Humanity

A transition…

Hello people!!!

I have finally joined in my aspiring course MSW (Masters of Social Work). I was having so many ideas running through my mind once I got relieved from my job. But since my childhood I was aspiring to become a social worker and once when I grew up I found MSW as a course which concurs with my long-lasting wish.

As a result of it obviously I went for an admission with MSW course and waiting for the college to get started with a new phase of my life. This is how I was thinking until I joined this course. But in this few days of time I realized few totally diverse thoughts about me and my ideas and guess this was really a transaction phase of my life. The few questions that I asked myself are:

  • What am I really gonna do by learning this course?
  • Am I gonna do social service to the people through this learning process?
  • But why can’t I do it by being in some other work?
  • Is it really necessary to stop working and go in for learning?
  • And by learning this will I be able to serve people better?

I was such a naïve for all these days and even now. I am really not able to take a right decision I guess. But what so ever be the result is I have decided to go on with my studies and once decision is made there must not be any looking back. And the answers for these questions are:

  • I always thought of helping and serving people. But never really had chance to do it nonchalantly. Though I am basically a person who would go for help voluntarily and at times I even put in few extra taken for fulfilling my wishes by going to orphanages and old age homes, I have no clear approach of how to move with people and handle all kind of people by handling my work with service and it directed me to minor time utilization for my obsession of serving. So by joining this course I would not have any work related stress and with some extra time usage I would be able to concentrate on my passion and make myself fit in right along with it.
  • Service basically doesn’t depend on the work or place or time a person is in. But it’s the effort he puts in whole heartedly in serving to his fellow people right from his own family and friends. Though I knew these well, I still wanted to make myself dedicated to my passion than running around for unrealistic money which weighs human beings these days despite of a persons character, love and affection towards each other even though they are our own family.

Being a girl I have limited space to move on in this society but being a human being I have this whole world to wrap it under my love and affection. Thus this is quiet a transition in my life.

Your valuable suggestions are always accepted whole heartedly… 🙂

Wish me luck guys!!!

Invictus – The Unconquered!!!

Hello all…

It’s so startling to see how people write poems though they are not a poet by name… But I guess when a person pens down his feelings into words, no matter what; it does mean a lot to be an article or a poem. A poem is the essence of feelings we have stagnated into our soul for years and years and once we see a podium of presentation we do present it a way better. Say it a simple or complicated word of usage, all that matters at the end of the day is whether the person reading it is able to find the feelings in your words and understands what you meant to say actually.

We would have read so many poems right from our childhood in our English classes by very famous authors. But what I wonder even now is – Where the hell do they find those words? Being a Content Architect I must be actually familiar with a lot number of words and its meaning so that I could use it in times of need. But that doesn’t always happen with me. Thanks to the Bill gates for offering me the MS Word which offers me a list of alternatives for a single word and I do depend on it. But to my surprise without any kind of word help how could those legends find such intricate words and use it exactly in the places where it needs apt. They are indeed legends I may say.

Hmmm moving on to the topic… Have you heard of the word invictus? Even I haven’t until I saw a film with that name a year back. And that was one of the best film I have ever watched. If you haven’t watched it yet… Then it’s time for you to go watch it for sure guys… It’s such an epic. It portrays a part of the South African President Nelson Mandela’s life style and his traits in personal life and in political life and a game that changed the life of South African people as well. And Morgan Freeman has depicted Nelson Mandela in this film and none other than him can do such a remarkable work.

In that Morgan Freeman would quote about the INVICTUS poem and when I happened to hear it I felt a nostalgic feeling in my heart. The words in the poem are so mesmerizing and to hear the poem in the voice of Morgan Freeman melts our heart liquefied. The poem is:

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

This poem is written by the great poet William Ernest Henley. This poem is being my motivator in times of anguish ever since I heard it.

Madiba (Mr.Nelson Mandela’s nick name by his South African People) had this poem as his favorite for lifetime and reading this poem and valuing it might eventually show us the value of his life and moral principles he preserve. Madibha is indeed a great personality and do get to know him by watching this film and hearing these lines and I bet you would surely fall in love with this poem and Madibha as like me.

I had this in mind for penning down in my blog a long before but I somehow missed it and now luckily I got to remember it and so I’ve posted this.

Have an Invictus Day!

(Invictus means – Undefeated/Unconquerable)

Epic of Love!!!

Dad why don’t you try to understand us. We haven’t done anything crime. Please dad we love each other for the past 5 years and you knew it well. Why can’t you accept us dad?” pleaded Janaha with tears running down all over her face.

Just forget that rouge you idiot. I am just leaving you alive based on some kindness as you are my daughter. Get out of my sight and never again speak of him” yelled Vasudev at his daughter.

Dad please. It’s been 5 long years ever since we started begging for our life and why can’t you even consider us once in your life? How long do you think of house-arresting me? Though we both knew everything what you’re been doing to separate us, we trust each other and thus our love becomes stronger each and every day not even seeing each other for the past 8months.

Shut up your blabbering and go in Janaha. Don’t make me take a tough decision

What do you mean by tough decision dad? Are you gonna kill me?

I said you to go in now!

