the books even if it is irrelevant in today’s context whereas an educated person does not have same rule for all. Each situation and a person is a new challenge with a different approach.

A well-bred person may be good with words and the world but may turn out a total illiterate when it comes to dealings. How else can we explain dowry cases, marital rapes, and kidnapping amongst the college educated families too?

Education is the need of the hour, as it will automatically remove the ills of the society as it works at grass root level. Unlike literacy that needs formal training, it needs compassion not only towards the texts but also towards life in general. It is better to be educated illiterates than uneducated literates are.

It is an important aspect of today essential for a better tomorrow.
