An emotional flood of conscious expression,

Running in the veins of a person,

Feeling sorry for an act done,

Or not done,

Breaking norms of ethics,

Outcome in its wake!

Difficult to run away from liability,

Personal and social reaction aplenty,


Death to the deadlines,

By a whisker or by a gaping hole,


Failing your love one,

To wish good tidings,

On birth or wedding anniversary,


Failing to reach on time,

To a certain place,

And missing a vital meet,

Entailing loss in money and self esteem.


When caught resorting to corrupt practices,

With one hand at the currency notes,

And other on the fore-head for expression of dismay.


Taking somebody else’s share,

Without thinking or remorse,

Resulting in red face of highest proportion.


Countless times we put ourselves in dire strait,

By our misdeeds – unaccounted indeed,

Sometimes feel sorry and other times not,


Feels sincerely sorry for the misdeeds committed,

During lively lifetime spent without care or caution,

When at deathbed he is laid,

And the end seems near,

While others mourn for the loss of that individual,

Self mourns that there is nothing he is taking along,

Except the load of undoes he committed,

And no amount of regrets can undo those misdemeanors.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.

  1. I nominated you for the Seven Things About Me Award! Congratulations! Go to my site to learn how to accept the nomination.

  2. I wholeheartedly thank you for nominating me for the ‘Seven Things About Me’ Award.. Your magnanimity will spur me to write more. Although I have some published articles and poems but these are published in some remote and unknown corners because of virtually no know-how about where to go for publication of the work. Anyhow, thanks a millions for nominating me.
