I was just 21 when I was fortunate to have joined a thoroughly professional organisation without much struggle. 34 years have passed since then and believe you me the life journey has been ‘happening’ to say the least. The never-ending struggle I see today’s generation going through right from school days makes me feel sad. The new generation always seem to be running against time. … Continue reading Lessons I learnt during my life journey….
A creative hobby is a companion for life. I realised the importance of having a hobby very late in life. In fact, I was nearly 45 years of age when the thought of having a hobby first struck me in real sense. Till then life just revolved around school, homework, exams, office schedules and the likes. Picking up a hobby…. A hobby just cannot be … Continue reading Hobby…. A companion for life….
As I look up every morning I spent in Delhi what I missed most is the blue sky. I have been fond of the colour blue since my childhood. Whatever may be reality but the streams/ rivers and the sky in my drawings have always been flawless blue. Blue also had a prominent place in my wardrobe too. In big cities the city, and the … Continue reading My sky will always be blue….
I had my first fleeting encounter with the beautiful Ms Corona on 10 Mar. Though I had managed to pull myself out just in the nick of time but her body fragrance, the sensation generated by her warm touches just refused to leave me. She was certainly the lady I had spent half my life fantasising about. Eight long months passed since the chanced encounter … Continue reading An affair with Corona …..
The best side effect of Corona, in my view, was that our God came home; the humans got locked inside the homes and the God got unlocked from the places of worships, the temples.
One thing which always irritated me no end was the religious beliefs and the traditions passed down through generations in every family and being followed blindly. I never understood why I should require a mediator (a religious priest) to converse with my God that too in a language alien to me. Why should a priest be required as a translator to convey my prayers/ wishes to God in a language which I do not understand? Why can’t I converse with my God in the language I speak? Why cannot I speak with HIM whenever, wherever I want to, why is a day fixed and an appointment needed? If I am HIS child, then where is the space for someone else between me and HIM? My God should understand the language I speak otherwise HE is not mine.
No other technical gadget has invaded the human life like the smart phones. From communication to entertainment, education, online shopping, work from home, it has become an essential part of our daily lives more so in this difficult time of the COVID pandemic. One feels incomplete with a smart phone in hand. Mobile phones from being a means of communication also has become a major … Continue reading ‘Me time’ or the ‘Mobile time’….debate goes on….
It is said that ‘Life is a journey from what you are to what you want to be’. Wish life were all that simple, which everyone could understand and steered it the way they wanted. Unfortunately, a vast majority falter at the first step; most are not aware of their own capabilities and what they want to achieve in life.
I embarked on my journey of blog writing on 17 Apr 18 on wordpress.com AWESOME , UNIQUE AND BORN TO BE A LEADER and today after a passage of little more than two years I write my 100th blog. In between I had to take a break to take care of my health issues till I came back again and too co- incidentally on 17 Apr 20; nothing planned but it just happened that way.
At the outset I would like to thank my wife for being part of this journey, most of my blogs/ stories are centered around her and she has taken everything I have written ‘sportingly’. I also thank my daughter, Pranjal, my biggest critique and motivator. My gratitude to all my friends who have always taken out time to read my blogs and given their valuable inputs.
