Troubled Teens

The people who enter teenage now have very little experience of the real world. They're just too busy in the virtual world of games, social networking. Most teens prefer keeping in contact with their friends through WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Some of them find it difficult to interact verbally. The biggest advantage is that one can interact with far away cousins and friends that one made in another city. Social media applications also allow picture and video sharing. In addition, one can follow their favourite sportspersons and personalities. The trouble comes when hackers, fake page operators and cyberbullies are involved. People are liable to spending precious “me” and “family” time. A few become lost in this world and can encounter some terrible things. The case in vogue, right now is the Blue Whale game. Many people have been sucked into this suicidal game. What I really want to say is, the use of social media is good, but, excess use can reduce outdoor activi…

Small Moments Matter

Life makes you learn that great lessons are hidden in small moments,
A few words in the heat of the moment hurt,
Some words of encouragement to your stressed friend,
These little things gain significance as days pass, A few words from your mother after bad day at school,
Those hours together at school create lifelong friendships,
Those silly jokes and names created by friends,
Those game played with mates now distant memories, A hug from your closest friend after a bad result
A kiss from your sister for the gift you gave her,
A pat on the back from Dad for your hard work,
These little shows of affection are what we miss when away,

Sports & Life

Sports are life for some of us,
And for some it’s a way of life,
Watching our favourite players break records,
Is a joy that can't be explained,Life is like a game of soccer,
You run, fight, pass and slide,
When at last you score! It feels wonderful! Life is also like a marathon,
You keep running as if there's no tomorrow,
You stretch your energy to a limit,
Till at last, you see the finish line and give it your all!
Finishing it gives you a high! Sometimes, your arrows go astray,
No one hits their goals in one go,
Keep at it, don't give up, but, if you do,
Then you won't achieve what you want, When life serves you bad days,
The reply should be a volley of hope,
One never loses if you keep hoping,
For better days and fighting it out,
When you do that and win, life feels good! Be in the now, fretting about the future,
Crying over the past will not take you ahead!
It is now or never!

People In Your Life

All through life we meet people,
Some with emotions that are fickle,
Some leave memories that make you tearful,
Some will leave you feeling empty and feeble,Some will push you to work harder,
They know what you're made of,
They have faith in your abilities,
Never ever let them down, Some strangers will make your heart their home,
They will make your life nothing less than paradise,
Keep them close to you and love them,
They will put their hand up when your own desert you…No one in the world knows you better than your parents,
They see to it that we never have to face the troubles they did,
Our family shares with us sad and happy moments,
When you drift off the right path you will be helped back onto it…
Never lose hope because you never walk alone…

Finding Your Talents

I have struggled and fought right through my teenage to find out who I really am. There was a lot of self doubt  about whether I could really do anything substantial in life. Funny thing is till the start of August 2016, I had taken the decision to not pursue graduation. Most of my friends advised me that I had done the wrong thing. Even my teachers were of the same opinion. I wasn't ready to agree with them. My reducing energy was reason enough for me to stop studying. For 3 months, I was at home, trying to figure out what to do next. Suddenly, my father told me that I should go to a stock broker's office and learn how money can be put to use for producing more. For a month, I just looked at how everything worked. Soon, I was doing investment myself. By the time 6 months, were over, I had already made about 12-13% profit. I don't have any faith left in the education system that our country has prioritizes memory above each individual’s all round development. Yes, I have c…

Lovely Family

A mother is a child's entire world,
A mother’s love for her children never diminishes,
Even if her children are ready to take on the world,
She continues to be worried about them,
She teaches them all about life & how to live it.
Children look at their father with admiration,
Whatever work he does is to support the family & his children,
Whatever time he has after work is spent with his children,
He always works hard so that his children don't have to,
He teaches his children all about the practical world.
The grandparents have stories & plenty of time to share,
They have seen the world change completely before their eyes,
One will learn from them about how simple things matter,
They emphasize on how small steps can turn into something big,
Their experience of life helps making decisions easy.
We all need love & support in bad times,
When you feel that no one listens only your family does,
They are the only people who love you for what you are…
Cherish them while…

Wait For Me Bro!

We only realize the value of our best friends only when they move apart. When they are near, we are always there with them. When they don't live in the same city, one can suddenly feel distant. But, in this age of social networking and video calling, no one is far away. I'm going to narrate you a story about friendship that defeats time and distance to endure.
Aakash and Varun had lived the past ten years together. As they approached the end of school, they that their ways would part. They had shared many moments. On many occasions they helped each other out. Aakash backed Varun to play football for the school, while he himself captained the school in cricket. Many times, both endured punishments together.
pMany people tried to make their friendship sour, especially the bullies. Even the rumour creating gang of girls which irritated everyone. They had never let ego come in between.They always had the back of each other. The prospect of being separated in pursuit of their caree…

Magical Rain

Black clouds close out the sun’s hot rays,
The hot Earth waits for the cool water,
It looks as if the sky sheds tears for the Earth,
The time nears for Earth’s rebirth. The clouds opens the taps wetting the Earth,
Seeing that all my sorrows get washed away,
I look at kids running onto the street to play,
The wet smell of the Earth refreshes me. Rain drives away dust and pollution cleaning air
Cooling the wind & our minds too,
Rain makes the surroundings magically green,
Making our creativity reach heights unforeseen.

Love Yourself First

When all seems lost and you feel really low,
Remember God helps those who help themselves,
When life is tough and problems give blow upon blow,
The journey to happiness starts when we love ourselves.
When people you value the most hurt you,
You will feel the world you love is finished,
Don't lose hope friends as no damage is permanent,
Those who have hurt you won't go unpunished.
There will be days that change your attitude,
There will be days where you come up short,
There will be days when you'll be in solitude,
Loving yourself and others will be your support,
Always be yourself with everyone you care about,
They need to know who you really are,
As these people will be with you throughout,
Only trusting your talent & instincts will take you far.

Books Tell Different Stories

I look at new books smelling adventure, I look forward to stories celebrating bravery, The magic that words create makes you surrender, Page after page being a knowledge treasury.
On a night that is hot and sweltering, A great book is a thing that calms the soul, On a rainy night with thunder & lightning, A good book guides you through storms of the soul.
Books silently make a place in our hearts, By taking the identity of those who created them, Books create three dimensional pictures with words, They light fires of hope in wounded souls.
You will find stories of love and friendship, Stories full of intrigue, suspense and mystery, There’s no shortage of those that preach honesty & wisdom, Stories that ignite our spirit and will to do good.
Books are friends who have voices not bodies, They take away all pain, trouble & worries, Talking about great men, their sacrifices and deeds, They create the best of mankind.
