Happy RakshaBandhan 2013 (Eng Version)



We might be far away
But this bond is here to stay;

We may not talk everyday
Nor share our Lives in a nitty gritty way;

Still this bond has a shining Ray
For the Souls are connected by Fate, one can say;

This bond is not an Obligation
Nor a forceful promise of a Sister's Protection;

This bond is a Symbol, a mark of Respect
A Sister's way of showing Love and Admiration

So please accept this token of Affection
Embellished with Prayers to God for
My Brother's Long Life, Success & Gratification

Happy RakshaBandhan !!! @SweetAngelRree

Rakhi Poem 2013 (Hindi)



Chahe ho Hum kitni bhi Duur ; 
Yeh Rishta hai Sada ke liye,

Bhale hi hum baatein na karein hazaar ; 
Har pal ki khabar ke liye,

Phir bhi iss Rishtey ki Dor hai kuch Khaas ; 
Ye Kismat se hai Umar bhar ke liye,

Isse Raksha ke Vachan ka Bandhan na samjhe ; 
Ye Rishta hai sirf Pyar ke liye,

Isse Nibhana hai Dil se ;
Iss Dor ke Maan ke liye,

Meri iss Rakhi ko Sweekariye ;
Ismein Ishwar se Shauhrat, Sehat aur Shanti ki Prarthna judi hai ;
Ek Behen ke apne Bhai ke liye....@SweetangelRree

HAPPY RAKSHABANDHAN !!!

My Poem:Friends or Fiends???


True FRIENDS are meant to be for life
Fake ones will leave you in your lowly tide,

True FRIEND will cheer you when u down
Fake one will feel glad to be on a better ground,

True FRIENDS will always be there in your pain
Fake ones will disappear to enjoy the rain,

True FRIEND will always wish the best for you
Fake ones feel jealous when the best happens to you,

True FRIEND will always be faithful to you
Fake one will pull a dagger and pierce in you,

The Fake ones have pierced a dagger in my soul
Now I believe True FRIENDS don’t exist at all !!! @ Rree

Quote 4 - To Serve...



“Look upon every man, woman, and every one as God. 
You cannot HELP anyone, you can only SERVE: 
Serve the children of the Lord, serve the Lord Himself, if you have the privilege.
If the Lord grants that you can help any one of his children, blessed you are; do not think too much of yourselves. 
Blessed you are that that privilege was given to you when others had it not. Do it only as worship.” @ Swami Vivekananda

Such a simple change of word from HELP to SERVE altered my perception towards relationships.
Lowered my expectations from people of all walks of life around me.

Quote 3 - Beauty in the World !!!


" It's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. 
Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once and it's too much. 
My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst, 
and then I remember to relax and stop trying to hold on to it and it flows through me like rain 
and I can feel nothing but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid, little life. 
You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure, but don't worry. You will someday." @ Lester Burnham from American Beauty

My Poem:Happy First Marriage Anniversary !!!


                                      

One Year completion of a roller coaster ride,
Filled with loads of Bliss,
And some little Fights.
These fights made our bond more Strong,
And showed where each of us were Wrong.
...But the Will to Rectify that wrong,
Just made us better Individuals for Life long.

This love has never been so Bright,
My life with you just feels so Right.

God made my wish come so True,
When he granted it in the form of You.

Sometimes I feel I am living a Dream,
As you pamper me like a baby Queen.

Today once again we start this roller coaster Ride,
With a vow to be Together,
No matter what the Tide,
Love each other,
And never have a false Pride.....

WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY FIRST ANNIVERSARY

My Poem:Rest In Peace Nannaji



Your Soul has flown away,
To a place Unknown.
I believe that place has no Pain, no Sadness or Hatred,
Only language of Love and Peace are known.

What you left behind are some beautiful memories
For us to cherish.
Day and Night we will think of you and feel
As you still exist.

May you lay in the hands of GOD
Who shall take good care of YOU
And we continue to look upon YOU for Blessings
Even though we are so so so so far away from You.

Love you....May you rest in peace....@18th Jan 2011

My Poem:Happy Valentines Day ....



You came into my Life,
Like a breeze of fresh air….
You spread your Warmth,
And took me out of despair….
Your Love so True,
And it cannot be compared….
Your Love so Pure,
And your Heart is so rare….

As Deep as the Ocean,
Your love is so Immense for me….
As Tall as a Mountain,
Your love stands Strong for me….
Like the Flame of a Candle,
It keeps Burning to give warmth to me….
As Endless like the Sky,
I know your Love is Eternal for me….

I feel I am Blessed,
To have you beside….
And today I want to tell you,
What I feel for you inside….

This Bond that we share,
Is deeper than we know….
This feeling so Strong,
Shall only further Grow….
Even though we Fight,
This Love shall never Fail….

Like the colors of spring,
And freshness of mountain dew,
It will keep spreading our Warmth,
No matter where we go….

Like a beautiful poem,
Our Lives shall rhyme….
We will make beautiful Memories,
From time to time….

Have heard from pple “Someone somewhere is waiting for you”..
I am glad that I found My Someone in You….

