Regardless I am weak or not
I am enjoying this life I’ve gotten
I am facing all the challenges I was givenΒ 
Because I know this,
Life is not an imagination
Where I can stay worry-free always
Where I have no struggles to face
Where someone always keeps me happy
Instead it’s a destination
Where I should learn from struggles
Where I must face challenges
Where I need to keep myself happy always
Regardless I am strong or not.

All about an ill-fated love.

The day she realised how her presence irritates him, she decided to let her absence comfort him. And, she succeeded in it though his absence irritated her every minute.Β 

An ill-fated love #1

As a soldier!

Every year we celebrate Indian Army Day on January 15. And today, it’s another January. Let us salute all the heroes who are protecting us every day. 

Here’s a little poem as a tribute for all Indian Soldiers.

As a soldier!

Though!

Half Broken! Half Mended!

He only exhibited courage in his eyes

Never a single drop of tears

That falls over his heart every day. 

When half of his heart lamented

To see his loved ones.

Half of his heart get mended

To save his land, 

As a soldier. 

.

Though! 

His youth is falling

His desires are calling

His life is crawling

He never complained

He never get worried

Because, 

Neither his youth nor his desires

Is important to his life, 

As a soldier. 

.

Though! 

A thunderstorm hits him every night

On looking at his family photo

On thinking about a dinner together

On counting all unfixable desires

He fixed himself to save his land

From all the thunder and storm

Round the clock every day

By holding his head high

As a soldier. 

.

Though! 

I dunno him

He isn’t my family 

He isn’t my friend

I do respect for his

Half heart that laments for his family

Half heart that’s mended for us

Yeah! We should pray for him

We should respect him

As a soldier.

β€˜Being Reshma: The Extraordinary Story of an Acid-Attack Survivor who Took the World by Storm’ by Reshma Qureshi with Tania Singh

Theme: How acid attack survivor Reshma turned a life-altering event into a movement for change.

“Being Reshma” is an emotional and eye-opening story of Reshma Qureshi, an acid attack survivor who’s now a Model, a Vlogger and an Anti-Acid Sale Activist.

This book lets us know Reshma Qureshi from the time of her early youth to how Reshma overcame her struggles to become a powerful voice for several acid survivors and an inspiration for many. 

Reshma is the youngest girl in her family. She grew up with her brothers and sisters in a conservative household in Mumbai. 

When her family finds it hard to live in Mumbai anymore, they shift to live in their ancestral home located at Allahabad. That is where that heartbreaking event took place and which changed Reshma’s life forever.

In May 2014, while going out for an examination, 17-year-old Reshma got acid thrown on her face by her sister Gulshan’s former husband Jamaluddin. It was a classic act of revenge. Her entire face was burned and when she was taken to hospital, but didn’t get proper attention from the authorities there. The police, too, behaved indifferently. From then, she began to face a series of callous behaviours from everywhere.

But, like us………. She didn’t capitulate.

But, not like us…….She did start to fight life and society. She did take power from her powerlessness.

Then…..

In 2015, Reshma participated in a campaign called #endacidsale that comes with three videos giving beauty tips.

In 2016, She went on to make global headlines by becoming the first acid attack survivor to walk the runway at the New York Fashion Week. 

Now, she is an Indian model, vlogger, and anti-acid sale activist. She is the face of Make Love Not Scars, an NGO that works towards rehabilitating and empowering acid-attack survivors.

When we talk about Reshma’s journey, we also need to mention two other strong womenβ€”Ria Sharma, founder of Make Love Not Scars (an NGO that helps in the rehabilitation of acid attack survivors), and Tania Singh, its CEO – these two women supported her a lot in her success. We have a lot to learn – From Reshma — How to raise up from those tragedies in our life? From Tani and Ria — How to be part of someone’s life by helping them to raise up from those tragedies happened in their life.

Being Reshma”, is a compelling read for more than one reason. Really, this memoir touched every corner of my heart deeply. I am a midnight reader and started reading this memoir around and completed it around 2’clock or less. But after reading this,  I didn’t sleep that whole night because I was that disturbed about…about .. I don’t why so?  about what?  But I really want to meet her one day because she is that much great to me. Really Really Really she is a heroine.

I highly recommend this story “Being Reshma” to everyone. There is a lot to learn from her life and her attitude towards life.

Being Reshma -Book Review

MyΒ Lord!

May I begin this May.

 

My Lord !

May I begin this May

May I mute…

My stressful life before May

More than few seconds to one month.

Mystify myself before my problems.

 

My Lord !

May I begin this may

Month named in maia’s honor

May I bring a maia within

Myself, by then being the best child

Muffled within Atlas’s kingdom

Modished as the shy Goddess.

 

My Lord !

May I begin this may

May flowers were ready to celebrate

May carnival of happiness

May I enjoy myself with them

Mingled with my lucid dreams.

 

My Lord !

May I begin this month, by

Migrating from hot breezes, that

Murderously burnt my dreams,

My life, everything, and now

May I breath in May’s freshness.

 

My Lord !

May I begin this may.

A dark wrapper of abjectness

By darkness of self distrust

Rapidly removed with acuteness

Of light from self respect & trust .

 

Darkness in life is the light of life

That light , some said it’s maturity

The end product of earthly life

And derives from awake to reality.

 

Life is a amalgam of vice & virtue

Sometimes it may bring worse

Another time better will accrue

From worse,with a light of amuse.

 

There is no light without darkness

Light without darkness is fruitless

All are nothing in the lack of darkness

Even moon will become beautiless.

 

To Relish the taste of light from life

We must change our attitude & views

Infer , darkness travels faster in life

Than light in the theoretical allude.

 

Stop looking into others’ life , works

And theory of darkness from life

Just compile new theoretical works

Via enjoying that light from your life.
