Habits die hard....

Habits die hard....~Ayush Jain

Many people in this world make a hell amount of resolutions for the so called "New Year".... And as the year begins, slowly and gradually, those resolutions vanish somewhere without even making a beep.. I wish we had a mechanism through which we could monitor ourselves and rate ourselves on our own parameters constantly.. like a software for websites, or may be search engines... whatever...
May be whenever we are about to break some of our resolution, it will make some awkward beep sound to make us realise our fault... You know, something like that..
If we have a mechanism like that, we will be able to see ourselves outside ourselves, and that is where a lot of difference is created. If a person is able to see himself detached from himself, he can analyse himself well, see as to where he is heading, is this where he really want to go ?? How good is he  managing his life in terms of... whatever parameter one wishes to use.... But, all in all, this kind of analysis will really help us monitor that whenever we think we are contented with our ways of living, with our attitude towards various issues in our life; are we really supposed to have that feeling in our mind ?? Considering, the ultimate goal or aim we intend to achieve...?? Sometimes, in leiu of finding peace we comfort ourselves by taking a break, we think that taking a break from all the issues of our life for a while, we will be able to handle things in a better way when we return; don't know about all; but at least in my case it really doesn't work. In fact it makes things worse for me..Sometimes we just need to understand that whatever we need to handle, can easily be done in the given time frame if we just stay calm and maintain our inner peace... But obviously that doesn't happen....
We rather subconsciously start worrying, and this is the point where problems begin coz our inner peace balance is disturbed.. May be a lot of practice is required in maintaining inner peace, and taking a break may be helpful for people but for me, it really doesn't work....
One solution can be, to pen it down.. Whatever needs to be done should be written down, with the time frame required.. Hmm.. but this idea is better said than done... But at least while doing this we get a lot of self motivation that yes things can be finished off... But it has got its own cons, when we slowly watch that we are behind our schedule, it moves our nerves. In some people's views, this condition may not be good for the other tasks to be completed, but in my point of view, this condition is pretty good if we don't reach saturation.. The reason being that this kind of situation brings out the best in us. As, it is rightly said "When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.." ..
And so, to an extent this helps us.. Because, we are able to push ourselves out of our comfort zones.. The best in us can come out only if we are out of our cozy comfort levels.. So, we may at times feel frustrated, and long for a break, but we ought to be mentally be strong and keep going and display our endurance till the task we thought to complete is not over...
I guess am deviating from the title.. Hehe... Anyways, may be that is why the blog title is The World of Random Thoughts... coz the flow of thoughts has no boundaries..Anyways, lot of useless stuff has already been added, so I better go off now...

A real hero in the hearts of the millions
~ Sneha R.

A short trip of mine. Lets learn a lesson. This Diwali.!!

As a child I really used to enjoy bursting crackers. It was really fun to do so with my family members and especially my cousins. But things have changed profoundly ever since. I now don’t like bursting crackers and in fact advice others to dissuade doing so.

Pollution Caused By The Diwali Crackers
Pollution due to Anaars
 A recent trip of mine, a very short one reinforced my perception. I was kind of bored so thought of going to CMC and pay a visit to the Jain temple there. I had some time at my disposal so I thought I will easily return by dinner time. As I was in a thoughtful temperament so preferred walking till Chittoor bus stand rather than taking an auto. But the little experiences I had on my way, changed my mind and after reaching till Chittoor bus stand I took an auto back to the campus. This is how it goes…

On my way as I was going, I was excited like a child as I could see the multicoloured egressing stars from the rockets in the sky from a distance. They looked magnificent, simply amazing. As I moved forward, the area where small houses are there, people were busy bursting crackers, the common ones which we see like the anaars, zameen chakri, rockets, bombs etc.

But it was very difficult to pass from that area for me because I could not clearly see. I thought my spectacles are not clean because of the rain. But I was completely wrong because even without the spectacles I could not see clearly, so you can imagine how much smoke was there.

But this was not my only observation. I could see smiles on the faces of the small children and on their guardians. They all were happy. They were celebrating Diwali in their own way, though I believe they are economically weak. Still, the people were happy because their children were happy. Earning money is difficult but it is even more difficult to earn smiles on the faces of people you love, isn’t it ?

Anyways, as I moved forward on the left side there was a piece of empty land so I could see the horizon on my left where the land seems to meet the sky. To my surprise the lower half of the sky which was nearer to the land was of such a colour that it was scary to see that, it was thick whitish grey. Imagine the colour of the sky when all the houses in that area were put on fire. The smoke will rise up and would cover much of the portion of the sky; that was exactly what it seemed like.

