I gaze up at the sky,
And heave a soft sigh,
As I see the stars shining bright,
Flooding the sky with light,
Hundreds of them, up so high,
I can’t count them, even though I try,
These dazzling, shimmering lights,
Look so beautiful in the night,
As I lie on the grass, taking it all in,
Watching the stars twinkle and gleam.
Bharat Mata ki Jai!
I was getting into an artsy mood which is the best kind of mood to be in, as it gets my creative juices flowing, I sat down on the table and just started making something abstract. I took the colours green and purple and a little bit of blue and made lines and free flowing brush strokes going the opposite way and mixing all those colours, turning them into kind of grey. I broke from my artsy mood and asked myself, now look what you have gone and done, the painting is ruined! Now what to do? I shook my head a few times and took a deep breath and told myself it isn’t ruined just think of something creative and it will turn this into a masterpiece. I remind myself time to time of what mako said in her video of mandala; Makoccino is a YouTube channel that has painting and Diy tutorials.
This is what she said: We often stress ourselves over the end result of our painting or any work, not enjoying the process of the painting and ruining it in that process. We should not stress on the end result but the process of making it. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece it is a work of mind and creativity. And the most important thing is you enjoy what you are doing. (I changed her words when I tell myself but the thought is the same). Anyway, I let my painting dry and then took a marker and started drawing a half mandala. I didn’t made it to be exact and it was a little crooked on one side. But I didn’t care and then went ahead and created some spirals and doodled in them and created this painting. I loved it and told myself: didn’t I tell you? Don’t, I repeat don’t care about anything and let your creative juices flow.
Ps: In case you are wondering, this is exactly what mako said:
‘That we shouldn’t focus too much on the end result, but instead, we should focus on the process. Similar to life, we should just enjoy it and live to the fullest instead of worrying and overthinking every time. Instead of worrying it will mess up or the end result will look ugly, that people won’t like it, why don’t we just focus on the process of creating.’
You should check out her channel on YouTube if you love art like me.

It is our duty to protect,
The environment at our best.
Be it a poor dolphin,
Or a little bird’s nest.
We need to protect them,
With all our might.
Those animals and trees,
Think of their plight.
If we help them,
They will help us,
Everyone will be,
Happy and bright.
So why not help the nature around?
Let’s plant lots of trees,
And help the animals
Save the land and mother nature,
The ocean and every creature.
It is our duty to protect,
The environment at our best.
That’s the best way to say
A HAPPY ENVIRONMENT DAY!
A Happy Women’s Day
A woman is a jewel of beauty, grace and happiness. She is hardworking, helpful and polite. Each woman has a specialty of her own.
All the women in the world are equal in god’s eyes. But for each of us, there’s a special woman in our life. It can be anyone, your mother, daughter, friend, sister or wife, but there’s a thing that’s common, important and special, and that is, she is a woman!
They may be tender and delicate, but have the strength of ten males. They work from day to night, dawn to dusk, with all their might. And for all they have done, we should thank them at least, so let us all say it together, A HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY!
Book Review: YOUR TURN NOW 2
Your Turn Now 2 was recently launched on 27th Feb 2016.
As you see, the book is as interesting as its name. ‘Your Turn Now 2’ has heartwarming stories of random acts of kindness that are really true, inspired by the little blue card.
Just as a stone causes the whole puddle to ripple, this concept of the little blue card has touched thousands of hearts. I love the book from deep down my heart.
Some of my favorite stories are ‘Ssmall Actions-Huge Consequences’ ‘Little People, Big Hearts’ & ‘I Felt Great’. With the blue cards in their hands anyone can do anything for kindness. You can be a kindness patron too; you just need a kind heart.
This book is a must read book for all ages, specially kids because we, kids, have to take forward the kindness for better future.
The concept is by Rushabh Turakhia and is published by ‘FunOkPlease’. It has beautiful illustrations by ‘Happy Fish’ and is written by Lubaina Bandukwala. Its price is Rs. 250.
So just grab the book now and let the blue magic reveal itself.
The trees are swaying,
Their dew drops sparkling in the sun,
The bugs are hopping to & fro,
Every one is having lots of fun
The ground smells like roasted beans,
The sun sends a ray of hope,
A butterfly flutters across.
Sheep go down the hill slope
The grass looks fresh and new,
The flowers look happy too
Every one looks so cheerful,
But what is their reason?
Oh, I nearly forgot,
It’s spring season!…..
If I would be the prime minster of my country, my first iniative would be to make India 100% educated. Whenever I go out, I see hundreds of people uneducated. I think if the people are educated, India will leap to a state, 100 times better than now. My second biggest initiative would be women empowerment. I will make them aware of there rights.Women are the back bone of our country, if the women moves the family moves and the country moves. I want to promote this saying a lot.
My next step would be to greenify India. Nature can live without us, but we cannot live without nature and so I will make India rich in flora and fauna.
I will be so happy when my fourth dream will come true. I will promote classical music and dance and art a lot too. But for now, I must stop daydreaming and get to work instead!…
