The day is a generous reminder to all of us that we need to remember and respect our teachers. Teachers are generous.They are kind, selfless, guides and probably the best face of humanity. I have learned so many things from them right from my childhood which I am going to share. This will be a tribute to my beloved teachers because I am still their student. A heartfelt wish surely crosses the barriers and touches the person it is intended to.
Be flexible and fun
This quality I learnt from my Punjabi teacher, Miss Harjeet Kaur (now she is married), when I was in my middle school. She was slender, beautiful and her voice was very sweet. We all loved her a lot not only because she was a great teacher but also because she was flexible with her schedules. Sometimes she let us take breaks from studies and played games with us like Antakshari or Joke time. She was the first person to tell me that I sing good. That I had the sweetest voice in the class. I still savor tha…
A simple word to say but a strong quality to work upon. If developed in a positive manner, a bless but if in negative concoction, can be extremely harmful. Perspective is the way/attitude to perceive things and process them as per your thoughts and intuitions; things that may look or sound otherwise to people.
In last few days I have tried to improve my perspective regarding few things and it helps. It really helps. Not because I was at loss but just like that. Trying new things is better than to stay stubborn with yourself. Peace is the main product of the process. Plus, you get more time to focus on your priority check list like I do. I get more time and space for my things like writing, reading or other tasks. It germinates some extra happiness. And more you are happy, more you are productive. Therefore, it is always wise to produce healthy, positive and improved ways of seeing/analyzing things around.
You may already have an improved perspective but seeing from the other side of …
Not free like a bird,
Not soft as a flower, I am one of a kind
Knows no comparison,
Whether I sulk,
Or live unwind.
I am warm by choice,
Can be cold like ice; I am one of a kind
Don't judge me,
Don't fix me,
I have a working mind.
Treat me as you like,
But v'll never be alike; I am one of a kind
I am the sky,
I am the ground,
Limitless, and with spine.
Terms and conditions,
Are defined by me; I am one of a kind
Smooth, ruthless, smart, and sultry,
I am no better than Me,
But always better than the mankind.

वक़्त कभी एक सा नहीं रहता,
एक नदी की तरह चपल,
तो कभी किनारों सा स्थिर नही होता।
यूँ तो हमने कुछ ऐसी ख्वाहिशें ना रखीं,
यूँ तो हमने कुछ बड़े सपने ना देखे,
फिर भी वक़्त के सूक्ष्म थपेड़ों को,
कितनी ही बारीकियों से,
ज़िन्दगी के स्वच्छ निर्मल आईने में,
ना चाहते हुए भी देखा।
गहनता के शब्दकोष में,
गंभीरता के समावेश में,
गर देखो तो ये थपेड़े नर्म किरणों सी हैं।
अपनी निरंतर सी बहती खुशगवार गर्माहट से,
बहुत कुछ सिखा जाने की समझ है इनमे।
अब बस देर है तो उन जंग लगे ,
कोनों में छुपे दरवाज़ों को खोलने की,
अब बस देर है तो खुद को उन किरणों से सरोबार करने की।