Imagine the people of that area, breathing in that air which had huge component of smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, manganese and even cadmium in it.

Now I have an important issue here, just to see the smiles on our children’s faces are we really ready to pay the price with their illness. (Other way round, if we are economically strong, does that mean we can waste water, electricity and other resources just because we can pay for them ? Similarly, in this case, does it mean we can pollute our environment recklessly just because we can pay for the colossal amount of crackers?)

Diwali and Asthma
Diwali and Asthma

I hope we all know about the diseases from which small children may suffer from, if this is the kind of air they breathe. Some of such diseases are asthma, emphysema, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and many more. Are those smiles really worth this price ?

We really need to understand this. Smile is an expression of happiness, and happiness is a symbol of purity. Moreover, I presume children are indeed the most pure human beings on this earth. So, is it difficult to make them happy ? Sometimes, unlike us, they don’t even need a reason to be happy. They not only keep themselves happy but also spread happiness in our lives, they have no tensions, no worries. Do you know why ?

Because they have immense faith in their parents, they believe that they are always there for us to protect us, to tell us what is right and what is wrong. So, are we really protecting them by bursting crackers and making our environment so very polluted that Earth is not going to be the same place for their children, our grandchildren and the generations yet to come, to live here. This is a very basic question which we don’t need to answer to anyone, but, to ourselves. If we are doing it for our children’s happiness; think twice, is this the only thing we can do for that. Moreover, it is our responsibility to teach them whether it is right to do so or not. Also, if we are doing this for our own happiness (and not for children), well in this case as well same thing is applicable (because I assume you are of same category ie children and are not yet adult).

Bursting crackers was never supposed to be the synonym to Diwali. Diwali, in fact it is about the return of Lord Rama victorious from the battle which proved that good is always supposed to win over evil; so let us make sure that our home planet Earth does not lose this battle against this evil named “Pollution”, because if this happens, we will be the biggest losers !!

I think it is high time for each of us to understand our responsibility in this battle against pollution because ultimately, this is about our very existence and we can’t afford to lose it !!

Kho jau mai kahi agar,
Aur ho jau duniya se bekhabar,
Samajh lena dosto ho gaya hai mujhko Ishq,
Aur le liya hai maine bahut bada Risk,
Yu to "Life" hai har pal Risk magar,
Soche-samjhe Risk ka alag hi hai asar,
Life me Risk-factor bahut kaam aati hai,
Safalta ki kunji bankar aapko...
Door talak le jaati hai
Door talak le jaati hai...


A Battle To Win [Part 1]

A Battle To Win-Prashant Mishra
Battles begin,
Swords clash,
Empty coffins,
Filled in a flash.

Crimson red,
flows the blood,
Tension prevails,
Eyes shut.

Pass through the head,
The bullets roar,
After the thunder,
The silence grows.

Weapons leave,
Their masters in grave,
Anger wins,
We die as its slaves.

No more we live,
No more fear,
No more we cry ,
No more tears!


 ~Prashant Mishra

A Battle To Win [Part 2]

A Battle To Win-Prashant Mishra
Glorious kingdom,
got submerged in the battle,
Wisdom is dead,
situations are now fatal.

fills our lives,
Dead men are,
sleep deprived.

Gun fire fills the air,
Choking our souls,
Black birds in the sky,
Eat bodies that fall.

Clouds thunder,
Calling our names.
Our soul surrenders,
Rising in shame.

This ends not here,
There's a life that follows.
But it still has to be filled,
The grave, deep and hollow.

No more we live,
No more fear,
No more we cry,
No more tears!


~Prashant Mishra

A Battle To Win [Part 3]

A Battle To Win-Prashant Mishra
(Read the previous parts to have a better understanding)

Our soul is dead,
No feelings inside,
Long ago from this day,
Our conscience had died.

Ego in heart,
Jealousy in mind,
Forgive all the enemies,
We're no more that kind.

"Life is a bitch",
We say this all time,
Thoughts full of revenges,
We've got for no crimes.

The battle is huge,
With the memories of past,
The good ones are good,
Its from the bad ones that last.

But deep into the ground,
We got to bury them all,
Our ego, the jealousy,
And the ones that made us fall.

Time will move on,
Life will keep up the pace,
And someday we'll say,
With a smile on our face,

Battles began,
Swords clashed,
Empty coffins,
Were filled in a flash.

