जिंदगी सबसे बड़ी गुरु है।

जिंदगी सबसे बड़ी गुरु है, जीना सिखा देती है।
आँखों से गिरे हर आँसू को पीना सिखा देती है।

जो जाते है गर तारें अगर मायूसियों की गर्दिशों में,
उन्हें रोशनी का नया सूरज दिखा देती है।

आते है बहुत से दो राहें मंजिलों की चाह में,
पर है शुक्रिया तेरा, ए जिंदगी! तू हर बार गिरकर उठना सिखा देती है।

ग़मों की गहराइयों और सुखों की परछाईयों में,
अपनों और परायों की पहचान सिखा देती है।

जिंदगी सबसे बड़ी गुरु है जीना सिखा देती है।
मुश्किलों भरी ज़मीन पर ख्वाइशों के फूल खिला देती है।

औरत: तेरी कहानी

दिल भर सा आता है अगर नज़र डालती हूँ औरतों की जिंदगानी पर।

क्या खूब क़िस्मत बनाई है रब ने उनकी, अक्सर कसी जाती है दूसरों की बनाई कसौटियों पर।

सबको खुश करने के चक्कर में उसकी अरमानों की पोटली कहीं पीछे छूट जाती है।

अलग अलग वज़हों से ही सही, न जाने कितनी बेड़ियों में बाँधी जाती है।

आज भी हम उठ नहीं पाए है, ओह! आपके घर बेटी हुई है,की मानसिकता से।

लड़कों के लिए अलग और लड़कियों के लिए बनाई गयी अलग परिभाषाओं से।

क्यूँ इस पुरुष प्रधान समाज में महिलाओं का वो दर्ज़ा नहीं है?

क्यूँ वो दो दो घर होने के बावजूद किसी एक का भी अभिन्न हिस्सा नहीं है?

क्यूँ उसे परिभाषित किया जाता है अलग अलग उपमाओं में?

क्यूँ वजूद तलाशना पड़ता है अपना उसे अतीत की परछाइयों में?

जहाँ जन्म लिया, ये तो पराया धन है, कहकर विदा कर दिया जाता है।

और दूसरी ओर, ये तो दूसरे घर से आई है, कहकर सच में पराया कर दिया जाता है।

पूरी ज़िंदगी लगाने के बाद भी क्यूँ एक जगह उसकी अपनी नहीं बन पाती है?

कभी पिता तो कभी पति के नाम के साथ जुड़कर रहना ही उसकी तकदीर बन जाती है।

उसे और कुछ नहीं बस सम्मान और अपनापन चाहिए।

कोई न लगाए प्रश्न चिन्ह उसके व्यक्तित्व पर, उसे ये भरोसा चाहिए।

आशा करती है वो कि एक औरत की आवाज दूसरी औरत के द्वारा उठाई जाएगी।

जो उसने झेला है कभी, समय आने पर दूसरी औरत को झेलने से बचाएगी।

दुआएँ

अकेले आए थे, अकेले ही चले जाना है।

कुछ जाएगा साथ नहीं हमारे,

बस मीठे बोल और अच्छे कर्मों को पीछे रह जाना है।

पता नहीं क्यूँ भागते रहते है हम पूरी ज़िंदगी, कुछ चंद टुकड़ों के पीछे।

एक दिन सबको यही इसी मिट्टी में ही मिल जाना है।

मीठी बोली, प्यार और अपनापन धरोहर है इंसानियत की,

कुछ ज्यादा खर्च नहीं होता अगर बाँटे हम दुख दूसरों के भी।

हमारी एक पहल से शायद किसी का दिन बन जाये,

किसी रोते हुए को ख़ुशी और सुकून के दो पल मिल जाए।

यही ज़िंदगी है, एक दूसरे का हाथ पकड़ कर आगे बढ़ चले।

कुछ अपनी कहे, कुछ सुने दूसरों की भी और यूँ ही सफ़र तय करते चले।

पैसों से भी अनमोल है ये दुआएँ,

अगर हो सके तो इनसे भी झोली भरते जाए।

वरना क्या बचता है इस ज़िन्दगी में?

अकेले आये थे,अकेले ही चले जाना है।

Regards and Gratitude!

