Some people still live inside the womb while i was completely out after nine months. quote By Shilpi Chauhan
People today have many faces
leading lives without any traces
there’s no one face anymore
it was only, when they were four
when their face was bright as sunshine
things brought smile were less than a dime
they eat, drank and played with everyone
but now keep looking for that, some ‘one’
they loved everyone without a thought
hugged each other even when they fought
to them now adds each year
a different face with a thick layer
the face of smartness and desperation
in search of millions to joy and recreation
wishing every day to go back in years
tired of guilt and living in fears
longing everyday to be happy like a child
searching for innocence among the wild
this is what people are doing today
forgetting their roots and old play
though none can pierce into the thick
that is thickened each year with a new trick
so once all grown cannot be rooted out
tentacles grow in us just as the sprout
still there’s something even if we ‘re done
out of so many faces just pick any one
Every genre of life holds some kind of productive roots that need to be harnessed in order to sustain for life and better livelihood to keep cycle of life consistent. For a human, its quite unimaginable to think about a life that is absent of materialism.The pursuit of this powerful yet significant source ( money) for life is ruthless and impinges upon the life so much that without it one can barely live the act of living.
The insatiable human life that never cease’s to desire materialism, hardly has any space left for spiritual conscious growth that could pose as a great escape for some who breath their last breath of soot in misfortune as their endless failures never ended.
For some failure is the end of experiments but for me failure is a beautiful concept that reminds me of my existence, am alive and in action and that I am making full use of every breath of mine. And i never fail to happen be it for countless failures or little spells of chance success. life is as much you and i know about it with past present and future attributed around two words success or failures but we fail to see beyond these two dictionary words.
It is unexpected of any human to detach them self from the life they have today, with so much of happening around them, since childhood school to their adulthood offices, life is full of events, emotions etc. whatever has happened in the past or whatever will happen in the future, we all try to personalize them and include those events of the past to the present moment and even attach the present shaping to suit it best for the future.
In the process we stop realizing the present which is all today the very moment we live in, we care so much about the failures the mistakes the events that happened that it begin to shape our future through our present moments of pondering over the past, thinking it shouldn’t happen again in the future we keep ruining and playing with the present.
The future has innumerable opportunities that the present may not know, the lack of awareness of the future is a blessing i believe as the graph of life is never a line, its rhythmic and this is a sign that we should have rebellious hope to do our work till the end whatever be the outcome let it remain, let it hold, but never stop the action.
Failures often leave us down and disappointed and even hopeless so much that we choose to quit action or some may even quit their lives, because again the matter is how you take the failures . There can be intermittent or consistent failures in life , if you ask me, i have consistent failures that i never personalize.
Because the day you begin to personalize with the failures its the day you cease to act anymore. Be it one or endless failures it should never let you stop, rather be rebellious having hope not for success or winning but hope that you shall continue despite these failures even if it happen time and again .
To hope in misery is to be rebel, to hope life in death is rebel, Hope is an endless rebellion towards life that even failure is natural and so is the hope that should never end. Hope is just not a factor or a word if you term it like that then the failure is just a word defined for a thing, idea, or event that went wrong not the way you planned.
I believe that these terms like, failure, mistakes, devastated depressed, death, divorce, pain, ruined etc are becoming more symbolic and full of imagery the moment you think of them whereas the positive words like being happy, love,hope, faith, never give up, belief etc are becoming more abstract because we can barely find any of the events describing them in our imagination when we are only going through the above negative terms that heavily sits and eat up our conscious.
which is why more and more people are becoming sad and full of disappointing because the ones they seek approval from or even look up for positivism are themselves full of negativity in and around them. we actually have lost our innate capacity to harness our own energy for being positive and its hard to do that mechanical work now of rebuilding.
The more practical answer to failures is then only the rebellious hope for this you need not change your mental setup of all positive and spirituality because i know its very hard to do it, even i cannot pull myslef from thinking negative so many times but the thing i always practice is this incessant hope i keep which becomes more and more rebellious with every failure that i encounter.
It has made me hard and courageous and so much that am least affected by life, am more able to enjoy small moments of happiness i dont long for big ones and i enjoy small things like eating the left piece of cake, or cooking some noodle, playing with my niece, or watching my Favorite songs. I no longer wait but i still move and act and i dont give up on action in life for there’s nothing to loose till the time you’re alive play with life.
Its really hard to find what is best in us because there are so many opportunities that we may get to work for in life and many that we dont even know about their existence. In such events it becomes necessary to experience as many thin gs in life so that we may get to know and see what we are best in doing.
I may not know if i were good in gymnastics or ballet dance or playing piano or a guitar, because i did not get the opportunity to try and experience them so far.
And this is why i feel that every child during his/her childhood should be given ample scope to try each and every sports , creative activities, technology, spirituality, and many other fores of life where if it is possible for parents they should try every endeavor to let their kids discover their true talents and where their creativity holds.
There might be many reasons where some kids may not be able to get such opportunities to explore their creative potentials in such circumstances the best thing you can give a child is “freedom”of, choice where he /she can choose the activity , hobby, interest that they like the most doing . This will nurture self reliance and confidence among them for even getting a choice, where they can transform their habit, interests into their passion and lead to innovation or developing their creative best talent.
For Kids it is as much important as academics and care for their development. But there is no age bar when it comes to finding your best even adults can discover their true talents at any stage of their life and try to maximize acquiring and benefiting from the opportunities galore that is there today to try their hands on every skill set through finding needful time on weekends and holidays.
Opportunities grow and develop with time, the sooner you identify them, the sooner you create space for success .
A poem written by me, describing importance of creativity and why kids should be given an opportunity to explore.
THE SEAT OF CREATIVITY
The blissful smile on the flawless face,
of a child so near to GOD
of thy spirits and thy beauty,
no boundaries see but bold,
As they not match,
to man ,not hatch
any plots or conspire
to gain the seat in heaven
they cherish no desire.
Thy pity on the soul of mankind,
persuaded and chasted by thy smiles ..
thy unconditional signs of affection,
maketh us realise
That he who sits in heaven
is eying on our crimes ,
be it guilt or mercy,
the child knows it all.
The eyes that wanders about
in space but casts a spell on us
make ways through all odds,
be it light or dust,
to show us omens of good and
bad they cry ,feel sad or sneeze.
and a little hope is bestowed
when they smile its breeze
like the dew drops on the tiny leaves
in the arms of blessed trees.
Not a son nor a daughter
in tenderness and warmth of big hands,
be called by its name,
but a child is a child ,
who until has no name,
lest they touch the chest,
of mother earth and lift
up themselves all alone.
they be called children ,
in the entire eternity
their childhood thus claimed
the seat of creativity
