Voices that never change

Some childhood memories are just so special.. refreshing us like a cool puff of air on a cloudy night…
& our backyard fleetingly shining bright in the moonlight….
.
I often remember one advertisement, quite popular in our adolescent days:
.
कल भी, आज भी, कल भी..
इन याढों का सफर तो रुके न कभी..

कल भी, आज भी, कल भी..
कुछ रिश्ते बदलते नहीं हैं कभी...

So true…Some memories can never fade away..
For they’re surely from Heavens..
.
.
Wrapped in so many tacit sacrifices by our dear ones..
No wonder, we often find ourselves inarticulate while expressing those innermost thoughts to those who gave us life .*.
.
.

Not only love, but also the intrinsic fears of human mind outline the voices that keep on echoing time to time..
.

The strugglers & the absorbers, the betrayed & the betrayers, the givers & the takers, all characters at some point of time feel the same unrest, while bowling themselves in and out of a campaign targeted at understanding that the worldly selfish desires can never be satiated ..
.
.

In the current race for the White House , we can see both the Democratic and Republican candidates moving out by their own choice..why..because they never felt the heat to win from inside..
.

The unrest in Kenya is another example which clearly demonstrates that no degree of threat can conquer the brusquely injured souls seeking justice.
.

If a child has grown as a loser in most of the games he played with his siblings, there is a very high probability that he finds it difficult to face this competitive world..
.

Similarly if a child has grown in a daring atmosphere, he’ll always be inspired enough to win silver cups..and the limitless spirit in him will always come to his rescue whenever in doubt.. & this pattern will be repeated by so many generations to follow..!
.
.

Resonating with the similar vibes, here is a beautiful sonnet by Nicholas Gordon:

Although a daughter, I write this as a mother.
We're both mothers now, of child-daughters:
You, a grandmother forced to be a mother,
And I, a widow, alone with my fatherless daughter.
Death has thus shaped both our lives in ways
We would not have chosen. Yet life is still the bright,
Painfully lovely thing it was always:
Our children like dancers on a dark, splendid night,
Needing our loves as I needed yours; your love
The same song as ever, a lullaby I remember
So well from my time in your arms. We move
In slow spirals towards the stars. September
Has weeks like June, yet is closer to the fall.
Love has no answers, yet its beauty answers all.

Your post made me dwell into the past. I was enjoying it, but had to come back for work. May be it needs another reading in the evening.

Heart-touching and beautiful sonnet. Pooja, it seems you are going philosophical. Is it another life-guru in the making? ;)

Hiii Sandy,

Thanks for the encouraging words..!
I gues you're quite right..I am going too philosphical..not good at this age :-))

Probably time to catch latest movies..
Did you see "I'm the Legend.."
Will Smith must be at his best!

This post is also inspired by the book i've been reading nowadays:

My Mother/My self : Nancy Friday


Good Day!
Happy February!!

Sandy said...

Hmm... the cause of concern is the book, you must be reading Eric Segal at this age ;) I'm the Legend - pending for this weekend... Still, I am more interested in Tom & Jerry :D

pilot-pooja said...

Hmm..that sounds interesting Sandy!

I used to read Eric Segal in my teen days..!
Guess what..I read Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta in my Christmas hols..!

I too have revived my interest in Cartoon networks these days..Courtesy..German channels here which i'm unable to decode..)


Cartoon series is still earier to decode!!

Happy Weekend..
Heard Delhi is quite cold these days!

pilot-pooja said...

You're quite right, we hardly get enough time to blog..

Hey Sandy, which all movies did you watch on the weekend..Giving very innovative ideas!!

Jungle Mom said...

I am wondering what 'pilot-pooja' means?

pilot-pooja said...

Belated Happy Birthday dear Jungle-Mom..
It's indeed an honour knowing you!!

Many of my friends have often asked me this question..

The prefix "Pilot" is an effort to let myself peep into the kaleidoscope of my thoughts, my dreams, my likes & dislikes..

Sometimes we fail to express our feelings to people we relish the most..
Sometimes we just don't get a second chance to say what we always wished to..!

Sometimes we are left smiling alone..After meeting someone,the one we always had a desire to know..

Sometimes we want to thank some souls for making us a part of their thoughts..

Sometimes we just want to figure out the much needed strength & honesty to move ahead..

My Thoughts when penned down on my blog give me all this..& perhaps much more..
It gives me the strength to fly with my wings..my thoughts...

I really want to thank all of you..my dear blogging friends,,for making this beautiful dream of mine a successful one..
& i want to wish a similar heart-rending beautiful feeling to all my blogging friends..

Thanks a lot!!

Sandy said...

I am really surprised and mesmerized by the beautiful meaning you have inculcated. Way to go... hats off to you!

You have left me floating in my own thoughts, many of which I would love to blog, but just don't for reasons best known to my heart. I find some inspiration to pen those out.

And the only movie worth mentioning would be Alex & Emma, but that has nothing to relate to my great ideas.

pilot-pooja said...

You inspire me too Sandy..Ur dedication to work is awesome, just like your thoughts..!

Hey i'll explore a bit on this movie for sure!

Sandy said...

Thanks for the very kind words.
