1. TAKE A GRIP!
  The reason why we get this life? To be close to the One who’s forever close to us. Fair enough, isn’t it? And He who gives us life is free to take it away too when He deems it fit. We rejoice when there’s birth and mourn when there’s death. But could it be any other way? We should mourn when we feel something that could never imaginably have happened, has occurred. But is death .....

2. An Affair called Life
  Life is what happens to a soul when it gets a habitat or an abode to live in — the body. The body could be a human one or a non- human one depending on what the soul deserves. Oh well, and who decides what the soul deserves? Worry not, for it is the kindest of the kind, the most just, the friend and savior of one and all, the omnipotent and the omniscient God.   Yes, ou .....

3. Showers of True Happiness
  God has been described as Absolute Bliss and the sole entity that can provide this bliss to others as well. He lightens up the world and our lives. The mechanism by which physical light works is that it is transmitted from an object to our eyes. Certain special cells in our eyes get activated and we are able to see as a result of this process. Light, therefore, makes the world .....

4. Original does Matter!
  It is customary in Vedic philosophy to sit next to God at least three times every day to sing praises and offer prayers to Him. For years and years, this practice has included chanting of Ved mantras, with knowledge of their meanings. The practice is called Sandhya (in Sanskrit). The word has been derived from the conjunction of two smaller words, sam (pronounced “sum”) and dhy .....

5. Heart full of Prayers!
  More things are wrought by prayers than this world dreams of!   Often we pray but do not feel inclined towards the activity. Sometimes we force ourselves to perform the act for a long while and then feel that nothing good seems to be coming out of it. In this case, it is essential to understand the prerequisites for performing prayers.   First and foremost, it is .....

6. FORBIDDEN REASONS
  Ahh! The Forbidden Fruit! Nothing looks more pleasing. Jewels abound, gold is plenty But in the mind are breezing Thoughts and images Of the forbidden fruit.   No! Close your eyes, it is taboo To leave it alone is astute   But why this hubbub? It is just an object among all others Why the cross, the red mark Separating it from its brothers?   This .....

7. EGO ON THE GO!
  A lot of people in the world these days seem to have mutual problems. Some don’t get along with their partners, others with their friends or colleagues, with their bosses or with their employees, with their children or with relations. But in order to live in this world, socialization is a necessity. However isolated our lifestyle is, there is still always a need to interact wit .....

8. DIFFERENCES GALORE
  I have always believed that all students can learn. Despite their differences! As educators, we need to enable each child to succeed.   The way a child, or any individual for that matter, learns, depends on their genetic make-up, their upbringing, their past experiences and their physiology. The way my brain operates is probably very different from the way yours does be .....

9. … Said the Book (A poem on 'New Age')
  “Nothing’s more splendid for me, a book, than when a child Through her brown eyes peers at me, Holds me tenderly, Smiles and weeps with me – learns good lessons, Sometimes when I reveal a secret, she just sits, stunned! Hugs me close when she sleeps, My soul into her dream seeps!   ‘I wonder what right I have to influence her so, Who put ‘words in my mouth’ that .....

10. Her Musings of Longing
  The load on her sagging back spoke of her saga And became her; the dew on her brow brought forth More determination and décor   Her sigh held trapped desires And her throbbing breath longed To savor the delicious glory, draped in luxury To drink in the entwined merriment   Her blazing eyes lapped up the tall structures – Lavish promise-land on road – gol .....