Couldn’t have asked for a better blessing from God
To gift me the most lovely companion 
Not just for this Lifetime …. but for Eternity…@Sweet Angel Rree

Smile - beautiful song



Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...

If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just...

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just...

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...

If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile...

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

My Tribute:May ur soul rest in peace Michael....



Many pple remember MJ through the controversies that surrounded him…
Dunno if they were true or not...

But to me, I see Michael through his songs…through his voice ('Childhood' & "Smile" song)…through his lyrics('Heal the World' & 'Earth Song' & "Little Susie")…through his videos on world peace, homeless people and children...

I pray for his soul rests in peace and the legend will continue to live forever in hearts of many for his good work and for touching lives of many in a positive way.

Michael was born to make a differnce and he achieved it when he was alive...and now when he is not amongst us, I hope his legacy will be continued by many others who have been inspired by him through his songs, through his actions.

Fly away the soul in you...
To the sky high above....
Hope you find a better world....
That you always wanted & dreamt of....

LOve you Forever....

The Road Less Travelled




Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. @ Robert Frost

Why some people have all the luck?

Why do some people have all the luck while others never get the breaks they deserve? - By RICHARD WISEMAN (He is the author of `The Luck Factor' teaches at the University of Hertfordshire)



I set out to examine luck, 10 years ago. Why are some people always in the right place at the right time, while others consistently experience ill fortune? I placed advertisements in national newspapers asking for people who felt consistently lucky or unlucky to contact me.

Hundreds of extraordinary men and women volunteered for my research and over the years, have been interviewed by me. I have monitored their lives and had them take part in experiments. The results reveal that although these people have almost no insight into the causes of their luck, their thoughts and behaviour are responsible for much of their good and bad fortune. Take the case of seemingly chance opportunities. Lucky people consistently encounter such opportunities, whereas unlucky people do not.

I carried out a simple experiment to discover whether this was due to differences in their ability to spot such opportunities. I gave both lucky and unlucky people a newspaper, and asked them to look through it and tell me how many photographs were inside. I had secretly placed a large message halfway through the newspaper saying: 'Tell the experimenter you have seen this and win $50'.

This message took up half of the page and was written in type that was more than two inches high. It was staring everyone straight in the face, but the unlucky people tended to miss it and the lucky people tended to spot it.

Unlucky people are generally more tense than lucky people, and this anxiety disrupts their ability to notice the unexpected.

As a result, they miss opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else. They go to parties intent on finding their perfect partner and so miss opportunities to make good friends. They look through newspapers determined to find certain types of job advertisements and miss other types of jobs.

Lucky people are more relaxed and open, and therefore see what is there rather than just what they are looking for. My research eventually revealed that lucky people generate good fortune via four principles. They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.

I wondered towards the end of the work, whether these principles could be used to create good luck. I asked a group of volunteers to spend a month carrying out exercises designed to help them think and behave like a lucky person. Dramatic results! These exercises helped them spot chance opportunities, listen to their intuition, expect to be lucky, and be more resilient to bad luck. One month later, the volunteers returned and described what had happened. The results were dramatic: 80 per cent of people were now happier, more satisfied with their lives and, perhaps most important of all, luckier.

The lucky people had become even luckier and the unlucky had become lucky. Finally, i had found the elusive 'luck factor'. Here are four top tips for becoming lucky:

1) Listen to your gut instincts ^ they are normally right.

2) Be open to new experiences and breaking your normal routine.

3) Spend a few moments each day remembering things that went well.

4) Visualise yourself being lucky before an important meeting or telephone call.

Have a Lucky day and work for it.

The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect.

I believe I can Fly

I used to think that I could not go on.
And life was nothing but an awful song.
But now I know the meaning of true love.
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms.

If I can see it, then I can do it.
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it.
I believe I can fly.
I believe I can touch the sky.
I think about it every night and day.
Spread my wings and fly away.
I believe I can soar.
I see me running through that open door.
I believe I can fly.
I believe I can fly.
I believe I can fly.

See I was on the verge of breaking down.
Sometimes silence, it can seem so loud.
There are miracles in life I must achieve.
But first I know it starts inside of me.

If I can see it, then I can do it.
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it.
I believe I can fly.
I believe I can touch the sky.
I think about it every night and day.
Spread my wings and fly away.
I believe I can soar.
I see me running through that open door.
I believe I can fly.
I believe I can fly.
I believe I can fly... @R. KELLY

Heaven



Nothing seems closer to heaven
Than a beautiful sweet sunset
The touch of God’s sturdy hand
Seems as close as you can get

A pallet of subtle colors
Sometimes streak across the sky
Or brilliant vibrant shades
As you kiss the day goodbye

I think God is looking down
Smiling at what he’s created
And you know that He is proud
As His splendor is clearly stated

And the reflection in the water
Is like a look into our hearts
Are we peaceful and serene
Or would we like another start

So at the end of a busy day
Enjoy the priceless sunset
Because the evening brings us
As close to heaven as we can get..@ Marilyn Lott

Ray of Hope



When all about you is black with gloom,
And all you feel is pending doom.
When your bones are racked with grim despair -
When every breath is a gasp for air.
Keep on going, though you need to grope,
For around the bend is a ray of hope.

