An ordinary life….is it?

A few days back eight people were killed while travelling atop a passenger train from Bareilly. Random accidents of people crossing railway tracks while the gates are closed are heard every now and then. Overloaded vehicles topple injuring the passengers.

The recent tsunami at Japan has once again driven home the point to live life to fullest and savour each moment. Life is not meant to be just squandered away ,who knows what is in store for each of us. But people, not only the uneducated but also students, office employees etc are  careless most of the times living in a false euphoria that ill fate would strike somebody else.

Despite all these people still throw caution to wind and life carries on…….

मतवाले हम नौजवान हैं,
आदर्शों और नियम
इनसे हम अनजान हैं,
धैर्य और संयम
हमें इनसे क्या काम हैं
आखिर संभाले हमें भगवान् हैं!
वैसे भी …..
तोल मोल कर देखा है
सबसे सस्ती यहाँ
मानव की जान है
मेरा भारत ……………..!!!!

Yes, the only free and cheapest available thing here is life…..


About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....