But battles did end,
And noone had died,
The coffins were filled,
With the guilts we had inside.

Let 'tensions' keep on shouting,
And 'worries' keep on trying,
But seeing us winning the battle,
They'll all begin to cry,

"No more we live,
No more they fear,
No more they cry,
Now we've got all tears!"

Have Some Guts

Have Some Guts-Prashant Mishra

If people aren't laughing at your goals, your goals are too small,
Coz each increment in the number of your critics, is an indication that you've heard your inner call.

Find a way out of your house, and you'll get what you need,
You got to do it right now buddy, don't just read!

Escape from the problems, you may do that for a while,
But someday you'll have to face them with a smile.

Coz if the enemy knows, you've come unprepared,
He'll crush you deep down in the Earth, you'll be scared.

A gun on your head with bullets loaded inside, shouldn't make you go nuts,
Coz you're grown up now, have some guts!

A simple sound of thunder, or a sudden flash of light,
Is something that adds thrill to the night.

Knowing every answer might not be the goal of life,
But the curiosity to know them all will make you feel alive.

So a gun on your head with bullets loaded inside, shouldn't make you go nuts,
Grow up man, face them all, have some guts!

trouble-Prashant Mishra
I travel on the breaking path..
I try to make a new start..
I wander like an aimless owl..
I know its time to pay for fouls..

I wish I get what I had once..
I wish I'm done with guilt weighing tons..
I cut all threads and break my heart..
I try to make a new start..

Let all these pains, strengthen my soul..
May be its time to fill the hole..
Let all my strengths, stop being weak..
And this time, let the troubles freak..

~Prashant Mishra

Dreams & Visions

Dreams & Visions-Prashant Mishra-Renova
They say, "Cowards have dreams, great men visions",
When brave men speak, everyone listens.

Tonight you have dreams, and you say you're strong,
May be you're right, those who said the quote are wrong.

But that is all a phrase, some follow, some refrain,
If you've doubt, say it, don't let it remain.

Inside your brave heart, that has grown in lot of cream,
Or may be you've visions, not exactly dreams.

Well, whatever they are, don't let them decide your fate,
Row out to meet your ship, inside the house don't wait.

Coz there's a lot to find, a lot to know about,
The seeds of success need action, for them to sprout.

Mera Dil ( My Heart )

Mera Dil ( My Heart )

Bada natkhat hai ye dil na jaane kya kya sochta rehta hai,
kabhi bada khush toh kabhi zara sa dukhi rehta hai..

Karvata hai mujhse ye na jaane kaise kaise karnaame,
jinka uddeshya ham bhi na jaane aur tum bhi naa jaane..

Kabhi toh pyar bhare ek hi shabd se harshit ho jaata hai,
toh kabhi shabdon ki uljhan mein hi ulaj kar hatash ho jata hai..

Khush hota hai jab ye toh har baat mein haasya khoj leta hai,
par jab hota hai ye dukhi toh uss haasya mein bhi apna dard khoj leta hai...

Kabhi toh deewano ki tarah kisi khaas ko chahne lagta hai,
samay ke saath vahi khaas iss dil ko bhane fir lagta hai..

Na jaane kitni yaadein sanjoye rehta hai ye apne andar,
jaise andar bhara hua ho pyaar ka samundar...

Zindagi ki iss kashmakash mein bass iss baat ka khayal rakhna,
chori na ho jaye kahi issey zara sambhal kar rakhna..


Chahat Ka Falsafa

Chahat Ka Falsafa- Ankit
Apni chahat ka falsafa unhe sunayen bhi toh kaise,
ab toh itna dur hai wo hamse pass jaye bhi toh kaise..

Meri dil mein unki jagah koi aur lega bhi toh kaise,
ye dil toh nadaan hai kisi aur ko pyaar dega bhi toh kaise..

Unke praharon se aahat hokar ab dukhde sunayen bhi toh kaise,
khabhi khush bhi ho jayen jo toh gungunayen bhi kaise..

Dono pahiyon ke bina ye jeevan rupi rath bolo chal payega kaise,
itna kaccha bhi nahi tha hamara rishta bolo tut payega kaise..

Mein toh tera hi saaya hun mujhse dur jaoge kaise,
tere dil ke kisi kone mein toh mein zarur hun;mujhe bhul paoge kaise..

Apni chahat ka falsafa unhe sunayen bhi toh kaise,
ab toh itna dur hai wo hamse pass jaye bhi toh kaise..


Feeling sad sad sad..

