Have We Changed or Is It Our Perception?

It is often said that people change as they grow; but is it actually true?

When we are kids, nothing has any effect on us. We are like revolutionaries; we do what we desire without caring about what anyone would think of us. And if anybody thought they could change us, well we showed them that they shouldn't wish for stars. You tell us something not to do, and we the first thing we did was bite the forbidden apple. The only person we ever listened to was the one we were scared of; or the one who we idolized. We were happy in our own world; and yes, it was our
own world, our own rules and our own society!

But then something really tragic happened - we grew up! Suddenly we were too big for our own world. The rules (or no rules) that governed us became irrational. Our perception changed; rather, it died!

Where we never gave a second thought about doing anything, now we have started thinking about everything. Where we were scared of few people, now we are scared of everyone. Where we
looked at the world with our own eyes, now we were looking at the world from the society's eyes.

Though I know there are still people who have not changed, and it is they are either called revolutionary or mad. They live in the same world as everybody, they grew up in the same society
learning from the same books. So what is the difference? Are they correct in not changing their perception?

These revolutionaries are the one's that make a mark on the stone. And they are the one's idolized by everyone, because they decided to follow their own path without worrying about what others would think and say.

I feel that no one changes with time. They are still the same from inside, its just that they wear a character which they feel is most acceptable by the society. Well to those, stop, give it a thought, because you have brains; is your perception of world so screwed?

Chal Daaru Peete Hai!

Samay se chura kar kuchh waqt,
Zindagi jeete hai.
Chal daaru peete hai...

Wo sapno ki chadar jo fat gayi hai,
Nashe me hi sahi,
Aaj usko seete hai,
Chal daaru peete hai...

Usko bata do ki ab aur intezar nahi uska,

Uske intezar me na jane kitne din, mahine, saal bus yun hi beete hai,
Chal daru peete hai...

Zindagi me hasil karne the jo mukaam, sharab k nashe me hi sahi,
Aaj unhe jeete hai...
Chal daru peete hai...

Gamon Ko chipa kar khusiyan batein
Chehare pe hasi ka ek aur nakab pahne..
Chal daru pite hai....

Yaadon ki baarat me khuch pal bitate hain
Thoda thoda yaad kartein hain...
Chal daru pite hain...

Khuch pal ke liye he sahi 
Samay ko dokha detein hai.
Chal daru piten hain

Shelters for Animals

The festival of 'Holi' just ended. In one of the local newspapers I read an article about a group of youngsters urging people to allow stray dogs to live in house compounds and with the help of some locals, they were also building make-shift shelter homes. That was a really noble gesture because colors used in 'Holi' can harm animals.

That led me to think, that when one festival can make people build animal shelters, then why don't we actually do so permanently. Now I might be ignorant and there might be some already in place. But when I see a stray dog, it makes confirms my notion.

Recently, people have become quite active about animal rights, we have come a long way from making fun and jokes on 'Maenka Gandhi' for being so active in support of animals to actually starting pledges and NGO's to protect them. But still, there is dearth of good shelter homes for stray animals.

It is time we started thinking about building proper care homes where stray an…

Hum Mile Kyu!

Hum bichde kyu, mile kyu
Teri yaado ka karwa mere saath rehta hai kyu
Janejaana yeh toh bata, yeh do pal ka rishta hum ne rakha hi kyu
Mein tujhe apnaya apna samajhkar
Esi kya katha hui, jo humse tu rooth gayi yu
Socha tha zindagi ki mushkilo ko nibhaenge milke
Fir ek galti se hum rukhe hue hai kyu
Hum mile kyu bichde hai kyu?
