Beautiful Songs

This is a lovely song with such amazing lyrics..The song Taron mai sajke from jal bin machli, nritya bin bijli is absolutely amazing. On one hand the poet talks about love and expresses the same idea through a gamut of beautiful thoughts by explaining it in a revolution that earth takes around the sun. .........This song is very near to my heart, hope I can choerograph it someday.........explicitly beautiful song.....

Lyrics of Taron Mein Sajke Apne Suraj Se
taaron mein saj ke, apane sooraj se,
dekho dharatee chalee milane
zanakee paayal mach gayee halachal
anbar saaraa lagaa hilane

hai ghataaon kaa,
do nain mein kaajal
dhoop kaa mukh pe daale sunaharaa saa aanchal
yoo laharayee,
lee angadaee,
lagee jaise dhanak khilane

aag see lapate,
jalatee huyee raahe
jee ko dahalaaye,
bechain toofaan kee aahe
naa daregee,
naa rukegee, dekhe kyaa ho, kahaa dil ne

My shelfari!

Sleeping like a like a dog!

Very cute site! isn't he adorable? This image currently occupies the coveted place on the desktop of my Macintosh at office.......
Reminds me of days when I had all the time and freedom in the world to laze around.
This picture infuses a sense of assurance in me that at the end of day, after work I shall go home and get my much sought after rest (hopefully)

This little lucky bugger gets to sleep for a long time at a stretch! Look how cozily he is all snuggled up.

-He is truly a object of envy especially of a person who has to wake at 5:30 a.m. every morning and go to work! Who else but poor me :(
Wish I could enjoy a prolonged deep , careless and peaceful slumber like him.

'if' by Rudyard Kipling

I came across this poem while browsing on net. I found the poem very interesting with an undercurrent of deep meaning explained in simple words.. Rudyard Kipling is said to have written the poem 'If' with Dr Leander Starr Jameson in mind, who led about five-hundred of his countrymen in a failed raid against the Boers, in southern Africa. The 'Jameson Raid' was later considered a major factor in starting the Boer War (1899-1902)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)
Fabulous poem. Hope you liked it!

I am finally out of my flumoxed state of mind, just keeping calm at the moment. Attempting to practice the virtue of resilence.
Patience and persevarance can overcome mountains, they say.......let me wait and watch if it works wonders for me!
Keeping my fingers and expectations crossed!( Atleast for the momment)

Confessions of a honest Mind!

Yesterday I encountered the greatest failure of my life. I was completely shattered because I didnt get what I had so desperately wanted and for which I had slogged my @## off. I was a complete wreck, I cried, I cursed and I gave up. Miraculously today, my mind is cleansed of all malice . I have forgotten this bitter incident.....I love this feeling...the feeling of beign FREE. FREE from my own negative thoughts.............
