Precious Daughters 🌹🌹

Happy Daughter’s Day

Daughters are most precious, and great gifts of God.

With the presence of a daughter, life is full of happiness.

Having a daughter is vital for the fathers and brothers, and of course for the mothers. She brings a balance in the family.

As she grows up, she is a friend, and always a well wisher. A person, whom you can always trust, in tough times, in happier times, or sad times.

She always stands by you, and never leaves you alone.

The best compliment for a mother, with regard to her daughter is, ‘She is just like you.’

And, a daughter feels happy, when people say, ‘You have grown up into a wonderful woman, just like your mother.’

A daughter is a little girl, who grows up into a closest friend and any girl, who has been a good daughter, is sure to become a good wife.”

सिलसिला आने-जाने का— हिंदी कविता

हिन्दी दिवस की शुभकामनाएँ, Image Source: Google Image

आज हिन्दी दिवस के सुअवसर पर कुछ अपनी मातृभाषा में लिखने की इच्छा है। आशा है पाठकों को पसंद आएगी 🙏🙏🌹🌹

मौसम आते हैं, मौसम जाते हैं,

दिन यूँ ही कटते चले जाते हैं,

सुबह होती है, तो शाम का इंतज़ार होता है,

रातें आती हैं, तो सुबह का इंतज़ार होता है,

एक त्योहार बीतता है, तो अगले का इंतज़ार होता है,

लोग आते हैं, लोग चले जाते हैं,

बस, एक हम हैं, जो वहीं के वहीं,

खड़े, देखते रह जाते हैं,

आने-जाने का ये निरन्तर सिलसिला,

जीवन-चक्र का एहसास दिला जाता है ।

Rakshabandhan: A Beautiful Indian Festival to Celebrate the Brother-Sister Relationship

Rakhi ki Thali ©Chitrangadasharan

One of the most beautiful Indian festivals is Rakshabandhan.

This festival is about the special and pious bond, to celebrate the brother-sister relationship.

When the siblings are growing up together at their parents home, it is always about fun, sweets, gifts etc.

But, as we grow older, it’s unlikely the brother-sister will remain in the same city, or may be in the same country.

Yes, life takes the siblings to different directions, due to education, work, career, even marriage.

It’s then that the festival of Rakshabandhan becomes an emotional festival.

The sacred thread, which the sisters tie on the wrist of their brothers, to wish them happiness, prosperity, good health and all good wishes, can’t be done in the same way, as it was done in their childhood days.

So, there is a practice to send the colourful and auspicious Rakhis in envelopes, via post, or couriers, or even online.

That little small sacred thread, called Rakhi is symbolic of the pure and true love and the special bond, which the brother and sister share with each other.

If the brother is married, a special and beautiful Rakhi is also included for the sister-in-law.

Perhaps, it’s only in Indian culture and traditions, that the brother-sister relationship is celebrated in this beautiful manner.

Because, this is a relationship, Forever. 🌹🌹

Family—My Thoughts

©Chitrangadasharan

Family is like Music,

Some high notes,

Some low notes,

But always, a beautiful song.

Love binds together,

Understanding keeps it going,

Mutual respect and care,

Makes it work, each time.

Communication is the key,

Talking to each other,

Rather than, holding on the grudges,

Makes it easier to find solutions.

Family is precious,

It will always support you,

Through thick and thin,

Cherish it, love it, enjoy it.

Stay Connected—Poem

Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan

To someone near or far,

After a long time,

A simple phone call,

A simple text message,

For no specific reason,

To know their welfare,

Greetings, and good wishes,

To uplift and reassure,

To exchange pleasantries,

Sometimes, it’s important

To listen, to be there,

To be the healing touch,

The magic of staying connected,

The medicine fails,

The person heals.
