Blood donation is a form of salvation

I am an avid blood donor. In my college too I had donated blood and got yummy refreshments in return. But the best part was that my contribution was literally saving someone’s life. To ensure I get updates regarding blood donation, I signed up to receive notifications from BloodConnect, a wonderful organization working towards addressing blood shortage in India. Today I again got an opportunity to donate to a blood cancer patient. A BloodConnect official

Every day is New Year’s Day, Every Night is Xmas Night

Mr. Floyd Bottomsup was teaching a history lesson describing the accomplishments and adventures of Alexander the Great and his beloved horse Bucephalus to a class of 6th graders. Bottomsup finishes the class stressing that if one has a dream and pursues it singlemindedly, each of the kids could achieve even greater things than Alexander and rewrite history.

Mindfulness @ Work

We have an open-office policy at work. While this  conveys collaboration and transparency, they are difficult on ears and concentration. …Printers. …Photocopiers. …Chats. …Corridor Discussions. …Ringing phones. …Speaker phone conversations …Voices in the cubicles. …Sounds generated by co-workers. There is no getting away from these sounds and other ‘white noise’ that constantly and consistently intrude into one’s flow of thought. There are ways we can create sound buffers – listen to music or use apps

कहाँ जाइएगा आप

खुद से बिछड़ के दूर कहाँ जाइएगा आप, जलती है सुबहो शाम कहाँ जाइएगा आप I   शहरों से मोहोब्बत के निशां मिट रहें हैं रोज़, मंजिल ख़बर नहीं है कहाँ जाइएगा आप I   कांटे बिछे राह में सूरज चढ़ा हुआ, बिन साया नंगे पाँव कहाँ जाइएगा आप I   दुनिया ये नफरतों के शिकंजे में फंसी है, अपनी गली से दूर कहाँ जाइएगा आप I   इक आग सी लगी है मेरे दिल

ब्रेक-अप के बाद

रिया का ब्रेक अप हुए तीन महीने से ज़्यादा हो गए हैं लेकिन वो अपने x-बॉयफ्रेंड को अब तक भूल नहीं पायी है. इसी के चलते वो मानसिक अवसाद झेल रही है. साथ ही वो किसी और के साथ रिलेशन भी नहीं बना पा रही हे. यह सच है कि  किसी भी रिश्ते का टूटना बहुत तकलीफदेह होता है. जिनसे हम भावनात्मक स्तर पर जुड़े होते हैं,  उनसे अलग हो कर अपने आप को संभाल पाना

यदि तू विस्तार चाहता है

खुशबू बन उड़ जा यदि तू विस्तार चाहता है I मानव को कर प्यार यदि तू प्यार चाहता है I मोती बन मत बैठ कोष्ठ में, सीपी के जैविक प्रकोष्ठ में, सागर में मिल जा, यदि तू विस्तार चाहता है मानव को कर …… I क्या कहता है अंतर्मन में, शंखनाद बन विचार गगन में, चेतन को बिखरा, यदि तू विस्तार चाहता है मानव को कर …… I मनुज योनी का धर्म समझ ले, जीवन

Birthday musings of a mid-thirties guy

It’s been two days since my birthday and I am still smiling from ear to ear. Being tantalisingly close to mid thirties might not warrant that kind of excitement but when people come together to make you feel special in every little way they could, age becomes irrelevant and what counts for far more is the love and goodwill of people surrounding you. I am approaching that awkward age when the likes, comments, and connection
