FOLLOW YOUR HEART

LEARNING AND EVOLVING

CALLING OF YOUR SOUL

Let it whisper  ,   Let it Sing

Let it be free from within 

Let it soar up in the sky so high 

Feel free to be what’s it meant to be

Please Watch “Do Ladke Ma Ke Bete” on YouTube It’s a sad story about the Pulwama attack

Happiness within

A beautiful hour spent with differently abled children who showered us with so much love that we felt high.

In a world where people have so much but still cannot share, these children with hearts of gold shared with us so much love and happiness God Bless them always

Can you feel the breeze

Kissing the cheeks

Hair flying all over

Sun hitting our eyes

But our spirits are

Flying high

The love that we received

From the angels

with their hugs and smiles

And left us ecstatic

And dreamy eyed


A New Beginning – The Year Gone By

Hello Everyone!

Sharing with you my joy and happiness on my path to recovery. Last year was a difficult year health wise. I was made aware my heart was working 30% which led to sluggishness and very less energy. Each day I had to pull myself up and talk to myself and be thankful for all the gifts that the universe had endowed on me and to be happy. To keep having faith in life and a positive outlook.

When I sometimes mentioned to doctors that I will heal and become better and their doubtful expressions which I saw on their faces did not deter me from my belief. My positive attitude finally made the miracle happen and the last visit to the doctor, I was informed my heart was working 45%, which made me feel so elated and joyful.

I just want to share with all my well wishers, friends and family who have been by my side and supported me throughout this phase, and I am really grateful for their support.

Penning down a small poem for the year gone by and hope it acts as an inspiration for all of you, that in life whatever comes accept it with open arms and stay positive, it will make a big difference to your lives.

The hopelessness, The despair

The shock, The understanding

That followed of the events gone by

What had life given me

Did I ask for it? Why?

Were the questions

That raced through my mind

It took me a while to understand

The tiredness in my bones

No energy to move on

Sleeping through the days

Seeing everyone rushing

Excited about life

Lots of things to do

And me living in my hole

Not wanting to move

The days passed by

Sometimes sad,

sometimes full of hope

For the better times

That I started dreaming of.

I meditated, I rested

Filling my days

with my children’s lives

Their dreams, Their hopes

Their aspirations

Their hugs, Their jokes

That’s what I lived for.

Quietly an understanding

crept on me

Asking me to stop

To think for a while

To enjoy to cherish

All that I had

And be grateful

What had started as hopeless

and full of despair

Turned out to be beautiful

And beyond words

The tentacles of sadness

Which had gripped me

And held me captive

In its dark recesses

Could hold me no longer

As its prisoner

I had broken the binds

And shackles

And moved on

To a life not bound

Not defined

By the world outside

Have a wonderful day. Stay Blessed

A Day to Remember

Hi Everyone!!

Hope you are all doing great.

Just going down memory lane, I want to share a day which brought a lot of butterflies in my stomach. The culmination of a month of hard work, the bringing together of so many people of different age groups, to performing the final dance in the stadium.

It was a big step and a great effort put by Kings United-Dance Academy Muscat lead by Tejas Udani Gupta, her dance teachers Gargi, Kajal and Swapnil to put the whole act together. Despite the various issues, the tensions arising out of difference of opinions, the issues of children not coming on time, trying to get the steps right for each and every person of the 100 and more participants, the performance was spectacular and the star event of the whole day.

I was deeply involved in the event as my daughter Ruhin was a part of the dance. I have penned a small poem on the mood and atmosphere of the day and am sharing it with all of you.
The tension building
The hours of practice

The days of anticipation

The waiting to dance

Driving them to distraction

The atmosphere electric

With excitement and anticipation

The eagerness, The enthusiasm

of the performers

to dance with the stars

Had reached a crescendo

Outside there was a frenzy

Some coming to see the

little stars dance,

Some to watch the stars

in a friendly match.

The wait was over

The Programme started

With Felicitations, Honors, Welcoming

And the usual announcements

The dancers came

from the little tiny ones,

The teenagers and the ladies

Each one eager to dance

To the rhythm of the beats

The film stars came

Some matching their steps

Some dancing to their own beats

The dance was a big treat

A joyous part of the celebration

Which set the tempo

And hearts beating

For the match that followed

During the practices everyone built some real bonds, new friends and so many beautiful memories which all of us will carry for a long time. A couple of the participants Meeta and Neetu Chabria shared that they will miss the everyday dance practice, getting together each evening, sharing the excitement, the fun, the laughter and the light moments,which just feels so true. Despite being a distant participant I also miss those moments. It was indeed a wonderful experience, all thanks to the sincere efforts of Tejas Udani Gupta, her team and the participants . A big applause for all of them 👏👏.