A ray of hope is perhaps all that's left,
As your will to live has been bereft.
You've lost it all, it's just no use!
You can end it all, you need no excuse.
But throw away that piece of rope,
And give yourself a chance of hope.

Just give yourself another day,
Brushing aside what your thoughts may say.
This is your life and you can make a new start,
By ignoring the brain - just follow the heart.
Taking baby steps in order to cope,
And minute by minute you'll build on your hope.

Build on your hope,. one day at a time,
Though the road be steep and hard to climb.
The hurts of the past - they should be dead.
The fears of the future are all in your head.
Just live in the present and refuse to mope
Your life will sparkle for you're living in hope...@Brian Quinn

How your Life would be? Is in your hands...




Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind.
Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind...
Life can be blissful and happy and free...
Life can put beauty in the things that you see...
Life can place challenges right at your feet...
Life can make good of the hardships we meet...
Life can overwhelm you and make your head spin...
Life can reward those determined to win...
Life can be hurtful and not always fair...
Life can surround you with people who care...
Life clearly does offer its Up and its Downs...
Life's days can bring you both smiles and frowns...
Life teaches us to take the good with the bad...
Life is a mixture of happy and sad...

So...

Take the Life that you have and give it your best...
Think positive, be happy let God do the rest...
Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet...
Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet...
To yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall...
Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all...
Take the love that you're given and return it with care...
Have faith that when needed it will always be there...
Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see...
Take life's simple pleasures let them set your heart free...
The idea here is simply to even the score...
As you are met and faced with Life's Tug of War ...@Heart and Soul Group

Let Go...

To let go does not mean to stop Caring,
It means I Can't do it for someone else.


To let go is not to Cut myself off,
It's the realization I can't Control another.

To let go is not to Enable,
But allow Learning from natural consequences.

To let go is to admit Powerlessness,
which means
The Outcome is not in my hands.

To let go is not to try to Change or Blame another,
It's to make the Most of Myself.

To let go is not to Care For,
But to Care About.

To let go is not to Fix,
But to be Supportive.

To let go is not to Judge,
But to allow another to be a Human being.

To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the Outcomes,
But to allow others to affect their Destinies.

To let go is not to be Protective,
It's to permit another to face Reality.

To let go is not to Deny,
But to Accept.

To let go is not to Nag, Scold or Argue,
But instead to Search out my own Shortcomings and Correct them.

To let go is not to adjust everything to my Desires,
But to take each day as it comes and Cherish Myself in it.

To let go is not to Criticize or Regulate anybody,
But to try to become what I Dream I can be.

To let go is not to Regret the Past,
But to Grow and Live for the Future.

To let go is to Fear less and Love more
Remember: THE TIME TO LOVE IS SHORT...@ Unknown

Unleash the Devil in ME


The dark side is never much fun
To view and contemplate
About number one
Jung exposes it
To all who dare look
Putting aside fear and subjectivity
To reveal an open book

Within our cocoon
We are both thrilled and reviled
For it’s in the analysis
That we see clearly awhile
To all brave souls
Who dare to peek
And examine our holes

Under the microscope
We are vulnerable and naked
Like Alice through a looking glass
We see ourselves tainted
But for those who might risk
To look inside
Meaning abounds, with an asterisk

So I challenge those few
Who profess to know all
Take a chance with yourself
And tear down the wall
Be kind to yourself
And follow your heart
To lessen the gulf

The dark side enlightens
And brings closure for those brave souls
Who risk condemnation
To capture their true roles
Live life knowing how to forgive
Yourself, above all others
Is the only way to live...@A. Keith Barton

So Inspiring - Team Hoyt

.................“ THERE ARE NO EXTRA-ORDINARY MEN...
..................JUST EXTRA-ORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES...
.............THAT ORDINARY MEN ARE FORCED TO DEAL WITH "

Saw this amazing Team Hoyt on Oprah Winfrey Show and was so moved. So glad to have found some clippings on YouTube and wanted to share wid u all...Parents will go to any extent just to see tat smile on their child's face. Nothing can ever replace the love of your parents. Please cherish Them.



More info: http://www.teamhoyt.com/


The goal of Team Hoyt is to integrate the physically challenged into everyday life.

One way to accomplish this is to educate the able-bodied, making them more aware of the issues that the disabled face every day.

Another is by actively helping the disabled to participate in activities that would otherwise be inaccessible to them.

Team Hoyt targets both of these areas.

A Restless Mind


Who am I?
Who are we?
What is our existence?
What is life?
Is there something more to life after death?
What is the main purpose of our life?

These questions have always been on my mind but the answers to these quests are not so easy to find.
Hence I am always restless…
I never feel completely satisfied even when I get success through my hard work and 100% involvement as I know I am missing the larger picture
But what exactly is this larger picture???
I am yet to find!!!

