A special Children’s Day

Posted by Rojit on December 13, 2015

In the field of psychology, one must have certainly come across the PAC ego state. Yes the Parent-Adult-Child! No matter what one’s age is, there’s always a child side..sometimes overpowing the other two states at not-so-good-times. On the eve of this year’s Children’s Day, let me try connecting a string of past with this present so that this coming future will always have good memories to wander off.
On a fine day 20 years ago, I pictured a boy who was busy eating his afternoon snacks hastily. His mother shouted at him. His aunty also joined forces scolding him not to eat food very fast. ”U idiot, if you eat your food at that speed, it will cause indigestion.
He didn’t listen to either of them. And the persistent name of the boy was reverberated through the entire house as his friends were shouting his name again and again.
Thembung…Thembung…numit taakhidoure…sat sat laak o” (Come fast, dawn is near)
As he finished eating, he ran fast to his friends with three wicket sticks in his hand. ”Come home before it gets dark!!” – his mom shouted. ‘Yeah sure mom‘ – he answered as usual knowing he won’t!
His friends on the other hand said, ”You eat so much and yet never get fat. What’s the secret?’‘ And confused as always whether it’s a compliment or a sarcasm, he replied saying he would be fat someday…someday!
And this boy today looks at himself checking his tiny muscles and tells to himself, ”I’m never going to be fat !
Life’s been a roller coaster ride and thinking about the good times and those few bad times, I believe the divine gift of being alive says a lot more however twisted the route is. I don’t believe that we are the creations of God. At certain point in our lives, we just stop being the creations. That’s when childhood days get over. Imagine all the world’s worst badasses..all of them during their childhood days must be damn cute..or too good to become the ones the world now knows.
Perhaps, it’s days like today we celebrate the most important part of our life…the life of being a child.
Hope everyone still relishes the ‘child’ in them and spreads more smiles ‘coz the world seriously needs more and more smiles..more like the smiles of children!

A better Manipur

Posted by Rojit on October 29, 2015

I believe that there’s a better Manipurman

In heavens, her essence shall reach,

The mountains bloom with the valley,

Her soils dance with the monsoon,

And her wealth enamoured with peace!

I believe that there’s a better Manipur

Where children’s smiles resurface again,

Sound of guns locked in some dungeon,

Evils barely touching Her breath,

And birds’ croons wake us up…once again!

Let’s all believe in a better Manipur

Where the leaders are human once again,

Followers find reasons to have faith,

Fraternity with the system’s guardians,

And a place worth dying for, yet again!

A one-time Life

Posted by Rojit on October 1, 2014

A beautiful thing called LIFElife1
Half a second, half a pleasure
And in other halves, let there be dreams!
I want not an eternity to live,
Nor a bed of roses to rest,
But a few clouds in the sky free of hate,
Where I can play with all.

The vast emptiness of universe taught many,
Sometimes, surmising the absence of the Almighty
But for someone who knows to hope,
Who sees optimism even in sunsets,
Who believes in goodness of every heart
What has life taught you finally?
Other than living it to the fullest!

There’s a small tortoise that walks,
It won’t relax and it won’t stop
Till the last breath takes this life
Before that, let there be happiness
And smiles in every person I know,
And proud of being who they are,
All I wish for – let me be the reason.  

At the union of past, present and future
Beckoning the moments of this life,
Knowing the real meaning of this life,
Someday, my heart shall tear open to see
To see if the journey can be rekindled
But for this one-time-life full of gifts,
Let me be not sorry for any moment in past!!
