My Collections

Today I met a person who collected rosaries (not literally met, I saw him on television).He collected different types of rosaries starting from his grandfather. It was a journey, which he elaborted so vividly, that each had a unique place in his heart with a story to tell. So while I was hearing it, I felt odd because I had no collection to boast of or did I? This made me thinking. Everyone had some sort of collection, stamps, coins, antiques, tea pots, precious stones, pictures, paintings, books, etc. Then I came to think of myself, what's wrong with me? I have something missing as not to feel collecting something. Then I knew why? There was a time when I had stamp collection, medal collection, coin collection & 3D card collection and I did it with such vigour that I had a vast collection, but all of it was taken from me, either by my siblings, friends & neighbours. You know, when we have to give what we have collected just like that, without anything to hold, except tha

How Smart

Today while I was in church, I was lucky to get a place exactly under the fan. So I was happy and very much spiritual. Now you might be thinking why I am saying all these. Its just that I heard the Bible reading. Oops Sorry!!! I know, your brows are raised, but its true. So after the reading, we had the prayer of Faith (I believe in God....). For me that prayer has a special significance. Its like a Personal Anthem. I feel very proud of it when I recite. So I was reciting it from the very bottom of my heart with great passion and there is a part where it states that "I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary." At that time, something struck me, something like an opening of a new information and a new message came to me. Adam was born without any parent. He was given life by Creator alone, for a purpose to be united with God. He just blew away all of that and Jesus was also born in the same way, created

Faithless World

There is one sad thing that hogs everyone’s life at one point or other, mistrust. I had been in that brunt for many a times that I have lost count. You might ask, how? Well, I was a boarder from very small, which means from kindergartren. You know, it was an age, when my things became public property. I didn’t have any stationery to say as my own. I had to beg every other hour for a pencil or eraser or a sharpener. And the result, Meena has nothing. I didn’t mind, until when trouble started brewing when others too lost their things. If someone lose something they immediately put the blame on me. And I a kindergarten student had only one answer, “ I didn’t take.” It was true. I cannot keep my own things, then how can I manage to keep other’s things. Anyway, no one believed except my dad, who said, “Whatever you say, I believe because you are my blood.” Well, I thought he was meaning the father – daughter relationship. But in fact, it was just something out of everyones’ comprehensio

The Line Of Control

These days I am just horded with different types of love, like mother’s love, friend’s love, wife’s love, husband’s love, child’s love, teacher’s love, etc....etc.... Do you think, there is any wrong with this type of love? I do not think so. And we all do have love affairs in different categories, for example, I do have friends, I have my parents, grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunts, neighbours and my brother, I am a teacher, I have my own kids and a husband. So I have been in varied form of love affairs. So does that mean, I am a whore (prostitute)? No. Yes, You are right. We do not become a whore if we love people around us. In actual fact, you are very lucky, if you are capable of loving someone. Whenever I think of love, the first thing that comes to mind is, Charles Dicken’s, Uncle Scrooge. I felt like smashing his face when he used to say “Humbug”. That is how we would be, if we are unable to love. So do not underestimate the power of love. Now, when I say, you should
