Beautiful Sunday


It was yet another Sunday in my life. I pushed myself out of the bed trying to beat the weekend laziness. I struggled hard and I succeeded. I was welcomed by heavy rain and I could feel it in the breeze of wind which blew into my room through the open windows.

I went out in pouring rain with my broken umbrella. Hunting for breakfast exploring the new locality I recently moved into. For the first time in many weeks I felt good about the rain. It wasn’t the first rain nor would it be the last of this season.

I felt within me the excitement of a kid. Smiling all along as I walked on the streets. Vehicles where zipping past splashing water against me. I took a look around, some people engrossed in thoughts, a group of friends walking alongside giggling and talking aloud amongst them and many others who where trying to get somewhere.

I loved it all and seamed to be happy about the rain. Remembering even I once used to enjoy the season. But then somewhere along the journey of life I had got too busy with life, sparing no time to enjoy the little gifts of life.

I had a lovely breakfast at small little eatery, a delicious breakfast I need to say. It was simple nothing elaborate. Yet the feeling of hot breakfast and steaming cup of tea in pouring rain was amazing.

I then saw a beautiful couple sitting across me at the table. There was something about them. They weren’t too flashy. They where just another young couple, who may have just ventured out of their house to skip the routine home cooked breakfast. But what was beautiful about them was the love they shared, those little moments. They where happy and it was evident in their smile. They where exchanging those little glances which spoke of commitment and love for each other. Happiness and Love seamed to be the mood of the day.

Feeling blissful about the beautiful rainy Sunday I then stared walking back to my room. Under the broken umbrella I saw the man within me happy and pleased. What a lovely morning it had turned out for me.

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

-VJ says ~ cheers and peace

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