The only time in my life I have felt at peace with my soul is when I did something with my friends for 30-40 street kids on Xmas eve, i.e being santa to these kids…
That one genuine smile makes your day and leaves everlasting impression on your mind…but I wish to do more than just distributing gifts to street kids….I wish to transform these growing buds into blooming flowers through education…
And sooner I will…

http://www.flickr.com/photos/rreenasharma/332682818/in/set-72157594446576045/

I felt at ease when my friend and I celebrated my birthday with blind kids from Kamala Mehta School
Those Happy Birthday wishes still rings in my ears, the beautiful flowers that they have never seen were made by these girls and gifted to us brought tears to my eyes as I felt that how unfortunate are those people who cannot see GOD’s beautiful creation….but when I saw their talent, their discipline, their innocence, their confidence, I realized that god’s gift can be felt through sound of music, through touch of nature and many more things that people who have eyes yet are blind to see God's beautiful creation…
http://www.flickr.com/photos/rreenasharma/466808848/in/set-72157594446576045/

I feel at peace when I see happiness on my parents face as they are my prized possession.

I recently saw documentary Truth about God which talks about different religions and their different GOD…and I got curious about Buddhism…hence posting the article on 'Teachings of Buddha' below…

I have started meditating, trying to find solace for my restless mind and hoping that one day I might find answers to my questions…
Till then keep scaling higher heights in your professional life and keep doing good karmas,try to bring a positive change in yourself and to people around you, specially the unfortunate one's an make them feel that this world is indeed beautiful…

Looking out for SPIRITUAL FREEDOM ....@ Sweet Angel Rree

Teachings of Buddha

Pic Courtesy - http://www.flickr.com/photos/littlelakey/109721663/

Buddha said,

The kind of Seed sown
Will produce that kind of Fruit.
Those who do Good will Reap good results.
Those who do Evil will reap evil results.
You carefully plant a good seed,
You will joyfully gather good fruit
- Dhammapada


THE FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS

1.There is Suffering - Suffering is common to all.

Suffering: Everyone suffers from these thing
Birth- When we are born, we cry.
Sickness- When we are sick, we are miserable.
Old age- When old, we will have ache and pains and find it hard to get around.
Death- None of us wants to die. We feel deep sorrow when someone dies.
Other things we suffer from are:
Being with those we dislike,
Being apart from those we love,
Not getting what we want,
All kinds of problems and disappointments that are unavoidable.

The Buddha did not deny that there is happiness in life, but he pointed out it does not last forever. Eventually everyone meets with some kind of suffering. He said:
"There is happiness in life,
happiness in friendship,
happiness of a family,
happiness in a healthy body and mind,
...but when one loses them, there is suffering."
- Dhammapada


2. Cause of Suffering - We are the cause of our suffering.
The Buddha explained that people live in a sea of suffering because of ignorance and greed. They are ignorant of the law of karma and are greedy for the wrong kind of pleasures. They do things that are harmful to their bodies and peace of mind, so they can not be satisfied or enjoy life.

For example, once children have had a taste of candy, they want more. When they can't have it, they get upset. Even if children get all the candy they want, they soon get tired of it and want something else. Although, they get a stomach-ache from eating too much candy, they still want more. The things people want most cause them the most suffering. Of course, there are basic things that all people should have, like adequate food, shelter, and clothing. Everyone deserve a good home, loving parents, and good friends. They should enjoy life and cherish their possessions without becoming greedy.

3. End of Suffering - Stop doing what causes suffering.
To end suffering, one must cut off greed and ignorance. This means changing one's views and living in a more natural and peaceful way. It is like blowing out a candle. The flame of suffering is put out for good. Buddhists call the state in which all suffering is ended Nirvana. Nirvana is an everlasting state of great joy and peace. The Buddha said, "The extinction of desire is Nirvana." This is the ultimate goal in Buddhism. Everyone can realize it with the help of the Buddha's teachings. It can be experienced in this very life.

4. Path to end Suffering - Everyone can be enlightened.
The path to end suffering is known as the Noble Eightfold Path. It is also known as the Middle Way.



THE NOBLE EIGHTFOLD PATH

When the Buddha gave his first sermon in the Deer Park, he began the 'Turning of the Dharma Wheel'. He chose the beautiful symbol of the wheel with its eight spokes to represent the Noble Eightfold Path. The Buddha's teaching goes round and round like a great wheel that never stops, leading to the central point of the wheel, the only point which is fixed, Nirvana. The eight spokes on the wheel represent the eight parts of the Noble Eightfold Path. Just as every spoke is needed for the wheel to keep turning, we need to follow each step of the path.


1. Right View. The right way to think about life is to see the world through the eyes of the Buddha--with wisdom and compassion.

2. Right Thought. We are what we think. Clear and kind thoughts build good, strong characters.

3. Right Speech. By speaking kind and helpful words, we are respected and trusted by everyone.

4. Right Conduct. No matter what we say, others know us from the way we behave. Before we criticize others, we should first see what we do ourselves.

5. Right Livelihood. This means choosing a job that does not hurt others. The Buddha said, "Do not earn your living by harming others. Do not seek happiness by making others unhappy."

6. Right Effort. A worthwhile life means doing our best at all times and having good will toward others. This also means not wasting effort on things that harm ourselves and others.

7. Right Mindfulness. This means being aware of our thoughts, words, and deeds.

8. Right Concentration. Focus on one thought or object at a time. By doing this, we can be quiet and attain true peace of mind.

