To the Fishes

I am looking at a calm stream.
The water looks crystal clear – Trust me, I can see the bed rocks…
I know that the depth of the stream is not more than my legs’ height.
Curious to see what’s happening in the water,
I stepped into the stream…
The cold water sent brisk vibes to my sleepy brain in an instant.
I took one step at a time…
The only hindrance is the bright sunlight.
Sun has decided to make my life tough today though.
However, nature always finds a way.
I felt the tingling of a fish right on my toe…
I pulled my leg off that tiny creature in the next moment.
What would have the fish thought?
Maybe he would have thought that someone is intruding his habitat – or
Maybe he would have thought that I am his friend and I am visiting him…
Either way – I am not in the mood to keep on asking questions and finding answers…
Not intending to disturb my tiny little marine friend,
I stepped back to the shore…
There is something for all of us to learn from nature…
I think I’ve learnt my lesson for the day!

Nowhere

Walking through darkness,
My eyes knew no path…
Still, my legs decided to keep walking.
I can definitely tell that my legs does not know where it is taking me.
My instinct keeps placing a million questions to my head with zero hesitation…
Where am I?
In a jungle with wild animals – or
Crossing a road with no street lights – or
Treading a cold desert at midnight – or
Nowhere…
Wish someone switched on the light,
And wakes me up from my sleep!

Be the Miracle

Miracles are awesome…They always are…
Every soul longs for one thing or the other…
Sometimes Big…Sometimes Small…
However, the possibilities of a miracle happening to you is always narrow…
Be grounded in Hope…
Hope requires endless Patience…
And Patience is a million-dollar virtue…
There is always a possibility of an awesome miracle happening to you…
You try to unravel the mysteries of our universe –
But, the mystery is beyond human understanding…
The Sun goes down in the evening…
Make sure you see the Moon…
Rain Clouds pour rain in all places…
The Rivers fall from mountains and rush to the ocean…
The Thunder claps and vanishes…
The Rainbow gives sheer joy…
The peacock dances with no worries…
You always expect a miracle to happen…
Miracles may happen or not…
But, never forget the fact that ‘You are a Miracle’…
BE THE MIRACLE!

Sunshine

My watch shows 5.45 AM.
I can barely hear a violent sound.
Harmony fills the air.
I am standing on the seashore…
Literature has described the breaking of dawn in a million ways,
I could remember nothing.
All I could hear is the sound of waves hitting the shore.
A fisherman gets ready to start their day.
An elderly couple starts their morning walk.
A tea master starts to prepare tea.
A bird flies off her nest.
A traffic policeman starts his day duty – and
I am hearing the Church bell ringing boldly.
Up came from the sea –
A light to abolish darkness of the night.
Little by little – He conquers the darkness.
I felt the warmth in my soul bit by bit.
The day starts in no time.
My watch shows me 6 AM and I am starting my day.
Never will I forget my usual dialogue I say to my friends:
Even if the moon fails to reflect light back to Earth,
The Sun keeps shining…
Be like the Sun.

Raindrops

I looked up at the blue sky.
Sunlight seemed to dim a bit…
Lightning rolled here and there…
White clouds spread all over…
Birds try to return home…
I am walking on the pavement.

Winter is around the corner.
The storm rages in full speed…
I forgot to hear the weather update today…
People rush to return to homes…
All of life came to a standstill…
I am walking on the pavement.

Vehicles rush with full speed.
Dogs return to their masters
Children left their school…
Trees never took a break to circulate wind…
Wish I was in home drinking coffee…
I am walking on the pavement.

No doubts – Water is the elixir of life.
Rain makes the land fertile…
Rain gives bliss to our tired souls…
Rain makes life possible…
I remember myself praying for the rain…
I am walking on the pavement.

Rain is a prayer well-answered.
My thoughts continue to linger…
I slowed down my walk…
Raindrops started to fall on me…
Earth thanked sky for the rain…
I continued to walk on the pavement.

To the Creator

What would have God thought?
When he created our planet…
When he commanded the sea and formed the land…
When he made the animals…
When he created me…
What would have God felt like?
When the Earth started to revolve around the mighty Sun…
When the birds chirped for the first time…
When the first wave hit the shore…
When I took my first breath…
What did God do?
When the first day and night passed…
When sunshine hit the land for the first time…
When the moon borrowed sunlight at night…
When I opened my eyelids for the first time…
I intend not to find the answers…
For, whatever you think is the answer for the questions I asked:
The answers are beautiful.
Instead of asking questions to God,
Let us enjoy thinking on the beautiful answers we have got!

How people are trying to adopt new technology trends during the Lockdown?

With the Lockdown in progress, technology trends have increased in a rapid phase day by day. Be it work or school, each and every sector has been trying their best to stay connected and keep the progress on.

Almost all the IT companies in the world have adopted the Work From Home (WFH) strategy to continue their business. Though the WFH practice has mixed reviews, it has become the new trend for IT workers worldwide. When the lockdown was announced initially, all the companies started their Business Continuity Procedures on a fastrack basis. Slow and steadily now, people have got used to this new trend. Obviously, this is the only way to continue business during the lockdown. Business related calls and online meetings have been reported to occupy much of the time for employees on a daily basis which is affecting the productivity and work-life balance. Certain technical glitches with respect to slow network speed, dis-connectivity of servers, etc have also proved to be a hindrance to work these days. However, the workforce have been continuously braving these problems and continue to deliver awesome service to clients across the globe.

Learning is said to be a continuous process. Nowadays, learning has become completely online. Apps such as Google Classroom and Zoom have provided the educators with tremendous opportunities to reach students on a daily basis and continue education. Teachers are being trained to deliver lessons to students online. People have also shown tremendous interests in gaining online certification and enhancing their skills for a better future by registering themselves to apps like Udemy, Coursera, etc. Hope more and more online forums get developed for learners to continue learning without any hindrance in the days to come.

Technology trends keep evolving day by day. Let us learn to adopt with the new technology trends for the ultimate benefit of everyone and bravely pass through these hard times.
