Road we knowingly Mis-take (Poem)

Posted by Disha Singh on September 29, 2018
What kind of people are we,

We have a strong will but then we let it be.

We know this is not the road we like to take

But still knowingly we make this mistake.

We have friends with dead soul

We have empty laughters and hearts with hole.

The words ‘we are there for you’ is so materialistic,

That I have to confess I’ve become pessimistic!

Let Go!

Posted by Disha Singh on November 7, 2016
No wonder this is a very small phrase but it holds lot of weightage in life. 

Since some last 2 months I’m a happy person and it is possible to these two magically words – Let Go!

After lot of struggle, fights and endless daunting thoughts… now I handle stuff that always slammed my face. 

And it happened when this stuff got so worse that there was no room for further discussions. That very time My soul told me let these things go. Kill the past and future, just be in present to enjoy NOW. Now which is beautiful and where I am great by myself.

I found a great companion within myself. The solitude was encouraging and was helpful to take care of myself. 

Remember nothing change for always unless you keep putting efforts to maintain it.

Words may lack!

Posted by Disha Singh on August 21, 2016
 

Many a times we use so many words to explain our heart but have you ever noticed that these words actually kill your feelings…

Yes, Barthes (or Derrida) right understood the “Death of the Author” and for me … I just understood that they meant words will always kill the intensity of feelings. When we frame words they are influenced by our environment i.e. ethics, how other will feel, our personality, our society, and many more elements which will surely change what ultimately comes out of your pen or mouth.

Nobody apart from you will ever know what is going on inside your mind and heart unless you try to put them in words and words will always fail you…

Relax keep calm and stop making people understand how you feel. Those who are for you will surely know themselves.

Remember actions speaks louder than words!

A confession by an Employer

Posted by Disha Singh on February 28, 2016
Employers looking outside window
Employers looking outside window…

Employer… Boss… are the names which are supposed to be hated for any reason . No matter how reasonable one is but their employees will surely find a reason to unlike them….

Today, I was sitting ideal and sipping a cup of coffee while a line of my another friend stroke my mind, he said “You do anything but the employees will never think of you ever when they get an alluring opportunity…” In my case, I argued with words but could not conquer the battle.

That conversation forced me to write this blog as an confession how it feels to be an employer. An employer like us is someone whose world revolve around his employees they are worried about the health, workload, mental state, comfort, happiness, and anything that hits their employees life. We want to spread happiness and it’s a great feeling to be able to provide employment to someone and give them the opportunity to earn a living. We care but we forget that their is only one bond here and that is monetary!

The conversation with my friend started when I discussed how did that day pass… and how one employee of mine, with whom we stood in his thick and thin and many a times we gave money from our own pocket so that he can be out of the trouble, conveyed that he can will leave (not resign) the job… and reason was that he had recently got a hike. This is not this year but a tantrum of every year. Earlier we revised the scale in order to satisfy him as he was doing his duties very nicely. But this year the work quality has been deteriorating… that day the decision was firm! And then there was a long discussion of he encouraging co-worker to leave the job blah… blah…blah!

Not going deep, into the many other incidences, this was an awakening slap on our face and a proof of my friend’s words.

But still somewhere in my heart I do not fully agree with my friend’s quote, but yeah I cannot totally ignore it too.

26 best things from the 90s that will bring smile to your face

Posted by Varun Sharma on February 15, 2015
No matter how successful you may have become in your late twenties and early thirties, but that childhood in the 90s is something that you will always long for. Being a kid in the 90s was fun; it was more than Android and iOS. Playing pittu was favorite pastimes in recess during school hours, while playing cricket or chatting with friends over a game of carom board was the hide out from studies back home. If you are a 90’s Indian Kid, here are twenty-five things that will make you smile and feel nostalgic all the way.

1. Parle-G was a staple diet. It was the first thing you had with a glass of milk, and carried to school.

3. A vital part of your school bag arsenal, the Milton water bottles always played a handy role in fights too.

En route into my Memory Lane

The Days were bright and sunny
The lives were full and funny
There were no smiles but carefree laughter
The days passed playing and nights slipped into sound slumber
No worries, no pain
At that we had was mere gain

The roads are same
The heart is same
But today what has changed is my Name!

My eyes are always trying to scan my surrounding
For a glimpse of you ….

Love – How to be like Thee…

Posted by Varun Sharma on February 23, 2014
I know the love means happiness
I know the love means freedom
I also know the love means understanding

Thou learned so much…
Never we miss a chance to be selfish!
To put restriction, to do this or not to do that
To hurt thy love with thy piercing words
Which penetrate the heart to make it bleed

Still after these words, we sit to say
Darling ‘I Love You’
And my life is nothing without you
But I cannot assure when will I hurt you again

But, Yes your love for me always make me feel trivial
As I try to be jovial
But always fails to be Imperial…

Wish!

Posted by Disha Singh on February 15, 2014

Wish you understood me better as a person I am…
Wish I dreamt not so high and stand where today I am…
And not be judgmental on every act of your
Wish the day didn’t pour
And heart din get sour
I need no stars but some symbolic flowers

To do and to explain why not done
Are two poles of the earth
On which we stand to see Sun from each point together

The child heart lurking inside me
Wants to be pampered, cared and loved
To the bosom of my mother…

Wish I can grow up never
And live like a child forever n forever….!