Following the Noble Eightfold Path can be compared to cultivating a garden, but in Buddhism one cultivates one's wisdom. The mind is the ground and thoughts are seeds. Deeds are ways one cares for the garden. Our faults are weeds. Pulling them out is like weeding a garden. The harvest is real and lasting happiness.

If I knew it would be the last time...

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd see you fall asleep,
I'd tuck you in more tightly,
And pray your soul to keep.


If I knew it would be the last time
I'd see you walk out the door,
I'd hug you and kiss you--and call you
Back for just one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
We'd spare a minute or two,
I'd stop and say "I love you,"
Instead of assuming you know I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd be there to share your day,
I wouldn't wait until tomorrow,
Letting time with you slip away.

For surely there is a tomorrow
To make up for an oversight,
And we'll always get a second chance
To make everything all right.

There will always be another chance
To say our "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
To say our "What I can do."

But just in case I might be wrong,
And today is all I get,
I'd like to say I love you,
And hope you never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
Young or old alike,
And today might be your last chance
To hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
Why not do it all today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
You will surely regret the day

You didn't take the extra time
For a smile or hug or kiss.
And you surely aren't too busy to grant
What may be their last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
And whisper in their ear;
Tell them how much you love them,
And that you'll always hold them dear.

Take the time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Forgive me," or "It's okay,"
And if tomorrow never comes,
You'll have no regrets about today... @Unknown

PS - My closest pal had come down to Mumbai for few days from Indore for her wedding shopping and we all friends took this opportunity to catch up with each other. Due to some other committments, I would be unable to attend her wedding in FEB, O8.

We both had shared our Life's Ups and Downs, be a support to each other in times of despair and multiply our happiness when special occassions were there...I know we both had lots to catcup with, to share and talk about our lives, ever since she moved to Indore from Mumbai. But time was the biggest crunch.

And while I was waving her goodbye, It suddenly struck me that probably this would be the Last Time, I would be seeing my buddy in person as she would be off to US after her marriage...

I know Life goes on...and we all would get busy with our own world...but for the past few days, have been feeling very senti, felt like one beautiful chapter of my life has come to an end and I will miss my sweet friend.

After all the only treasure I cherish, are my Parents, closest Friends and few relatives of mine.

Never lose a moment to tell ur near and dear ones, how special they are to U, cause a moment once gone, might never come back again.

Its never too late to show how much you care, how much you love them....@Rree

Can YoU hear Me even in my Silence....


Silence is not a lack of words.
Silence is not a lack of music.
Silence is not a lack of curses.
Silence is not a lack of screams.
Silence is not a lack of colors
or voices or bodies or whistling wind.
Silence is not a lack of anything.

Silence is seeing and singing praises.
Silence is the roar of ocean waves.
Silence is the sandpiper dancing on the shore.
Silence is the vastness of a whale.
Silence is a blade of grass.

Silence is sound
And silence is silence.
Silence is love, even
The love that hides in hate.

Silence is the healer dreaming the plant,
The drummer drumming the dream.
It is the lover's exhausted fall into sleep.
It is the call of morning birds.

Silence is God's beat tapping all hearts.
Silence is the star kissing a flower.
Silence is a word, a hope, a candle lighting the window of home.
Silence is everything
The renewing sleep of Earth,
The purifying dream of Water,
The purifying rage of Fire,
The soaring and spiraling flight of Air.
It is all things dissolved into no-thing
Silence is with you always
The Presence of I am …@Elaine Maria Upton

Thinking of YoU...


The sun is setting on a lonely day
The colours are splitting, the perfect way
Your strolling home as you see this too
And I watch from a window thinking of you

From this day on, Ill look forever
That magical sunset, our memories together
To help me through when my life gets tough
And when I feel that Ive had enough

The sun you see, makes me think of you
The miracle of it, the wonder too
I see you both everyday as you know
To stop seeing either, Id have to say, no

The bright colours shine from within my heart
The colours of a sunset, a special part
Of a day in my life I wish you could see
Just whats its like, just to be me...@Grooveysaz

U got to search the Light in U, in ur Darkest phase in LIFE

My light and my life
provided me hope for a future,
a reason to live
and the strength to exist.

Suddenly extinguished,
taken away without warning.
I was abandoned,
left in the darkness
trying to survive
searching for any glimmer
on the distant horizon.

I stand precariously
on a piece of solid ground
barely large enough for my feet.
Around me, a vast expanse
of desolation and emptiness
for as far as I can tell.

It waits
with extending arms
to engulf and surround me
in a permanent shadow.

I remain tenuously balanced
on this small bit of solid footing
Providing me the last vestiges of hope,
Unsure where to turn
or how to find an escape.

No path in sight,
it has decayed into the abyss.
No light to guide my footsteps,
it has been withdrawn.

In complete blackness
I close my eyes
waiting to fall.

A light appears before me
no,
from within me.

I discover
a brilliance inside
An internal source of strength, power
and illumination.

This force surges through my body
filling me with courage.
I open my eyes once more in the darkness
finally lose my balance,
and descend
into the eternal night.

But in falling, I discover
that I possess wings.

