Love is......

Love is patient,love is kind. It does not envy,it does not boast, it is not proud.It is not self-seeking,it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong things. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.- Corinthians 13:4- 8a

We practise the exact opposite of this in real life.We're impatient and unkind. We envy, we boast,we're proud. We're self seeking, easily angered, and keep a record of wrong things. We delight in evil and are too blinded to see the truth. We hurt, we never trust, we never hope, we never persevere.We fail and continue failing.

Every piece of loving advice from parents makes us impatient and we retort with horrendous unkind diatribes. Love and attention makes us boastful and proud(remember the last time you felt thankful for the attention someone gave you?). We are self -seeking, the slightest of bruise to our ego angers us and the records of wrong things burden us till we become stagnant.

I'm afraid I've never loved anyone unconditionally in the 24 years of my life. How many of us have? I'd been feeling a strange unrest, a bit too often lately.I knew I had questions, but wasn't able to comprehend them.It wasn't the answer but questions that I was looking for. And just when I'd given up,exhausted of searching,exhausted of thinking and explaining, I found them in these lines.

Like someone once commented, We shall overcome....!
We'll accept love and ourselves. We'll accept ourselves and love. The journey ahead....peace!

The People of India...

"What are you doing!!! Note this number and give a missed call on it. Have you blogged about the the Jan Lokpal Bill??? We have to support Anna Hazare's crusade against corruption!!!"

I woke up startled. Was that really my Dad calling!!!! Since the earliest of my memories, such conversations have always had me advocating social service and causes with Dad giving me the "Do as you wish look!"

My facebook home page, blackberry messenger, message box, mail box, its everywhere! The Jan Lokpal Bill. Is it the answer to one of the biggest deterrents of our nations growth : Corruption?

Although it seems ironical to have a committee of people that would be a watchdog to the "government chosen by the people, of the people and for the people" only time can answer this big question. In spite of the questions it poses, if the bill wipes off the dirt in our system, Kudos!

The strength of a mans character, power of masses and the awakening of people's conscience. The phenomena was triumphatic!

Every individual who contributed to Hazare's fight for this noble cause added to the beginning of a glorious era.An era of hopes, truth and freedom. The success and might of this bill is a question mark in my head, but the success and might of each mans soul who contributed to its acceptance, who percieve this to be the path to a better India is an answer to my hopes.

Dad. In my eyes anything that you support is worth millions of voices. A man who inspired you, inspired thousands of others and brought about this revolution, is a legend. And with this legend, my heart leaps with joy to see the victory of people, the people of India! :)

Dear BLog....

Dear Blog, How does it feel being in a universe where the world can reach out to you? No boundaries, no limits, no shackles, no inhibitions. You must be feeling beautiful being you, dont you? You have noone to answer to, you have nothing to care about, you only emote and express. Every part of you has someones thoughts, emotions,weaknesses and most importantly strengths in it. Every part of you is a moment of peace for someone. Every part of you is a moment of passion for someone. When words and explanations fail, you make sense. When the noise outside deafens,emotions get overwhelming, when the love and protection of a lifetime becomes suffocating,you free someone of all the burdens, only to become immortal forever with the truth in every part of you. You are a moment of magic today and would be a moment of magic years later. And the magic in you sparkles around,breathing life into someone everytime they touch you or get a glimpse of you. Wish you a beautiful life ahead. Love, Esha :)