Feeling sad sad sad.. Ayush Jain
What to do when things are just not going your way. .  Everything you do, goes wrong. . Whatever you try fix up goes messed up.. However hard you try and work on something, ultimately, the result is absolute frustration, kind of a failure... Whom should you blame when you think that its only you coz of whom all this mess is taking place... Everything goes negative and you just can't see any hope of improvement.. Whatever you expect, things go absolutely go the other way round.. In such frame of mind, we think its better not to expect anything even from ourselves, coz every damn thing you try goes wrong wrong wrong !!!... Need a lot of patience, peace and may be quite other things I can't even think of at this point of time..

Yeah.. I guess each one of us goes through this phase many times in life when not even a single ray of hope appears... . Well, I think this is the best time of life coz He wants us to learn some very crucial lessons of life and is somehow saving us from situations which can be worst than ones right now.. So, that may be the reason for this "phase". . We learn a lot during this time, we get to know our true friends, true buddies, and also the true faces of many people are revealed... But these things don't matter a lot in life.. What truly matters is that you get more matured, more experienced and of course you will be handle yourself better in a similar situation in future..  So, may be we just need to be patient and believe in ourselves that inspite of everything going wrong I can rise up... again ... and conquer. Am actually privileged coz the winner did not have to go through all this and he missed a lot of opportunities underneath failure which I could access coz of being a "failure"..... Or may be he did go through all this.. that is why he is the winner now, and not me... Ahh, this is indeed a good sign, if I capitalize upon the opportunities underneath "failure", I can be the next "winner".. Wow, thats great, I had to learn some important things which I need to be a winner and that is why I am not a "winner" but a "failure"....  Oh great, now I got it, "failure" is a state of mind, if you accept it as an opportunity (or opportunities) it is a phase before failure, as they say "If you have never failed, you've never lived..."... And if  we don't see the positives of failure, well, this is an alarming bell, coz another failure awaits you, and yet another failure and it goes on and on and on, till we learn to see the optimism in it, only then we get the hint that yes failure is the one just before success... As they say... "Success is just one more try..."

Hmm.. now am feeling great... no more feeling sad sad sad... Because now I know what to do...
I don't understand why don't I come to know what is going in my mind, until I blur it out here and there... somewhere...

With this note, I sign off... Have a good day, whoever reads this stuff, hehe...

प्रेरणा (Inspiration)

प्रेरणा (Inspiration)

जब मंजिले नज़र आये और रास्ता न मिल पाए
रख हिम्मत मेरे यार, आओ एक पथ पर चलते ही जाए

जब रोशिनी दिखे कही दूर पर किरण न पहुच पाए
रख होसला ज़रा, चल एक नया दीप जलाए

जब रास्ते पर कुछ लोग तेरे लिए काँटा बन जाए
रख भरोसा खुदपर, देखना कही कदम ना डगमगाए

जब कड़ी धुप में हालात भी तेरा खून खौलाए
रख इतनी ढंडक अपने दिल  में कि इन्द्र भी खुद बरसाए

जब दुनिया में, तेरे आलोचकों की संख्या बढ़ जाए
रख संयम इतना कि उनको भी तू माफ़ कर पाए

जब अपने हो जाये पराए और दूरियाँ बढती जाए
रख उम्मीद हमेशा, देख दिल टूट ना पाए

जब जब  इन सारी बातों से तेरा दिल घबराये
भूल उन पलो, उन किस्सों को जो तुने थे सजाये

होकर मगन अपने धुन में याद रख सदा
राही का तो काम हैं चलता जाए, चलता जाए ||
~Kumar Utkarsh



दिल को बोला संभल जा ज़रा
दिल न माना फिर मेरी बात
एक बार फिर भरोसा कर के
पहुंचा ह्रदय पे गहरा आघात

ये क्या हैं विडंबना, क्या हैं बात
क्यों बहक गए हैं आज फिर से जज़्बात
याद नहीं क्या उनको वो दिन
जब खाया था एक विश्वासघात

सुना हैं बाखूब किसी शायर से
दिल संभल जा ज़रा फिर बहक रहा है तू
मैं कहता लौट कर वापिस मत आना मेरे पास
मैं खुद नहीं सोच पाउँगा की मैं क्या बोलू

खुदा के बन्दे पर नीमत हैं उसकी
बच निकले थे जैसे तुम पिछली बार
आखिरी बार कह रहा हू संभल जा
टूट न जाए कही दिल के वो तार,
और बिखर जाये ज़िन्दगी की झंकार......!!!