With new courage, my own light,
and wings to save me
from the everlasting darkness
I take flight
high above the waiting chasm
towards a faint glimmer
far on the horizon
and hope.....@ Kirsti A. Dyer

PS - One phase of my Life in 2007 best described by this poem...This phase taught me a lot of things in my Life, made me a stronger person and above all I recd the best compliment from my parents "You are not just a daughter but like a Son to us"...

Moreover, my closest friend emerged victorious from a fatal accident and was juggling between life and death in ICU. His second Life was the biggest Gift, God could bless us with, and now it feels like a bad dream getting over...

But posting this poem tat will remind me of my Power that I realised was within Me...

I have faith in GOD and I know God will work out the best for each one of us. May be this bad phase was actually a Blessing in Disguise which we will realise with time....

"Can I stay with You forever ?"...asks, Innocence.

Dunno the names of these kids but I call them from L-R (Joy, Hope and Care) with reference to their expression and posture.

"I": here is Innocence
"You" : here is Children....

I belong to you...
You Belong to me...
Together We make this Merrier World
Filled with Love and Purity...

But soon You will Grow
And leave me behind
With Tears in eyes
I will fare you Goodbye...
Cause this is Life
This is Destiny.... @Sweet Angel Rree

Homeless Children


Based on the poem that i had written on Xmas Eve for homeless children.
It talks about Homeless kids, their situations and Adoption.
For me Adoption also means by providing financial help to atleast one child for their Education or if possible volunteer to teach street kids whichever skill you good at.
Just a rough cut...music is yet to be decided.

Yes I am Blind...But I see the world through the sound of Music


Yes I am blind
Cant u see
I am blind
To the discrimination made on caste and creed

Yes I am blind
Cant you see
I am blind
To the emotion of Lust and Greed.

Yes I am blind
Cant you see
I am blind
To the pain that comes from jealousy

Yes I am blind
Cant you see
I am blind
To the reasons that pave way for wars due to Fallacy.

I do see the world, through the sound of Music
Which is made of Love, Joy and Harmony
I do see the world, through the eyes of my Soul
Which believes in Humanity as its ultimate Goal

I do see the world, through the words of Compassion
Which helps me nurture my spiritual role
I do see the world, with the touch of passion
That comes from the people who have heart of gold.

Sometimes I just wonder,
Why cant the world be
.
..
...
….
…..
……BLIND like me?????
Be blind to hatred, caste, lust and greed
And see the world as I see.....@from a blind girl's point of view, written by Sweet Angel Rree.


PS - Pic captured and poem written by Me...
On my birthday this year 20th April, I decided to share my happiness wid beautiful young girls of a Blind School and my life found a new meaning. This was the most memorable birthday of my life till now.

"Value Life
and treasure Love...and let the chain reaction continue"

My Soul Cant Take It No More...Torn Out...


Am I at fault
For all the wrongs u did
I don’t say you are 100% responsible
But is it the statistics is what we have to live with…

When I was going through the dark phase
You assumed I was fine
Cause I never showed you my tears
And how much my heart was aching inside

We knew things were not right
But we couldn’t help it solve
Now you hold me responsible for everything
Even though deep inside you know
But if u don’t want to acknowledge it
I cant say further… no more…

Now that I want to move on
You make things more difficult for me
The common friends that we had
Have become so uncommon to me

But I don’t want to get hurt no more
And this would be the last time
That I will pour my heart on this matter again
As I have torn this chapter...From my Life…

and I hope it never comes back to me ever again... @Sweet Angel Rree

PS - My Soul cant Take It Anymore....There is a calmness on my face but deep within...my soul is tearing apart....

Together we Dream
To touch the sky
We will reach our Goal
No matter how Hard we have to try

We give you the platform
To showcase your skill

To take your company uphill

We know how to mend the rules
And make an innovation

Away from surly Bonds of earth
Hoping to get new Life after death
To see the World up next
To see the space crafts moving away from Earth
Connecting places far from the Earth

But the saddest thing for me will be I wont Exist
Hoping for New life after death

To see the inventions made by the scientists
But the saddest thing for me will be I wont exist
From Ash to Ash
and there I will remain,
Only sweet memories
That will retain,
For me I wont be able to see the whole new world
As the saddest thing for me will be I wont exist
Hence hoping for new life after death

Away from this worldly stage
Leading my role and passing away
For death will lay its icy hands on me (when i grow OLD)
Away from surly bonds of earth
Hoping to get new life after death.. @Sweet Angel Rree

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics


I want to break free
From the negative thoughts I breed

Its not my fault you see
But the people whom I encountered have made me feel


That everyone has put on a mask
And most of them have a hidden task

They will tell you what you want to hear
At the cost that maybe you wont be able to bear

But now to protect myself from anymore pain
I see everyone as same
I know I am not to gain
But my life is no longer the same


Life they say is a colourful picture
But thanks to these people I see it as black and white

….
…..
……

Hey but I have not given hope
And I want to give chance to people in life I explore

Hence I want to break free

From the negative thoughts I breed... @Sweet Angel Rree

LoVe bUiLt On AsHeS oF tRuSt...

