The treasure of tomorrow

What is the treasure of tomorrow?
The young are tomorrow’s jewel;
Our progeny, our gold;
They are our hope,
And our pride;
With energy and enthusiasm
They bustle;
A blessing is our offspring;
If you want them to grow,
That is laudable, indeed;
Then you go ahead and help;
Do something to keep them up;
Do what you should do;
Give them a chance;
You owe them a duty to do so;
To facilitate;
Above all,
Do not stand on their way;
You cannot do that;
If you do, it will be sinful;
You will be
A barrier to their growth.
Which is contradictory by itself;
But, you know,
The young are meant to grow;
Once you’re born,
You haven’t a choice
But to grow;
Yes, they must grow;
Give the young a chance to grow;
The young want their chance
To grow;
Make our treasure
Of tomorrow realize
The fullness of their being.


Looking Young And Ageing

Looking Young.jpg

I am in the fortunate position of looking considerably younger than I am.  It is lovely, and I do what I can to keep it this way; face yoga, meditation, seeds in my porridge.  Daily smoothies packed with ground seeds and powders.  I also take about 14 different supplements every day.

Stepping into the business world as a young-looking person, however, is a different story.  People struggle to support a young person, emotionally.  It is a primal urge.  I hold no judgement.  Ageing is hard – hence the aforementioned daily routine.

I think compassion is the only way through it, for the young and old.  We all have our struggles.  Remember young people do not have the experience to understand their emotions yet.  Growing up is a rough time.  Likewise society persecutes us for ageing, despite all the experience and understanding and philosophising we offer.

Have compassion, support.  Be the best you.



Your children are amazing

“The amazing exhibition of talents by our young people is enough to allay the fears of those parents who are jittery about where their progeny would get jobs when they grow up. Of course, they will create their jobs. What parents should concern themselves with is the provision of opportunities for quality education for their offspring. If well equipped with the necessary intellectual prowess that quality learning offers, these young ones will rise to the challenges of their times.”

Romilia Quotes.

Young people are my blessing

What a wonderful blessing!

To have so many inspiring

Young people around me!

Bustling with youthful exuberance;

Who will not like to be like me?

To have such treasure, such gold;

See how they inspire me;

They teach me new ways

Of seeing, knowing and doing;

How can I ever run out of steam?

They inspire;

They motivate;

They energize me.

Oh God!

Thanks for all these sweet, young

And brilliant ones.

Bless them O Lord, to conquer

More and more everyday!


I was inspired to write this poem by the young people who interact with me on SIWO. I am grateful to them.

Song Lyrics

Free Room

Give me free room for the free air to breathe.
Give me free room for the gentle love.
Give me, o give me free room.
Give me, give me free room.

Test the power of dream over reality.
See the lights in the night, hear the
rockin’ of tomorrow.
Give me, o give me free room.
Give me, give me free room.

Living Out There: The Tale Of The Patwa-Dangar Camp

6 Kms to the south of Haldwani is Patwa Dangar, a place so high that you could touch the clouds with raising your hand just above the shoulders. This is sort of an unexplored hill station which surprisingly has a circuit house and a small village scattered over the highs and lows of steep hill.

12440 ft. (3792 m) above the ground you have to be really tough to live out here.

This is one of the first accounts of my adventures starting from college days. I shall post the series in continuation of the same. Watch this space for more!

Top of the Elevenses/Brunch #43

How wonderful to see children full of excitement and going to school.  School should be a happy experience.  However this is not the full picture because there are some children who are not so happy at school because of bullying.  Having to suffer in later years for things that happened during this time, having life prospects, physical and mental health derailed is a terrible thing.

The onus is still on parents to  notice the effects of bullying while it is happening.  Sometimes we put tensions and occurrences at school and home down to teenage angst, when the child is actually going through intense humiliation from name calling, hunger from pocket money being taken and emotional and physical abuse. So let’s be quick to  only to observe and save our children but to secure their future happiness. Cover them with prayers too.

Let’s also push for governments, education authorities and schools to put some policies of Zero-Tolerance to Bullying in place.
