ज़िन्दगी एक पहेली

रात गयी , और दिन नयी 
हर दिन एक नयी शुरुवात  बनी 

बच्चपन में तो कूब मज़े की 
रोते जगध्ते और हस्ते हुए  भी 

इसी तरह सारा जीवन चलता रहा 
ना  जाने कब बच्चपन ,जवानी में बदला 

यह दुनिया की सफर तो है बड़ी लम्बी 
कभी रुलाती है कभी हस्साती भी यही 

कधम कधम रक्ते जायेंगे सभी  
किसी और की राहें या अपने कुद  की 

सुख दुःख का पहिया चल्ता रहेगा 
अँधेरा हो या फिर उज्जाला भरा 

बुढ़ापा  तो हमें बोहुत तड्पाएगा 
आक़ीर फूल किला तो मर भी जायेगा 

Manna dey's music is evergreen

Its sad to know we have lost a great playback singer who had done a great contribution to the Indian film industry with all his great songs. From " Yeh raat bheegi bheegi "  to " zindagi kaisi hai paheli" , every song has touched my heart with the lyrics it has and the emotions it had been sung with.
Among the songs i have heard till date, old Hindi classics have always made me relate the song with my mood and most of the old songs i hear to is of this legendary singer. Each of his songs are not just sung with a syncronising music but also has such deep meanings of love and life.
This is one such song with the depth ...
         रात गयी  फिर दिन आता है
        इसी तरह आते जाते है
        यह सारा जीवन जाता है

        इत्ना बडा सफ़र दुनिया का
        एक रोता एक मुस्कुराता है

        कदम कदम रक्ता है राही
        कितनी दूर चला जाता है
        एक एक तिन्के तिन्के से
        पंची का घर बन जाता है
         कभी अँधेरा कभी उजाला
         फूल खिला फिर मरजाता है

         खेला बच्चपन हंसी जवानी
         मगर बुडापा तड़पाता है

         सुख दुःख का पहिया चलता है
         वही नसीबा कहलाता है

Even though Manna Dey has left this world, he will be remembered and will live through the songs he has sung to the world.

nosy people and anger management

It had always been a concern to me when ever i ended up getting annoyed when i am questioned many times about random things. Initially it made my parents feel i wouldn't be able to maintain good relations because of my anger ,but what was the cause? was it just because i was not cooperating and was being moody all the time?
I was asked to take some anger management therapies and to even practice meditation,which i did. I did get a lot of peace of mind , and my concentration in studies did increase,but it dint really  serve the main purpose. On pondering over what went wrong, i realized the people who had questioned me had been very inquisitive in my personal matters,which i dint want to answer to them. it wasnt just me who would have  got pissed off,by the questions. i guess anyone else too would. But back then in school ,i was not so matured enough to think people would be so nosy in others affairs. and nor did i know how to reply back what was necessary and not everything i was asked. or to even be rudely straight forward to them  or not want to answer some questions.all this irritation did breed in me,and tickled all the hormones which get affected by anger.

Realizing how harmful it was to survive around such nosy people because they want to compare their progress in life to others in order to feel Good about themselves.Or may be nosy people aren't doers they try to achieve their goal of superiority without doing much effort. When nosy people hear about someone who became very successful they try to dig behind his success not to learn from him but to prove to themselves that he is not that successful or that he succeeded by luck. Again their actions have one purpose which is making them feel good about themselves without doing any effort.

I still feel the same annoyance when come i  across people who are very nosy and dig into my personal matters ,but i did learnt to manage the situation in a much calm manner. the book called "how to get over anyone in few days" is one book which helped me with it. it does take lot of effort and practical implementation to manage an anger free conversation with the nosy people though. but ultimately its worth the try not just for for getting over nosy people but one also learns the way to get along well in a conversation.
after all not everyone we talk are always nosy.

An art so rich

As a kid I was always inspired by the old Indian temple art and architecture. Of all what fascinated me was the Tanjore paintings which has always been a possessed thing by any very well to do - rich family. (Maybe not, I feel so just for the way 'these' people talk about having given such a high price for a painting) whatever it may be.
I was so amazed for the clean and detailed workmanship of these paintings. The stone studded jewelries , the gold work, the highlights and shading of the gods had always been one form of art I ever wanted to learn.
Since I am a right brained person, I have always showed my creativity in whatsoever.
Like paper art, art from scrap,painting, embroidery, poetry, music; I always ended up giving an art attack to everybody at home. ;)
Finally when I was good enough at them, I decided to learn the art I always wanted to.
I learnt it and ended up with this.

Change is the only constant!

That is one famous phrase i have always used, from the time I had ever heard/read it somewhere. But how easy is it to adapt to the change?

Till this moment I always thought it was something very easy to do as long as one foresees the future situation,makes up his /her mind about frequency as to how much it would impact himself/herself personally. But is it that easy?
But now the point is, how good is the person good enough at making this judgement? Until he starts to experience the situation.

On having been a person who has always loved interactions with different kind of people in the different places you get to meet them, it is really hard to not socialize in the usual way as before. Likewise, it is even more difficult to force someone to talk to you when you want them to. Or to talk to them when you are in a least interested mood.

Now that would have sounded weird. But, how easy is it for someone who has been a big time socialite, atleast among the people around him/her, not to be in the limelight for days?

It is as bad as. Late. Benazir butto's who had been on self exile for nine years or Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma having been house arrested for 15 years or..  Why not?   Like the versatile actor Kamal Hassan, who was blamed for his movie viswaroopam, which has been one indian movie of good standards than the usual ones with a routine story line of the same genre any indian film of any regional language has taken. With an utter waste of four or five songs with a bit of annoying hip shaking dance which could be better shown. 

But I guess it isn't as bad or hard neither, for a socialite to be speak less. Perhaps, its always better to be less interactive than to give space for others to play a game called politics.
