Shattered dreams!!

Fancy cars speeding in every direction,

How the rich kids make an impression!

Extravagance and enjoyment are their rights,

There are no resentments and no fights.

But look at those children so different, I pray,

Those whose childhood has been snatched away…

See their tender hands loading coals on the truck,

Hands that are thin and covered in muck.

Their black grimy faces where their hopes are dying,

Their sunken eyes show they’re tired of crying.

Their cuts and bruises are far from healing,

Their senses are numb; they have no feeling.

Those hands that are meant for study and play

Should they be working and labouring all day?

Loved and protected, filled with laughter wild,

Should this not be the profile of a child?

They gaze longingly at the children’s park,

And pray that God should end their dark.

And pull them out from those mires of griefs,

For those circumstances are their childhood’s thieves!!

As I get up to walk back alone,

My pain is deep, it makes me groan…

Tears fill my eyes, my conscience screams,

To see those rough hands and shattered dreams…..

Thanks πŸ™‚

Lyrics Challenge – 3 days Quotes Challenge – Day 3

Big thanks to A.J. of Tokens of Expression for nominating me for this challenge. Thanks for the recognition I really enjoyed this challenge ❀ check out her blog here


Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post one quote (song lyric) each day for three days.
  3. Nominate three people.

When you ask me to post a song lyric, its obviously much more than just a quote and honestly, there are so many beautiful songs with such heart warming and meaningful lyrics that its almost next to impossible to choose just one….

But I am sharing with all of you here, one of my personal favourite song lyrics.

Give me some sunshine,

Give me some rain,

Give me another chance,

I wanna grow up once again………..

Bachpan to gaya,

Jawani bhi gayi,

Ek pal to ab hame,

Jeene do, jeene do…..

Saari umra hum,

Mar mar k jee liye,

Ek pal to ab hume,

Jeene do, jeene do….!!!!!


Translation of the second paragraph:

My childhood days are over,

My youth has gone away,

Let me have peace for a moment at least,

Let me LIVE my life now…

All my life, through all my ages,

I have Survived and not Lived,

Now give me a moment to rest and enjoy,

Let me really LIVE my life now…..!!!!


This song is from the Bollywood movie 3 Idiots.

Its a wonderful movie and conveys a deep message through it’s songs’ lyrics…. It beckons the students not to run after marks but to run after knowledge. Life is not about mugging up answers and securing high grades in exams, it’s not about materialistic success, its about your quest for knowledge, your understanding of practical things, your contribution towards society and most importantly, life is about LIVING it, about enjoying it to the fullest and about doing things which give you happiness and satisfaction!!!

In this song, it is said that all our life we are working tirelessly, running in a race to clear competitions. From our childhood we are taught to strive for good marks, then admission in a good university / college, then strive for a good job (with high salary) better future, status in society, name, fame, money and what not!!!!!!! The list goes on and we keep striving till our last breath….

But, the minute we die, nothing remains!! What is left is our memories, our good name, and the happiness and satisfaction we achieve while LIVING life…!!! πŸ™‚ Hence, we are asked to take out time for ourselves, to rest, to enjoy and to LIVE!!!! πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

My nominees:

  • Pia Majumdar of Finally Unchained
  • Abhi
  • Jhavinder of Fun And Factz 4 U
  • Pavan Athreyas

Have a nice day πŸ™‚

A Good News to Share!!

Hello everyone!! Hope you are doing well πŸ™‚

I have something to share with you all. I had mentioned this in one of my award posts and here I’ll elaborate on this..!!!

I had recently written the IOEL exam and I had mentioned that I had bagged the gold medal, but there’s another surprise….guess what?? My board results were out, and that very evening the press reporters and journalists visited my house……!!!!

And I featured in a T.V. interview!!! There was a bright smile on my parents’ face when they saw my picture (along with theirs) in the morning newspapers and my interview on the news channel (though State news and not the National news channel!!).

I am so, so happy!! I can’t express it. Not because of my results but because of the fact that I could match my parents’ expectations, I could fulfill their wish and could be the reason behind that BIG smile on their face!!

When our relatives, friends and my parents’ colleagues and acquaintances congratulated us, I could see tears in my father’s eyes (my mother was already in tears)…… Later my father advised me to take this as an inspiration for future challenges, forthcoming successes but to always remember my roots. He asked me to celebrate my success but not to ignore my duties, to fly high in the sky but to keep my feet firmly fixed on the ground like the roots of a tall tree that support its whole existence…

#LoveYouDad

BTW let us go into flashback!

The first time I had written the IOEL (International Olympiad of English Language) was in 2014. Here’s the result:

  • School rank : 1st
  • State rank : 1st
  • International rank : 154

Gosh!!! Even I couldn’t believe it when I saw the result. Thanks to my parents, and all my teachers for their support, encouragement and motivation. πŸ™‚

And yes, thanks to WordPress for improving my vocabulary, my writing skills and my knowledge about this language πŸ™‚

Thanks to all my readers and fellow bloggers for your valuable comments and feedback πŸ™‚

Have a nice day πŸ™‚

One of the most important part of school life is friends. So today’s post is dedicated to all those wonderful beings who have a great impact on our life: {Smile please, dear friend!! πŸ™‚ }

For those who don’t understand Hindi, Dhakkan is used as a pun. It means cap and its also used as a synonym for idiot!!