~Kumar Utkarsh

गर्दिश में तारे मेंरे

गर्दिश में तारे मेंरे-Kumar Utkarsh

गर्दिश में तारे मेंरे  भले हो मगर
साथ न छोड़ देना तुम कभी मुह मोड़कर
वादा हैं जन्नत की सैर कराऊंगा
ख़ुशी और प्यार से तेरा हर लम्हा सजाऊंगा

चाँद के पार ना सही समुन्दर की लहरें दिखाऊंगा
सपनो का महल न बन सका तो रेत पर किला बनाऊंगा
तू अगर साथ रही हर दम, हर वक़्त, हर मोड़ पर
तो इन्शालाह एक दिन तारे भी तोड़ लाऊंगा

गर आज दे न सकू तुझे चंद फूल वो गुलाब के
ये न सोच लेना की तुझे भूल मैं भाग जाऊंगा
तिनके तिनके से जिस तरह बनता हैं एक घरोंदा
एक एक ईट उस तरह अपना घर सजाऊंगा

गर रूठ जाये भी कभी तू तो तेरे तकिये के किनारे
अपना सर रख कर मैं शायद अश्रु भी बहाऊंगा
पर कर यकीन मुझपर और याद रखना सदा
ख़ुशी और प्यार  से तेरा हर लम्हा सजाऊंगा....

घुटन (Suffocation)

घुटन (Suffocation)

ज़िन्दगी  मेरी  अब  हर  पल  खुद  ही  जिए  जा  रही  हैं .....
मेरी  क्या  हुकूमत  उसपे  दुनिए भी  मज़े  लिए  जा  रही  हैं .....
ना  मौत  आ  रही  हैं , ना  जान  जा  रही  हैं .....
कमबख्त  ज़ंजीरो  से  मुझे  सीए  जा  रही  हैं ......

सीने में आज ना जाने मची कैसी ये खलबली?

Kumar Utkarsh-सीने में आज ना जाने मची कैसी ये खलबली?

सीने में आज ना जाने
मची कैसी ये खलबली हैं
आग सी हैं भड़क रही
दिल में मेरे जल रही हैं

दिख रहा हैं वो किनारा
हर पल अब तक जो धूमिल था
क्या इस बार ज़मीन मिलेगी
ख्याल हर सोच में शामिल था

डर हैं कही डगमगा ना जाऊ
यह सुन्दर स्वप्न न टूट जाए कही
कुछ एक को हैं खबर किस तरह हूँ बढ़ा
हैं भरता जिस तरह बूँद बूँद घड़ा

बस अब येही आरज़ू है दिल की
ऊपर वाले सदा देना दुआ
अगर मेहनत कर के भी हार गया तो गम नहीं
समझ लूँगा खेल रहा था ज़िन्दगी से जुआ ॥
----- अर्ष

नींद (Sleep)

तडपाती , तरसाती  ज़िन्दगी , यहाँ  सिर्फ  और  सिर्फ  हैं  खोना .......
जब  थक  जाओ  रोते  चिल्लाते , आँख  बंद  कर  चैन  से  सोना ......
क्या  पता  फिर  कब  मिलेगी  ये  नींद , अपना  तो  किस्मत  भी  हैं  बौना ....
जब  परेशान  हो  जाओ  ज़िन्दगी  से  ....... उठना  मत  ऐसे  सोना .......!!!!

यादें क्यूँ याद आती हैं?

यादें क्यूँ याद आती हैं?

यादें क्यूँ याद आती हैं,
साथ बिताये लम्हों की कसक आती जाती है,
तेरे पास न होने की कसक आती जाती है,
अकेला हूँ-तनहा हूँ, सोच ये मेरी आती जाती है,
पर याद तेरी जा के फिर क्यूँ चली आती है|

याद आता है मेरा वो तुझको यूँ पलट के देखना,
आते देख तुझको पलकें नीची कर लेना,
घंटों तुमसे बात करने को नए बहाने ढूँढना,
तेरी एक झलक पाने को घंटों गली के मोड़ पे खड़े रहना,
फिर भी तेरा मुझको न देखना,

नहीं हो पास मेरे तुम तो कोई गम नहीं,
तुम्हारे होने का एहसास तो है,
ख़्वाबों की मेरी दुनिया में, तू मेरे पास तो है,
पा लूँगा तुझे एक दिन, दिल को आज भी आस है,
ऊपर वाले की रहमतों पे मेरा आज भी विश्वास है,

तभी शायद यादें याद आती हैं,और जा के फिर चली आती हैं..............
