Happiness comes in small packets !!!

It’s been a long time since I last spent some time with myself.  The hustle bustle of everyday life has kind of robbed me off that me-time! 

Nevertheless I felt a strange sense of awakening today, as I stood outside a defunct store more precisely under its roof in pouring rain. I stood there in silence being one amongst the crowd seeking shelter from the rain.

That moment there, watching the rain was an incredible sight to my eyes. On the other side of the road on the wall were posters of some Tollywood and Sandalwood movie (read Telagu and Kannada film Industry respectively). Couple of rickshaws slowed down hoping to get few passengers but they didn’t get any. Not because there weren’t any, but because they were asking obnoxious price to ferry people. People half drenched in rain kept alighting and getting into the buses which did stop there.

For many a people this might be just another moment in their life, but I believe people seldom think so much about such moments. But such silly and small moments make what we call life. To me beauty always lies in such small moments of life.

Anyways the rain never stopped, as it’s subsided to become light drizzle I walked into the streets. Spreading my arms like wings, I took a deep breath.  I was slightly wet in rain by now,  as I started to walk down the road towards my home.  I could feel a sense of peace, peace not elsewhere in the world but peace within, in that tiny yet valuable moment. It was a moment where I could feel from within, what I would call the moment of happiness. 

Silly as it may sound, happiness comes in small packets. 

Cheers and stay happy! Peace!

  1. It's the little things in life that add up to make it beautiful. Like the song says, "Slow down, you move too fast. You've got to make the morning last"

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.

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.
