Zen

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2016 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's.  Today's word is "Z".
              
My theme is “Human Characteristics”.  Today I chose “Zen”.


Sprints on veranda
Shameless screaming in schoolyards
Fearless me

When did I lose that?
The zeal of a bee, I had
Blissful used to be

Without distortion
Sans figment, happy again
Zen like want to be

~ KARAN

As children we are fearless of the world and our only agenda is to be happy. We mingle and get along with anyone and everyone and never bother about who that person is and which family/religion/cast/creed so and so forth, s/he comes from. However as we grow up we tend to forget the ultimate goal in life of being happy and tend to tilt towards becoming more snobby and selective as a result of which we are illusioned from the real purpose of life and living.

Young Mind

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2016 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's.  Today's word is "Y".
              
My theme is “Human Characteristics”.  Today I chose “Young Mind”.

Bursting energy
Ever ready keen young mind
New start, age a count


~ KARAN

As they say “it’s all in the mind, age is just a number”. It so true, as long as one has desire, fervor and energy and is ready to go for it with all heart, no age can stop one from setting new goals and achieving them!

Xenial

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2016 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's.  Today's word is "X".
              
My theme is “Human Characteristics”.  Today I chose “Xenial”.

Leave the doors ajar
Xenial with guests, strangers
May have pleased angles


~ KARAN 

Xenial in particular is defined as “friendly relationship between host and guest”, however here I have used it in a broader sense with an effort to drive home a point how we are turning recluse. Here in India we emphasize on Atithi Devo Bhava which in literal translation in English means 'The guest is equivalent to God' or 'Be one for whom the guest is God'. However we have long forgone that.  Let alone for others but as mentioned in the teachings in almost all of the holy scriptures across religions which I vaguely quote here one must atleast for one's own-self greet the guest with open arms:

“Do not neglect to show hospitality to guests and strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.”

Wicked

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2016 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's.  Today's word is "W".
              
My theme is “Human Characteristics”.  Today I chose “Wicked”.

Misguided young souls
Disgruntled minds, failing pray
To the wicked will


~ KARAN 

The world has turned intolerant and unmindful whereby leaving people to fend for themselves. Add to it the frustration of joblessness and lack of opportunity the youth today is the most vulnerable species and the radical organizations are wasting no time in tapping them and luring them into the life of hell for their sole wicked willed interests.

No need to know it
Still questioning is his right
Is vacuous mind

~ KARAN 

These days more often than not we come across people who show a lack of thought or intelligence while deliberating and debating. Case in point spokespersons of various political parties.

Ubiquitous

My theme is “Human Characteristics”.   Today I chose “Ubiquitous”.


Apple, Mango, Grape
He wanted it all, got none
Ubiquitous trait

~ KARAN

It’s due to our desire to be present everywhere and get everything we fail to enjoy the one we have at that point in time.

Thrifty

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2016 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's.  Today's word is "T".
              
My theme is “Human Characteristics”.  Today I chose “Thrifty”.



"Bought a bottle of water for Rs.20 he happily quenched thirst. Months later he readily paid Rs.100 for it. A year after hopping shops he finally found one and had to offer Rs.500 for same bottle. Couple of years later even Rs.10,000 could not fetch him one, he realized being thrifty would have been wise."

~ KARAN
We have to come to realize that even money can’t buy everything, you may millions with you but the resources are limited. One has to be wise and cunning in using them or should I say wasting them in case of water.

Her modesty outraged
She went to the cops hopeful
Met salacious eyes


 ~ KARAN 


It’s very insulting and sad that rather than helping a woman in distress cops show seductive interest in her plight.

~ KARAN 

Even after women coming at par and excelling in every thought about field, the society still look down upon them, especially in rural India.