कोशिशें

अभी तो बस शुरुआत की है, मंजिले कई तय करना बाकी है।

हार और जीत से फर्क पड़ता नहीं मुझे, कोशिशें चलती रहे इतना ही काफ़ी है।

टूटेगा हौंसला नहीं ये चाहे अब जोर जितना भी लगा,

ये भी देखना दिलचस्प है कि दिल और दिमाग की जंग में भारी किसका पलड़ा।

इतना तो इल्म है मुझे भी अपनी जमीं के बारे में कि कहाँ सूखा है और कहाँ पानी है।

जानकर भी अगर अनदेखा करूँ बेज़ा गलतियों को तो ये सबसे बड़ी नादानी है।

दिल और दिमाग का तालमेल बेहद जरुरी है मेरे लिए,

चालाकी से हासिल की गयी खुशियाँ बेमोल और बेमानी है।

धीरे धीरे ही सही पर सही राह की तरफ कदम बढ़ाना है।

जरुरी नहीं की जहाँ भीड़ ज्यादा हो उसी को ही अपनाना है।

कुछ राहों का पता मंजिल को खुद नहीं होता,

तकदीरें सवार देती है उन तस्वीरों को भी जिसमें कभी किसी ने रंग नहीं भरा होता।

“Hindi poetry” (Bahane) Excuses!

https://myaspiringhope.wordpress.com/2019/06/19/bahane/

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।

Generation Gap: How to balance between one generation to another?

Hi!

Welcome back!!!

I am back with a new post named Generation Gap.

Nowadays I am quite busy with my daughter’s school exams, mother in law’s health issues and some other miscellaneous works. That’s the reason I didn’t get the chance to publish any post.

It happens sometimes. According to the priority, some other things take back seat. Anyway, Let’s come to today’s topic, “Generation gap”

What is your definition of the Generation Gap?

I think the difference of opinions, beliefs, values and practices between one generation and another generation is called the generation gap.

The gap of two or three decades between the two generations changes the thought process and practices of the younger ones.

It is true and we have to accept that Change is a continuous and gradual process. We should keep in the mind that differences will come on the basis of the thought process.

Today generation’s main focus on life style’s comfort and ease and secure their future first. On the other hand, another generation (old ones) is more focused on values and rituals. That creates conflict sometimes.

This is my observation and opinion, your thinking might be different.

Though three generations work simultaneously Self, Parents and Grandparents so it is obvious all the three generations will have their opinion, thinking and points to prove their logic.

Then what to do? How can we make a balance?

We need to understand certain points, to understand the whole process.

The points are-

1. Try to bridge the gap by listening, accepting and respecting the views and differences.

2. Try to maintain a better understanding by taking an effort to understand their point of view too.

3. Always keep in the mind that relationships are more valuable than differences. It takes lots of time, efforts and sacrifices to make a relationship stronger and on the other hand, it’s very easy to break within a second for various reasons.

4. Try to think about both the perspective, what will we think and how to react at the age of them. We will definitely get the answer.

5. At least try to fulfil their basic demands what they expected from you, your time, love, care and concern, whenever it is possible, show your concern for them.

6. Parents and grandparents should also try to understand the younger generation’s desires, passion, ambition towards their life.

7. Try to give an individual space to everyone. This is the main beauty of every relationship.

8. Don’t force anybody to live their lives in a certain way. Everybody has certain desires and goals for their life, let them free to live and where they need guidance, don’t hesitate to ask them.

9. Balance and adjustment is the key to solve all the misunderstandings. Some efforts from your side and some efforts from their side will help to make the life’s progressive, peaceful and happening.

These points are applicable to both generations. Sometimes first give and then get the formula works the best.

This is my way of thinking regarding this, what do you think and what is your point of view, please share with me through your comments.

Communication, discussion and then the conclusion is the best way to solve any problems. Be part of making the world happier.

Take care. Be happy and be productive.

Catch you all in the next one.

Regards & Gratitude,

Success: What is your definition?

!!!Success is not about only winning or losing!!!

Success: What is your definition?

In simple words, to achieve the goal which you planned for yourself which makes you feel happy and satisfief is called Success.

We can say it like this also, to accept the failure and come out from it gracefully and again make the mind to work and perform that leftover task, is the real form of success.

Everybody is chasing success desperately and they want this in their life anyhow but what are their criteria to measure success. Is this money, power, position, inner satisfaction or something else?

Everybody might be a different definition of their success.

I personally believe the growth of an individual from starting to till the end or at present where he is standing should be counted as his success.

