This poem, I wrote over so many months, long back, sometime in 2001/2002. It has been my all time personal favorite!
A writer does it with a pen, a painter does it with a brush
A photographer simply shuts his right eye..
A player does it with his spirits, a teacher does it with his knowledge
A mother does it with her care, a father uses his understanding
A mechanic uses his skill
Sachin uses his bat, Anand uses his brain
An Engineer uses his plan.
Newton needed an apple, Archimedes needed a bath
What will i need?
Last year, I bought a domain name for myself and decided to maintain it with my blogs / updates. After much thinking, analyzing and lot of other stressful stuff, I finally liked the wordpress blog and installed it on my website.
Now, I promise to keep this place updated!
Today, I was going through my old blog [http://aseemshakuntal.blogspot.com] and was reading it. Just writing down here, some of the posts I really liked there.
- my first post
- making of a poet
- Anyways, the poem
- IIITC Rocks
- Black, a touching poem
- Fall in love
The above posts are in the chronological order of appearance on my blog.
Another post, that I like a lot is this:
“Today is the first day to the rest of my life..
Yes, each day is the first day of my life but as I begin this day, I have no idea what the outcome will be.
Yes, this is the true of each day, but today, in particular is a day when the outside forces have a great influence on my life.
Yes, they do everyday, but today is the day when luck could play a major role in my life.
Yes it does everyday, but today a path forward in my life will be established, I don’t know in which direction.
Yes, each day is such day, but today is the day when important decisions will be made.
Yes, decisions are made everyday, but today I will have no control over them.
Yes, we seldom have any control over the important decisions, but today will have a great impact on the decisions I face tomorrow and I just wish, I knew how it will turn out.
Yes, I never will have this foresight but today is a scary day, as it could really pave a path to the unknown.
Yes, a path anew is paved every day but today’s outcome could result in a challenging tomorrow.
Yes, challenge is a good thing, but I have no idea how I will handle this particular one.
Yes, this is the point of this challenge, but what if things become really hard?
Yes, I will probably figure it out along the way but what if I give up?
Yes, you are right, perhaps I never would.”
