Mothers, prayers, and what not

I have seen my mother pray
Pray with full dedication
As if nothing else exists
As if nothing else matters
She prays for everyone
Maybe except for herself
Sometimes she cries
Something has to be bothering her
She doesn’t want to share it with us

Today, I was at a church in Kanyakumari
On my path to self-discovery
Reading The pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho there
And penning down some of my thoughts
I heard some sobs and crying
On looking, I saw a mother
Praying to Jesus
Asking for some fortunate events maybe
While her two kids were sleeping on the floor
Tears running down her cheeks
With a religious book in her hand
With thousands of thoughts in her mind
Of the imminent future
And the testing present

And then she calmed down
Bowed in front of Him
And kissed the kids
Woke them up and off they went

Maybe, my mother cries for the same reason while praying
For her kids, her family
Seldom for herself
And now what makes me cry
Is that my mother cries for others
And so does her son.

Amen!

P.S.: Happy 2020, fellas! πŸ˜› How are you all? Today’s song pick is Khud se by Osho Jain.

The eternal care

I remember every time I come home
I feel something different
Something unique
Something as love
Unequivocal
Seldom via words
Usually by actions
This time around
It was by the same person
Around 4:23 AM
I was awake as I was reading
The fault in our stars
My mom was sleeping beside me
As she moved in her sleep
I switched off the lights
So that her sleep won’t be disturbed
She turned towards me
I couldn’t see whether her eyes were open or close
But she just extended her hand
To feel me
She touched my hand
She touched my chest
My face
She got a sense of my existence
Her heart and soul was convinced
That Darshith’s safe and asleep
She blew a kiss in the air
Muaahhhhh
And she was asleep
I switched on the lights
Continued reading
But before that
I wanted to feel that moment
The love of a mother
The purest form of love
She’s awesome
Asleep yet thinking about the kids
We’re blessed

P.S.: And I am back in Bangalore from my 1 month’s time at home. It was fun and I didn’t talk to my parents/siblings much this time around but it was a different experience. How are you all? Today’s song pick is The Reason Why by JP Cooper.

One of the many mothers who cry

Today was the last of the 25 days I spent at home
Because of my father’s health
And I had to leave 12 hours early to catch my flight
Because I had to collect some hospital documents
And it is tragic that you can’t spend extra time with your mother
We were making thepla together this morning
So that I can eat them at the airport whenever hungry
And the fan of the kitchen was not switched on
I saw a drop of sweat dancing on the tip of my mother’s nose
And I told her to switch on the fan
And then I realized that she had more tears than sweat on her face
And her eyes were all red
And she was trying to hold on to her tears
And I felt like the stupidest son ever
But this is how goodbyes are
And then we all have to part ways
Sooner or later

I wish I could make it better and easier for her and others, but, sadly I cannot.

The epitome of care

She is love

She is caring

She is God

Only in the visible form

We all have felt

The care she showers on us

My Mom is sick

Suffering from fever

And I, the irresponsible child,

Am at work

And I called her now

To know How is she

And while putting the phone down

She said, “Khayal rakhna”

And I was all stunned

She’s ill

She has a fever

She is weak now

And still, she says to me

Take care

And I wanted to rush to her

And go home

And give her a hug

 

P.S.: This was a post which I found in my draft dated 28th Jan 2016. It’s been more than 2 and a half years that I did not post it. But, I wanted to post it because I can still feel the rush of emotions whenever someone close to me is sick or hurt and I am helpless to do anything worthy for them. Hope things are fine with everyone. See you! This post’s song is Come Alive again by Pacman. For motivational videos, check out my YouTube channel, Darshith Badiyani(new videos coming soon). And, I will be going to home in October so then I can hug my Mother India πŸ˜€

Permanent love being sidelined

It rings

And rings

And keeps on ringing

Without anyone paying any attention to it

And then it stops

All silent again

Still silent!

The screen shows 3 missed calls

from MOTHER INDIA

Look at my courage!

Daring enough to not receive her calls

Definitely, I am on the fire line

But I know that she will understand

Me being busy

She might think that either I am asleep

Or busy doing something important

I was and I was not

I could have received her call

But I was busy with the worldly love

The temporary love

The physical love

In the arms of someone

I know just for some weeks

And avoiding the permanent love

The only love I know before my birth

P.S.: Yo! How are you? I am back again to the writing world. I went to Orissa for holidays and had a great time. Will share pics in the next blog. Where are you guys holidaying? Summer is here and so is appraisal cycle in work. How is your work going on? You like appraisal cycle? What do you think can be made good in it? New vlogs coming up @Darshith Badiyani. This blog’s song is THE BIG BANG by Rock Mafia ft. Miley Cyrus.

Yo! You! Happy Children’s day ;)

Trust me on this that I didn’t think of writing this post πŸ˜€

But, seeing people share their childhood pics and sharing posts which bring out the child in us, made me want to write this. After all, I am also a child inside πŸ˜‰

So, tell me, you think you’re crazier than me? You’re more childish than me? You’re more fun than me? You’re cute than me?

I bet I am best on all the above except cuteness because my mother(I call her Mother India) used to drink chocolate Horlicks when she was pregnant with me. It’s no fault of mine πŸ˜‰ But such is life. We get rewarded/punished for things we weren’t a part of and then sometimes, we escape from things which were to be blamed on us πŸ˜›

I wish I had kids so that I can post cute, crazy pics of them here πŸ˜‰ Anyone volunteeringΒ for making my this dream true?Β  πŸ˜‰ Hey! Listen, if you’re my relative or who thinks I am a good guy, this is a joke. If you’re really into me, this ain’t a joke, I am serious! πŸ˜€

Nevertheless, I love being a kid and I instantly like those who behave like one(and obviously are a kid inside) πŸ˜€ I won’t say I have had a harsh life, I have seen the worst of things in life, I haven’t. But yeah, I have had my days, tough days, and here I am all risen, all shining. We all have to fall, and then rise, because that’s how life is. That’s how we grow up. That’s how we mature. That’s how we start to realize the small things of life like eating a lollipop or Poppins πŸ˜‰

So, I will also share some of my funny pics and you’re free to judge me and also my friends πŸ˜‰ Happy Children’s day to one and all.

P.S.: Keep holding on to the child in you πŸ˜› Hence today’s song Hold on by Michael Buble πŸ˜‰ How are you? How is November going? I think I am back to writing blogs again and my videos have dried up, but I will be back πŸ˜€ Just hold on to me coming back for you πŸ˜‰ If you don’t know, check out my YouTube channel Darshith Badiyani.
