Lady was travelling in a train with a 8 years old kid… they both were reading Ramayana….
It seemed unbelievable to most of the fellow passengers.
Then one of them got up and asked…
“Maam in today world the kids who are born yesterday play with smartphone and this kid is reading Ramayana.. How come he is not with playing phone or a tablet? How come he listens to you and discusses Lord Rama in detail and how did you make him do that?”
To this the woman calmly replied “Sir, kids do not listen to us but they sure do copy us.”

without the sweet life of love,
living in a burden –
as you have seen .
अरमानों को पूरा करने के लिए .
कई रातों की नींद अौर
साज़िश ख़्वाबों की
पूरी नहीं होने दीं।
ज़ुबा बया करती रही अपने ज़ज़्बात।
तेज़ बयार चली और अरमानों का चाँद
छुप गया बादलों के आग़ोश में.
आवाज़ बिखर गई
टूटे काँच की किरचियों की तरह,
साथ हीं बिखर गए अरमानों के टुटे टुकड़े।
Whatever happens in your life,
no matter how troubling things might seem,
do not enter the neighbourhood of despair.
Even when all doors remain closed, God will open up a new path only for you.
Be thankful! It is easy to be thankful when all is well.
A Sufi is thankful not only for what he has been given but also for all that he has been denied.
