Faithful Friendly Fences…

Whenever I see the word Fence, I at once remember my vast garden which is badly in need of a fence. Fence is a must for any field or garden to keep the stray animals and intruders away from them. My frequent requests for a nice fence for my beautiful garden went unheard by one and all. When I think of the fence being built in our Nation’s Border between our land and neighbourhood country’s land area, I strongly feel that fencing of our Nation’s all the borders is a must.

In the poem “Mending Walls” the poet Robert Frost says,” Good Fences Make Good Neighbours.” I feel Robert Frost is correct in saying this.
Recently in “The Times Of India” the word I again and again noted in the “European Refugee Crisis” is Fence and Fencing the Borders. Fencing the borders of 28 European Countries was the constant talk in Europe during the Refugee Crisis. I got shocked to see the Pitiable, sympathetic conditions of Fenceless European Countries. Can we Create fencing between two Countries when they are parted not with a land area but with water and ocean or rivers? Yes, says USA’ s Navy Experts. Now a days in American Navy a new but highly useful research is going on about the highly sophisticated technology for creating strong, impenetrable fencing between the nation’s which have common waters between them. So really my friend, in my life fence is the one and the only word without thinking of which and without pronouncing of which I can’t spend my day.

In my final talk I request our India’s Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi to take seriously American Poet Robert Frost ‘s  Saying,
“Good Fencing makes Good Neighbours” and request our PM to fence India Strongly in his period as PM. 

My Desire is to fence the field, to fence the garden, to fence the country and to spread Friendship and Fun.

Ignite The Fire Inside You…

Six people, one room and an empty corridor was the place where my journey of self realization and journey of a beautiful experience started. The room was moist; hardly was it an audible place. The sound of the constant rotating fan almost absorbed each and every sound that was generated inside the room. There sat our lecturer in front of us. She was teaching us Electronics subject. It so happened that instead of 22 people there were only five people present for the lecture. It was an obvious occurrence in our college after holidays. The lecturer could not start with the usual course as the class strength was weak. After some primary teaching, we still had an hour to spend. Few glances, few futile talks and then lecturer came upon a question of our future plan.

The other four shared their views about their future. Quite confident they sounded through their talks. They were so dedicated and well planned for their future. The turn came to me. The lecturer asked me about my future plans. I, with a little nervousness told about my future plans. I told her that I want to be an Entrepreneur. Doesn’t that sound great as a future plan? Ya, it does. She asked about my progress towards my dream. She asked me whether I Know the Important things needed to establish a business. I shared few which I knew and later I told her that I haven’t explored much about it. She asked me” If you are not going to do it now then When. You are doing your Studies in a particular field right now. And after Two years would you go out and explore the Field. Is that what you mean? Whatever you want to do you should be planning about it from now. You should know about it from now. You should plan properly. And Entrepreneurship is a big task. You should know what you want to do and must work upon it.” I gave a thought to it.

It was quite easier for me to say my dreams inside the four walls and in front of five people who were there to listen to me. It is quite easier. But outside the walls if I am not working towards my dreams then there are thousand mouths waiting to insult me, to fail me, to speak ill of me, to say that my dreams were just high talks and nothing else, to joke upon my dreams, my aspirations and my life.

Would I allow that? That totally depends on my present action. I can’t allow people doubt my dreams. I am not doing this to show someone but to prove that I Am Born for A Purpose and I won’t Die without achieving it.

Well this experience thought me two things:

Your Happiness is totally in your Hands.

And the Second,

Keep The Fire Burning inside you. And never let yourself be the victim of the circumstances. Go dream and convert it into a beautiful reality and truth of your life.





Is Life The Entry Gate Of Friendship?

Fame is a food that dead men eat,-
I have no stomach for such meat.
In little light and narrow room,
They eat it in the silent tomb,
With no kind voice of comrade near
To bid the banquet be of cheer.

But Friendship is a nobler thing,-
Of Friendship it is good to sing.
For truly, when a man shall end,
He lives in memory of his friend,
Who doth his better part recall,
And of his faults make funeral.

Henry Austin Dobson



What impart I delivered from this poem? Praises and fame are heaped over the humans only after his death.

In the Cases of Majority of people especially famous people, the food of fame is not possible during their life time. If fame is considered as a food in most cases, it is supplied to the men only after his death, so fame is dead Men’s Food. During their life time, they are supplied criticisms and scolding as food. As fame is the food which people supply to a man after his death, the man has to take it in his small cabin of tomb and that also alone. No companionship at all. In solitude and loneliness the dead man has to eat the food fame which is given to him by the society.


The poet has compared fame and friendship. Friendship is really a highly adorable and nobler thing. We live in the hearts and memories of our friends even after our death. Like fame it is not supplied to us in our tomb after the death and we are not destined to eat that food of friendship alone in our tomb. Instead, friendship reaches us when we are alive. It lives in this world even after us. And our friends eat this precious food of friendship even when they are alive. So , friendship is not the food which the dead Man only eat  like fame. Instead, friendship is the food which the living men eat in companionship and in group. What a nice and touching comparison between fame and friendship the poet has made in this poem. I will remember this poem forever in my life.

The Precious Boon Of Planet Earth-Water

Whenever I see Ocean which is fully filled up with water even though the water is highly salty I feel very very  Happy. Ocean is my weakness and a favorite. I always feel my heart light and pleasant whenever I see myself in the seashores and riverbeds. Rivers, Waterfalls, lakes, streams all give the Pleasure of water. In our Universe our Earth is the one and the only lucky planet which has been blessed with water. Rain is the supplier of water all over the world. Rainy Water preservation and Protection is the important issue all over the world.


In other planets like Mars, Moon, etc you can’t see even a drop of water. No water remained signs even you can see there. So we should thank god for his grateful deed of providing water to our earth. I daily Pray to God that very soon all the other Planets of our galaxy should have both drinkable and usable water and oceans in their land. Is No Life Without Air There And Without Water there is No survival at all. Undoubtedly water is an unique wonder of this earth. India’s Prime Minister Mr.Narendra Modi in all His Monthly Radio Program“Mann Ki Baat” surely gives a few Minutes talk for water and it’s savings. Let Me pray to God For more and more water for Earth and other planets also.
