Your Love Is My Means To Live
As a drowning man catches at a straw,
Your love for me though,
Is my ultimate means to breathe, to live,
A force like the west wind that makes me strive.
A person may stay alive with no water,
No food whatsoever,
For a few days or so,
But I can’t survive without seeing you.
If you ever stop loving me,
My soul shall depart for eternity.
If love is a country then the lovers its citizens.
Nature's grudge is beyond tolerance.
Reality is rather impolite and alive with farce!
Love cannot truly be defined.
Love is life, the unseen spirit.
It is love that binds us all with one heart.
Love was, is and will love be even if different is the dawn.
The axe of luminosity cuts the darkness.
The torchbearers like the saints pave ways.
Success is feeling proud of the magnificent works.
'When the mute world speaks... ‘HELP' is the only thing that humanity seeks.'
'If love is foolishness then let me be a fool.'
The thoughts and feelings like a train have stream.
Separation like death does appear with a pointed spike.
'In this post-postmodern world, most people have two faces; some even have THREE! '
'A ‘divine idea' appears instantly and suddenly in the brain when we do not even think about it at all but an ‘earthly or intentional idea' comes when we think about it willingly! '
'Don't just read for the sake of reading, read microscopically! '
'Another proof of God's existence is the ‘clean rain'! He takes care of His creations and does not want them to get wet in the dirty or unhygienic rain! If God did not exist, then there would be both clean and dirty rain! '
'Don't go after the beautiful girls; look madly for success. If you become successful, then the beautiful girls will run after you! '
''Money' and 'success' are two different things as 'fame' and 'success' are! '
'If you run after money, you may not be successful but if you run after success, then money will follow you automatically! '
'The greatest irony is that you believe what is ‘not' but you do not believe what ‘is'! '
'All types of darkness are not necessarily bad. A seed needs darkness around to grow; human beings and animals sleep at night that represents the absence of light; a baby grows inside the mother's womb amid darkness; the shadow of the tree that makes the tired and thirsty passers by feel at ease is also dark! However, the darkness of the human heart is certainly evil! '
'When someone becomes famous, then criticism follows him like a shadow! '
''Selfie' is a kind of positive and momentary 'narcissism'! "
The world is a jail, Within a jail, bigger!
'You can never be great by taking selfies with the celebrities! If you really want to be great, then do something GREAT! '
Love and respect they give, In my creation I live!
'Literature is like a second life, Literature is like a beautiful wife! '
'Shakespeare merrily breathes through his work, As the brightest star in the sky, he has made his mark! '
'Love and respect they give! In my creation I live.'
'Human life begins by crying! Once a baby is born, it cries out. Maybe it cries in joy! So, the simple equation goes- we smile when we feel happy and we cry when we feel sad. As happiness and sadness are connected together like the body and the soul, we cannot remove sorrow or suffering from the human life forever. As long as life is present, gladness and unhappiness will ever be there. They will keep coming in one form or another. It is just ironical that we want to be happy forever and never want to cry. Even trying to remove sadness entirely from life is like being utterly selfish and going against the natural laws! So, the beauty of life is to accept both pleasure and misery gracefully. Hence, we should never forget that we did not smile first but cried when we were born! '
'As the soul does not have a brain, it cannot work according to its own wish. Obviously, it will not be proper to say that the soul will enter another body after the death of a person. Hence, the concept of ‘rebirth' or ‘reincarnation' seems doubtful! '
'At the varsity level, the classes should start at 9: 00 a.m. or later but not at 8: 30 a.m. because most of the students cannot attend the class so early and they miss the attendance and the lecture also! '
Early to bed and early to rise may make a person 'healthy' but it may not make him ‘wealthy' and ‘wise'! If anyone really wants to be wealthy and wise, he must read books and work intelligently!
Platonic or Divine Love: The boy is so handsome! God has created him so beautifully! Vulgar or Earthly Love: The girl is so hot! I wish I could kiss her!
As humans dominate the world, then logically someone dominates the entire universe and that ‘someone' is God!
'Humans want peace, not war. But, sometimes war is needed to establish peace! '
If you want to be a good actor or director, firstly see life, secondly see films and thirdly read books!
Science can't prove everything! Say, a scientist saw a fish splashing in the pond. On the next day he shared it with someone. But, the listener wanted proof. How would the scientist prove that he was speaking the truth?
Sometimes, the indefinite article 'an' seems unnecessary to me. We can use 'a' instead of 'an'. It will not create a huge problem if we write or say 'a ant', not 'an ant'!
Do not FALL in love, RISE in love!
Nothing is meaningless on earth. God has even made the grass a food for some animals. He has created the cows, goats etc. in such physical shapes [heads downward, near the soil] so that they can survive by eating grass easily!
The poets and writers are born stylists!
Madness is like being primitive once again and going back to the ancient era when there was no language, no clothes to wear, no ready-made food to eat, no cozy shelter to take rest in and no future to plan about. Only the ‘present' was present with a struggle to survive. But, the only difference between a ‘primitive man' and a ‘mad man' is that the former had a ‘reasonable' mind with some unreasonable traits and the latter has an ‘unreasonable' mind with many unreasonable and possibly some reasonable traits!
‘Civilization' is just a word! There is a touch of indirect ‘racism' in it. It unjustly means that the primitive people were ‘uncivilized', ‘bad', ‘brutal', ‘barbaric' etc. Being primitive was as civilized as being modern is! The ancient ‘time' was THE civilization-moment for the people then as the present time is for us now! As we should not hate other cultures, similarly we should not hate the ancient civilization. Most importantly, we would never exist if those so-called primitive people were not here on earth!
When society does something wrong and extremely immoral, ironically it is not called ‘madness'. For example, ‘sati burning' and ‘forced conversion into another religion' etc. Sometimes, a ‘mad' or ‘unreasonable' society tries to present itself as ‘reasonable' by unfairly and selfishly defining ‘madness' according to its own wish and for its own interest!
The English letter ‘O' is similar to zero (0) in appearance. Iago's [I am Ego = ‘I' ‘a'm e‘go'] name starts with an egoistic ‘I' and ends with an ‘O' or zero. His ‘ego' and envy lead him towards nothingness or zero! On the other hand, Othello's name both starts and ends with ‘O'. It may be interpreted as- Othello has started his career from a ‘zero', becomes successful, Iago's deception makes him jealous or mad and he ultimately becomes a ‘zero' by killing Desdemona and himself. However, Othello must not be called a ‘murderer' because Iago has used Othello as a weapon to murder Desdemona and also led Othello towards death!
God has created the trees as the sources of food and shelter for others. He has so sensibly not given the trees any weapons like horns, pointed teeth or intelligence to protect themselves. Say, if we went to pluck a mango and if the tree attacked us, then it would be difficult for us to survive! God has not given horns to a lion because it already has a weapon to protect himself- razor-sharp teeth. God has not given the humans horns or sharp teeth but more valuable gift- intelligence!
Love he hates, hatred he loves! Iago, the Mephistopheles!
