When Saturn Met Sun..

Saturn had rings all over and decided to rush push all planets and meet Sun..

Sun ‘You are my son.. Don’t hurry.. else I will ensure you are the slowest moving planet in this universe’

Saturn ‘Dad, I just wished to see my father and here you are hurting me’

Sun ‘Discipline is most important.. Never break rules’

Saturn ‘Ok Dad, from today onwards who ever will break rules, I will punish them. I will punish who ever are in hurry or better still I will tempt people to bad path too and good path too. If the person moves the bad way and will begin breaking many rules, soon that person will be caught in my rings and I will punish them’

Sun looks zapped

Sun ‘I never thought you would take my message so seriously. I was only grooming you and you decided to groom the whole universe?’

Saturn ‘I believe discipline enhances personality of a man. I should test the man for his patience and similarly a woman too..’

Sun ‘Do you feel people will believe you?’

Saturn ‘When things will go wrong in a person’s life every 7 and 1/2 years and every time I will enter the opposite side of their life I will expose people of what they really are. All ego’s, money, assets everything which they earned will vanish if they were not disciplined in their life. You told me to not rush. I will not rush.. I will slowly and surely make a person realize that being down to earth, humble, law abiding and compassionate will give an individual more reward’

Sun ‘Any proofs?’

Saturn ‘Check out all great personalities who are respected in this earth, all have my influences’

Sun ‘What about richness?’

Saturn ‘My friend Venus is responsible for bestowing wealth, only if I decide that the person should be rewarded’

Sun ‘What about education?’

Saturn ‘Primary education is given by my philosopher guide Jupiter. I don’t like his style so teach people life in different way’

Saturn ‘Unique style of teaching. I love it.. Hope entrepreneurs get my message and even ones who get dejected or hurt or robbed, remember you had broken some rule and some point of time in your life and am just helping you realize your mistake’

 

Happy Birthday Dear

Life as it was, seasons came, reasons changed, motivation came, inspiration changed as I move in my journey of life with same enthusiasm and thank god for everything bestowed to me for being with me always as I celebrate my human existence again today

Life for me was always a journey where many characters came and added more of their experiences to my learning.

As a child I remember the birthday party where I felt like an angel with claps around and loads of toys and cakes all around.. Loving the moments with a new dress and moving to god and seeking blessings.

As a teenager, wishing to be with my close friends.. and dreaming some beautiful angel will propose me by saying ‘I love you’ during birthday moments.. and then a pep dance to pep the mood.

As a youth, I still loved birthdays where with my dear friends and my good girl friend in toe, I would move to the sea view restaurant enjoying the moments of sea and wondering how seasons changed, but I remembered same’

As a mid aged person, I began wondering what all I did on my birthday and a small kid rushed to me with a rose and said ‘Happy Dear Friend, I could not get anything from my pocket money but this rose.. Did your girl friend wish you earlier then me? I know you keep writing those letters to someone Susan’

I smiled at the kid and said ‘Susan.. She is a fiction, no girl friend in my life. you are my sweet little angel whom I love the most’

Charlie closes his eyes and goes to sleep on his birthday eve and to his delight next day he finds the kid with a very beautiful girl Mary

Kid ‘Sir, Mary is single, Can you marry her?’

Charlie ‘Why so much mercy on me?’

Kid ‘Was deeply moved by those letters you kept writing in garden and one of letter, I read.. felt you need someone who can take care of you so found Mary. She is a good cook and runs a small restaurant where I help her and also stay with her. She is my god mother’

Charlie hugs the kid and asks ‘What is your name dear?’

Kid ‘Angel’

 

 

South Pacific Blues

The South Pacific Ocean has many islands and many of the islands are hardly having people.  Soloman was a rich Europe origin business man settled in New Zealand. He got a brainwave to involve people from these islands to make aquariums.

Solomon ‘Freida, post an advertisement in all leading channels of Fiji, PNG, New Zealand, Australia invited fisher men bodies to come for a training program’

Lisa  ‘Do you feel it will work?’

Solomon ‘Cent percent’

Lisa ‘Why you so sure?’

Solomon ‘Do you know the US economy impacted by US$1Billion through zoos and aquariums. Why not provide training programs to the local resources and above all we can conserve the coral reefs’

Night time, Lisa sees the fishes in her home aquarium and wonders at the life of fish

‘Life is restless in land and comfortable in sea and ocean where a fish explores the deeper nature of sea, intermingling with many fishes, endangered by sharks and whales but silently swimming and then a day comes when a fisher man catches them.. and either it is moved to fish market for consumption or.. if it is a fanciful fish, captured in aquarium’

Do human being like being caged?  Aren’t we the South Pacific community too constrained by nature.. Vey less industrialization, heavy imports and…..  then I lost my boy friend to a Dubai based girl’

Next day

Lisa ‘Solomon, I really wonder is capturing something and selling it is human?’

Solomon ‘Nature built this eco system.. We are just in that eco system where someone else will do the business if we wont’

Solomon ‘Check on the employment opportunities it will create’

A few days latter

Solomon ‘Welcome to the largest cooperative internationalization attempt to exports aquariums using community based programs. We plan to launch an aquarium training center and as cost is being worked out, we invite all to demonstrate their catch’

Soon the entire conference room is flooded with various type of unique fishes all neatly put in small aquariums’

Solomon is happy.. He announces a fund of 1M$ for entrepreneurship around fishing industry..

All are elated..

At night Lisa pens a thought

‘Love is also similar to a Fish.. A fish in our heart traveling across till someone snatches the heart and we begin feeling we are in love, if the sea in heart of the next person matches the taste, the fish survives else the fish is lost in that sea of heart.. Similar to South Pacific Blues’