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics


Never in my thoughts
I had ever imagined
That a day like this would come
That you would build your castle of Love
From the burning ashes of our Trust

How does it happen?
That a bond of few years is much more Powerful
Than the beautiful bond you share with your Family for so many years

Or is Love really so blind to see
Or you have become so Selfish to feel
To feel the pain what your Family is going through
Or maybe you blindfolded to even See what you getting into

What you think is Gold for you
Is actually nothing but Worthless stones now in your Destiny

But by the Time you realize it
People who trusted You the most
Will no longer be there
To show you the Way
Cause a Heart / Trust once broken can never be mended
And you really DESERVE where you have landed…

Kabhi aisa socha bhi na tha
Ki zindagi mein yeh modh bhi aayega
Jab tum khudka aashiyan banoege
Apno ka hi aashiyan jalakar

Kisi ke pyar ke kuch pal-bhar ke saath ke liye
Tumne todh di rishton ki woh dor
Jise seencha tha humne pyar aur vishwas se

Par kabhi itna to socha hota
Ki jab tum hamara vishwas na rakh saki
To fir kisi aur ka vishwas kaise rakh paaogi

Hum to fir bhi yehi dua karenge
Ki tum jahan raho…khush raho…

Chahe hum khud iss gham(avishwas) ki aag mein zindagi bhar jalte rahein…@Sweet Angel Rree

Those Merrier Days...

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics


When I close my Eyes
I think about those Days
The days when we were all Together
I cried within my Heart
But not a noise I could make
Since,
I had to live my Life all alone further.

Today I am all Alone,
With no one by my side
All alone trying to climb the Ladder
But when I look back
And think about those days
The Days,
When we were all together.

I feel like Flying
But I don’t have feathers
I wish we could all be back Together
And bring back those Merrier days
Which we all had wished should be Forever.

I feel so Helpless today
Without you all by my side
And from deep within my Heart
I really want to describe,
The intense Love I have for You all
Shall always remain Forever........... @Sweet Angel Rree

In Search Of....

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

I need someone…
To hold me on,
hold me on,
When things go wrong,
To hold me tight…
When things are just not right….

I need someone…
As a friend,
As a friend,
Who can understand…
Understand, my life’s up and down…

I need someone…
To whom I trust,
To whom I trust
And share my secret lusts…
To help me out, in my all rights and wrong…

I need someone…
To lean upon,
To lean upon,
And cry my song…
To hold my tears,
And make me forget my fears…

I need someone…
To give (them) back,
To give (them) back,
All my lovingness…
And all the things of which I was in
SEARCH OF…… @Sweet Angel Rree
PS - Poem was written when in engineering college when my closest friend Boskey whom i knew since Junior College ditched me and my friendship...Was really hurt with the incident...

Homeless Children.....

Of all the homeless Children
Who are the future citizens?
Have doomed their life in poverty
And are considered to be sick and dirty
There is no one to give them a helping hand
And to show them where their future lands
We all are so busy in our world
And we don’t even care of such blooming buds

Today is a day to celebrate
Cause today is Christmas Eve
When Santa comes to fulfill children’s wishes
Visits their home and loads gifts in their stockings

But what about the children who are homeless
With their sorrows and sadness which are endless
Will their wishes be ever fulfilled
Of having a better life to live
Of having better clothes to wear
Of having the opportunity to educate themselves
And leave a remarkable mark somewhere

Will there be a bright sunshine
Will they have a star to shine
Cause no matter what they are today, tomorrow shall be fine
Because there is someone up there
Who shall let down a beautiful Pair
The Pair who will embrace one of the children
And make their careers as well as a Humble Human... @Sweet Angel Rree


ADOPTION IS THE KEY TO HELP ATLEAST ONE CHILD TO GET A SMILE ON HIS FACE SO THAT HE FEELS THAT HIS LIFE DOES HAVE SOME SUBSTANCE TO IT.

JOURNEY OF LIFE.........

I see the train(of death) departing in front of my eyes,
And see all my near and dear ones waving me goodbye,
This was a dream, which I don’t want it to be true,
Cause these were the people, whom I had leaned on to,
During my bad times and
During my good times.

The whole existence of life is mystery to us,
The cycle of life and death can never be unfolded by us,
The question of “Who Am I?” always runs on my mind,
But the answer to this quest is really had to find.

And now I have understood,
That it’s no use to wander in the woods,
Cause one should believe what is in front of them,
And stop running after things, which are not there.

So let us all pray together,
And thank the “Almighty the Savior”,
For giving us the opportunity to see its beautiful creation,
And try to preserve it forever... @Sweet Angel Rree

Khushi....