Stop it dad. I’m done with all your dramatic expressions. Why don’t you act a bit human? Whats your problem dad? Mithun is our neighbor and you knew him well from his childhood. And above all he is our caste too. What is that hinders you from accepting our love. It’s just your useless ego that made us shed tears with all the tortures that we’ve been through. Everything has a limit dad. He means a lot to me. And now do listen carefully dad. I love him and I no more gonna wait for your approval. It’s my life and being 24 years of age I have the sole right to take my own decision. I waited so long for your approval but everything went in vein. So I’ve made my decision and I need you to get to know this dad

Well done my girl. That takes a lot of courage to you to speak up to your dad like that. I’d appreciate it. But don’t act lame and just get to bed now. I can find you all grown up now and stand here threatening your dad but you haven’t understood the fact that you can never do anything that makes me or my prestige by letting it down. I am least cared about your immature love feelings and all. Now go to your bed” ordered Vasudev in a mystifying tone.

Janaha knew it well that there is nothing gonna change her dad anyways. So she decided to elope with Mithun finally with everything kept ready before hand with a secret message which she passed out to her love a week before. And for a final try she was standing there pleading her dad for his acceptance. Finding her dad’s decision she left to her room silently and locked her up as usual and started to wait for the time to struck 1 a.m.

And the time has come. The clock struck 1 a.m. and Janaha got up from her bed and tried to elope through the secret passage which Mithun has made for her escape. He is been waiting on the other end of the passage for more than a hour restless with fear running all over his veins and when he saw the clock striking 1 a.m. his heart begun pounding as though it might jump off through his mouth.

Janaha kept each of her steps with more care and made sure that nobody watches her until she reaches that passage. Once she reached the passage she is free from worries as none of their family can find that passage so easily. She was moving ahead with a nostalgic feeling that was filled over her whole body and she was sweating like a dead meat with all the fear in her heart.

All of a sudden she experienced an electric shock that passed over her body and she fell down to the ground with a loud noise. Unluckily she had stepped on the electric wire which is been kept half done. Somehow she managed to get up and move forward to the passage. In the mean time hearing the noise her dad and her brother got up and came out looking for the reason and found her trying to escape.

Vasudev and Varun went to the peak of rage and they caught her red-handed and dragged her inside the home.

You little brat. How dare you try to elope with that worthless fellow by cheating us? Who gave you so much courage to do this? Is it Mithun? Now its time for me to payback to both of you. Enough of my lenience. Even if I don’t react now, I have to stand mortified in front of my relatives and friends because of you. Varun get that venom from the freezer.” Yelled Vasudev at his son.

Dad, are you serious? Should I really take it?” asked varun puzzled.

Yes varun. I mean it. Just do what I say and no more questions

Ok dad” said Varun and bought the venom.

After all these fury Janaha made no hustle and she stood there tough.

Look at her. How stubborn she is? It’s not going to happen any better leaving her alive. She will be creating shame to us and our family only” saying so Vasudev compelled her to drink the venom and he threw it away emptying the full content of the venom into her throat.

Janaha was still brave and she didn’t make any move for rescuing herself. Instead she spoke her last words with much strain which made her father turn pale.

Bravo dad. You’ve done it. You have succeeded in you ego and useless stature. But you know what? Even now I have won the battle. You can kill me now but you cannot stop me and Mithun living happily after our death. And just remember dad. Lovers die and not the true love and it lives forever. Am proud of dying for the sake of our great love. Thanks dad” saying so died Janaha creating an epic for her true love.

Mithun stood there, on the other side of the passage, waiting for Janaha’s arrival till the crack of dawn with a lot of emotions and thoughts running through his mind. Hearing the expression of grief from Janaha’s mom he rushed in her home and found Janaha lying there speechless and frozen. Thus ended his life of joy and pleasure and unable to take over the huge shock he turned out to be upset mentally and he was found laying over the grave of Janaha for 4 long years unaware of who he is and where he is and finally one day his soul left his body and united with his love after so long years of battle and rivalry. Thus lived the most beautiful lovers of the earth blissfully ever after in the kingdom of heaven without any interference.

Note: This is an actual anecdote of a couple, who are a relative of mine, who lived in interiors of South India in early 80’s where the caste and status played the major role in the minds of human beings. I have heard a lot about them and their sufferings to succeed in love from my parents which is so hard to put into words and thus I have made it in short and presented it for all of you on this Valentines Day. This post is dedicated to both of them and I hope they will still love each other. Happy Valentines Day!

Leading India!!!

We are human beings in general. Though differentiated with country, cast and creed we need to indulge basic humanities and morals to lead our life honest and successful. But we mostly do not even possess basic thought of “Making Things Happen” with love, care, affection, team work and above all a bonding with our fellow people and our Motherland.

When i saw this video i was mind-struck with the act of this cute little one when there are a huge bunch of people in the scene without a sense of caring for their own people and country. We people should develop our bonding with each and everyone we see in our daily walks of life making us care for everything with humanity that happens around us 🙂

Love the making of this ad with humanity 🙂

The below are few other ad’s that are must watched by all on my list:

Though we have come across these ad’s in our lives in some sort of time we have not taken it into a biggest consideration. When i have it as a collection in my list i find myself ashamed of not considering my people, my siblings, my parents, my sons & daughters and my mother India! Not only Indians must be lead through by Education, but also through values and morals. Changing my thoughts and belief’s on the world to a newer horizon of bonding with each other with humanity and leading India is also my prime goal!!! Jai Hind!!!
