Success and

Success and failure
does not matter
you are with me
that is enough.

You can see
the leaf the flower
and feel proud
as before.

Stone is a stone
does not matter
gold or copper.

Christina Georgina Rossetti

One And One Are Two

1 and 1 are 2 -
That's for me and you.
2 and 2 are 4 -
That's a couple more.
3 and 3 are 6
Barley-sugar sticks.
4 and 4 are 8
Tumblers at the gate.
5 and 5 are 10
Bluff seafaring men.
6 and 6 are 12
Garden lads who delve.
7 and 7 are 14
Young men bent on sporting.
8 and 8 are 16
Pills the doctor's mixing.
9 and 9 are 18
Passengers kept waiting.
10 and 10 are 20
Roses - pleasant plenty!
11 and 11 are 22
Sums for brother George to do.
12 and 12 are 24
Pretty pictures, and no more.

Friedrich Nietzsche

A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions--as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.

Joseph Heller

Success and failure are both difficult to endure. Along with success come drugs, divorce, fornication, bullying, travel, meditation, medication, depression, neurosis and suicide. With failure comes failure.

Life Keeps On Revolving Around Fate

We came
To this world
Because of Fate
We all think of fate
Pray and meditate
Look at god in hope
Because of faith
He is the one
Who decides the fate?
Happiness, unhappiness
Success and failure
Are all one’s fate
Death is unavoidable
But when one get’s it?
Is fate
Some believe some don’t
Life keeps on
Revolving around fate

A Game To Play Well...

Success and failure are common in life
Like happiness and sorrow we all know
But we should not give up the resolve!

Summer may come and winter may come
Like the day and night that come regularly
But the day and the year go on as usual!

Life and death are common in the world
Like the Sun rise and the Sun set we know
But the perpetuation of species won't stop!

To be steady in the world life we have to take both
Joy and sorrow in the same way to finish game well!

Mumbai

They call it a city that never sleeps,
Dreams at large; everything in heaps
Buzzing all the time, different people different cons,
It got its roses and it got its thorns.

City of murmuring traffic and twinkling cars
The multi-millionaires, the movie stars.
We’ve got it all;
The vada-pav and the dance bars,

Crowded local trains, almost on time,
Spirit of its passengers always sublime
City where honesty is rewarded,
But bravery is crime.

Success and failure are in twilight,
City where changes happen overnight
You might be swept if caught off sight,
Got lucky, then you be on a flight

Multi-lingual, multi-religious,
City of unusual weather,
I wouldn’t be wrong; if I say,
It’s a city where country comes together,

Every city has its ups and downs and she is no different.
She gives me an identity and makes me proud.
City where I was born and city where I want to die,
My city! My Mumbai

Success And Failure

Someone once called me a failure
for the publications that I lacked,
but I think they were wrong,
Success is not how much money
or gold that you earn.
Success is how many friends
in your life can hold,
for they are more precious
than money or gold.
Friendship has no price tag,
it cannot be bought or sold
and it comes from a heart of gold.
Therefore, in the future
any friends you may acquire
treat them with respect
unless you wish
their friendship to expire.

wisdom ***** START WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED

Don't blame your
parents poverty
for not inheriting you
wealth from birth

Don't finger point
randomly anybody
nor compare with
other achievements

and implies narrowly

if you are like this
you become like that

Don't question
the magnificent hand
of your Creator
for your totality
of your being you

success and failure
is up to us
either we strive hard
and start where
we are planted

Who and What Are They Masquerading

I'm sure I'm not the only one,
Who sees what they've done...
Like this:

IF what they had in place,
Was so perfect and right...
Why is it they've compromised their lives,
By standing near an abyss...
To jeopardize themselves instead.
To follow like sheep,
With opened eyes.

Why did it take fresh leadership,
One they criticize and despise.
To say the one elected by popularity...
Has 'stars' embedded in his mind,
As a prize.

To win as everyone praises him.
No matter what the color is,
Of his arrogance and his grin!

And he misunderstands the severity,
Of their dilemma...
Any idiot can recognize.

AND,
If he is the IDIOT...
Who and what are they masquerading,
To portray in disguise?
Heartless and blinded zombies?
Gathering to worship failure...
And finding the depth of it,
Surprisingly deep!
And this they can't deny,
Run away from or try to hide!

Sorrowful ocean

Life is like vast ocean,
Full of sorrow and pain,
Joy less and worry main,
Not to loose hope and energy regain,

To Learn a lesson from each failure,
Content with less and nothing to procure,
Difficulties more but patience to endure,
No immediate result but success is sure,

If life was ever to be smooth,
Who would pray and take oath?
Eat more and carry the weight
Sound sleep and get up late

Life and death are two parts of wheel
failure of any one may makes us to feel
Life may move on and doesn’t come to an end
Pray for success and ways to mend

who understands life but never lament?
No regrets but passing the comment
trying very hard to overcome the shock
Time never stops as clicks the time in clock

Hardship may give you endurance and strength
Will power to withstand and go to any length
No loss of face but to feel at ease,
Success to knock and failure to cease

Success And Image And The Face Of It

Those who say,
Looks aren't everything!
Aren't the ones who are judged,
Based solely upon them.