Kyun kisi aur ki khushi mein apni khushiyan talashte hain hum…
Kyun apni hi khushi se milo door bhagte hain hum …
Kyun gum ko hum apne itne kareeb laate hain…
Kyun apni hi khushi mein khudko savarte nahi hum…

Kyun gum ke iss sagar mein do boond khushi ke nahi mil paate…
Kyun khudko hum iss layak nahi samajh paate…
Ki khushi bhi ek din hamare kadam chumengi…
Aur hum bhi apni khushi mein muskura sakenge…

Do din ki iss zindagi mein, kya do pal khushi ke milna hai mushkil…
Ya fir hum hi apne aankhon ko moond kar hai baithe…
Ae musafir khushi tere kadmo mein hi hai…
Bas do kadam aage badhakar to dekhe…

Gum ke iss aanchal ko hatane ke liye, kisi ka saath hona zaroori nahi…
Lekin yeh zaroori hai ki tum khudka saath nibhate raho…
Jab apni hi khushi mein tumhe khushi nazar aaye…
To fir gam ka kabhi namonishan na ho…

Khudko apni soch mein dhalna itna bhi mushkil nahi…
Doosro ki zindagi ko jeena itna aasan bhi nahi…
Apni khushi ko itna paraya bhi na samjho…
Ki vo fir kabhi tumhara darwaza khatkhataye hi nahi…

Apni hi khushiyon mein khudko savaro
Aur samjho ki zindagi ka safar itna bhi kathin nahi… @Sweet Angel Rree

May you get all the happiness
Of which you were in search of,
May you get all the love
Of which you had always longed for,
May success kiss your feet in everything you do
These are things that I wish for You!!!

May lady luck be always by your side
And you become so strong that,
You can take each failure in a positive stride

You look at it with a big wide smile
Thinking that,
Although it was difficult but still was a joyful ride!!!

May the coming years be more successful and peaceful for you
These are the things I wish for You!!!

Give Happiness a Chance !

There are times when things don’t go Right,
There are times when people don’t understand your Plight,
There are times when you don’t get what you Wanted,
And for every single thing you are being Taunted.

So what the times are not Right,
You should have the will to Fight,
Give ‘Happiness a Chance’ and you shall find,
By removing the Pessimism from the mind,
That for every Lock there is a Key,
It is only upto YOU to SEE!!!

Face of Today's World !



What has happened to the world?
What has happened to all of us?
Have we become the slaves of money?
Or helping someone has become very funny!!!
Have we been thinking too much of ourselves,
Or have we forgotten to be selfless!!!

The whole world is in pain
And we have become so insane,
Cause we do not feel the pain of others
No matter even if she is our mother.

Where has all the love gone?
Where has all the peace gone?
Have we dumped them in one corner?
And think of it as a foreigner,
Or money is everything,
And humanity gains nothing!!!

When I see someone in pain
I do feel the same,
But if I don’t help the helpless
There is no one to gain,
Therefore I want to be so powerful
To provide the needy the needful,
So that atleast I can make someone smile,
And make them forget their pain for a little while!!!

God give the courage,
So that I can fulfill my Wish,
To make a better place for atleast some people!!!!


PS - I had written this poem when one of my friend’s relative and her young son met with an accident while they were driving on a scooter…the child died on the spot and the woman was crying in pain in the middle of the road… but none of the mute spectators came forward to help her out…Today this woman is completely paralyzed from below her neck…but she has still not given her hopes to live life without being dependant on even her husband who has left her alone after the incident…


Also in a time where in science technology and education we might be going forward but our moral values are certainly going downward…cause even the highly educated people do not wish to take responsibilities of their old parents…

Where are we all heading towards????

The Memories Remain...

Times have passed by
Little do we realize?
We have dumped our past
Somewhere deep inside,
But then on certain occasions
We shed those dried leaves outside,
And try to gather them
With joys and tears and loving smile.

Today the time has come
When you sit back and recall the times,
The times when we all used to be together,
Having all the fun and frolic,
Which we knew, would not be forever.

So what, today we all are not together
The times do change and so does the weather,
But one thing that will never change,
i.e., the love and warmth – which are the only treasures.
The treasures, which mean to me more than gold,
With its price untold,
Therefore can never be sold,
Only shared with few more people and
Enjoyed as the moments get unfold.

But once again the chapters of past will be closed,
Waiting for another time to reopen.

Help the Helpless……..


She cannot walk
Everyone can see it,
She has lost one leg
Can’t we feel it?

The pain through which she is going
Seems for her never ending, but time shall heal,
And her life is like a journey of a car without a wheel.

There is no one to give her a helping hand
And she feels like she is trapped in sinking sand,
Where there is no hope to survive
And she finds no good meaning to her life.

But it is for us to make her see
That the world is not that bad as she feels,
A little time devoted for someone else’s need
Will also bring good luck to you indeed

Cause the famous proverb says “ As u Sow, so shall u Reap”
If not for Good for others, do it for your own Selfish need
Thinking that God might forgive some of your bad deeds
And this World could be a better place to live in
For U, For Me and For Everyone indeed!!!! @Sweet Angel Rree...

PS - Was walking down Bandra station with my colleagues from engineering classes and witnessed a woman dragging herself on the platform...Everyone looked upon her but no one was ready to help her out...the woman had no legs and no crutches to support herself...
And because she was dirty and poor, no one wanted to give a helping hand...I wonder what has been the use of education, going to TOP schools and institutes, working with the MNC's and top National companies, when it doesnt teach you to be BASIC HUMAN...
It was quite a bad plight to see, that no one was willing to come forward, which made me write this poem...
Eventually, my friend and I helped the woman...We became her support and made her sit on the waiting chair...she seemed hungry so we offered her some food and water...
I feel this is our basic duty towards all LIFE forms on this planet...A little compassion shown would only form a chain reaction of goodness...and probably wash off some of your bad sins...so please do it for your own selfish need...
