That Little Boy November 27, 2010

Every day in the evening when I am on my way to home after office, I see a boy of 9-10 years age selling some savories and snacks and don’t know why he always gains my attention. I confess of having some kind of soft feeling for little kids selling stuff to make a living for their parents. These underprivileged kids have to compromise with education, toys, good clothes etc. which other kids are blessed with.

I come across this little boy see daily in the evening at the metro station, I board a metro from. Carrying a bag full of snacks packets on his small yet strong shoulders he stands there on the gate of the station, sometimes busy in talking with other kids or shopkeepers. Selling each packet for just Rs 10., the boy calls everyone in a try to sell each and every packet. ‘Das Ka’ (for Rs.10) is the word he utters usually.

Sometimes I just feel like buying the whole bag from him and let him go home and enjoy what he wants. I feel like why these poor kids are not blessed with all the comforts of this world. A few days back, I bought a packet from him for Rs 12 as he said that packet prices have now raised to Rs. 12 per packet. My heart and mind didn’t allow me to bargain with him as they said that at least this child is not begging and is doing some work to earn money. And to appreciate those savories were also delicious. May be they tasted so because my heart had already made a sweet space for the boy and the savories he sell.

We see lots of kids begging in and around trains, stations, temples and malls fighting with life to earn a single buck. Most of them, we know, are thrown away by their parents to beg due to poor living conditions. Less sources, no income, many children, addiction to liquor etc. are the main reasons these kids are forced to beg before others.

Well I know that I can not do much to improve their lives rather than just giving them a space on my blog by writing this post.

 

My Visit To IITF 2010 November 25, 2010

One of the buzz around Delhi these days is the IITF 2010. Held every year at Pragati Maidaan New Delhi, the fair offers a chance to domestic as well as international businesses to display their products and services with a particular theme. This year’s theme is ‘Clean and Energy Efficient Technology Products’.

So got a chance to visit the fair last week when hubby got passes from one of his colleagues. It was a exciting as well as disappointing experience. At starting the whole enjoyment was ruined by unseasonal rainfall. Where some of the state pavilions had nothing to display, others had much to show. Visited Delhi, Haryana, J&K, Punjab, Gujarat, Rajasthan, U.P., A.P. and International partners pavilions. Most of the pavilions had same clothes, jewelery and household items. Bought some household things, floor mat from Rajasthan, vase, artificial flowers and a hand bag from Thailand and a bed sheet from Pakistan. Pakistani stalls were flooded with beautiful hand embroidered bed sheets, bed covers, dupattas, ladies suits and men’s wear. International player’s pavilions had more to offer as compared to domestic ones which was also the reason behind more crowd there.

During our schooldays there was a charm for visiting Trade fair every year and we had one day school trips to trade fair also but nowadays the fair is loosing its appeal. May be its due to a difference in thinking being a school kid and a grown up adult.

Remembering M.J. August 29, 2009

Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

 

It is the King Of Pop Michael Jackson’s Birthday today. Had he been alive today, he would have turned 51 years old. 

M.J was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana as the seventh child of Katherine Esther Scruse(Mother) and Joseph Walter “Joe” Jackson(Father). During his childhood days M.J. suffered from child abuse and loneliness which he revealed on some of the popular T.V. shows. M.J. showed his first sign of a hidden artist during a Christmas recital in kindergarten, after which he never look back and began performing backup vocals and dancing. It was the beginning of ‘The Rising of A Star

His bestseller albums include Off The Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), Bad (1987) , Dangerous (1991) and History (1995) for which he got many certifications and awards. He bagged 13 Grammy Awards and twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His most loved songs ‘Billie Jean’, ‘Beat It’ and ‘Thriller’ made him the first African American artist to become an international celebrity.

Despite of various controversies, M.J’s fans didn’t stop listening to his songs, dancing on his beats and imitating his style with his ‘Moonwalk‘.

Though I am not a big fan of M.J.,yet i thought of paying a tribute to the King of Pop on his birthday as he was a man who despite of facing many ups and downs in his life, has cemented a place in our hearts forever.

WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY KRISHNA JANMASHTAMI…

May Shree Krishna shower all his blessings on us and enlighten our body, mind and soul with the celestial sermon of Bhagwat Geeta.

Whatever happened, it happened for good. Whatever is happening, is happening for good. Whatever that will happen, it will be for good. What have you lost for which you cry? What did you bring with you, which you have lost? What did you produce, …which has destroyed? You did not bring anything when you were born. Whatever you have, you have received from Him. Whatever you will give, you will give to Him

 

Let’s Welcome the Rain! July 2, 2009

How beautiful is the rain!

After the dust and heat,

In the broad and fiery street,

In the narrow lane,

How beautiful is the rain!

How it clatters along the roofs,

Like the tramp of hoofs!

How it gushes and struggles out

From the throat of the overflowing spout!

Across the window pane

It pours and pours;

And swift and wide,

With a muddy tide,

Like a river down the gutter roars

The rain, the welcome rain!

(Henry W. Longfellow)

 

 

Finally the lovely season of enjoying beautiful rain showers, cool breeze, hot tea and fritters, greenery everywhere, has approached. After a long wait during those hot and fiery days under the scorching sun rays and rising mercury, finally showers have started pouring over the earth making all of us happy and relaxed.

So, Folks, just come out of your homes to enjoy this rainy season.

” Life is not about waiting for storm to pass, it’s all about to learning to dance in the rain”