And besides...
This can be deducted,
From what many prize.
Thick lips, nappy hair and brown eyes...
Are not considered standards,
By those who analyze.
Not for a beauty,
Considered to be immortalized.

No matter who is competent...
In a package that is presented!
If it doesn't suit the taste,
For those who select an image to digest.
As an appearance,
That suggests success...
And not a waste to regret.
It will be the 'image' one picks,
Over a competence that 'may' exist.

'But hasn't it been image and not substance,
That has increased in an invited decadence? '

Well...
Yes.

'But who in reality today believes? '

Remember this...
Image speaks volumes.
And easier to hype.
On the other hand...
Reality is something placed,
On an equality wish list...
Not too soon to happen,
For the sake of changing...
Success and image and the face of it!

Action and Its Reaction

Every action has reaction
Either in favor or for friction
What does law of attraction say?
Like charges repel and unlike charges stay

Man is after all man
Full of actions and human
May have all types of repercussions
Sometimes garland and some times accusations

Life is full of chase
It is never an easy phase
He has to struggle
With lots of troubles

Life is full of challenges
He has to rewrite it on new pages
So it is possible to face fall
And same time invites beautiful call too

Submission and rejection are two different thins
It may positively yield or result in dismal things
If he proposes and some disposes off
It doesn't mean or result in laugh off

He has lot more to say and accept
Give place to some one and some one to reject
It is entirely his discretion to own
At the same time to make it known

Man is in full control of situation
In love, trade or for similar continuation
He has the success key to hold and excel
Prove to the people and fears to dispel

Yes, There Are Two Gods

There are two kinds of Gods, one is always making creations, life, creatures, beings, consciousness, and going on without looking back, creating even more spectacular creations, universes, multiverses, ever greater complex life forms one more fantastic than the other.

There is another sort of God, one that creates a universe but gives a ram about the beings he created. This God is there, this god stays with his creatures, with her beings as they struggle, as they strive, he gives them space and the ability to co-create with her. The other god, could care less, he has other better universes and forms of life to make.

in this universe in our life now, these two gods are fighting it out, in our life now we are fighting it out with them as well. Do you want the greatness of the narcissistic God of cold selfish greatness. What a price you pay for being like this god or worshipping this god. He just made you to prove to himself how great he is, or do you align your self up with the God that gives a tam about you, he made you because she wanted to share herself and all of creation with you,

What is your choice let me know and why, it says a lot about who you are.

Sweet and sour pain

born to sacrifice the life that is shared and entrusted
by the giver of life, a perfect test to His will; worthy
and faithful to the commandment received

life as it diluted to the spring of ocean and river, fish
learn to swim, adapt what is given and accept any
failure encounter, for everything experienced would
mean a beginning of living

life all the way is a taste of sweet and sour, a venue of
wondering where, every success and failure becomes
the opportunity to challenge, a way to make another
step to achieve what is dream off and what is envision
of what is life ahead

children as they grown up, push us to the limit, where
parents become always the willing sacrifice for what is
ever planted will be harvested at the end, we have to do
the right way and pursue our strength for everything, for
what is done is a prelude to their success

never as we give up, the failure would mean a thing to
forget and remember the end; parents eat the sweet
sour of food they cooked and learn the past by doing the
best for the future

they who have born in a little clot of our love must live
forever, leaving behind the pain of sacrifice entangle
in our lives, for they are the living life in us splinded in
this perfect and wonderful universe

A success and failure

I try to bite the nails
As nothing succeeds and everything fails
Why I had to retrace steps and fail?
What was the reason I failed to avail?

I have no answer as I am out from then service
I had tried earnestly to fulfill the promise
It was still a big surprise
I was hardly touched by any device

The corruption and under table money is common
In any circumstances it is followed on
This is how one has to face the devil in later years
When unpleasant things are hurled in the ears

The hones officers are put to inconvenience
There is every scope for subservience
Nothing is taken as granted for obedience
They have under go humiliation in their presence

It is tragedy and never heard of in recent months
The task offered to them is big and mammoth
There is likely chance of committing an error
The true answer can be found when you are facing mirror

Anybody can be put into fix for nothing
They have to be axed for something
As they had done enough for the cause
As a result they are suffering because……

I have past memory of under going an ordeal
I felt how a person can be fixed on unreal
What else one can be expected to bear at the end?
When whole of your own circle treat you not as friend

The past memories hunt you as hunter dogs
You see complete dark under the thick fog
The honesty has not paid you in the long run
Only they were after you with trotting gun
