The Show Must Go On

It’s already been a very very long time since Lockdown was announced due to COVID-19 Pandemic. Nobody would have even expected a situation like this to happen anytime before. I hope God gives us all enough health and strength to successfully get out of the Pandemic and return to old normal soon. I have discontinued writing for almost a month, but its always good to be back. Yesterday, when I logged into WordPress to write a poem – I realized that all my thinking have been influenced a lot by the ongoing tough situations in our planet. It seemed like the year 2020 has just now started, but we have already completed 10 months of the year. “What did I do this year?” is one of the most prevalent question that I had heard throughout this year from many of my friends. In fact, I guess this question has been put forth by my mind to me multiple times. However, sometimes we cannot calm our minds. The best choice is to take good care of ourselves and our mind whenever possible.

This year has taught us a lot of things. Initially, we were happy and excited while sending New Year wishes to people. Then came the Lockdown. Ever since Lockdown was announced, things have changed a lot for many of us. For me, I have never even thought of working from home before. There never came a situation when I had to opt for ‘Work From Home’ before. I was excited thinking of the ‘Work From Home’ concept. However, there are multiple turn of events during the execution of it. Even then, I am pretty glad & forever thankful to God that I could continue my work during these unexpected situations.

Quite a lot of events have taken place in our World. Cricket and Soccer matches are happening with no spectators. Movies are being released on OTT platforms. Work is performed from home. Virtual meetings and virtual award shows have become normal now. Online Teaching and Online Learning are being practiced in schools. There is no end to this list. There is a common saying which goes like this: “Whatever happens, the show must go on”. I hope everyone have heard this saying multiple times in our lifetime. Hence, be full of hope and pass on beautiful positive vibes wherever you are.

Remember…THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

Wish

‘Wish’ is a powerful word…
In childhood, everyone uses this word with excitement.
“I wish to become a scientist.”
“I wish to become a doctor.”
“I wish to become a pilot.”
We all wished to be something great…
As we grew up, the same word is used by people with regret.
“I wish I had chosen an alternate choice.”
“I wish I could reverse time and live differently.”
“I wish I was this and I was that.”
I agree, fate too played it’s part in our lives but –
Whatever we are now and whatever we have become now are all product of our actions in the past. The truth is ‘We are in no control of changing anything which has taken place in our past.’
I wish God smiles at us in the upcoming days…
You would have heard this line a million times in your life, yet I want to say this:
Whatever happens, happens for a very good reason. So, let’s take a deep breath, keep a happy memory in our mind, smile and keep moving forward !!!

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!
