What a Bird Thought

I lived first in a little house,

And lived there very well ;

The world to me was small and round

And made of pale-blue shell.

I lived next in a little nest,

Nor needed any other ;

I thought the world was made of straw,

And covered by my mother.

One day I fluttered from the nest,

To see what I could find.

I said, “The word is made of leaves;

I have been very blind.”

At last I flew beyond the tree,

And saw the sky so blue;

Now, how the world is really made

I cannot tell – can you?

The road less travelled

Robert Frost is my favorite poet. Although I love many of his poems, my favorite is “The Road Not Taken.” I use its lesson almost daily.

The Road Not Taken

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 onto 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—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

And that has made all the difference.

Divine Love

The greatest fortune in human life is to be able to say, “I want nothing and I am here for you.”

Three kinds of love

There are three kinds of Love.
1. The Love that comes out of Charm
2. That which comes out of comfort, and
3. Divine Love

Do you see what I am saying?
The love that comes out of charm does not last long. It comes out of unfamiliarity or out of attraction. In this, you lose the attraction fast, and boredom sets in, like most love marriages. This love may diminish and bring along with it fear, uncertainty, insecurity, and sadness.

The Love that comes out of comfort and familiarity grows. But this Love has no thrill, no enthusiasm, joy, or fire to it.
For example, you are more comfortable with an old friend who is a familiar person, rather than with a new person.

Divine Love supersedes both the above. Divine Love has ever newness. The closer you go, there is more charm and depth.
Divine Love has comfort, enthusiasm, and familiarity. There is never boredom, and it keeps everyone on their toes.

Worldly love can be like an ocean, yet an ocean has a bottom. But Divine Love is like the sky which is limitless, infinite. From the bottom of the Ocean, soar into the vast sky.

Reference: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Desire set ablaze!

Buddha said that desire is the cause of all misery. If your desire does not get fulfilled, it leads to frustration and causes misery. Even if it does get fulfilled, it leaves you empty.

Vashishtha said that desire is the cause of pleasure. You get pleasure from an object or a person only when you desire them. When you do not desire an object, you do not get pleasure from it. For example, when a person is hot and thirsty, a sip of cold water gives him pleasure; but not if he is not thirsty. Whatever gives you pleasure binds you and bondage is misery.

I tried experimenting with both and here I arrive..

When you desire for truth, all other desires drop off. Very often you always desire for something that is not there. But, truth is always there! Desire for truth removes all other desires and it itself dissolves. And what remains is complete bliss.

Knowing the truth accurately, I stand exactly as I am!

While contemplating the Inconceivable, it is only thoughts that we contemplate. Therefore, abandoning that state of mind, I stand exactly as I am!

One who acts like this is truly contented. One whose nature is like this is truly contented.

The Book (Poem)

Dated: 3rd Feb 2017

If you are the person who has your own dreams,

And did not lose the way to your calling because of others.

If you don’t give up, in the fields of negative screams,

Rather keep playing politely as firm as Krishna’s feather.

One day I might write a book on You.

If you don’t copy others’ skills,

But rather strive to create the magic of your own.

If your I can is more stronger than your I will,

And you explore, explore and explore to get the secret known.

One day I might write a book on You.

If you never ever, ever fall in the trap of Self doubt,

And never shake your hands with the liar called fear.

If you carefully put out the bugs without a shout.

And push in all the love, energy and peace like a doe’s cheer,

One day I might write a book on You.

If one day you find what you were looking outside and around,

Inside the soul of you, magic you never lost, it’s there fresh and new.

If you rise up high still putting your fears on ground,

And sticking the universal truth and love the soul of You.

I will definitely write a book on You.

I cried at the end of the story!

An amazing piece of art, beautifully crafted. J Alchem has the potential to be India’s next bestselling author.

The story is about a postman named Aron who sets out to deliver 9 undelivered letters after 20 years and the mysterious stories he come across while delivering them are going to change his life.

Who are the receptions of the letter?
Do these letters still hold value?

Each stories associated with the letters touched me deeply and made an impact on my soul They strike deep inside the Heart and bring out the flood of emotions. They leave a huge impact as they are stuffed with wisdom in the most interesting and catchy way.

The writer of the book successfully delivers life wisdom in the most interesting way without a hint of boredom, in a way youngsters would enjoy reading.

A delightful story with 3 more back stories in it. The flow is very good, the language is simple and lucid yet effective! Story plot is also good.

It’s a short 1-2 hours quality reading. It keep the reader engaged till the end of the story as the takes the reader towards a new mystery at regular phases, you don’t feel like leaving it incomplete. I would love to read more such amazing stories from the author.

I recommend this book to the young generation who are waiting for a perfect chance or opportunities to do certain things, to convey what is there in their hearts and fall in love with the art of letter writing.

Inside the Heart of Hope (Book Review)

Rishabh Puri is an Indian business investor, entrepreneur, author and the executive director of Global Sterling Products Limited.

Book: Inside the Heart of Hope.

Author: Rishabh Puri

My Ratings: 3.5/5

We’re all a little broken and that’s okay!

A must read book if you are going through adversities. This book inspired me and made me wonder if sky is the limit.

The story revolves around the main character, Rick. Rick has a medical problem due to which his perception of life is entirely different. He tries to turns his trials into triumphs and goes on learning rather than regretting from all the bad experiences in his life.

Facing all the childhood problems, break up with girlfriend, visits to the hospitals make Rick more and more wise and he keeps growing when he applies what he has learned. He learns to deal with problems. Accidently, love happens and success follows.

The author pours his heart out into the story and tries to show the audience all the good and bad conditions as they are in the best way possible. People going through the same problem can relate to the story and can learn to value the importance of hope.

The author has beautifully narrated the situation and has used poetic language where required to make a deep impact on the readers heart. Ideas keep developing.

My favourite part is the one where Rick goes through a break up, his discription of all his emotions and thoughts and the ways he deals with it. Everyone who went through a break up can relate with it.

The ending could have been much better if it had some twists and turns, otherwise the story becomes predictable.


It’s a one time read and people going through medical or family problems and break ups should definitely read it.

Never give up and never lose hope, give your 100% till the end.
