Mumbai blues, the other side of mumbai ,

From an ease paced life to the fast tracked one is a sea of change. This side of mumbai is not what I have been too well aversed with, though mumbai was no new for me - flocks of people travelling from one destination to the next, running through the race of life , purpose or no purpose the travel continues to make the ends meet...

This time around the preferred mode of commuting is the public transport unlike what I have been used to.. When one looks around - railway station, bus stop, roads at peak hours or no peak hours ( every hour is a waking hour , and every hour is a peak hour ) one comes face to face with the reality of life. One push and you are in the herd of people travelling by trains/bus, one push and you are out .. it looks like a mass movement..

No matter you are fresh when you start your day into the sweltering mass , you end up bathing with sweat and dirt , till you reach and breathe the air conditioned office air..

Phew!! No time to halt, no time for oneself..and yet this land of opportunity has thousands in number reaching to get engulfed in the existing mass for brighter futures unless they forget their dreams in the wilderness of this fast life..!! Life is...!!!

Some of Rumi Ur's sayings..

Here are few of Rumi Ur's sayings which I liked out of quite a few quotes on HT edition today..Go ahead .. enjoy..

1) You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life.
2) Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.
3) Observe the wonders as they occur around you. Don't claim them. Feel the artistry moving through and be silent.
4) Everyone see the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished it. Whoever has polished it more sees more - more unseen forms becomes manifest to him.
5) I died a mineral and became a plant. I died a plant and became an animal. I died an animal and I was man. Why should I fear ? When was I less by dying ?
( This dosent fall exactly in line with the Karma theory. But I liked the thought of not to fear of death. )
6) Silence is the language of God. All else is poor translation.
7)Who could be so lucky ? Who comes to the lake of water and sees the reflection of the moon.
8) If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?
9) Do you know what the music is saying ? "come follow me and you will find the way. Your mistakes can also lead you to the truth.

little wonders..

Small dreams,
Big dreams,
Expected moves,
Unexpected roves,
Strong voices of mind,
of what is expected (and)
what could be the unexpected,
Something to leave behind,
Something to take and move forward,
New moments to set the mind (on)
Memories lane would point backward,
but as I take this ride,
with a stride,
Challenges on the way,
All would be for the good ahead in the road that lay,
Rejoice everthing that comes on the way,is what this heart say(s).
