Sovereignty lies to Almighty.

I hardly comment on peoples post on Facebook but whenever I do, it ends into a debate or sometimes people stop replying.

I think people just don't want to know the truth and want themselves to remain in their fake comfort zones thinking that there is no better life other than what they are living now.

One more discussion on Facebook ends abruptly...

Varun Kumar:

"An earthly kingdom cannot exist without inequality of persons. Some must be free, some serfs, some rulers, some subjects."- Martin Luther King.

I am quoting it here in context of people who think that merciless punishment and stricter laws will do any good.It never has, It never will.

The world will always have the rapists{and other similar social evils}, and protesting violently and vehemently is never gonna change anything.

Its like trying to cure a disease which never has any cure.All we can do is take precautions, to make sure that we don't fall prey to the disease.We can never save women from rapists. All we c…

The Path Less Trodden!!!

By the steeds that run, with panting breath, Striking sparks of fire by their hooves And scouring to the raid at dawn And raising the dust in the clouds the while, Penetrating forthwith as one into the midst. (Quran 100:1-5)
It all started with a walk. Thirteen horses lining up; moving out from the usual arena on the path untrodden and into the wild, on a muddy trail with lush green bushes on both the sides, the fresh morning breeze fluttering the ears of my horse(Santro).

A week long wait was over and our patience had finally paid off. A chill went down our spine the moment we saw a glimpse of the Himayat Sagar lake. Trotting among the bushes and splashing on the muddy waters, we finally reached the banks of the lake. We all were eagerly waiting for the next expected instruction from Naved, "Guys, now you are on your own!!" What happened after that is better explained by the above verse from the Quran than any human can express.

It was the moment, when for the first time, I cant…

The Great Fall!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a Horse,
Humpty Dumpty had a Great Fall!

Today was the ultimate day. Some may call it aar ya paar(now or never). Today 'Sniper' tried to snipe me. Luckily, he missed the bulls eye. :P

No sooner do people start appreciating you and patting your back for being a good learner than the atom of pride shadows the real you and you try to deceive yourself by believing that, ‘Yes, I have done it!'. And then comes an eternal force slapping you hard on your face, making you realize your true strength, saying, "Dude, you're nothing in front of my power!"

A Whip in your hand and the giant beast below you, you think you're the boss, and you try whipping him hard and the next second you're on the ground and that beast is above you. It happened in the blink of an eye.

All praise be to that eternal power who is all merciful and who created us and that powerful beast. There is no way any human could have controlled what happened in that second. I believ…

TRANQUILITY

Leaving office, stressed out but extremely happy on completing a project, I decided to go to the beach along with my friend; to spend some time away from this maddening life and get some fresh air. I even expected watching the sun descend slowly and disappear over the horizon of the Bay of Bengal. Reaching there, I realized that Bay of Bengal is in the east and I cannot bid a goodbye, but can only welcome the rising sun in the morning. 



I was sitting there quietly, with my legs sprawled out in front of me, sometimes gazing at the infinite sky and sometimes watching the waves weave into each other. Strong cold breeze from the sea blew on my face and through my hair, taking all my fear, stress and anxiety with them. The cool waves touched my feet and subsided almost as quickly as they rose. Relaxing there, I sensed a feeling of freedom I had never experienced before.

A bit further, I saw some little boys and girls building sand castles. Within no time, the waves would wipe out what they h…
