Dear Friend,

Oh, how can this be

You and I are losing me.

Some day soon

Maybe morning, Maybe noon

I will no longer be the me

You and I know as me.

I ask, what is happening to me,

And the answer seems to be

Words and thoughts frequently scramble

And my conversations seem to ramble.

O, how can this be

You and I are losing me.

What do you see when you look into my eyes?

And neighbors just to pry?

Confusion, hurt, pity and pain,

For I am ill and not insane.

Oh Lord, help me I pray,

And this is what He seems to say,

“Fear not child, I will come and take you home,

To be with me for all eternity.”

What can we do from losing me?

“Nothing” say the experts.

But in my confused and foggy state,

To you I plea,

“Love me,

Remember me

Help me to be

All that I can be

For as long as I can be

The me we know as me.”

Powerful Quote #173 : Unsold Goodness

Market of Life

In the market of life, a few good people remain unsold. Many may think they are worthless to be bought, but they are indeed priceless to get sold. Such people never go down on a discount. May be they wait for the deserving person, who gives thyself to earn them!

Humanity : Counterattacking Discrimination

This is one intriguing as well as annoying incident happened in the Delhi Metro, shared by a Facebook user. He in fact was a fellow passenger who witnessed this and shared it with the world. Here it is in his words

” This morning I saw a well-dressed senior citizen, wearing Ray-Ban sun glasses, who boarded the Delhi Metro and went towards a pair of seats reserved for senior citizens. In it where two young boys in their early twenties; one was a well-dressed boy wearing a conspicuous headphone and listening to songs and the other was a boy who looked like a construction worker, wearing rubber slippers and slightly soiled due to some laborious task he had just completed.

The supposed construction worker had a dark complexion and was sleeping when the old man entered the metro. On seeing the old man, the boy with the headphones, immediately vacated his seat while the supposed construction worker, was still sleeping. The old man, woke him up and asked him to get up. Caught unaware, the boy saw the vacant seat next to him (because it had been vacated) and asked the old man to take that seat, but the old man refused and he insisted that the boy gets up so that he can sit with the boy wearing the headphones.

The supposed construction worker refused and told the old man that he can take the vacant seat. Suddenly, the old man turned caustic and told the boy that he is sleeping early in the morning and added that he must be from Bihar. He also added that he will take the boy to task in the next station.

The old man’s aversion to share a seat with someone whom he thought doesn’t fit his stature was so evident and quite nauseating. Unperturbed by the retort and the gaze of the onlookers, the dark complexioned boy firmly said that it doesn’t matter where he is from, he knows what his rights are, and he isn’t scared of the old man’s intimidation.

The old man grudgingly took the seat next to the boy and the boy continued sitting with a calm demeanor. A few stations later, when a lady boarded the train, the young boy vacated the seat for her and the old man looked like a fool. The boy’s response and his confidence levels were so impressive, that I was couldn’t resist but walk up to him to shake hands with him and appreciate him for his behavior. I found out that his name is Arjun and I did not bother to know where he is from.

Some of us still carry the old and disgusting colonial mindsets of discrimination and deprivation even today, many of us are onlookers (like how I was today), and that’s even worse. But it is people like Arjun who assert their rights, break the false walls that many build and many more like us allow them to be built. But if individuals do not assert themselves and if the society doesn’t actively support people asserting their just rights, how will India as a nation assert itself?

That’s why I believe that Arjun is an everyday hero.”

Wrote it from a Quote : Help

help

“If you helped someone, never showoff them that you have helped them once. If you have that habit, please do not help anyone hereafter.”
a picture was saying the quote on a wall in a home.

The neighbour read that, rushed back to his home and written a quote on a big photo and hanged it on the wall in his home. That said,
“…Also, if you have the habit of forgetting the gratefulness of a help that someone did for you, please do not ask anyone for a help again! “

The first person was hurt by someone who has helped him and the neighbour was hurt by someone who forgot the help he did! So if we do not want to get hurt, do help or get help, but, never showoff that you have helped and never be ungrateful to those who helped you.
