Twinkle Twinkle ‘Pole Star’..( A Short Story)

โ€‹Few days ago ,while sailing through the channel list of the television, I suddenly paused on one of the channels. On this channel, a series was dedicated to Mythology, and the episode showcased one of the touching stories of ‘Dhruv Taara( The Pole Star)’.

In the Hindu mythology , Lord Vishnu is said to have blessed a child whose name is Dhruv, who went on to become the ultimate ‘Pole Star’ as we know today.

The story goes somewhat like this.

Dhruv was the elder son of one of the kings, who also had a second wife and the younger of his kids was from the second wife.
The Maharaja(King) showed some more affection towards the younger son, while his second wife always wished that her son should become the successor of his father, instead of the elder son Dhruv.( In ancient days, the eldest of the sons used to inherit the kingdom from his father.)

Dhruv, pining for his father’s love, used to steal glimpses of his father, who was busy bestowing his love and playing with the younger son.The king used to make him sit on his lap, tell stories and fairy tales.

In a nutshell, Dhruv experienced the love of his father,being bestowed on his younger brother, from a distance, until, one rare night when the Maharaja was playing 
with both of his sons, his second wife interreupted. She  frowned and jolted back upon Dhruv to leave immediately. Elder, but still a kid, Dhruv went on to his Mother ,sobbing, with his eyes saturated with tears and posted his queries, ” Why I am not allowed to play with my father? Does he  love us any more? I want to play along with him, I want to enjoy the warmth of Father-Son relationship from which I have been deprived of ,for so long; I want to sit on my Father’ s lap and listen to the stories…..”.
His mother replied,  ” Love and hatred are two facets of the life.whenever you feel like, that someone else is occupying your position you’ve to toil hard and with your sincere efforts and hard work, you have to attain the higher position. You are the elder son, you will have to prove yourself and make everyone realise your worth.”

That day, Dhruv sat down in meditation,prayed and prayed and till his sincere efforts bore him the fruit. Lord Vishu was extremely fascinated and impresses by Dhruv’s dedication and spirits. He asked him to make a wish. Dhruv asked ” My mother said, we have to toil hard to achieve a higher position. Can you please grant me a higher position so that my father may show little affection towards us? “

Lord Vishnu came to know all about Dhruv.

He made Dhruv sit on his lap and carried him to the acme, the highest position, a permanent position where every one can see him, where everyone can respect and love him, and from where he could prove his worth!

He was also blessed that he would be the one to guide all the people towards the correct path of life over the years to come.

Even today , and many more years to come, The pole star will be the divine symbol of permanence, illuminating our paths towards success and achievements.

Science and mythology are in fact, two facets of the same coin.

In science you believe, what you see;
In mythology you see , what you believe.

If its night out there, then do make a note of the pole star, maybe you can find out some more secrets lying in the divine brightness.

Along the Holy Ganges..

โ€‹โ€‹Fog studded pathways, shimmering water of the Holy Ganges;

Floating clouds and Determined mountains,

Spirituality on the backdrop of self realisation, the cool quiet atmosphere,

Birds seemed to talk amongst themselves, discussing the pains, the struggles and the blissful moments,

The adjoining rocks creating awesome music in unison with the splashing and flowing water,

The Sun wakes up from the pillows of the snow covered mountains- Yawning and getting prepared to Illuminate the lives of Infinite souls,

The clouds seem to play hide and seek when the rays of the Sun tickle them to laughter,

The bliss is here, The Nature is here, The Mountains say so much, The waters whisper their fascinating tales,

The One up above in the Heavens, smiles and bestows His blessings…

#Nutshell

….Just believe that no matter where you invest your energy, it will come back to you someway or the other in due course of time.

 Give time to your decisions, don’t be hasty.

  Give, what it demands today.. and one fine day it will fetch ,what YOU DEMAND tomorrow..

Midnight Motivation

Before you give up, Before you feel like you can’t make it happen, Before you feel like quitting the mortal world, Before you feel that all your hope are plundered and there’s nothing meaningful in life,

Just remember, Just close your eyes before your irrational mind suggests you to sleep forever, see

  •  a Mother in labor pain
  •  a sister with hope in her eyes,
  •  a wife with the belief in her heart
  • a daughter with an idol in her eyes

Do they give up? 

Do they pause their beliefs,?

Do they shatter their hopes?

 Do they stop idealising?

Yes, try to learn, try to be motivated, try to stand for yourself, try to stand by the people who really have you as an integral part of their lives….

Try…Try…Try…and Never Ever Give up!!!

Respect the Women and try to learn from them…as long as you live!! 

Be their belief and they shall be your strength, forever!

Stand by them and they shall stand by you, forever!

You may not need to salute them, just admire their efforts, their ideologies, their achievements and care for them….

Happy Women’s Day

The soliloquy of two souls..

โ€‹No that was not me, that was someone, perhaps a better version of myself,

Holding your hands in the moonlight, sprinkling the stars in your praise, No it was not me,

She was quite passionate, but He knew passion was often garnered by patience,

Lonely nights and the silence, perhaps they never gave what it wanted, Imaginations lingered the feelings, thoughts were visible in the eyes, but they couldn’t read each other,

And after a decade of reminiscing, they weren’t too passive,

They read each other, like never before,

They submerged in each other and their soul was the witness, 

No it weren’t they, They were a better version of themselves!!

My Words๐Ÿ“

โ€‹โ€‹My words have never been enough to praise your beautiful soul,

My expressions were never enough to bring out my love to you,

My jokes were never enough to make you smile every day,

My mood swings were never enough to accept yours,

My acts were never enough to make you believe in my love,

But that Innocent, sweet smile – a bliss to the Eternal heavens, was enough to make me believe that Yes! You are the one!
