The Search Ends

In the beginning of days
Awakening from the shambles,he lays
In the search of the elixir
And now came this time
Of the closure.

A realisation of reality
The truth which can never be forgotten
Like the petrichor in its utmost purity
He finally abandoned the wagon

The tale starts here..

There is one thing,one thing
In everyone’s life, which can sting
A piece of puzzle required to complete
And to give the polish to the jewels, make them neat

He had delved deep, really deep
Into the deepest chambers, every corner adorned with his peep
Lost in the lines, without which are useless these fingers

When you swim through the water
He pondered with his glistening stones
All he could see was an otter
A curious combination of earth and water ,he moans

Earth known for its stability and strength
He had found the piece,after going to this length
Water which is adjustable and changeable.
He completed his puzzle, and couldn’t believe all this could be attainable

The piece who’s search was from an age
He believed it was the blessing of a sage
Like the quasars, shone his visage
Unknown of the fact it was just a mirage

Was the piece, which was longed for
Really completing his circle of life
How come the piece has become an inferno
Now the otter was an object of abhor

Realisation was late,but not in vain
This pain made him gain
The awareness of the fact
That the last piece to the tract
Was nowhere,but in his heart

He realised the last piece
Was his end of search for the last piece
The realisation brought a scene in front of his eyes
Where he saw the fingers get adorned with the lines.

Awakening from the shambles,he lays
Not in the search of elixir
And now came this time of closure.

No Inhibition

This is such a warm support from all of you…COLLAB-A-THON is gaining so much love….

Collaboration Welcome


So…I have recently collaborated with jiyaraobreeze @ J Raouf . Do checkout her blog.She is like a breath of fresh air and is one of the most optimistic and encouraging person I have ever encountered in my life.
The thoughts below are expressed by both Jiya and Rida.

       Concern on Mental Health and                Taboos relating with it.

I discussed with Jiya that how mental health issues are not discussed socially and in many countries…it is perceived that only a mentally retarded person goes to a psychologist.

I was planning to do something with Jiya related to mental health issues especially regarding teenagers..

It is not a shame if you are suffering from depression or mental health issues…we all have gone through it…You..Me..Everyone!
It is high time that people give attention to the health if our minds.

In India, every hour, a student does suicide because of pressure of studies or poor academic result.


Jiya Speaks

“This is a great idea and of course, I also think that there are other bullying issues that are hidden for example covert racism. I was thinking we could bring in people from the BAME community (minority ethnic groups) and they could share their feelings about bullying too! 

I’ve been through bullying at school, been through racism and also “othering.” In high school, I experienced a lot of bad friends and they would stir up rumours and I’d end up having a physical fight with someone. There were teachers that just walked on by and nothing was done about it. The problem is that there aren’t enough ethnic teachers who understand.

It’s more of an issue in a school where most teachers are not from minority backgrounds. If I were to raise awareness about anything it would be that there needs to be more done to include kids from ethnic backgrounds. But I’m glad to see that you’re bringing awareness about bullying. 
We also need to think about the counselors and whether they get what their students are going through” 🙂

Due to stigma, people are often reluctant to seek help at their counseling center.
When we people will openly express their emotions, other teenagers and folks are likelier to do the same. This decreases stigma and makes  others in need more likely to seek counseling.

Come forward and say…

Murder Of The Locks(A Suggested Post)

Hiya Folks!!

My lovely Merakians❤❤

So..I had a suggestion from a dear friend..Anirudh bro.. where he suggested that I use my style of poetry to portray social issues..I was so moved that I thought that it should be implemented ASAP.

Such Motivating Words😊

This poem is very special as it is dedicated to the bravest and most strongest of the women who didn’t break even in the worst experiences of their lives…


She had the most luscious locks

Which she was always proud of

Had  her hair

looked after 

By her mother

With sheer pride

Till she became the bonny bride

Alas! The kingdom of my fantasies

My world, my dreams , my king who’s 

most precious is his queen

But what was this fate…this ill destiny

Wrapped in this painful ecstasy

His myriad emotions..

 the strangest  mélange of feelings

Her wrists clenched by the fists of devil

Did she deserve to be beaten like a slave

Caged like the injured bird

Stoned by those marring beatings.

Those locks..those beautiful locks

Went to the parlour one day

Dangling till her swollen nape

“Cut them short”,she said 

Wearing a hooded cape

“But,that’s the finest hair I’ve seen”

“Why you want to cut then and be mean!”

Shrieked the barber.

Cut it shorter,she resorted

“Keep it till your pretty ears”

the barber exclaimed

A pixie is in vogue

But shortening your hair

Was still an idea,lame.

“Make them shorter”,she cried

“!! Don’t make me a perpetrator”

“And make me a sinner”

“By murdering those locks”

Sighed the barber ,shocked.

“Make my hair that short

That it doesn’t be that long enough

Enough to come in the hands

Of the perpetrator

To Get Hold of my hair

And make my locks

The weapon to make my soul bare.”

It is not just the end to the violence

Her voice is now not unheard

The tears in her eyes

Is not the weakness

But the anger within her

Which has made her blood boil

And brought the vapours in her eyes.

Her locks are now cut

She has begin her journey 

To write her own destiny

Without any societal ifs and buts.

#Respect Them

#Love Them 

#But Don’t Ever Take Them Weak Because She’s a Diamond That Can’t Be Broken by Anyone.

Filters can be misleading


Reblogged via Filters can be misleading
My sister-in-law took the black dress off the shelf. “It’s perfect!” she breathed. “Perfect” is what I also thought about it. I had already liked that dress for myself and I wanted it. So I just showed her a few more dresses, stressing that they were superior to the black one she had chosen. She was doubtful but since she trusted me she left the black dress and bought something else. As soon as she was out of sight, I quickly grabbed the black dress and stuffed it in my basket.