Here growth of individual covers all the aspects of his life like social, personal, professional and spiritual as well. As the interest of an individual, he can choose his area of work where he wants to get success.

I believe, most of the people set their definition of success according to someone’s professional life only, how they are doing professionally.

Here I think slightly different, In my opinion, balance is very important in every aspect of life otherwise you will get success for a temporary period of time. You can’t pursue in the long run.

Think and tell who is more successful according to you. One who is doing excellent in his profession and the rest of the areas are terribly suffered or one who is good enough in his profession and also makes a good balance in other aspects of his life?

Who will be your choice?

According to me, In the end, the thing matter for me is how many other people are suffering from my decision in this race of success?

You want to win the race alone or want to give your shoulder as help to others. The choice is yours.

One more phenomenon is very common that one who is earning for the family is very successful and on the other hand who is doing 24 hours job without getting any penny is a big zero.

Do you agree?

I am not. Here we need to understand that the person contributes at home, knows his or her responsibilities very well and he or she wants a good balance in life that’s why he or she willingly chooses this for himself or herself. Please don’t give any tags to anyone regarding this.

Everybody is playing its individual role and getting his growth gradually so everybody should respect for this.

Success is not all about what other people are thinking about you. How you feel about your individual growth according to your capacities and capabilities is also counted as your success.

Everybody lives his life but what matters is that how he is living in actually?

Nobody should force to live his life in a certain way. As a human being one should at least get the right how he wants to live his life, it should be only his choice.

If somebody is happy with his messy things, let it be. Don’t judge on the basis of his weakness. It’s ok not to be successful according to other’s balance sheet. If you tried and do not ready to give up on your situations and satisfied with all your efforts and the results, you are also a winner in your own space.

Celebrate this and discover more chances for you. Continue with the process of growth you will surely get your goal.

Feel like a winner, think like a winner, you will get your power booster automatically, don’t put you in any pressure all the time.

Criticism: How to take it!

Hello everyone!!

How are you all doing? Hoping all are doing good.

Today I will share my point of view about the topic “Criticism“. Everybody has to face it at some level of their life.

How one should take it or react it, today I will talk about it.

What is the real mean of the criticism?

How it affects life?

What are the positives or negatives?

We need to understand it at a more deeper level.

What is Criticism?

“Criticism is the expression of finding faults & mistakes as well as the good part of the particulars and then judging them on the basis of their acts.”

True Criticism should be based on the above definition but in actuality is it happen exactly the same?

Think about it and share your experiences regarding this.

Here I feel that the so-called people and relatives some friends and families who have the authority or they take it by default to judge someone else.

They should first introspect themselves on the same basis where they are judging others.

If they have the qualities which they are talking about then they can give their opinion and only if required and if they haven’t then they should work on themselves first rather than commenting on other’s plus and minuses.

Two possibilities

1. Positive Approach- Here one has the pure intention to improve other’s mistakes. This is the thoughtful feedback where he analyses the situation and gives the solution to improve accordingly. That is called Positive approach.

2. Negative Approach – This totally depends on the person’s psychology. How he thinks and make a statement about others?

Is he insecure or jealous of others?

If yes then this is 100% sure he will only focus on the negatives because this is how he approaches the things generally?

This is purely a Negative Approach.

Here this is advisable one should focus on the situations more rather than the person.

How to handle it-

1. I know it is very difficult to listen something wrong and unpleasant about us but it is also a fact in our consciousness we exactly know the truth about ourselves.

If we are wrong and we need to change our behaviour and approach then definitely should go for it.

If we know and understand the hidden truth behind it, why they are doing it then ignoring them is the best way because arguments with such type of people are totally wastage of our time.

2. If you can’t ignore them then respond to them in a respectful manner because they want to provoke and make an issue. Their motto is clear, if we also lose our patience by listening to their nonsense shits then they will catch the chance to be innocent and prove us wrong.

Don’t give that chance to them because they use it as their play card.

See, Criticism can be good in a certain way but only we need to understand the psyche of the person.

Don’t get so personal and emotional due to the criticism because you are the one who knows the best and the worst about you.

Doesn’t matter what people are talking about because there are only a few who appreciate the good work, others are only want to do leg-pulling.

Believe in yourselves and keep doing the good work. This is the life. One will always speak something good or bad about someone else so we can’t help in it.

With these words now I am ending this one, will catch you in the next one. Take care.
