Rebirth of a Rebel

with 8 comments

The rebel and his army

He looked down onto the wet earth,
The  ashes  still  warm on  the  pyre,
A  glance  with neglect   and  dearth
At his rebel ideas  razing in the  fire.

As   numbness   bloated  the   hollow  fog
And vapours condensed on glasses moist,
He’s  proud   for  that   mighty   prologue
And  of the fearless  opinions  he  voiced.

– Each one of us has two lives – one where we live and the other where our ideas live. Most of us are not passionate enough to contribute significantly to the second part. The Rebel lives on, dormant in each one of us, without ever realizing its power to put forth new ideas and inspiration for the next generation.

– This poem is a toast to all those Bloggers and Activists who are voicing their opinions and trying to educate the masses.

He looked down onto the wet earth,

The  ashes  still  warm  on  the  pyre,

A  glance  with neglect   and  dearth

At his rebel ideas  razing in the  fire.

As   numbness  bloated  the   hollow  fog

And vapours condensed on glasses moist,

He’s   proud   for  that   mighty   prologue

And  of the fearless  opinions  he  voiced.

Back again…

with 2 comments

I am back again. Got lost in some work over the past weekend and didn’t have time for a post. Being back on the blog-o-sphere feels so good. And the reverse writer’s block that I described earlier has mostly vanished, and I am trying to rub off the remaining roughness. I made a visit to NID(National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad) this weekend, and the experience was simply amazing. They were people just out of this world, each immersed in their own world of creativity, so warming yet so far away; a place where creativity takes its birth. Some of our greatest designers are from this famed institute, an institute which is well appreciated by both the corporate world as well as the greatest thinkers and innovators of our times.

The first entry into NID shook me. Just infront of the main entrance, Read the rest of this entry »

Far from the madding crowd…

leave a comment »

After some 16 years, we made a short trip away from the daily chores of  our household. A short trip indeed – 3 days only – but no doubt one of the most soothing and charming journeys ever. It was quite a trip with no proper planning at all – not knowing how to go where we should be heading next.
We started off from Kolkata on the 31st morning for Maithon – one of the most beautiful and calming place I had ever seen. Maithon, located on the banks of river Barakar, is the home of one of the most successful projects of India and  the Damodar Valley Corporation’s first successful one. The chilling cold splash of waves against the rocks, the shivery pinching of the cold winds against our faces and the beautiful scenery – it all made for a perfect way Read the rest of this entry »

Independence Day — Taken for Granted

with 8 comments

Independence Day — a day to celebrate freedom — freedom from the chains; freedom from the shutterrs; freedom from the clutters of mind, of physical bondage, of intellectuals, of foolishness; freedom from the daily rubbings of life. Its a day to remember the days of struggle — the struggles of freedom fighters , the struggle of blacks against whites, the struggle of change against stability, the struggle of selflessness against material possessions, the struggle of insecurity against complacency — its a day to remember all our strife and combat against the unwanted.
But how many of us have taken charge and faced reality boldly? How many of us have done something for the society? Leave behind society, have we ever looked into our own self? How many of today’s youth have foregone sleep to watch the flag-hosting ceremony? How many of us have sung the National Anthem? How many have celebrated Independence Day from the heart? Its a shame to us and a shame for every Indian that we cannot even respect the Flag atleast once a year. And you ask these questions and the answer you get is ” I need not celebrate Independence on this one day … I feel it from the heart.” .. Be ashamed. Ask yourself. You have not spared few minutes of yours respecting the Flag this one day…how are you expected to respect it for the whole life!
Independence is taken for granted. Showing pride in the country’s biggest event has taken a back seat. Wake up my friend! Do something this day! Do something to change yourselves. Do something to change your surrounding. Look beyond the narrow scope of your life into the outside world. Write scraps to your friends. Write a blog! Tweet! Upload a video! Send an ecard to your nearest ones. Take pride in this day and show every other Indian what you can do! Shake away the lethatgy and show them the meaning of perseverance! Show the world that Indians are not to be taken lightly. Create a mass movement to bring out the hidden sense of belongingness and use it to fire up the hearts of every Indian. Be the change to bring the change.

This day, we take pledge to shake up the dormant Indian in each one of us, to bring to life the feelings of attachment to our holy Mother, to share this inner sense of cheerfulness with all the weak souls, to evoke real freedom from this day onwards.

We march on…we march on… will you come?
