Translation*

Yes, Yes, You Have Read Thousands Of Books,
But You Have Never Tried To Read Your Own Self,
You Rush In, Into Your Temples, Into Your Mosques,
But You Have Never Tried To Enter Your Own Heart,
Futile Are All Your Battles With Satan,
For You Have Never Tried To Fight Your Own Desires

PS: The messy routine makes one drown in frenzy circumstances where oneself is second to all materialistic priorities.

That moment…

Love is a purer language
Even a baby can understand
It won’t require any explanations
Nor you need to travel the world
Sometimes you don’t need words too
For others to recognize you
And when you start to know this language
And when two such people meet
Their past and future become unimportant
What is important for them is
That moment…
That incredible moment
When two souls meet to fulfill one dream

Beauty vs. Worth

A friend drops by my house,
goes to my table and points
at a painting – The curly hair
do not look beautiful on this girl,
consider taking the painting down.

We will not find everything appealing to our eyes,
and we will not satisfy our ears with every voice.
This does not take away from its worth.
So might as well not look and hear
if we cannot discern worth from the beauty.

PS: Again, we are trying out something different and hope you guys like it.

You are the best.

“In the history of the universe, there has been nobody like you and to the infinity of time to come, there will be no one like you. You are original. You are rare. You are unique. Celebrate your uniqueness.”
– Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

You are original, rare and unique
Cause you are just the best
You are beautiful
Beauty is not skin deep
But deeper than the skin
Beauty from within
What you think, you become
What you sow is what you reap
Be the best you can
Be what you want to be
Not what others want to see
