Thinking out of the box…

Once Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar wrote to Madhusudhan Dutt, “As you are a master in English, can you make a sentence without using ‘E’?”

Madhusudan Dutt responded with this…

“I doubt I can. It’s a major part of many many words. Omitting it is as hard as making muffins without flour. It’s as hard as spitting without saliva, napping without a pillow, driving a train without tracks, sailing to Russia without a boat, washing your hands without soap. And, anyway, what would I gain? An award? A cash bonus? Bragging rights? Why should I strain my brain? It’s not worth doing.”

Tere baad ab main yun jeeta hu’n…

 

Ab main chai thandi hone nahi deta,
Usay garam hi peeta hu'n, 
Tere baad ab main yun jeeta hu...

Wo hasi, muskurahatein, wo pyar mohabbat ki baatein,
Ab aksar khamosh hi rehta hu'n
Tere baad ab main yun jeeta hu'n...

Tere baad ishq na hoga kisi se kabhi,
Wo waada shayad ek tarfa ho,
Ab bhi main nibhata hu'n,
Tere baad ab main yun jeeta hu'n...

Ashq behte hain, dil sulagta hai,
Bhooli bisri purani yaado'n mein jaakar rehta hu'n,
Tere baad ab main yun jeeta hu'n...

Jo chala gaya usay bhool jao,
Duniya ki ye riwayat hai,
Magar main ab bhi tere laut aane ki raah takta hu'n,
Tere Baad ab main yun jeeta hu'n...

The world is changing!!

Its being a long time I haven’t written any blog, So, I thought I should give it a try and write something to brush up myself and gain a little experience too.

A small little story is running in my brain, which I shall express here in my words and share with you all.

Change

There was a man who was very caring and always helpful to others, a call from anyone for help would touch his heart, and he would be willing run to help. It was a nice winter time, when this man was travelling to a foreign country for some business trip. When he landed and was going through the Check-out process on the airport at his destination, a voice came from behind him, “Sir, would you please help with holding this water bottle, as I have this 2 bags to carry and finding it difficult to manage!” He smiled, and willingly took the bottle in his hands. “Sir, Your Passport please”, came another voice from the counter, as it was his turn for check-out. “Sure”, said he and handed over his ticket and passport at the counter. Suddenly, police guys came in and covered him all around with their guns and shouted “Hands Up!! Do not move!!” At this, the man was very much confused and feared, as what has gone wrong suddenly, many question aroused in his mind, but he remained calm and obliged to what police said.

“Give the water bottle here!!” shouted one of the senior officer. The man looked at the person who has asked him to hold his bottle, then, he threw the bottle in front of the officer, the officer, picked it up and again shouted, “Is this Yours!!”. “No”, said the man. Again, the officer said, “Then how does it is in your hands??”. “It belongs to the man standing near red bag, he gave to it me to carry, as he was unable to manage his luggage and I thought I would help him by carrying his bottle!!”, the man shouted.

The officer took the bottle, put his fingers around the bottle sticker and removed it, and lo!, there were Diamonds stuck up inside the sticker. “Your are under Arrest, for smuggling diamonds into the country!” The man was astonished on hearing this, and straight away went to hit the person whom he had offered the help. The police caught him up, the man pleaded, this bottle belongs to this scoundrel and I am being just dragged into this. On hearing this, the person whom the bottle originally belonged straight away shook his shoulders and told plainly that he doesn’t know about the Water bottle, neither does he know the person who is alleging him of the crime. The man was lost, he didn’t have any chance nor any proof to save him from this brothel. The police took him away and charged him with imprisonment for smuggling diamonds!!

The thing which I want to convey here is, be vigilant, don’t be a fool to help anyone. Helping others is a good thing and we should always be willing to do this. But, not in such a way that we have to pay a hefty price for the crime we did not do. This is the modern age, where people just try to make their own things better, gone are the days, where people lived with a big heart and what they needed in return was love and happiness. Yes, the world is changing!!
