Let the seed be a seed

They say no one should be self-complacent; that one should keep asking for more, keep striving for more. It is, of course, said on a positive note so that one can have a healthy development, a better growth. 

But since there is no universal rule to stick to and also because a writer can poke her nose into like anything, may be once in a while, you should be self-complacent; that staying happy and content in having what you already have can be good for your health. May be for once in a while, having the sight of a seed is enough, no one should bury it, water it and allow it to grow into something else. The seed might be there because it is meant to be only a seed and it should not turn into a flower or a leaf, nor into a big entity such as a tree. If the seed is not getting nurtured, it may not slow its growth or cause it to die. If it remains what it is then may be...the life in it will stay intact forever, away from this world's prying eyes, curious eyes unnecessarily trying to classify it with meaningless species and sub-species. The seed, since it is in a pure however a defenseless state, has its own little world hidden inside. It has the energy of the sun to nourish a giant planet, it contains the life required to feel the magic, it carries a womb within that has the ability to keep nourishing itself. As a seed, it is in the most beautiful and purest form.

But what if it does not want to stay what it is? What if it wants to grow into something else? What if it stops being self-complacent? In favorable conditions, it will grow, yes. It will turn into a beautiful flower one day, may be a big thick tree too. The thing which was almost a small collection of a few pollen grains earlier is now the bearer of hundreds of flowers and millions of grains. It sees nothing but its growth...good healthy growth and that is now what makes it happy. Not the sainthood of complacency where it has the universe by staying just as a tiny seed. It started asking to show its universe and at the end, gets cut or may be burned in some violence or may be gets uprooted because of some catastrophe. This is the price a seed pays for asking more, for stopping to be self-complacent. Infertility is the price that the seed has to pay now. It has no more a universe, nor the happiness. As a tree, it sure has grown but such growth is only a mark of degradation, not the positive development it had expected.

You see, if the seed could be capable enough to handle its uniqueness and its brilliance, it would have sustained the yearning of growth, the relentless longing for more happiness, the cravings for the unexpected. It only needed to be self-complacent.

We all are the nurturers. We start watering and nourishing the seed we get never realizing the fact that may be...may be we should let the seed only a seed. It is meant for that only! Because the moment you start asking for sun, you will also lose the sky full of stars.

Aspects of a work out

Finding the right kind of work out is quintessential for your fitness regime. Not everyone has the same cup of tea when it comes to melt calories and congeal the fitness. Therefore, if you are thinking of going for a fitness regime upfront or are already enrolled for one but getting supremely bored, chew on the key points below to get a better digestive form of what work out may work best for you. Some key aspects are given just to remind you how they are in perfect alliance with your chosen work out.

Body type and target areas 
First of all, learn your body type. There are few body types like Apple, Pear, Hour glass etc. Apple means your upper body is wider than your lower; Pear body type is just the opposite means lower is wider than the upper body parts; Hour glass figure is usually considered ideal as it contains the same ratio of chest and hip while teetering a lean waistline.



Then ponder on the areas that really sucks for you. If your waist line resembles a room size, you really…

Why do we need occasions like Mother's Day?

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in this world. Today is a special day for mothers and after wishing my own, I feel great. Mummy did not know today is her day and she was simply surprised when I wished her. She wished me back and then we chatted for a little more while before we hung up.


But before calling her, something else had happened. I was calling her but she was busy somewhere for incessant 20 minutes talking to someone else. Finally I called my father and informed about it's Mother's Day today. He chuckled and wished me. Then he asked,

"Who has made days like Mother's day, Father's day etc.? Do we really need such occasions?"

I laughed. Comments similar to this often flow my way nonetheless I replied to him.


"No. Actually we really don't need such days but if dedicating one day especially to our loved ones, we can shower some extra pounds of love, affection, care and gifts, there is no harm in celebrating them. For the rest of th…

A remarkable tribute by Amitach Bachchan for Nirbhaya

Today I read a poem written by legendary Amitach Bachchan. He has dedicated this to the Delhi rape victim (on Dec. 16th 2012). When I start reading it, I couldn't stop myself completing it. It is so remarkable and sublime that literally it will make a vortex into your brain with a dot at its end :: Nirbhaya's (Real name :: Jyoti Singh) pleas and pains.

I am gonna share this poem on my blog to make it as an inseparable part so that I won't have to juggle to search it again.




Maa bohot dard sah kar..
