Somebody has to apologise !

Top Post on IndiBlogger

For the sins of man, and brown girl in the ring with beauty crown

someone has to apologise for fear and loss or poverty, war,

tsunamis and ballet – all marrying each other on the run, and

not saying how long they will stay…

or leave, 

and how. No one ‘s asking permission, no one’s dressing properly, everyone’s staying out too late,

everyone’s dating ! Even Juvenile lawyer for the Juvenile criminal( local Indian news) lost his mind,  ‘I would burn that girl alive –  how dare she stay out till 9! How dare she !’ he said, to our horror and I

looked at my time, it was 9 and I too was out late –  worry &Sigh! ( Would those rapists ( DelhiBus) have stopped if that guy with her was her husband ? Hey Lawyer, you’re worse than anything I’ve ever read off the history of man, woman or child, and trust me, am putting this mild )

Where was I ? Ah. Crime and Beauty pageants gone – wrong , on the same page, am….

hey I’m feeling guilty, and don’t know why. Should I ?

Uh… wh – uh …

II. OKAYEEE

Lets apologise….

also, for being women. And human. For having to wear Indian clothes that leave out boots and gear that could perhaps improve our safety. For being brought up to believe, love, trust. That very Indian quality that makes us endearing. I know, I am recipient of appreciation for my Indian smile.

And yes, I would have trusted that Bus conductor waving me in at 9pm. I apologise for that. I apologise also that some times I wear the sari. I never really argue, I do not doubt. But now I do. And it scares me. To need to doubt. And to hear ‘; burning alive’ said with such ease.  I apologise to Nirbhaya‘s parents. I cringe inside, and wish we could all just return to normal… like it used to be when there was no divide between men and women, when we just human, when the only colours that existed were  true blood red , and  .. uh … am sorry, but then came yellow.

Did I suspect ..?

Dear God,

Sometimes it is worth the wait, for a dream to come true. Even dreams and wishes change. Didn’t we all know that ? And yet, this is a new thing, to know how much a person can be humbled within, to change. To never mind insult. To not even notice hate. To forgive move on, be smacking grateful for the view. Dearest Lord, did You know we could all change this much ? Esp me ?

Did I even know – I was a painting ? An instrument – strung with tension, chord and bar ; that this and that would be the song in the dark, in the light, in the roof top and other unheard of places…

Did we know the bigger picture – how could I at least – am this size, I thought, these here were just arms and feet… these here, were just eyes and ears and nose and toes… how could I have known, these are what tones and melodies, or discord are made of…

but now that I know – ah now that I know, and its been made clear… am staring anew, dear God…  there’s so much now I may not misunderstand….

never realised we are your song…

BEYOND BELIEF

Each new day now I open my eyes and see –

this is more beautiful than yesterday,

Dark edges Light . I did not see that before –

even Darkness knows  the Light ;

where can It run : the Light finds It, floods It ;

we grew up with the uncertain knowledge of Night , but

last night I watched It leave, watched It break into little pieces

of Day ;

can I ever be the same

again ?

I have broken into Day….

TRY THE MIRACLE OF GRATITUDE..

IT CAN BRIGHTEN ANY DARK CORNER,

THROWS LIGHT INTO ANY SITUATION,

LIGHTENS ANY LOAD,

GIVES YOU BEAUTY FOR ASHES

WHISPERS NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE,

SHOWS YOU – YOU ARE PRECIOUS,

MAKES IT ALL WORTH THE EFFORT,

YES, I’VE TRIED THE MIRACLE OF GRATITUDE

FOR THE LIFE, GIVEN,

IT CHANGES ME

IT CHANGES ME

BEYOND BELIEF

The first song…

The words came out and met over my head,

what can you say ;

they ( words) have a life of their own, I am just rented space,

they are often too much to put on paper

and break into a song, dear God,

what made the first song, was it a river, a stream,

a scream, was it a rain drop pattern  drip – drop on a

pain, was it a cough, a sneeze, stammer that happened

with the rain….

Three Stories from a Person who still Lives( Steve Jobs)

I have never got tired of this one :  thank you Sir.

” You have to trust that the ‘ dots’ will somehow connect in the future..

………..STAY HUNGRY, STAY FOOLISH …”

English: Steve Jobs shows off the white iPhone...

Do  listen :

Uploaded on Mar 7, 2008   Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself — at the university’s 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005.

Reality & U tube

(They said it was U Tube geek day, I checked but fell in here : See Homeless human slinky!

My impressions here, are  dedicated to house hunters and eco- victims! This is American TV at best, but blood still runs red mate, there are still things we all collectively need, regardless.  Human slinky blest by his struggles, must see….  below  )

Homelessness can teach you Extremes

how to use pain

contortions – as moves

how to dance in the streets

how to use your spine

how to use your naked hunger/ your Ouch factor

how to kneel, how to walk on arms….

You learn to control people who watch you;

Most people don’t embrace something, you got to

embrace something, to cry like that, to entertain like that

from the wrungs of your soul,

nothing less than your 100 percent dream- wrenchn’ soul- taking

time- to weep and change the way you smile, to never

stop being real…

Happy U tube geek day :)))))

Can puppies, trees, unborn babies know they are loved ?

 

There should be at least ONE day / year dedicated to enjoying the Earth we have left.

 

Squirrel

 

Watch a Tree, a Sea. A sunrise, Eat in a field, walk bare feet again, hold hands with a puppy, or dolphin ( some  can ).  

I am called a Silly Romantic, but maybe that is my Call,  that is why i am visited by Squirrels and love birds. Lizards cluck at me and THRICE bees have built their Hive in our balcony.There are dying species all around, but this is the worst – that a person should have no Voice. No right to survive.

 

English: Present day Earth altimetry and bathy...

DID I HAVE RIGHTS, MA ? 

 

 

Bharatnatyam is done barefeet to emphasize connectivity to the earth
