Sky in my mind

Ever looked at the sky and wondered what it is made up of? I have been very curious when it comes to reading about sky facts. It is mind boggling even now when I am writing a blog post on ‘Sky’. The Universe holds a lot of mysteries and we are yet to decode a lot number of them. Some years back, Pluto was knocked off from the ‘Planet’ list. I felt very sorry for him (Just kidding). I hope someday I will unravel any one mystery of our universe. Hope is a good word. Faith is an awesome word. I love the positive vibes created when hope and faith are instilled in our minds. As far as mankind is concerned, hope and faith are amazing traits which we had kept alive for a very long time.

I still remember getting drenched in rain for the first time. It was a great experience. My mother made me paper boats and I was happily set sailing them on the flood water. The water current was very fast and it was swiftly taking all my paper boats and drowning them in the drain. Lightning and Thunder gave us company all night long. Life feels good when we understand it less. During those days, I don’t even know what causes rain. I just thought that water pours from sky to cool the Earth. Later, when I found out that rain is caused by clouds – My whole imagination of the sky changed. Science got explanation for everything. Little we know, yet there are lots yet to be known.

The people of the 21st century can never forget the current year 2020. We locked ourselves at home for a very long time now. I hope soon things will turn back to normal. Again I say, Hope is a good word. So, is praying. Keep our World in your prayers. Every night during this Lockdown (even yesterday), I go with my father to the terrace where we walk for some time and I watch the sky for a long time. Believe me, it’s the best time for sky watching. Some days, you’ll see clouds spread throughout the sky. Some days, you’ll see star-filled sky. Some days, you even get a chance to watch shooting stars. Every time I look at the sky during the night, I check for the Evening Star – Venus. Venus is the closest planet to our Earth and it is awesome to see Venus at night. Some nights especially when it is raining, I won’t have the chance to see even one star. In those days, our mighty warrior satellite Moon presents her with the thunder and lightning in the background. Without getting wet in the rain, I go inside my room and wish ‘Good Night’ to our planet.

The Sky keeps me guessing. I don’t know what to do but just close my eyes and continue dreaming. Sky in my mind!

Highway Plant

Everytime I travel through the highway,
I see green plants planted in the middle of the road for dividing the lanes.
Beautiful – I should say,
But who is taking care of them?
Who planted them there?
Who fixed their fate?
I believe we won’t be able to stand in the middle of the highway for atleast an hour.
Who has the patience to persist –
The smoke from the trucks,
The heat of the sun,
The harsh polluted wind,
The not-so-gentle rain &
The never ending noise of vehicles?
Patience is a million dollar virtue,
But we have a choice. Don’t we?
What choice does the highway plant have in it’s life?
Do we even give it a choice?
Still, it never fails to make travellers happy.
Maybe, it is a living proof that no matter where we are, we still have something to offer for the betterment of Life.
Stay blessed Highway Plant!

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!
