Albums

4/4/2017 7:50:00 PM

Albums: Found some dusty albums, almost getting discarded with time, The time and technology has gone far too fast, No one now sticks pictures in an album, the finger tip camera album is the only survivor. Who looks at all the old pictures in the albums anyway, Who has the time to reminiscience their childhood days, Who wants to know how little and precious kids once they were, who wonders why parents adored them in front of nice garden, lake or ocean . Don't beleive what nostaliga it is, open the pages of an album, Your life will seem to evolve with every page you turn, For a moment, the past will become present, the memories will come alive, Every picture has some history, your heart will smile with the fondness and love. The history of evolution used to get stored in those albums, I can see myslef getting old from youth, playing with children, loving my wife, The black and white pictures holding their grace, the color ones displaying exuberance, Older I get,

What people think about me

4/4/2017 7:53:00 PM

What people think about me..... My parents always thought about me, as a sincere, hard working, and shy boy, They had high hopes of me becoming a rich tycoon, Never imagining me turning into a poet with empty pocket admiring the moon. When I came to US as a young single man for higher studies, My friends thought I would spend more time in female studies, They would be surprised to know that I did not had time, to even look at the bikini clad girls sun worshipping outside. What my wife thinks about me for so many years, A stubborn lonesome man lost in his own world, A poet fallen in love with love, writing poems on abstract woman from past and beyond. Now what my loved ones think about me, A nice person who went to a party school, Got many degrees without knowing what beer was, A pseudo artist cum computer geek, Who is inseparable from his sweetheart, the internet and the computer machine.

The words we speak

4/4/2017 7:57:00 PM

The words we speak ... Words we speak, Can break someone's heart, The words we speak, Can mend someone's broken heart. Speak sweetly, pleasant to others ears, Make other people happy, make yourself content, No one can even willingly taste the twisted terse words, like putting a cube in a circular hole. The words you write can make you great, you can be a great poet, write poems full of romantic words, you can be a philosopher, write about intricate mystery of mind, you can be a scientist, write a thesis and prove it to the world. The vicious nature of abusive words, comes and torments your own heart, The words spoken in anger, sometimes burn your own conscience.

In the dark alleys of loneliness

4/4/2017 7:59:00 PM

In the dark alleys of loneliness, a shadow of love and affection becomes the only ray of hope, the search continues in daydreams and anxious thoughts, only to discover the truth, I am the only person who truely deserves my love and affectionn. How do I get rid of my loneliness, how do I find the true love, Life is a boat in the river of emotions, partners like travelers come and go, Dwelling in past, remembering the fond moments, soothes my mind, But the past is past, time has slipped by, the waves have withdrawn from the shores. In the dark and silent rooms of loneliness, a flickering candle gives me some hope, The dreams of loving future abounds, but they disappear when I open my eyes. The present stands still by my side, invisible like the air I breathe in, If I concentrate my mind on the present, may be the fog will lift with penetrating sunshine. We are shaped by our thoughts, we become what we think, No one saves us but ourselves, No one can and no one will,

Bhimrao Ambedkar was born to Bhimabai and Ramji on 14 April 1891 in Mhow Army Cantonment, Central Provinces (Madhya Pradesh). Ambedkar’s father was a Subedar in the Indian Army and after his retirement in 1894, the family moved to Satara, also in Central Provinces. Shortly after this, Bhimrao’s mother passed away. Four years later, his father remarried and the family shifted to Bombay. In 1906, 15 year old Bhimrao married Ramabai, a 9 year old girl. His father Ramji Sakpal died in Bombay, in 1912. Throughout his childhood, Ambedkar faced the stigmas of caste discrimination. Hailing from the Hindu Mahar caste, his family was viewed as “untouchable” by the upper classes. The discrimination and humiliation haunted Ambedkar at the Army school. Fearing social outcry, the teachers would segregate the students of lower class from that of Brahmins and other upper classes. The untouchable students were often asked by the teacher to sit outside the class. After shi
