Last for now but not for long…

Often I remember a memory of my childhood, sometimes after dinner I used to sit on chair of our veranda with some fruits. We lived in a staff quarter in that time. The veranda was open as there were no metal grills like today. I used to sit there, take the fruits and see the open sky above and think so many strange things. Sometimes, my mom used to sit there by taking me on her. Often I asked a question “Mom… Has anybody ever visited moon?”

She used to answer, “Yes, some American guys did”

Then I used to say “ Ok! Then I won’t go there. Has anybody ever visited stars?”

She used to reply “Nop, till now nobody could”

Then I used to smile and say “I’ll visit the starts when I’ll be grown up and I’ll bring one for you”

My mom used to laugh and say “Why my son has to go there, my baby itself a Star, shinier than those”

How stupid I was, I used to tell this to my school friends that I’m a shinier star than those stars they see at the night sky. This is something that I often remember and smile. But till now, somehow my childish mind believes those words and inspires like anything.

It was a wonderful journey till today, it’s not always important to take life as a race. Because if it’s a race, I have to run, and if I run than I can lose so many things that I could get by walking. Someone said “Always try to take the pleasure from small moments, after someday just look back, you’ll find them bigger”… Yes!! It’s true, if I try to win something I’ve to know how to defeat others. But if I try to achieve something I’ve to be passionate about that….

This blog was made for a particular achievement… but you know what?? Already I’ve achieved something that exceeds the power of everything.

Achieved the ability to express

Achieved the way to explore

Achieved the eyes to see the world

Achieved the mirror to show the world

Achieved the words to respect

Achieved the heart to achieve respect

Achieved the smile to appreciate

Achieved the humble to be appreciated

Achieved the truth to love humanity

Achieved the vote to be in humanity

Achieved the love of friends who made my existence

Achieved the way to thank those friends for making my existence

Yes!! I Achieved…

Achieved my Existence….

Achieved my meaning…

Achieved my Love…

Achieved me…

I’m just a little shiny star for my mother…

And a seed for the world that just broke the ground and wondering so meet the nature…

I’ll finish for now with last 4 lines

“Sky makes me feel sometimes,

I didn’t have to grow,

As the eagle leaves the nest,

It got so far to go!!”

    Thanks for your kind words on the Celan/Derrida thing. I think the ability to hold a mirror to the world is the greatest gift that any of us can have. I don’t think it matters that much how we achieve this (words, pictures, gestures etc) but I do think that those who have this gift have an absolute duty to exercise it.

    I was once told, when at school, that the most sincere writing comes when you have experience. It upset me a little, because I was writing total fiction at the time and being fourteen had little experience of life beyond school.
    However, now I understand what was meant. Your latest piece is embedded in reality, which is why there is so much feeling in it and so much of it flows through to the reader.
    You must keep this up!

    Your blog is filled with beautiful expression and your website is so interesting!

    Thank you for visiting my new blog,
    and commenting on a recent post.

    One of my classroom strategies involves using phrases in languages other than English to catch students’ attention. My favorite is French! “Attention, s’il vous plais!” When I speak French, the American kids look at me with funny faces and laugh, but they tune in quickly.

    I was an exchange student to France years ago and still love my French family, the culture and your beautiful language.

    All the best to you,

    After I posted my last comment, I checked my French on a free translation website and, as I suspected after writing about your blog, I misspelled the phrase, “Attention, please!” L’attention s’il vous plait! (Sorry not to have the accent mark to insert in the word plait) Glad to make the correction. It’s been a while since I’ve written French even though I speak it often and with pleasure.