I looked at the person sitting in front of me with growing frustration. Why couldn’t he do what I was telling him? He was giving me reason after reason for why he couldn’t do it, a list of his reservations. I didn’t have time to listen to all of that. I knew I was in the right. I just promised him some money and that took care of his reservations. Reservations indeed!

My friend’s child died. I was tired of seeing her crying! I mean it is not end of the world. So I told her to get a grip on herself and stop crying. Didn’t she have other kids to love?

My sister hugged me but I shook her off. She always has to hug and show affection at the most inconvenient of times. Ok so maybe she is nervous before giving her presentation and needs some comfort but can’t she see I have my hands rather full at the moment!

By now you must have a very bad opinion of me. I am unsympathetic, I bribe, I manipulate and I am impatient enough to shrug off a hug. Thankfully the “I” in these cases is figurative. Yet the truth remains that these behaviours are ugly but many of us practice these behaviours on a daily basis. Don’t agree? Let me explain.

A few weeks ago I watched a video on Facebook in which a grown man was pretending to be a four-year-old, while his dad was trying to put him to bed. It was hilarious! But after I finished laughing I starting thinking what if we change the scenario the other way round? What if we start treating adults the way we treat kids? The answer to this bit of question was not pretty at all!

All of the above scenarios are taken from real life but the kid was replaced with an adult. So let’s go back to them but this time with the REAL cast of characters.

Mother was preparing dinner and the baby was playing with his favourite spatula. It had kept him busy and happy while the mum was busy with other stuff but now mum needed that spatula. It was the only one which could reach inside the blender without scratching it. But the baby didn’t want to give it. So she gave the baby another spatula telling her how much better the new one is compared to the old one, it can even make a sound! Confused the baby let go of the first spatula and started playing with the second. Without feeling any guilt over the manipulation the mother went back to cooking!

A mother had to keep an appointment and at the very last moment before leaving the house the toddler pooped. Not only he pooped but he wasn’t willing to change. He had lots of reasons and reservations about not changing at that moment. (Not wanting to go out being one of the reasons.) Frustrated, the mother promised to buy an ice cream if the toddler agreed to change. The kid learned to let go of his reservations, no matter how strongly he believes in them, in face of a treat, a bribe!

A little girl’s favourite toy broke beyond repair. Tired of her crying, her father told her to stop crying this moment.  Hadn’t she other toys to play with? Yet the grief of that child over that broken toy was as enormous and overwhleming for her as the grief of a mother whose child may have died.

The house was full of guests and the hostess was harried trying to keep everything running smooth, making sure the food was ready in time. But her little son was feeling uneasy in front of so many new people. He wanted to hug his mother, to be carried by her, to be comforted! But she didn’t have time for that now. Yet toddlers can feel equally (if not more) anxious and nervous in a house full of guests as an adult facing an auditorium full of people.

The same things which look ugly when done to an adult suddenly look normal when done to children. Why?

We all know the famous hadith where Rasulallah, PBUH, was present in the house of Abdullah bin Aamir, RA. Abdullah was a child at that time and his mother called him to her saying she will give him something. Rasululallah, PBUH, asked her what did she intend to give him? And she replied she intended to give some dates. Rasulallah, PBUH, told her that if she hadn’t given him anything, a lie would have been written for her (in her deeds).

We learn from this hadith the enormity of telling lies. But we miss one of the most crucial lessons of this hadith that children are people too. And we are as much accountable for our interaction with them as we are for our interaction with adults.

This doesn’t mean that we have to give in everything a child says or demands. Saying “NO” in the right places is also our duty as parents. So do so, but mind your words, mind your actions and mind the fact that you are answerable to Allah for every word and every action your direct towards this little person.

Got it published in Hindustan Times.Check out link-

Proudly the conqueror comes

With a thumping sound of drums

And there goes his fame

Making everyone acclaim

That he is the most just

But looking at the sky

With the supreme power residing high 

How insignificant is this dust.

Gracefully the blessed soul comes

Behold his spiritual style

Covering his hidden guile

Poised with his calm grace

Ready to shower his blessing

On the human race

But looking at the sky

With the supreme power residing high 

How insignificant is this dust.

Holding his head high

The dauntless warrior comes

Making the damsels sigh

Everybody welcomed him with rum and plums

He came after a fierce battle

Hordes of people followed him like cattle

Proving his valor

His tales of bravery are in galore

He slashed the throats sitting on the saddle

Looking at the sky

With the supreme power residing high 

How insignificant is this dust.

From ages, this philosophy comes

The supreme is the one

With whom the roll of drums

Making every thing around shun

Looking at the sky

With the supreme power residing high 

How insignificant is this dust.

He bows down, she forgets her frown

When he delves into your soul

Making you lose control

The highest is his will

Without boasting,he remains still

He looks at this world with a deep sigh.

The victor comes with no realize.

Looking at the sky

With the supreme power residing high 

How insignificant is this dust.

From A Lovely Soul💙

I am so thankful @blissfulword for giving his work for my blog..#blessed


I became aware that I noticed. I noticed what was once unoticed.

I know this because it was always there. For it to not have been, is for me, to not be. I realized within my being, I noticed.
More and more, degreess like levels, this game to play is to be, to be unaware is to loose. Awaken, Rise, Liberate, be free to play, and have true fun.

To have fun is to be truly be fully aware of life and all of her glorious mystery. Lack of fun, equals lack of awareness, interm loosing, loosing life.

Before I ever was, I Am, After I was, I remain that in which I Am.
