उम्मीद

ना जाने क्यूँ आज सब कुछ धुआँ धुआँ सा लग रहा है।

अश्क दरियां सी और मन सागर सा भरा लग रहा है।

ऐसा नहीं है कि हम जानते नहीं उन्हें,

पर फिर भी न जाने क्यूँ उनके सजदे में ये सिर झुक रहा है?

सोच की गहराइयों पर भी उनका कब्ज़ा है,

ख्याबों की उड़ान पर भी कोई अनदेखा पहरा है।

फिर भी सब जानते हुए भी ये दिल गुस्ताख़ी कर रहा है।

बदल जायेगे वो हर पल ये इबादत कर रहा है।

इसी उम्मीद में कि शायद एक दिन वो समझ जायेगें,

और इस वीराने में भी उम्मीदों के फूल अपनी खुशबू फैलायेगे।

बहानें

ना करने के बहानें ढूंढों तो एक नहीं हज़ार मिल जाएगें।

और अगर करने जाओ तो छोटे छोटे तिनके भी रोड़े अटकायेगे।

तो क्या करे, हार मानकर बैठ जाए?

या झकझोरे अपने विश्वास को और सब भुलाकर आगे बढ़ते जाये।

रोज गिरे, रोज उठे पर मरने ना दें अपने एहसास को।

कर सकते है और हो भी जायेगा बस छोड़े अपने डर और डर से पैदा होने वाले हर अविश्वास को।

फिर यही रास्ता अपनी मंज़िल की राह खुद दिखलाएगा।

और आत्मविश्वास का सूरज हर अँधेरे को चीरता हुआ अपनी ही रोशनी से जगमगाएगा।

Happy Father’s Day!!

पिता पेड़ की छाँव है, जो हर धूप से बचाते है।
कोई भी मुश्किल आये तो राह वो दिखाते है।

उनकी छाया में ही हम फलते और फूलते है,
बिन बोले कैसे जाहिर किया जाता है अपना प्यार,
इसके वो श्रेष्ठ उदाहरण होते है।

अपने हर दुख दर्द को जो खुद में समेट लेते है।
अपने बच्चों को एक सुंदर भविष्य देने के लिए न जाने क्या क्या सहते है।

एक पिता की मन की गहराई जानने के लिए कई बरस लग जाते है।
बात तब समझ में आती है जब वो खुद एक माता पिता का दर्ज़ा पाते है।

पिता पेड़ की छाँव है, जो हर धूप से बचाते है।
कोई भी मुश्किल आये तो राह वो दिखाते है।

ज़िन्दगी का सफ़र

ज़िंदगी का सफ़र यूँ ही रूंठते मनाते हुए गुजर जाएगा।

कुछ साथ रह जाएगा तो कुछ पीछे छूट जाएगा।

हम ढूंढते ही रह जायेगें उन बीते हुए लम्हों को,

लोग आगे बढ़ जायेगें और बस यादों का कारवाँ रह जायेगा।

यही वक़्त सही है गुफ़्तुगू का अपनों से, कुछ कहने का, कुछ सुनने का,

वरना बाद में तो सिर्फ़ सिफ़र का दीदार ही रह जायेगा।

छोटी सी ये ज़िन्दगानी है, पल झपकते ही गुज़र जाएगी।

हम अफ़सोस ही करते रह जायेगे और कई कहानियाँ अतीत में ही दफ़न हो जाएगी।

5000 Views Completed!

Hello Friends!

How are you all? I hope you are doing good.

Today I am here to make an announcement.

5000 views completed on my blog!

I honestly don’t track views regularly.

I opened my blog’s insight today and I came to know that 5000 Views has been crossed.

I thought I should thank you all. And this is the best way to express my gratitude for all the readers.

“हौंसला अगर पक्का हो तो सपनों को भी पंख लग जाते हैं।

कोशिश अगर सच्ची हो तो मुश्किल में भी राह निकल आती है।

बस बढ़ाना हैं, एक एक कदम मंजिल की ओर

और मंजिल खुद फ़ासला कम करती जाती है।

#deepikawrites

I want to shout out for the WordPress community. They supported me in my ups and downs.

A big thanks to all the readers who supported me to grow as a motivational blogger and poet.

I am glad my new experiment through my poetries is liked by many of you.

I am overwhelmed. This is the result of the last 5 months of continuity & hard work.

This is not possible without your support. I am glad I started writing for Hindi readers also through my Hindi poetries.

Give your suggestions and feedbacks in the comment section below.

