पानी में भी प्यासे

यह है आम आदमी कि व्यथा 
इक कोने में प्यासा 
दूजे कोने में पानी में ही फसा ।। 

दोनों ओर मौत का साया 
कोई सूखे से हारा 
कोई बाढ़ का मारा ।।

Ten Things to do Before I Die

However, the list of things I wish to do is inexhaustible; I will dive into myself to grab the 10 top most things that I would like to do before I die. The list does not follow any particular order.

  • Take my parents and in laws down the memory lane. Visit our birthplace that no longer is our abode.
  • Own a dwelling surrounded by hills, water, books, colors, soft music with my better half once I have finished the worldly responsibilities and duties.
  • Set an example for my kid that life does not mean to follow others. Each one should take a journey without hurting others and at the same time without degrading self. We should make the choices and leave the blaming game.
  • Contribute in my small ways to the lives around me in terms of time, company, monetarily, emotionally.
  • Play adventure sport for that high adrenalin rush when I am on the riper side of sixty!
  • Meet all my friends who have been omnipresent in spite of distances and duration.
  • Play childhood games with cousins when we will be too old to run and jump.
  • Read at least one book every day.
  • Create something on the lines of hall of fame maybe a room where photographs of all my family, cousins from before and after my marriage shall adorn the walls.
  • Keep my sanity and health at par so that when I die I have a smile of contentment on my face

    Written in response to Lets post our Bucket List: Ten Things You Would Want to Do, no let me rephrase, TEN THINGS YOU MUST DO BEFORE YOU DIE or else you would feel like a loser on a deathbed? Let us share and motivate each other about life. Lets Dream about life, your life.

    The Best Gift he ever Received

    Pia was shouting while running across the fields.”Wait! Wait for me. You are running too fast. Mama has sent a message for you. Rakhiii…” The voice trailed behind him.  In spite of hearing his sister scream behind him, Raghu continued gaining yards losing out the sentence. He could not afford to waste any time. He had to grab that kite.

    From Jolly Green to Gloomy Gray
    It was a sunny day still it stood there surrounded by a dismal air. From the corner where she stood, she could decipher that no one dared to be near it. The bench stood there alone in spite of the entire crowd. A decade of service to the community had turned futile post that fateful day. 

    She still remembered that day though bleakly. All the children were playing near the bench some jumping over it, others going under it. A few peers sat on it discussing how it had served them also during their childhood. Among the calm atmosphere, suddenly there was panic all around. Screams and cries for help filled the atmosphere. All the chaos added to the tragedy, as many kids got hurt and two lives were lost. The ones that survived the tragedy developed other complications. Gradually, fear enveloped the neighborhood that once blossomed with laughter and happiness. The happy brown companion transformed to a gloomy gray isolated bench.

     As she stood watching her mate from childhood, she thought if it also felt the pain, as it stayed there abandoned!
