bag

a bag of life

all empty in beginning

add an item here

add an item there..

full and overloaded in no time..

remove an item here

remove an item there

trim and sleek in time

a bag of life

choose an item here

choose an item there

all cannot fit in one bag

need to discard few

need to accept few

do have some space left

the space needed to

let items breathe fully.

a bag of life

 

depends on us

what we treasure

what we discard

 

Wisdom of Relation

Nancy is fedup of her mother who continuously keeps lecturing her on Does and Dont’s of life.. and one day…

Nancy ”enough is enough Mom.. now listen to me..”

Mom Pesi is stumped.. She remembers how her husband left her for this continuous bombardment of advices…

Nancy

”if you were so perfect.. why did he leave you..  if you were so beautiful.. why do you still need make up kits to decorate self..   If you were so social.. why the same friends gossip about you..  If you were so good in making food dishes.. why you didn’t make food for us every day…  Did you never made friends without your parent’s permission? Did you never fell in love without your mind and only allowed heart to think? Why do you give advices.. when am already overloaded with you knowledge bombardment..  Just let me live in peace Mom..   everything will never be perfect… am an imperfectionist.. so let it be.. if you wish to love me for what I am.. just do that.. do not try to change me.. and one thing you should do.. is change other’s mind set only through self realization”

Mom hugs Nancy..

Mom ”Nancy.. you are grown up now.. I should begin searching for a boy for you”

Nancy bursts laughing..

Nancy ”Mom.. so now that you will stop advicing me.. you are now going to search boys for me.. good going… there is a saying Empty Mind is Devil’s workshop and  Mom’s mind is Devil’s workshop too.. keep thinking how to always put me under some pressure or not..  so now you wish me to decorate self and show self to prospects”

Mom ”being single.. all can talk anything..  the day a boy will come into your life.. you will realize who the real devil is…  love makes us do everything.. and one day without listening to me.. your father just left me for that other lady.. simply because she didnt care for him.. only his wealth.. would only listen to him and just keep demanding”

Nancy ”Mom.. common.. now you are getting emotional.”

Nancy hugs Mom

Nancy ”Wisdome of Relation is nothing but to keep nurturing the relation we already have built and strengthening it”

 

Faltered Role Model

Som ”in our life many a time we choose role models and then…”

Mike ‘do not taunt me… agreed I imitated him.. just relied on lavish life style,.. did whatsoever he was doing and went bankrupt’

Som ‘ Look at nations.. in quest of imitation.. unemployment issue is overlooked..”

Mike ”relax.. we are going to get a big boom in employment soon”

Som ”let us stop this topic… I wanted to inform you of Jenny”

Mike has pains in his eyes..

Mike ”she..imitated her mother and broke from me”

Som ”can you stop it.. .do you know what happened to her”

Mike ”not sure.. last she was with me 5 years back”

Som ”she donated her last amount of fund to a village in India”

Mike ”so what… she has this habit of donating right from time I met her.. she distributed my wealth too”

Som ”she plans to work on a concept ”ALTERED ROLE MODEL”

Mike ”what is that…’

Som ”We should not blindly follow history and believe in it.. just at times, look at positive aspects of ecosystem and enjoy…   each person in this world has been destined to have a particular life style by default.. then the alteration process begins.. multiple teacher, friends, family relatives.. and so on .. each influence us.. so her concept is all about influencers in a person”s life and mapping them for you as gift.. the positive vs.. negative energy… did you like the concept?”

Mike ”Why she left me?”

Som ”because you had gone arrogant with your wealth.. you and those yatch parties with ladies”

Mike smiles…

Mike ”seriously..  life teaches us .. that when an anchor is at home.. never leave that anchor.. .can I meet her?”

Som ”who stopped you from meeting”

Jenny ”let us go for a date today… evening Delhi Hatt’

In evening…

Mike ”so many state food and so yummy it looks.. wonder if stomach will get upset”

Jenny ”Mike.. so much of vibrancy here… sometimes.. I feel for all the imitations.. why cannot 2 countries.. 2 states.. all brain storm and make win-win employment situation”

Mike ”not again.. how come you also talking about same issue”

Jenny ”PASSION.. it compels me to think of a problem which all face in life… a low phase..

Mike ”Jenny can we check our future with this tarrot reader

a few minutes latter

The tarrot reader ”dear ones.. both of you are destined to be united together and be in India for long term”

Mike ”do not kid”

Tarrot reader sheepishly ”Sir.. you will be united together.. but we need bright entrepreneurs from USA to set up their offices in India.. be with us..”

Mike ”what is your background?”

Reader ”I was jobless for many years.. and then found here.. good number of god men succeed ..so ”