A Meeting with a Star

A lazy Friday morning

Up bright and happy

For my daughter’s

Dance performance

To dance with the stars

Just the thought of it

filled her with thrill

and excitement

We had lost hope

Of meeting the star

The call came

And we were struck

By its suddenness

Our wishes had become a reality.

We were all excited

There was a rush

A sudden urgency

To quickly dress up and head to the meeting ahead

The awe, The excitement

The sudden rush

I never knew I could act like that

In my mind I was on Cloud Nine

We waited at the lobby

Our hearts fluttering

Stunned by the possibilities

of the meeting ahead

He received us in his room

With a smile and a handshake

Our tongues tied

Was I living a dream

Or was it a reality

After a minute of greetings

A moment of recollecting

The old connection, which was lost

came to a head, of the time spent

By Sonu Sood and Amit

During their college together

Some talk, Some moments

Some pictures we shared

And it was time to say Goodbye

The meeting so fleeting

But still so real

It left us intoxicated and joyous

The euphoria, the high spirit

With the meeting of a star

Made me wonder

Was I covered in Stardust

And floating in the sky above

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019 ✨🎆🌟🎆✨

Jag dhoondiya koi na mila

Har jagah mein dhundati phira

Kabhi idhar Kabhi udhar

Us sukoon ko us pyar ko

Us dil ke armaan ko

Jadd mein niraash ho kein

Baithi toh samajh ayya

Ki jisko mein dhoond rahi hoon

Gali Gali Koocha Koocha

Woh toh mere paas hi hain

Na Jaana pada mujhe Mandir

Na Masjid Na Gurdwara

Na Paaharon pein na Samundar mein

Woh toh chupa hua dil ke kisi kone mein

Ek moti ki tarah

Bas intezaar mein ki kabh Yeh dhundali nazar saaf ho

Toh hum pehchaan paye useh

Hey Everyone Hope you all had a great night celebrating the passing of the old year and bringing in the new. Wishing you all a new year full of new paths, new discoveries loads of good health and surrounded by loads of happiness. In all the mayhem and competitiveness don’t forget to honor who you are, love yourself unconditionally and the godliness within. Happy New Year to all of you

KANHA – LET’S DISSOLVE IN LOVE

Hello! Friends,

I had gone to attend the Heartfulness seminar for the MENA region which was held in Kanha Shantivanam and wanted to share that experience with all of you.

LIFE BEYOND ME

Can I be you

Should I be me

The thought reverberated

I came looking for an answer

I looked I searched

with my eyes wide open

I saw I observed

But couldn’t find the answer

Then I closed my eyes

and looked inside

My heart melted and dissolved

The whole universe

The earth, the bird, the trees

The humans around me

Each one of us dissolved

And became one

There was no you and no me

It was just a feeling of oneness

Each one of us

a reflection of the other

Dissolving merging

No boundaries, No buts

Just that we were all one

Sang the whole universe

The whole experience of coming to Kanha was beyond words, It was just like being surrounded with love and only love given unconditionally. It didn’t matter you were a human or a part of nature, it was just there. It didn’t matter you are part of the system or not, It was just there. You just had to open your heart to experience it. Because the most beautiful experiences happen when you close your eyes and feel.
I am grateful beyond words to have experienced this unconditional love and Daaji for making this beautiful journey happen for me. It is the most wonderful and amazing thing you can do for mankind and this universe and an amazing gift you are giving to the world- LOVE. It’s just beyond words. I bow to you 🙏🙏

A Walk by the Sea

A beautiful day

With so many sights to see

The wind chilly

The sun playing hide and seek

We took a walk by the sea

the water blue and clear

Hand in hand

Listening to the seagulls,

their voices loud and shrill

A ship sailing afar

An otter playing in the waves,

head bobbing up and down

An artist sketching on a bench

lost in his own thoughts

People chatting and talking

Children playing

It was all a sight to see

We sat on a bench

Hearts together

Not a word to say

Our hearts filled with love

A lifetime of sharing

Taking in the beautiful sights

Time stood still

The magic of the moments uncaptured

But engraved in our hearts forever

It was a beautiful day indeed

OPEN YOUR ARMS

My daughter just joined college so an advice to her and all the children who are taking a step out of their cosy nests and starting a new chapter in their lives. Wishing them all the success and happiness and always remember

“You will get there,

but only if you keep going “

Open your arms to this wide world

Embrace life as it comes

Someone can call it pain

but others may think it as learning

Someone can call it pleasure

but others might think it as experience

Each one his own

Keep moving Keep experiencing

Be happy Be gay and smile

Today has gone

Tomorrow will be another beautiful day