Regards & Gratitude

Deepika

अधूरे सपने।

रंग वो होते है जो ज़िंदगी को खुशियों से भर दे।

रंग वो होते है जो रोते हुए को हँसने पर मजबूर कर दे।

पर क्या हो जब जीवन के रंग ही बदरंग हो जाए?

और हम बस हाथों में ब्रश लिए इंतज़ार करते रह जाए।

सुना था कहीं, कलाकार मन कभी मरता नहीं है।

फिर उठता है और कोशिश करता है।

आज फिर उसने नयी कोशिश की थी,

हाथों में यादों का पिटारा लिए, ज़िंदगी में रंग भरने निकली थी।

आज वो फिर हिम्मत करके अपने अधूरे सपनों को पूरा करने चली थी।

दायरा सोच का।

काम कोई छोटा या बड़ा नहीं होता, सोच होती है।

जरुरी नहीं सबको वो राह मिले जो मंजिल को जाती है।

क्यों आँकना अपने हुनर को किसी दूसरे से?

जब खुदा ने हर बंदे को अलग पहचान दी है।

सब में कुछ है बेहतर, सबसे अच्छा, सबसे जुदा।

जिसने भी ढूंढ कर तराश लिया, उसके लिए बन जाता है वो एक दुआ।

जो लोग तोलते है दूसरों की ज़िंदगी को एक पैमाने पर,

शायद वो खुद ही भूल जाते है अपने आग़ाज और पिछले अफ़साने को।

Reflection post: My Experience about #Thebookblogtrain

Hello friends,

I am happy to announce that I have successfully completed #Thebookblogtrain season2.

I wrote 2 posts this season. First one is poetry “Books Are Darlings”

https://myaspiringhope.wordpress.com/2019/05/16/thebookblogtrain-books-are-darlings/

And the second one is “Tips and tricks to increase reading in kids”.

https://myaspiringhope.wordpress.com/2019/05/26/thebookblogtrain-tips-and-tricks-to-increase-reading-in-kids/

In Season1, I wrote only one post that is a very detailed review of ” The power of your subconscious mind” Now I feel that I should have more concise while reviewing any book.

This is the lesson which I learnt from the last season’s participation.

https://myaspiringhope.wordpress.com/2019/03/19/book-reviewthe-power-of-your-subconscious-mind-thebookblogtrain/

I learnt so many things from Season 1 & Season2 as well.

TheBookblog train challenge pushed me to write and explore more about books.

They give specific topics related to the book world and you have to select the topic and write on those selected topics.

I selected these two and tried my best to create my own content. I am happy with the outcome. I agree, There is always a possibility for improving better in all the aspects of your writing.

I believe, every single day we grow and learn more as compare to our previous engagements.

“Learning is the continuous process and I feel proud that I am trying my best to make my learning phase more productive and fruitful.”

In this Season also through book recommendation posts and some others, I got some more knowledge about books and I happily added to my TBR list.

I learnt about how can you give variations in your single post by using different ways.

What I feel, We should follow our own essence of writing. That is the thing which appeals me to read and stick with the post. That uniqueness of your writing always maintains that required freshness. That is my personal opinion. I respect other point of views also.

That is my theory, what you feel? Mention in the comment section.

Here I am adding my favourite posts from Season 2. I want to mention that also they are from the same topic which I followed for my post.

1. First one by Noor Anand Chawla

She introduced “Haiku poetry” in her post and I was unaware about that so a new homework was ready for me.

https://nooranandchawla.com/haiku-thebookblogtrain-season-2/

2. This one was posted by Devika Ramadoss

I love the way how she explained her views about the topic in the post.

https://reachthroughwords.com/2019/05/25/tips-and-tricks-to-increase-reading-in-kids-thebookblogtrain/

3.The third one by Sindhu Vinod Narayan

I felt a connection with the post. Beautifully articulated and well expressed.

https://mybabymybooksandi.wordpress.com/2019/05/25/tips-and-tricks-to-increase-reading-on-kids-thebookblogtrain/

I want to thank all the participants who read my posts and make me feel more motivated for my efforts with their awesome reviews.

All are the winners already for their efforts and hard work. Best wishes for the results. May the best one win.

I also want to convey my special thanks to hosts Vidhya and Siddhi & sponsors Penguin India and Red wolf too for organising such a smooth event.

Agree on that note, there is always a possibility to improve and beat the own previous benchmark.

Now I am binding up to this post with my ending note.

“Don’t look for a perfect one always. Make it the best through your efforts.
