If I have to say one phrase that represents India in my mind, it is this – “Tryst with Destiny”. The fight for independence and the subsequent events hold a prominent part in the history of India. History buffs or those older, who know the significance of this phrase will know it as the speech that was delivered by Nehru on the eve of India’s independence.
“Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now that time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.”
Wake up to a fresh morning
To make the dreams of the night
Come to light.
Has there been any morning
Which did not bring fresh tidings
A new perspective to the days begone.
When boundaries need to be crossed
When ceilings are to be broken
When a new path needs to be chartered.
When life throws new challenges
At a time when all one wants to do
Is to hang up the boots and retire.
There is a small corner
In the deep recess of my heart
A lonely place that is only known to me. Continue reading

True to his name

The adage that best things in life are free is really true when you experience the prasadam served at Tirumala. It is not a meal which does not only feed the body, it also feeds the soul. When one can see beyond the teaming masses of people spilling through every way possible to have a sight for a split second of the Almighty. The sight of the belief, that comes from every devotee is palpable.
Create memories for that time
When no demands are made on our time.
A time that was once so precious
That every second treasured
Counted and mattered.
The many demands of job
The million little things
That needed to be done.
